Recumbent Bliss Discussion
4 months ago
If you are looking for cards to take out, the primary cards I would look at: Martial Law - Only gets one creature, and is somewhat slow as a 4 mana do-nothing enchantment, while it can eek out value, it can also do very little Recumbent Bliss - Trading 1 for 1 with a single opponent sets you behind the other players, and I'm not sure the life gain is worth it. Ith, High Arcanist - Seems like it doesn't quite do near enough for its mana cost, and its suspend can be really slow. Like, if you have it on turn 2, great, but that may not happen often enough to be worth it. Icy Manipulator - Like martial law, but also you have to pay for it. It's by no means useless, but it's slow, it only works on thing a turn, and it might just do nothing for you. Mind's Eye - is super slow. Like, if you want to draw, lets say 5 cards, you have to invest 4 mana intially, and then 4 more mana over subsequent turns. Or, you could just cast Tidings and draw 4 cards for 5 mana. Victory Chimes - just meh. While you can dream of making cool deals for the extra mana, as someone who has played Spectral Searchlight , its mostly just a bad mana rock.
Also, just as a word of advice, one thing you need to be aware of as a control deck is that when you use removal on someone's threat, be it a counter, or other removal, it puts you at card disadvantage. With that in mind, I would advise cheaper counterspells, such as Swan Song , Arcane Denial style cards. Also, packing some more card draw would maybe not be the worst idea, instead of the group draw artifacts you have currently. That's my personal advice! Good luck :+)

Love this! Having flying on every creature adds so much value to the deck, and the counters really play off each other nicely. I swapped Cartouche of Knowledge and Recumbent Bliss with Ordeal of Thassa and Pacifism , as well as adding in Meandering River s.
Great build, love the $5 decks!

Ive seen decks similar to this. In fact I have one(Its Humans not Cats). You are missing a couple staple cats and some non-creature spells that could really help.
Fleecemane Lion - This is a winocn plain and simple
Collected Company - Can put most of yours creatures onto the battlefield at any given time and can easily swing a game in your favor.
Harmonize - Gives you much needed card draw
Now i should probably talk about some cards that probably shouldn't be in this deck. I understand if you own all these cards but if you do not, i don't think that there is any reason for them to be in here. If you have counter argument Id love to hear it.
Heroes' Reunion - I'm sorry if you are going for a lifelink, but it just isn't worth to have a straight lifegain spell as apposed to say Collected Company or Blossoming Defense or something that gives you more value than simply 7 life.
Disenchant - This is a card for your sideboard, something that you sub in when you need it
Survival Cache - im on the fence. I feel like there could be better options, but it seems to fit relatively well.
Soul Net - Isn't legal in Modern and doesn't really work regardless
In case you want to check out my humans deck here it is: Thalia's Horde of Humans but this is your deck and as such, you get the final say in any change.

this is coming along nicely, I especially like the addition of Survival Cache even if I'm not sure how good it is and Basilica Screecher for that repeated life gain. I think you need a bit more removal though, rn it's pretty clunky with only Pestilence and Recumbent Bliss. I would cut Sylvok Lifestaff for those spots

Note to self: Replace Soulfire Grand Master with a Wild Slash, a Shock, a Twin Bolt, and a Warleader's Helix. Swap the two Recumbent Blisses for the two Pacifisms. Have the Tarfires instead of the Fiery Impulses. Remove the Blazing Hope and the Erase for a couple Mudbutton Torchrunners.

Not a fan of Haunted Cloak, it's somewhat narrow but might like to see a card like Rhox Faithmender in here (by itself reduces Licia cost by a minimum of two, potentiall getting her down to WBR easily) I feel similarly about Prowler's Helm, although its effect might be more easily replaced with the more standard Whispersilk Cloak.
If you've found Killing Wave to be great, awesome, but in my head in the commander format I'm just not sure I can wrap around it, it wipes out token swarms but doesn't take out critical creatures that need to be removed unless you're somehow representing lethal with it ?
Cards in general that might be good: Blood Tribute, Grasp of Fate, Recumbent Bliss (pacifism and gain one life every turn seems nice), Death Grasp is expensive but I personally like it as targeted removal and also lifegain synergy. Lategame could even become player removal if you've lowered life totals enough.
