Loxodon Gatekeeper Discussion

CrimsonChaos on Kambal Deck

Actually, the oracle text on the Gatherer site for Kismet states that it does affect all opponents, so no worries there! With that in mind, it’s probably a little better than the Loxodon Gatekeeper mainly because enchantments are usually harder to get rid of than creatures, especially with that Greater Auramancy on the board.

I originally had Ghostly Prison in the deck, but replaced it with the Polluted Bonds since Norn's Annex and Sphere of Safety are both in the deck. I was thinking of adding Kismet as well, but figured since it only targets a single player and Loxodon Gatekeeper targets all opponents, it wasn't as beneficial. What would you recommend to pull if adding those cards?

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Not sure what kind of advice you're looking for because the deck is bad, but you know that already. Consider more hatebears? Increasing the pillowfort/opponent disruption strategies and decreasing everything else? Teeg is a good Commander for hatebears. You already have a few good ones Ouphe and Honor Guard, but consider more? Instead of playing a lot of lackluster creatures play hatebears that can both attack and disrupt your opponent. You can build a hatebear/pillowfort strategy on a budget especially since you already have Ghostly Prison

Cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lands:

Win Condition:

  • Luminarch Ascension : win condition when you have established a pillowfort and have your opponents disrupted. Repeatable source of 4/4 Angels that gets around many hatebears and disruptive enchantments/artifacts.
  • Sun Titan : can reanimate lots of different hatebears including Teeg, disruptive enchantments/artifacts or Wasteland/Strip Mine.

Hatebears:

Other:

If interested in these suggestions I offer more advice including potential cuts. Good luck with your deck.

This is really cool! I don’t play azorius at all but this deck looks like a lot of fun. I’ve also never heard of the 8x8 rule. Where does that come from?

Have you experimented with cards that have similar abilities to ones you’re using like Imposing Sovereign , Blind Obedience and Frozen AEther ? Kismet and Loxodon Gatekeeper have higher CMCs but they cover all the bases as far as what enters tapped. I would probably run one of them over Court Street Denizen since you’re only running about 13 white creatures. Ah wait... unless you have enough stuff that bounces creatures back then i guess my suggestion is a moot point.

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV seems like a shoe-in to help Lavinia hold down your opponents. But may not work for you if you’re looking to have creatures with ETBs.

I only really noticed you have Sift for card draw. What else do you have? Cause I must have missed some.

Anyway, Azorious is not my specialty but I hope I sort of helped. Good luck! +1

More red/white hate:

Price of Glory

Aven Mindcensor

Loxodon Gatekeeper

Imposing Sovereign

Tectonic Instability

Stranglehold

Sulfuric Vortex

Blood Moon

Bedlam

Heat of Battle

Heat Stroke

Onslaught

I see you are already running some creatures like Leonin Arbiter that does what Stranglehold does, but thought i throw the suggestions out there anyway.

Another option for ramp which I'm sure you are well aware of is Smothering Tithe .

And i would personally run Vandalblast over Mogg Salvage unless it works well in your meta. Dont get me wrong it’s a sweet way to cheat cmc but it’s very contextual.

Maybe Assemble the Legion or Crescendo of War for funsies?!

@ AdNauseam12 Thank you so much for your comment!!!

Yeah the more I look at Urza, Lord High Artificer the less I am impressed by him. We'll see what time does for him. I'll probably delete this deck list soon as I plan on using the cards I've ordered for this deck to help build Chain Veil Teferi. I think I will enjoy Teferi a lot more...

The deck list I based this one on is Urza Paradox Scepter so a few of the "interesting" choices are thanks to that list and I was planning on testing them myself.

Your right Trinket Mage should probably be run over an Island

You sound like you have a very fast meta. Your meta needs more stax players. They would probably do well.

The only fringe situation for not running fetches would be if you have Back to Basics and an opponent plays Kismet , Loxodon Gatekeeper , Orb of Dreams , or Thalia, Heretic Cathar . But the upside of deck shuffle and fetching after Brainstorm or Sensei's Divining Top makes them worth it. The real reason is that all my fetches are in Simic Moonfolk Landfall and that deck being a lands matter deck is very hungry to run the fetches.

Thank you for the complement on my alters. All of them (other then Narset, Parter of Veils official alternative Japaneses art) are hand painted on real copies of the cards (I do have unaltered copies of all the cards in this list to run in tournaments). Have you seen Klug Alters. His stuff is amazing and he is my card altering idol.

I actually ran an Infect deck in these colors for a while using Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Tymna the Weaver so I can certainly give you some insight based on my own experience.

Tap down effects can help give you an edge to get your Infect creatures in. Blind Obedience , Kismet , and Loxodon Gatekeeper are a few to consider. Behind the Scenes and Mirari's Wake can also be helpful. I would also recommend two of my favorite pump spells Berserk and Hatred to really close out a game. Cards like Guardian Project , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Sylvan Library , and Necropotence are all major card draw engines.

I would recommend some of these stax pieces:

There are creature-based variations of these as well:
