Hey just looking over this a little, and I like your take on Tolsimir! I see a few things I might change around/suggestions for your build.

Overwhelming Stampede is almost always going to be a better Overrun

Moonlight Hunt can easily be replaced by another easier kill spell. Such as maybe the new Generous Gift

Could consider running the new Nature's Chant too if you wanted? I'm not sure about it myself yet.

You have a lot of creatures that might not be as cohesive as you might like? For example Juniper Order Ranger looks good on the surface but at 5 mana he is often going to be worse than, say the Cathars' Crusade you have that won't be as easy to destroy. Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is another example I think. I cut these two for other alternatives like say Second Harvest or Wilt-Leaf Liege (gives static +2/+2 to some things and has a discard effect).

Some VERY important cards I found were Righteous Aura (gives incredible defense without seeming threatening), Tamiyo's Journal (some great draw/tutor and is helped by doubling season), Sterling Grove (some much needed enchantment protection, as well as a tutor), and ESPECIALLY Aura Shards (AMAZING removal card. You always go plus with it)

Take a look at my build as well, I would love more feedback! Wolf Friends Unite! Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves

becks16 - Thanks :D Yeah, I went more into the lifegain route after seeing the drawing power of Well of Lost Dreams haha, that card is ridiculous with Tolsimir.

Aura Shards and Mirari's Wake are definitely on my future list because they're just great cards in general, but a little pricey for me right now. Righteous Aura on the other hand is only $0.20 and cool as hell! I'm gonna playtest this deck a bit more and see if I can find a spot for it :D

Adaptive Automaton and Wilt-Leaf Liege are both good, but I think I'm all anthem-ed out :P I think I'm running 13 different boost effects? Some of them are mana-intensive, but still worthwile.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I love the deck. I just tried to build a Tolsimir deck myself and I see a lot of familiar faces! I see you went more for life-gain and I for token gen.

Some cards I think might do you well are Aura Shards , Righteous Aura , Mirari's Wake , and maybe some creatures like Adaptive Automaton and Wilt-Leaf Liege .

I'm curious what everyone thinks of Command the Dreadhorde . Seems like it could be a great play when combined with a fog-like effect, or with any of the bullet-proof combos like Solemnity + Delaying Shield / Phyrexian Unlife . That way you get a lot of value and take no damage / loss of life.

I'm still running those plus Solitary Confinement & Righteous Aura in my own version of this deck, so I'm really tempted to include it and see how it does.

Side Note: what would happen if I cast Command the Dreadhorde , and in response to that I cast Teferi's Protection ?

  • I'm assuming any permanents I have in play when Teferi's Protection resolves would phase out, as normal.
  • Then, I'd gain a bunch of new permanents from Command the Dreadhorde , and these would not phase out - they'd simply enter the battlefield under my control, and I would take zero damage.
  • Is there anything I'm missing with this interaction?

I was thinking cards like Cho-Manno's Blessing , Floating Shield , Pacifism , Temporal Isolation , Ward of Lights , and Righteous Aura . I'm not saying that they all deserve a spot but some are really good. Especially the ones with flash.

Solid build +1! Have you ever considered using Tarnished Citadel , Dream Tides or Righteous Aura ?

So big dumb creatures that land fast and hit hard is your problem?

I built a midrange-y deck, Divine Decree, that hides behind pillows and laughing as people die to Manabarbs.

You are dying around turn 5 though so anything costing more than 5 in my deck should probably be taken out for your purposes.

Focusing in on some of the pillows of best use to you would be:

Blind Obedience, Darksteel Plate, Gideon of the Trials, Glacial Chasm, Maze of Ith, Righteous Aura, Solitary Confinement, and Teferi's Protection.

You might avoid Ghostly Prison style effects depending on how your opponent's deck works since if he has all the mana then prison isn't really an issue for him.

If you would prefer to win before he goes off you might try something more akin to Mistress of Poisons which has 2 combos that can go off as early as turn 3. I never made the deck consistently able to win in that time frame so you would have to beef it up but the potential is there.

The better and cheaper option would be if we take a look at 2 or 3 decks you already have and we can maybe touch those up.
