Loyal Retainers Discussion

Out goes Weathered Wayfarer in comes Loyal Retainers. Weathered Wayfarer more often then not is a dead drop any time after turn 4 since this deck doesn't rely on any land tricks. It's a powerful card for sure, but I just find I don't need it unless I get it on turn one or two. With Loyal Retainers I figured I could use it as a way to recur my prime hate targets of Preators and Avacyn when they are killed off or milled; plus a few other legendaries as there is six in total not counting the commander. We'll see how this works in the deck, but at least its a shiny Invocation if nothing else.

Looking mostly for Null Rod, Loyal Retainers, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Serra Ascendant, Mana Vortex

And also for foil versions (but still interested in nonfoils) of Stony Silence, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Rancor, Bident of Thassa, Arcane Laboratory, Rule of Law, and Seeds of Innocence . Not interested in the promo thalia.

Here is my mostly up to date binder. Thanks for looking!

Could put a Gift of Immortality on the Loyal Retainers too, and equip it with a Skullclamp or a Deathrender . That gives me ideas...

Aethaleon I like the swap for Knight of the White Orchid for Loyal Retainers I don't know why it never crossed my mind. I like the card a lot but if I don't abuse it early on I always felt it was a dead draw so this should be a solid swap. I will playtest Gideon Jura for Rule of Law tonight when I hit up the shop!

Aethaleon Mind's Eye is good, and I have considered adding it. Card draw is great, but it isn't a priority addition. I have cards like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in this deck for game enders with card draw. If I play him, and he is not answered I win on the spot. Draw + 12/12 body + annihilator is just disgusting. I have enough cycling in this deck, and have played enough games where card draw is good, but doesn't need to be a priority. Currently my biggest priority is finding ways to add Gideon Jura, and Loyal Retainers as both cards could make this deck just painful to play against. Gideon Jura would work so well with Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Loyal Retainers would be insane due to the amount of pressure the legendary creatures in this deck force. If they are removed which of course players who play against this deck enough will be prepared to remove some of the big hitters asap, but Loyal Retainers adds an option to bring back cards that were answered. I really like Oketra's Monument , and I think I will just remove Pearl Medallion for it. Prototype Portal is interesting, and I will also give it a playtest. Thank you for the suggestions.

Looking for suggestions on what to add into my Mono-white deck. I am pretty deadset on finding a way for Loyal Retainers and Gideon Jura I think. They would be great additions but finding cards to remove for them or anything really has become difficult. Looking for suggestions on what to cut for cards from the maybeboard, and always open to other suggestions! Please suggest what to remove if you can!

For my Mono-white deck mainly I am looking for suggestions on what I should cut for potentially some cards in my Maybeboard, and of course I am open to suggestions! I currently really really want to fit Loyal Retainers as it would fit well in the deck however I need some enchantment/artifact removal but finding cuts for those type of cards has become quite difficult.... Looking for any help I can get on that one. Please shoot me any suggestions/opinions/cuts/whatever!

As for my Boros deck I am currently just looking for improvement! Any suggestion/cuts are welcome!!!!

As for the budget. There is none right now, I currently have a very good friendship with 2 vendors who can basically get me whatever I need so when making suggestions please don't let a price tag matter I can find a way with my job + connections I got. Please if you make a suggestion on what to add find a card to cut for it as well. Getting suggestions is great but not much I can do when I have no clue what to cut.

RUST-O Yeah I really wanna fit Loyal Retainers and Gideon Jura into this deck both would be so good. War Priest of Thune also would be great! So hard to find cuts. Only worthy cut I can find is Linvala, the Preserver for Gideon Jura ._.
