Shalai, Voice of Plenty occurrence in decks from the last year

Shalai, Voice of Plenty Discussion

gavriel1136 on EDH Deck Pain and Gain

I myself have a Licia deck, so I have several things to suggest:

Right off the bat, Shalai, Voice of Plenty cannot be put into this deck, because of the Green mana symbols in her text, which is not in your Commander's color identity.

Second, you have a VERY high mana curve, not even counting your commander. Your land count is nice, and you should also consider more ramp in the deck. I recommend at least 10 pieces of ramp, though with a curve that skews so high over 4, you might want to consider closer to 15 or 20.

Next, if you plan on using cards to gain life, you need to consider the cost/benefit of it. Take Lightning Helix, for example. You spend 2 colored mana to gain you 3 life. That means, with just that card, you still need 2 colorless, 2 white, 2 red, and a black to play your commander. You only net 1 from that exchange. Consider Chaplain's Blessing, which only cost 1 white, and nets you 5 life. That's reducing the cost of your commander by 5. So with that card, all you need is 2 white, a red, and a black to cast Licia.

Considering how much you want to play Angels and Demons, would you consider Kaalia of the Vast? She is in the same colors and far more suited to cheating out big beaters.

Almighty Brushwag, Anointed Chorister, Knight of the Ebon Legion and Spectral Sailor are good 1 drops due to their solid abilities. At 2 mana you have Coralhelm Guide that can get all that damage through, too. Knight of Cliffhaven is a good mana sink for extra mana you don’t use, as well as Null Champion. Oran-Rief Invoker is a decent card in the invoker cycle. You’ve also got Dawnglare Invoker, Flamewave Invoker, Starlight Invoker, and Frostwind Invoker. For a top end card there’s Shalai, Voice of Plenty.

I’m going to make an assumption that you’d play bant. This lets you play Training Grounds, Biomancer's Familiar and Zirda, the Dawnwaker using some of the best and most aggressive 1 drop and 2 drop creatures. That’s what I would do anyway.

Angels are my favorite creatures in this game, so I naturally am fond of any deck that contains a great number of them.

However, is Shalai, Voice of Plenty crucial to this deck's strategy? If she is not, I would recommend that you instead have Sigarda, Host of Herons as the general and keep Shalai as one of the other 99 cards, because Sigarda is very difficult to destroy, especially if she is enchanted with Shield of the Oversoul.

I also would recommend replacing Darksteel Ingot with Chromatic Lantern and Selesnya Signet with Arcane Signet, unless your budget is limited.

Elsha of the Infinite seems decent.

Kykar, Wind's Fury seems like it might be okay, since it offers some mild protection.

Narset, Enlightened Master?

Shalai, Voice of Plenty?

These all seem okay but not really that great.

I would most likely cut Magmatic Force, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Karn Liberated.

3 damage to any target isn't bad, but bolting one thing at the beginning of every upkeep just isn't that big of an affect for the mana cost. Even hitting off of your commander's trigger, its a 6 mana 7/7 with no evasion. Using a ramp spell here would get you "free-casting" Eldrazi much sooner.

Along the same lines, Sigarda isn't much of a threat on her own. The body is fine... but again, your deck is full of nasty 6/6 + creatures and you'd rather have a chance at an eldrazi a turn earlier than have a flier with very limited protection capability. Even Shalai, Voice of Plenty provides a greater deal of protection for less mana (with a mana sink to boot).

Karn isnt a creature, and the whole goal of the deck is to spin the wheel and get creatures for cheap. Its a great card, but is a non-bo and limits your deck's ability (slightly, but still) to do what it wants to do efficiently. Running ramp here would start your engine much quicker, and help you get good board presence against those heavily aggressive opponents.

I run a Rhys deck as well, it's one of my favorites! Personally, I can say that Huatli, Radiant Champion is well worth it. The fact that you can ultimate her 9.5 times out of 10 on the second turn she is out, giving you that emblem for card draw is amazing, especially since the card draw is optional. I also run Sterling Grove which, apart from the enchantment protection, can function as a tutor to get our your token doubling enchantments. Illusionist's Bracers are also extremely useful I find. Lastly, if you're looking for a little more ramp, Marwyn, the Nuturer has been great for me, the fact that she also gets HUGE after a few turns is great! As far as things you could potentially cut to some room... maybe Avacyn, Angel of Hope could be replaced by Shalai, Voice of Plenty to reduce the mana cost. Fresh Meat personally never worked for me, I found it difficult to have that mana open and was never able to use it much. Zendikar Resurgent is great, but kinda spendy at 7 mana, I think you'd be ok removing it and relying on the mana dorks and mirari's wake etc.. Primeval Bounty could also potentially be cut as you have plenty of cheaper lifegain/token production options.
Here is my list if you're interested! 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens)

This are the staple cards you need to get.







I hope this helps because it took forever to type out.

Sadly, you need to get to 6 power for Sisay, since Sisay, Weatherlight Captain says 'costs less than' rather than 'equal to or less than.'

No worries, the use of Jegantha as a companion is it lets you get Sisay to 4 power on it's own, which allows the whole combo to occur with no extra pieces. Yes 11 mana is a ton, but 3-3-5 isn't too bad, when it's a 5 color, 0 card combo, you can work with anything in deck. Radha while not bad for the deck, will often be worse than other ramp pieces like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, or just normal ramp.

The actual legends in more competitive Sisay lists (according to lists I've seen) are Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Anafenza, the Foremost, Gaddock Teeg, Tymna the Weaver, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, Teferi, Time Raveler, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Kethis, the Hidden Hand, Dack Fayden, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, The Chain Veil, Umezawa's Jitte, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician/Najeela, the Blade-Blossom (and Samut, Voice of Dissent optionally for this combo).

Optionally (on EDHREC) Helm of the Host, Hammer of Nazahn, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, Saffi Eriksdotter, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Captain Sisay, Brago, King Eternal, Kunoros, Hound of Athreos, Ashiok, Dream Render/Narset, Parter of Veils/Teferi, Master of Time/Linvala, Keeper of Silence (non-Jegantha variations)

Sadly, while Radha seems okay? Tutoring it is really bad, since you could fetch value pieces like Wrenn and Six, or better ramp like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, and I doubt you need an extra green if you can cast Sisay and activate her, and she also already needs to have a 1 color legend out. If you are looking to use Radha for pumping Sisay, run more of the optional legends. Idk, I could be wrong but I don't see it being popular, I hope you have the best of luck with it, it seems pretty fun for the deck on terms of a flavor include!
