I really like Flickerform, Gift of Immortality, Ephemerate, and Conjurer's Closet with Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves. Great ways of protecting him and getting reuse out of his enter the battlefield (ETB) ability!

I also really like Sword of the Paruns. Tolsimir usually wants you to play lots of wolves so that you can use his ability. You can use Sword of the Paruns to boost your wolves on defense when they ETB and fight!


I would recommend maybe replacing Gods Willing, Blessed Breath, Realms Uncharted, Unexpectedly Absent, Inspire Awe, & Stand Firm with Make a Stand, Unbreakable Formation, Rootborn Defenses, Brave the Elements, Swords to Plowshares, & Path to Exile

Seek the Horizon could be upgraded to Explosive Vegetation

Heraldic Banner fits the deck really well! Some other good cards in that vein would be Marshal's Anthem, Leonin Sun Standard, Adaptive Automaton, Spear of Heliod, or Vanquisher's Banner. You could replace Shriekhorn, Mindcrank, Conjurer's Bauble, Ghoulcaller's Bell, & Grindclock with the recommendations.

Thank you very much for your detailed answers. I did a couple of test games with your deck and your Teshar-deck has won all my respect. Congratulations on this fantastic deck building! I quickly realized how strong Shimmer Myr, Emergence Zone, Shriekhorn, etc. are, which I was initially skeptical about. And indeed: Verge Rangers would be too slow on the deck. Too bad that Fiend Hunter has toughness 3. Creatures exiling permanently would be chic. One question remains: I saw the Claws of Gix card in other deck lists. What do you think of the card? I think, any-permanent-sacoutlet sounds pretty cool.

Beautiful deck. I have my own Teshar deck. A lot is similar, but I saw some interesting differences with you. I have the following questions about your deck building:

  1. Why do you play Path to Exile instead of Swords to Plowshares? Do you want to keep the option open to ramp yourself or shuffle your library?

  2. What is your experience with the Shimmer Myr and Emergence Zone cards? Do you really often use the flash effect?

  3. I play Verge Rangers in my Teshardeck. I am fascinated by how this card synergizes with "eggs", Sensei's Divining Top, Millcards, Fetchlands, tutors, etc. The key effect of the card is "You may look at the top card of your library any time". What do you think of the card? Have you already tested the card?

  4. Furthermore I play Heliod, Sun-Crowned in my Teshardeck. The card is a historic spell and Heliod, Sun-Crowned goes infinite with Walking Ballista. Otherwise, the card does little. I'm not sure if Heliod, Sun-Crowned is good enough. What do you think?

  5. What is your experience with the Shriekhorn, Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell? Sure, the effects are good. But are the effects really worth filling three card slots? I will try out the three cards myself and am curious to see how they will works.

  6. I have seen the Banisher Priest card in several deck lists, but I have never tried it myself. Is the card that good? And if so why?

I would be happy if you would give me answers to my questions.

TriusMalarky on Gifts Tron?

I was thinking a sort of Reanimator style deck. Using Tron lands as a backup to cheat our big guys into play, and Thirst for Knowledge and Shriekhorn or something to fill our yard. Then we can use Trash and Footsteps as solid 3-mana reanimation to get a lot of value.

to help mill why not play 4 Shriekhorn?

hey, thanks for the suggestions. Shriekhorn is definitely a faster mill spell than Minister of Inquiries, but I see a problem that it isn't a creature, which makes all of my mill spells less likely to make a turn 2 cauldron. I could see offsetting that by replacing Witch's Oven with another creature, but I think there's another way to build this deck.

The way I would look at the mill package for this deck is as a crabvine deck. It has no dredge cards because they don't further your strategy, and you cant utilize them for your game-plan if you just naturally draw them. Instead the deck wants cheap creatures that let you get out a vengevine ass early as turn 2. Similarly, we want a 1 mana mill spell that will also decrease the cost of a cauldron. having said that I'm looking at running Merfolk Secretkeeper because it fills a these slots better than both Shriekhorn and Minister of Inquiries in my opinion.

As for witch's oven, I would agree that it is probably too cute, but I think I would rather replace it with Gilded Goose, which is a creature, makes turn 2 emry possible, and it can help slow down the game.

I think that this deck is probably too awkward to build right, but there are a decent number of self mill options now, so it probably just comes down to testing to find the right one.

Shriekhorn is a better mill spell than Minister of Inquiries, as it can mill 4 by turn 2, mills the same amount, and discounts Emry. I also suggest playing 4 Stinkweed Imp instead of Witch's Oven; dredging 5 on turn 2 makes the possibility of a turn 2 Cauldron far more realistic.

I would lessen the number of Gaea's Blessing to one, Mausoleum Secrets to two, and Murderous Cut to two or three. From there you can add more creatures such as Prized Amalgam , maybe a Syr Konrad, the Grim as honorary Liliana's Indignation s, and possibly Gurmag Angler to beat into the opponent. Any way to increase your creature count to increase the power of your Indignations. Cycling creatures could prove worthwhile for both finding Indignation and increasing its power such as Windcaller Aven and Street Wraith . Lastly more mill rocks could prove worthwhile as it will make Creeping Chill and Narcomoeba better, things like Shriekhorn
