Mausoleum Wanderer

Creature — Spirit


Whenever another Spirit enters the battlefield under your control, Mausoleum Wanderer gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

Sacrifice Mausoleum Wanderer: Counter target instant or sorcery spell unless its controller pays , where X is Mausoleum Wanderer's power.

Really cool deck idea! There are a few cards you might want to think about, namely Katilda, Dawnhart Martyr  Flip, Mausoleum Wanderer, and Rattlechains. Crypt Ghast is amazing, but only if you add in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Mausoleum Wanderer seems out of place in this deck. I get that you have it as a possible counter spell, but it just doesn't seem to fit once you get late game. Anyway, interesting take on the U/W shell-- I like it!

In case Mausoleum Wanderer turns out to be some sort of nonbo with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, such as if you have a second wanderer in hand and one wanderer available to swing and casting the second would run the first into blockers, Judge's Familiar with the Siren Stormtamers in the side might be interesting

Thanks for the interest, everyone.

mlequesne: I just couldn’t get a handle on the grixis mana base, so rather than push out a poor effort I decided to forgo it and just stick with two colors. Lightning Skelemental is an awesome card, and it was originally part of the design, but it’ll have to wait. We do have Thunderkin Awakener though which is pretty much a reusable Unearth in this build!

Corrosive_Cat I hadn’t thought of including Mausoleum Wanderer, it might be a good replacement. Another user suggested Siren Stormtamer instead of Cursecatcher—would you still go with the spirit?

I think Mausoleum Wanderer is essentially strictly better than Cursecatcher here, perhaps. Could even be worth cramming in a couple of Dragon Mantles to boost its countering ability, and swing for more damage.

I love the name.

Some comments:

You don't have a single one drop/turn one play, other than Vial. That's definitely a big tempo loss. Jabberjaw46 mentioned Mausoleum Wanderer for the sideboard, which is a good suggestion, except I strongly think you should put all 4 copies of it mainboard.

Supreme Phantom is an amazing card. I'd up it to a playset.

Honestly, I've always been lukewarm about Geist. Yes, it is a hard to remove threat that can win games on its own, but the creature itself has no evasion, plus the angel token that's created isn't a spirit so it doesn't benefit from our lords.

I think you might be going a bit overboard on the removal and counterspells. I like that the deck is a bit more controlly than most UW spirits which makes it a little more unique, but if you add too many of these other spells it makes it harder for you to churn out enough creatures and lords and make full use of Vial. I'd just straight up cut the Mana Leaks. 4 Counterspells total feels like the highest I would go, since you also have 4 Queller (2 Counterspell 2 Force of Negation seems like a good split to me). Same for removal, you have 4 Apparition so I'd cut down to 4 removal spells tops as well (whether you keep path or on thin ice is personal preference I guess). Removing these will give you space for Mausoleum Wanderer and more Supreme Phantoms.

In case you want more spirits, Rattlechains and Shacklegeist are two that I like. Cemetery Illuminator is a new card that looks interesting for the sideboard, doubling as grave hate and CA engine. Guardian of Faith is nice as a one of in the sideboard against wipes.

Not an expert on U/W spirits but I can give a few suggestions

Mausoleum Wanderer in the side board at least can really help against certain matchups

If you would like, you can go the Tallowisp route, with auras like Steel of the Godhead. This strategy works really well with Geist of Saint Traft, as a 4/4 unblockable lifelinking beater that makes 4/4 angels is pretty good. If you do go this route, I also suggest Hyena Umbra and Unstable Mutation, offering protection and brute force respectively.

Also Rattlechains can work well if you like

I love Pithing Needle in the sideboard, but I think that Crystallization can be cut, I think you have enough removal/ counters so you can keep the board mostly clear. Throw in some yard hate.

not sure about Norn's Annex in the side board, maybe more removal or possibly Supreme Verdict in that spot. In my eyes you'd play annex against a fast creature deck, turn 5 is too late and turn 3 plus 4 life seems pretty steep as well. Spirits have always struggled from trying to control, but also being aggressive by nature. Again I'm not sure hoe the meta works with this card, as I am not actively playing modern, but it just seems strange to me.

This is 100 percent up to you but if you feel you easily get a snow land out for On Thin Ice, then you can throw in Minamo, School at Water's Edge /Celestial Colonnade / Eiganjo Castle

Other than that I really like the deck 10/10 name btw lmao let me know If I need to clarify anything or if you need any more help!
