Said on What is your ......


I like playing against big dumb creature decks. Most of my deck are not creature focused. So its seeing how my decks can Terminate the creatures or keep them at bay until I can hopefully win.

I mean, I'm not running cancel. And while Force of Negation is a great card, the power level is too high and I am not running enough blue cards to make it worth it. I would rather run Swan Song or Flusterstorm if I wanted more counters.

They could reprint in the future. I'd say sell it in the next week, sooner = better.

Cards like Greater Auramancy or Sterling Grove will give you mass hexproof. There is also Enchanted Evening which would then in turn gives everything you have hexproof.

With Enchanted Evening, you can do some silly things like run Calming Verse and/or Aura Thief. Also, you don't even need a sac outlet with thief since you're running the red shrines.

Said on Shrines of Sisay...


Deck looks fun. Though, it doesn't looks like you have enough support for the yawgmoth/coffers combo, you only have demonic tutor. I would recommend Sylvan Scrying, Nylea's Intervention, or any number of other land tutors if you keep it.

And I would also recommend Generous Gift over Chaos Warp because a 3/3 shouldn't mean anything to you but I have seen chaos warp go very, very bad.

At some point we should just let this thread die because its now become the size of a small book.

Plenty of great, good, and bad arguments from all sides, but for the last few pages its just been wheel spinning.

Would consider adding 2-card combos that either win the game or make target opponent lose the game?

The former, while not infinite, performs nearly the same function.

Looks good. Though, outside of casting shrines in hand, you don't have any way that I see to boost Sisay's power in order to better take advantage of her ability.

Sisay I believe makes the most sense for playing all the shrines.

You need a 5 color commander and only a few help with the shrines. Golas helps to ramp and has an added bonus stapled to him. Ramos is maybe since it will slowly ramp you. Jegantha is probably the best ramp option. Sisay though, with a little work, can tutor all of the shrines to the battle field since all the shrines are also legendary.

Outside of those 4, I don't think any of the other 5 color commander's are a good shrine option unless the shrines are more a sub-theme (like morophon tribal deck that happens to have shrines).

So I'm going to put all of the shrines in. But when I put up this list, Core 21 cards weren't available to be put up yet.

Maze's end is there to have another win-con. The deck is a bit short on those. I could stream line it with more land tutors than just Maze's End itself, Circuitous Route, and Nylea's Intervention. Mostly, it is there for a funny win condition. I'm intentionally trying to build a more janky, not-super-powerful deck.

It might come out because doing some play-testing with the Estrid and it becomes basically impossible if she hits her ultimate even once without adding some land recursion. It just needs to be replaced with somethings else if I do remove it.

Do you know where there is evidence of her being a terf or not accepting of transgender? Not saying she isn't but the only thing I found was when a player wrote on some lands, "No TERFs on Gruul Turf!", which you mentioned but that didn't come from the artist herself.
