Bower Passage Discussion

I like the inclusion of Kaalia of the Vast and Bower Passage.

Slumbering Dragon is a good attack deterrent, and will help get you into the late game to play your big dragons. Savage Ventmaw is another great dragon, great ramp and works well with the Signets.

In general terms, more haste enablers could help.

Your mana base could be improved(biggest problem with the pre-con). Check out for all the lands you could use. You can also improve the artifact ramp package.

Hope this helps! Good luck with it!

Right on man, I think I have a Stony Silence around here somewhere, I'll think on it, I'm not big into Control these days, but the other 2 cards I don't have, I like the Bower Passage, I will try to find one of those for sure. Well, I've been comparing our 2 decks off and on all day, and one thing that comes to mind is Why don't you run Fetch Lands? I get it if It's a cost thing, but they are so amazing for thinning out the deck and pulling the lands you want. Just curious. Thanks again for the suggestions!

Well, since you've got only ONE artifact in the whole deck, why not try to run Stony Silence? It'll hurt more opponents than yourself.

Maybe a Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury for token generation, mana ramp, and artifact/enchantment destruction on a stick? (Plus the card draw!)

Also, i can't stress enough taking Bower Passage. It literally gives unblockable to all of your flyers.

Other Anti Flier cards: Dense Canopy, Gravity Well, Raking Canopy and Bower Passage.

Dense Canopy and Bower Passage make it so your flying opponents can't block your creatures either if you want an all out swing fest

Gravity Well and Raking Canopy make your opponents think hard about combat since they will lose flying and or their creatures will take a hit when they swing.

Personally I run Gravity Well in my mono green deck. It has no flying whatsoever so having it is a nice failsafe.

Scourge of Valkas and Utvara Hellkite always good in dragon tribal. Scourge of the Throne is also fun and I'm a fan of Thundermaw Hellkite to tap down potential blockers. Bower Passage is pretty cruel. Quicksilver Amulet nice way to cheat in some fatties.

Nice build, +1

So, I was wondering why my deck consistently underperformed, and after reviewing my deck a bit I realized I somehow ended up only running 31 lands and a lot more high cost things than I should've been playing. I also realized I was running a bit of lockdown stuff, and I think wanted to tone that down a bit in favor of more tribal support. As this was the case, I decided to fix it up a bit.

Its difficult to make budget reccomendations in a general sense, because its difficult to know how likely your meta is to show their weaknesses. If you're seeing a lot of fetches and toolbox strategies, arbiter is the correct choice, but there are a huge array of possibilities which while situational, might be more appropriate.

Grand Abolisher does a lot as a single step down to help resolve worship. Most of the creatures for consideration are already in hatebears lists. Personally, I'd much prefer to try and resolve a Pithing Needle or Phyrexian Revoker for the number of sacrifice effects tied to plainswalkers and general combo peices in my meta, and when operating on a budget colourless cards that can be swapped between decks on a sideboard really do help . I'd consider a single Spirit of the Labyrinth- it is very vulnerable to removal, but has a lot of utility blocking combo until they can fetch an answer. Cards like Storage Matrix/Witchbane Orb are similarly disruptive if looking for budget options, but cmc is super important when looking for tools. The manadorks will help, but it is a consideration. Dawn Charm has utility. Heliod's Pilgrim can search out pariah for combo-wombo, but otherwise isn't very useful. Bower Passage has blowout potential against decks reliant on lingering souls to stabilize, or Gravity Well to handle a lack of flying coverage. Some people swear by Skinshifter. Scryb Ranger is a dumb trick that can win games.

There are a lot of cards out there- there is going to be something to fit exactly what you need. Thalia is popular because she is such a great generalist. If you're casting spells, nope, wait another turn. But for budget, look at what you regularly face and find something that people sideboard to do that delay, even if it the lowly fog effect of Dawn Charm.
