ThallionDarkshine on Captain Sisay and the Legendary Hatebears

Is Gyre Sage really worth it as a mana dork? Maybe something like Bloom Tender or land untapping like Voyaging Satyr or Krosan Restorer would be better, since you should be able to find Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Growing Rites of Itlimoc consistently.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip also feels a tad out of place, maybe try adding another hatebear. Hushwing Gryff, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Containment Priest, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben are great hosers for various strategies, while Recruiter of the Guard can tutor up a bunch of hatebears. In addition, Ramunap Excavator could help against the land destruction you're facing.

Gottsplitter: Hey...thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I've actually dabbled on/included the cards you've suggested at one point but decided to not include them due to my deck direction (casual big mana life-drain). Most of my decks are around 75% so I'm hoping to make this more casual on a higher curve with pet cards (that I usually don't play in 75% decks) like Rise of the Dark Realms and Blood Tribute.

  • Oversold Cemetery: The problem I see with this card is that I want instant speed access to my gy to perform a bunch of shenanigan that same turn. This card essentially does nothing the turn it comes in and I have to wait a turn for it to get a creature back to my hand. Cards like Haunted Crossroads might be suboptimal at first but it does synergize with Grim Haruspex to allow me to recur my creatures multiple times a turn.

  • Ranger of Eos: I don't run too many 1 drops to warrant the inclusion...I do run Recruiter of the Guard which is fantastic.

  • Necrotic Sliver: Not really a fan of having to spend 3 mana and it's hard to reuse multiple times a turn. For me, it's all about ETB/LTB abusable value.

Recruiter of the Guard would be a perfect tutor for your deck

Recruiter of the Guard would be pretty great in your list I think.

Dust Bowl and Flagstones of Trokair

Recruiter of the Guard is worthy of a spot.

Sanctum Prelate?

Peacekeeper is awesome with Sun Titan. Frontline Medic is more narrow but definetly strong depending on meta. Haazda Shield Mate might have some potential alongside the Titan.

Maybe Orim's Chant for that Isochron Scepter. Tithe is funky in mono white and fits under it as well.

Ay yi yi, Huevos mas grandes!

Goodness gracious, great balls of fire.

Combat Celebrant, Tilonalli's Skinshifter and Recruiter of the Guard could be useful to this theme.

Thanks for the comment, Coward_Token! Some good stuff here - I may end up trying a "3 or greater" power build some day to leverage things like Elemental Bond. Seems like fun.

Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard are also excellent suggestions - if I get an extra of either I'll have to swap them in for sure.

Hello, really fun deck you've got going here, it's been nice to follow its continuous development. I have some thoughts, forgive me if they contain too many things you already know:

How is Curse of Predation working out for you? I feel the deck already has OK weenie support and that the slot could be better served making it more consistent by patching up its weak points

Some sets of possible drawpower alternatives:

Someone mentioned Recruiter of the Guard so I'd thought I'd point out the old-school Imperial Recruiter as a possible alternative to it for the sake of completion. Out of the cards in the current deck they each have exclusive access to the following creatures:

  • Guard: Fumiko, Mirri & Tireless Tracker

  • Imperial: Selvala & Windborn Muse

Finally, a somewhat radical & meta-dependent suggestion that would probably require other changes: Angel of Jubilation. It hates on sac engines trying to abuse your gifted tokens, but it conflicts with Selfless Spirit and the three fetchlands (And you might find that it comes in a bit too late due to its mana cost, both in terms of CMC & symbols)
