Ashiok's Adept Discussion

amicdeep on Echant, remove, repeat (HELP)

7 months ago

personally i would be tempted to either go all in on the nightsky or agent rather than split. have you considered going 4 agent 4 Ashiok's Adept and going all in on a controlling midrange shell (discard, removal and protection spells (like Tidehollow Sculler) id also add some utility spells that also can target like Dawn Charm and Valorous Stance id also consider Ephemerate as it protects your stuff from removal while triggering it, then i dose it again, it also has serious synergy with Tidehollow Sculler

another possibility is Supernatural Stamina and Undying Evil which would work well with both the heroic creatures and High Priest of Penance

I don't think Ashiok's Adept is that great. By the time it's online it won't do much in a lot of matchups.

I think Bloodcrazed Hoplite and Gifted Aetherborn are much, much better.

griffstick on Does the Heroic trigger work …

With Mirrorwing Dragon and or zada

Say for instance I have a Agent of the Fates, Ashiok's Adept, Setessan Oathsworn and Mirrorwing Dragon in play and I play Bounty of Might targeting Mirrorwing Dragon, that triggers Mirrorwing Dragon, you then copy the spell 3 times, and target your 3 heroic creatures 3 times. That alone is awesome but, I dont think that's a heroic trigger at all am I right?

If you're running lots of combat tricks, including a creature with heroic will be very effective. I recommend swapping Thornbow Archer out for Tormented Hero, Agent of the Fates, Ashiok's Adept, or Bloodcrazed Hoplite.

-Xiphos- on Dark Enchantments

Good point about Greater Auramancy. It's definitely a cool card, but since it's shroud rather than hexproof and 11 of my creatures are enchantments themselves.

Looking at my mana curve my max cmc is 3, which isn't too bad since I rely on enchanting creatures anyways.

After just a real quick search I found some nice creatures that may take the spot of Underworld Coinsmith or MAYBE even Blood-Cursed Knight. The only enchantments I have that actually grant lifelink now are Daybreak Coronet and Hopeful Eidolon. The eidolon is mostly there as a decent 1 drop that wouldn't be wasted whether sitting on the battlefield or used as an enchantment.

Agent of the Fates is really nice, but requires mana symbol bmana symbol b and has a cmc of 3Ashiok's Adept also looks nice for wiping an opponent's hand while I buff myself, but again, cmc of 3

Tormented Hero might actually have a spot in here being a 1 drop that fits the life draining theme I love so much. The only drawbacks are that he comes in tapped and my black mana is a little slower than my white as is right now.

I thank you all for the suggestions so far, combined minds can usually make a better deck than a single one. c:

Maybe take out Ashiok's Adept or Mutilate.
