Updated. Not sure for the better, but for sure plays into the win conditions.

Alright, this is very much taking shape. What I would like feedback on, are the follwing ideas

1: Add Argivian Find as an extra life for Anointed Procession. What to cut? Not sure it's worth it.

2: Is it worth it to add Crucible of Worlds so I can prune/fix with fetchlands and Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds? What to cut for that one?

3: This probably takes the deck full competitive, and would push for less win conditions and more counter spells, and other cuts. The anthems provide some protection early game.

I'm leaning towards Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Rings of Brighthearth, Phyrexian Altar, and Pitiless Plunderer?

Advice please? Does this go full retard?

TheBearKat on Ultimate Basri Theme Deck

This looks great! Love the suggested Glorious Anthem and Gideon Blackblade. I would say Castle Ardenvale would fit right in aswell, Basri is a planeswalker after all. Angelic Gift, Defiant Strike, and Mindless Automaton all seem better to me than Oblation but I just have a thing against sacking my own things. I have a 60 card I'm looking to turn into an oathbreaker deck, so this helps a ton! Thanks!

Gidgetimer on ukkima, stalking shadow mirror mockery …

Ana Sanctuary is on upkeep to one creature, you may be thinking of a different card.

If you have an anthem effect (Glorious Anthem or the like) the copy Ukkima, Stalking Shadow will be a 3/3 when it dies and will deal 3 damage from its trigger. Anthems have static abilities that apply at all times. There is never a time that a permanent is on the battlefield that it is not being affected by static abilities.

Welcome to the club, shellsh0ckn0w!

As wallisface and Caerwyn have mentioned, knowing how much money you're willing to spend and if you're aiming for a certain format are important. I'm also going to ask if there are any colors you want to use or avoid.

Looking at creatures with Evoke, there are seven with a toughness 4 or greater, and just two have an Evoke cost under 4 mana. If you include Evoke cards with a toughness of 3, there are many more useful options, but you're going to need an additional Glorious Anthem, +1/+1 counters, or similar effects to bring their toughness up to 4.

Cheap, high toughness creatures like Wall of Omens and Aegis Turtle can provide a strong defense as you build to a different win condition, or you can turn their toughness into offense with cards like Assault Formation and High Alert.

Another potential angle is to build around Righteous Valkyrie, Bishop of Wings, and Kor Celebrant, using high-toughness Angels and Clerics to build an army.

The card is definitely slow, probably too slow for any tournament-level Constructed format, but a solid control shell will mitigate that, and it can be sped up a little with sacrifice effects. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Severed Strands, Korozda Guildmage (which is a pet card of mine), and other effects that give resources based on a creature toughness can help, as well as more general sacrifice effects like Village Rites.

Above all, have fun!

Icbrgr on Serra's Descendants, competitive Angel Tribal

I'm a sucker for tribal decks in general and angels are just awesome.

A neat tech option could be Chancellor of the Annex to slow down some hyper aggressive strategies... besides that I feel like Serra the Benevolent needs to be here in some capacity.... mana for a Serra Angel that leaves a planswalker behind to then Glorious Anthem if she survives seems strong in angel tribal... at least the flavor is hard to resist lol (but I have my own personal bias I just love Serra).

@9-lives thank you for the kind words!

This deck is a passion project to be focused on Serra the Benevolent and thats why I'm running her at 3 copies. I know she isn't competitive but she is the focal point of the deck and the general brewing inspiration for my card choices.

playing a Serra Angel for mana that leaves a planswalker behind to Glorious Anthem with if she survives is very meh for Modern but im doing my best to have it work; even the Worship emblem isn't exactly an automatic win but sometimes it works and feels extremely satisfying.

I really wanted to have more burn spells in this list initially and ran a full playset of Lightning Helix in the mainboard but recently abandoned it altogether... as you were saying if I dropped the planswalkers and was more aggressive helix would come back; but with my decks gameplan I feel like I needed to have more for sideboard hate/removal because my LGS plays pretty powerful decks and its hard for a deck like mine to compete... currently is in here for Lightning Bolt for being a mainboard clock or essential removal for Goblin and aggro/prowess and a means to meaningfully interact with some opponents mana bases with Alpine Moon.

KBK7101 on Elves- Lathril.

Anthems are cards that generally give your creatures a buff a some sort. Glorious Anthem, Intangible Virtue, Sylvan Anthem. Stuff like that.

On a similar note, the term lords generally refers to a creature that gives the same effect. Elvish Clancaller, Lord of Atlantis, Leaf-Crowned Visionary, Death Baron etc.

A really good card for Lathril decks is Chatterfang, Squirrel General. Chatterfang essentially doubles token generation and could essentially be a budget version of Parallel Lives when it comes down to it. Lathril is a really cool commander (who comes from one of my favorite sets/planes!) and has the potential to be built in a lot of different ways and power levels. Definitely a good pick!
