Retaliate Discussion

Funkydiscogod and speedchicken29 thanks for the recommendations, i really liked the ideia of Venser's Journal, Retaliate and Isochron Scepter.

Unfortunately Leyline of Sanctity is too expensive and the ideia of this deck is to use cheap cards except Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Sigarda, Host of Herons hahahah but the idea of Ivory Mask is nice !!!

And yes....i know that i should use the set of the best fogs instead of Defend the Hearth but i dont like to use a lot of sets.....i know....its wrong.....buuut.....

Maybe Hallow would be worth considering for noncreature decks like burn?

I think Ethereal Haze is your best fog. Properly timed, it can stop a creature from killing you in a noncombat way. You should get 4 of those.

Do you have enough card draw to make a Venser's Journal worthwhile? A one-of Retaliate might be worth a few laughs, since they're probably going to be swinging all in against you every turn; skip the fog for one turn, and instant wrath them.

Hey friend, cool deck! One of my first EDH decks was an Oloro gain'n'drain build a lot like this. I'd suggest checking out my deck @ Ageless Artifacts for the broad picture of it, but here's what I noticed about your build:

Some of your cards, like Filigree Angel, want to be in a deck with a TON more artifacts than you actually have. Those are the cards I'd cut first. Next, I'd take out cards that want you to attack, like Odric, Lunarch Marshal, It That Betrays, and Archetype of Imagination, since a gain'n'drain build doesn't really want that as much as it wants protection and deterrence. Then, I'd take out some of your removal encahntments like Banishing Light in favor of WB "unconditional" removal like Anguished Unmaking and Utter End or WB board wipes like Retaliate and Fell the Mighty.

As far as cards to put in, I'd shoot for some more of those explosive combos that this deck does so well. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is nuts with Serra Avatar and Vizkopa Guildmage, as is Cradle of Vitality. I'd put in more card draw like Underworld Connections and Greed (Oloro is an expensive and easily-killed commander, so don't always rely on his second ability).

In general, I'd say you need to take out cards that don't enable your primary win conditions or help you survive long enough to find those win cons. However, that's not to say that this isn't a well-thought-out and explosive deck, because it certainly is. Good luck! and mention me in the comments if I can do anything else for you.

To be honest, you are not playing control per se, but, more of a group-slug variant. Run more rattlesnake effects! Where is your False Prophet and your Koskun Falls? Hell, I might have been running Bearer of the Heavens (not likely without Eerie Interlude) next to my Orzhov Advokist (definite inclusion)! :p

Why are you running Caltrops instead of Lightmine Field? Instead of Cauldron Haze include the Cauldron of Souls itself :p

A Royal Assassin is more handy than a Dark Impostor when you don't want to keep 6 mana open every turn. He also doesn't grow bigger with every activation but he always threats a kill at instant speed if something dares to attack you without being vigilant :p

I would also consider the double damage enchantments to be removed as well, as they work against you as much as they do for you. Use the Curse of Bloodletting to incentivise people in more direct way. The dictate is good though because of flash...

Your maybeboard has some real gems! Especially fond of Martyr's Bond!

Also a Sunforger with 3 targets only is a very sad Sunforger... It's meant to be the answer-stick! Get that Chaos Warp, Oblation, Terminate, Mortify, Return to Dust, Into the Core, Retaliate, Wild Ricochet, Utter End and Anguished Unmaking... maybe even a Master Warcraft? That, or remove Sunforger since it won't be doing much for you as a +4/+0 buff.

Mistveil Plains !!!

Sunforger is an amazing card and I like how you have built a deck showcasing it. a few niche fun cards that fit under it:

Abeyance/Orim's Chant/Silence no explanation necessary!

Blood Oath great response to the ever common Creeping Renaissance

Comeuppance big reversal spell

Faith's Reward big recursion spell

Retaliate big board wipe

Bind/Lapse of Certainty/Mages' Contest a surprise counter is always useful.

What about Retaliate? Great with Gideon Jura
