Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

I like the use of Terminus very underused card. I would possibly split the mass removal with something else though too so it won't get hit with Meddling Mage type effect.

Maybe find room for 1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion she just wins games and protects herself

The first think i would look at is land. The land base will cripple or help you. Can go 2 or 3 color but 2 is better on a budget.

Thing in the Ice  Flip is one of my favorite control finishers. It's so low to the ground then just destroys your opponent. My favorite ones to use generally are Thing in the Ice  Flip, Myth Realized, Gideon Jura, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Dragonlord Ojutai, Geist of Saint Traft, and AEtherling(AEtherling only if on super budget)

ureht I did have Sorin, Grim Nemesis but traded it out of the 6 drop spot for Elspeth, Sun's Champion. I placed Sorin, Solemn Visitor mostly to get to the ultimate sacking a creature.

Alright! So some suggestions in card's I have for you. Although I dont run a human Tribal selesnya deck, My karametra deck is pretty damn good and is my 'dont piss me off or i'll whip this deck out and kick your ass to Uranus' deck. LOL So since humans are REALLY small bodies Dusk // Dawn is a 100% auto include! Knight of the Reliquary is great and since we're in white You'll want to grab a Mistveil Plains and an Emeria, The Sky Ruin and/or Gavony Township it searches for ANY land, can be great if you have a Yavimaya Hollow. Austere Command EVERY white deck should have this, period. It deals with anything and everything! since you don't have a whole lot of instants/sorceries, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is great here, although one mana does not seem like a lot. it makes the difference between a turn 4 Damnation and a turn 5 Damnation which will give you more value from you're creatures. I think Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip would be great here his planeswalker ability basically gives you a permanent creature you want to survive basically anything! Also NO human deck is a human deck without their protector Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Elspeth, Sun's Champion this elspeth is great! for six mana to remove problem creatures is not bad! the other 2 elspeths are also just as good, and even if they die, it's worth the value! And instead of some of your anthem effects on creatures, I've found that anthems on enchantments/artifacts last longer and provide more support Spear of Heliod is phenomenal, it's kinda pillow-forty because you can kill their creature and gives an anthem all for 3 (6 if you use it's ability). its a great investment! Basically you really want to out-value your opponent! Also another good edition would be Homeward Path since you're having issue's with that darn pirate! Also, Tamiyo's Journal is actually REALLY underrated, I suggest you at least try it and you'll see how much work it really does!

Ayli is a ton of un to play. Sword of the Animist I find to be one of the best ramp cards you can run as you have a cheap commander that also has deathtouch she can grab you 2-3 lands early with ease. Tithe is also some good early ramp if interested.

Slagwurm Armor is nice to give you more life from your sacrifices.

I don't run much targeted removal but rather more board wipes as Ayli takes care of the targeted removal fine I find.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion I love in here as she can board wipe the big creatures if you need it or give you 3 sacrificial lambs.

Storm Herd and White Sun's Zenith give you a ton of tokens and that can transform into a lot of life, win con, or sacrifice fodder.

You can look over my deck if you like for other ideas Ayli.

elgosu1337 thanks for the reply and Retraction Helix is realy interesting and I'll test it for sure!

Paradox Engine was in for some time but it went against Natural Affinity and Sylvan Awakening, it dont work so well with 6 signet out of 10 total rocks and only 10 dorks, I love it and testad for a very long time but found it suboptimal in the end.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion with Intruder Alarm and Earthcraft or Cryptolith Rite do crazy things so I'll keep it. The other one and niblis can easily be cut as you say for Metallurgic Summonings (very good, I knew it but I had not thought about it) and for.....boh, my meta is too agressive for Concordant Crossroads, Laboratory Maniac have a lifespan of 4-5 seconds, so I think to give Treasure Cruise a second chance.

Thanks a lot!

Catpocolypse on Quick...Kill The Hippo!!

I agree with Servbot40. I was playing against this deck with some friends and I was the one that got super ahead using my tokens deck Nerd Post-Prom. I got a couple of doubling enchantments out with Elspeth, Sun's Champion and was soon creating 12 1/1 soldier tokens every turn. Pair this with Jazal Goldmane and I could swing at everyone for lethal damage to each player, all of which had gained a fair amount of life.

With your mana base, add in at least one Godless Shrine to fetch up.

With boardwipes, you should be using plainswalkers as your win con. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is amazing, but if you're looking for a cheaper one, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar could work as well. If the addition of a shock land gets you to dangerous life totals, try Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. I've seen one or two Heart of Kiran being run alongside plainswalkers as well

I would get rid of one Search for Azcanta  Flip because more than one is a dead draw

hope this helps! +1
