Leonin Arbiter Discussion

goldlion on A Semi-Comprehensive List of All Hatebears (RAV)

15 hours ago

It's great you started putting together this resource, SynergyBuild! Thanks.

I was wondering, I have Deathgorge Scavenger but I always wonder if he's worth a slot in EDH. Is he good enough? I am building a mid-level STAX Grand Warlord Radha , maybe there?

Also - I thought hatebears are meant to take down effectiveness of other decks? I'm confused about some cards on this list; I'm wondering why Growth-Chamber Guardian , Jadelight Ranger , or Llanowar Elves made it on here? Wouldn't Scavenging Ooze (while technically not a "bear"), Leonin Arbiter , Ash Zealot be examples of hatebears, but not those guys?

RedmundR2 on Mono White Angel

Im a big fan of mid-rangey mono color tribal decks, but here is some advice if you want to make it work more consistently and be generally more successful even in a very casual table top setting:

Curve in modern is king!

If you look at the curve for your deck and the average CMC in general, its very very high and its going to take several turns to even start getting your big angels out. This is an issue because at most you will be playing one threat per turn, and by turn 4 your control opponent will have more than enough mana and cards to stop them from hitting the board, your aggro opponents will have killed you, and faster mid range decks will have set up the board to a point where you are behind the rest of the game.

Solutions: Splash green for ramp ( Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise ) or find more cards in the 1 and 3 slots that are defensive. Current build is desperate for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Defensive/tax/solid cards in white you can use would be stuff like Leonin Arbiter , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thraben Inspector , Doomed Traveler , Student of Warfare .

You can try to go the Pillow Fort route with enchantments as well. Think Sphere of Safety , Ghostly Prison , Runed Halo , Porphyry Nodes , Sigil of the Empty Throne as a finisher.

Interacting with your opponent is key!

Currently the only removal you have in your deck is Ixalan's Binding , which costs a large amount of mana considering it only removes a single target. Lucky for us we are playing white and have alot of great removal. Path to Exile , Fragmentize , Oblivion Ring . If I was playing this deck, my biggest fear would be my opponent would play something like Ensnaring Bridge because i'd only have a 32% chance of drawing Ixalan's Binding by turn 5 and thats spooky!

Hope this helps. tl;dr is I'd lower the average CMC, add more removal and ways to interact with the opponent

lithium142 on Control decks are child’s play

2 weeks ago

Demarge holy moly thats a lot of suggestions to go through haha.

appreciate it, man!

adding some soul sisters could be a nice touch. i was struggling to think of one drops to fill out the curve, so that may well be the ticket!

utility lands are something i deliberately avoided. i feel like that breaks his creatures only stipulation. ideally, i'd run a playset of ghost quarter, and run Leonin Arbiter since i already have the titans in the list, and start popping lands. which is inevitably why i opted against Eldrazi Displacer. as for the leviathins, you're absolutely right about it not being a very good card. however, new players dig that stuff, and he even prefaced his message saying that she really likes dumping giant creatures out to win games. that said, i think it's worth sacrificing 2 slots for the style points in this case. just bear with me, by the time she's playing against meta decks, she'll probably not be playing this as a creature only deck anymore, so some liberties are okay.

oh man, did i ever want to include Kitchen Finks in this list! that card is a stinking powerhouse! even sitting at $5 right now, that would still amount to a 50% increase to the deck's total cost. Im just not sure i could justify it, and it would introduce two mechanics to a new player.

Blade Splicer is something i'm still considering. the deck could probably use a way to go wider, just not sure what id swap for it. the other four i hadnt thought about! nice! im not sure i like mangara or lawkeeper since they have to tap for effect, but ill test em out for the heck of it. bugler and inspector have me very intrigued. those could be very helpful!

thanks for your thoughts, my friend!

DiverDown on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

1 month ago

Yeah they changed the highest tier from tier 0 to tier 1 in the last update I believe, it took me a while to notice it myself.

Also I wouldn't necessarily say Zur gets around Stax pretty well considering different Stax effects hit different things. Zur wouldn't be able to win under a Rule of Law, Arcane Laboratory, and even Damping Sphere to an extent because Storm and Doomsday combos die to that sort of hate. Common Hatebear threats like Aven Mindcensor and Leonin Arbiter make its triggered ability a bit awkward, and a commander like Derevi could consistently keep Zur tapped down to prevent Zur from even attacking. I wouldn't flat out say "X gets around Stax pretty well" because Stax comes in many different forms and can hate a vast variety of targets. It really all depends on what the Stax player is packing. Zur wouldn't care if a Torpor Orb hit the board, but he would need to find an out quick if Rule of Law did for example.

The white splash would be useful, but it would weaken my own manabase. With Leonin Arbiter I think I should probably play fetches myself, but surely this deck would function in Selesnya colors too.

Have you thought about splashing white? It’d give you access to Leonin Arbiter which can ruin an opponents landbase even quicker when you’re ghost quartering (and also wrecks their fetches). It’d also give you access to Knight of the Reliquary who can find you key land pieces (giving you more reliability on drawing ghost quarter, or the other lands) and also allows you to run a single Gavony Township which could be very useful in grindy games

Ovlibion on Hello Kitty

I made a kitty list so i´ll bring a few suggestions for ya! Leonin Vanguard, Steppe Lynx, Sacred Cat, Adorned Pouncer, Leonin Arbiter, Prowling Serpopard, Leonin Warleader, Regal Caracal

And of course everyones favourite kitty! (There's a lot of Ajanis and all of them fits in a midrange-creature based deck so up to you but this two are my preferences) Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants
