Hey there, I was brewing my own deck earlier and Cryptic Gateway popped into my head, what are your thoughts on it here? I think it's a little expensive but it's a bit like a budget Sneak Attack here.

Hey there, looks like the deck is on its way and a lot of the cards I was going to suggest are already in your maybe board but here are a couple id consider:

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar offer tokens and really awesome anthems.

Eldrazi Monument is great with all the sacrifice fodder you will have.

Patriarch's Bidding just spiked unfortunately, but Living Death is worth considering too. Hope that helps!

Hey there, I've been tinkering with a Ayli list myself - Ayli reflects, Boon or Wound?. I have found the deck to be pretty consistent but easily disrupted. That said here are some of my favorite cards:

Wall of Blood - usually this is my wincon with Vizkopa Guildmage and Ayli. It also goes great with Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption. People never see it coming either.

Your land count could be higher too, I find 34 fine but I do search for Land Tax some games to make it manageable. 35 or so is my preference and I think cutting a few of your 6+ costing cards like Ashen Rider, Emeria Shepherd etc to make room is the best idea. Hope this helps some!

Hey got another card for you: Uba Mask. I think it's a good alternative until you find the lock.

There's also Phenax, God of Deception and even Tariel, Reckoner of Souls. Tariel is fun on theme, and you don't have to build around her really to get value. Just pack the deck with board wipes and good stuff for the win.

I get that, I just think it's better than Comet Storm. It depends on your play group but I really like that it is loss of life so it gets around Solitary Confinement and such. You're totally right it can be a lackluster draw early on but based purely on my own experience it has won or turned around enough games to be a valid choice if you need a solid X damage spell.

Hmm I've never heard or seen someone call Exsanguinate win more. I've definitely won games with it but not because I was really far ahead, it's just a great finisher and better than Comet Storm imo. It doesn't target and requires less mana invested while gaining you 3 times X back in life.

This guy is also a perfect commander for a Mist of Stagnation lock. Things like Web of Inertia and Leyline of the Void can be super oppressive.

Hmm well you probably know better than me honestly, are you able to pay the buyback on Capsize reliably?

August 14, 2017 7:45 p.m.

Mmm how is Oona's Grace working for you? I think Mystic Speculation might be a strict upgrade, putting unwanted lands and such on the bottom of the deck.

August 14, 2017 6:58 p.m.

Hey there, I'm not great with budget lists but I have a few cards to consider:

Mystic Speculation - always love drawing this card, so much value.

Recoup - I'm not sure if you are running enough sorcery spells for this maybe Past in Flames, Shreds of Sanity or Mystic Retrieval instead?

Increasing Vengeance - best spell doubler on a budget imo.

That's about all I can think of atm, hopefully it helps.

August 14, 2017 5:04 p.m.

That's a good point, thanks for pointing that out. I've been so focused on making a Sanguine Bond effect the wincon I kind of forgot about Exquisite Blood. I think I'll try cutting Thalia, Heretic Cathar for Cliffhaven Vampire and see how that goes. Thanks again!

August 14, 2017 3:57 p.m.

hoardofnotions well Defiant Bloodlord is definitely not worth his cmc but he is easily cheated in using Reanimate, Animate Dead or Necromancy and is one of 3 wincons. The bloodlord or Avacyn, Angel of Hope are typically the target for Entomb depending on the table and your hand.

Cliffhaven Vampire may go back in later, the problem is he only wins the game if I have a infinite combo out and in that case Blood Artist is probably better.

August 14, 2017 2:54 p.m.

Anointed Procession would go great here.

August 14, 2017 12:54 p.m.

For sure Possessed Portal is expensive, I have a Master Transmuter I'll probably use in a deck very similar to help. Also, I'm not sure about Omen Machine but honestly it might be worth testing out, I think it performs well against combo decks but not so much against others.

August 13, 2017 11 p.m.

Hey Suns_Champion thanks for the suggestions! I have checked out your Brion deck many times and it is pretty cool how ayli plays a similar role. I really wish Brion could use Wall of Blood you basically have Essence Harvest in the command zone.

Do you think Blind Obedience should take Authority of the Consuls spot?

Test of Endurance may go in too but I need to test some hatebears first. I'm thinking Ethersworn Canonist type cards may be what's needed to slow my meta down atm.

Vault of the Archangel would be cool but I only attack with Marit or Avacyn usually and I'd rather add Sorin, Solemn Visitor for the lifelink if it is needed.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel might be good too, any idea what it would replace?

Forgot to add Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Anointed Procession would also be great.

Ayli reflects, Boon or Wound?

Hi, I need some help on this deck. It is really consistent about winning turn 6-7 but unfortunately that's too slow to compete in my meta. I'm thinking of adding Dark Ritual and Orzhov Signet but overall it will still be slow so I need other options including ways to slow everyone else down, thanks!

Hey, the deck looks good here's a few suggestions:

Gatekeeper of Malakir would probably be better than Go for the Throat. Innocent Blood and Small Pox aren't bad options either.

I think Impact Tremors and/or Purphoros, God of the Forge is good here especially paired with Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. Gets really crazy if you can splurge on a Cloudstone Curio.

You could probably use more resurrection effects like Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding and/or the budget friendly Phyrexian Reclamation.

Hope these help!
