Blessed Alliance Discussion

Madhava on "I've run out of die!" (G/W/ Renown)

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is kind of good here. I'd consider running one or two of her.

Okay... cut Kytheon's Irregulars x2 & Abzan Battle Priest x1 for Collected Company x3.

Cut your 6 current sorceries/instants + 4 lands for Hardened Scales x4, Dromoka's Command x3, Blessed Alliance x2 or x3, Gavony Township x1. This shouldn't need to run more than 20 lands. Also, change out some basic lands for Sunpetal Groves (if you're on a budget), or Windswept Heaths if you have 'em.

That's not a bad plan! Secure the Wastes is another win condition that Esper control decks run too!

The life cost of Anguished Unmaking is quite prohibitive, but its flexibility outweighs it, as it can take on anything (except land) that your opponent throws out. Also, never run more than 2.

Consider Nyx-Fleece Ram, Collective Brutality, and Blessed Alliance for your sideboard against more aggressive opponents

@rothgar13, TheAnnihilator,

Since I now mainboard one copy of Blessed Alliance, could the BA in the sideboard become a Celestial Purge or a third Leyline of Sanctity? I'm leaning toward the Leyline because of how bad our Burn MU is.

hi there!

I play Esper Spirits too, check it out: Esper Spirits.

My thoughts are:

  • Phantasmal Image does a really good work here.
  • Zealous Persecution is an interesting addition too.
  • Lingering Souls is the reason for being esper, not UW, so is a 4-of mandatory.
  • How good is Remand being for you? I don't know, I had counterspells in my first version too, but it felt a little out of place. I'm really enjoying Blessed Alliance still.
  • Your sideboard is awesome.

Anyhow, +1! I loved your list.

Kjartan on USA control, needs help

3 Keranos is definately overdoing it.

And if you want Nahiri, you might want an Emrakul, though she is good enough on her own.

Less creatures in general would be a good idea I think.

But 4 of them should probably be Snapcaster.

Also consider Ancestral Vision and Blessed Alliance

For the mana base, Flooded Strand is legal now and should probably replace your Arid Mesas and 1 of your other lands.

Also, Ghost Quarter should probably replace Desolate Lighthouse as your Colorless/utility land of choice.

For the sideboard.

some good includes are Stony Silence, Rest in Peace, Anger of the Gods, Negate, Dispel, Supreme Verdict, Engineered Explosives, Deflecting Palm, Detention Sphere, and Wear / Tear

Here's my UWR deck if you have any interest:

How does your sideboard look? If you haven't made one, i suggest a couple of Immolating Glares and Blessed Alliances, very good against aggro

If expensive cards are out of your price range, I'm thinking Azorius has the best chance.

You've got White for Removal and Boardwipes with stuff like Stasis Snare/Cast Out, and Fumigate. I'd recommend Blessed Alliance as well to slow down decks that rely on 1-2 big creatures.

Blue ends up being your card draw and counter engine, with Glimmer of Genius, Disallow/Void Shatter. It likely gives you your win-con in Sphinx of the Final Word as well.

Going to be tough certainly, but I think it's your best choice.

JamesKBoots on R/W Humans

I think R/W is going to be an awesome deck going forward so you can't go wrong getting into it early. With that said I would be tempted to do 4 Always Watching also what about Gust Walker. Otherwise you have a lot of creatures and while it is a aggressive deck with R/W having such great control cards like Blessed Alliance,Cast Out,Magma Spray. Seems like you might need some spot removal to go along with your creatures.
