multimedia on I don't have money for Lyra lol GW

Hey, I can totally understand not having Lyra because her price is ridiculous right now. Consider playing more Shalai and Danitha and building your deck around them? Shalai is no Lyra, but she's a very good budget alternative. With more Shalai and Danitha you can take more advantage Urza's Ruinous Blast.

Shalai gives all your creatures hexproof this is exactly what you want if playing auras because a creature you try to enchant with an aura is protected from removal. Your opponent can't response to killing the creature who you are enchanting because the creature has hexproof, it can't be targeted by opponent. The aura can be targeted and destroyed by opponent, but not the creature.

On Serra's Wings is a good budget aura to play with Danitha as she makes it a three drop aura. It's legendary works with Blast. You can build your own Lyra with it :) Putting Wings on Shalai makes her very close to Lyra, best of all it gives her lifelink which is a reason that Lyra is such a good card.

Enchanting Shalai with Wings however is risky. It must be done when your opponent is tapped out or doesn't have any cards in hand. Shalai herself doesn't have hexproof she can be targeted and killed in response to being enchanted by Wings.

Shanna, Sisay's Legacy seems like a very good two drop for a strategy with Danitha, Shalai, Wings and Blast. Shanna has semi hexproof from your opponent's targeted abilities. With Shalai she gets full hexproof. Shanna can get big which is good, but she doesn't have evasion such as flying or trample, which is a drawback. If you can give her evasion then she becomes much better.

A few good support cards for this possible strategy can be Tragic Poet and Board the Weatherlight. Poet is backup to get back a destroyed enchantment such as Wings or Seal. Board lets you look at the top five cards of your library and can put any one legendary card into your hand. It can find everything for this possible strategy: Danitha, Shalai, Wings and Blast.

Consider this:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 3x Poet
  • 3x Shanna
  • 4x Danitha
  • 3x Rishkar
  • 4x Shalai

  • 4x Rest or Seal Away
  • 3x Wings
  • 2x Blackblade

  • 3x Blast
  • 4x Board

  • 4x Expanse
  • 4x Evolving Wilds or Sunpetal Grove
  • 8x Forest
  • 8x Plains

Good luck with your deck.

i would recommend Board the Weatherlight it can help dig to find your goblin charbelcher and any other artifacts or legendaries you throw in there if you do. Idyllic Tutor would be good for getting endless horizons, although its pretty pricey these days.

Hey stensiagamekeeper,

I totally get what you mean by saying those additions aren't on-flavor in the deck, hence why I'm really hesitant about splashing sort of any color into the deck as of now. The enchantments, however, are a persistent problem this deck runs in to, as well as creatures that are out of range of the go-to red burn/removal. I however do agree on the double green being sort of wonky in this current shell, although the treasures should alleviate pressure like that.

Your names suggestions in white actually seem really good. I like the idea of using Ixalan's Binding to stop entire token strategies using things like Anointed Procession or Hidden Stockpile, or some of the UW control spells like Seal Away or even Teferi, Hero of Dominaria. It's a cool 'didn't see this coming' effect that I might actually think about using. It's surprising me how the suggestions are actually things that I missed in initial brewing.

However, this also makes me really aware of the fact just how versatile this shell can be. I'm going to give the cards an honest shot. They do seem incredibly great. Might even think about Board the Weatherlight and think about adding some colorless options or just for the ability to find things like Etali or our Cap'n. Should also be in the spirit of the deck ;p

Might as well think about several other Rx options, just for the lolz of it.

Thanks for the suggestions, really fun to think about possible Rx Options for

aqKetoz, I see what you’re saying. Lyra Dawnbringer can be good on her own, I was just saying that she is better in an angel deck. She is a strong card regardless. And YelmsLight, I was actually thinking of Weatherlight. Its second ability is essentially a repeated Board the Weatherlight. However, if the deck needs cheaper spells, Board the Weatherlight could also be good.

I didnt go digging through the comment archive, but did you ever kick around splashing White for Board the Weatherlight? Just a thought, because it would be bonkers in this deck and wouldnt require too many tweaks to the mana base.

kdown thats a solid suggestion, but I think I like Hope of Ghirapur better just because if I modify the deck to run Board the Weatherlight (which I think I will) Hope gives me another valid target for it. Thanks!
