AlexRuzhyo on Kaalia of the Vast - "Competitive Aggro"

1 day ago

Faith's Reward was in the deck at one point, though I think I swapped it out for Ghostway. Ghostway offered more creature-specific protection and at-will ETB abuse, where Faith's Reward either required a sac outlet of an opponent to use a "destroy" to maximize value. In the rare cases you had the 8 mana to cast it and a MLD spell it was pretty neat but games rarely ran on that long.

Razaketh does add more value to Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward, even if you're only sacrificing Kaalia to tutor for a lock piece. Obviously sacrificing more generates more value, but at the same time, you may not always have 2+ other creatures on-board, and sacrificing that much opens you up to a bigger hit should SS/FR get countered.

If you are in a position to abuse SS/FR, I believe the best time to cast would be at the end of an opponent's turn. You could tutor/abuse ETBs and un-tap with Kaalia ready to swing. I think if I were to tutor with Razaketh on my turn with enough mana to cast SS/FR, I'd wrath from the lock piece that turn instead. In that case you'd definitely want something other than Kaalia to use for tutor fodder and keep your value engine going. Losing one beater isn't huge if it means securing the board.

I'll definitely revisit both cards once I have a copy of Razaketh. There's a lot I want to test with him. For one, he pairs greatly with Angel of Serenity - sacrifice her in response to her ETB to permanently exile three cards. In rare cases, can also see swinging with Kaalia and sacrificing her with her trigger on the stack, tutoring for something to bring down on the board.

I like the Gideon of the Trials idea. What would you recommend pulling in order to add it? I was thinking pull the Angel of Serenity and one Ghost Quarter.

Coolie2 on Sisay, Captain of Eldrazi

I've been thinking about maybe adding red to the deck, which would let me add in cards that would be helpful. I made a new list of possible cards to add, including possible red ones, so I would appreciate thoughts on whether or not I should add red to the deck, and on the list:

Mayael the Anima

Angel of Serenity

Dragonlord Dromoka

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Selvala, Explorer Returned

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Spellbreaker Behemoth

Iroas, God of Victory

Gaea's Herald

Archetype of Endurance

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Xenagos, the Reveler

Warstorm Surge

Calliber on Help me make a bad ...

I'm sure you're perfectly aware but I'm just gonna mention it, but Karmic Guide can not be targeted by Fates.

Angel of Serenity would make an excellent addition to Fates despite the casting cost. Pentarch Paladin also works well.

"in typical EDH"... what type of meta comment is this? I hope you don't mind me using this in future online posts (and properly quoting and referencing the rightful owner of these beautiful words).

Yosei is a white creature >5 mana. If looking for big creatures that could be used "in typical EDH" that are not (hold up, what are the exact words) used with 'big combos or locks', and that are (mono)white, why not use any of the following instead: Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Angel of Serenity(!) (any angel really), Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (does perma -2/-2 count as 'token lock'), and/or Sun Titan (does Saffi Eriksdotter interactions count as 'big combo')?

Do I need to continue talking about why yosei and other fun/good cards are not used?
Currently stated:
outclassed by competitive 'big combo' cards,
outclassed by 'locks',
outclassed by not-'big combo' cards,
outclassed by 'typical edh' big creatures that 'are pretty common'?

Oh, kokusho (should only be) used in two deck archetypes, dragons and kokusho loops. This is a staggering amount.

Nice deck!

Since you have plenty of mana ramp, it might be worth adding another Emeria, The Sky Ruin to ensure that you can take advantage of resurrection, or some Weathered Wayfarer to fetch. Having a couple 1-drops couldn't hurt!

Considering the number of legendary angels you're running, I highly recommend adding Avacyn, Angel of Hope. She's a win-con all on her own and can seriously mess with your opponents.

While keeping the casual nature of the deck in mind, it has a lot of inconsistencies. It might be worth cutting some non-legendaries to make play-sets of other non-legendaries.

