Karn's Bastion Discussion

Tarthrin on Just Leave Me Alone

For the forced combat theme you could go with Siren's Call

If you are going for turtling, you could look at Statecraft or Peacekeeper

If you have enough draw power, maybe Solitary Confinement or Island Sanctuary? Super well-protected but you have to skip your draw step and discard cards. Might be able to buy you a couple turns. Could combine it with Pitchstone Wall to keep that up longer.

Have you considered Darksteel Reactor for another "you win" option?

Some of your "you win" cards use counters. You could add some proliferate cards like Clockspinning or Karn's Bastion.

I have a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck here if you're interested to see an idea like yours made without white.. maybe get some ideas. I've gotten a few from your deck. Karn's Bastion is a decent land worth checking out for deck. Aetherborn Marauder is fun.

possibly one year too late, but a couple of things i noticed in this deck:

  1. Is there a specific use for Windswept Heath and Wooded Foothills? You would be better off with Verdant Catacombs, Twilight Mire or Tainted Wood.

  2. And if your sole purpose is to get Vraska to Ult, I would consider using Doubling Season since Vraska would come in with double her loyalty counters. That way you could set up the combo of: have Doubling Season and either Evolution Sage or Karn's Bastion in play, bring out Vraska, Golgari Queen, play a land (if making use of the sage) and proliferate Vraska. Ult Vraska straight away giving your opponents less time to respond to her.

LunoStarlyght this deck originally included Nissa, Who Shakes the World but I ended up cutting her. I will consider her and her Voice of Zendikar version.

If I were to add proliferation to the deck I'd probably slot in a Karn's Bastion.

Nice list. Here’s my suggestions: Doubling Season (you’re running craterhoof so I don’t see how this shouldn’t be included), Karn's Bastion (not great but is sometimes just enough), Gilder Bairn + Paradise Mantle (can be infinite with another enabler but good enough as is). You should consider running any other decent walkers that ult at 2x devotion. Look at The Ozolith as well.

RubiksQbert, apparently this deck, at least some of the time, likes to run in a staxy way. I had not intended that. Narset was for card draw, upticking her 1 each turn.

My understanding is that whenever a planeswalker hits the field, they get at least smacked, if not killed, before they ultimate. I hadn't looked at her ultimate before realizing i was at 9 loyalty, and deciding i had better before she got killed.

Anyway, Karn's Bastion is for sure going to be added. I'll have to look at the others, and a possible planeswalker replacement card draw for narset.
