Gate to Phyrexia Discussion

FaithfulCorpse on Ashling Group Stax

Thanks for the comment StopShot. Adressing these cards individually I think Strionic Resonator might be a little unneeded simply because I have so much board clear and Gravepact like effects. Arcane Lighthouse is a good consideration and it will be sideboarded until my local meta sees fit to need it. Gate to Phyrexia is an interesting one, I don't have good methods for killing off artifacts, and in some cases locking people to simply Black mana wob't be enough, this is a potential include. As for Sorin, I simply don't think he'd fit. The down to 10 life is nice, but I'd rather not invest mana for a one off effect like that, if possible.

Strionic Resonator is good since it can double the sacrifice triggers. Arcane Lighthouse also helps you by-pass shroud and hexproof which would also prove valuable. Vampiric Tutor would also be helpful, since you can cast it right before your drawstep so that you draw into what you tutor for. Gate to Phyrexia will also help you remove pesky artifacts which is hard to do in mono-black. Lastly I feel Sorin Markov makes a much stronger planeswalker since he can toss your opponent down to 10 life as one of his ready-abilities.

Ah, I get you. Cheap cards help speed things up. In that case I'm surprised you're not running Lim-Dul's Vault as another tutor.

Also Gate to Phyrexia would be pretty effective considering blue and black aren't always that great at removing artifacts.

Grave Pact also puts losing tokens to good use.

Strands of Night is also helpful since it can help keep your commander and/or other key creatures rooted to the battlefield especially if you have Phyrexian Altar and spare creatures to sacrifice.

Academy Ruins would also be helpful if any of your combo-piece artifacts are removed.

Also given your commander is scrying for you each turn you can practically break Scroll Rack by drawing cards for ones you don't need and having your God scry them away so you don't draw into them next turn.

I hope these suggestions fit better in your deck.

A "Gate card" is a card with the land type "Gate."

Note that Golgari Guildgate has "Gate" in its type line. Cemetery Gate does not, and neither does Gate to Phyrexia.

Other than the guildgates, do cards like Cemetery Gate, Gate to Phyrexia, etc... work towards the "10 or more" gate cards in Maze's End?

I did say it was a ton:

Arbor Elf x5, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Misdirection (masques), Dakmor Salvage x3 (2 FUT, 1 DD), Sudden Shock x2, Wild Nacatl x2, Qasali Pridemage, Martyr of Sands x2, Nimble Mongoose, Thought Scour x4 (3 DKA, 1 DD), Skred x4, Kor Firewalker x4, Zealous Persecution x2, Firespout, Magma Jet (DD), Dissipate x2 (M15), Darksteel Citadel x2, Breakthrough (CNS), Sakura-Tribe Elder x4, Duress x4 (M13), Sulfur Elemental x2, Vapor Snag, Ornithopter x4, Wipe Away, Mystical Teachings x2, Boreal Druid x3, Volcanic Fallout (CNS), Ingot Chewer x4, Empty the Warrens x4, Punishing Fire x4, Condemn x4, Dragon's Claw x4, Combust x4, Elvish Visionary x4, Farseek x4, Edge of Autumn x4 (FUT), Repeal x4 (GPT), Think Twice x4 (TSP), Intangible Virtue x4, Raise the Alarm x2, Celestial Purge x4, Ray of Revelation (JUD), Apostle's Blessing x4, Patrician's Scorn x4 (FUT), Wispmare x4, Leonin Relic-Warder x2, Izzet Staticaster, Grapple with the Past x3, Take Inventory x2, Steel Sabotage x4, Zulaport Cutthroat x2, Blessed Alliance, Lightning Storm, Welding Jar, Stubborn Denial, Dispel (2 RTR, 2 BFZ), Faerie Macabre x2, Tuktuk Scrapper, and Energy Flux

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).

I also added a few things since you last looked though my binder, like 4 Puresteel Paladins and 4 Etched Champions, so let me know if anything new jumps out at you.

Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.

Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.

Hope to hear from you.
