Call the Gatewatch Discussion

Enral on Atraxa Superfriends Greatest Deck Ever Constructed

3 weeks ago

Just having a low CMC doesn't make it a good deck. I feel like Call the Gatewatch is a trap card especially if you have access to much better tutors like Vampiric Tutor / Imperial Seal . As Foretold is slow even with proliferate. You also run a lot of creatures like Toothy, Imaginary Friend that doesn't focus on the superfriends aspect. I feel like your deck is trying to go in too many directions at the moment...trim some of the creatures for more tutors, interaction, and planeswalkers. Good luck!

5th change:

Djeru, With Eyes Open for Toothy, Imaginary Friend

Shalai, Voice of Plenty for Oath of Liliana

Oath of Gideon for Oath of Jace

Demonic Tutor for Call the Gatewatch

Sorin, Grim Nemesis for Ob Nixilis Reignited

The cards I'm considering, but not sure what to remove: - Spike Weaver - Captain Sisay

Circle of Despair is a great card, but I don't have enough creature to make it work.

Hey man! Nice deck. A few suggestions.

Have you considered using Call the Gatewatch as a tutor for all your planeswalkers and using Gideon, Ally of Zendikar make tokens and pump them up? Also, I found an extremely useful guide on how to build a good three color manabase. It's just a guide, but it's extremely helpful. The guide is below.

Good Luck,

Hey man! Thanks for the comment and upvote.

I don't think I'll use Sign in Blood as I already have Abzan Charm. I don't think I'll use Harmonize either as it conflicts with the time I want to cast set up cards like Path of Discovery. I will consider Read the Bones, as scrying is very powerful and I don't really have anything good at the three-drop slot. I might cut Call the Gatewatch for Read the Bones, but I'll have to think about at and playtest the deck.

Thanks again,

Recommended adds: Tamiyo, the Moon Sage one of the best walkers in edh... she just does nuts things

Deadeye Navigator flicker djeru, deepglow skate or thalias lancers. Win?

Bitterblossom protect those walkers bro.

Tezzeret the Seeker able to tutor chain veil to the battlefield, and goes infinite with the chain veil. Almost a 1 card win the game combo.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon another all around great card. One of the best ults in the game, and really easy to ult. Even if you don't ult him, he's a selective board wipe or removal/burn.

I'll leave what you cut for these up to you, because alot of the chooves will be largely meta dependent. The rest of the swaps I'm going to recommend are for direct upgrades to cards that are currently in your deck, meaning swap card a for card b. Not saying to cut these to make room for the above cards, unless you feel that's the best choice.

Recommended swaps Cut Day of Judgment Add Supreme Verdict or Wrath of God. Probably Verdict since regeneration isn't super common, but either one is strictly better than day of judgment.

Cut Call the Gatewatch or Mystical Tutor or Enlightened Tutor Add Vampiric Tutor

Nice looking deck man. We apparently have really similar tastes in names lmao. Have you considered running Sensei's Divining Top and/or Sylvan Library over ponder/preordain? I don't see alot of instant/sorcery synergy so having the permanents that allow you to continuously look at and dig through the top cards may or may not be helpful. I'd also recommend Djeru, With Eyes Open Over Call the Gatewatch. 2 more mana, but does WONDERS to protect your planeswalkers

First off I have to say, definitely love the way you did the CSS/HTML scheme. Just have to +1 just for that!!!

I would love some pointers on how to do the same @[email protected]

But aside from that for some suggestions:

Oath of Teferi

Vampiric Tutor

Grasp of Fate

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

Arena Rector

Teferi's Protection

Call the Gatewatch

Deploy the Gatewatch

Urza's Ruinous Blast

As Foretold

Hope that helps!

What is the win condition of this deck?

I am not too familiar with Super-Friends, but am trying to build one of my own, and am wondering if I am missing something. Some card choices I don't quite understand: Ajani Steadfast doesn't do a lot without his ult, but perhaps his -2 has more utility than I imagine. Vivien Reid seems like a better fit than Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, since Vivian helps with manna better and can snipe flyers, along with having a more impactful ult (perhaps this list was uploaded before Reid?). Pull from Tomorrow may be better than Sphinx's Revelation, as it costs one less, and the negatives (no life gain and forced to discard a card) don't seem to be relevant. I'm also wondering why there are not a couple more counterspells or tutors that are not so specific; I would rather be able to tutor for anything from my deck (Vampiric Tutor) than have to search specifically for Planeswalkers (Call the Gatewatch).
