Stasis Snare Discussion
1 day ago
I test this against a few different decks.
I found waste + mirror pool hurt me and didn't see worth any use.
Also the lack of evasion meant removal stopped some of the board presence I wanted. I never used Ajani with any purpose either.
Stasis Snare dealt with any creature threat that could block or stop my pace. It's cheaper than Cast Out and more reactive. Also It stops Gideon becoming a nightmare in games.....Plus it stops vehicles at instant speed as well, + the tapped creature becomes redundant for that turn too.Blossoming and immolating are for the obvious.
I cut out 1 Anoited and 2 Ajani's & the 4 feral prowlers
The only other change if you didn't want to remove the creature is to change it for Thraben Inspector....early blocker + clue + card draw. The best one off in standard.

I see where you are going and it's pretty cool. My only suggestion is that a swap of Dispel with Disallow SB/MB. You really have only 3 strong answers to protecting your win cons of liliana and T.S.G. with being Negate main board. Dispel doesn't catch cards like Cast Out, Never//Return, Ruinous Path, Stasis Snare or even hand disruption like Transgress the Mind or Lay Bare the Heart. You might snag them with a Censor but you have a stronger backup with Disallow so why risk it?

Did this to get ready for the rotation of the BfZ and Innistrad blocks. Waiting for Ixalan spoilers to look for better replacements and more than likely won't purchase this deck until after the introduction of Ixalan.

Supreme Will places them on the bottom of the deck for 2nd ability, not graveyard. It is also a turn 3 play. Spontaneous Mutation will not work well unless, for example, you run cycling, and even then that doesnt make it a good turn 1-2 play (might as well make it straight up removal past that like Stasis Snare, Declaration in Stone or Cast Out.
1 drops are lacking in these colors tho, the good removal 1 drops are in black and red atm :/ only other things i see for turn 1 play is Reason / Believe, Oath of Nissa, Narnam Renegade with that 1/2 deathtouch body, sideboard stuff (Blossoming Defense can be an option tho to protect a creature or trade up).
I like the deck tho, just skeptical(?) about there being enough early game plays as your curve is stacking a lot on 3 drops. Why i recommended selfess, you would have more on 2 drop curve.

I like it! I would cut some of the non cat creatures and add some removal and a powerful build around enchantment like Always Watching

Well, if you have enough pressure on the board the opponent either blocks your creatures or dies, you don't need to force a block. You can use conditional board wipes like Dawn and Retribution of the Meek if you REALLY feel like you need them, but i think you're gonna be fine running just some spot removal, after all you're gonna be the aggro player in most matchups.
Going mono-white will pretty much lock you out of trample but the protection from a chosen color given by Brave the Elements makes your creatures unblockable by creatures of the chosen color, so you still have some on demand evasion.
The difficulties you're having while choosing how to build this deck come from having two themes (enchantments and knight tribal) with little overlap. Your enchantments don't care that your creatures are knights and your knights have no real synergy with the enchantments.
To keep the enchantment count without losing the pseudo-evasion Rancor gives you could try Gryff's Boon or Angelic Gift. There is no Lure effect in white but you could try using Stasis Snare or Journey to Nowhere. Keen Sense is another problem, it has nothing similar to it in white, mono white is really bad at drawing cards, but try Mentor of the Meek.

This is Bean.
- Counterbalance (price for this on here is wrong, it's like $5 on tcgplayer. In fact, a lot of these prices are wrong)
- Frozen AEther
- Mana Maze
- Leyline of Anticipation
- Animate Dead
- Dance of the Dead
- Copy Enchantment
- Aura of Silence
- Arcane Laboratory
- Tainted Remedy
- Oblivion Ring
- Banishing Light
- Sphere of Safety
- Spirit of the Labyrinth
- Aegis of the Gods
- Eidolon of Rhetoric
- Supreme Verdict

- Pendrell Flux
- Vile Consumption
- Mana Web
- Praetor's Grasp
- Oppressive Rays
- Aqueous Form
- Suppression Field
- Future Sight + Sensei's Divining Top + Etherium Sculptor or Helm of Awakening = draw you whole deck
- Stasis Snare
- Temporal Isolation
- Spirit Mantle
- Starfield of Nyx
- Phyrexian Unlife (play this first) + Ad Nauseam = Draw your whole deck. Unlife says: you can't lose the game for having 0 or less life, and all damage to dealt to you when below 0 life is instead dealt in poison counters. Ad Naus doesn't deal damage to you, it's loss of life and so you can pay as much life as you want, draw your deck, and not gain any counters. Works fantastically with all the Propaganda/Sphere of Safety effects, if you run them. Worst case scenario, just put Solemnity out and you can't gain poison counters :D
More expensive options, or later upgrades to the deck:
- Show and Tell + Omniscience (can allow you to potentially cast any number of game ending combos, i.e. Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac + draw)
- Serra's Sanctum
- Dark Depths (combos with Solemnity)
- Idyllic Tutor
- Runed Halo
- Greater Auramancy
- Bitterblossom + Contamination
- Leyline of the Void, can also combo with: Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension, infinite combo while it exiles opponents libraries since Leyline of the Void is out.
- Leyline of Sanctity
