  • I think Elspeth, Knight-Errant can be an acceptable substitution for Power Matrix if needed, although I like the Trample that Power Matrix grants. Likewise Duelist's Heritage is a fair substitute for Battle Mastery and each has their own advantages and disadvantages; Duelist's Heritage sticks around when Isamaru, Hound of Konda dies and this deck has more tutors for Battle Mastery

  • Empyrial Plate is an acceptable alternative to Empyrial Armor but I am not certain I would run both of them. This deck tends to run low on cards in hand and when Empyrial Armor is out the play style changes to accommodate that card. As with Duelist's Heritage and Battle Mastery there are advantages and disadvantages to both Empyrial Plate and Empyrial Armor for this deck; Empyrial Plate sticks around and Empyrial Armor comes down a turn faster unless Sigarda's Aid is in play. This deck tends to run faster and riskier in trade for less resiliency. A more resilient play style, though, is an acceptable alternative and I think the deck can be tweaked to adjust for individual groups, play styles, and meta environments.

  • Regarding recursion I tend not to worry about it (the "fast and risky" plan). At various times the deck has run recursion effects but they tend to take time and resources to use well. At worst recursion cards are a dead draw if there is nothing to recur and at best it gives you some backup. Instead I would rather be drawing new equipment and resources.

  • Godsend is a fun card but I think it would be too slow for this deck. It is a lot of fun in more casual decks in multiplayer, though, in my experience.

  • Thanks for the compliment! I can see Lightmine Field and Clock of Omens doing some work for this deck but, as you said, its difficult to find cards to cut. At this point, unless there are more detrimental changes to the banlist, most modifications to the deck are for direct substitutions of existing cards that, for whatever reason, function better than the existing cards.
