Aven Mindcensor Discussion

angelusmortis on Kaalia, the pretty wide I guess

1 day ago

I agree with Winterblast. I like an aggro Kaalia deck as much as the next guy but Kaalia is much more of a control deck over a pure aggro. I suggest that you add in a few control cards like Aven Mindcensor, Ethersworn Canonist, and both Thalia, Guardian of Thraben & Thalia, Heretic Cathar

The Landfall ability indeed triggers along Kalametra's.

Some cards I would switch out include:

Abzan Kin-Guard 4 mana 3/3 lifelink is quite weak.

Aetherwind Basker Has no synergy with the deck.

Ajani's Comrade In my opinion Scavenging Ooze would be much stronger in terms of utility and reliability

Argothian Elder Land untap is useful if you're using many utility lands, which you are not. Could be replaced by any mana dorks like Elvish Mystic or Avacyn's Pilgrim

Aven Mindcensor This guy should stay if your playgroup is playing combo-heavy decks, otherwise he's useless

Blinding Souleater Little synergy with the deck

Salt Road Patrol Lacks utility

An-Havva Inn and Ancestral Tribute Very defensive cards, but Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or evenPelakka Wurm would benefit the deck more.

Angelic Blessing It looks rather weak compared to Collective Blessing orCathars' Crusade

Aether Vial A pricy card mostly used in tempo decks like Merfolks. Not very useful here since we should have plenty of ramp anyway.

Accorder's Shield Less synergy than say, Sword of the Animist

Chimeric Staff Looks like a weaker Chameleon Colossus to me.

Arboria Kinda goes against Karametra as a whole since you WANT to play creatures to pump out lands.

Absolute Grace+Absolute Law I mean, if you're only facing red and black, this should stay. Otherwise, it's an even deader draw than Great Wall.

Abzan Runemark Weaker than Rancor or many other boosting enchantments.

There might still be a few cards I find odd or out of place, but for now I'm slightly running out of time, so I'll proceed with some general must-have cards:

Sol Ring, Selesnya Signet, Command Tower, Oblivion Ring, Chord of Calling, Solemn Simulacrum, Tireless Tracker, Sun Titan, Eternal Witness.

Also wow Living Plane if you own one it's great, though if not it's quite the pricey card.

I can give you an extensive list of potentially great cards if you want me to, though tonight this is all the time I had, my apologies.

Thanks, man: people don't tend to think of voltron decks as being competitive, so that's why a labeled it as a casual deck.

The main reason I like Holy Mantle is because it offers evasion, and I feel like that's arguably the most important type of enchantment, but if I replace it with Stranglehold that brings me down to 18 auras, which is a little scary, and if I remove Snake Umbra, that leaves me with just 17 auras, compared to the 19 that you have. You sure that's not too low? Also, by adding Stranglehold, should I just scrap Aven Mindcensor?

At the very least I need Replenish, but I don't mind getting rid of Retether and replacing it with Regrowth. Board wipes aren't so bad during the early goings, but I tend to get focused because of how powerful Uril, The Mistalker gets in such a short period of time.

I don't mind exchanging Grasp of Fate with Cast Out because it does more for less, but I love Cast Out's instant speed.

I don't have copies of Grove of the Burnwillows or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, but I have City of Brass, Mana Confluence and Horizon Canopy. The additional fetch lands are cool, but given how few basics I would have and the fact that I'd be limited to fetching only one type of basic is a concern.

I'm completely at ease with most of your suggestions: my only worries are decreasing the total number of auras in my deck and acquiring those off-color fetch lands, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Aven Mindcensor only affects your opponents FYI :)

Flagellum Thanks. Leonin Arbiter is going in as soon a I can find him. I am running tutor effects though, so it doesn't look like Aven Mindcensor will make the cut. Price of Glory is just hilarious.

theindigoeffect on Uril's Revenge

Assuming my total number of disruption cards is seven, I was thinking that those slots would be filled by Gaddock Teeg, Grand Abolisher, Blind Obedience Aven Mindcensor, Armageddon, Red Elemental Blast and Constant Mists.

I was thinking of including an extra land destruction spell or counterspell, but I figured that diversification might be important, given the limited number of slots available: that's why I just selected one counterspell. Constant Mists Would definitely be an asset in my deck.

My removal would consist of Winds of Rath, Beast Within, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Grasp of Fate, Chaos Warp and Hull Breach.

What do you think? That's assuming I adhere to 14 slots.

I guess another way of looking at it is that these are my 14 survival cards, and I tried to categorize them as best I could, albeit loosely. lol
