Leonin Relic-Warder Discussion

Zinrius on Brima, King dos Gato

Take off Leonin Relic-Warder, Moonsilver Spear, add Sram, Senior Edificer and Selfless Spirit

Obelisk of Urd, Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies are win-more cards, you may want to take off 2 of them, to add more presence, such as Monastery Mentor or protection with Crackdown

Another good adittion is Monastery Mentor, if you fear too many hits in the early/mid-game, a good adittion is Ghostly Prison, as most of the time, people wont choose to attack you, for they will want their resources to grow stronger.

Hey the.beanpole! Thanks for your comment!

I agree, Eliminate the Competition and Gaze of Justice have been removed, in favor of Darkest Hour and Ashnod's Altar.

Leonin Relic-Warder actually looks really great! Thank you! On a scale of 1 to 10, how worthwhile do you consider Voldaren Pariah  Flip to be? Twilight Drover was removed because it was a bit slow, but with Ashnod's that may change.

Enduring Renewal looks great, but I don't really care to cast artifacts, even if I can sac em.

Eliminate the Competition and Gaze of Justice seem a little redundant with what your commander is doing. I generally try to stay away from one-shot effects in this format unless they are really back-breaking or X-for-1s or something. Revoke Existence could easily be Leonin Relic-Warder to give you extra-sac fodder that still perma exiles if you time it right. I also play Voldaren Pariah  Flip in my Teysa deck. Twilight Drover is always good in token decks, especially Teysa, and provides a mana sink as well. There is also the Enduring Renewal + Ornithopter/Memnite/Phyrexian Walker combo that goes "infinite" with any of your free sac outlets.

acbooster on Quarantine Field and mana cost

1 month ago

For future reference, you should make a new question rather than comment on one that's 9 months old.

You declare X to be 4 and make the appropriate payment. Quarantine Field enters with 4 isolation counters on it and exiles 4 nonland permanents.

You exile it with, say, Leonin Relic-Warder and later on kill the Warder, bringing the Quarantine Field back. This time when it enters, there's nothing defining what X is so X defaults to 0, it'd enter with 0 isolation counters and exile 0 nonland permanents.

GS10 on Alesha, Who Combos

I've been working on my own list, but I think I can share some of my experience already.

Alesha is red, her ability requires double non-red hybrid mana, so most times It's hard to have a very aggressive start since we either start swinging soon, or fill our board soon. I've been avoiding playing Alesha on T3 or earlier, since I favour getting other creatures on board first, or cast spells like Buried Alive, Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, to make the most of her ability. More relevant, to fix the harsh colour needs of the deck, I run Chromatic Lantern. I also run bounce lands (Boros Garrison, Rakdos Carnarium and Orzhov Basilica) since with a slow start and nothing to do on turn 1, playing one of this on turn 2 gets you a free discard, which for Alesha is a form of card advantage.

I'd also recommend Big Game Hunter to round up your removal options and an additional combo in Leonin Relic-Warder and Animate Dead. Animate Dead the Leonin, target Animate Dead with it's ability, rinse+repeat. With Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat or Purphoros, God of the Forge, that's game. I've also been trying Daretti, Scrap Savant as a way to get even more card advantage (and it acts like a removal beacon as well, so people might waste resources on him even though he's not vital to the main plan).

Feel free to check my deck as well:

MindAblaze on One in the bush is worth two in the hands.

I have the Leonin Relic-Warder+Phyrexian Metamorph combo in here too, so Altar of the Brood does fit. I'll have to make space.

I like Necrotic Ooze, but it's kill on sight in my group. I used to have an all in infinite/infinite deck built around it. Life From The Stinkweed Scholar's Birthing Ooze. It's gloriously overkill. The best kind in my mind.

so no cat themed removal? on a more serious note, removal might heavily help this deck. For example, Crib Swap, Cataclysm, Felidar Cub, Leonin Relic-Warder. I can also see a lifegain strategy to win through Felidar Sovereign. mana fixing can also be in the form of Oreskos Explorer. Happy building.

Visage_EDH on Karador Multiplayer Boonweaver Combo/Control

Hey, I've been following your list for a while, made a lot of alterations of my own to the list, which I've seen your latest changes have somewhat incorporated.

I suspected that the shift to a more Tax strategy with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and other similar effects have somewhat hindered the decks own capabilities by making reanimation and tutors cost more, and had inverse effect against creature based strategies; Hence why I (And I assume you) swapped to Winter Orb and Hokori, Dust Drinker

I feel that the only problem I currently have with the list is that once you've dropped your hand, recovering without Karador is quite a hassle, especially without enough draw effects in the deck, but I'm not sure what other cards could be included to help draw more cards.

How has Blind Obedience and Thalia, Heretic Cathar worked for you in your deck? I've considered these effects for a while but am not sure if they're worth the slots as of yet.

Likewise, I cut Kataki, War's Wage and Eidolon of Rhetoric, as I felt they were underwhelming most of the time, and instead put in Grand Abolisher, but perhaps that's a meta call.

Not sure if you've noticed the interaction, but Leonin Relic-Warder can go infinite with Dance of the Dead and Animate Dead without a sac-outlet, provided Blood Artist is on field. Useful, as no-one ever sees it coming, which is why I've opted to put Necromancy back in.

Looking forward to a response!
