Ascendant Evincar Discussion
2 weeks ago
Wow, that's an exhaustive list with Dune analogies! I like how you thought of a representative card for each major character, location, and event.
(I personally somewhat associate Ascendant Evincar with Baron Harkonnen, although I guess Feyd-Rautha would be a better match for him, haha.)
I found your deck by doing a web search for Kaladesh and Frank Herbert's Dune. But to my surprise, I barely found anything on the subject.
Which is surprising to me, since this plane in particular appears to take so much inspiration from the novels:
A hot desert planet where the spice melange, err I mean aether, flows and inspires creativity. There's ornithopers and servos in between elaborate vehicles and automatons, yet no thinking machines.
And the Aetherborn seem to combine multiple concepts from the dune races. Their existence deeply linked with the aether. Keenly aware of their surroundings, living in the moment and making most out of the little amount of valuable life force they have, while looking for ways to prolong it somewhat. And just take a look at Syndicate Trafficker. Now those are some blue within blue eyes! If that doesn't sound like the description of a Fremen eager to get their melange, I don't know what is!

Just noticed you upvoted my sliver deck. Thank you. Had a look at this and I would definitely look at your land count and ramp. Would suggest about 36 to 37. There is also some real good vampires out there. Here's a few:
Hope this helps

Ascendant Evincar is good in any mono black deck (he is in my “how to fit this in” pile) personally I’d drop the hedron matrix and pick up Vessel of Endless Rest I don’t like the eldrazi monument that much and you have the acromas memorial

There are a few main options available; If your meta is increasingly dork-dependent - Ascendant Evincar is quite useful as a pseudo- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . Not ideal, but very much an option. I'll create an additional section for the description to show potential options for this flex-slot. I also feel that Minister of Pain encompasses a flex-slot, as in a dorkless environment the low-sweep is underwhelming (especially when it doesn't remove tymna)

Had some painful non-bo experiences today. Thrilling Encore isn't that good with Anafenza exiling their stuff. Probably better off with something like Make a Stand.
Plague of Vermin helped them more than it hurt. Although I gave my guys trample, their Soul Warden and Mycoloth equalized my alpha strike. I could really use a one-sided Ascendant Evincar of some kind. I was thinking of Amulet of Safekeeping, although it nerfs Ogre Slumlord. I might have to go full anti-token with Virulent Plague.
I'm leaning too hard on Merciless Eviction to undo a fortress. I could use a Nev Disk or even Purify. I also need a way to break through with my developed rat army, so I'm considering AEther Shockwave. I also need to reuse a non-rat card, possibly just add Regrowth.
