Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

Lord.of.Innistrad thanks! I really appreciate the feedback. I'll provide my answers to your suggestions.

Master of Cruelties-My first reason for rejecting this card is the price tag. Second, people misread the card. Reviving him with Alesha means he is never declared as an attacker, meaning his trigger never initiates.

Timely Hordemate-e first thing I notice with this card is Alesha synergy. But I look closer and see 3 power on its own. I also realize that the trigger only goes off once. Tethmos High Priest beats this card value wise IMMENSELY.

Intrepid Hero-I can actually get behind this suggestion. Especially in commander, destroying a 4 or greater creature over, and over, and over again is priceless. My only issue is finding room in the deck...

Funny side note. Relating to your name, the card Sorin, Lord of Innistrad was in an older version of the deck.

Not a big fan of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Possibility Storm, or Blind Obedience Also, replacing Avalanche Riders with Fulminator Mage, if you can afford one, seems like a good idea.

with no budget, run it over Sorin, Lord of Innistrad unless you find it's housing people. I just don't see the creatures to justify it's use. He's a hard one to get away with in EDH honestly. You really need a horde to justify his use, since he won't live very long 9/10 while Liliana of the Veil certainly will

Why Sorin, Lord of Innistrad??? he is absoluty useless??

After some tries:

.) i absoluty recommend Garruk Wildspeaker

  • +1: mana is always needed !!! (so it works as a 2CMC->"Converted mana cost" Planeswalker)
  • -1: solid creature
  • -4: (can be actived turn 2 after summoning) = another win condition !!! Amazing DMG BOOST

.) 2 Wall of Omens instead of Disowned Ancestor

.) 2 times Forest (cut 1xOrzhov Guildgate)

Conclusion: Hold dem gates! Budget control

Thank you for the ideas. Considering planeswalkers, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad would fit a little better than Nissa in my opinion. As far as the removal is concerned, Anguished Unmaking does seem a better alternative to Oblivion Ring. Regarding the lands however, with an average CMC so low, I've yet to run into any trouble with mana. And yes, having a few basic lands would be nice, I just need to figure out what to swap them for.

TheRedGoat on Tokens?? What a Junk Deck

I had actually been thinking of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, but your still make a good point about the board wide lifelink being better than say one creature with lifelink. Still, I'd love to make my own version of a list like this one. I'll have to get back to you on that.

Ubervores on Mardu Midrange-Tournament Ready? HELP

I would suggest two more commands in the sideboard maybe a Thoughtseize or two for things like tron. I personally would turn the soulfires into another mentor and another kalitas. I think solemn visitor should be a second liliana last hope or alternatively switch to Sorin, Lord of Innistrad because he makes creatures and pumps more efficiently (visitor's ult is probably the better but in modern its unlikely that either will be particularly relevant.)

First of all interesting deck! I hope it gets more attention around the site, as most people see mardu as just mardu nahiri decks and don't look at other ways of building the deck. I have some suggestions that are both very budget friendly and would improve a lot of your matchups against decks currently in the modern meta.

  1. Cut a Night's Whisper and a Gurmag Angler and mainboard 2x Anger of the Gods the reason for this is because dredge and infect are very weak to this card, and is extremely good against the current modern meta that is centered towards aggro decks.

  2. Cut the swiftspears and Soulfire Grand Master in favor of either more tokens like Timely Reinforcements and Mardu Charm and some planeswalkers. Such planeswalkers can inlclude Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Chandra, Pyromaster, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad The reason I say this is because the tokens allow you to play around the most popular decks in the format that can get around cards like Butcher or kill it (ex. Jund/Junk). Hero of Bladehold is another possibility for this.

  3. I can tell that your mana base is budget, but I think you need to make some considerations here, Clifftop Retreat, Foreboding Ruins, and Dragonskull Summit are all great cards, but require you to be playing a mana base of shocks to support them, since you need the quality of the basic lands, which you only play 3 of. I'd cut these for either more fastlands or painlands like Sulfurous Springs.

  4. In the sideboard I'd consider playing Slaughter Games over maybe anger and maybe a sin protector or something, as it lets you take out combo deck pieces without worry.

  5. I'd cut gurmag angler for planeswalkers/ more tokens as you need to wait a while to cast it since you don't have a lot of graveyard filling.
