JuQ on Warrior at heart

11 months ago

You definitely need more card draw Elemental Bond, Mouth / Feed, Skullclamp, Deathreap Ritual and Culling Dais would be my card engines of choice. With eight of them in the deck you should be able to have one most of the time.

Fervent Charge is a card I love but I never get to find a good deck to include, this could be that one. super nice specially with your Aggravated Assault.

I would remove Titanic Ultimatum in favor of Beastmaster Ascension. The ultimatum is really espectacular and the lifelink is amazing, but the static +5/+5 for just three mana is insane.

Some protection against board wipes to chose among Heroic Intervention, Boros Charm, Make a Stand, Ready / Willing, Eerie Interlude.

Utility on warriors: Banewhip Punisher, Den Protector, Hidden Dragonslayer Elvish Skysweeper, Viridian Zealot, Manic Vandal, Qasali Slingers, Hammerheim Deadeye.

ZendikariWol on Warrior at heart

Good cuts include Elvish Skysweeper, unless you have plenty of fliers in your meta. Disowned Ancestor: fine early game, and it would be hella good if outlast wasn't a sorcery, but alas. Graveblade Marauder is okay but it's generally lackluster (relies on your dudes dying). Herald of Dromoka and Dragonscale General cancel each other out. Petrified Wood-Kin is risky and Matsu-Tribe Sniper is just sorta lame. Spirit Loop really doesn't fit the theme of the deck.

Sorry I have to be salty here, just wanted to suggest some cuts. Also maybe drop the banners for signets (eg Boros Signet).

Looks pretty good! A few recommendations: First off, Elvish Skysweeper seems a bit too expensive for what it does, I'd recommend replacing it with a card like Lignify or Epic Confrontation. Also, I'd take out 2-3 of your forests and put in a few more non creature spells, probably some more single target removal like Naturalize, Unravel the Aether, or other cards like it. Otherwise, great deck! Can't wait to play against it

Caller of the Claw, Elvish Skysweeper, Elvish Vanguard, Scytheclaw can all come out of this list, but i dont think this list is up to date is it?

I like Altar of Dementia, as it and karmic + reveillark is gg. Blasting Station is the same, but i do feel it is underwhelming otherwise, that's going out. Elvish Skysweeper- well, i thought that was a 3 when I first saw it. Flyers aren't much of a problem, so goodbye. I completetly forgot about rites, have one around here somewhere....

Fallen Angel was my number one pick to get rid of. So goodbye. Same with Fleshwrither- I just always want to use future sight cards cuz they look cool. I like Ashen Rider the same reason I like Spine of Ish Sah in my Daretti- pricy, yes, but it's a recurrable Vindicate. Simply the best removal around. Plus rider is 2 Exiling Vindicates every turn. I'll think about that one.

And Phyrexian Plaguelord. It's great removal, but I think the sac isn't effective or big enough, so ya you've convinced me there. I usually only sac one thing a turn.

As always, thanks for the help!

Ok, so 20 sac outlets is a lot.

Altar of Dementia is a bit underwhelming since you don't do any other mill yourself, you are basically hoping your opponents deck themselves.

Blasting Station only reliably works with Evangel of Heliod (I could be overlooking/missing a combo), but it doesn't seem all to impressive.

Phyrexian Plaguelord has great options, but with a CMC of 5, he isn't the best to have. I would pick Sadistic Hypnotist over it.

At 5 CMC a sac, Elvish Skysweeper seems pricey at best. However, if flying is a problem, go for it, but its not going to stop an Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and definitely not a Zur the Enchanter.

Fallen Angel is really cool to use, but falls short when compared to Fallen Ideal, which not only returns to your hand (just self sac if the enchant is gonna be destroyed), but also allows you to put the sac outlet on anything, including Karador.

I would actually replace Carnage Altar with Vampiric Rites, the comparison in value is crazy.

As far as tutors go, Fleshwrither literally grabs 1 of 4 creatures. Jarad, Meren, Solemn, or Flesh-Eater Imp. Sure, you can recast him, but paying 7 mana for a tutor like that when you could just drop Entomb to cast something or Jarad's Orders for one in 'yard and one in hand just look a lot better.

Ashen Rider is a bit pricey, but it has uses (especially with Soldevi Adnate) but if you don't have more ways to get him out easy, is he worth the CMC of 8?

I hope this helps with some insight! I have been a big fan of yours and you are always supportive of my decks! Good luck cutting! If you need more cuts, I'll be close.

Some Input:

To really shine with Ezuri you need more mana dorks, untap outlets and - simply - more Elves.

Some of the Elfball/mono-mana symbol g Staples i miss here:

And if you can afford it: Craterhoof Behemoth.

If you're looking for more - non-infinite - Ezuri, Renegade Leader inspiration, check my cutthroat streamlined deck list below:

I've been playing for over ten years, and I think you threw in the spiders for the reach aspect, but why not drop the spiders, go tribal elf(amazing and powerful tribe) and for your flying problem throw in something like Gravity Well, or if you do go with elves, then you could throw in Elvish Skysweeper because they produce enough tokens for him to be a viable option. Look into tribal Elf, they really are amazing.
