Midnight Reaper Discussion

The thing about Goblin Instigator I don't like is that it's not a multicolor spell, and I want as many as possible to get the most out of Hero of Precinct One . Could it be too restrictive on the deck as a whole? Possibly. But it's definitely a powerful card, and it's tokens can be made 2/1 vigilant lifelinkers with a Judith and Teysa on the field. If I end up not going with Hero, then I'll be checking out Goblin Instigator for sure, and probably adding Midnight Reaper too (because this deck really sorely lacks card draw).

As for Deafening Clarion ... In playtest, it frequently feels like we are out-aggroed by red decks and Boros Weenies deck, so I definitely want it somewhere in my 75. Also, not that these are by any means strong selling points, but you can also get Pontiff to survive it if you use its ability first, and also there is the option to use just the lifelink mode if necessary.

I you're right to be skeptical about it though. I think it probably belongs in the (yet to be constructed) sideboard more than anything.

Other people have said a lot, so I'll focus on lands: I'd consider Path of Ancestry . At my count, you're running 11 creatures that trigger it, Also, Command Beacon is a way you can get around how heavily your deck relies on the commander and the risk he gets removed. The same goes for Homeward Path . Also, I noticed you're running Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep and Rogue's Passage . Shizo, Death's Storehouse goes very nicely, here. The other land I would seriously consider, especially since it just tanked in price after the reprint is Phyrexian Tower .

The other big thing I noticed here is that you have a LOT going on, which is sweet, but you might want some redundancy. For example, in addition to Grim Haruspex and Harvester of Souls , add Midnight Reaper .

I'd recommend some camp cards, like Sakura-Tribe Elder, Primal Druid, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, or at least some mana elves (like Llanowar Elves). Because what is better then play big spells? Yes, play big spells early.

You're gonna play creatures anyway, so some card draw creatures like Beast Whisperer, Grim Haruspex or Midnight Reaper help you to fill your hands after you've played some cards. If you need life, I personally like Dross Harvester - cause if many creatures are attacking then for sure many of them are going to die..

So I like your ideas and the commander is great (maybe one of the best in the set), maybe it could help to look at the average casting costs. Actually they are at 4.29, so there is plenty of room left to go down, cause normally you want to play as many things every turn. So don't waste your first turns. Normally everybody ramps as much as possible to get in a good position, when the big spells and creatures are coming.

redstonebanana, I feel like I usually don't have 2 or more creatures I want to be sacrificing, and Midnight Reaper and Priest of Forgotten Gods usually get the job done when it comes to card draw.

Hexaflexagon, while those are pretty solid cards, they don't really fit n my curve and I feel that Midnight Reaper does pretty well what one would want from Blood Divination or Thallid Soothsayer.

I like the idea of this deck. It feels like a Boros Angels or Jeskai Midrange deck from GRN, but with a few different tricks.

How would you adapt this to fit the Bo1 format on Magic Arena? Deafening Clarion seems like the best sweeper against aggro decks but it conflicts with Seraph of the Scales and some of the cheaper creatures. Maybe it doesn't matter because of the afterlife effects?

Do you think this deck can benefit from some sort of value generating card? Theater of Horrors seems like an option, although I'm not sure how it will perform in practice (too slow?). I like the inclusion of Midnight Reaper. With all of the removal being printed, it seems like its highly possible that the big angel threats get answered and then you are reduced to hoping for good top decks.
