Holy Strength Discussion

5dollarMTG on $5 Budget Birds

1 year ago

I'd be curious if anyone knows of other cheap noncreature cards that feature birds in the artwork (cards like Holy Strength, Recumbent Bliss, and Trial of Knowledge).

Can Mycosynth Lattices effect affect your graveyard?


Icbrgr on Old art for Unuoly Strength

1 year ago

@cdkime lol yeah that compare/contrast really does make the art nonsensical... Glad that they eventually gave it the art we see today Unholy Strength especially with the ying-yang concept with Holy Strength.

For starters, I would drop all 'protection' stuff (with the exception of Baneslayer Angel). I know wards, scarabs and circles look useful, but they are not. The wards and scarabs only affect single creatures and will only help against a single color at a time. This means in multiplayer games, in which often enough you will face all MTG colors simultaneously, these will not help very much. Circles on top of that, are also very mana intensive to use. Especially against token decks, they become effectively useless.

If you would drop these, along with some of the other aura's that are not all that useful (examples are Holy Strength, Spirit Link and Daybreak Coronet), you could make room for 10 new cards.

Also, please note that there are now two Akroma, Angel of Wrath's in this deck. This is not allowed, so you need to get rid of one.

I would also recommend you take a good look at the cards I have suggested and compare them with the non-Angel creatures in this deck and decide for yourself which creatures would augment your strategies better. If it were me, I would use that list to make another 8-10 replacements.

Hope any of this helps. Happy gaming!

With kind regards,

A few more:

Some of the Aftermath card art is paired too. Like Cut / Ribbons, Heaven / Earth, Prepare / Fight, Destined / Lead and Insult / Injury (apparently Minotaur breath is really bad).

Finally, though it's not really a pair, Krenko's Command takes place in the background of Krenko, Mob Boss.

My Google-Fu has failed me so I apologize if this question has been asked here before but I've been unable to find any answers. What I'm looking for is matched pairs of art.

Examples include Essence Warden and Soul Warden

The M10 versions of Holy Strength and Unholy Strength

Live Fast and Die Young

Anyone else have any other examples?

Thanks for the comment, upvote, and love!

Riftmarked Knight does have a good duality to him, but no idea on what to take out. He would also remove the balance of white and black mana symbols in the deck. Holy Strength, Unholy Strength, and Edge of the Divinity will go in. Also Dark Favor and Divine Favor will find a way in.

hahaha Wake the Reflections would be great. You have made me decide to create an EDH deck with this theme.

You have an awesome day as well!

What an awesome theme! I love it!I think Riftmarked Knight has the right sort of duality to him.Holy Strength and Unholy Strength, I feel, have a very mirrored and exalted feel to them.You wouldn't be able to put it on most of your creatures, but Edge of the Divinity has that balanced feel to it too.

And now, a joke: Wake the Reflections. But if you put in some things that generate knight tokens, like Gideon's Phalanx, Knightly Valor, or Sorin, Grim Nemesis, you might jst get something out of it :)

Have an awesome day!
