Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Discussion

Qolorful on From Lands to Legends: Karametra edh

1 day ago

Is this really your first edh build? Lol you shoulda seen mine! Freaking Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas that had no ramp other than sol ring and boros Clue stone... embarrassing honsestly. Good job on your first build

Since you're already ramping with your commander, cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben can be pretty obnoxious for those pesky blue players too, and won't much bother you. This includes Lodestone Golem tic an extent, Sphere of Resistance, and Trinisphere. Just a thought for your soft lock strategy.

As far as running out of gas, it doesn't much look like you should be with your list, you've got a lot of card draw and ramp, so you should be able to keep crapping out cards all you want. Though you can make serious use of Sylvan Library and Abundance in this deck, as well as the new enchantment from ixalan. I don't recall it's name but it basically gives you a card whenever an opponent removes something from your board.

Hope this helps a bit?

Joraga Treespeaker isn't the greatest. Same with Thorn of Amethyst as a one of. If you do want to go with a Tax suite, then I suggest Sphere of Resistance, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Trinisphere. Otherwise, I would take it out. Also, maybe Gaddock Teeg?

So I got a nail in the side wall of a new tire on my truck and need it replaced. On top of that my wife needs new tires on her car. So I'm a little strapped for cash and need to sell some cards from my personal collection. These cards are the cards I never listed for trade or sell before as they are my favorites, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

Payment is through PayPal, needs to be paid in full before I ship. Shipping is free on orders 30$ or more. Tracking free in orders 50$ or more. It may take me up to a week to ship depending on the size of the order.

Im also trying to clear out the last of my mana symbol stickers. You can see them on my profile. They are 2.50$ each or if you buy one of each color for a total of 5 it's 8$.

I have a single copy of each planeswalker up to HOU. Each one is the ORIGINAL printing and every single one is NM and has been double sleeved since I have owned it. Just post which ones you are looking for.

I like this deck. It has a theme and in playtest, seems to play well. The linking between Path to Exile, Lone Rider and Odric, Lunarch Marshal is a great set of combos.I'd actually ditch the two Thalia, Guardian of Thraben for more Odric. Without him, you don't have the lifelink you need in order to keep Lone Rider flipped. He's pretty key to your deck.

Nice job!

Match Report Part One:

These are the matches I have had time to test so far as I find free time in the coming days I'll record more results.

  • vs. Allies 1-2

Very close matchup but eventually the speed and tempo of allies was able to take the win. If anything this matchup showed how much you want Card: stony silence in the sideboard as Aether Vial tears apart the deck turning off Nevermore and cards of the like. Also, allies had a natural advantage in the form of Harabaz Druid which, if I didn't have removal, could easily pay the prison tax.

  • vs. U/B Turns 0-2

This is my personal competitive deck that I have been working on for months so experience was a factor. In all honesty this was simply a very bad matchup for you. Turns is a deck that attempts to combo off with extra turn spells and win via an awakened Card: Part the Waterveil. The early turns of the game it denies you mana and a deck like prison that needs ample mana has a hard time beating it.

  • vs. G/W Ramunap Death & Taxes 0-2

Another personal deck and one I have worked on extensively, essentially the deciding factor was D&T's ability to land a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, when that happened the deck was fast enough to close out the game before your deck could set up through the tax. Game two got caught behind the Ramunap Excavator and Ghost Quarter lock and couldn't really do anything.

  • vs. Bant Eldrazi 2-1

Against a tiered Bant Eldrazi deck the deck performed like I hoped it would perform. Midrange decks should always be your best matchups and that is what Bant Eldrazi is. Game one beat down with Angels from Luminarch Ascension, game two Bant Eldrazi got a nut draw where they were playing everything early thanks Eldrazi Temple. Game three was kind of funny, I was able to play 3 Sphere of Safety in succession and watched them grow; this followed by well timed removal in the form of Path to Exile on Drowner of Hope (opponent could blink it with Eldrazi Displacer and create scions to try to pay the tax) as well as a Detention Sphere on the scions, was able to close out the game. Won via Celestial Colonnade.

So there is a few matchups done, again as I find time I'll continue to test.

Spirits on Kaalia's Flying Circus

Hi Venom_Pistachio,

I know Tunnel Vision is the standard combo with Vessel of Endless Rest but that is . You have quite a few mana rocks in there, but it does make the any color mana for you. I assume your trying to hard cast / Quicksilver Amulet, which is a little different that my Kaalia of the Vast build where I try and cheat them in (rarely cast, sometime unburial Animate Dead/Reanimate), using Swiftfoot Boots and Dragon Tempest and Steelshaper's Gift to pull Lightning Greaves to my hand.

Do you find Strionic Resonator useful in this build? You have 18 targets that she can cast, assuming you hard cast Restoration Angel and Emancipation Angel that leaves 16, I find in my build with 22 targets, sometimes I don't even have an A/D/D in my hand to play, let alone 2. I would increase my A/D/D count to really utilize it, but I haven't play tested it so you may find that it does work.

I really like all the new powerhouse A/D/D you've got in there now!

Authority of the Consuls is definitely one of your weaker cards now, no one blocks the A/D/D and you protect Kaalia of the Vast but she has Flying so already has build in block evasion (+Maze of Ith, etc). Reconnaissance is good for this too, and it can pull back the A/D/D you drop in as well if needed, like flying into a Vampire Nighthawk or something.

Everything is solid though, it's a good build. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is an awesome card, but I would rather have a Swiftfoot Boots or another draw like Bloodgift Demon over her trying to slow others down, plus she makes your mana rocks more expensive, even a Silverblade Paladin i would prefer over her.

Spirits, thanks so much for the suggestions!

A lot of the changes I was looking at are along the same lines. Some of the cards you've identified are hold-overs for something better, so these suggestions help.

Regarding Vessel of Endless Rest, it's in here as a budget manarock, but I don't necessarily know what it combos with. Open to suggestions on that regard if it fits with this deck.

I'm also thinking of dropping Authority of the Consuls for Thalia, Guardian of Thraben at some point, same mana for more value.
