Ivory Mask Discussion

HOPMONSTER on Augustin's $t4ks (4000$ Solution/Stax)

2 weeks ago

Crazy awesome deck. I don't know much about playing stax, but this looks oppressive. My concern looking at it would be that with a lot of cheap spells and a commander who makes them cheaper, wouldn't you want more card draw to keep you rolling through the deck?

The only card suggestions I could think of that might be somewhat relevant to your deck are: Ivory Mask, Karmic Justice, Open the Vaults, Linvala, Keeper of Silence.


Xica on How to overcome 8-Rack

2 weeks ago

One option is blowing up their Ensnaring Bridge and racing them, after all that card is the biggest asset of the deck.
However doing so is problematic since you need to draw into it, as bridge wont be on the field before turn 3 and they will try to strip the answers out of your hand.
To combat this tactic the best is to use artifact destruction that is useful when not in hand Ancient Grudge, Seal of Primordium, Qasali Pridemage, Torch Fiend are all good answers for it (in this order), while being good against other matchups that rely on artifacts.

Plan B is to just hate on the fact that many of their discard spells need a "target player" - otherwise the 8 racks would punish them just as much as you.
Here is the selesction of cards that offer this effect in modern: Leyline of Sanctity, Witchbane Orb, Ivory Mask, Imperial Mask, Orbs of Warding, Aegis of the Gods, True Believer, Sigarda, Heron's Grace

It really depends on your budget, but if it isn't an issue, then definitely run Leyline of Sanctity over Ivory Mask if you can afford it. Banishing Light will up your Oblivion Ring count to 8.

So much ramp, and nothing to spend it on? I have a good suggestion for you for all that ramp: Enduring Ideal. Then every turn you can just fetch out your answers.

I'd up the heralds to 4. They cheapen everything in your deck.

Good luck!

There's always the Murderous Redcap, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Phyrexian Altar, but that uses the yard too.

Ivory Mask, Orbs of Warding, or Witchbane Orb will protect against yard hate like Tormod's Crypt, Relic of Progenitus, leyline, et al.

You have no way of winning besides decking them, and there is just a better "mill prison" deck in the form of Lantern. You would be better off trying to do something like Nahiri+Emrakul or a walker like that, as it would take up less space and give your more options.

Why Ivory Mask and not Leyline of Sanctity? Why Suppression Field when your win con is literally all activated abilities?

DevoidMage on What prison deck should I ...

Unfortunately you really need Ensnaring Bridge, Mox Opal, and Surgical Extraction to make the deck work properly, and those are all quite expensive pieces.

Mono white is likely the cheapest you can build a prison with.

Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Suppression Field, Story Circle, Nevermore, Oblivion Ring, Ivory Mask, Rule of Law...

Enchantress might be a decent option to look into for your first iteration as it's reasonably budget. It's not a total prison but it does use the disruptive elements so that it can set itself up. The MTGSalvation primer is also a good place to start.

Blard on King of the Junk Pile

Nice deck. Definitely +1. I prefer Tormod's Crypt against dredge and decks like that though.Rest in Peace also works. Lastly, if you have trouble against burn Leyline of Sanctity is always good. If you want more budget Ivory Mask works but this deck already isn't very budget.

Ja1n on Ayli's good stuff

You mentioned a heavy reanimate theme but I don't see Reanimate, Animate Dead, Unburial Rites and Necromancy. Stinkweed Imp can help you get more guys in the yard too.

Would definitely recommend adding in some 'pillow forty' cards. No Mercy, Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety are all good candidates. Check out Oversold Cemetery and Tortured Existence too for recurring creature recycling. Ivory Mask can help if you find people are targeting your graveyard. BW has many great enchantments to protect yourself and I would recommend including some more. Academy Rector and Idyllic Tutor can help with consistency, but an enchantment toolbox could help protect what you are doing. Vindicate is less pricey following it's reprint and Utter End is a great card too. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a great land in reanimator style decks with white, as is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers. Last but not least, consider Iona, Shield of Emeria, Rune-Scarred Demon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Angel of Despair as some great reanimator targets.

Deck seems a little unfocused and I think you could benefit from focusing on the specific theme. Some cards like Dark Ritual and the planeswalkers feel either redundant or not as impactful as you would like. I also think, if you're going reanimator, try running Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter as the general while removing the life gain aspect for cards like Bloodghast and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. The lifegain just seems like a sub-theme.

Since you have Buried Alive, you can do some cool stuff with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Conspiracy, cards like Crib Swap and a knights package such as Silverblade Paladin and Knight-Captain of Eos.

Just some suggestions, hope that helps!
