Loxodon Gatekeeper Discussion

DocProc95 on Could one sacrifice Hokori, Dust ...

2 weeks ago

I'm in the process of creating an Alesha, Who Smiles at Death EDH tax and stax deck. My thoughts are... if I could sacrifice Hokori, Dust Drinker (to any mana-less outlet like Altar of Dementia) after my opponents un-tap step, then recur him during my combat, I would completely break the symmetry of his affect. Furthermore (and this is my question) I was curious to see if it was possible to sacrafice him after his first ability resolves on my opponent but before his second ability, effectively locking my opponent out of mana (especially with Loxodon Gatekeeper). To put it more plainly... is it possible to use an activated ability after an opponents un-tap step but prior to their upkeep?... and in the described scenario, how would it play out? (I'm newer to Magic of this comes across as obvious.)

Just some card suggestion(s):

  1. Loxodon Gatekeeper
  2. Arrest

NV_1980, the Muscle Burst effect is irrelevant, as Kamerot says. But I'm hesitant to take the Diligent Farmhand out specifically because he's one of my only turn 1 plays. However, looking back at my ramp cards, I'm going to try taking out Shefet Monitor - it's ok, but 4 mana is a bit high for ramp.

And yeah, Loxodon Gatekeeper is a good call - it's a new card I added hoping that making lands enter tapped would slow everyone down (slowing enemies down seems to be more effective than speeding myself up in this deck), but 4 mana is a bit slower than I would like to get that effect. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi m8,

If you'd be willing, I'd try replacing Diligent Farmhand with Weathered Wayfarer. I think Wayfarer is just a little bit more efficient (although I have to admit I still have no clue what exactly that muscle-burst thing is for). I think I would replace Loxodon Gatekeeper with either Grand Abolisher or Aegis of the Gods.

Hope this helps. By the way, I would really appreciate someone of your building skills having a look at one or more of my decks.

Happy gaming!

Your aiming for a mono white deck with an artifact focus, so what about Toolcraft Exemplar, if you were running some 0 cost artifacts like Bone Saw or Accorder's Shield I'd suggest Glint Hawk. Also your not really taking advantage of casting cost reduction effect as your deck is cheap to cast... Maybe you could use Loxodon Gatekeeper to stall your opponent.

Part of me thinks this deck really wants Sram, Senior Edificer and maybe some vehicles because you don't want to be attacking with your creature based enablers.

Nice deck man! I was about to recommend you Cathars' Crusade it's jut insane in this deck with all the tokens, Coat of Arms is also crazy, Door of Destinies is also great, and if you hace those you might wanna try Enlightened Tutor. Talking about creatures Loxodon Gatekeeper is very good cos, not only is annoying in many ways, but also your opponents cant block as easy. Also you might need something against flyers, maybe Commander Eesha.

Okay, I'm gonna throw out ideas for you and see what you think about them.

Pearl Medallion for mana reduction

Chalice of Life  Flip if you want to take advantage of life gain

Soul Warden, Goldenglow Moth (and to make Kyle mad), Prism Ring, Beacon of Immortality for life

Purity would throw people for a loop

For mana, Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Sol Ring, and maybe Sword of the Animist

Token production if you're interested would be Luminarch Ascension, Doomed Traveler, Thraben Doomsayer

Control cards would be Curse of Exhaustion, Oblivion Ring, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Blind Obedience, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Odric, Master Tactician

Bonus cards War Priest of Thune, Serra Ascendant, Aegis of the Gods, these are low mana drops that would also benefit from the zombie killing angel
