For mana rocks, I'll likely swap out Basalt Monolith with Sol Ring , but outside of that the acceleration I tend to get going doesn't leave me feeling at a loss for resources. If that changes with the deck, I've got a Gilded Lotus laying around that I can put in. I suppose Weathered Wayfarer sits in this boat now as well, for the moment.
I won't deny that Spine of Ish Sah is good, but I feel like experimenting will afford me something I enjoy more that it for that CMC range. If not, of course, I can always replace Scourge of Fleets later
I'm not entirely sure how the Oblivion Ring one works, but the Fiend Hunter which is essentiall the same thing as an Oblivion Ring but on a beater and only targets creatures. Let's say you have a Cartel Aristocrat in play, and you play Fiend Hunter targeting whatever the opponent has, let's say a Huntmaster of the Fells Flip , before the Fiend Hunter ETB trigger resolves, you sacrifice the Fiend Hunter to the Cartel Aristocrat adding the LTB trigger to the top of the stack where it resolves first, then the ETB will resolves, thus permanantly exiling your opponents Huntmaster of the Fells Flip . I assume the Oblivion Ring works the same way as it reads similarily, so if you have something like Erase or Ray of Revelation etc. you can do it. I'm fairly certain that's how it works but I could be wrong, I am human.
What about ... Fiend Hunter for more creature control, and Grand Abolisher to use against counterspells? Then Aven Mindcensor against fetches and pod with Leyline of Sanctity against discard , burn, storm and combo. Faith's Shield , Leonin Abunas and Privileged Position to protect your permanents. Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Nevermore , Trinisphere , Lodestone Golem and Suppression Field all come to mind as white meta hate forms.
Mikaeus, the Lunarch is too slow most of the time I've found, on the turns I'd want to play him, I usually have something else to play that helps my board presence more. Fiend Hunter is definitely a solid, however, I am tight on room and there are usually better creatures I could be playing during those turns. Thank you for the suggestions though! If anything else pops up, let me know if it seems good.
Thanks a ton, mr_spooner! This deck is a really good time. Glimmerpoint Stag is definitely a good call, too, doubling as flicker effect and/or removal spell with legs! I'll give this serious thought... I do like the Fiend Hunter for it's stack trick with Cloudshift though, enabling it to remove two creatures at once. I wasn't aware of this combo until fairly recently, but it comes up surprisingly often. And Gideon's Avenger , why didn't I think of that?! You're right that it's a tough choice to swap, though. I'll give it all some very careful thought.
