Wall of Reverence Discussion

TitanWalls on Green/White Budget - Lifegain

1 week ago

My favorite deck works along these lines. Consider Wall of Reverence and Ageless Entity. Also good for lifegain is Predator's Rapport and Sheltering Word for lifegain/creature protection. Also ridiculous for the theme is Behemoth Sledge or Unflinching Courage. A few other good or interesting options: Rhox Faithmender/Alhammarret's Archive, Well of Lost Dreams, Serra Ascendant (though that breaks the budget) and Lone Rider  Flip.

Abres_Tenelles on Karlov exiles you from his land

2 weeks ago

Nice list!

You could add Suture Priest as another soul sister.

Sun Droplet could be very handy for extra life gain triggers and Well of Lost Dreams can turn it into cards too.

Finally Serra Avatar is expensive to cast, but combos perfectly with Wall of Reverence

KylerStar on We're going to build a wall ($35)

Very susceptible to Control. Just gotta keep the walkers, Vent Sentinel, and Wall of Reverence off the board. Then, once stabilization has been met, drop a board wipe into White Sun's Zenith.

Wakestone Gargoyle and Always Watching may have a home in this deck.

PartyJ on Karlov the vaultron experiment

Hi!

Welcome on T/O!

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with THIS deck the most of the time. An upvote is always nice to recieve :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help you out.

Cheers,

PJ

This list could use another mana rock or two. I definitely suggest Pristine Talisman as a synergistic way to both ramp and trigger your commander.

Sunscorch Regent is incredible in this list since its ability triggers often in a multiplayer setting, and the lifegain will make Karlov explode in size quickly.

Tymna the Weaver turns all that extra life into lots of card draw, and obviously also takes advantage of a multiplayer setting.

Nyx-Fleece Ram is quite a decent blocker in the early game while also buffering your life total and consistently triggering Karlov.

I second the suggestion of adding Drana's Emissary; the more life pings you stack, the more cumulative the bonuses.

Radiant Fountain is a land with the cheap effect of gaining a life when it enters.

Well of Lost Dreams is another card advantage engine that will always keep your hand refilled so long as you keep gaining life.

Wall of Reverence is similar to Nyx-Fleece Ram in that it is a wall that consistently gains you life.

Rogue's Passage should be included in the case that your commander gets so big that he can just kill off someone with straight commander damage.

Traveler247 on Life Swap - Life Steal

I used your deck to playtest against for the last hour or so and I have a few suggestions (I'll put some playtest notes at the bottom if you're interested). Overall, I think your cards could be more impactful, and I think you need more artifact ramp. You should also add a bit of graveyard hate. I notice that the deck cost is fairly low, so I'll keep my suggestions relatively budget friendly.

Ramp: Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Druidic Satchel, Darksteel Ingot, Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Wayfarer's Bauble, Dreamscape Artist. I would consider adding all of these cards, they will make your deck MUCH faster.

Card Draw: Fact or Fiction, Sphinx's Revelation, Deep Analysis, Recurring Insight, Greed, Bloodgift Demon

Board Wipes: Decree of Pain, Merciless Eviction, Day of Judgment, Terminus

Counterspells: Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Dissipate, Disallow, Faerie Trickery, Dismiss, etc.

Removal: Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Mortify, Tragic Slip, etc.

Graveyard Hate: Bojuka Bog, Tormod's Crypt, Relic of Progenitus, Agent of Erebos

Tutors: Increasing Ambition, Fabricate (Well of Lost Dreams is amazing in your deck)

Final dump that I'm too lazy to organize: Phyrexian Reclamation, Drogskol Reaver, Tainted Sigil, Phyrexian Arena, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Wall of Reverence, Defiant Bloodlord, Cliffhaven Vampire, Crypt Ghast, Ashen Rider, Beacon of Immortality, Dig Through Time, Fumigate, Chalice of Life  Flip, Sun Droplet


Cuts:

Archangel of Tithes - Too much white, and your mana base isn't great.

Augury Adept - Too easy to block. Far too often this card does nothing.

Bloodbond Vampire - It gets big. Eventually. This is too slow.

Exalted Angel - This is 6 mana for a 4/4 flying lifelink. That is just bad.

Indulgent Tormentor - In EDH, paying the life is too easy.

Mourning Thrull - Uh...yeah. Doesn't really do anything. Change to ramp.

Resolute Archangel - High Cost, and if you're losing, this is not going to make you win except in VERY particular circumstances.

Seraph of Dawn - This is bad.

Tithe Drinker - There are better extort cards, and it's otherwise underwhelming.

Underworld Coinsmith - Slow and low impact.

Ruinous Path - Sorcery Speed.

Entreat the Angels - If this wins you the game, it's be a miracle (hehe). For real though, there are WAY better end game cards. check out

Storm Herd.

Moonsilver Spear - This is OK. It's slow, it makes tokens. I want every card in a deck to make me smile when I draw it, and this card just makes me go, "Ah, I see."

Steel of the Godhead - This is just kinda OK. Only creature to put it on is Oloro.

Sunbond - Slow and opens you up to being 2 for 1ed.

Sunspring Expedition - If you are going to play a card that only gains you life, it needs to gain you a lot of life. 8 is not a lot of life.

Glimpse the Sun God - could be Curse of the Swine or many other better cards.

Pulse of the Fields - If an opponent has more life, you're doing something wrong.

Riot Control - Unless this card is great in your meta, it just doesn't belong is most decks. You should be controlling the field enough that this card doesn't do anything.

Samite Ministration - See above.

To the Slaughter - Yes, it can kill a planeswalker. But other than that, most people have a little shit creature they don't care about that they can sacrifice, and this costs 3 mana.

Anyway, I hope deckbuilding goes well! It looks like your building a fun deck. Cheers!


Playtest notes: I playtested against Reaper King stars in MTG: The Clone Wars. Obviously, mine is a MUCH more expensive and tuned deck, so it should win. I chose your deck despite the obvious mismatch because I'm getting some buddies into EDH and I wanted to make a deck that was powerful but didn't overwhelm them. Your deck seemed to roughly match the budget of what they'll be building. Overall, Reaper King lost one game and won three. The loss involved you getting an Elspeth and enough removal to protect her. The wins were mostly because of a lack of graveyard hate, not enough removal, threats that weren't very threatening, and mana issues. I think the mana issues deal was largely a luck thing, as you play enough lands, but some ramp would really smooth that out.

TitanWalls on Hey Sista Soul Sista

As others have said, this deck isn't Standard legal, but it's usable in Modern format. I've got a similar mono-white lifegain deck if you'd like to take a look for inspiration Soul-less lifegain V2. In general, I'd recommend you drop the Spirit Link, lose one Felidar Sovereign and Ajani, Caller of the Pride (he doesn't contribute much to lifegain), and consider including Serra Ascendant, or one of my personal favorites Wall of Reverence. Lastly, Well of Lost Dreams is mana-expensive and a little impractical, but in the right circumstances it's the best card you can have in a lifegain deck, so maybe consider 1-2 of that as well.
