SACRIFICE ONION

Perfect Strategy:

Card Descriptions:

  • Adaptive Automaton: The ally lord that could be replaced in the new BFZ set. He won't be saved by Brave the Elements, but the +1/+1 global effect is still very good.
  • Brave the Elements: The gay-part of the deck... preventing a lot of damage or effects with this is cruel, but doesn't matter if you win because of it. Also fizzles targeted kill-spells.
  • Cloudshif: What keeps the wheel turning in this deck, this could act as a Counterspell when used with Kabira Evangel, and also an enabler to give more +1/+1 counters to others. He almost never attacks because it's a critical piece of the puzzle.
  • Emeria, The Sky Ruin: The Fun-Land, it is only here to generate variety and well... in a late game-gone-bad this can resucitate Kabira Evangels and Kazandu Blademasters to keep on fighting. Hard to trigger but can make a difference in the long run.
  • Ghostway: A full board waiting for this card to be played on the opponent's turn means a next turn with allies at their most. Just one more trigger and Game Over...
  • Gideon, Ally of Zendikar: Hoping that this guy will drop in price, eventually there will be 2 of them in here. The +1 is useful to increase the effects of Ondu Cleric or to bounce himself with Cloudshift (4+1=5, 5-4=1, 1+1+Cloudshift=4). The 0 is obviously the trigger effect every Ally deck looks for and will be usually used on Turn 4, just after he lands. The -4 is a mere sugar coat for this card, and being available right after he's on the battlefield is golden if the situation requires an immediate P/T buff. Good card, lots of potential, fits right in the mana curve of this deck. Only thing missing is something to give it haste... and that could be the cue for Lightning Greaves to appear in this deck.
  • Hada Freeblade: First-turn-drop. When dropped early, this guy gets huge by turn 5 or 6. Very vulnerable to bounces and such, but still worth it's place. It's cost and benefit make it a must in this sort of deck.
  • Join the Ranks: SURPRISE!! Two more allies to deal with. More life gained. More color protection. Two counters for the hitters... and all at instant speed! This card changes the tide of a battle when things are about to go south for your blockers.
  • Kabira Evangel: Protection protection protection... a cornerstone card with 29 others to set this guy off makes it a consistent threat. Enables a Kazandu Blademaster to attack for free, and if you keep a Cloudshift hidden in your hand, you could keep the whole board protected at any given time. Cheap card, cheap effect, game winner.
  • Kazandu Blademaster: The hitter. The defender. This guy carries the rest of the team as long as he has some support from Kabira Evangel. Becomes a Lightning Bolt catcher when he starts growing, so be prepared.
  • Oblivion Ring: Situation preventer. Did the enemy drop a Steel Hellkite? No problem, Ring it. Furnace of Rath about to get messy? No problem, Ring it. Almost nothing is safe from this motherf*cker. The only thing that could complicate its application is having enough mana open, making it a decision between putting a ring on something or triggering a Rally.
  • Ondu Cleric: Want life? You got it. I've ended with more than 100 life in a match because of this dude... the key is to cast a well timed Ghostway followed by a Join the Ranks. Pretty obscene and gives you a lot of time to set the board to your advantage.
  • Path to Exile: My favourite panic-button. One more land for the enemy is not a real disadvantage when you just exiled a 12/12 Primalcrux. Beautiful art too, the promo edition.Content goes here. The content will be hidden until the summary text is clicked.

I'd seriously consider adding in Lantern Scout and Expedition Envoy from BFZ.

@Busse, since one big part of this deck is getting protection from a color, what would you do if your opponent is playing an Eldrazi deck?

October 26, 2015 11:20 a.m.

Busse says... #3

Pray.

Maybe max out Oblivion Ring, Journey to Nowhere and Path to Exile.
This deck was designed prior to the advent of viable Devoid decks. Kor Entanglers and similar tapping effects may be helpful too.
Eventually you'll have lots and LOTS of life via Ondu Cleric, so maybe that's your only guarantee against Devoid decks. Lantern Scout can help achieve 100+ life too.

October 26, 2015 12:20 p.m.

Aless55 says... #4

So if everything goes more or less as planed you should reach more than 40 lifes, even against an eldrazi deck. I can confirm this from my other deck, I managed to reach around 80 lifes, multiple times. So Felidar Sovereign might be a pretty good sideboard card. It gives you another way to win the game, espacially if you rematch your opponent.

Do you actually sacrifice the onions? If it wouldn't interfere with the ritual, a video of the ritual would be awesome!

October 30, 2015 6:02 p.m.

Minelia5 says... #6

is there a card I can replace gideon with for budget purposes? I plan on getting him, but not right away.

November 9, 2015 7:25 a.m.

Busse says... #7

Asd

Here's the last onion I sacrificed ... it's an unpleasant task but somebody's got to do it. I'll consider a video eventually

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar could be replaced for Expedition Envoy in the meanwhile, or Talus Paladin, depending on your speed preference.

November 13, 2015 10:53 a.m.

kameenook says... #8

Awesome haha! I'd upvote more if I could.

November 13, 2015 4:14 p.m.

Awesome, thanks a ton! nice pic of the onion sacrifice btw. :P

November 13, 2015 4:26 p.m.

The upvote overflow can go into the other decks. Most of them are worth looking at, anyway hahah
Cheers dudes!

Happymaster19 says... #11

This deck is pretty dominant against onion matchups. So you sacrifice onions only to this deck's upvotes?

