Kwende, Pride of Femeref Discussion

Noire_Samhain, You know,its funny. i have a bunch of Lapse of Certainty a card i feel if its not reprinted, will go up in price in a few years because its one of the few white Counterspells (youre right nobody expects a counter in white.) The funny part is how i obtained them: friggen dollar tree. yes, the dollar tree packs. I was curious and stupid, but maybe not..i actually pulled a Carpet of Flowers in one. so, its not all garbage. Thanks for the suggestions im definitely considering them! especially Benalish Marshal in place of Kwende, Pride of Femeref .

Hey Kehrmann15, here are some thoughts about the deck, especially how to improve it with cards we already have in our playgroup.

Creatures

Arvad the Cursed : In the current deck he probably has too few other Legendaries he can reliably pump. I would tend to replace him with a lord who pushes all the Knights. For example I could give you Benalish Marshal .

Kwende, Pride of Femeref : Similar to Arvad, there are very few targets at the moment. (Three Knights with Firststrike.) As a good replacement I could give you e.g. Aryel, Knight of Windgrace . Besides her respectable 4/4 vigilance (especially useful in multiplayer) she is a "mana sink", so she can use open mana even if you can't play hand cards. Specifically, she creates Knights tokens or destroys other creatures on each turn.

Belle of the Brawl and Skynight Vanguard would be shaky candidates for me, which could ideally be replaced by stronger Knights. Perfect would be for example Puresteel Paladin and Knight Exemplar . But both are not quite cheap and unfortunately I don't have them either.

Otherwise I'd rather go in the direction of 25 creatures, so maybe add two more value creatures. For example, I could give you the two: Kambal, Consul of Allocation fits well to your drain theme. Which you did to Neotopian and me last time. Sram, Senior Edificer lets you draw a card for each piece of equipment.

This brings us directly to the next topic.

Card Draw

Card Draw still seems to me to be the weakest point in the deck. Cards I can give you from my collection would be Read the Bones (e.g. as a replacement for Call the Cavalry , because you don't really play Go-Wide with the deck and hardly profit from it), Skullclamp and Sunforger (both equipment with which you have more synergies and absolute "must haves" in the deck). Especially Sunforger is crazy with your Commander, if you can fetch a CMC4 Instant for 2 mana and cast for free.

For the Sunforger to work properly, we need a few more instants with impact for <=CMC4.

Removal

Removal should be as versatile as possible ("target permanent" is better than "target creature") and as reliable as possible ("destroy" or even "exile" better than "x damage"). Therefore I would replace Integrity / Intervention by Utter End and Justice Strike by Swords to Plowshares (if any of us have it). Adamant Will is only good in special situations, so I would replace it with a good removal. I could give you Bedevil for example.

Tutors

In order to have Sunforger or other cards on hand at the right time, a few tutors would be helpful. For example, I could give you Diabolic Tutor from my collection. Open the Armory would also be a cheap tutor who fits well to your topic.

I'm not finished on the other topics yet, but here are my first notes on equipment, mana rocks and lands:

Equipment

Find a few stronger pieces of equipment to replace the following:

Mana Rocks

One or two more Mana Rocks. If possible <=CMC2, otherwise (if CMC3) only with additional use. In any case Manalith out and if anywhere findable Sol Ring in.

Lands

No Taplands without upside (Gates etc.). If we don't find better duals (e.g. the scry temples would offer a nice upside) replace them with basics.

Xero203 on How does a creature with ...

I am working on building a Knight deck and trying to figure out synergies. I am having trouble wrapping my head around how protection works between creatures on your team. Looking at Phyrexian Crusader with Protection from white would it be able to Receive any benefit from white cards that buff all creatures/knights such as Knight Exemplar , Kwende, Pride of Femeref or Odric, Lunarch Marshal . Also would an enchantment that hits all creatures such Always Watching have any interaction with him?

Boza on Evergreen keywords becomes Skills

4 months ago

While I disagree with Caerwyn on the confusing and arbitrary side (given Wizards just recently changed the rules on a metric ton of cards), I do agree on the point of necessity.

This is design space that evergreen keywords are actually trying to avoid. There are only a few rares and mythics that have the "list of keywords" ability. Not only is to complicating the intentionally simplistic evergreen keywords, it is also design space that had to be there at the start and cannot be reimplemented into game at any point. The list of words is not really available on the card, and that list can change.

Your reminder text:

"(A Skill is a static keyword ability that applies to creatures, such as Flying, First Strike, Double Strike, Deathtouch, Lifelink, Haste, Hexproof, Indestructible, Trample, Menace, Defender, Vigilance, Reach, Flash, Protection, Landwalk, Fear, Intimidate, Shroud, and any Skill introduced at a later time)"

Is increblity hard to parse and essentially just puts the text on something like Cairn Wanderer in parenthesis, while also making it somehow even longer. And you cannot put "and any skill introduced at a later time" as part of the rules or even the reminder text, because it says nothing.

The design space for this is also limited and, crucially, is already being implemented on some cards. For example, Kwende, Pride of Femeref really cares about creatures with first strike. But thematically, it cannot be that a card cares for all keywords or even more than 1 at the same time.

Lets take a close look at Rayami. First of the Fallen . He lists specific abilities, because those are the keyword abilities the Sultai colors have access to:

Evergreen

Odric, Lunarch Marshal intentionally list skulk, a blue-black abilility to both reference the set he is from and for flavor. So, while those abilities are listed in huge block of text, this is rarely used on a handful of cards.

Finally, the large block of text is actually extremely appealing to any Timmy, so getting rid of it can disappoint pdemographics of players.

Maybe Kwende, Pride of Femeref might be a card to consider? I still love the deck either way lol.

Hey bushido_man96, so here's the link for my Hallar boy: Hallar the Firekicker and I've also got a Brawl deck with Tiana, Ship's Caretaker which has the amazing combos of Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Kwende, Pride of Femeref . I might upload that at some point because at the moment it's just on paper.

I almost made a Rona, Disciple of Gix Commander but there wasn't enough content, I was after equipments/enchantment that gave her Ingest or ": Exile card from target player's library/graveyard/hand/whatever" but there was nothing so I was really diappointed, even after all the exile in the recent Zendikar block.

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is also really interesting but at the moment I'm slotting her into a Standard deck (while it's in rotation) combined with Rat Colony , sweet combo. This is in construction here: Tetsuko's Colony.

I don't know whether you've played Oathbreaker or not but I've started using the new uncommon planeswalkers in that format too. Uncommons are just the greatest for budget XD

I'll be keen to hear from you again and hope we can assist each other in our brewing :)
