Last Breath Discussion

Last Breath is mainly just to help early on, so I don't have to rely as much on verdict and deal with Voice of Resurgence and similar creatures. Hour of Revelation takes care of annoying permanents, since there's no Detention Sphere . If you get to turn six, it still helps against creatures, especially if a verdict isen't enough. But maybe only playing two is an option.

Thanks for the comment Str8Enable.

The idea behind Last Breath is to deal with early creatures like Deathrite Shaman and Voice of Resurgence . As for Hour of Revelation , it's not so much to deal with aggro, but to deal with permanents like planeswalkers.

As for Absorb , I don't think I really need that extra lifegain instead of being able to scry (maybe it's better than Disallow , though). Also a reason for Elixir of Immortality . You do make a good point about about not needing elixir, now that teferi helps against decking, but elixir helps with shuffling Approach of the Second Sun into the deck, if it gets countered/discarded.

You might try Celestial Crusader in place of Phantom General . I would also try to find some alternatives to Last Breath and Ghostly Possession - maybe Pacifism or Collective Effort ? (Not spirit cards, but still spooky looking.) You could also try a few copies of Intangible Virtue with all the spirit tokens.

Very sorry I didn't check over this list. I am quite ill right now and have been for about a week.

While this list is easily a well-tuned sisay deck, why are Apostle's Blessing , Last Breath , and Hope of Ghirapur run?

They seem like very... interesting choices, yet I am pretty sure there might be more powerful replacements.

Revoke Existence mainboard seems really bad. An alternative would be Oblivion Ring since it's not dead against creatures, at least.

Last Breath is a good card in pauper, as well. Also, Sunlance.

@jfly517 Other than Last Breath, I run all of those cards in the budget version of this deck: Biracial Budget (BB). They're good and at one point I ran each of them in this deck, however over time I gradually moved towards what I have now.
