I've got a small update for you all!

  • updated the introduction
  • added Veteran section

A little late but I hope everyone enjoyed their Winter and any festivities. As always, thank you all for your submissions and support!

I really shouldn't let these submissions build up...

Hydrax on Spirit Enchantment

First of all, I really like Spirts and I've built a very similar deck that I've had success with.

So I'm going to make some initial suggestions with explanations. My advice is coming from playtesting this deck for months and months. That being said, it is YOUR deck so feel free to play however you like!

What I believe you should take out:

Here's what I think you should add:

And here are my reasons why:

  • You want to cut down on Auras. Drawing an Aura without having a creature to equip it to feels really bad, it's a dead card. This deck should be creature-focused, all about beating your opponent down with Flying spirits occasionally buffed up with Auras; not the other way around.

  • Sovereigns of Lost Alara is a great card, but most opponents won't let you survive until you have 6 mana. This deck wants to end things very, very quickly. A Geist of Saint Traft equipped with Steel of the Godhead is a very fast clock, you really don't need to go to turn 6.

  • Without the Sovereigns, Eldrazi Conscription is also pointless.

  • Daybreak Coronet is a great card, but unfortunately it cannot be searched by Tallowisp's effect. There is a ruling that states Tallowisp can only search for cards that say "Enchant Creature" on their first line with no other words in that same line (so things like Steel of the Godhead are fine). But Daybreak Coronet says "Enchant creature with..." so unfortunately it cannot be searched.

  • You liked having the option to stall the game with Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch and Ghostly Possession, well let me tell you about Selfless Spirit and Gift of Immortality. Selfless Spirit can sacrifice itself at any time to give your whole team indestructible, so they can freely block any creature or survive damage or destruction. It's a great effect, but a Selfless Spirit enchanted with Gift of Immortality can do this EVERY TURN and there's very little your opponent can do to get out of this lock. I'd highly recommend this change above all others I've listed.

  • Swords to Plowshares because you need some reliable removal in case you run into a creature that's just giving you a lot of trouble.

  • Curious Obsession keeps your hand filled; the last thing you want is to run out of steam.

  • I'd recommend exchanging 1 Drogskol Captain for another Spell Queller. Once you have a Steel-enchanged Geist on the field, you should try to save mana for Spell Queller, because your opponent might try to kill it with a mass removal spell like Supreme Verdict. You need to be able to stop things like that with Spell Queller.

This deck could very easily be converted to Modern if you want, just switch the Brainstorm to Serum Visions or Opt and Swords to Plowshares to Path to Exile and you'll be set (but that's up to you).

Feel free to look at my deck here: Immortal Geist

I've written some pretty detailed stuff so you can get a good understanding of the deck.

As for your sideboard, I'll take a look at the Legacy metagame and get back to you, but good luck with your deck!

I forgot that Tallowisp makes that easier to do.

I’ll experiment. An issue I could see is that it leaves us much weaker to removal. And Burn is a pretty rough matchup.

Really cool deck!!! Have you considered Tallowisp? It could be used to grab things like Gift of Immortality, Shielded by Faith, and Indestructibility if you decided to go with a package like that. Also, Shining Shoal could be interesting with your general as you can tailor its cmc to destroy a specific target.

Other cards that may interest you are Erratic Portal, Nikko-Onna and Pteron Ghost.

PlatinumWare another list of great suggestions! The Tallowisp is getting playtested into my other voltron deck White beatdown. The two blue creatures I'm considering, though neither can close a game on its own. The fetch land is also very neat, I like it with hallowed fountain if I need blue

I like the list! Bruna can be devastating when she's out! A couple of possibilities here. Tallowisp is a good option to get your best auras on the board quick, and I think you have enough spirits for it to be viable. Narcolepsy is a possibility that can hamper an opponent with a big baddie. Meletis Astronomer can be another good way to get some enchantments in hand as well. You may also consider some mana enchantments, although I think most of those are green. I would get 4 Flooded Strand for this deck as well. A bit pricey, but getting that sweet sweet blue on the field is nice, especially since you have some lifelink. I'm interested to see what you do with this!

Gostgun, I'm not using Geist of Saint Traft for two main reasons: 1 is money. 2 is the fact that my deck isn't necessarily a traditional spirit deck that uses cards like Steel of the Godhead to give him unblockable. He winds up dying to creatures easily if something can block it. My deck is more oriented towards extreme defense until I can swing with fliers or Latch Seeker. If it were up to me I'd take out Call to the Kindred and Tallowisp for Aether Vial and Phantasmal Image.

I appreciate the feedback though! I definitely thought about having him if I went the more traditional route with this deck.
