Village Bell-Ringer Discussion
1 week ago
@Rabid_Wombat most of the utilities are combo pieces I just haven’t had the time to list them separately yet. I need the ramp to combo off. This is just one of many examples, but let’s say I have Cloudstone Curio, Axebane Guardian, and Village Bell-Ringer along with a few other creatures(minimum of 4). I could make infinite mana by bouncing the Bell ringer with cloudstone and recasting it untapping the axebane. That’s probably even my worst combo I have in here too.
@oniboy I said in the description I don’t have a mana base yet and that those are just cards in my color I had off the top of my head. Also, I’m over 100 cards because not all the cards listed will make the final cut which I haven’t made yet, so that’s why there’s some questionable card choices here and there. I don’t know what direction I want to take the deck in yet and I need help figuring that out. I know I don’t need that many counters, those are just the ones I was considering making the cut lol.
Thanks for the feedback both of you! - BlackyMTG

So the immediate problem I see is that you're trying to run legendary and non-legendary cards together as a theme, while I think it can work just fine, it'll be very difficult to fit a tertiary theme, and it will be finicky sometimes because they will kinda of grind against each other. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker only works with non-legendary creatures. If you get a few non-legendary creatures out with Jalira, Master Polymorphist and have Heroes' Podium it's going to feel kind of bad, but it'll feel pretty good to have a it with a bunch of legends. Mirari's Wake might fit better for you.
SO relatively, I only added white pretty recently and I only have 5 white cards. Felidar Guardian because it's basically twin combo with Saheeli Rai, but also works with Kiki-Jiki, Restoration Angel I view as a protection spell that just happens to work with Kiki-Jiki. Tamiyo, Field Researcher (combos with Doubling Season and is good value), Anointed Procession (more Doubling Season/Parallel Lives effects), and Teferi's Protection (should be in every deck that can run it as it protects from Cyclonic Rift).
So if I hadn't changed this deck recently I could probably use some of your ideas and then I'd put in Village Bell-Ringer but I don't actually have a reason to just untap most creatures for just value if I need to, having only 5 creatures with Untap abilities anymore, and they are more just either combos themselves or combo protection. Say if I have Tidewater Minion and Kiora's Follower and I go to combo off with Minion and someone just Doom Blade's it I can use Follower to untap Minion and then just float literally billions of mana, here I could use Village Bell-ringer and it'd be the same thing, but Kiora's Follower can untap land for me as well, Bell-ringer can't normally, for me. So if you have more activated abilities Bell-ringer will work for you, and I'd also recommend Thousand-Year Elixir and Illusionist's Bracers if you're not already running them.
I don't play cards that can give my opponents value. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis is the only thing I run basically just for colors. I have to be in a tight spot in order to actually cast it, and it should be a partner commander combination but I had been at such a loss of what even to take out of the deck in order to get a partner combination in here. So I don't play cards like Selvala, Explorer Returned because she gives too much value to opponent's, and again I don't even play K&T unless I have to and I'd rather have partner commanders.
Just make sure all your Twin combo targets can do other things, like, I don't run Breaching Hippocamp because it doens't provide enough for me, while others like Zealous Conscripts can just take someone's Planeswalker and ult them or someone else's kiki-jiki and win, I've used Deceiver Exarch to tap down Blightsteel Colossus and prevent an attack. Interactions.

I really like this list. I'd give a little consideration to Druid's Deliverance Sundering Growth Alive // Well Rhys the Redeemed Second Harvest Wayfaring Temple and Hooded Hydra and Triumph of the Hordes but you have most of the good stuff there.
When you choose to run green, you need to look at the tools and synergies it opens up- Most G/W token lists I've seen have been splinter-twin esque Village Bell-Ringer/Presence of Gond combo lists ruinning Glittering Wish. Certainly, a light combo subtheme is very much an option with the variety of token-combo tools in green, taking advantage of Chord of Calling and Sprout Swarm

Yisan line requires some mana but a Bloom Tender can fix that on 2. Anyways. 2 is anything preferably tendies. 3 is Village Bell-Ringer. Untap Yisan. 4 is Felidar Guardian, blink Bell-Ringer. 5 is Kiki.
Wheel refills combo players who will get a lot more mileage out of it than you. We deny resources and Wheel refills.

Run Splinter Twin and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, they both go infinite phases with Celebrant. You can also add Zealous Conscripts and Village Bell-Ringer if you want more infinite: it's a great way to end the game quick and it has a lot of answers so people can shut their mouths. You aren't getting the full power out of Alms Collector without running Wheel of Fortune and it's clones: they are the best draw Boros has, and people get upset with the discard alone, but stopping their draw is pure salt.

Village Bell-Ringer does, indeed, combo with Kiki. As a matter of fact, the Yisan line tutors Village Bell-Ringer into Kiki-Jiki. My removal of Bell-Ringer doesn't mean that I don't think the line of play is good. However, I played a game over this weekend where I pulled all of my secondary combo pieces (Felidar Guardian/Pestermite/Restoration Angel/Village Bell-Ringer) and no gas. The entire time I was thinking, "Man, I really wish that this Bell-Ringer was the Imperial Recruiter I just traded for." Bell-Ringer is a card I will definitely revisit again, but my list is getting closer and closer to where I want it to be.
As for Eldrazi Displacer, that card has gotten me out of so many stalls during the end game that it is insane. I value Displacer's ability to reuse ETB triggers or tap troublesome creatures down. I like Displacer (and Thought-Knot) so much that I'm using the filter lands to ensure that I have colorless sources of mana. I would add painlands, but I'm very aggressive with my fetching of lands.
