    I didn't play Marisi this weekend since I had been going so hard with him the past two, but did make a few tweaks.

    I'm starting to dislike the "All creatures must attack" effects; they just seem lackluster when we are goading our opponent's anyway.

    One thing I added to give my creatures a little more evasion is Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa. I've always loved him and this is probably the best home for him. The upside is since his ability affects all all creatures with 2 or less power, not just yours, your opponents' little weenie creatures will be getting in for damage as well.

    Like we were discussing on the Let's Brew thread: I have hatebears and ways of granting evasions (Swords, and the recently added Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa)

  • posted a message on Rafiq of the Many
    I will preface this with I have not played Rafiq in a long time, and when I did, it was a Legend of Zelda themed deck, so my choices were made with both flavor and function in mind...

    The main thing I can see right now is I don't like have Aura's and Swords of XandY unless they are Sword of Sinew and Steel (the other equipment are fine; these two categories are just nonbos with each other). Focusing on one over the other allows more synergistic cards like Stoneforge Mystic (maybe a good card regardless, since you are playing other equipment) or Sovereigns of Lost Alara

    Other individual choices: Stone Haven Outfitter feels meh, you don't have many tokens or creatures, and Im assuming Rafiq will never enter the graveyard to trigger that the draw ability.

    A single mana-dork in Avacyn's Pilgrim seems like an odd include.

    Tamiyo, Field Researcher is a lot of fun. Her +1 triggers on each instance of combat damage (and not just to a player), so you can target Rafiq or whatever creature you are attacking with, Swing, deal first strike damage and draw a card then deal normal damage and draw a card. And if Rafiq had vigilence, if he blocks, he'll get to draw you another card as well!

    We were discussing on the Discord the use of SFM with ThopterSword combo.

    2 questions:

    1) Are you looking for budget-friendly suggestions?
    2) What is your overall game plan? Normally Rafiq will suit-up and win with commander damage, but you a decent number of your creatures look like THEY want to be the ones to attack instead. This is NOT a problem; will just help with suggestions.

    A couple of observations from my hatebears-y games:

    • Hatebears are a fun way to build the deck, but it lacks some reach; I had trouble closing out games. Skyline Despot seems like a perfect one to include.
    • I had some "attacks each turn if able"effects that seemed kind of lackluster; If I needed my opponents to attack not me, I never really had a problem Goading them
    • Always remember the read Master Warcraft very carefully; it doesn't do quite what you think it does.
    • Sunforger is possibly the best equipment for the deck as it grabs all of our white protection spells.

    I had Skyline Despot for a while in my list because I LOVE the Monarch as a mechanic, but for tomorrow Im trying a lower land count/lower CMC, more hatebears-y version.

    For card draw, I would consider Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project.

    My biggest love of the Swords is that a single sword turns Marisi into a 3 turn clock with the right sword. Played against a mono-black deck on Saturday and after 2 swings with Marisi and Sword of Light and Shadow, they essentially worked for me for the rest of the game.

    Total war doesn’t really do anything if you’ve hit them with marisi from what I can tell. They already have to attack with everything anyway?


    It'll keep them from flashing out creatures at the end of turn to have blockers and their mana still open when they pass the turn. Kind of a niche scenario, but more common than one would think.

    I actually proxied up a Marisi list this weekend and played a few games with it. Two games it got locked out because, naturally, this was the week a buddy decided to try out Aboshan, Cephalid Emperor. It was a lot of fun to play though. My deck tries to give evasion with Swords of XandY, so it's a little different than yours, but one thing I think both our lists would enjoy is giving our opponents tokens. Things like the Hunted creatures and Forbidden Orchard, go along with Generous Gift and Beast Within.

    What I like is that you can still let damage happen, but end combat with any saboteur triggers still on the stack. Your voltron opponent swing his sworded up commander at your other opponent? Let the damage happen to knock them out, but end combat before the attacker can gain life, ping that, draw, untap, spill your soda, kick your dog, date your mom, become your new dad, get a creature back, proliferate, etc.

    Seasoned Pyro pitching graveyard pieces and being able to be Sun Titan'ed back seems really good too.

    I'm wondering if Smiting Helix is also worth a spot; Gifts into Bolt, Smiting and Lightning Helix's, and Snapcaster, ask OP how they prefer their 6 damage?

    If I continue playing singleton Gifts, it would let me play Mardu Charm as well, which is a pet card.

    The more I study it, the more I like the 4C/no G list Funeral posted. The synergies are ridiculously good.

    I dont recall how it goes this year, but I'm really hoping this is a foil... or has a foil at some point. The art on the Weatherlight characters would pop in foil. Especially this and the new Gerrard art



    Weirdly, if they follow the general convention for foils, Greven will be foiled but Gerrard will not.
