Spectral Procession Discussion
5 days ago
ellie-is: here is the update from today:
- Game1 Esper Control: Got good starts in both Matches
- Game2 AspiringSpikes Jeskai Wildfire:
-- Match 1: Mulligand to 5 with still 1 Land -> Conceded turn 3 to opponents Teferi, Time Raveler with only 1 Land myself
-- Match 2, the good case happened: Got 4 Birds out of Battle Screech Turn 4 and won Turn 6 with them :)
-- Match 3, the bad case happened: Got my board cleared with Supreme Verdict, played but was not able to flash back Battle Screech afterwards and then lost the game to Cryptic Command + Mystic Sanctuary + Jace, the Mind Sculptor :(
- Game3 Temur Taking Turns:
-- Match 1: Opponent was able to keep his head above the water with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath's Lifegain and Cryptic Command-Tap my Team. Did not draw any "Virtues" and lost to the combo with 13 1/1 creature tokens onboard
-- Match 2: Opponent got down a turn 1 Wrenn and Six due to Gemstone Caverns and was able to ping down my early tokens, played an Anger of the Gods turn 4, slowed me down with Jace, the Mind Sculptor & Chandra, Torch of Defiance and won with his combo turn 7
Conclusion: the games where overshadowed by my lack of sideboard cards against control and not by Battle Screech alone and I need more playtests, do you have any suggestions ?
The MonoW manabase felt a lot better than the Orzhov manabase indeed
I don't think that cutting on the 2-Drops is a good idea due to the low landcount and Windbrisk Heights coming into play tapped (sometimes turn 3) , it would be possible to run a split between Battle Screech, Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls.

You should give Battle Screech a try! In a deck like this you can always do the flashback cost as soon as you cast it, so it's 4 fliers for 4 mana, pretty much an additional and slightly costlier Spectral Procession. It's one of my favorite token cards.
Also, on Caves of Koilos vs Godless Shrine, you're definitely taking less damage from the Shrine most of the time, even with fetchlands (and unlike Caves of Koilos it can be fetched). Koilos is definitely easier on the pockets though.

Have you considered cheaper payoff cards like Speaker of the Heavens over Bloodthirsty Aerialist? Maybe Ranger of Eos or Ranger-Captain of Eos to tutor some of your many 1-cmc creatures. Also I would think going into BW would be for more controlly cards, since im not sure how good Banehound, Blood Scrivener and Bloodthirsty Aerialist are. If you want extra removal, you can add Fatal Push. For extra tokens besides Spectral Procession, theres Lingering Souls. And for more hand control you could add Tidehollow Sculler instead of Thoughtseizes (since you can curve out a turn 1 SS and a turn 2 sculler)

I have only used filter lands in B/W Tokens and Esper Control.
And Cryptic Command
I've found that a good rule of thumb is if you have 4x of any card with triple color cost, run 2.

Anyway, people in the comment section of my deck gave me some good suggestions that you could probably use too, take a look if you want.

Okay WOW I am behind on comments! I will try to make this quick, so I apologize if I sound rude or blunt!
ScionsStillLive tajic's protection is too niche.
martin3141 thanks! Wily Goblin seems neat, but I think Winota on turn 3 isn't a priority. I'd rather spend 2 mana to get two tokens, and then something else on turn 3, then finally play Winota. Spectral Procession = mana base problems. Creatures that leave behind tokens when dying would be a fantastic route to take Winota, if there were enough of them! Grim Initiate does seem particularly good as a one-drop. Don't like land destruction so no Raiders. My experience with Leave / Chance has been lukewarm at best. Thanks for the comment!
raspberryfish25 thank you! I had considered all the cards you mentioned but felt like I had better options. As for Fumigate over better board wipes... well I had one and didn't want to spend more money than I already was haha! Thanks for the comment!
jconeil1988 I have! I guess my problem with him is that at 4cmc he interrupts when I want to cast Winota. And only gives one token. I'd rather spend two mana for two tokens.
Sorry I had to rush through everyone! Thank you all SO much for the comments and suggestions, it does mean a lot to me!

Contract from Below (ummm... what?? this is too strong and the ante doesnt exist to balance it)
Ichorclaw Myr (colorless infect)
Sun Titan (probably fine)
Porcelain Legionnaire (cheap first strike, hard to kill in reasonable time without using removal spell on a 2 drop)
Winds of Abandon game ending 1 sided wrath (probably just too strong)
Mana Tithe fine card, but not sure why white has counter spells
Peregrine Drake probably fine, but just worth watching for overly easy infinites
Etherium Sculptor potentially too many artifact synergy cards like this in the cube (artifacts might be one of the most well supported archetypes)
Brain Freeze (not really supported?)
Snap again potential infinite mana
Feldon of the Third Path potentially degenerate?
Flameshadow Conjuring (goes infinite with multiple creatures with an iron myr)
Golgari Grave-Troll maybe fine
Sprout Swarm (I've seen this card be silly, but its probably fine)

How about 4 Heliod, Sun-Crowned instead of 4 Ritual of Rejuvenation? The ritual gains you only 4 life and draws you just one card. That is a pretty terrible rate and does not really impact the boardstate. Heliod, on the other hand can act as a creature and is really hard to kill. His static ability is super good and is a great pay off for all the life gain in your deck. The 1W ability to give lifelink to a creature is also very important, as it can giver, for example, your 5/5 ajani's pridemate lifelink and gain you some life while giving it a counter. Odric, Lunarch Marshal also doesn't seem very good as it can only give lifelink, flying and firststrike. I feel like maybe one or two might be good in the deck since its legendary and does cost a lot of mana. Lastly, Aerial Responder doesn't seem to be particularly good. Sure, it has flying, firstrike and lifelink, but it is still a 3 mana 2/3. Something like Spectral Procession seems much better. It synergizes very well with the soul sisters and gives you 3 1/1 fliers. Combined with heliod and a few of the soul sisters, Spectral Procession can sometimes make 3 2/2 or 3/3 or maybe even 4/4 fliers!
