[email protected]_only on Gods and the clerics who worship them

needs more cleric tribal - I'd ditch the backup Orzhov subtheme ( Basilica Screecher , Crypt Ghast , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , & Tithe Taker ) and probably the Regal Bloodlord for some cleric support: Akroma's Devoted , Battlefield Medic , Battletide Alchemist , and Daru Spiritualist come to mind for that. Edgewalker is a must for the colors, and I'd probably ditch the monuments and obilisk of urd for more clerics - Alms Collector and Bygone Bishop give decent card draw, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails , Giver of Runes and Mother of Runes offer amazing protection for your field. Frontline Medic and Selfless Spirit offer indistrucbablity for your own wipes. Sin Collector offers good andi-countermagic / tide-turner removal. High Priest of Penance is just amazing with the recusion this deck should have. Rotlung Reanimator turns all clerics into double duty sac fodder, and Priest of Forgotten Gods , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist are more than happy to supply that role, with Skirsdag High Priest backing them up. and Weathered Wayfarer pulls the same job as Land Tax , but can fetch non-basics, and is a cleric.

Planeswalkers that you'd want to run would be the following;

That's 13x Planeswalkers which should be plenty. If you'd like to add Karn Liberated you can do so but I wouldn't stretch it any further than this. You still need room for your Instants, Sorceries, Lands and Creatures. You mentioned you also want Enchantments? Well, I'd cut down on those except for the basic prisons. Notably:

I'd also focus on making it a soft Flying Tribal, to empower your tokens

All in all, this is 34 cards. If you figure you'll be running the recommended 37 lands + 8 stones, you have a total card base of 79 cards. This leaves you 20 Instant / Sorcery spells.

Given that, you may want to trim down so you have more chances to use your Commander. I'm noticing a general lack of red power in here, so you may want to actually make this an Azorius deck that happens to splash red just to get your Commander out.

Focus on replayable Instants and Sorceries, such as the ones mentioned above. Also, Charmbreaker Devils will be of great asset in this deck.

Hope that helps! :D

Land Tax would be a good addition since it will nearly guarantee you won’t miss any land drops and it will thin out your deck for you.

Maybe Selfless Spirit could also be a good add in since it will let you survive a board wipe.

I really like the commander choice! Agrus is a great character in the Ravnica book cycle ;) Also, nice build! I'm actually in the middle of brewing a Flanking tribal deck with him as commander. Not sure if it's going to be any good but we'll see!

A few cards that may help:

Heartwarming Redemption - Nice draw for Boros.

Mirror Entity - Absolutely deadly with a small board state of tokens out. This teams up amazingly well with Goldnight Commander too.

Anointed Procession - For token generation.

Maybe Mass Hysteria + Uphill Battle is a janky control combo.

Now the cards I'm about to mention cost some $$ but they are certainly worth putting in if you are looking to create faster mana generation:

Caged Sun

Gauntlet of Power

Extraplanar Lens + Snow Covered Lands

Mana Flare - This one is the most affordable and I put it in all my red decks.

Smothering Tithe

Land Tax

Again, neat deck! +1

You’re welcome.

I have no problems with Bontu the Glorified as a sac outlet. 1 colourless and 1 black should never be an issue. Even Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is easy to have the right mana for.

Smothering Tithe helped immensely in ramp and colour fixing.

Only issue I have with Land Tax is the land goes to your hand not on to the battlefield. It only ensures you play nice fair magic with dropping 1 land a turn when playing Orzhov.

Oketra's Monument a card I’ve considered myself. However it falls in to the same category as Open the Graves , Ogre Slumlord , Requiem Angel and several other similar cards.

For me personally not enough value from it as a token generator.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose is in my opinion the best token generator in a aristocrats death trigger build.

Field of Souls you could slot as each non token creature you sac creates a token, it’s cheap and it would trigger twice from Teysa Karlov .

I’ll go over my suggested cuts after work.

KibaAlpha,

First off, thanks a ton for the input!

Bontu is very interesting - do you find it a problem at all that the sac outlet costs mana, and especially coloured mana?

Spawning Pit should definitely make the cut, you're right.

I haven't found I need more ramp thus far, but Knight of the White Orchid and Burnished Hart are both solid. What do you think of Land Tax ?

Expedition Map and Crypt Ghast both should also probably be in, I think, despite what I just said about ramp. They just have a high ceiling on what they can accomplish.

Speaking of monuments, what do you think of Oketra's Monument ? Its reduction effect won't be as relevant but it makes a lot of tokens.

Any suggestions on what to cut?

Thanks again for your input!

Hexaflexagon: I'm a little confused, you cut Dawn of Hope which can at least generate tokens but kept in the souls sisters package whick now does even less in the deck? In commander especially, lifegain is only good when it's a means to an end. Lifegain for the sake of life gain is generally pretty bad, unless it's attached to a card that already does something else as well.

Also, just remember that while Land Tax is a good card, it's not actually ramp. Sure it helps you get your land drops, but won't accelerate you past one land per turn.

Hey BS-T,

Thanks for your help. I've already added in, Hall of Heliod's Generosity . I'll probably keep in Homeward Path for now, as I haven't really played much at my LGS and have only seen a few decks.


Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey CasualCucumber,

Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey K1ngMars,

Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.

I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey enpc,

Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey Nemesis,

Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon
