Elspeth Tirel Discussion

mr_funk on Sooooo Many Tokens!!!

2 days ago

i think you could benefit from an upgraded land spread, fetch-shocks like Windswept Heath, Temple Garden, Overgrown Tomb, Godless Shrine, other fetch lands that have either white or green.

fast lands like Razorverge Thicket, Concealed Courtyard, and Blooming Marsh are options as well, although if you are bent on using Elspeth Tirel, the life loss from the fetches and shocks would be Negated pretty quickly.

wonderful utility land option is Gavony Township, especially if you are generating extra mana with Cryptolith Rite (which isnt in the 60 even though its mentioned in the description?).

maybe even Khalni Garden???

Mycoloth is just begging to get blown out by removal that is cheap and instant speed in modern. the "eggs in one basket" scenario isnt the best plan unless you're bogles, or have a way to protect him.

no one drops? no removal?

i built a similar list a while back. never actually put it together or playtested, but you are welcome to use what you want out of it:

You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

So with any white deck, there's a package I always recommend:
Stoneforge Mystic
Sword of Feast and Famine (Really all the swords, minus UG/WR)
Batterskull
Umezawa's Jitte
Blade of Selves (super synergy with your ETB effects)

The mediocre token generators are likely my first place to look for cuts. I would reconsider:
Advent of the Wurm
Storm Herd
Ajani Goldmane
Elspeth Tirel
The new Ajani, Ajani Unyielding might be more what you're in the market for here.

I think the rest is on the right track for sure. Sylvan Library is another super powerful on color effect you could take advantage of. Craterhoof Behemoth and Avenger of Zendikar as well.

I haven't personally played many 1 mana dorks in my decks, so I don't have the most informed opinion here, but they might be more of a liability, given how often board sweepers come down in EDH.

Green Sun's Zenith, Dryad Arbor, and Chord of Calling all add another level of versatility to a deck like this.

Fetches are always good, and if you do end up including more sac lands, cards like Titania, Protector of Argoth, Lotus Cobra, and Tireless Tracker become awesome value engines. With your basic-heavy manabase right now though, they may not be at their best. An easy budget add might be Krosan Verge. It manafixes, sacs, and ramps.

I like where you're going with this, let me know what you think.

Thanks Teddyjunior11 and Trtl!!

I do like Elspeth Tirel because of the +2 lifegain factor as well as the -2 for tokens. It's why I chose it.

But I do see how Elspeth, Sun's Champion could also work with the +1 and 3 tokens. However it's cmc is also more to bring out.

I counter Teddyjunior11's suggestion with my own!

...Oh, right, the recommendation. Why, none other than Elspeth Tirel! (In other words, Tirel is better because it helps your strategy better)

LeaPlath I am torn between the two. Elspeth Tirel and Sorin, Solemn Visitor -both are fantastic for my deck... and incredibly similar. Sorin is cheaper and has an arguably better +1 but has 2 inferior minus abilities. Meanwhile, Elspeth Tirel also has the healing capability I am looking for and has 2 very relevant minus abilities; but, she is 5 mana and boltable if I use her minus abilities within the first 2 turns of being casted...Sorin on the other hand will basicly sit there and be an aggro sponge and do nothing but pump my creatures... I guess i'll put him back in because fuck Lightning Bolt xD.
