Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite Discussion

I forget his name but somebody at the gameshop told me Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Kormus Bell, then Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. It's in your colors too! I'll be at the shop Wednesday. Happy gaming!

It's me from the game shop. I went with a different decklist seen here Sisters by Different Misters. The cards I need now are Kormus Bell, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, True Conviction, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Akroma's Memorial, and Rhox Faithmender. I still have that card you wanted. I couldn't figure out how to use the chat or how to follow people here, so I had to do it this way. I +1'd your deck because I think it's cool and love the description. It's given me a lot to think about.

A gentleman at the gameshop told me of a combo: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Kormus Bell + Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.It blows up all your opponent's land and gives you a bunch of 3/3 creatures.

You need ramp. Mono white is hard to be consistent in getting enough mana for late game unless you're running rocks and a doubler or two.

You need Sol Ring, no question. Worn Powerstone could be good too. You can probably afford a Caged Sun, maybe a Thran Dynamo, Doubling Cube or Gilded Lotus. They will really help your consistency. Solemn Simulacrum is an auto include, gets you a land and draws a card, Burnished Hart is also good. Any of those will help you accelerate and have more options. Bare minimum get sol ring and solemn in there.

Otherwise, "cheap" cards that fit your theme are Yosei, the Morning Star, Aven Mindcensor, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, Hushwing Gryff, Grand Abolisher, Karmic Guide, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Admonition Angel, Emeria Shepherd, etc

Could go big with an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite....

I would add Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite to this deck. She makes your tokens bigger and also makes your opponent's creatures weaker.

I think you do need to add Living Plane (or any of the several other enchantments that do the same). The combos with Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite are just too perfect, and it gives redundancy for Kamahl, Fist of Krosa.

I know this was previously in the list, but I'd usually want Command Beacon over Winding Canyons, if you're not willing to cut a color-producing land.

Are you going to pick up the new Invocation Loyal Retainers? It's super pretty, I saw someone open one :)

I'm looking through the Amonkhet setlist to see if anything fits, and not much is coming to mind. Maybe Harvest Season to kickstart your ramp? With Avacyn's Pilgrim, Voyaging Satyr, etc it could easily ramp 3 lands on T3. Perhaps one of the monuments? Tutorable cost reduction is nice I guess. Scattered Groves is another dual-land for Knight of the Reliquary. If Oracle's Vault were legendary, it would be neat with Paradox Engine but unfortunately it's not :(

Now that Protean Hulk is unbanned you might find a slot. Can't be tutored, but when it dies you should be able to immediately win.

Hope this helps a bit!

Silvers suffer from a terminal condition called "glassy" thus field wipes such as Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Black Sun's Zenith and even blazing volley can decimate your army at very little cost. Therefore consider buffing them up a bit with your own Elesh Norn, Megantic Sliver, or Always Watching . I will always recommend Coat of Arms for hard tribal like this.

I've got plenty more of ideas if ya want more, this kind of magic is my sort of thing :P Just don't forget to add draw into this deck. Phyrexian Arena, Rhystic Study and so on will keep you pissing people off with card advantage.
