Expedition Envoy Discussion

Smileycorp on Gideon Intro Deck Upgraded

12 hours ago

I would replace Stone Quarry with Needle Spires and replace Trial of Zeal with Abrade.

I also think Thraben Inspector and Expedition Envoy are worth trying to fit in, maybe by cutting a land or two. Gideon is only 5 mana, so 22-3 lands should be enough.

But ultimately, just running more Gideons is also a good choice.

sylvannos on Strictly better list

5 days ago

Lightning Bolt is definitely strictly better than Shock or Lightning Strike, but Lightning Strike isn't strictly better than Shock. It does 1 more damage but costs more.

It's also worth noting that some abilities don't make something strictly better or worse, just kind of different. Shroud, infect, and phasing come to mind. Each abilities have pros and cons, so whether or not something is strictly better/worse will depend on the deck they're used in or the meta.

For example, Grizzly Bears isn't strictly worse than Humble Budoka in a deck that can target its own creatures. In a deck that's 56 Forests and 4 2/2 creatures, Humble Budoka is likely going to be better.

Card subtypes and colors are another thing to keep in mind. While we joke in here about arcane, sometimes that matters. Expedition Envoy could be considered strictly better than Savannah Lions simply because it's a human ally.

This is all kind of moot, however. MtG Salvation's Wiki has a list of each card in each set that's strictly better, a reprint, or a functional reprint (the link I posted is for Avacyn Restored).

I wouldn't try to go through and list each card individually because you're bound to miss some. I think you'd have an easier time with this if you went through the wiki for each set and recorded each instance. What the wiki doesn't have is a way to sort or search for cards that are strictly better. Compiling a list where people can use ctrl + f would be most appreciated.

Om3gaOm3n on U/W Control (First Place Gameday HoD)

Upvote just for the simple fact that you made a very useable UW control deck WITHOUT Gearhulk. The only thing I might suggest is a possible turn 1 creature (for aggro) Thraben Inspector just an idea for the added card draw or Expedition Envoy for the 2 power. I'm more of a creature based player which is why I suggested it. I think I'll invest in a deck like this. :)

SynergyBuild on Knights of the Round

3 weeks ago

In this deck, Windbrisk Heights is a win-more, the creatures here are mostly 2+ drops, and no tokens, so the 3 attackers is a sign of a win-condition. Windbrisk Heights can be used for card advantage, if reveals/scry are in play (move the bad cards to the bottom.) but with things like Aether Vial for mana, it won't be properly used.

If this deck ran Raise the Alarm/Gather the Townsfolk, or a bunch of one-drops (Dryad Militant, Soldier of the Pantheon, Dragon Hunter, Elite Vanguard, Expedition Envoy, Kytheon, Hero of Akros, Loyal Pegasus, War Falcon, etc.) then Windbrisk Heights would work, but for now it won't.

How to fix up this deck to be Modern competitive on a budget:

--

Mainboard:

Remove an Anointer of Champions, and drop two of the Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip' then take out the Expedition Envoys, Declaration in Stones, Consul's Lieutenant, and finally the Gryff's Boons. (15 total cards)

Add 4 Soldier of the Pantheons (better than Expedition Envoy), 4 Champion of the Parishs (like Thalia's Lieutenant but is a one drop, and half the abilities), 4 Gather the Townsfolks ((For Champion of the Parish, and Thalia's Lieutenant)), and finally a Plains and 2 Windbrisk Heights (Card advantage).

--

Sideboard:

Remove all Silkwraps, Plains, Pacifism, Lantern Scout, and Eerie Interlude (11 total)

Add 4 Fragmentizes, 4 Path to Exile, 3 Rest in Peace, 2 Stony Silence

--

If you want:

Switch Always Watching (doesn't affect the Gather the Townsfolk humans, more expensive, but has vigilance) for Honor of the Pure (Cheaper, works on tokens, but doesn't have vigilance, and won't buff flipped Town Gossipmonger  Flip)

Switch Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon of the Trials, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Goldmane, Ajani Steadfast, or Gideon, Champion of Justice although I like Elspeth, all of them are great in their own right.

kellen.rice on Thalia's and friends (Naya Edition)

I like the deck, but I have a few suggestions.

First, I don't think you should splash green for rhonas. He doesn't reall for with the deck and it makes your manabase shakier. Maybe instead of rhonas you could put in oketra because that synergises more. If not just add in a low cost human like Expedition Envoy.

I also think splashing red for only honored crop-captain isn't good. It would be better if you had more red cards (Hanweir Garrison, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Shock, etc.)

Nephylos on Passive Aggressive Vampires ($20)

1 month ago

I am considering running a few Kambal, Consul of Allocation and a few other tweaks before I give up completely. He's not an ally, but he is just as effective because he punishes your opponents for doing anything besides casting creatures. If you have a Zulaport Cutthroat along with him and your opponent wants to kill something, a 6 point life swing is a heavy price to pay to kill one creature. Declaration in Stone really hoses this deck if they target your Kalastria Healers, but learning to use your Ally Encampments wisely can get around this.

I am not a big fan of Chaplain's Blessing, because even with a Cliffhaven Vampire, you're only dealing one damage to your opponent. You gain 5 life, sure, but gaining life doesn't win you the game. I'd rather play a card that does more than prolong the inevitable and maybe slap my opponent on the wrist IF there's a Cliffhaven Vampire in play, but that's just me. Seems like having a card that does something to my opponent is better, such as Battle at the Bridge. I do like Expedition Envoy over Ondu Cleric early game, but I cut Cleric for something else, so it doesn't apply in my case.
