Batterskull Discussion

Spazik008 on Abzan Midrange, No Gimmicks

That's certainly something to consider. The Deed also hits my own equipment from Stoneforge Mystic unless it's a Batterskull, which is why I'm hesitant to maindeck it. Pernicious Deed works a lot better in decks that are trying to ramp into Thragtusk and such. Card selection in a midrange deck like this can get a little tricky because of the balance between synergy and power. Obviously slamming Deed would be an argument in favor of "power", but then the question is whether it's worth the cost in synergy. Same with Toxic Deluge, but with Empty the Warrens so big right now I feel like a sweeper maindeck is relevant. Definitely something for me to think about though.

The mana is a little weird, but it works. I do it more often in Modern, but I'm not scared to throw down a filterland or even a check or fastland if it fits. Being able to cast Hymn to Tourach off a turn 1 Horizon Canopy or Dryad Arbor can be a big surprise too, and they often aren't expecting the hymn when they see the non-black source turn 1.

Thanks for the feedback NV_1980... I highly disagree with your evaluation of a few cards though ...Bygone Bishop (card draw is one thing white severely lacks), Palace Jailer (kind of the same reason) and Council's Judgment as an overall removal spell is nuts in a 1v1 situation and hits the targets you wish to hit in a multiplayer setting most of the time while not targeting and therefore ignoring the likes of shroud/protection...

I have to agree on: Student of Warfare most likely does not offer all that much and is rather slow while Ranger of Eos and Taj-Nar Swordsmith are both quite mana inefficient... Mirran Crusader is nothing but an equippable aggro drop..

I would 100% definitely run Containment Priest as well as Batterskull if these cards were not quite expensive on mtgo.
