Disowned Ancestor Discussion
1 month ago
Hear you on the Consulate Dreadnought, will rethink it for online play especially. Though hard to resist the fun factor with friends for the times it does pull off. Without it, I may retool the defenders. Had been looking at this http://tappedout.net/mtg-questions/can-you-combo-kin-tree-invocation-and-shape-the-sands/ and Shape the Sands & Disowned Ancestor seemed useful.
Good point re: 23. Will do that. and thnx for the sideboard suggestions, will def start with some of them. Have some extra Doom Blades here. Fatal Push maybe will come down as it gets ready to leave standard next year, but for now I'll put my 1 in with some artifact/enchantment hate. :)

Looks pretty spiffy :) There's a just a few cards I would recommend:
- Skinshifter; great value considering its ridiculously low casting cost.
- Abzan Beastmaster; in this deck nigh guarantee to draw an extra card during your upkeep.
- Disowned Ancestor; again, great value for next to nothing.
- Fendeep Summoner; two trees for the price of one :)
- Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper; high toughness + life-gain when your creatures damage opponents.
- Behind the Scenes; wonderful way to make all your creatures unblockable to things that can hurt them.
- Meekstone; a great way to disable lots of opposition (works especially well if you can manage to give all your stuff vigilance).
Hope you have fun with this. I would appreciate some feedback on one of my decks if you have the time. Happy gaming!

Needs 3-4 more lands, I think. I'm talking Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, and gags Submerged Boneyard if nothing else. Better lands than those in no particular order are Dimir Aqueduct, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Opal Palace.
Also cards you could take out to put those in: Sphinx's Tutelage is better in a card draw based deck than a mill based deck. Maybe it'll get a dozen or so cards every other game, but I don't really think it's quite worth it. Isochron Scepter is good if you can hook it up with one of your half dozen instants that are worth while imprinting with it and it can go infinite w/ Dramatic Reversal and a Sol Ring or something, but I'm not sold. It's an easy two-for-one if an opponent gets rid of it and I feel like there'd be many situations that it's just a dead card in hand if you don't have one of your instants. I've seen how well Tormod's Crypt has worked, but it doesn't do enough to stay in the deck compared to some of your other "graveyard hate" cards. Plus, many of your other cards (literally) get their power from having stuff in your opponent's yard. Evil Twin isn't as bad as he thinks he is. As a removal spell he's slow and I don't see why you need a Clone in here. Body Double is worth it, though because 8/10 times people will have more creatures in their graveyard than on the battlefield against this deck. Disciple of Deceit feels... untrustworthy. If it works, though, by all means keep it. I'm not familiar enough with the deck to know what you would throw away and what you would want to go find. Maybe Crypt Incursion for the sane reason as Toromod's Crypt? Maybe switch it with Profane Memento? Also, maybe Bontu the Glorified could be cut?
Some other cards you could look out for: Altar of the Brood. Mind Sculpt. Siren of the Silent Song (I really like its draw and mill ability). Dinrova Horror, Far / Away, and Reality Shift are underrated removal spells. Also at least two more board wipes. Cyclonic Rift is just as good, if not better, here as it is anywhere else. In Garruk's Wake is pricy, mana-wise, but pretty nice. Nevinyrral's Disk is a classic. Profaner of the Dead works in here. And there are more at least decent black wipes that you could consider playing. And maybe you didn't think of these couple dudes, but they are good for butts and good in general: Disowned Ancestor, Dragon's Eye Savants and the best blocker of all time Fog Bank.

Thanks for the +1 and the constructive feedback. I agree with you that Yoked Ox is very vanilla and could be replaced with something more useful. Not Disowned Ancestor though, he is already in there. As I do not have any spells that target creatures specifically, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer does not seem to fit very well either. I am casting some black spells now and then though, so God-Pharaoh's Faithful could be valuable to me. I will look into it. Thanks again!

Might as well switch out Yoked Ox for something like Disowned Ancestor or God-Pharaoh's Faithful. Even Lagonna-Band Trailblazer has something to offer and all three should be easy to get for free from friends or something. All-in-all I love the deck and want to build with him sometime... +1 for me!

Good cuts include Elvish Skysweeper, unless you have plenty of fliers in your meta. Disowned Ancestor: fine early game, and it would be hella good if outlast wasn't a sorcery, but alas. Graveblade Marauder is okay but it's generally lackluster (relies on your dudes dying). Herald of Dromoka and Dragonscale General cancel each other out. Petrified Wood-Kin is risky and Matsu-Tribe Sniper is just sorta lame. Spirit Loop really doesn't fit the theme of the deck.
Sorry I have to be salty here, just wanted to suggest some cuts. Also maybe drop the banners for signets (eg Boros Signet).

I've had good success with Skinshifter. In the rare events you can't find or a Doran/assault formation are getting removed, a 4/4 trample can still put in work.
Disowned Ancestor is something i've been testing. Mixed success but it's not a bad 1-drop if you feel you want to speed things up a bit.
Best of luck, such a fun deck to play albeit sometimes inconsistent. Here is my list that is ever changing: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/backwards-assault/
