Leyline of Sanctity Discussion

Reznorboy on Vizier of Remedies Combo Deck

I would consider replacing Shalai, Voice of Plenty with Leyline of Sanctity and/or Rebuff the Wicked . It's a really good deck though.

Just brainstorming here, but when you're on the play (which is guaranteed to happen in a best of three, if you lose a game) if they begin with a leyline, you play Mountain and Crack the Earth . It's a rough trade, and it only works on the play to counter the turn 0 Leyline of Sanctity , but it might be worth considering.

I really like the idea of abusing sorin’s new passive! I have some suggestions

1: Ghostly Prison and Leyline of Sanctity don’t seem to be doing much. I think by turn 3 and four (when you would play ghostly prison or a topdecked leyline), you want to be playing your planeswalkers instead. I would go for early interaction instead, like Fatal Push and Path to Exile . I like the Kaya enchantment though.

2: I think you have better choices for Ob Nixilis Reignited and Chandra, the Firebrand . Especially nixilis. He’s kinda bad.

All of the following could be put in instead of nixilis or Chandra. He first few are kind of fringe choices that may or may not be good.

1: Angrath, Minotaur Pirate with lifelink would be insane, but he is a little spendy.

2: Chandra, Flamecaller ’s -X ability would also be crazy with lifelink, but she runs into the same problem than angrath does.

3: Chandra, Acolyte of Flame would just be there to buff up your red walkers

4: Gideon of the Trials could be a good defensive card, and he would he lifelink from sorin when he turns into a creature.

5: Jaya, Venerated Firemage would be an absolute bomb with sorin on the field.

6: Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted would be a better choice if you want at least one nixilis, since he synergizes with sorin’s passive

Heretic_Dragoon:

At first I was very skeptical about Labman Jace , regardless of everything the three blue is a steep cost to pay, but in the past couple weeks I have been proven very wrong thankfully. On the combo turn (4) all it takes is a couple prism and a land drop to reliably play him meaning the cost is already redundant, especially considering he draws as his plus. His resiliency is also a real upside as coming in at 5 insulates him from a lot, and if our opponent is dedicating 5 damage to Jace instead of us we are already winning considering we drew a card. The biggest plus from Jace though is that he has utility outside the combo, Labman really didn't unless you were using him as a blocker (which is already a pretty bad spot usually). New Jace is a card to be excited about in your hand as he isn't dead, in fact I have won multiple games now drawing a card with Jace into the combo. His one problem for me is that he is susceptible to Dovin's Veto like the rest of the deck, something that has come up a couple times, and is awful against Dredge and Hogaak if you play him out. All in all though, as much as it saddens me to see it go, at this moment I don't see a solid reason to play Laboratory Maniac over Jace, he just has more use, and represents the most meaningful upgrade the deck has received in a long time.

As for new cards, I have been left underwhelmed unfortunately, in fact, like most I suspect, WAR is having a bigger effect on my decisions than Horizons. Flusterstorm is a nice option to have and be aware of, but its hardly something to get excited over in a format like modern. Force of Negation is in the same boat, it's okay, but hard for us to reliably cast with the pitch, maybe a Peer Through Depths list could make better use of it.

From Core 2020, the Leyline of Sanctity reprint is a nice thing to have as it makes the deck more accessible but as for individual cards, there really isn't anything that has popped out at me, at least yet, with every set it takes a while to go through it all and see if there is anything that may be worth trying. Drawn from Dreams right now is the only card that intrigues me from Core 2020, but I really wish it was an instant, sorcery speed is a big knock against it. I'll probably still try it in the Mystical Teachings slot at an FNM or something to be thorough but I am not optimistic. Maybe with baby Teferi it could be okay, but I haven't been blown away by him in testing either. Maybe I'm missing something though, so please if you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them, but as of right now I don't think there is anything that slots into our deck from the new sets, from Horizons we got a couple nice sideboard options, but Core looks like it isn't adding anything here after my first pass of the set for new options.

Leyline of Abundance is a very, very hard pass. It’s good in theory. But even the best two Leylines, Leyline of the Void and Leyline of Sanctity are most definitely sideboard cards. I would also pass on Druid of the Cowl as it really only goes well with the enchantment I mentioned. It’s cool to ramp out a Nissa but Llanowar Elves is almost strictly better.

Evolution Sage is another great proliferate outlet for you.

You have some cards in here that I don't think really fit. Radiant Destiny doesn't really seem to be worthy of a slot. Intangible Virtue is better, but I'm not sure how important the vigilance aspect of it is for you. Aether Vial , Thran Temporal Gateway , and Quicksilver Amulet I think could be replaced by other cards that better fit what the deck wants to do. If you really want the effect, Elvish Piper does it better. I think I'd cut Leyline of Sanctity . The new Leyline of Abundance fits what you want to do better. If you still want the Leyline of Sanctity effect, Shalai, Voice of Plenty does it better for your deck, in my opinion.

Phyrexian Vault could be replaced with something better and repeatable, like Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or Greed . I'd also consider running cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to take advantage of sacrificing your creatures.

And here's some fun tech: Plaguemaw Beast + Thornbite Staff .

Hope this helps, and enjoy your Commander experience!

Rule of Law and Leyline of Sanctity are such fu.... up reprints. You could go even more bigger after sideboarding against these decks with more different planeswalkers and Sarkhan the Masterless .

GearsGames on Sleep Agent vs Player Hexproof

3 weeks ago

If the player has Hexproof via cards like or same effect as Leyline of Sanctity and I play Sleeper Agent Do they still get control of it or does it stay on my side of the field of play?

I feel like it should stay with me but, it's moving to their field of play so just wanted to double check since it's language states that it targets a player. (In this case one that is untargetable via Hexproof).
