Increasing Devotion Discussion

mcborkbork on Hush Child

LeaPlath Aetherflux Reservoir and Boon Reflection play off of Anointer Priest and Increasing Devotion imprinted onto Panoptic Mirror and/or Isochron Scepter imprinted with any of the instants, the massive life gain Anointer Priest earns you from pumping out tokens through Increasing Devotion and Isochron Scepter constantly casting spells will give you an reasonable life lead to strike with Aetherflux Reservoir. Nightveil Specter and Sadistic Sacrament provide a way to mill out decks, sending them into exile prevents something like Elixir of Immortality from putting those cards back into play. Chromatic Lantern pairs together with Nightveil Specter to allow our mana to be any color and allow us to use any card in any opponent's deck, that way we're able to use the cards Nightveil Specter exiled. Elixir of Immortality is an extra layer of protection from all the important artifacts getting sent into the graveyard. Hedron Archive is an alternative to Palladium Myr since they're susceptible to spells that destroy creatures. Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a Trespasser's Curse for more spell-heavy decks that don't run many creatures to make Trespasser's Curse a real threat. Lightmine Field is an alternative to Norn's Annex for white decks where the Phyrexian/White mana isn't as much of a threat as decks without white. Path to Exile is for decks that keep pulling creatures from their graveyards. Staff of the Sun Magus is fodder for life gain since Isochron Scepter constantly casts white spells.

Hey mate,

adding these cards. Some nice stuff for Boros. I think we are pretty set on this archetype. Now we just need to settle on Azorius and Simic and then we can start making cuts :)

In human tribal, Devout Chaplain is a premium removal card that gets to repeatedly exile artifacts and enchantments. Gives you something additional to do with your Human Soldier tokens Sigarda creates.

Increasing Devotion churns out Human tokens, but can also be replayed from your graveyard for extra value. When games run long and you're reduced to topdecking, this is a good card to have.

Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip is a strong Human that starts pumping out tokens once you get to flip her. Scales with the number of creatures you control, too.

Hamlet Captain is a pretty nice cheap Human lord in green.

Herald of War makes all your creature spells cost less, and is an evasive flier herself that grows over time.

Odric, Master Tactician creates favorable combat steps, or makes all your defending opponents forced to not block and thereby swing in for lethal damage.

The Mardu Woe-Reaper doesn't seem to help much. The ability can only activate ten time (1 for the 1st (1 life total), two for the second (3 life total), three from the third (6 life total), and four from the fourth (10 life total)), giving you ten life IF you can exile ten creatures from graveyards AND all of them stay alive. I think a better option would be Soul Warden if your looking for life gain. This ability will activate with EVERY creature EVERYONE plays while Mardu Woe-Reaper only activates with warriors. Another option, if you aren't looking for the health, is to put in Frontline Medic. Indestructible is always a nice touch to any army.

While mana expensive, Cathars' Crusade would help grow your creatures. Remember, the creature that enters the battlefield also gets the counters.

If you are looking for ways to spawn humans fast, Gather the Townsfolk can help. It is only at sorcery speed though, so you can't create surprise blockers. Increasing Devotion is another way to spawn humans, but I wouldn't use it. While it looks good, I have a friend who plays with it, and he managed to cast it only a handful of times and flashbacked it once.
