Mana Tithe Discussion
5 hours ago
I would consider adding Horizon Canopy over Gavony Township, if not for the cycling effect but that Township is quite slow and not really a great effect, imo. Maybe replace Mana Tithe with Porphyry Nodes? Maybe Suppression Field?

Finally! Someone is running Mana Tithe!
Overall, this deck seems very, very good. Perfect amount of lords, removal, hatebears, creatures, everything. I would play it if I was not broke and could afford it lol
Have you tried Legion's Initiative? Increases your creature's toughness, and helps you survive a board wipe.

Hey Frank. I have been posting quite a bit on the deck, but I think it's worthwhile to have a transparent discussion so that anyone who wants to make suggestions can see our line of thought with changing the deck. Hopefully the TappedOut admins don't get to me :P
I have posted another update with possible changes based on your most recent long list of suggestions. I think many of the ideas are valid and will definitely try them out when I have the money / time.
As for the last few posts:
I enjoyed doing the game writeups. I'll try to mention my mulligan and opening hand more often; I couldn't remember everything after the game had ended. I will try to do more in the future.
Your change definitely makes sense. Pact of Negation as a way to interrupt a combo interrupter is a great idea, and since your list is faster it would make more sense for you to try to combat spot removal.
That average CMC is solid; we can safely dump our hand and refill in most cases.
I have looked at slotting Blasphemous Act for some of my weaker enchantments.
That's what I anticipated. Playing both altars as a redundancy effect allows us more ways to combo out than just relying on Ashnod's Altar, and playing Mistbind Clique gives us another pseudo win condition alongside Bloodline Necromancer. Our opponents thus have to worry about four cards as opposed to two.
Wanderwine Prophets is interesting in my meta where not everyone plays a ton of creatures. Some people in my pod play very few creatures and, if they do, they're usually weak and can be removed easily. I have been able to land the combo a few times and it wins on the spot. It's not something that I would tutor for, but is a huge threat and at the very least can be played to bait removal.
Gamble is probably being slotted in for one of my worse wizards when I have the money for it.
Six counters should be fine, at least in my opinion. I assume you're still running Patron Wizard and I know you run Voidmage Prodigy, so we have 6 true counters, a recurrable Mana Tithe effect, and a likely few counters out of Voidmage. That should be enough in my opinion.
I was looking at possibly adding Chain of Vapor also. Thoughts?

I've chosen Ghostly Prison over Archangel of Tithes because of my local meta. There are some really fast aggro boardswarm decks like Elves. In my playtest, waiting until turn 4 + they need to pay 1 less mana with Archangel of Tithes was not worth it. Of course Archangel of Tithes would fit the main strategy of the deck much more and is also a viable option for the sideboard.
The ideal starting hand is at least 1x Plains with 1x Weathered Wayfarer or 2x Plains and some low drops. Mulligan in this deck is pretty hard to take. Mulligan to 5 can cost you already the game. But one mulligan is ok if you have 2-3 really high drops (Angels).
Sideboarding 4xNevermore against decks that rely on ONE strategy to win like combo decks or some real cheesy stuff.Mana Tithe is good against Midrange/Control decks that curve out at every turn. Most of the time, it's enough to say that you play Mana Tithe in Sideboard. The psychological effect will make them play around it even if it's not sideboarded.Leyline of Sanctity is important if they play hand disruption.
@BallzanyaBaneslayer Angel and Blinding Angel are nice drops, but i had to cut it to Legendary Angels only. It is much funnier to play with Tutor effects like Thalia's Lancers and searching for what you need.
Acolyte's Reward seems nice. Need to test it.

In short, yes I would generally consider taking out Disfigure. Something to consider is that Beckon Apparition is largely good because of its synergy with Nightsky Mimic, so if you take that out, then maybe taking out Beckon Apparition would be better there. Mana Tithe is an interesting card, and I used to run 1 in my SB, but I'm not convinced yet of its value outside of an attrition-style control deck which might be a good transformative sideboard option.
Glad you've been enjoying the deck! Thanks for the input, and keep tinkering with it to find out what you enjoy and what works!

can't believe it hasn't been mentioned.
Just play black white tokens. It's fairly inexpensive to make, is the go to B/W deck, and is actually a good deck.
Your current list is halfway there, just add in 4x Spectral Procession and some Timely Reinforcements and you'll be there. Bitterblossom wouldn't be bad either. I'm not a token player so I can't give you the best exact list advice.
Mana Tithe would be the first thing I cut.
