Into the North Discussion
1 day ago
Thank you very much for the big reply! You make some great points, all witch I agree with. I looked into Genesis Wave before reading your reply, and now i feel very stupid for not getting its role! :) What a fantastic card for this deck.
I will check out your reddit comments while continuing to adjust my deck! I am going for a lower power level build to fit my playgroup, so I'm making it a straight up burn deck, with a bunch of ridiculous sorcery and instant spells that aims at making fun gameplay moments, (like Chain of Acid, and Avoid Fate). Because of the lack of permanents I unfortunately don't think Genesis Wave works very well in my deck. :/
I also decided not to go for fetches because of its anti-synergy with Scrying Sheets and other cards in my build (Lost in the Woods and Rowen). I added Into the North to add consistency to Scrying Sheets. However, I do agree with you, that playing fetches is the objectively better choice. When my deck is finally collected I will let you know how the snow covered land package is preforming!
Sincerely, Mr. Bob Johnson

Nicely done! This is one of the best Gishath decks I've seen. There are some similarities with my own Gishath deck haha. I have a few suggestions that I think could add something to yours.
Worldly Tutor is tailor made for the Gishath deck as a cheaper version of Congregation at Dawn. I like it because I can sometimes play it on the same turn as I play Gishath, unlike Congregation. Worldly Tutor and Congregation are both great cards though, and redundant here in a productive way. I usually grab Zetalpa, Primal Dawn because it's such a board presence with Indestructible. Maybe cut Zendikar Resurgent because it's expensive to cast, requires casting creatures to draw cards, and you've already got Mirari's Wake and Regal Behemoth.
I dunno what else you would cut but I gotta tell ya, Tooth and Nail for Xenagos, God of Revels and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight with Gishath, Sun's Avatar is really freaking insane. Throw in some double strike and game over. Game over.
On a cheaper note, I cut all my Signets in favor of more 2 mana ramp spells for Mirari's Wake, Zacama, Primal Calamity, and Regal Behemoth. You could still add Farseek (do it), Into the North, and Khalni Heart Expedition. Coalition Relic has been my most valuable mana rock.
Anyway, awesome job! Keep it up.

If flyers aren't a problem then they're probably an opportunity :) Just saying. Aurelia, the Warleader is 6 mana, not 8, but I see your meaning. For Aurelia and Gisela, I wouldn't consider their toughness a liability though. Just don't block with them or attack someone who can block and kill them. Usually it's pretty easy to find someone to attack with Aurelia because she's Flying.
OH! I just realized that you don't have Regal Behemoth on your list! It's been errata'd as a dinosaur! I opted for land ramp instead of the Signets in order to maximize the potential for Regal Behemoth, Mirari's Wake, Temple of the False God, Khalni Heart Expedition, and Zacama, Primal Calamity. You could still add Sakura-Tribe Elder, Nature's Lore, and Into the North if you want more 2 mana land ramp. Explosive Vegetation is also a great option for 4 mana.

Changed all basic lands to "snow-covered" lands for Into the North

Also how are you doing? I haven't seen you in a long while.

You have no snow lands in this deck, Into the North will not be useful.
I would suggest Dragonlord's Servant

what about Into the North? I mean just turn 6-8 lands in your deck into snow forests and maybe even add some utility snow lands like Scrying Sheets that lets you scry for forests if you have all your forests as snow forests or even creatures if you add Centaur Omenreader for example!

I see where you are coming from. I'm going to be honest, I forget all the time about the Talismans, but I agree with your argument. I think I'll replace Into the North with Talisman of Unity and swap Arctic Flats with something like Ancient Tomb.
I'll try out Mom in place of Archetype and Mangara in place of green Myojin in my next couple of games to see how they run. I like Mangara and want to run him, but I've been trying to figure out what to take out in his place. What would you suggest to make room for Swords or Path? I guess I can try it in place of a tutor? What would you swap for Avacyn's Pilgrim? I run Bloom Tender and Priest of Titania because they often tap for more than 1 mana. I guess I could replace Sac-Elder?
I'm going to try out a couple of other changes I've been meaning to try as well, like Stonecloaker in place of Scooze, since it plays better with Paradox Engine.
