Gifted Aetherborn Discussion
18 hours ago
So far in testing it works fantastic. Every game tends to play out the same way so I really like the consistency. Havent had a chance to test against control really but against creature heavy strategies it tends to dominate. Wanting to try to fit Servant of the Conduit for more mana early but Gifted Aetherborn is so good on the defensive.

Oh I guess you mostly need to cut cards:
Ageless Entity is just a big fat boy, no evasion, no +1/+1 counter synergy. He doesn't do enough for 5 mana. Baneslayer Angel is kinda in the same boat. Gains some life, but not super resilient, and not a super fast clock. Exalted Angel falls under the same category of medium beaters. Probably Gisela, the Broken Blade too?
All 3 soul sisters should go, they're pure dedicated life gain with no other upside in a deck that already gains plenty of life. They might be good enough for Karlov that gets immediate value off of repeated small incremental life gain, but not for you.
Sangromancer is pure dedicated life gain on a medium body. I don't think much of it but it can situationally gain crazy life. I'd cut it but I can see the argument for it.
Siege Rhino maaaaaaaybe? If you intend to go full on tempo agro? Doesn't feel like an amazing strategy tho, and the deck feels more grindy than agro.
Quiet Disrepair this is a comically bad way to get rid of a problem artifact or enchantment, and some of those faster, more certain methods gain life anyway.
Leyline of Vitality is basically just a soul sister.
Maybe trim a few pieces of your more mediocre spot removal? Molder sticks out as pretty bad.
6 field sweeps seems a little high considering you kind of want your field to stick, and your recursion isn't super strong. Day of Judgment at least seems like it could go.
You got like 10 ways to kill artifacts/enchantments, so Fracturing Gust might be overkill.

I think you should get rid of the Arena due to your mostly low cost creatures. 1 Swamp due to the the low mana curve for the deck. The 2 Vampire Nighthawks (due to Gifted Aetherborn and your ability to outpace almost any flyer aggro deck) can go. Death's Shadow is very unlikely to proc well, so it wouldn't hurt throwing some Diregraf Ghouls (maybe 2) and Gravecrawlers (maybe 3) for intense early game pressure. I would also get rid of both Phyrexian Arenas, adding 1 more Sign in Blood in it's place as it seems to be enough draw for many decks of similar archetypes. This would be at 59, and I would drop 1 Gatekeeper of Malakirs (due to Fatal Push and the chance opponent may not be creature heavy), as well as Liliana, the Last Hope (due to lack of consistency being a 1 of win con). In their place, 3 Geralf's Messengers are a great 3 mana value card for black, adding 3 devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. I really like the deck (having a mono black aggro myself) and hope to hear your opinion on my suggestions!

Congratulations on a first deck LykosMTG! Excited to see you making decks, but I do have a few recommendations.1. Make it 60 cards. There are reasons why all competitive decks are 60 cards; it's so you get the most consistency and least variance. So, here's what I suggest you remove. CUT DOWN TO 24 LANDS- REMOVE Queen's Bay Soldier - It's a trash 2/2, only reason is b/c its a vampire- REMOVE Paladin of Atonement - how are you going to lose life?- REMOVE Legion Conquistador - how does this help you? It has a trash mana ratio- REMOVE Exultant Skymarcher - poor mana ratio, other flyers are better

Hey guys,Tried to post in Advertise deck pinned thread, but didn't get a reply, so figured I would try and post it here. Feel like it needs a bit of tweaking, thinking of adding Gifted Aetherborn, what do you all think?

ticked-off-squirrel I really enjoy Bone Picker and it has been added to the deck for sure. I don't seem to have too much of a problem with other aggro decks, with enough removal and Gifted Aetherborn to deal with most of them efficiently. Read the Bones is an interesting option, but it might be too high for my low mana curve. It will be tested for potential, though. Thanks for the feedback! It definitely helps to get more opinions!

Thanks for the suggestions Braingamer! I think you're definitely right that Gideon's Resolve isn't worth keeping in. Sanctum Seeker has been basically gold, especially for getting the turn 4 or 5 win, so I will probably keep those in. I might be taking out Bishop of the Bloodstained and Call to the Feast to lower the general CMC of the deck, and will consider adding Gifted Aetherborn and Cartouche of Solidarity!
