Baleful Strix Discussion

ive-been-degaussed on Zur Enchantress Cycling

Some thoughts:

  • Baleful Strix is a pretty strict upgrade over Wall of Omens in this deck.

  • Sacred Excavation could be a good way to restock your hand with cyclers, although idk how much redundancy you need here.

  • Some other cyclers to consider: Expunge (kill spell), Scarab Feast (gy hate), Dirge of Dread (evasion for all your tokens or Zur)

I am having the exact same issue. For me it is saying that Command Tower, Thought Vessel, Illusionist's Gambit, Baleful Strix, and my commander Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge are all banned.

Stoneblade (more specifically deathblade) is my favorite deck in magic. I've been picking up pieces for it for awhile now, but I'm a college student and I've seen too many posts about people selling collections to pay bills that I don't want to invest in anything like duals or force of wills. I'm totally down for trading for them over a long period of time, but I don't want to buy them.

That said, I still want to participate in weekly LGS legacy tournaments if I can. I have no intentions of winning much, but I would like to take a few games a night. Oh yeah, and I'm super stubborn and insisting on playing a deck with Stoneforge Mystic and probably a blue deck at that, since I own Snapcaster Mage and fetches already. I can spend a little bit acquiring pieces to complete a list, but nothing like forces, duals, jace, and preferably not true-name namesis, though trading for one of those or a Karakas is a possibility, though unlikely.

Here's my current attempt at a decklist. Any advice for the deck would be much appreciated. The idea is Misdirection instead of Force of Will and a lot of awful fetching. I expect to fold to eldrazi and probably burn, but win vs death and taxes and give delver a run for their money. No jace makes beating BUG pretty tough, but not impossible.

Here are relevant cards I own: Show

Your curve is pretty high. You need more lands if your going to consistently hit over 6 mana. Izzet Signet / Dimir Signet / Rakdos Signet are strong adds here.

In addition I'd think about better ways to prolong the game or speed up your clock. Like Baleful Strix , Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer

Baleful Strix, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Cavern Harpy, Thalakos Seer all good creatures to have that are cheap to grab.

Rite of Replication targeting your commander you will deal 30 damage to each opponent.

I looked at your list and I came up with the following suggestions you might want to consider:

If you need more help on this deck or any other Commander project, then give me a headsup on my wall :) Just click my name and post something on there.

It is always great to recieve an upvote on my favourite deck, which you can see here. Just click the 'Upvote' button on the left if you like what you see.
