Restoration Specialist is a great idea; I didn't like the activation cost when I was thinking about it before, but that makes it much easier to reanimate with with Alesha. Thanks for the suggestion! As far as exile, I'm running Fountain Watch but that's about as far as protection is gonna go because that's just not a fun way to live your life.

Idyllic Tutor can find Doubling Season, same with Enlightened Tutor but also hits Chain Veil. Snapcaster Mage is good to reuse tutors or removal. Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage have solid emblems. I'd dump Freyalise, Garruk Wildspeaker and Ashiok as they don't really synergize. Fountain Watch protects Doubling Season and Chain Veil. The only Jace you really need is Unraveler, the goal should be to accumulate emblems. Liliana Vess is good for tutoring also.

Nice build, just needs a little refining. +1

Hey, GobboE.True, in my quest for limiting my auras in this deck, I left out a pretty important one. Going to have to find room for it. Sterling Grove is my cheaper sister card of Greater Auramancy, and I don't think I'd want to put shroud on Uril, as I myself can't target him either. Haven't seen Fountain Watch before. Cool card.

Hi ay.lobo Allow me to return the favour.

First: this is a good deck, though I hate to be at the receiving end of it :)

The only card I miss is Indestructibility: non expensive, fast, boosts Uril, protects him, all rolled into one.

Greater Auramancy: everybody (rightfully) hates this card, but it is so good

And Fountain Watch if you have it.

I think it is worth throwing a few enchantments into the mix. I know it's not as attractive to possibly get 2 for 1'd, but with Sram, I think card advantage makes it worthwhile.

Battle Mastery, Empyrial Armor, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority are all pretty solid and affordable.

I would suggest some easy 'yard recursion like Argivian Find, Restoration Specialist, or even Open the Vaults. Just in case someone smashes your favorite artifact.

Other protection options include Fountain Watch, Indomitable Archangel, Leonin Abunas, etc.

@BlackWitch: Well, you made some great points there against the Conscription as well as for it. I'm definitely for just because of the raw power it gives me: +10/+10. Imagine it on the Inkmoth Nexus! Yes, it will be buried in my end step when the Moth becomes a land again, but, well, I don't need it anymore after my opp is dead. :)

Yeah, the Oblation was on its way out anyway. It got eventually kicked out and replaced by Path to Exile.

I am not interested in blinking by creatures too much. Sure, the Eldrazi Displacer can do that, but it's in the deck for extra protection and to tap opponent's creatures if needed.

Well, mana disappears after each phase so yes, it will last only during the upkeep.

I did playtest New Benalia and it didn't do much for me. Scrying Sheets on the other hand looks great. It is a little more on the pricey side, so it has to wait a while but I definitely want to try it out!

Fountain Watch, Lost Auramancers and Harsh Judgment all look nice! I will probably get myself a copy of each but they will probably be more of a 'sideboard' more than in the main because of their dependence on the situation. I got rid of the Leonin Abunas because of it too. most of the times it was just a 2/5 piece of wood.

Prison Term indeed is nice, but not really suiting the theme nor the requirements.

Thank you for yet another in-depth look at my foxie.

@HideyoshiYaoi: Antler Skulkin is a really interesting card. I really like all the deer, but it is just too expensive! I do get the 'immortality' for 2 instead of 3 with the Fox, but then, I have to pay 5 for this, so it would have to be used at least 5 times to equal the balance with using the Fox instead. Not really worth it, especially not worth the place in the deck.
Mass removals are another story. Here it will definitely help a lot, but then again: I did have Twilight Shepherd in the deck for most of the time but eventually I got rid of it because it wasn't worth to keep him. The Antler would be just a little worse version of him so ultimately -it fails.

Great thanks for the input anyway! I really appreciate the good will, mate. Cheers!

Hi again Warxuaroz, long time no see ;)

I've got yet another propositions for You. Mostly I've been thinking about protecting Eldrazi Conscription

Fountain Watch would be a bit better than Leonin Abunas. It will help your Kitsune, so he wouldn't be that busy. AND it will protect your precious aura. I know it is 3, but you might consider it.

Lost Auramancers - You pay for this 3/3 creature 2, keep it safe for 3 turns with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and c-mon ! Eldrazi Conscription hits the board! You don't have to worry for it to be countered.

Harsh Judgment as sideboard for red ?

Prison Term is nice.


Antler Skulkin is really, really nice against mass removals, but isn't it a bit expensive ?
