Whirler Virtuoso Discussion

Ragham on The Nemesis: Netdecker's Nightmare!* 100% WIN RATE

43 minutes ago

Thank you. I test this decklist, as I'm weenie white player and always be happy to see pump spells with evasion, I find this deck really interesting and technical. Siren is really good. Hope of Ghirapur is tough, I mean, great card against counterspell decks and just a 1/1 flyer against other decks (if he kept mana to removal, he will does it when you sac). Skyship Plunderer is here for planeswalker and go crazy with one on table, otherwise 8 targets for energy with only Whirler Virtuoso as main energy enable seems too low for me and not enough impactful so finally it shows more as 2/1 flyer vanilla for me. Maybe include more PW maindeck ? I like the tempo of Aethersphere Harvester but maybe we have a slot here. And I was not happy of Curator of Mysteries each game I played. On sideboard Nimble Obstructionist and Aether Meltdown are weird for me. I would see more counterspells, Abrade, Magma Spray or wrath. So the deck is very great and I think there is some space to improve that list that can be competitive. What do you think about that @Ben4782@ ? Have you think about improve your deck ?

Glad you like the deck! Yeah hand disruption is definitely a reason to play black in a control deck, always a very powerful tool!


I wouldn't say red has better removal over black right now since Fatal Push alone is a reason to run black. Also, black offers hand disruption, which allows you to not worry with hard to deal-with threats and rip answers to your win-cons from their hand. UB also has The Scarab God which is an absurdly good card.

Red does have really good tools obviously, Harnessed Lightning being one of the best removals in standard, and we a decent selection of board-wipes as well. I should try out Whirler Virtuoso, such a troll card against aggro.

Thanks for the good wishes! I get the appeal of U/B Control, but I feel like red has slightly better removal options and of course Whirler Virtuoso is just an amazing sideboard card.

Could possibly use Harnessed Lightning in place of Lightning Strike, as it could possibly lead into additional Thopters with Whirler Virtuoso. It doesn't allow you to target players, but it's a suggestion.

Inspiring Statuary could be used if you're having mana problems, like affinity but you'd have to tap your Thopters.

So I'm playing sultai energy and I'm wanting to splash red for Whirler Virtuoso and Harnessed Lightning however I'm need to ad red lands into it and I'm not sure what lands to replace.

why not run 4 modules bc 3 + Whirler Virtuoso = infinite thopters, and if you have a Reckless Fireweaver.... lol gg

Seems like its only hard to get the pieces because the deck needs 4 pieces to combo. If you go decoction - Whirler - Gonti's that would let you play like a glimmer or something. Also 2 other 3 card combo routes cause I'm feeling nice today;
Winding Constrictor - Whirler Virtuoso - Gonti's Aether Heart
Whirler Virtuoso - Anointed Procession - Gonti's Aether Heart
Basically gonti's can save you a combo piece, though it sucks it costs 6 and not 5. also gonti's can get you an extra turn that will let you swing with your infinite team, saving you the Reckless Fireweaver slot... So it can save 2 slots...

paulbmoore1980 on Temur Energy My Way (Ixalan Update)

Naj187: I like it! I am in the process of revamping my existing Temur Energy deck to make use of some of the new cards from Ixalan, as well as incorporating some of the better cards from earlier sets. The hybrid that I came up with has been testing pretty well on Xmage so far. That being said, one of the better cards in that version is the card you had issues with...Heart of Kiran. With your card selection you have both early and late game interaction, which is great...let me explain.

T1-Attune with Aether and search for a land, say a forest, and get EE.
T2-Land into a Heart of Kiran.
T3 can go a couple of ways. Play a land into Longtusk Cub. Pay EE to put a +1/+1 counter on the Cub, use Cub to crew Heart and swing 4...or drop a Rhonas the Indomitable and use Rhonas to crew the Heart and swing 4...same goes for playing a Rogue Refiner and getting to darw a card plus another EE...all these lines of play can crew a Heart.
A T4 Chandra, Torch of Defiance can come down, +1 to exile the top card and deal 2 damage, then use a loyalty counter to crew the Heart, keeping all your other creatures open as blockers.

In the late game you can surprise your opponent if you have enough energy banked. A Whirler Virtuoso can use energy to create thopter tokens which can be used to surprise crew at instant speed should you need to...

Anyways, I just thought that you might be able to benefit from the use of the card, hence why I suggested it. Good luck to you!
