Intervention Pact has the text box " : pay on your next upkeep or lose."

Lone Missionary is a far better card in Modern and Legacy, where it and aggro decks exist, and Arashin Cleric isn't too bad in Pioneer.

"But it's good in commander!!!!1!" Nope. It's probably hitting one token, or one of the creatures Hoofie buffed, or their commander one time. Let's see what does much, much better: Fog , Holy Day , Clinging Mists , Blinding Fog , Arachnogenesis and Teferi's Protection , most of which are unplayable and the best are, well, Teferi's Protection is pretty good because white doesn't get much else.

Compared to Pact of the Titan, which is Bonebreaker Giant except it has flash and you don't have to pay for it immediately.

It's like comparing a Frito to draft chaff. One shouldn't be in your deck, and other's life purpose is to be destroyed.

Nice build. May you should include Lone Missionary or Arashin Cleric in the sideboard against burn.

TriusMalarky on Lifegain cards

7 months ago

On the note of lifegain, life is far and away one of the least important resources in the game. It's only relevant against aggro or if you are actively using it as a resource with, for example, Ad Nauseam or Sign in Blood.

There are two main reasons to include lifegain: either you get advantages with cards like Ajani's Pridemate, Griffin Aerie, Resplendent Angel, etc., in which case you mostly want creatures with lifegain or Fountain of Renewal. Otherwise, you're looking at effects like Lone Missionary, Arashin Cleric or Life Goes On/Chaplain's Blessing as sideboard cards against aggro.

TriusMalarky on Which Colors are Secondary and …

I'd say green is, in 60-card, the best for huge bursts of life.

White has lifegain tacked to creatures, so it's also pretty good in 60-card.

Both of those, however, are limited to Sideboard tech as Lone Missionary and Life Goes On and Kitchen Finks and such.

If you want lots of real life gain that works MD, you want Black. In 60-card you get Sovereign's Bite, Collective Brutality and Alms of the Vein. In EDH and 60-card Aristocrats builds, you get Blood Artist effects.

But did you know that artifacts are pretty darned good at gaining life? A lot of the best lifegain engines are artifacts.

i would take out Lone Missionary for Veteran Armorer or Lumithread Field to protect your creatures form Electrickery . Cut a Mourning Thrull , a Soul Warden OR a Soul's Attendant and a Plains for 3x Night's Whisper , you are going to need the card draw. Replace the Castigate with Harsh Sustenance or Unmake.

sideboard:

Take out Shadowfeed and put in Beckon Apparition , i think it will synergies with with the soul sisters and Edge of the Divinity by giving you a white/black creature token. take out Nihil Spellbomb for Relic of Progenitus , trade out the Swamp in the sideboard for a Bojuka Bog or 2x by taking out 1x Bonesplitter . Replace the Castigate and Disenchant with 3x Standard Bearer.

maybeboard:

Crimson Acolyte , Obsidian Acolyte , Prismatic Strands , Battle Screech , Rune of Protection: Red , Rune of Protection: Green , Epicure of Blood , Oblivion Ring

sorry about the last post with no hyperlinks to the card names. i am new

Really like the theme of this deck.

Only criticism of the deck is maybe incorporate a strategy that can also combat strategies that can go around your Kor Hookmaster plan, such as Burn or Elves.

Against Burn I'd definitely recommend Lone Missionary , bouncing or flickering it twice or even once will probably make a Burn player scoop.

Against Elves and other Swarm decks Holy Light will help you out a lot.

Also, control or big mana decks like Tron would eat this deck alive so I'd add a way to attack their mana bases such as Spreading Seas or Reality Acid .

And you should put in Archaeomancer because of its stupid combo with Ephemerate .

I hope I have helped. Please ask any more questions if you have any. You have a great day!

Blue_Flame on [Competitive] Burning Trains

Hey man! This is Phunlife from XMage. I've been really busy as of late so I've just got to looking at this. I did have it saved though so I would remember to come back and look at it.

Overall, looks good! I do have a couple suggestions for the sideboard though, especially if you want this to compete against top tiers -

I don't understand what exactly Hallow is for or what matchup it could be good in - maybe Tron's Rolling Thunder ? But even so, it feels like a very narrow sideboard card, and I think it could be cut. Maybe Prismatic Strands would be of interest to protect against Burn, or Lone Missionary as additional life gain as well as a body on the field. But Hallow just overall seems like it could be useful in a handful of situations to me.

With both Orzhov Pestilence and Tron on the rise, I'd look into Palace Sentinels as a 2-of in the sideboard. Both of those decks can easily take you to the late game, and without a card advantage engine I think you're lost against them. It's especially good against Orzhov if you can steal the Monarch from them too :D.
