Etchings of the Chosen Discussion

Joe_Ken_ on Najeela and the war bound

Patryn Pretty good, I think of the three games I’ve played with it I haven’t had a single loss yet. I think I may swap a few of the creatures for some other cards like Etchings of the Chosen and maybe look into having Flusterstorm or Pyroblast in the deck instead of the sideboard.

I get what you are trying to do but I feel non changling tribal cards don’t really play well with each other. Ex: Frogtosser Banneret and Bosk Banneret Maybe changling as a base and one or two splash tribes. Like rebels and silvers or zombie and goblins.

this is a lot of cards, and more are sure to come out that I want to include. I'm considering making a modern cube in addition to my legacy cube, or maybe expanding the cube altogether. I really don't want to go to 720, and honestly I would prefer 360 with a regular rotation of cards, but I don't play the cube often enough to justify that so for now it sticks to 720.

Last_Laugh: Together Forever does seem interesting! It's one of those cards that slinks under the radar in a "less played" set like Battlebond. I may have to check it out, for now I want to see how Etchings of the Chosen works out. SO far it has done very well in the few matches it has come up.

I am super conscious of the need to improve my card draw, that said I think I'm going to have to respectfully disagree on the power of one-time draw. One-time draw is super consistent and actually does stuff the turn you throw it unlike cards like Dark Prophecy . Speaking of Dark Prophecy , I tried running Skullclamp at one point ant my deck ran into two issues with it. First, my vampires are usually way to strong to just die to Skullclamp . My tokens are usually 2/2's at the minimum I'd say 90% of games. Tied to that, I don't a sufficient number of sacrifice outlets to fuel cards like Skullclamp and Dark Prophecy . If anything I'm likely to add cards like Night's Whisper or Syphon Mind as they give you instantaneous draw and are more color friendly. I also already run Herald's Horn , great card and I'm glad I bought a precon because of that price tag on an uncommon!

Funny story about Reconnaissance , a friend of mine at my LGS showed it to me, and I loved it! Picked it up for a couple bucks and I worked it in pretty early in the deck's life cycle. It puts up great results every time it comes out!

What does everyone think for potential includes from Modern Horizons? I cut in Cordial Vampire , Silent Clearing , Talisman of Hierarchy , Etchings of the Chosen and Kaya's Guile (Listed in rank order)

My favorite part of Cordial Vampire is he combos with massacre girl the same way Elenda does, if he is on the field when massacre girl etb all 2/2 or high vampires you control will survive!

TheSlowestBro on Breya, Artifact Shaper Synergies

Thanks man! I definitely get your points, in fact I think my list is too low on the counter magic. I definitely think I should add in at least Dovin's Veto , maybe also Stoic Rebuttal and Countersquall like you have. Also Despark is a smart inclusion as well. The eternal problem is what to cut heh.

The Mirrodin Besieged card is pretty cool, but it might be too slow. On that note I noticed you are running Efficient Construction , I think cards that flicker offer more versatility but also fill a similar role producing tokens, thats why I would run Conjurer's Closet over it for instance. So my eyes are more on Soulherder to be honest since it also curves super nice into Breya, oh and also Etchings of the Chosen might be kinda cool as a thopter anthem that also protects her.

No data for this card yet.
