Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

RawrMcRawr on Mayael *Tips/Help Welcome*

15 hours ago

Rings of Brighthearth mandatory

Hunting Grounds near mandatory, but you dont have a lot of ways to fill you graveyard. if you end up adding more sorcery ramp then I would add this.

Mirari's Wake mana is very taxed in mayael, this helps with a slight buff

Mana Reflection despite being worse than mirari's, you probably want both. mana is a serious problem in this deck

Norwood Priestess mandatory

Bloom Tender incredible ramp, especially for mayael since she comes onto the field fast, and is three colours. worst case scenario it taps for 1 mana.

Iona, Shield of Emeria win con.

Seedborn Muse mandatory

Green Sun's Zenith can help you get your ramp early on with a struggling hand, or can be used for whatever you need later on.

Land Tax you dont want to miss land drops, and this doubles to thin your deck, increasing the likelihood of mayael hitting.

Congregation at Dawn+Worldly Tutor creature tutors, obviously important in mayael, and can allow you to keep worse hands as they can hit ramp creatures. They can also be used as a reaction when you have lurking predators on the field to put any creature into play.

Enlightened Tutor+Idyllic Tutor can allow you to get miraris, lurking predators, hunting grounds, or ramp artifacts with enlightened.

Whispersilk Cloak can be used to protect mayael, and can allow your fatties to walk through enemy blocks.

Summoning Trap/Carpet of Flowers are options depending on your play group

the new Selvala's Stampede card will likely be incredible in this deck

replace commander's sphere with a faster ramp, you are always going to want the mana and thus are never going to sacrifice it for the card. the signets are potential options

Good luck, and feel free to comment on my karador deck :) http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/karador-resilient-reanimator-13/

Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sorin Markov, Whispersilk Cloak, Sword of War and Peace. Are 35 lands enought? Nice deck+1. Would you mind upvoting my St Traft Azorius Control?

Prowler's Helm or Whispersilk Cloakwould be a good addition so you can do direct hits of poison if they didn't have a wall.

The deck looks really good and I can't think of too many things to suggest. Like the previous comments have suggested, Cyclonic Rift is always a strong card to have. Since you're more of a Voltron deck, cards like Darksteel Plate or Whispersilk Cloak could be useful.

The only other suggestion I have would be to slowly upgrade your manabase to either stronger taplands or lands that won't come in tapped to speed things up. Lands like:

Temple of Enlightenment
Celestial Colonnade
Mystic Gate
Prairie Stream
Hallowed Fountain

+1!

Glad to help! :) To mention one specific card I missed, Whispersilk Cloak didn't find a place in my Voltron decks. Not because it's a bad card (it's amazing and gives your deck inevitability) but instead because it prevents you from sticking on further equipment. Has that proven to be an issue for you?

The other, more general advice I would give is that you could use some more token-makers. A large number of creatures is the best way to profit from JK's global buff, and an X-costed token-maker (for example, Martial Coup or Rise of the Hobgoblins) is good at any point in the game.

I've found that the best way to deal with counterspell-heavy control decks is to play high-impact spells that have to be answered with multiple counterspells. That's one of the reasons that I love Waves of Aggression, because it's as if they have to draw a counterspell for each of your lands.

Ooh! I could stick in Whispersilk Cloak in here, since I don't plan to equip many things to Adriana and since she can get to be quite a large attacker. Thoughts?

buford420 on Mono White Life-gain Cats. Need your help.

carpecanum thank you as well for suggestions - I forgot about Whispersilk Cloak and wasn't aware of Masterwork of Ingenuity. Adding them to my decks asap.

Ditch the Angel's Feather i think. If you really want non-equipment artifact life gain try Sun Droplet. Anything with Extort also.

Spirit Link especially on your opponents creatures), Noble Purpose, True Conviction. Rhox Faithmender and Beacon of Immortality double up your life gains.

Masterwork of Ingenuity lets you double up early equipment drops like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. Whispersilk Cloak and Godsend would be nice.
