Basilica Bell-Haunt Discussion

Latetheman on B/W Midrange from Casual to ...

Hello guys! I've played MtG now for a while casually and mostly with my friends and a few time at my local card store in official Mtg event. I was able to win a few rounds but of course lost all the games (BO3). Winning those few rounds gave me massive motivation boost to became a better Mtg player, now i am writing this thread to ask help from more experienced players:

I am using following list: Creatures: 4x Ajani's Pridemate 4x Basilica Bell-Haunt 4x Bloodthirsty Aerialist 2x Doom Whisperer 3x Murderous Rider 4x Vampire of the Dire Moon

Instant: 2x Mortify

Land: 6x Plains 6x Swamp 1x Castle Ardenvale 1x Castle Locthwain 4x Scoured Barrens 4x Temple of Silence

Sorcery: 1x Kaya's Wrath

Enchantment: 2x Dawn of Hope 4x Dreadhorde Invasion 3x Oath of Kaya

Planeswalker: 1x Ajani, Strength of the Pride 1x Kaya, Orzhov Usurper 3x Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord

I would love to get some improvement ideas and cards for my main deck. I am ready to invest some money (but not too much since i am a poor student).

Also at the moment i don't have any sideboard, I am not sure how I should created it vs my main deck. I have been thinking maybe Prison Realm or Finale of Glory but i don't know what to cut.

All the help is greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much!

ps. Please be kind this is my first post. :)

Digger63, let me tell you what my plans are for the matchups you described:

  1. Golos/Field of The Dead. In the current meta, very few cards deal with Field of the Dead . Because of that, I did the best I could. Sorcerous Spyglass shuts down Golos, and Ritual of Soot kills the zombie tokens. They will eventually outgrind me, but by then I should hopefully get one of my 4 Fae of Wishes to fetch either Liliana, Dreadhorde General or Garruk, Cursed Huntsman for the late game, or Ashiok, Dream Render to shut off their early-game ramp.

  2. Teferi/Esper Control. For the control deck, I rely on Chandra, Awakened Inferno and Midnight Clock .Chandra’s emblem can close out a game, and Midnight Clock can recur her if she dies. In addition, Stonecoil Serpent is a very potent game finisher if it sticks, as the best cards in Esper Basilica Bell-Haunt , Mortify , etc, can’t deal with or block it.

Aggro. For Aggro, the game plan is to get the ritual’s of Soot, and then collect some sb tech to finish the game like Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Chandra, Awakened Inferno , or even Garruk, Cursed Huntsman .

Hi there, love the deck so far. Just wondering one thing, how effective is Basilica Bell-Haunt for you. If you're finding success keep it in. But if it maybe could be filled with something better, may I suggest Teysa Karlov ? The Tokens buff doesn't matter that much, but what I'm looking at is the second ability. I feel you could start soaring after turn 4. It slots right into Basilica Bell-Haunt 's spot at the 4 drop too and is a little easier to cast. Everything else seems fun :)

No, I just went back through my maybe list, and Basilica Bell-Haunt might be more replaceable than I thought.

Demarge Thanks for the thoughts! Several of those cards were on my radar; I'll have to take a closer look at them.

I've been liking the interaction of Vicious Rumors and Drill Bit . Outside of that, though, Drill Bit hasn't really been doing much. I'll try the Oath.

Basilica Bell-Haunt is the only nonlegendary creature bigger than 1/1 I'm looking at right now, so I don't want to cut them completely.

The very first draft of this deck was based around Disinformation Campaign and Doom Whisperer . Since then, Campaign has been in and out, based on how much surveil I'm using.

The sideboard has been a problem, but I think I've been looking for the wrong answers. Mortify and Lazotep Plating are good choices.

Have you playtested this? I really like the different direction this is over other Esper control, such as the value from Basilica Bell-Haunt and Azor, the Lawbringer .

I want to fit in 2x Hostage Taker into my esper here deck, Esper Hero. RIght now the way the maindeck and sideboard is constructed, I have pretty good matchups against aggro decks and control. I have enough incidental lifegain and removal that I can get past the early game in aggro matchups and they run out of gas and I take over in the late game. I've had success against red based aggro, mono white, and other hero decks with this. In control matchups, between Duress , Thought Erasure , Basilica Bell-Haunt , and Disinformation Campaign I have enough hand disruption/discard that they can't' take full advantage of all their card advantage and it really evens the playing field. I've had success against esper control, jeskai control, and bant nexus because of this. My tough matchup is against sultai. I usually do well in the early game against them, but between their removal and the card advantage they get from Krasis and Find they can out grind me. I think Hostage Taker can help in those matchups. Whether it's taking a krasis or and explore creature I can gain a little bit of card advantage myself which would be great in the late game. I just don't know where to fit it in. I can see it being a liability in some matchups, so I was figuring it's more of a sideboard option in my deck. But honestly I don't know what to cut from the sideboard. There isn't anything I don't use regularly out of the sideboard at FNM. I know I can't be 100% prepared for literally every matchup, but I can see this coming in for more than just the sultai matchup, I just think it'll help the most there. Any suggestions as to where I can make the change, even if you think it's the mainboard. Maybe hearing others thoughts and opinions will help me decide what's best. Thanks!
