DrukenReaps on Balancing Fun & Competitiveness

I'm a Johnny, Combo Player but I've run into the same issue because I had one play group where I didn't really care if they whined about my combos. I moved onto a play group where I like everyone and now it isn't as fun if I pull out a silly combo early in the game. I much prefer for the games to go long so I can actually have fun with my friends. It has been interesting finding combos that take longer while still being decent enough to win once in awhile.

Profet93 I found pillow fort decks can be powerful while not giving your opponents much to whine about. You can play stupid stuff like Palisade Giant + Darksteel Plate and then go about your business of setting things up. No one really seems to complain even though it is effectively the same as a proactive control strategy. Why counter things when they cant hurt you anyways? A more competitive version of the same idea is aikido where you use funny things like Comeuppance.

anyway, a mix of effects like Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality and Ghostly Possession on things like Palisade Giant. Pariah also works like a charm. Don't underestimate Gift of Immortality on Children of Korlis either.

My Queen Marchesa deck Divine Decree is all about being annoying for as long as possible and wins on occasion. Palisade Giant + indestructible effect or something else to keep it ticking is one of my stronger synergies. Ajani Steadfast emblem if you can get it out is ridiculous and worth the attempt. Pariah and Pariah's Shield are decent, I dropped pariah since it wasnt as strong for me but should be prefect for you. Worship is often underestimated, you could grab Lifeline for laughs too. Platinum Emperion protects from life loss and other than "I can't lose" cards is the only card that does. Mageta the Lion is probably the card that gets the most groans from my deck, actually probably the card that gets the most groans in my decade or so of playing.

Give Palisade Giant an Indestructibility... that is all I can come up with. However the combo will work almost always, even if you don't have Gideon, so it really shouldn't count

I'll take out those two lands for Glacial Chasm and a Basic Land until I get another. When I can dump more cash I'll get better dual lands and fetches.

I kind of like Palisade Giant to combo with Avacyn, Angel of Hope. I pretty much cant die unless one of them get exiled or returned to my hand.

Wall of Limbs I didn't really put it in there for its ability. I would only really use the ability if it had about 10 counters otherwise its just to defend myself. But I guess all the life gain from Debt to the Deathless would be just as good.

I would take out Transguild Promenade and Rupture Spire out as soon as possible, they slow you down significantly, so consider taking one of those out for the Glacial Chasm.

As for the Venser's Journal, Palisade Giant seems like a good swap since they do similar things (keep your life total high), while also bringing down the overall CMC of your deck.

Have you considered Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless rather than Wall of Limbs? The wall seems slow and difficult to activate in response to removal. The sorcery versions can take people by surprise, and synergize well with Sanguine Bond/Vizkopa Guildmage/Defiant Bloodlord in case the infinite combo is not available.

Things to Drop


Brainstorm - one time not enough. Consider Sensei's Divining Top, Pongify/Rapid Hybridization - Ok. Consider Path to Exile and Stasis Snare


Potentially getting to the point of too many sweepers, but I think its ok.


Archangel of Tithes - Just ok., Filigree Familiar - Not enough, Heliod, God of the Sun - Really not that great, Palisade Giant - Probably better served as another enchantment


Mind Unbound - Consider the fact that it isnt a may ability


Dovin Baan - Really not that great

Things to Consider

Sol Ring!!!!, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Sun Titan, Blind Obedience - Technically just a white color identity, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Luminarch Ascension, Land Tax, Frozen AEther, Chromatic Lantern, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Cryptic Command, Capsize!!!, Forbid, MindStone, Commander's Sphere, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, AEtherize, Mystic Confluence, Quarantine Field, Austere Command, Entreat the Angels, Mystic Remora, Thassa, God of the Sea, Jace, Architect of Thought, Venser, Shaper Savant
