Soltari Visionary Discussion

DrukenReaps on Saskia Deckbuilding Directions?

1 month ago

I was actually just thinking about her the other night because I'm getting the Secret Lair that she will be in. I think the best route to make use of her is things that trigger on damage. Some of those legends are a good start but if you don't mind infect it would be great with her. Lifelink, double strike, and trample are all "nicer" keywords that people get less upset by. True Conviction is high on the CMC but potentially every bit as devastating as Triumph of the Hordes.

Some good cards with on damage triggers Charnelhoard Wurm, Stigma Lasher, Soltari Visionary, Phantom Nishoba, Order of Yawgmoth, and Hypnotic Specter. These triggers are on damage so with Saskia in play they go off twice.

Angel of Deliverance is a maybe. I don't like the cost or the hoop but the effect is strong...

Avenging Druid is interesting but maybe Hunting Cheetah is less painful? Depends on if you do any grave stuff.

Otherwise I like the Sunforger plan. A lot of combat tricks can be had here. Though Sunforger is usually only a piece of a deck and not the only thing going on in it.

Hey, good start and budget version.

If you want to be quicker than consider reducing the avg. CMC? It's currently too high at 3.6. Reducing the avg. CMC makes it so you can play cards faster. In the case here getting more creatures onto the battlefield before Marisi. Consider more one/two/three drops creatures? One drop mana dorks are good with Marisi because they make ramp to help to cast him faster and they can also be attackers with or without cards that give evasion.

Creatures who are just attackers and don't do anything else are less good then others that can attack while also doing something else. In Commander you want the creatures you play to give you more value then just being a creature who can attack. The manabase can be much faster since all the dual lands you're playing always ETB tapped.

Some budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lands

One drops

Two drops

Three drops

More creatures with evasion and effects that can improve combat/attacking are cards to consider because you need to do combat damage to a player to goad that player. More creatures with flying and creatures with shadow is evasion to consider adding. Drawing cards with creatures who do combat damage to a player can be helpful to stay ahead. Double strike is a good ability for an attacking creature.

Shadow is a unique creature ability that makes the creature unblockable because your opponents are not going to have any creatures with shadow. Spirit en-Dal has shadow, but the reason to play it is to repeatedly reveal it from your hand at your upkeep to give a target creature shadow until end of turn. For two mana it can give Marisi shadow making him unblockable.

The manabase can be improved because there's a lot of subpar lands which will always ETB tapped. Dual lands that can ETB untapped can speed up game play letting you cast spells faster. Command Tower is a staple land for multicolored decks. There's a lot of basic lands in the manabase therefore consider adding others lands that have good interaction with basic lands?

Good luck with your deck.

Some cards that I use in my Bruna deck that could have applications here in Uril:

Flickerform , Empyrial Armor and Sage's Reverie offer protection, buff and buff/card draw.

Soltari Visionary is a great, nearly 100% unblockable creature that acts as some additional removal.

Umbra Mystic gives all of your auras totem armor. This felt lackluster until I saw how much of my opponents' resources it could consume as they focused on trying to eliminate it and anything else enchanted.

Heliod's Pilgrim and Three Dreams ...why make do with just any old aura you happen to draw? Go get your best ones. I usually fetch Eldrazi Conscription but Bruna also can cheat it into play so the CMC isn't such of a concern.

Could use a little more removal. Either Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares and Winds of Rath as another boardwipe.

Solid list! Good ramp, and as about resilient as you could be in a Naya deck. If you really, really wanted more wrath protection there's Dauntless Escort , but that's probably overkill (and you'd have to cut a better hate bear-ish creature for it). Rootborn Defenses may be better though - and also tutorable with Sunforger. On the other hand, honestly, I wish I had another Heroic Intervention for Gahiji, but they're getting pretty pricey now...

I think you should absolutely find room for Soltari Visionary . Maybe also Soltari Champion - but definitely Visionary.

I'm not 100% sold on Sunny Elspeth - great card to be sure, but how often are you using that minus ability when it kills your commander? If you're just looking for more swarm in white, there's also God-Eternal Oketra , Geist-Honored Monk , Hero of Bladehold , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , or even Custodi Soulbinders !

I'm curious how Luminarch Ascension works out for you. I can "see" the ceiling for it - you lock everyone out with goads and are free to add counters, seems good. However, if you play it too early you become a huge target.

Sidar Kondo is some sick tech here.

Great list! Very well crafted.

I suggest Soltari Visionary for the enchantment problem

Very nice I am especially a fan of the lumbering Satyr. You forgot pretty much the best shadow creature though: Soltari Visionary , also consider Boldwyr Intimidator , Crescendo of War , Nature's Revolt , Hunter's Insight -- which cannot be countered if you cast it during your combat phase Wishmonger .

I'm digging the invincible and destroy all mashed together. Creates strong board control and allows you to swing uncontested.

Fist, I've noticed you're running 46 lands, which is quite a few. I think you could cut down to 38 very easily, especially if you cut a few of the larger CMC spells in favor of cheaper alternatives.

So what would I spend those 8 land slots on? Tutors and ramp.

Enlightened Tutor Open the Armory will both help you find Darksteel Plate or Worldslayer

Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map tutor you to your special lands. Tithe can help you with card advantage.

Serenity could be a hot include too for more control. Porphyry Nodes works in a similar vein for creatures and probably combos better with your deck. Planar Collapse is another cheap wiper that can clear the board for you.

Knight of the Holy Nimbus works surprisingly well here too.

I don't think you actually want All Is Dust for this deck! Your commander flipped is a white permanent, and sacrifice goes through indestructible! One of the lower cost mass destruction ( Porphyry Nodes / Planar Collapse ) could easily fit this slot if you didn't use it to replace some plains. Fiend Hunter is also an excellent choice, as it lets you reuse ETB effects by wiping the board, or gives you spot removal on an opponents problem creature.

Not a fan of Omen Machine here either. Pretty expensive for a stax type piece, would much rather see Aven Mindcensor for flash blowouts + beats or more wipes or Spirit of the Labyrinth to keep draw-hate in your list.

Emeria Shepherd Adarkar Valkyrie and Palisade Giant could all be lower CMC creatures to smooth over your early game. Soltari Visionary could give some extra control elements, while Samurai of the Pale Curtain could help against graveyard strategies. Dust Elemental lets you reset your ETB creatures or can be flashed in at EOT before yours to prepare for a board wipe. Even Serene Master could be good for early game to help you get more to mid game!
