Ward of Bones Discussion

manioo8 on "Did you just attack me?" spot removal tribal

Utter End and Chaos Warp are fine additions to my deck. Vindicate is a great card, but it's a sorcery effect, so it can't be included due to being too slow. I'm on the fence about Disallow because most of the time I'd rather allow a threat to enter the battlefield and then remove it if it targets me. It usually doesn't target me. Ward of Bones would be great in this deck, but it'd draw hate as well, and I really can't draw hate in this deck, or the whole political aspect falls apart. Dismember seems great on the surface, but I fear a situation in which it doesn't work because a creature has 6 or more toughness. unconditional removal is the way to go usually. Also it doesn't kill Child of Alara.

Removal suggestions: Utter End, Vindicate, Chaos Warp, Disallow

Ward of Bones since your list is low in permanents this could be brutal

Hey fabiomarley, thanks for the suggestions!

Yeah, my mana ramp how it is here isn't great, but I've updated what's in my deck since I last updated it on here. School's just been keeping me busy, but I'll update this list as soon as I get time.

And I have added cards like Polluted Bonds which is really fun. And I used to have cards like Zo-Zu the Punisher and Ankh of Mishra in here, but I felt that it hurt me a little too much alongside what I already have.

As for cards like Oppression, I have a whole deck based on discard for Mogis if you wanna check it out. It's really fun, and I find discard more effective when that's what the deck is centered around.

But I really like Ward of Bones, so I'll have to check that out!

Thanks again for your feedback!

Tunnel Ignus is a fun gem, Ankh of Mishra is an artifact zo-zu.

then there are cards like Damping Engine, Mana Maze, Ward of Bones type effects

but probably the best way (besides Door to Nothingness effects) is to tax their hand, with cards like Oppression, Pain Magnification, Painful Quandary etc ... limit the usefulness of ramp ... and while MLD like Wake of Destruction can be crippling, mass or targeted removal of rocks and dorks can have a similar effect, while being more useful overall.

StolenVHS on Balan, The Wandering Voltron

I forgot how good Silent Arbiter is. I'll probably have to find a place for him in my Balan deck. Ward of Bones is really neat, and something I'll probably try in my Neheb, the Eternal deck. Holy Mantle and Crackdown were 2 others in particular that wouldn't have crossed my mind, but are awesome inclusions. Check out the equipment base in my Balan deck to see if any of the niche stuff in there tickles your fancy. I tried to put in as many viable haste enablers as possible, like Haunted Cloak (which you have) and Fleetfeather Sandals, so that as soon as Balan comes down he can activate his ability and swing. Some other cards that are great for Balan that aren't in my build yet are Knight Exemplar and Bastion Protector. Sweet build, dude! Glad to see someone else running this dude. He's a house. P.S. Grafted Exoskeleton flat out kills people.

i play a similar deck -> Mogis Festival, but i play less creature and more "stax card". In my opinion, in your deck there are not enough land/manaramp, +1/2 land and +1 Thran Dynamo don't like you? I don't know your meta, but you don't play any counter-measures vs opponent's ramp, for example in my meta there are many deck with (for ex.Omnath, Locus of Rage) so with a deck like Mogis some card are necessary: Polluted Bonds, Stranglehold, Ankh of Mishra, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ward of Bones. Another thing, you could play more cards to control the hands (Oppression, Reforge the Soul) and not for last, Torpor Orb is realy important in this deck, to protect your enchantments from Aura Shards and all other cards with triggering abilities when they enter the battlefield.i hope to have left to you a constructive comment! :) and don't forget to click here -> Mogis Festival <-

I saw your post on my wall. Here are my suggestions...

Prismatic Omen

Doubling Season

Ward of Bones

Demonic Tutor

I would also remove your slow lands for faster one's that don't come into play tapped and that don't require you put a land back to your hand.

I usually don't play outside of 2 colors of EDH, so my suggestions are a bit limited.

Triton on Why Even Bother?

I think Dark Depths can easily be added in for a basic land.

I think Quicksilver Amulet is less fragile than Elvish Piper, while more mana-intensive.

While I do love Sakura-Tribe Elder, I think Azusa can be swapped in since she's also tutorable.

Ward of Bones feels a tad expensive CMC-wise for a stax build, and you have Winter Orb which does a similar thing Vorinclex does for less. However, the latter is tutorable so I think those can be interchanged to your preference.

Hope this helps!
