Guile

Creature — Elemental Incarnation

Guile can't be blocked except by three or more creatures.

If a spell or ability you control would counter a spell, instead exile that spell and you may play that card without paying its mana cost.

When Guile is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

McToters on Ertai, the Corrupted

Sounds like you're taking this apart, but what are your thoughts on Dovescape + Guile combo. Also, what are your feelings about Intruder Alarm ? Seems like that could work well with Ertai.

Also, I forgot to mention this, but Ethereal Usher is especially important since it fetches either half of the Guile / Dovescape combo.

THE reason to play Dovescape in EDH is the Guile lock, meaning you want enchantment tutors. You've picked an awkward commander to pair with Dovescape , though. If you want to build a UW enchantress deck, Taigam, unlike most other Monks of recent years, doesn't trigger off enchantments. Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest , Tuvasa the Sunlit , and Zur the Enchanter are better enchantment-themed commanders. I see token elements to the deck, as well. Consider Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun or Medomai the Ageless as a commander if you want to beat down. Finally, check out EDHREC. The themes tab at the top right of the main page will give you rec's for tokens, enchantress, pillowfort, whatever.

Killzun Thanks for the comments. I do like Unsubstantiate but I don't think it fits well with my deck. I think it takes up the slot of a spell that I want in the deck. This does absolutely work though. As for Rise from the Tides , I think that it suffers from the problem of not doing anything if there aren't spells in the GY. I personally play with folks who exile and shuffle GY's into libraries and this card will suffer from that. However, if you aren't seeing those things happening in your playgroup this card is great.

Lord_Europa thanks for the compliment! Guile is a great card. Since I do play some counterspell's it will absolutely be a bomb if it were out.

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid I took a look at your deck. Looks great. I think Noyan Dar can be built loads of ways that will work. Mine is absolutely not the end all be all. I just know that it does well and will win out of nowhere. I think the combo card you're looking for is Clockspinning . This absolutely does what you want. I have not play tested it but I know that Ender666666 has based on his deck They see me Roilin', I'm Shapin'....

Ender666666 I have not played it but my buddy does. So are you essentially just exiling one of your animated lands with Vanish into Memory to draw cards and then not discard lands since it just comes back as a land?

okay, here are some "win-cons" I found. you could just go for a big creature like Trench Gorger , Stormtide Leviathan , Aggressive Mammoth , Aurochs Herd , Carnage Tyrant , Child of Gaea , Cloudthresher , Essence of the Wild could be fun, Force of Nature is really big, Frost Titan , Grunn, the Lonely King , Guile , Hydra Broodmaster (this is one of my all time favorites since it was one of my first cards), Nessian Wilds Ravager , Sagu Mauler (a card I wanted to play for a long time but didn't have the right deck for it, but this seems a perfect fit), Terra Stomper (of course, a classic), Gigantosaurus , Primeval Force , Thornling or maybe Vorapede

yes, I went through almost every 5 and 6 cost minion in green and blue. I'm sure there are other cards that could win you the game out there. but this is what I found

you could also use something that is very evasive ofcourse. like Sun Quan, Lord of Wu or Archetype of Imagination . or something different like a combo with Deadeye Navigator , or counter things and make Draining Whelk really big.

triproberts12 on Does this Count as Annoying?

If you put in Dovescape , include Guile , as well, for the combo lock.

(Sry I accidentally hit post on the last comment). I'm not done.

You have no threat of reuse. Most control deck at the very least have Snapcaster Mage or the new Mission Briefing . The power to recast any spell in your graveyard is sooo powerful im not even going to explain. It would take too long. Long story short, you need some. I'm thinking you could drop Vapor Snag for a playset of Snapcaster Mage / Mission Briefing .

You need to rethink your threats and creature count. Guile is fine, but have only one copy doesn't really work. Creating a blockade has always been secondary to control deck. I think you should drop AEtherling and both Detention Sphere for 3 copies of Torrential Gearhulk . Gearhulk gives you better control, a free spell and is just better in general.

Your removal is also EXTREMELY expensive. Particularly, Blessed Light . Path to Exile is probably the best modern-legal removal in the game. My thought are get rid of Blessed Light and Bring to Trial for a playset of it.

Again, creatures don't matter. Which makes Valor Made Real COMPLETELY useless. I'm thinking get rid of that and have 3x copies of Guile .

Suggestions in total: Snapcaster Mage

Torrential Gearhulk

Serum Visions

Mana Leak

Path to Exile

Mission Briefing
