Felidar Sovereign Discussion
1 day ago
Looks like a pretty good start but it could be a bit more focused.
Id try to cut some cards. Generally speaking, you want to play with the minimum number of cards, 60. This gives you the best chance of drawing your best card or the card that you need in a given situation.
As for what to cut I can help give specifics if you want but for now i'm going to speak a bit more generally. Right now you have 3 main themes: Lifegain, Allies, and Counters(this one is not as heavily in your deck compared to the others). While i'm not saying you can't have all three in your deck, it might be better if you select one or two of them and minimize the third. Let me talk about that why that is using life gain as an example.
When you want to build around a theme like life gain it helps to look at your enablers (cards that help do the theme like Retreat to Hagra) and payoff cards (cards that reward you for doing that that theme like Felidar Sovereign). At the moment you have a lot of enablers, but not much in the way of payoff. If you can, Id look into more payoff cards such that your deck can reward you for gaining life more reliably. (As an aside the best payoff cards for lifegain in my opinion are Ajani's Pridemate, Archangel of Thune, Serra Ascendant, Felidar Sovereign and Angelic Accord).
Now that's all fine in good but what it gets a bit tricky if you want to include 3 main themes. For each theme you would want to include both enablers and payoff cards. If you try to fit all of these in a 60 card deck, you can't have many of each, meaning it's less likely to have both enablers and payoff of the same theme in your hand at the same time. IF you could focus on one or two themes, you can spend more card slots on each making each theme a bit better.
There are a couple other minor things that i could talk about like your mana curve(I could talk about this now but if you cut a lot of cards and shuffle around what you have, this would change your curve and might mean this concern doesn't apply any more), but working on what your theme/theme should be in a 60 card deck seems to be the biggest step you can take right now. Again I think it's a good start, just needs a bit more focus.

[[card:Approach of the Second Sun (AKH)]]
Approach of the Second Sun, tada!
And on more on-topic, I'm hoping to see some funny wins with Approach of the Second Sun rather than the general Felidar Sovereign "oops, you didn't attack me enough and now I won"; cause you could end up casting Approach of the Second Sun with a Narset, Enlightened Master EDH deck several times from Narset, but never from hand, until you get the draw spells, forever taunting your opponents with a win in sight.

Not a bad list. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic was my first commander.
In time I've found the deck to be not too suitable to my playstyle and moved on to play Brago, the king who says Ni and Kemba kit-kat. I still have my Oloro deck but I am rebuilding it so I can't link you to a deck unfortunatly.
The advice I can give you is add more win cons.
Test of Endurance No need to explain
Felidar Sovereign same as above.
There are some useful creatures you can add, but I'll leave them to your judgement:
- Drogskol Reaver
- Magister Sphinx
- Obzedat, Ghost Council
- Karlov of the Ghost Council
- Ghost Council of Orzhova
There are more cards I used to use, but I don't want to over do it.I hope this helps, and if you need any more help feel free to ask.
Almost forgot, the Kaladesh weapon of mass destruction Aetherflux Reservoir ;)

You're absolutely right - I should probably cut my Felidar Sovereigns down to 3x. Aetherflux Reservoir probably would work better in a deck with more card draw or something, as well as low-cost spells, since it boosts storm-type decks. However, I do have a copy of Knight of the White Orchid that I could throw in here just for a bit of ramp in its place.

@UnleashedHavok, thanks for checking out the deck!
Yeah, it's my flagship EDH deck and doesn't really have a budget; it's not quite balls-to-the-wall competitive though, I've got Breya Combo for that.
Thing about cards like Serra Ascendant and, say, Felidar Sovereign is that they get really old really fast - and most experienced playgroups have already seen enough of those lol. It's the same reason I am only running Darkest Hour in the sideboard against turbo Spikes - it leads to games ending abruptly and just isn't that much fun.
On the other hand, lifegain is a secondary quality of this deck, it just happens to get arbitrarily large amounts of life sometimes incidentally but it's not its main game plan - thus I try to avoid playing cards that rely on lifegain to pay-off.
Ayli is sweet and I definitely considered her. If her first ability didn't have the 1 mana cost, it would have been a 100% auto include; as is, I have cheaper options for sac outlets in Cartel Aristocrat and Viscera Seer and the like. If you're trying to build a Teysa with more of a lifegain focus (with fat Karlov or Aetherflux Reservoir) then Ayli is awesome.

Hey man no problem! what you changed looks great. Yeah I love black white, its so much fun. I would really consider Obzedat, Ghost Council one of my favourite cards. you could definitely squeeze two in. Felidar Sovereign could be funny as hell. Lingering Souls Read the Bones Underworld Connections. A cool thing to note with Obzedat, Ghost Council and Whip of Erebos is that you can whip your obzedat from the grave and he comes back permanently! instead of getting exiled, you exhile him and he returns! lots of fun lol
