Conclave Tribunal Discussion
3 weeks ago
I'd replace the Courage in Crisis es with Pledge of Unity s, as you have a ton of proliferate, but not many enablers, i.e ways to actually get a bunch of counters. Since you're pretty lacking in interaction, Prison Realm s or Conclave Tribunal would be a great addition, and maybe a Song of Freyalise as a strong, efficient finisher. Knight of Autumn has counter synergy and so does Venerated Loxodon .

VampiricJace Of course! I'm happy to help someone especially if they're finding it troublesome to get a good idea on what's hot and what's not:)
I'd say you definitely have a point with the Cast Down as it is definitive removal and should definitely be in the deck, but it does have the downside of being a destroy effect and not a reduction effect like Moment of Craving . If you're shooting for BO3 I would recommend having the Cast Down mainboard and Moment of Craving sideboard just to be on the safe side of things in case they happen to not be running aggro and Moment of Craving is a bit less effective. The Mirari Conjecture is a very useful card, don't get me wrong, but in a dire situation it can be too slow to provide an answer if you're using it to recur card draw. It's perfect for snatching back a Vraska's Contempt or something or the other, but again just a tad on the slow side. I don't mean to insult you or your creative incorporation of a not super often used card, so I apologize if I sound a bit pretentious or ass-hat esc. Wall of Runes is yet again another twist, and I do quite like it in all honesty. Against mono-red, they'll have to spend burn spells to remove it and punch through for damage. That's just burn not being blasted at your face. Against mono-white it's a solid wall until you manage to remove their board state and stabilize, although mono-white has nice access to Ixalan's Binding and Conclave Tribunal . I hope my limited knowledge does help at least to some degree, I can't say I know the most about magic as I only started playing recently. I've got a nice LGS though with a very bright and Magic-loving owner who helped me get things going for myself in standard and I'm pleased to continue passing on the favor.

The thing about a Feather deck is that you want to use his effect as much as possible. Play any instant, targeting one of your own creatures, and you get it back at the end of turn to play again next turn. Sheltering Light and Adamant Will can then protect a creature every turn and cards like Dauntless Bodyguard become redundant.
Any creature with double-strike equipped with Run Amok and Sheltering Light could end up doing a lot of damage. You then have the option of aiming for a high cmc creature like Goring Ceratops , or something like Swiftblade Vindicator and more instants like Sure Strike . With Feather in the mix, I would lean toward cheap instant spells.
The idea of bringing in Battlefield Promotion is interesting. More so if you had Ajani's Pridemate or Gideon's Company on the field. The problem is that you need to fit a large number of cheap instant spells into the deck and trying to fit in too many strategies could mean that you fail with them all. Adanto Vanguard , as a stand-alone creature just seems far too risky - you have a limited number of creature spots.
How much control you build into the deck will always be a debating point. If you can quickly build a powerful indestructible attacking force, maybe you can run over a number of decks with very little control. The combination of Teyo, the Shieldmage and Shalai, Voice of Plenty could give you blanket protection, but is likely to slow the deck down considerably. Ditto for Ixalan's Binding , Prison Realm , Conclave Tribunal etc. I would tend to have some of these cards in the side-board and aim for a high-tempo, win quickly approach with an equal number of impact creatures and boosting instant spells.
Although I haven't play-tested the concept, I rather like War of the Feather M

Thank you for the explanation on Vicious Rumors and Ashiok, Dream Render , the choices make a lot more sense to me. I do see the graveyard hate of the Sentinel Totem as being worth keeping in the sideboard, as it helps shut down Rekindling Phoenix , Find / Finality , Pteramander , Enigma Drake , Search for Azcanta Flip, and Arclight Phoenix , as well as the few jump-start cards you often see, such as Risk Factor and Chemister's Insight . This feels like a really nice variety of targets for what is, as you said, an extremely low opportunity cost to play the totem. I'm really skeptical about Urgoros, the Empty One as a finisher, and if you're just playing him for flavor/as a pet card, you can skip the rest of my spam. Otherwise, he seems really weak as far as dimir finishers go. While drawing one/making your opponent discard is fine, six whole mana for a 4/3 flyer seems extremely vulnerable to a vast multitude of commonly played removal spells like Lightning Strike , Lava Coil , Kraul Harpooner , Collision / Colossus , Vivien Reid and Shivan Fire as well as other, more niche spells like Skewer the Critics . As a comparison to Urgoros, we can take the new God-Eternal Kefnet . Kefnet not only dodges 3/4 damage burn removal, but also comes down much earlier while also dodging exile effects like Vraska's Contempt , Conclave Tribunal , the aforementioned Lava Coil and other sad endings your game-ending threat could meet. To top this, Kefnet provides an identical clock to Urgoros, with the added advantage of letting you rip discounted sweepers/removal off the top to stabilize a board in the midgame, or use a draw/targeted discard spell for some tasty card advantage. Alternatively, if you find that you don't need Kefnet's resilience due to your ability to protect Urgoros, I think Doom Whisperer is a stronger contender for the slot, as he lets you keep surveiling to spam fake news and sift out poor topdecks/flood. Doom also has the relevant addition of greater p/t, granting your finisher a speedier clock as well as incidental resistence to many of the previously mentioned removal spells, all for a lower cmc than Urgoros.

If you want to be able to consistently cast Benalish Marshal , you're going to have to make sure all of your lands tap for white mana. Unclaimed Territory & Godless Shrine can help with that. Since this will also make casting Murder more difficult, I'd replace it with Conclave Tribunal . I'd say it's an upgrade over Murder as it also helps you get the City's Blessing. Mortify is better than Murder as well. Midnight Reaper is probably the best Knight you don't currently have in your deck, I'd recommend finding room for him.

What other Orzhov spot removal would you recommend Dreamweav3r? Yes, I realize that Conclave Tribunal is more valuable when it can be convoked rather than hard cast, but I just feel like I need the max amount of defense with this deck.

Might Want to consider spot removal that actually kills creatures rather than exile them. Conclave Tribunal really only should be played in decks with many creatures.

Yes I have to agree that Midnight Guard is way two situational now that I look at it. It only goes infinite with Presence of Gond and that is way to narrow for the 2/3 stat line that he offers. There is also a couple voltron decks in my play group, so I will have to deal with commander damage at some point. I'll switch out Midnight Guard with Darksteel Mutation since I have a copy. I'll look into getting a copy of Conclave Tribunal , Ixalan's Binding , or Might of the Masses to replace Griffin Protector . I like Might of the Masses because of the modular nature. The deck comes in today, so I'll be back with updates from actually playing the deck!
