Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

chosenone124 on Losing Double Strike

My opponent has a Sorin, Lord of Innistrad emblem and attacks with Adorned Pouncer. I block with my Ranging Raptors.

The first strike hits for 2 damage. If I use Sudden Spoiling before on my opponent, will the Adorned Pouncer still strike for normal strike and kill my Raptors?

I feel like a better use of white is Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle.

The fact is, between Legion Lieutenant, Stromkirk Captain and Captivating Vampire you're looking at getting a huge buff to your boardstate. You only need to swing with one guy to get the token. This means it saves your Mana for other uses later on.

Also, one of my favorite Sorins is Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. He grows your tribal board and his ult is super powerful.

Think of it this way; Against low creature decks, he gives you board advantage. Against tempo creature decks, he keeps you on par with blockers. And against heavy sets he let's you pick and choose their best for yourself. Alongside Captivating Vampire, he feeds tokens into your 5-tap control mechanic and later on just straight up steals them.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad lends itself more to the token plan you have, so essentially you would ask yourself if you are doing tokens or control, if you are going for more of the control route then Esper Charm over Sorin and even Thoughtseize which can just be surplus to requirements bar a tempo plan, and then if you are going tokens then Sorin is better and even Sorin, Solemn Visitor can be better for his synergy with Lingering Souls.

4x Esper Charm could be pretty cool mostly for the discard effect, but what would I take out? I guess I could go without Sorin, Lord of Innistrad but I do like the lifelink because this deck shells through life so quickly with all the fetches and shocks and also Thoughtseize.

I like it, looks fun!

I would swap Sorin, Solemn Visitor for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. You can stack the +1/0 emblems. Visitor works well enough, I think that Lord would just function a bit better.

I would also (possibly) swap Infinite Obliteration with Memoricide. It's a turn slower but less color intensive and the major upside is you can get any card. I would at least sideboard it so if you're playing against a less creature heavy deck it wouuld be more versatile.

Kabira Vindicator could be a good option

Always Watching could be a good enchantment for you.

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge seems really good with Final Parting

Kinsbaile Cavalier a better Silverblade Paladin for this deck

Finally Hero of Bladehold

With your mana base, add in at least one Godless Shrine to fetch up.

With boardwipes, you should be using plainswalkers as your win con. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is amazing, but if you're looking for a cheaper one, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar could work as well. If the addition of a shock land gets you to dangerous life totals, try Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. I've seen one or two Heart of Kiran being run alongside plainswalkers as well

I would get rid of one Search for Azcanta  Flip because more than one is a dead draw

hope this helps! +1

Vent is good because there's a lot of land in my meta. It's also good becuase I'm on 25 lands, not 24, and it's important my lands do something.

However, I'm running 3x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and 1x Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, so I'm a lot more likely than you to have a random emblem around making it bigger.

Side note: I like the Fulminators because they don't just come in against Storm; they come in against Jund and Affinity, because lots of our removal is sorcery speed and so we're very soft to Inkmoth and Ravine.
