You should put in more lands. Sunscape Familiar is an amazing card for petitioners. I like the concept.

Thanks for the suggestions!

  • Sunscape Familiar is one that has been on my radar now for a while and I definitely intend to get it on my next round of purchases.
  • Stalwart Shield-Bearers this is genius, I'm not sure how I overlooked them!
  • As for the gates, I actually just took the three gates I had in out for consistency, just forgot I still had the Gatecreeper Vine in there. It is gonna get cut too.

I also think of Sunscape Familiar as a must have.

Wall of Shards is surprisingly useful as a political tool.

What about Hold the Gates you already have a Gatecreeper Vine and a Maze's End could potentially fetch three gates - which isn't bad.

Nice to see a new player to EDH, if you ever have any questions just ask.


I have a few preliminary suggestions for you.

Taking advantage of the 0 power of your walls is a must here (so avoiding things that give your walls +1/+1 is advisable. Rather, go for effects like Stalwart Shield-Bearers instead).

Giving your walls vigilance (and other things) is a powerful thing to do from my experience.

I have a lot more to suggest, but I'll hold them unless you have specific ideas you are looking for. I also have my own Arcades deck that I have built that I would highly recommend looking at.

I hope that this is of some help! Again, if you ever have questions just go ahead and ask me on my profile; I will do my best to help you.

Nice, flicker is fun. I play a UW Flicker deck with Sunscape Familiar and Compulsive Research and stuff. I'm of the opinion that Momentary Blink has to be better than Acrobatic Maneuver, but that's just me. Getting to recast it for extra value is better than the single card drawn every day of the week, and it's 1 less mana for the initial cast.

Part of me doesn't want to divulge one of my secrets, but another part of me kinda does... Gulf Squid is incredible. With blink effects behind it you just get to completely tap them down on their upkeep, which is usually either a Silence at worst or a Time Walk at best. Paired with Ghostly Flicker and Mnemonic Wall, they never get to use their lands again except on their upkeep. Fun stuff.

Thanks for the response. What cuts would make to your list of you were playing in a non cedh environment?

Consecrated Sphinx, Glowrider, Tendershoot Dryad, Sunscape Familiar, Sun Titan, Elvish Spirit Guide, Glen Elendra Archmage, Glowrider, Lotus Cobra Loxodon Gatekeeper, Oracle of Mul Daya, Phyrexian Metamorph, Phyrexian Revoker, Day's Undoing, Idyllic Tutor, Fabricate, Timetwister, Windfall Frozen AEther, Grasp of Fate Kismet, Chalice of the Void and Lotus Petal are the cards not being played in the above mentioned list.

All the creatures with the exception of Loxodon Gatekeeper, Elvish Spirit Guide, Phyrexian Revoker and Glowrider seem like upgrades for a high end casual environment. If you could only include four creatures that are unique to your list for a casual list what would they be? My guess would be Sun Titan, Glen Elendra Archmage, Tendershoot Dryad, and Sunscape Familiar.

Idyllic Tutor seems really good in a midrange deck. Would its inclusion along with the widely played Enlightened Tutor allow for me to run Living Plane? Is Sterling Grove too slow even for a casual environment? Does Aura Shards make it back into the deck?
