Icbrgr on Turbo fog

I think Pollen Lullaby would be more effective than Batwing Brume in mono white turbofog; is the lifeloss worth it? or is the idea just to possibly win via ridiculous alpha swing from the opponent?.... cuz then you can swap those Isolated Chapel s for other lands like Reliquary Tower / Mikokoro, Center of the Sea or even Buried Ruin .

As for some sideboard tech for various matchups I would consider Rebuff the Wicked as a means to protect your Isochron Scepter from Assassin's Trophy and such... Nevermore for combo pieces... Pithing Needle for planswalkers... Oblivion Ring for stray nonland permanants (honestly good enought to consider mainboarding a few copies for planswalkers and other non aggro threats)... Rule of Law for storm.... and obligatory gravyard hate with Grafdigger's Cage

BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.

Removal spells like Mortify , Unmake , Anguished Unmaking , Silence the Believers , and Declaration in Stone are all fantastic and I would recommend them over murder or avenging arrow any day.

Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.

I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.

I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.

You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .

Hope this was at least a little helpful!

Isolated Chapel ? Might be a bit better for you instead of Caves of Koilos , just so you're not pinging yourself. Since it's only to flashback Lingering Souls I guess it's not the hugest deal.

I know you're budget, but if you get your hands on some Anointed Procession s, your deck will be so nasty. If you do, I'd suggest taking out Moonsilver Spear because it is too slow for modern. Four to cast then four more to equip is a lot, and the time and mana spent to cast it could be spent on Anointed Procession and other utility. Imagine sacrificing Promise of Bunrei while having Anointed Procession out, that's 8 spirit tokens right there!

Also, your deck has no removal. I'm not sure how important the lifegain aspect of this deck is to you, but I would highly recommend cutting Ajani's Welcome for budget removal like Condemn . Anything to control your opponents board is a must in modern.

Regardless, very solid deck and looks really fun to play!

Maybe take out the Orzhov Guildgate for Isolated Chapels? Also, not a big fan of Ajani in this list. You don't have as many 1 and 2 drops a deck like Boros Weenie does, and pumping up your guys, only to have them get sacrificed is a bit redundant, IMO. Maybe Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip for more card draw or Find / Finality for recursion (you can cast Find by just paying )?

Your deck can't really be that consistent, since you run so few 4x, I suspect that's what you are perceiving as it being slow. That being said Pillory of the Sleepless over One Thousand Lashes and Grasp of Darkness over Executioner's Swing would be a start. Lands might be boring, but they are some of the most important cards in your deck, in order: Isolated Chapel == Concealed Courtyard -> Temple of Silence -> Orzhov Guildgate -> Evolving Wilds and that is just the budget options. Short version change Evolving Wilds to Orzhov Guildgate. You should probably consider adding Chalice of Life  Flip, but the space for that is dependent on what you do with your creatures, basically though that covers non-creatures...

Creature wise I have two not in your deck to recommend Lone Rider  Flip and Divinity of Pride, the Rider is brutal in a life-gain deck and Divinity ends games if not answered. You need to do something to make the creatures more consistent, try to pick five of them and run 4x of each, preferably scaled in mana cost, for example: 4x Soul Warden, 4x Lone Rider  Flip, 4x Vampire Nighthawk, 4x Rhox Faithmender, 4x Divinity of Pride. I'd probably have a setup something like that, but feel free to choose your own bodies... The point is choose the best bodies you can and run them in such a way that they are more likely to be in your hand. I hope this is of help, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage on Human Sacrifice (Need Help Improving!)

This deck seems perfect for Westvale Abbey  Flip, humans , sacrifice and a demon at the end of it... As does Zulaport Cutthroat, those little incremental gains and loses can make a difference. You also need better lands, even in a budget deck, maybe Concealed Courtyard, Isolated Chapel or Temple of Silence could help ensure your mana base. Hope this was of help, good luck brewing your deck.

multimedia on Ertai says "No" Huge Changes

4 weeks ago

Hey, looks good. I don't see very many decks with Ertai as Commander.

Cards based on your budget to consider adding:

Reveillark and Guide can loop each other and reanimate a lot of creatures including Lullmage Mentor, getting value from reanimated creatures and then they can be used as fodder to counter your opponent's spells.

Reveillark reanimation targets:

Thief, Zur and Auramancer interact with enchantments. Thief steals all your opponents enchantments which you can then sac to counter spells. Zur can be a repeatable way to get enchantments, best of all he can search for Alarm.

Other cards to consider:

Most of these other suggestions are cards that can give you repeatable creature value, are discard outlets or enablers to get cards into the graveyard, enchantments that give you draw value when they are saced and budget lands that can/or always ETB untapped.

I offer more advice on what you can cut for some of these cards. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.
