Elspeth Tirel Discussion

Cards like Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty seem like they should be making any nonblue control list since there will be some things you just can't reasonably deal with. Avoid Fate is nice against a meta filled with Assassins Trophy.

I'm also surprised at the choice of no walkers. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Elspeth Tirel, and Ajani Vengeant are all good board stallers that turn into game winners if left to their own devices.

Adanto Vanguard? Radiant Destiny? I would take out Auriok Steelshaper because you have no Equipment. On the same note, I would also take out Auriok Sunchaser, Auriok Edgewright, Auriok Glaivemaster and Auriok Bladewarden. You may also want either Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth Tirel or Elspeth, Knight-Errant depending on your budget.

Poly_raptor on Populate is fun... Right?

Why not some Serra Ascendant?

And could you please me explain what are your win cons? Only Crested Sunmare? (Ajani Goldmane's ultimate only creates an easily destructible or blockable creature, so for me it isn't a win con)

You have no removals, no counters and no draw cards spells, meaning you just play on the draw. In my personal opinion you are underestimating too much your opponent's deck.

Cards you could consider are: Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring, Auriok Champion, Archangel of Thune, Ranger of Eos, Sun Titan, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Spectral Procession, Martyr of Sands, Baneslayer Angel, Honor of the Pure, Chalice of Life  Flip, Windbrisk Heights

Hi! As soon as you play tokens Intangible Virtue is a must. I would also recommend to concentrate on token generators: Elspeth, Sun's Champion,Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Precinct Captain, Attended Knight etc. Akroma, Angel of Wrath is a nice finisher. By the way Akroma's Memorial improves your creatures too. And you need something to boost your Soldier tokens, for example: Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Vanquisher's Banner, Obelisk of Urd. Good luck in brewing!

Cereal_Killer on Elesh's Angels

So, basically, you need to survive till you can cast an angel or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. And that's why you have added Ixalan's Binding, Luminous Bonds and Pacifism, right? In my opinion there is a better choice than the last two cards: Path to Exile.

Then, why don't you add more Cavern of Souls so you can find them easily? Same thing for Avacyn's Pilgrim and Birds of Paradise, since they help you having mana and you could also use them as blockers (are you scare and opponent would kill them? Well, better them than the angels. Or just use Sakura-Tribe Elder). If you want to spend money on it also Noble Hierarch could be a suggestion

You have Anointed Procession and Doubling Season. Could be an idea to add some token generator (Raise the Alarm, Timely Reinforcements) or some planeswalkers (Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Sun's Champion) to protect yourself for the first turns or make a big army in late game?

And, in my opinion, you could add Windswept Heath removing some basic lands. Fetches are always a good idea for me

Last thing, I understand Serum Powder is a really good card cause it lets you take a mulligan drawing 7 cards instead of 6, but I'm not sure about it's utility in the deck

shalai edh update number 2:

out :: 21

creature:

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Flickerwisp

Glimmerpoint Stag

Azusa, Lost but Seeking is very expensive. I am very aware she is awesome, so I've added her to a maybeboard if I decide I want to further upgrade this deck. Flickerwisp and Glimmerpoint Stag are removed because I am largely removing flicker effects because the strat is not powerful enough in this deck.

planeswalker:

Karn, Scion of Urza

Elspeth Tirel

Elspeth, Knight-Errant

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Ajani Unyielding

Originally I wanted to take advantage of Shalai, Voice of Plenty's hexproof for planeswalkers, but I didn't make great picks on planeswalkers, and ultimately Karn, Scion of Urza, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion were really the only ones worth it. I can't reasonably afford Karn for this deck, so he has been moved to the maybeboard.

instant:

Liberate

Flicker effects have largely been removed.

sorcery:

Flicker

Fumigate

Sudden Disappearance

Flicker effects have largely been removed. In this case being sorcery speed makes them less valuable, because they cannot be used for avoidance. Fumigate is removed in order to make way for better mass removal.

enchantment:

Privileged Position

It's just too expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty does the same thing, and I can just cast her from the command zone.

artifact:

Coalition Relic

Darksteel Ingot

These are less valuable in a deck that is only 2 colors.

land:

Veldt

Vec Townships

Tranquil Garden

Riftstone Portal

Windbrisk Heights

Secluded Steppe

The first 4 of these are just bad, and the last 2 are being removed to make way for more plains.

in :: 21

creature:

Serra Ascendant

Birds of Paradise

Midnight Guard

Birds is great mana ramp. Serra Ascendant exists to be a win con. Midnight Guard is in as one piece of an unlimited token combo.

instant:

Condemn

Powerful spot removal that puts the card where the player can't get it.

sorcery:

Krosan Grip

Rout

Oust

Krosan Grip is in as artifact/enchantment hate. Rout replaces Fumigate. Oust is spot removal that avoids the graveyard.

enchantment:

Flickerform

Shield of the Oversoul

Presence of Gond

Flickerform is in for avoidance on key creatures. Presence of Gond is the second part of the infinite token combo, and Shield of the Oversoul is in because it looks fun.

artifact:

Relic of Progenitus

Urza's Incubator

Elixir of Immortality

Mind's Eye

Relic of Progenitus is in as graveyard hate. Urza's Incubator is in for cost reduction. Elixir of Immortality is in for mill protection, and Mind's Eye is in for draw.

land:

Path of Ancestry

Reliquary Tower

Homeward Path

Emeria, The Sky Ruin

3 Plains

Path of Ancestry is good for tribal. Reliquary Tower gives me no max hand size. Homeward Path protects me from effects that take my creatures. Emeria, The Sky Ruin lets me cheat back in dead creatures, and the Plains are added to support Emeria.

Cards for later

expensive, but maybe at some point:

Teferi's Protection

Karn, Scion of Urza

Vedalken Orrery

Sublime Archangel

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Qasali Pridemage

maybeboard:

Debt of Loyalty

Reconnaissance

Land

out:

Horizon Canopy

Creatures

out:

Archangel of Tithes
