Would appreciate any suggestions on my Tallowisp Spirit Deck
1 month ago
Now that I look at it. I do seem to have a "pillow fort". In the form of Ghostly Prison and Dovin Baan. I assume I should lean to a more aggro side. So unless someone says other wise I will take them out. I think I will replace Cancel and Ghostly Prison with Spell Pierce. At least 2 of them but would more be preferred? Going aggro I would think that two would be fine.
Moorland Haunt is like the best thing ever. I'm so happy you told me about that card. Its like everything I need out of a land.
I really like the Phantasmal Image but how many would I put in. I would think around 2 because it shouldn't be the stable of the deck but you still want to have a good chance to get it by turn three or four. I calculated that if I have around 2 of them, getting them by turn 4 would be around 31%. But like I said, that shouldn't be a huge issue because it shouldn't be the "key"(for lack of a better term) of the deck.
So Dreamcatcher seemed really good at first (mostly for its mana cost) but I think that Mausoleum Wanderer , Rattlechains and Nebelgast Herald would be way better (specifically Mausoleum Wanderer) or would Rattlechains be better? Or all three?
Now Invocation of Saint Traft seems really good. At this point though idk where he would fit. I could see it also helping with creatures (if I add it) Eidolon of Countless Battles. I really like Invocation of Saint Traft but if it isn't reasonable then I won't add it.
Now my favorite card in this deck is Anointed Procession. But is it even reasonable to have all 4 of them in? Having Spectral Procession pop out 24 spirits is nice..really nice (that math is correct right? 32=62=12*2=24?) but having 4 isn't exactly budget and I usually (i don't think ever) dont have had all 4 out at once.
Now the last thing I want is some suggested sideboard budget cards that you think I might need just so I have something to work off of when I buy the deck.
Btw I just want to say thank you so much. When I first was getting into magic it seemed kinda intimidating. But building (at least semi competitive decks) is so much fun and I get to learn so much from doing it. I really enjoy the game and I want to thank you for helping me along the way, you have made my magic experience better and SUPER fun. I even got two of my friends into it so now I have more irl propel to play with and not just at fnm.

It all depends on the competitiveness you are going for. I am not the best helper when it comes to the competitive scene since i am more of a casual player, so i won't be able to help you make it really competitive if that's what you are going for with the build.
If you are a casual player, i would recommend running cards you enjoy and would love to use.
However i will come with my thoughts on the cards :) Depending on your budget i would run 2-3 copies of Geist of Saint Traft (Keep in mind the legend rule when playing). Selfless Spirit i think you are primarily running it for it's sacrifice ability than the body itself.
Eidolon of Countless Battles seems pretty fun as a one of could possibly be a big threat in the late game
For me Daxos of Meletis seems pretty solid to with just the first ability. Think of the combo between Daxos of Meletis and Invocation of Saint Traft or Eidolon of Countless Battles boosting him. Invocation of Saint Traft could be a possible suit for the deck to?

Hi! Just wondering what card you're referring to when you say nibbles? I'm assuming you're speaking about Nebelgast Herald but I wanted to be certain!? Also, what decks are prominent where you play? I have a bit of affinity and other odd decks that are ran where I'm at, some are just thrown together decks that function a bit odd.

I would try cutting back on some of the single use token producers and focus more on repeatable token production. Custodi Soulbinders and Twilight Drover are some great repeatable token producers I see in your maybeboard that I think should totally make the main deck. Baku Altar is kind of mediocre, but is another way to repeatably generate spirit tokens.
There are a lot of great spirit effects that trigger off of casting spirit spells, and I think a great way to synergize with this is self-bounce effects. Nikko-Onna is repeatable enchantment removal that also triggers on cast effects. Nebelgast Herald can tap down opposing creatures, either to protect you from attacks or to tap down potential blockers. Sire of the Storm lets you draw cards off of your spirits, and Bygone Bishop does the same for all your cheap creatures. Spectral Shepherd lets you repeatably bounce your own spirits, whether to save them from removal or just reuse their etb effects. Celestial Kirin is a great piece of repeatable removal triggering off of your spirit casts. Another great way to bounce your own spirits is Crystal Shard. It can also disrupt your opponents by forcing them to leave up a mana (2 if you attempt to bounce at eot and again on your turn) to prevent their creatures from being returned to hand.

A few good cards that could be considered are Nebelgast Herald but that's the only really cheap one. The other expensive ones are Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Geist of Saint Traft both are optional and very good but if you do decide to use one I would recommend only 1 or 2 in the deck each. another option in this deck that could be very good is if you splash green, but of course that makes the deck 3 times more expensive. The cards would be Collected Company (literally gets any creature in your deck even if they don't have flash, making cards such as Selfless Spirit good) Noble Hierarch and Gavony Township. All amazing cards but again very expensive. if you feel a little crazy you could also try Dragonlord Ojutai.

Yes, my meta is a little creature light right now, lot of my local players are playing control, combo (like cheating out Emrakul), 8Rack or Death's Shadow. I'm also in a small city, so my meta isn't healthy to begin with. My latest consideration for my meta is to swap out something for Dimir Cutpurse and some evasion like Aqueous Form or Artful Dodge...
That said, when I was vs Humans, Werewolves, Elves etc, there was MB removal. I'd probably revert to Rattlechains and Topplegeist then too. Maybe Midnight Haunting, Beckon Apparition...their synergy with Nebelgast Herald is pretty good, as is Essence Flux. I MB'ed Essence Flux for a long time, it's well worth testing.

Nebelgast Herald is great for instant speed tapping, Phantasmal Image for more Drogskol Captain action, possibly Spirit of the Labyrinth for anti-draw (unless you add card draw), and Eidolon of Rhetoric as sideboard hate against Storm.
