Tallowisp Discussion

jamochawoke on What, Exactly, is Wrong with …

I think something people have forgotten to mention about card draw in white in this thread is that it has some pretty huge synergies with auras and card draw.

For example:

And there's tons of white aura support with graveyard recursion that stops aura's big downfall (2 for 1'ing a creature that's been enchanted with a Doomblade or something). So if you were running a white auras deck you wouldn't have any problems with filtering, card draw, or graveyard recursion. It actually plays more like a blue deck than anything else white has to offer. It's just been overshadowed by the bogles deck archetype for auras, due to its incredible strength and showing in competitive tournaments, which demands WU or UG as its colors. Basically, why bother with recursion when you can just pop auras on unblockable hexproof creatures and have a deck that can't be interacted with?

kpres on Splice Onto Arcane Tribal: Kykar, Wind's Fury EDH

Kudos for taking on the challenge of attempting to make use of the horribly awful Arcane cards from Kamigawa. In addition to using Arcane cards, you might get some benefit from using spirits that work with Arcane cards:


In that list, Earthshaker stands out as being really useful, since it won't nuke your spirits from Kykar. Tallowisp is also pretty cool, since it lets you search for auras.

What I've found works really well with Kykar is Swans of Bryn Argoll and Body of Knowledge , because having access to red gives you lots of ways to deal direct damage to them.

I'm not sure why Zirda is there. What is the activated ability you are trying to take advantage of? Splice into Arcane is not an activated ability, so it won't help with that.

I have a few cards in my deck Kykar Swiss Army Knife (Budget) that might help with Kykar and spirits, because there is a subtle spirit theme here. Check out the deck list and maybeboard for ideas.

Lol, I couldn't get Tallowisp to tier two :) I guess Reprobation is to easy to remove.

Are there really enough cats (even with changelling) for King of the Pride to be tier 3?

Thanks for the list!

Funkydiscogod I really like the Tallowisp + Oppressive Rays combo. I don't like the specific Ordeal of Nylea suggestion as it seems way too slow and easily disrupted, but think something like Daybreak Coronet could be ok.

In general, I think that this Celestial Kirin idea is way too fragile and needs a ton of synergy to be effective. I have been looking at arcane and spirit spells and like Horobi's Whisper , Nether Spirit , Peer Through Depths , and Ethereal Haze just as cards. I still don't think there's quite enough, but maybe Tallowisp , Oppressive Rays , and Pacifism could make it good.
