Beckon Apparition Discussion

Eidolon of Rhetoric could provide even more control of the field if you plan to use Call to the Kindred as your main way to cast creatures.

Angel of Condemnation Could make a very nice control creature that you can use on the enemies turn. It gives your multiple Exiles for a single card draw, as well as allowing you to flicker creatures if you don't have Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

In a black/white discard spirit deck I used Angel of Flight Alabaster and other effects to return cards from the graveyard. Not Forgotten could be a way to bring back important creatures like Kira, Great Glass-Spinner or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit while also creating a 1/1.

Doomed Traveler, Spiritual Visit, and Beckon Apparition could be used for a couple 1/1 spirits for 1 cost, as your deck is 3+ drop heavy, you may get stalled out early game and end up without a single creature for 3 or 4 turns.

Malchi, none of those cards are terribly expensive, but if you want budget cards that have similar effects, try Ajani's Presence, Raise the Alarm, Day of Judgment, Gather the Townsfolk, Spirit Bonds, Timely Reinforcements, and Beckon Apparition are a few I can think of.

Souls of the Faultless just isn't that great of a card for a win strategy, it can't attack, cost 3 mana, doesn't affect the board when played, and can be mostly ignored by your opponent.

In short, yes I would generally consider taking out Disfigure. Something to consider is that Beckon Apparition is largely good because of its synergy with Nightsky Mimic, so if you take that out, then maybe taking out Beckon Apparition would be better there. Mana Tithe is an interesting card, and I used to run 1 in my SB, but I'm not convinced yet of its value outside of an attrition-style control deck which might be a good transformative sideboard option.

Glad you've been enjoying the deck! Thanks for the input, and keep tinkering with it to find out what you enjoy and what works!

Great question! I would certainly bring in hand disruption. I would also consider changing out some small, quick removal for more substantial, longer game removal. And I would consider bringing in a bomb that is harder to deal with but higher on the curve. Maybe it would look something like this:


-4 Disfigure - Control has less small creatures

-4 Nightsky Mimic - This creature is for going aggressive over the top in the early mid-game and requires momentum which we won't assume to have.


+2 Chainer's Edict - 4 hard removal spells in two cards; great for long games

+3 Duress - Bread and butter against control

+1 Guardian of the Guildpact - Hard to deal with other than an edict effect

+2 Ostracize - Depends on the quantity of their creatures

This is very general though.. I am more likely to take out Beckon Apparition against a deck that doesn't use their graveyard much, and there are plenty of other similar considerations. Sometimes bringing in a Disenchant would be the right move.

Bojuka Bog isn't instant speed, but it is land that doubles as graveyard hate. Though with Blood Moon being a staple on modern.. Probably not the best. Crypt Incursion, Crook of Condemnation, Beckon Apparition, and Cremate. But that is all I can think of at the moment.

I would play at least 21 lands being three color. I also don't like Transgress the Mind and would personally play Duress if Thoughtseize is out of budget.

Love the idea though. I suggest looking at WB Aristocrats deck for some inspiration. Not sure if 2 Negate, 4 Serum Visions have a home here and I am quite confused by Beckon Apparition. Instead maybe Fatal Push and more creatures?

Sorry that post was all over the place.Happy brewing!
