Tithe Discussion

I like that you try to sneak in doublestrike with non-artifacts and that you are running very few reactive spells to focus on voltron. However, the only reactive spell I really recommend is Deflecting Swat . It’s free when you have a commander out and it is almost guaranteed to save you in a pinch. You can always redirect a spell or ability to Kediss if necessary. I started running it recently in my Kaalia deck and it’s extremely useful.

I recommend dropping the triome and two snow dual lands and replace them with Fiery Islet and Sunbaked Canyon since the former enter tapped, and plus you could always use more card draw. Forbidden Orchard would work well in this deck too, since the spirit token would easily be blocked.

The cards you are running for draw are expensive mana-wise. I would drop Zedruu for Brainstorm , he’s too expensive and seems out of place. Ponder and Rhystic Study are good options too. Also Gitaxian Probe for free draw.

The only land I recommend which enters play tapped is Hall of the Bandit Lord , for Ishai.

You are running relatively few one-drops. The tutors and mana ramp artifacts will help ensure your first turn isn’t wasted. Your removal is expensive too and you run several board wipes. Instead you could run Swords to Plowshares or Council's Judgment . Also you could use more artifact or enchantment removal like Wear / Tear . I would try to bring down your average CMC overall.

Another option is Land Tax or Tithe to help ensure you have enough lands.

Also, I know you said you didn’t want to run any Swords, and that’s totally valid, but I would recommend only running Sword of Feast and Famine , since it’s arguably the best sword, regardless of color protection. It doubles your mana after every attack, which is always good. Plus the discard effect would affect every opponent with Kediss.

Also, you may want to run Cavern of Souls , just for Ishai, depending on your meta.

Hope you find my suggestions useful! :)

Personally, I prefer run Vindicate instead of Mortify . Sorcery speed is a fine price to pay for a three-drop that can kill literally anything. You never know when you might need to take out a Coffers or a Cradle.

I'd also recommend Thundermaw Hellkite and Subjugator Angel as ambush cards to kill someone with blockers out of the blue, as well as Angel of Despair for better spot removal (same reason as Vindicate).

Also, if you're running Sunforger , I'd go with Tithe if you can afford it and a Mistveil Plains to give the other players a hard time. SOmething to look into for that Sunforger package, especially if you go that route, would be Rakdos Charm for repeatable grave hate and Bathe in Light as a similar ambush card to Thundermaw and Subjugator.

Nice deck, though. =3

If you're going the Sunforger route, I'd recommend Tithe and Mistveil Plains . You might also want a redirect and fork effect for the package. I'd also recommend Rakdos Charm , if only for the repeatable grave hate that setup would provide.

Speaking of grave hate, you'd definitely want to slot in that Bojuka in your Maybeboard. Also speaking of the Maybeboard, Phyrexian Reclamation is a wonderful card for abusing ETBs and Rakdos the Defiler or Master of Cruelties when combined with a sac outlet. Food for thought. =3

My Queen Marchesa deck, For da Kween!, should give you some ideas for the Sunforger package.

I'mma also leave my Kaalia deck, Hardcore Heavenly Inferno here for ya in case it gives you some ideas.

Happy gaming! :)

Hey Profet93, I am in fact the same guy with the Tinybones deck.

Thanks for your suggestions, I will take your advice and swap out Tithe for Land Tax , and Exotic Orchard for Forbidden Orchard , as soon as I obtain copies of them. I like Tithe because I can cast it on the opponent’s turn for an immediate payoff, but Land Tax is reusable, and I get a better payoff when it triggers. I had been hesitant to run Forbidden over Exotic Orchard, since my meta is creature-heavy, and my opponent can take advantage of the token. But I’m going to try running it and see what happens.

I’m also going to listen to you and XinZhao and go with Deflecting Swat once and for all. Swat has so many pros and I’m running enough removal to justify not running Deadly Rollick .

Are you the same guy with the Tiny bones deck? Regardless, +1

Thoughts on swapping Tithe with Land Tax or is there something I'm missing? I read part of the above discussion for Deflecting Swat and absolutely believe Deadly Rol should be swapped with it. WAY too much utility to ignore counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal, targetted draw, targetted extra turns, etc.... Given your entire deck is based on your commander and you are playing the colors for best permanent removal, it would be in your best interest.

Thoughts on swapping Exotic Orchard for Forbidden Orchard ? The token doesn't fly, "politics" and actually gives you a guaranteed color, although I suppose that's meta dependent.

Omniscience_is_life and are those percentages of mono white decks? Or all possible decks running white? Because nobody who's allowed to play Read the Bones will consider a Martyr's Cry for their card draw. It's a lot easier to play with statistics than it is to play magic.

I did explain how I thought white is the underdog, the colour that needs to work a little harder for the same results, because the color is better suited for 1v1, and low played % can mean several things. Not only that the card is bad, it could also mean people don't want to work harder. It could mean the cards are less available, or unknown.

Plus, white is uniquely equipped to make sure it's opponents have more lands in play, with Path to Exile , Winds of Abandon , Karoo , Guildless Commons , Oath of Lieges etc.

King_marchesa I'm afraid Tithe is a reserved list card, yes. Gift of Estates is close though.

But if you're advocating a white Harmonize and Cultivate , do you really want to play white? Or do you actually want to play Simic, without the image of evil and overpoweredness that has accompanied these colors recently? Because if you don't want to play equipment (which has gotten a massive power boost with Commander Legends and even broke onto cEDH as an archetype because of it), or weenies, or lifegain, why do you want to play white? And if you'd rather play Cultivate or Harmonize but in white! but don't lose access to Wrath of God , Sun Titan and Swords to Plowshares , why not play selesnya? The color system works on colors both exploiting and complementing each others' strengths and weaknesses, and not every color is meant to do everything. If you want to Cultivate , play green, it's ok to play green.

Colorshifting with a white twist just to give the color access to the same staples that the other colors have, is not a solution that would fix white. It would make white just feel like the other colors, pushing out the actual interesting white cards to make room for green "light" gameplay.

Tithe needs a reprint really badly. Is it on the reserved list?
