Forsaken Sanctuary Discussion

Champion of Dusk provides 2 or 3 cards and is a 4/4 body.

Duskborne Skymarcher may activate Mavren Fein quite safely because it flies but I'm not sure.

Ixalan's Binding in the maindeck may be better in your local meta, with 1 card you get rid of 3 - 4 threats.

Regarding your mana problems you could try Forsaken Sanctuary since you have no 1 mana drops

Hi Sjorpha and sorry for my late reply. I have been sick therefor I haven't been online for a while.

Funny you mention Scoured Barrens, I was actually looking at that specific land to slot in to my deck. I'm thinking of dropping some Plains and adding that instead of changing out the Forsaken Sanctuary.

In this setup I would have 4 Forsaken Sanctuary, 5 Plains, 4 Scoured Barrens. Would this be viable? I was also looking at Marsh Flats but it so damn expensive. What are your thoughts on Orzhov Basilica, Isolated Chapel or Orzhov Guildgate instead of Marsh Flats? And if so, should I drop Swamps or Plains in regards to the new land setup? (Mutavault and Ghost Quarter could be any of the three I mentioned as well)

Adding some 1 drops sounds good, even though it kinda goes against what I wanted in the first place (just having control instead of an Aggro deck). But maybe it is the best route to take. Guul Draz Assassin is almost too cool to not have :D and Vicious Conquistador looks to be a fit!

I will look in to adding the sideboard artifact/enchantments as well! First I need to put my hands on the cards that I am missing the main deck. Would be great to get your input on the land question.

Thank you once again for all your help! :) Much appriciated!

Put more swamps than plains, especially since you're running Gifted Aetherborn. Also, you might want to run two Forsaken Sanctuary if you don't have 4 Concealed Courtyard just to make the mana better.

A few initial thoughts before I start testing.

I like Concealed Courtyard better than Forsaken Sanctuary as it's superior in the early game. Four would help out a lot.

Spire of Industry will speed up your game. You could put two in and take out two basic lands. The life loss won't hit you much after the first couple of Turns.

Profane Procession  Flip may be a decent two of in the Sideboard. I could see it being useful in games that go long, where your Opponent starts to build up too much of a board presence.

The splash of green seems wholly unnecessary; Rhonas the Indomitable, Huatli, Radiant Champion, and Majestic Myriarch can be replaced by Vona, Butcher of Magan, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, and/or Twilight Prophet.

Which will allow you to streamline your land base. the Evolving Wilds, Forest, Foul Orchard, Hashep Oasis, and Scattered Groves can be replaced with Concealed Courtyard, Forsaken Sanctuary, and/or Unclaimed Territory.

P.S. Orzhov Guildgate is NOT Standard-legal.

Not sure if you want the bigger body, but Lone Missionary does the same thing as Inspiring Cleric but for one less mana. It might be nice to have a better curve as to Lone Missionary, Vampire Nighthawk then to Herald of War.

Also, lands like Orzhov Basilica and Azorius Chancery are terrible lands in modern (with the exception of one deck that utilizes their bounce effect). If you're looking for other budget options (because this deck looks budgeted) you could look into Forsaken Sanctuary, Isolated Chapel, Choked Estuary, Drowned Catacomb, and Sunken Hollow. With all of the angels you play, you could also look into Seraph Sanctuary.

Lands: Take out 2 Mountains, Stone Quarry, Cinder Barrens, and Forsaken Sanctuary and maybe the Guildgates if you want and add in at least one plains, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, any of the life gain dual lands from Tarkir... just use better duals than the strictly-worse guildgates. I have a personal issue with those lands. They insulted "Avatar the Last Airbender" once.


Things to pull: Ancient Hellkite works to slow, requires to much investment, and is too conditional. Forgestoker Dragon cuz it's clunky and slow compared to other things. (A lot of these suggestions will be cutting the worst of duplicate effects). Aegis Angel (above reason)? Wojek Embermage? Paragon of Open Graves cuz you don't have enough black to make its ability work. Scalding Salamander is too conditional. Either Vulshok Sorcerer or Blood Cultist. Crossbow Infantry. Stun Sniper. Painsmith because not enough artifacts.

Artifacts: That Which Was Taken cuz it's also too slow.

Unless you're trying to stay with an ixalan theme, I would recommend switching out Forsaken Sanctuary for Isolated Chapel, Fetid Heath, Caves of Koilos, Godless Shrine, or even just Scoured Barrens if you're going ultra budget.
