Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Discussion

OOMJasonDavis on The Terrorist (Mardu Hijack) Budget

8 hours ago

Love the deck but I feel you can cut Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim for better creatures/mana or more removal or some burn? Just some thoughts.

I just think the deck could use some form of repeatable sac outlet to keep recurring with Alesha. Maybe even Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim?

damik005 on sacrificed creature's toughness added by ...

17 hours ago

I was wandering if i have a creature with something like Slagwurm Armor or Siegecraft and use something like Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim's 1st ability, Korozda Guildmage's 2nd ability or Momentous Fall.
Is the toughness considered with the equip/aura?

TearsInRain23 on For All Those Who Died -EDH-

@Daedalus19876: SO far this deck has a 14 game winning streak with no losses at my lgs both 1v1 and 4 player.

Removed Always Watching (replaced with Norn's Annex, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim (the sacrifice wasn't utilized to full effect in this deck. Replaced with Weathered Wayfarer for utility.), Batterskull (too slow here. Replaced with Shambling Vent), Kokusho, the Evening Star (Will find better use in my tbb Meren deck, replaced with Luminarch Ascension because angels.), Well of Lost Dreams (too much mana sink for lifegain that was garnered through combat damage more than anything else. Replaced with Painful Quandary), Death Grasp (Useless after the first game I used it, replaced with Selfless Spirit), Necropotence (The drawing at the end of my turn was hurting my games and almost cost me one so it had to go. Replaced with Karn Liberated because just because), Boon Reflection (did little. Replaced with Aven Mindcensor for control), and Oblivion Ring (Slow removal. Replaced with Unmake).

Other cards I have considered are Nirkana Revenant, Bloodchief Ascension, Ghostly Prison, and the two angels that meld into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares.

Opifex on Stacking ETB with Panharmonicon

2 days ago

I have Panharmonicon on the battlefield, an Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and a Fiend Hunter with Ashen Rider, and Karmic Guide on his LTB return from exile. If I sacrifice Fiend Hunter can I sacrifice Ashen Rider in time to return them both with Karmic Guide and rinse repeat?

multimedia on Abzan Revolt

Zaueski, Selfless Spirit is a amazing revolt enabler because Renegade Rallier can recur it. Being an enabler while at the same time protecting your army from combat or removal seems very good. The only problem is it's 1 toughness which Walking Ballista can feast on, but you can sac it in response to Ballista.

Speaking of Ballista it too can be a fine revolt enabler while at the same time giving you a card that can stop the Saheeli Combo that's not narrow like Authority of the Consuls or bad card disadvantage like Lost Legacy. Liliana, the Last Hope can get back Ballista from the graveyard which seems good.

Another card I recommend is Tireless Tracker. Tracker can do two things give you some draw and be a revolt enabler. When you sac a clue to draw this triggers revolt since the clue is permanent before it's sacrificed.

Eldrazi Displacer could let you reuse Rallier which seems powerful to out value your opponent and great in grinder/board stall matchups. 1-2x Displacer and 4x Aether Hub might work. You're already using an energy theme so Hub will also help to fix mana colors.

Another interesting option is Eldritch Evolution. Spell Queller is not seeing much play right now. It would let you sac a creature to tutor for Rallier. You could also sac any Servo token to get any 2 drop such as Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. Evolution could work main deck, but I think it would be a fine sideboard card to bring in matchups where you don't expect to see Queller.

I don't know what you're maximum budget is, but my suggestions would add much more cost to this deck. In summary these are the changes to consider I would start with:
Main Deck

Good luck with your deck.

clayperce on BW Odric, Dwarf lover

Here are a few thoughts. Please take them with healthy skepticism though, as I VERY rarely play BW!

First, I think your mana curve looks really awkward. That many 3-drops means the deck is going to be really slow, and that's kind of a recipe for getting crushed in the current super-fast meta. I think you either need to add a TON more control (so you can survive long enough to cast and then swing with a couple Dwarves, plus Ordic), or a TON more one- and two-drops (do you can have a bunch of dudes on the field and then make them super-powered when Odric finally gets there).

I know you love the Dwarves, and the Control route is probably the best way to keep them all, but that's going to be very expensive, as you'd probably want to add 3x Fatal Push and 4x Grasp of Darkness just for starters.

So maybe look at adding some inexpensive one-and two-drops with useful keywords? I'd also recommend and empasis on Deathtouch, as it seems to be especially powerful in a world of HUGE BG Creatures. And with this kind of scheme I'd seriously aim for at least 24 Creatures, and maybe as high as 28.

Some cards to consider ...

Good luck (and good skill) on the build!

DevilNight72 on W/B control

5 days ago

Mardu vehicles is a 50/50 match up with this deck because of all the hand/field removal and if it gets a bit too fast that's when my sideboard comes in. The reason Anguished Unmaking has so many copies in MB is because I have no idea what I'm playing and I personally want to be able to respond to anything and the life link helps counteract it. I am very heavily debating putting Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and Blessed Alliance into the deck. If you would like you could deck share with me and we could work together to make a even stronger BW control/agro which I think could be interesting. And I do enjoy having others opinion so I can get all perspectives.
