Oblation Discussion

pokemonmasterjal on Griffins at a Great Price

instead of the combat tricks you should put in card advantage

Arcane Encyclopedia, Book of Rass, Coveted Jewel, Inheritance, Orazca Relic, Loreseeker's Stone, Rogue's Gloves, Seer's Sundial holy shit there's no card draw in white. Also put in Shefet Dunes for the meme.

Consider taking out: Smite, Oblation, Dusk/Dawn and also maybe one of your anthems

Wow you're quick! Nice first draft. I'm wondering if the inclusion of Crested Sunmare is needed? Maybe include more interactions like Oblation/Flawless Maneuver/Unexpectedly Absent?

Gbeail on Well, that's odd

I don't recommend Scour from Existence even cheated out I don't think its worth it. Wasting an entire turns attack to remove one thing doesnt seem worth it and it cost a lot so summon from hand. Some that have a cheaper CMC are Oblation, Archon of Justice and Elspeth Conquers Death. They're weird but can do more for cheaper. Even the unicorn can be used as a blocker before removing the threat. Then there are board wipes for less CMC than Scour from Existence that keep your commander around with Cataclysmic Gearhulk and Urza's Ruinous Blast. Then a plain board wipe with End Hostilities

xSKINCOLLECTORx on Mortify or Mythos of Nethroi?

It also matters how good your mana base is, mythos is only REALLY good if you pay all three colors, otherwise it’s just ok. Whereas mortify will always do the same thing, but you have to have the two colors two even be able to cast it. Depending on what else is in the deck Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Beast Within, Generous Gift, Oblation and Assassin's Trophy are better options. But if you are adding to those I think I would pick mythos, I play a solid mana base in my 3 color decks and like it more than mortify

Always needs moar removal/utility. I got some weird stuff for ya.

Apostle's Blessing, Expose Evil, Fury Charm, Indomitable Creativity, Survive the Night, Oblation, Aurelia's Fury.

Romer on Kykar's Anthems

Hi xSKINCOLLECTORx, By Force is definitely a great scaling removal spell and I run it in a few of my decks. I just love the versatility of Heliod's Intervention to hit artifacts or enchantments. Or Generous Gift and Oblation's ability to hit any permanent.

The reason I didn't include Guttersnipe was that this deck only has 20 Instants and Sorceries but it has 60 Noncreature spells. Looking at the numbers, I chose to focus on Noncreature spells to keep the liklihood of Noncreature triggers higher, hence Firebrand Archer.

Rhystic Study is fantastic, no doubt, and someday I'm sure to add one to this deck. It's missing only because of the dollar amount of the card itself. There have been other pricey, more impactful cards for me to focus my budget on first, like a land base that doesn't enter tapped, The Immortal Sun, Cyclonic Rift and Anointed Procession. Someday Kykar will see a Rhystic Study and my opponents can spend another game hearing me ask, "Do you pay the extra ?" :D

I feel like the deck is solid, definite room for growth, but for the budget incredibly effective. There are some weaknesses, but the deck definitely can be a powerhouse.

Biggest room for improvement:

Resolve the small issues (See below)

Issues that I see:

-Few ways of protecting Kaalia

-Few ways of drawing cards

-Slightly not enough ramp, try adding 2 more

-Too high CMC on non-angel/demon/dragon cards

-Few ways of removing single targets

-Slightly too many board wipes

-Slightly too few lands, adding a few will allow you to have more keep-able hands

Cards to add: (These are some good budget substitutions for cards you have and will make the deck run smoothly, I listed the card kingdom prices in ()'s)

Talisman of Conviction (.6)

Talisman of Hierarchy (.8)

Talisman of Indulgence (2.3)

Fellwar Stone (3.5)

Coldsteel Heart (1.5)

Chaos Warp (1.5)

Oblation (.7)

Obliterate (1.8)

Exhume (1.5)

Harvester of Souls (1.3)

Bloodgift Demon (1)

Demonlord Belzenlok (.8)

Boros Charm (2.5)

Apostle's Blessing (.25)

Giver of Runes (3)

Battlefield Forge (2)

Caves of Koilos (1)

The total for cards to add should only be about $25

Cards to take out to make room:

Mardu Banner

Orzhov Locket

Star Compass

Angelic Chorus

Grave Betrayal

Elspeth Conquers Death

Nevinyrral's Disk

End Hostilities

Day of Judgment

Beacon of Unrest

Akroma, Angel of Wrath

Angel of the Dire Hour

Herald of War

Pristine Angel

Tariel, Reckoner of Souls

Yosei, the Morning Star

Angel of Condemnation

The next big move will be to improve the landbase. 35 is the right amount for the deck, in my opinion, however it definitely could use an upgrade. Having a consistent land base allows you to easier play Kaalia on turn 3 or 4. It also helps you to consistently have the colors of mana you need, when you need them. I would add/completed the cycles in this order. These are listed from cheapest to most expensive.
