Fritzn on How do you, personally, balance …

2 months ago

I start with an even distribution of basics at 36 slots, add in Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, and Ash Barrens.

I rebalance the number based on the pie chart. depending on the number of colors I run, I switch out for dual lands (preferably that don't enter tapped), command tower, whatever else I feel may fit. If my costs are roughly even, I add my basic mana rocks (Sol Ring, Marble Diamond, Azorius Signet).

usually though my distribution is 80% 1 color, 20% another (on my 2 colored decks) so I will not run a rock for the larger color, I will run more cycle lands, if my overall costs are lower, or if I don't have many creatures with multiple pips in their casting cost, I will be more willing to run a lifegain land or a scry land, even though they enter tapped.

@Saccox I was looking into ramp ideas and in an earlier draft had Azorius Signet, but your idea might be better yet. I’ll keep it in mind.

Turn to Frog

Resculpt

Ghostly Flicker

Azorius Signet

Izzet Signet

Boros Signet

The Celestus (it's basically better Commander's Sphere)

Sol Ring (Because it's a literal must-include in the format now)

Boros Charm

Drop Thrummingbird, Grateful Apparition, and Karn's Bastion, they're literally pointless. Niko is going to be using his +1 ability to make your ETB creatures bounce often enough that you don't need the extra loyalty on him, and there's literally nothing else in the deck that gets counters except for Lost Auramancers and well... you don't want them to get more counters.

Speaking of the Lost Auramancers, drop them and Protean Thaumaturge because that's just... well it's just a bad combo, and also doesn't work the way you think it does. Vanishing triggers at the beginning of your upkeep, and the creature is only sacrificed during the resolution of that ability when it determines that the creature has no counters left on it, so you literally can't do it, as they only stay a copy until end of turn, and you don't have any enchantments with flash.

Possibly trade Imprisoned in the Moon for Oblivion Ring, as it's strictly better for removing anything other than a commander, or run both, since you're light on removal overall.

Drop the Suture Priest, as it has nothing to do with the decks theme, same with Daxos of Meletis.

Add a Monk Idealist, it's identical to Auramancer, and backups are good to have.

Add Guile as another synergy for Dovescape, and get infinite 1/1 birbs whenever any opponent casts a non-creature spell.

Add an Azorius Signet (I can't believe it's not in the list already).

You obviously need card draw, so add a Mulldrifter and/or an [Omen of the Sea].

Lastly, slot in an Archon of Sun's Grace and a Luminarch Ascension because most of your creatures are rather weak, and you have no way of protecting yourself from decking out.

Nice. But the correct format name is Friendly Pauper Brawl.

I would add at least two more lands.

Some other cards to improve the deck:

+1 from me.

Hey, well done so far on a budget.

Unfortunately, Ranar has been errata to instead say, "Whenever one or more cards are put into exile from your hand or a spell or ability you control exiles one or more permanents from the battlefield, create a 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying". This change means Ranar + Samurai of the Pale Curtain + Blasting Station isn't an infinite combo anymore. The act of sacing a Spirit with Station is a cost not a spell or ability. Ranar now cares about the source that originally made the permanent leave the battlefield and the original source has to exile the permanent which Station doesn't do.

Samurai of the Pale Curtain's ability to exile opponent's permanents is also hindered by this errata because now Ranar cares about the source that removed the permanent from the battlefield before Samurai exiles that card. For example, if you destroy an opponent's artifact with Disenchant that permanent is destroyed and then Samurai exiles that permanent when it goes to the graveyard, but you don't create a Spirit by Ranar. The original source that made the permanent leave the battlefield is a spell, Disenchant, but Disenchant doesn't exile and it must to create a Spirit. Swords to Plowshares still works fine since it exiles the creature as the original source doing the exile.

Ranar + Blasting Station + Restoration Angel + Felidar Guardian is still a win condition infinite combo since the errata to Ranar doesn't change it's effect with blinking permanents.


30 lands is a low amount with only 5 sources of ramp. Consider 5 more budget lands and ramp?

A excellent budget interaction with blink is Palace Jailer since when Jailer is blinked the exiled creature doesn't return to the battlefield, that only happens when you lose the monarch not when Jailer leaves the battlefield. This makes Jailer when blinked an engine to exile opponent's creatures which also creates Spirit tokens by Ranar. Jailer also gives you the monarch when it's blinked for a repeatable draw source at your end step. Spirit tokens help to defend as blockers to keep the monarch since the only way you lose the monarch is by an opponent doing combat damage to you or an opponent plays a card that makes them the monarch.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Mana talk:

Minimizing taplands is generally good but expensive (as you know). Plan to eventually replace stuff like the Vivids, snow-duals, and whatever the shorthand for Transguild Promenade is (which, btw, this is twice as slow as a normal tapped land and should 100% be replaced). Yes, even eventually replace the 'gain 1 life' lands that I love :(

I don't know the exact recommended land count. I see as low as 29 (with lots of 0cmc extra expensive cards) and as high as low 40s. I've been targeting 35ish with another 7-8 mana rocks, but I'm not in Green. In Green, you can run 2cmc ramp spells instead of 2cmc mana rocks. like Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Farseek.

With all of your land-tutor creatures, make sure you have enough targets. Since you're Chulane, erring on more lands overall might be better?

2 mana rocks like Azorius Signet and Arcane Signet are going be substantially stronger than 3cmc stuff like Selesnya Locket.

Your Brogo list looks like a good start. In my opinion the biggest thing that could improve your list is to run more mana rocks. Make sure the ones you run come in untapped as you can then blink them with Brogo for extra value to play more spells on second main or hold up interaction for opponents turns.

Start with Arcane Signet, Azorius Signet, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, and Thran Dynamo.

If your budget allows for it Talisman of Progress, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt and Grim Monolith.

Next I would consider running a few more low CMC interaction spells like Counterspell, Delay, Path to Exile, Negate, and Arcane Denial.

I hope that helps with your build. Good luck!
