Ethereal Absolution Discussion

Meachman on Teysa Karlov the Aristocrat

Teysa, Orzhov Scion could be a nice fit in here with all the afterlife you have, and then with all your tokens, Ethereal Absolution has some potential. And then Elenda, the Dusk Rose is just made for this deck.

Abyssal Gatekeeper is the equivalent of a Merciless Executioner but for death triggers. Ancient Stone Idol makes two beefy tokens on death. Cavalier of Night is nice removal and double revival on its own death.

Yes. Ethereal Absolution's ability is a static ability and applies to all relevant creatures without having to use the stack or wait to resolve. Fabricate is a triggered ability and will therefore go on the stack and wait to resolve. This means that there will be a round of priority before it resolves. Before a player receives priority state-based actions will be checked and Angel of Invention will be put in the graveyard for having 0 or less toughness.

If I play Angel of Invention when my opponent has Ethereal Absolution out, does the Angel die for having 0 toughness before it can get the +1/+1 counters from it’s ETB?

I probably do need more lands, I just need things to take out.

Ethereal Absolution and The Haunt of Hightower fit very well with our gameplan. The idea of a midrange deck is to survive the early game without giving your opponent a big boardstate and use big creatures in the lategame. That's what we're doing here. We aren't building up, we're just surviving. Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer helps us with this in two ways: debuffing the opponent's creatures, and absorbing damage so we don't take it.

Our gameplan to beat flash is the same as any other: counter/wipe the opponent's creatures, and resolve our big ones. The only complication is the opponent's counterspells. Like I said before, it's not our best match-up, but we can survive it.

The counterspells are more of a backup plan, for when we don't have much of anything to play on those turns. Even forcing our opponent to play around the spells helps us.

Thought Collapse fits with the gameplan perfectly fine. It gets rid of the opponent's play-around, and gets more cards in their graveyard.

Silverdrake on I am Legion - A Boros Visitation Control Deck

Nice build, looks fun! Not sure I'd run the Harmonious Archon s though - I get that they're supposed to be a backup in case you can't find Divine Visitation , but if you already have a Divine Visitation on the field then playing it will nerf your tokens by 1 power and toughness. Normally I'd say that potential price is worth having a backup plan, but when you consider that you're running 4 Deafening Clarion , the problem becomes a fair bit bigger. Maybe consider splashing black for Ethereal Absolution instead, or if you want to stay in boros you could replace them with Unbreakable Formation .

Whether you decide to cut them or not, good luck and have fun!
