Unruly Mob Discussion
1 month ago
So many new cards have been revealed in a single day, there is no way that I can comment on all of them!
First, I am very disappointed that the only reference, thus far, to Emrakul’s invasion is the flavor text of Unruly Mob; are we, the audience, seriously supposed to believe that a reality-warping eldritch abomination had no long-term effects upon the plane? Perhaps the lights in the sky that numerous cards depict are remnants of Emrakul’s power?
Why is it necessary to now have a card that indicates day and night? What was wrong with the previous method of operation? Actually, I supposed that it allows for interesting effects beyond werewolves transforming, so that is not too bad, in my mind.
On that subject, why are the inhabitants of Innistrad afraid of longer nights and shorter days? Does that plane not have changing seasons?
I am always excited to have a new cycle of dual lands, but why did WotC choose to start a new cycle, rather than finish an existing cycle? This would have been a perfect opportunity to complete the cycle of “battle lands” (i.e., Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade, etc.), and, on the subject of those lands, these new lands are almost reprints of them, but they instead count all lands, not merely basic lands, in exchange for not having basic land types, so it is nearly an even trade, in my mind.
Tovolar finally has a card, and it seems that he shall be a great general for werewolf EDH decks, which many players have been desiring. I do also like that Arlinn has three different versions, but I hope that at least one legendary creature gets a full-art card, so that planeswalkers do not monopolize that frame style, in this set.
I wish that the new Sigarda was not so human-centric, but her second incarnation focused on humans, so it should not be a surprise that her third incarnation is, as well.
Brutal cathar can be abused with an effect that transforms it, as it can exile a new creature for each time that it transforms, which is definitely awesome.
I do like Avacyn’s Memorial, as a reference to Akroma's Memorial, but the first memorial was a colorless artifact that cost 1 mana less than the angel whom it honored, whereas this memorial has the exact same mana cost as its matron, which I feel is far too strict, as well as the fact that it affects only legendary permanents, so I highly doubt that I shall use it, unless I am desperate.
Candletrap is a very interesting card, and I like how it can incapacitate a creature initially and then dispose of it, later. Unfortunately, I suspect that this card shall become popular in EDH as a way to immobilize a general while making it very difficult for the controller of the creature to liberate it.
I like the visions cycle, but those cards are nothing spectacular, so I shall likely use those cards in my decks only if I cannot find better alternatives.
I am very surprised that it took as long as it did to make a card named "defenestrate," but I certainly like it; it is overshadowed by Infernal Grasp from the same set, but it certainly is far superior to is Walk the Plank.
Finally, curse of obsession gives a reference to Edgar Allen Poe on Innistrad (specifically, the Tell-Tale Heart)! I suppose that Nevermore could be considered as such a reference, but the lack of a raven in the artwork ruined that opportunity.
Dawnheart rejuvenator is nice, but I would rather have Llanowar Visionary for 1 less mana, as that creatures draws a card when it enters the battlefield.
I notice that this set has angels and evils, but no demons, thus far, so I do hope that it has some of those, soon.

Loving the concept — always looking for new uses for the Unruly Mob ! In practise, I played through different options for card draws — Crash Through granted trample damage and brought about some victories, and Renegade Tactics is similar to the Topple the Statue .

