Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

pahamaki on Could use some advice with ...

Off the top of my head you could:

  • Ramp even harder. Vorosh, the Hunter is really mana intensive. You've got some green ramp spells there, but I'd look into creature and artifact options as well. Sultai Banner and Mind Stone are easy suggestions.

  • Focus on protection and delivery. Vorosh, the Hunter is big, and grows even bigger, so stuff doesn't need to pump him as such, rather than protect him from removal. He also flies, so additional evasion may be redundant. Whispersilk Cloak and Lightning Greaves should be maindecked definitely, and you could even consider Neurok Stealthsuit and Specter's Shroud.

  • If voltron is your main strategy, what's the supporting strategy? I see discarding and graveyard recursion in there: my advice would be to pick one. Control (through removal and counterspells), stealing and copying stuff, graveyard shenanigans and I suppose discard are all valid options with these colours. Pick one and roll with it rather than dipping into all pools.

  • You have lots of single use targeted removal. I'd cut that, and add mass removal and ETB creatures instead.

  • You're playing blue, so focusing on better card draw seems like a direct improvement. Mulldrifter FTW.

  • I see no tutors on the list, despite you being in the best colours for them. Check out Brainspoil and other cards with the Transmute keyword, there's bound to be something useful there, even if you don't like straight up tutors. I think every deck should play at least a Diabolic Tutor if possible.

  • In light of the recent sets spawning ten tons of dragons into the cardpool, why not add some of them to the mix? Deathbringer Regent, Dragonlord Silumgar and Silumgar, the Drifting Death could be fun here.

Hadn't though of those, they'd go great w/ Whispersilk Cloak so I'll probably get some and i plan to use combat and spells

Sultai Banner should become Commander's Sphere. Same card but better.

Anticipate should become Impulse. Same card, but you look one card deeper.

Cancel should become Counterspell. Same card, but cheaper.

Mind Control should be Control Magic. Same card, but cheaper.

A couple great cards you should also consider are Cyclonic Rift and Whispersilk Cloak. One is an amazing one sided board wipe, the other is a way to both protect Vorosh and also swing through

On second thougt Whispersilk Cloak will interfere with my spells that let me tap and untap so I'll probably not use it

Some cutting ideas if you want them.

Hibernation's End, and Abundance both turned out to be too slow for me.

Colossus of Akros is meh

Hornet Nest is too defensive I think.

Concordant Crossroads is one I go back and forth on. I love it, but it has hosed me before.

I always try to use it, but Whispersilk Cloak just never seems to do much for me.

Bull! There are many commanders that are not Legendary creatures before they transform, and yet they are legal. This is just one more.

I think you should consider Tainted Strike and Whispersilk Cloak. Maybe a bit more voltron than what you were planning but the one hit kill w/ infect is fun and giving your boss 13 counters means the rest on his hits are also one hit kills.

If somebody chump blocks Phyrexian Obliterator, few things are more hilarious than Howl from Beyond or the like.

Hot Soup is nice for other affects such as it you can use Prowler's Helm, Whispersilk Cloak, or Trailblazer's Boots. With what you have going on a Goblin Bombardment would help and keep with the flavor, but Blasting Station would help too, damage from either can be doubled if you add a Goblin Sharpshooter. Other worth while mana boosters would be Battle Hymn, Mana Echoes, Dragonrage And you can defiantly get some value out of Burn at the Stake with all of those bodies. now to mazimize krenko Puppet Strings, Sword of the Paruns, or Umbral Mantle. Have fun.

I would be glad to hear what do you think about this guys, UpsetYoMama, Legionofinferno, AtomusPrime, Averymk9 as I did listen to all of your suggestion and made changes accordingly :) and I thankful you for the help.

I've also those cards and thought they might fit but not sure:
Kusari-Gama - for killing many creatures

Bloodgift Demon - flying with extra draw sounds good

Consuming Vapors - removal + healing might be good

Painful Quandary - sounds like good limiting card, though I've read that it is best played with discard tactics.

Foul Renewal - might be better removal as I get an extra creature plus can kill indestructible creature.

Black Sun's Zenith - I know its a good card but not sure that I have a place for it.

Altar of Dementia - can make some combos with the other artifacts and give me more options for resurrection.

Mask of Avacyn - thought can be a better alternative for Champion's Helm but I put Whispersilk Cloak instead. As its equipe cost is higher then of Helm's.

Champion's Helm - as stated above, I've changed it to Whispersilk Cloak, as I wanted an effect for all of my creatures, though as my low CMC creatures are quite weak might be a good idea to have it.

generally putting those cards in will raise the avg CMC of the deck and as it is 3.39 its quite in the limit of not too high..

Just some of my thoughts but will need to test and see if anyone can suggest what to include from that list and instead of what I will be thankful :)
