Architects of Will Discussion

killer_eye on The Sultai Song (cycling deck)

1 month ago

ok, went to a small tournament and the result was quite surprising:

Mulldrifter: isn't good from what i've thought initially, it's so slow and after the game i just realized that Krosan Tusker is a much better card over it. it's funny how i recall that from my old jund list i included tusker only to be cut in my last version of the deck because i feel it was slow.

overall, this list is still in testing and i'd still continue in sultai colors as o believe that Architects of Will is the better cycling card over Monstrous Carabid and sultai has a better sideboard option than jund

Since you don't have Goyfs yet, I would try to maximize the value of Grim Flayer here. I run BUG Traverse with 4x Flayer and 4x Goyf, and I very often find myself Traversing for Flayer instead, he really is that good. To make him his best, a full set of Mishra's Bauble will go a long way towards enabling Delirium and providing graveyard fuel to power out early Tasigurs and flip JVP quickly. You might also consider Architects of Will, since it counts as multiple card types towards delirium, which should in theory be helpful when running Delve threats next to Flayer.

While I do enjoy wrecking people with Ashiok, it really isn't the greatest mainboard card in the current hyper-aggressive meta. 4x Liliana of the Veil would be ideal here, but I understand if it's not in the budget. You might consider replacing a couple or all of the Ashioks with Liliana, the Last Hope, which should be right at home here, recurring your threats, killing small creatures and helping fuel the graveyard.

Also, have you tested Cast Down yet? I run two in BUG Traverse and BUG Midrange and the card has overperformed. It's about as close to Terminate as we have in our colors and hits nearly everything that's relevant in the current meta.

Lastly, have you tried Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet? He lines up well against some of the top decks currently, and is probably overall stronger than Ashiok.

Leaning towards blue seems to open up some pretty strong options.

ZorrosRage on The End is just the middle

I would do main deck like below depending on graveyard hate you want. Just feel Faerie Macabre should be main deck as well with so many graveyard use there is.

I would possibly -4 Architects of Will -2 Avalanche Riders +3 Lurching Rotbeast +3 Faerie Macabre with 1Faerie Macabre in the side

Architects of Will should be a consideration

After testing with this a bit more, I've made a couple of tweaks do this deck.

Recent Changes

3x Tolaria West is the correct number. Entering into play tapped is a real cost and you often want the land instead of the tutor. I swapped out the forth copy in favor of:

1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is a good one-of tutor target for Tolaria West. If, for some reason, I can't animate my creatures with Living End, then I need a way to hard cast Architects of Will and Street Wraith.

1x Echoing Truth has proved clutch in the sideboard, useful in several matchups.

Matchup Notes

-Tolaria West is a great card for playing around targeted discard. If I've got a resolved As Foretold, I can hold the other half of the combo in my hand without it getting Thoughtsiezed away.

-Mulligan to Leyline against dredge. It's not worth it to keep other hands.

-Decks with a lot of targeted discards are rough matchups.

And Architects of Will just to cycle for two card types

I actually just took out the Courser of Kruphix. I was running 2 of those and 2 Phantom Wings. I discovered a few things when playtesting. First, Phantom Wings was more useful that I originally thought so I wanted to run three of them. Secondly, Courser of Kruphix is useful for some lifegain, blocking, and deck filtering, as well as the card types; however, I found the double green at 3CM was creating a conflict of interest with the double black at 3CM and 4CM. Finally, I just needed room for hand disruption spells and kill spells and the other creatures I run are better.

If I drop an Architects of Will for Courser of Kruphix id go down to two artifacts and up to four enchantments which really doesnt net me any advantage as far as the card types go.
