Okay, brace yourself. I'm going all out.

  • P.S. Sorry that my inner spike ignores price...

nyoumans on Baral ist mein Homey

1 week ago

Karten, die fuer Dein Deck interessant sein duerften:

Allgemein gut gegen Counter und Control: Orim's Chant, Silence, Savage Summoning, Autumn's Veil

Anti-meta Tech: Wasteland Strangler, Tocatli Honor Guard, Hushwing Gryff, Pithing Needle, Gaddock Teeg, Containment Priest, Price of Glory, Palace Jailer, World Queller.

Gute Beaters, die mit Deinem Deck synergistisch sind: Grave Titan, Restoration Angel, Creakwood Liege.

Tutoren: Green Sun's Zenith, Buried Alive, Entomb.

Utility: Dryad Arbor, Qasali Pridemage.

Mana-Fixing / Ramp: Murmuring Bosk, Lotus Cobra

Karten, die ich Dir abraten wuerde:

Crop Rotation: kein Gewinn, da Cradle gebannt ist, riskant gegen Counter

Felidar Guardian: schlecht als Beater, macht nichts ausserhalb Deiner Kombo

Leyline of the Void: Du spielst Reanimation, nur gut gegen blitzschnelle Kombos (z.B. Breakfast Hulk), sehr schlechter Top-Deck

Ok, thanks again for the help! I will remove Knotvine Paladin for Conqueror's Flail. I had a question as well. I was wondering if you though it would be worth it to remove more of the "Bant Good Stuff" as I call it to put in more hate to protect Rafiq?

So doing something like this:

REMOVE: Sublime Archangel, Sigiled Paladin, Knight of Glory, Jenara, Asura of War, Battlegrace Angel, and Knight of New Alara

ADD:Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Containment Priest, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Eidolon of Rhetoric, and Manglehorn

Emzed on Yisan, the wanderer bard combo

3 weeks ago

Seedborn Muse goes bonkers with Yisan, Woodland Bellower is a great tool for assembling combos, and Regal Force can be very valuable when you're forced to play a fair game. Did you consciously exclude those cards or are they not on your radar?
Since you have a good suite of stax cards, I suggest adding Phyrexian Revoker and Lodestone Golem too. Finding one of those when needed can be great for the stax plan.
Currently your list is a little light on creature removal. Cards like Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Aven Mindcensor or Containment Priest can be huge problems, and having an answer is crucial. Mouth of Ronom, while not exactly efficient, can be found via land tutors. Ulvenwald Tracker is cheap enough that you might be able to grab it with Yisan in time to deal with the hate. Lignify can shut down opposing commanders for a while.

The main thing Containment Priest does is stopping other faster combos from going off like 0% Basic (Hermit Druid), or other Protean Hulk combos that run Flash.

But Containment Priest kills the combo

For help with the SB, I think Erayo is probably only good if you are playing Bomberman and can consistently play that many spells in one turn.
