Squee's Embrace Discussion
1 week ago
Hey Alvatariano. Wow it's been a while since I've seen a 60 card deck haha. I'm assuming the list is cards you already own, in which case it looks like a decent start. You have a lot going on here though and I think the deck would flow better if you focus on one particular strategy.
For example, you could do a dedicated aura strategy: Thran Golem, Brilliant Halo, Tragic Poet, Dawn Evangel, Tethmos High Priest, Squee's Embrace, Mesa Enchantress, Chained to the Rocks, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Hero of Iroas, Akroan Crusader, Phalanx Leader.
Or spellslinger style: Blaze Commando, Rile, Feather, the Redeemed, Reckless Rage, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Launch the Fleet, Guttersnipe, Twinflame, Ephemeral Shields, Fists of Flame, Charmbreaker Devils.
I buy single cards on tcgplayer.com since they're usually cheapest there. I've found you get more bang for your buck when buying singles rather than booster packs (even though packs are fun to open haha). For example you could get all of the cards mentioned above for about $7.

So I guess to make room for Heliod's Pilgrim , you would cut 2 Squee's Embrace and 2 Weight of Conscience . Drawing the pilgrim is the same as drawing one of those anyways. But you might want to trim something else.

I built a pretty similar deck recently and Squee's Embrace was pretty cool there. You can reuse your sacrificed creature or use it to pump your flier. Don't know if you're interested in making room for it here. To be fair, my deck doesn't have black for Kaya's Ghostform .

No. Tiana, Ship's Caretaker is put dies, which causes Squee's Embrace to trigger. Then state-based actions are checked and Squee's Embrace is put into it's owner's graveyard, note that Tiana is no longer on the battlefield to trigger. Then the trigger is finally out on the stack, and once it resolves Tiana will be back in your hand while Squee's Embrace will be stuck in your graveyard. From Gatherer:
4/27/2018 If an Aura you control is put into a graveyard immediately after Tiana leaves the battlefield, most likely because Tiana left the battlefield but the Aura was put into the graveyard as a state-based action after it found itself not attached to anything, Tiana's last ability wont trigger.

I find your lack of Rally the Peasants disturbing.
Boros Recruit might not look like much, but in an aggro list you're going to want 1-drops.
Squee's Embrace could be interesting to put on a creature to prevent getting 2-for-1'd.

+1 really liking the idea and the list has so much potential. A few suggestions:
Squee's Embrace a strong common that is on theme.
Debt of Loyalty unique old spell that's on theme
