DemonDragonJ on Guilds of Ravnica: Spoilers and ...

landofMordor, but "(cardname) deals X damage to you" occupies more space on a card than does "you lose X life," so, surely, WotC would want to preserve card space?

Also, the flavor difference is important, as well, as it is the difference between being stabbed in the abdomen with a sword versus bleeding from the wound afterward.

Then, there is the mechanical difference: damage can be altered by Story Circle or Furnace of Rath, while life loss cannot be; I also highly doubt that very many players could find that to be a difficult thing to understand, so this seems to be a change that is being made simply for the sake of making a change.

I was excited to put Assassin's Trophy in my decks to replace Putrefy, but its current pre-order price is $22, and I doubt that it will decrease by a significant amount, so I doubt that I shall be purchasing any copies of it at any point in the near future.

The new Vraska is nice, but I have two complaints about her final ability: first, it is too powerful for only 9 loyalty, as other planeswalkers have abilities that cost greater amounts of loyalty but are not as powerful; second, this is now the second time that Vraska has taken that ability from Phage the Untouchable, making it that much less unique; I really wish that WotC had kept that ability unique to Phage, because this is blatant evidence of both how ridiculously powerful planeswalkers are and how much WotC is emphasizing them.

Alhammarret's Archive is a great choice, as kamelyan said. Also, Commander doesn't really have a sideboard. That said, looking at your's I'd drop all your circle of protections (resulting in +4 sideboard card space!!!) and adding Story Circle. For one extra mana you gain all the circle of protections in one. Cool deck. I too am a fan of Oloro.

Righteous Aura Story Circle. Why block when you can negate damage? Lol

I like it. It treads the line between being a Story Circle, and an Ajani Steadfast emblem that reduces it to 2 instead. It's undercosted, because it has that flexibility.

To be on the safe side, I'd make it . Am I being too conservative?

DemonDragonJ on Norn's Shield

I have made another Phyrexianized version of an existing card (in this case, Story Circle and/or Righteous Aura), as seen here:

Norn's Shield Show

I increased the casting cost of this card over story circle because it allows life to be paid instead of mana, but will still be able to be cast sufficiently early for it to actually have an effect on the game.

What does everyone else think of this card?

Thanks for your comment, SynergyBuild!

The ramp might be a little slow, but I tried playing around with Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, and the like, but that was even slower. One of the key parts of playing this deck is landing a T2 Ghostly Prison or Story Circle, so I'm not incredibly focused on what comes after that - if I can lock down the early game, I'm generally favored in the late game, except against Control or Tron.

For that reason, I'm not a huge fan of Suppression Field - additional cards to lock my opponent after T2 or T3 don't really do all that much.

Flagstones of Trokair is good, but I'm not sure it's worth the $20 price tag - I'm trying to keep this deck around $250, as people who can afford more expensive cards probably have better decks to play, myself included. This deck isn't going to be winning any GPs; I just want people to be able to take this to an FNM and have a decently strong jank deck.

My wincons are a little on the slow side, yes, but this is a pretty slow deck. It doesn't matter a ton that none of them do anything the turn they come down when my opponent can't do anything. When it costs 10 mana to attack with a single creature, I'm not particularly worried about quickly closing out the game. I'd play Auratog if it had some sort of protection, but this deck is already pretty vulnerable to spot removal, and I don't want my wincon to be similarly vulnerable.

Story Circle instead of Circle of Protection: Red as it isnt a dead card in non-red match ups
