Amulet of Safekeeping Discussion
1 week ago
Two things to remark. One, why do you run Amulet of Safekeeping? It's just not as good as any other board clear like for example Fiery Cannonade is, if your goal is to clear token decks; also notice that amulet is an artifact which doesn't make sense in your deck while cannonade is an instant. Two is that Precision Bolt is just not as good as Lightning Strike is since it could potentially turn into one drop with your shaman; I would consider switching these. Your deck is very similar to what I am trying to achieve with one of mine, except I am also adding win condition (cyclops) and card to play around there. Check it out, maybe your will get some ideas out of it. Erratic Thud

Thanks for the suggestions. I think Amulet of Safekeeping and Shield of the Realm can be replaced. As for Enhanced Surveillance, is it worth it (with the amount of surveil in the deck) or do I just cut it?
I mostly play both frequently, Brawl is super popular where I'm at. I do think there's a different dynamic with 1v1 and FFA. Will let you know when I get to test this out.

Thanks for replying so quick DangoDaikazoku! I have indeed watched After Story. No lie, I sobbed.
Thanks for your recommendations on the 3 drops, I was thinking a few of those as well. After looking over some more cards on Gatherer, I came up with a couple more ideas as well, if you wouldnt mind giving me your opinion? I know you're not used to the standard meta, which is totally fine.
The ones I'd like feedback on, and why I chose them, are these:
Chromatic Lantern, replacing 2 Pillar of Origins, opening another two 2 drops, which I would replace with Amulet of Safekeeping, Blink of an Eye, Board the Weatherlight, Discovery / Dispersal, Find / Finality, Revitalize, Root Snare, Search for Azcanta Flip, Song of Freyalise, Thaumatic Compass Flip, or I could add back some more walls.
Quasiduplicate, for extra Walls, plus Jump Start.
Ritual of Rejuvenation, for life gain plus card draw
Wayward Swordtooth, land advantage, plus possible win condition
Sinister Sabotage, counter spell, plus surveil to potentially get rid of something I dont need.
Slaughter the Strong, could potentially board wipe my opponent
Sprouting Renewal, convoke, plus 2/2 creature, or artifact/enchantment removal
Sylvan Awakening, potential alternate win condition
Unwind, counter plus untap lands
Broken Bond, artifact/enchantment removal, plus land advantage

I'd like some input on a ruling. Do Fevered Visions and Spiteful Visions target? Someone in my playgroup controlled an Amulet of Safekeeping and believed it would prevent the affects of the two aforementioned cards.

I really haven't had too much luck with Waste Not. I'm not giving up on it just yet though.
Unless there is some weird ruling I don't know about, Amulet of Safekeeping stacks.

I really like the Crucible of Worlds in the side. Amulet of Safekeeping is another card i've been considering. I like the token hate and the countering it causes, but does it also stack with itself? Say, an opponent would have to pay for every amulet you have out? I can see how the Liliana's Caress can be beneficial in the Hollow One match up. How do you feel about the Waste Not in the same match up?

I like the card a lot. It's really good on the play when the opponent has to mulligan because kills their free scry, likewise it can be good against Serum Visions and late game when people hold onto lands. I've found the life gain beneficial.
I ran this list the other day New Pox. I think 8Rack is in a good position right now. Especially with decks like Howling Mine on the rise. 2 cards I think are worthy of running are Liliana's Caress on the side. It single handily hoses Hollow One and can slow Steam Kin Red down as well. The second SB is Amulet of Safekeeping. This thing is pure Storm hate but also puts in work against stuff like Mardu Pyromancer or decks that rely on Lingering Souls. I'm only running 1 in my list but after testing it, it's certainly worth more slots.
