    Liliana better be grateful and at least Orzhov aligned next time I see her.
    they already have Kaya for that and would leave the mono-black spot vacant in the gatewatch lineup.
    (we curently have a white spot free, but I imagine Teyo will join soon).


    To be honest I've never understood this "there can only be one PW aligned with each color combination" mantra. This feels incredibly restrictive. Planeswalkers can occupy different niches in the same color, can't they ?
    Pretty sure it wouldn't break the gatewatch either ^^

    (In Orzhov you can have a Blink-oriented Kaya and a Zombie-Oriented Liliana easy peasy)

    It was the color of Heroic in Theros, so it kinda makes sense to me Smile

    I do love the symmetry in Teyo's wall. It pleases my eye somehow.

    Really like the angel too.

    However Woja looks quite chubby (maybe he's eaten too much lazotep coating). Isn't he in a weird pose ?

    This actually bums me out :,(
    Kytheon was my first duel commander deck, it feels like I saw him grow and witnessed him passing away.
    He was not a complex character but he was a good guy.
    Good night sweet prince.

    Wow, if this leaked card turns out true, it's pretty bonkers. A universal tutor + a potential finisher stapled to the same card <3

    Will slot right in my Green-based EDH decks, and hopefully in devotion too.

    I even wonder if it will still be worth playing Pact with it in the deck...

    Not a big fan of the Karn inclusion. It seems powerful and out of flavor at the same time ^^
    Also it is an expensive Wish in a sense. I've tried playing Glittering Wish in the past in other decks and wasn't satisfied.

    I'd like to see a deck including the new Kiora as soon as you get one CurdBros. It's got me real excited Grin
    I really like Domri and Vivien for creatures builds too, will try them !

    Poor Jaya got the wrong end of the stick with her tainted glass artwork. Her face is a big miss. It looks like a meme photoshop or something, with a glued stupid face on an otherwise fine artwork.

    I just wanted to say that I've been playing that list that performed well recently in my LGS on Wednesday and... I've been disappointed. This version of the deck has a glaring weakness : it doesn't play any catch all like Oblivion Ring or Cast Out, and I really missed them. I lost 2 games (and thus a match 1-2) to a Liliana the Last Hope I simply couldn't possibly handle. I lost 1 other game to a Scavenging Ooze while I couldn't draw a path or a wrath. And I won a match against an artifact deck that wasn't playing Ensnaring Bridge for a reason. If he had it would have been nigh impossible to get more than a Draw.

    I think I'll modify a few things to play these catch all that I feel are necessary in this deck.

    I was however pleased by Avacyn (first time trying her), satisfied by Hallowed Burial against Hollow One, and ok with the manabase. The 4 Fields of Ruin 4 ghost quarters feels good Smile

    Congrats on your result ! How did you "recur" Ballistas, though ? Just using Mistveil Plains + Dusk / Dawn ? How did you find Dusk // Dawn by the way ? I'm afraid this is a dead card against most of the format, really. Just looking at your matchups, it doesn't feel optimal against Humans, Hatebears, and even Mardu Pyromancer as well.

    Let's not talk about privileges and stuff, because as much as I like Magic Aids' gameplay videos I feel like we're not at all on the same political page. He went through an embarrassing meltdown from my point of view, but at least it's over ^^'

    Like you I feel the deck is still looking for ITS finisher because none fits perfectly. The angels are good but kinda slow and fragile to counterspells. Keranos/Kefnet are interesting but require a splash. Assemble the Legion and Luminarch Ascension are a nombo with Solemnity.
    I'm not sure about Hazoret either, since it's got no evasion it'll take a looooong time killing your opponent by pinging him 2 damage each turn.
    Asking for a turn 4 kill is a little ambitious, but yeah killing by turn 8-10 would already be better than what happens some times with the deck ^^

    Adding planeswalkers is an idea but PW : 1/ Are not protected by Leyline of Sanctity 2/ Are not protected by Ghostly Prison and 3/ Suffer from Suppression Field. I'm not sure they'd survive long.

    Personnally I'll stick to the Entreat the Angels + Sigil plan game 1 and bring Luminarch Ascensions (+ Obliterate if I go the WR route) against control if necessary.

    I suppose the best land to cast an Obliterate while still providing white mana when needed would be Rugged Prairie ? Drmarkb, maybe you can share your WR manabase with us (or possibly your whole list) =)

    By the way, content creator Magic Aids posted a video playing a Jeskai version of Pillow Fort.
    It makes for a very funny video, and blue enables a lot of drawing plus a funny kill with Keranos. I'm not convinced at all it is better than non blue versions, but it fared pretty well on camera ^^

    Played pillow fort last week. The deck still feels good. I had a hard time against the new UR wizards, mostly because I didn't know the deck. One game I wanted to land a ghostly prison : it got remanded - remanded - remanded - snapremanded. Sure... Of course I never had a Leyline in starting hand to make things spicy ^^
    I must say I'm pretty glad I swapped Grand Abolisher for Defense Grid though. They basically don't remove anything that's on board, so a turn 2 Grid is a very efficient way to protect oneself. And it doesn't die to bolt.

    I was also caught of guard by a Mardu Nahiri deck. The damn Nahiri is strong against us, and for a long part of the game I was sure I was just playing against a weird mardu pyromancer list. :X

    I had to utterly crush a RB Hollow One deck though. Loved it.

    It was the first time I playtested a single Arch of Orazca in the main, and despite the nombo with Suppression field it drew me a few cards so that made it way better than a "normal" land in the slot.

    Edit : I really like your sideboard plan, Sandmanness. I'll pilfer it I think. I always refrained to play Luminarch because of Solemnity but I guess against control it is actually viable. The only thing I don't like are the two Abolishers but it's just because I like to blank my opponent's removal spells. I have three grids right now but I should go to 4.
    How is the Flagstones/Ghost quarter plan working out for you ?

    Count me part of the unconvinced crowd. Impressive win, congrats to the originality, but Sarkhan... just doesn't seem that good. The deck looks super clunky. It's maybe a few pieces away to be really slick though.

    The only thing I could see myself do with my regular Skred deck : maybe let go of the 4x Relics 2x Scourge main deck like he did. I mean... it's a slight edge against control, but are the slots really worth it ? I'm less and less sure. That's 10% of the deck we can free.
