Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

RamaLama on It's Not Easy Being Green

True that Riding the Dilu Horse is one use, in so much as it's a sorcery and goes straight to the graveyard, but the effect doesn't go away at the end of the turn. It gives Omnath horsemanship until he leaves play, and that's what makes it a good card. Still, it is susceptible to the 2 for 1 effect I mentioned above and that's why I'm on the fence about adding it.

Opponents do try to keep Omnath off the battlefield for obvious reasons, but it's not Omnath I'm wanting to protect, with all the mana I'm generating, bringing him back out isn't really an issue. I tried going all in on the pillow fort plan with Omnath, but finally realized that it's not Omnath himself that I need to protect, but the mana he's hoarding. To that end, and the reason I don't have Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots in the deck, is to run cards like Yeva, Nature's Herald, Mirrorpool, Winding Canyons, Yavimaya Hollow, Savage Summoning and Vedalken Orrery in order to safeguard the mana. I do also have some pillow fort in the deck with Whispersilk Cloak, which unlike Lightning Greaves serves a dual purpose, as well as Heroic Intervention which can be flashed in when needed against either targeted removal or board wipes. The aforementioned Bear Umbra is also there to protect Omnath, as well as Akroma's Memorial and Sword of Feast and Famine each of which protect against two colors.

I can bring Riding the Dilu Horse back with Eternal Witness if all the stars line up, but that's very situational. I'm not really sold on the card, which is why I don't have one yet, but I do think it's a good card.

Whispersilk Cloak is just a given. Instant wincon if you play it late game

DrukenReaps on Any Suggestions for Mardu Draw ...

Alhammarret's Archive + anything that draws one or more cards. Admittedly it seems bad, even more so if you don't have life gain but it has been an over performer in Divine Decree.

Erebos, God of the Dead just by himself draws very well. also very annoying for people that gain life.

Harvester of Souls + field wipes or just creature combat and spot removal.

Dragon Mage + Whispersilk Cloak is good when you want to refill your hand and just funny.

Mentor of the Meek + token gen or small critter that keeps coming back. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is an example.

Disciple of Bolas + Conjurer's Closet or Alesha, Who Smiles at Death.

Hopefully some of that helps.

Thanks Arkheid, superhuman21, and Pickacantaloupe for all your helpful comments.

As a general rule I am still trying to stick as hard as possible to the kitty theme rather than swap out cats for better equipment deck creatures. Things like Stoneforge Mystic, Puresteel Paladin, Sun Titan, etc. are obviously briliant cards for this deck but once I start putting them in in place of cats I feel like I'm not running a cat tribal deck any more and I might as well just replace Arahbo with Sram :)

However the Bloodforged Battle-Axe is definitely on my radar, as is Open the Armory as I totally forgot it exists. From my very limited playtesting as well I can see that Hexproof is a major boon here for keeping that voltron kitty alive so Whispersilk Cloak is being seriously considered as well (as is Mask of Avacyn as a cheaper alternative).

Regarding the Lost Leonin - this is also on my radar, and I have one sitting next to me. I'm just not sure if I want to go through the Infect route or not.... If I did put it in I would also consider Grafted Exoskeleton too and it may end up being what is used with the tutors every game. I imagine it draws quite a lot of hate though....

Sweet build friend. Maybe Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to protect Sigarda and as a haste enabler, even Whispersilk Cloak. I also like Darksteel Plate and Hammer of Nazahn for indestructible.

I don't feel like I need another Maze effect. Maze of Ith and Kor Haven were in the deck together for years and haven't felt the need for the second effect again after dropping Maze back in December. Haven is also one of my go-to targets for a land tutor, so I often have it out.

Thaumatic Compass seems a little awkward to use for its land side since there's only Enlightened Tutor to find it, and burning a potential Equipment tutor for a Maze effect feels like a waste.


@CrimsonWings3689

Whispersilk Cloak doesn't seem unreasonable with Balan at the helm, but it will still be as clunky as always when relying on my other creatures. I'm going to stick with leaving shroud out of my deck. I don't want to have more awkward scenarios than what I already get with Godsend and Sword of Light and Shadow.


@PyreCracker

Sram - Cutting Silverblade Paladin for him isn't a bad change. Ixalan doesn't offer any new creatures for this deck, so Paladin is an open slot.

Alms Collector - Draw spells are too infrequent in my meta for Collector to function properly. I mostly see card draw engines that draw one at a time.

Other Card Draw Equipment - I don't have a lot of interest in using them, mainly because they're all terrible compared to Sword of Fire and Ice and space in the deck is very tight.
