Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero Discussion

Glad to see another Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero Deck out there. +1 form me. Maybe you want to have a look at my deck: Lin Sivvi's Rebels. Some suggestions from me:

hybrid_theory on It’s Harvest Time

I've played a lot of reaper king decks including the tribal tribal version. I highly highly recommend Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero , Skyshroud Poacher , etc. as repeatable changeling tutors. Moggcatcher is particularly nice with Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Ringleader (2 + 4 mana over 2 turns == tutor at least 4 changelings). Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling combo is also conspicuously absent; it's totally on theme and very nice to have when facing down something like Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

As for tribal payoffs, one card that I've found to be really good with a bunch of changelings in play is Voidmage Prodigy , especially because this deck has no counter magic otherwise. I also really like Gemhide Sliver for ramp and Azami, Lady of Scrolls for card draw.

On the topic of more general recommendations, Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are excellent ramp in these kinds of decks. For additional vindicate triggers, I really like Flameshadow Conjuring (which goes infinite with Deadeye Navigator and Bloom Tender fyi). Finally, Conflux is usually fantastic.

Here's my (slightly outdated) list if you're interested

SirQuixano on Morophon Elementals

I would look at all the changeling available to you, since they count as elementals but are usually cheaper on mana. If you do choose to play a good amount of changelings, I'd suggest cards like Ayula, Queen Among Bears , Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero , and Reaper King . Some other useful cards are the monuments, such as Oketra's Monument and Rhonas's Monument since elemntals are usually costly. Mirror of the Forebears and Mirage Mirror are also quite good. the two five color elemntals may actually be worth it due to morophon.

SirQuixano on Scarecrow

I would like to recommend Ephemerate , which would just basically be a spell that says 1 white, destroy a permanent, then destroy a permanent at the beginning of each of your upkeep, granted you have a scarecrow on the field. Valiant Changeling will usually just cost 2 white because of other changelings for a 3/3 Doublestriker. Morophon, the Boundless is also just a powerful card that makes things easier to cast in the lategame, especially your commander. Mirror Entity is a great spell for a lategame rushdown. If you really want to, throw in Amrou Scout , Defiant Falcon , and/or Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero to pull out important changelings from your library. Throw in some monuments, like Bontu's Monument and Oketra's Monument to help ramp while gaining benefits for playing your scarecrows and changelings. If you like your changelings enough, maybe throw in a sliver like Talon Sliver or Dregscape Sliver to get even more use out of them. I fyou like these, you may want to lean more into white in your mana base.

Well... i'll just do TypicalTimmy's challenge
Mass Reincarnation
Sacrifice any number of creatures. For each creature sacrificed you may search your library for a creature and put it onto the battlefield, or you may return a creature from your graveyard to your battlefield.
Like a mass, limitless, birthing pod. Make a new Legendary Rebel (For reference of what rebels do see Ramosian Sergeant or Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero )

Play. Get obliterated, but play anyway; you'll gain experience and make new friends as well.

Here's a word on mana for the noob: Decide how many turns you want to go before you can afford to miss a land drop, add that number to six, and then that gives you the ideal ratio for your deck.

For example (going old school) in Rebels, you want to be able to fetch Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero through Defiant Falcon by turn four. Additionally, you have Wrath of God and Parallax Wave , both of which cost four. So the deck can live off four mana just fine. Less than that and you run into problems.

So, four mana in four turns. Starting with your initial seven, then over turns 2, 3, and 4 you draw one card each, making a total of ten cards, four or which need to be land. 4/10 = 40%. 40% of 60 is 24 land. This is how they arrived at that number.

So look at what you want your deck to do, decide how many turns you want to go before you can afford to miss a land drop, and apply that ratio to the whole deck.

Consider Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero ? Can tutor any changeling onto the battlefield

Also, Coat of Arms gives each changeling +1/+1 for each creature on the field (including opponents). It will help your opponents too, but will help your changelings more
