kamarupa on Throne of Thorns

Thanks a bunch, Kyln! As it stands now, there isn't any spell in this deck that can stop a Terminus. However, I would say that, in general, it's best to wait to cast Life and Limb or Sylvan Awakening until all the combo parts are in hand. In the case of Terminus, casting a Sylvan Awakening with a Throne of the God-Pharaoh down will deal opponents a decent chunk of damage. In the same turn, a Harvest Season will double the lands, but those lands won't be creatures. Since Terminus is a sorcery, an opponent planning on using it against this deck will have to wait until after the Throne deals them damage and after my lands have been doubled. If they do cast Terminus on their next turn, they'll only get half the lands, which would then allow me to cast a Life and Limb on the next turn, provided I have one in hand.

If I were concerned with fending off Terminus, I'd probably add something like Judge's Familiar, Mana Tithe or Restoration Angel to the sideboard. I can't recall any mass flicker spells off hand, but that would be a great way to thwart Terminus, provided it was White or Green. Obviously, I could splash blue for a Negate or something.

Stormforge_Mystic on Meta question (s)

Well it's never really been tier 1 deck and Death and taxes decks that used to play cards like Wall of Omens and Restoration Angel has fallen out of favor. Probably because of fast aggro decks in the format like Humans, Mono G Affinity and other decks like that which all are pretty bad matchup for those white based tax decks. You can still play your Boros Superfriends i have no doubts but you just have to learn new meta matchups all around so you know what you are doing against these new decks.

with Restoration Angel and Shalai, Voice of Plenty 4 drops causing any issues? Hitting green have you thought about Voice of Resurgence in the main instead of side?

What about Aven Mindcensor? Always had fun with him.

Hi! I dig this build. I play a lot of taxes (predominately mono W and BW) and I'd like to offer some advice:

-Noble Hierarch is much better than birds in this deck. The Exalted does a lot more than you'd think.

-If you're running the Eldrazi Displacer package, you're most likely going to want to run 4, as well as 4 Eldrazi Temple.

-I dont think you Have enough multicolored creatures to make Wilt-Leaf Liege worth it. If you go the Eldrazi Displacer/Eldrazi Temple route, I'd slot in some Thought-Knot Seers. Otherwise I'd consider some amount of Loxodon Smiter and/or Restoration Angel. Depends on your meta.

-Since you're playing mana dorks, it's also worth considering slotting out Aether Vial for Collected Company. If you do this, of course, I'd also drop most/if not all of the Flickerwisps. You can also try running some combination of Collected Company and Aether Vial. Spirits runs 4 and 3. again, depends on your meta and what you want to be doing each game.

-Voice of Resurgence is a good card. Might be worth making room for a couple copies. Just a consideration.

Hope that helps! Deck's awesome.

ballisticexperiment on Resto Gonti

I'm trying to help my friend brew a deck using Gonti, Lord of Luxury.

Deck is meant to pick at opponents win conditions and either play them itself or put them off their game until our as yet to be decided win condition can be dropped.

We've worked out that the best build is a Rites shell with Unburial Rites and Restoration Angel. Since we're already picking our opponents deck apart, Praetor's Grasp furthers that strategy.

B/W so far, so Lingering Souls is a solid call.

Looking to fill this out a bit with some other suggestions. Competitive options are best, as we would like to see this be a solid rogue deck at an fnm or local tournament.

If there is a better shell for Gonti than Rites, please don't hesitate to tell me I'm using the wrong shell.

Assuming a Rites shell, should there be a third color for better options, or just the two for more consistency?

Since Praetor's Grasp doesn't have the 'you may use any color of mana clause, is it still worth using with a filter land or Mana Confluence or should it be dropped entirely?

Is Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip / Liliana, Defiant Necromancer  Flip worth using here as addition recursion / value? I know she can't target Gonti, but working on the assumption that there will be other ETB creature targets.
