Orzhov Guildgate Discussion

RBunny on Black and White curve: Is ...

2 weeks ago

I have a Black and White (mostly black) Deck based around Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but as you can see he is pretty expensive manawise. I was wondering if there was a card like Sunpetal Grove, with the same effects, except "Forest" becomes "Swamp" and G becomes B. I know there is Orzhov Guildgate, but it always enters the battlefield tapped, and that slows my game down. Looking forward to suggestions :)

For lands that come in tapped Temple of Silenceis basically a Orzhov Guildgate that scrys for 1. Caves of Koilos is another nice dual. It pings you for 1 if you tap for B/W but comes down untapped.

You could drop in a Lantern Scout or two. Since it triggers when it hits the battlefield it doesn't matter if it dies, and it plays nice with Drana.

Finally if you want to go deep into the archives there's always Beacon of Immortality. Who doesn't like doubling their life and sticking the card back in the deck?

I am assuming this is multiplayer commander.

I would drop the ETB tapped and Evolving Wilds in favor of basics. You are only running two colors so it will not be a problem. Also go down to 37 lands with your curve and ramp. Also make sure you end up with a better distribution of lands.

I would drop Starfield of Nyx (high risk) and Phyrexian Reclamation (only 13 creatures, and I want you to drop creatures) and some of your creatures; keep Aegis of the Gods, Doomwake Giant, Mesa Enchantress, Nighthowler, Sun Titan, Treasury Thrull, and maybe Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts.

I would add Bloodchief Ascension, Angelic Renewal, Demonic Tutor, Erebos, God of the Dead, Fetid Heath, Monk Idealist, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Rest in Peace, Palace Siege and No Mercy.

Stony Silence is really good, but would hurt you too much with your current configuration.

Rest in Peace is really good, but it has bad synergi with your recursion... I'd probably run it anyway.


Suggested swaps

I would trade out Orzhov Guildgate for Scoured Barrens and/or Orzhov Basilica

Sure thing! Please bear in mind these are only suggestions. You can completely blow me off and it won't hurt my feelings at all.

Artifacts: Basilisk Collar: You don't have anything that pings (Tap, deal 1 damage), so I'm a little surprised to see it here. I think it could be cut and not missed. Chromatic Lantern and Darksteel Ingot could both get cut. An easy swap is Orzhov Signet, Orzhov Cluestone, or Commander's Sphere. Crucible of Worlds surprises me as the only lands you seem to have in the 'Yard are Evolving Wilds and Dark Depths. Sol Ring and Sensei's Divining Top could both go. I'm not a fan of either, but I understand their appeal.

Creatures: For a semi-creature oriented deck, you're not running as many as I'd like. Blazing Archon I really like this card, but not in this deck. Something like Silent Arbiter would suit you better. Cemetery Reaper You're running a full two zombies. This is one of them. Smothering Abomination The only thing I like about this guy is his last ability. The forced sacrifice is kind of a bad thing. But, his ability is abusable. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a good control card, but unless there's a lot of searching, I wouldn't run him. Things to maybe add fiendhunter has a loop with a sac outlet and Karmic Guide; Reveillark is good; the new Kor Ayli looks like a very useful card here; Mentor of the Meek is nice; Guul Draz Overseer can be interesting late game; Pontiff of Blight can finish a game. Fast. Vampire Hexmage is an absolute must if you run Dark Depths (it can also hit walkers, so yeah...)

Instants // Sorceries: Erase/Ray of Dissolution are OK, but Disenchant is still better in my mind. Moan of the Unhallowed doesn't seem great. Everything else looks pretty good. Things to add: Isochron Scepter will make people hate you. Cloudshift is fun with Karmic Guide/Sun Titan/Grave Titan. Orzhov Charm can come in handy. Barter in Blood can shut down some combo players (like Narset). Malicious Affliction/Tragic Slip are wonderful kill spells. Tempt with Immortality/Infernal Offering can be fun. Have you considered adding Secure the Wastes?

Enchantments: Endless Ranks of the Dead (See Cemetery Reaper). Font of Vigor I don't understand this card here... Honor of the Pure is OK. I think Dictate of Heliod would work better for you. Things to maybe add: Oblivion Ring/Grasp of Fate It's just good.

Planeswalkers: Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Solemn Visitor both make tokens. Ob Nixilis Reignited draws cards (and can shut down Azami/Nekusar decks. GOOD TIMES!!)

Lands: Please cut some of those plains for Orzhov Basilica, Orzhov Guildgate, Scoured Barrens, Tainted Field, Caves of Koilos, etc. etc.

I know this is a lot. Seriously, don't feel bad about blowing me off or telling me where you think I'm wrong. I'd like to state that I don't know your meta. In mine, Akroma's Memorial(or even Eldrazi Monument) is much better than Avacyn, Angel of Hope. I'm assuming your meta likes wraths a lot.