Good Afternoon, Hope everyone is doing well.
I've amassed the following cards for specifically a soldier-themed deck, but I'm having trouble narrowing down the list for an appropriate deck, so I'd like to request advice and assistance. The general idea was to summon a bunch of soldier tokens, buff them, defeat opponents, but I keep stumbling into cards that would be 'cool' or 'awesome' with the theme. Here are the cards I am looking at:
Legendary Cards (Potential Commanders) Akroma, Vision of Ixidor (Synergy with Odric) Baird, Steward of Argive (Good delay) Brimaz, King of Oreskos (Cheap commander that produces soldiers) Darien, King of Kjeldor (decent way of making soldiers, expensive) Keleth, Sunmane Familiar (only for partner) Lena, Selfless Champion Mikaeus, the Lunarch Nahiri, the Lithomancer Odric, Lunarch Marshal Odric, Master Tactician Prava of the Steel Legion Thalia, Heretic Cathar Trynn, Champion of Freedom
Normal Cards Abzan Falconer (synergy with Mikaeus) Adaptive Automaton (buffs soldiers) Ainok Bond-Kin (synergy with Mikaeus) Ancestral Blade (2 for a 2/2 creature seems good, especially if I can re-assign it to Auriok Steelshaper) Angel's Feather (Life gain) Angel's Grace (emergency + synergy with Darien)(Isochron Scepter) Anointed Procession (Double tokens, yes) Anointer Priest (life gain for tokens, seems good) Auriok Steelshaper (seems like good synergy with the equipment in the deck, if they're included. Otherwise, might toss this out) Aven Brigadier (Might toss this) Aysen Crusader (P/T based on soldiers? Yes please) Ballyrush Banneret (cheaper soldier spells) Basri Ket (Synergy with Abzan Falconer and Ainok Bond-Kin)(Produces Soldier Tokens) Benalish Commander (Roundabout way of producing soldiers) Bounty Agent (Neat way of dealing with certain cards) Call the Coppercoats (Produces soldiers) Captain of the Watch (Produces soldiers, buffs soldiers) Captain's Call (Produces soldiers) Catapult Master (Neat way of exiling enemy creatures) Cenn's Enlistment (produces soldiers, retrace) Commanding Presence (roundabout way of producing soldiers) Conclave Phalanx (can easily be a free creature + free life gain) Congregate (good life gain) Conqueror's Pledge (produces soldiers) Coordinated Barrage (meshes with soldiers well. Isochron Scepter) Crusader of Odric (can get really tough and powerful, might be worth cutting though) Daru Stinger (Could be really potent) Daru Warchief (cheaper spells, buffs soldiers, seems good) Dawn of Hope (good synergy with life gains, produces soldiers with lifelink) Daysquad Marshal (produces 1 soldier token, only really good with other buffs/cost reductions) Decree of Justice (mostly just to cycle it) Deploy to the Front (Great way of expanding ranks of soldiers) Devout Invocation (This is basically a win condition) Door of Destinies (buffs soldiers) Elspeth Tirel (makes soldiers, gain life, emergency nuke) Elspeth, Knight-Errant (makes soldiers, indestructable emblem) Elspeth, Sun's Champion (produces soldiers, cool emblem) Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis (makes soldiers or gain life, neat concept) Enlistment Officer (Good way of thinning the deck) Entrapment Maneuver (produces soldiers while protecting yourself, smidge situational) Erase (cheap removal. Isochron Scepter) Evangel of Heliod (produces soldiers, potential for lots of soldiers) Even the Odds (Nice way of getting emergency troops) Fairgrounds Warden (cool removal) Field Marshal (buffs soldiers) Fiend Binder (cool removal) Finale of Glory (basically a win condition) First Response (Nice way of benefitting from small attackers, I think) Garrison Cat (produces 1 soldier token, effectively replacing itself, might be worth cutting) Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (only really here for the emblem and possibly getting buffed on attacks) Gift of Estates (Land is always a problem for me, good deck thinning) Glorious Anthem (buff) God-Favored General (produces soldiers, albeit a bit expensive) Haazda Marshal (neat soldier producer, makes lifelink soldiers) Hero of Bladehold (battlecry + soldier producer, great with Haazda Marshal) Holy Day (defensive spell, Isochron Scepter) Honor of the Pure (buff) Hunted Witness (replaces itself with a soldier, cheap, might cut though) Intangible Virtue (buffs tokens) Intrepid Hero (Great removal, lots of great memories, nostalgic for me, etc) Isochron Scepter (Keep using certain Instants as needed) Join the Ranks (a bit expensive but makes soldiers) Journey to Nowhere (removal) Keeper of the Accord (really cool card, definitely helps with soldiers and lands) Knight-Captain of Eos (basically a holy day by sacrificing a soldier, seems really good) Land Tax (Land is always a problem) Launch the Fleet (produces soldiers, great with Odric, Haazda Marshal, Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, etc) Leyline of the Meek (Neat little buff) Lieutenants of the Guard (neat mechanic, might cut) Loxodon Partisan (battlecry, might cut) Loyal Sentry (neat concept, cheap) Makeshift Battalion (diet battlecry) Marble Diamond (might be good) Marshal's Anthem (neat card, might be beneficial in a pinch) Martial Coup (great removal + producing soldiers) Mentor of the Meek (card draw from soldiers) Militia Bugler (decent deck-thinning, might cut since its only top four) Militia's Pride (produces soldiers, lots of good synergy) Mobilization (decent buff, built-in soldier producer, tad expensive) Mother of Runes (utility, might cut) Murder Investigation (neat little way of producing soldiers, depends) Ninth Bridge Patrol (neat way of benefitting from tokens getting destroyed) Nomads' Assembly (huge potential) Oath of Lieges (Land is always a problem) Oathsworn Giant (expensive, but decent buff) Oblivion Ring (Removal) Omen of the Sun (produces soldiers, little life gain, scry later, flash, generally good) Palace Guard (cool card)

