Wall of Reverence Discussion

I am just getting back into playing MtG Commander only, and I am not quite sure how to aid you in your deck building. Try Wall of Reverence for a Flying Wall that has minor shenanigans.

Rhox Faithmender is a must for lifegain decks. Either that or the Ajani's Pridemate/Wall of Reverence combo.

I removed Venser's Journal just before you commented, lol. As for Wall of Reverence and Rest for the Weary, I'd have to agree that those look like great additions.

Wall of Reverence works very well with Ajani's Pridemate. Plus I would favour Rest for the Weary over Angel's Mercy. Not really sure why you have Venser's Journal in there thoguh. You're not drawing an excessive amount of cards and there are much cheaper and better ways of gaining life.

I guess the idea behind the Wall of Reverence + Wall of Limbs is that I have enough individual cases of life gain between creatures and artifacts to really ramp up Wall of Limbs or Bloodbond Vampire or Ajani's Pridemate at a fair pace... especially since i'm gaining life on every players turn and not just my own. So being able to have one of them rather large and using Wall of Reverence + Sanguine Bond or Defiant Bloodlord It's a lot of incremental damage throughout the game. Granted relying on the right cards is entirely luck based because I don't have ways of fishing my deck. I was hoping with all the life-gain defenders it would make an opponent a little more hesitant to attack and give me the turns i need to get the deck going but I haven't been able to test this against any competitive players, just casual and friendly games among friends.

I like the idea of Feeding Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim with some sort of token gen. I actually never even thought of that. I'll have to check that out a little further! And I might actually have Phyrexian Reclamation or similar cards, i'll look into playing around with some of these as well =)

Thank you for your advice! I'll play around with some of the ideas presented and let you know how it goes!!! =)

I'm not sure from your phrasing, but with Wall of Reverence + Wall of Limbs (or Bloodbond Vampire, or Ajani's Pridemate), those creatures grow at only a single +1/+1 counter for each lifegain event, regardless of how much life you gain. So Nyx-Fleece Ram is just as useful to them as Wall of Reverence, and Rhox Faithmender is utterly useless. Compare the wording on those creatures and Cradle of Vitality.

I'd recommend adding some repeatable token generation, such as Ophiomancer, so you have something to feed your commander (or any of the other various sac outlets). Otherwise you have to lose creatures you would prefer to keep alive.

I'd also recommend adding some recursion, such as Phyrexian Reclamation, so you can get back anything which dies.

I don't see much in the way of draw either, so once your hand is played out you're going to be top-decking, which is never a good position.

It depends on your playgroup, but in my group, games usually end by turn 15. Reaching turn 30-35 is unheard of. We regularly have games end by 5 or 6 (proper 3-5 player games too, none of that 1v1 nimbly bimbly), and have (very rarely) had wins as early turn 3-4 (which theoretically could have been turn 2-3, given better starting hand).

Kor Haven swapped for Maze of Ith, Seraph Sanctuary swapped for Command Beacon , Lotus Vale could just go in for a plains, Windbrisk Heights swapped for Arcane Lighthouse.

I commonly play Malignus in many of my decks and Kor Haven won't work on him. People might also be running Leyline of Punishment, which would just turn off Kor Haven. Maze of Ith is just strictly better. If your enemy creatures have hexproof or shroud, then Arcane Lighthouse gets around that.

Your Seraph Sanctuary doesn't do much unless you can make infinite angel tokens or something. If you want to gain life, go with Wall of Reverence and a Serra Avatar ; double you life every turn, or Celestial Mantle.

Nothing says 'your ass is mine' like Serra Ascendant! Divinity of Pride and Wall of Reverence work also!
