Lantern Kami Discussion

That'd be a wicked cycle neosapien, I shall consider making it a reality.

Been play-testing and felt that many a time I wouldn't play my first spell till T2 so more 1-drops were needed. I wanted to test Kami of False Hope and Lantern Kami to see which might be better. I like False because I could block then sacrifice it to negate other damage for free. Lantern appeals mainly because it's evasive from the get-go.

What would you suggest cutting for the Gift of Immortality ?

@Tingettley Yeah, Midnight Haunting vs Spectral Procession is a hard call. The biggest thing it came down to is instant/easier to cast vs sorcery/harder to cast. I think my mana base is fancy enough that I can swing Spectral Procession , but it's going to take some playtesting to figure it out. And Lingering Souls I think is the best, it's just annoying to get the mana base right and ultimately not worth the trouble, I think. Since this is a low cmc tribal/aggro style deck I think Mana Leak works better than Remand . I'm still tweaking and playtesting so nothing is certain. Lantern Kami is another tough choice. I think, in general, Doomed Traveler is a better card. But once my opponent sees that this is a tribal spirits deck with buffs for flyers, its more profitable for my opponent to not lethally block him/kill him because if they do, I'm getting the better deal out of it. At least, that's how I would play against it. I'll gladly take the 1 damage per turn instead of giving them a 1/1 flyer with potential to be much fatter. But there isn't really a better 1 drop that fits in this deck.

4x Lantern Kami seem kind of boring, are you sure you don't want 4x Doomed Traveler ? Also, you could cut down the land to maybe 21 if you wanted, there's nothing past 3 you want, and all you have is a bunch of dead mana after that. I'd recommend Celestial Colonnade or Mutavault too.

We've been busy and after one or two comments I've dropped the 4 Lantern Kami s and replaced them with Doomed Traveler lets see how this tweak works out..

Yes, Beckon Apparition is better than Lantern Kami . In addition to instant speed, I can still exile a card from the opponent's graveyard. Good

No no, no Gallows Warden ! Why should I use it if I already have Favorable Winds and Drogskol Captain ?

Doomed Traveler is interesting, since I have no 1 drop creatures.

Defang goes to the sideboard. One of my friends uses beast deck, and they are 11/11, 12/12 sometimes. It will be interesting.

I have some doubts about Latch Seeker . He is cool, but its toughness is so weak ... I don't know if it really pays off.

:) ...I love Lingering Souls ... I miss Lingering Souls in Standard...... :(I thought it was worth me "Insisting you to try it" ... and plus, you have opened up other Black Mana possibilities...

Beckon Apparition ... Instant Speed Creature... Exile ANY card (your graveyard or his) .... It can be White or Black Mana .... I kinda like this card.... :)

Lantern Kami ... a 1/1 flyer...

As I write this, I find my old spirit deck, I did not know I still had it.....

No order.... all good...

Gallows Warden .... nice

Doomed Traveler .... Awesome card!!!

Hollowhenge Spirit ... 1-2 Max

Favorable Winds ... nice

Defang ... you might have trouble against trample... This will help... sideboard??

Latch Seeker .... Unblockable... do i need say more? :)

ginko2580 I really liked this card.

I was thinking of moving to 4 the number of Lingering Souls . 4x Caves of Koilos too. Or any other cheap dual land.

And Beckon Apparition looks pretty cool, but instead, is no better Lantern Kami ?

What do you think?
