Giver of Runes Discussion

TheAnnihilator on H: Devoted Druid Combo; W: ...

1 day ago

Hey all! I've recently decided to let go of my Druid combo stuff, since I prefer a more Pod-like approach as opposed to all-in combo, so I have the following available:

Playsets of:
Devoted Druid (Ultimate Masters)
Vizier of Remedies
Giver of Runes
Finale of Devastation
3 Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip
Eladamri's Call
Knight of Autumn
Birds of Paradise (2 M12, M11, Battlebond)

also:
1 Silent Clearing
2 Walking Ballista
1 Ranger-Captain of Eos
3 Postmortem Lunge
1 Chord of Calling (M15, Russian)
1 Collector Ouphe
3 Veil of Summer
1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Dark Ascension)
4 Restoration Angel (Avacyn Restored)
3 Wall of Omens
1 Spellskite

So yeah, I'm keeping the lands, Hierarchs, Eldritch Evolutions, and Pod stuff (you can't pry Voice of Resurgence or Kitchen Finks from my cold dead hands), but most everything else I have is fair game. If there's anything else I may not have listed, feel free to ask about it. I probably have it. :)

I'm looking for:
Sword of Feast and Famine
4 Ice-Fang Coatl
1 Spell Queller
2 Monastery Mentor (I have 1 Korean if anyone wants to swap their English one)
1x Cavern of Souls (preferable Innistrad, either printing is fine tho)
2x Selesnya Sanctuary
1x Hornet Queen
I will also binder dive, but my binder seems to show only the foil/promos?

Giver of Runes could be a tad better than Mother of Runes because you can also pick colorless or just put them in. Great deck keep us up notice you made some updates. Her downside is she cant protect herself.

February 2020 update:

Deck holds up very well in multiplayer, though some of the clerics' abilities aren't as relevant as I'd expected them to be so time to shave a bit off of the top for removal and more mana ramp. Some of the existing removal is being swapped for more versatile/lower CMC cards as well. I'm torn between Devoted Caretaker and Giver of Runes but went with Giver since its activation doesn't have a mana cost.

Out: Decree of Pain, Despark, Force of Despair, Return to Dust, Soltari Priest, True Believer, Devoted Caretaker, Orim, Samite Healer

In: Wrath of God, Cleansing Nova, Swords to Plowshares, Heliod's Intervention, Erebos's Intervention, Ashnod's Altar, Darksteel Ingot, Giver of Runes

Future: I do like the suggestions of Blood Speaker, Children of Korlis, Daru Spiritualist, Shaman En-Kor and Heirloom Blade and I'll see if I can eventually fit some or all of them in somehow, particularly the Blood Speaker and Blade.

Mother of Runes and Stern Judge are not modern legal.

Giver of Runes is a close second to Mother of Runes which is modern legal, so that's a fairly easy swap if you like her in the deck.

Devout Lightcaster doesn't seem very good. I'm assuming you think that it can exile the opponent's lands when it enters, but lands are colorless, so Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth doesn't make them black.

If you're going hard on the plan of Karma + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , you may want to consider Expedition Map as a way to more consistently find your Urborg .

Your mana base is pretty bad for modern, if you're not on a budget, then Temple Garden will be a good include, as green mana for Spreading Algae that also helps cast the rest of your deck, if you want more than 8 green sources, then something like Canopy Vista is fetchable, or Razorverge Thicket is a better one, but isn't fetchable.

Your gameplan needs some streamlining too, are you killing your opponent with Karma ? If so, destroying their lands with Spreading Algae seems pretty bad. This deck seems to play similarly to a hatebears/death and taxes deck, so you may want to take a look at some of those to see if you want any pieces from there (mana denial etc.)

Canamex on Feedback Requested: Syr Gwyn, Mardu ...

Got it @StopShot. That makes sense.

I am actually thinking now of swapping out Knight of the Ebon Legion and Dauntless Bodyguard for Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes to help with some protection for Gwyn as she’ll be a target often.

Also, thoughts on Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor somewhere in the deck?

SynergyBuild on How would you "fix" white

2 months ago

Do you mean for standard? EDH? I mean, in supplemental products like modern horizons or commander products we've gotten Teferi's Protection , Ranger-Captain of Eos , Giver of Runes , and specifically for EDH, Smothering Tithe , and the dominant card of it's standard, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar all in mono-white, outside of that, multicolored white spells are some of the best, with Dovin's Veto , Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Kaya's Guile , Siege Rhino , and Deafening Clarion .

For standard Seal Away , cards like Benalish Marshal , Legion's End , the nearly ever-present-since-printed aggro based Venerated Loxodon builds in selesnya or mono-white, as well the base of removal for a while between Settle the Wreckage , Seal Away , and Cleansing Nova .

Even more recently Kaya's Wrath and Time Wipe have been the go-to sweepers. The number-one deck rn is Jeskai Fires abusing Kenrith, Teferi, Clarion, and Justice Strike , Azorious control using Planar Cleansing (a triple white card) is very popular too, and with decks like Mardu Knights, Selesnya Adventure, etc. you'll see white isn't out.

But sure, I would like white to be more powerful, for Vintage, unrestrict Balance , that'd do the trick, for Legacy, just print a 1 mana hatebear for 1cmc instants. Super specific but it'd crush the delver and storm builds that keep it in it's place. Give it protection from instants too so they need a different removal package to deal with it. For Modern, give white a way to deal with tron that is difficult to splash, something like Tomik mixed with Damping Sphere that isn't a human, otherwise that 5c deck will take it.

That and the legacy dude can help some mono-white list beat Shadow, Infect, Eldrazi Tron, Normal Tron, Dredge once they bring in their Axes/Dark Blasts to beat the weenie strategy.

In Pioneer, Humans and Azorius Control are already good.

In standard, give a mono-white strategy some way, that though splashable isn't easy to do so () that hates on graveyards while being good, and some unsplashable way to hate on big creatures. Think The Wanderer if it was good and like or something. Both of these cards need to be decent even without the hate, and with it it suddenly is mainboardable as hate against Cat-Food and Fires respectively.

hungry000 on Making White great again

If you want to take inspiration from existing decks, the best purely mono w deck in modern is Martyr Proc ( Martyr of Sands + Proclamation of Rebirth + Squad Hawk). Another decent white deck to look at is Death & Taxes, especially since they unbanned Stoneforge Mystic and printed Giver of Runes .

Looking at that list of cards, a Martyr Soul Sisters deck comes to mind. You would use the token makers in conjunction with the soul sisters to gain life, then grind them out with Sky Hussar. This idea does not seem to be very competitive, but it would use a bunch of those cards.

If I had to try and build a decent mono white deck that wasn't just a copy/paste, I'd make one with the Celestial Kirin and Ugin's Conjurant combo and back it up with some D&T cards like Giver of Runes . Incidentally, a deck like that would like Flagstones of Trokair very much.
