Spirit Loop Discussion

ZendikariWol on Warrior at heart

5 days ago

Good cuts include Elvish Skysweeper, unless you have plenty of fliers in your meta. Disowned Ancestor: fine early game, and it would be hella good if outlast wasn't a sorcery, but alas. Graveblade Marauder is okay but it's generally lackluster (relies on your dudes dying). Herald of Dromoka and Dragonscale General cancel each other out. Petrified Wood-Kin is risky and Matsu-Tribe Sniper is just sorta lame. Spirit Loop really doesn't fit the theme of the deck.

Sorry I have to be salty here, just wanted to suggest some cuts. Also maybe drop the banners for signets (eg Boros Signet).

Yeah, it's tough!! Cutting cards and balancing the ratios between creatures, buffs, utility, and removal is a delicate art.

I generally start with the "8x8" method; choose 8 things you want in your deck and choose 8 cards that do each. You have a great start so I'm not saying to scrap what you have.

It's not perfect but it's a great place to start when building or redoing a deck. One thing to consider is a large chunk of one set of 8 will be ramp and ideally another set will be card draw, truly leaving only 48 cards. There is also the part where several groups of 8 will be "creatures" if you want an aggro deck (which this is sort of a hybrid) so some creatures will fall into a "buff/anthem" category or a "card draw" category or some sort of utility category, throwing some numbers off.

Brave the Sands is the shit.

Removal is slightly more important for aggro and voltron decks than midrange or control decks (you gotta get through!) but you have a good amount.

I generally find combat tricks less useful than constant buffs, so were it me I'd take out War Flare for one of the considered cards.

In my experience with Zurgo, evasion is more important than extra damage, so things like Battle Mastery and Mardu Runemark are less desirable than something like Spectra Ward, which makes a creature nearly unblockable and untargettable. Something like Spirit Loop would be better (and strictly better than Congregate, in my opinion) since you don't get two-for-one'd with it attached. Even with the voltron aspect being played down, Zurgo always has a huge target on his back.

Trample and flying, or something like Trailblazer's Boots help more than Fireshrieker or Inquisitor's Flail in my experience. The damage bonus is still super good though. A balance is good, is that I'm saying. Although perhaps not as much if the voltron aspect is less pronounced... YMMV. Also, Inquisitor's Flail is probably better than Hero's Blade. Conqueror's Flail is great too but a little pricey. I noticed you have a couple of random expensive cards--I assume they're ones you already own? Seems like a budget deck at heart. One thing that's hard about making a strategy like Warrior tribal work is it usually takes extra cash to make up for the inherent lack of synergy (unlike goblins and elves, etc.).

Have you seen Assault Suit? It's literally perfect for Zurgo. Keeps him indestructible on any turn and prevents him from being sacrificed. The damage bonus is nice and since he attacks four times a round instead of once it's almost like quadruple damage. I know you aren't doing a full voltron thing but it's so spicy and Zurgo is literally one of the only decks you can conceivably run it in.

Anyway, check out my Zurgo deck (Khanate of the Golden Headbutt (Artifact Voltron)) if you have the time! More of a traditional voltron deck though.

Spirit Loop will always come back to your hand, ensuring you always have something to sacrifice to Ertai. Just a thought.

Rogue's Gloves for draw maybe?

Angelic Accord with Pulse of the Fields/Spirit Loop for more angels?

First of all, you definitely want Lightning Greaves for this deck, whether it's to replace Swiftfoot Boots or not. Also, Wrath of God is objectively better than Day of Judgment, as well as not much more expensive. Ironclad Slayer would be a good addition for recursion (as is Mistveil Plains) and is probably better than having three shields which do the same thing; Kite Shield is redundant and could easily be replaced with a substantially better equipment, such as the aforementioned Greaves. Also, budget or not, you really want Enlightened Tutor to increase consistency even (Steelshaper's Gift is another good tutor option). If you are going to run so many Plains, you really want to have Endless Horizons in here so you can filter your deck and make it move even quicker than it already does. Of course, Land Tax also allows you to filter the deck a bit, and is probably worth every penny to get.

Other equipment to consider: Basilisk Collar, Godsend, Deathrender, Vorrac Battlehorns, Trepanation Blade, Armory of Iroas, Skullclamp, Quietus Spike, Darksteel Plate, Trailblazer's Boots, Moonsilver Spear, Infiltration Lens and Strata Scythe.

Other auras to consider: Angelic Destiny, Eldrazi Conscription, Armored Ascension (seriously, why are you not already running this one?), Felidar Umbra, Spirit Loop and Murder Investigation

Np, man. Tyvm for your appreciation. I have spent way, way too time on that deck, so its nice to see it inspire someone.

As for budget Land Tax, there really isn't another white card that works that way. Oath of Lieges comes close, but has a huge downside. However, there is a world championship deck version of Land Tax itself.

The world championship decks were a supplemental product Wizards made about 10 years ago. While not official magic cards, because they do not have the proper backs, in casual Magic they are perfectly fine- as long as your playgroup is okay with them. I use several in multiple edh decks, and no one has ever said anything but "those look cool!"

Should be able to grab one for 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a "real" copy, since world champ cards are not tournament legal.

As for No Mercy, Aurification is the closest thing i could find. Pestilence could be an option, if you have weenie/token players. Spirit Loop could neuter a single creature in a similar way to no mercy, i guess...

Here are my suggestions and some recommended removals to tighten the deck. Molten Primordial, Lifeline, Assault Suit, Recruiter of the Guard, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Infiltration Lens, 2x Plains (36 lands should be your minimum despite your mana rocks in order to consistently get to 4 lands by turn 4), Rage Nimbus, Master Warcraft, Nim Deathmantle, Thornbite Staff, Umbral Mantle, Helm of Possession, Anarchist, Illusionist's Bracers, Caged Sun, Gilded Lotus, Rugged Prairie, Iroas, God of Victory, Obsidian Battle-Axe, Mob Rule, Savage Beating, Adarkar Valkyrie, Karmic Guide

Suggestions to remove:

Clean up repetitious cards in sideboard and maybeboard that are in the deck. Best of luck, hope some of that is helpful.
