Impassioned Orator Discussion

I would think about including as many Soul Sisters as possible: Anointer Priest, Soul Warden, Impassioned Orator, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest and maybe Answered Prayers. These will gain you a lot of time. There is also lump life gain like Conclave Phalanx and Dwarven Priest that work very well with all your blink effects. Peach Garden Oath is also a pretty amazing common. These creatures could easily replace many of your filler creatures, like Ancestral Statue (doesn't provide enough advantage for the cost), Aven Skirmisher, Devoted Hero, Kor Outfitter, Leonin Elder, Savannah Lions and Segovian Angel.

In your lands, you could be running a lot more non-basics to help you out. All the cycling lands, Secluded Steppe, Drifting Meadow and Desert of the True, are great options for filtering through your deck. Other good options are Idyllic Grange, Kabira Crossroads, Radiant Fountain, Remote Farm and Sejiri Steppe.

I hope some of this was helpful!

If you are running Felidar Soverign than you will also want to run Test of Endurance. Aetherflux Resivoir is a great card that can gain you a ton and help shoot down opponents. Check out all of the Ajani planswalker cards if you can afford them but especially Ajani, Strength of the Pride. Ajani's Welcome, Auriok Champion, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Healer of the Pride, Impassioned Orator, and Pious Evangel  Flip can all be extra copies of Soul Warden. You have a lot of untapped potential in the landbase (pun intended) and it wouldn't hurt to replace some of those Plains with other cards that you can get extra value from. Drifting Meadow, Desert of the True, and Secluded Steppe can all replace themselves for a card if you draw them late game. Myriad Landscape can help ramp you, and Rogue's Passage is a great way of getting extra damage through. Idyllic Grange can get you one extra counter, Castle Ardenvale and Westvale Abbey  Flip can both pump out creatures if you lacking some, and lastly Buried Ruin and Emeria, The Sky Ruin can get back cards from the graveyard. The deck looks fun to play and functions pretty well. Let me know if you want to suggest more cards, these were just a few off the top of my head!

[EDIT] After some testing in ranked standard, I found that Linden, the Steadfast Queen is a very powerful card in synergy whith Heliod, Sun-Crowned. I definitely got enought removal with 2 Banishing Light, 2 Murderous Rider and 2 Pacifism. Now as it is, this deck can win turn 4 or 5.

Changes :

If you feel something's not right, feel free to tell me! :)

Thanks!

i would possibly swap the numbers around on Justice Strike and Chandra's Triumph . Or maybe even remove the whole Chandra's Triumph + Chandra, Acolyte of Flame package and replace it with something else. Fry

Heliod, Sun-Crowned is very good!! Try and add another one of them if you can. Perhaps try and get the new Daxos, Blessed by the Sun instead of Impassioned Orator .

For removal, the Lava Coil is good, but also try and get Banishing Light or Dreadful Apathy instead of Pacifism - they just better value.

And look for the shock lands rather than the guilgates. You are semi-aggro so want to be fast.

Is this for Best of 1, then you can even think of increasing the number of cards up to 75 (main + side) all in one, as they do that. If BO3, then no.

What is your plan for an opponent that goes wide (lots of creatures)?? You maybe need some sort of mini board-wipe - just to stabilise the board a bit... The new Shatter the Sky is an option, Solar Blaze , Flame Sweep .

Tibalt, Rakish Instigator perhaps for the mirror lifegain deck.

Cards you don't have:

- Soul's Attendant

- Soul Warden

Cards we do:

- Impassioned Orator

- Daxos, Blessed by the Sun

- Ajani's Welcome

Soul warden and Serra Ascendant are legal in historic (historic anthology 1) however Walking Ballista is not.

Cool deck. I run something similar and have been having a lot of success in Arena Grixis Fires.

I also have trouble with Calamity decks, but if I draw my Flame Sweep s I'm usually ok. Ajani's Pridemate also gives me problems with Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Impassioned Orator , but Ritual of Soot has helped with that.

Love the deck! (upvoted :D) A couple suggestions:

Replace Mind's Eye for Bygone Bishop and Healer of the Pride for Impassioned Orator

One land (maybe a Plains?) for Deserted Temple (to combo with Nykthos)

I'd also put in Secure the Wastes as one way to help close out the game (maybe take out True Conviction ?)

You might also want to take out a few of your 5+cmc cards and run a few protection effects to protect your board state. My fav are: Benevolent Bodyguard Brave the Elements Emerge Unscathed Teferi's Protection Shelter Selfless Spirit .

For card draw, you can put in a couple more equipment tutors for Skullclamp , like Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , Relic Seeker or Quest for the Holy Relic
