Celestial Mantle Discussion
1 month ago
Both of you made some good suggestions and im really considering them. Thanks for your help in that regard^^
The first card Martyr of Sands is a card that I always hear about when it comes to lifegaindecks but im really sceptical with it. First of all im a really agressive player and get all my cheap creatures on the board in about 1 to 3 turns. That leaves me with 2 or 3 cards in my hand in the early game and mostly 1 to 2 cards in the later stages of the game. That means that I can only really capitalize on Martyr of Sands if I draw it in my first hand or in my second turn. The chances of this happening are to slim for my taste so Im sticking with cards like Wall of Reverence that is indeed slower but extremly strong with a buffed Ajani's Pridemate (wich is on my field in nearly every game). This can gain me 30 life in the turn that its played and combined with Sunbond buffs my creature to oblivion wich in return gives me nearly infinite lifepoints if nobody answeres it in time.
The cards Lone Rider Flip and Rhox Faithmender really caught my Eye. I want at least 2 lone rides and 1 Rhox in my deck now but im not sure what to exchange for it. Probably 2 plains and Celestial Mantle cause this card is to gimmiky and can take of with Whispersilk Cloak but this is unlikely to happen.
Thanks for both of your Feedbacks. I really appreciated them :)

+1 on the above Deathrender suggestion. Have you considered Phyrexian Processor and the new Evra, Halcyon Witness? Act of Aggression is on theme and you can pay life for some of its mana, which you will likely have in spades. Eldrazi Displacer would be good to combo with the ETB temporary stealers, as well as blinking to save Brion or other creatures from targeting affects, or even reset Brion for another fling if he has haste. Felidar Sovereign, Insurrection, and Storm Herd could make for some win conditions, and Rhox Faithmender could help get you there. I really like Divine Reckoning in a deck like this, because your opponents will probably keep their juiciest creatures around, and they'll likely be ripe for the ol' nick-and-flick. Lastly, Celestial Mantle, while unwieldy, could make for some fantastic and splashy plays.

This looks like fun to play with, but if you're trying to make it stronger you'd need to focus your strategies to one play style. That said, you should look at cards like Celestial Mantle and Kokusho, the Evening Star. There's a lot going on here and it looks pretty cool

@JuQ Thanks for the tips. I had considered putting all of the Enchantresses into the deck, but Argothian Enchantress has shroud so she doesn't play to my deck strength. All of the others that are creatures I can buff. Kor Spiritdancer is definitely on my aquire list, as are Herald of the Pantheon, Shield of the Oversoul, Bear Umbra, Celestial Mantle, and Awakening.

Just to say Celestial Mantle is a terrible idea for Karona, since the aura doubles the Life of the CREATURE CONTROLLER aka not the creature's owner or the aura's controller

Would you mind commenting on Ojutai Voltron Control 1.0 as well? That is technically the deck posted above yours, and rightfully deserves feedback. I would hate for anyone to miss out. Also, it is a tad more helpful if you comment on the deck itself, rather than provide your feedback in the advertising thread.
Regarding your suggestions, I used Assault Suit in the past, and found it to be lacklustre--its large mana investment (both to play and to equip), combined with its lack of other synergies proved disappointing. I'll sub it in if my meta becomes more sacrifice heavy, but it does not have a place at this time.
Celestial Mantle would not work as you said--I do not control Karona, so if they attacked me their life totals would be doubled.
Eldrazi Conscription is a pretty nifty card, but ultimately I decided not to go with it. While tutoring it with Soveriegns is an incredibly powerful play, it is effectively a dead draw otherwise--while I often have the free mana to play it, a single enchantment for 8 mana does less for me than 2 3-4 mana enchantments, given the number of synergies.
I keep meaning to playtest Privileged Position, I just never have gotten around to it. Thanks for putting this back on my radar!
