Talisman of Impulse Discussion

Hey, nice upgrades of the Tutors and Smothering :)

What the precon needs is to cut a lot of the fat. The avg. CMC of the precon is 3.9 which is too high. You have reduced that number to 3.7, but that's still too high. Instead of adding lots of other high mana cost cards, 4 CMC or higher, cut some of what's already here for more low mana cost ramp. More ramp is good with Ghired and the precon lacks early game ramp:

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Blossoming Sands
  • Kazandu Refuge
  • Desolation Twin
  • Emmara Tandris
  • Soul of Zendikar
  • Heart-Piercer Manticore
  • Scaretiller

Other low mana cost cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Valor
  • Soul Foundry
  • Growing Ranks
  • Doomed Artisan
  • Full Flowering

Good luck with your deck.

A couple things:

1) minus 30 points for having monocolor cards in your deck. (joking, of course)

2) are you sure about all of your rocks costing 3 mana? You should definitely be running Sol Ring and should probably be running the signets (Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet, and Gruul Signet) and the talismans (Talisman of Unity, Talisman of Conviction, and Talisman of Impulse).

3) if rocks aren't your style, consider Rampant Growth, Search for Tomorrow, and Nature's Lore and Farseek (they can tutor up shocklands).

4) while you have plentiful board wipes, some removal for noncreature permanents may not go amiss. Good ol' Naturalize, Disenchant, Nature's Chant, Return to Nature, Hull Breach, Artifact Mutation, Aura Mutation, are all pretty solid selections, but you should def look into multicolor creatures that can do the same thing.

5) some sac outlets would be awesome for this deck!!

Okay, so I am quite fond of brews that are delectation to pilot, but I am beholden to recommend some changes.

Now, Panharmonicon is a fantastic card, but there are only eleven ways to trigger the thing in this deck. Two of those are Draining Whelk and Grave Sifter, so, whilst they may have their moments, they seem lacking for doubling _ETB_s. This is my same opinion for Conjurer's Closet; what value is blinking something? Flameshadow Conjuring is in the same boat. These all become useless far too quickly, save for maybe Risen Reef shenanigans. Bramble Sovereign somewhat falls under the same folly, but I don't believe it to be as narrow.

Another thing to consider is the mana costs of cards. The majority of your curve is at three, which is probably when you would want to cast your commander. Ramp at two mana is far more ideal, as athwart to Keyrunes and Cluestones. I'd cut Temur Banner, Harrow, Gruul Keyrune for Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Impulse, and Rampant Growth. Wayfarer's Bauble is also of note. Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, and Elvish Mystic each can draw cards off of some of your effects late-game whilst being incredibly effective early.

Pillar of Origins is a fine card, but it only produces mana for elemental, being twenty cards in your deck and the commander. This leaves seven lands with activated abilities and forty-two nonland, non-elemental cards that cannot be used with the Pillar. I would just use Talisman of Creativity.

Seeing as that you have ramp in the command zone, doubling down on card draw seems important. Guardian Project, Beast Whisperer, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Primordial Sage, and Vanquisher's Banner can draw off of each creature. Kindred Discovery is an especially potent one. Shamanic Revelation and Collective Unconscious each can refill the hand well, but Tishana, Voice of Thunder may just be the best form of this effect.

I would perhaps include more elementals and/or more creature tutors. Perhaps specific creatures for situations, such as Collector Ouphe and Reclamation Sage.

If budget so allows, Thassa, God of the Sea, Rhystic Study, Sylvan Library, and Cyclonic Rift are as good as they are played.

Specific to your deck, Vivien, Champion of the Wilds just seems lovely.

Seeing the decklist, it seems to have a sparse amount of interaction. Reality Shift, Incubation / Incongruity, Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Lignify, Pongify, and Rapid Hybridization are some to consider. Kenrith's Transformation even replaces itself.

I run Decimate in every deck I can. It is absolutely amazing and has literally never been lacking.

Some counter magic is always great; Supreme Will, Counterspell, and Forbid are some favourites of mine.

That shall be all from me!

I do have a couple of tribal decks along the same route as this if you so wish to peer upon them: Eladamri, Leader of Skyshroud The River Anew

Good luck and happy casting.

