Elspeth Tirel Discussion

I made this deck a while ago, it's nether competitive nor maybe even good idk. It theme is have all indestructible creatures than using non-bounce, non-exile, non -1/-1 and non-sacrifice board wipes to be the only one left on the field with creatures. Worldslayer was the inspiration for this deck since i never see it used was a way to make useable somehow and than why not add more Nukes? I could use some tinkering i think any ideas to make it for fun?
Link Board state getting you down? Try Nukes! not a great name but ehh
Boards wipes atm
Starstorm, Myojin of Cleansing Fire, Novablast Wurm, Blasphemous Act, Duneblast, End Hostilities, Kirtar's Wrath, Martial Coup, Star of Extinction, Sublime Exhalation, Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Worldslayer and my commander Child of Alara

Alright, it’s official:
Still debating sliding Winding Canyons and/or Vedalken Orrery back in. I think i’m using both of mine, so i’d need to drop some cash on another... not that having another reserved list card laying around is a terrible thing.
I do love the idea of bringing back more instant speed plays - the deck can already win instant speed with the right set up - but boy is it getting hard to find cuts.

Ahhh, hello again Omniscience_is_life. I feel like you’ve seen me through most of the big changes in this deck and I am always happy to hear your input.
Monologue Tax has honestly done it’s job really well. It ramps me or keeps other players pace slower and I can benefit a lot from both. I think it’s gonna stick around for now.
My initial thought on cutting Elspeth Tirel is “BLASPHEMY!!” and I wanted to counter with cutting Skyclave Apparition instead, But when I think about it more, you make a valid point. Skyclave is more versatile removal, and i’ve cut so much artifact/enchantment removal in recent iterations, I really do need it. Between Elspeth and Ajani, Strength of the Pride she is definitely the weaker of the two. I will try cutting her. I think 3 board wipes is still sufficient.
As for flash/instant speed bounce, i might just drop a plains and slot Winding Canyons back in. Canyons, Emergence Zone , and the redundancy of fetching them with Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map should be plenty. Although I do still have a Vedalken Orrery laying around from Oketra’s early days.

How's Monologue Tax working for you? Is ramp more important than draw here?
I struggle to find weak links, it may be at the point where you need to cut good cards to add great cards...
Also--I can't help but notice that you have 4 boardwipes, and that Elspeth Tirel is the last one that's even semi-symmetrical. Ofc, she does a whole lot of other things, but I wonder how you'd feel about replacing her with Solitude : it works well with your instant-speed bounce creatures, it triggers your Commander , Archangel of Thune , and many others, and it gives you more targeted removal options. Just a thought :)

I also built a Rhys deck (on a budget though) na na na na, hey hey, goodbye(overwhelming tokens) here's a little bit of what I have learned playing it
Biowaste Blob can get big fast with your token doubling
Dauntless Escort has saved me many a time from a board wipe
I also like using Glare of Subdual to tap down my opponent's creatures with my tokens
Citywide Bust can harm your opponents while leaving you practically untouched
Good Luck in your war

Omniscience_is_life maybe. Angelic Chorus gets insane though. 1 creature cast ends up making 10+ life with oketra and the soul sisters. Running out of spots of things that feel like they can be dropped. Maybe a board wipe? I have 5, but each lends it’s own benefit outside of wiping the board.
Winds of Abandon is one sided
Fumigate gains me tons of life
Dusk recurs my most needed creatures afterwards
Not sure which is weakest....

I can think of a way to do it with this spell X=5, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, no floating mana. Also a way with this spell X=4, no cards in hand, two mana sources one that produces white on board, and no floating mana; or X=3, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, and floating.
All scenarios are abusing PW that tutor to search for other cards that do the actual kill. Either infinite mana into Walking Ballista ( Elspeth Tirel , Ajani, the Greathearted , Xenagos, the Reveler , Garruk Relentless Flip, Tezzeret the Seeker ) or the Copy Cat combo ( Garruk Relentless Flip, Elspeth Tirel , Saheeli Rai , and either the 4 mana or the 2 sources and Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).
