Glissa has long been a favorite of mine, but that deck has fallen out of favor in recent years and I figured she could use a reboot. This time around, with a strategy I'm new to - stax.
To me, glissa seems ideal for a primarily sac and discard-based stax deck. The baubles she loves are perfect to both discard and sac, as they're cheap to recast, and easy to recur, especially with all the other sacking going on. She's also excellent at recurring most of the major stax pieces, and provides a really nice backbone for the other recursion in the deck.
The main stax elements are sac and discard. I've largely ignored otherwise strong stax cards like winter orb because it's harder for me to work around - My assumption is that, in order to efficiently use any given symmetrical effect, you need some sort of support to lessen its effect on yourself, and while discard and sac work great with glissa's built-in recursion, winter orb and static orb require different support cards to make worthwhile. But I am, as I say, new to stax.
A few cute little synergies:
fetches can get dryad arbor, which is useful with skullclamp, grave pact, and equipment.
Forbidden Orchard ensures glissa triggers.
stronghold rats is great with swords.
strip/waste with crucible/lftl and azusa/exploration/oracle is a well-known but still ridiculous lockout. Also, with fetches is awesome. And once they're out of targets, no problem, just use the fetches as sac fodder, or shufflers for oracle.
khalni garden provides two sac targets, works great with skullclamp, grave pact, and equipment, and can be recurred with lftl/crucible.
entomb can dump artifacts in response to combat or removal so glissa can get it into your hand.
ichor wellspring is ridiculous with smokestack or braids and glissa.
earthcraft is insane with token producers.
SoLaS recurs ewit which recurs whatever you like. SoLaS killed? np, glissa recurs it. and there's VS, trading post, and myr retriever as a backup.
lftl + cycling is always fun, and dumps more artifacts for glissa.
realms uncharted with great with lftl/crucible.
anyway, that's the gist.
I don't actually own the tabernacle yet, I'm debating where it's worth the investment. Most of the other expensive stuff I've got.
