Magus of the Moat Discussion

dlamars on I'm Looking for Enchantments Like ...

Just a tip, I wouldn't run Propaganda like cards since they only serve to make attacking your planeswalkers more attractive. Sphere of Safety, Norn's Annex and/or cards like Magus of the Moat/Peacekeeper are much better.

Thanks for the suggestions MoGoose831.

Archon of the Triumvirate i think this card is too much mana for so little effect... Only 2 creatures, and besides he as too attack, in most of times it ll be a suicide attack. For that i would prefer : Blazing Archon but its easely targeted so its on my maybeboard.

Mystic Decree+Magus of the Moat: you lock yourself with this card (combo), i rather have global effects that dont punnish me.

Hmm I am working on an EDH bird tribal myself and so I found yours. I really think that you are missing out on some of the best cards in your deck: Soulcatchers' Aerie, Door of Destinies, Magus of the Moat, Cryptic Gateway, Shared Triumph, Gravitational Shift and I am sure that there are even more. Also there are a lot of bird token generators, like Call, Flurry of Wings, Migratory Route and there are even more.

The next thing is your commander: At least I would start to abuse it more, like with Basalt Monolith or enchantments like Dawn's Reflection to ramp to he moon! Bear Umbra would also be too great as a combo, when you use expensive abilities.

Thanks for the feedback! After this tourney I will have a much better understanding of what needs to happen in the sideboard... Extraction is pretty super, we will see. Presently I have Rest in Peace to deal with that deck... but i suppose extraction also works well with skittles decks, killing off all of their Kiln Fiends. Hmm....

As for Magus of the Moat, here is my thoughts on it... four mana is really steep to slow down agro.. but also, four mana that doesn't synergies with any of the other things in the deck (Cavern of Souls for uncounterable, Drogskol Captain and Favorable Winds for anthems) and doesn't even survive the bolt test seems even worse. If there was a way to get him out of bolt range I would be much more down with committing a slot to him... I just am not convinced it is that great.

Have you considered Surgical Extraction in the sideboard? That could help remove Griselbrand in the matchup stated above, among other things.

Spell Pierce or Mana Tithe could be some cards to look at for your control.

Also, gonna support the above post - a sided in Magus of the Moat would stop many aggro decks in their tracks.

Looks like a fun deck! Good luck with your championships!

The reason for the mana leaks is for combo decks that really rely heavily on one card, such as re-animator decks. Being able to counter a Goryo's Vengeance feels pretty good when they are going all in on the glass cannon. I don't think I will need Magus of the Moat as my deck runs pretty fast and can be comparable to other agro decks with the plus of everything flying.

Maybe replace 1 or 2 Mana Leaks with Magus of the Moat, but no more than that.

Personally, I love Magus of the Moat, but I don't know what I'd replace with it.