DemonDragonJ on Who Would Be Quoted on ...

3 weeks ago

When WotC printed enemy-colored talismans in Modern Horizons, those cards had quotes from planeswalkers whose color identities matched the colors of mana that those talismans could produce.

Therefore, I wonder who would be quoted on the allied-colored talismans, if they were to be reprinted, so I wish to start a thread to ask about that.

Talisman of Dominance would most likely have a quote from Tezzeret, but Ashiok is also a possibility, as well.

Domri is the most logical planeswalker to be quoted on Talisman of Impulse, but Xenagos is another candidate, as well.

Tibalt is definitely the best match for Talisman of Indulgence.

Dovin is the perfect choice for Talisman of Progress.

Talisman of Unity would almost certainly have a quote from Ajani, since he focuses on unity and community.

What does everyone else say about this subject? Who would be quoted on the allied-colored talismans?

Dolphin_Jesus - Love the name

I play Xenagos but not with an MLD package. You have a low land count and a relatively high AVG cmc. If you're going to be wiping landbases and opponents wiping your creatures, you will not be left in an advantageous position. Why not add more artifact ramp such as Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Talisman of Impulse, and The Great Henge? These will ramp you and will help you break parity.

Alternatively, you can run Collector Ouphe instead to shut down opposing artifacts as blue mages (as well as white, red and black players) will almost always be using artifacts to ramp and the small anti-synergy is worth it IMO should you choose to go that route. City of Solitude might be worth considering over or in addition to Price of Glory.

If you're still worried about blue, Veil of Summer acts as a cheap cantrip and anti-blue/black card. You're already running Pyroblast so specific color hate doesn't seem to be an issue for you.

You are trying to make deals but in my meta, if you play MLD, people will target you. There's nothing wrong with MLD, but most people don't like losing their lands so I'm curious how/if you have actually been able to politic your way out of a situation, unless the combo player is gonna win. '

Survival of the Fittest/Fauna Shaman might be worth considering with all your creatures. Not to mention the synergy with Anger and Eternal Witness. A Genesis might be worth considering should you go that route.

My honest opinion is that this deck lacks enough card draw, lands and meaningful ramp to be able to compete in a semi-competitive meta (no idea what your meta is like, but this wouldn't hold up in mine). You only run 6 pieces of ramp that allow you to get Xenagos out earlier.

Return of the Wildspeaker > Soul's Majesty - You don't want them to use removal in response to majesty, but rather, use wildspeaker in response to removal.

Rishkar's Expertise - Similar to above but with added benefit of not losing tempo

Greater Good - The most powerful card in a Xenagos deck. If you listen to anything I say, this is it.

Lifeblood Hydra - Even if it dies, you gain value. Pair it with another card you should add, Berserk (which goes exceedingly well with Malignus)

Life's Legacy/Momentous Fall - Yes, additional cost to cast sucks, but its very helpful to draw and it helps get around spot removal.

Beast Within - Good old instant speed permanent removal

Decimate - 4 for 1, amazing value

Voracious Hydra - Beater and removal in one

Dosan the Falling Leaf - Anti blue, anti spot removal if blue is a thorn in your side

Bolt Bend - Redirect removal, counter counterspells, redirect some draw as well as some extra turns. Very useful for 1

Also a couple of suggestions, Talisman of Impulse is better than Gruul Signet most times because you can tap it for mana the turn you drop it.

Guttural Response while yes it is anti-blue, having a straight up counter of your own to answer counter magic is fantastic and blue players do not expect it from the Gruul player. Further you can force them to double down and burn off another counter spell to keep down the play you're going for.

I'm surprised to see no Craterhoof Behemoth or Blightsteel Colossus granted they can be wins more cards but if they go unanswered you often win on the spot.

I'd also suggest swapping in a Windswept Heath for the Temple of Abandon but that's mainly my bias against enter into play tapped lands.

Further this sort of deck begs for Selvala's Stampede which most people will always respond with "Free" so you just wait to cast it until you've got plenty of permanents in hand, which can allow you to build a massive board state.
