ZorrosRage on Tallowisp Spirits Magic Aids

2 weeks ago

Kechl thank you for enjoying the deck. Cool little story.

The deck can definitely be adjusted and tested. I'll start with your suggestions.

Gift of Immortality is definitely a great card it the hard part is the 3 cost. It makes it hard to bring more than one in and there is a lot of times you just don't want it yet Tallowisp helps you get it When you do. After testing with all of the hexproof and counters with creatures I just felt it was amazing in the side but not in the main. It slowed down the main idea and usually wanted it game 2 after I had more knowledge of what I was facing.

The main win in the deck is the Geist of Saint Traft being buffed. It's super powerful with Steel of the Godhead

Selfless Spirit is a great card. Especially with GoI like you stated. This is just a decision on what you face and what you think your week against. Only 2 because I feel like I can try to stop most board wipes with the cards in the deck and the two for extra insurance. 2 I feel is a good spot for selfless with all of the control I have. A lot of my cards also cost 3 so I'm not going to have a lot to keep alive unless I counter.

I actually feel like if I have GoI thenKami of False Hope is better for me in more areas which is why I have 3. The main issues I've had is when someone is going to swarm the board and kami just locks their combat. A selfless helps me block but a lot of damage well still happen and I'll be hit for it. Being swarmed and big swings can be this decks weakness, but kami and GoI can help with that. The life link if steel of God Hand does also.

As for Eidolon of Rhetoric. No doubt is a great sideboard card. You just have to know what your going to face. I just chose to try to fight combo with the counters, but if your going to face it a lot it is definitely needed in the side. I don't really see storm very much so not in there current. Mainly what I see is death shadow, affinity, control, and mid-range stuff. I feel like my side is good for that.

As for Rootrunner it's just not a fit for the deck. Cost too much green and your already tight on Mana. There is really only 1 green for Rancor because Rancor is just that good. Buffs any flyers you want and makes them better without ever being wasted if you lose it.

Thanks for the suggestions none were bad. If you want to pick it up please let me know how it goes I do not get to test it enough but when I do it played great. You can adjust the side for what you need but I think the current one is solid. All the cards in the maybe area could easily go in vs certain decks if you know what your facing. Even if you face a lot of combo with Devoted Druid Oppressive Rays has helped me stop it. It can be a bit slow though. There is a lot of things you can adjust but this is how so far it tested best for me.

klaymore_ on is krond the lion or the rider?

4 weeks ago

Glad to see another Krond user! He is definitely one of my favorite decks. Here are a few suggestions for you:

I highly recommend Somberwald Sage. With Krond having such a high CMC, and solid colors at that, she pays for half by herself. Sun Titan is also a good inclusion as most enchantments are pretty cheap.

Privileged Position+Sterling Grove and/or Fountain Watch = you can't touch this. Daybreak Coronet if you have the budget for it. Instill Energy to use Krond the same turn he comes out.

Prison Term is a better Oppressive Rays.

Also you have 2 Plea for Guidance in your deck.

Here is my take on a Krond deck if you want to take a look for more ideas:

ZorrosRage on Hot Traft on Traft Action

Imprisoned in the MoonDoesn't work with Tallowisp

Oppressive Rays is great for slowing down and stops the new creature combos

Invocation of Saint Traft I don't think is really needed

Mistveil Plains can recycle your enchantments

Path to Exile always a good removal

I like it. +1. There's a lot of lifegain here, so maybe exploiting that more could make the deck more formidable. I'd say Thalia's Lieutenant is the creature that sticks out to me - it doesn't offer an abilities to Odric. I think I would leave Mentor of the Meek out in favor of Tezzeret's Gambit+Thalia's Lieutenant. Just MHO. Some stuff to consider:

Lands: Mortuary Mire, Bojuka Bog, Windbrisk Heights, Sejiri Steppe, Kabira Crossroads, Buried Ruin.

Artifacts: Chalice of Life  Flip, Elixir of Immortality(SB), Pithing Needle(SB)

Sorcery: Immortal Servitude, Tezzeret's Gambit

Instant: Geth's Verdict, Celestial Flare, Condemn

Enchantment: Sanguine Bond, Oppressive Rays, Oblivion Ring

Creatures: Kazandu Blademaster, Hovermyr, Adanto Vanguard, Gifted Aetherborn

Yeti_Confetti on Ten Card Format

I was sort of thinking it might have been too much.

I made a W/U exalted deck for this.

2 islands and 2 plains.

1 of Akrasan Squire, Aven Squire, Ethercaste Knight, Triton Shorestalker, Oppressive Rays, and Distortion Strike.

What do you think of it?

Funkydiscogod on You can not Attack!

I'd vote Oppressive Rays instead of Pacifism.

Dorotheus on All you need are allies

2 months ago

In my deck Degenerate Allies, I'm running Hardened Scales. You really, really don't want Oust or Condemn generally, the opponent gaining life is not what you want to happen ever I'd rather run Oppressive Rays or Blessed Alliance for budget purposes, even consider Lightning Bolt.

Allies definitely has some issues even after upgrades, but with Humans jumping into the limelight the way it is, I believe Allies to be a contender that is unrealized to many.

Your CMC seems too high. Authority of the Consuls would probably be good. Oppressive Rays is also nice. Solemnity might be good in the sideboard - that can really mess with a lot of decks. If you run Phyrexian Unlife, too, you'll have a good safety net in the combo.
