Thraben Doomsayer Discussion

Thanks coloneldark! Thalia's Lieutenant is a great suggestion for my deck. I will have to check my local card store and see if they have it in stock. I don't know if I considered it for my original deck, but I definitely should have. Which creature should I remove to make room for Thalia's Lieutenant? Thraben Doomsayer or Xathrid Necromancer?

It has the same vulnerability to spot removal as the creatures (unless you enchant a hexproof creature) making removal better as it can 2-for-1 you.

Presence of Gond competes directly with Thraben Doomsayer in my opinion, would you prefer it to him ?

I have a slight preference to the creature as it can be an extra blocker while I'm tryin to complete the combo and is also easier to find as Oath of Nissa only finds creatures/lands.

Alrighty Then

Fist of all, your mana curve is WAY too high for your land base, with this sort of mana cure, you should be at 22 lands at the ABSOLUTE least. Even with a drastically lower curve, you'd still probably need 17 lands at least. Either way, You really shouldn't be running anything over 4 mana.

Here's a list of quick and easy changes.

I don't know if I'm the best person to give advice on what to keep or drop, but I might drop the swords, or even Ajani. The swords are incredibly powerful, but they only buff one creature, whereas Thraben Doomsayer can buff any number of Hero of The Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant while also generating chump blockers. Ajani is great, but not really the focus of the deck, and might be a bit high in mana cost. Another option would be to drop one or two copies of Field Marshal, since most of the soldiers have first strike already.

Also, a couple of options for dealing with Death's Shadow: add in Condemn, which both bounces an attacking Death's Shadow and kills any others because of the resulting lifegain. An instant-speed Rest for the Weary targeting your opponent could also kill a Death's Shadow, and is also a great spell to play on yourself (especially if you pull of Ajani's ultimate). You could include the Lifelink enchantment to buff your own creatures or enchant a Death's Shadow to kill it if it attacks. Spirit Link on an opposing Death's Shadow also works to nullify any damage it does.

Thank you for the feedback. Of the cards you mentioned, Thraben Doomsayer has peaked my interest the most. Any suggestions on what to cut out in place of it?

Thraben Doomsayer looks to be a fun card, especially if your opponent has a heavy hitter, you'll be able to use this as a powerful lord. probably only as a 1 of or 2 of. i would really second Thraben Inspector, you really need more 1 drops in your curve. right now, you're 2 drop heavy. Brave the Elements is really good as well. Nice deck, +1 :)

Two options to generate tokens to buff your creatures are Gather the Townsfolk and Thraben Doomsayer. You could also consider Increasing Devotion, but it's a little on the CMC-expensive side. While the tokens aren't soldiers, they are humans, so they synergize with Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish. The only downside is that the tokens don't synergize with Field Marshal, who targets only soldiers, but all other buffs work on human tokens. Also, Gather the Townsfolk can help you flip Kytheon, Hero of Akros on turn two.

Whoops I did not see that you had the combo with Valor but I still highly recommend Thraben Doomsayer
