Justiciar's Portal Discussion

king-saproling on Aurelia's Angelic crusade

1 week ago

Cards like Cloudshift , Ephemerate , Justiciar's Portal , Flicker , and Acrobatic Maneuver are pretty cool with Aurelia because they can be used for protection.. or for extra combats! After the first combat, flicker Aurelia. She re-enters as a new object that has not attacked yet this turn, so when she attacks during the second combat you will get a third combat, and so on. Better yet, these spells can be fished out with Sunforger. Eldrazi Displacer works in a similar way but is a bit more restrictive: you would need to activate the Displacer's ability in response to Aurelia's attack trigger so that her trigger will resolve last and untap her. Aurelia won't deal damage, but all your other creatures will get additional combats for every spent.

Aurelia is so rad. My girlfriend plays an Aurelia deck and it can explode out of nowhere. You might like these: Gratuitous Violence , Berserkers' Onslaught , True Conviction , Chance for Glory , Final Fortune , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , Hero of Bladehold , Cloudshift (after the first attack but before the second attack {technically during the "Beginning of Combat Step" of the second combat phase}, flicker Aurelia. Aurelia will be a new object on re-entry. Thus, when she attacks during the second combat, you will then untap and get a third combat because this iteration of Aurelia is attacking for the first time), Ephemerate , Justiciar's Portal , Acrobatic Maneuver

Ah okay I didn't realize that. I have been away for a while. I know when I played last time, getting exiled was pretty common, but now it only seems like a low percentage.

I did update my deck to remove Justiciar's Portal and a couple others that weren't really helping me. I sideboarded all of my indestructible cards. What do you think about the current setup or would you say it would still be better to add in a few Lightning Strike s as they are instants. I am running 3 Justice Strike at the moment and I really like these cards. Same goes for Solar Blaze as more often than not, the creatures that are really dangerous have Attack >= Defense.

I have noticed more planeswalkers than usual too. So would there be a better choice than Star of Extinction for removal or should I try to find a spot for them. At least in my sideboard.

Thanks for the input. I will try removing those cards to see how it plays. If a battle is medium to long, I can usually pull out the victory, but aggro decks are very much a pain to go against. There is another card that is better than Lightning Strike right now. I can't remember the name of the card, but it exiles the creature when it dies instead of just sending it to the graveyard.

With the indestructible and Justiciar's Portal , I do seem to use those less often than I would like. I think Justiciar's Portal actually has more uses since it can also trigger ETB abilities so it helps my Forerunner, but having an actual creature in hand would probably be a lot more useful than that when I think about it.

I need more wincons and the "blink things to blink other things" wasn't really working

Felidar Guardian -> Divine Visitation Lumbering Battlement -> Cathars' Crusade

Twinflame -> Flameshadow Conjuring - A more efficient version of this effect. Also Twinflame is a sorcery

Akroan Crusader -> Pia and Kiran Nalaar - A better token producer, and makes flyers

Justiciar's Portal -> Dualcaster Mage - A little unsure of removing a blinker, but I do always seem to have enough in hand. And Dualcaster allows me to copy my opponents' great spells

ChibiNature Thank you for you fast response.

I've also been running a small 'flicker' toolkit in this deck with the following cards: Cloudshift , Justiciar's Portal , Momentary Blink , Stonehorn Dignitary , Zealous Conscripts .

I don't really like Stonehorn Dignitary all that much, but I haven't thought of a replacement yet.

Zealous Conscripts is great in that it steals ANY permanent (Planeswalker, Enchantment, ... and especially opponent's special lands). I pair this with High Market that I fetch with Weathered Wayfarer . Miren, the Moaning Well might work but it takes 3 colorless to activate it... too expensive.

Turns out I like the instant resolve of flicker effects better than the ones that come back at End phase such as Otherworldly Journey .

SimplyG on Makin' Your Wizz Burn

If I may offer some suggestions. I have played UR Wizard Burn in Modern and currently have a Jeskai Wizards build with Naban, Dean of Iteration , an Izzet Wizard Deck with Adeliz, the Cinder Wind , and a spell slinger deck with Niv-Mizzet, Parun in standard. Each have their own similarities, but mostly play very, very differently. When I look at this list, I feel like you aren't focused enough on one particular area to be effective. You've got some pieces from one game plan and some pieces from other game plans. Consider the following ways you can go:

  • The first variation is a super aggro deck built around Adeliz. You throw down little, aggressive wizards like Siren Stormtamer , Ghitu Lavarunner , and Viashino Pyromancer and get some early damage in. Then, when the time is right, you slam Adeliz, attack with everyone, throw all your cheap burn spells at your opponent's face, and deal like 30 damage in a single turn. Adeliz needs such cheap wizards to go wide quickly and cheap spells to "storm off" with her, that I don't even include Wee Dragonauts and Aven Wind Mage in my deck because I feel like they are too expensive.

  • The second variation is a slower, burn them over time plan using cards like Guttersnipe , Goblin Electromancer , Electrostatic Field , Niv-Mizzet, and Murmuring Mystic . This build is essentially a counter-burn deck which controls the board state and slowly kills the opponent with incremental damage using the creatures above.

  • The third variation is built around Naban. I know you don't have Naban on this list, but have all of his best students: Merfolk Trickster , Viashino Pyromancer , and Exclusion Mage . This is a tempo deck where you gain value off of your wizards and blink them over and over again with Siren's Ruse or, if you're Jeskai, Justiciar's Portal .

  • Finally, this isn't a wizards build, but people keep mentioning them so I figured I should too, and that is a deck using Crackling Drake and Enigma Drake . Aside from having Goblin Electromancer , I don't think it really has anything to do with Wizards perse, but it does play similarly. I played the double drake deck when Ravnica first came out and I did so without Arclight Phoenix because I couldn't afford it. The goal of this deck is just to slam a Drake and make sure it survives while slowly powering it up. There are more tempoy builds which are more aggressive and slower, more control builds.

I hope this helps. Having a single strategy in mind really helps refine decks and give them a ton more consistency. Figure out what style of play you like best and I would hone in on that. Or you could be like me and just build them all! Wizards is my favorite tribe.

What about adding Justiciar's Portal , so you can double up on Wall of Lost Thoughts ETB?