November 16, 2015 4:13 p.m.

Busse says... #12

Happymaster19: hey there! I sac' them for upvotes in all my 5 decks, so if you wan't to go holocaust-mode, press the green button in all of 'em hahahahah. Cheers!

P.S.: You should see them crying every time I mention this deck's name in the kitchen. Hilarious.

amazing!!!!+1

January 10, 2016 8:25 p.m.

lomby says... #20

Wait.... Gideon, Ally of Zendikar??? wasn't this BUDGET? and 2 of them, for even more "budget" XD

(The card, obvioulsy, must be grat on this deck, but is too expensive)

January 11, 2016 9:21 a.m.

Budget is a pretty subjective term. $150 for a modern deck (where competitive decks are usually north of $600 and up to $2,000) is pretty budget if you ask me. Making objective claims about a subjective term is pretty bold :P It is akin to saying that orange ice cream is the best flavor of ice cream. Surely, some people would agree with you. But it is far from objectivity.

January 11, 2016 2:20 p.m.

Minelia5 says... #22

yeah, grasp of fate isn't legal, FYREKNIGHT is right. D:

January 12, 2016 6:43 a.m.

limpNuZZle says... #23

Would you consider sideboarding the Ondu Cleric and bringing in 4 Champion of the Parish ? This would ensure that every other creature is a human and triggers champion. This allows for more turn one aggro. The life gain from the clerics seems a bit win more if you're winning on t4 or 5 anyway. Maybe just brig in for burn. I just think champion is a house so it may be worth considering. I'm totally putting this together haha

February 2, 2016 8:52 a.m.

elkingo says... #24

Love the deck.

I see it's purely budget but I can suggest a couple of cheeky adds in the mana base.

Mono colour really helps you here.

NOT 1) Cavern of Souls (ehh, I looked that up just now 50$ is clearly not budget)

Almost 1) Mutavault (Activate it, becomes an extra ally. Currently around $17 mayyybe a one of if you're in the top end of budget)

The real 1) Ghost quarter to keep your opponents off Tron or inkmoth nexus, or elzrazi temple or eye of ugin is very relevant and worth the $2.34 I see it right now.

2) Immortal Servitude is 0.5 dollars, cast for x = 2 and ondu cleric and kazanda blademaster both recover from the inevitable lightning bolt that they took.

3) Stoneforge masterwork (OOG) is a mini coat of arms equipment.

4) For me (assuming we get to keep Gideon in the deck) Oath of Gideon is better than Join the Ranks.

5) A cheeky dictate of heliod can be the difference between you opponent letting 3 points of damage over and letting 6 points of damage over.

February 11, 2016 2:50 p.m.

lomby says... #25

Im sorry, but about Mutavault, I dont think it trigers the allys, Its not an ally when enters the battlefield, and when it is, it doesnt enter the battlefield

February 11, 2016 9:44 p.m.

lomby he never said it did trigger ally effects. It just becomes an ally to then benefit from other etb effects such as Kabira Evangel.

February 11, 2016 10:46 p.m.

Outriderblue says... #27

Yo, you might want to keep your eye out for Eerie Interlude. It's coming out in Shadows Over Innistrad, and will be in the next Duel Deck. I'm considering it for my Allies deck over Ghostway.

February 15, 2016 8:47 p.m.

Outriderblue says... #28

Check out Eerie Interlude. It's like Ghostway, but will let you target specific creatures.

February 25, 2016 11:29 a.m.

uio says... #29

I dread to think of how many onions lost their lives to this deck.

March 20, 2016 2:44 p.m.

xavrr says... #30

608 onions and counting...

I do hope you remember to peform the incantations when you sacrifice the onions?

+1 upvote, -1 onion

I'm pretty sure Grasp of Fate is not modern legal, considering that it has only been printed in Commander 2015, which is not a modern legal 'set'.

Busse says... #33

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME AND COMMENT HERE

  • xavrr: 663 and counting. Hell yeah vegetables die. Sometimes we have shortage of onions, so other things end up sacrificed... but mostly onions. Damn them.

  • uio: they dread to think about that too. This is their bane, their Doomsday...

  • Outriderblue: Yep. Eerie Interlude. I'm working on it. Have to check some things relating to targets and "control" issues. I'll report when that's finished.

  • Cicjose: Topan Freeblade is not an ally, not good enough too.

  • random_decks: Indeed, I returned to Oblivion Ring instead of the Grasp of Fate, but I'm even thinking of throwing this to Legacy just for that card. So much power in just one enchantment.

  • dashdo101: thanks for the enthusiasm! :D

  • lomby: Hey lomby... yes. This is "budget"...-ish. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is not TERRIBLY budget, but it can be used very well, and can be replaced with other creatures or enchantments when in an absolute budget situation. Cheers! hahah

  • elkingo: Hey! First of all, link your cards man! Second... yes; Cavern of Souls is a very tempting addition, but not strictly necessary. About the other things... I'm exploring such options. For me the use of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar involves using it's ultimate at least one per match, thus slightly replacing the Coat of Arms effect you mentioned. Also comes with more flexiblity and ally-triggers. Anyway, thanks for the ideas :)

  • limpNuZZle: Howdy! Swapping Ondu Cleric and Champion of the Parish could work if you REEAALLY need more aggro. Depends on the meta. Also I changed a couple of things here in the last months. Check it out! See ya!
