Minousmancer on Ultimate Mono-B Sorin Theme Deck

Why only 1xsorin?

Sorin Markov

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Sorin, Vampire Lord

Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.

I'd lose one to three Swamp s This is a Mono-Black deck. Mono decks only need 16-18 of their Primary Mana source, this frees up room for either more Spells, Creatures, or Planeswalkers.

Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey  Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.

Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Nice deck, always love me some Elves. It seems like it would be nice to squeeze in a Westvale Abbey  Flip or two, given how easy it is to have both the creature count & mana to transform it in this deck. It might not be necessary to have Unclaimed Territory given that Shaman is the only Elf that has black in its cost, and you're usually not looking to cast that on curve anyways so you should have plenty of time to draw into one of your 12 black lands.

I also feel like you could use a bit more card advantage since there are a handful of cards that you really need to see to win. Garruk, Caller of Beasts is the ideal card advantage engine if you can swing the CMC, but if you want to go a little bit lower on the curve, Vivien Reid can dig deep for high-value creatures as well. Icon of Ancestry is an interesting idea, giving you both a Lord-like anthem effect as well as card advantage when you have spare mana, as Elf decks are prone to.

I playtested a similar beatdown-style Elf deck a while ago for Standard, and I always found Pelt Collector to be a bit of an underperformer, as it's not going to get past 2 power in the early game unless you have a Steel Leaf Champion, so if you're looking for things to remove I would probably start there.

I'd cut Torgaar, Famine Incarnate . He sort of works against Zulaport Cutthroat , as he cleanly sets the opponent's life to 10, denying all the sac triggers. Also leaves Nantuko Husk with less fodder. He's a big beater, but he's very easily blocked and doesn't get hit by Collected Company .

If Westvale Abbey  Flip performs well for you, you should make room for more than one.

Hey Randsome, I'm currently not playing Pioneer. There's definitely many more and much better Elves in Pioneer than in Standard. Shaman of the Pack gives Elves the tribal win condition and a reason to be Golgari. If I decide to play Pioneer then I will definitely change this deck since I've left Standard.

I don't think I will return to Standard for quite a while, if ever, because it's a damn mess, a waste of money and Theros is the next plane we're revisiting. It's one of the few planes in the multiverse that doesn't have Elves. I'm a Commander player now and I don't see that changing because Wizards is supporting Commander a ton next year which I'm very excited about.

If I was playing Pioneer then this is the budget Elves decklist I would play:

Total: $130

AnAnxietyDrivenToad oooh yeah!! Westvale Abbey  Flip is spicey, the lands in the list are really up in the air as I figure out the best combination.

Thanks for the feedback.

No Westvale Abbey  Flip? I play it in my own field of the dead deck and it preforms greatly.

lagotripha on Pioneer GW Convoke Tokens

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.

In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing  Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.

Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.

Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey  Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip

In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.
