Yeah, I am thinking a Flickerwisp (ONE ONE ONE) would suffice for ED. My ability to draw cards and to get a hexproof creature with lifelink and vigilance will make the game competitive and keep me alive a reasonable amount of time to where I can draw one....Also, I saw the caps of your mirror match with the pariah and indestructibility....LOLOL....I think one wisp would be good for a mirror match and it could also have other small benefits...
I am thinking a Mind Control would be nice at this point?
Ditch 2x Three Dreams and one of those 5 mana enchantments....for two pacifisms and a Mind Control....a followed footsteps would be nice to....
I had no idea what an Avatar was in this deck so I had to look....yeah, the Godhead of Awe is a good card......I suppose a feather counter could make the Obliterator killable by a 1/1 stalker or 2/2 if necesary.....Just trying to find a pinch of control in this deck....
I reall think gift of granite has to go....no room....and a three dreams could even help you get a pacifism if needed....
What I have been doing has been working so I am hesitant to change it....
So two winds of rath, godhead of awe, lots of carddraw, hexproof unblockables and some ample lifegain kind of offset the utter and complete lack of removal.
Y'know, I haven't missed Pacificsm so far. Narcolepsy (which is one of the differences in our decks) does a better job for the same price. I also have one Mind Control , just for that last bit of control...though it feels like this deck doesn't need it too badly. If you're not pushing through with your pumped-up weenies and bonus life gain, it seems like this deck won't stand a chance either way.
Aven Mimeomancer seems like it should be so handy, but I'm yet to use it on a nasty like Grave Titan or somethin'. I think I might drop it for the Flickerwisp . Any thoughts?
I don't know. Flickerwisp is really useful in removing a worship or mirror matches if they enemy has pariah/indestructibility on. ED is played so little on the ipad that its meaningless to me unless I am in a tournament here and someone is running it....the mirror matches could be a little more prevalent right now....but I don't think its needed...I don't want to mess with the deck for 15 to 1 odds of getting in a mirror match and to top it off there is only one pariah so the odds of getting it, even with card draw in a mirror are 25-50% depending on how long the game goes.... so thats what, once in every 30-60 games I will wish I had a flickerwisp? I'll do without it. If AS becomes the new hotness then I'd include it.
I can't include mind control as I am at 5 total 5drops and I don't ant to be too top heavy.... I'm trying a Sigil of the Empty throne. I had overlooked this card but I've been smashed by it several times. If its cast on turn 5 by an enemy then I know turn 6 is going to be terribad for me...
I think the two winds....two narcolepsy (I switched!), the wall, pariah/indestructibility combo, card draw and lifegain potential are enough balance here....an Aven I wouldn't mind, not only can it slow down some monsters but its an evasive attacker and potential blocker as well. It can also pump up your 1/1s and 0/2s..
I'm thinking of dropping the mammoth umbra for it but I like having an extra totem armor in their...
I am going to try out the Sigil and see if it has any impact over a set of 10 games or so...Maybe the aven wil ltake its place or maybe its time to drop gift of granite....its there mainly as cheap pump/draw/combat trick/get me a coronet on quicker anyays....

Although this thread has gone on for a few days, I have to agree with DroneOn and Monk in regards to keeping our forum tidy.
While the discussion originally began with mopey's tips when making a specific deck build, it has wandered into the realm of general deck building for Aura Servants which is already covered by this existing thread
. Please continue the conversation there. I'm locking this as a duplicate. Thanks for your understanding, everyone.
