Strict Proctor Discussion

GrimlockVIII on Strict Proctor and the Hunted …

1 month ago

Okay, yo, it looks like Strict Proctor has a neat interaction with the cycle of Hunted Creatures from The Guilds of Ravnica Expansion, wherein he can cancel out the ETBs of giving your opponent creatures in exchange for summoning a creature that would otherwise be broken for its mana cost.

So, like, on turn 3, for instance, if you have Mr. Proctor, you can just casually summon Hunted Horror , a 7/7 with Trample for two mana, without any drawbacks.

The question is, is this neat interaction worth building a deck around? Or is it too janky and inconsistent?

Wow, someone actually commented on this deck. Thanks for the advice man. I few things I have to note.

There is a reason I am not including other 1 or 2 drops other than snakes. They would be countered by Chalice of the Void if I play it. I thought Prowling Serpopard may be redundant because I have Cavern of Souls that already give my snakes uncounterable. I used to have counterspells in this deck before I ended up sticking to the Chalice, perhaps I may go full on control?

While wierd in concept, this deck is mostly a Deadeye Navigator deck, but with snakes. I may remove Deadeye Navigator entirely if I come up with a new strategy, but right now Deadeye Navigator is the end game. I am not sure that the expensive snake lords mentioned is a better alternative, but I will consider it.The idea now is to use Deadeye Navigator with Mystic Snake , so I can counter any spell for 2. Not the greatest combo, but that's why its jank. The fact that Deadeye Navigator is the end-game is why most snakes are ETB creatures, as otherwise Deadeye Navigator 's only purpose would Mystic Snake . Snakes are good for landfall and ETB so far, so I thought an ETB based midrange deck would be perfect. I am scared of cards like Strict Proctor

The only ''snake'' tribal is this deck is mostly just Cavern of Souls with Chalice of the Void . The three tibal snake cards are not really lords and are kind of expensive mana value wise. Perhaps I remove Deadeye Navigator and try a different endgame plan? Snakes don't have much going for them for lords, so I don't think aggro is much of an alternative.

Sakura-Tribe Elder , may not be the best creature, but he is one of the best modern ramp spells, working well with Lotus Cobra . Also, possibly Coiling Oracle , but I wouldn't count on it. If anything, Tireless Tracker does sound snazzy. Investigate deck???????

Lol, no love for Guardian Gladewalker . Honestly, its not great. Its just a two drop snake with an ETB effect that I could eventually spam with Deadeye Navigator . It may also allow buff up my fliers to do more damage, while serving as a block body. Maybe I'll replace it with Tireless Tracker ...

Hey! Not sure if you've been updating this deck, but Stryxhaven brought some goodies! Pilgrim of the Ages Pillardrop Rescuer and Strict Proctor all gel with what your deck is aiming to do!

DragonOfTheWest, thanks! I try to balance the cards and think about the actual space on the card, so that's a very nice complement! I think your Quasimodo card would see Standard play, kudos!

Emrakul Incarnate ( There's no 40 symbol on TappedOut)

Legendary Creature - Eldrazi

Split Second

When Emrakul Incarnate enters the battlefield, pay 20 life. If you can't you lose the game.

Flying, Trample, Shroud, Annihilator 20

You control all players during your turns.


This card is breakable with Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow , Keen Duelist , and several similar effects. Strict Proctor / Torpor Orb -effects and any form of reanimation also works well to break it, especially in legacy.

Obviously, this would never see print, but I wanted to make a card that resembled the mind-breaking magnificence of Emrakul, as the other cards just represent manifestations, because the Eldrazi Titans are so much greater than planes and just everything!

I'd like to see a 0/1 card that would see standard/pioneer play in an aggro deck, but would be pretty lousy in any other context, thanks!

Stonebinder's Familiar , Semester's End and Strict Proctor are all new cards from strixhaven that I would think would fit nicely in your deck and I believe Warhorn Blast and Cosmic Intervention would be a decent foretell card to include. Also, keep in mind that adventure also triggers Ranars ability, so Fae of Wishes would also be a decent card to put in.

The only awkward part about adding the Strict Proctor is that you still have temples, and it counters the scrying, it does allow the trioms to enter in untapped :). One of the big things I worked with a friend of mine on with this deck during spoiler season is to add Venerable Warsinger along side the Proctor. I also liked you using Immersturm Predator , it made Hofri Ghostforge so much better! Here is what I put together for you, as usual, all are suggestions, feel free to take or leave whatever and thank you for your collaboration.

Update, main addition being +2 Strict Proctor

Vanishing Verse could be worth testing (main deck?) too...

Why not Hushbringer instead of Strict Proctor ?

Edit. Oh stupid me, would prevent a lot of white control with their Banishing Light s.
