faustodemambo on The Ur-Dragon, quest for 100%

Sorry for the late response, I don't have a lot of time on my hands anymore sadly

1 Embercleave its player removal with my commander out. I don't have to flash it out as I can put it on the battlefield with The Ur-Dragon's ability so its harder to counter. If I see that people are out of mana I can use the flash part but its not needed all the time

2 I don't think Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is good enough as I'm not playing cards that can tutor it. As soon as all 5 colours are printed I'm changing my rampcards to be able to tutor lands

3 Steely Resolve has worked great for me as haste is quite important and it also protects some of my more important cards

4 Wasitora, Nekoru Queen was a card that I wanted to cut for some time but I didn't know what I could replace it with. For now I have added Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient but he might get cut for Moonveil Regent

5 Conqueror's Flail will make this list for Grand Abolisher, I just want to get grand abolisher out vs my friends Kozilek, the Great Distortion deck once. As soon as that happend I will change em

6 Dragon's Hoard is 1 mana to much for me. I have tried to keep all my ramp artifacts at 0-2 mana. The Great Henge doesn't follow that rule but that card can be 2 mana and is just to good not to have

I agree with Gavriel, except for one thing. The white deck could run a couple of Call to Glory to untap all creatures (also gives pseudo-vigilance and the element of surprise). The curve on the white deck is way too high, and there are too many counterspells in the blue deck. Repeatable token generation is definitely the way to go. Consider things like Populate, Growing Ranks, Sundering Growth. To interact with big threats from the blue deck, Oblivion Ring definitely could find a place. To give white a "sleep" effect, I like Blinding Light. And the Whelming Waves do seem especially cruel against the white deck. If you keep them in, you also need to give white a nasty edge to play. Celestial Dawn would wreck the blue deck entirely. You could also include things like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Conqueror's Flail, Grand Abolisher or Silence to give white a competitive edge against all the counterspells (and they're all pretty expensive, because they are so effective).

Rhys the Redeemed would be an awesome include for the white deck. You might also look for things that make bigger scarier tokens, like 4/4 angels Moonsilver Spear or Seraphic Greatsword. Or low to the ground anthems like Honor of the Pure. Plus a little card draw in there somehow. Not white's strong suit, but something like Mentor of the Meek might work.

lagotripha Wow, thanks for your great input on this list! I think clerics as one of the oldest tribes offer you a huge pool of great cards to play. I'm not too much into competitive play though, so I lack the overview of the decks beeing played. In my playgroup I would get shunned for playing cards like Grand Abolisher. So I leave this task to somebody out there more fit for this job than me :)

Archetype of Courage , Archetype of Finality , and the others but those 2 in particular. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Grand Abolisher , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , and Palisade Giant . Anything that goads or has indestructible is worth a look too.

Basically, Isochron Scepter lets you choose a spell, and then cast that spell every turn. If the spell you choose is Silence , then you can cast Silence every time your opponent starts their turn. This prevents them from ever casting a spell, so they're stuck with whatever they already have out. Does that make sense?

Since you don't own Grand Abolisher , take it out. That frees up about $30 to spread around and improve your other cards. You could get an extra copy of Narset Transcendent and two more Path to Exile s and still have $8-10 left over if you drop Grand Abolisher , Citadel Siege , and one of the Valorous Stance s. It's almost always better to have multiple copies of your best cards, to make it more likely you draw them.

Do you own these cards already, or are you trying to buy them? If you don't already own it, think about switching out Grand Abolisher , since that single card is 20% of your budget. If you already own it, then is that $150 what you want to spend, or what you want the deck to be worth?
