Oketra's Monument Discussion
1 day ago
yup... tested it at FNM - does not work this well. the only reason for trying this is the interaction between Oketra's Monument and 'put 3 -1/-1 counters on something' creatures. And Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. And exillent removal agains zombie infested meta :) I might combine the Oketra's Monument with the black version and try for a more token oriented deck. Mayby even 3 colours?

After playtesting for a couple of weeks, I've noticed the following:
The blue Embalmers are very situational. I haven't managed to get much out of any of them, but the potential is there. Land is an issue, as expected, but going up to 24 lands helped.
On MTGO I've swapped Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun for Open Into Wonder, and it's an improvement. Anointed Procession is the keystone, synergizing excellently with Liliana's Mastery and Noosegraf Mob. Lord of the Accursed is already popular in standard zombie decks, and I can see why. Wayward Servant is also excellent. Oketra's Monument also does a fine job, particularly with Anointer Priest on the board.

First of all thanks for your feedback, your comment is much appreciated!
You gave my allot of interesting thought to consider about, especially Volcanic Offering and Ghostly Prison are great cards i might add. And after checking your deck, Protector of the Crown and Purity might also be interesting additions to consider as well, but I'm unsure how well my mana curve would flow adding 2 more 6 mana creatures to it.
Actually I don't think Malignus ever had trouble getting through an opponents defense for me thus far. With the amount of wipes, trample and battlefield control I run he always has been able to bring allot of bang for his buck.
I agree the Isochron Scepter has better use with blue and I won't miss it whenever i play a game without it, however I consider this card a mini-game to this deck where whenever i find it, it's a fun extra feature to my game. Deflecting Palm, Ride Down and Temur Battle Rage have been solid win conditions to this deck since the beginning and also Swords to Plowshares or Condemn are great imprints for the scepter. That Disenchant made it to this deck might be the poorer choice over Return to Dust or even Revoke Existence. But it's an extra imprint option and it helps my curve better. I have yet to decide if I should keep it however.
Browbeat is a bit tricky yes, also since it's this deck's only card advantage. But I've tried Emeria Shepherd and it's just too expensive. I always end up with better options to play. Urza's Incubator is in the same spot however. While this card greatly benefits me to get Gisela on the field asap, it can even work against me in the long run as angels are a popular theme to play and over the development of this deck fewer and fewer angels stay. But i also haven't updated this deck since the Amonkhet so far. Oketra's Monument might replace the incubator and Bloodlust Inciter, Onward / Victory or Pyramid of the Pantheon seem kinda interesting.
Lastly I used to run Inferno Titan in this deck, but when i saw the Assembled Alphas i fell in love with that card and decided to retire the titan for the alphas. I can't say I've had any regrets thus far.

A couple folks have mentioned mana being low, and that's probably true. Since the curve has lots of 2-3 drops, it's probably sfve to drop Oketra's Monument and a couple basics in favor of 4 Evolving Wilds. Standard doesn't have a great supply of nonbasic lands for fixing, but Evolving Wilds at least clears the deck somewhat.

However, I'd like to keep Ghirapur Orrery. Whenever I've gotten it out in playtesting, I've been able to empty my hand every turn, which gives crazy card advantage.
What should I replace the former two artifacts with?

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is actually really bad in this deck, it looks good when you look at it but when actually using its not good. Oketra's Monument is not good in this deck. Ghirapur Orrery is too slow, would you rather play Hazoret on turn 4 and get the aggro on or play a slow artifact? i would take both of them out and put in 2 more mountains because 18 is definetly not enough

Wat dacht je van: Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Heroes' Podium, Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, Time of Need, Kitsune Healer, Day of Destiny of Harmonize? Ze zorgen ervoor dat je gewoon kaarten kan pakken en je legendary's sterker worden.

I would move up to 3 Anointed Procession as they just double the value of any token spell or ability you use. Not sold on the cartouches in a token deck or Oketra's Monument as you aren't casting many white creatures. You may want to get some Oketra the True as you are running a good shell for it.
Put in some removal such as Declaration in Stone as it hits most things that are popular currently.
