Midnight Guard Discussion

Presence of Gond + Midnight Guard might be the most successful and common.

Firewalled is a defender deck that I like.

windmill is a mill combo

Brylon on Shalai EDH

2 weeks ago

shalai edh update number 2:

out :: 21

creature:

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Flickerwisp

Glimmerpoint Stag

Azusa, Lost but Seeking is very expensive. I am very aware she is awesome, so I've added her to a maybeboard if I decide I want to further upgrade this deck. Flickerwisp and Glimmerpoint Stag are removed because I am largely removing flicker effects because the strat is not powerful enough in this deck.

planeswalker:

Karn, Scion of Urza

Elspeth Tirel

Elspeth, Knight-Errant

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Ajani Unyielding

Originally I wanted to take advantage of Shalai, Voice of Plenty's hexproof for planeswalkers, but I didn't make great picks on planeswalkers, and ultimately Karn, Scion of Urza, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion were really the only ones worth it. I can't reasonably afford Karn for this deck, so he has been moved to the maybeboard.

instant:

Liberate

Flicker effects have largely been removed.

sorcery:

Flicker

Fumigate

Sudden Disappearance

Flicker effects have largely been removed. In this case being sorcery speed makes them less valuable, because they cannot be used for avoidance. Fumigate is removed in order to make way for better mass removal.

enchantment:

Privileged Position

It's just too expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty does the same thing, and I can just cast her from the command zone.

artifact:

Coalition Relic

Darksteel Ingot

These are less valuable in a deck that is only 2 colors.

land:

Veldt

Vec Townships

Tranquil Garden

Riftstone Portal

Windbrisk Heights

Secluded Steppe

The first 4 of these are just bad, and the last 2 are being removed to make way for more plains.

in :: 21

creature:

Serra Ascendant

Birds of Paradise

Midnight Guard

Birds is great mana ramp. Serra Ascendant exists to be a win con. Midnight Guard is in as one piece of an unlimited token combo.

instant:

Condemn

Powerful spot removal that puts the card where the player can't get it.

sorcery:

Krosan Grip

Rout

Oust

Krosan Grip is in as artifact/enchantment hate. Rout replaces Fumigate. Oust is spot removal that avoids the graveyard.

enchantment:

Flickerform

Shield of the Oversoul

Presence of Gond

Flickerform is in for avoidance on key creatures. Presence of Gond is the second part of the infinite token combo, and Shield of the Oversoul is in because it looks fun.

artifact:

Relic of Progenitus

Urza's Incubator

Elixir of Immortality

Mind's Eye

Relic of Progenitus is in as graveyard hate. Urza's Incubator is in for cost reduction. Elixir of Immortality is in for mill protection, and Mind's Eye is in for draw.

land:

Path of Ancestry

Reliquary Tower

Homeward Path

Emeria, The Sky Ruin

3 Plains

Path of Ancestry is good for tribal. Reliquary Tower gives me no max hand size. Homeward Path protects me from effects that take my creatures. Emeria, The Sky Ruin lets me cheat back in dead creatures, and the Plains are added to support Emeria.

Cards for later

expensive, but maybe at some point:

Teferi's Protection

Karn, Scion of Urza

Vedalken Orrery

Sublime Archangel

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Qasali Pridemage

maybeboard:

Debt of Loyalty

Reconnaissance

Have you considered the combo Midnight Guard with Presence of Gond? With mana dorks, can hit by turn 3. Nets infinite elf tokens (good for Marwyn). Or with Cathars' Crusade for infinitely big creatures.

Hynx on all the tokens (happy to hear suggestion)

casual multiplayer deck here. usually games of 4-5 players. hit me up with some of those suggestions if you have any.

token factories are: Midnight Guard (or) Sunstrike Legionnaire + Presence of Gond,

Geist-Honored Monk + Nim Deathmantle+Ashnod's Altar,

Patrol Signaler + Utopia Vow + Heartstone

damage prevention is: Heart of Light + Palace Guard (or) Guardian of the Gateless,

Kami of False Hope + Nim Deathmantle (or) Evolution Charm

land tutoring obviously Evolution Charm if needed

Consider Presence of Gond and Midnight Guard for infinite elves.

Also, Hour of Reckoning needs to be in your deck

Storm Herd could be crazy if you go with a life-gain subtheme

Midnight Guard and Presence of Gond best combo to generate elves.

Interesting, any thoughts on Summoner's Pact to get Midnight Guard into your hand?
