Emeria, The Sky Ruin Discussion

I think you have too many high CMC cards, I think I would replace 2 x Baneslayer Angel by 2 x Luminarch Ascension.

Maybe you need some removals like Oblivion Ring.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Thorn of Amethyst target you too and you have 16 non-creature spells. I would probably remove 2 x Thorn of Amethyst and 2 x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. I would replace them with 4 x Chancellor of the Annex.

I love Eidolon of Rhetoric and Spirit of the Labyrinth, more !

Selfless Spirit could protect your creatures, you need to protect them.

Thraben Inspector and/or Mind Stone to draw in opponent's turn.

I also really like cards like Norn's Annex, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Leonin Arbiter or Cavern of Souls for this kind of decks.

Sorry for the late reply t3hdarkness. I totally love the suggestions! I will definitely need to change out some cards, like Reciprocate, Lich's Mirror, Jester's Cap and Shared Triumph. Thanks for the land suggestions too! I didn't really have a good place to start until you suggested Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Buried Ruin.

You might want to add Urza's Tower. That is if you want your tron lands to be online. Also, Vesuva Great land. Top notch. Also, consider Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

Match Report 01/02/2017

Overall Record

Games 4 - 5

Matches 2 - 2

It didn't go well but this was a small sample size. One thing I need to remember is Emeria, The Sky Ruin can bring back any card not just one drops.

Match 1 - Win - Merfolk

This was a Green-Blue version with additional cards from Ixalan. I won pretty easy with the extra life from Martyr and the Wrath of Gods. I had one each game, and let him overextend himself and then cleared the board.

Match 2 - Loss - Abzan

AHHH. These games were grindy and super slow. I was all setup to go eternal Martyr and then he plays a maindeck Scavenging Ooze. I found a Path to Exile but Daniel found a second Scavenging Ooze and then I was done. In the second game we went to time. I went from 20 life to 44 and back down to 24 and just couldn't win through 8 Lingering Souls chump blockers. I didn't find the Declaration in Stone

Match 3 - Loss - Blue Tron

In game one I didn't have any mana and Sundering Titan destroyed all my lands. One when it came in to the battlefield, one when I exiled it with Banishing Light and then another land on the next turn when he used Repeal. The second game I had more lands and was destroying his Tron pieces but none of my threats could stick on the field with his counter spells.

Match 4 - Win - UW Prowess

Wrath of God wins this match. When I can gain big chunks of life and clear his creatures I wasn't loosing.


There were many more people there this week. Cody and Slivers came back. I bunch of people from the community college. I was fun to have such a diverse pool of decks.

Flagstones of Trokair isn't better than a Plains:

Why would I use a nonbasic land that doesn't do anything?

Also, Mutavault and Emeria, The Sky Ruin would be great additions.

Hey Dr.Crust, I like this build! I like the use of flagbearer-type cards to keep the hate away from Gisela.

A few recommendations I have is that I'm confused about a couple of card choices. If this is a voltron deck, what are Porcelain Legionnaire or Lantern Kami doing to help you achieve that goal? I would recommend increasing the amount of card draw in the deck by using artifacts like Staff of Nin, Tamiyo's Journal and the newly-spoiled Immortal Sun from RIX. It may increase your curve but at 3.1 you may have some room to spare depending on your meta. If aggro is a problem, Ghostly Prison is a great card and I can see has been mentioned before.

In my Bruna deck, I'm able to keep a lot of cards in my hand by spending a lot of my mana on recurring stuff from the graveyard to get more value out of those cards. That's the goal of that deck so I run cards like Emeria Shepherd, Sun Titan and Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

Also, I highly recommend Endless Horizons it's such an excellent enchantment and helps you make sure you always get your land drops.

Happy deck building!
