Impassioned Orator Discussion

Vlakvark on Creature Life

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

21- Plains 4 - Sungrace Pegasus 4 - Knight of the White Orchid 4 - Aerial Responder 3 - Ajani's Pridemate 3 - Fencing Ace 2 - Stone Haven Medic 2 - Gideon's Company 2 - Twinblade Paladin 2 - Impassioned Orator 4 - Desperate Lunge 4 - Gideon's Reproach 3 - Riot Control 1 - Ajani, Inspiring Leader

Any help would be appreciated; whether cards need to be replaced or maybe even going multi-colored instead of mono white.

I'd suggest you correct the tags to show that this is a Casual deck, not standard. That way people aren't confused when searching for the deck!

Below I've included a few suggestions that might help guide your deck building process:

  • Playing 3/4 copies of a few cards instead of playing 1/2 copies of many cards will help to improve your consistency. This will also aid in determining which synergies you should strive to focus on. For example; if wanting to focus on using life-gain as a means to pump your creatures, I would run 4 copies of Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin type cards, and cut cards that don't work well with them such as Duskborne Skymarcher . A card that I would also include if going this route would be Ajani's Pridemate .

  • When it comes to determining what your deck's focus is, be sure to only include cards that will benefit that plan. For example; following the previously discussed strategy of pumping creatures lends itself well to an aggressive style build. You are looking to attack your opponent each turn, and for that reason your creatures will be tapped more often than not. Due to this, running a card like Sunblast Angel will only work against you. Your opponents will try to leave their creatures untapped to block yours, and when Sunblast Angel enters the battlefield, it may only end up destroying your side of the board. For that reason I would shy away from playing cards like this, regardless of their individual power level. Cards I would suggest instead would be more copies of creatures like Vampire of the Dire Moon or Impassioned Orator , as they provide a means for additional "Whenever you gain life" triggers.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need help with any more changes.

While it doesn't have the said sisters the concept is the same. So the deck type remains the same despite lacking their namesake cards. The soul sisters in this instance would be Impassioned Orator and Ajani's Welcome .
