These are typically the "core" Modern spirits creatures:

Now you're on a budget so I think Queller and Selfless are out. But if you can squeeze Wanderer and Phantom into your budget (I'd replace Tallowisp and your two 2x spirits), I highly highly recommend. A scalable utility 1 drop and a 2 drop lord make a huge difference. Then you can probably cut to 22x lands.

You usually want slightly more blue than white mana sources, since more of your color pips are blue in most spirits decks. Try 1-2 extra Island, swapping out Plains.

I don't like Temple of Enlightenment, a tapped land is such a tempo killer for this deck. Any chance you can acquire Port Town in its place?

For creature removal, since Path to Exile is presumably not an option, try Sky Tether. Your creatures almost always fly so in a lot of cases this is as good as actual removal, and for 1 mana too.

I've tried Staggering Insight and I honestly don't think it's worth it at 2 mana. Curious Obsession imo is better if you want this sort of effect. If instead you decide you don't want any of this, I suggest something cheap like Spell Pierce, just as a nice easy out to planeswalkers and other noncreature stuff people might drop on you.

Hope some of this helps you out. Good luck! Spirits is insanely fun.

king-saproling on A Sliver Deck With No Slivers?!!

This deck is beauteous. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be a fun include since your general can tutor for Shields of Velis Vel ;) You might consider these too: Bishop of Wings, Rattlechains, Crested Sunmare, Risen Reef, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Drogskol Captain, Hero of Goma Fada, Harabaz Druid, Wirewood Channeler, Midnight Entourage, Whelming Wave.

Also, the changeling champions (Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero, Changeling Titan) could be neat since your general can tutor for them and if you loop all three of you get an arbitrary number of ETB triggers in any creature type. You could draw your deck with Azami or Risen Reef, blow up opponents' boards with Reaper King, get infinite life with Bishop of Wings!

Yes! Reaper King! That card has always been close to my heart, so it's always great to see a deck for him.

I've brewed with it extensively, so I have some suggestions for you:

Due to all of the changelings, you can really abuse those creature types. Naban, Dean of Iteration will duplicate triggers with "scarecrows" and Rattlechains can grant them all flash.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , if it's within budget, allows for quite a bit of card draw and a win-condition attached to it.

Gisa and Geralf will be able to recur the changelings for later use.

Knight Exemplar is fantastic defense for your board, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can draw many cards, Sygg, River Guide can protect creatures, and Ingenious Infiltrator can be awesome if you start to swarm. With so many creatures, Call to the Kindred could be cute.

Harsh Mercy or Kindred Dominance can be largely one-sided wraths, so that's something to note.

Reaper King is a massive target whenever he hits the field, so it's important to have a few backup plans.

Good luck with Scarecrows and Vindicate EVERYTHING!

Thanks for the comment Loganrockwitch.

Lingering Souls is really nice yep!

I have tried Inq and Thoughts it can be really good but to be honest its so painful especially with the land pain so Id rather play spirits and get the clock ticking faster.

If I had Aether Vial in this deck, I would probably remove some Rattlechains but really the flash/hexproof is sick and works so good for this deck.

Countersquall is nice to have encase of board wipes and the 2 life loss can be game winning

Essence Flux is great for another Rattlechains trigger or protection by blinking.

Id be up for changing Trickbind for Tale's End it has been nice for a counter on legendary spells.

Have you considered this Rattlechains to give your spirits flash?

Loganrockwitch on Esper Spirits - Modern

Hello nice deck, i really like Lingering Souls here. My suggestion is to cut Countersquall Essence Flux Trickbind as well as 3x Rattlechains and put 3x Inquisition of Kozilek and 3x Thoughtseize .

JararoNatsu on Spirit Bounce w/ Soulherder?

1 year ago

With the recent Soulherder card that's going to be released soon, I am considering building a W/U tribal Spirit deck that centers around bouncing creatures to buff it up, as well as using ETB effects to lock down the opponent. Obviously I would use cards like Nebelgast Herald , Rattlechains , and Spell Queller , as well as cards like Essence Flux , Path to Exile , and maybe even Always Watching ? I'd also maybe like to include Geist of Saint Traft , Brago, King Eternal , and Drogskol Captain if I can, but they may not fit.

I'm hoping I can get some suggestions for card choices here? I pretty much have lands covered and most of the creatures, but any suggestions would be most welcome. I'd like to keep this tribal, too.

Thanks!

In an all-spirit deck like this, I wouldn't leave home without a set of Supreme Phantom . Rattlechains is also a cheap way of messing with combat math throughout the game. Since your two Spiritual Visits only have each other to splice on, I'd recommend something like Topplegeist in their place.
