Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

No Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor? They both seem to match strategy and colors of the deck. Vault of the Archangel might also be useful as a 1-of.

I love this deck, but... no Ghostly Prison? No Starfield of Nyx? Let's go full-on enchantress on this bitch. Curse of Misfortunes is monstrous, especially when paired with Overwhelming Splendor. Sigil of the Empty Throne is a beast in enchantments, too. Worth considering is Daxos the Returned but he's not fantastic. Great blocker generator.

Good removal can be Doom Blade, Ultimate Price, Sudden Demise is good vs. blue, Divine Reckoning, Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act, Fumigate. All great with little-to-no creatures. Lightning Helix is also neat.

This one's more optional, but Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is good life gain, gives you a few good blockers. And if you're running Exquisite Blood you might as well have Sanguine Bond up your sleeve to go infinite.

Magister of Worth is a gamble, since you'll probably have few cards in the grave. Also, no rocks? That's up to you, I guess. I appreciate the flavor of Triskaidekaphobia but it's really not good.

This deck is awesome, super cool and fun. I love the flavor of it, the functionality, and the fact that group hug comes in black.

Skyblade of the Legion is ridiculously inferior to Dark Impostor. I would strongly suggest putting him in. Also Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, maybe Stensia Masquerade, Exquisite Blood also combos with Sanguine Bond, also Coat of Arms is ridiculous in any tribal deck.

Big card dump there, and I think I'm gonna build my own vamp deck.

entheogeneral on my first super friend deck

1 week ago

I'm not a nice person but I want more people to be dicks to eachother by playing Superfriends. It really depends on your price range. I always find that blue and blue-multicolored really works for 'walkers, like Venser, the Sojourner, Tezzeret the Seeker ,Jace, Architect of Thought, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Narset Transcendent. Good blue support cards: Deepglow Skate, Cyclonic Rift, Thrummingbird,Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

As for green and greenish planeswalkers: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Steward of Elements, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, maybe either Kiora, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Unyielding and Vengeant (the ones you already have), Xenagos, the Reveler, Vraska the Unseen, Sarkhan Vol, Garruk Relentless  Flip, Samut, the Tested, Oath of Nissa, and Primal Vigor.

As for White: Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura, Ajani Steadfast, any Elspeth, Oath of Gideon, Djeru, With Eyes Open and the other non-planeswalker white spells (which you seem to have covered), and Nahiri, the Harbinger.

As for Red: none of them. Fuck red. All the Chandras but the new one don't appeal to me and you should only splash red.

And last (but certainly not least); BLACK: Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Kaya (if you wanna be bitchy), Sarkhan the Mad, Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess and Liliana, Death's Majesty, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Oath of Liliana, and that one black removel spell that proliferates.

And as for three colors and colorless: Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Rings of Brighthearth, Contagion Engine, and maybe even Throne of Geth.

Sorry for how unorganized this is, don't give none. Good luck on pissing all your friends off until they get sick of you then you sell all the 'walkers and buy Eldrazi Tribal and they don't invite you to parties 'n all... And about your deck, my advice would be too follow the above suggestions and try to lower the mana-curve.

Snap157 on Stall Till Time is Called *Competitive*

Okay, lets see what you've got. I like the idea of stalling, but I think that there are better ways to do it. I think what you are missing here is a true win con and true control.

First, with only about 9 mana producing lands, Emrakul is a waste of space. I'd sell her off and use the cash to buy these other cards:

Pillow fort cards will not save you. If the opponent has a 7/7 Death's Shadow out, it's better to fix the problem with a Fatal Push than to stall with a Holy Day.

I like the inclusion of Thoughtseize, but I would add in 2 or 3 Inquisition of Kozilek in addition.

Cantrips like Opt and Serum Visions are your best friends. They gain you advantage and help you dig for answers to what your opponents throw at you. I would add 7 copies of these two in the combination of your choice.

As I said before, I like the idea of stalling for a win but I'm not sure Norn's Annex is your best choice for a slow win. If they play any lifegain or white deck, it's gonna be a tough game. Personally, I think that plainswalkers are your best choice for a more reliable win. Some great options include Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Gideon of the Trials, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

In order to really control the board before you can drop a walker, I would drop the damage preventing spells, Rest for the Weary, and Noxious Revival in favor of Fatal Push, a Mana Leak or two, Snapcaster Mage, 1 copy of Murderous Cut and one copy of Tasigur, the Golden Fang.

In modern, The goal is to lock down by turn 4. By then, you need to either gain board state or recover quick. Waiting for your opponents to make a move usually results in them doing something you can't control. Best of luck!

Tethys on B/W Tokens (SF/LOTV Build)

Thanks Cafelattis! If you're making a B/W Tokens control core similar to my build but want to skip the Liliana of the Veils, an easy change that would still be very effective would be swapping them for a second Collective Brutality and one mainboard Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Even with the revised planeswalker rules, Gideon is generally superior to Sorin, Lord of Innistrad in my experience.

Good luck with your build!

Super cool deck, i have a bw tokens deck that i am currently upgrading for competitive play and i am taking a lot from your deck. Just got 3 Bitterblossom and i am itching to try them out, still need to get some Thoughtseize and adding some more Path to Exile and Fatal Push, will probably skip Liliana of the Veil since she is so damn expensive, might try out Sorin, Lord of Innistrad instead. Either way great deck.
