Emeria, The Sky Ruin Discussion

DeepbloodEclipse on If John Snow was a Female

Hey, good to see another Soldier and Boros user.

Thing is, Hero of Bladehold basically is a White Hanweir Garrison, the only other alternative I can think of is Precinct Captain. If you were to turn this mono white, you would greatly benefit from Emeria, The Sky Ruin in combination with Flagstones of Trokair. What you really should take a look at is Ballyrush Banneret, you wont always get Preeminent Captain on the Field, but lowering the cost of all your soldiers is a tremendous boon. If the Human part of your creatures isn't too important, you can replace your one drop for Cenn's Tactician, Boros Elite or Elite Vanguard, all very capable 1CMC Soldiers.

Take a look at my White Soldier Weenies and Boros Tactics for soldier and other cards in theme that could possibly benefit you greatly.

And finally, because you have white..which I personally consider to be the most flexible color out of them all, you can get Circle of Protection: Black, Circle of Protection: Green, Circle of Protection: Red to shut down just about any aggro heavy deck.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin is extremely situational in this deck as you only have 7 plains. Add cards like Canopy Vista and Godless Shrine which have the plains tag and generate multiple colors.

Another creature you can include is Pride Guardian. I don't know what you would want to sub out for a set of those, but I love Pride Guardian because of how efficient of a defender it is and the life gain involved. It's a good early game drop and has caused a few of my mtg friends some amount of frustration. XD

A land I'm getting for my own life-gain deck is Emeria, The Sky Ruin. It's helpful to have if your opponent manages to send both of your Felidar Sovereign to the graveyard (which is what I've experienced almost every time I've sideboard Felidar into my life-gain deck). I assume you're trying to win via Felidar, so it'd be good to have some sort of back up plan.

Also instances that protect your creatures like Brave the Elements, Path to Exile, and Devouring Light are super helpful to have in hand. Maybe you can find room to add some?

I like your deck! +1

@celsha While yes Martial Law doesn't do much in the deck, Grafdigger's Cage will result in a disruption to 5 other cards in the deck (Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Field of Souls, Auramancer, Graceful Reprieve, and Defy Death) that is already seen in Rest in Peace, Samurai of the Pale Curtain, and Relic of Progenitus.

Im a fan of Ondu Clericfor lifegain and maybe 2XEmeria, The Sky Ruin to help regain some momentum after a board wipe?

Buddy, I love enchants, so there go my suggestions: Story Circle - It will help you avoid a bounce, or any sh** than can target some creature or even you. I think is perfect for you. Angelic Destiny, it returns to your hand, so if you cast again, could combo with your deck. Maybe you don't agree with this last, but for sure still a good option. Retether and Winds of Rath, are more for side and fun. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a good choice for long battles and to give a second chance to any creature. Sigil of the Empty Throne is cool, maybe you would like, maybe not, I just remembered and put it here, hehe. Spectra Ward is a very nice option too, more end game and Sage's Reverie helps you to draw more and more. I know from that suggestions, few are really good for you, but here they are. +1

Thanks for taking a look Daedalus19876 I'll be making a few changes based on your suggestions, first is Mother of Runes is now in the deck, originally I misunderstood what she did but she has now earned a spot.

Also Scroll Rack I didn't really know how to use it properly (I'd always put something on top that I wanted and accidentally tutored and shuffled it away and other various misplays) but after reading through your primer it's an auto-include for the scroll rack + land tax combo.

Most mana doublers I've tried but found they slowed me down in the past, this deck has evolved so much however so maybe Caged Sun might help. Extraplanar Lens in my meta isn't run because it's a huge target (mainly for personal reasons, I'll just say when any of my friends play it I destroyed it so they'd also be down a land and now they seek revenge.) Had to cut it from my colorless wastes deck for that reason lol.

I've considered Scourglass but it's just a meta-call, my combo friend always keeps a tutor in hand and I don't think Scourglass would make it around the table.

As for the lands I've just been testing I change between 34 to 37 lands all the time since the land base is one of my biggest weakness when deck building.

I cut Haunted Cloak and am thinking about cutting Helm of Kaldra. I only keep the helm for the off chance I have the other two pieces (or Stonehewer Giant since I'll search for both those pieces anyway) and will tutor it for an indestructible 9/9 that can't be Gilded Drake'd or Toxic Deluge'd but on it's own it's kind of a dead card. What do you think?

Duelist's Heritage and Silverblade Paladin would love a spot, I'm just bad at making cuts. I can think of one card I could cut but I don't know which to add both Silverblade Paladin can beat down on his own but if I don't have another creature he's a 2/2 and is more susceptible to removal but can be recurred with both Emeria, The Sky Ruin AND Sun Titan. Duelist's Heritage seems like the stronger of the two can be tutored with Enlightened Tutor and if I understand it correctly I can give an opponents creature double strike if they hit an opponent?? Only down side I can think of is Sword of War and Peace and Etched Champion.

Again thank you for the kind words and suggestions, I previously skimmed through your primer when building this but finally fully read it ;)
