Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite Discussion

Hey all, with the the Iconic masters set just coming out I am finally trying to grab 3 cards I have wanted for awhile: Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Magus of the Moon and Bloodghast.

My binder isn't complete yet because I've been busy but I have a large collection and these are my primary trade candidates currently: Bloodchief Ascension, Sword of War and Peace, Birds of Paradise, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Hall of the Bandit Lord and Dark Depths. Thanks!

p0megranates: I did some goldfishing with Elspeth, Sun's Champion and it actually seems really strong. The +1 is pretty decent in a lot of scenarios, and super especially with Cradle or with Aura Shards, and if you could work to the ultimate that'd probably be game-ending, while also providing defense against enemy Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobites. I think since its so good with Cradle, and that's one of the first things you tutor for, it'd be worth trying. I'd probably cut one of the other high-cost cards; possibly Iona.

Having nine 1/1's and a Gaea's Cradle also makes Kamahl better, too.

You literally have all the cards I was going to suggest after reading your description in the deck already. So I had to actually think for a second about how to not improve the interaction, but rather just offer you some redundancy. I think you should run Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite as an additional way to kill the tokens you give your opponents (just in case they're running some anthem type effects that might otherwise interfere).

Angel of Invention, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite are a few cool late game creatures that buff your other creatures.

dlamars on Token Spellslinger list?

abby315 Yeah I included 3 token producers Metallurgic Summonings, Monastery Mentor and Talrand, Sky Summoner. I'm using Proteus Staff so I'm not sure if I wouldn't be better off dropping talrand and the mentor for something like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Avacyn, Angel of Hope? Any thoughts?

LeBeerCat Ghave is cool but he is kind of hard not to combo out. I'd kind of like to keep infinite combos out of this one that's why I steered clear of Breya, Etherium Shaper who would be pretty great too. Thank you for the suggestion though!

My list is pillowfort, but finds its wincons in amassing tokens using things like Assemble the Legion and Anointed Procession and then beating face with buffs from Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Cathars' Crusade.

There are also options like stacking keyword abilities with Archetype of Aggression, Archetype of Courage, Ankle Shanker, etc. and have Odric, Lunarch Marshal lead the charge.

Heartless Hidetsugu with double damage/lifelink/etc. also helps to hit the table hard while you sit in a healthy position which also allows your weenies to finish off your opponents.

This deck is solid. The mana denial in 1v1 is pretty overwhelming sometimes. Example: Sac'ing Flagstones of Trokair to Dust Bowl, blow up a land, and going to retrieve a plains is a solid tempo destruction.

The deck struggles sometimes to win; ergo, I was playing a game where I Green Sun's Zenithed for Armada Wurm (which was the only viable target) and used Restoration Angel when my opponent tried to kill the wurm. I've also used Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling mainly for Acidic Slime and Ramunap Excavator for utility, but often found it fizzles or doesn't call a finisher, such as Craterhoof Behemoth or Iona, Shield of Emeria or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

Aether Vial is pretty meh to say the least.

Tried the Rule of Law effects and no dice.

If you want people to just quit then I find Dovescape + Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite works well, you can also use cards like Boseiju, Who Shelters All or Taigam, Ojutai Master so you can still use your own spells
