Aid the Fallen Discussion

wallisface on Bloodlord

Looks interesting, some thoughts:

1) very few modern decks use Planeswalkers at all - and for that reason i’d ditch The Elderspell entirely. If you’re planning on having a sideboard maybe run a few in there, but it’s just going to be too useless most of the time to run in the deck.

2) if you’re feeling like splashing a few dollars, Inquisition of Kozilek is a pretty nice upgrade to Duress .

3) Blood Divination feels very slow and kindof meh. I think this slot is better for running a killspell - either Victim of Night , Grasp of Darkness , or for a little more $$, Fatal Push .

4) Knight of the Ebon Legion seems bad, and Aid the Fallen is pretty slow and clumsy (and would be better-off just being another creature). I would suggest swapping them both with Gatekeeper of Malakir and Indulgent Aristocrat . Asylum Visitor could be an option as well.

I don’t think Aid the Fallen or Blood Divination are worth it

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

If you replaced 1 Nissa, Who Shakes the World and/or 1 Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with Vraska, Golgari Queen you have another set of combo's with Vraska sacking Wall of Lost Thoughts and World Shaper , then re-casting them by using the effects of Aid the Fallen or Muldrotha, the Gravetide . Her ultimate effect is just another bonus win-con.

Just saw the 2 Aid the Fallen , but you might consider adding more depending on how often you get stuck with nothing in your hand, waiting for each draw.

Kaya's Ghostform and Aid the Fallen are great cards... in limited. In constructed formats a lot of the time you’ll draw them late game and either not have a target, or wanting to be doing something else with your mana. Muldrotha can get back your other cards, so I would suggest Golgari Findbroker since it provides the same effect as Aid, but also comes with a body to block.

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist would just add another dimension to this deck.

I would want a few more removal spells, like Fatal Push .

Dimir Doppelganger could bean extra way to cheat high cmc creatures onto the field.

Glimpse the Unthinkable is useful in any mill deck.

Aid the Fallen can get spells back from the graveyard.

I would definitely try to work in Ashiok, Dream Render .

God-Pharaoh's Statue is just mean.

Other non-mill cards that I would consider are Thief of Sanity (disrupt), Telling Time , Dimir Charm , Spark Double , Kaya's Ghostform and Narset's Reversal

What about Aid the Fallen ? I think a Doom Whisperer would be cool, if you could find a way to get it from the yard to the field.

Jace's Triumph ?

Also, Chemister's Insight , you can cast that from the yard too.
