Knight of the Reliquary Discussion

VietMoneys on Hazezon Muad'dib: Dune-Inspired EDH

To answer your question though, Knight of the Reliquary has been an excellent new addition to this deck, though she's a bit specific to the weird Lands theme I have going on.

Erratic Portal was a super useful card in a more straightforward, Hazezon-centric version of this deck, as is Shields of Velis Vel, which is a really funny Instant-speed trick if someone removes Hazezon. For best results, play it the turn you play Hazezon then sac him!

Your welcome for the comment, I love talking commander so it's super fun for me.
To answer your question, I think you will find Mystic Snake, Stalking Leonin, Academy Elite, and Knight of the Reliquary underperformers in the deck. IMHO: Mystic Snake doesn't interact with Roon well. Stalking Leonin is very situational. Academy Elite is slow, mana heavy, and there are better ETB card draw options (i.e. Prime Speaker Zegana). Knight is a very good card, but not incredibly synergistic for this deck.
In addition to my earlier suggestions, if you don't mind being hated, Lavinia of the Tenth is a great way to lock up your opponents while your building up your board state (be ready for the hate though).

SynergyBuild on Garden Guard [Selesnya Token Aggro]

1 week ago

Hey, I made one of these populate decks!

A few questions:

First Question: How is this aggro?

I mean you run no 1 drops, and your fastest kill is turn 5, and that isn't super likely.

Second Question: Why 4 Temple Gardens

With Wooded Foothills or Flooded Strands, you only need 2-3 Temple Gardens for required fixing, and Horizon Canopy deserves a spot or two in this list. Also the Grove of the Guardians will never really see play unless you are in the midrange mirror against Abzan or something. Maybe sideboard them, run some Horizon Canopy, drop a Temple Garden drop in another Fetchland, call your landbase a day.

Third Question: Why no dorks?

You can up the playability of the deck with a full playset of Noble Hierarch and 2-3 Birds of Paradise

The best plays of populate lists are turn one Noble Hierarch curving into turn two Wayfaring Temple, into turn three 2xCall of the Conclave (One one Call of the Conclave and one Selesnya Charm on 2/2 token), swinging for 5 with Wayfaring Temple (4 creatures+exalted trigger), then copy a Call of the Conclave, turn 4 drop a few creatures (dorks, tokens, whatever), swing for 15, win turn 4. You can also achieve this with a hand of Intangible Virtues.

Fourth (And Final) Question: Why do you run Trostani, Selesnya's Voice?

Against Combo, or aggro, you are dead before you untap with her, against control, she will die before then, or won't resolve. To be honest, the same is true for Advent of the Wurm. With dorks, it woul be possible to untap with them, but since you don't run any they appear useless. Wilt-Leaf Liege has a similar problem, but I actually like him, because if you swing the turn you drop him, he doesn't need to untap to win a game. Otherwise I find him pretty bad, and would drop him for Dryad Militants that at least stop storm, TurboFog, or Snapcaster Mage, along with Life from the Loam, and a handful of readily played modern staples. Druid's Deliverance actually falls into this category of "cards that won't matter in modern", but I'd be lying if there wouldn't be a deck that could use it, Turbo-Fog (which is not this deck, and Turbo-Fog is normally trash).

You should really consider running some of the following: Knight of the Reliquary, Path to Exile, or Intangible Virtue, the do wonders!

Qasali Pridemage and Dromoka's Command seem pretty overkill both as 4x, most decks run 1x of 1 of them. and there are pleanty of things that can easily fin in thoes slots like Courser of Kruphix, Eternal Witness, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Knight of the Reliquary (gets gavony) and path to name a few

also for the sb id cut Heroic Intervention for Damping Sphere for interaction vs storm and tron. also Kataki, War's Wage and Stony Silence is overkill id say 1xQasali Pridemage and 2xStony Silence. the deck also looks pretty sad at burn why arnt you running Kitchen Finks it should be a easy 4x in the main (not so budget but def worth it if you wanna slash on anything). Birds of Paradise is nice if its in the budget especially with township and the ammount of 4 drops that you need to get down as fast as possible if not id go up 2 or 3 lands, as it is on the play there is only a 63.7% chnace to hit 4 lands on turn 4 and 43.0% for activating fleecmane lion on curve, Llanowar Elves could be a budget BOP, clearly worse but i think its still gonna be better then 25 land.

I would recommend you splash White for Knight of the Reliquary, and if it is not beyond your budget, PrimeTime.

I really love the idea. Found the deck on the reddit post you made, but figured it would be easier to have a discussion on this platform.

Do you reckon that Knight of the Reliquary could have a place in a deck like this? I know people tend to keep on trying to make that card stick in some form of modern deck, but I do believe its place is somewhere in a land-based combo deck. Maybe it is something like this.

Secondly, how has Shalai, Voice of Plenty been working out for you? I find it to be really underwhelming, and I must be honest in that I really don't very much see the appeal of the deck. In the burn matchup it sure is a solid card, but it certainly isn't the end all and be all of storm hate, especially as a 1-of in the sideboard. The main other thing that giving yourself hexproof helps with is targeted discard, and I imagine decks that are heavy in that regard certainly shouldn't struggle removing Shalai, Voice of Plenty from the board. (She even dies to Fatal Push, which is all over the format currently)

I'm also intrigued by your choice of graveyard hate. Grafdigger's Cage all but kills your Renegade Rallier, whereas Relic of Progenitus cycles itself and can get recurred by said Rallier.

I was also hoping to get your input on Prismatic Omen; I have never played with the card and am wondering what exactly the purpose is here? Mainly as an additional midgame value engine to turn landdrops into Lightning Bolt?

(PS: You listed green and red as "Excluded Colors", which is the reason the mana circle thing is entirely white, might want to change that :])

Goretast Thanks for the feedback! This version here is just the alpha build, and quite different from what I've actually got together in paper ATM. A few of the cards you mentioned have since been included (though if you'll notice, Temple Garden was already in there!), and some stuff - like Knight of the Reliquary - has come out. I will try and get an updated list up here soon, as it's significantly different already.

I love seeing other Karametra decks. I'm going to throw out some suggestions based on what I have in my deck, which is more mid-game with way less mana dorks. You seem to have lots of low costs to get maximum value off of karametra, but I think you are missing more kill potential. Craterhoof Behemoth is an extremely strong finisher that fits well in this deck. Akroma's Memorial can also easily win you the game. Genesis Wave would also be a fun card to pump all that ramp into. Sublime Archangel and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite also seems fun with the creature spam you are putting out.

Some utility lands with your Knight of the Reliquary would also be useful. Gavony Township, Kor Haven, Mistveil Plains (tutorable with karametra), Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Dryad Arbor, Homeward Path, and Temple Garden are some notable cards you should consider.

You should check out my decklist and see if there is anything that catches your eye Commanding from the Throne of Abundance
