Felidar Retreat Discussion

GrimlockVIII on GW Cats Feline Furrocity

Huh, only 19 creatures? I mean, I know the pool is a bit limited, but I think something like Felidar Retreat might be useful for making more cats when you potentially run out of creatures to play.

Also Realmwalker and Faceless Haven (since you're using snow lands) might be useful shapeshifters that count as cats.

Oh wait yo you gotta include Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist dude helps your cats get in for more damage while potentially preventing your opponents from swinging back in any meaningful way.

Well, Selesnya Sanctuary might bounce a land, but it taps for 2, so next turn you not only have less lands out, you have the same mana (and have some fixing), and you definitely have another land in hand if you need to play a big drop later. If you use Karoo lands, you lose the land, but you aren't down any mana. As for Ohran, I was thinking a singleton as a finisher, as it can both draw lots of cards and clear out blockers, both things you probably want. I'm trying to think of some good card draw options that fit in here, white has nothing I can think of that fits, and green tends to need a big creature out, or lots of creatures.

Rebuff vs Mana Tithe is a decent question, but I think the two serve different purposes. Mana Tithe mostly hits efficient plays, and removal plays tend to be cheap and leave mana to pay it. Mana Tithe becomes dead quickly most games though, while Rebuff can stay relevant.

I can explain some of what Knight of the Reliquary can do for you. It excels in a deck that runs lands that are high value, up to Gaea's Cradle type stuff, but there are many great lands out there that can take over the game that aren't $1k. It can easily fix you with a The World Tree , and all the while it keeps growing. You might also want some landfall payoffs like Felidar Retreat or Retreat to Kazandu , there are tons out there. If you fetch out a Sanctuary, note it will still bounce a land, and thus Reliquary can set up Knight of the White Orchid to fetch a land for you and actually get you ahead on mana, and that fetched Plains can then be sacrificed for a better land later. If you can bounce, flicker or otherwise repeat the Knight, you might actually end up pretty far ahead, as long as you expect your opponents to hit their land drops. You can also find lands that make creatures with Reliquary, or go big with Dark Depths as a finisher, it's an extremely versatile card, and has big synergies with a ton of stuff like Crucible of Worlds to generate big mana enabling quick wins. Even without leaning too hard into it's traditional uses, just using it as a Knight it seems like a good card, and I feel like you need more creatures in here anyways.

If you keep Knight of the White Orchid I would remove the ramp spells for Reliquaries, I think you have enough lands to hit 3 mana safely.

Hope some of this was helpful!

Looks like an interesting deck.

It's very rare to see Scale the Heights getting any play, but if you really like it then you should more than just 23 lands, especially if you run Felidar Retreat as well. Having 4 Fabled Passage is pretty much a must to get the most out of your Felidar Retreat too. If you're not sure what to cut, I would recommend running only 2 Snakeskin Veil instead. It's not a bad card, but it's usually side-board material because unless you have the perfect opportunity to use it, it's very underwhelming. You never want 2 or 3 of those sitting in your hand taxing your mana while you wait for a good time to use them either.

If you think you might run out of spells too quickly with more lands, you could also consider adding some Castle Locthwain to your mana base. Mixing in some Mazemind Tome is usually a good idea too.

Cheers~

Hey BransBranflakes, I like the list! Thanks for the inspiration.

I play Tayam in the 98 with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan at the helm. But Tayam is so synergistic in there that i want to put him into the spotlight with his own deck.

But the further i read on Tayam, the more bland he becomes with the same infinite combos between Ashnod's Altar and various creatures you noted (and Weaponcraft Enthusiast ). What is your experience on the diversity of Tayam and people who play against it? Is it the same song and dance with this commander every game, or can you win on different matters?

The ability got me with so many ideas.. I mean its nothing like Karador! First I was thinking of going tokens with a sacrifice subtheme. I could use Teysa, Orzhov Scion that can also create white tokens from the black tokens that e.g. Dreadhorde Invasion or Ophiomancer create. It will be an endless loop!.. Or landfall, as Tayam can make some cool land recurring triggers using Evolution Sage , Felidar Retreat and many more landfall critters. He also makes a cool Abzan coloured Enchantress (recurring Animate Dead or Pernicious Deed while drawing cards from Setessan Champion and enchantresses alike and even a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons subtheme sounds good, where Ammit Eternal , Devoted Druid and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician are great inclusions.

Already made some changesDemMeowsephs

  1. Some Creatures changes I end up adding: Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Luminarch Aspirant . Also changed Citadel Siege for Felidar Retreat as it can give me tokens to sac and more counters not just 2

  2. Cut Mind's Eye , Black Sun's Zenith , Blot Out the Sky , Infernal Offering , Secret Rendezvous and Debtors' Knell

  3. More added: Sword of Truth and Justice , Sign in Blood , Beacon of Unrest , Command the Dreadhorde , Ambition's Cost and Victimize

  4. Doubts with: Custodi Soulbinders as it can give me a lot of tokens but I have to be set up already with my tokens or wait for oponents to set up their own table. I think I can swap it for something more usefull. Scheming Symmetry maybe I can get Profane Tutor until I have a more solid tutor.

Maybe quit some lands for other cards as: Phyrexian Altar The Ozolith Coat of Arms

Felidar Retreat could be a nice addition in here

Great list! I always liked the idea of splashing black for a landfall deck as Ob Nixilis is qutie fun. I agree largely with zapyourtumor regarding limiting finishers/higher cmc creatures to opt for more aggro low cmc creatures though. You can check out my landfall deck, i just like selesnya [landfall] for any inspiration. I was motivated by the power of Knight of the Reliquary and Felidar Retreat

You may want to consider adding a Felidar Retreat into this deck! It's very bling! Careful that magpies do not try to steal it XD
