Soul of New Phyrexia Discussion
1 day ago
Hey man, nothing to be sorry about at all! We definitely have good taste ;) I fully support replacing Magus of the Wheel with Wheel of Fortune. Just did the swap myself after selling my Wheel and replacing it with Magus a while back, but Wheel does its thing so much better that I couldn't resist getting it back. Wish I had Metalworker back too, he's a beast. How well does Chandra, Flamecaller do for you? I have one and have seen her in other lists, but I have to admit I'm a little pessimistic about what she can contribute. I suggest considering Soul of New Phyrexia and Oblivion Stone as well. I like to go for the Mycosynth Lattice/Darksteel Forge/Nevinyrral's Disk lockdown combo as my main win-con too, but you can theoretically achieve the same effect by replacing the Forge with Soul and the Disk with the Stone. I've had to do both before when I didn't have one of the main combo pieces, and I was glad I had them. Let me know if there's any suggestions/comments you have for my deck too. Would love feedback from a fellow Daretti player!

Capricious Efreet didn't do too well when I tested it in our group, even with it targeting Darksteel Plate for the one permanent that I have to target of mine. So I guess I'll use good old trusty Steel Hellkite. I also added in Treasonous Ogre and Eternity Vessel, those two work really well together for ramp in mono red. Also put in a Soul of New Phyrexia to help me survive a board wipe. Added in some more removal and color hate cards, Omen of Fire, Flashfires, Shattering Spree.

The main reason I don't want to run the Disk is because mono red doesn't recover well from mass board wipe effects. I'll be in top deck mode a lot of the time unless I have Mind's Eye out. It's the same reason why I don't run Perilous Vault, I just wouldn't be able to recover from it in time. I would have to run Soul of New Phyrexia and activate it at the same time.
An alternative plan that I've been considering, is running Burning Wish to go grab Calming Verse, I would just need to add a land that adds mana of any color. I'm a fan of Cascading Cataracts, it would give me more options for Burning Wish targets. I could go get Merciless Eviction for example.

Considering your description, I assume this is meant as a pillowfort deck. In case this is the case (lol), here are my recommendations:
- Aegis of the Gods; fantastic card to use until your Bruna/Gisela/Teeg combo hits the table.
- Grand Abolisher; an Abolisher a day, keeps the counterspells away.
- Linvala, Keeper of Silence; bit expensive but not as much as she used to be. No more activated abilities from enemy creatures.
- Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Soul of New Phyrexia; to protect everything on your board from targeted removal and destruction wipes.
- Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir; even worse than Grand Abolisher, now your opponents can't cast spells during their own upkeep or combat phases either. And as an added bonus, you can cast creatures anytime you want; even after your opponent has declared attackers!
- Melira, Sylvok Outcast; just in case your opponents like to use infect.
- Vigor; this is great in combat and even better against red damage spells that target multiple creatures.
- Sphere of Safety; great potential to be even nastier than Ghostly Prison.
- Leyline of Anticipation; almost as fun as Teferi.
- Crawlspace; very nice against token decks.
Whatever you decide to use, I sincerely hope you'll get of Entomb, Buried Alive and Jarad's Orders. First off, these cards are nice, but are better suited in a deck that's heavy on recursion. I'd replace them wih Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen or if you have the money, Demonic Tutor and/or Vampiric Tutor. Second, you're using Ground Seal; this seems very counter-productive.

Hey! Love big green decks :D The strategy is so simple and yet can be so complex when you get into the nitty gritty of how many creatures to play, when to attack and how you want to close out the game.
You asked for board-wipe insurance, and I have a few personal favorites.
Heroic Intervention is a new card, and has a lot of upside to it. Very cheap at 2 mana, and instant speed means you can save it for whenever you need to play it. Plus it gives Hexproof for a little added utility.
Whisperwood Elemental is an interesting way to go about saving yourself from wraths. It gives you a guy every turn, the downside being if you manifest an instant or sorcery you likely really wanted that in your hand and not on the battlefield as a vanilla 2/2. The upside being your lands become beaters late game.
And last but not least, Soul of New Phyrexia is also a great card. At 6 mana, its not really expensive in a mono green deck, it doesn't tap to do it, and you can even do it from the graveyard. On top of that it's got a big 6/6 body!

Thanks very much for your feedback! I think Pathrazer of Ulamog is going to be added due to its synergy with It That Betrays. I very rarely hard-cast in this deck, so I like your Artisan of Kozilek and Spellbreaker Behemoth suggestions, but I think I'll save these for another deck :) Especially Artisan of Kozilek; he would fit well in my Meren deck. Spellbreaker Behemoth might find its way into an idea for a Marath deck I've been brewing for a while.
Spearbreaker Behemoth and Siege Behemoth are both cards I do not own yet, but they could prove wonderful in this deck. I'd choose Spearbreaker Behemoth over Soul of New Phyrexia, because my opponents rarely let me keep more than three creatures at any one time on the battlefield anyway :)
If I had to choose cards to drop in favor of these three cards, I'd probably drop Engulfing Slagwurm (because it's nice, but not THAT nice), Karametra, God of Harvests (because I'm not hard-casting that much anyway and this deck has more than enough ramp as it is) and Asceticism (because I also have Privileged Position and Archetype of Endurance in here and both are a bit better anyway).

Love the idea of cheating out big creatures. I run a similar concept using kruphix as my commander.
Also might want to consider Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spearbreaker Behemoth, and especially Siege Behemoth which may end up winning you the game itself. Even Soul of New Phyrexia might work. All have synergy with creatures of 5+ power specifically.

I dont know about other saclands than the one you mentionned, but you could include something like Soul of New Phyrexia to make your stuff indestrutible before wiping the board.
