Chastise Discussion

LuciferHex on Alesha and fun

Also some suggestions. Unquestioned Authority is better than Angelic Gift.

Return to Dust and Crush Contraband are worth testing out.

You should cut Chastise and add Swords to Plowshares as it's super cheap and a lot better. Path to Exile is also a pretty great option.

Knight of Grace and Malice, Blinding Angel and AErathi Berserker are just balls of stats that are really not strong enough for EDH.

Liliana's Shade and Celestial Crusader aren't very good in three color decks.

And Agent of Masks and Bounty Hunter are too slow.

Then again if you are running any of these because their pet cards or you like the art or enjoy peoples reaction to them then, by all means, run them. But assuming you're looking for power level i'd cut these.

MoGoose831 Yup I've played the deck quite a few times. My favorite combo so far is Repercussion and Blasphemous Act. I agree though.....the second ability of FSSS isn't great, it'll just come in handy for cards such as Chastise or Cursebreak. Aside from that, I would just build the deck around the burn ability.

Just got my hands on F&S and am starting to build my deck. Have you had any chances to test the deck out yet?

Im planning on running Felidar Sovereign and Storm Herd as alternate win cons in addition to Aetherflux Reservoir.

The problem with most gain life cards is that they are pretty terrible in comparison to burn. Chastise seems to be a pretty decent addition tho.

I would remove the following cards: 1. Soldier of the Pantheon- It has too small of an effect. 2.Blinding Light- It is Sorcery speed so it can only be used offensively and the effect is too small. 3. Defy Death- This effect is alright but is really situational. It is a victim of having only 100 cards.4. Staff of the Sun Magus- Too small of an effect.5. Scroll of Avacyn- Too small of an effect.6. Marble Diamond- Mediocre card that is just "alright".7. Coldsteel Heart- same as Marble Diamond.8. Reverse Damage- 100% reactive cards are often dead draws.9. Chastise- Same as Reverse Damage.10. Moonlit Wake- To small of an effect.11. Sun Droplet- +1 life a turn is awful. Use this card as a coaster.---The above cards are all bad and are easy cuts.-The last two cuts are hard, but id suggest one card for sure:12. Sensei's Divining Top- with only 1 card draw engine Well of Lost Dreams and no other shuffle effects, the top is not very good at all. Great card in a bad situation. I would cut it.---As for the 13th cut; you will have to playtest and see what feels underwhelming, too often.

I would cut 13 Plains.

Nah Jk

As for actual cuts, Belbe's Portal just never impressed me as opposed to actual ramp cards. However, it does allow for flash and a small mana reduction, so I might be wrong.

Staff of the Sun Magus just doesn't do enough. You'll be gaining excessive amounts of life anyway, so a 3-mana artifact that lets you gain 1-2 life a turn is pretty much pointless.

Chastise and Reverse Damage seem to expensive mana wise for what they do, unless your meta is heavy on people who attack with a single massive creature that doesn't have hexproof for some reason.

Moonlit Wake also seems like too little effect. If you really want that effect, Ashes of the Abhorrent is strictly better in Angels outside of Reya Dawnbringer, which you aren't even playing

Soldier of the Pantheon seems low effect. Even if your opponents are playing heavy multicolor cards, I doubt it gains more life than just a Soul Warden effect (which I also don't suggest playing)

Oketra's Monument, Scroll of Avacyn, and Sun Droplet also seem too low effect to be worth a card slot. Sun Droplet is only good if you want a lot of whenever you gain life triggers, like in Karlov of the Ghost Council. Oketra's Monument is a bad Pearl Medallion, and I don't think the warrior tokens are too important in your deck. And Scroll of Avacyn is just pretty bad.

That's what I saw to cut. I, too, am building Lyra Dawnbringer (I pulled a foil at prerelease!), do you think you could help me with cuts?

I feel like one of your biggest problems will be the ability to actually punch through for damage without getting chumped. Have you considered Overrun effects?

You're 1 card over 60, and if you feel like cutting something, Ajani, Caller of the Pride seems a bit conditional (he's only useful for his middle ability).

I agree that Voice of Resurgence seems good here. I might cut Chastise for it - Chastise seems like far too much mana for its effect.

foxboy1000 on White Male Privilege

n0bunga trust me this would have been a lot more tongue and cheek if the cards allowed it, but sadly they did not. I did what I could with things like; Not Forgotten being a nod towards the "you will not replace us" Charlottesville line, as well as Pariah being a little more on the nose, I also included Land Tax as the original white privilege, there is also Condemn and Chastise which should be rather obvious what they stand for.

I haven't brought politics into Magic, they're already here, I'm just making a deck that at it's core makes me laugh because of how absurd it is. Politics have already been brought into magic by more people than me, if it were a politic free space I wouldn't have made this. Side note; Dank memes would not have been well received by anybody who isn't part of that internet culture.

I'd hardly consider this a children's card game. When was the last time you walked into your LGS and saw a majority children? This is by and large a young adult and adult's game. The argument that this is a children's card game just doesn't hold water.
