Beckon Apparition Discussion

As a quick start, you can remove: 2x Beckon Apparition, 1x Raise the Alarm, 1x Batwing Brume, and 1x Vampiric Rites, and 1x Souls of the Faultless, and Hide/Seek -- all of these seem "fun" but are definitely your weakest cards.

For these seven cards, you can increase the number of just about anything in your deck to begin with. I would firstly consider adding 1-2 more Lingering Souls as it's a really good card. If you want more life-gain to power up Ajani's Pridemate, you can use Soul Warden. You should probably increase Dismember to 2, and maybe Smother to 2 as well. You can consider cards like Inquisition of Kozilek, Zealous Persecution, Journey to Nowhere (or more Path to Exile if money is not an issue), and Murderous Cut.

As for creatures, some random suggestions are: Bloodsoaked Champion, Tidehollow Sculler, Archangel of Thune, Obzedat, Ghost Council (these two cards would require you to increase your land count to 22-23 though), Crypt Ghast, Basilica Screecher, Thrull Parasite (these last 3 are "weaker" cards, but have a lot of flavor), and yeah. I'm out of ideas at the moment.

If you have any questions, let me know!

Maybe sideboard Blood Artist for boardwipes, Midnight Haunting for instant speed combat tricks with Goldnight Commander, and Beckon Apparition/Tormod's Crypt for graveyard hate.

Yeah, I didn't know that Beckon Apparition existed, so thanks, I think it will hold a definite place in my sideboard against certain decks. For mainboard though, I feel like it would be a bit weak...


I think that Cloudform is good but I think it may be a bit to slow. Because it has hexproof, I will put it side board because game two they usually kill my tokens.

What about Beckon Apparition to make tokens while hating on graveyards?

I like the deck, maybe Beckon Apparition or Castigate instead of Tidehollow Sculler

Sorin-Based Budget B/W Tokens There's mine. Not technically modern yet, since some of the duel deck cards aren't modern legal, but I plan on replacing them with Erebos, God of the Dead. Also thinking of taking out my Gatekeeper of Malakir because tripple black is WAY too hard to get reliably.

I don't have Rest in Peace for sideboard, but only one guy at my local meta runs living end and there isn't really too much to hate on, but for spot graveyard removal, I like to have Beckon Apparition.

Korlus on BW budget Tokens, my version

The problem with Promise of Bunrei is that they are non-flying tokens that are colourless and not white - a relevant thing as most lists will run 6 anthem effects, and so also include Honor of the Pure.

Overall, I'd probably suggest investing in a solid sideboard. Beckon Apparition could fit into it if you have plenty of room left over (it fights decks like Assault Loam and Unburial Gifts well, but otherwise is sub-par vs. many graveyard strategies), but I'd generally suggest stronger cards, like Zealous Persecution #4, Path to Exile (or Condemn if budget is a big concern), Dismember #2-4, and maybe cards like Leyline of Sanctity, Stony Silence, Sin Collector, Relic of Progenitus, Auriok Champion, Aven Mindcensor, Rest in Peace, Rule of Law, Sundering Growth, Memoricide, Fulminator Mage, Grafdigger's Cage, Nevermore, Kataki, War's Wage, Timely Reinforcements etc.

Of course, the sideboard should be built based upon the local meta, but a selection of any of those cards ought to be fairly decent.

Wiktul on Is Progenitus good sideboard option ...

2 months ago

Yup, the Progenitus mechanics works exactly as kyuuri117 is saying. That is why I asked about him in that matter. Thank you all guys for your strong response, but the thread is not about IF MILL DECK IS REALLY ANY CHALLENGE TO SUCH A NOOB AS MYSELF (as first posts could suggest), but about pure theory.

Eldrazis are exiled with Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void - simple as that. For all who still have any doubts about that, Emrakul, Ulamog and Kozilek ARE falling into a graveyard and only then their shuffling effect can trigger. They can be also ressurected from that graveyard (with Goryo's Vengeance or Shallow Grave) as well as exiled with any other effect, like Beckon Apparition and so on. Porgenitus, in terms of mechanics, never hits the graverd, nor it even tries to do that. Elixir of Immortality seems nice as long as you have it on the table. Sideboarding it x1 or x2 against mill is pure lottery and I can bet that it will be milled as well as any other cards from your deck. Against mill, drawing it is a lottery and in lottery mill have much more options of achieving it's goal then I.

Getting back to my first assumption - 7 cards in hand - Progenitus as 8th draw means that mill can never kill me. Or... It doesn't? That is exactly what I'm curious about, not if the mill decks are competitive in modern.
