BaneOfLordran on Mono Blue Devotion - THD

I love the list. I had the feeling once Thassa, Deep-Dwelling was revealed that mono-blue would be a more competetive list going forward.

I have to say tho, I feel like Vantress Gargoyle feels like the weak link here.

In mono blue, and with the SWEET emry synergy, it is a playable card, but I feel that if instead you ran Fae of Wishes as well as a few one off card in the sideboard ( Flood of Tears , Commence the Endgame other one off's, ect) you might be able to squeeze some more value out of the two drop slot. Fae still blocks just as well, but gives you a bit more to do with your mana generated from nyx lotus/kiora, and you can even pull vantress from the board given that it is an artifact if I am not mistaken. ( maybe not considering it is a creature artifact :P )

Also a card to consider would be Sphinx of Foresight . I have a blue green Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner deck built around Lotus Field and use him to great effect.

That said, I have yet to try the list out to see how it plays and to see how consistent you can get vantress to attack/block anyhow.

Sweet list +1

There is a lot of things in this deck that I see can be upgraded or removed.

First, I'll suggest some cards you could put in.

I'll start out with suggesting some boardwipes. Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Planar Cleansing , and Flood of Tears are some things you should look into.

More ways to stop the opponent's creatures would help. Lawmage's Binding , Frogify , and Kasmina's Transmutation stop creatures from using their abilities. Immolating Glare , Conclave Tribunal and Path to Exile are also things you should consider.

More counterspells would help too. Counterspell , Disallow , Devious Cover-Up , Void Shatter , and Absorb will stop your opponents from playing the spells they want to play.

I have a couple creature suggestions as well. God-Eternal Kefnet can cast your instants and sorceries twice, and Angel of Grace can save you from the brink.

A few miscellaneous cards that you should consider are Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Control Magic , Lightning Greaves , and Sphinx's Insight .

Some cards to cut would be:

Flux Channeler , Cancel , No Escape , Dissolve , Blind Obedience (since it has in the card and therefore cannot be used since your commander is ), and Psychic Corrosion .

Hope this helps!

Cool deck. Definitely a +1 from me.

I think a big weakness to these types of decks is dying to combat damage as you've already acknowledged in the description. I'd recommend more general control. What I mean by that is more board wipes and rift type effects like Damnation , Evacuation , Darkness , Flood of Tears , Engulf the Shore , Whelming Wave , etc.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

It's a neat concept! Leyline of Anticipation is a neat card for enabling your style of deck and boosting devotion. That said...I don't think Prophet of Kruphix is remotely playable in competitive formats. It's a 5 mana ramp spell at the top of your curve that dies to Lightning Strike . It's like a really vulnerable Fires of Invention . Drop prophet if nothing else, it's so much worse than leyline for you.

I feel pretty confident in saying that your green splash just isn't worth it as this build stands now. It severely strains your mana, prophet isn't worth it, Growth Spiral is decent but not something to splash for, and while Frilled Mystic is pretty good, double green is so hard. Your green splash sacrifices your ability to consistently play Gadwick, or have a t4 play of cutthroat into > trickster. 3 forest + 3 nykthos will absolutely to back to haunt you in terms of mana consistency. Alternately, look into some Nightpack Ambusher if you want a payoff for playing at instant speed. Also, if you do stay in green, see about Scavenging Ooze for your sideboard.

I also think the Torrential Gearhulk + Dig Through Time package doesn't make a lot of sense. Gearhulk is NOT good if he just opts; he's only impressive if he has a variety of spells to choose from, like counterspells or removal. But you're a creature deck, and he synergizes with noncreatures. Similarly, dig synergizes with high volumes of instants and sorceries going to the graveyard, and 8 pieces of fuel is NOT enough.

Lastly, the inclusion of Flood of Tears confuses me. You don't have high CMC payoffs, so it's just a boardwipe that you get to recover from faster. If you really want that effect, Cyclonic Rift is superior in almost every way(though I'm not SURE you want the effect at all).

Just_A_Friend on Blue, I embrace you. (Suggestions Welcome.)

I would recommend Flood of Tears . It goes infinite with Omniscience and any wizard that returns a spell to your hand when it ETBs. Archaeomancer is the best one that I can think of off the top of my head.
