Specter's Shroud Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Cards that Retroactively Became More ...

I have been seeing a lot more hype generate around Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded for Oathbreaker. This seems like the format he as inevitably designed for as he allows you to burn through your library at a rapid pace while having both the consistency of being in the Command Zone and the tempo of costing merely . In fact, you can quite literally T1 him.

Actually, I'm seeing a LOT of cards find a new power curve in Oathbreaker.

Now I'm not entirely sure how viable he truly is, but if someone can find a way to force opponents to get cards in red, he can actually be quite a threat. It may seem silly to pair him up with The Rack , but if you also run Wheel of Fortune , Howling Mine , Dragon Mage , Memory Jar , etc you can ensure your opponent has the biggest hand size possible.

Then, throw down some crap like Disrupting Scepter , Specter's Shroud , Possessed Portal , etc to whittle their hand back down to 0.

It's an odd way to play, but it hits them from multiple angles:

  • Tibalt's -4
  • Wheel of Fortune 's damage
  • The Rack 's damage
  • Constantly disrupting their game plan because their cards are always rotating out
  • Possibly land-locking them if they keep dumping lands or keep drawing nothing but lands

No problem! Something i use as a budget Ensnaring Bridge effect is Silent Arbiter which would make Dreamstealer unblockable...maybe Specter's Shroud / Mask of Memory or somthing could be handy.

Quicksilver Fountain is another way to turn on islandwalk and slow down opponents' at the same time.

Being able to connect consistently with combat damage opens up some fun avenues to explore. Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa for card advantage; equipment like Sword of the Animist, Quietus Spike, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Mask of Memory, Prying Blade, Rogue's Gloves, Specter's Shroud, and Spellbinder all give different options depending on what you feel you need more of; and for redundancy Thassa, God of the Sea is clutch.

I cannot imagine merfolk do not engage with sea monsters and they would definitely give you some late-game push. Ones that spring to mind are Scourge of Fleets, Stormsurge Kraken, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, and Stormtide Leviathan.

In addition to your pillowfort pieces I would also consider AEtherize to bounce an attack and Equilibrium to bounce threats as you play your merfolk.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh could be potent with all of your sideways turning. To complement this fact and reinforce merfolk's weaknesses (aka aerial anything) vehicles could work. Smuggler's Copter comes readily to mind.

DespairFaction on Kalemne is the Best RW Voltron General.

Hey, long time Aurelia player here. Deck looks sweet, I just have a few questions for you. Do you find that you are getting good value from Sword of Light and Shadow? Your creature count seems a bit low, and ive had not great luck with Light and Shadow in low creature count decks. I noticed you're not running sunforger, I know its slow but its so ridiculously powerful if the game goes late. A card you must add is, Mask of Memory its literally the best card draw in boros. Some other things ive thought about in a deck like this are Specter's Shroud and Destructive Urge. Another thing too, I would probably add Balan, Wandering Knight to act as back up commander if Kalemne gets killed too many times. I like the bit of stax that you have going on, helps slow down the other powerful stuff going on. If I get some time (it might be a while) Id like to try this deck out on my channel.

Hello! Nice deck, nice idea. Especially when you use Waste Not. By the way why don't you include something like Sword of Feast and Famine or much cheaper Specter's Shroud?

Woah, Larceny too. And Specter's Shroud would def fit flavor-wise.
