Tamiyo's Journal Discussion

loricatuslupus on Can't touch this (Mono White Lifegain)

1 week ago

So you've chosen mono-white, traditionally seen as a weaker colour in EDH thanks to a lack of ramp and draw. But not does it gain life, and you can work with that! First up, some creatures that care about lifegain (if you're not going full stax you'll need decent bodies to block and close out the game if your win-cons get removed): Ajani's Pridemate; Angel of Vitality; Archangel of Thune; Gideon's Company; Heliod, Sun-Crowned; Serene Steward; Serra Ascendant; Serra Avatar or Twinblade Paladin are all decent at this while Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sun Titan are staples for a reason. I'm not convinced by the Runes, they're cool but a completely dead draw if your opponents aren't playing that colour. Other options might be Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Crackdown; Cradle of Vitality, Dawn of Hope; Path of Bravery; Smothering Tithe and Sunbond. The Reservoir is one of your best ways to win, so being able to search it up with Enlightened Tutor or the more budget Inventors' Fair and Tamiyo's Journal would be good. Other cards that might be good inclusions would be a wrath or two; Tithe/Land Tax; Debt of Loyalty; Lapse of Certainty; Selfless Squire; Rebuff the Wicked; Voidstone Gargoyle; Generous Gift; Emeria Shepherd; Exile and maybe some of the many Ajanis, Elspeths or Gideons. Finally, I reckon that 35 lands may even be a few too many, especially as most of them are basics. Might be worth cutting down to 30 and looking for some utility in cyclers/Emeria, The Sky Ruin/Detection Tower/Evolving Wilds etc. Could probably trade Path of Ancestry away too - it doesn't do much for you but is actually quite valuable!

You have a lot of enchantment-based removal, like Darksteel Mutation, et al. I like these effects a lot but they can be even better with recursion. Starfield of Nyx and Hanna, Ship's Navigator would be good choices if you're looking for more card advantage. As far as deck slots go they can usually be treated as "draw".

They're expensive, but some of the best card draw cards are Kindred Discovery, Phyrexian Arena, and Rhystic Study. Some other fair-to-middling options that are enchantments/artifacts are Honden of Seeing Winds, The Magic Mirror, Coastal Piracy, Underworld Connections, Greed, Erebos, God of death, Vampiric Rites, Distant Melody, Mind Unbound, Well of Ideas, Thassa, God of the Sea (Scry 1 is kinda like 0.45 of a drawn card), Thought Reflection, Dictate of Kruphix, Monastery Siege, Tamiyo's Journal, Staff of Nin, Arcane Encyclopedia.

You have inspired me... to build a jank Bant version of this deck using Tamiyo's Journal & Briarbridge Patrol to drop big things for cheap.

Corrosive_Cat on The Recycling Plant [Mono-Green Artifact Combo]

For sure, but it's a little tricky - would need probably both Tamiyo's Journal s out to make sure the Colossi are discounted enough, which is difficult when they've probably been lobbed into the graveyard a while ago. Sure there's some artifact recursion but it ain't easy.

He doesn't need From Beyond. Maybe another copy of Tamiyo's Journal and definitely another copy of Briarbridge Patrol , but otherwise, the deck is fine.
