Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

How about using something like Whispersilk Cloak to ensure that the Master of Cruelties goes through?

Highly recommend Whispersilk Cloak keeps people from targeting your commander and makes him unblockable for easy counter/token generation.

Blade of Selves doesn't work because Hope of Ghirapur is legendary; the copies would just die immediately. I like Whispersilk Cloak but Shroud means I can't bolt more stuff onto my thopter without moving the Cloak to something else. My creature count is pretty low so that's not always a guarantee. But one thing I do have a problem with is getting my thopter blown up, so it's probably worth considering as another protection equipment.

Blade of Selves ?? All players can't cast non-creature spells :D

Whispersilk Cloak ?? Good for getting that unblockable damage

I Believe, as with all dragons of teneb's nature, you should use some unblockable equipment or auras. This makes it possible for it to deal combat damage every turn, in addition to providing commander damage. One of my favorites is Whispersilk Cloak. This gives the equipped creature Shroud, while making it unblockable, so your opponent can't just target it with a destroy spell or anything. Another one that's nice is Prowler's Helm. It makes the equipped creature only blockable by walls, but since teneb is flying, it makes it technically unblockable since most walls don't have flying or reach. Or there's Skyblinder Staff Which makes it so creatures with flying can't block the equipped creature, making teneb unblockable unless they have a reach creature or enchantment that takes his flying ability. However, if you use this technique, the creatures you conjure back from the graveyards won't do much except be blockers since teneb will kill your opponent in four turns at the most if left unanswered, making him the top priorty for your opponent(s).

@pheardemons Actually I've had some pretty good luck with nykthos in here but lake is too new of an addition to tell. I was working with hellcarver and just being suicidal but it wasn't working out as well as I wanted. The idea is don't swing with rakdos unless I have protection and/or double strike available or late game when I have a couple of demons out.

I am trying out Combat Celebrant because it is easier to use at 3 cmc and can win me the game if I can get Morality Shift + Past in Flames + mana spells + Living Death to resolve if gary doesn't. Maybe I should consider Red Elemental Blast to protect it.

I originally tried Whispersilk Cloak but I was starting to struggle with my slots. Same reason why I currently don't have Insult.

I kind of want to try out more cards like Painful Quandary, Tasigur's Cruelty, and Delirium Skeins to see how well those can protect my board and Morality Shift combo. I would love hellcarver shenanigans but I don't have any instant wins to abuse with it.

Thanks for the reply!

I actually have a Brago deck that I built a while back, and happy to steer you towards it if you want! I like cards like Felidar Guardian and Glimmerpoint Stag a lot, because you can double the EtBs of your creatures. Also Knight-Captain of Eos is better than Attended Knight imo since more tokens. No Solemn Simulacrum? Also surprised that Swords to Plowshares isn't in the deck.

Also, if you want more infinite combos, mana rocks + Strionic Resonator create infinite Brago blinks if he lands because you can blink the resonator and rocks, then copy Brago's ability an infinite number of times.

Protecting Brago is very important too, and Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Whispersilk Cloak ensure he stays protected.

Hope this helps!

Some great smaller creatures to consider: Solemn Simulacrum for color fixing and card draw, Angel of Invention to buff your little guys, Ankle Shanker to help your creatures survive, Duplicant offers great removal, Mirror Entity can buff all your creatures, Gonti, Lord of Luxury is just fun, Mentor of the Meek for card draw.

Dump Blazing Volley for Blasphemous Act, great removal. Dusk is a great one sided board wipe as well. Boros Charm is also great with it's flexibility.

Use Buried Alive to put your best creatures in the graveyard.

You also want to be able to attack with Alesha with no fear of her being killed. So make her unblockable with Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, and Key to the City will make her unblockable while simultaneously putting a creature into your graveyard.

If your goal is to win with combat damage from little guys, you need to buff them with Cathars' Crusade and Call for Unity.

Hope this helps
