Deafening Clarion Discussion

What would you think about switching out the green for red? This would let you play Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, Lava Coil, and maybe Deafening Clarion. If you take out the green you could swap Carnage Tyrant for Doom Whisperer or Dream Eater. Also a The Eldest Reborn in the mainboard might be nice.

Please link all cards in your question using double brackets.

Lazav, the Multifarious

Midnight Reaper

Deafening Clarion

Cleansing Nova

Yes, the game uses objects as they existed immediately before an event to see if any abilities trigger. Lazav, the Multifarious is the creature he copies with the few minor changes noted on his card. He has all abilities of those creatures and therefore he had Midnight Reaper's ability in your example.

Tripplesix Hey thanks for the +1!!! The deck does fairly well 2-2's and 3-1's at FNM's the deck does really well against midrange style decks and to my surprise can hold on long enough against aggro to turn the corner, turns out using the lifelink mode on Deafening Clarion can be pretty backbreaking. The control matchup however is abysmal but every deck does have its weakness.

You might be right about elves over Raptor Hatchling. I'm pretty back and forth between the two. But Elves is terrible against mono red and think it's worse against against weenies as well. It also has anti synergy with the Deafening Clarion plan, and hatchling works well with Savage Stomp.

I'd come to pretty much the same conclusion with Ghalta

I had considered Banefire, and it is probably better than Huatli in the sideboard. It may very well deserve more slots in the 75 than that, but I'm uncertain what else I would cut.

Thanks! I guess I have to try it without equipments. But I have to say, that I won most games just because of the power of Short Sword. :D

I guess I have to cutout Forebear's Blade and 1-2 other cards for just some copies of Deafening Clarion and Lava Coil. Got sometimes troubles against decks which flod the board with to many tokens. Also, would you suggest to replace Squire's Devotion with On Serra's Wings at least for 1-2?

dalew Yes i did. Last night was my last game with it. I did end up 2-2 in the deck in 4 rounds of magic. I might do some changes since both my losses were a close fight against jeskai control but have won against a golgari midrange and a selesniya stompy. Deafening Clarion is the one card that separates us against other aggro decks. We got main board sweeper that benefits our creatures as well. I just end up losing to a niv mizzet backed up with Dive Down (stupid diving, fire-breathing dragon) and a niv mizzet luckily top decking a Syncopate. :/. But overall, the deck feels great. I did update the deck and change Untamed Kavu and replaced it with a main board Savage Stomp for some added spot removal because of some realizations last night lol. The deck is legit and is waiting for a Stomping Ground. Can't wait for the next set to release. :)

I feel like you're going to need more going on than just winning through Maze's End, you need at least 11 lands in play at that point and every land in the deck enters tapped which puts you behind also. Something like Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar can at least get huge and block, or swing for giant chunks, and you definitely need boardwipes/spot removal because anything aggressive will run this over. Deafening Clarion and Cleansing Nova are both good options, you could also add in fogs like Root Snare to help disrupt aggressive decks as well. I would suggest Pelakka Wurm, Knight of Autumn and Carnage Tyrant as good additions, they can singlehandedly swing games in your favor. Going for a bant (blue, green, white) core splashing red (Banefire, Deafening Clarion Lava Coil) and black (Assassin's Trophy, Ritual of Soot, Vraska's Contempt) seems like the best approach to this archetype. I wouldn't be surprised if some kind of mazeshift thing exists in standard but going so all in leaves you cold to basically everything that currently exists and I wouldn't expect the next set to change that. Good luck!

dsigsbee on Boros Weenie Gain

I would like to echo some of the concerns expressed above. In order to be effective a lot of boros decks have to be very aggressive and given that you're working with mentor you may want to just dive into that instead of splitting into burn as well or, at least, splitting into in the way that you have. In that vein some really good cheap creatures with mentor would be Goblin Banneret and Sunhome Stalwart. Healer's Hawk is also a good mentor target, as it is a 1/1 and it has the added benefit of being a flyer with lifelink.

If I were making this deck I would cut a lot of the instants and sorceries, opting for 3-4 copies of both Lightning Strike and Justice Strike. Additionally, Deafening Clarion is a versatile card that you might consider adding as a replacement to Seal Away, as Seal Away has a much more limited effect than Deafening Clarion.

You might also consider the comment above regarding History of Benalia. Given that you do not have any other knights you might want to either increase the number of knights you have or swap those two out for two more Legion's Landing  Flip, as Legion has a ton of value in creature heavy decks.

As mentioned above, these are just some thoughts. Happy brewing Planeswalker!
