Luminarch Ascension

Enchantment

At the beginning of each opponent's end step, if you didn't lose life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Luminarch Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.)

{{1,W}}: Put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield. Activate this ability only if Luminarch Ascension has four or more quest counters on it.

ClockworkSwordfish on Joke About the Trump Wall and the Avengers

If the whole idea is to keep your opponent's attackers at bay, then Luminarch Ascension and Azor's Elocutors have potential as win conditions. You could also try War Tax as a mana sink, since unlike a lot of the older taxing cards, it can still protect your planeswalkers.

multimedia on "Your Debt Has Come Due" (Teysa)

Hey, I like the idea of your deck, but I think you're going to have difficult time casting a lot of cards here and there's not enough repeatable control to stay alive long enough to cast Teysa. I don't think Voltron or Aristocrats are directions you want to go because there's better Commanders for those strategies. Consider more control and more opponent disruption?

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of Silence
  • Arrest
  • Gift of Orzhova
  • Death Grasp
  • Brain Maggot
  • Despise
  • Hymn to Tourach
  • Castigate
  • Victim of Night
  • Curse of the Cabal
  • Assault Suit
  • Fireshrieker
  • Trepanation Blade
  • Argentum Armor
  • Obzedat, Ghost Council
  • Heartless Summoning

Other than Lashwrithe the other equipment is not doing much because you don't have enough creatures to support it and equipping to Teysa is unrealistic. Unless playing 1v1 Commander then other than Duress lots of other single card one opponent discard isn't impactful enough. Heartless Summoning seems like neat tech to ramp into Teysa or other big creatures, but it completely negates Teysa's 1/1 Spirits and both your Planeswalkers who make 1/1 tokens. For these reasons I would cut it because I think both Planeswalkers repeatable tokens and abilities are better then what Heartless provides.

I think you can take real advantage of Hushbringer because not playing a lot of creatures who have ETB abilities or graveyard interactions with die triggers. You're killing your opponents creatures, opponent die triggers could really hurt you. Hushbringer is powerful disruption in multiplayer Commander. I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

About ascenions: Luminarch Ascension is super powerful!

Forkbeard on Lyra Dawnbringer: Seek & Destroy

1 week ago

Thanks for the card ideas Prospekt, lots to consider here!

  • Endless Horizons is a gamble card in that the guaranteed land drops that come with it are certainly sweet, but the risk of losing EH + the exiled lands to removal is scary. I guess if you don't get too greedy with it and just grab a conservative amount of land it could be acceptable, I'm just not certain what I'd remove to make room for it
  • Dawn of Hope has been suggested a few times now and I like it. It's on theme and likely a reliable draw engine, I should get it in here
  • Mass Calcify is a great 1-sided wipe in theory, but a dead draw against other white decks of course. The casting cost is brutal too, I'd sooner run Wrath of God
  • I will say that Light from Within is a tempting anthem to add seeing as most angels have a minimum of in their casting cost
  • Brave the Elements ! The surprise factor would be great and I like the defensive/offensive versatility, I'm tempted to find room for this
  • Evangel of Heliod is a no go. Expensive to cast, off theme and is really just devotion good stuff
  • Luminarch Ascension seems like a no-brainer inclusion, but my experience with it has been rough. It turns into a game of 'don't let Forkbeard build those quest counters' and I just become the target. It's slow, draws hate & is win-more which is a shame because it's thematically awesome

  • Cheers :D

    burferking on Mathas, Bitter Hugs

    2 weeks ago

    I like your deck! It has a similar flavor to my Grixis Twisted Group Hug (No Pain, No Gain!), where I can help with cards and effects, but at a cost. The idea was a Zedruu the Greathearted , but with black, black being my favorite Mtg color. I invite you to take a look at my deck and draw some inspiration from it. One of the principles of the deck is that I don't target destroy/exile/counterspell anything; "that wouldn't be nice, from a good guy that helps you, eh?". I personnally found that Illicit Auction and Pain's Reward are such fun cards and can hurt a player so bad at the same time ! You could also consider any cards with the Join Forces and Tempting Offer mechanics. If I do help someone, it is not everybody, like I originally would have like. So to be honest, I may rename my deck "Grixis Bitter Hugs" -because I think it is more accurate than "Grixis Twisted Group Hug"- if you don't mind. While commenting, I took time to update my deck's description, which was pretty much empty before lol

    You could also add Anvil of Bogardan , Oracle's Vault , Outpost Siege , Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip, Bloodgift Demon , Indulgent Tormentor , Well of Lost Dreams ... Phyrexian Arena is a must, Rhystic Study is a beast (but pricy $), Mystic Remora is great and you could add also Braid of Fire , comboing with Luminarch Ascension . For more lands, add Land Tax , Knight of the White Orchid , Weathered Wayfarer , Sword of the Animist , Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Journeyer's Kite ...

    K1ngMars on Bait Card

    In my playgroup people seem to really hate on As Foretold . Three mana for a bait seems pretty good.

    Also Luminarch Ascension and Bloodchief Ascension are removed first than anything else, both of them having low CMC.

    This looks like fun. Sephara has a lot of potential in commander. Angel of Sanctions seems like a good removal addition, and Custodi Soulbinders like a good way to reliably generate flyers, as do Emeria Angel and Luminarch Ascension . Empyrial Storm could be fun to abuse with how Sephara, Sky's Blade gets around the commander tax.
