Other cards in white that deal damage to you are rare, but some colorless cards exist for the job, here all of the ones that come to mind:

The white part of the Odyssey utility threshold lands: Nomad Stadium

Grand Coliseum and City of Brass

Mana Vault and Mana Crypt are even better than usual here!

Staff of Nin xDD to deal damage to you!

Ankh of Mishra would be amazing!

Off of that staff one I though of Blasting Station ... there is some infinite combo there, right?

Jinxed Idol might not be so jinxed after all!

Ancient Tomb is amazing as well.

That is all I have for that... now for some finishers once you have the life/token engine going!

Well of Lost Dreams / Mentor of the Meek ? They would do a fair amount of work in terms of drawing.

Felidar Sovereign / Archangel of Thune - normal lifegain shenanigans.

Jazal Goldmane / Cathars' Crusade / Coat of Arms / Mirror Entity / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - normal token shenanigans.

Anointed Procession for more fun?

Divine Visitation too...

Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar would be good value

Slate of Ancestry on that note.

That's all I got... other than random anthem effects like Dictate of Heliod , but that would be too weak IMO.

SP3CTR3_chelts on Need help with wolves

2 weeks ago

Had a look at your deck and I love it! mainly because of my love for wolves but still :)

I do think you need to up your lands(34-35). And you need some ramp playing cards like Kodama's Reach Skyshroud Claim ect are amazing!(6-9)

I think you have a split focus of wolves and general tokens. I think the deck would run a lot smoother if you run more token based strategies ( unfortunately this would involve loosing some wolves D: ).

Also more draw could help lots. if you stick with lots of creature spells cards like Beast Whisperer and Lurking Predators would give a significant card advantage! if not cards like Slate of Ancestry that will also trigger on tokens

and last comment is more removal Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares and a couple more instant speed fight cards will do wonders at stunting your opponents.

Kirtanian on The Locust God... of the QuickDraw

1 month ago

Took the paper deck out for its inaugural run. Handily won by chaining synergies together. Someone running a Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck put out a Teferi's Puzzle Box .

I went Puzzle Box into a 13 card draw netting 13 tokens and an Ashnod's Altar , then sacrificed 14 tokens to get the mana for an x=24 Stroke of Genius . Drew into Purphoros, God of the Forge and Slate of Ancestry .

Cast both, someone used a Cancel but I responded by discarding 2 islands to cast Foil , spells resolve so I sacrificed 2 tokens to activate Slate of Ancestry , then drew my 22 cards allowing Purphoros to deal 44 damage to each opponent. GG.

Whiskey-Magic on Radha - Tokens to Infinite Smash

1 month ago

Hey Natalbee

My list initially ran a Throne of the God-Pharaoh , I love it, but I found myself with like 20 creatures total and wanted to get that number back up towards 30, Throne was one of the cuts along the way.

I really like Slate of Ancestry , in the situations where it's good it's great, but for those times when I'm behind I think Endless Atlas is better for clawing back up. I can definitely see the argument for the other way though :)

Natalbee on Radha - Tokens to Infinite Smash

Man, this deck is solid. If I were to make Radha, this is exactly what it would look like...

What do you think about Slate of Ancestry , Soul of New Phyrexia or Throne of the God-Pharaoh ?
