Faith's Reward Discussion
5 days ago
personaly in a mono white deck having no Land Tax nor having no Aura of Silence makes your deck being verry slow. that said saga's are historic and enchantments so i would add those at least.
from enchantments i definitly would add in your deck Land Tax ( gets u the lands faster and stady phase) Aura of Silence (protects u from mana rock decks a lot) Sigarda's Aid ( aid's with equipments) True Conviction (double strike and life link) Enduring Renewal (potential infinit combo) Triumph of Gerrard (Saga Trigger and +1/+1) History of Benalia (Saga trigger and get Blockers)
personaly i see u have a lot of mana rocks or mana stuff in artifacts. personaly i don't think they wil help u win the game at all so these are some cards i would suggest adding in your deck for artifacts
Aetherflux Reservoir (makes a treath on the field and shoots a guy death if u have enough lifelink) Azor's Gateway( draw power) Sword of the Animist (mana power) Pearl Medallion (comander costs 3 mana) Bloodforged Battle-Axe (can be nasty after a while) Expedition Map (get an important land for your deck) Basilisk Collar (lifelink and deathtouch) Dispeller's Capsule (removal on artifact)
then for instants and sorcery's i see you got a lot of bordwipes so i imagine that your locals has a lot of token players so this are some cards i would say to have a look at.
Dusk / Dawn ( gets your creatures back pretty fast) Hour of Revelation (wipe when u don't care for 3 mana recast everything u can) Slaughter the Strong (wipe where u can stil do stuff) Gift of Estates (mana search) Rout (wipe possible on instant speed) Open the Armory (search an equipment) Idyllic Tutor (search enchantment or saga) Open the Vaults (get your enchantments back) Enlightened Tutor (search enchantment or equipment or saga) Second Sunrise ( return after boardwipe for everyone) Faith's Reward ( return after boardwipe for yourself) Teferi's Protection (u don't play for a turn)Silence (opponent doesn't play for a turn) Hallowed Moonlight (protect from combo deck) Forsake the Worldly (exile a treath or cycle)
than for creatures i would have a good look for them couse i don't realy see any creature that can win u the game. some auto includesSun Titan ( get something outof your graveyard back)Burnished Hart ( get land) Aven Mindcensor (Tutor protection)Recruiter of the Guard (search your pieces)Puresteel Paladin (decent creature for int he deck) Monastery Mentor ( token generator) Mentor of the Meek (draw a card)Nova Cleric (destroy all enchantments) Loyal Sentry (destroy wichever u block)

Hey TzickyT no worries, the community is here to help each other out!
Remember the Fallen would be great if you're building a Hunting Grounds / The Mending of Dominaria / Satyr Wayfinder / Mulch / Crucible of Worlds type deck (and others). At CMC3 it's pretty good, it returns a creature and an artifact, so it turns 1 card into 2 cards, just need a way to get the cards in the graveyard. Eternal Witness would be awesome in this build too. CMC3 is a bit slow for my strategy, and because it returns to the hand, and it's a sorcery, I wouldn't run it. If it was Instant, probably. Or if it was CMC2. If it slows me down a turn, it's not good for this build, have to fast infect and punch through (in this particular build).
It's funny I don't run any board-wipe in my build, this one is good because most cats can dodge it (before eminence). For CMC3 its very good. It's going to miss a bunch of creatures you really want to get rid of though, that something like Wrath of God will, could be a dead draw against certain commanders (tokens notably). It depends on your build, I don't see a Arahbo, Roar of the World in your public decks, but in my build, I use evasion (Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Trample, Doublestrike) to overcome blockers, I don't need to clear the board. I thought about Divine Reckoning as well, but I really dislike situational cards that may miss the real target. I'd probably also want protection, like Faith's Reward and abuse that infinitely, or Make a Stand / Rootborn Defenses / Teferi's Protection that type of effect to go along with it. I'm even contemplating taking out more protection / control to get more tutor, like Eldritch Evolution into the deck.
Blackblade Reforged with it's Equip 7 is too much. In my build, I'm not equipping Legendary creatures, Lost Leonin, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Adorned Pouncer etc. And rarely cast Arahbo, Roar of the World. There are some cool Legendary cats to equip, like Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist but I don't have enough Legendary to make it viable. It really needs Sigarda's Aid / Hammer of Nazahn / Puresteel Paladin / Balan, Wandering Knight / Stonehewer Giant / Stoneforge Mystic / Balan, Wandering Knight along with land enablers Cultivate / Kodama's Reach / Oreskos Explorer / Sword of the Animist / Nissa's Pilgrimage / Burnished Hart / Traverse the Outlands / Crucible of Worlds / Etc. A slight modification to this build could make it very effective. Because it doesn't have Trample, Haste, Lifelink, Draw, or Infect built in, it's not a priority. I'd still much rather have a Grafted Exoskeleton or a Steelshaper's Gift (or the likes) to Tutor my Grafted Exoskeleton, than draw a Blackblade Reforged. You'll also notice i've removed duplicate effects like I have Loxodon Warhammer but no Behemoth Sledge because they do the same things. I'd just rather tutor the better one Loxodon Warhammer in this case, than have 2 cards that do the same thing. Just my way of playing, I like consistency over force. I could see this with some nice Legendary creatures and enablers working out very well though, especially with Doublestrike/Trample mechanics. Imagine casting Berserk on a cat wielding this sword!! I do like this type of mechanic, and with you can overload the heck out of it, Lashwrithe is one of my favorites, nice too cause it's a living weapon. Would also be good on a Commander that does Commander damage as a strategy (Arahbo, Roar of the World doesn't do Commander damage)
All these are viable if properly supported in the deck. Like you wouldn't play a Prowling Serpopard in a Retribution of the Meek build, and Kemba, Kha Regent would be in a Blackblade Reforged build, as examples.
They all are too much protection, or potentially too slow / high CMC for me. I'm still testing whenever I can, deck is still not functionally perfect yet, but I do consistently pull my Lost Leonin + Eminence + Doublestrike enabler though, which is the goal! Much of the reason I don't play Lightning Greaves because I need to abuse the Eminence trigger.

