Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero Discussion

gwmort72 on Everything Tribal

3 weeks ago

I originally was using Morophon, the Boundless , but didn't get much use out of it, by the time I had enough mana to cast it everyone was ready to do something about it (counters/removal) so it didn't pay off much. I love the instant constant value I get from The Ur-Dragon , especially if I can spread the dragon type around with Arcane Adaptation or Maskwood Nexus .

I will eventually build a dragon deck, and given the mana cost of dragons I am likely to fill in the lower part of the curve with changelings. However, the "theme" of this deck is to be spread across as many tribes as possible. Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero pulling any changeling out of my library onto the field for just its mana cost is a great example, no one is running Rebel tribal.

Martianno on Slivers of Velis Vel

Hi! Thank you very much for the comment and the suggestions!

I have to confess, I didnt know Unnatural Selection until now. It is definetly a great card in this deck! I should consider to add it. However I would not replace Wings of Velis Vel in spite of the fact that it looks to be quite weak. The changelling instants are essential during the gameplay. Let me explain why:

  • It is every creature type so Sliver Overlord is able to find it directly. He can tutor a "sliver card", not a "sliver permanent", what means a great flexibility for all of the changelling instants.

  • It is every creature type so with Morophon, the Boundless on board you can actually cast it just for

  • It is every creature type so you can easily reanimate these instants via Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero . She is able to put a "Rebel card" not a "Rebel permanent" on the bottom of your library. That is how you can play it repeatedly.

  • The Wings of Velis Vel is quite versatile as well. Many times I have used the card as sort of "removal" of an opponent's dirty flyer when I have created my own surprising 4/4 flying blocker.

  • Last but not least: I dont want to fully optimize the deck. I would like to keep a bit of its sense of "lore". Therefore I want to play the tribal lands as Ancient Amphitheater , Gilt-Leaf Palace or Murmuring Bosk . For this reason I need a number of changelling cards to keep them functional (to reveal a Giant, Elf, Treefolk etc and to play them untapped)

Sure it is possible to replace Tendo Ice Bridge by Mana Confluence . In this case I just worry a bit to play too many pain lands, because the deck is not extremly fast and it doesnt have any easy way how to gain life.

You are right about the bordwipe as well. I used to play the Whelming Wave as a cheap and lore variant of Cyclonic Rift . Later, I beleave, I have replaced it with a counterspell, because I havent used it much. Anyway.. it is still in my mind.

Thank you once more for the comment and for discovering Unnatural Selection for me ;)

MagicMarc on Tutor me on Tutors

To put in any commander deck regardless of color choices: Ring of Three Wishes and Planar Bridge.

Also, a non-traditional type of tutoring like Liliana Vess and similar walkers or tap to search creatures like Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero.

I always liked using Training Grounds and similar effects with the level up creatures - good candidates include Brimstone Mage, Hada Spy Patrol and Kabira Vindicator. I also felt it really put Dark Impostor over the top!

If you were willing to make room for a toolbox, it also pairs perfectly with the rebels (Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero et al.) and other creature-fetchers like Skyshroud Poacher, Moggcatcher and Seahunter.

Glad to see another Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero Deck out there. +1 form me. Maybe you want to have a look at my deck: Lin Sivvi's Rebels. Some suggestions from me:

hybrid_theory on It’s Harvest Time

I've played a lot of reaper king decks including the tribal tribal version. I highly highly recommend Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero , Skyshroud Poacher , etc. as repeatable changeling tutors. Moggcatcher is particularly nice with Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Ringleader (2 + 4 mana over 2 turns == tutor at least 4 changelings). Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling combo is also conspicuously absent; it's totally on theme and very nice to have when facing down something like Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

As for tribal payoffs, one card that I've found to be really good with a bunch of changelings in play is Voidmage Prodigy , especially because this deck has no counter magic otherwise. I also really like Gemhide Sliver for ramp and Azami, Lady of Scrolls for card draw.

On the topic of more general recommendations, Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are excellent ramp in these kinds of decks. For additional vindicate triggers, I really like Flameshadow Conjuring (which goes infinite with Deadeye Navigator and Bloom Tender fyi). Finally, Conflux is usually fantastic.

Here's my (slightly outdated) list if you're interested
