Basri Ket Discussion

Minousmancer the suggestions I gave earlier are standard rotation survivable, but here are some other suggestions.

Castle Ardenvale for making tokens. A little slow, but doesn't take up a spell slot.

Improbable Alliance is an ok card. If you have lots of card draw, you get lots of tokens.

The Birth of Meletis is too good to pass up.

Stolen by the Fae is an option.

Basri Ket is one to think about.

mjgilbert26 The token producers you recommended are ok, but are a bit too high mana. You want to be able to cast Transmogrify on turn four. Also, creatures that create tokens are unusable, as the only creature in the deck should be Terror of the Peaks so you have a 100% chance of hitting it.

Basri Ket is screaming to be in the deck. Not as budget friends but also not ridiculous. 1 or 2 Abzan Falconer would allow you to have flying since it looks like you have many ways of getting +1/+1 counters. Raise the Alarm is a decent way of getting more tokens out 1 mana per to replace Sun Sentinel. You should also have 4x Haazda Marshal. 1 mana drop and very quickly able to make more soldiers.

Conclave Mentor, Conclave Mentor, Conclave Mentor! Such a great card for Selesnya Counters. Basri Ket is also a nice addition. Basri's Lieutenant would be pretty rad given your list as well, as it can give you counters, as well as make tokens.

Hier ein paar Vorschläge:

Hier noch als Überlegung zwei billige kreaturen, um noch aggressiver/schneller zu sein: Soldier of the Pantheon, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip

If you'd like some inspiration for your list, I have 2 Orzhov lists you can look at that I like. This one is more in tune with what you're looking to do, this other one is more based discouraging the opponent from doing anything by playing cards that make them lose life for interactions. Might be worth checking out!


Problem Cards/Concerns

  • Baneslayer Angel (Good in a vacuum, not great for what this list wants to do. A touch too slow.)
  • Tymaret, Chosen from Death (Too cute. Functionally he doesn't bring you closer to your Vito win-con, and his ability isn't really what you'd want to be spending mana on to do so.)
  • Ill-Gotten Inheritance (I see what you're going for here, but it also feels too cute. It's not bad, just not fantastic either.
  • Basri Ket (He's just making bad cards better. He's unnecessary for your Vito win-con.)
  • Evolving Wilds (This can easily be swapped for Fabled Passage, does the same thing but can have lands enter untapped.)
  • Radiant Fountain (You're not going to be finding this on the draw, and doesn't really help you otherwise. Might as well swap that for another Swamp)
  • Scoured Barrens and Temple of Silence (All for these, but for the amount of 1-3 drop creatures you're looking to play, it would seem like you're going to be running into some mana issues. Would absolutely put in some Godless Shrine for this list since you can just heal back the damage it deals anyhow)
  • Griffin Aerie (Another cute card. I get what you're going for with it, but I don't know how well it helps you get into your Vito win-con.)
  • Light of Hope (Feels a bit niche. Not quite cute, just niche. There's likely better cards than this.)

As a general note, decent cards that make bad cards better aren't the answer. Look at how your win condition is typically met, and find more direct and impactful ways to influence it.


Cards You Got Right

I think you're right that Samut would join.

I think Basri Ket could replace Gideon as the monowhite member.

Oath of Basri

Legendary Enchantment

When Oath of Basri enters the battlefield, create two 1/1 white Soldier creature tokens. (Yes this is to Echo Oath of Gideon as well as Basri Ket's

Creatures can't attack a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays for each of those creatures.

Based on this image, pick a "Team Gatewatch" walker

(Tamiyo, Jaya, Saheeli, Karn, Kiora, Teyo, Ral Zarek, and Vraska)

Or a walker introduced since WAR (just Oko and Lukka, the latter seems more likely sympathetic to the Gatewatch, but neither really do)

2x Basri's Acolyte 4x Cubwarden 2x Feline Sovereign 2x Keeper of Fables 4x Pridemalkin 2x Ajani, Strength of the Pride 1x Basri Ket 3x Glorious Anthem 4x Light of Promise

25(excluding the second Lurrus of the Dream-Den) out 64 cards in this deck have a converted mana cost of 3 or higher. Can you look at how Lurrus of the Dream-Den works again and decide wether you want to take him out or take out all the cards (+1x Lurrus of the Dream-Den) listed above?
