Compulsory Rest Discussion

There are also some denial cards like Compulsory Rest that would have a good place in this deck, in either the sideboard or maybeboard.

Hey Rex_JB24, thanks for commenting! I like some of your suggestions, I think I can go down 2 Censor and up 2 Compulsory Rest as Censor is basically only good early in game 1. In the sideboard I could probably go down 1 each Sentinel Totem and Forsake the Worldly to squeeze in 2 Authority of the Consuls, I don't need to completely dominate aggro early, just get to Fumigate and then it's smooth sailing, this will probably help that greatly, thanks for your suggestions!

I had a look at this deck and loved the concept. As I looked deeper, I however, found that I would want to change out a number of cards that you used (getting rid of Bontu's Last Reckoning, swapping Cast Out for Compulsory Rest and getting more value from Dreamstealer). I took this deck and made changes - which led to further changes, etc. and ended up with Stealing Sanity.

This might just work better as a Red/white deck. The reason that I say this is Call for Unity. If you replaced Noxious Gearhulk and Oketra the True with Angel of Condemnation, once per turn you could blink something like Deadeye Harpooner to kill an opponents creature and give all of your own creatures +1/+1, and also trigger Hidden Stockpile. Mega-buffs on your own creatures could provide an extra win-con. You could replace Fatal Push with something like Compulsory Rest. I would then tend to go with 2 Anointer Priest and 2 Deadeye Harpooner, or even lose a couple of lands ( or a Fatal Push/Ghirapur Orrery) for extra creatures.

The only things Compulsory Rest doesn't help against are vehicles and Gideon. You could sideboard in Cast Out to protect against noncreatures. Anyway, good luck!

Your only big issue is aggro. Oketra's Last Mercy is only helpful if the opponent isn't doing 10+ damage on T3, which aggro might be. Then you lose. Sunbird's Invocation is too expensive for what it is. You already win if you get to T7, T8, etc. You need to make it there. I would take both of those out for:

4x Magma Spray

3x Compulsory Rest

Just to make sure you get to T7+

My 2 cents! I like the deck... very fun!

My first amonkhet deck was a RW exert deck.With Glory-Bound Initiate or Combat Celebrant having vigilance thanks to Always Watching . But the thing is I'm guessing you're trying to make a rotation proof deck, so no more Always Watching and this is a big problem... Without the enchantment, the deck slows down A LOT. But besides that, the only thing I'd change is add removals: 4x Compulsory Rest are not enough, and also don't cover every threat. I'd suggest you use perhaps 3x Compulsory Rest and some of: Cast Out, Abrade, Shock or Magma Spray

As for creatures, you can consider Battlefield Scavenger or Ahn-Crop Crasher, which is a very good card !

Good luck !

You could use some removal spells, I think. Compulsory Rest would work pretty well against most decks. Ambuscade costs more but is a bit more permanent. Cast Out might also be nice since it hits anything.
