acht_deck_manager on What life?

6 days ago

Just some thoughts in case they help build off of what Immortalized said or provide any other useful things to look at:


There are a lot of other draw cards too that you might consider:

And countless more. In a deck like this though there's a lot of value to be had in something like Phyrexian Arena since 1 life per upkeep is no biggie with Oloro around


Here's some other good removal to think about:

Slow Down Taxes

Here are some cards that can really halt your opponent's aggression:

Taxing Creatures

Some other creatures worth mentioning that tax an opponent's life:

Other Notables

Here's some other cards that are worth noting:

  • Pristine Talisman combos well if you have Oloro out (Tap to gain life, spend the mana to draw the card and cost each opponent 1 life)
  • Baleful Strix can be great utility in this kind of deck
  • Reliquary Tower Is always great in draw decks

Additional Thoughts

One card I'd definitely recommend ditching is Azor's Elocutors.

Other cards I see that I'd consider removing if it was me:

I used to play an Oloro deck as well (albeit it with a very different affinity ) using a ton more artifacts and some fun combinations around Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk . He's a great commander and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the deck and can find something useful in any of my suggestions.

Good luck and happy hunting!

They cost the same and you're running a life gain build. Or you could use Temple of Enlightenment

So, my thoughts. If I am playing UW I would be either playing control or if you want to stick to tempo I might do something like VOLTRON. So either you are just playing for the long game (which is easy to do in EDH) or you can play the tempo and rely on throwing enchantments on creatures and some equipment. Look at voltron lists on here and see what they are doing.--okay, I forgot what Brago did, the aforementioned stuff is relevant, but stick to blink and utility creatures-- I will give you suggestions for cards in what you are doing. the next message is what to remove

Some Planeswalkers I might Suggest:

Elspeth, Sun's Champion


Angelic Destiny

Rhystic Study


Entreat the Angels



Cataclysmic Gearhulk

Spell Queller

Reflector Mage

Fiend Hunter

Karmic Guide

Consecrated Sphinx


Venser, Shaper Savant


Angel of Finality




Dragonlord Ojutai


Celestial Colonnade

Reliquary Tower

Temple of Enlightenment

Azorius Chancery

Nimbus Maze

Rogue's Passage

Calciform Pools

Prairie Stream

Halimar Depths

Mystic Gate


Sensei's Divining Top

Sol Ring

Chromatic Lantern

Gilded Lotus

Talisman of Progress

This is all I can think of for now.

just saw the second comment. Tamiyo would not benefit you. both of her abilities are subpar for modern. In EDH shes a powerhouse because of her draw ability, but in modern it will probably wiff more often than it helps you. You mentioned her for defense, and there are several planeswalkers with better defensive abilities. some are even quite cheap. Jace, Architect of Thought is one of the better ones. But I think you're better off without him. maybe test it tho.

you hadn't read my first post when you asked about Temple of Enlightenment, so read that for a detailed explanation. long story short, I dont like the temple lands. Entering tapped is just such a huge drawback for a dual land. I explained the qualities of the fetches and shocks, and yes, they are the best way to build a manabase in modern. period. however, I have a budget alternative. Glacial Fortress, Prairie Stream, Port Town. you'll want 4 Prairie Streams before anything else. they are the glue that holds this manabase together. without them, the other two are much less consistent.

boom, i just saved you $100 =P

Thanks for the comment!I do run 3 Celestial Colonnade, didn't really want 4 because it can really slow down the deck, especially with 4 Temple of Enlightenment. The more I think about Snapcaster Mage the more I think that it needs to be added to the mainboard. I like Blessed Alliance, probably take out Apostle's Blessing. I like Center Soul as well, just not really sure what I would take out for that. Thanks for the comment and the +1!

Also, here is a link to the WIP version: Control/Mil WIP.

What are your thoughts for Temple of Enlightenment and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage for a deck like this? Temple of Enlightenment gives scrying when it enters play, and Tamiyo can serve as another line of defense/annoyance. She does have a high CMC compared to most of the rest of the deck.

And yes, my sideboard is all kinds of messy. That is another project.
