Whispersilk Cloak Discussion
4 days ago
This is not a fully optimized list. It lacks a lot of fast mana, and generally has a lot of 'do-nothing' cards: the monuments, Oketra's Monument , and Bontu's Monument ; Field of Souls ; etc. That said, the deck is very interactive and incredibly strong when games go long.
Because the mana curve is relatively low, we are able to recur Gutterbones , Relentless Dead , etc. for card draw while still interacting with our opponents and assembling a win condition. The altars: Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar are game winning threats that go infinite in combination with Teysa, Orzhov Scion and one of our recur-able threats. A free sac outlet, and Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Gray Merchant of Asphodel goes for infinite drain. There are many other loops that can be made with our aristocrats...too many to list. I would encourage anyone adapting this list to play test a lot and familiarize yourself with the deck before taking it out for a spin with your play group.
Our protective equipment Swiftfoot Boots , Lightning Greaves , and Whispersilk Cloak are in the deck to protect Krav and/or Regna to preserve their ability to generate value. Because they are so expensive, if they are removed, it really sets the deck back, so be careful about when you deploy them--especially Krav.

Flooded Strand , Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh , Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista , Polluted Delta , Bloodstained Mire , Wooded Foothills , Windswept Heath , Marsh Flats , Scalding Tarn , Verdant Catacombs , Arid Mesa , Misty Rainforest , Aqueous Form , Whispersilk Cloak , Lightning Greaves , and Swiftfoot Boots added. 14 Forest removed. I could find only 5 battle lands(tango lands) and put the 4 on color in here.

Try all 10 fetchlands and all six shocklands in these colors. Cut Forests for them. And the six on color Tango Lands might be good too. Also cut forests. Aqueous Form is good to make sure Yidris connects. Same with Whispersilk Cloak . Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots give him haste and protection.

Other than that, everything you said is true. That's why I made this post. I'm looking for cuts to run Savage Summoning and Blossoming Defense ; those seem like good ways to deal with interaction. I might put Lignify in the sideboard, too. Point is, yeah, the deck folds to any sort of control and I'm looking to fix that.

WhatevWorks: not sure what your point is? it doesn't change the facts of what i said. that sort of combo requires that you draw really well (by which i mean "get lucky") and likely leaves you with an empty hand and small boardstate when an opponent just Path to Exile 's your big creature because you didn't draw the one single copy of Whispersilk Cloak in the deck.
your biggest creature in the deck is a 2/1, your power buffs are all instants (meaning temporary), and you have zero sources of trample. trample or other evasion is absolutely mandatory if you're attempting to dump all your resources into one lethal shot. 1 single Whispersilk Cloak won't cut it, and you'll end up getting chump blocked by tokens. the deck folds hard to discard and counterspells.
your deck has no interaction, which means you have to be able to ensure a turn 4 win (at latest), while also contending with opposing interaction. if you don't draw your Marwyn, the Nurturer / Viridian Joiner , or if an opponent casts a turn 1 Thoughtseize and takes one of them, you lose.

PlatinumOne, the amount of mana generated by targeting Marwyn, the Nurturer or Viridian Joiner with two or three copies of Savage Surge / Aim High / Gift of Growth is more than enough on T3-4 to storm off with a Rishkar's Expertise or some such, then chain untap/buff spells and draw-based-on-power spells until Marwyn swings for lethal and you've got a Whispersilk Cloak in hand with 50 green mana floating. If an Elvish Archdruid list gets lucky, it might be able to land an Eldrazi titan by turn 4.

lagotripha, you're suggesting some drastic changes to the deck and the fundamental way it functions. I like what you're saying, and I honestly think I'm just going to go ahead and make a completely new list on tappedout following your suggestions. We'll see what happens with it, thanks.
Flooremoji, there's only one creature we're trying to untap and that's the Marwyn/Joiner on the field. Synchronized Strike is good if you have two of them on the field, but that doesn't offset the increased cost. And, you're right, I need more mana. Currently trying to find cuts for it, thanks for pointing that out.
DruneGrey, this was previously a private list that ran Visionary. I found two mana wasn't worth a Marwyn pump without an untap, even if it doesn't cost a card. I think Visionary might be more at home in what lagotripha's suggesting.
