Ranger of Eos Discussion
1 week ago
I like many of your cards and others, not so much. Ill start with the good part.
Shivan Harvest: Awesome, gonna have to include that in my own deck. I keep forgetting this card exists.
Mardu Ascendancy: Yes and no. The first part of the enchantment is decent for an aggro deck, but the second part will be mostly useless. Your biggest enemy will be wraths, not combat. If you're running Edgar, you will probably have the most creatures.
Obzedat's Aid: A great card.
Lapse of Certainty: It always helps to be a little tricky. A spell like this will never go unused if you draw it during a game.
Bitterblossom: An excellent card for Edgar. I'd run it myself if I had one.
Now for the bad:
Quag Vampires: I would swap those guys with a
Shadow Alley Denizen, who gives more utility.
Vedalken Orrery: Why? You'll not generate a large amount of mana with this deck and your sorcery count is also low. Not worth the slot in this deck.
Ghostly Prison: You're gonna have a buttload of creatures, so it's just better to block with those, instead of a 3 cmc enchantment that you could replace with Vindicate, Shared Animosity, or a Boros Charm to protect yourself from wraths, which will make you cry. Also, you could fetch that last card with your sunforger, so there's that.No Stromkirk Captain? You just HAVE to run this guy, no way around that.
Ranger of Eos: Your one drops are not that impactful to warrant him being here.
Lastly, as suggestion, I would run Phyrexian Reclamation. You could return a vampire to your hand, cast it again, and activate Edgar's eminence in a recurring fashion.
Hope this helped!

Quick note: Ranger of Eos technically has value on etb not cast - so my point remains about getting value right away vs Mentor of the Meek although technically eos does nothing if countered ... sorry for not being 100% perfect all the time there ... don't want any wrath from the misinformation police

I wouldn't underestimate the power of Ranger of Eos because you need norin and sisters and possibly some oher 1 drops. In my deck he is even better because he also gets Lightning Berserker. Norin sisters depends on synergy between many different pieces and eos improves consistency a lot. I actually added Magma Jet in place of Lightning Bolt because the scry also helps get all the synergy pieces.
When mentor of the meek is allowed to stick, it is a bomb. It is easy to remove, though. So I often sideboard it. Eos alredy did work on cast while meek needs to sit there while you have open mana to use to impact the game.
There are many different ways to go with Norin sisters. My advice is to try proxy playtesting.
I see a definite difference between the norin sisters beater win strategy with legion loyalist and no genesis chamber vs the dd with tremors/purphoros and yes to the genesis chamber (because you aren't trying to connect for damage - that is auto triggered). The 2 different decks share a base of norin, sisters, eos, and things like bolt/path but then they branch off, essentially trying to do totally different things to win.

guessling I think if I were to put Impact Tremors in I'd probably drop the Champion of the Parish. I'd also think about swapping the Ranger of Eos for Mentor of the Meek. The Legion Loyalist is a good call but I have trouble deciding what to cut something for it.

Proclamation of Rebirth -Forecast sidesteps counterspell heavy decks, always a 1 of trust me
Spent a year tinkering with aggro-lifegain, was sort of an opposite zoo style deck. If you are going wide and low add in some control like ghostly prision, Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring and both of the soul sisters: Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant (8 of total). If you are going for a fast burn-gain style the cards I listed above would work great, personal advice from a year and a half experiance playong with only lifegain: if you go Soul sisters prepare control, if you go Martyr Proc then prepare for disruption. Also Intervention Pact is highly underrated, it won me a game aginst infect and would be great in the current Death's Shadow meta for modern.

While I like it, targeted removal will ruin your day. This is modern. A couple Fatal Pushs and a Path to Exile are not that uncommon. That is why, in my soul sisters build, I run Spectral Procession and Honor of the Pure, which most decks in modern struggle to deal with. Also, like Ranger of Eos really just has to be here. Why is it not here.

Lastly, Ranger of Eos is an excellent tutor if you have enough enough 1 drops

If you're thinking of splashing white perhaps a certain number of Ranger of Eos?