You may consider some recursion that's not stuck to a creature. One of my favorites is to pair a board wipe with Faith's Reward: You get your stuff back and they don't. If it's a one-sided board wipe (you're losing high ground), there's Second Sunrise, but that's pretty group hug most days. They're also good if you end up running things like Greater Good or Momentous Fall so you can get back your baddies in quick order!
Draw in these colors is a paaaain. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is my new favorite one. Mind's Eye is expensive mana cost, but in multiplayer mid to late game is great. Since you've got a lot of flying, Mask of Memory has a high chance of making it through. I can't tell if you have enough weenies to make Mentor of the Meek or Skullclamp Worthwhile... Elspeth Helps. The new Karn, Scion of Urza is bad ass draw, but sometimes slow and ends up losing the card you really want.
Keep up the good brew!

I meant Faith's Reward they both do the same thing

OK... lets start with the creatures. u only want big hitters or stuff that do things while entering/attacking (Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Balefire Dragon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Lord of the Void, Demonlord Belzenlok). If you want some cheap creatures play stuff like Stoneforge Mystic to get ur hexproof equipments or Mother of Runes/Grand Abolisher for protection. The small creatures you have, like Monastery Swiftspear, Knight of Infamy basically dont do anything. Anger: there are way better ways to give ur stuff haste.Serra Angel: doesnt do enough.- The Manabase is fine. u can allways upgrade it with some shock or fetch lands, maybe Nomad Outpost, Path of Ancestry .- Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet are pretty much must have.- As for removal spells, try to go for unconditional stuff like Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking. Also try to get in at least one mass revival like Primevals' Glorious Rebirth, Faith's Reward can be game ending after an board wipe.- You also want some haste givers like Dragon Tempest or Fervor.- The most important thing for this kind of deck is to keep ur commander around. Whispersilk Cloak is fine, but the boots are cheaper and also give haste Swiftfoot Boots Lightning Greaves.- Another important thing is card draw. u already have Rune-Scarred Demon, but its by far not enough. Bloodgift Demon, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence is pretty much my first tutor target in almost every game, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor. there are also cheaper alternatives like Diabolic Tutor.- Just look around other kaalia decks and see what theyre doing and of course playtest alot.

