Magus of the Tabernacle Discussion

dzapf2008 on Deck for Max

Really nice deck jbuhelt. I have a few suggestions. I would get rid of the 4 Oblivion Ring and add Anointed Procession or Bone Splinters. I would also get rid of Magus of the Tabernacle and max out the other creatures. Check out my similar deck: Demons Devouring Humans.

Definitely true that opals & germ tokens don't survive long with Culling Scales. If nothing else, an opal is a fast throwaway mana, similar to simian spirit guide. I've thought about changing them out for lands, but they've been useful early-game when I need metalcraft for Dispatch.

As for germ tokens, I usually opt not to pay their upkeep tax from Magus of the Tabernacle... this way, Culling Scales gets to target an opponent's permanent (by midgame, nearly any non-Tron deck is offering a handful of nice targets for Scales), & then Batterskull gets equipped to a Magus or colossus.

A few times I've tried swapping out Magus for Lodestone Golem (love those guys). Sometimes they work really well... not so well against Affinity.

dbpunk Magus of the Vineyard, Magus of the Library, Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Jar and Magus of the Future would like a word with you :)

That being said there was already Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Arena, Magus of the Scroll, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Abyss and Magus of the Mirror before they made Magus of the Will and Magus of the Wheel.

So the current magus breakdown is: White 3, Blue 3, Black 4, Red 4, Green 3. So You could be in luck with them evening out the total number of magus!

Je nachdem b du lieber uf Boardwipes gasch wri da no paar include, oder susch meh sac outlets als nume Ashnod's Altar mit steal effects. Ich glaub wipes sind meh reliable wil als stax deck dis goal isch dass niemer wirklich vil creatures het.

I definitely wasn't suggesting to take out mana web. That card is legit and prevents people from playing on their turn and interrupting you on yours. You should absolutely be playing War's Toll which combos beautifully with Magus of the Tabernacle in these sort of decks. It makes them save all their creatures or cast spells since the mana would leave their mana pool at the end of the upkeep. War's Toll also stops people from attacking frequently because they don't want their utility creatures to die that they normally would never attack with.

Thought of a couple more bears:

Magus of the Tabernacle

Windborn Muse

Kataki, War's Wage: maybe not the greatest if you're running lots of equipment

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker

High Priest of Penance

Containment Priest

Pendrell Mists and Magus of the Tabernacle shuts off most mana dorks and token strategies. Dissipation Field is a great pillow fort card. World Queller + Drownyard Temple lets you kill the same land every turn...he also combos with Sun Titan. If you ran green sorcery based ramp instead of artifact based then Energy Flux is great. If not then Thran Dynamo could go in too. Mystic Remora is another good one. Mist of Stagnation can lock out someone if combined with gtaveyard hate like Tormod's Crypt. Happy gathering!!

abby315 on Pattern Recognition #32 - Functional ...

TheRedGoat: As far as Wheel of Fate and Magus of the Wheel versus Wheel of Fortune, those are just examples of Wizards reworking and trying to make balanced versions of unbalanced, older cards. The Magus cycle in particular is meant to be the effects of older, powerful spells and noncreature permanents stapled to creatures to make them more vulnerable. (Magus of the Moat for Moat, Magus of the Tabernacle for The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, etc.)

A functional reprint is an exact reprint of a card, the only difference being the name. Like the article says, Elvish Mystic is a functional reprint of Llanowar Elves. It wouldn't even be a functional reprint if it was, say, an Elf--Soldier instead of Elf--Mystic (though Wizards has said they won't do functional reprints in this fashion either for the Reserved List cards).
