Ormendahl, Profane Prince Discussion

cdkime on How much life do I ...

4 months ago

She did the math incorrectly--doubling effects stack with one another. Here's the breakdown:

Exalted Angel by itself:

Total: 32 Life

Noble Purpose by way of Exalted Angel:

Total: 32 Life

Ormendahl, Profane Prince by itself:

Total: 72 Life

Noble Purpose by way of Ormendahl, Profane Prince:

Total: 72 Life

Grand Total: 32 + 32 + 72 + 72 = 208 Life

Akromathia on How much life do I ...

4 months ago

So, while playing the other day my friend Ayesha had this on the table:

  1. Alhammarret's Archive
  2. Noble Purpose
  3. 2x Rhox Faithmender

Then she attacked with:

So, according to her the life gain goes like this:

Partial Total of +13 life.


  1. Alhammarret's Archive (13x2) = 26
  2. Noble Purpose(13x2) = 26
  3. 2x Rhox Faithmender (13x4) = 52

For a grant total of:

+104 life!!!

Is this correct?

One huge issue with the story that I have been having since BFZ was a lot of unmentioned Legendary Creatures in the story. Like Omnath, Locus of Rage and Linvala, the Preserver and Ormendahl, Profane Prince and Ishkanah, Grafwidow. In the Dominaria story they are incorporating so many legendary characters! I think they might all appear. Baird, Steward of Argive showed up and I really appreciate that. Also, the writing quality is so much higher with Martha Wells handling all of the story.

Just FYI, Ormendahl, Profane Prince is a black permanent, so he's not legal in your deck :(

Argy on Cast a Shadow [Frontier]

filthyc4sual that's not correct at all.

Control has late game win cons with Ormendahl, Profane Prince, and the ultimate abilities of Ob Nixilis Reignited, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

I have even won games by exhausting all the Control cards from a deck, then repeatedly attacking with Shambling Vent.

The many cards that remove things from hand prove tricky for other Control decks to play against.

If Gideon, Ally of Zendikar comes in from the Sideboard, things are even worse for the Opponent in the mid game.

Blighted Fen is problematic for Emrakul, the Promised End.

As far as the mana base, every single land comes in untapped in the early game, except for Shambling Vent.

This deck can take some pain due to the life gain options it has.

The biggest problem for it so far has actually been Siege Rhino, which is why Lost Legacy has been added to the Sideboard.

DrkNinja on Edgar Markov

6 months ago

Hey I play an Edgar deck too so I figured I'd drop some suggestions.

First I'd like to suggest some cuts.

  • Elenda isn't worth the mana, she should be a lower CMC vamp that has more impact like Bloodghast. I only say that because there are A LOT of spells that let you exile creatures in EDH and it makes her worthless, plus 4 mana for a 1/1 feels really bad. In this deck you want to swing as often as possible as wide as possible.

  • Bishop of the bloodstained is ok, but I just think its over shadowed too harshly by Malakir Bloodwitch, same CMC drastically different impacts. Again would rather see a lower CMC vamp here or just an Exsanguinate/Debt to the Deathless.

  • Elspeth is usually a great card, but honestly its just too slow here. I know the goal is to ult her but... I don't think she fits in this deck because you want to end as soon as you can with a swarm of vamps.

  • Coat of Arms, this is very situational because if your play group doesn't play a lot of tribal this card is awesome; however this card just gives your opponents too much potential.

  • Door to Destinies, great card and in most decks it's great; however the tokens don't trigger Door and I'd just rather play something else on turn 4.

Onto the Suggestions to add to the deck!

  • Cover of Darkness: this card is amazing and more often than not means players are about to die.
  • Phyrexian Reclamation: it's a perfect card because you get basically get 2 creatures. You get one back from the grave and you cast it to get another token!
  • Shadow Alley Denizen: don't let the fact that it's a common one drop fool you, this girl is an allstar! Cast one vamp and get 2 creatures with intimidate?! Yes, please.
  • Toxic Deluge: I think this is the best boardwipe in black. You have to pay life to use it, but you are constantly gaining life in this deck so take it. Plus it gets around indestructible so +1.
  • Vault of the Archangel: This land can turn an unfavorable block into the best attack in the game.
  • Westvale Abbey  Flip: You accumulate creatures so quick in this deck, and getting a Ormendahl, Profane Prince on the table in 4 turns is totally possible and pretty much means game over.

Cereal_Killer on Story Deck - Westvale's Profane Piety

11 months ago

As you have chosen a female high priest character replacing Sangromancer is a great idea, but I'd prefer Teysa, Orzhov Scion to Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts due to less mana cost and a more helpful ability (You won't have probelms having tokens, especially now that you have considered Secure the Wastes).

I'd reduce Gather the Townsfolk and Spectral Procession up to 2x each and add 2x Raise the Alarm. It's a good card, that puts two token, as Gather the Townsfolk, but at instant speed, so whenever you want. You can even cut 2x Doomed Traveler if you really want the other two sorceries

I really suggest you to consider turning Duress into Thoughtseize. It makes you lose 2 life, but you can discard whatever you want (not lands obviously).

What about Brimaz, King of Oreskos? He fits very good in the deck and in the flavor, as he puts token when attacking or defending and he represents the sovereign of the city where this dark story happens and ignores Teysa, Orzhov Scion's plan to unbound Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip and turn the bright city into the reign of darkness.

LostAlgorithm on Order of Stolen Will

11 months ago

Ok, I think I've made the changes I want to for now!

Not sure if I've gone too far in the other direction, but I think it's more focused now on token generation and exploiting that to either summon Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip, steal the opponent's creatures with Beguiler of Wills, or hit them straight in the face after a Rootborn Defenses & Wrath of God combo.

I apologize that the description didn't match before. I was actively fiddling with it when you both looked at it. As far as how competitive I want the deck to be, I'd like it to at least stand a chance but I don't need top-tier or anything. More than anything, I want a fun deck that tells a story, doesn't instantly fall apart, and can sometimes surprise my opponent.

I like the shift to being more Esper and all of the Spirit token generation that comes from it. The deck loses a bit of it's militant Kingdom feel, but now I see it more as telling the story of an organization within that kingdom. An organization that the regular citizenry would probably try to stop if they knew what it was up to.

I toyed with Bitterblossom, but I'm not sure I like adding faerie's into the mix. It is strong, but it muddles the theme a bit for me.

I understand that Beguiler of Wills isn't the strongest card and dilutes some of this deck's more direct potential. I get where you're coming from in suggesting her removal. I just really enjoy the potential to surprise my opponent with her and the flavor she adds to the deck.

I did look at adding in some Planeswalkers, but I haven't found one I really like for the theme yet. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, while strong, is a bit too bright, shiny, and good to be found hanging out with my Order.

As far as lands, with the shift in cards and colors they are vastly different now. I appreciate the advice on using the fetch lands, and I've taken out the ones that were very gimmicky. Mystic Gate is down to two and included specifically so I can use Beguiler of Wills occasionally.

I've also tried to make a more balanced mana curve. Spectral Procession kinda makes it look weird in the preview thing though. I intend to almost always cast it for only 3 white mana.

The deck has changed so significantly that unfortunately much of the other advice is less relevant now. I do want to say that I appreciate it regardless though! You've both helped give me a lot of new perspective on many of these cards. I dunno if my new deck is any better than my last (The competitive/casual bar seems to think not...) but I'm looking forward to hearing what ya'll have to say about it's new form!
