Spirit Mantle Discussion
4 days ago
Hey, thanks for the reply and support! I will eventually use something like Distortion Strike, Slip Through Space, Artful Dodge or Spirit Mantle to make Yavimaya Enchantress unblockable. I just have to see what to sub out and how my first rounds with this deck go. I had very good results with the Selesnya version of this deck, but I feel this one has better synergy and reliability.
As with my other decks, I'll be constantly updating it every time I find a more successful way of doing things.
Thanks again for the comment!

I love the recommendations and most are things I have already been considering but Im going to play the deck a lot more before I make too many changes. I think I will however be swapping out 2 Unflinching Courage for Spirit Mantle and had planned on running Spider Umbra but my lgs didn't have any and i only had snake.
I have played the deck a few times against Death and Taxes and believe I'm 3-1. Adding in Celestial Flare and the other path after losing the first game. Overall I'm pleased with it and having a lot of fun!

I would tighten up the auras a bit. By far, the best effect is Spirit Mantle, so I would boost those for sure.
Other than that, it really comes down to testing. In the games you win, which cards are good, and which are meh? In the games you lose, what went wrong and what could help?
From first look, I'd want some more absolute answers in the sideboard (e.g. Rest in Peace, Creeping Corrosion, Circle of Protection: Red, etc..)

Looks like a neat take on Ephara! However, there a few cards that stand out to me as out of place. Westvale Abbey Flip can't be played because its back side is black. Counterbalance seems a bit weird with no topdeck manipulation. Knight Exemplar has only 4 other knights to buff. I'm not really a fan of auras in EDH, and even though flashing in Spirit Mantle to save a creature might be cute, I'm not sure if it's good enough to make the cut.
The deck feels a bit lacking in the ramp department. Solemn Simulacrum and Knight of the White Orchid fill this role while also supporting the etb subtheme. Azorius Signet and Coldsteel Heart are some other good mana rocks to consider.
Finally, some other cards that go very well with Ephara. Deputy of Acquittals and Voidmage Husher are some other humans that help you get more etb triggers. Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion, while not humans, are extremely powerful with Ephara, letting you draw every turn if you have enough mana. Faerie Artisans gives you lots of etb triggers, and also the etb/ltb effects of all the creatures you copy. In addition, you can flicker it to keep whatever token you currently control. Finally, Silumgar Sorcerer is a counterspell that triggers Ephara, and is even a human.
Hope this helps!

I'd check out Pauper decklists that are around. These have separate ban lists than Legacy. That means you get to build stronger versions of those decks if the only limits are the Legacy ban list and $25.
Cranial Plating is less expensive than Chromatic Star, for instance, but is soft-banned in Pauper because Cranial Plating was never printed at common. That means you can play a top-tier Pauper Affinity deck with stronger cards. That's not the case with every card in every Pauper deck, but it's probably what I'd look for.
MtG Goldfish has a bunch of Pauper decks with their prices listed. Stompy, Delver, and Burn are good starting points like others have said. I'm pretty sure you can play Boggles on less than $25 if you cut Utopia Sprawl. You could also add Spirit Mantle and Spirit Link. I'm not sure what you would play instead of Noble Hierarch or Deathrite Shaman.
To be honest, I'm not sure why your event isn't going to be just a Pauper tournament, rather than a $25 budget limit. It's something I'd bring up with the organizers that they should consider in the future. Pauper is a lot cheaper on paper anyway, due to printings.
You might also suggest Standard Pauper/Peasant where the only cards banned are rares and mythics. Or having a 75-card proxy Legacy event.
