Westvale Abbey Discussion
1 day ago
I ended up opting for Whisper, Blood Liturgist and Avacyn, Angel of Hope rather than Whip of Erebos, but I'll admit it was ultimately a thematic descision; they just seemed to be a better fit with the other cards I was working with: Whisper with Athreos, and Avacyn with Kaalia.
As far as the lands go, I am a little nervous about having lands that don't tap for black mana, simply because the cards I'll be casting from my hand are pretty limited to 4 artifacts, 6 enchantments, and 38 Shadowborn Apostles. Because of this, getting a land early on that does not tap for black mana can drastically reduce the speed at which I play and sac Apostles.
Buuuuuut I'll admit that both of these look far more promising than the Opal Palace I've got now, so I'm definitely making a change! Westvale Abbey Flip doesn't really have anything for me, as I've already got plenty of clerics and at a much more comfortable cost, and the Demon it transforms into is powerful, but otherwise boring. Vault of the Archangel, however, needs to be in my deck immediately! Being able to extend lifelink to my non-angel creatures and introduce deathtouch to my already crippling battlefield presence is just too good to pass up! #AddingItNow

Second is what about a flip card like Shidako, Broodmistress does it copy as the broodmistress or as Orochi Eggwatcher if it was attached while as the broodmistress? What if it was originally on the eggwatcher but the eggwatcher was flipped?

Because you run 4 Chords, that makes your sideboard very versatile. The 4 CoCos help as well. Good sideboard choices are Melira, Sylvok Outcast for infect, Phyrexian Revoker, and Viscera Seer for living end. Scavenging Ooze is also a good card against graveyard decks generally. You really only need 1 of these because of your Chords and CoCos. Damping Sphere is a great sideboard card as well, but you need several of it to ensure you actually draw it. I personally like to have a single copy of Westvale Abbey Flip because it can be useful. Your mainboard is pretty good, which is why I've been making suggestions for your sideboard. I'd suggest getting rid of some of your out-of-place singles in favor of completing your playsets, which is where the power of the deck really comes from.

up to 4xBlade Splicer - tokens+First Strike
By T3-T4, there's a decent chance you're going to start running low on cards - some sort of draw card is going to be useful, and Harmonize is probably the best budget-minded option.
4xSundering Growth - artifact/enchantment removal+Populate

Since this deck plays so few creatures, I feel like Lethal Vapors can be a good inclusion.

agree with most of what you said. Scooze is a great card and usually use it in the side. Prob will be main in a lot of builds with everything going on with the GY love of a lot of decks, but was curious of your meta. I play Steel Leaf in that spot because i think its just better vs what friends are playing now so just a suggestion.
As for Westvale Abbey Flip i completely disagree with it being a trap. Have had 5 creatures on the field plenty of times without being able to advance the board and it just wins the games. its a 9/7 flyer indestructible with haste. Yes the cards you said def hurt but usually when you get it out your going to win that turn or be wiped either way.
