Timely Reinforcements Discussion

Darth_Savage on Modern Event Deck EDIT (PLEASE ASSIST)

Some thoughts -

  1. The 2x Dismember in the sideboard should probably be Anguished Unmaking.

  2. Replace Tidehollow Sculler with Timely Reinforcements, you should have enough removal.

  3. Replace 1x Fatal Push with Hero of Bladehold to give a bit more consistency.

  4. Stony Silence in preference to Kataki, War's Wage.

I'm sure you know this, but you do want Godless Shrine over Caves of Koilos. Otherwise the modern event deck was actually fairly decent, though a 4th Inquisition of Kozilek wouldn't go wrong...

I used to run a raise the alarm build for a while until I transitioned to a bitterblossom build. In my experience, you don't need honor the pure to do well. I personally would use it as a flex spot to add some utility cards like Timely Reinforcements Blessed Alliance Anguished Unmaking Collective Brutality any of these would be a useful inclusion in the mainboard. Aside from that, your list looks good except for the wall of omens. Its an interesting idea but I personally feel like its waste of a T2 play. It doesn't give you anything that a token spell wouldn't. I'd replace with another sorin and some of the cards listed earlier.

This Esper Version seems greats because you have more chance to add valuable removal. My only query is have you considered Timely Reinforcements post-sid against burn?

Idk about Timely Reinforcements. It's not a win condition or a control piece, so I don't think you really need it. Jace, Architect of Thought is typically a good card to have in decks like these. Sphinx's Revelation is also good.

Kul4s I do like Glare of Subdual, talk about a limited All Star! But Im not convinced it fits well with this deck...

It does however make me want to build an Abzan "Token Fog" deck! Lol Lingering Souls, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Bitterblossom, Timely Reinforcements, Spectral Procession, Raise the Alarm, Intangible Virtue! Throw in 1-2 Glare of Subdual and lock your opponent OUT. Yes plz!

MindAblaze, absolutely! Do you already have a gameplan in mind, or would you like suggestions for a deck direction from me?

Because either way, I'm assuming that the idea is to flip Kytheon as soon as possible (turn 3-4) and then spam board wipes after activating his 0 or +1 to protect him or other creatures.

If that's the case, you want two other creatures by turn 3-4 to attack with so that he flips. Those creatures will probably die (this is commander, after all), but a worthy sacrifice to get a flipped Kytheon, I think. Activate his +2, and I think 5 loyalty is a good place to be for turn 3-4.

Those two creatures can be two tokens made via a 2-3 drop (4+ drops are too slow!), and I have put them here for your convenience:

Fourteen is what we need, and fourteen is what we can get.
