Aura of Silence Discussion

Arcaneful on Ghen Enchantments

Cuts:

Gravebreaker Lamia: You do get to tutor something to the grave, but you don't really cast from the grave. I'd rather just play Final Parting and also tutor something to hand.

The Birth of Meletis is kinda meh. It's an early enchanment yes but I feel it doesn't do much. I'd rather play an Luminarch Ascension or just a mana rock.

Mythos of Snapdax seems too restrictive. Another boardwipe sounds much better. Still a low costing one such as Wrath of God, or the new one from commander legends that's mono white and 5 mana Slash the Ranks.

Merciless Eviction should go in for most boardwipes as it's so good. Perhaps for Ruinous Ultimatum as that is very color restrictive and merciless is less mana.

Aphemia, the Cacophony isn't that good.

With your low curve and many rocks I'd cut a land or cut the two Diamonds as they're kinda bad. Sadly. They're acceptable in mono colored but not really here.

Additions:

Ghostly Prison/Sphere of Safety is necessary pillowfort. There's a black version too with cumulative upkeep as well. Might be good in our meta against many of David's decks, as well as mine.

Alseid of Life's Bounty is just great. Protects either Ghen or an enchantment you don't want dying at that time.

Agent of Erebos: Some much needed gravehate.

Aegis of the Gods is good for protection against direct burn.

Spirit of the Labyrinth is good if you're leaning into the staxxy parts of cards like Eidolon of Rhetoric. Along the same lines Stony Silence and Aura of Silence are nice picks.

I have many more recommendations but these are the start. I don't want to particularly overwhelm or change the deck.

GL my guy.

Apollo_Paladin on Lieutenant Worf, Set Phasers To Stun.

Hey, I'm glad you found the suggestions helpful! I took another quick look at the deck to see if there was anything else I could point out. I hope you don't take it as criticism, your existing build is already quite interesting imo. Nevertheless, here goes:

  • It's at least a few bucks per card since they're one of the more useful Vintage/Legacy uncommons for control decks (which I'd definitely consider yours), but Ghostly Prison achieves a similar - but better - effect to the Aura of Silence option you mentioned in the description. I find this card works amazingly well as attrition in a variety of deck builds and against a wide array of opponents' deck types, so I had no qualms about dropping a bit of cash on 3x of them myself. Not sure if they'd find a home in this deck for you or not, but it seems worth a mention at least.

  • I'm not sure if the extra casting cost would be a factor for you, but Prison Term is infinitely more useful than Pacifism since you can just lay it out on any creature and then opt to move it if a bigger threat comes out.

  • Also, Knight of the White Orchid can be extremely useful in decks where you want to drop 3 or 4-mana cards as early as possible. He can be a fantastic Turn 2 play when you've already got a land card in-hand...just play him out against your opponent's 3 mana, fish out a Plains, and then lay one down from in-hand. He also keeps with your Knight/First Strike theme that you have going on.

  • Selfless Savior is a fairly new-release card, and is a mana-free way to give any other creature you've got Indestructible (would be nice to have something survive your own Wrath of Gods on occasion perhaps)...

  • The only other suggestion I can think to offer would be perhaps some protection for your existing Artifacts/Enchantments in play since that seems to be a key theme. Cards like Rebuff the Wicked and Mana Tithe can really help out, particularly since Counterspell effects are almost exclusively for Blue decks & so opponents generally don't see them coming. It seems like keeping those in play once you get them out is fairly important to your build.

Azeworai on The Lion of Jamuraa

I am of two minds on this deck.

1) I am extremely fond of anyone who utilizes older, lesser-known creatures as a general of their deck.

2) The list itself seems incredibly janky.

Either way, I bloody love it!

For actual recommendations, I suppose I should grant a few.

Abolish is a card that people do not anticipate, thence I have gladly included it in some of my multi-coloured White lists. I would try it.

Reverent Mantra is just a splendid card. It nullifies a kill spell out of nowhere, all whilst being hilarious against certain wraths.

Just as a utility land, Hall of Heliod's Generosity is able to retrieve some fallen utility enchantments. Merely looping an Aura of Silence can be quite meritorious.

Lastly, I do not know how effective it would be in this list, but Balancing Act is my favourite wrath effect. Try it, then cut it.

I do hope this is of some aid.

For some older commanders of my own, I have a fair few.

Hazezon Tamar

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves

Adun Oakenshield

Bladewing the Risen

Feel free to write comments of antipathy anent my annoying offerings.

Good day to you.

CodeKain on God-Eternal hatebears

Really nice list, I love hatebears, heheh.

Unless you are particularly on a budget, I'd advise you to add some other bears, such as Alms Collector, Leonin Arbiter, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Glowrider.

Suppression Field (hits fetchlands too) and Aura of Silence may also be highly desirable.

For artifacts, you may consider also Damping Sphere to hose storm decks, and Pearl Medallion to reduce the cost of basically everything you play.

Some of them are quite pricey though, I know, but with time this deck will become a force to be reckoned with!

You'll also want some removal for your deck. Cards that would be good for this are Swords to Plowshares , Valorous Stance, Condemn , and Settle the Wreckage to keep the big creatures away from you.

There is also artifact/enchantment removal you should have like Crush Contraband , Aura of Silence which can also slow your opponents down, and Forsake the Worldly which can also be cycled away for 1 card.

Some board wipes can also be very good like Cleansing Nova , Fumigate , Mass Calcify this one costs a lot of mana so I wouldn't recommend it too much , Rout which has the advantage of being able to be used at instant speed. There is also Martial Coup which if you put enough mana into it then you'll have some soldiers on board after everything is over.

Also while you're kind of on to it already, more cards which discourages your opponents from casting their stuff so that you have more to work with: AEther Barrier, Aura of Silence, Aven Mindcensor, Frozen Aether, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Land Equilibrium, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Mana Breach, Overburden, Suture Priest
