Intellectual Offering Discussion

billium813 on Gwafa the Generous

4 days ago

I built a Gwafa deck awhile back that was all about theme. It wasnt very good, lol but it had some strong cards and oozed with style and theme ;) You can take a look here: Mind tricks don't work on me. Only money.

Creatures:Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Silent Arbiter, Archangel of Tithes

These creatures are great for what they do in pillow fort style decks and are also great theme cards! Thada is good at taking a look through your opponents deck and exiling artifact combo cards (or just steal your opponents Sol Ring and whatnot). Arbiter and Archangel both slow the game down or keep pressure off you.

Other stuff:Sphere of Safety, Trading Post, Avarice Totem, Intellectual Offering, Vow of Flight, Vow of Duty

I think a deck with all the charms in it is an awesome idea. Ramos is an amazing commander as well.

Naturalize seems redundant as you have a bunch of charms to get rid of artifacts and enchantments.

Maelstrom Archangel is good but underwhelming as you have very few cards with CMC 6 or higher.

Harmonize is great for decks that don't have blue. However, you do have blue. so I recommend you take advantage of that and run some of the amazing blue card draw spells since you will have tons of mana. There are a bunch of budget options as well. These include but are not limited to: Foresee, Rush of Knowledge, Intellectual Offering (mostly for all the signets getting to untap), Treasure Cruise, plenty of others as well.

Dark Ritual seems very weak in this deck. Your running 5 colors for one so three black doesn't help a lot. Plus with Ramos, you will generate a lot of mana if you replace it with something that has more colors.

The deck seems to be lacking ways to abuse Ramos' ability or to even win for that matter. Door to Nothingness is perfect for Ramos, but if it's your only (or at least MAIN) way of winning then you should add in whatever tutors you can afford to make sure you get it. Having that much mana available means you should consider adding in some big beaters and high costing spells. Insurrection, Exsanguinate, Time Stretch, Army of the Damned, and any of the big Eldrazi are some of my favorite high-cost cards to play.

overall a very cool deck with a ton of answers to your opponents but seems left with very little in terms of winning. I would recommend adding higher CMC cards that have brutal or game-winning effects, then use Ramos, Maelstrom Archangel or even all your mana rocks to cast them fast.

NayrSlayer on Narset, Friend of planeswalkers

A nice start to an interesting deck. I do have a few recommendations to make this deck a bit more powerful.

First off, in Superfriends decks nowadays, you usually want to be running Teferi, Temporal Archmage for instant speed Planeswalker abilities and Deepglow Skate to double your counters.

Next, I would recommend changing Benevolent Offering, Intellectual Offering, Oath of Chandra, and Mizzium Mortars for some more high impact cards. The Offering cards (not including Volcanic) are good for "grouphug" decks, but might be problematic in giving your opponents fuel to get rid of your Planeswalkers. Oath of Chandra is generally underwhelming even if you are casting Planeswalkers every turn and could be replaced by a better card to cast for free. For Mizzium Mortars (and every card with overload or awaken), you unfortunately cannot cast it for its overload if you get it exiled with Narset (check for the rulings, if you want to know why)

For some other cards to put in, there are a few more extra turn spells that you could use like Part the Waterveil and Walk the Aeons (and you can pay the buyback cost as you cast it from Narset). Additionally, cards like World at War can allow you to get more cards off of Narset in a turn. Also, Propaganda might be a good include.

With all of this being said, I absolutely love this deck and hope to try it out with my own little spin on it (especially with Tibalt). Best of luck!

You look like the type of guy who wants to be holding all the cards and always have a trick up their sleeve. Here are a few solid and flavorful options for your deck. Illusionist's Gambit, Reins of Power, Bribery, Acquire, Grip of Phyresis, Intellectual Offering, Sower of Temptation, and Treachery.
