Authority of the Consuls Discussion

Tunman on Cursed | Amonkhet

Hey, good job on the brew, it definitely has potential! As you are taking the ally path may I suggest: Kalastria Healer and Zulaport Cutthroat as they are very easy to cast. You can also run a perma sac outlet like Dread Wanderer. Other cards I would consider are Authority of the Consuls as the tax and lifegain effects are interesting, Approach of the Second Sun and Ob Nixilis Reignited.

Instead of Authority of the Consuls you could put in Trespasser's Curse which stops the copycat combo and does what Authority of the Consuls wanted to do.

Yeah Authority of the Consuls is a must have for sideboard against Saheeli cat combo

Delta-117 on Atraxa - Ohhhh, you wanted to play Magic...

Okay here are my promised suggestions.

Take out Winter Orb for Winding Constrictor, Trophy Mage for Master Biomancer, Tangle Wire for Eternal Witness, remove Sun Titan for a Ajani Unyielding, Supreme Verdict for I believe As Foretold even though not covered in your list if you can acquire one of these I recommend it, otherwise add maybe Vorel of the Hull Clade.

Beyond this, swap Stasis for Hardened Scales, Shred Memory for Scavenging Ooze, Perplex for Thrummingbird, Peacekeeper for either Authority of the Consulate (Will explain why soon) or Corpsejack Menace if not, Narset Transcendent for Glen Elendra Archmage, Muddle the Mixture for Abzan Charm, Luminarch Ascension for Aura Shards, Kiora, Master of the Depths for Forgotten Ancient, Idyllic Tutor for Collective Effort, Humility for I think Archangel of Thune if you have or can get one easily the card works well when you have of course your commander and Authority of the Consuls if you choose to run that, or just Rishkar's Expertise, Fabricate for Crystalline Crawler, Aura of Silence for Prime Speaker Zegana.

You could always add in some hydras to this like Primordial Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, and Lifeblood Hydra. Some other considerations are Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel which I recommend one or more (I use both) so you don't ever have to worry about discard when you play Prime Speaker Zegana or Rishkar's Expertise. I also think you should try and add Inspiring Call which further supports having something for unlimited handsize. Oath of Ajani, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Abzan Falconer, and Chasm Skulker(good if you include all of that card draw) are a few other ideas.

When I can again I will try and help you find a place for Viral Drake and any others I missed/suggested additionally.

You make a good point. The only reason I use Authority of the Consuls is to prevent the Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian combo and/or slow down token decks. That combo was a common recurrence when I considered making this deck a few weeks ago. But I'll try it. Thank you, anything else?

Some suggestions for making the deck more aggressive. Unless playing against a haste deck or multiplayer game, I'm not seeing much benefit to Authority of the Consuls, instead I'd swap that with Larger Than Life you pop that onto the Electrostatic Pummeler before triggering it you'll get a 10/10 trampler, trigger that twice and it's now a 20/20 trampler. Same could be done with the Crackdown Construct if that gets triggered 2 or 3 times it can also benefit. Another card I'm contemplating is Fabrication Module, with all the energy being created you'll end up adding +1/+1 counters 3-4 times a turn. That might not work directly with Panharmonicon but the other triggered abilities would create the energy counters. Add that with 2x Felidar Guardians and you've got infinite +1/+1s.

MrKrabs on Karlov exiles you from his land

I think Authority of the Consuls is just absolutely better than Suture Priest, since Priest requires you to devote your own resources to get triggers rather than just leveraging your opponents'.

I feel like the once-a-turn triggers are just a bit too slow, in practice, and would recommend something like Auriok Champion over Nyx-Fleece Ram.

Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Elspeth, Knight-Errant are both great at getting Karlov in for damage. Ajani can make Karlov deadly out of nowhere. Shizo, Death's Storehouse is another excellent card in that regard.

I have a more weenie-focused version of this deck if you're interested: Mr Bones Wild Ride. It focuses more on grinding incremental value creatures that on their own aren't huge threats, so your opponents don't have any satisfying removal targets. You get to build up these value engines and just pull ahead of everyone else while they're playing big threats and having them removed.
