B.A.N.E. on Pillow Fort Bleed - Protecting ...

3 months ago

BS-T - you know I had most of those cards on my list and cut them before my last refinement. I don't know why I didn't put Circle of Protection: Red or Story Circle in there!

ScionsStillLive - much appreciated

Deck list is here: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/burn-everyone-bwr-pillow-fort-bleed/

I've been play testing it for a week. In the description I have some notes and half the cards I've been considering.

griffstick - I was afraid I would kill Platinum Emperion if using Death Pits of Rath or that it would prevent me from using Necropotence

StopShot - Karma and Blanket of Night was my combo but I dropped it because I was trying to simplify the deck. I might put it back in. Actually I think I should.

BS-T on Pillow Fort Bleed - Protecting ...

This is tricky - I like it!

There are a few decent prevention effects among these: Scryfall, the best for you probably being Light of Sanction .

Though you've likely tackled this angle fairly well... The best repeatable ones on the list are Story Circle , Circle of Protection: Red / Rune of Protection: Red - and the slightly spicier Shieldmage Advocate , Protective Sphere / Righteous Aura .

Urza's Armor is decent if you're using things like Pyrohemia and is useful to a degree vs Spellshock or Pyrostatic Pillar (also have you got Eidolon of the Great Revel ?) Similarly the ult of Ajani Steadfast seems good.

If I may, I'd recommend Circle of Protection: Red for the sideboard. 'Tis horrendously effective against burn strategies in a way with both creatures and spells, as well as being cheaper than Story Circle .

The deck seems to be focused against creature-based decks, being fraught with specific cards against them. In note of this, Overwhelming Splendor may be a bit high on the mana curve.

Deafening Silence also seems to juxtapose the current build. With plenty of one-of silver bullet cards, perhaps Idyllic Tutor could hold that plan together? This would also allow for a very diverse sideboard plan. A couple of Commune with the Gods couldn't hurt, either.

A singular Plains could be of aid if you run into someone playing Blood Moon . Journey to Nowhere is quite effective removal that is also on-theme. On Thin Ice could help if you had snow basics, too.

Heroic Intervention in the sideboard could help against Fracturing Gust or spells of the sort.

Dosan the Falling Leaf could help against control decks. This enchantment build seems to have absolutely no instant speed interaction, so Stasis Snare could be great, or Cast Out for planeswalkers.

Courser of Kruphix could be solid life-gain and card filtering, as well as a blocker.

Seal of Primordium could be okay, but maybe not. Worship would be fun.

'Tis all, my friend. Happy enchanting.

hungry000 on Painting Iona's Gifts - Esper Gifts

This deck would be much cooler if you played some color hate cards like Celestial Purge, Kor Firewalker, Burrenton Forge-Tender, Story Circle, Flashfreeze, etc in the sideboard; that way, if you have a Painter's Servant but don't yet have an Iona out you can name red and gain life or kill any permanent with Celestial Purge.

Perplex seems unnecessary. It doesn't look for any combo pieces, and it's more cost-efficient to play cantrips and other normal card draw spells. Alternatively you could play Muddle the Mixture, which serves as combo protection and a way to get a combo piece. I also don't think the 3 mana counterspells are good enough. Mana Leak and more Remand are better there.

I would add more ramp (Marble Diamond, Pearl Medallion, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, etc.) in place of some plains (I like to have 36-38 lands in my control decks, as I feel that <39 is too much) to get your commander out faster to counter aggro decks. Also consider Serra Ascendant, Serra Avatar, and Luminarch Ascension for some nice attackers, and Blazing Archon, Ajani Steadfast, Story Circle, and Platinum Angel for pillowfort.

DemonDragonJ on Shroud of Benevolence/Malevolence

1 year ago

Story Circle is a wonderful card, but it has not been reprinted in many years, nor have any cards similar to it been printed, recently, so I wish to pay a homage to it with my own creations, as seen, below:

Shroud of Benevolence Show

This card adds the effect of Awe Strike and/or Hallow to story circle, and, as such, is more expensive to both cast and activate.

Shroud of Malevolence Show

This card is more aggressive than the other, being very similar to, yet very different from, it at the same time.

What does everyone think of these cards?

DemonDragonJ on Could Black Have "Flickering" Effects?

xhuggels, I presume that that that means that there is no way that black could have its own version of Story Circle or Righteous Aura?
