At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Peacekeeper unless you pay (1)(White).

Creatures can't attack.

Andromedus on Activate Oracle en-Vec before Peacekeeper …

1 month ago

Assume at the end of my opponent's turn I have Oracle en-Vec and Peacekeeper on the field.

The turn passes to me and the untap step ends. At this point I would like to use the Oracle's active (in order to force my opponent to declare attackers for their next turn) before I make a decision on whether to pay the Peacekeeper's upkeep cost.

Is this possible? Do I have to make the decision to do something with the Peacekeeper first (i.e. pay or not pay the upkeep), and then use the Oracle's active in response to my own decision? And if so can I then change my decision regarding whether I pay the Peacekeeper's upkeep cost after my opponent declares attackers?

Thanks for the help.

CriticalZER0 on Kynaios and Tiro, Embodiment of EDH (Group Hug)

alexjustdoit , Arachnogenesis is a cool card, but Settle the Wreckage and Comeuppance serve similar roles and can be tutored from Sunforger. Also I have no way to utilize the spider tokens (such as Craterhoof Behemoth) in the deck. I see in your list you run Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, so that is a good way to pump the tokens.

As for Collective Restraint, I think I would run Solitary Confinement or Peacekeeper before running that card.

Looking at your list a few things come to mind:

1) Wincon

It looks like you can win using the combos I have listed or through combat using Insurrection or Arachnogenesis + Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, but I think you could use another. With enough card draw Laboratory Maniac works well, but Approach of the Second Sun is another good win con.

2) Card Draw

I suggest running more card draw, I noticed you have no group hug style card draw effects besides Selvala, Explorer Returned, and you have no sorcery card draw (such as Sphinx's Revelation). I would suggest adding more card draw, either through enchantments like Sylvan Library or cards like Sphinx's Revelation.

3) Board Wipes

I get wanting your opponents to build up creatures so you can use them with Disrupt Decorum or Insurrection, but I think it is worth including spells like Austere Command, Farewell, Vandalblast, Cyclonic Rift, etc to control the board when you need to.

4) Flash Enablers

I have found that this style of control deck really wants to be able to play on other peoples turns, where you can hold up mana for either removal or countermagic, but play ramp or card draw if your opponents do nothing. Cards to support this include Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation. There is also great synergy with the Seedborn Muse you run when using these cards.

Some missing cards that are generically powerful that you could add are:

Cyclonic Rift


BrassLord on Hippo Buddies Ideas

11 months ago

Update: More playtesting after trading for a lot of cards! The deck is actually coming along pretty nicely! Primer to be released sometime soon! Bring to Light is a powerhouse of a card! added in city of brass and the like to help produce some colors outside of our identity for even more flexibility! While not necessarily nice, Enchanted Evening plus Calming Verse may as well be another "wincon," as I've had opponents scoop almost every time it goes off. In every game I played Dryad Arbor, it was promptly destroyed and set my already slow deck back a turn. Taking it out to make room for some other lands. Also found the gem Peacekeeper at local game store. It comes into play with a HUGE target on it's back, but it's ability has saved me a few times, or stalled long enough to get a "winning" combo in play. BTW huge Nonbo... Enchanted Evening plus Starfield of Nyx is a one sided Armageddon... still looking for the Opalescence to avoid this haha! Also, using slowpokes as hippo tokens is an AWESOME idea that I borrowed/stole! Trying to find fun friendly zombie tokes for the field of dead

Thanks, Focus_Jim ! I’ve really enjoyed and have appreciated white a lot more through this build.

I have copies of Tax, Tutor, and the map, they’re just in my Bruna deck right now. I feel like I can make some switches through and find them a home. I think the lifegain cards will be good adds! I hadn’t considered Peacekeeper as I feel like it’d automatically put a target on me, but I do see its benefit.

Thanks for the comment!

Glad to see mono-white getting some love! I have a few suggestions that might fit the deck. First off I’ll do the boring mono-white staples. It may be good to add Land Tax, Enlightened Tutor, and Archaeomancer's Map if budget is not a concern.

I noticed that you have some life gain strategy in there, few juicy suggestions are Soul Warden, and Soul's Attendant. Finally, in my opinion the ultimate pillow fort card would be Peacekeeper (if budget allows).

I think it works really well with her powers as someone who sees and alters fates. I'd like to see a card, preferrably a commander, with a unique built-in pillowfort method.

Current methods or deterrence:

Full Protection: Blazing Archon, Peacekeeper, and Glacial Chasm

Conditional Protection: Arboria, Elephant Grass

(Mana) Tax effects: Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Archangel of Tithes, Archon of Absolution, Forbidding Spirit, Elephant Grass, Windborn Muse, Baird, Steward of Argive, and War Tax (My favorite, I love the politics!)

Other costs: Norn's Annex, Reclamation, Flooded Woodlands

Hurt the attacking creature: Barbed Foliage, Briar Patch, Sarkhan the Masterless, Lightmine Field, and Lost in the Woods

Hurt the attacking player: Revenge of Ravens, Hissing Miasma, Blood Reckoning, Marchesa's Decree, Riddlekeeper? (Is this even a downside? It's not a cost, per the rules.)

Protect/Help you, the defending player: Revenge of Ravens, Righteous Cause, Orim's Prayer, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Search the Premises, Thantis, the Warweaver, Slumbering Dragon

I don't count Aurification-style effects, as the damage was already dealt.

griffstick on What to do against Rakdos, …

Zada, Hedron Grinder is kinda a glass cannon in aggro edh. It's usually a list that has 30 lands, lots of canttrips, very low on removal, and lots of creatures. This aggro strategy that is kinda a glass cannon will sometimes get mana screwed right away making it lose more games do to this then its other weaknesses, being something like Peacekeeper or Ghostly Prison or a well timed board wipe like Damnation
