Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

Not quite filler, but as your checking . . . Elspeth, Sun's Champion was the first card that popped for me as a final spot. Obviously the "filler" portion would then move to my binder (by a titsch).

Yes i would be open for any changes, i've tried to continue the idea of my last deck, although the loss of many cards since BFZ come out were very heavy ( Elspeth, Sun's Champion ) =(

ComradeJim270 on Which Ulamog?

Yeah Raging_Squiggle, you're not the only one who runs this commander. And if you're going to play this guy you want him out fast so the table doesn't have time to take you down.

You're right on both counts in my experience. My U/B deck doesn't have much it can do about Ulamog that early. It can slow it down, maybe... but it's very hard to handle once the commander resolves.

And hitting the rocks is brutal against these decks. I've had someone scoop to a T2 Aura Shards followed by Elspeth, Sun's Champion shortly thereafter. Against an Ulamog deck that's arguably a soft lock.

Thanks you. I think two Snapcaster Mages are good here because it provides me with a two drop threat and the flashback ability is pretty nice for counters. Great synergy with Restoration Angel mid-to-late game.

Will look at your deck and comment shortly.

I did consider Sun Titan. Currently my win-cons are Dragonlord Ojutai and Celestial Colonnade. Sun Titan could fit in there, but I would only include as a 1-of. If anything, for the same casting cost, I like Elspeth, Sun's Champion, as she can bail you out if you are flooded. As you can see I'm focusing more on the midrange aspect of UW control, particularly in surviving the early game which is critical in decks like these. The value in cards like Kitchen Finks, Snapcaster Mage, Vendilion Clique, and Wall of Omens alongside the synergy with Restoration Angel is fantastic once it gets going.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a fascinating option, and really fits with the Sun Titan versions of UW control. Here, I feel like I'm doing some different things, and don't want to be caught trying to do too much, especially considering I may try to include Vedalken Shackles. Although, how sweet would it be to resurrect a Dragonlord Ojutai?

I think my main struggle with this deck is how many Wall of Omens to include. Right now the 4-of is cool, as a cantrip and decent body for blocking...though I can't help to think about other, perhaps more effective, things I could be doing like including Vedalken Shackles, Sphinx's Revelation or something else. Thoughts?

I played a B/W Tokens deck before BFZ and now i am trying to put together a new deck, although the loss of cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are pretty significant and i would like some feedback on this new deck B/W Tokens (Help needed) i am creating and if it would be good for standard.

Ok, that comes out to $6.43. I'd be interested in trading for your Elspeth, Sun's Champion if it's the duel decks printing.

My wife, over the course of the Theros prerelease, pulled 6 Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

Safe to say she will be opening at least half of the packs.
