Qasali Pridemage Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks for the comment TzickyT.
He's a 3/2 for CMC3, so he's decently in scale. He is not a cat, so can't use the Eminence with him. He does have built-in recursion. In my build, he only has 10 targets (that's pretty low), but Lost Leonin, Puresteel Paladin, Qasali Pridemage, Swiftfoot Boots, Sylvan Library, Umezawa's Jitte all pretty high value targets.
Because he's not a cat, and because he doesn't have enough targets (10), I wouldn't run him in this deck, plus I think he is built for being abused (which I like, but is not the goal of this build).
If you want to build around him, I think he would be great.
Can't think of anyone else off the top of my head he combos with, but:
Another tool in the Saffi Eriksdotter combo wheelhouse. I'm testing Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters of which neither are Cats, so really bothers me. It plays on my Life gain Sub-Theme, but it's still not right.
I've worked out a couple combos with Cats, but nothing really concrete yet. Renegade Rallier is a bit too far away from my goal, but a pretty amazing guy, I like him. He feels more Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or Karametra, God of Harvests or 100% Saffi Eriksdotter to me. It's easily tutorable combo in . With a Greater Good can tutor for the Blasting Station or whatever damage outlet you need.
If you decide to run him, I would build some synergy around him with a recursive sub-theme.

i run mono green treefolk.... i vote Wickerbough Elder over Qasali Pridemage.... and some utility to consider is Descendants' Path and Elvish Piper for more cheating creatures in play....something very simply like Rampant Growth is a good (budget) way to help with color fixing as well as thinning out lands so Leaf-Crowned Elder will trigger.

You are runnning a high number of lands for an aggro/midrange deck - I would trim it down to 21-22 and replace them with 2 more bolts. I would also try to find room for Collected Company, maybe cut the Ajani, Caller of the Prides? They don't really add a lot to an aggro deck and are awful without other creatures to support. I agree that Loam Lions are worth consideration but idk what to replace with them. Maybe change the numbers around a bit: 2 Regal Caracal (high CMC), 2 Qasali Pridemage (good but discourages attacking with the team which is what you want to be doing) and +4 Loam Lion for another efficient 1 drop.

Maybe not the suggestion you're looking for, but I would consider some Qasali Pridemage. It's a cat, gives exalted, and is also artifact/enchant hate :)

Cool idea! Your deck is mostly based on standard cards, but in modern, there are a lot of great options for a cat-themed deck.
You can consider the following cards:
Wild Nacatl (works best if you splash some red)

Modern Thursday 12/4/18:2-2: Testing Ensnaring Bridge and Nihil Spellbomb. They were both epic game changers!
2-1 GW Hatebears: Not the usual Hatebears build the plan for this deck was to play manadorks, then cast Lingering Souls and activate Gavony Township over and over. Game 1 The Rack was faster than them. Game 2, multiple Voice of Resurgence hit me for lethal the turn before I could stabilise. Game 3 was epic. Swamp into Rack, Swamp into Wrench Mind, Swamp into Bridge, Swamp into Soul's Betrayal killing 5 creatures, Swamp into Lily and Smallpox. It was just bad luck that they never saw a Loxodon Smiter or Qasali Pridemage.
2-1 Living End: Opponent saw 4 copies of Ancestral Recall in every game, yep they cast 12 copies...Game 1 their hand was ripped apart for an easy win. Game 2 the recalls found Living End while also always keeping up counter magic. Game 3 was a stalemate, Delirium Skeins turned off their recalls. Cryptic Command wasnt kept up for bridge and was wasted countering The Rack et, al. I sat behind two bridges and two Nihil Spellbombs for an easy win, cracked Spellbomb in response to Living End. They decked themselves. The best game of magic Ive had in a long time.
0-2 Infect: super fast infect deck. Geths Verdict is too slow. They played only the one creature game 1, I didnt see a kill spell, my discard turned on Become Immense, if I had been able to kill he creature or play a bridge it would have been different. Game 2 went similar to game 1, I saw a few smallpox and Geths but they always had an extra creature. Jace flipping was disastrous....
1-2 WUB Control: Game 1 was an easy win, which was bad as I didnt see much of his deck. I only saw Elspeth, Sun's Champion as a win con. Game two I side in needle and name Elspeth... They top deck and play Gideon Jura, and steal the game. Game 3 I dont see and needle or a bridge or a geths, and Jura steals it again (unfortunately I could only find and afford 2/4). I see this game as my mistakes losing he game not anything else.
Placed 7th out of 16.

Hello, thanks for the upvote and comment on my deck! Imperial Seal is not required at all, your deck will still function excellently without one. In fact, I don't find myself playing my deck very often because of how linear it is. That's my biggest complaint about the deck actually, although it's a complicated combo, it always wins in the same way (usually starting with Protean Hulk). It's sort of like playing Ad Nauseam in Modern. Oh well.
Anyways, here's my suggestions for your next upgrades: Eternal Witness, Birthing Pod, Dance of the Dead (I like the enchantment reanimate spells because of the interaction with Leonin Relic-Warder), Life/Death, and maybe a Journey to Eternity Flip. If you get a Birthing Pod, Felidar Guardian becomes amazing, allowing you to turn any 3-drop into a 5-drop. Recruiter of the Guard is great at finding combo pieces and not too pricey. Altar of Bone and Eldritch Evolution are great ways to add consistency to your combo as well.
For cuts, I would suggest Will-o'-the-Wisp, Angel of Glory's Rise, and maybe Utopia Sprawl (looks like you sometimes won't have a forest when you want to cast this). I think Selvala and Yahenni are OK for now, but I like Caustic Caterpillar more than Qasali Pridemage. I also think some of the above suggestions are better than Breath of Life, Zombify and Reclaim.
One more thing, I like the idea of Entomb in this deck (yours and mine), mostly because having a Blood Artist in the 'yard is nearly always better than having it in the deck. I think I will add it to my list, so I appreciate that. I'll subscribe to your deck and try to keep up with any changes, and remember that my suggestions are just a quick takes and you always have the right idea for what will work best in your deck!

Really it all depends on how afraid of answers you are. Control decks really shine in game 2 and 3 where they can board in answers, so in my opinion, the best midrange/aggro decks can board in answers to the answers. Personally, I would run a little bit of hand attack mainboard (1-2 Inquisition of Kozilek). If I had to make some minor nitpicks to your current sideboard I would say to cut Timely Reinforcements, because the fact that it's sorcery speed means it's an inefficient answer to wraths, and gives your opponent a chance to swing. A better answer would just be to hold up a Secure the Wastes in hand. So perhaps cut the Timely Reinforcements for 2 more secures in the board. Voice of Resurgence is also so good that I would mainboard it if I were you. Again, it's all up to you, and the way it is currently looks pretty good, but as a control player, there is nothing I hate more than Secure the Wastes (due to it being instant speed), Voice of Resurgence (because it stops me from playing stuff on your turn), and Qasali Pridemage. I like the direction this is going, though, and will definitely add this deck (and ones like it) to my list of decks to playtest against. Good luck!
