Hope of Ghirapur Discussion

My thoughts on Arcbound Ravager are just above your comment.

Hope of Ghirapur has two functions: First off, it is an inexpensive artifact creature, which can be sacrificed to Arcum. Since the combo relies on consistently having artifact creatures to sacrifice by the time Arcum is able to be activated, this is important.

Also, Hope of Ghirapur is a tool against counter magic. Many times (not always) you can intuit who among the blue players has a counter up, attack them, and sac it, effectively shutting them down and protecting your combo on the turn that you want to either cast Arcum or go off. In that way, it serves the same purpose as Xantid Swarm in legacy storm decks.

I have a quick question: why Hope of Ghirapur? Is it just for the value of preventing spells or is there some synergy Im missing?

Sweet brew! Some cards to consider:

Cathedral Sanctifier over Lone Missionary, maybe -- lowers mana curve

Horizon Canopy

Pilgrim's Eye also seems a bit slow at 3CMC. Maybe there's a 2-drop with a suitable ETB that could replace it?

For SB, Hope of Ghirapur is sweet, recurrable disruption piece against Storm/etc

I have posted the same deck onced before, but never received any support. Hope of Ghirapur is a good card, to prepare for torment.

Yeah makes sense,I like both Sunset Pyramid and Hour of Promise although I couldn't justify losing too many mana dorks because I need something to stall out aggro. I'm also thinking about running some copies of Hope of Ghirapur for UB control what do you think.

Hi SaifurCommander

Ya, you're right!! This is a super AMAZING deck. Thx to Daedalus19876

Try imagine if you cast Gift of Immortality on Hope of Ghirapur then keep whack blue player, or cast it on Kami of False Hope against a heavy creature deck, then look at your opponent's hopeless face.. XD

Sometimes you even can kill all the opponent with commander damage in a single turn by playing Sword of Feast and Famine and Seize the Day

OMG, i'm feel so guilty when i recall back, this deck just gain so much of hated. XD

Sword Point Diplomacy isn't the worst option. Granted, you will probably want to exhaust all the minions in your hand first.

But there is one card in standard that rewards you for drawing any card, even if its land! Kefnet the Mindful. Definitely non meta, but non meta does not mean non viable.

I really dislike Siren Lookout. Do you need it to reliable hit 3 Pirates by turn 4? If not, or if it seems fairly weak in your opinion as well, I recommend a few copies of Hope of Ghirapur as they work well with Favorable Winds

Hall of the bandit king and mirror pool ETB tapped, also Hope of Ghirapur is a commander option.
