Bruce Wayne: You're vigilantes.
Ra's al Ghul: No, no, no. A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up. But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can't stop you, then you become something else entirely.
Bruce Wayne: Which is?
Ra's al Ghul: Legend, Mr. Wayne.
Quote from xbinoxLone revenant seems bad with 29 creatures.
Quote from The_Grey_KingYou're building a white deck based around combat damage effects and don't include True Conviction? For SHAME!
Silverblade Paladin would also be a good fit.
Also, if there was ever a deck that could ACTUALLY USE the -1 ability of Venser, the Sojourner to great effect, it's THIS ONE.
Bident of Thasa seems great too, adding another attack trigger and clearing away potential blockers by forcing an attack. Finally, running a card like Sleep, Cryptic Command, Turnabout or Ensare can ensure an attack gets through.
Quote from Omega FurnaceBudget; stamina; finishers
Here's a few other thoughts...
Quote from HallucigeniaMay I ask what 'BM' means?
Quote from HallucigeniaAlright, I'm starting to think maybe I was a bit too hesitant about True Conviction, especially if I find room for the Archangel of Thune. And she's an excellent way to buff an army of midrange creatures. I'll see if she's dropped below $40 at my local store (and if she hasn't then I'm not going overboard). Elesh Norn is a superb idea as well, I'm surprised I hadn't thought of her. I'm an old fan of Glory and I'm equally surprised that didn't occur to me either.
Quote from HallucigeniaI've got so much card draw here I'd be hesitant to ALSO be spending card slots on tutor, although Ethereal Usher is, in a pinch, also synergistic even aside from the Transmute. Do you not find cards like Planar Portal a bit slow in a deck where you're drawing a lot of cards anyway?
Quote from HallucigeniaDouble Strike is so important I was willing to settle for the Hook even though I agree it's slow, although I've got a healthy toolbox and it can be replaceable with True Conviction.
Quote from HallucigeniaIt was actually 33 lands, not 31, and I've removed the Gildd Lotus for another Island, for 34 lands. I'll try that for now. The land-to-mana-rock ratio was one of the main concerns as I haven't built a 'Metalcraft' before and I agree replacing a couple rocks with lands might be in order.
Quote from HallucigeniaWell, obviously there are only two actual ninja in the deck... It's just a general term for small creatures that do things when they hit the opponent. Abusing these creatures (getting through / double strike / Resonator) overlaps with abusing Medomai.
That clear it up?
Quote from tooWhite2ballInteresting deck design. Have you considered some of the blue Cipher cards like Stolen Identity? Double strike enablers and multiple turns would allow these cards to really shine.
Quote from Omega FurnaceBM = Bad Manners
Quote from HallucigeniaHello again Furnace,
What's your opinion of Argentum Armor as a finisher, given the presence of cheaters like Stonehewer Giant and Puresteel Paladin?
Quote from jylichanI intend to make a deck like this. Have you considered Balshan Beguiler? You can potentially doom one player to turn after turn of land draws. It's not obscenely powerful. Just cute.
Quote from Omega FurnaceOmega's Brain-Pain corner:
Ok, try to run through this math in your head.
You have Strionic Resonator and Rings of Brighthearth on the board.
You activate an ability.
Rings triggers and you want to pay it.
You activate Resonator to copy Rings trigger.
Rings triggers again and you pay it.
How many copies of the activated ability can you make?
How much mana would that require?
How would this change with the addition of a Clock of Omens and no other artifacts?
What if it was a Voltaic Key instead?
Answers to come in a later post.
Quote from Omega Furnace
Any thoughts people?
Quote from jylichanValid, and I would take it even further and leave out Voltaic Key. It's easy to be greedy with effects that push your concept, and maybe that slot could be taken up by something that will smoothen your game instead of something that may grant you more triggers. I'm a fan of Burnished Hart.
Quote from esoteric117I don't know if it has been mentioned but with all the mention of her bident maybe consider Thassa, God of the Sea?
Quote from Omega FurnaceOn another note:
Rings of Brighthearth - Every time I use this card, it's broken. It's Absurd with Planeswalkers and Fetch lands, and stupid with just about any other activated ability.
