Imperious Perfect Discussion

StoryArcher on Damned Elves!

mindset905,

Thank you for taking the time to come over and check out the deck - I really do appreciate your comments. Board-wipes are a pretty common threat for Elves - this one is just the rare version that is actually capable of doing it back. If I wanted a way to defend against that, wouldn't Heroic Intervention serve better than trying to mix in a whole new color?

I never really post serious sideboards on this site, the meta varies too wildly from one place to another, BUT having said that, apart from the ever brutal Blood Moon, I specifically selected elf options as a toolbox. Sure, they might technically be inferior to many of the sideboard options that you mentioned, but on the flip side, a sideboard card you never see is worthless. By selecting elves that I can hit with off of Collected Company, Realmwalker AND tutor up with Elvish Harbinger, I'm a lot more likely to actually get the inferior option on the board than any of your more popular suggestions. Some others that I've kicked around are Essence Warden, Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Lys Alana Scarblade, Imperious Perfect and Fauna Shaman.

I know that Nettle Sentinel is a popular choice for elf decks and can be very effective, but it just doesn't work for me. If I were to work something in, it would more likely be Quirion Ranger.

Again, thanks for your comments.

I would replace Sylvan Anthem and Imperious Perfect with a playset of Elvish Clancaller. Imperious Perfect is too slow and Sylvan Anthem isn't a creature (can't be grabbed by Collected Company, doesn't help Elvish Archdruid, etc.). Clancaller is also a mana-sink that fetches copies of itself, which is great.

Yeah i’d say playing the full playset of Collected Company could be a good move. Though I do see a lot of elf decks running Chord of Calling because being able to fetch specific elves is often very useful for quick wins.

To address your specific card questions:

  • Garruk Wildspeaker is still slow and assuming you’ll be able to ult him without issues isn’t a foolproof plan. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is just a much more reliable and powerful card, so we’re better-off searching that up, than messing around with with Garruk.

  • Lys Alana Huntmaster does make a lot of tokens, but doesn’t interact well at all with the Collected Company you’re running. Aside from that, the card being 4cmc makes it awkward to get out early - and in general Elvish Warmaster is just a much stronger card in that it comes out early, still makes tokens, and provides a wincon.

  • Imperious Perfect doesn’t offer much because it’s “just” a lord. Other elf lords provide other things, namely mana or forestwalk (Elvish Champion, Elvish Archdruid), or some form of card advantage (Elvish Clancaller), but this thing just provides really slow token production. Elves are hyper aggressive so if they’re tapping they want it to be for an attack, or a meaningful advantage.

I think the current weak spots are

  • both the planeswalkers should be the first to go, imo. Neither help advance your plan in any meaningful way. Nissa is only really gaining you life (you’re an aggro deck, so who cares), and Garruk just provides inadequate ramp & 3/3s (by the tine you cast him, you should already have tons of mana, and the 3/3s aren’t useful)

  • Elvish Promenade and Harmonize aren’t hugely great either, imo. Good elves are preferable to tokens, and Harmonize is kinda clunky.

  • Lys Alana Huntmaster & Imperious Perfect are both slow and not hugely impactful, imo. Also the first one gets missed by Collected Company so that doesn’t help.

  • Essence Warden - you’re an aggro deck life doesn’t matter

  • Copperhorn Scout doesn’t really help all that much

Imperious Perfect has a sweet tap ability. But I think you mean just from being tapped and untapped? If so, the inspire mechanic is entirely based off of being untapped. There aren’t a ton of good ones, but one will draw a card.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is a removal spell.

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.
