Venser, the Sojourner Discussion

Icbrgr on Venser: Wishful Blinking

4 days ago

@Lowenstein I own this deck in paper and MOST decks in my meta are creature-heavy aggro based decks. Wall of Omens does a great job slowing them down in the early game and Stonehorn Dignitary + Venser, the Sojourner shuts them down from attacking altogether. With help from Coiling Oracle this combo goes online as early as T4.

To protect this combo I use Eerie Interlude to "counter target/mass creature removal." Wishing for Privileged Position/Sigarda, Heron's Grace/Dovescape is the long term plan for noncreature protection. thats why mainboarding Disallow isnt ideal for me because im more interested in the situational aspect of countering an activated/triggered ability than a counterspell in general... Glittering Wish/whishboard is more about Game 2 to tutor for an answer/tool to shut down the opponents Win condition and or shut down their answer to disrupting my combo. so thats why i opted for Voidslime.

Path to Exile is a great card but i have a hard time justifying it in here due to this decks effectiveness/consistency of shutting down the creature game. the opponent can theoretically use Through the Breach to cheat in Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and it straight up doesnt matter with a turn 3 or 4 Stonehorn Dignitary play. I use Detention Sphere as my hasty removal or even better Venser, the Sojourner + Reality Acid to have the opponent sac targetable permanents for every blink activation.... if need be wishing for Supreme Verdict is an option.

entheogeneral on my first super friend deck

1 week ago

I'm not a nice person but I want more people to be dicks to eachother by playing Superfriends. It really depends on your price range. I always find that blue and blue-multicolored really works for 'walkers, like Venser, the Sojourner, Tezzeret the Seeker ,Jace, Architect of Thought, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Narset Transcendent. Good blue support cards: Deepglow Skate, Cyclonic Rift, Thrummingbird,Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

As for green and greenish planeswalkers: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Steward of Elements, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, maybe either Kiora, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Unyielding and Vengeant (the ones you already have), Xenagos, the Reveler, Vraska the Unseen, Sarkhan Vol, Garruk Relentless  Flip, Samut, the Tested, Oath of Nissa, and Primal Vigor.

As for White: Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura, Ajani Steadfast, any Elspeth, Oath of Gideon, Djeru, With Eyes Open and the other non-planeswalker white spells (which you seem to have covered), and Nahiri, the Harbinger.

As for Red: none of them. Fuck red. All the Chandras but the new one don't appeal to me and you should only splash red.

And last (but certainly not least); BLACK: Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Kaya (if you wanna be bitchy), Sarkhan the Mad, Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess and Liliana, Death's Majesty, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Oath of Liliana, and that one black removel spell that proliferates.

And as for three colors and colorless: Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Rings of Brighthearth, Contagion Engine, and maybe even Throne of Geth.

Sorry for how unorganized this is, don't give none. Good luck on pissing all your friends off until they get sick of you then you sell all the 'walkers and buy Eldrazi Tribal and they don't invite you to parties 'n all... And about your deck, my advice would be too follow the above suggestions and try to lower the mana-curve.

passascats on Casual Allies Budget Deck

1 week ago

If you are looking to do this on a budget, I'd look at more copy creatures and token effects, and replace some of the less good allies in the deck. Cards like Rite of Replication, Clone, or even Dack's Duplicate can give you the Ally synergy without running mediocre cards.
Also, a few more flicker effects can go a long way. Crystal Shard, Ghostly Flicker and maybe even running a Venser, the Sojourner could help.
You could also run Arcane Adaptation. This will let even non ally creatures trigger your ally boons!
What your looking for is more consistency in a deck like this. It's easy to get lost in a five color deck like this, so think about your most powerful interactions and how to have them happen more frequently. Slowly trim the fat and you'll have a beast of a deck in no time. I would focus on a three color pie with 2 color splash.As you start to invest more in cards, look at things like Door of Destinies or Coat of Arms which can be huge boost in tribal decks like this.
Good Luck!

Hey, aren't the Oaths pretty good with all the Planeswalkers? Oath of Nissa (color fixing for mana/potentially find a Walker) and Oath of Gideon (gives them more loyalty/creatures to protect) as stand outs.

The Avg. CMC here is 4.35 this is very high with not much ramp. If you want to be more competitive I recommend decreasing this avg a lot so you can play more spells earlier in the game. I understand that most of the high avg CMC is coming from the high mana cost Walkers which is fine, but then treat the Walkers as the top end here all the other cards used to support these Walkers should be less mana.

Honestly I think you're playing too many Walkers I would start by cutting some of the least needed ones: Saheeli Rai, Dovin Baan, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Venser, the Sojourner, Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast, Kaya, Ghost Assassin, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Tezzeret the Seeker , etc. Replace them with more two drop ramp: Signets, Farseek and Nature's Lore can both fetch a dual land.

Overwhelming Splendor and Obliterate cost too much I would replace them with four drop board wipes: Wrath of God and Supreme Verdict. Planar Bridge also costs too much I would replace it with Vampiric Tutor.

You have no early game draw. You're playing a lot of fetch lands because of this I would add Brainstorm and Ponder. I would also add Enlightened Tutor because it can fetch Doubling Season.

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice's proliferate as well as being a big creature with a lot of abilities which can take advantage of some Walker's abilities such as Tamiyo, Field Researcher seems good here.

Good luck with your deck.


Darkite on Stall Till Time is Called *Competitive*

1 month ago

Thank you so very much for helping with the deck, I've been waiting for some helpful feedback! The current land base is in early access, hence why it cannot support emrakul. As to the inclusion of planeswalkers, I currently run Ashiok, but am considering Venser, the Sojourner. Both exile cards, while Venser, assuming I add minions that have synergy with him (such as Stonehorn Dignitary), can stall very well. I know i should drop the damage prevention spells, but they are partly the theme of the deck, as sucky as it is. I was going to add some card draw, but during the creation of the deck, I couldn't really find a place to put it, that is untill now.

KIngWiggins on H: Final-ish List of Needed ...

After a bunch of trades from you great people, I have a lot less cards I need to pseudo-complete my commander decks (as I believe they are never truly complete). Nevertheless, here are cards I need to complete-ish the 3 decks:

Superfriends:
Gideon, Champion of Justice
Garruk, Apex Predator
Koth of the Hammer (prefer original art, will accept either)
Venser, the Sojourner (prefer original art, will accept either)
Silent Arbiter
Full Art Foil Amonkhet/Hour Island, Forest, Mountain, Swamp
(Also need random fetches)

Vamps
Yahenni, Undying Partisan
Anointed Procession
Vampire Nocturnus
Indulgent Aristocrat
Mer-Ek Nightblade
Skullclamp
Cathars' Crusade

Other:
Indentured Djinn
Hunted Wumpus
Charmed Griffin

I am also willing to look at binders for filler/other wants if I have anything you would like.

I have my Binder and unlisted stuff if need be.

Fuzz_ on Multiple end step triggers resolutions

Both Venser, the Sojourner and Conjurer's Closet triggers go on the stack at the same time. You wouldn't be able to target Djeru, With Eyes Open with Conjurer's Closet's ability because Djeru, With Eyes Open would not be on the battlefield. Conjurer's Closet's ability would be countered with no target (unless you have other targets)
