Said on Baral or Talrand?...


I'd just like to throw out there talrand doesn't have to be a one trick pony. I'm not comfortable running a list of 3 creatures and just hoping talrand stays out, going blue good stuff and artifact based winning combos you can easily tutor for is a good way to go. Talrand gets you extra value for spells you are casting anyway, those drakes can also be sacrificed to altars(Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar) giving a better discount than baral if you just want to dig for combos with cantrips. That's just my take on him anyway.

Said on Baral or Talrand?...


That article is pretty sweet, I agree with it for the most part. I personally just picked up talrand and plan to put baral in the 99 because I enjoy cantrips rather than counters and needed a deck to fit Paradox Engine and Isochron Scepter in. I also think a loot effect like baral's is better in izzet or dimir, having it in the command zone in mono blue just doesn't seem like a huge advantage to me and it'll probably get you a lot of hate.

Sorry the above post should have included Paradox Engine as part of the combo.

Desperate Ritual/Pyretic Ritual on Isochron Scepter is a nice one. I'd also run all the other rituals in red for sure.

Personally I like the PWs that have a wrath effect, Chandra, Flamecaller, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are all worth a slot imo.

Daedalus19876 I think it just doesn't seem flashy enough, it's good value for sure though. I always end up cutting it for one reason or another but I think Boros is probably the best guild for it's inclusion since trample isn't as prevalent as haste, vigilance, protection etc.

A church angle, I have seen.

Hey, this is my Archangel Avacyn  Flip project after tearing apart a recent experiment with Ashling the Pilgrim for something more consistent. I'm not great with aggro decks, but here I'm trying to balance voltron and red board wipes as well. Any help is appreciated, specifically I'm not sure how good Puresteel Paladin and Braid of Fire are in this list?

Said on Teferi the fake ......


Just want to throw out Savor the Moment, it's been a beast in teferi for me. You could easily cUT a land for it.

Said on Gisa and Geralf...


Hey, I have a very not budget list for gisa and geralf but it's full of combos if you need any ideas:Life is Milling Me.

My suggestions from your list are to be careful adding Noxious Ghoul since it kills your commander. I like Living Death as a board wipe instead. Also Stitcher Geralf and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip could be replaced imo.

Daedalus19876 well Price of Glory is cool, but I have Abeyance and Orim's Chant in the list as part of my Sunforger package. I just dig War's Toll since it's effects are so one sided.

If you would like to I've made a first draft you can check out:A church angle, have seen. I ended up with a lot less enchantments than I expected, but Stranglehold, War's Toll, Crackdown etc made the cut. Let me know what you think.

Hi, so I'm currently working on a avacyn list myself but I plan on going with more enchantment control. I was wondering if you tried out War's Toll? Seems like it'd be great here.

Also I plan to rely on Sneak Attack heavily, abusing Karmic Guide, Reveillark etc did you consider going that route?

Honestly I think the best way to approach this format is:

1) pick your favorite colors2) Buy all the staples for that color/colorless support

If you are like a lot of players including me, you will cycle through commanders on a weekly basis. I have almost all the white/black/red staples I want so I can throw almost any combination together with minimal cost. Also along the way you may find ones you really like you can come back to occasionally. I agree with MagicalHacker though, if you have trouble finding direction mono colored decks are much easier because of the limited good stuff to choose from, it's also a challenge to finely tune red and/or white decks in this format.

Lol meant np man* autocorrect ugh.

No man, thanks for upvoting my deck! I forgot one more might be worth adding: Terrain Generator.