I would cut On Serra's Wings. As fun a card as it is, I'm not sure a four mana aura that doesn't recur itself somehow is going to be worth it in this deck.
Skysovereign, Consul Flagship is a sweet vehicle but it costs 5 and is probably not good enoug here.
I think Ghostfire Blade is the worst of your 1-mana equipment and could be cut.
I always try to put Masterwork of Ingenuity into my decks and it always ends up getting cut. Maybe you will have more luck, but its such an easy thing to cut when looking for things to cut because it doesn't do anything on its own. It's probably better here than in most decks though, with the 1 mana draw a card attached.
No Argentum Armor? I know it is very expensive for this deck's curve, but I still think it may be worth it. It's a very powerful equipment and you are a tad light on removal anyway.
I could go either way on the creatures that just get boosted for being equipped like Kor Duelist, Auriok Edgewright, etc. If your plan is to do Voltron with Sram, they really don't help you toward that goal in any way and could be easily cut. But they are not a bad back-up plan if you don't want to go all in on Sram voltron. Hmm. Similarly, is Mirran Crusader doing anything special here, or is he just a fun dude to equip?
Auriok Steelshaper doesn't do as much as he sounds like he might and I have cut him before. Sram isn't even a Soldier/Knight to boot. Same with Stone Haven Outfitter; remember that if you are doing Voltron and equipping Sram and he dies and you put him in the command zone, he didn't die so you won't draw a card.
So all that said, I would suggest the following:
OUT: Second Sunrise, Forebear's Blade, Sword of Vengeance, Key to the City, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Ghostfire Blade, Grappling Hook, Inquisitor's Flail, Conqueror's Galleon Flip, On Serra's Wings, Auriok Steelshaper, Stone Haven Outfitter, Mirran Crusader
That should bring tyou from 109 -> 114 -> 100, if I did my math right. Oh, and you definately want Field of Ruin/Tectonic Edge/Ghost Quarter/Strip Mine with this kind of deck! Otherwise Maze of Iths just ruin your whole day. And Rogue's Passage.

Yes the downside of using Sram for the Heirloom Blade Tutor Chain is that he himself must die and go to the graveyard, READ: NOT COMMANDER ZONE, but there are two creatures directly that can return him located at steps # 6 Devoted Crop-Mate and #8 Sun Titan in the tutor chain itself. Other ways to return Sram after Heirloom Blade:
The first three steps in the tutor chain, Sram, Senior Edificer -> Restoration Specialist -> Stoneforge Mystic, are a simple and very easily broken example, but it shows the concept and raw power of the tutor chain. Imagine at any time you had your commander and this one random cheap equipment, if your opponent used a card to destroy your commander, you get your dwarf girlfriend out of your deck for free. She sacs herself, returns an artifact and enchantment from the graveyard, and now you get a free SFM out of your deck. Grab that Sword of Light and Shadow and get that Sram back, enjoy that free SWORD TO SWORD TUTOR. How many times can you say my heirloom blade is a guaranteed sword of shadow and light. The creature list in this deck has this entire underground network of value that most people dont know exists, and wont unless unlocked by the power of Heirloom Blade.
After some more research I found things like Kjeldoran Outpost, Kor Duelist, Nahiri, the Lithomancer and Elspeth, Knight-Errant which meant I can reliably unlock the "Soldier" type, allowing me to tutor out soldier creatures from deck for free, which for mono white also meant unlocking "Human" and "Warrior", and all the insane cards there, but really also meant "Giant Warrior" Stonehewer Giant and Giant, Sun Titan, thus now allowing me actually being able to tutor every single creature out of my deck (theoretically) by having them form this "chain" of 1-shared creature type.
Ultimately the goal was to reliably be able to tutor out Sun Titan, because if you need something from your graveyard he can most likely get it back for you (49 cards cmc 3 or less).
Regardless, the concept is just hilarious to me that you can start with Sram, Senior Edificer and at best case scenario he can tutor out Sun Titan for you so there Is some guaranteed catch-all recursion for this deck. Its just this background, weird side-chain thing that really does random tutors or tron heroes more often than not, but with sheer amount of thought and planning it can line up to be one of the most value cards in the deck! At worst, its +3 dmg for 1 equip, and draws off Sram.
The tempo! The ablities! The lulz! For some silly card no one really uses, especially outside some tribal deck, it has the potential to break open this deck to a level of tutoring never seen before.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Fight to the Death, Settle the Wreckage, Shared Animosity, Comeuppance, Teferi's Protection, Faith's Reward, and a suite of little enchantments like Serra's Blessing, High Ground, and Reconnaissance might smooth out a combat step or two for you and catch your opponents on the back foot, so to speak.
Have fun brewing!
