Delta-117 Deckling

I started playing Magic the Gathering around the time of Journey into Nyx and since then I have come to enjoy this trading card game, and I have gone on to collect a growing number of cards from both sets old and new.

My favourite color combination in magic would be Simic (U/G). Although as of late I have been increasingly a lot more liking Golgari. That's because of my current standard deck which you can find below.

Delta-117,
I think Nissa, Steward of Elements is going to be an amazing card for sure, but I have a hard time guessing what she's going to be like in Infect. I ran Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip for a while, and found I'd rather have a Serum Visions or a Spellskite instead. But Nissa's definitely got some potential, and I'm TOTALLY looking forward to hearing how she does for you!

FYI, there's a thread about her over at r/Infect.

I should soon before too long be getting my own copy of Sliver Queen and Sliver Legion (and some stuff for a modern deck) as part of a trade. That friend of mine I mentioned earlier has decided he is going to part with these slivers as he already sold off his sliver commander deck about a year ago as he never got to play it much and was just losing a bit of interest in the format previously. I'm going to be buying him 2 Chalice of the Void that he needed for modern, once I soon get my store credit for selling some cards mostly from standard and a couple from mm2017.

Once I have these I need to just focus on lands to upgrade my rather budget mana base.

That's exactly what I was thinking, if there were to be dragons there would likely have to be that card.

Probably will see those two cards, likely also Lightning Bolt if it wasn't in mm2017, and this is just my hope but I would like to see a reprint of the tron lands but I'm not sure if that will happen. I guess being a newer player to the game (Started at around Born of the Gods/ Journey into Nyx) I never have appreciated some of the older art to some cards, while Urza's Tower(The forest art mainly) is relatively fine I just can't quite seem to like Urza's Mine or Urza's Power Plant as much.

If not for that hope I would love to see some slivers printed in the set.

So I see Sandwurm Convergence has ended up being added, I will say that card is pretty decent after being the victim of that card at prereleases. My opponent played it and even though I tried to stall with embalm creatures and other tokens from myDrake Haven and a bit of life gain in 4-5 turns I was dead.

I opened a Nissa, Steward of Elements which I may give a try in my Atraxa deck however I'm still not fully sure, and I will probably add a Sandwurm Convergence to mine as well. I was hoping more so for a Gideon and or As Foretold though, but no luck yet from my 27 total Amonkhet packs.

Open anything decent at any prereleases? I myself attended two going 1-2 the first time and 2-1 the second time.

My first kit only was a Honored Hydra and a promo Heaven / Earth. I got crushed game 1 by a bant deck splashing white for Oketra the True, game 2 I lost in our third round against another Bant deck featuring a Kefnet the Mindful, Nissa, Steward of Elements and an Angel of Sanctions. The other match I cant remember their deck much nothing stood out really that I can recall and I did win this one.

The second event later I opened a promo Kefnet the Mindful, a Hazoret the Fervent, a Drake Haven, an Irrigated Farmland, and a Anointed Procession.I played a U/W cycling deck and I had a fair bit of discard too, so I Was playing kefnet, with Drake Haven, Anointed Procession, and a Irrigated Farmland.

Game 1, I lost to a abzan deck featuring a foil Archfiend of Ifnir along with a Honored Hydra with plenty of cycling. Took forever for our matches to finish since my deck was so slow to win as well as to even beat, and our first match was about 35 minutes?

Game 2 I won against a Golgari deck playing lots of zombies and some cycling cards, it had Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Dread Wanderer, Ruthless Sniper, Festering Mummy, Stir the Sands, and Supernatural Stamina and combat tricks in green.

Game 3 was against a Selesnya tokens deck, featuring a Regal Caracal,Champion of Rhonas, and a Sandwurm Convergence. Game 1 I won through drake tokens eventually. While game two with my deck being so slow I couldn't do anything about Sandwurm Convergence which ended up beating me in about 4-5 turns not surprisingly.

My deck featured gate to the afterlifeenter image description here which I paired this thing with 1x drake haven and the synergy was awesome, beyond that I had Annointed Procession for even more tokens. I had 2 of those Sacred Cats to embalm too and 2 Anointer Priest for a ton of life gain and tokens.

That's how I literally won game 3, I attacked them with kefnet 5 times(the cats gave him some more life) and cast 2 Sacred Cats a turn apart, and embalmed them each while gaining life on the original ones dying from gate to the afterlife, and then life again when the token entered because of Anointer Priest. So I just stalled with that even though I was getting attacked over and over.

Got a Harsh Mentor in my prize pack. I bought another kit before leaving to also open a Nissa, Steward of Elements, a promo Aven Mindcensor, a foil Never / Return and another Irrigated Farmland too.

Only one invocation was opened surprisingly out of like 45-50 kits and 2 boxes worth of prize packs so far. It was an Aven Mindcensor the one.

Okay here are my promised suggestions.

Take out Winter Orb for Winding Constrictor, Trophy Mage for Master Biomancer, Tangle Wire for Eternal Witness, remove Sun Titan for a Ajani Unyielding, Supreme Verdict for I believe As Foretold even though not covered in your list if you can acquire one of these I recommend it, otherwise add maybe Vorel of the Hull Clade.

