I'm torn on whether to have Rest in Piece or Ashes of the Abhorrent

jubale the Lich's Gateway deck is interesting. Something I think that might be interesting is taking out one of the Lyra Dawnbringer to put in one Resplendent Angel. I feel like your early card draw will help you get the one Lyra and that Lyra plus the Resplendent Angel on board can build an army that draws you a ton of cards once you hit Lich's Mastery. I also agree with you that I don't really like Ashes of the Abhorrent, at least not as a 4-of. You might just want some more targeted removal in some of those slots to pick off individual threats. All in all the deck seems fun though!

Great and fun deck! I love the flavour and can easily see how you could steal the day. If I should add something to the deck, it would be Ashes of the Abhorrent , Authority of the Consuls Blind Obedience that do what I love. Subtle but yet in the long run very effective way of stealing the game through a thousand small wounds.

If u feel like it, I would very much appreciate some feedback on my deck Zedruu & Norin BFF

Lich's Gateway

Standard jubale


All about gaining life to survive and take advantage of Lich's Gateway. I'm not a fan of Ashes of the Abhorrent I think (though I'd love for it to be great), so I'm thinking to cut it and put more something into the deck. Not really clear which aspect of the deck needs to be pushed.

Looks good so far! I love dinosaurs, they're super fun to play. Being a dino player myself, I have a lot of suggestions for you!

First off, I would suggest cutting some of the mana dorks, like Kinjalli's Caller, Knight of the Stampede, or Otepec Huntmaster. Although they can be helpful, I suggest cutting them to make room for better ramp. I also think cutting Priest of the Wakening Sun is a good idea; I didn't find him very useful whenever I played him in my deck, but maybe that's just me. Some more cards to reconsider are some of your sorceries, namely Anger of the Gods, Commune with Dinosaurs, and Sweltering Suns. While Anger the Gods and Sweltering Suns allow you to get the enrage trigger, I think they're a little on the weaker side. Not only would they deal a good amount of damage to each of your creatures (they would alone kill 9 of the creatures you currently have in your deck), they are also sorceries and are rather slow. Commune with Dinosaurs I didn't find useful when I playtested with it. As far as your enchantments go, I think Ashes of the Abhorrent, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, and Solemnity don't fit. It seems like you're worried about getting attacked and losing life, but as a dino player, you can't worry about those things. Dinosaurs are aggressive, so you need to put cards in that make them more aggressive rather than slow you down. Plus a lot of your dinosaurs involve +1/+1 counters, and solemnity doesn't allow you to put them on creatures.

To help you with these things, I suggest more ramp in the form of Kodama's Reach, Commander's Sphere, Zendikar Resurgent, Herald's Horn (sort of like ramp and card draw) and Mirari's Wake (the less budget option). In my mind, you can never have enough ramp, especially with an 8 cmc commander. I also think you need some more card draw, so I recommend cards like Elemental Bond, Sunbird's Invocation, Shamanic Revelation or Rishkar's Expertise. Both Elemental Bond and Sunbird's Invocation have worked wonderfully for me. As far as the enrage trigger, I saw you have Pyrohemia so that's a great start, but think about adding Rampaging Ferocidon. My dinosaur deck doesn't focus on the enrage mechanic, but maybe you'll find use of cards like Staff of Nin, Splintering Wind, Task Mage Assembly, or Bullwhip.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions, I hope I didn't overwhelm you. Great start though!

BMHKain on Varolz Voltron Help Needed.

1 month ago

I'm just going to put it straight for what I want for help:

  1. A cut to 100 (Obviously.)

  2. More stuff to use to fill the yard, & stuff to protect it from threats like Grafdigger's Cage & Ashes of the Abhorrent.

  3. Riftsweeper is in, so I'd like to have stuff to reuse from scavenging from Varolz, the Scar-Striped, & keep it up when needed. It's more than just Worldly Tutor You know...

  4. More rocks & less lands (Possibly...)

  5. If lands are to be yarded, I'd like some options to bring them back to play. A merfolk from Rivals of Ixalan can do this, & it shouldn't be just Crucible of Worlds, or Life from the Loam, you know...

6/finally: stuff to retrieve other things is opposed to mere permanents...

Good luck helping me out! It's rare to find Varolz with a Voltron/GoLion theme, you know... :)

This is better, but I'm not a fan of: Mardu Hordechief, Ajani's Mantra, Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign. I feel like the alternate wincons won't be possible since this is effectively a 1v1 and we won't be ignored as much as far as life totals.

Ashes of the Abhorrent is meh to me, its not that great and I'd almost say put in another board wipe instead. Since we're going token heavy, I suggest Martial Coup, Fumigate, Hour of Reckoning as good additions.

I suggest adding Knight of the White Orchid and/or Land Tax since you're only running a few black sources. White Sun's Zenith is another good mana dump as is Entreat the Angels

I feel like removing Emeria Shepherd might be a mistake.
