Hushwing Gryff Discussion
2 months ago
Torpor Orb , Hushbringer , Hushwing Gryff , and Tocatli Honor Guard for protection. Plus, Torpor Orb will trigger metalcraft and is easy to tutor for. Hushbringer is probably the best creature version of it to run, but something can be said for Hushwing Gryff's flash ability. The honor guard is just your budget option.
I used to play Allies vs a Jor Kadeen deck and once I got Tuk-Tuk out I'd completely shut down their deck for the rest of the game through multiple ETB triggers destroying artifacts. The only thing they non-bo with in your deck is Hangarback Walker, since everything else I see is on-death or on-attack triggers.

In my Chulane, Teller of Tales EDH deck, I have Laboratory Maniac , Horizon Chimera , and Drogskol Reaver , which form an infinite combo that will allow me to win the game if it is successful. The majority of creatures in that deck have abilities that trigger when they enter the battlefield, but I have those three creatures in it, in the case that an opponent has a Torpor Orb , Hushbringer , or Hushwing Gryff , but I am wondering if I should replace them with further creatures that have EtB abilities.
What does everyone else say about this? Should I keep those cards in my Chulane EDH deck?

There’s enough similar creatures (depending on what format you’re in) to ensure consistency; Hushbringer , Tocatli Honor Guard and Hushwing Gryff . And of course, there’s Torpor Orb . Depending on what supporting spells you add, you could make a decent deck.

I would heartily NOT recommend Armageddon . You can check out the thread in the Forum on MLD (mass land destruction) from this week. It is NOT generally considered polite in casual circles, and generally frowned upon overall. Social Contract and LD Discussion
As to the Planeswalker question, looking at the options, I would front the extra money and buy Sorin Markov , as he fits well here. The others don't seem like they would add a lot of value. Overall, though, I usually don't run Planeswalkers. I have a few here and there that I like in certain decks, but overall, I find they aren't really worth it to me. They just put a target on my head, and unless they significantly advance my strategy, they're not worth the slot. Now I have a deck that does some Druid tribal, and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is awesome. I love Nissa Revane in an elf tribal deck. I like Teyo, the Shieldmage because he's a cheap option for personal hexproof, which can be very annoying. But overall, a Planeswalker is optional unless it really helps you.
Sunblast Angel and Blinding Light is a fun combo, but you need to be running multiple copies of each, and possibly some blink, to actually make it work. I had a deck that abused that, running Astral Slide , Rune of Protection: White et al, Auramancer , Momentary Blink , Cloudshift , Sunblast Angel , Subjugator Angel , Blinding Light , and Resolute Archangel . Yes, I am awful. It eventually became Hoofprints through the Galaxy, but that didn't last long, as all my friends hated playing against it. Basically, I just stopped them from attacking me by preventing damage from their sources until I could start dropping my big angels and swing for the kill. Still trying to come up with a deck for Hoofprints of the Stag that doesn't piss everyone off. Also, Sunblast Angel won't work if you're running Hushwing Gryff , FYI.

I'm thinking of removing the Sparring Regimen , Bold Plagiarist and Imperious Oligarch cards and adding Hushwing Gryff , Tocatli Honor Guard and Leonin Arbiter . This change would remove very conditional pieces to add answers and a little control to the deck.

Reconstruct history is very nice, although I personally feel that it should not have been able to return a planeswalker, as that makes it too powerful.
Potion of empowerment should have been a green/white hybrid card, because I feel that green alone should not have an effect such as that.
Why does blade historian grant double strike only to attacking creatures? Why is WotC making card that force players to attack, rather than both attack and defend?
Rip apart is not too bad, but the fact that it is merely a sorcery prevents it from being useful, so I shall keep Wear / Tear in my red/white decks, instead.
It seems that there shall be a cycle of campuses and pledgemages for each school, and, thus far, I am not impressed; Lorehold pledgemage could have been good if its ability increased its toughness in addition to its power. It is not yet known if all of the campuses shall have scry, but, if they do, 4 mana to scry one card is terrible, so I shall not be using them, in any of my decks.
Elite spellbinder is very nice, as it explores new design space for white while still feeling appropriate for that color, so I am very pleased by with it.
Venerable warsinger is awesome, so I do hope that I can put it into at least one of my decks.
Dueling coach is almost entirely worse than is Mikaeus, the Lunarch , so I will not even bother with it.
On returned pastcaller, why is the hybrid symbol between the two mono-colored symbols? Would it not make more sense for it to be after the colorless mana symbol?
Efreet flamepainter will be amazing for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am building, so I shall definitely get a copy of it.
I shall presume that each school shall have an uncommon legendary creature, who shall be students who are the main characters of the story, and Quintorius is acceptable, but too narrow, in my mind.
Velomachus Lorehold, the founder of the Lorehold school, is as impressive as I would expect an elder dragon to be, so, perhaps, I may put him into one of my decks, but his high mana cost is unappealing.
Given that nearly every card that was revealed today was red/white, is it now safe to presume that each day this week shall feature cards from one specific school?

Hofri Ghostforge: Boros undying in the command zone, kinda! You could immediately sac a creature after casting it to get it back with haste, trample, and an anthem boost. Is there perhaps a 2-card combo to be had involving an ETB tutor?
legendofa: not that odd since Lorehold basically has Golgari's mechanical guild identity in this set, with a twist
Uh speaking of which, what are people's impressions of the other college's mechanical identities? Withbloom seems quite Orzhov-esque with lifegain, and Silverquill seems to like its +1/+1 counters. Not really seeing what sets Quandrix and Prismari apart from their Ravnica counterparts yet tho

If you want to focus on etb then maybe you are right about trying yarok.
However abzan recursion can be a blast and you have a cool commander pair picked out.
I really like creatures that can be their own sac outlets so they can perpetualy generate value when you recur them, like with ramos or Phyrexian Reclamation .
Some of these creatures are Sakura-Tribe Elder , Caustic Caterpillar , Yavimaya Elder , Restoration Specialist , and Sidisi, Undead Vizier , for example.
Then your deck is less likely get hosed when your opponent plays Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff . Anyway, just something to think about.
