Carven Caryatid Discussion

subject19 on Balls to the walls

2 months ago

lagotripha Oh yeah, I totally forgot that Wall of Blossoms had been printed. That one should be included for sure, probably instead of Carven Caryatid and maybe also some number of Wall of Omens or Axebane Guardian . Vesperlark is good, but I am a bit concerned that it is not a wall. Overgrown Battlement is such a powerful ramp card, and I really want to minimize the number of creatures that are not walls to utilize it. Spellskite is included because it can counter some decks and works really well with Assault Formation , but Vesperlark only has one toughness. It does return a wall though, given that there is one in the graveyard.

Now that I have time

Filigree Familiar Seems off plan. I don't think it does what you think.

Same with Wirewood Savage

Cantrip/Tutor Creatures not in the deck


Recruiter of the Guard

Dusk Legion Zealot

Bonded Fetch

Champion of Wits

Phyrexian Rager

Rogue Refiner

Generous Stray

Whirlpool Rider

Coiling Oracle

Carven Caryatid

Shardless Agent

I particularly Recommend Recruiter since it is an instant win with aluren if you run like 1 more piece.

Wall of Omens and Carven Caryatid for more draw etbs

Sylvan Caryatid and Vine Trellis for more mama dorks

Junktroller provides utility with graveyard hate against opponents and allows you to return cards to your library

Bishop of Rebirth is Sun Titan without the etb and only for creatures but may be worth it

Eladamri's Call is a good creature tutor

Aura Shards is too good to not run in a creature heavy deck

Spidersilk Armor is an anthem to toughness and helps cover the weakness to flying

Slaughter the Strong and Austere Command provide additional one-sided board wipes

Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Unity , and Fellwar Stone are 2 cmc rocks to ramp into Arcades turn 3

Smothering Tithe is pretty pretty efficient in a multiplayer game

Suggestions are based off my own Arcades Deck: the Defenders

Vlasiax I like that call. The signets seemed a little clunky and inferior to the talisman counterparts already. Decided to swap in Carven Caryatid for some more thinning/draw. Also went with Drift of Phantasms because that card should really have been in the original build. The transmute ability can fetch just about any piece in the deck.

I agree, K4m4r0. I would be very unlikely to remove the 0/4 cantrips in my deck, they are both fantastic. I was simply referring to those as a minimum threshold which cards like Carven Caryatid and Jungle Barrier don't quite meet, hence are not included in the deck.

Both Warden of the First Tree and Figure of Destiny are removal magnets and since neither of them start as spirits, instant speed removal will likely hit them before you are able to sink mana into them. The established spirit tribal deck in modern would tend to be UW and have Mausoleum Wanderer and Rattlechains as early plays. If you wanted to splash green then Strangleroot Geist, Permeating Mass, Carven Caryatid and the already included Loam Dweller might be worth it. As for the 9 cards which cast 5+ mana, the odds are against you getting to cast them without some major ramp...

Promised Kannushi and Forked-Branch Garami might also be useful for the soulshift ability... Anyway good luck with your brew and I hope this comment is of some help.
