Asceticism Discussion

HobbyGamer007 on Nobody has the intention of building a Wall

6 days ago

@bl4ckb0l7 well, once flicker decks have their value engines up, the other players have to work together to dismantle it. If it's 1v1, mulligan for countermagic and keep it up. You can patiently build a wall while keeping mana up to counter the engine or the payoff and win in one big attack. Or switch out some of the buff spells for something like Heroic Intervention, Asceticism, Diplomatic Immunity and the likes. Also a slow and steady value engine naturally is a terrible matchup for an aggro/midgrange deck, so it's rarely gonna be easy against decks like Brago, King Eternal, the one you mentioned, Roon of the Hidden Realm and the likes..

Hey, thank you for your comment and your suggestions Voltaire26 !

I hadn't thought of As Foretold, great option ! I need to test it and find what to replace. But i like !

Plaxcaster Frogling and Sporeback Troll : I didn't build this deck around the + 1 / + 1 counters matter. More attractive in your deck ^^

But that gave me the idea to use other protective spells than counters. Like Steely Resolve, maybe Asceticism, Yavimaya Hollow

But I have to think about which cards to cut ^^

Don't hesitate to share your deck when you've finished your list!

defamagraphy1 I was actually thinking of splashing white for kind of the same idea. the Devoted Druid Vizer Of Remedies mana combo, also the white protection spells. I suppose if I wanted to just have speed in green I could run Arbor Elf Utopia Sprawl and Devoted Druid Melira, Sylvok Outcast for quicker ramp

Honestly, Bow of Nylea Ezuri, Renegade Leader and Asceticism made their way into my list due to the amount of burn and aggro decks at my LGS to help me deal with those issues. Might be best to just commit to just one way of winning rather than having a viable back up plan if it speeds up the game by a turn or more even if it leaves me vulnerable to combo interruption that is game ending.

Hynx Appreciate the tips, but I don't think you got the point of the deck. It isn't to ramp and hard cast the big boys. It runs low to the ground and quick with aggro play until it has enough ramp to drop a big creature or preferably Primal Surge to get the entire deck(or as much of it as I choose) onto the battle field. While Elvish Piper wouldn't be a bad test run in place of Bow of Nylea or Nylea, God of the Hunt. Unfortunately I don't really have much use for the instants you recommended as protection since they would definitely fizzle out Primal Surge if cast much sooner than intended in exchange for saving many dorks that I don't really care about. Dosan the Falling Leaf could be a decent preventative measure, but mostly I rely on Asceticism to protect my board. Thank you for the suggestions!

So, I've got a couple of suggestions, just off the top of my head that I think could greatly help you out, in both short term and long term:

-1 Nissa Revane +1 Karn Liberated My reasoning here is relatively simple. You're deck isn't focused on life gain and you don't run Nissa's Chosen. Her ultimate is wonderful, if, you can get there. But I think you can remove her because her ultimate is more of a dream than a reality.

-1 Lotus Cobra +1 Fauna Shaman I personally think that the cobra isnt really needed since you produce so much mana as it is. I think Fauna Shaman personally just helps you get there, a lot faster, and additionally its a Survival of the Fittest on a stick. Never hurts to have a second answer in case your first one gets blown up.

-14 Forest +14 Snow-Covered Forest I see that you're going for the Extraplanar Lens answer here which I can greatly appreciate, but since they are much easier to fins now, I would trade out all of your regular Forests for the Snow-covered Forests, or vice versa.

-1 Nissa, Vital Force +1 Asceticism Outside of the fact that we are dropping a same CMC permanent, I think Asceticism is going to do a LOT more for you in the grand scheme of things. Sure, Nissa, Vital Force makes a hasty, 5/5 elemental land for you, but its not something that I would rely on. The same can be said for her second ability. It's a more expensive Eternal Witness card altogether and I don't think it does enough in the deck to keep its spot. Asceticism protects your creatures in a couple of ways which is extremely advantageous in your case.

-1 Garruk's Uprising +1 Boseiju, Who Shelters All

Garruk's Uprising is just alright. It does some beneficial things, but not consistently. In some cases, I think you're going to find that the card is just dead in your hand more times than you would like. Another use commented that you need to be running more lands, and I think that that is true to a certain extent. Boseiju, Who Shelters All can let you cast an uncounterable Chord of Calling and more importantly, Tooth and Nail. Not to mention there are just other things in your deck that this also greatly synergies with.

-1 Wooded Foothills +1 Cavern of Souls Think of it as Boseiju, Who Shelters All but for creatures. Most likely naming elves.

-1 Glistener Elf +1 Yavimaya Hollow Simple explanation. Glistener Elf just doesnt quite fit the theme here, where I think Yavimaya Hollow can help you avoid certain critical or GG situations.

-1 Garruk, Unleashed +1 Wirewood Lodge This Garruk isn't really doing anything for you. I think that he performs rather slow, and there are just better things that you can replace him with. We are still on the topic of lands so I think Wirewood Lodge is a pretty obvious choice. That card has an astronomical amount of value.

-1 Collective Unconscious +1 Maze of Ith Pretty easy reasoning. Maze of Ith helps you not take hits from potent creatures and I think that this card is far more critical than Collective Unconscious. You also have multiple ways to draw. It won't hurt to lose just one of them.

-1 Kogla, the Titan Ape +1 Vigor As much as I think Kogla can do some work, I think Vigor will serve you better. He's a literal pain to get rid of and things only get worse from that point forward. Kogla, the Titan Ape has targeted removal and in some cases I think that you may not be able to target some of your opponents more critical creatures.

-1 Deranged Hermit +1 Gaea's Herald
While Deranged Hermit is good for some token generation, I don't think he does that much else for you. It may synergy with Earthcraft but that's about it. I would remove him and replace him with Gaea's Herald just because that's more pressure you're putting on your opponents' to deal with you.

-1 Earthcraft +1 Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre While Earthcraft is a very good card, I don't think the price tag justifies having it in your deck, particularly for what it does. I think adding in the original Ulamog can do just as much, if not more than Earthcraft can for you.

I like the build thus far- not going to do much else with it. Will probably make a more competitive(ish) infect version down the road Cold-Eyed Selkie included. I like Plaxcaster Frogling and Will-o'-the-Wisp, but find it hard to cut anything else here especially since i have Asceticism- Any suggestions welcome.

Drolin22 on Forest Proliferate

I would add Bow of Nylea and Asceticism. Triumph of Ferocity should be also a good addition to the deck.
