Temple Acolyte Discussion

Gadianten on Divine Machinations (Cleric Tribal)

In: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Dictate of Erebos, Dictate of Heliod, Dark Supplicant and Scion of Darkness

Out: Utter End, Luminarch Ascension, Anointed Procession, Temple Acolyte, Arashin Cleric and Diabolic Intent

I was found I generally lacked the token creation ability to make Anointed Procession consistent. I also wanted to boost my board wipe count to deal opponents getting out of hand and since most of the issues in my meta are creature based I felt it was okay to cut utter end for more board wipes. I switched out the two clerics for Dark Acolyte and Scion of Darkness in hopes of increasing combat effectiveness and fun.

In: Dusk / Dawn, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Anointed Procession, High Priest of Penance, Angelic Accord, Luminarch Ascension, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Arashin Cleric and Temple Acolyte

Out: True Conviction, Reliquary Monk, Devout Chaplain, Test of Endurance, Austere Command, Ancestor's Prophet, Alhammarret's Archive, Beacon of Immortality, Heliod's Pilgrim and Gift of Immortality

Got rid of Test of Endurance and Beacon of Immortality since my current combo tends to make it redundant. Ancestor's Prophet always seemed to disappoint since by the time I could activate him I had either won or lost.Alhammarret's Archive seemed like a win more kind of card in the deck and I was unable to always get value out of it. Devout Chaplain and Reliquary Monk got seldom if any use. Gift of immortality tended to be difficult to set up quickly enough to matter. I am not sure about Austere Command but wanted to test Dawn/Dusk.

I have attempted to increase the decks token generating theme and increase gain life ETB's to hopefully improve pre combo game play. I have also added more spot removal as I face Kalia often.

I am focusing the deck further on life gain with the hope of getting Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim online sooner with that in mind I will be making the following changes:

Out: Beacon of Destiny and High Priest of Penance

in: Arashin Cleric and Temple Acolyte

While both these choices are generally underwhelming on there own, they offer 3 life for or 6 life for if I sacrifice them. They also serve as good early blockers helping keep my life total up. I think they synergize better with Ayli overall with their high toughness to cost and is more effective life gain with Lifeline as well.

Would the Cathedral Sanctifier be better than the Temple Acolyte? Other ideas are the Jaddi Offshoot or the Serra Ascendant, though I don't know what to take out for them.
