Norn's Annex

Artifact

( can be paid with either or 2 life.)

Creatures can't attack you or a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays for each of those creatures.

Dead_Blue_ on Monoblack Burn [Budget/Casual/Jank]

The Value in Vicious Rumors is that it is a great precursor to Smallpox it attacks the opponents hand and pings for life. I know it doesn’t read impressive but it’s great in practice

So the main thing about Syphon Life is that it’s a great late game wincon. You turn all those late game land top decks into burn spells

I think the main thing holding this deck back is that it needs to hide behind an Ensnaring Bridge prison effect for you to win without being aggro’d to death first. Bridge isn’t budget but you could run Norn's Annex instead

S U P E R F R ! E N D S usually ends up as Atraxa or 5 color but I will be exploring mono colored deck building for the remainder of the year.

I started off by building my own Djeru list (thanks for the inspiration) Here were 5 cards I found in my collection that I felt belong in the mono white strategy:

Equipoise weird old card that doesn't see enough play. I utilize it in my 5 color build to great effect. Easy to abuse in a planeswalker strategy.

Honor-Worn Shaku planeswalker secret tech.

Luxior, Giada's Gift value.

Norn's Annex pretty sure this is the best/most efficient pillow fort.

Whenever I see a deck full of basic lands I always suggest Dust Bowl.

I haven't played Atraxa, but I do play a Superfriends deck helmed by Aminatou, the Fateshifter, so I could give a bit of advice from my experience that might be helpful to yours. The first is that board wipes rock. In most decks I am down to two to three now, but in Superfriends they are a great way to protect our planeswalkers, and since creatures aren't the biggest deal for us they don't set us back too much. Semester's End is also a really great way to protect them. It also resets them and they start with an extra counter, which is a plus! I'm also surprised you aren't playing Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, and Norn's Annex, as these cards are great protection. Even Sphere of Safety can be playable. Pillowfort cards like this take the pressure off of our walkers and blockers. I will also say, I never thought of playing Rings of Brighthearth in a superfriends deck, but that is a great idea! I've always wanted to play that card, so now I'll pick it up for my PW deck. Great idea!

Also, this is just a flavor thing, but since a Phyrexian is helming this deck and many of the PWs are villains, wouldn't The Injustice Leage be a better name? Great work!

Guerric on Oloro's Gambit

I think the key thing with Oloro is figuring out the direction you want to take him, as he can be played many ways. In any deck, you want to gain life and use life as a resource to do what your deck already wants to do. So, in addition to some of the cards you have here, people tend to play things like Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Dawn of Hope, Eye of Vecna, and Cosmos Elixir that draw cards off of lifegain or pay life to get cards. They then try to multiply these effects with cards like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Alhammarret's Archive. The Soul Sisters (Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant do a lot of work towards gaining this life as well.

Beyond that, there are several approaches towards winning. One is the pillowfort control/disruptive aggro approach. This type of deck uses pillowfort cards like Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex, and Crawlspace or Sphere of Safety (if you have a lot of enchantments) in order to keep attackers from messing with you. They then use counter-spells and removal to keep other players from winning, and win by attacking in the air with large creatures who often have lifelink, with cards like Dream Trawler, Serra Ascendant, Archangel of Thune, and Drogskol Reaver being optimal choices.

I'll post the other option in a second.

Hi ladypickleton! This looks like fun! Oloro is what drew me into commander, and I always envisioned myself building him, though strangely I never did! Since you're running Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood I am guessing you aren't averse to combos. I know you've run this for awhile, so maybe you tried flashing out Test of Endurance or Felidar Guardian with Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, or, in the latter case, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. I always thought that would be a fun alternative win con. I'd also think that Propaganda and Norn's Annex could be good complements to Crawlspace and Ghostly Prison if you need more pillowfort elements. Beyond that Teferi's Ageless Insight and Alhammarret's Archive can be good draw more pieces, and Sigarda's Splendor and Cosmos Elixir, while pricey in mana, can be great draw engines in a lifegain deck.

NTakamura on Cards that encourage other players …

4 months ago

I have a Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts deck where the goal is to encourage other player to attack me and other certain card such as Norn's Annex Revenge of Ravens will trigger. So my question is what are some good cards that can make it more beneficial/forceful to attack me? So far I have, Angel's Trumpet Coveted Jewel Curse of Disturbance Curse of Vitality Luminarch Ascension Season of the Witch

Here is the deck Teysa Ghostly Instigator

Forkbeard on Lyra Dawnbringer: Seek & Destroy

Made a few tweaks...

In: Cosmos Elixir, Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire, Giada, Font of Hope, Starnheim Aspirant, Esper Sentinel & Mangara, the Diplomat

Out: Angelic Arbiter, Plains, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Ghostly Prison, Gauntlet of Power & Norn's Annex

I still want to have a few bombs in the deck, but taking a couple of the high cost angels out in favour of draw options + a few more efficient but on theme pieces may help the game plan.
