Authority of the Consuls Discussion

ZendikariWol on Life gain synergy deck

This is two different decks fighting each other for space.

One deck is BW Ally lifegain/rally. For that, you want to be running Bloodbond Vampire, Drana's Emissary, Kalastria Healer (which absolutely wins games), Zulaport Cutthroat, maybe Lantern Scout.

The other is Mono-White lifegain. Ajani's Welcome, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Authority of the Consuls, Archangel of Thune, Ashes of the Abhorrent for the sideboard, maybe Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Lone Rider  Flip, perhaps, as a finisher, Nyx-Fleece Ram is stunningly potent against fast creature decks, in a similar vein to the also-pioneer-legal Wall of Essence.

I think your first step in making improvements to this deck is deciding which of these your deck wants to be.

While this seems like a great pick against most of the metagame, It really doesn't do anything against control decks, which are a sizeable chunk of the tier builds. That being said, the deck needs 1-drops to reach it's full potential. Something to play turn 1 against aggro. I like Authority of the Consuls here. Also, Soul-Scar Mage notably works nicely with Deafening Clarion.

Authority of the Consuls, & Blind Obedience can be back-breakers. Even if you only have Heliod out...He becomes active with all those counters & commander dmg kills are possible.

enrico81, thank you for the suggestions. I am already running Authority of the Consuls . I am running Blind Obedience rather than Kismet . The others just didn’t make the cut. I am trying very hard to keep this deck’s average CMC close to 2.5.

What do you think about cards like Patient Rebuilding , Karmic Justice , Kismet and Authority of the Consuls ? I like this deck and I will make my personal version ;-)

Have you thought about adding in Authority of the Consuls in the sideboard for aggro matchups?

Yeah you're right, Tata. Authority of the Consuls is for the Kaalia player in my group. It's a house. If graveyard plays get stronger then I'll bring in Rest in Peace
