Evra, Halcyon Witness

Legendary Creature — Avatar


: Exchange your life total with Evra, Halcyon Witness's power.

Here's some background on how my mind works: I grew up playing Warhammer (Middle Earth SBG, specifically) and continue to play it nearly 2 decades later. One idea I've always been drawn to is: making close-combat armies out of factions that primarily excel at shooting, and making ranged armies out of factions that primarily want to swarm and get in combat.

Why do I give you this background? Because I learned of Evra, Halcyon Witness and her effect is, in some ways, basically a restricted version of Hatred. The first time you use it, if you have your starting life total, that effect is: pay 36 life, Evra gets +36/+0. If that effect doesn't scream mono-black to you, well it does to me.

That same part of my brain that gets excited about those Warhammer armies got really excited about building a mono-white deck that plays like a mono-black deck. Life is a resource, your creatures are a resource, get Evra out at all costs and swing. Easier said than done, white doesn't have many cards that treat your life like a resource, but it's added to the list of decks I'm working on. That then gets me thinking about mono-blue aggro, etc etc.

So the discussion I'm looking to start here is, what are some ways that you've seen colour tropes be bucked?

Sorry, I keep thinking of things. One more you might consider that won't break the budget it Evra, Halcyon Witness. If your life total is decently high, you can one-shot someone by sacrificing her to Brion. Then you get to gain the life back. Fun to pull off; just watch out for tricks.

Whoops! My bad!

Other cards like Reverse The Sands and Soul Conduit include Axis of Mortality and Evra, Halcyon Witness.

Other cards you may want to consider are Darien, King of Kjeldor and Toralf, God of Fury.

Spells that pay life to do damage are tricky since yer not taking any damage. It can work though if your timing is right.

Plane chosen at random = EQUILOR


One of the oldest planes, in one of the farthest reaches of the Multiverse, Equilor is unknown to all but the most tenacious planeswalkers. Once visited by the planeswalker Urza on his journey to find allies against the Phyrexian scourge, Equilor can be described as nearing the end of its natural entropy. The plane has flattened mountains and risen seas, and the beings who live on it are self-described as being beyond any desire for greatness or any effect of boredom. The plane itself is covered in large swaths by an endless mist known as The Eon Fog, and has some areas of living flesh mountains known as Bloodhill Bastions.

GODS & AVATARS None known


The only card previewed here on this plane is a good one.

Soul of Eternity

I feel like this makes me a cross between two cards. And they have to be legendary because cmdr right? I am Barrin, Master Wizard and Evra, Halcyon Witness

Scuttling Doom Engine was in the original iteration of this deck. It was definitely serviceable, and I'd recommend it for a budget build, but if it can be afforded, there's better stuff out there.

Evra, Halcyon Witness is AWFUL against removal and if people really think about it, it's a non-bo.All the card that rely on having a high life total are SCREWED if you use Evra: Serra Avatar, Soul of Eternity, Aetherflux Reservoir, etc. So while it looks good on first glance, it's bad.

I like the idea and the deck! I wonder if you like Scuttling Doom Engine or Evra, Halcyon Witness for a higher curve-- I'd love to life swap with Evra and gain it right back while killing someone.
