Sorin, Solemn Visitor Discussion

dichia on Orzhov spirit tokens

hungry000,I understand that Long-Forgotten Gohei might not be the best card choice here. Probably Honor of the Pure is better even if I'm running spirits and Devouring Greed. I'm not opposed to change it. The reason why I'm not including Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Bitterblossom, etc... is that my purpose is not to make a really competitive deck. Let's say that my aim is to build a deck around a concept in the best way possible and in this case the concept was to make a different version of the competitive BW Tokens decks that only runs spirit tokens to take advantage of Devouring Greed.

I don't know if I explained myself well or if it even make sense, but that's the reason I'm not putting Sorin in the list.

Looks a lot better, but I'd play planeswalkers like Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Long-Forgotten Gohei. Tokens really benefits from having value-generating cards since making value is the area they excel in, and your deck stands to gain a lot more from having planeswalkers (which serve as win conditions in their own right) over a card that's effectively a worse Honor of the Pure that only discounts a couple cards in the entire deck.

If you're looking for lifelink and buffs, Sorin, Solemn Visitor plays well in decks with a lot of tokens, especially fliers.

I am a big fan of Orzhov Stax and like this spicy version for Elenda, the Dusk Rose. What do you think about Smokestack or Sorin, Solemn Visitor for the emblem?

Femme_Fatale on Synonyms/Nicknames System for Deckbuilding and ...

2 months ago

Introducing the synonyms/nicknames system to alleviate all those "wtf was that one land of that one cycle named?" problems that plague you.

This system is simple. It is designed to redirect terms that you typed out that match a synonym/nickname of a card, to that card name. This lets you never have to remember the name "Seachrome Coast" and can instead just type out "WU Fastland" (as an example). Note that this only works in text edit entries on deck lists and inventory, not the live edit or the card search forms.

There is a lot of other things that are utilised here as well.

  • Godzilla Names
  • Non-American Spellings
  • Common Nicknames
  • Common Misspellings
  • Redirections of Misspelled Submissions
  • Each side of a split card as a synonym (unless they already exist as a card).

Not needing to know the name of each card in a land/artifact cycle is a big boon, but you still need to know the nickname of that cycle and the syntax. For lands/mana rocks/the swords of X and Y at the present moment it is always "XY Nickname" or "YX Nickname". Examples:

  • WU Fastland
  • GR BFZ
  • GW ABUR Dual Land
  • BW Fetch

For 2 colour lands, it is always the two colour letters, followed by the nickname, and then followed by the option to have the world land either connected to the nickname or not. (these are all viable options for example: "WU Fast", "UW Fastland", "UW Fast Land".) For 3 colour lands, it is only the primary order of colour letters you see on cards, or the Alara/Khans name. (WUB Lair, Mardu Triome as examples.) Swords and other artifact cycles follow the same setup (though swords can also be "Sword of GB" or "Sword of G and B"), and mono colour land cycles use the same setup just with only one letter. Note that none of these are plural, so don't put that s in. Colourless cards that are a part of a cycle use C/Colorless/Colourless.

Some of these cycles don't have well defined names yet (like BBD) and some of these cycles have had too many names that people constantly fight over so there was no point in bothering to put them all in and instead I just used the TLA (specifically BFZ).

Goals:

The primary purpose of this is to make the ability to tag cards and edit decks/inventory far more robust than what it has been. Tappedout doesn't presently have a spellchecker, and to be fair most sites don't. It's not an easy feature to implement. So with this synonyms/nicknames feature, we can alleviate some of those aggravations of misspellings or different ways to spell a word by making them valid targets and redirecting them to the right card name. Another benefit of this is the ability to give cards shorthands or nicknames when the community largely doesn't remember the actual name of a card, just their shorthand. We have all been hit with "wtf is that land's name again?" when we know for a fact that it's just "the blue and white shadows over innistrad reveal land". This saves the step of having to open up a search engine to figure out the card name, and in general speeds up and makes the process of building decks and inventory, a lot more enjoyable.


Cycles that currently have nicknames: Show

A lot of the cycle synonyms are meant to intuitive and robust so that you won't even have to think about knowing what the exact written synonym actually is and still be able to get it right on the first try, though it will take time to reach a point in which this is 100% true. As an example of scope, each recognized nickname for a cycle creates 6 entries for each given card in that cycle. So the AKH lands have 30 entries for each card in that cycle, resulting in a total of 150 entries. The Triomes have the same amount, but if I were to add each individual string combination of the colour letters (WUB, BUW, WBU etc) then that count would increase by 45 for each entry, resulting 75 entries for each one, totalling at 375 entries for the whole cycle.


Nicknames will usually be things like "Snappy", "Bolt", "Path", "Bob", "FoW", etc. They are to be commonly used by the larger community as a whole, not what your FNM/play group exclusively uses (though this isn't a hard set in stone as I'm not omniscient).

Here's a list of nicknames that I have. Show

I have about 200+ cards of non-American spellings added as synonyms in this site, however I'm certain there's like, 5x that much I've missed. If you notice a non-american spelling I do not have in, let me know.

Here's a list of things that is in the works to do. Show

Limitations:

A card can have any number of synonyms/nicknames. But only one synonym/nickname can be tied to a card. So if a new card/land cycle gets printed that has covers a misspelling (like an UNcard might) or has that nickname as it's actual card name, those synonyms will get removed (as an example, Snapcaster Mage cannot have Snap as a nickname). We are also looking to limit the amount of times a synonym has to get removed so nicknames of cards during their presence in the standard formats are not likely to be put in, as they become forgotten or even re-used when they rotate out. These are also done manually so sometimes a change might just take a while to do if it encompasses a large number of cards or a large number of synonyms.. We also won't be going through alternate language as possible synonyms because WotC doesn't nearly double check duplicate card names for foreign languages as well as they do for English cards.

This is not something on the card submission form, so it is not available to edit for any user.

If you know of something missing like common misspellings or common non-American spellings that will be needed, or cycle syntaxes that you tried to use but didn't work, post them here and I'll review them for possible inclusion in the future.

EDIT: Before you ask for a nickname etc to be added:

  1. Check if it exists first by trying it out.
  2. Check if the larger community recognizes it, this is done by going around discords, lgs' and other forums about that nickname.
  3. Check if it has any nsfw, discriminatory or derogatory terminology, we straight up will not allow these.

This isn't a system for your pet nickname that your local playgroup uses. This is a system that can utilize nicknames that naturally grew organically out of continued use from the larger mtg community as a whole. This isn't a "which nicknames do you think this system could use" but rather "which nicknames that are used across the world that we have missed".

Hello! I have some suggestions. Boost: Metallic Mimic and/or Adaptive Automaton. Token generators: Legion's Landing  Flip, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sorin, Solemn Visitor. Creatures: Taurean Mauler, Vona, Butcher of Magan. "Plan 'B'" (works with life-gaining): Aetherflux Reservoir (in this case True Conviction would be a nice addition too). Tribal artifact: Blade of the Bloodchief. Card advantage/draw/tutor: Sensei's Divining Top, Skullclamp, Castle Locthwain, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor. Good luck in brewing!

Why only 1xsorin?

Sorin Markov

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Sorin, Vampire Lord

Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.

I'd lose one to three Swamp s This is a Mono-Black deck. Mono decks only need 16-18 of their Primary Mana source, this frees up room for either more Spells, Creatures, or Planeswalkers.

Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey  Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.

Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.
