Monastery Mentor Discussion
1 day ago
Playing Chalice is really crippling for a pox deck, since most of the cards that keep you alive early on are 1 mana (Push, Path, TS, IoK)... but if you really want to go that route, you need to have more high impact removal such as Damnation, Drown in Sorrow, etc, since you won't be able to maintain the board state early on as easily. Ideally you'd want to stall until you can nuke their board, then generate value with your planeswalkers and Lingering Souls and such before they can recover. This makes it so you can't play Monastery Mentor, but he isn't very useful without a bunch of 1 mana spells anyways so I wouldn't consider it that huge of a loss. You may also need to up the land count a bit to make sure you can get to the sweepers on curve, it'll let you achieve higher amounts of mana for Torment of Hailfire though so I'd say it works out.
I still think you need at least some targeted removal in the main, though. Cast Down is a good one, Anguished Unmaking is a neat catch-all. Also, having more than one copy of Crucible of Worlds is useless so you can go down at least 1 of them, if not more. I'd also argue the same thing for Torment of Hailfire, it's pretty useless early on so you want to minimize your chances of drawing it then.

Edit: Scratch Monastery Mentor just noticed it’s a budget deck. It’s a little high probably l.

I added a bunch of stuff to the maybeboard and added Monastery Mentor to the deck. I completely forgot the card existed for some reason, but I think its a good fit here.

Love it! Personally, I hate Riverwise Augur, I found way more success with Monastery Mentor. Yes, the fish brainstorm, but quite often I found even that underwhelming and that hard cast miracles and some additional counters, removal; or aggro were better. Same with Telling Time, players of Opt and Serum Visions were better and it was underwhelming. I'm a big fan of Cast Out since it allows you to miracle and deal with any non-land threat, and Precognition Field, but my build is a bit heavier on the instant and groceries, I also don't own Jace or Snaps.
Hope you're loving it though, it's a fun archetype

i think Seeker is just strictly better than Jeskai Student why choose to opt out?
is not including Monastery Mentor a budget call? $11 card can be tough but he is a game changer if unchecked especially with tokens getting prowess too.

More token producers would be good, especially on a stick. Cards like Monastery Mentor do double duty as a chump blocker and a token producer to help you get going in the early game. Jeskai Ascendancy could help you find your early threats as well as pump Narset or untap her after an attack.
