Magister of Worth Discussion

TheRedGoat on Vish Kal, The Sword in the Darkness [[Primer]]

So how well would you say the deck could preform with Magister of Worth or Restoration Gearsmith ? I have built Vish kal myself but not in a long time and my version played more like a stax-lite Golgari deck. I would stall out the early game with recursion for slow removal enchantments or creatures and just keep bringing those back turn after turn as my board grew. It was no where near the power of "degenerate" decks if that helps explain my play style.

I understand temple bell can work well with smothering tithe but most of the time you will not have both and generally everyone draw 1 cards are not good unless your entire strategy is built around them. An enchantment like Underworld Connections would suit this deck much better if you needed the draw. To clarify im not saying Phyrexian Processor is a bad card i just think it is too much of an investment for what it makes, adding a combo or even a different bomb i think would be better, Aetherflux Reservoir i think would be a better outlet for your life (but would add a combo finisher first).

removal you might consider:



Anguished Unmaking

Path to Exile

Swords to Plowshares

a couple of less good situational removal

Seize the Soul = Value

Gideon's Intervention = stop decks that require thier commander

board wipes to consider:

Magister of Worth

Kaya's Wrath

Cleansing Nova

Merciless Eviction = be careful what of yours get exiled

and the two edengstrom1 suggested I would recommend running a couple even if a lot of the time they sit in your hand too long before they become necessary, some board states you just cant come back from.

Hey, good start.

Budget ($3 or less each) lands to consider adding to improve the manabase:

The Cycle lands and Barrens are cards with cycling to power Astral Drift. Since they're lands they don't take up valuable deck spots to include more cycling.

Budget Angels/Demons/Dragons and cards that have good interaction with them to consider adding:

If making blink a theme because of Kaalia then consider including more strong Angels/Demons/Dragons with good ETB abilities to be able to blink them.

Budget card upgrades to consider:

Other cards to consider cutting:

  • Cinder Barrens
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Myriad Landscape
  • Scorch Spitter
  • Rakdos Firewheeler
  • Scampering Scorcher
  • Segovian Angel
  • Vesperlark
  • Virtus the Veiled
  • Volcanic Dragon
  • Zombie Infestation

Joe_Ken_ on Help with Teysa

An angel I have I lot of fun with in my Teysa deck is Magister of Worth since it either comes in as a board wipe or will let everyone set their boards back up which they generally won’t want since you should have some good death trigger stuff in your grave before casting it. Also Seraph of the Scales is another good creature since she makes 4 tokens on death when Teysa is out and makes it pretty hard form someone to attack into you.

Ben's Recommendations:


Worn Powerstone

Mind Stone

Armillary Sphere or Wayfarer's Bauble

Black Market

Burnished Hart

Solemn Simulacrum I know, he's annoying and expensive and in every deck but he RAmPS AND DRAWS AND IS COLOURLESS LIKE BLEH

Pristine Talisman Triggers your life-gain abilities.



Gravestorm MAN that theming

Ob Nixilis Reignited one of THE cheapest walkers around

Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

Krav, the Unredeemed and his partner Regna, the Redeemer can generate card advantage by searching for each other, seem to be on theme (life gain and tokens are both parts of this deck, see your commander for details, but krav specifically lets you draw a shit TON of cards. Also, gives you some sac outlet ability and ridiculously tiny activation cost)

Necropotence this IS a more expensive card and with good reason. But of all the "more expensive card draw" cards i believe it is the LEAST more expensive. Seriously this card blows games out. (SIDENOTE this works SUPER WELL with your axis of mortality, necropotence yourself to 1 in response to the trigger then swap with someone to go right back to 35)

Harvester of Souls Gimme card draw for your creatures. Tax'ing the hell out of the entry to hell.

Actually on-theme cards that are really mean:

Magus of the Abyss There's a REASON people refer to chumping every turn as abyss-ing

Infernal Darkness a card you can probably find for 3$ or less, ruins people's happy fun times (except you)

Call to the Grave See above regarding magyss of the abyss.

Patron of the Nezumi Pay the death tax

World Queller This one's especially spicy cause you can choose a permanent type you DON'T have one of.

Angelic Arbiter A little high on the curve tbh but does make your opponents choose combat or spells

Aura of Silence I really think this is a must-have card for this strat.

Archfiend of Depravity New government law, every player shall have no more than 2 creatures. Communism at work, the government gets as many as it wants.

Magister of Worth A VERY thematic board wipe. (it will ALWAYS be a board wipe)

Cliffhaven Vampire For all those extorts and life linkers.

High Priest of Penance

Karmic Justice

Leonin Arbiter Seriously punishes decks with greedy manabases and green decks

Aven Mindcensor See Leonin Arbiter

Oathsworn Vampire This guy is great card advantage and a recurrable chump for your "symmetric" forced sacrifice effects

Windborn Muse Better than Baird IMO

Orb of Dreams EVERYTHING is tapped

Utter End Seems to me a better card than Mortify, even if it costs 1 more.

Thalia, Heretic Cathar

Hushwing Gryff Flash torpor orb fucks SO MANY DECKS

Descent into Madness Although this is only particularly strong if you have a huge draw-engine to keep exiling bad cards from your hand instead of permanents.


Words of Waste Can be powerful but may require too much tuning of mana/draw to be actually good.

Kataki, War's Wage expensive but powerful effect.

That's all for now. too many options honestly.
