oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on help: abusing the new gideon ...

1 week ago

Regarding Gideon of the Trials in the new Amonkhet set, how can we maximize this last/ ultimate ability? So far, I have Avacyn, Angel of Hope/ Sigarda, Host of Herons/ Privileged Position/ Leyline of Sanctity/ Peacekeeper. So, he can't be destroyed, sacrificed, targeted by spells or abilities, chosen to take damage instead of player, or damaged in combat. However, I can't get around Thief of Blood and mass exile, like Perilous Vault. Any ideas?

Just curious as to why your enchantress deck has no enchantresses. Is the Eidolon posing as that? There are three actual enchantresses you could use for your deck if you wanted.Yavimaya Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, and Mesa Enchantress...all modern legal. Rancor might be a good inclusion. If you can afford them, Stony Silence and Rest in Peace as well as Leyline of Sanctity is good against targeted effects. Privileged Position is also interesting.

I think I'm good with the last comment I left: Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, 2x Shardless Agent,Summer Bloom, Toolcraft Exemplar, Martyr's Bond, Emeria, The Sky Ruin

I looked through your binder and saw that you were looking for Privileged Position and Saffi Eriksdotter if you wanted to include those in the trade though

Firebird on White Angels, Devoted Thalia

No, no, it's good. I prefer your input without it being sugar-coated, because I'd like to make this one day a competitive deck. Now, I know Modern is a fast format, and my Ledgewalking Renegade Elves deck (other than the sideboard) works pretty well there. Actually, this version of the Angel deck has been able to beat that one at times, though with great effort. I figured it's worth asking: is it possible to slow things down if you can't move fast enough? Silence seems to work well for that, as does Thalia (in either form) and sweeps, removal, etc. But I feel like it's missing something, regardless.

I do have and used in the past Quicksilver Amulet to help speed things up. I wanted to keep this mono-white, but I struggle against the urge to run Sigarda, Host of Herons and stuff, too. Or maybe transform it into a shell-type deck, using Grand Abolisher, Thalia, Leyline of Sanctity, and Privileged Position, along with Sigarda and Avacyn to make myself and my stuff impossible to touch.

I don't know. I'd like to keep something mono-white, but no idea just how to build it. Going GW would alleviate a lot of my problems, but I fear it dilutes the theme I'm going for, too, even if it doesn't necessarily.

To be honest, I am not really sure that there is a huge problem that needs to be corrected. If they are using cards to deconstruct my defense, they are not using them to defeat me. Lots of defense is overlapping, so they can take out my best defense, but there will often be other defense left over. This sap on their resources often means that they could be getting bigger effects by targeting other things. As they are making these plays, eventually, I will have an attack that is disproportional to it's cost in terms of cards and mana. That is basically the strength of the deck. Everything costs way less in terms of cards and mana than it gives you, and it is all designed to drop bombs that are as asymmetric as possible. In the mean time, it hopes to position itself as less of a threat than others, so that the opponents' resources are all pointed elsewhere. If there was a card that protected my stuff, was inexpensive in terms of CMC, and was asymmetric, I would run it. With different color identity rules, Privileged Position would likely be that card. If Avacyn, Angel of Hope wasn't CMC 8, it may have been that card. As it stands, I think I can live without it. I will just continue to run Boros Charm instead.

Wicked_N_Irish Privileged Position and Greater Auramancy will be making their way into the deck now. Thank you for the suggestion. And I agree there is no reason not to run Haven of the Spirit Dragon.

Plea for Guidance is a useful tutor. Privileged Position and Greater Auramancy provide much needed protection for your Doubling Season. Maybe even a Reclaim, just in case.

TheRedGoat on Breaking the limits of non infinite combos

2 weeks ago

Since you're not running control, I'd stay away from enchantments like Humility, but otherwise anything that is a heavy enchantment support card is fair game.

All of the enchantress creatures for instance make for easy card draw, in addition to Eidolon of Blossoms, and of course special tutors.

Some key "power tutors" in your colors would be Wargate and Guided Passage.

Pillow-fort cards like Sphere of Safety combined with Privileged Position will be your bread and butter for surviving until the later game when you have all your mana to play your combos.

Once you've nailed those cards down is where your combo pieces come in with group hug mechanics. For instance, Primal Vigor may not double counters except for the +1/+1 kind, but it will double tokens given away from something like Forbidden Orchard. Thrown in an enchantment group hug card or two and you're pretty well set to sneak in Ink-Treader and combo off.

I've tried not to to give a complete list of cards btw largely to let you decide them on your own (and such a list would be enormous). If you'll look up Bant or Naya enchantment builds then you should easily be able to see where you can make cuts for where having a 4th color will be better. Or a 5th color come to think of it, since you say Ink-treader may not be your commander for the group, so you could just as soon go the full 5.
