Seaside Citadel Discussion

Panzerforge on Budget Hive

1 month ago

Worth noting that this is more the "Budget Primer" for my deck now, as the physical deck has added:

Domri Rade (instead of Heartstone)
Conqueror's Flail (instead of 1x Swamp)
Arcane Sanctum
Savage Lands
Seaside Citadel
(instead of the Vivid lands)

It flows a bit smoother with those changes.

Shard Convergence- worth it? maybe a Cultivate instead

Darksteel Ingot swap with Chromatic Lantern or Coalition Relic

Lands could use a big update, and it dosen't need to be expensiveall the taplands (guildgates and gain 1 life lands) could be replaced with the tri lands from alara blockArcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Jungle Shrine, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel, and Exotic OrchardReflecting Pool is a better Rupture Spireyou could throw in a couple colorless utility lands and have you filter lands color fix you when needed. maybe add Vault of the Archangel, Reliquary Tower, Temple of the False God, Winding Canyons

Lurking Predators and Munda, Ambush Leader seem like best friends!

Captain's Claws makes ally tokens

Jwari Shapeshifter is the clone you want!

creatures that don't seem strong enoughGoblin Freerunner, Drana's Chosen, Drana's Emissary, Jori En, Ruin Diver (Not even an ally!), Zulaport Chainmage,

ally's you could addAkoum Battlesinger, Bala Ged Thief, Bojuka Brigand, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Grovetender Druids, Hada Freeblade, Halimar Excavator, Harabaz Druid, Highland Berserker, Kalastria Healer, Kor Entanglers, Makindi Patrol (change for Joraga Bard), Murasa Pyromancer, Oran-Rief Survivalist, Reckless Bushwhacker, Tuktuk Scrapper

you could swap Marshal's Anthem for Patriarch's Bidding

also add Harsh Mercy

maybe cut the Overwhelming Stampede

vbfabled on Flicker Counter Revolt

I like this deck! I wish more people would build casual decks, rather than $300 competitive ones.

A few suggestions I think may help you out:

Some good flicker/blink cards to consider are Momentary Blink and Eerie Interlude.

You should also consider including more planeswalkers if you're running things like Ajani's Comrade and Oath of Nissa. Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Ajani Unyielding seem particularly good for this deck, although they're all a bit pricey, so I'd get if you didn't want them.

I'd also consider Oath of Ajani in here.

I also might take out some of the unblockable guys you have for some more revolt stuff, like Greenwheel Liberator, Call for Unity, and Deadeye Harpooner.

Also, instead of Transguild Promenade, I'd just run some Seaside Citadels.

Call for Unity is another option for anthem effects especially since you're blinking so much. I don't think you need to waste money on shocks and fetches. They help, but in a 99 card format, they usually aren't worth the expense. I would get the tri-land (Seaside Citadel) and maybe some of the pain lands(or other things that can tap for colorless). As it stands, you're going to have a rough time activating Eldrazi Displacer. Other than that, there are some upgrades you could use in your spells like Bant Charm is better than Treva's Charm and there are other flicker effects like Flickerwisp that you can put in.

HybridPK on Don't Rafiq Me

2 months ago

Alright, I gave the deck a look through. I think I understand what you want to do with it, but I also think that you're trying to play Rafiq in an inefficient manner. Based on my interpretation, he isn't meant to be played in a way that prevents other players from doing things. He should be played in a way that prevents other players from doing anything to your board.

With that in mind, I think the best course of action would be to go full voltron. Of course, I have a bias towards aggro and voltron strategies in general, but you have a surprising number of options available to make this a great aggro deck, and there are multiple forms of protection available in Bant aside from just counterspells.

Something you're completely ignoring is the Exalted keyword. Exalted is a triggered ability, so each instance of Exalted stacks. You mentioned to me that you didn't want to necessarily rely on enchantments and artifacts to pump Rafiq. Fortunately, you don't. You just want to retool your creatures a bit so that you get more Exalted triggers, and find some other utility creatures that offer protection.

Any card suggestions I make in this post are going to sway the deck in favor of this strategy, which I understand is against your original vision of a control deck. Also, this does make it play like every other Rafiq deck. But, in my opinion, this deck (in its current state) looks like a bunch of cards put together with no real strategy in mind. Almost all of your control elements would be better off in the Grand Arbiter Augustin IV deck, or would be better suited for Derevi, Empyrial Tactician.

Some items to consider: you are only running 1 board wipe. I would at least consider having 3 in any EDH deck. Also, your mana base (33 lands, 5 dorks, 4 rocks) seems low overall. Since you have limited options to ramp for lands outside of playing multiple lands a turn (which is based on the number of lands in hand), and with how easily removed creatures are, I don't think you'll have enough mana to do things when you really want to. You are also only running 2 targeted removal spells, and they are for creatures. You have no way of dealing with artifacts or enchantments on the board, and you're playing with at least two colors that are good with dealing with those kinds of permanents. There also seems to be a curious amount of creature-searching, but none of the creatures you have seem game-changing enough to where I see a reason to search for creatures. I mean, sure, Linvala, Keeper of Silence can ruin someone's day, but there should be more than 1-3 creatures worth searching for.
