Firstmiracle on Wall-I

4 months ago

Hey dude, thought I'd comment it on here.

So let's round out my observations before we move to my opinions.

Win Conditions you have included are: Rolling Stones , Assault Formation , Wakestone Gargoyle , Vent Sentinel and Dragonshift. Of those, Wakestone doesn't really have a way to go off unless another win con is already out. So Wakestone + 1 or Vent Sentinel and Dragonshift are the only current ways to win a game.

Subthemes Detected:

Lifegain- Jaddi Offshoot , Perimeter Captain , Wall of Essence. All decent lifegain, Jaddi is good early, Perimeter is good mid, and Wall of essence is good all game, but particularly mid.

Tokens- Coral Barrier , Hornet Nest , Golden Guardian  Flip , Sprouting Phytohydra , Dragon Fodder , Parallel Lives , Kiora, the Crashing Wave. Coral Barrier does provide an evasion creature, and 1/1's with evasion are often under-rated. Hornet nest is great if you can keep it alive, and okay if it dies. Golden Guardian is an okay card if you can get some tokens out of it, but it doesn't die to anything in your deck right now. Sprouting Hydra is probably the best token card in this deck as it lines up with all of your themes, it has serious potential for combos. Dragon fodder doesn't belong here. Swap it out for a late game threat like Vigor for wall wins, or Luminarch Ascension if you plan to keep the token theme. Parallel lives is at best okay in this deck, if you had more than 10 things that made tokens, I would say its definitely important. Kiora is an okay planeswalker but I'll talk about her in a second.

Ramp- Ok so there's not enough of it. Overgrown Battlement , Ulvenwald Captive  Flip , Sol Ring, Cryptolith Rite. Commander games are won by casting several cards in a turn. Firm believer that if you have green, you run green ramp. Period. Bonus, Ulvenwald Captive is terrible ramp.

Card Draw- You're covered here. I think you have enough card draw.

Planeswalkers- Special Note, I think Kiora is a fun planeswalker, but she's not amazing in this deck. It'd be better to see something like Ajani Goldmane , or Elspeth, Sun's Champion for added tokens, boardwipes, and counters, as well as their emblems enable your win conditions.

Ok so now I'll start by suggesting things you could add to this deck.

Wall of Denial - My favorite Wall.

Tree of Redemption - Can get ugly dude. 0/40 is kinda great in a lifegain deck.

Kodama's Reach - good solid ramp.

Cultivate - Same as above.

Comet Storm - You have ramp, play a ramp board clear.

Kindred Summons - Pick wall.

Fireball - Very versatile in rampy decks.

Vandalblast - You have red, you need good artifact hate.

Supreme Verdict - Favorite Board Wipe

Wrath of God - AKA the Reset Button

Azorius Signet - Ramp

Izzet Signet - Ramp

Aetherflux Reservoir - Can become a win condition (that can be fetched with fabricate) if you have a strong life gain game.

Ajani Goldmane - Can combo with some win cons, has good passive benefits from behind the army of walls.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion - Same reasons as Ajani, but can also board clear creatures with 3 or greater power, so not your walls.

Now we move on to cards I suggest removing.

Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip - Dead weight. You will never want to pay mana for this ability, and if you do you are definitely losing it to removal. Not worth the investment.

Murmuring Phantasm - It's not bad, it just doesn't provide an additional benefit. You could find a better card for sure.

Ulvenwald Captive  Flip - By the time you have 7 mana to pay for the ability you are already playing your better cards. Just put in a bigger late game threat.

Golden Guardian  Flip - Only remove this if you elect not to add several 4 power or greater creatures to the deck.

Abrade - Swap for better removal. I suggest Comet Storm, or Vandalblast.

Arcane Denial - I'd personally trade it for a dozen other draw spells. Opt or Brainstorm or Ancestral Vision if you got it.

Lightning Helix - Okay so IDK what this is in here for. Its a good card in a tempo deck. You can do bigger and better with 2 mana. Play the long game.

Tower Defense - I'll admit, this can rarely win a game. However, Vigor Will just win you the game.

Ghostway - Looks okay with EtB triggers. Is good against boardwipe, but honestly, you have walls. They probably won't die that often, and if they do, you won't be bouncing more than 2-3 back to your hand. Is that honestly worth holding up 3 mana?

Colfenor's Urn - Maybe I don't understand the benefit. Run something like Sun Titan.

Parallel Lives - Get to the 10+ token generators, and this card is waaaaaaay better. As it stands now you may get 2-4 extra tokens in a game, if you draw it.

Hey there! Sweet deck! I have a few pieces of advice for you:

In any case, I hope this helps! Good luck!

eyes2sky Hey, that is a good idea! I was running the Consulate Skygate because Alpha/Beta versions of this deck were three colors. However, running Ulvenwald Captive  Flip is one less trigger for Distant Melody being as it's not a wall. However, your suggestion makes me believe I may go ahead and swap out the Skygate's with Wall of Roots. It's a Wall, so it helps Distant Melody, a bigger Butt, and I can gain value from that green mana by throwing a -1/-1 on it the turn it enters. It was a card I was debating about when I was making this Pauper, but, as I said, Skygate won because three color was stretching my early turns.

Looks good! +1...Consider moving Consulate Skygate to your side-board and in its place try Ulvenwald Captive  Flip. It's added ramp plus it's a great way to spend your excess mana if you haven't found your win-con yet.

Thanks for the feedback.

Most of my werewolves aren't actually human so I am not sure Moonmist and Immerwolf would be too helpful, but i think i will get some to play around with. Geier Reach Bandit  Flip is what i use to accelerate and Waxing Moon to flip it or others after i have Vildin-Pack Alpha. I already am planning on getting Rootbound Crag but i don't think i can justify the others as I don't play too competitively. Ulvenwald Captive  Flip i am pretty iffy on, but i had some to fill out and was thinking of dropping them for something else? Wolfkin Bond i may get rid of, and reduce some of my other creatures to get some Springsage Ritual and Prey Upon to get rid of troublesome permanents.
