Hyena Umbra Discussion

Madary on Esper Stompy

Agreed. Ive played several rounds against a prowess deck that removed my enchantments using color protections instead of direct removal. Blessing and a totem armor wont help me against that sort of removal. It's why I run Dispel, though, as you pointed out, that's not always effective. I've been thinking about running Turn Aside instead. Though, the Hyena Umbra is a great suggestion. Thanks for commenting.

EDIT:Apostle's Blessing Will not help me. Enchantment removal targets the aura, and not the creature. In the cases where my creature becomes the target and I have to sac an aura, I may be forced to use a color that is shared on my enchantments. I'd lose them all in the process.

Not gonna lie, this deck looks like a pretty good way to get yourself 2 for 1nd. I'd lean on something a little different than dispel with all the sorcery and aura type removal in pauper. Some other cards to consider may be Apostle's Blessing or Hyena Umbra. Cool synergies though, hope you find this comment helpful!

While I understand the concern around Auras I was just thinking about a few equipment/artifacts. I am not telling you to split focus at all. Like I said it is certainly doable to have an aura focused build. However because there are things that mono white Auras cannot do like Trample, Deathtouch, Hexproof/Shroud, and Haste(All of which can be pivotal when focusing on a few creatures), you may want to consider a few equipment. Also there are some Auras like Lifelink, Vigilance, Hyena Umbra, Battle Mastery, Duelist's Heritage, Flickering Ward, Empyrial Armor, Indestructibility, Cage of Hands, and Inviolability that would work very well in this build. Also Ajani's Chosen works quite well also.

I only count 2 uncommons (2x Keen Sense), assuming that the random Artisan of Kozilek is a typo and not actually a card in your deck. Armadillo Cloak is a common.

I might opt for more Gladecover Scout and less Hopeful Eidolon, possibly moving the Eidolon into your sideboard. However, I'm not a Boggles player, so I could be wrong here.

Wild Growth is another option if you want more Utopia Sprawl-esque effects.

Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra might be worth considering.

I'm not a huge fan of cycling lands in aggro decks, since you want to be curving out, not spending time cashing in your lands for extra cards. Again, I could be wrong in this area.

You need to cut 2 cards, though having the random Artisan of Kozilek makes one cut easy.

If you need to get back your Enchantress, Eternal Witness is always a reasonable card.

The problem with Eidolon of Blossoms and Oakheart Dryads is turn 3 and 4 are the turns you want to play your enchantments. Eidolon of Blossoms and Oakheart Dryads are both decent in the deck but you usually want to prioritize the enchantments.

If you wanted to add a second colour I would add white because then you can play Ethereal Armor, Daybreak Coronet, Hyena Umbra and just Path to Exile. If you want to see a non-budget white blue deck like this one there is one on MTG Goldfish here: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/415901#paper

Good morning, steve! ;D

This actually looks interesting. I have some suggestions though: Rancor is a card you should definitely try. Hyena Umbra is very powerful as well. I think.you should also add some kind of black mana production to make stonefare croc worth including. How it is now, it's just a slightly overcosted vanilla.also, and it really hurts to say, but once ixalan releases, Carnage Tyrant fulfills the finisher role way better than behemoth.

Qolorful on Sigarda, Host of Herons EDH

The umbra cards are fantastic for sigarda. She is already really hard to take out with hexproof and anti-sacrifice, making boardwipes and blocking the only way to take her out. Totem armor gives her pseudo-indestructible which makes her a serious pain to deal with, and aside from Descend upon the Sinful and Final Judgement there isn't really a way to remove her at that point

Some good ones to consider are Bear Umbra, Hyena Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Boar Umbra to name a few. There may be some you prefer to those, but those are off the top of my head
