Divine Offering Discussion

Update: Took out Divine Offering for The Immortal Sun = I had way too much artifact and enchantment removal. Cursebreak for Mind's Eye = That extra Mana now has a use. I am also fixing that dead draw. Solemn Offering for Land Tax = Unseen Card advantage by thinning out the deck. Plus never missing a land drop is nice. Terashi's Grasp for Mana Vault = When I am having downtime waiting to blow up the board state, I can untap with the four mana. The ping of one damage really is not seen by how much the life gain is represented here. Then, Repercussion for Boros Signet = This was great, but I am susceptible to mass artifact removal.

Did come into a weird situation that needs addressing. Someone puts Followed Footsteps on my Stuffy Doll. They name me. I have Pariah on my Stuffy Doll and Repercussion. What happens here? My judge classes give me the sense that I essentially loop and the loop cannot stop. In that time the damage has nowhere to go that will hurt the game state. Thus, moving on with the game happens.

Lastly, I am looking for a slot for Authority of the Consuls. The choices are getting hard. I am considering Mizzium Mortars only because I have board wipe already in mass.

Any thoughts?

The great majority of your creature make you gain life: it seem redundant to use an aura and an equipment to give lifelink. And Ajani's Mantra really doesn't worth it. Put in at least some removal, like Journey to Nowhere or Oblivion Ring. If your are thinking about a sideboard: Divine Offering.

TheVectornaut on Flicker Budget Isochron

Since you already have Isochron Scepter, you could try something like Divine Offering or Purge to get rid of artifacts. A more traditional sideboard option is Stony Silence, but it's pretty expensive. For burn, you may just be able to keep out of range by gaining life every turn. You could try flickering something like Cathedral Sanctifier or even Inquisitor Exarch, or you might just put a Rest for the Weary on a stick. Elixir of Immortality is already fairly strong against mill, but Quest for Ancient Secrets is another option. There's also always Wheel of Sun and Moon if you ever decided to break budget.

Ssserra on Blood is Life... And your Death

Looks like a fun deck!

Am I reading it right that Exquisite Blood paired with Sanguine Blood creates a loop of endless damage to him and enless lifegain to you?

Example: You have both cards on the battlefield. You deal one damage to him somehow. Exquisite Blood triggers, gaining you one life. The lifegain triggers Sanguine Blood, making your opponent lose one life, triggering Exquisite Blood again... and on and on...

If so, that's a pretty sweet combo, even if Exquisite Blood is a little pricey.

What about Divine Offering instead of Mortify? One less mana and has lifegain.

Ah, there are a ton of options there. I'm just going to name some cards, you can select any of them to help you find what you need.


Divine Offering

Seal of Cleansing


Aura of Silence (to make it harder for your opponent to cast them or to make him tap out/make it harder to cast 2 spells in one turn. can help lategame if sacrificed

Solemn Offering

Terashi's Grasp

Ray of Distortion

Akroma's Vengeance

Austere Command

Hey, look at my Sideboard. somehow in any sideboard there are deck related Sideboard cards. The other cards are cards that counter the most varety of Meta graveyard hate works most of the time. Also board swipes or other control parts. Kiki-Jiki, the Deciever Exarch

Maybe in your case there would be more discard spells a good assumption because you could improve your control on that site if you have the need. Duress

Bouardseep is auto included trough your Thing in the Ice  Flip but to make it absolute you could also play Wrath of God.

Gravyard Hate: Relic of Progenitus

Artefact or enchantement hate: Divine Offering? Disenchant there are many spells that are better but occupie much more mana. but you could serch for them on: magiccards.info

jellowsmurf on Extreme Budget Healers and Poisons

Great deck! Not sure what the budget is, but Felidar Sovereign or Serra Avatar I feel are needs for this deck since you gain so much life. It also seems like you're going on the offensive with everything, but your instants are kinda stagnant. I'm more of a control player so I like lifegain to do something else too. Blunt the Assault, Awe Strike, Dazzling Reflection, or Divine Offering are cards I ran across trying to do my own lifegain type thing. If you can get enough creatures to make it useful Ondu Rising could be cool or lifelink giving cards in general. Farfetched, but fun to think about Serra Avatar with lifelink lol.

Mos def gonna be over budget, but Alhammarret's Archive might be considered since it would be such a powerhouse. Every turn it's up with your commander's ability you get two card and double the lifegain.

I'm a fairly new magic player, and even newer to Commander; but I hope my suggestions are useful!

The deck I think would have the hardest time if they unbanned SFM is mono . Everything else I could think of already main-baords or side-boards answers for Affinity:

: Abrupt Decay
: Ancient Grudge / Destructive Revelry
: Kolaghan's Command
: Qasali Pridemage
: Tons of cards, albeit not optimal ones, and counters.
: Nothing great here but Reclamation Sage + Counters is decent. : Wear / Tear
: See minus the .
: See Reclamation Sage
: Bouncey bounce? Counters?
: Disenchant, Divine Offering (Soul Sisters)

So it's not really an issue of answers, it's an issue of speed. Let us remember then that T3 Batterskull not only dies to most of what's above but is shut down by all the affinity hate such as Stony Silence.

If I am on the draw vs SFM then I will either dsicard it, Spell Snare it, kill it and swing through, or blow up their artifact. The value is still very good, but I don't think it's game-ending anymore.
