Blinding Souleater Discussion

Daarkest on Sandstorm: A New Tier 1 Possibility

Minhokaa Blinding Souleater most certainly does open up an attack, but I had the Trespassing Souleater because he doesn't have to tap, and therefore you can put as much life as you want into it. The more life you lose, the more you get back with each iteration of Children of Korlis

Phyrexian Delver I thought this guy had art that looked like it could be an Eldrazi of Ulamogs brood. (lots of weird bony plates covering it with a soft fleshy membrane underneath). Phyrexian Metamorph looks kind of like Emrakuls brood and Blinding Souleater is like one from Kozileks brood.

Caerwyn on Need suggestions on cards

To clarify a bit Artifacts also follow the rules of colour identity. Godsend or Blinding Souleater would be legal with your commander--the former has a White color identity as a component of its mana cost, and the latter as a component of its activated ability. Contrarily Courier's Capsule and Evolution Vat would not be legal, as they do not have White colour identities.

I run Sigil of the Empty Throne in a deck that is 43% enchantments--it has been a powerful finisher in that deck, but the deck's construction is absurdly skewed toward enchantments. I am not sure it would work well in most other decks, but wanted to mention it as you wanted an angelic theme.

Paradox Engine + Isochron Scepter allows for some infinite combos if you are running a large number of mana rocks. You can use it for casting Holy Day on each opponents' turn in the early game, and eventually use to pump out infinite mana, for cards such as Entreat the Angels (which fits the angel host theme you said you wanted).

Some other cards to consider:

  • Mesa Enchantress - card advantage
  • Lightmine Field - strong pillowfort card, particularly against wide decks. However, if your win condition involves attacking with lots of creatures, you might want to forgo this one.
  • Darksteel Mutation - removes an enemy commander without giving the opponent an option to return the target to the command zone.
  • Consulate Crackdown - remove their mana rocks, and any remaining threat your opponents might be.

Now this is my kind of deck!

A couple suggestions...
Pestilent Souleater does pretty much the same thing as your commander, as in let you drain your own life. It costs the same (but for no devotion), doesn't bounce itself after 1 use, and opens up a few artifact recursion options if people don't want it on the field. (there are other souleater cards from New Phyrexia that act similarly, but the white one, Blinding Souleater, isn't good. The red one, Immolating Souleater, however...)
Also, Axis of Mortality should definitely find its way in here.

The Landfall ability indeed triggers along Kalametra's.

Some cards I would switch out include:

Abzan Kin-Guard 4 mana 3/3 lifelink is quite weak.

Aetherwind Basker Has no synergy with the deck.

Ajani's Comrade In my opinion Scavenging Ooze would be much stronger in terms of utility and reliability

Argothian Elder Land untap is useful if you're using many utility lands, which you are not. Could be replaced by any mana dorks like Elvish Mystic or Avacyn's Pilgrim

Aven Mindcensor This guy should stay if your playgroup is playing combo-heavy decks, otherwise he's useless

Blinding Souleater Little synergy with the deck

Salt Road Patrol Lacks utility

An-Havva Inn and Ancestral Tribute Very defensive cards, but Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or evenPelakka Wurm would benefit the deck more.

Angelic Blessing It looks rather weak compared to Collective Blessing orCathars' Crusade

Aether Vial A pricy card mostly used in tempo decks like Merfolks. Not very useful here since we should have plenty of ramp anyway.

Accorder's Shield Less synergy than say, Sword of the Animist

Chimeric Staff Looks like a weaker Chameleon Colossus to me.

Arboria Kinda goes against Karametra as a whole since you WANT to play creatures to pump out lands.

Absolute Grace+Absolute Law I mean, if you're only facing red and black, this should stay. Otherwise, it's an even deader draw than Great Wall.

Abzan Runemark Weaker than Rancor or many other boosting enchantments.

There might still be a few cards I find odd or out of place, but for now I'm slightly running out of time, so I'll proceed with some general must-have cards:

Sol Ring, Selesnya Signet, Command Tower, Oblivion Ring, Chord of Calling, Solemn Simulacrum, Tireless Tracker, Sun Titan, Eternal Witness.

Also wow Living Plane if you own one it's great, though if not it's quite the pricey card.

I can give you an extensive list of potentially great cards if you want me to, though tonight this is all the time I had, my apologies.

Hmm, that's tough. I see that you're playing off the madness trick with Stern Constable, but I wonder if something like Blinding Souleater or Gideon's Lawkeeper would be sufficient, letting you trade out one or two of Just the Wind for Gossamer Chains... maybe not.

Separately, what had you choose Frozen Solid over something like Singing Bell Strike or Pacifism (or even Cage of Hands)?

booradleypwns on Foam padded clerics

2 years ago

If you're going deep on Clerics, here are some of your payoff cards: Vile Deacon, Shieldmage Elder, Rotlung Reanimator, Akroma's Devoted, Battlefield Medic, Celestial Gatekeeper. It feels like all of those provide more value to doing cleric things.

Otherwise Felidar Sovereign seems like a great addition to the deck in terms of the lifegain synergy. Blazing Archon is really synergistic with the fort strategy, but isn't a cleric. Meekstone can also be pretty effective in the pillowfort plan. Ensnaring Bridge is also pretty good at that but might be a little pricey. Add something like Juntu Stakes or Reverence to build your own Blazing Archon. Also consider some additional interaction with opponents' permanents, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Revoke Existence, Dawn to Dusk.

Potential cuts:

Ghostway - I guess I just don't see enough ETB effects to support the inclusion of this card.

Holy Day - I don't know if Fog does enough for you to support taking up a whole card slot.

Intervention Pact - I suppose this could have some corner uses, but I think you can do enough of this effect with your clerics that this might not be necessary.

Celestial Convergence - Cool card but without a way to cheat the counters off, I feel like it would cause too much trouble politically. 7 turns is a long time to make sure you're at the highest life total.

Story Circle - Seems like there are too many possible colors that people could have that could mess you up. Also doesn't do anything against colorless creatures.

Norn's Annex - Pretty bad against white decks, could be effective against others.

Blinding Souleater - Can only lock down one creature at a time, not a big enough body to make it worth it in EDH.

Banisher Priest - Makes boardwipes feel bad when everyone loses their stuff and your opponent gets back their fatty that you were trying to save everyone from.

Devout Chaplain - You have 14 humans currently... it's not impossible that you'll have 3 of them on the battlefield at one time, but if you don't then this is just a Gray Ogre

Inquisitor Exarch - Doesn't feel like you get enough value out of this for it to be a whole card in your deck.

Harsh Mercy - Potentially ineffective against 1 or more decks... for example if someone in the group is playing a zombie deck, then they just laugh when you cast this.

Cool deck idea. I probably wouldn't have picked out clerics as a good / powerful strategy, but this looks like a really good deck.
