Inquisition of Kozilek Discussion

Boza on Sultai RecSurPod - Feb. 6th, 2020

I was looking for a deck that had Pod in it, looked at the points spread I would want and found this gem with the exact points spread that I wanted.

I have made some changes, visible in RecSurPod, chiefly removing the one-mana discards, adding an important new addition in Fiend Artisan which is yet another pod effect and another very good creature in Soulherder.

I am throughly confused by the inclusion of Chainweb Aracnir. What role does it serve? a more useful creature like Scavenging Ooze or additional searcher like Recruiter of the Guard would be more useful. Current changes I have made:

i like playing double playset of Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize in this kind of deck.

I agree with hungry000. I’ve played token decks before. They are midrange. The use early cheap removal to stall out and kill with efficient, flying damage machines. Path to Exile, Thoughtseize, and the like. Valuable engines like Bitterblossom and any cheap planeswalkers that makes tokens are great. Speaking of one drops, Legion's Landing  Flip is great. It’s tokens enough ramp.

But those can be expensive. Some more budget alternatives are Battle Screech, Secure the Wastes, Inquisition of Kozilek and Fatal Push. Cabal Therapist is good if you like the sacrifice synergies.

Naksu, your deck is very similar, if not the same, to what I was trying to do and I got a lot of hints out of it. I'm probably going to run one Westvale Abbey  Flip and Ghost Quarter which are also good for the theme (really important to me). I upvoted it btw. Since you have surely more experience with this kind of deck, I've got a couple of questions:

do you think Doomed Traveler is worth it? I find that it's very easy to play around him. Probably it's better to change it for a 1-cost removal like Path to Exile or Inquisition of Kozilek/Thoughtseize rather than another 1-cost spirit creature. The only one I like is Kami of False Hope cause it can proc Promise of Bunrei at any time.

What do you think of Midnight Haunting and Kaya's Guile? The first could be good to build an heavy Devouring Greed and the second is really versatile.

Last question: I see you use Bontu's Last Reckoning with Selfless Spirit, but since it keeps your lands tapped, couldn't it stop you from playing a maybe topdeck Devouring Greed? Isn't it better to play a 4-cost boardwipe spell?

Anyway, thanks for the interest and for the help.

Possibly use Thoughtseize instead of Inquisition of Kozilek to be more disruptive. Otherwise great deck!

I've reduced the number of lands and add more creature ramp, added Merchant of the Vale, added more interaction Bedevil, Chaos Warp, Duress and Inquisition of Kozilek and additional recursion Forever Young. Bottom line is if you play this deck everyone knows what is coming and you have to be ready for it.

So, modern bant spirits runs a few things that you don't have and you don't seem to have great replacements for.

1) You don't have any acceleration. Bant runs Noble Hierarch and Collected Company, which either get their creatures out a turn early or get the two creatures for the price of 1. You can remedy this with your own acceleration with things like Aether Vial or by slowing your opponent down with things like discard spells like Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize

2) You're not running all of the best spirits. Supreme Phantom and Spell Queller are two of the best cards in the deck, and you're not running them. Additionally, things like Spectral Sailor are not the end all be all, but they are much better than things like Drowned Rusalka

3) Your deck is confused. You're running spirits, which are tempo cards, lingering souls and altar's reap which are value cards, and phyrexian rebirth, which is a control card. Spirits tends to have a bit of value built into a tempo deck, but I'd cut back some of the value/control only cards like deathknell kami and phyrexian rebirth.

All of my suggestions are ignoring your budget, but you may need to take that into consideration when building your deck. Here's a couple of resources on bant spirits and on how to buid your mana base (I think you're running too many lands) if you want some more ideas.
