Archetype of Endurance

Enchantment Creature — Boar

Creatures you control have hexproof.

Creatures your opponents control lose hexproof and can't have or gain hexproof.

Renegadespider on Help improve my deck pls

So I'm trying to make the ulimate Genesis Deck that focuses on cheating out Creatures and producing lots of mana to activate Spawnsire, Avacyn, Angel of Hope is for boardwipe protection Archetype of Endurance is for targeting Exile protection, Nylea's Disciple is for life gain from using The One Ring for draw and all the Genesis Cards to cheat my Board state out, except Gelatinous Genesis which for an alt win con. I've managed to get everything out by turn 4 before...but it just doesn't feel fast enough, I brick way too often, by either drawing way too much mana or not drawing enough mana, any advice?

Some more details behind sergiodelrio's answer: If an effect from a resolving spell or activated/triggered ability (Shadowspear, Bonds of Mortality, etc.) changes the characteristics of objects, the set of objects it affects is "locked in" at the time it resolves. If new objects appear later on, they aren't affected. On the other hand, an effect from a static ability (Archetype of Endurance, etc.) continuously updates the set of objects it affects as new things show up.

Another note: If an effect from a resolving spell or activated/triggered ability changes the rules of the game (e.g. "creatures can't block this turn") then the set of objects it affects is not locked in on resolution and it will still apply to new objects that show up later in its duration.

Player A controls a creature with Hexproof; Uril, the Miststalker. Player B controls an ability like Shadowspear or Bonds of Mortality, where it can remove the Hexproof from player A's creature.

Since these abilities are not worded in the same way as Archetype of Endurance, if player A was to Flicker their Uril, the Miststalker, it would regain Hexproof?

Against spot-removal, you could try including Archetype of Endurance and Asceticism (which also grants you the option to regenerate stuff you might otherwise lose).

Alright, I've made some changes based on some recent thoughts I've had about this deck, some cards I've been meaning to add + I've incorporated a few of your good suggestions Profet93, cheers:


  • Ancient Tomb
  • Garruk's Uprising
  • Heroic Intervention
  • Kenrith's Transformation
  • Last March of the Ents
  • Monster Manual
  • Return of the Wildspeaker
  • Sanctum of Ugin
  • Thought Vessel
  • Tribute to the World Tree

  • Out:

  • Archetype of Endurance - I've had success Tooth & Nailing this lad + Platinum Emperion into play for a soft lock, but I agree that the redundancy for the cost is really unnecessary + is not core to the game plan.
  • Dryad Arbor - Kept it in here for that rare but sweet GSZ tutor for turn 1 ramp, but Ancient Tomb is the superior choice by a wide margin, lol.
  • Eldrazi Conscription - Win-more and unnecessary.
  • Endless Atlas - As mentioned, better draw exists in green.
  • Green Sun's Zenith - Removed as my green targets are limited and I think I have enough tutors already.
  • Platinum Emperion - An expensive to cast, unnecessary defense card.
  • Strip Mine - Swapped in Sanctum of Ugin for this. I think the tutor potential might be more handy than land removal.
  • Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - The douche of all douches, this guy is so expensive and is such a kill on sight boi - because he hoses the whole table & typically just makes me the enemy/target, it usually dies to removal. Like, immediately.
  • World Breaker - Swapped out for the more efficient removal spell, Kenrith's Transformation
  • Zhulodok, Void Gorger - I've had a chance to play this guy a couple times now and he's just too clunky in a non-fully colourless build

  • The average CMC is still atrocious here but that's ok, I think some of these changes will help smooth things out a teensy bit. This is my big dumb stompy funsies deck and I don't necessarily need it to be supremely optimized with the perfect curve etc. I do think the revised ramp, draw & removal suites look a wee bit better after these changes and I'm excited to see how it plays.

    NV_1980, Yes, I've already thought about Vigor and Archetype of Endurance and they're also in my Maybevoard for testing. Maybe swap it out for a Carnage Tyrant and see. Apex Devastator didn't really appeal to me to play it in the deck.

    Apex Devastator can be an absolute hero in a deck featuring this many powerful cards. Archetype of Endurance and Vigor also seem like excellent additions to protect your stuff.
