If you want cards to specifically defeat your friend's deck, maybe Containment Priest , Hallowed Moonlight , and Drannith Magistrate will help you out.

For anti-counterspells, discard effects work well. Since I'm already recommending narrow cards, also take a look at "can't be countered" cards, which are usually in or .

How competitive do you want this deck to be, and how many different decks do you expect to use it against?

take Arcane Artisan add in Containment Priest so you can exile your opponents creatures when you blink/flicker theirs.

Don't know how well it'll hold up in the metagame - modern hasn't been my jam for a while, but Pyre of Heroes ?

Lets you grab thalia, run stuff like Charming Prince or Containment Priest and Drannith Magistrate as 1-ofs and free up sideboard slots?

smilodex on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

1 month ago

This list is compiled from a competitive point of view and in the upper tiers we compare the cEDH variants of the respective decks and here Yuriko often serves as a strong value engine (like Edric or Tymna for example). In contrast to Thrasios, Kenrith or Najeela, Yuriko isn't a direct wincon with which you can win in the first two rounds. Yuriko is simply very strong by nature, because you don't really have to pay command tax at all, which makes it difficult to interact with her. She also deals damage to every opponent AND you still draw many cards. BUT on the other side you can shut Yuriko out of the game if somebody get a Cursed Totem , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Pithing Needle / Phyrexian Revoker or a Containment Priest on the board. If that happens, all of a sudden the deck is stuck with a lot of expensive spells and pretty useless ninjas.

DemMeowsephs on Queen of Braves - Sigarda Voltron

Hey there! I am also a fellow Voltroner as seen in some of my decks, and I may just have some card tips that work out for your advantage! There are two ways that I can see this functioning most likely better, and both of them involve screwing with your opponent long enough to ensure your gameplan ends properly. Just hoping you don't die usually doesn't work, especially in a 4 player commander game. A tactic that works in one of my decks, involves staxing out the opponent- obviously this isn't a tax deck, but by including around 10 or so stax pieces, you can really slow your opponent down a lot, and since you are in white you have access to SOOO many stax cards! Here are a few you may like. Keep in mind, some of the ones below may a bit extreme to you- I'm just sort of listing the most common ones. If you want to find more of these, I recommend going to EDHREC's tax theme.

Or, instead of slowing down your opponent, you can try to protect yourself more, allowing you to stall until you can swing with a crazy big Sigarda. This protection can range from damage, attacks, or anything really. Here are some that I like. You can see a bunch more under the EDHREC Pillowfort Theme.

Basically, I think you need some way of ensuring you have time to put Sigarda out, rather than chancing it upon luck. Before I take leave, you also may want to just consider a ton of more removal spells like Path to Exile , Beast Within , Generous Gift , and other famous ones! Now I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, +1 from me, and have a great day! Happy tapping.

Also, here are some extra cards you might like - Eladamri's Call - Sylvan Library - Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Birds of Paradise - Ilysian Caryatid - Mother of Runes / Giver of Runes - Hunter's Insight

NobleRooster on Should Tybalt's Trickery be Banned …

2 months ago

I just lost to it in upper plat. G1 I didn't stand a chance, but I brought in Drannith Magistrate and Containment Priest then mulled to find them. T2 Magistrate made them scoop, but then game 3 they obviously went first again -- got planar bridge off first trickery, I flashed in Priest on trigger, they had another trickery and countered it... My bad for waiting until upkeep. Bridge into Big Snake sealed the deal.

I feel like most games that they go first, you just gotta pray they whiff, but they have a LOT of good hits. I just hope that counters and hand disruption hate it out of the format, but I'm pretty bummed about the loss yet so I might just be bitter

I'd be curious to see how this deck plays out, but at a glance there seems to be a few things that could backfire on you. Those Hushbringer would stop your Skyclave Apparition , Containment Priest would ruin the 3rd chapter of Elspeth Conquers Death , Vryn Wingmare makes your own spells more expensive... It would be a shame if you played it as a blocker against an aggressive deck to then not be able to cast a wipe the board on time.

It's also pretty gutsy of you to only run 19 lands. A prison deck certainly doesn't want to fall behind if it hopes to keep the opponent in check as the game progresses. The Birth of Meletis is supposed to give you an edge, but with so few lands it will often be what you HAVE to play just to hit your land drops instead of whatever else you'd rather do.

Anyway, good luck! Cheers!
