Akroma's Memorial Discussion
1 day ago
Cool deck, Selvala has been a pet deck of mine for years and one I always go back to. I don't know that it'll ever break that barrier of being on the fringe of the better decks but that's not the end of the world. Curious what you think of Cloudstone Curio in here? I've actually run it for awhile but it never ends up on the field since if I do have a tutor I'm usually looking for something else.
My deck is purposefully less streamlined in order to play with more of a midrange strategy so I've dumped a few of the dorks for heavier cards like ( Alhammarret's Archive Akroma's Memorial and Mana Reflection . I still feel like I've nearly always had a turn 2 Selvala play, and fairly often can ramp into one of those bombs right off the bat.
One recent add I've made that you might want to test with is Ranger-Captain of Eos . Tutoring for Quirion Ranger or Symbiote is great, and then you have that Silence effect rattlesnake on the board. Another card that just over-performs all the time for me is the classic Storm Seeker . In a competitive meta when someone goes Ad Naus at the end step, responding with an instant speed direct damage spell in green gets a great laugh at the table.
Another interaction you might want to play with is Penance or any other similar effect. If you have a way to tap/untap Selvala and you have Penance on the table, you can mill out your opponents and win without giving up priority.
Lastly, since you are referring to a comp meta, any reason you're not running Sylvan Library? It's a slam dunk to draw you three every turn when you're gaining tons of life with Selvala.
Anyway - great deck!

I'm working on a Rat tribal commander deck with Marrow-Gnawer as the commander, and I'm wondering about how his activated ability would work with Akroma's Memorial . It's the cost that requires a creature be chosen, not the ability itself, and it says "Sacrifice a Rat," not "Sacrifice target Rat." Would I still be able to use his ability or would the protection from black prevent me from doing it?

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is an extremely powerful card, allowing you to tutor and cheat into play game-winning auras like Eldrazi Conscription or Ethereal Armor . It's particularly great if you have an Argothian Enchantress in play--it's pretty hard to recover from a 10/11 with Shroud and Annihilator 2.
Sylvan Library is an all-around fantastic enchantment, allowing you to organize the top of your deck or gain an additional card if necessary.
I think you can probably cut some of your higher CMC cards. Akroma's Memorial is powerful, but not really necessary. You also have too many effects returning enchantments to play - you can probably cut a few of those.

I am not fond of aeon engine, because reversing turn order is not a very useful effect, and can be abused to prevent a player from taking a turn; such effects should have been kept in un-sets, in my mind.
However, that new version of Chainer is quire awesome; is he the fourth character from the Weatherlight saga to be given a new card? I hope not, since he lived long after that story was over. The fact that the creatures that he reanimates do not become nightmares is a flavor fail, unfortunately. I now wonder if there shall be a new version of Braids in the future, or perhaps a card of Chainer’s mentor, Skellum?
Bloodthirsty blade is a very unique and interesting design, and does anyone here think that that is Gerrard in the artwork, when he and Urza were forced to fight each other?
The reprint of Geth is nice, since he has become expensive, recently.
That new demon is quite awesome, as it is essentially a second Phyrexian Obliterator for this format; its mana cost is rather high, but the fact that it has madness helps to balance that.
Skyfire phoenix is a very nice card, and I especially appreciate the artwork; does it remind anyone here of the Firebird segment of Disney’s Fantasia 2000?
Yes, there is a new version of Greven! I especially like how his artwork is a dark parallel to the artwork in the new version Gerrard, although I do not remember if the two of them ever fight (although I still am reading Prophecy, and have not yet reached the Invasion cycle in the novels).
That reprint of Soul Foundry is great; it was not terribly expensive, but it still was long overdue for a reprint, in my mind; since I started playing this game in 2003, when I was still in high school, I have many fond memories (and some not-so-fond) of that card.
The reprint of Pristine Angel is also nice, but I do wish that she had been given new art for it. I actually am surprised that WotC did not reprint Luminous Angel , because she would have been perfect for the populate deck.
Mire in misery is definitely a bend for black, but at least it does not outright destroy enchantments.
