Mentor of the Meek Discussion
20 hours ago
I'm worried that by adding "better cards" the deck is pricing itself out of where it's supposed to be. This deck was never intended to be super competitive. It's meant to be a fun casual deck. Please keep that in mind. I might actually rework this deck to remove the Karlov of the Ghost Council , Damnation , Wrath of God , and Godless Shrine . Replacing them with slightly lesser powered alternative would reduce the cost of the deck by half.
QUESTION: Is Mentor of the Meek the best card drawing engine for the deck? I think I like it better then Viscera Seer , since Viscera Seer is pretty much dependent on the Tombstone Stairwell already being be setup. Once it's setup, most games are going to be over quickly.

Hey SSK, nice to hear from you again, glad you're back :)
This is a big change from Dragons. Recently I've been playing Teysa in Commander, she's great fun. Have you ventured into Commander yet? I highly recommend it.
Your new deck looks good, but consider increasing the token strategy? Consider including some cards that give you more value from sacing creatures? Currently when you sac a creature or a creature dies you only get the Spirit token value. Consider Priest of the Forgotten Gods , Midnight Reaper and Mentor of the Meek ?
These cards give you draw value when creatures die or when ETB even tokens. Reaper is just a good card when you want your creatures to be dying. If price is a concern I can understand why you can't include him, but the draw is very much wanted; can get 4x Reaper for $20. Priest gives you more value then Pontiff when you sac creatures, but she does require to tap her and you have to sac two creatures, she's also more expensive price.
Tithe Taker is an upgrade of Oligarch, but the price might be an issue; can get 4x Taker for $8. With tokens you need ways to win a game consider Unbreakable Formation ? Casting this on your main phase can be game winning or you can hold it and cast it at instant speed to save tokens from a nonSettle board wipe or other removal. Seraph is by far the best afterlife creature, she's slowly increasing in price which sucks, but if you can get 2x more of her than it will help your deck.
Here's an example to consider:
- 4x Taker or Oligarch
- 4x Enforcer
- 3x Pontiff
- 1x Priest
- 4x Reaper
- 3x Ministrant of Obligation
- 1x Mentor
- 2-4x Seraph
- 2x Teysa
- 4x Mortify
- 1x Conclave Tribunal
- 1x Payment
- 2x Formation
- 2x Absolution
- 4x Shrine
- 4x Isolated Chapel or Orzhov Guildgate
- 9x Plains
- 8x Swamps
Good luck with your deck.

Well, I hope you can buy your cards in germany,. Often I hear about the enormous card-prices in the us. Is it the same in canada?
Yeah, you are right, but I am a very big fan, exchanging card. I mean, everybody has a big basic equipment of bulk rares, un-& commons and I can buy a 40cent card, or try to interchange it with person who needs something from me. For me, it's one of the elementary processes in playing magic. But you are right, sometimes, you have to buy the stuff. :>
About the changes: I play multiplayer much more often than 1v1, but I think also in multiplayer games, it is very important to have Arcades early on the board. And I play multiplayer as well as 1v1, so I have to build a deck which performs well in both gametypes. About Serra's Blessing , in my opinion, vigilance is, especially in multiplayer, great. I also think about adding Reconnaissance but I have only one and it's in my Licia, Sanguine Tribune -Deck. So I took Serra for the moment. About Propaganda and Ghostly Prison , there is no doubt, they are great, but Propaganda is already in my nekusar-deck and Ghostly Prison in my licia-deck, on which I both working in the moment. xD I don't think I need the enchantment tutor, cause I draw a lot of cards to find one of these. But I have them, so maybe I change my mind later. :D By the way, I took out Mentor of the Meek and Assault Formation , cause both never performed that well.
Thank you for the suggestions, I appreciate it a lot!

For card draw in white you can use generic deck thinners to instead improve the quality of draws. Secluded Steppe , Drifting Meadow for example. Gift of Estates or Land Tax , Strata Scythe , Sword of the Animist options. Seer's Sundial , Mentor of the Meek , Tamiyo's Journal , Sea Gate Wreckage , Loreseeker's Stone actually draw stuff.

Raikas Yeah Demon of Dark Schemes seems very powerful. I'll have to test it, and I'll definitely put it in the maybeboard. It is very slow but acts as a boardwipe on its own. Once its engine gets online it might pull off a win similar to the Reassembling Skeleton line.
I don't play Shadows of the Past for the same reason I don't play Ashes of the Abhorrent . Scrying is better than not, but I want to use my card slots for things with higher impact like engine pieces or very good utility. I should put the card in the maybeboard though, you're right about that.
h0ly_danc3r I've never had problems so far with lacking win-cons. If you think you need more, these buff cards would be fine includes, but currently I'd rather have more engine pieces.
Yahenni is good because he doubles as a threat, but I like cheaper sac outlets.
If you need more card draw, Mind's Eye is alright, but this deck can achieve so much more with its plentiful options. I would rather play cards like Stoneforge Mystic , Open the Armory , or Beseech the Queen to tutor for Skullclamp if I need more card draw. Otherwise Necrologia , Mentor of the Meek , and Corpse Augur are all great ways to draw massive amounts f cards for less mana than mind's eye.

Some cards to consider: Epic Struggle , Wolfcaller's Howl , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Sylvan Offering , Harvest Season , Whispersilk Cloak , Skullclamp , Bastion Protector , Sigil Captain , Path of Discovery , Druid of the Anima , Knotvine Mystic , Mage Slayer , Sunforger , Bravado , Spirit Mantle , Mentor of the Meek , Soul Warden , Beastmaster Ascension , and Resplendent Angel . Haha sorry for the long list, just cards that came to mind as being potentially useful!
