Leonin Arbiter Discussion

SeekerofSecrets on Mono Red storm

I disagree, Current gifts storm is susceptible to grave yard hate, cards that limit searching (Leonin Arbiter), and taxing affects like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Damping Sphere. this would only really be affected by taxing affects and I feel like building value through it is a decent way to deal with it

It's also important to note that UR storm uses bounce affects to deal with direct hate and counter spells to starve control decks. It doesn't really deal with the hate but rather just creates enough of a gap to push for a win

Leonin Arbiter is good enough for fetchlands.

suppression field is very meta dependent..

and for root maze is alright but taking in 3 spots instead of a removal like Path to Exile is a waste of spot. might as well put in Stirring Wildwood

if you want to keep them out of mana.. might as well put 1-2 Ramunap Excavator then grab Ghost Quarter multiple times.. similar to my deck GW Land Tax. but just keep it on the light side.

hey Eilel

I think Leonin Arbiter won't work. At least won't work when we play fetshlands, if we get a Manabase without fetshlands it would be perfect here.

I had the same thougt about Field of Ruin but not shure it its better to be abit more flexible whith the mana. Paying the 2 could be relavant.

I love Shadow of Doubt but I can't see it Maindeck

I think you're missing Leonin Arbiter, works perfect with your gameplan. I think Field of Ruin should move to the main, with Aven Mindcensor you yourself are still allowed to search.

For a fun blowout I'd say maybe 1/2 Shadow of Doubt. Replacing it self as well

Hoschie on Can you risk playing Leonin ...

Hi Guy's,

at first I thought Leonin Arbiter got a new friend in Assassin's Trophy and after a second: 3 colour Hatebears woun't work.

But this isn't what I want to talk about: My question is "is Leonin Arbiter still playable in Modern?"

Assassin's Trophy will be brutal in the early turns when we have a Leonin Arbiter on the battelfield. So can we risk playing it? Does it stll texes you opponen more than us? or has Hatebeas to change?

And at least in the first month we will see a ton of Assassin's Trophy

Greetings Hoschie

You could try bigger delve creatures like Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Gurmag Angler as your top end, they're hard to kill with most common removal and can close games quickly. Some amount of Path to Exile seems important since you can't get rid of anything over 4 mana otherwise. Ghost Quarter is a good way to hit utility/tron lands or disrupt greedy mana bases that can get lands into the graveyard for free, you could lean further into the disruptive side with Leonin Arbiter also since you aren't playing fetches (not counting the Evolving Wilds since they can be swapped in some number for the Ghost Quarters) and Traverse the Ulvenwald is the only thing it conflicts with. Maybe try some extra silver bullet creatures also in the SB like Kataki, War's Wage and Eidolon of Rhetoric, they can swap spots for similar stuff already there and would synergize with traverse. Lots of your lands can enter tapped also, maybe try some painlands? The shocks are also being reprinted and should be easy to get a hold of soon. Seems like a fun deck to play!

Cards that allow you to search your library actually say "search," like Demonic Tutor. Leonin Arbiter disables those effects.

Ancient Stirrings and similar cards don't search a library, they merely look at part of it. They ignore the Arbiter's ability.
