Wings of Velis Vel Discussion

Hi! Thank you very much for the comment and the suggestions!
I have to confess, I didnt know Unnatural Selection until now. It is definetly a great card in this deck! I should consider to add it. However I would not replace Wings of Velis Vel in spite of the fact that it looks to be quite weak. The changelling instants are essential during the gameplay. Let me explain why:
It is every creature type so Sliver Overlord is able to find it directly. He can tutor a "sliver card", not a "sliver permanent", what means a great flexibility for all of the changelling instants.
It is every creature type so with Morophon, the Boundless on board you can actually cast it just for
It is every creature type so you can easily reanimate these instants via Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero . She is able to put a "Rebel card" not a "Rebel permanent" on the bottom of your library. That is how you can play it repeatedly.
The Wings of Velis Vel is quite versatile as well. Many times I have used the card as sort of "removal" of an opponent's dirty flyer when I have created my own surprising 4/4 flying blocker.
Last but not least: I dont want to fully optimize the deck. I would like to keep a bit of its sense of "lore". Therefore I want to play the tribal lands as Ancient Amphitheater , Gilt-Leaf Palace or Murmuring Bosk . For this reason I need a number of changelling cards to keep them functional (to reveal a Giant, Elf, Treefolk etc and to play them untapped)
Sure it is possible to replace Tendo Ice Bridge by Mana Confluence . In this case I just worry a bit to play too many pain lands, because the deck is not extremly fast and it doesnt have any easy way how to gain life.
You are right about the bordwipe as well. I used to play the Whelming Wave as a cheap and lore variant of Cyclonic Rift . Later, I beleave, I have replaced it with a counterspell, because I havent used it much. Anyway.. it is still in my mind.
Thank you once more for the comment and for discovering Unnatural Selection for me ;)

Hey! This deck has some interesting lines. At first glance, I thought that the Skyshroud Poacher and Seahunter are too slow and clunky in this deck, but I think that they can actually be interesting. Gonna upvote it :)
What do you think of Unnatural Selection ? It's a card that is an enchantment and can target multiple creatures (1 mana for each of them), changing their type, making them legal targets for Overlord's ability. I think that can work better than... Wings of Velis Vel , for example.

Hey dude long time no see, I saw 5 cards on your deck that interest me. So now, I don't know if you're familiar with Yuriko deck, but I feel like it could be very good addition of replacement for some of my cards.
I would like to have your thoughts about it if you don't mind of course.
I also found : Wonder the other day and was thinking about adding it.

CavemanlyMan at the moment it's / because I wanted to try the most ponies as I can (which happens to be in white) but I plan on reducing some because they aren't performing that well. If I were to go 5c I was thinking along the lines of Chameleon Colossus , Changeling Outcast , Taurean Mauler or we could even throw in a Morophon, the Boundless . Other possible tech upgrades I could add are Birthing Boughs , Shields of Velis Vel , Wings of Velis Vel , and Arcane Adaptation . Any thoughts?

Some changelings you may want to consider are Amoeboid Changeling to turn your other creatures into ninja, Birthing Boughs for later game changeling army, Graveshifter to bring back important cards, Shapesharer to become your best ninja, Universal Automaton for cheapness, Venomous Changeling to force someone to either kill a creature that can do 3 damage to it or trigger your commander effect while being a good chumpblocker, and Wings of Velis Vel , which can turn an attacker into a ninja, a nice suprise attack if you will.

First off thank you for playing a control deck with a win con. Next let’s face facts Lavinia, Azorius Renegade will prevent CoCo, tron and basically punish people for being rich. Wings of Velis Vel and Apostle's Blessing allows hit harder and evade.

That was an option.. as was Horde of Notions , I am still debating who should lead, this is a brand new build for me (still waiting on a card order to arrive with about 50 of the cards, lol)
But right now I am thinking Sliver Overlord because he give me the ability to steal other peoples creatures with the use of Blades of Velis Vel , Shields of Velis Vel , Wings of Velis Vel and Amoeboid Changeling . (change your Ulamog to a sliver and then take him for my own). Add the fact that he can also tutor any of those cards if someone has an especially dangerous guy on the field.
