Elspeth, Knight-Errant Discussion
6 days ago
I only run 3 auras, flickering is one of them. Its kind of what drew me to Sram in the first place since I used to run a mono-white enchantment Mesa Enchantress constructed. I agree though, more artifacts the better.
I wish I had a mana crypt for my sram i'd swap my sol ring, but beyond that I really just wanted you to look at mana reduction more. Its the key to breaking Sram consistently, but yeah def sub other cards first. Quadrastrike is hilarious, I was tempted to run it myself but its hard finding the slots.
Brutal, my meta is all board wipes didn't see it here so figured i'd shout out, its pretty decent. Watch out for those graveyard exiles too, my group is hard on that. Elixir of Immortality It also helps me not deck-out late-game which is a real issue with my deck, draws too hard for its own good.
Yes! No one uses/knows about this card! 1 equip, +3 damage, and you get a free creature back! You can use tokens from Nahiri, the Lithomancer to get a free Stoneforge Mystic or run an Elspeth, Knight-Errant for Puresteel Paladin. There are even lands that create tokens, there are embalm creatures that make tokens from the graveyard Trueheart Duelist.
I try not to proc the sword with Sram since he has to go to the GY, but there are ways around that, and I do have a nice chain set up with sram -> Restoration Specialist -> Stoneforge Mystic if needed. I know you don't run any enchantments, but atleast a few wont hurt. Plus Gryff's Boon comes back from the graveyard, so its perfect to counter your local mill strats.

Ooh, Cats. I helped build a tribal cat deck with my brother, but in Naya colors (partly for Wild Nacatl). At least in Selesnya colors, though, you still have a lot of cat-tastic options.
- Loam Lion comes down fast as a 2/3 with a Temple Garden in play, but, if you go with Loam Lion, you need four Temple Gardens. I would run more Temple Gardens in lieu of the Sunpetal Groves, though (or even Canopy Vista!), because having both of the land types is somewhat useful here.
- More Qasali Ambushers are a good option if you're running more dual lands, especially since they trade with/kill a lot of fast threats and are my favorite price of all (free).
- Run more Qasali Pridemages if possible, especially with Lantern decks everywhere.
- In the sideboard, I might consider Thorn of Amethyst to deal with creature-light decks and Rest in Peace instead of the Relic of Progenitus. You can also use Angel's Grace and Dawn Charm as a possibility to deal with insta-kills (and I'd think Dawn Charm's better than Druid's Deliverance).
- While I fully approve of Stony Silence, maybe a singleton Fracturing Gust would be worthwhile to deal with affinity and lantern: it kills all artifacts for a low price, even though it costs five mana (but, against lantern, many of the super-troublesome artifacts don't require the use of activated abilities to screw things up. Alternately, you have Kataki, War's Wage, which kinda looks cat-like...
- Ajani, Caller of the Pride is a good planeswalker, but you need to be ahead to make him work. I prefer Elspeth, Knight-Errant, as she buffs your attacking kitties and makes guys to protect you if your board is empty. (Plus, she might also fit the theme...(?))

Pull a Tireless Tracker and both Courser of Kruphix. Replace with 2x Mantis Rider and 1x Boon Satyr (it turns on Rhonas and ups the Goyf count). Remove 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance and replace with either 2x Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Ajani, Caller of the Pride. Wild Nacatl needs more Plains or to be removed entirely. If you remove it, possibly even Goblin Guide should be in its place. Either that, or Flamewake Phoenix. I can't imagine that Birds of Paradise is better than Noble Hierarch. I think a 4-1 split of Noble to Birds is good. Prowling Serpopard is legit bad and should be replaced with Ancient Grudge or something.
Also, remove basic mountain because it's horrible.

