Stonehorn Dignitary Discussion

MrKennedy on The Eternal Emperor

I find that Phyrexia's Core is too narrow in use. Stonehorn Dignitary was something I ran initially, but my playgroup had gradually started to rely less on combat-based wincons so it wasn't doing much for me either.

Venser is something I'm still on the fence about, as I often switch between him and Karn. He does help get me extra ETB value when I can't reliably hit someone with Brago, but right now I'm a bit tight on space for him (this is actually an older build that I keep for records as I have gone more into the stax route currently).

I was thinking...I know you have all the bounce power, but if for some reason Brago is not in play and you were running Phyrexia's Core it provides you with a way to sac artifact. Which is fairly convenient when you happen to have the Spine of Ish Sah out. It is rather specific, but still a useful way to recur a powerful effect.

Additionally, I was thinking you need Stonehorn Dignitary. It's ETB effect allows you to soft-lock out opponents from coming at you, and buying you time to get the pieces you need in place.

I saw Venser in your maybe board. I know you are running Tezz for the tutoring...but venser has that emblem, AND the ability to make Brago unblock able. Just my 2 cents.

I don't think Stonehorn Dignitary really fits with the theme of blinking our creatures for value - a 4CMC 1/4 is often a dead draw and unnecessarily brings up the curve IMO. This deck has 29 creatures so having enough blockers to deal with an opponent's combat phase shouldn't typically be an issue.

You can go infinite if you add Panharmonicon and Felidar Guardian - Resto angel doesn't allow you to blink other angels, so having a Felidar Guardian to blink combined with the extra ETB trigger from Panharmonicon allows you to blink Resto + Felidar + one other creature indefinitely for free. This is particularly great for an insta-kill with Inquisitor Exarch

Blade Splicer is fantastic value that gives you unlimited 3/3 first strike tokens - I would consider replacing Stonehorn or some of your card draw effects with these to help go wide.

Also, you're running a lot of blinkers - 2 flickerwisps, 4 restos, and 4 interludes means that nearly 25% of your nonland cards will be suboptimal draws unless you have a creature out to blink. I would consider dropping 2 interludes for a value card like Blade Splicer or catch-all removal like Oblivion Ring

Stonehorn Dignitary is suashi, and that ghostly flicker route is cool, but i think I like the Pestilence Wall of Hope Dromad Purebred interaction the most. if you can find more cards that interact well in that frame that could be cool. red also could be useful for Swirling Sandstorm effects to boardwipe and gain a lot of life.

kamelyan Thanks for the feedback!

I went ahead and cut Jaddi Offshoot, Jareth, Leonine Titan, & Hoofprints of the Stag. I decided in looking through the cuts to not directly replace Hoofprints and instead went with Awakening Zone since it's really populating for wall building. Plus, the drones have extra utility!

I'm reluctant to cut Stonehorn Dignitary, though he needs some sort of blink to help him out. I'm going to leave him in until I figure out what I want to do with him.

I like the base of your version of Rafiq of the Many - How does it play in your experience?

Jaddi Offshoot is an obvious cut.

Jareth, Leonine Titan is too selfish (and expensive) for my taste.

Without blinking, Stonehorn Dignitary is not worth it.

Hoofprints of the Stag is meh, but that's probably just a bias (I'm partial to Sacred Mesa and even Mobilization).

I hope that helps make room for you. Now you can rip into my outdated deck, if you'd like... or give it a much needed upvote.

ZendikariWol on Brago likes cards too

So what's your wincon? If it's Laboratory Maniac then you need more cards that can get it from the grave, and more protection for if opponents exile it. And what if they exile it from the graveyard? I mean you could Stonehorn Dignitary lock, but that's assuming you get to 1v1. None of your creatures are super big, and most if not all of them are gonna have summoning sickness all the time, right?

Anyway, no Mycosynth Wellspring? So much ramp! Deck so thin!

Venser, the Sojourner is great for blink/flicker decks..... Stonehorn Dignitary and Reality Acid are fun to abuse with him as well. Eternal Witness and Time Warp are great for the ininite turn combo....Wall of Omens is great draw and stall...Sage of Epityr is good topdeck manipulation...Cloudshift and Eerie Interlude are also great enablers.
