Texturepack on Legacy Goblins

bam69icp I would be glad to give some feedback on your Goblins list. I just played at SCG Syracuse but just had bad luck in two games and finished 1-3. Incase you’re curious, Earwig Squad is amazing against Lands.

I considered playing Rest in Peace in the sideboard instead of Surgical Extraction and having a Karakas in the main board for lands and reanimator matchups and helping just cast Containment Priest . However, needing the white mana isn’t usually an issue and RIP isn’t much better than Surgical in some match ups. For example, Delver is one of the most common match ups and I’d prefer Surgical over RIP. However, I haven’t been able to test it so it might be worth trying but not in a single game I played at the Open would RIP have been better.

Local meta requires that I have answers for etb effects. I chose Hushwing Gryff over Tocatli Honor Guard because it's instant speed so it can come in play only when needed. Added bonus of being evasive to help trigger Marisi. I think a hatebear heavy list like this is bound to have anti-synergy, see Containment Priest . You just need to be careful when you play them. If you have any suggestion, I would be happy to hear them.

Omnisurge, I agree that edicts and Containment Priest would be devastating, but I believe that I have enough removal in the deck to get rid of those. If you have any other suggestions for protecting the deck synergies please suggest them! Thanks!

1 tiny problem I see with this deck is the extreme weakness to edict effects and being absolutely destroyed by Containment Priest .

Shyachi33 on Andy's Eight-and-a-Half-Tails deck

hi, just watched the Legendary Creature Podcast and as someone that loves mono white AND Eight-and-a-Half Tails, i'd like to put some input in the deck.

first of all, i would cut ALL of the unsynergistic "lose-less" cards like: Dawn Elemental , Blinding Angel , Guardian of the Gateless , Palisade Giant , Platinum Angel , Selfless Squire , Ghostly Prison , Pariah , and Gideon of the Trials . none of these cards advance your game state, or put you closer to a win. If anything these cards only help you durdle around, hoping you can squeeze out a cheeky win. you already run the 3 circle of protection cards that will more or less synergistically do most of that already, and you can also add Idyllic Tutor as redundancy. i would probably replace the lose-less cards for more hatebears, like Aven Mindcensor , Angel of Jubilation , and Containment Priest . you're also running only 2 creatures with an etb effects, so cards like Torpor Orb and Hushwing Gryff can be very back breaking against other more creature based decks.

if you want commander damage to be your wincon, you should run bigger "bombs" or equipments/auras like Eldrazi Conscription and/or Blackblade Reforged on top of the strata scythe and umezawa's jitte.

snow-covered plains are cheap right now. so possibly investing in Extraplanar Lens (which unfortunately isn't cheap) might be something worth while for the deck.

Scuttlemutt is a cute ramp piece that can also paint creatures white. Cloudchaser Kestrel has an etb effect AND can paint things white also

i noticed you ran Steelshaper's Gift in the video, but it's not in your current list. need an update? if you don't already have it, Open the Armory is also a good way to look for those voltron pieces.

you only have 6 cards in your entire deck that can shuffle your making Sensei's Divining Top mostly a waste of time, at that point Crystal Ball would do you better as you can scry away "bad" cards at the top of your library, unlike SDT. if you add the 5 fetchlands, and more tutors then you can reconsider it.

Now onto more spicy tech. Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and All Is Dust both have great synergy with 8.5 since you can paint other people's lands and artifacts white.

adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in the deck can make temple of the false god and maze of ith tap for mana, BUT it also allows you to run some extra spicy cards like Karma and Royal Decree which, with any of the circle of protection cards, for 1 mana you can make it 1 sided.

Illumination a solid counterspell that people won't see coming, and you can stop gross cards like omniscience, and mind over matter.

Renounce the Guilds is also a great way to kill everyone's non-mono color deck commanders.

not sure of the timing of the filming, but Smothering Tithe and Generous Gift should both be auto includes in every white deck.

if you are able to get your hands on the fetchlands, Brought Back can be a really good include, along with Lotus Field .

Cavalier of Dawn is also a strong include.

end notes: try to keep your deck as low to the ground as possible, with a very low mana curve, you want to play cards but also keep as much mana open to do any of your 8.5 shinanigans. if you spend 6+ mana on a spell on your man phase, it really limits what you can and cant do on other people's turns, which you want to mainly be doing with a commander like 8.5 that screams CONTROL.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Not sure what kind of advice you're looking for because the deck is bad, but you know that already. Consider more hatebears? Increasing the pillowfort/opponent disruption strategies and decreasing everything else? Teeg is a good Commander for hatebears. You already have a few good ones Ouphe and Honor Guard, but consider more? Instead of playing a lot of lackluster creatures play hatebears that can both attack and disrupt your opponent. You can build a hatebear/pillowfort strategy on a budget especially since you already have Ghostly Prison

Cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lands:

Win Condition:

  • Luminarch Ascension : win condition when you have established a pillowfort and have your opponents disrupted. Repeatable source of 4/4 Angels that gets around many hatebears and disruptive enchantments/artifacts.
  • Sun Titan : can reanimate lots of different hatebears including Teeg, disruptive enchantments/artifacts or Wasteland/Strip Mine.

Hatebears:

Other:

If interested in these suggestions I offer more advice including potential cuts. Good luck with your deck.

gabetuf No problem! I'll go through your points individually

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid I'm not convinced about stormtamer, it doesn't really solve a lot of the problems of multihulking because you're going to need to fill hulk triggers already most of the time, it's really just way too situational, and I'm not into adding more dead cards into the deck to solve niche problems

I haven't added Quicken

As for the 2 mana countermagic, they're fine to slot in, but they don't add much to to the deck, as they don't protect early win attempts at all. If you're motivated to test them out though, the 4 primary options are Narset's Reversal , Dovin's Veto , Mana Drain , and Counterspell , I would go no further than those.

Autumn's Veil and Veil of Summer are currently being tested, Veil of Summer will almost 100% make it into the stock build, due to just how well it fits the strategy.

Scheming Symmetry is terrible, yes

Containment Priest is much too narrow, as if you don't have a sacrifice outlet, you lock yourself out of the game entirely, if you're looking for mirror-breakers, I'd look to Aven Mindcensor and Ashiok, Dream Render as alternative options that are much better as standalones.

I don’t know your meta but in a blind meta I think that you should play Sphere of Resistance , Static Orb Tangle Wire , Thorn of Amethyst , Trinisphere , Winter Orb and maybe Root Maze . You must add some restriction cards such as Containment Priest , Ethersworn Canonist and Spirit of the Labyrinth . In a graveyard environment you must play at least with Grafdigger's Cage and Rest in Peace . Autumn's Veil and Mirri's Guile are great additions too.
