Knight of the White Orchid Discussion

I think Scoured Barrens , Terramorphic Expanse , and Evolving Wilds can be cut for utility lands. Strip Mine , Wasteland , Tectonic Edge , Ghost Quarter , Phyrexian Tower , Bojuka Bog , Emeria, The Sky Ruin all come to mind as better than those 3 lands that I mentioned.

I also you're playing too many lands at 39.

I also think your deck is missing out on a lot of ramp cards. Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , etc., are all pretty useful. I like creatures that get you lands like the knight (or things like Solemn Simulacrum because they also fuel your sac engines.

Ramp cards I like: Surveyor's Scope Gift of Estates , Liliana's Shade are all great. Shade is more expensive than Knight of the White Orchid , but it will always get you a land. The other two are just great generally.

I absolutely love Aetherworks Marvel which is busted in this deck. Revel in Riches I see in your maybeboard. I like it in the deck simply to eat removal that would otherwise target something more integral to what I'm doing.

Spawning Pit op.

Chainer, Dementia Master I like alot as well. gets you goodstuff from anyone's yard, and it exiles them whenever you want so its a great way to kill reanimator decks.

Killing Wave and Massacre Girl may also be worth looks? They're symmetrical, but often I find that I'm not affected by that nearly as much as everyone else.

I love Teysa Karlov so much omg

lonesentinel I won’t be removing Sunforger because it pulls out the board wipe protection from my deck, being Teferi's Protection and Boros Charm

griffstick I don’t think I’ll be cutting my board wipes since I normally need to use one before starting to build up with the Angels since the deck is very mid-late game. As for Berserkers' Onslaught it seems pretty good and I could see having it as a side board to swap with Aura of silence when I’m facing more aggressive decks. I should probably find the Vandalblast I have sitting around and put it into the deck and maybe swap Return to Dust with Crush Contraband

multimedia I have Aven Mindcensor and I could see putting it in the deck for the anti searching and Knight of the White Orchid does seem like a good swap for my Expedition Map thanks for the suggestions.

Consider Knight of the White Orchid replacing Map? You're playing both Foundry and Mistveil, lands that Orchid can search for and ramp. Also consider adding Aven Mindcensor in place of Burnished Hart or Gift of Estates ? I'm not a fan of Hart, it's too slow. In my opinion Orchid and Mindcensor are must haves for any heavy white deck.

multimedia Thanks for your suggestions! My deck did run Balduvian Rage for a long time; but I decided against it for two reasons: for one; it’s a fake instant. You can only cast it on an Attacking creature, so you completely miss out on the recast ability a “lesser” card like, say, Titan's Strength gives you. That, plus the fact that you pretty much have to tap out (4 mana for a pump spell is a LOT in this deck) to make it equal to said Titan's Strength just isn’t worth it imo. Plus, Orim’s Thunder is a repeatable destruction spell that I can kick while Sunforger tutors it up; which I find baddass.

Stand Firm is a highly underrated card in this deck as scrying two in the late game really helps me dig for answers or protection; and honestly I think more decks should run it. The stat boost is minimal compared to the recurring value of possibly scrying 8 before your next turn begins. That said; if they ever print an instant of Seize the Day that is 4CMC or less you’d better bet your ass I’ll add it in.

Knight of the White Orchid was originally in this deck but I removed it for a Tithe , so that way I can search for Mistveil Plains and get that sweet Sunforger synergy. If I could make a cut that would allow me both Knight AND the Bauble I’d be happy; as the Knight is situational in that I need LESS lands than my opponent whereas Bauble don’t care. That, and I run Bauble for the minute chance I can drop it whilst I control a Monastery Mentor . That’s it. Knight is just a decent bear that I wouldn’t want to target over any other creature in the deck.

Guttersnipe is, admittedly, a great card; that I would love to reinclude at some point just for pure value; but alas the vast majority of the time I win through Feather going face REALLY hard instead of my tokens getting the reacharound; so Guttersnipe’s aoe damage isn’t as valuable to me right now... plus, Akroan Conscriptor has some Janky combos of his own; allowing me to Cloudshift a creature he stole to allow me to keep it for forever: or even Path to Exile it so I can ramp while removing their board! :D

Forbidden Orchard is neat; though I’m not a fan of giving my opponents reseources when my gameplan is to out value them. Ill give it thought.

Hey, nice version.

Hey there,

I bumped into this list and felt like leaving a comment. I love Oketra, because she’s similar to the way I play Karamentra. From that perspective, these are some tips I have for your list:

Some card I would cut:

  • Ajani’s Mantra doesn’t seem to be worth it. There are way better lifegain options
  • Divine Visitation doesn’t seem like the best fit in this deck. Most your tokens are going to be 4/4 already. That card seems better suited in a deck that only makes small tokens.
  • You are running some cards that require a +1/+1 counter synergy, but you hardly have any cards with +1/+1 counters. That theme also has no relation with your commander, so it seems a bit weird to me to include that here. I would cut some of those cards from the deck: like abzan battle priest, abzan falconer, annoy bond-kin.

Hope some of these tips match your vision for the deck!

GL & HF,

Beebles
