Suncleanser Discussion

Sorry, that was a bit rude,

If you are splashing green for Huatli, the Sun's Heart , then Tower Defense is a must-have. Imagine 3, 0/4 creatures and High Alert - Play Tower Defense and swing with 3, 8/8 creatures. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive can then make all of your creatures unblockable. Slaughter the Strong gives you a cheap one-sided board-wipe. Dovin's Veto counters your opponent's board-wipes. This should be the core of your deck.

I rather like Suncleanser , but would back it up with 2 or 3 Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , Wall of Mist , Wall of Runes , Grappling Sundew and Resolute Watchdog . You want to aim for your first attack to be a one-turn-kill.

I got rid of my instants of 2x Aegis of the Heavens and 2x Dive Down and replaced them with 3x Tower Defense . Then I removed Suncleanser and added 2x Slaughter the Strong . Then I added two Forests and got rid of one Plains. Then I got rid of 4x Opt for 4x Adventurous Impulse .Is this better?

Adventurous Impulse only lets me choose one out of three, while I'm guaranteed a land card from Open the Gates . It seems that Open the Gates is more advantageous for lands.

I see that Opt is kind of useless unless I really need to draw a card; any alternatives?; Chemister's Insight is too much mana cost. I could also drop Opt, but I think I'll need them for drawing High Alert or Arcades, the Strategist .I don't think I really need Tower Defense when I have the other four instants as it costs 2 mana, especially one green which is rare for my deck, while Dive Down will be useful for bolts on Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive as it grants hexproof. And when I do get him on the field along with High Alert or Arcades, the Strategist and wall(s) then Aegis of the Heavens will be very useful.

I think removing Suncleanser would be useful and adding more mana cards in its stead as I have only 18 along with 4 Open the Gates , and I've tried the draw mechanic on the website on this deck, and I rarely draw enough land cards that I need. If I could entirely use blue and white except for Arcades, the Strategist, I would be a happy camper, but I think I'll really need reach from Grappling Sundew . Is there a Standard Legal flying card with 1 or less offense and high defense? I was thinking of Concordia Pegasus but only 3 damage is kind of a waste for 2 mana.

It all depends on my luck of the draw in this deck, as I need High Alert or Arcades, the Strategist with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive early in the game with enough lands along with walls/creatures to sustain my game.

The only reason I'm playing Bant is for Arcades; otherwise if I could double my High Alerts then I would play Azorius. That would require drawing strength I do not know of in order to draw High Alert with only four of them in my deck.

I would certainly play Adventurous Impulse over Open the Gates and Tower Defense over Opt . I would then move Suncleanser to the side-board and drop a Plains to bring in 3 Forest .

Medicine Runner removes only a single counter, but is green. I know this isn’t what you were asking for, but if you need it in a different deck, Suncleanser also removes counters.

Suncleanser can remove -1/-1 counters from your creatures and protect them against being given more, but it doesn't allow you to remove poison counters from yourself.

A card does what it says, no more and no less. Suncleanser can remove counters from any creature, but in terms of players it can only remove counters from your opponents. As-written, you can't target yourself with the ability.

hi all, im still searching for ways to counter infect damage or poison counters and have recently pulled a Suncleanser from a pack of 2019. unfortunately i tend to have a problem discerning between what words mean, and what words mean in Magic. if anyone can please shed some light as to whether this card allows me to do this, please do so and i thank you in advance.
