As well as some other cards that might be good:

Merciless Eviction : (You have about 0 ways to deal with artifacts or enchantments, and everyone will be playing with indestructible enchantments)

Erebos, God of the Dead : (You'll be able to turn on the devotion pretty easily, and the card advantage is soooooo important)

Whip of Erebos : (You don't have much actual reanimation that the exiling would interfere with, and the lifelink is surprisingly relevant.)

Abhorrent Overlord : He's sad you didn't come to him first. I've won a number of games off the ridiculous number of dudes he makes. Awesome with Whip.

Door of Destinies : Name humans.

Marshal's Anthem : Returns your demons as well as turning your apostles into more relevant creatures. I don't actually have this one though.

Gimmick on Oldschool Allies (U/W)

1 week ago

Took my Allies to an FNM Modern tonight, and it went great! I had a lot of fun and gained some insight on how to play my deck more effectively, as well as deciding what would help most to add or change.

First of all, I ran with a slight alteration of the above build. Negate was swapped evenly for the wider coverage from Spell Rupture , and I took out Marshal's Anthem and Lighthouse Chronologist for 2 Bioshift .

Match 1 was just the start of an interesting night. I was paired against a friendly gal with a U/B Mill deck. Funny that my first pairing would be against another mill player. I won the first game with double Halimar Excavator , Join the Ranks , and a spare Ally.

Games 2 and 3 didn't go as well, unfortunately. I made the mistake both times of keeping a starting hand without Halimar. Her dedicate mill quickly, and consistently, sent my Halimars to the grave before I drew them, and the life gain from Ondu Cleric s I got to stick was absolutely useless. I made a questionable move when I bated a counter spell with Jace Beleren , who may have been able to turn the tides late game. Oh, I did mention all the counter spells, right?

Match 2 was, again, a funny match. My opponent happened to be running a (standard-legal) extort deck, and my deck is capable of life gain. Fortunately for me, I was able to play my Clerics both games, and with Jwari Shapeshifter s and Join the Ranks I was able to shrug off his 3 damage extort + double Sanguine Blood.

I eventually beat him down with two beefed up Hada Freeblade s game 1 and milled him out game 2 (while at 108 life!). I did make one of my 3 favorite plays in game two, the first being when I used Rite of Replication to copy his Pontiff of Blight , giving my horde of Allies extort. Unfortunately (ok, not really unfortunately), I won the next turn and never got to extort him.

The other actually happened before that in the game. I kept a starting hand with, basically, Sea Gate Loremaster , some land, and a couple spells. Loremaster was the first creature I played, which was on turn 6. I luckily top-decked a Jwari, and started drawing extra cards each turn. I was so well off I discarded 3 lands at the end of one of my turns without a second thought.

Match 3 was against the boyfriend of the gal with the mill deck. He ran with a decently aggressive, mono-red deck. Game 1 quickly went to him, I think because I kept a horrible starting hand. After that I was much more aggressive with my mulligans, even winning one of the games with only a four-card hand (Plains, Island, Hada, Halimar). One of the games I milled him out, the other I pressured him with a couple Hadas and some Spell Rupture s. I finished the night 2-1, winning two packs.

My favorite play of the night happened when the red player used Traitorous Instinct to grab my 5/6 Hada, to which I responded with Bioshift . I ended up with my other Hada ramped to 7/8 and my opponent with a priceless look of discontent.

All in all, I'm very pleased at how well the deck still runs, seeing as these are the first changes I've made since I built the deck in 2010. I will be posting updates to the deck list soon.


UpsetYoMama on Karametra, Land Lubber

@amostelusivefish Thanks for the suggestions. I'll consider Stonecloaker and Fleetfoot Panther because of Flash. The others are okay, but I'd rather have something with more utility in the slot. Yeah, Aluren looks pretty sleazy, so I'm not going to run that.

You're right about the mana, and I have plenty of mana dumps in here for that: Genesis Wave , Heliod, God of the Sun , Nylea, God of the Hunt , White Sun's Zenith , Marshal's Anthem , and Planar Portal . I like Ant Queen as it's also a creature, and I'll consider it.

Tooth and Nail is a great card and I'm not sure how I overlooked it.

You're right about drawing cards; it's one of the biggest obstacles I've come across. So far I have Garruk, Caller of Beasts , Harmonize , Lead the Stampede , Sylvan Library , Planar Portal , and Soul of the Harvest . Running all of these I haven't had that many issues now. I also want to add Sensei's Divining Top and possibly Greater Good eventually. I have a copy of those but they are in another deck. If you're desperate, you can also use Oblation to target one of your own mana dorks to draw two cards. Hope that helps you on the draw side.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Thanks a lot! I'm also wondering about graveyard recursion in the deck. I know there's Marshal's Anthem and Sun Titan . What about Miraculous Recovery ? Is there anything else in mono-white?

Hey man, I really like this deck! I've been looking for a fun multiplayer deck since most of mine are super aggro and don't do well in multiplayer. This looks like a fun, good, and cheap one so I'm trying to build a similar one.

This would make it less budget, but I recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . With the amount of devotion you have it really helps out with mana.

With Brave the Elements I wasn't finding much use for Marshal's Anthem . One cool thing would be to use Mirror Entity . He does a few things for you:

I agree with PriestessKikyo1, Flickerwisp over Mistmeadow Witch . You can't tutor it, but the extra devotion/chroma and slightly less cmc to activate is worth it.

Lastly, I'd find some way to put in Knight of Meadowgrain . Cheap, helps devotion/chroma, tutorable by Kithkin Harbinger and all around really good card.

Sorry for the long post, but I really like this deck! Gonna check out your others too. Keep it up!

No prob! Like a kid in a candy store over here.

No surprise that Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth ($34) is my priority, but I at least have a passing interest in the following:

To be honest, I was simply going through my white cards and I found the Resurrection in there, I just threw it in for a little protection actually. Those are clearly better alternatives I'd like to mention lol so thanks for the suggestions. I really like Nim Deathmantle and Marshal's Anthem .

So you would suggest taking out Resurrection for either of these? Or are there other things you'd take out as well? Price
