Abeyance Discussion

acthompson on OG Akroma EDH

Update 6/9/21: Having played this deck several times, uneven play patterns started becoming apparent. First, turns were taking too long. This was not because of complexity but rather indecision. Should I play and activate Jayemdae Tome or play Akroma, Angel of Wrath ? Second, when Akroma, Angel of Wrath hit the battlefield I immediately became threat numero uno. Moreover, I couldn't maintain pressure without her. I had to rely too much on Akroma (although to be fair, let's all remember, it's OG mono-white so whatcha gonna do?). Third, while I could cycle though the deck it was at the cost of more impactful cards. Abeyance and Shelter are great but by themselves they don't do much.

Enter OG Akroma EDH v.2

I second Sunforger . But I disagree about it not being that good. It protects your board with Teferi's Protection , Debt of Loyalty , Deflecting Swat and Boros Charm , it removes creatures with Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile and my favorite: Settle the Wreckage , it kills other problematic permanents wit Disenchant , Chaos Warp or Wear / Tear , can shut players down with Silence , Abeyance or Orim's Chant , and in my deck, it wins the game by searching and casting both Gideon's Sacrifice and Arcbond on the same Indestructible creature. It will even find the Lightning Bolt to start the chain.

Sunforger is one of the best boros equipments, at least if you can cheat a bit on the equip cost. But we have Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist , Brass Squire , Puresteel Paladin , Sigarda's Aid , Halvar, God of Battle  Flip and a few others to help with that

plakjekaas and Abeyance and Aura Blast have given white card draw for ages, all you did was prove my point that for most of the games history each colour has had its own identity, things it specialized in, while dipping its toes into other colour effects though never as good.

I used that example specifically because yes while blue has had access to direct damage in some sets its never been a mainstay of the colour or an expectation from those that play it. You don't hear people up in arms to increase these cards in blue either because it doesn't make sense for the colour. White does not draw cards efficiently... period, its just a fact of the colour (i dont mean to pick on white, its playerbase seem to be making the fuss though).

I agree that planeswalkers were the beginning of the end but I stopped beating that horse years ago lol, they are part of the game weather I like it or not.

Apollo_Paladin Thanks for the recommendations! I've only been playing for several months, so I'm still unaware of many of the cards old hands consider no brainers. I'll definitely be using Story Circle. And Silence instead of Abeyance, as the card drawing mechanic can put me at risk of decking myself if I do it too much, and the game goes on too long.

Absolutely love it! I've always been one to believe that with the right build, mono-white can be a very powerful foe to go against and gets hated on sadly. (Sorry I'm passionate about white lol.

Abeyance and Angel's Grace are two solid cards I keep in my deck, Abeyance might be fitting in here judging by the vibe.

DadHumanPraetor - Great suggestions! I threw a couple of those pieces in there that I actually own, but just slipped my mind, I love the idea of imprinting Abeyance on Isochron Scepter, nice way to deal with blue players.

Alms Collector and Loxodon Gatekeeper and Archangel of Tithes all seem to fit here. Maybe Aurification and by far my favorite white instant is Abeyance

I thing Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power make sense in this deck, because even if you end up ramping your opponents with the double white mana, you get draw cards if they use it to cast multiple spells.
