Mirri's Guile


At the beginning of your upkeep, you may look at the top three cards of your library, then put them back in any order.

After seeing it play a few times, I think Mirri's Guile, Threefold Signal, and Radiant Grove should come out for some lands, consider Gaea's Cradle, Castle Garenbrig, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip or even just some forests.

Happy new years Mortlocke,

May this message find you and yours all well and good.

I come seeking an opinion on a particular card that I think I am going to take a punt on. Chimil, the Inner Sun seems really good. Discover 5 is right at the top end of the Sliver creature spells, and ultimately whatever I show can be put in hand if needed. Also makes all your spells uncounterable. Am torn on what to cut to give it a crack. Think maybe cut Carpet of Flowers or Mirri's Guile. Leaning towards Carpet as tbh, when I play it, most just stop playing Islands lol.

Anyway, hope you are well, and look forward to your response

The deck's card-advantage could use a little love. It seems you've tried to keep the deck on a budget (for the most part). I think Slate of Ancestry could be very useful in a pinch; it's very strong in a token deck and it's not very expensive to obtain. More expensive upgrades on this front could be cards like Sylvan Library or even Mirri's Guile.

You have lots of cat lords, Feline Sovereign, Kaheera, the Orphanguard, King of the Pride, etc. as well it works with self-modifiers like Loam Lion and Qasali Pridemage the new cat Sovereign Okinec Ahau can permanently +1/+1 counter your cats. Notably missing (in your maybeboard) Regal Caracal would give everyone lifelink too.

Glittering Lynx seems off, the isn't that disruptive for an opponent if it matters. I think you're trying to maximize your MV 1-drop cats, but Arcbound Mouser would give you a second Trained Caracal with upside instead. Lion Sash is also nice, but it is MV 2-drop.

The other new cat would be good: Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar, he could replace something like a vanilla Leonin Skyhunter or a mana sync like Bronzehide Lion or a really high cmc creature with low value like Jareth, Leonine Titan who probably is a win-more at MV6 that won't turn a loss into a win, really he MV7 to activate. Card in that MV slot has to be extremely impactful. Cats like Scrounging Bandar also work well with this new cat. Limiting interaction on your turn especially flashing in +3 spells (Indomitable Might) is really nice.

Leonin Relic-Warder is nice for controlling artifacts/enchantments and providing another MV2 cat.

Everybody Lives! gives another Heroic Intervention type effect.

Farseek is MV2 but I'm betting Harvest Season probably does more work at MV3. 35 lands seems like a lot for a low curve, maybe some low MV ramp like Talisman of Unity. Boseiju, Who Endures is a good forest but it's stupid expensive.

Rancor is a really nice trample/evasion enabler. Or like a Shadowspear or something which also helps out with Indestructibles blocking your cats. Pridemalkin is on a cat body, but don't like the MV3.

Mirri's Guile is okay, but a bit of a trap, way more value at MV2 with Sylvan Library

Song of the Dryads I get for locking out a commander but some instant interaction like Stroke of Midnight are usually more utility in more situations, might be a meta card though.

Eladamri's Call will bring up consistency to draw the finisher cats.

Goldbranner, had a chance to try your strategy this past weekend and ended up winning 2/3 games mostly due to token doubler shenanigans with Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession. Ended up hitting my friend with a buffed Sanctum Weaver for 4 billion damage. Thanks for the tip! Couple questions about specific enchantments as I'm pretty new to this whole archetype:

  1. If nobody in your pod plays blue what do you swap Carpet of Flowers out for?

  2. Is Mirri's Guile superior to Sylvan Library because we generally don't need the extra draw?

  3. Is Reconnaissance just for free attack triggers off Anikthea without dying?

  4. Is Malakir Rebirth  Flip more for the backside of the land? Kaya's Ghostform fits the enchantment theme better but lacks the surprise factor. Also if we have a Greater Auramancy up then we can't hit Anikthea with the Malakir when there's a boardwipe. That's burned me a few times when I tried to use targeted protection in response to wipes.

  5. Have you played around with Concordant Crossroads? It seems like it could accelerate us a turn when we're popping off.

  6. Is there a reason you're not running Grim Guardian? I liked it as an alternate finisher when someone drops The One Ring or a Solitary Confinement or other fog style effects.

  7. Have you tried Gravebreaker Lamia? At 5CMC it's much more than Entomb but I've brought her back with Anikthea and populated it before for a "targeted" mill/tutor which seemed more efficient than the generic mill from our other cards.

I would run Sylvan Library over Mirri's Guile personally. It's a MUCH better card.

I would cut Mirri's Guile personally. I think the card is just ok. Not great and not necessary. I started playing during Ice Age. Jester's Cap was my first ever favorite card. It also allows you to remove huge combo pieces or mass removal from anyone's library.
