Agent of the Fates Discussion

IronLady on Green Black Deathtouch

I went the other way by creating a black/ red assassins deck. Has Agent of the Fates, Hand of Silumgar, Graveblade Marauder, Thrill-Kill Assassin and Ruthless Ripper

I then use instants to give all a first strike capacity. Really fun deck to play.

If you're running lots of combat tricks, including a creature with heroic will be very effective. I recommend swapping Thornbow Archer out for Tormented Hero, Agent of the Fates, Ashiok's Adept, or Bloodcrazed Hoplite.

As long as you're targeting Agent of the Fates with a spell (even an aura spell like Shimmering Wings), its heroic ability will trigger. Each time you cast it it's a new spell, even though it's the same card.

I feel like Agent of the Fates could find a home here. +1 from me!

robgould339, I think it entirely depends on your gameplan. If you're going for a more competitive deck, reanimator is the more powerful archetype. The deck doesn't really need deathtouch creatures to operate though, so it might be easier to start from scratch. By contrast, the deathtouch plan is weaker, but it is much more likely to thrive in a casual environment and will probably cost much less to build. As mentioned, I don't even think graveyard recursion is necessary in such a deck. I'd rather rely on card draw to keep fuel in the engine. Harvester of Souls, Harmonize, Shamanic Revelation, Phyrexian Arena- that sort of thing. Combining the strategies isn't awful, I just don't think it's altogether that necessary.

I'd probably stick to the deathtouch gameplan if I was building the deck since thematic homebrews are more my style. I'd probably run all the small guys, seeing as you only need 1 damage for deathtouch to work. Typhoid Rats, Ambush Viper, Deathmist Raptor, Vampire Nighthawk. Having a few beaters on the high end certainly doesn't hurt. Wurmcoil Engine was one really strong option that slipped my mind. Then, I'd just want ways to exploit deathtouch. Pathway Arrows + Glissa, the Traitor, Lure, Irresistible Prey + Agent of the Fates- anything in that ballpark.

Nice creature centric build, must be fun to play.

I would get a Command Tower in here.

You don't quite have enough spells targeting creatures to utilize Agent of the Fates, I would replace her with a Demonic Tutor so you can pull a REALLY fun Dragon to your hand, or the Coat of Arms.

Serra Avenger is a little weak for a turn 4 drop, and a wasted drop off a Kaalia of the Vast trigger. Angel of Despair, Lord of the Void, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Reya Dawnbringer, Hellkite Tyrant, all feel like better drops.

You have a few ways to cheat in the creatures, could ramp a bit more with Orzhov Signet or Boros Signet, or some other tricks like a Sneak Attack, Whip of Erebos and a Sundial of the Infinite to allow you to keep the creatures long term. With so many creatures would be pretty effective.

Take a look at Kiku, Night's Flower, Agent of the Fates, Stronghold Assassin, and maybe Queen Marchesa if you really want to go out there.

Samuel-Frederick on Mono White Heroic Auras

Hey there. For me, it doesn't feel like black is adding anywhere near enough here. For one mana I'd want 4x Trailblazer as well as the 4x Hoplite, then for two mana just drop the bloodcrazed and run the full 4x Skyguard, and 4x Hero of Iroas, as both of them are doing a lot more. Then when it comes to the enchantments, black isn't doing a great deal there either. The bonus of mono-white, the consistency of the land, and if you curve at two you can even drop the land to 18/19 as well. With black though you do get Agent of the Fates, who I love, but may not be fast enough for what you're looking for. He's so good though!

Ethereal Armor should be a four of. Ethereal Armor plus Hero of Iroas is awesome, and when I play it, I like to take advantage of both and run Hopeful Eidolon, Nyxborn Shieldmate, and Eidolon of Countless Battles. They are protection against removal and wrath, they are reduced in cost when bestowed from the Hero, and they count towards Ethereal Armor. They are so much more powerful than they may first appear. If you're sticking with black, then you get these beasts to choose from as well, Gnarled Scarhide, Spiteful Returned, and Herald of Torment. You could run Nighthowler as well, I'm not as keen on it in the build, but depends on what the decks you are against are like as well. He is good post wrath though!

I'd drop Predator's Gambit as you'll nearly always have multiple creatures on the field, and Edge of the Divinity as you don't have any creatures that can take advantage of it. Not the cheapest card but Daybreak Coronet is obviously all sorts of powerful! Spirit Mantle is also pretty popular, and really can tilt opponents who aren't ready for it.

Just a few things to have a think about, see if you like the sound of them.
