Batterskull Discussion

Thanks for the reply! :)

Loved the Stoneforge Mystic + Batterskull combo! Haha :)

That was somewhat my previous deck actually (I still have my full set of Inquisition, Cabal, Swords). And then I just reworked my available cards into this deck because I found the strategy interesting and refreshing. That's what I like about Legacy. :)

Truth, it doesn't immediately end the game. But once you reach that point of infinite life, unlike your opponent's deck, this one was designed to have an end strategy. It's just a matter of waiting for Vizkopa Guildmage, fetching the said card through Shred Memory, or also waiting for Unspeakable Symbol.

But yeah, I completely agree that your suggested deck is more competitive. :) That's why I'm looking for suggestions on this deck that can improve it and still somewhat holds true to its general form.

Instead of the combo that does't win the game, you could play more hand disruption and removal to just be a good beat down deck. try Inquisition of Kozilek Cabal Therapy, Swords to Plowshares and the Stoneforge Mystic + Batterskull combo.

Ishkana looks like it's probably not the best value you can get for 5 mana in modern, even if you are hitting delirium (that would probably be Batterskull which does help you hit delirium). also, I think Grisly Salvage is probably stronger than Grapple with the Past

ethanhembree1 on Casual Allies Budget Deck

I love Tazri as a commander! My only real suggestion is adding a couple more plansewalkers. In allies, the focus is these "white weenie" style creatures that have large synergy with the other creatures you're playing. Because of this, allies usually gets incremental card advantage just from the nature of the deck. However, since the synergy is slightly weaker that some of the combo-esque synergies that happen in commander these days, adding real card advantage in the form of planeswalkers like Elspeth, Knight-Errant in the maybeboard, other Gideons, Elspeth, Sun's Champion as a curve topper is useful, and that's probably more than enough replacement for the sub-par allies like Seascape Aerialist which is still just pretty awful even though it's an ally (just my opinion there lol). Another good idea is adding some of the commander staples that white offers. Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Austere Command, and Land Tax. Beyond that, adding an equipment sub-theme with Stoneforge Mystic, Stoneforge Acolyte, Stone Haven Outfitter, Batterskull, Umezawa's Jitte, etc. would give you another way to make your evasive guys bigger. Hope it helps!

Thoughts on Merciless Eviction and Batterskull? Both can be huge headaches for certain decks, but I don't know if they work well in your meta. Like the deck.

andrews1913 on Temmet's Big Beefy Tokens

Both Blade of Selves and Geist of Saint Traft both would trigger after Temmet making them both nonbos. Also, considering your commander wouldn't care in the least about mill, Sword of Body and Mind isn't worth it just allowing 1-2 commander hits and 1-2 bodies made for the 5 mana investment. Seeing this deck could use more draw, I may suggest Champion of Wits to replace one of those. it loots the first time, chumps, then turbo loots the second time around and becomes a decent beater. Should your wallet support it, you might also add a Batterskull as the token with it can be made unblockable by your commander and your deck has little in the way of lifegain, which should never be underestimated.

@shrapnel_: Man I wish they'd unban Goblin Recruiter...I miss Food Chain Goblins. It's not like it's stronger than other combo decks that already exist (Omnishow and Reanimator come to mind).

But yeah, this is a more mid-rangey Goblin variant that plays more like Death and Taxes. The weakness is that you don't get nearly as many hate cards or Stoneforge Mystic + Batterskull. The upside is that you have more "free" spells, tutoring, and card advantage.

I'm still missing 3x Rishadan Ports. I'm hoping the price comes down with Iconic Masters and I can pick some up.
