Start / Finish Discussion

Start / Finish i thought this card was actually useful even thought about it in a modern aristocrats deck

i've thinking that maybe Hidden Stockpile and Start / Finish could be good token interactions, but that implies a third colorm and can make less consistent the deck.

Also maybe 2 Dusk / Dawn could be better than a Fumigate in sideboard.

This is an interesting aristocrat build you have here. Lots of good synergy from your card picks that I am not sure if I can suggest something that is much better then you have chosen. My only card concern would be Start / Finish, because I don't know how well it will function because of the mana cost and game pacing. Might want to use Never//Return as it starts with the control that can help with planeswalkers and gives you the token on the other half. Looks like it can be a fun deck to play. +1

first off, Cliffhaven Vampire reads "whenever you gain life" not "for each life you gain" ... so Blessed Alliance only triggers the vampire once. (so gain 4, they lose one) ..... which is good seeing as most lifegain in the deck seems to be individual gains of life (priest, zulaport etc)


The deck seems to want more tokens, so drop cards like:

Thraben Inspector clues are nice, but your deck wants to be faster, and make actual creature tokens

Oketra, more of a winmore card then anything else.

Liliana, well she might make the cut, but shes a bit slow if you wanna make tokens, and her -3 doesnt really have any good targets, and the + makes a zombie, but if thats the goal, there are better cards.

not sure if Start / Finish is worth it either, but its an okay card.

for cards like

Weaponcraft Enthusiast(3 bodies, maybe 5)

Yahenni, Undying Partisan(free sac triggers)

Sram's Expertise(3 bodies+other spell)

and cards like Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip and Oketra's Monument may be worth a look aswell.

also while having tokens makes cards like Bone Splinters viable, cards like Fatal Push and Never are going to be more powerful in most cases. (and kalitas is always a good sideboard card, does all the things your deck wants lifegain+tokens)

The original list from The Mana Source included 3 Start / Finish, but I'm a bit of a purist, so I stuck with just servos. Plus, it's sorcery speed removal. I have enough sac outlets that I don't need another.

The same goes for Abomination. Also, it takes the same slot as Sram's Expertise, and I can't do without that card. Abomination feels like it should be in this deck, but most of the lists I'm familiar with never play it. There are just better cards for what this deck wants to do.

What you think about Smothering Abomination and Start / Finish?

That's what Anguished Unmaking and Start / Finish (Finish) tend to be for, but you could replace some for bone splinters, for sure.

Sogatog on Swarm and Conquer V 2.0

I've been thinking about Start / Finish as a possible two-of in here. It's kind of a mediocre token maker, but it is instant speed, and having built in removal to use later seems like it could be pretty useful. Has anyone else tried it out?

Also, I didn't personally see anything else in Amonkhet that caught my eye, but I'm curious if anyone else is trying out any other new tech.
