Lingering Souls Discussion
5 days ago
I think that splashing with black might be the way to go since it would give me access to the flashback feature of Lingering Souls . I like the idea of Priest of Forgotten Gods but I don't think sacking tokens would be a good idea without a way to get them back. I was toying with the idea of using Furystoke Giant as another possible win-con where I turn all the tokens into Shock essentially. Use Cloudshift to bounce Furystoke Giant to recreate the effect, but this would mean going a different direction as far as color splashing but it would open the door to Impact Tremors . The Furystoke Giant was my main idea when I started putting this together but I started looking into as many token generating cards as possible and red sort of worked its way out of the deck. Honor of the Pure seems like a must have card in this build as well as Anointed Procession , I knew there was a card like this out there and that you'd know what it was! I agree that Champion of the Parish probably is not the best fit here, most of the tokens generated aren't specifically human, at least not enough to make it a game changer. What do you think of the Furystoke Giant combo, any cards you think would tie into the general concept?

if you're going pure tokens (and dropping the artifact part) then you don't really need token doublers like Anointed Procession . those cards are too slow imo, especially if playing in modern. it doesn't do anything when its cast, so at best it won't have an effect until turn 5. the cards you'd be using to create the tokens would cost less mana and end up being played before the Anointed Procession anyway. its also advisable to splash a 3rd color. as far as i know, blue doesn't have too many token effects compared to other colors. black offers Lingering Souls and Bitterblossom , and green has several cards that benefit from having more creatures in play like Huatli, Radiant Champion or Wayfaring Temple .
as far as "staggering the same effect through different cards", that only matters if someone is playing something that affects all cards of the same name, like Maelstrom Pulse . those types of effects don't really come up often enough to worry about it.
and finally, a Myr deck would be a different deck entirely.

- Unlike Mogis, it is nonlegendary, so extra copies still work.
- They lose 3 life instead of 2.
- It is not limited to just creatures.
- The sacrifice/discard is not optional.
That last one is the most important, because the opponent won't be able to choose to take the damage while they have cards in hand or nonland permanents on the battlefield. This is relevant because Death's Shadow and any deck that can keep a creature larger than a 2/2 on the battlefield would win the race by choosing to take damage every time.
As an enchantment, Mogis just doesn't impact the battlefield nearly enough.

lagotripha, while that does seem like a good spell to help keep priest or pyromancer around, white is really only for Lingering Souls and Secure the Wastes . I'm not sure I want to go too much farther into white card territory. What do you think about Claim / Fame ? Not exactly protection but it is another way to pull things out of the yard like Kolaghan's Command

This deck looks like it would have fun with Warstorm Surge .
You would need more Red mana probably, and yes... a token that is a COPY OF A CARD IN PLAY copies everything printed on that card, including its CMC.
Tokens generated by a spell or permanents effect (Zombie tokens, Lingering Souls , etc) do not have a CMC.

rolfMTG Thanks for the advice. I figured Abzan Charm would be too slow, but I had the pair lying around. What's your opinion on using mana dorks for the one drop slot? And do you think it'd be a good idea to cut down on some creatures to put in one drops since I'm already at 20 (and haven't filled out the mana base yet)?
sp3ctr3 I've considered Lingering Souls before. It's a really solid card, just a little hard to find at my LGS. That Vizier of Remedies combo looks really interesting. Might have to mess around with it and find a sac outlet
