Seraph of the Scales Discussion

TheVectornaut on A sweet ass B/W deck

3 months ago

Hero of Precinct One and Tome of the Guildpact are some decent cards that care about multicolored without being so themselves. Orzhov picks could be Pillar of the Paruns , Beckon Apparition , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Nightsky Mimic , Kaya's Guile , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Karlov of the Ghost Council , Resolute Rider , Seraph of the Scales , or Vizkopa Guildmage . I tried to pick card suggestions that fit in with either the multicolored or the lifegain plans. Popular inclusions in more tempo or aggro focused Mimic/Divinity builds include Castigate , Orzhov Charm , Mourning Thrull , Cartel Aristocrat , Sin Collector , and Gift of Orzhova . Combine the two and you might get some value out of a shell of Ajani's Pridemate , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Light of Promise , Wall of Limbs , and Archangel of Thune .

Anyway, now that I've probably named every black and white card ever printed, do let me know if you have questions. Good luck!

Everyone's deck will vary depending on their own financial situation but you are welcome.

I would swap out Soul's Attendant for Deathgreeter.

If you can afford them at some point Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and Expedition Map.

Some mana rocks to consider Arcane Signet, Sol Ring, Orzhov Signet and Talisman of Hierarchy.

Nyx Lotus

Your creature base can be improved. As a rule of thumb for creatures generating tokens creatures with a CMC of 1-2 create one token and creatures with a CMC of 2-4 create 2 tokens.

Myr Sire, Carrier Thrall, Discordant Piper, Doomed Traveler and Garrison Cat to name a few.

The two creatures with a 4 CMC that create tokens are Seraph of the Scales and Mausoleum Guard.

A Planeswalker that is just made for a deck like this is Liliana, Dreadhorde General.

A couple Archangel of Thune wouldn't hurt. And/Or Resplendent Angel. Personally, I think either would do you more good than Seraph of the Scales.

Playtest suggestions:

-1 Teysa, -1 ayara, -4 gutterbones, -1 corpse knight, -1 woe strider, -1 gray merchant, -1 nightmare shepherd

+4 Cauldron Familiar, +4 Witch's Oven, +2 Seraph of the Scales

Reasoning: Having 4 counts of any legendary creature in a deck can get you into trouble, if you can avoid it and still keep the deck running well, do it. I think you'll also be surprised at how fast the lifegain and damage add up from cat/oven when you have either cruel celebrant/corpse knight in play.

Example: Opponent attacks

     1) block with cat preventing damage

     2) sac cat with oven in response (makes food)

     3) cat dying triggers celebrant (+1 life, -1 opponents life)

     4) replay cat using created food (+1 life, -1 opponents life)

     6) corpse knight triggers from cat re-entry (-1 opponents life)

You have now blocked all damage, gained two life, did 3 damage to your opponent, spent zero mana, and all this happened during their attack phase.

The cat also synergizes very well with teysa, whereas gutterbones wouldn't have that extra trigger. It's worth a shot to playtest this stuff at the very least.

The seraphs of the scale would do amazing things both for death triggers (celebrant, teysa) and would leave you with a board presence even after a board wipe (2 flyers at that).

Other cards to think about:

-Liliana, Dreadhorde General (excellent synergies with most of your deck, her "both players sac 2" ability would do a LOT in your deck, including gaining you life, doing damage to opponent, and getting additional draw triggers from teysa)

-Command the Dreadhorde (just don't kill yourself! Not sure if your deck has enough lifegain to support this, but it might)

-Basilica Bell-Haunt (does wonders on its own, but amazing with nightmare shepherd and the additional devotion for gray merchant)

Hope this helps in some way!

Seraph of the Scales seems like a good addition. I have thought about that one or Elenda, the Dusk Rose before. I have won games with Debt to the Deathless before, but I could see cutting it for something else. It may just be a "win more" card, and Seraph is more on theme.

Haha I see what you mean about Generous Gift not matching the aesthetic, but it can remove anything. In my Meta I really need all the removal I can get, since some decks will combo off pretty early if no one removes an important enchantment or something quickly. This deck takes a little bit of set up before it starts going off and I want to make sure I can get there.

Thank you for the input! Good suggestion!

Personally I like Knight of Sorrows and Seraph of the Scales . As for what to take out.... Hmm personally I'd drop Debt to the Deathless because I don't love how high a Mana cost it has and Generous Gift ... That one is a decent card but it doesn't match the aesthetic of the rest of the deck which bothers me lol also you have a decent amount of removal so I don't think you need one that gives your opponent something.
