Said on Josu Vess Lich ......


It is certainly interesting. I think it would be decent since this deck is already trying to generate tons of mana so the cost shouldn't be a big deal. The question is whether you really need that life alter effect, bring a player to 20. Could be relevant if there are big life gain decks in your playgroup. One possible drawback could be that it might do some damage to someone, but not giving you tools to follow up and finish them off, then they focus you down. Its biggest problem is that there are already a ton of really good black creatures to run in the 6+ cmc slots. If I were resolving a tutor, I would probably still go for Grave Titan or Sheoldred before I go for this, unless someone is at 100 life. So I think it would be reasonable, just not necessarily better than other options. Just my thoughts.

Said on Angels...


Hey I like what you've done with this list. I am definitely going to make a few changes to my Shalai list. Birthing Pod seems really sweet, since you sac shalai and go get karmic guide which is really important in this deck, and just other good value. Fierce Empath also seems really sweet. Miraculous recovery also seems really interesting because of the instant speed. End step reanimate a Reya is where I want to be!

How have Collective Blessing and Cathar's Crusade performed? To me they seem like they would be a bit underwhelming in this list. What about Cauldron Haze, that one seems really interesting and like something I need to try out.

Oh one card that Im thinking about adding is Devout Witness turn all your cards into artifact and enchantment removal...seems pretty sweet.

Anyway Id love to hear your thoughts.

Hey ive been checking out Hallar and saw your list. It looks solid. Have you had a chance to try it out, if so how has it performed? Do you find that you want a lot of kicker cards, or just a few?

Thanks for commenting. Yeah this deck definintely needs something. I have had surprising trouble actually winning with this list, even though it appears to be a decent decklist, so im sure a bit of spot removal wouldnt hurt. Fleshbag is probably a good one. Id be interested to see your list and see where you went with it. How has yours performed?
