Royal Decree Discussion

Shyachi33 on Andy's Eight-and-a-Half-Tails deck

3 months ago

hi, just watched the Legendary Creature Podcast and as someone that loves mono white AND Eight-and-a-Half Tails, i'd like to put some input in the deck.

first of all, i would cut ALL of the unsynergistic "lose-less" cards like: Dawn Elemental , Blinding Angel , Guardian of the Gateless , Palisade Giant , Platinum Angel , Selfless Squire , Ghostly Prison , Pariah , and Gideon of the Trials . none of these cards advance your game state, or put you closer to a win. If anything these cards only help you durdle around, hoping you can squeeze out a cheeky win. you already run the 3 circle of protection cards that will more or less synergistically do most of that already, and you can also add Idyllic Tutor as redundancy. i would probably replace the lose-less cards for more hatebears, like Aven Mindcensor , Angel of Jubilation , and Containment Priest . you're also running only 2 creatures with an etb effects, so cards like Torpor Orb and Hushwing Gryff can be very back breaking against other more creature based decks.

if you want commander damage to be your wincon, you should run bigger "bombs" or equipments/auras like Eldrazi Conscription and/or Blackblade Reforged on top of the strata scythe and umezawa's jitte.

snow-covered plains are cheap right now. so possibly investing in Extraplanar Lens (which unfortunately isn't cheap) might be something worth while for the deck.

Scuttlemutt is a cute ramp piece that can also paint creatures white. Cloudchaser Kestrel has an etb effect AND can paint things white also

i noticed you ran Steelshaper's Gift in the video, but it's not in your current list. need an update? if you don't already have it, Open the Armory is also a good way to look for those voltron pieces.

you only have 6 cards in your entire deck that can shuffle your making Sensei's Divining Top mostly a waste of time, at that point Crystal Ball would do you better as you can scry away "bad" cards at the top of your library, unlike SDT. if you add the 5 fetchlands, and more tutors then you can reconsider it.

Now onto more spicy tech. Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and All Is Dust both have great synergy with 8.5 since you can paint other people's lands and artifacts white.

adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in the deck can make temple of the false god and maze of ith tap for mana, BUT it also allows you to run some extra spicy cards like Karma and Royal Decree which, with any of the circle of protection cards, for 1 mana you can make it 1 sided.

Illumination a solid counterspell that people won't see coming, and you can stop gross cards like omniscience, and mind over matter.

Renounce the Guilds is also a great way to kill everyone's non-mono color deck commanders.

not sure of the timing of the filming, but Smothering Tithe and Generous Gift should both be auto includes in every white deck.

if you are able to get your hands on the fetchlands, Brought Back can be a really good include, along with Lotus Field .

Cavalier of Dawn is also a strong include.

end notes: try to keep your deck as low to the ground as possible, with a very low mana curve, you want to play cards but also keep as much mana open to do any of your 8.5 shinanigans. if you spend 6+ mana on a spell on your man phase, it really limits what you can and cant do on other people's turns, which you want to mainly be doing with a commander like 8.5 that screams CONTROL.

Nice flavor! +1

Most Darien lists use the combo Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Karma/Royal Decree + Soul Sisters/life-gain effects to make a massive army to beat in with.

I'm sure you could come up with some flavor to include them for an additional win-con.

With more and more punisher decks popping up in my play group to make the games go faster, so I've decided to make a deck that thrives off of them and can take the pain that they are dishing out and make something good out of it. A cool combo is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Karma/Royal Decree with a soul sister out. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/punish-me-more-daddy/ what do you think could make it better?

Sasnyper on Darien, King of Kjeldor

If you want you could throw in an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Karma or Royal Decree for extra damage on upkeep for you and everyone else. Take a look at Angel's Trumpet for even more damage and to punish people for creating large amounts of tokens and not being able to swing with them. Here is my list if you want to check it out. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/darien-the-maschosist/