Hi!I answer in order:
Return to Dust the card is strong, no doubt about it, I run it in another deck that is weaker on card advantage and desperately needs spells like this. I don't run it here for a couple of reasons. First, my take on Sram requires me to really use well my turns in a proactive way. I really want to advance my board state or my virtual position (with my hand) every turn and I usually can't afford to spend my main phase with a 4-cmc targeted removal for it's maximum value. I can't even cast it on opponents' turn when there is a must-answer-now threat since I usually tap out or almost tap out on my turn and I can only afford to leave mana open for 1-2 cmc removal such as Swords to Plowshares or Disenchant. In particular, I often play against the guy who commented above you, he runs a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician deck full of annoying threats against which I need to be faster, but he also has a stax subtheme that is completely broken with Derevi, so if he pulls out a Stasis or any winter orb effect I need to be able to answer it with 1-2 mana, otherwise I'm not seeing any mana ever again.
I like Elspeth, Knight-Errant, if I ever get one it will be tested, could take Emeria Angel's spot. Their role is to produce food for the Skullclamp or bodies that can carry a sword. Elspeth can bring more versatility though.
Thought Vessel this is a tricky one, I don't run it for a particular choice, as I don't run Reliquary Tower. In my opinion, if you ever are in a position where your hand size exceeds 7 (often happens) it means that you are in a good shape. In that situation I just keep in hand the best spells and discard the others. Actually, if I have cards like Ironclad Slayer in hand, I can discard auras and equips, because he can grab them back when I need them. In this way, even if I have a limited hand, I virtually have access to the graveyard as a second hand. Having an unlimited hand would make those effects less useful.But of course, it's just a choice, I could run it, but for now I never felt the need to keep everything in hand.
Mox Opal budget reason
Recruiter of the Guard card is strong, it's also growing in price. I could run it but I don't have any creature that I absolutely need to find and that he could target. Most of them are tutors or recursion spells on a body, so it would be a bit slow to tutor for a stoneforge mystic and than use her to tutor something else and finally cast the thing that I wanted. Most of these effects I have on creatures have enough redundancy that I don't need him too badly, I think.

Correction: list of steady 1/1 or 2/2 token creators.
Potentially too slow: Sporemound, Assemble the Legion, Dragonlair Spider, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, From Beyond, Growing Ranks, Jade Mage, Krenko, Mob Boss, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage, Goblin Assault, Goblin Rabblemaster, Mycologist, Pallid Mycoderm, Psychotrope Thallid, Rhys the Redeemed, Savage Thallid, anything that starts with Thallid- really, look it up, there are like 7, Verdant Force.
Not enough?: Attended Knight, Emeria Angel (only 30 lands!?), Entrapment Maneuver (it'll fuck up voltron's day), Fungal Sprouting, Greener Pastures (if you get more lands), Queen's Commission, Raise the Alarm, Servo Exhibition, Spectral Procession.
Just awesome: Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Hanweir Garrison, Hero of Bladehold, Martial Coup, Nomads' Assembly, Oketra the True, Sacred Mesa, Sundering Growth, Tempt with Vengeance, Tilonalli's Summoner, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Elemental Mastery (suddenly your big stuff is unblockable, too!), Living Hive, Promise of Bunrei, Secure the Wastes, Sporesower Thallid, Sporoloth Ancient, Sram's Expertise, Stonybrook Schoolmaster, Symbiotic Wurm, Wolfcaller's Howl.

I see you run a different path with Sram compared to my build. I also think that your meta pushes in in a direction that some cards are vital for your build. But did you at some point consider these options:
- Return to Dust : The 2-for-1 spell inclusion gave me a huge payout during several games.
- Elspeth, Knight-Errant : It might serve your wider approach
- Thought Vessel : I would say that this is an auto-include, as it serves us well.
- Mox Opal : Is the budget the reason you did not include this mox?
- Recruiter of the Guard : I see you mentioning it already, but you have plenty of options to target with him.

A lot of the cards can simply be replaced with cheaper alternatives. I have this land base because I already own most of it, but you may be able to find a less expensive setup.
Cards like Archangel Avacyn Flip, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Geist of Saint Traft could all be replaced with other threats like a combination of cards like Lightning Angel, Mantis Rider and Thundermaw Hellkite.
