How should I upgrade this dumpy spirit precon?
Posted on April 4, 2023, 11:40 p.m. by Max_Hammer
I have four precons here that I'm upgrading: Ghired, Conclave Exile, Anje Falkenrath who is being swapped out for Chainer, Nightmare Adept, Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer who I just posted another help request about, and lastly the spirit precon here.
This one is by far the weakest and worth the least, and quite frankly spirits aren't great to begin with. Now, this question is really a matter of opinion I suppose, but it'd be great if someone could recommend a commander or some cards to really boost up the power level, but not ones that are super pricy.
The main problem with the deck is that it's hard to get set up, and once you are set up, a board wipe is basically impossible to recover from. Not to mention that if I am set up and not hit with a wrath then my 1/1s will only do so much.
The deck also seems to have some tapping synergy as well as investigation. I'd be more than willing to mostly revamp the deck, but I kinda need some suggestions first because I have zero clue how to start.
Sidenote ranty tangent here Show
Or for what happened to my dad, who bought these decks on a whim, was not knowing that spirits sucked balls and then, again, getting ROFL-stomped because someone else happened to pick a stronger deck.
I think this really comes down to playtesting and an approximate level of evenness between all of these precons. Not to mention that it can't even be power creep, since this bad boy came out 2021 and the others (I'm fairly certain) came out in 2019.
And I know the precons can't be, like, busted or have super valuable cards, but these other three are, in all honesty, pretty kick-ass. Why the downgrade?
At least I think they learned their lesson, somewhat. The WH40k precons were pretty heavy metal and had little-to-no fat in them, so that's good at least.
That said, the ghosts need to be doing the ROFL-stomping, WoTC.
And for the record, I'm not like totally livid about this, I'm just bored and rather verbose. It's a bummer, but that's about it.
Okay, rant ended.

Other thoughts are Waxmane Baku, Dungeon Geists, and Nikko-Onna as unorthodox control choices, Skyclave Apparition as a less unorthodox control choice, Cemetery Illuminator, Call to the Kindred, and Kindred Boon with some Myojin, especially Myojin of Seeing Winds. (Most things with Kindred in the name are good for tribal decks.)
Maybe not the Myojin. The new ones don't use divinity counters.

Hmm... Okay, that's actually pretty helpful. Thanks for the help mate!
Maybe spirit tribal isn't so bad, eh?
