Prismatic Strands Discussion
1 month ago
Well, if you are cutting healer, the only real B card in the main is Outcast. Which, while an ally, does not grow too much. How about cutting B altogether for W. Then, you can add Hada Freeblade instead of changeling and add powerful W stuff like Prismatic Strands to the sb or even main.

Might also consider some landwalk in lieu of relying on Shadow/Hormanship so much. Trailblazer's Boots for example.

Intervention Pact (remember to use double square brackets to link your cards for EZ viewing experience for everyone)
Damage can be dealt by permanents, spells or abilities. Intervention pact does not specify it works versus a certain color only, so it has no restriction on its prevention.
Compare it to Prismatic Strands , which first has you specify a color, then prevents damage from said color.

Hey man! This is Phunlife from XMage. I've been really busy as of late so I've just got to looking at this. I did have it saved though so I would remember to come back and look at it.
Overall, looks good! I do have a couple suggestions for the sideboard though, especially if you want this to compete against top tiers -
I don't understand what exactly Hallow is for or what matchup it could be good in - maybe Tron's Rolling Thunder ? But even so, it feels like a very narrow sideboard card, and I think it could be cut. Maybe Prismatic Strands would be of interest to protect against Burn, or Lone Missionary as additional life gain as well as a body on the field. But Hallow just overall seems like it could be useful in a handful of situations to me.
With both Orzhov Pestilence and Tron on the rise, I'd look into Palace Sentinels as a 2-of in the sideboard. Both of those decks can easily take you to the late game, and without a card advantage engine I think you're lost against them. It's especially good against Orzhov if you can steal the Monarch from them too :D.

VeggiesaurusRex thanks for the quick response, due to the small toughness of boros monarch's creature's i think i can play around Prismatic Strands just by not committing all my mana whenever i activate crypt rats.
me: Crypt Rats for 2 (enough to boardwipe them) with remaining mana available
opp: respond with prismatic strand
me: respond with crypt rats for 2 again using the remaining mana.

killer_eye yes, Crypt Rats can easily wipe Boros Monarch's creatures, but Prismatic Strands completely shuts down Crypt Rats and Consume Spirit and the density of their removal and creature suites make winning with creature beats difficult as well. It's not impossible to win against Boros but it is very difficult.
As for Songs vs Burn, this matchup comes down to whether or not you can find and cast Gnaw to the Bone before turn 4 or 5. If you can, your odds of winning are pretty good. If you can't, you're probably screwed.

drakendark Lookin good...I think you will like Harsh Sustenance , it will win you some games. As far as side board, decks like this are very prone to heavy burn... Electrickery is a staple in Pauper and could ruin you day. My side-board choices for decks like this usually involve lots of protection, for example: Circle of Protection: Red , Apostle's Blessing , Prismatic Strands and Hallow are a few examples that I use. PS Dawn Charm is a good choice also, very versatile card!

although I like the idea, in practice this won't function due to the fact Pestilence isn't dealing combat damage, so basically you would have sac'ed Kami of False Hope for nothing, which would suck for you. Prismatic Strands will work though!!
