CodeKain on God-Eternal hatebears

Really nice list, I love hatebears, heheh.

Unless you are particularly on a budget, I'd advise you to add some other bears, such as Alms Collector, Leonin Arbiter, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Glowrider.

Suppression Field (hits fetchlands too) and Aura of Silence may also be highly desirable.

For artifacts, you may consider also Damping Sphere to hose storm decks, and Pearl Medallion to reduce the cost of basically everything you play.

Some of them are quite pricey though, I know, but with time this deck will become a force to be reckoned with!

Leyline can be clunky in some decks but it has worked out quite well with my D&T and Enchantment prison decks. Getting a Lavinia, Azorius Renegade before the opponent starts the game is pretty strong. Game ending against many decks. Getting a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, or Sanctum Prelate our before the game begins can beat a lot of decks.

Leyline has particularly excelled in my enchantment prison lists as blue actually has a couple of really solid hateful enchantments in Energy Field and Arcane Laboratory. So the enchantment deck gets the benefit of powerful hateful enchantments, the ability to steal the play (along with Serum Powder), and the counters with blue support to hold off the combo decks.

I know some of my card selections are weird. The first oddball I ran into was Molten Psyche. Tendrils of Agony is a potent storm finisher but also incredibly vulnerable to Leyline of Sanctity. So whether you’d play Psyche versus Tendrils really comes down to what the format calls for. Mind Funeral is definitely another oddball that is honestly bad but the format positions itself to make Mind Funeral stronger than it ought to be. Null Rod isn’t a particularly busted card but the Vintage format recontextualizes it to be more powerful than it ought to be. I don’t think a deck is obligated to play Power 9 just because they are legal. I think the shift in power by removing the Restricted list changes the format on a fundamental level.

I’m not saying that Unrestricted Vintage wouldn’t be busted. But could it be manageable? I feel like mentioning opening the Restricted List gets dismissed and there’s little discussion about what the actual format would look like.

I like the group slug in combination with a pillowfort idea. Gisela's wording offers a pretty unique opportunity. Triggered effects that would deal 1 damage to you while she is on the board deal no damage to you instead, but double damage to opponents. Manabarbs, AEther Sting, Battle Strain, Burning Earth, Heat of Battle, Rampaging Ferocidon, City of Brass, Talisman of Conviction, Battlefield Forge are all cards that would have their negative effect negated if Gisela is on the field, while opponents would suffer more.

Ankh of Mishra, Psychogenic Probe, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar, Repercussion, Spellshock, Zo-Zu the Punisher would all be cards that have their negative effects mitigated with Gisela out and opponents would suffer a lot more.

You could complement this game plan with pieces like War's Toll, Caltrops, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Glowrider, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse to tax and slow them down while all the slug effects eat away at life totals.

I feel like there's quite a bit of space to be explored in this niche for Gisela.

Vash13 on A New Hope

Hey awsome deck who doesn't love one sided board wipes? The only two things that come to mind are first cause of Avacyns already demanding cost I would go a little harder on the board lock some mono white allstars in my book are Glowrider/Winter Orb/Vryn Wingmare/Baird, Steward of Argive/Magus of the Tabernacle/Lodestone Golem.

Then second because of that same factor of mana I would just suggest since your already running 30 basics just switch them to snow lands run an Extraplanar Lens and add a Scrying Sheets to consistently filter out lands and not waste draws.

One last thing since your mono white and doing boardwipes I have to recommend one of my favorite cards of all time Scourglass amazing art and its genuinely a good card, good luck! hope these suggestions help in some way, let me know if you have any questions about any of them

In making my Sygg, Tollfolk and Governor-Goddess Ephara Decks, I became very interested in turn-related effects, and that inspire this card, as well as Klothys, God of Destiny, who switches the way usually work, whereas most Gruul cards use green's might to accomplish red's free spirit, She uses Red's fury to express nature's law which green cares about.

Based on (Gerðr)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ger%C3%B0r] in Kaldheim.


Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter

Legendary Snow Creature - God

Protection from instants

You may cast Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter

Whenever a player casts a spell at a time they couldn't cast a sorcery, that player loses 5 life.

At the beginning of your endstep, if you cast no spells this turn, search your library for a card, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it and you gain 5 life.

2/10


This deck would use Eidolon of Rhetoric, Rule of Law, Curse of Exhaustion, Ethersworn Canonist, Oppression, Uba Mask, Tainted AEther, Desolation, Angelic Arbiter, Nullstone Gargoyle, and Painful Quandary effects to force my opponents to make difficult decisions. Bloodchief Ascension, Strionic Resonator, etc. would also give you more advantage from this ability.

Tax effects, like Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Trinisphere, Lodestone Golem, Trinisphere, Nether Void, Glowrider, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Spelltithe Enforcer, Chancellor of the Annex and Feroz's Ban

Decree of Pain, Decree of Justice, Astral Drift, Death Pulse, Dirge of Dread, Eternal Dragon, Gempalm Avenger, Gempalm Polluter, Renewed Faith, Stir the Sands, Sunfire Balm and Abandoned Sarcophagus & Archfiend of Ifnir, also Oketra's Attendant, Undead Gladiator, Bloodsoaked Champion, Dread Wanderer, Nether Spirit, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, Angel of Sanctions,Anointer Priest, Sacred Cat, Dark Depths, Thespian's Stage, Shambling Vent, etc. to avoid 'casting' spells.

grand arbiter synergizes well... yeah...

I'm a stax player who got into the deck because of Death and Taxes, especially Mother of Runes, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Her printing got me into standard/formal play), Gaddock Teeg, and Iona, Shield of Emeria.

I really just made a card I wish existed...


I'd like to see another Kaldheim God!

Azeworai Thank you for the suggestions.

I have definitely considered before Dread Return and Unburial Rites , With this deck I don't usually have many creatures out at once, and I believe that Dread return's flashback may be too costly.

Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare seem very good, however I don't want to go too far into stax, and would rather have just enough to slow my enemies while I can build a decent board state.

I used to have Gonti, Lord of Luxury in this deck, however I felt it underperformed since a lot of the times I wouldn't get something so useful or maybe too expensive for how much mana I would have available, which is why I prefer Mindclaw Shaman , and Gray Merchant of Asphodel serves as another piece for the combo.

As for Gift of Immortality , Grand Coliseum , False Prophet and Sire Of Insanity are very likely being added. Thank you!

Taxes is always an enjoyable archetype. For one person at the table, at least.

For additional subjugation, I'd consider Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare

Dread Return and Unburial Rites can give the deck more reanimation, even when they are milled over.

Gift of Immortality actually goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sacrifice outlet, so that's something to consider.

You have the Reveillark + Karmic Guide loop implemented into the deck, along with Murderous Redcap as a finisher, but Gonti, Lord of Luxury can fulfill the same role of ending the game whilst having more utility on the early turns.

If budget is no concern, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Smuggler's Copter are all fantastic.

For a deck with thirty-five lands, Temple of the False God seems slightly hopeful and inconsistent. You mentioned difficulty with coloured mana in the deck description, so Grand Coliseum could be fine.

False Prophet has always been one of the single strongest cards in my Alesha deck, so I would include it.

At last, Sire Of Insanity can lock down the entire game in your favor. It leaves your opponents out of solid answers for your board and leaves the way to triumph.

That is all, my liege.

For my own decklists on the archetype, here you are if you wish to peruse: Alesha, Grave Engine Within the Confines of Law

Fare thee well and rejoice in crushing them all.
