Venser, the Sojourner Discussion

Stephencliffe on You never gonna win

Nice idea, but it seems a bit underdeveloped.

Trying to constantly flicker Sun Titan or Snapcaster Mage to protect Gideon probably isn't the best idea. There are other, better ways to keep him around. Sun Titan is a great card, but I would say only run one, maybe two of him.

Venser, the Sojourner isn't great here. Something like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar might work better for you. It'll pressure your opponent, and also works well with new Gideon's emblem.

Aside from that, you have lots of counter magic, but not much card draw. I would take out Cloudshift and a couple Negate, and instead run the fourth Path to Exile and perhaps Jace, Architect of Thought. Sphinx's Revelation is great too, maybe a one or two of.

Aside from that, 23 lands is not enough. A control deck like this should have 26-27 lands. You want to hit your drops every turn for like 10 turns. Can't flashback snap into c-command on only five lands.

Hope I was helpful, good luck!

In my Reaper King (Read it and Reap) deck, I run more flicker spells to really take advantage of Reaper King's ability. Venser, the Sojourner's first ability is amazing in this deck. Deadeye Navigator is great as well. Mistmeadow Witch while expensive, is effective. Panharmonicon is great because it copies the second ability, and also any token doublers (Parallel Lives and that new one from Amonkhet). Spells like Rite of Replication (especially kicked) are great because that is more scarecrows for you.

I don't know what you'd take out but I think Venser, the Sojourner deserves a mention in case you missed him somehow.

This type of deck was actually one of my first Modern decks ever. If you're looking at casual/semi-competitive play, this deck can be pretty powerful. You're already playing some of the best cards in this archetype like Thragtusk, Restoration Angel and Coiling Oracle. This deck tends to struggle against aggressive decks, though, so here's a few good cards you might consider adding that are generally strong.

Wall of Omens draws you a card and gums up the ground in the early game.

Blade Splicer gives you two bodies with a total of 4 power and can get out of hand quick with some blink effects.

Venser, the Sojourner is also a fantastic win condition and can really grind your opponents out. It also wins through stalemates. I played as many as 3 at one point with the deck. Many times you can protect him in the air and on the ground and ultimate, which really closes out the game.

Good luck! :)

davin.baan thanks for your comments! I have all but about 3 cards (lands) of this deck built, but I'm planning on finishing it in the next week or two. which creatures were you talking about that return my creatures to my hand rather than flicker?

Akroma, Angel of Fury is in there for some fun flicker shenanigans. If you cast Akroma for 3 colorless mana, then flicker her at some point, she will come back as her face-up angel side. It's not the greatest interaction, but some decks in the format simply can't answer her. She will often come out in games 2 & 3 because she's not as much of a surprise.

I built this deck to be pretty competitive since I'm going to take it to a couple low-level tournaments, so I'm not sure that Soul Warden, as a 1/1, will provide enough of a board-presence to make the list. Similarly, I don't think Panharmonicon affects the board enough on turn 4 for it to make the cut. I could totally see adding in another Venser, the Sojourner. I actually went back and forth on it. The reason I cut the second Venser is so I could just run 21 lands. With 2 Venser, 21 lands didn't seem like enough, so I cut the Venser.

Seance could be a ton of fun in a more casual deck. I would love to use it in my Ephara EDH deck. I might give it a shot.

Polupus thanks! I was looking at Muddle the Mixture a while ago for the transmute ability, but I must have forgot about it. Thanks for bringing it up!

Glimmerpoint Stag alone doesn't look so great, but when you have the board locked and you can +2 Venser, the Sojourner each turn to flicker the Stag and tap the Sundial, it's pretty satisfying to permanently exile any permanent for essentially 1 mana. But it is definitely not a quick set up.
