Isolated Chapel Discussion
1 week ago
Ok, so after playing with this for a bit I have made the following modifications. Removed 2x Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , 3x Disfigure 1x Mountain . Added 4x Knight of the Ebon Legion , 2x Shock and swapped 2x Plains for 2x Isolated Chapel in the mana base to compensate for the earlier black requirement. This was always meant to be an aggro deck to prey on the likes of Wilderness Reclamation so more one drops to start beating earlier seems natural. Disfigure might be a better choice than Shock for its combat trick potential but the added reach and ability to pick off low loyalty plainswalkers have swayed me towards the latter for now.
I have also removed Gideon Blackblade and Mortify from the side board, these were meant to help in the control match-up but I found you don't need them with the speed this deck can kill. I replaced them with a fourth Tocatli Honor Guard and Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded to help against Sulti Dreadhorde matches which I see as the worst match-up and potentially be good in the mono-red match-up.

Hey there. I got to say, I really like your take on this tribe in standard. I tried to make it work back in the day when Rivals came out, was rather casual fun but still fun. ;) (Before that I used the vampire tribe shell with Crested Sunmare shenanigans. Great times.)
There are only a few things I'd like to point out I might do differently here. Probably things you already considered but nontheless here you go.
I very much like the idea of somehow draining the opponent out with Cruel Celebrant but adding it as a four-of seems kinda odd in a aggro deck to me. In this slot I personally would prefere the good ol' Adanto Vanguard . Yeah, I'm aware of the hate she is facing, but still. In a aggro build absolutely mandatory. ;)
Second thing I noticed is that I might play a mix of Icon of Ancestry and Radiant Destiny . Because former seems more like a lategame card and you surely don't want to end up there with an aggro build. HEHE. Maybe I'm just wrong here but maybe even Unbreakable Formation would be an option for this spot. (Or even Pride of Conquerors ?)
Besides that I might cut one plains for an additional Isolated Chapel .
I hope this was of some help to you. I'm seriously considering to go back to full scale vamps for this season. If only the playset of the new Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord wasn't like at least 50 bucks.
Have a good one.

-esper: weak, better if you’re running expensive shock lands
-2 mana confluence? You mean one?
-nephalia: unless mill/discard is popular in our group
-guildgate: I don’t like slowlands in two color decks. I’d legit just replace these with basic lands
Bojuka Bog : graveyard hate
Mistveil Plains : super good recursion
Orzhov Basilica : cool cuz you can use the land you’re gonna return, then play this
Vault of the Archangel : great long game and surprise

A cute idea! +1 from me.
Consider Collected Company since it can grab all your pieces except the Clique itself. You'll also probably want a bit of removal - Fatal Push and Path to Exile are great options in your colors. Mortify , Hero's Downfall , Go for the Throat , and Oblivion Ring are some other, slightly less expensive options if you're operating on a budget.
You'll also definitely want some multicolor lands to ensure you aren't screwed out of a particular color when you need it. If you're on a tight budget, Blossoming Sands , Scoured Barrens , Jungle Hollow , and Sandsteppe Citadel are some real cheap options. A step up from there would be Sunpetal Grove , Fortified Village , Canopy Vista , Temple of Plenty , Isolated Chapel , Temple of Silence , Woodland Cemetery , and Temple of Malady . You don't have to spend all your money on shocks and fetches to have a consistent mana base!
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

After extensive playtesting mardu i can attest with brainpolice 1-3x Midnight Reaper is really strong. Unless it’s a Hero deck.

Hey hkhssweiss! Sorry I've been taking so long to reply, I had some tests I had to study for. Anyway, I edited my deck again and here are the cards I took out:
- Platinum Angel
- Darksteel Forge
- Norn's Annex
- Venser's Journal
- Terramorphic Expanse
- Isolated Chapel
- Forbidden Orchard
- Evolving Wilds
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Azorius Chancery
Cards I put in:
- Expedition Map
- Voltaic Key
- Whispersilk Cloak (To combo with Blightsteel Colossus for a guaranteed hit to someone.)
- Mana Confluence
- Reflecting Pool
- City of Brass
- Hallowed Fountain
- Godless Shrine
- Watery Grave
Hopefully that's good, I'm not exactly sure. I think the mana base is pretty much finished, but I could add in a Rogue's Passage to let my Blightsteel Colossus through, as that is one of the only two win conditions in the deck besides taking their stuff. Is the deck finished, or would it be good to add in things like Mystical Tutor , Cryptic Command , Authority of the Consuls , or Copy Enchantment ?
