I'm not sure what to say to that.

This is a tournament-level help thread. I'm generally not in the business of making deck suggestions that will make a deck inefficient just to make it fun. If you're not have fun playing a certain build, then you either shouldn't try to make it a tourney-build, or request help for this the Casual Deck thread.

Quoting Mallys:http://www.essentialmagic.com/Decks/View.asp?ID=495258

Currently trying to make this deck Extended-legal. (Only Waylay Buy and Altar of Dementia Buy aren't legal currently.)

Need to drop those cards (and probably Shred Memory Buy) and replace them with some Extended substitutions. Any suggestions? I was considering Raise the Alarm Buy and Sengir Autocrat Buy, but neither has a very favorable converted mana cost.

Considered adding another Nantuko Husk Buy and another Carrion Feeder Buy to help get a sacrifice engine into play, as well as serving as another creature to jump start the engine.

Also, any suggestions on helping rework the mana base a bit would help, too, and possibly suggestions for some anti-disruption.


There's also Decree of Justice Buy for either weenie creation or flyer creation.

Give me a bit, I'll get back to this.

A big improvement that is rather cheap would be to utilize more than just 17 lands.

RE: RE: Random Comment 10/17/2006 10:08:09 PM

another simple improvement would be to run 3-ofs and 4-ofs if possible.
Also, e-tags help. (just hoppin in on random doc threads)

Enchantress Auratog deck 11/1/2006 9:41:20 PM

I realized that this deck may be far from the quality that you're used to here not to mention sideboard is woefully incomplete. I am sorry.

This is my first attempt at a deck that may eventually be tournament worthy. Is extended even the right format for this deck?

Deck can take off around turn 3 or 4, but it isnt very consistent, any suggestions on how to change that or is that inherent problem with this type deck?

If 20 countries is too few (I've heard 24ish is recommended), what should i remove?

Creatures
3 Argothian Enchantress Buy
3 Auratog Buy
3 Faith Healer Buy

Spells
4 Living Wish Buy
1 Replenish Buy

Enchantments
1 Concordant Crossroads Buy
3 Enchantress's Presence Buy
4 Exploration Buy
2 Flickering Ward Buy
3 Nature's Chosen Buy
4 Rancor Buy
4 Sterling Grove Buy
4 Wild Growth Buy
1 Words of Wilding Buy

Lands
4 Forest Buy
2 Gaea's Cradle Buy
2 Pendelhaven Buy
2 Plains Buy
4 Savannah Buy
2 Serra's Sanctum Buy
4 Windswept Heath Buy

Sideboard
1 Argothian Enchantress Buy
1 Auratog Buy
1 Dosan the Falling Leaf Buy
1 Faith Healer Buy
1 Gaea's Cradle Buy
1 Serra's Sanctum Buy

RE: Enchantress Auratog deck 11/3/2006 5:28:04 PM

Unfortunately, much of your deck is no longer Extended-legal, as Urza Block sets rotated out quite some time ago.

I'd like to answer some of your question despites that, but I usually don't run into this type of deck, so much of what I'd say would be educated guesses.

If you want to tweak this as is, I'd recommend seeing the T1 tourney help thread.

Thanks for responding. Would this deck be legacy legal? I'll take any advice you have to offer, an educated guess from you is as close to expert advice as I can hope for.

RE: Enchantress Auratog deck 11/7/2006 4:35:47 AM

At first glance, this looks 1.5 legal, so give me a bit of time and I'll give it a shot.

For starters, sideboards are either no cards or fifteen cards, there is no in between.

I'll recommend some useful fixes. For one, in the the {U}/{B}/{G} I experimented with for a while, I used Kodama's Reach Buy and Farseek Buy along with Sakura-Tribe Elder Buy. All three are decent mana-fetches, except Farseek Buy cannot search for Forest Buys.

Keep in mind, you're running a tri-color deck, so sufficient mana-accel is vital. Side out some of your contigency cards to make room.

I've made this request wait far too long.

First off, twenty lands is fine under two conditons.

1.) You're running a build with a low mana curve that allows the deck to function off of fewer lands in play.

2.) You've included sufficient fetch card and mana acceleration to make up for a lower land count.

Personally, I run 22 in my decks, unless I'm using acceleration. Birds of Paradise Buy and Llanowar Elves Buy can speed up decks like this, while providing emergency damage and chump blockers.

You don't have many accelerants outside of Exploration Buy, and 1.5 has a good deal of enchant hate, so contingency cards would be good.
