While this deck has long been the better version of my Birds deck, that doesn't mean it couldn't be improved, and with play a few things have stuck out to me 1) Never having the right coloured mana. I own so many decks that upgrading them all with better mana bases is impossible, but I have finally conceded that this is one of my favourites and therefore should have something better than Tranquil Cove for dual mana. Note, still limited by a mix of what I had, what I could source, and what I could afford for the about £30 I was prepared to spend on these modifications.

-4 Tranquil Cove

-2 Island

-2 Plains

+4 Hengegate Pathway  Flip

+3 Glacial Fortress

+1 Hallowed Fountain

While I was buying cards, I decided to look into what did and didn't get played in this deck. Emeria Angel is a fantastic card, but it turns out that the 4 mana cost is too high, I'd rather be playing more smaller things. Also wanting to put it off until I could use the landfall made for poor play decisions, so it's being cut. In it's place needs to go removal. Sadly proxied for the time being.

-4 Emeria Angel

+4 Swords to Plowshares

The last two changes are cards I discovered while having a search. Warden of Evos Isle is the underrated MVP of this deck, I always misjudge how good it is. However being in White as well as Blue, it turns out that there's a cheaper Bird that does the same effect, with a little extra upside.

-4 Warden of Evos Isle

+4 Watcher of the Spheres

Last on the changes list are my blue enchantments. Favorable Winds and Gravitational Shift are both perfectly good cards, but the former is always a tad underwhelming for not having a body, and the latter is actually too much mana. so they're getting swapped for Empyrean Eagle which has a body and gives the boost too, at an acceptable 3 mana.

=3 Favorable Winds

-1 Gravitational Shift

+4 Empyrean Eagle

Alright, I swapped out:

Solitude for Giant Killer

Azor's Gateway  Flip for Cartographer's Hawk

A Plains for Winding Canyons

And am testing Binding Mummy in place of Monologue Tax . I like the idea here, binding mummy can do some serious work with God-Eternal Oketra out. Stopping attackers, tapping artifacts to lock people out of artifact effects or mana, etc. Maybe i’ll end up not utilizing it since the deck has become so much less reliant on Oketra, we’ll see.

Play Test Update 1

Finally got chance to play the deck in person! Learned a few things about the deck that were useful, and important too.

  1. list text hereThe deck is fun to play! I think this is the most important thing. got three games out of it and found I enjoyed both winning and losing because of the interactions in the deck.

  2. The manabase was inconsistent and too slow. There were way too many tapped lands in the deck, and some that I thought were useful such as the Ravnica Karoos were simply too slow and too much of a tempo loss. In a deck that wants tempo, this is not a good thing.

  3. Signets are not ramp. Got Boros Signet in hand more than once, and it felt bad every time. It, just like the Karoos is too slow, and really isnt the kind of ramp this deck wants.

With these lessons learned, I made some quick changes to the deck.

Changes

Out

Rakdos Carnarium Too slow, too much of a tempo loss.

Boros Garrison See previous.

Boros Signet Too slow to be real ramp, not what the decks needs.

Ur-Golem's Eye Too little impact for too high a cost. Need more coloured mana for a lower cost.

Shambling Vent Ugh. Got this out twice and I hated how slow it was. It never felt good in hand, and I never wanted to see it. I'd rather have had a basic.

Reliquary Tower Never needed to worry about hand size, don't need a colourless source.

Temple of Malice A fairly tough cut to be honest. I actually found the Scry really rather useful, but needed to balance the colours more, so off it went.

In

Springleaf Drum Something to do with the tokens I can create, or use creatures to help cast others.

Path of Ancestry Mana fixing, and a little extra filtering too.

Arcane Signet Pure and simple ramping! A much better card than Ur-Golem's Eye in this deck.

4 x Plains PUre and simple, the deck needed more basics! This also allowed me to balance the colours better too.

Cannot wait to play this deck again, it's really good fun to play even if it is a blatantly sub-optimal strategy in EDH.

This was a delight to read, looking forward to blue!

White has always existed for me in the realm of a support color. I actually own 0 decks as of this current moment in time that don't have white in them, yet I bash it all the time as a standalone.

I strongly believe white can do some silly and strong things, but it's no fun to sit across from the Atemsis, All-Seeing player who just cast Enter the Infinite and to look at your 2-card hand consisting of a Plains and a Sword of the Animist .

If/when (please when) WotC figures out what they want to do with white, then I believe we'll get the support we need to properly enjoy white commanders from all across the spectrum, not just the top-tier ones.

THE SHOW BUTTON DOESN'T WORK OMG HERE IT IS TYPED OUT LIKE A LOSER.

Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but wait...how 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

Polaris on What classifies as a permanent?

2 months ago

Yeah, the simplest test is whether something goes on the battlefield or not. If it goes onto the battlefield when you play it, it's a permanent.

Note, though, that lands are colorless, so Plains cards are not "white permanents" even though they are permanents and tap for . In general, white permanents are creatures, enchantments, or planeswalkers with in their mana costs. Artifacts are usually colorless but some, like Maul of the Skyclaves , would also count.

Hi, I just built a r/w Samurai deck and I want to trade for some basics from Kamigawa for it. Everything in my binder is up for trade for them except the Primal Amulet  Flip and Monastery Mentor .

I need up to 15x of each of:

Mountain (Champions of Kamigawa #299)