lot of cheap creatures) Reborn Hero (neat concept, can bring it back) Rebuff the Wicked (neat counter) Recruit the Worthy (cheap soldiers, Isochron Scepter) Recruiter of the Guard (decent search)

(potentially lots of soldiers) Rhox Pikemaster (Decent buff) Righteous Cause (Decent buff, tad expensive) Riot Control (neat life gain, defense) Rootborn Defenses (defense, makes a soldier, neat) Safe Passage (defense) Selfless Squire (interesting utility, might cut) Sergeant-at-Arms (can create soldiers, seems expensive though) Shielded Passage (neat little defense, Isochron Scepter) Sol Ring (obvious reasons) Soul Parry (decent defense, Isochron Scepter) Soul Snare (neat way to keep up devotion + have something on hand to deal with a creature) Soulmender (cheap creature, life gain, might cut) Standing Troops (decent card, might cut) Stormfront Riders (expensive way of producing soldiers, flying, might cut) Strata Scythe (make something huge, might cut) Strength of Arms (decent way of making soldiers, Isochron Scepter) Sword of the Meek (decent way of bringing it back from graveyard, might cut though) Sworn Companions (lifelink soldiers) Terminus (nice clutch card) Thraben Standard

Hey, Skullclamp is one of the better repeatable die effects with Teysa since drawing 4 cards each time you equip to a creature for 1 mana is very good value.

- Arcane Signet
- Talisman of Hierarchy
- Viscera Seer
- Archon of Justice
- Sun Titan
- Court of Grace
- Demon's Disciple
- Woe Strider
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Kaya's Wrath
- Generous Gift
- High Market
- Tainted Field
- Temple of Silence
These cards could replace:
- Vivid Marsh
- Vivid Meadow
- Orzhov Guildgate
- Gavony Unhallowed
- Dauntless Cathar
- Voracious Null
- Unruly Mob
- Countless Gears Renegade
- Thallid Omnivore
- Bone Splinters

Other good budget cards with Teysa: Dark Prophecy, Midnight Reaper, Dreadhorde Invasion, Victimize, Ministrant of Obligation, Marauding Blight-Priest, Path of Ancestry, Witch's Cottage, Esper Panorama, Ash Barrens.
Good luck with your deck.

When I started playing Standard, I started with Innistrad (I learned and got into it with the Dragons vs. Knights Duel deck, but didn't play a real format until the fall), and My deck was a white weenie, centered around Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (she came along later, but I have to mention her, she's so great!!), Elite Vanguard, Doomed Traveler, Selfless Cathar, Elite Inquisitor, Unruly Mob, Mentor of the Meek, Fiend Hunter, and topped by Angelic Overseer.
When Thraben Recuiter enters the battlefield, create X 1/1 white Human creature tokens, then put X +1/+1 counters among Humans you control.
I'd like to see a Kaldheim common, considering the cards already spoiled.

There's a lot out there...I guess I would start with the word “mob” and then move into more searches for humans. Love the theme!!

Wesley as a farm boy: Diligent Farmhand. Not Modern legal, but...
Castle Ardenvale or any of the other Eldraine castles.
Unruly Mob is the mob that had to be dispersed before storming the castle.
Of course, they did have to Storm the Citadel.
Perhaps True Love's Kiss?
