DreadKhan on Healing deck

6 months ago

I feel like even the (very, very) humble Healing Salve is almost always way better than alabaster potion, but I'm not certain either is worthy of inclusion. If you are interested in damage prevention, I used to use Orim, Samite Healer as a budget EDH Commander, and she did some funny stuff for sure, be it blocking big creatures or helping negate slow damage sources entirely. Hard to win with her, but she was fun.

I feel like you could also consider Chalice of Life  Flip, in case you can't get the Sovereign out, it can be a back up win condition that is direct damage.

I think Shield Wall could be booted too, I wonder if you couldn't make Mobilization useful, as a mana sink that can delay the opponent with chumps, or push for the win in some situations I guess.

In terms of general problem solving good old Oblivion Ring is a nasty customer, being able to remove all kinds of annoyances preventing you from winning the game. Exile might be good fun, and theoretically, you might toss in up to 4 Swords to Plowshares as you don't care at all most of the time what your opponent's life is, just yours, and in a pinch, you can use swords on your own biggie to get your life total high enough to win.

Looks like a fun deck!

Great deck!

I think Holy Light would be a great inclusion to the deck, as White has very few ways of dealing with masses of tokens efficiently. This card lets you do that without affecting your own smaller creatures.

You have Suture Priest twice in your list, under board control and Life Gain.

Survival Cache seems like a great card for your deck. You'll most likely be the player with the most life anyways, and this gives you two life gain triggers and will most likely draw you two cards.

I'm not sure how good something like Revitalize / Healing Hands / Renewed Faith would be, but getting a lifegain trigger and a card seems like a decent way to filter through your deck.

Children of Korlis could be a good "Fog" effect for you.

Exile seems like a good fit for removal in your deck.

Seems a shame to pass up on Martyr of Sands . It only gets you one trigger, but it's still a lot of life, which is worth something.

Seraph of Dawn is an absolute beast in this format. the big butt means it survives a lot of removal and combat, and putting equipment on it is amazing.

Along the same lines, Student of Ojutai really dishes out the lifegain for you on a great body, especially considering how few creatures you're playing.

I feel like most of your lifelink creatures are not really worth playing. They're going to be easily blocked and killed in most situations and not net you much of an advantage. I'd say only the ones that gain your some sort of card advantage are really worth playing. I could be wrong about Healer's Hawk, though.

Lastly, you have plenty of ways to protect your commander, but I would just like to suggest Angelic Renewal . You can play this before your commander and not have to hold mana up all the time for it. Same goes for Benevolent Bodyguard . This lets you play a much tighter, more efficient game plan.

No problem ZwiebelRoyal :)

I have been tinkering a lot with the deck and know that the only BW cards that win you infinite life are the ones in the deck, Death Watch , Exile , Death's Caress , Sever Soul and Weed Strangle .

There is no pauper legal way of using infinite toughness to deal damage or any good lifegain payoffs for huge lifegain in one shot.

Drawing into the combo and disruption is a work in progress mainly hurt by how bad white is at drawing and the lack of counterspells.

The life combo is also possible in WG and damage combos exist in WR and WB.

Some white bordered card that come to my mind are: -Control Magic -Dregs of Sorrow -Exile -Kismet -Memory Lapse -Opportunity -Power Sink -Purify -Reprisal -Strip Mine ***

Anyway, it depends on what you want from your deck! But strip mine is a white bordered must have. +1 for the nostalgia

Username_Elemental on Wait, I can Attack?

1 year ago

Definitely forgot that some of those cards existed, namely Ghostly Prison, Chained to the Rocks, and pretty much all the mana rocks. I'll probably cut Exile for one of them but I need to actually get and test the deck to see whats underperfoming before I add anything else.

I think I should be good on boardwipes as the damage dealing ones gain me life with FSSS (which will incidentally fuel the reservoir enough to kill most if not all of my opponents).

I skipped on most of the creature as most of them didn't affect the boardstate that much and I wanted to go with a more spellslinger style build, and only really intend to attack with the tokens from Assemble the Legion if they would kill someone.

Also lucky for me I'm only one who has any MLD in any of their decks in my group, and it's a single copy of Ruination in my Norin deck.

I originally ran Path to Exile, but swapped it out for Exile because I liked its flavor better.

I would rather choose Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares instead of Exile

You should consider Emerge Unscathed, it's very good and has an Angel in the artwork.
Maybe some Mind Stone for ramping.Exile could be nice as well.
