Ardent Plea Discussion

Birth of a Hero


Enchant Creature

Enchanted Creature has Protection from creatures with power 5 or greater


Totem Armor

to clarify, the Aura has the exalted, not the creature. See Angelic Benediction and Ardent Plea for precedent. Make a Sorcery that involves Exalted.

Add +2 Sublime Archangel Since she is insane. -1 Giltspire Avenger or Ardent Plea As cascading into path to exile, blossoming defense, or rancor with no creatures out is bad, or -1/2 Sigiled Paladin As he just seems very weak and you wont always have double white turn 2 with Cathedral of War , Breeding Pool , or basic island/forest draws? Also, Finest Hour (or Battlegrace Angel If you want a creature?) Looks very strong even though its 5 mana maybe replace one Rafiq of the Many with it or something?

Cheers elementalheroflamewingman! That is really helpful advice (sorry you had to wait so long for a reply, hahaha). You have convinced me and I have made some changes based on what you recommended.

Path to Exile is indeed an incredible card, MangoPunch; however I would not want to run the risk of accidentally cascading into it with Ardent Plea. For this reason, I eschew cards like Path to Exile in light of low-costing permanents and higher-costing control cards.

Heretic_Dragoon The way cascade is written, I cannot cast a 3-drop off of Ardent Plea, it has to be a spell that costs less (Than the cascade spell). Maybe I should put more creature removal in the board, Journey to Nowhere perhaps? I don't know what to take out though. I did initially want to go esper with this list, but having green just makes it so much easier to out value my opponent.

ChubyCryBaby Sry no. The Cascade on Bloodbraid Elf hits a random card with is not what i want to cascade into. I run no cards with a CMC of 2 or less to always hit Living End with my cascade cards. Elf is a good card but not here. I could also run Ardent Plea or Shardless Agent but think the 2 we run are enough.

josesalazar hey there, thought about cathedral too but it might cause some problems since it only produces colorless mana and enters the battle field tapped.

Considering the evasion creatures do you think 2x Invisible Stalker + 4x Aqueous Form and 4x Ardent Plea as a fetch arent enough?


Logan89 on Can Ardent Plea cast Research/Development?

3 years ago

In this case Ardent Plea will cascade the half referring to "research" from Research/Development?

Because its converted cost is only 2
