Mangara, the Diplomat occurrence in decks from the last year

Mangara, the Diplomat Discussion

Nagoragama on Orzhov Inquisition (WB Cleric Tribal)

1 week ago

Added clerics Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Mangara, the Diplomat, and Bygone Bishop.

Added removal spells Despark and Dire Tactics (most of the clerics in the deck are humans).

Added ramp spell Talisman of Hierarchy.

I'll see what of the other suggested cards I can scrounge up (a lot of them are pretty pricey).

Willing to take any further suggestions!

Next step is card-draw and card-advantage. Unfortunately, the Boros colors are the worst at drawing cards. Graveyard recursion is a type of card advantage, so Colfenor's Urn can count. I've never seen that card before! Nice find and good instincts!

Here are some options for you.

First up, the cards I own that I'm willing to part with:

Seer's Sundial - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Key to the City - Infiltration Lens - Mask of Memory - Tome of Legends - Outpost Siege - Khorvath's Fury - Humble Defector - Chandra, Flamecaller - Magus of the Wheel


Cards I don't have that you should consider:

Tectonic Giant is mandatory! He's so good! Protector of the Crown is on-theme too--highly recommend.

Bonders' Enclave would be worth picking up, I think.

Browbeat - Loreseeker's Stone - Arcane Encyclopedia - Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip - Ignite the Future - Reforge the Soul - Wheel of Fate - Mind's Eye (used to be the gold-standard! Very mana-inefficient though) - Icon of Ancestry (interesting choice since it has the anthem) - Rogue's Gloves - Well of Lost Dreams (great choice with your commander!) - Coveted Jewel (ramp and draw! Unreliable and mana-expensive, but chaotic and fun!) - Mangara, the Diplomat - Runehorn Hellkite - Dragon Mage - Knollspine Dragon - Herald's Horn - Endless Atlas (a bit suspect in two-color decks unless your colors are very skewed or you have lots of Renegade Map-type cards) - Bag of Holding - Arch of Orazca - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Mazemind Tome


Underworld Breach, Sunbird's Invocation, and Stolen Strategy might count as card-advantage, should you feel jaunty. Stolen Strategy is definitely a fun card and get you fodder for Brion's throwing.

Howling Mine + Inspiring Statuary is kinda funny. Probably not worth it though.

Plans for updating the mana base to a alternative mana base version:

New Mana base:

Old Mana Base

What changes:

I can not consider any more lands that come into play tapped, i have 3 now which is already brutal

If you're aiming for a more cutthroat approach to the list, there are some key pieces of interaction and acceleration you're missing, and I've got suggested cuts as well:

I would also run the big three cantrips:

Before suggesting future cuts and changes, the next question becomes: How do you want to kill, and how do you want to get there? You and I spoke previously about this a bit, so I know you don't want to go for a creatureless Proteus Staff kill. Fish is a pretty compact wincon, but it seems to me that it may not be strictly necessary. You're going to run Top anyhow, so if you're holding your deck, you can find a way to win no matter what. My impression is that you can go a few different routes:

  • You can build a list that wants to manually storm off and kill with Aetherflux Reservoir. Reservoir provides a natural outlet to Top lines while also supporting a more traditional storm plan. This then has two subtly different approaches, one leaning on artifacts and one leaning on spells.
  • You can build a list that wants to assemble Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal for infinite storm and mana and then find an outlet for one or the other.
  • You can build a list that wants to resolve Fish or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with an empty library.

You're also in the colors for access to almost the entire Wheels package, in case that appeals to you:

Resolving any wheel with any lock piece is generally enough to just win the game.

Thoughts so far?

Monomanamaniac on One Man Armory - Voltron EDH

I'd suggest Mangara, the Diplomat, Flawless Maneuver, Thought Vessel, Verge Rangers, Eerie Interlude and maybe a coupe other things, but overall it's a solid list

Gadianten on Orzhov Inquisition (WB Cleric Tribal)

I am glad to be seeing more cleric tribal decks starting to show up, it seems the solid increase in cleric legendary prints has really helped. In my own experiments with tribal clerics, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim being my original cleric commander, have found that clerics excel in defense, resurrection and life gain but not offense compared to tribes like soldier and goblin tribal. That in mind I do have some recommendations to help maximize their potential.

Beat Sticks and offense: You have Doubtless One and Vile Deacon but don't forget to add Custodi Soulbinders and Mikaeus, the Lunarch to round out the heavy hitters. But there is more to offensive then just beat sticks, so I would consider Frontline Medic for no fear attacks and non cleric offensive aids like Reconnaissance, Dolmen Gate and Cover of Darkness to keep the clergy moving and Tymna earning her keep. From my experience in using Tymna you need evasion to keep drawing cards as trample is scarce in tribe. If you are feeling savage you can try Archangel of Thune and with the life gain available to the tribe it can get hilarious fast.

Card Draw: Most tribal decks I see have the same weakness and its card draw, even with Tymna the Weaver you can still get ground down to a halt, avoid that with some in tribe options to fuel the attack like Bygone Bishop, Custodi Lich, Twilight Prophet, Mangara, the Diplomat, Alms Collector, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Yawgmoth is a must have in my opinion as he removes the sting out of board wipes and allows removal if you really need it and can even discard one of your cards for reanimation abuse as well.

Defensive Options: Clerics probably have the best defenses out of all the tribes and at very low costs, some options I you should consider are Devoted Caretaker, Giver of Runes, Selfless Spirit and Songstitcher if fliers are a problem for you.

Tricks and Value Combos: An amusing combo I have played with before and found pretty funny was Hedron-Field Purists or Daunting Defender along with Pestilence. It can take a bit to assemble but is pretty funny when you do. Another value combo is Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Ancestor's Prophet.

Resurrection: To many options to list but I would recommend looking through the large amounts available and pack as many as you can in to increase endurance and grind opponents down. I can say from experience this can really clinch a victory.

Skyclave Apparition would be helpfull against crabs..

I may try adding Heliod's Punishment hadn't really conidered that one and i don't think i have ever seen it played. It actually makes a good bit of sense in this deck though.

Lavabrink Venturer is solid and can be inflated

I don't see Emeria's Call  Flip doing to much good, though it is castable with this deck, I guess you get a free attack but rarely could you shatter after it,

maybe take out Felidar Retreat, it often is awkward though it has saved a game or 2.

Mangara, the Diplomat x2 is another thought i was having to replace felidar.
