Last_Laugh on Jetmir, Nexus of revels

Nice deck, I'd suggest more card draw and more ways to protect your board though.

Card Draw: Beast Whisperer and Sylvan Library both deserve spots and depending on how big your creatures reliably get, possibly The Great Henge.

Board Protection (combat): Dolmen Gate, Reconnaissance, and Iroas, God of Victory all allow you to swing all out without losing a single creature (and in the case of Recon, have everything untapped by the end of combat). Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is also good for both offense and defense.

Board Protection: Luminous Broodmoth, Sylvan Safekeeper, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Teferi's Protection, and Privileged Position will all help the resilience of this deck.

Guerric on [Primer] Enchantress's Pillowfort: A Tuvasa Guide

kookoo They are nice! My sole copy of Protection is in my super-friends deck where it saves my walkers from friends who overestimate the threat of planes-walkers in EDH and attack them incessantly. They need the help much more than my enchantments, but its a good card! Intervention is also great and saves my elves time and again, but Privileged Position and Sterling Grove are enchantments, and Arcane Denial stops everything, so those work here. That being said, by all means use them if you like, they are great!

golgarigirl on Praise the Shrine [Go-Shintai, Go!] [WIP]

For our main win, I would make sure we max out our draw and mana fixing, see if there's anything we can add in the budget that protects our enchants on board and/or adds recursion redundancy, and enables us to use their effects more. Ramp and fixing like Abundant Growth, Urban Utopia, Mana Bloom, and Fertile Ground may look unimpressive, but they are very helpful. Sanctum Weaver is an obvious call-out for this spot. Card draw/tutoring will be helpful to find the correct mana and the right shrines. We're missing a few relatively budget enchantresses Yavimaya Enchantress and Enchantress's Presence. Moon-Blessed Cleric is a cheap tutor to smooth things out as well. Protective pieces can be pricey (Privileged Position and Greater Auramancy, I'm looking at you) but there are a few good budget options we missed like Destiny Spinner, Resurgent Belief and Alchemist's Refuge. Finally, there are a few creative ways we can duplicate some of our triggers that we missed. Paradox Haze and Sphinx of the Second Sun will duplicate the effects of many of our 'old' shrines that trigger at the beginning of our upkeep. If we can get rid of legendary with Mirror Box (or a few more pricey options like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, we can duplicate our shrines with Estrid's Invocation, Mirrormade, and Clever Impersonator.

Secondary win, I would find things that make our creatures more effective. Cards like Bastion of Remembrance and The Meathook Massacre (though this may stay simply because it's a board clear as well) are going to be less impressive without sacrifice outlets. You could add a few...but those don't synergize well with your deck I feel. I would go with enters triggers instead like Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge if you happen to have one. A pump or two may be nice as vote goes to Dictate of Heliod since it can be a surprise...and buffs both your enchantment and non-enchantment creatures.

For cuts, then, I would look to higher-mana things and/or things that don't fit into these categories such as Pharika, God of Affliction, Bastion of Remembrance, Felidar Retreat, Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea, Muldrotha, the Gravetide

Ziusdra on Humans Take Flight

Nice looking human deck!

I'm surprised not to see Cathars' Crusade in here, with how many little creatures you have entering the battlefield. That can get out of hand very fast.

You might consider it as a replacement for Champion of the Parish. Commander might not be Champion's format, since even if he grows to be a 10/10, he is just a vanilla 10/10 and can be chump-blocked, and it would take a bunch of turns for him to take out all three opponents even at that power/toughness. Cards with abilities and that pump everything else tend to scale better in these bigger games. Cathars' Crusade turns ALL of your creatures into Champion of the Parish... if you can keep it from being destroyed.

To protect it, and also protect your commander and other stuff, consider maybe a Privileged Position. Also, Shalai, Voice of Plenty is worth a mention, as a mana sink in case your hand is empty and as hexproof for your commander and backup to hexproof yourself and your creatures and planeswalkers.

eliakimras on Ghired - Precon Primal Genesis - Heavy Upgrade

Hey, m4rs, I'm back with some spicy tech for your deck, this time regarding the big tokens themselves:

My suggestion, whenever possible, is to run creatures over other spell types for the same effect: they synergize better with your deck, despite being more vulnerable to boardwipes. (It makes you more explosive, which is better the higher you go on power level).

Now, as always, I want to suggest some removals:

  • I love Mimic Vat in battlecruiser games, but it doesn't pull the same weight on quick games. (It hurts to write it, but my beloved Soul Foundry might also only belong to Christmasland, since, if you don't have the mana to cast AND copy the creature right away, your opponents might see the danger incoming and remove the artifact before you get any value off it.)

  • Flamerush Rider requiring an attacking creature target right away means that your options are too limited. In my opinion, Delina, Wild Mage and Rionya, Fire Dancer are better cards for the effect.

  • Tendershoot Dryad might not belong here, since Ghired cares about quality, not exactly quantity of the tokens.

  • Esika's Chariot. I understand it already comes with its tokens for crewing, but getting a token copy of TOKEN creatures AFTER combat is too narrow for my taste (and you don't have noncreature tokens). Again, Rionya and Delina are better suited for this job.

  • Sword of Hearth and Home is good protection stapled to decent blink and ramp effects, but the ramp comes too late for Ghired to care, the blink is unreliable and the protection can be better executed by Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Saryth, the Viper's Fang (trample + deathtouch is nasty), Privileged Position or Asceticism.

  • Response / Resurgence is single-use. Aurelia, the Warleader's effect is repeatable.

  • What are your experiences with Warstorm Surge? I usually leave it out of my deck if I have access to Terror of the Peaks, since 6 mana is a lot in my games and the Terror is tutorable by cards you already run.

DemonDragonJ on Double Masters 2022 Predictions and …

3 months ago

Double Masters 2022 will not be released for several months, yet, but I am so excited about it that I wish to begin speculating about it, now. The first Double Masters set was wonderful and contained many great cards, so I have high expectations for the second set, as well, and I am certain that WotC realizes that the players are highly anticipating this set, as well.

Another reprint of Doubling Season would certainly be nice, as that is such an awesome card that it will always be expensive unless it is reprinted frequently, but I know that WotC is not likely to reprint it again, so soon after reprinting it in the first Double Masters set, so reprints of both Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives would also be greatly appreciated.

Rhystic Study, Smothering Tithe, Dockside Extortionist, Edgar Markov, Exquisite Blood, Reflecting Pool, and Vedalken Orrery are all very expensive, so definitely need to be reprinted, in my mind.

Ancient Spider, Book of Rass, Dromar, the Banisher, Fungal Shambler, and Mystic Remora are not especially expensive, but have never been reprinted in the modern card frame, so it would be nice to see them reprinted with it. Similarly, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic and Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis were originally printed in the modern frame, but not the Magic 2015 version of that frame, so I would like to see them reprinted with it.

Chromatic Lantern and Privileged Position are not too expensive, but definitely still should be reprinted, to keep them available and affordable.

I definitely would like to see Absorb, Recoil, and Undermine reprinted, preferably downgraded to uncommons, since I do not feel that they should be rares by today’s standards, and further reprints of Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Thran Dynamo, and Gilded Lotus would also be nice, as well. Arcane Signet and Commander's Sphere are not expensive, but they are difficult to obtain in foil, so reprints in this set would help with that, but that is not likely to happen, since this is not a Commander set.

What does everyone else say about this? What are your hopes and prediction for Modern Masters 2022?

Building off of this, I see the Abzan cards making a life gain/pillow fort set. With Izsheio and the Orzhov one above, could create a fog effect, or maybe a temporary Privileged Position.
