Ragamander on Bant Pod, The Sequel: The Mighty Ducks Return

1 week ago

I like the subtle changes I'm seeing in the maindeck. I'd personally go -1 Mirror Image +1 Knight of Autumn , primarily to make sure you don't flood yourself with clones with nothing to use them on. Three clones should be enough to generate overwhelming value in this deck. I also might go -1 Meteor Golem +1 Pelakka Wurm ; the seven life, game-dominating body, and card-on-death are probably going to be better against most everything except Teferi. I also really want to find room for Biogenic Ooze in this deck, since Militia Bugler can pull it, much like Trostani Discordant . I don't know if it's better than Mesmerizing Benthid , though, so I'm not sure how it would fit.

Your sideboard looks pretty good. Vannifar decks are likely to out-grind the popular BGu Value decks, so you probably don't need much in your sideboard for those matches. If you can fit in a single The Immortal Sun , that might be worthwhile. I was going to suggest Shield Mare if it hadn't made it in; it's perfect for what this deck wants to be doing against aggro (especially MonoRed). Kraul Harpooner is also an excellent choice to keep you in the game against UR Drakes and MonoBlue. Incubation / Incongruity is nice emergency removal against giant flying creatures and helps dig for other sideboard answers otherwise, so it's reasonable, though I'd take the opportunity to go -1 Incubation / Incongruity +1 The Immortal Sun just for the occasional free wins.

Here are my two highest-priority suggested changes:
-3 Make a Stand ; +3 Negate
-3 Reclamation Sage ; +1 Lyra Dawnbringer , +2 Tithe Taker

Negate beats every spell that Make a Stand beats and more: Seal Away , Ixalan's Binding , Vraska's Contempt , Teferi, and most importantly Settle the Wreckage and Find / Finality . You lose the ability to swing creature combat in your favor, but in general you're favored during board stalls anyways. Negate will help you beat Wilderness Reclamation decks, burn decks, and Gates decks as well.

With seven copies between Knight of Autumn and Mirror Image , you've got plenty of maindeck ability to deal with Wilderness Reclamation , Experimental Frenzy , and Guild Summit ; additional artifact/enchantment removal is unnecessary (especially if Negate is in the board too). Rather, it might be better to have access to the swingiest white creature in the format - Lyra Dawnbringer - against aggro decks and Tithe Taker to harass and pressure decks that want to operate on your turn. Honestly, I'd rather see Tithe Taker in the main, but it's a fine sideboard card too. Other options in that open 2x slot are Seal Away as hard removal and Warrant / Warden as a flexible answer/threat.

Vivien Reid is also usually present in green lists somewhere in the 75. I'm not sure she's necessary here, but it's a card to always remember. Another card you have access to is Entrancing Melody , which is great for stealing Hydroid Krasis and is effectively a removal spell that also gives you pod fodder. River's Rebuke and Settle the Wreckage are also available in your colors and can be potential blowouts. Just options to keep in mind.

Finally, looking back over the list, you may actually need more mana sources than 23 lands + 4 Incubation Druid . 23 lands means that you're only 58% likely to make your fourth land drop on your fourth turn. If you're missing Incubation Druid and Prime Speaker Vannifar (or if they die), you can struggle to make it to your heavy hitters. Most Vannifar lists I've seen have roughly the same curve as your deck and are running 23-24 lands + 8-13 mana dorks. Not that this is necessarily correct, but the lists appeared to be performing well with that combination.

Bounce is a strength of blue.

Cyclonic Rift , River's Rebuke , Expel from Orazca

The Cryptolith Rite , Surgespanner and Kiora's Follower combo is a must.

You should remove Infect creatures.

You have a good point. I might need to run a counterspell package, after all.

So far I plan following:

To be removed:

To be added:

And Gyre Engineer is questionably to be swapped with Incubation Druid , since latter can be pumped to give 3 mana and become 3/5 to survive small wipes.

What do you think? I definetely need to clear some space, but right now I am not sure what to remove. So this is what I have: Counterspells:

Only 4 counterspells in 100-card deck... I am really not sure. Maybe Mystic Snake or Frilled Mystic would be better? Boardwipes: Other stuff

I don't run tutors not because they are expensive (Though Wordly Tutor, Gamble and Mystic Tutor are fairly affordable as an upgrade), I don't want to make deck too (uhh) strong. I made Lavinia, Azorius Renegade deck which revolves around getting Knowledge Pool out, and if I draw one of the artifact tutors and have anti-counter in hand, I win, it's only a matter of time. Which is nice to spook new players, but not that great when I play N'th game with same people.

I'd suggest taking out the black cards, and making it Blue/Green. Add 2 more Simic Ascendancy and replace Vraska's Contempt and Cast Down with blue removal/counter spells instead like Cancel , Blink of an Eye , River's Rebuke or Selective Snare and/or green fight spells like Pounce or Rabid Bite
