IlGuale on Persist combo: in which colours ...

1 day ago

Tl;dr: i'd like to play a deck with a persist combo to trigger etb and ltb effects (or similar), but i don't know which is better between Abzan, Jund or WRGB.

Long version to contextualize: my first legendary creature ever was Teneb, the Harvester and i wanted to build something in its colours. Looking for something Abzan does better than others i found out that persist combo has a lot of pieces to work with in that wedge: green and white have a lot of persisting creature, some sacrifice outlet, some tutor and a lot of ways to give +1/+1 counter to creature entering the battlefield; black offers tutors, sacrifice outlets and ETB/LTB triggers. The problem is that abzan doesn't have exactly the best commanders ever. Teneb himself is more of a value oriented beefcake, Karador and Ghave are better in this role, but not exceptional and i'm not familiar with partners.

Jund, on the other side, trades all the nice counter sinergies of white ( Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Juniper Order Ranger , Good-Fortune Unicorn , Vizier of Remedies ) plus Corpse Knight and Cruel Celebrant , for the big bad Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and its cousin Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and everything they bring along such as Grumgully, the Generous and Murderous Redcap .

There's also the option of going WRBG, but it may be too greedy.

Has anyone experience with this kind of deck? If yes, what do you play? If not, what would you like to play? Thanks for your time.

I don’t play standard, but your deck seems too heavy on creatures and lacking in non-creature spells such as spot-removal.

Claim the Firstborn seems really good as you can remove a blocker for cheap and have it deal damage. If you’re up against a deck with not a lot of creatures you can still use it to give your own creature haste or to untap it as a blocker after combat.

Your deck should also be running Corpse Knight as it would be ridiculously strong with Worthy Knight . Skyknight Vanguard would also help a lot in pushing this synergy as well. You could then abuse cards like Heartfire and Spark Harvest which are tremendously strong if you can flood the field. Do keep in mind those two spells work amazing with Claim the Firstborn as you can sac your own opponent’s stuff instead.

MurderousPanda on Orzhov and a Warboss

If you played more multi color cards you could make good use of Hero of Precinct One which combos really well with Corpse Knight and with Cruel Celebrant . It would really only be useful if you spread your colors more which is more difficult because of the Ixalan and Dominaria Lands rotating out but just some food for thought.

So, I added The corpse knights, and I really like that Icon of Ancestry . A new card spoiler dropped called "Worthy Knight" which seems pretty good too, especially for the Corpse Knight triggers. I added 2 Cavalier of Night s as well, to make room for them, I moved the removal/burn spells to the sideboard (I am hoping I won't need them, since I am aiming for an early win), and removed Knights' Charge and Inspiring Veteran . I am not sure how I feel about losing Inspiring Veteran , but it seemed like the weakest link?

+1 for Corpse Knight . His synergy with Skynight Vanguard is fun even if they can block your 1/1 Soldier every turn.

Icon of Ancestry is what you might need for an anthem.

And definately a finisher is needed. There will surely be some in the set, but until that mentioned Cavalier of Night seems viable. Only constraint is its devotion to which might be tricky for 3-colored aggro deck...

There are a lot of unnecessary 2-3 off - I would consolidate your best cards as a 4-of! That means 4 Skynight Vanguard , 4 Midnight Reaper and 4 Wintermoor Commander . I think to make room for these you can safely remove Knights' Charge (a bit of a win-more card) and Syr Konrad, the Grim .

Also, have you considered Corpse Knight ?
