Sorin, Grim Nemesis Discussion

Joe_Ken_ on Marchesa, Queen At Arms

multimedia I need to update the deck since I do have a few of the cards you are suggesting and I need to remove and swap some stuff out.

I would like to keep Sorin, Grim Nemesis in the deck since it has just won me a game before.

Archetype of Courage gives my creatures first strike which is more to combo with Queen Marchesa for deathtouch.

I keep Protector of the Crown in in case I need to get the monarchy back and because it combos really well with Hammer of Nazahn

I like Torment of Hailfire but I could see removing it since I’m not playing mono black and don’t have a crazy amount of mana ramp.

I’ve been meaning to put in my Luminarch Ascension , Windborn Muse , No Mercy , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and Enlightened Tutor . I also have a Containment Priest so I should probably put that in since it also goes good with Kaya, Ghost Assassin

I would like to hear your reasons for making some of the cuts you suggest.

Hey, I see why you're confused if you're going in the right direction because your deck is kind of all over the place. There's lots of good cards here, but I think you can reduce the themes and streamline the strategies.

Consider increasing the pillowfort theme? Increasing the token theme? Decreasing the combat themes (first strike), equipment theme and politics themes? In my opinion combining pillowfort and token strategies are the only themes you really need because both these themes require a lot of setup and they both strengthen each other. If you add other themes to these two all they will do is disrupt the ability to pillowfort.

Consider Luminarch Ascension ? It's a good win condition mana sink for pillowfort and token strategies. With three opponents it can activate fast. Windborn Muse is an upgrade for Baird, Steward of Argive . Consider Aura of Silence ? It's good opponent disruption making it more difficult for them to cast mana efficient artifacts and enchantments.

Other than Sun Titan you're not playing reanimation strategies. Consider Rest in Peace or Containment Priest ? Peace is more expensive price, but it affects everything. Consider Knight of the White Orchid ? It's a great card for land ramp in white especially since you're playing Plains Shock lands and Mistveil.

Depending on the budget of cards you want to add, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Ethersworn Canonist , Twilight Prophet and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are good here, but they're all expensive price. Elesh or Elspeth are an upgrade for Teysa. Both Elesh and Elspeth are very good finishers for tokens. Canonist shuts down some decks and Prophet in combination with a token strategy, getting the city's blessing fast, can give you lots of value.

Consider Kher Keep ? A repeatable way to make tokens that's a land; make a blocker at instant speed. Bitterblossom or the less expensive price, but much worse Dreadhorde Invasion are other good repeatable sources of token. Ophiomancer can be a repeatable source at each upkeep of a token that has deathtouch making it a good blocker on each of your opponent's turns.

Wrath of God as well Day of Judgment or the more expensive price Damnation or Toxic Deluge are cards to consider adding. Board wipes are good with pillowfort and the token strategies since tokens are being made from repeatable sources. Cursed Totem or the more expensive price Linvala, Keeper of Silence is opponent creature disruption since you're not relying on your creatures activated abilities only their ETB or static abilities.


Cards to consider cutting:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice about why I think these cards can be cut. Good luck with your deck.

I've got something similar in the works myself LOI is defo the best Sorin for vamp tribal. I used Anguished Unmaking for my signature spell myself mainly for flavor reason but also because having instant speed cheap removal for almost anything is nice. If you are sticking with 21 lands i would honestly remove all the 5cmc+ things that don't do much when they hit the battlefield. Personally i don't even have Sorin, Grim Nemesis mainly because the game should already be over or mostly over by the time you play him especially with 21 lands. Personally i would remove him as well as Defiant Bloodlord , Epicure of Blood and Necropolis Regent . You defo need to make room for Bloodghast , Bloodthrone Vampire , Blood Artist , Vampire Nighthawk and New Blood . I'm probably forgetting some others myself. Orzhov Signet as well if you face mana issues.

Oh okay! If you're having land/card advantage issues, some Jace might be a good fit. But other than that...any Planeswalkers that can heavily drive you to victory work. A few on the top of my head:

And lastly, of course I must suggest Doubling Season (budget permitting).

Diddle I had considered Crystalline Crawler but it seemed a little slow without Atraxa being the commander and proliferating regularly. I am board wiping a considerable amount so he probably wouldn't last long but I will test Sorin, Grim Nemesis though, he seems pretty playable. Thank you!

Sorin, Grim Nemesis Has always been very good in my Atraxa superfriends deck as both card draw and a win condition, and Crystalline Crawler helps a lot with ramp and fixing.
