Iona, Shield of Emeria Discussion

- So for longer grinderier games I have counter magic, and its a combo deck it needs to go fast. I'm never hard casting any of the creatures so id rather have Iona, Shield of Emeria . Plays like that seem to me as more of a SB plan.
- I have 5 copies of my combo card, which is cheaper than through the breach so I'd rather just have more of those. It also makes it so I dont have to have my 1 of in hand.
- Any thoughts on slight of hand, fact or fiction, metamorphos?

Great idea! What happens if Emrakul, the Aeons Torn gets exiled as soon as it comes in? You need a backup, either more than one Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in the deck or the other Emrakul, or Ulamog, or Worldspine Wurm . Also Iona, Shield of Emeria is a great sideboard choice that locks down all mono colored decks. Here is an example of fantastic deck in slightly different colors but similar idea Poly'M'rakrul, but this one has access to blue which allows them to run counterspells thus not worry about removal most of time. You don't have that leisure here since you are so I would strongly recommend on back up creature. Good luck.

Six cards on this list aren't legal in Pioneer...
Change these with cards legal and pioneer and you'll be set

Thanks for your comment and suggestion. I don't think that Iona, Shield of Emeria is legal in Pioneer, because the last non-reprint set it was in was Zendikar, which is not legal in Pioneer. If it were legal in Pioneer, I probably wouldn't have added it anyway, because she costs 9 and it'll be too slow.

Hey guys, i need some tips in order to power up this Pauper UB Dimir into a casual format powerhouse. The only restriction is no single card more expensive than 50$ - 60$. My main opponents would be RW Dragons (with cards like Thundermaw Hellkite ; Grand Abolisher ; Mother of Runes ) and GW Angels with Avacyn, Angel of Hope ; Iona, Shield of Emeria ; Baneslayer Angel and some Elves to ramp mana. There are even some Circles of protecion and Leyline of Lifeforce here and there.
This is my deck: Dimir Alchemy

To make the game last against aggro strategies you could use Ratchet Bomb as your holy hand grenade (it can get rid of tokens the same turn you cast it, or creatures with converted mana cost 1, 2, 3, relatively fast), or else, you can use Sunscour , although I would put it in the sidedeck because you may play against decks wihtout cratures -thats why i prefer Ratchet Bomb -.
You can also use Runed Halo on yourself. It can prevent black cards with "sacrifice" mechanics, or prevent the damage of a creature full of auras, and help with repetitive red cards focused on life damage.
I recommend Angel of the Dire Hour , and make sure you have 4x Resplendent Angel , after all, they can decide the game all alone. You can also have more Shalai, Voice of Plenty if you think it is necessary, although Voice of All with deathtouch ir more elegant.
Adding an extra color you could also think to exchange all your artifacts for board wipe strategies like Akroma's Vengeance , Merciless Eviction along with the Brave the Elements strategy (to save your creatures). And maybe Profane Procession Flip, Kaya's Guile and Vindicate .
You could also find better lands to match this deck. You are only using "plains". I know it demands some researching, but you gonna have to do it sooner or later.
After this you could focus on a sidedeck against discard, blue counter, or something else. Like Luminarch Ascension , which is already there, and more cards related with the graveyard.
