Thalia's Lancers Discussion
1 day ago
In the control archetype the main focus should be disruption, removal, and most importantly card advantage.
You want many fewer creatures, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Noxious Gearhulk, and Walking Ballista are basically the only ones you want. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is a good creature too, so maybe two copies. Possibly one Thalia's Lancers. Otherwise this deck needs planeswalkers and removal. A playset of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, two or three Liliana, the Last Hope, probably one Ob Nixilis Reignited, and a Sorin, Grim Nemesis. The best card-draw in these colors is Painful Truths assuming you also run Aether Hub. There is also Metalspinner's Puzzleknot and Succumb to Temptation but the only upside is that one is 2 mana and the other is an instant. I'd stick to Painful Truths. Four copies of whatever you decide to use, of course.
You need good single-target removal both early and late-game. Fatal Push is something you will want probably two of since you cannot trigger it's revolt. Declaration in Stone is the most efficient all-game removal so 4 seems good. You will also want to try one or two copies of Collective Brutality because it is so versatile in every match-up. Anguished Unmaking is strictly better than Murder, Grasp of Darkness is almost a catch-all early on. You will want some number of each, 2 Unmakings is probably all you will want though. Finally one or two Fumigates.
The sideboard will need answers to other controlling decks, non-creature permanents, strategies that flood the board, and be able to disrupt or respond to the known combos in the format.
I recommend more Collective Brutality, another Ob Nixilis Reignited, and Transgress the Minds to deal with control. Possibly Kambal, Consul of Allocation. If they are doing the Felidar Guardian combo you may need something along the lines of Encircling Fissure or Make Obsolete. In aggressive match-ups you will want Linvala, the Preserver and Yahenni's Expertise (which is a good argument for running some Succumb to Temptation or Puzzleknot instead of only Painful Truths) or more Grasp of Darkness. If you're playing against a mid-range opponent you may want Quarantine Field, more Fumigate or a Descend upon the Sinful, maybe Harsh Scrutiny. Finally good non-creature removal is Fragmentize or more Anguished Unmakings.

I'd try to focus on what your best cards are and focus down on that. You have a lot of 1 ofs which means it gets harder to draw any given card. I'd try to pick out which cards you are consistently happy to draw or which nonland cards would you always want in your opening hand and add extra copies of them.
The one caveat to that is be careful about including too many copies of the same legendary creature as you can only have one in play under your control at a time. If you were to decide that say Odric, Lunarch Marshal (just as an example here) was the card you always wanted to have in your hand you could run 2-3 copies of him and then some number of Thalia's Lancers to help you find it.
If you let me know what direction you want to move in I can help you focus down on it, and take out some cards to make room.

Yo Derpachus I'm not trying to advertise my deck man,(or woman) I'm saying that my decklist could have cards that he skimmed over that could be good for his deck for example the gen you said Thalia's Lancers which is in my deck list and he could've found so maybe back off a bit okay?

pickelchu, don't post advertisements on other people's decklists. Not cool, man.
tonybaker26, I love the decklist. A card that might help you out is Thalia's Lancers. It lets you tutor for your 3 legendaries in your deck, plus it lets you play board controlling cards like Thalia, Heretic Cathar to heed the crapload of Saheeli Rai combo decks that are going to be floating around.

Hey, thanks for the comment!
Temur Battle Rage Helps out more with a Voltron strategy. I'm trying to go wide.
Iroas, God of Victory Already lives in the 99.
Strionic Resonator Would be fantastic, if Melee triggered only once. It triggers for every creature that declares an attack, so with 5 tokens, I get 5 triggers and I can only copy one of them.
Again, thanks for the comment!

Looks pretty good, here are a few cards i might consider:
Temur Battle Rage casting this on your commander can kill people out of nowhere. Love this card so much!
Master Warcraft Weird little card, but it can catch someone by supprice and give a huge swing in your favor.
Thalia's Lancers a solid creature and you have enough good targets for it's ability.
Iroas, God of Victory prevents your little guys from being killed in combat
Strionic Resonator: melee is a triggered ability
Hope this helps!

Thalia's Lancers might be a consideration it can fetch Augustin, several angels, and nykthos
I see you are considering Enchanted Evening. Keep in mind that when combined with Starfield of Nyx would cause all your lands to be a 0/0 and immediely be put into the graveyard as a state based action. Just something to be mindful of.

Thalia's Lancers can get good value(can even find the other half of brisela voice of nightmares)
