Suture Priest Discussion

Gattison on The Ol' In-Out, In-Out

4 days ago

eyes2sky: ok, so now, despite your suggestion to remove , which does make sense, consider this with me...

-1 Falkenrath Noble because I only have one, he never comes out, and I don't seem to need him. (dammit.)

+1 Krenko's Command

-4 Angry Mob
-4 Raise the Alarm

+4 Suture Priest
+4 Soul Warden

My thinking is, the two decks (the Foul-Tongue Shriek deck and this one) actually ARE doing the same thing though, abusing ETB and ETG triggers. Meanwhile, consider that the other deck might be getting distracted with the ETB triggers, and should instead focus on flooding the field ASAP for Foul-Tongue Shriek, also ASAP.

We've seen how having Deathgreeter and/or Hissing Iguanar out during combat is huge, so if I double-down on ALL ETB/ETG triggers in this deck, then I can swing out, lose my Soul Wardens and Hissing Iguanars during combat, get value out of it, and then cast another 2nd main phase. triggering Impact Tremors, ofc.

I feel like the Force is telling me this deck is best as Mardu, idk why....

Nice Deck.

If you want to go in two colored approach there are some nice interactions between some cards you already use there:

Sprout Swarm & other Convoke-Cards: Nettle Sentinel, Thermo-Alchemist & Zephyr Scribe, Midnight Guard

Bramble Elemental: Ghitu Firebreathing, Galvanic Arc (Aura Bolt), Conviction, Mark of Fury, Shimmering Wings, Whip Silk

in gerneral: Roar of the Crowd, Impact Tremors

in gerneral: Distant Melody

in gerneral: Pack's Disdain, Deathspore Thallid

in gerneral: Pallid Mycoderm, Selesnya Evangel, Soul Warden et al. or Suture Priest

If I were to find a way to put it into this deck, I would likely remove Hail of Arrows or Approach of the Second Sun. You really only need one or two Crested Sunmares at most, it's one of those cards that is a wincon in itself. Soul Warden and Suture Priest are both super underrated as well, especially because soul warden gives you life for all creatures, not just your own.

The primary reason we do not use Suture Priest is to protect against the clear counter to any four color deck Blood Moon. Simply put the excessive diversification of our mana base would limit our ability to deal with the rampant land destruction and mooning that currently appears in some 20% of all modern competitive decks. Yes Priest is a better choice than Blood Artist however the artist gives our field spikes that allow us to capitalize on another form of attack that works reasonably well and punishes our opponents for the use of wrath spells (which they would absolutely board in game 2).

So, this is a variant on Dagger Burn? It reminds me a lot of my version with Ratchet Bomb and Mercy Killing. IDK about Blood Artist, wouldn't a Suture Priest be more reliable? There's a solid argument for both of them, though.

Shagoth on Thousand degree Knife

I've made a Dagger Burn deck as well, and I appreciate the creativity here, but I believe there are some potentially better choices. I think that Suture Priest is the best Tresspasser's Curse creature. You may not want it for a white splash, but white offers the catch all removal spell, Path to Exile which is useful to have a removal spell that basically negates all but hexproof, (I've ran into some Bolt/Push probs in the past), and it also has one of the weirdest removal spells in the form of Mercy Killing, it's more to make tokens than anything, and I think it's way better than unlicensed disintegration here. It is probably more reliable. Never been a fan of the Saheeli Rai plan, I think even Panharmonicon pushes it a little too much. I really wish I thought of cantrips, though. Hope my constructive criticism was of use.

You have to remember as well that a lot of important staple creatures are or start out small enough to die to it, such as Aven Mindcensor, most elves or mana dorks such as Leaden Myr or Birds of Paradise, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Soul Warden and Suture Priest, the list goes on and on.

Sure, not the crazy stuff, but it's much more disruptive than people are led to believe.
