Looking for ideas on a uw deck non mentor



  • http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/19-03-17-uw-stoneblade/

    I keep getting told yo run some numbers of mentor and I really don't want to.

    What could I do?
    I already know I need to swap the swords for a sofai and a jitte and tnn for spell queller.

    So far it's working very well but I know I can get more out of the deck.

    Not a lot of synergy with the cards you're already running, but when I hear "u/w without mentor", the first thing I think of is Moat. What you're looking for is a powerful card that punishes you for running Mentors. Unfortunately Stoneforge Mystic is probably better with Mentors, but there are strong cards that aren't.

    Moat works, maybe Supreme Verdict, Oath if you're willing to splash.



  • @AliasSLH why do you want bad ideas? I got tons for you. But why?



  • if no one tries decks like these the meta game never changes right?



  • My first thought was Bomberman, but that is also probably better with at least one Mentor.



  • I don't know how you feel about adding red but I play this list online a lot. It's difficult to play and requires a considerable amount of patience but it's very strong in my experience.

  • Does it have to be primarily creature aggro?

    There's UW Ballista Bomberman. Play trinket mage, jace, bomberman combo, etc with a UW+ancient tomb mana base, TFK, etc.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Bring back Blue Angels!
