    No, don’t apologize. I’m with you. I still think there’s some mix of Battle Screech / Sephara / Force of Virtue that could give us some juice, but for the most part we’ve stagnated where the rest of modern has evolved greatly.

    We matchup like everyone else does, lol. The deck is so flexible with Altar that even if you gain a million life, they’ll mill you out if you don’t have the answers.

    On another note, why does WOTC hate us? Is life gain aggro always going to be relegated to standard viability? It seems like they throw us a bone every set, but each one is... garbage lol. I do believe there will be new lists pop up using MH cards, but no one has found the right mix yet.

    I don’t play Burn anymore, but when I played if I had 5 lands in play I had probably already scooped. In the 10% of games where I didn’t, I was probably up against a fringe deck I had on the ropes

    A few years ago, I ran a Collected Company version of the deck with value 3 drops, and Renegade Rallier. The deck was good, but not fast enough. I’m not the best brewer in the world though, so effects like this could probably be very powerful in the right hands.

    It may not be a rule anymore, but it used to be. I don’t see us becoming top tier, but Generous Gift alone helps us solve a lot of the issues we used to have.

    That’s what I was alluding to when I said it would be a, “gift of generosity” from WOTC, but I was trying to avoid spoiler discussion :cP

    I know no one visits this thread anymore and we can’t talk about spoilers, but... I just have a feeling we are gonna get a card to deal with Planeswalkers, and that card could also gain us a life under normal circumstances. It would be a gift of generosity from WOTC... It will probably also hit lands, but I can’t confirm this yet. It will help massively in our most troublesome matchups.

    It’s not gonna break any formats, but it gives both players some interesting choices to make.

    It slots well into paths 5-6 for hatebears/D&T (decks running Leonin Arbiter. It’s also decent against Aggro decks that don’t want lands or decks that don’t run a lot of basics, which is basically the top 5 decks. I’d gladly give a Pheonix player a land for a TitI/Phoenix. Overall, I think it was designed first as a card for limited/EDH, and then everything else.

    @Legend & @AtraxianShade: wtf? Dude, the fact that it looks like a photoshopped photograph should tell you how great the art is. It’s almost photorealistic, and yet it’s hand-painted. Leave the bath salts alone!

    I can’t understand the people bashing the art. I understand the shade thrown because she doesn’t look Kor, but damn, that is a sweet piece of art.

    Gideon Blackblade is gonna be a test card for my Humans/Soul Sisters deck. Triggers the Sisters and Champion of the Parish / Thalia’s Lieutenant. That -6 probably won’t be much of a factor, but giving a Champion or Pridemate vigilance / indestructible seems sweet.

    He’ll eat a few Trophies or Paths, but then allow a turn 4 Archangel.

    I took this bad boy from the Soul Sisters Facebook page and wanted you guys to see it.


    I obviously haven’t playtested it, but it looks sweet. The creator has been playing it on MTGO, and has an insane win percentage. What do you think?

    EDIT: left out Thalia and Auriok Champ...

    I wasn’t suggesting to cut fetches, lol. I just didn’t like the interaction with those and Martyr/Ascendant in MY deck. The Shocklands do more damage than fetches, most times. I also question whether the Martyr/Ascendant Package is good in anything besides MonoW, since it’s based on having white cards in hand. Do some real play testing before making any drastic changes based on suggestions. I’ve been wrong a lot, and I am probably wrong now lol.

    EDIT: Socklands, lawl

    Joker, have you play tested? Last time I tried fetchlands and shocklands, it was nearly impossible to hit 30 life. I dropped Ascendant and Martyr, but everyone’s list is different.

    I actually suggested Tribunal a page or two ago, for those of us who still run Oring as a 1 of.

    I get where you’re coming from on Marshal because I’ve been running a Humans Package and considered him for my deck also. If you’re having trouble casting her, your mana might be the problem. You could either go up on lands, or drop her by 1. Running her as a 3 of with only 22 lands could be the trouble.

    @Ulka, I usually don’t bother removing Bloodghast against dredge. It’s a constant trigger for us, easy to block, and once we stabilize it can’t defend.
