I used to play magic at boyscout camp way back in the day, but it was not until just 2 years ago that i started to get back into it. I would say that I am pretty good now, and have not gotten worse than a top 8 in any attended event for a long time; but I still have a lot to learn and am always open to suggestions and discussion.

Said on B/W Deck Attempt...

#1

Looks to me like you are stuck between tokens and aristocrats archetypes. Here are primers on both: Aristocrats, Tokens

I agree with your statement that the new zombos did not really add much. Some are neat (like Lord of the Accursed), but I do not think they are strict upgrades over anything you have. Dread Wanderer -might- be a better version of Diregraf Ghoul, but I have a hard time saying it is strictly better.

Other B/W soul sisters lists that I've seen do well usually include Illness in the Ranks combined with Forbidden Orchard. Mercy Killing also becomes super good. I've also always seen them with Dark Confidant, and Archangel of Thune.

@ cplvela0811

I did read your advice. I just have not gotten around to changes. I have been going to my current shop for about 3 months, and have been bringing a different deck each time. As such, I have been focused on all the different decks I have brought. But with the new shiny toys Amonkhet is bringing us (looks like we both pegged the same cards for this style of deck being Nissa, Steward of Elements, and Rhonas the Indomitable), I will be doing some revisions once the cards come. I am still a bit hesitant on Thought Scour, and I am not sure that Tasigur, the Golden Fang hurts delerium that much as he can also fill your graveyard back up -- but you obviously have much more experience with the deck than I do.

That aside, I do have a few questions. I have never liked running Liliana of the Veil with counterspells or cards with flash. Granted, you are only running 2 Stubborn Denials, and 3 Snapcaster Mage with 2 Liliana of the Veil. Do you bump into situations often where you top deck a Stubborn Denial with a Liliana of the Veil in play? It would kind of feel bad not being able to hold up that denial on your opponent's turn.

Also, what would be your opinion on Grisly Salvage vs Thought Scour. It is not a turn 1 play, obviously. But being able to dig deeper and pick a threat is not bad for costing an extra mana. Then again, adding another 2 drop to the already crowded slot might also feel bad. But between salvage and Traverse the Ulvenwald, being able to dig/tutor for Rhonas the Indomitable, or a Tarmogoyf to turn on Rhonas the Indomitable might be a solid play.

And last but not least, why cut the Garruk Wildspeaker for Nissa, Steward of Elements. I think I agree with you on the switch as they both do fairly similar things in establishing some great tempo and eventually winning with the ultimate. Just want to hear your reasoning for it. Thanks!

@biorose671 I personally think it depends on how tempo heavy your deck is. Bitterblossom is good in deck that can out tempo opponents and keep them off balance long enough to just kill them with goyf, flayer, and faerie tokens. But the more midrange and control-y you make the deck, the worse blossom becomes as over the course of a 13 turn game, blossom can start to really wear on you. That's my 2 cents from playing a similar list, and also trying to cram my bitterblossoms into any deck I can. cplvela0811 might have a different opinion though.

Said on Allies - As ......

#6

@Redace878 both of those allies are terrible though... if red is splashed, it's for Akoum Battlesinger, Firemantle Mage, and Reckless Bushwhacker.

@ehuez I would consider maybe cutting a Talus Paladin or two as they can be clunky if you don't hit a Harabaz Druid as you only have 20 lands. I would then consider adding Return to the Ranks, Mirror Entity (a favorite of mine), Metallic Mimic, or maybe Condemn as a budget Path to Exile. Captain's Claws might also be the correct call. I have also had success with Mentor of the Meek, but I don't think that it's the correct card for this deck.

How sold are you on sticking to zombies? If not totally sold, you might be interested in looking at other sacrifice-centric shells such as Aristocrats, Melira Company, and Rally decks. The Rally link was for Standard, but can fairly easily be adapted to modern.

I have seen some Esper lists consider running Sorin, Grim Nemesis over Elspeth, Sun's Champion. What would your thoughts be on the matter?

Bloodghast is a lot like Nether Traitor and Gravecrawler. I have also found Viscera Seer useful in trying to dig for Bridge from Below when you do not have an opening hand with it.

Path to Exile > Fatal Push for this deck as path exiles rather than kills -- allowing you to keep bridges in your graveyard.

Rotting Rats has also been an mvp for me. Allowing you some interaction with your opponent, giving a discard outlet for bridge, being a zombie, and being able to unearth to restart your combos.

Insolent Neonate can also make for some nasty turn 1 plays if you have it in your hand with Bridge from Below. Due to how it is worded, you discard before you sacrifice him, giving you a 2/2 zombie to swing with on turn 2.

I would like Vizier if it allowed us to cast if though the card had flash. But otherwise, he feels a bit clunky. I think Nissa could be a welcome addition. It allows us to get an ally into play and hold one in our hand for instant speed triggers with Aether Vial. I think she likely needs to be used in a deck with Serum Visions though, so she might work best in more of a midrange ally shell compared to the more aggressive lists. She kind of feels a bit like Domri Rade.
