Skyclave Apparition

Creature — Kor Spirit

When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, exile up to one target nonland, nontoken permanent you don't control with converted mana cost/mana value 4 or less.

When CARDNAME leaves the battlefield, the exiled card's owner creates an X/X blue Illusion creature token, where X is the mana value of the exiled card.

I feel like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord has more vampire synergy than Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord.

Removal stapled onto a creature like Skyclave Apparition seems strong here even if it isn't a vampire, because unlike removal spells it triggers Welcoming Vampire.

I feel like Vampire of the Dire Moon is a more relevant one drop creature for vampires than Skymarcher Aspirant. Being a 10 turn instead of 20 turn clock is an obvious downside, but the life total swing of 2 is the same, lifegain helps you stabilize, and it has deathtouch to trade with a bigger creature.

I prefer Nebelgast Herald over Shacklegeist. I run 4 Neblegast and 2 Shacklegeist.

Pro's are that it can be cast at flash speed and that it doesn't require you to tap anything (and reduce your number of blockers) in order to activate it.

Con's are that it's more expensive to cast and you need to be able to cast spirits to activate it. That being said, if you're not casting spirits you're probably in trouble anyway.

The pro's of Shacklegeist are that it's cheaper, it has a higher toughness and its ability is repeatable when you're empty handed (or devoid of spirits).

The con's are that it only blocks fliers and that you have to tap out two spirits to activate it (reducing your ability to block).

I also like your inclusion of Path to Exile. I'm still for it as a hard removal spell (despite popular opinion), I only use 3 in the side though as I also have the 4 Skyclave Apparition in the main.

SufferFromEDHD - Yeah, I might have read your statement about Skyclave Apparition a bit too quickly. I included it because I have copy, and still like it as temporary "removal", even if I can't necessarily abuse it like other cards in deck.

Galepowder Mage is definitely good for a strategy like this. I don't like that it's a combat trigger though, since this deck will more often than not be on the defensive and not getting into the thick of combat proactively.

This deck is still very much conceptual. The more I play test it the less sure I am that this is something I'd want to build and play in paper. I might print out proxy copies to test with friends next time I sit down to play.

I think you misunderstood me. Skyclave Apparition is a flavor miss in this. Galepowder Mage would be better for your blink strategy. Or if you are feeling spicy Debt of Loyalty.

Thank you for all of your suggestions today SufferFromEDHD. Lol I originally had Rootborn Defenses in deck and swapped it for Teferi's Protection, but I think I'll likely swap them around again.

Skyclave Apparition is a cool one. I used to run it in the last iteration of my Alesha deck, Awkward Eye Contact with Death (retired), before I deconstructed it to use the mana base and removal for my Isshin deck.

One last round of suggestions haha

Galepowder Mage is the original Restoration Angel. Not as easy to abuse but it still has its place in the blink strategy. Skyclave Apparition is an amazing card and even makes an illusion token! but can't be abused and you can't make use of it.

Rootborn Defenses over Teferi's Protection. I know TP is a superior card but in this deck we want Preston triggers and phasing doesn't work. Indestructible is a close second and Populate is pure value.

wallisface on Yorions gone - what cards …

So, this is my current thinking for this list - basically moving Thalia to the sideboard, and trimming some cards i’d rather not see multiples of. Also ditching Ephemerate:

Land (23)

Creature (31)

Artifact (6)

Sideboard (15)

Cool deck.

Let me know how Anointed Peacekeeper is because I am thinking about removing my Skyclave Apparition for Anointed Peacekeeper because my Skyclave Apparitions cannot remove the murktides and rhinos in my meta.
