Skyward Eye Prophets Discussion
4 months ago
I am now testing Verity Circle and it usually range from ok to great ( I was able to draw my deck as some one did a Kiki/Zealous combo) and found/cast an instant speed board wipe to steal the win!
Guardian Project is great also but rely on having a sac engine available to really shine.
I have tested Kefnet the Mindful but it is just not good enough compare to Thrasios. ( he is never a creature for me, at least the triton can attack on an empty board for a trigger. )
I have tested Evolutionary Leap as a sac outlet for derevi and it is not bad but would be better if the activation cost was free.
I have tested Pride Sovereign as another token generator, he is good indeed, but he do not survive creature board wipe, so I had to cut it.
Skyward Eye Prophets effect is insane, but yes, 6 mana for a creature 3/3 with no evasion that do nothing for a turn, I had to cut him.

Hi mate, have you tested the following cards:
Kefnet the Mindful as a second thrasios effect.
Evolutionary Leap as a sac outlet for derevi and provides card advantage when repeatedly saccing derevi or tokens to it.
Pride Sovereign as another token generator
How have you been finding Skyward Eye Prophets ? The effect seems quite strong but at 6 mana and needing to wait a turn before activating is it too much investment?

This is fantastic. I'm so happy you made this. I also have some suggestions for good 3+ color spells:
- Crackling Doom
- Knotvine Mystic
- Fiery Justice
- Guided Passage
- Trap Essence
- Violent Ultimatum
- Punish Ignorance
- Siege Rhino
- Giltspire Avenger
- Skyward Eye Prophets
- Jodah, Archmage Eternal (in place of Fist of Suns)
and finally, Urza, Academy Headmaster. :)
You have a great deck here. I'll probably make some minor changes and pick it up for myself.

Looks like a lot of good improvements have been made! I do have a few suggestions for you to mull over though, if you're looking for advice. I'm just gonna go right down the list of who to drop and why in my opinion.
Heliod, God of the Sun seems ripe for the cutting as well. If you're bent on having vigilance (which isn't mandatory, if you don't let anyone else have any creatures to begin with), then I'd suggest going with Brave the Sands.
Scavenging Ooze is taking up a slot that could be used by either Relic of Progenitus or Rest in Peace. The counters and lifegain is nice, but not if you're having to pour mana into it, especially if mana is going to be scarce.
Spawnwrithe should go in some clone deck somewhere else far away from here. Unless you've got a way to crank out a bazillion of them a turn a la Doubling Season and Parallel Lives, the cost won't be worth the benefit.
So I noticed you've got a lot of effects that make your opponents' stuff come in tapped. I see that your deck is also focused around stopping your meta's combos, so if that's entirely necessary, then by all means, leave them in. But in my opinion, having Loxodon Gatekeeper, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Blind Obedience, and Frozen AEther seems a little excessive.
Wood Elves could be cut for something more versatile. The Skyward Eye Prophets are a couple of fun-lookin' dudes who have always performed well in my decks, but there are many others that could be used. If you're going for mana ramp, Kodama's Reach and the like are always handy. Walking Atlas is also useful, especially with Derevi, Empyrial Tactician's ability.
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard is a card I'm on the fence about, but he seems like he has really limited usage in your deck. Most of your creatures are between two and four mana, so you get a few uses out of him and that's it. Not worth it, in my opinion. A Worldly Tutor or Eladamri's Call used repeatedly with an Eternal Witness/Sun Titan combo seems a little better, if you're digging for critters.
Bonds of Mortality seems like it could be dropped, since you've already got Arcane Lighthouse. But again, if you're not letting them have any creatures to begin with, it shouldn't be much of an issue.
Luminarch Ascension seems like another card you might want to drop. It paints a pretty huge target on you. 4/4 angels don't seem worth it for becoming that much of a target. If you're trying to make creatures in a hurry, Avenger of Zendikar does wonders.
As for your Maybeboard: Naw. You don't need 'em.
I really like the improvements you've made to your deck! Looks like you're definitely going in the right direction. Two last sort of general suggestions I would make are to perhaps add more card draw in for you. Something along the lines of Coastal Piracy would be a good card to back up your Bident of Thassa. Lastly, more effects to lock the board down. Throw in a Gaddock Teeg to really ruin someone's day. Nobody expects a turn two Green Sun's Zenith into a surprise Gaddock Teeg.
Overall, I like the direction the deck is going in. Looks like it'd be fun to play.
Let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions!
Thanks for sharing!