Finally, Wall of Omens can easily replace Angelic Wall. You have plenty of flying blockers and the card draw is nice, especially if you pair it with some utility flicker like Cloudshift. Cloudshift (or Restoration Angel, keeping in mind angel ineligibility) also has great synergy with Knight of the White Orchid, Angel of Serenity, Hixus, Prison Warden, Sunblast Angel, and Thalia's Lancers.

If you'd like to compare notes, check out my angel midrange (still a work in progress) or Drcfan's Devotion to White Angels!

ive-been-degaussed on Ephara's Flashing Bouncers

3 weeks ago

One thing I noticed is that while you have a lot of ways to bounce your creatures and flash them in, you don't have a ton of good ETB triggers to abuse them with.


  • Deputy of Acquittals, Quickling: You already have enough of the "ETB: bounce another creature" effects that I think you can cut the two weakest and not see any loss.

  • Shielded Aether Thief: You're almost never going to get enough energy to make this guy's draw trigger go off.

  • Rattlechains: All of your Spirits in the deck already have flash, so the lord effect is useless; and I don't see enough instances in which the ETB trigger will matter.

  • Tromokratis, Medomai the Ageless: Both are too big and slow, and don't fit the flicker theme.

  • Oracle's Insight: Too slow and fragile, particularly when your team doesn't plan on sticking around for an extended period.

  • Burnished Hart: You don't want to be sacrificing your creatures in this sort of deck for effects. I'd put Solemn Simulacrum in this slot.

  • Edifice of Authority: Lots of work for not much payoff.

  • Dusk / Dawn: Played this in my build, didn't love it. Always had a few creatures this wouldn't hit that I'd want it to, or vice-versa. The back side is nice but doesn't salvage it.

  • Thought Reflection: This is probably overkill. You're drawing enough cards already: you don't need to deck yourself in the process.


  • Saltskitter: The first card to go into any Ephara build. Lets her trigger on your opponents' creatures too.

  • Eldrazi Displacer, Mistmeadow Witch: These two are invaluable to any blink deck, as they can both recur your ETB triggers and protect against enemy aggressors. Make sure you add enough colorless sources for the Displacer, though.

  • Brago, King Eternal: Another flicker-er to add to the pile. Although you can't activate him whenever, he can get you a ton of triggers at once.

  • Karmic Guide: Reanimation is always helpful to have around, and you can respond to the echo trigger by flickering her to get another ETB.

  • Venser, Shaper Savant: One of the best creatures to be able to flicker repeatably. His ETB trigger when timed properly is just brutal.

  • Solemn Simulacrum: See my comments on Burnished Hart.

  • Stonehorn Dignitary: Useful for shutting down late-game aggression.

  • Angel of Serenity: A great piece of removal. She can hit up to three creatures at once, and if she exits the battlefield they don't come right back, but instead go back to hand. If you flicker her repeatedly, she's a good way to get creatures back from your graveyard to hand.

  • Supreme Verdict: Yeah, it's a bit pricy, but it's the best wrath in WU.

  • Forsake the Worldly: You need more artifact/enchantment hate. This is cheap and in Standard now.

Looking at your card choices (outside of the Tundra), I assume you're on something of a budget. With that in mind, some must-adds:

AEtherling, Angel of Serenity, Archaeomancer, Cloudblazer, Deadeye Navigator, Eldrazi Displacer, Karmic Guide, Mistmeadow Witch, Mulldrifter, Reflector Mage, Saltskitter (so good with Ephara!), Stonecloaker, Stonehorn Dignitary, Venser, Shaper Savant, Whitemane Lion, Azorius Signet, Darksteel Ingot, Detention Sphere, Counterspell, Ghostly Flicker, Momentary Blink, Sphinx's Revelation, Rite of Replication

I know that's a lot, but I noticed a good number of cards in your list that are pretty low-impact. Once you've taken yours for a few spins, you should be able to figure out what cuts to make.
