Dawn Charm Discussion
1 day ago
@codpieceofjustice Brave the Elements does not protect from any sweepers as they do not target.
@Sinchiroca The green is for Collected Company, which is a house in this deck. Gavony Township is must have in any deck that is running creatures and G/W. Also this is a modern deck so Swords to Plowshares is illegal, although the Dawn Charm might be decent sideboard tech. Probably better than rootborn defences.

I'm not sure you are running enough spells to make the Scepter worth it. This looks more like a U/W tempo creature deck. To make it more of a Scepter deck I would add those Silences from the SB to the MB.
These are great options as well:

StinjyJumpingJew Hey friend awesome deck +1, is there any reason why you have those lands Gavony Township, Ghost Quarter and the green lands? I dont see the value of some of them for your deck. Also have you not considered some quick protection like Swords to Plowshares or Dawn Charm to avoid direct combat damage or for the enemy player killing some vital buffer cards? Have you play tested it as is? How does it feel?

Dawn Charm would seem the logical straight replacement, but I am not sure if is the right one. It is truly inferior, on almost every front, but that does not mean that there aren't better choices for removal. I am still considering, and Dawn Charm is likely to stay.
I think I need to give a better description on the entire raison d'etre for this deck. Using my opponents to forward my game plan is subtle, but central to everything in this deck.

That's a fair point (and honestly, the notions of opponents killing opponents makes Disrupt Decorum all the more exciting for me and an auto-include once it's in my hands). I also feel that Teferi's Protection just straight up replaces Dawn Charm in the long run and will be swapping them.

Hey, I've been out of commission for a couple of weeks camping. Good for the soul, but it has definitely kept me from responding to comments.
As for C17 cards to consider:
Stalking Leonin looks to be interesting, but I feel like it would be too soft of a deterrent. I am not sure what the psychological effect of the threat of a possible retribution would be, but I am afraid it would be much less than an assured retribution. I would love to hear about your experience with it though, MegaMatt13.
Disrupt Decorum will definitely be a card I trial, possibly in a Threaten effect slot. This will be a massive board state disrupter, if nothing else, and could enhance my general strategy. I may find it a little too disruptive, though, and it may disrupt my general plan of allowing each players' deck to accomplish my goal of winning. I often find that forcing things with this deck end up with less than optimal results. We shall see.
Teferi's Protection has a home in this deck, I just have to figure out where to fit it. This is a definite. Amazing protection. Potentially the most powerful Fog effect ever printed. Sort of combines the boardstate protection of Boros Charm with everything Dawn Charm does, only better. It artfully combats board wipes, it is an asymmetric Fog for you alone for every turn until your next, and it can keep you out of the fray for a setup round before a big game ending attack of your own.
Mathas, Fiend Seeker is a card that will likely be antisynergistic with the deck, similar to wrath effects. I want them to keep their stuff, just point it away from me. Definitely not a viable replacement for Queen Marchesa as commander. An interesting commander in it's own right, and would even play well with many of the cards in this list, but with a different battle plan. I don't plan to include it.
Curse of Opulence is a really interesting card that may find a home in the deck. It combines ramp with encouraging people to aim threats elsewhere. With a CMC of , it fits the low curve nicely. I imagine Curse of Opulence could have a similar effect on opponent choices as Duelist's Heritage, but with the added effect of ramping me as opposed to just beating down my opponents. I definitely want to trial this card. The talk on the usual forums makes this card seem worthless and a sign of casual play, which is perfectly in line with the goals of the deck.
The last thing I was thinking about is inclusion of Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. She comes down super late, but she makes the world a much more dangerous place for every other player, and a safer place for me. She does paint a target on me, but I would hope that I have the game relatively secure by the time she comes down. She makes all of my symmetric effects very asymmetrical. On her own, she is a powerhouse wincon. I have been resisting, but I think that many reasonable voices are convincing me to at least trial her. She will replace Gisela, Broken Blade as a more effective wincon.

While Wear / Tear is an excellent card, bear in mind that with recent rules changes it cannot be imprinted on Isochron Scepter as it has a CMC of 3. I recommend putting them in the sideboard.

Changes look great.
I just found two cards that are on budget and worth a try, check out Debt of Loyalty, off color creature steal that no one will expect, and Dawn Charm is absolutely amazing versatility wrapped in a super budget friendly package almost an auto include for any white decks I have WHITE COUNTERSPELL!!!!!