Beyond this, swap Stasis for Hardened Scales, Shred Memory for Scavenging Ooze, Perplex for Thrummingbird, Peacekeeper for either Authority of the Consulate (Will explain why soon) or Corpsejack Menace if not, Narset Transcendent for Glen Elendra Archmage, Muddle the Mixture for Abzan Charm, Luminarch Ascension for Aura Shards, Kiora, Master of the Depths for Forgotten Ancient, Idyllic Tutor for Collective Effort, Humility for I think Archangel of Thune if you have or can get one easily the card works well when you have of course your commander and Authority of the Consuls if you choose to run that, or just Rishkar's Expertise, Fabricate for Crystalline Crawler, Aura of Silence for Prime Speaker Zegana.

You could always add in some hydras to this like Primordial Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, and Lifeblood Hydra. Some other considerations are Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel which I recommend one or more (I use both) so you don't ever have to worry about discard when you play Prime Speaker Zegana or Rishkar's Expertise. I also think you should try and add Inspiring Call which further supports having something for unlimited handsize. Oath of Ajani, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Abzan Falconer, and Chasm Skulker(good if you include all of that card draw) are a few other ideas.

When I can again I will try and help you find a place for Viral Drake and any others I missed/suggested additionally.

Well that was rather awkward to open both a Hazoret the Fervent, and a promo Kefnet the Mindful at one of my prereleases together lol.I made a cycling deck with of course the kefnet, a Drake Haven + gate to the afterlife which is some awesome synergy, 2x Anointer Priest (Card can't be displayed), an Irrigated Farmland with cards like 3x Impeccable Timing, 1x edifice of authority, 2x Sacred Cat and 2x Annointer Priest. I had so many tokens and so much life gain it was pretty awesome. Except for the fact it could take so long to win one of my matches alone one was like 35-40 minutes it was absurd. I went 2-1 only losing game 2 to a rather strong deck featuring Archfiend of Ifnir with plenty of cycling and a Honored Hydra which was tough to deal with.

From my 2 prize packs I got a Harsh Mentor. Before leaving I bought another kit anyways to get a promo Aven Mindcensor, a Nissa, Steward of Elements, a foil Never / Return and another Irrigated Farmland which wasn't at all bad either.

I was hoping to get an Approach of the Second Sun to try and win with but I never opened one.

I will be going to 2 prereleases later today so if I open one myself depending on what else I have I might try to win with it as well.

I had a friend get a promo one of those, not sure if he ended up using it to actually win however. Probably will now trade for it.

I will be making a casual deck for fnm with the card as I think it's a pretty cool and fun card.

Have you considered As Foretold here maybe? Or do you think that maybe it will be too slow for this?

Anyways looks like a good deck you have here for sure, +1.

April 21, 2017 11:46 p.m.

Dispossess also still needs to be added.

April 21, 2017 4:02 p.m.

Rather than just more Manglehorns in the sideboard abby315, how about use Dispossess potentially instead.

Also put (AKH) beside it too as it otherwise won't display.

WOW really tappedout? I literally spent the last 10 minutes (maybe a bit more?) writing out a reply and I go to preview it before submitting and i'm told "tappedout is down, maybe ornithopters are buzzing on our facebook page." That is such an annoyance as I lost my entire response.

I was basically saying that I appreciate these suggestions to narrow down my list of considerations + the upvote too, that my meta is not overly competitive so there's been a couple cards I always liked using i.e Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger among others, and I only get to play at my lgs 1-2 a month. I happen to be spending money on my modern/standard decks currently so I have little left over to put towards commander currently but I do hope once my college exams are over I should be working again over the summer and I should be able to more easily acquire some of this stuff. Besides the Nissa I do not own any of those other suggestions but I will see about acquiring most if not all of them.

That's just a quick summary anyways. But yeah I will make some changes with those cards to this soon and then see about helping you with your own version when I have more time if you haven't already narrowed it down yourself.

April 20, 2017 10:05 p.m.

Also Ceondoc for demon there might be Lord of the Pit too, as to what else might be in this besides what you said I'm not too sure at the moment.

April 20, 2017 7:48 p.m.

If I were you I would consider adding The Chain Veil works decent with Tezzeret the Seeker .

Also you will definitely want to consider some of the new Amonkhet cards such as Gideon of the Trials and As Foretold.

When I have more time later I will try to help make some cuts to this, but for now maybe give my list here a look for inspiration. It's always changing as I'm not quite entirely settled with how it looks currently but I think its pretty decent so far.

Well I was going to try now building a cycling version of the deck, although i'm really not sure what colours.

I know blue for New Perspectives and White for Approach of the Second Sun clearly, but should I also go green for Shefet Monitor or just Black for Shadow of the Grave? If you happen to come across any such decklists I would like to see what others have done if you come across any it would be appreciated if you share them Zaueski.

Either way i'm going to start with trying such a deck as esper.

April 20, 2017 6:38 p.m.

Yeah I like that idea, wish I could go to it though.

April 20, 2017 6 p.m.

A card I would be interested in seeing a reprint though anyways is Sliver Legion, not entirely sure if that would happen but it is my hope.

Well looks like something got leaked early, and so wizards made an official announcement of it anyways. It's called Iconic Masters.

http://magic.wizards.com/en/products/iconic-masters

You earlier mentioned you thought it was time for Sliver Legion to have a reprint and maybe that could very well come true with this. This following statement I think could support that.

"Iconic Masters offers players a tour through some of the most powerful cards in over 23 years of Magic history. Featuring new artwork on many cards, the set brings an array of massive Angels, Sphinxes, Demons, Dragons, and Hydras alongside some of our favorite and most memorable spells."

I hope to see some commander goodies from this.
