Lingering Souls Discussion

Catpocolypse on Oh Rats!

@clayperce Im going to have to disagree. I apologize if I'm being blunt Mrchargerlover, but this deck isn't going to be in a competitive tourney in while. It just isn't ready. So the fact that Declaration in Stone isnt popular in competitive doesn't matter. It is however much more effective in FNM control decks as a way to defend against token deck and against cards like Lingering Souls so it is much more likely be found in a place where this is being played.

It might be worth it to splash B or G in order to gain access to Lingering Souls and Collected Company respectively. Lingering Souls is simply Lingering Souls , I don't think that I should have to explain that. Splashing Green however, get access to 2 extremely powerful cards, those being Birds of Paradise and Collected Company . Birds of Paradise is a slippery mana dork with flying. Collected Company is a staple of many decks. It can create sooo many opportunities to completely turn a game on its head. It can put any of your creatures on the board and can get you back in the game, keep you in a game or secure you a dub. Plus it's an instant so there are some potential for shenanigans there.

Generally, I think Guttersnipe is a trap, it looks useful but too often it's just a terrible top-deck that costs 3 mana and has little to no impact when played. I'd take Soulfire Grand Master, Lightning Bolt and Night's Whisper to 4x rather than run the 3x Guttersnipe. Or maybe Bump in the Night to just replace the 3x Guttersnipe directly? The other aspect is this is fairly close to Mardu Pyromancer, so perhaps Bedlam Reveler or Lingering Souls have a place? In any event good luck with your brew, it does look interesting...

Up next: You've just cast Young Pyromancer and then you've cast Lingering Souls . Create a planeswalker that has CMC 4 and is either Mardu or a subset of the Mardu colours - - that would be quite good to cast on your next turn. And no, you can't just post Sorin, Solemn Visitor .

No. I have nothing that I want to discard. No Arclight Phoenix . No Lingering Souls . No Bloodghast . And I'm in blue so I have access to real cantrips that I'd rather play. And Faithless Looting is card disadvantage.

If I were to play another cantrip it would probably be Telling Time . Or maybe Opt , but Telling Time sets up Delver flips.

Skoodly: first off, i wasn't talking to you. second, who said anything about mono green devotion genesis wave decks? i certainly never did. and how does this list compare to the "competitive" lists you are referring to? and Gigantosaurus is not really "adequate" board presence in modern. its a vanilla 10/10. gets hit by lots of removal, or blocked by a Lingering Souls / Young Pyromancer token.

Oh, also, if you need to shave dollars to stay in your budget, I would start with Archetype of Courage , Fiendslayer Paladin , Gift of Immortality , Kazandu Blademaster , Lingering Souls (It's not legal in your colors to begin with, so that should be cut regardless), Mimic Vat , New Benalia , Prototype Portal (What is this even doing here?), Return to Dust ( Crush Contraband is roughly as good and much cheaper), Rogue's Passage (only really worth it in a voltron deck), Seal Away ( Crib Swap and Stasis Snare are better and cheaper), Sigiled Paladin , Silverbeak Griffin (how is a card from an intro deck a dollar, anyway?), and Thalia's Lancers .
