Ranger of Eos Discussion

They'll officially say they don't pay attention, but htey quite clearly do care about the secondary market.
All it takes them is a quick search on the online card seller sites to know that, say, Tarmogoyf is a really popular card that players value a lot, so if they put it in a set with some other chase cards like Snapcaster Mage, and then some middling priced cards like Ranger of Eos, then fill, followed up by a huge steaming pile of bulk jank and bam! - a set that will sell like crazy. Then it's just a matter of figuring out which cards make a passable set and at what price point they can get away with it.
Mystery Boosters will be interesting - it's like a chaos draft you won't have to curate (having wanted to do exactly that but not having the money for the boosters I wanted for it). It does nothing to harm card value one way or the other.
Secret Lairs, so far, have been an interesting experiment. Reprint some valuable, but niche, cards and then some middling-lower price non-niche cards and print to demand? We'll likely not see "All 5 Zendikar fetches for $40!" out of it, but the concept is neat I guess.
As mentioned, the biggest thing about affordability is what level of affordability we're stipulating. I, for one, think that no card should be worth more than $20. Is that realistic? No, but I don't expect it to be, either. I've heard people at my game shop who have proudly stated they've had to live on Top Ramen for the month because they spent too much on magic. Which I find pathetic, but that's not my life to live.
WotC will continue to pay attention to the secondary market and use it as a guide to determine what they put in sets for a long time to come, I'm sure. The real question is - how long can they go with giving folks the bare minimum in sets in comparison to set price before they find their balance? Ultimate Masters sold super well, and it was WAY out of my price range... but that tells WotC that the ceiling hasn't been hit yet. When they launch a set full of goodies that doesn't sell well, then they'll know.

They're still worth talking about. Serra Ascendant tends to generate salt at casual tables. Both it and Phyrexian Dreadnought , are tutorable by something like Ranger of Eos . Having never played Phyrexian Dreadnought , I wonder if 12 damage is enough to justify a one drop fling-able that does nothing without Brion on board?

Last thing. Hero of Bladehold , and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are good creatures. But that's not the cards in question. Its Anointed Procession , this card does absolutely nothing for this deck unless you have one or both of the named cards above. You have enlightened tutor in the deck too but I cant see myself tutor for Anointed Procession over Smothering Tithe or Test of Endurance or any other strong enchantments in the deck. I'd cut Anointed Procession and put back in Ranger of Eos because tutoring for the 2 soul sisters in the deck will always be worth it.

Have you considered playing Ranger-Captain of Eos or plain ol' Ranger of Eos ? You have a decent package with the three 1CMC sac/discard outlets that you're playing. The Eos Bros are something I've been considering for my Alesha deck for a while.
I'm surprised by the conspicuous absence of Swords to Plowshares . What gives? Your interaction package seems odd with Enlightened Ascetic but no swords. Darkblast is another odd choice. Are these all meta calls?

You have a lot of creatures that require an instant-speed sacrifice outlet. For this reason I think you should play Ranger-Captain of Eos and Ranger of Eos in order to find your Viscera Seer . I think you could also consider playing Weathered Wayfarer as a 2nd 1-drop if you play Ranger of Eos .

Cheap cards u should get some amount of:
General value goodstuff:
Skullclamp (probably the most powerful equipment in the game. And drawing cards is fucking awesome)
Reanimation (very good when you're actively putting cards from your deck into your graveyard):
Mausoleum Secrets (very cool in your deck)
You should probably choose whether you want the deck to be more or less focused on tokens. If you don't want tokens to be a main theme, you should probably just run Ophiomancer and a couple other generators and put in more reanimation effects like Phyrexian Delver .
You should still run Karmic Guide and Reveillark no matter what you do because they're too good not to. With a sac outlet, you can sacrifice them and bring them back an infinite number of times and kill your opponents with Komrade.
I would run quite a few sac outlets to make sure you can keep sacrificing your stuff for value. The best ones are Viscera Seer , Carrion Feeder and Cartel Aristocrat . Skullclamp works especially well with sac outlets

Traditionally these lists run Martyr of Sands and Soul's Attendant . The old school variants used Squadron Hawk for bigger martyrs, most modern lists are red/white for Norin the Wary / Genesis Chamber .
Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos are powerful tools to put a lot of lifegain creatures on the board. Black white 'pay life'/ Children of Korlis is a thing. Condemn plays nice with alternative wincons. Essence Warden and cards like Weather the Storm point towards a green list, which would likely run some newer token-generation like Haazda Marshal & Legion's Landing Flip.
Have fun brewing- martyr proc/soul sisters is a classic which deserves to be back in the meta.
