Sorcerer's Wand Discussion

Saw your request for suggestions. My #1 is: increase evasion for your creatures. When you deal damage, you get to steal stuff, and stealing creatures is a fine way of dealing with creature decks... So you need to deal damage to the player, which means you need evasion. You can do it with creatures like Archetype of Imagination or Wonder (or Deepchannel Mentor which is more on theme), or with enchantments like Levitation , or artifacts/equipment ( Whispersilk Cloak et al).

Second suggestion is replace some of the weaker pirates/cards with pingers like Sorcerer's Wand and Quicksilver Dagger .

Last and least elegant idea: Rogues are on-theme (especially Merfolk rogues!), and are often unblockable. Play cards like Arcane Adaptation and Xenograft to make them pirates.

I love the combo. I just get the feeling that the number of creatures in your deck that do not focus on getting to win-con combos rather detract from your chances of winning. I see a serious lack of cards to protect your Sorcerer's Wand or Famished Paladin once they are on the field.

I will be working on an alternative version of this deck and hope to post it soon. We could then possibly form a small discussion group of people who play this endless combo, discuss options and test ideas. When our decks start to converge and look very similar we will hopefully have something competitive.

OK - very janky, but great fun. I just had to get in on the discussion here.

Early lifegain to keep Famished Paladin untapping and giving you some board presence before you get your combo going could come from Fountain of Renewal .

If you are going to play Fountain, why not Ajani's Pridemate for an extra win-con?

A second option to provide life-link to your Paladin seems like a must and Squire's Devotion seems to do the trick, but I would tend to go with 3 Devotion and 3 Sentinel's Mark .

I really feel the need for at least 9 spell counters in the deck.

All of the above changes rather cut down on the number of search cards that you can fit in, but so what? they will only get you to your win-con 1 or 2 turns earlier at best. I would go with Shimmer of Possibility as the only search card.

Siren Stormtamer with Adamant Will , or any other card that gives your Paladin indestructible for the turn seem like must-haves in the deck.

i think that I would replace Baffling End in your side-board with something like Sheltering Light .

That leaves Sorcerer's Wand , which creates your endless loop. We really need to concentrate on protecting the wand - hence the added counter-spells.

I tried a similar version of this Deck a few times now.

I really miss some kind of ramp, and either protection for Glissa to keep the recursion/card advantage going, or card draw. Mind Stone Hedron Archive and maybe Dreamstone Hedron can fill both ramp and draw slot each.

Playing something like Pilgrim's Eye over green ramp seems reasonable for a deck like this, but it technically isn't ramp. Try Wayfarer's Bauble instead.

Golden Guardian  Flip can fight your Commander without harming it, giving you a 2 colored mana Land.

I also recommend Unstable Obelisk if you kill creatures with it, you can recure it, and also fills a ramp slot. And it can solve other problems than creatures, too.

Glaring Spotlight opens your opponents creatures for removal. Also can finish/protect yours.

Vedalken Orrery Shimmer Myr really worth it!

Acorn Catapult seems bad, but once you get an opponent a Squirrel, you will have a target every turn for "free" recursion (just hit the squirrels if there are no other targets to kill)

Sorcerer's Wand Viridian Longbow with deathtouch on Glissa it's very efficient creature removal.

Cranial Plating Just try it. You can eqiup this at instant speed. Giving sometime +10 power or more :)

Lightning Greaves Swiftfoot Boots as said, protection is something really needed (in my meta)#

Hope of Ghirapur done lot's of work in every deck where I was able to get it back!

Verdurous Gearhulk Artifact, +1/+1 Counters. 5 Mana 8/8 Trample if nothing better to do.

Marionette Master I nearly always choose to put counters on him (fits your theme) making him a 4/6. So every artifact that "dies" sucks 4 life out of an opponent. Can semi-protect from artifact boardwipes, because it sometimes can kill an opponent.

Disciple of the Vault Little brother.

Of course Sol Ring etc. would work with that many artifacts, too. Maybe you can explain why you play few ramp spells and Draw stuff

Ancient Tomb

And I really don't know why people play Terramorphic Expanse Evolving Wilds in a two colored deck. Getting 2 cards out of 90+ others...not worth in my opinion. They are fixing but technically Mono Colored Taplands. Try Guildgates/Shocks/Normal Tapduals instead

Some games are hard with too much topdecking cause of missing draw/Glissa died too often But nontheless Great Deck and really a lot of fun to play :)

Sorcerer's Wand + Famished Paladin + (Insert lifegain granter here)= Infinite Life gain and drain.

saveen1 on vampire sorcerer infinite combo

It's an infinite damage combo.

  1. Equip Famished Paladin with Sorcerer's Wand .

  2. Give him lifelink with Squire's Devotion or On Serra's Wings (I actually found a better enchantment in the new ravnica allegiance set. It cost less, but only gives lifelink for one turn, which is all we need.)

  3. Paladin taps to deal 1 damage to opponent (the wand gives him the ability, but it is the paladin that does the damage.) With lifelink, he untaps. repeat, repeat, until the opponent is dead.

HeavyR on budget esper combo

So this deck wants to win as early as turn 6, but it may be better to wait till turn 7 to play the contract and hold up a negate for sweepers or enchantment removal. I believe you are in the right colors to fit another budget combo right now using Sorcerer's Wand , Famished Paladin and Mark of the Vampire for a turn 4 combo win.

Oh! I just noticed Sorcerer's Wand can't hit creatures, otherwise it would crush aggro often!
