Masako the Humorless Discussion

Neotrup on Useing a tap ability while ...

A tapped creature cannot block, with the exception of if you have Masako the Humorless. This is the reason for the Vigilance keyword, to allow a creature to attack and then, because it's not tapped, block on your opponent's turn.

Hey there,

I am building her in a very similar fashion. You can see what I did here:

Oketra, True of Heart

One thing I did try and do was give blanket vigilance. Her tokens have it, and if you have Odric, Lunarch Marshal in play other things will as well, however she doesn't have it normally and her large indestructible butt is too nice to not have blocking.

I would try and run either something like Brave the Sands, Serra's Blessing or even Masako the Humorless.

Aurelia, the Warleader, Archangel of Tithes, Masako the Humorless, Nullmage Shepherd, Reconnaissance, Akroma's Memorial, Mother of Runes and, funnily enough, Gideon, Martial Paragon would all fit in with your untapping shenanigans theme.

This is approaching magical Christmas land, but Mangara of Corondor could exile multiple things if you were able to untap him multiple times.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary has quickly become a staple for me in EDH and I would highly recommend it. One card being a source of smoothing out your draws and card draw is invaluable.

First, let me start with I think you have some cool ideas going here. I like your angel theme.Is this meant to be a casual or competitive deck? If you're playing this deck as a casual "have fun with" deck, then great. If you are looking at making this more competitive, then we need to drop your mana curve, focus on more beatdown and get more removal.

I agree with chaosumbreon87. Drop the green completely as it isn't doing much for you except making your mana base more difficult to manage and opening you up to some crappy draws. Making the deck red/white cleans up quite a bit and should smooth out your draws from one game to the next. For competitive you'll need more removal. Condemn, Cavern of Souls, Lightning Helix, and Path to Exile are all good choices.

Now for the cards. Thundersong Trumpeter and Gideon's Lawkeeper are really weak "tap that dude" creatures that just don't provide enough use to really be effective. They don't have haste so you can't use them as anything other than blockers on the turn they enter the battlefield.

Both Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Nahiri, the Harbinger are good card, but you aren't getting that much out of them. You don't have any graveyard recursion, so anything you discard to Nahiri's +2 ability is wasted. Chandra's +1 ability is nice but I think you would get more use out of other cards. I think you would get more use out of mana artifacts or more low cost creatures than you do from the planeswalkers.

I would replace the two Glory of Warfare for two Spear of Heliod. The ++ bonus applies to all of your creatures all of the time and you get an additional removal effect as well.

So, depending on your collection and budget, here's some cards to look at in no particular order. Cathedral Sanctifier, Champion of the Parish, Soul's Attendant, Knight of the White Orchid, Kor Outfitter, Nearheath Pilgrim, Stonewright, Stormblood Berserker, Ranger of Eos, Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Clifftop Retreat, Sacred Foundry, Slayers' Stronghold, Archangel of Tithes, Masako the Humorless, Azorius Arrester, Lyev Decree, Devil's Play, Magma Spray, Boros Charm, Volcanic Geyser, Staggershock, Electrickery and other low-cost cards that provide more utility.

I use Weathered Wayfarer for mana fixing and accelleration in my angel deck. I'll post my casual angel deck build here in the next day or so.

As for your sideboard. I would add a least one more Leyline of Sanctity. I think 4 Runed Halo is too many. Maybe two or three. Consider Vandalblast, Disenchant, Oblivion Ring and some other artifact and enchantment removal spells.

Sticking with named characters here: Fumiko the Lowblood,Rakka Mar, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Tymna the Weaver, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Masako the Humorless and Sakiko, Mother of Summer are all ladies I have enjoyed playing with in EDH. I think all of them fit your general strategy fairly well as well.

I know she is not a dwarf but I can't help but suggest Masako the Humorless as she allows your dwarves and vehicles that are tapped to block even though they are tapped.

Also Sram, Senior Edificer needs to be in this deck for the card draw. He's also a dwarf.

Maybe add Heart of Kiran? I love this vehicle personally in my superfriends deck.

I am not sure that proliferate is doing too much for you in this deck..... I personally would cut those cards for something more impactful.

Other Suggestions I would push are, Obelisk of Urd naming vehicles, or dwarves if needed, Tempered Steel, Karn, Silver Golem, Enlightened Tutor, Peacewalker Colossus, Untethered Express? to name a few.

DaringApprentice on Captain Sisay & Tennille

No problem, and thank you for the suggestions! I already have Yeva, Nature's Herald in the deck, so that's taken care of, and Akroma's Memorial and Champion's Helm are unfortunately out of my budget. I like the suggestions of Heliod, God of the Sun and Nylea, God of the Hunt, but I do already have a quasi-vigilance granter in Masako the Humorless (note that her ability allows creatures to block even after using tap abilities, not just attacking) and two trample granters in Dragon Throne of Tarkir and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, so I'll probably just stick with those.

Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant is a pretty sweet card, but I really only have Dragonlord Dromoka, Bow of Nylea, and Swords to Plowshares for lifegain in this deck, so I have a hard time seeing myself flipping this. Thoughts?

However, I forgot how incredible Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be! Although I already have quasi-vigilance, trample, and deathtouch granters for my whole board, it would be great to have a way to share first strike, flying, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, menace, and reach among all of my creatures. So many sick keywords! I have replaced Kodama of the North Tree with Odric, Lunarch Marshal.
