Pious Evangel Discussion

SkullOfPoison on Life

Some cards like Gideon Jura, Worn Powerstone, Comeuppance, Disenchant, Slaughter Pact, Eldrazi Displacer, Skeletal Scrying and Akroma's Vengeance.

You want to focus on the life gain theme but there are better cards then Retreat to Hagra, Cathedral Sanctifier, Auriok Champion, and Pious Evangel  Flip.

Idk if anyone has mentioned this, but a growing number of cards are not loading their reversed side for the transform cards, and many cards are loading as generic black images with only the card name. Also, many cards (Especially the ones reprinted in Iconic Masters) are failing to load prices.

Here's a list of cards I have noticed problems with on the decks I have created.

So far that's all I have noticed, but I did notice that with these cards when I enter playtesting it often has issues. It won't truly "randomize" decks (You'll often topdeck the same card you just drew, or you'll shuffle all lands to the top / bottom).

I don't know if it's a coincidence but it's worth noting these are all black cards with the exception of Pious Evangel, who's a white creature but transforms into a black creature and it is the "Flip" side-text that won't load. That, and in playtest when you flip him over it reveals the generic back of the card, and not Wayward Disciple.

Dusk isn't really useful here, Dawn is, but you can get cheaper cards that have just the Dawn effect. Since you're placing a ton of counters on your stuff, Dusk will become a wrath of God, or in some cases, a one-sided board wipe only affecting you. ('Cause y'know [Primer] Doran the Unstoppable exists)

Maybe remove the "vanilla" vampires, primarily Falkenrath Reaver. I also don't feel as though you should run anything but Vampires, as Markov prefers vampires over anything, so Pious Evangel and Mentor of the Meek might be worth taking another look at. (Evangel might work, but I don't think you can make enough mana for Mentor to be that useful)

On to card suggestions!

Legion's Landing  Flip

Rootborn Defenses

Cathars' Crusade

Teferi's Protection

Kindred Charge

Blasphemous Act

Eldrazi Monument

Impact Tremors/Goblin Bombardment/Raid Bombardment/Pandemonium

Skullclamp

(I can't actually suggest any of these cards, 'cause according to tapped out, everything but basic lands in banned in Leviathan. I swing at you for lethal with 3 mountains and a swamp, lol)

Pious Evangel does not flip in the playtester or anywhere else for that matter

Gadianten on Ravos and Tymna Cleric Tribal HELP!

As a fellow cleric tribal enthusiast I appreciate where you are trying to go with the deck but you seem to be suffering some of the same issues I ran into myself, namely not having focused synergies that build into a win condition.

A strong sub theme of your deck seems to revolve around life gain, so with that in mind lets add to and weaponize this sub theme into win conditions. I agree with kamelyan that you should add Conspiracy as its quite nasty with Rotlung Reanimator and Cabal Archon, the only reason I don't run these two in my cleric deck is the hardcore clash with Angel of Glory's Rise. Beacon of Immortality and Test of Endurance make for an interesting and intractable win condition that plays along with your life gain theme for surprise victories. Stern Judge with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth can be nasty repeatable drain where you use your life gain to stay ahead of other peoples dwindling life totals. Also, consider Greed and Erebos, God of the Dead for further card draw that works with your life gain. Also Boon Reflection might be useful as well.

If you need more cleric beaters try Custodi Soulbinders, Vile Deacon and Transcendent Master.

Some general replacements that might serve you better would be Scholar of Athreos over Pious Evangel  Flip, the drain effect is a nice mana dump, Frontline Medic over Banisher Priest allows you to play more aggressively and the counter ability can catch people by surprise and Grand Abolisher over Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, the Captain generates tokens far to slowly and often requires you to over extend to make it any good.

For additional tribal removal options consider Kor Sanctifiers, War Priest of Thune, Leonin Relic-Warder and Reliquary Monk. Although I find Reliquary Monk and Relic-Warder to be more tricky to use without a sacrifice outlet.

Also don't forget that cleric tribal have A LOT of tax and hate effects within the tribe to play with like Sanctum Prelate, Leonin Arbiter, Glowrider, Ethersworn Canonist and Containment Priest

I hope this helps you, I look forward to seeing where you take the deck.

Jitsrotu on I'll Show You A Token Deck (Darien, King of Kjeldo

I'm looking to make Darien as well. Looks pretty solid to me. Pious Evangel  Flip isn't legal though in mono white because he flips into black. I would also run Mana Vault as it ramps you into Darien and if it pings you, you just create more tokens.

Zingano Yeah I think Drana's Emissary would be better than Pious Evangel  Flip. The only reason I have desperate sentry in there is so that if I sac him with Voldaren Pariah I'll be able to get a benefit out of it. but I'll definitely think about swapping for Kalastria Healer. Although I'm not super confident about Drana. I'm really not gonna be swinging for damage a whole lot until I transform Voldaren Pariah.
