Nillstan: By the way, I'm thinking about removing Day of Judgment (to SB) and Tezzeret's Gambit and replacing them with planeswalkers, what do you think about this list?

Do you have any tips on the SB composition? Because right now it needs some rework.

Oath of Ajani doesn't give additional loyalty, it's just makes Planeswalkers cost 1 to cast. Now if you like making copies of Planeswalkers, you can try Gideon of the Trials + Helm of the Host make Gideon a Creature and attach Helm, make copies of Gideon and repeat each turn when you don't have anything better to do with Mana. Just need to Emblem one of your Gideons and eventually they won't be able to kill all the Gideons and you can't lose.

+3xAdventurous Impulse (3x$0.25), +2xLlanowar Elves (2x$0.25), +2xMemorial to Unity (2x$0.25), +3xLongtusk Cub (3x$0.25), +3xPride Sovereign(3x$0.99), +4xCompulsory Rest(4x$0.25), +1xRegal Caracal ($1.49), +1xForest, +2xProwling Serpopard(from sideboard)(+21) =$7.97 (US$ from cardkingdom. Maybe not the regal and a sovereign if buying locally)

-4 scrounging bandar, -4 pouncing cheetah, -4 call to unity, -2 durable handycraft, -4 abascade, divine verdict, oath of ajani, growing rites of itlamoc (-21)

So with Dominaria getting released in less than a week cards I'd consider are Adventurous Impulse, Llanowar Elves and maybe even a couple Memorial to Unity. Elves lets you play your spells a turn early and the others make it a lot harder to get screwed on mana while letting you dig for your tribal bombs.

I'm assuming you don't have more Longtusk Cubs because with Ixalan, when you say you last updated the deck, being when energy was the entire meta they might have been a little pricy. They are a penny a piece now so I'd suggest picking up a couple over Pouncing Cheetah or Scrounging Bandar.

The removal package is a little slow and I'd suggest Compulsory Rest, Gideon's Reproach or Cast Out to replace the Divine Verdict and suchlike.

Also I'd run more lands. At least 23.

Durable Handicraft, Call for Unity and Oath of Ajani arn't viable in standard atm. You're sacrificing tempo to force through damage late game. Most well tuned control or mid-range decks could easy stabilize before you start to do anything really aggressive, aggro will keep those cards dead in your hand and combo will have you dead on turn 4. Not to mention that anything leaning on removal only needs to one for one your creatures and render your random do nothing enchantments useless without even having to directly answer them. Your best strategy with this type of deck is to either bite hard and not let go or play cards like Vanquisher's Banner or Lifecrafter's Bestiary and draw so many cards your opponent runs out of removal.

Hi AR,

going ultra competitive, I presume you are aiming at a Sisay Combo approach, like I did.Then I would cut these cards:

  • Angel of Jubilation : too many intensive for what it does and can't be fetched by Sisay
  • Eight-and-a-Half-Tails : You are the agressor, so the protection is not needed. Most of the time you use the mana to play powerful spells anyway.
  • Oath of Nissa : Not powerful enough to warrent a spot
  • Oath of Ajani : likewise
  • Chromatic Lantern : too slow for Sisay. I feel that each piece of ramp that you find in your opening hand should help you get Sisay out a turn sooner. For a 2-color deck I think there are far better options in this color combination.


  • Aven Mindcensor : This will hurt people. You can even respond to a fetch land ;-)
  • Avacyn, Angel of Hope : This is a powerhouse where the mana intensive cmc is justified
  • Glissa Sunseeker : It is partially a meta call, but I love it to screw with peoples boardstate by blowing up vital artifacts. But I sometimes take te stax route and this helps me do it.
  • Mangara of Corondor : If there is a problem on the board, this baby will solve it for you and can be found by Sisay.

Overall, you have to be prepared to sink some serious money into a competitive build, because cards like Gaea's Cradle, Grim Monolith, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Mana Crypt and such really improve the pace and consistancy of the deck.

And then we didn't even discuss the landbase. Which is also an expensive part.

Still it's great to pilot her, even when you are not at full potential yet.

Best of luck and fun!

Hey PartyJ I'm always happy to get more ideas as I sell almost all my cards except for 1deck/format. Of course Sisay is my EDH deck :p. A few things I've been tweaking are getting some cheaper legendary cards to turn on paradox engine ie: Hope of Ghirapur, Oath of Ajani, oketra/bontu's monument, as well as Gideon of the Trials, and Containment Priest to round out some protection suites. The big issue with this deck is that I refuse to pay more than ~30$/card and based on the cards banned by my group; Gaea's Cradle, Mox Opal, and the like are not happening (also they cost too damn much lol). But please, advise away :)

I would replace Oath of Ajani, Elvish Mystic, and Avacyn's Pilgrim though if you really want mana ramp I would add in Rishkar, Peema Renegade

at least a single of Oath of Ajani is worth it

I put all the ajani's in there since the new rule change that allows you to have them out at the same time and it really helps take your reliance off of creatures (6PW and Oath of Ajani). Another way to go to avoid board wipes and creature removal.
