Emerge Unscathed Discussion

Funkydiscogod on Keywords out the wazoo

Enchantment removal is less common than creature removal, but Odric can benefit your creatures the turn he enters the battlefield. There's a case to be made for either one.

Random thought, but Emerge Unscathed's rebound has a nice synergy with Concerted Effort if you stack the triggers so the rebound resolves first. So, if you go that way with the deck, I'd replace Brave the Elements.

I always wanted to make a deck like that, with Cairn Wanderer or Death-Mask Duplicant or Soulflayer.

@BlueScope: Yeah, in the case of Mother of Runes, I totally agree. That card is mad strong even with that limitation. But I will always use Stave Off over the various "knock-off" cards WotC has printed, like Gods Willing and Emerge Unscathed for exactly this reason.

I'm not surprised at all that they limit the number of cards with these sorts of effects, and I appreciate the note on Shroud, Mage's Guile looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Saint_Charles_VII Thanks for the review! Yes, indeed I should keep some protection for my creatures, but I have to ponder between Faith's Shield, Emerge Unscathed and Gods Willing.

But I'll keep in mind to add one of them.

Hey There!

I love Jeskai Delver/Prowess decks. They are definitely my favourite modern archetype. In this deck you have a lot of control type spells, so I can recommend one of two things.

The first is two build it in a more tempo/agressive fashion by dropping some permission and removal (not all of it) for spells like Emerge Unscathed and Distortion Strike. The rebound real helps trigger Prowess, and Emerge Unscathed specifically is a huge tempo card because you can cast it on an opponents turn to protect a creature, and attack with pseudo unblockable the next turn. Also adding some more Prowess creatures like Stormchaser Mage and Abbot of Keral Keep can help out, especially with all the spells you cast. His ability is almost never a wiff, and he prevents mana flood. If you plan on this route, I would recommend the following:

Take out:


The other direction you could take this deck is a Jeskai Control deck. I don't have much expertise in the area, but my recommendation would be taking out a lot of the aggressive creatures, adding in Thing in the Ice  Flip and a lot more land, as you will want to be going a bit further late game.

If you want, feel free to check out my Jeskai Prowes list:

Jeskai Tempo Prowess (Possible Turn Three Win!)

My apologies for the long ramble, I really love the deck, and you have a +1 from me!

Cheers :)

I like your deck! It looks like you are wanting to run an Orzhov Midrange deck. If you wanted to kill them slowly over time, you would have to tailor things more towards control with even fewer creatures.

t I would recommend right now including a full pack of Tidehollow Sculler.

Some cards I think you are running that may not be that impactful: Emerge Unscathed, Blood Artist, Monastery Mentor, Despise, and Honor of the Pure. If you want to run an anthem and are relying more on your token than nontoken creatures, maybe use Intangible Virtue? Brimaz and Hero of Bladehold are already tough enough to stand on their own.

This way, Brave the Elements stays relevant because your tokens will be white (with the exception of tokens from Sorin). Only Brutal Hordechief is left out in the cold.

I would run less creatures overall, and more instants, sorceries and planeswalkers.

Try and include as many as possible of the following instants/sorceries:- Thoughtseize- Inquisition of Kozilek- Path to Exile- Lingering Souls- Dismember

And any of the following planeswalkers:- Sorin, Lord of Innistrad- Elspeth, Knight-Errant- Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Finally, there may be games where you could benefit from a discard outlet (i.e., your discard cards are no longer useful). One such card that is popular in Orzhov for this purpose is running a set of Pack Rats.

Just my 2 cents! Great deck and +1!

In my opinion, Grand Abolisher belongs in the sideboard. Occassionally, not getting interrupted is nice - at other times, it simply isn't all that relevant (not many counterspells for creatures in modern). And when the ability is irrelevant, all you have left is a bear. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben does roughly the same, but her first strike is a considerable bonus against a lot of decks. Aegis of the Gods also seem to a sideboard card - extremely useful in some games, extremely irrelevant in others.

Loyal Sentry also seems very conditional. It's good against an opponent who has no removal, and a few big beefy attackers, and sucks against opponents with Snapcaster+Lightning Bolt or piles of tokens. It's a card that doesn't really try to win. And since it's a 1/1 that lives to block, you get to trade 1-for-1 with it, conditional to non-evasive attacking creatures only. Of course you can protect it with Brave the Elements or Emerge Unscathed - which still makes it a 1-for-1.

Is there any particular reason to avoid cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim (which is great with coco), Gather the Townsfolk (Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip would be better with this, coco a bit worse), and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip? Or mutavult (I know, boring... but played a lot by tribal decks for very obvious reasons)...

And if you want to make something out of Abzan Falconer, you could bring Metallic Mimic and Gavony Township, just to make sure there's +1/+1 counters on all your creatures.
