Heliod's Pilgrim Discussion

I like it! I used to play the G/W version of this deck myself, until people started running too many "sac" effects at my LGS :P. Have you considered the Arcanum Wings into Eldrazi Conscription package with Heliod's Pilgrim Support, or is that too clunky?

Sargeras, thanks so much for taking the time to offer critiques!

  1. Unfortunately, as you said Heliod's Pilgrim only gets auras. :(
  2. Aura of Silence is a fantastic idea, and I think I'll even put two in the main, since they both work with Starfield of Nyx to Naturalize every turn if there aren't any other enchantments to bring back.
  3. Nyx-Fleece Ram probably wouldn't get hit by creature removal, but even still I don't know that I can use a card that doesn't actually answer anything. What about using Call the Bloodline as another win con that also gains life? Or should I use the orzhov manland?
  4. What would Story Circle and Rule of Law be good against? I'm not too familiar with the modern metagame (hmm, I guess I'll look it up on some websites)
  5. Sigil seems too expensive for an effect that I have to cast other spells to get advantage out of. It's definitely an idea, but it seems a bit slow in theory.
  6. Blind Obedience would be another way to gain life, but is the fact that it is a worse Ghostly Prison a problem? I feel like anything Blind Obedience does, Ghostly Prison does better (except for the lifegain), so is the lifegain worth it?

Thanks again!

Oops, forgot that Heliod's Pilgrim only tutors auras (Sometimes we all need to read more)

Mesa Enchantress could work as another draw engine if needed, and Open the Vaults can bring it all back if you face a deck like Stompy that has Back to Nature in it's sideboard.

Interesting take on Enchantment Toolbox, so +1 from me. Here's my suggestions.

  1. Take Dark Confidant out of your sideboard, you are already playing 4 Phyrexian Arena in the maindeck, and with this many tutors, I doubt you'll need it (It'll likely kill you, much faster then the arenas) I think something like Heliod's Pilgrim would be much better since you can bring it in to tutor for cards like Ghostly Prison in aggressive matchups.

  2. I would say that Aura of Silence should find it's way into the sideboard, because while Nevermore works well with cards that aren't in play, this deck doesn't have an answer to something like Ensnaring Bridge that's already in play.

  3. Since you are playing 4 arenas, I'd say you might want to find some room for Nyx-Fleece Ram, since it counteracts the lifeloss so you don't lose to your own arenas.

  4. If you want some good options for other sideboard cards (I don't know if you need them) are Rule of Law and Story Circle.

  5. I don't know how consistent you are with Ascensions, but Sigil of the Empty Throne could be a possibility as well.

  6. Blind Obedience could also be fun as a one-of way to beat combos like Saheeli Rai or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

These are my suggestions, take from them what you will.

Gadianten on Divine Machinations (Cleric Tribal)

2 weeks ago

In: Dusk / Dawn, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Anointed Procession, High Priest of Penance, Angelic Accord, Luminarch Ascension, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Arashin Cleric and Temple Acolyte

Out: True Conviction, Reliquary Monk, Devout Chaplain, Test of Endurance, Austere Command, Ancestor's Prophet, Alhammarret's Archive, Beacon of Immortality, Heliod's Pilgrim and Gift of Immortality

Got rid of Test of Endurance and Beacon of Immortality since my current combo tends to make it redundant. Ancestor's Prophet always seemed to disappoint since by the time I could activate him I had either won or lost.Alhammarret's Archive seemed like a win more kind of card in the deck and I was unable to always get value out of it. Devout Chaplain and Reliquary Monk got seldom if any use. Gift of immortality tended to be difficult to set up quickly enough to matter. I am not sure about Austere Command but wanted to test Dawn/Dusk.

I have attempted to increase the decks token generating theme and increase gain life ETB's to hopefully improve pre combo game play. I have also added more spot removal as I face Kalia often.

Visage_EDH on Karador Multiplayer Boonweaver Combo/Control

3 weeks ago

Straight up replacing Boonweaver, Hulk is a perfect fit. It doesn't need much work around except for small interactions that might be useful in niche scenarios (such as fetching Grand Abolisher, a sac outlet via Viscera Seer / Carrion Feeder, and Heliod's Pilgrim fetching Animate Dead; this play can work around interaction completely but costs an additional 1B to run, and in personal preference, Heliod's Pilgrim isn't justifiable in this list)

As for the name, if I recall correctly, there was a list called KaraHulk on the 1v1 French Commander listings over at MTGTop8.com
