Remorseful Cleric Discussion

I'd recommend the addition of Fleetfoot Panther , Kor Skyfisher , Ephara, God of the Polis , Whitemane Lion , and/or Stonecloaker . Glimpse of Nature is banned. Glowrider is a cheaper Thorn of Amethyst for budget and drawing cards. Land-based ramp tends to be more defended against removal such as Vandalblast and Austere Command , so Kodama's Reach and Cultivate would be a worthy inclusion. Chulane himself is a massive target on board, so Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are worthy backups. Rest in Peace could be replaced with Remorseful Cleric , but that's personal preference.

Hey, nice start. If fliers are the direction you're going my advice is to look at Edric decks for more inspiration. Many Edric strategies use little fliers and unblockable creatures to draw cards and cast extra turn spells. You could do similar; little fliers to draw cards and untap your lands for ramp or mana for repeatable mana sinks that you can use at instant speed.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Battle Screech
  • Migratory Route
  • Bower Passage
  • Beguiler of Wills
  • Galecaster Colossus
  • Azami, Lady of Scrolls
  • Secure the Wastes
  • Sage Owl

Remorseful Cleric is a decent complement to the two graveyard hating Oozes while pulling double duty as an evasive goad enabler

Also you probably noticed but you got an extra Null Rod

Hey, you're welcome. I like the changes and good job finalizing.

Unfortunately, a deck is never complete ;) There's always something you can do to improve, but that's a big reason that Magic is so fun. For instance now that you have added Lark + Guide you can improve their interactions with other cards. There's several creatures who added to the combo can be helpful. Depending on your playgroup some of these cards and infinite interactions could help you against certain decks.

Lark + Guide + sac outlet creates a dying loop within this loop you can add other creatures to it. Of course if you add an aristocrat then you win the game, but there's other interactions that are also good, not game ending. Solemn Simulacrum if added to the loop then you put all of your basic lands onto the battlefield tapped and draw the rest of your deck. Doomed Traveler makes infinite Spirits tokens. Pawn of Ulamog makes infinite Eldrazi Spawn tokens. These are just some of the interactions that you're already playing, but there's other creatures who when adding to the loop are just as powerful.

  • Plaguecrafter makes your opponents sac all their creatures/Planeswalkers and discard their entire hands. For you all Plaguecrafter is doing is sacing itself each time it's reanimated.
  • Reliquary Monk destroys all your opponents artifacts and enchantments.
  • Remorseful Cleric exiles all your opponents graveyards.

These cards are all good outside of the combos and that's important. For instance Plaguecrafter is a source of a sac and his ability is very good in multiplayer Commander. Reliquary Monk has a dies ability (put into a graveyard from play = dies before dies was a keyword in Magic), interaction with Teysa, triggering her letting you destroy any two of combination artifacts/enchantments. Remorseful Cleric is no mana cost sac to exile an entire opponent's graveyard which can be used at instant speed if Cleric is on the battlefield. That's a helpful thing to have against many decks in Commander.

Fiend Hunter is a good card with Lark because these two and a sac outlet also create a dying loop. This combo doesn't need Guide. Hunter can exile Lark so when Hunter is saced then Lark returns to the battlefield, saced, reanimating Hunter, creating the loop.

Altar of Dementia + Lark + Guide is a infinite combo to mill all your opponents libraries on your turn therefore when your opponents have a turn they die because they don't have a card to draw. Dementia is a nice sac outlet because it's a two drop, no mana cost to sac and it's ability can be helpful to self-mill which can result in creature fuel for Lark or Guide or other reanimation.

Thanks bushido_man96 and lifemtg.

Mayael the Anima was included as an homage to my original deck and I thought she might be a decent back up plan if Atla Palani, Nest Tender was shut down. However, I agree that her activation cost is probably too costly, and I haven't built the deck with enough 5+ power creatures to make her hit consistently.

Call of the Wild is an interesting card, but I think it runs into consistency issues without the addition of more top deck manipulation. Plus I've been noticing with some early testing that I don't need much more than Atla to get things going.

I'd love to add Sylvan Library into the deck, but alas, I only own one copy and that is already being put to use in my Lord Windgrace deck.

Evolutionary Leap and High Market are definitely solid suggestions that I'll have to consider for this deck. Right now I think I'll replace Mayael with one of Selfless Spirit , Riftsweeper , or Remorseful Cleric . They are all good early creatures with powerful utility abilities.

Defense of the Heart is something else that I am considering since I own a copy and it can go find the 2 raptors, or Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Archetype of Endurance .

I Get that your trying to Make A deck with a new But interesting and actually hyped commander, according to reddit, But It seems the deck is built for Gahiji and not Marisi. I just dont see any synergy cards with Marisi. Maybe it’s supposed to be extremely casual and that’s also fine, But it seems messy.

You have put in cards that Make sure People dont attack you, But if you replace Them with smaller creatures that Get damage through on turn four as you play your commander then your commander alone makes sure you are not A target AND that they Will attack elsewhere. This is how you utilise the 2nd ability. Remorseful Cleric Selfless Spirit are Great examples as they are cheap, carry utility and have flying.
