As is the par of the course with you, a very elegant design, and of course you'd include Divine Visitation
I'm liking the little splash of evasives and value equips, and your argument for Lotus Field
is quite sound as well. Mono white has to grasp onto whatever it can. I Sun Titan
ed fetches for a prolonged period of time in my Daxos
, and it was perfectly fine. It'll work here no problem.
That said, some of the evasives feel a little on the vanilla side. Commander Eesha
, Dawn Elemental
and Seraph of the Sword
just kind of... exist. Is the damage shielding meant to have them double up as potential impenetrable walls on defence? If not, you could consider alternate evasives that do more stuff, like Aven Mindcensor
or Soltari Visionary
Originally I went a direction of trying to generate more mana and use said mana to defend myself with tokens as needed. I found out quickly though that I lacked flying defenses and there was one game in particular where it went around the table and literally everyone attacked me as I couldn't defend myself well from that. I have a bit of a reputation that makes people want to punch my face regardless of how things are going and it forced me to have to build a lot more defenses than I might have otherwise needed.
I tend to consider these vanilla flyers to be sort of a few copies of Fog Bank
. That said, they can attack and carry equipment and Heliod does make them vigilant allowing me to harass opposing walkers and get in for some chip damage with some potential equipment carriers. So far, this deck does fine it just needs to focus on continuing to live and draw more cards and I found that I get away with that by forting up to some degree. Lots of the lifegain effects have come in very responsively after things like Purphoros
and such have chipped me down to death.
I found in a lot of cases that this deck performs well for me if I can just stall games out long and so stopping opponents from attacking me has been very effective so far. That all said, I still might play with these cards as they are all very new as of right now but there is also the option for some other similar costing effects like Baneslayer Angel
. Baneslayer can be really good as well but has some downside if someone has really big threats. Those brick wall flyers can still sort of mitigate some trample damage where as Baneslayer has to just get out of the way assuming they aren't demons or dragons.
I think I have probably played this deck something like 15-20 games at least at this point and I can't recall ever having drawn Divine Visitation
. Somehow it just NEVER happens for me lol.
Its a card I am very fond of. My biggest concern is that at 4 mana per token it really is expensive to use it very often. I do really like that effect but I found that I like it more with 2-3 mana tokens. I just haven't been able to maintain the level of token production in this deck to make me happy with Martyr's Cause
