multimedia on Ranar precon upgrade

Hey, well done upgrading the precon on a budget. Blink is the way to go, good job adding the blink combos.

6 cards to consider cutting to get to 100 cards.

The spell side of these double faced cards is terrible, they aren't worth playing for the rare occasion that you might need to play them as a land. You don't need them for their land side, 36 lands and 13+ ramp sources is enough mana. Resolute Archangel, Supply Runners, Crovax, Ascendant Hero are the weakest cards here of each of these mana costs. 3.6 avg. CMC is high, cutting some of these lesser high mana cost cards can reduce that number to improve gameplay.

I have some suggestions for card upgrades to improve gameplay. Are you interested?

Good luck with your deck.

On one hand. This is what magic was meant to be. I havent played a few of these cards since i first put a deck together. Crusade. won't even show the image.. That is a discussion for another time...

Suggested additions

Loyal Warhound ramp in white

Skullclamp card draw

Sun Titan recursion

Abzan Falconer can give mass evasion

Some amount of board wipes my favorites atm are Tragic Arrogance Martial Coup Vanquish the Horde Ondu Inversion  Flip .

Cathars' Crusade it wins games. You may want to not use this so you focus on lifegain but this cards does work

Crested Sunmare lifegain payoff

Crovax, Ascendant Hero Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Soul of Eternity Celestial Mantle Axis of Mortalitykinda slow for my meta but might work for you.

Dawn of Hope card draw and can make tokens

Alseid of Life's Bounty protection w/ lifelink

Well of Lost Dreams card draw

Shattered Angel Angel of Vitality to keep with the angels if u want

Palace Jailer monarch is card draw also fun. and removal

Ajani's Pridemate lifegian payoff. its gets huge here because each attacking creature has its own trigger to grow the pridemate. i think 1 or 2 cards make essentially copies of this card. they might be worth looking for

Blind Obedience staxy and lifegain

Moon-Blessed Cleric you run a lot of enchantments your enchantress sub theme can be supported with this

Akroma's Will protection/ finisher

Noble Purpose unnoticed lifegain card that would be good here maybe

Lunarch Veteran  Flip Soul Warden Soul's Attendant Daxos, Blessed by the Sun Suture Priestlifegain dorks

Katilda, Dawnhart Martyr  Flip lifegain with enchantment payoff as well

now how do u win? atm you focus on going wide with weenies but have a focus on gaining life. Possible ideas Aetherflux Reservoir Archangel of Thune Felidar Sovereign Serra Avatar Starfield of Nyx Nykthos Paragon True Conviction

this is just some ranting. Its up to you how you want to build your deck! Other areas you should look at it your mana base (use tech lands you have almost all basics), ramp to your bigger stuff and card draw in general.

IHATENAMES thank you for your comment. I will test Expedition Map and Crovax, Ascendant Hero seems really great, too.

Dave-writer90: I absolutely love your suggestion. But before Overwhelming Splendor can be put inside the deck some talking with my playgroup needs to be done. :D

Cast this spell only during your opponent's draw step.

Target opponent reveals their hand. You choose a land card from it. That player exiles that card.

The mage pulled the stopper from his bottle... Torric was swept off his feet.

Colour-shift your favourite legendary, like Crovax the Cursed -> Crovax, Ascendant Hero.

this deck is fun! it has nice creature synergies and a solid mana curve.

I would consider getting a few more one drops in there. Figure of Destiny is a great card that only gets buffer as the game goes along. in terms of the late game, Crovax, Ascendant Hero is a personal favorite of mine. Righteousness is also great!

if you ever happen to take the plunge into buying some cards specifically for this deck, consider consolidating the creatures you only have one of into four of the best of em. it'll make your deck run smoother and take some of the guesswork out of how a given game goes.

Jabberjaw46 thank you for this awesome suggestion, but I got one question: if I return Crovax, Ascendant Hero during the upkeep I will only be able to let him enter the battlefield during the first main phase resulting in giving away my priorty for instants of opponents and therefore need to speend mana which I might not have (enough) to resolve this combo? Or am I missunderstanding your advice? Thanks.

hehe you should run Axis of Mortality, it combos with Crovax, Ascendant Hero. Pay 2 life to return to hand while holding priority, then activate again paying 2 life. Continue until you're at 1 or 2 life then switch life totals.

I know it isnt part of your main strategy but it can be a fun backup win con.
