[TCD] Thalia + Spellskite

  • #1
    I think Thalia is really amazing in modern now and want to find different ways to use her. In an earlier thread somebody mentioned Thalia and Spellskite working well together. It seems like a lot of decks will have a hard time beating that duo. I'm looking for suggestions on how to fit both of these cards into the same deck.

    I'm not really sure what you're asking here. How to fit both in the same deck? Well... it's pretty simple. You put Thalia in your deck, then you put Spellskite in your deck = problem solved?

    Wow, so insightful. I'm actually looking for some brainstorming on what kind of decks can benefit from having both. Maybe some creature based combo or midrange.

    i'd try them both in some kind of death and taxes deck (maybe splash blue so spellskite doesn't do too much damage to you)

    I put together Thalia and Spellskite post-board in Pod decks a lot. Heck, they're decent alone, so I tend to prioritize searching for one over the other (the other is just gravy).

    Why do you even bother posting? This thread was created to help him, not to fuel your boredom with snark. If your not sure what the thread is asking, it's probably not the posters fault. It's more likely directly related to your intelligence level.>

    On topic, a Doran, the siege tower deck featuring spellskite, treefolk harbinger, and thalia seems synergistic although possibly too gimicky. It might not win any pro tours but smashing in for four with your spellskite is nasty when you have the board locked down with it and a thalia.

    Unfortunately, Thalia and Spellskite aren't in different colours, and they have no innate anti-synergy that must be overcome (like how to put Snapcaster Mage and Tombstalker in the same deck, or how to put Bob and Stalker in the same deck). Badd B has a point--it's not particularly difficult to just stuff them in the same deck, as the two get along just fine.

    Disagree. Thalia and Spellskite are anti-synergistic.

    Thalia is only good when you have a constant string of threats to back her up. Forcing your opponent to pay more for his spells doesn't really amount to anything if you aren't going to capitalize on it. Following up your turn 2 Thalia with a 0/4 (or waiting for the 0/4 to hit play before you play her) is going to kill your tempo and give your opponent the time he needs to still win with Thalia in play.

    After all, what makes Thalia such a powerful card is that she timewalks an opponent who was planning on casting his removal spell at the end of your turn. If you like Thalia, your focus should be on how you can punish your opponent for killing her, not necessarily from preventing your opponent from killing her.

    I like the idea of putting both of these in a Doran deck though.
