Wall of Omens

Creature — Wall

Defender

When Wall of Omens enters the battlefield, draw a card.

Heads-up this is a U/W deck, not B/W (B is for and U is for ).

Have you considered Soulherder here as a way to more reliably blink stuff?

I’m cautious that you don’t really have any good etbs and are pretty all-in on hoping to get to 50 life. It might be worth considering some better etb effects like Wall of Omens or Watcher for Tomorrow

Update!

Out: Wall of Omens

In: Primal Rage

Having played this deck quite a few times since its inception, the consistent feedback I get is that it needs more trample. That being said, I feel there's enough walls in the deck to survive a few board wipes to remove one. On top of that, the next weakest wall I can see on the list would be Wall of Omens to give room to Primal Rage.

Recommend you replace a few of the weaker defenders with Wall of Omens and The Birth of Meletis. Just great defender cards because they replace themselves in terms of card advantage.

Wall of Omens will trigger during the Cloudshift resolution, but it will wait until the next time a player receives priority to go on the stack. When the active player would receive priority both the Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward trigger and the Wall of Omens trigger will go on the stack, and since you control both you will decide the order they go on the stack and therefore resolve.

The order won't really matter though since abilities, once triggered/activated, exist independently of their sources and you will still draw the card from Wall of Omens entering the battlefield even if it has since left.

Follow up question. In the scenario of my original question, if I have a Wall of Omens exiled with Abdel which will re-enter the battlefield when Abdel is hit by Cloudshift, will the ETB of Wall of Omens trigger before Cloudshift has resolved?

If not, can I stack the ETB triggers from all the entering cards as I want together with Abdels ETB? In this simple example choose to draw with Omens before Abdel exiles it again?

Looks fun!

Workhorse goes infinite with Emiel. Infinite ETB triggers. Infinite mana with Heartstone out.

Charming Prince is a neat card. You don't go infinite with it, but if you're against decks that permanently steals cards (Etali, Primal Storm, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin, etc) this can get them back. And if you have enough mana, you can bounce it repeatedly to save creatures from boardwipes.

Be careful with Yisharn, its ability prevents you from going infinite with Brood Monitor, since you have to sacrifice the eldrazi for mana.

You may want to consider adding some low mana ETB creatures for tempo. Right now Emiel is cheaper than most of your pay off creatures, so you're going Ramp -> Turn 3 Emiel -> Turn 4 Creature (4/5/6 drop) -> Turn 5 actually getting to activate Emiel for extra value. Wall of Blossoms, Elvish Visionary, Wall of Omens, etc are good chump blockers, replace themselves, and can accelerate you earlier than the big creatures that are targets for removal.

One thing I don't get is why Polyraptor is there, it's a good card but I don't see much synergy with Emiel?

more counterspells, add draw card/scry/tutor, and remove some creatures or use your creatures for better utility abilities like counterspell, draw card, removal, etc. Defenders can't protect your Azor's Elocutors from removal and by turn 5, you're likely to have used any Counterspells you've drawn.

Send Wingcrafter to the sideboard.

Wall of Omens seems to fit your theme of defensive creatures and it cantrips, which you definitely want to help cycle through the deck to get to your wincon. I don't think this is a great direction to go, but I think it's better than at least one of the defenders you're already including.

Judge's Familiar (maybeboard) won't be good unless you can pump it.

Cut Ring of Three Wishes, as its MV to cast and activate are just way too high.

Some of these spells and their ilk would be good here: Blustersquall, Mana Leak, Serum Visions, Delver of Secrets  Flip.

wallisface, thank you very much for your suggestions. I did some calculations and increased the number of lands to 21, which (accounting for the Leyline) is about the amount to fit the mana curve, which is now also a bit better, since I took out Proclamation of Rebirth. I am currently trying to make up for running a low number of key cards by including 4xIdyllic Tutor, and I don't want to run too many Approach of the Second Sun, as they are stupidly expensive and usually dead cards until T9-T10. The second one is just there in case the first one gets taken away somehow. I made up for this by including Wall of Omens, which fits into the deck theme nicely anyways. I might try mainboarding another Sterling Grove as well, as it is really important for removal-heavy matchups. What do you think?
