Glissa, the Traitor occurrence in decks from the last year
Glissa, the Traitor Discussion
6 days ago
Hey all! This is my current deck I'm working on, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I have a cut and a need for some upgrades however.
Firstly, I'm trying to slot an Eternal Witness in here somewhere, but I'm having trouble deciding if it's worth to add in in this case. Any suggestions?
Secondly, what are some good cards I should save up for in the future? I'm thinking cards like Cloudstone Curio and Sylvan Library are on the list, but would love any other suggestions. Highest I'll go is around 40$.
I'm aiming for the deck to just be quicker at what it does: getting Karametra out ASAP, then proceeding to ramp out and overwhelm my opponents with my boardstate. Thanks for any help!

I am posting my Glissa, the Traitor list again. After playing it numerous times now I feel that it does a great job grinding out value and just about nothing else. I've made a few changes to streamline the deck to be more efficient and speed things up a bit, but I am looking for other suggestions on how to speed the deck up (without going for cards like Mana Crypt and Mox Opal). Also, thoughts on the Attrition + Ornithopter combo?
Thanks in advance!

Hi, Just to say that your deck could gain from the addition of Glissa, the Traitor, Grave Titan, and Wurmcoil Engine as really good deathtouch creatures. And Thornbite Staff might be better than Viridian Longbow in such a deck (in my oppinion, you should run both).

Yeva, Nature's Herald and Vivien, Champion of the Wilds allow you to mutate at instant speed, with Kaseto, Orochi Archmage you can win with commander damage, Lazav, the Multifarious can do some nasty tricks with your graveyard, Glissa, the Traitor with trample is a real pain, Elusive Tormentor Flip can be a solid target to mutate on. Hope this can help :)

If you have the spare fast mana rocks laying around, I don't see the problem with running them over slower mana rocks like Blinkmoth Urn and Thran Dynamo. I probably wouldn't cut the slower rocks that can later be cashed in for card draw though.
I feel like the inclusion of Top is up to preference. It's a strong card and will do well here, but I personally only run it in decks which have a good amount of library manipulation or in decks where it has a specific function (like a game winning combo in my Glissa, the Traitor deck).

shadow63, multimedia, Gift of the Deity is too good to remove from this deck (it is especially awesome with Glissa, the Traitor, but I shall instead remove two copies of Vulturous Zombie, since that card has the same converted mana cost.
I also have removed Leyline of Vitality, since its effect is not sufficiently great to make a major difference in this deck, which, along with removing two lands, brings this deck to 60 cards.

I would run Mindslicer as well as Pennon Blade. Additionally, how often do you need to recur your artifacts that Glissa, the Traitor is needed? Carpet of Flowers might be a solid ramp option if you play against decks that even splash blue.
