Monastery Mentor Discussion

TheVectornaut on mono white

This actually has some pretty cool ideas for a first deck.

I think you might benefit from focusing more on the noncreature spell plan than on the lifegain plan. You can certainly still have both, but having a card like Soulmender just to trigger your two copies of Sunbond seems very committal when you aren't getting other synergy out of it. If you are more interested in the lifegain plan, just let me know and I can certainly provide other suggestions.

With that in mind, some of the creatures could be swapped out for others with heroic or similar abilities. Sungrace Pegasus and Lightwalker could be replaced by Akroan Skyguard or Wingsteed Rider. Graceblade Artisan could be Tethmos High Priest or Fabled Hero. Soulmender could be Myth Realized or Favored Hoplite. Student of Ojutai could be Dawnbringer Charioteers. Nyx-Fleece Ram could be Hero of Iroas, Vanguard of Brimaz, or Monastery Mentor.

If you want to stick with the enchantment theme, you might replace the non-enchantment spells with something like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ethereal Armor , or Daybreak Coronet. Otherwise, heroic works well with spells that have multiple targets. Some examples are Ajani's Presence, Launch the Fleet, Phalanx Formation, Blessed Alliance, Dauntless Onslaught, Shoulder to Shoulder, Tandem Tactics, Redeem, and Cauldron Haze.

Well, there's some ideas to mull over at least. Good luck with your deck man. (Oh, and by the way, card linking is done using double brackets, not double parentheses.)

This deck I think could benefit from Retract. One mana to keep your storm count climbing makes sense to me.

Ohthenoises has a deck similar to this on his profile. He runs Monastery Mentor as a singleton back up win condition and it does major work.

Neither of those cards are really budget though.

Oh, I'll gladly look at that deck as Yasova and Surrak are both sitting on my desk as possible builds to look at next. I have a stack of cards that I'm interested in building from the beastmaster Yasova Dragonclaw to the Cult of Archangel Avacyn  Flip to Xenagos, God of Revels reveling with satyrs, centaurs, and enchantment dryads. I'm always building decks, and always looking for ideas. Even better, since I'm still not satisfied with any of the pirate captains, I may in fact be looking at a Grixis Rogue and going with a high seas adventure build over a pirate build for my 7 Seas deck.

It is extremely difficult to build a collection as an adult. Luckily for me, I haven't gotten rid of too many cards through the years and have stayed close enough to the game (even when I wasn't actively playing) to keep may hands on the good stuff.

I'm hoping I understood your question regarding the creature value and all told I'd say the collected value of the creatures is pretty budget-minded. The majority of the creatures are in the $0.50 - $5 range, minus Sakashima the Impostor at $12, the Monastery Mentor at $12, and of course the 3 planeswalkers (which I always include in my creature costs).

I think that you should maybe replace Ajani with Arlinn Kord  Flip, as a sweet card for more Grindy match-ups so that you have a late-game, instead of just losing steam and losing because your opponent stabilized. Also, Burning-Tree Emissary coupled with Reckless Bushwhacker can lead to very a explosive turn two or three. Atarka's Command is also an insane card, bolting your opponent and pumping your team for just two mana!

Also Sarkhan_the_Broken I'm not sure if you mean Monastery Swiftspear or Monastery Mentor, however, I don't think that there are enough non-creature spells to make either worth it over Kird Ape.

Also +1, I personally love naya, it is a really cool color combo.

I'd look into Monastery Mentor

Cool deck idea, I like a lot of this, but I have a couple suggestions.

Frontier is going to be a fast format full of Siege Rhino and Monastery Mentor and other fast powerful creatures, so I suggest mainboarding Fatal Push to deal with those threats. It's particularly good with all your sacrifice outlets.

I know it's in your maybeboard right now, but I would absolutely main Shrapnel Blast. It was pretty powerful in standard, and you'll have the servos to fuel it.

Also, if you're running artifacts, definitely run Hangarback Walker this guy is a huge threat and was in so many standard decks.

A card that was a little less popular, but I think was an excellent sideboard card: Phyrexian Revoker. It shuts down so many decks and cards like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip.

323Dimitri Thanks for the comment.I used to run Gods Willing too but as someone pointed out the double heroic trigger on Emerge Unscathed is better than the Scry 1.I actually have a playset of Monastery Mentor s which I am actually using in the deck but it stops being budget.They are very very powerful indeed .Any ideas on if I should swap Raise the Alarm for Spectral Procession ?
