Magnanimous on How would you "fix" white

1 day ago

You should play blue for powerful, resilient answers and card advantage.

You should play white (in a control deck) for wacky and synergistic interactions that that achieve the same thing but in a really roundabout way.

I'd also like to cut traditional removal out of white, such as Path to Exile and Wrath of God.

And now, some examples of what I like about white: Flagstones of Trokair, Lapse of Certainty, Land Tax, Balance, Brought Back, Mana Tithe, Grand Abolisher, Mother of Runes.

Curse of Curiosity

Enchantment - Aura Curse

Enchant player

Whenever enchanted searches their library, the sacrifice a land.

Path to Exile goes from excellent to cruel.

But generally, tutors and fetchlands are the way players search their library. Maralen of the Mornsong would synergize very well with this.

I'd like a bear. 2/2 for 2CMC or a Bear creature type, either way!

Hi there. So I have a sliver deck too, and it's great fun to play... Maybe not for everyone else, but that's not really my problem right? Lol. Have a look on my profile, it's on there.

So there is definitely going to be a +1, because slivers! For the hive!

So some suggestions maybe:

  1. Skyshroud Claim would enable you to get 2 of you shock lands and help fix you for mana, as it searches for forest type. Obviously fetches would be good, but they are super expensive.

  2. Some non Exile based boardwipes could be a good plan. You have Sliver Hivelord, so destruction effects are just fun. Classic Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act is fun in conjunction with Spiteful Sliver and you can even look at mass land destruction, as your slivers will be able to produce mana.

  3. Morophon, the Boundless could be a good shout for your build, as yours is a much more creature heavy, less combo based build.

  4. Some real good enchantments to help are Mana Echoes and Intruder Alarm. Can make you have real explosive turns, and in conjunction with haste and mana production slivers you have the chance to tutor and play your whole deck with Sliver Overlord. Depends which way you want to go though.

  5. There are better versions and more utile slivers you can use. Just having a look on mtg gatherer can help you find potentially more efficient versions of the slivers you have.

  6. I think maybe there could be room for more targetted removal. Path to Exile, Utter End, Vindicate, Terminate. The list is huge. Sometimes that spot removal can help you in a pinch.

  7. Patriarch's Bidding is fantastic. Bounces you back from a boardwipe. Is a bit pricey though.

Hope this helps and rock on!

Don't come in here and insult other users and their content.

If you don't like it, don't say anything.

And if you don't want to be nice, don't come back.

This is not a thread for taking personal attacks out against others. This is a thread for making card ideas.

Being able to exile and cast three cards per turn is pretty damn good. Being able to do it as though they had flash and spending any color mana means you aren't locked out of options.

And he doesn't need to attack for it to happen. Mill them out and Bojuka Bog that shit. Path to Exile their creature and get it out from under them. Karn Liberated and cast their stuff.

Exile matters is an untapped and under appreciated theme to build around. This card let's players take advantage of it.

So, with all do respect, you're wrong.

You could Settle the Wreckage yourself if you have a few Sacred Cat lurking around. Although, it would be very difficult to accomplish, not to mention the mana curve. Man! i wish that they re-introduced Path to Exile! That besides the former card is one of the few white ramp cards! I also recommend Oketra's Monument, as that is a ramp card.

Thanks for the great suggestions @ 9-lives!

Too bad Path to Exile is not Pioneer-legal...

Also, if you're looking for mana ramp, I would recommend using Path to Exile on your Sacred Cat! You can embalm it!
