Hushwing Gryff Discussion

TaegukTheWise on Howl at the Roon

1 day ago

The problem you find with any Roon deck is that they are durdle nauts. Roon can be exceedingly fun against slower decks.

Now I have a couple of issues with this list, even though you took it apart. Cards like Ghostly Flicker can be real duds, especially on an empty board state, I recommend to go creature heavy so there is no whiffing, or add more counterspells. There are also creatures that bounce things when they enter the battlefield. so you don't need unsubstanate in a creature deck, nor that many instants or sorceries and take our rite of replication, this is a blink deck, not a control shell. This deck also has nothing to stop Torpor Orb, no naturalize, or krosan grip, aura shards can't save you once that or Hushwing Gryff enters play. Farhaven elf is really good in a deck with more basics, if you are running cards that fetch for basics then play more, 6 to 7 of each are my numbers for a 3 color deck, and since you have that Eldrazi displacer put in at least 3 to 4 wastes, so then you can get full use, along with thinning your deck and playing around blood moon. Did you also know that Derevi is a good addition in this deck as well? Trinket mage has no place here, in a cheerios style deck with 1 to 0 cost artifacts I would say yes, but it only searches for one card that, if you have fetched enough basics its even better than sol ring. And there are plenty of new cards to make this deck better if you so wished to rebuild it. Panharmonicon, Felidar Guardian (which would replace the threat in limited known as flickerwisp) Ashnod's Altar is a must if you have karmic guide and reviellark. Oh, and add Minion Reflector for shenanigans! :)

I know your deck is basically dead, but I figured to at least give some suggestions.

GregariousG on Please Ban Torpor Orb

Thanks everyone for the comments and input. It's been awhile since I've been able to sit down, update the deck, and answer some questions.

To Penthoplayer,

    Originally, I was kinda against using Protean Hulk. However, this card and the cards that support it are just to silly not to play.

To Magnivore,

    My experience as a Tron player has taught me to fetch for a forest early if I see a red player. Torpor Orb-effects don't really bug me that much. Caustic Caterpillar is for Torpor Orb and I added some non-creature removal for Hushwing Gryff and Tocatli Honor Guard. These types of effects also hinder other players so I won't be the only one trying to remove them. However, your comment inspired me to lower my curve to a reasonable level

I would suggest that you add in more pillowfort enchantments, because, well, you're bound to get pummeled in the face sooner or later. Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Koskun Falls, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, Collective Restraint, Dissipation Field, No Mercy, Aurification, and Peacekeeper all work. One nice combo you can run is Energy Field + Rest in Peace (You can no longer take damage as long as those enchantments remain on the field).

If you're aiming for a more oppressive control deck, you also can throw in Fatespinner, Frozen AEther, Blind Obedience, Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, Iona, Shield of Emeria (especially funny when you're playing against a monocolor deck), Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Indulgent Tormentor, Painful Quandary, Angelic Arbiter... I could go on and on and on.

I'm not sure about the status of your playgroup, but I also would suggest sweepers like Cataclysm, Tragic Arrogance, Mutilate, Cyclonic Rift, basically any sweeper that says "Sacrifice", "Bounce" or "-X/-X" to account for cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope.

Hello fellow Team Pickle member! Hushwing Gryff is the perfect bear hatin card for this deck. You got little to none ETB effects compared to other decks featuring in cla's meta. Also, it has flash - virtual haste - swinging and carrying equipment in the following turn. The same is true for Aven Mindcensor, which shuts down Trakinas's deck by half, if not more - gaining us at least an hour per game. keep up

Against Aggro/ Blink (Prossh, Brago, etc.) Torpor Orb and Hushwing Gryff.

Control and Combo hate Aven Mindcensor.

Also, Rest in Peace hoses GY decks and if you run that you might as well run Helm of Obedience (mill combo).The two Thalias are also pretty good, but not for every meta. And Stony Silence can be powerful of you know how and when to use it.

  1. The wincon with Wanderwine Prophets involve taking multiple turns off the player with no blockers until they are dead. Does the table usually concede given that you will have built up your board and most likely draw/tutored into your combo?

  2. I changed Into the Roil to Reality Shift last night. You are right and I am overreacting to a Hushwing Gryff wrecking my game last night.

  3. You are probably right about Vandalblast. I am going to note the times I cast Vandalblast and want it to be By Force.

  4. Chain of Vapor makes every competitive deck list playing blue that I have seen. I looked at it for this deck. I worry in a slower combo deck like ours that opponents will take advantage of the sacrifice a land clause to hit our board. Am I off base?

This list perform very well even in a 1vs1 (+1 for me!)...But I'm thinking about other ways to discard cards. e.g. If i play against a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon player, I will found myself with a lot of dead cards: Choke, Contamination, Carpet of Flowers. Maybe i've presented the worst scenario, but you know... it's a possible scenario. Have you considered to run Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff to turn off the nasty interactions of Pestermite and similar with your Winter Orb? End of your turn. Opponent casts Pestermite and tap Winter Orb. He untaps all of his lands. Aaaand most important question: How do you make the way to Tana, the Bloodsower to dealt damage to the opponent? Yes, Fire Covenant is a blast, but i'm also thinking to Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist.

Jimmy_Chinchila N4kk1 please keep it civil. I don't think Hushwing Gryff would be too great as my deck would probably be more vulnerable to it than my opponents with 4 Dwynen's Elite, 3 Elvish Visionary, and 4 Shaman of the Pack. Appreciate the suggestion though :)
