shadowcaster on Breya's Genius

It's me from the game shop. I went with a different decklist seen here Sisters by Different Misters. The cards I need now are Kormus Bell, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, True Conviction, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Akroma's Memorial, and Rhox Faithmender. I still have that card you wanted. I couldn't figure out how to use the chat or how to follow people here, so I had to do it this way. I +1'd your deck because I think it's cool and love the description. It's given me a lot to think about.

Lost in Memory

Instant

Return target creature to it's owner's hand.

If you control a card named Argrud's Wand, Destroy that creature instead,and it's controller discards a card.


Make a card with the Hollow keyword from Vanguard,and with another ability that combos well with it.

Hollow - When this creature enters the battlefield, you may put it in the Hollow state. If you do, sacrifice it at the end of turn.

I'm a little shocked you play so many creatures in a prowess/spell based deck. Also what do you think of the storm style cards in the format Expedite and Renegade Tactics?

Oh, man. i'd love to give you my two cents, but when I comes to stabdard, I'm broke AF. Meaning that I only ever do casual/vintage/legacy because I can't be bothered to limit my choises :p but I'll be glad to give it a spin

TheTindell179 thanks so much for the positive feedback. I'm glad you enjoy it. To properly answer your question, the goal is to fill the graveyard, both through discarding, and self milling. However, the purpose for this isn't only for Psychatog. Take note of cards above, such as Exhume and Dutiful Return. This deck also has the intention of operating as a reanimator deck, as needed. Fill your graveyard, so you can retrieve things from it as needed. As you will see above, you will notice many cards have "Transmute," which will allow you to retrieve numerous instants, such as Ghostly Flicker. As a pauper fan, you will also know the synergy this card has with Archaeomancer. This combo isn't necessary, but is certainly built in to the deck. Many of the creatures included have several different beneficial ETB effects. One final card I want you to note is Essence Harvest, a personal favorite of mine in this deck. I hope you have a chance to try this tech out for yourself. If you have any adjustments that you have found to be successful, please share. It's always a pleasure speaking with a fellow Pauper EDH enthusiast.

Felidar Guardian is banned in Standard, which makes Cats a lot weaker.

You just open each deck in a different tab then go back and forth between them, playing each in turn.

It takes some time to get used to.

I play my deck as though I can't see the hand of the Opponent deck, so I make the mistakes I would in play.

the thing i like the most was attacking tokens. yeah they go away at the end of turn. but attack with two monkeys and sac or something and then you get more. I was thinking of something like this but in URW. IDK.......

I suggest sideboarding Magma Spray as an alternative to Shock because it can take out pesky things such as Scrapheap Scrounger. Only sideboard it if you do use it, because Shock has a niceness ability to go face damage.

It's just get Body Double to copy Protean Hulk to reuse it acts as a second Karmic Guide in case your combo fails the first time Carrion Feeder is also a good back up sacrifice outlet.

Gotta say, not too impressed with this one either.

The land destruction is a bit hit and miss. I can easily make my deck function with fewer lands, and I can rip out some land destruction with Lay Bare the Heart or Collective Brutality.

This is the best Control deck I've played against, thus far: UR Control by OAFMCNAMARA

Mightyhulk1 on Semi-Budget Standard Boros Humans

Dude, you really need to look into Glory-Bound Initiate!! Swing 5 lifeline that doesn't tap turn 3 is awesome! Besides that, I love the deck, the cards really synergize well. Maybe sideboard Harsh Mentor and put in Thalia, Heretic Cathar, it's usually more relevant in the meta.

VesuvanDoppelbanger on Daretti, wannabe Stax

What do you think of Memory Jar? When recurred, it can push a lot of cards through your hand.

Grimfade on Izzet Scarbringer

Whiskerbro! Thanks for the advice!

Definitely like a lot of your suggestions, I was nervous to put any more creatures in it as I didn't want to have to protect anything else, but those seem like good additions. I cut down the "Control" half a bit, and added in some more burn, let me know what you think if you get a chance! Thanks again.

P.S. - The Crackdown Constructs went infinite with the Wandering Fumarole's Creature ability (swap the power/toughness infinite times = infinitely large creature.) - slip it in for a lot of damage... winning. It was a cheesy combo, but yeah

Just a few things I noticed might help. All in all, I like the deck.

Grave Titan isn't a bad idea. Spawns tokens pretty quick. Phyrexian Arena could give you a little bit of edge visa card draw, as well as Cryptbreaker. Liliana, the Last Hope might not be a bad investment.

I like your Temur Energy and Kefnet deck. For your energy deck may I suggest Bristling Hydra in replace of Glyph Keeper. They both practically have hexproof, but the hydra scales crazy into late game and fits the theme of the rest of your cards better. Also, I'm still a fan of Chandra, Flamecaller for her quick finishes, but that's just me. As for your kefnet deck, I've playtested something similar and Cryptic Serpent works great just like reveler, except it's constantly big. I also like the dimir one as well

Jimmy_Chinchila on Argeaux

I wonder if some cats deck could be good, playing Anointed Procession into Regal Caracal with Felidar Guardian to abuse. Sacred Cat becomes a decent T1 1-drop that can trade up in combat and maintain some utility late game with Caracal. Maybe even splash for Prowling Serpopard SB against control and even the cat-monkeys from Kaladesh. Channeler Initiate T2 could help allow an Anointed T3 for 11 p/t spread across 5 bodies on T4...

There's also a variation that main board focuses on land destruction and can sideboard into UR Dynavolt. Curious Homunculus  Flip acts as Baral #4-8.

Baral's Cruelty (Land Destro)

Yokaiinu on Bruna, the Fading Light

Here's what I recommend.

Angelic Purge, Angelic Edict are good for getting rid of the annoying things on the board. Nevermore is good for keeping your opponent's commander off of the board, and effects like Oblivion Ring are good for controlling the board state.

Board wipes I recommend include Wrath of God, Fumigate, and End Hostilities.

Hixus, Prison Warden isn't bad, but it's replaceable with Angel of the Dire Hour.

All in all, not bad for a draft. +1 from me.

The werewolves look cool. I think for sure you could tighten up your mana base. At least add Wooded Foothills and Stomping Ground. And Copperline Gorge is probably better than Cinder Glade.

BlueMageBrandon on Starting Standard

3 hours ago

Hey Everyone! I recently decided to start playing Standard for a few reasons, namely I don't like Modern and I'm starting to get bored playing just EDH with my friends. And with Felidar Guardian getting banned, this seems like a perfect time to jump into Standard. I've been brewing a couple of decks (link) but I'm still not too sure on what I want to run. My favorite color is Blue and I would prefer more of a midrange/control deck. I also don't want to run a meta deck.

Any suggestions on what deck or cards to run would be great, as well as any advice about Standard in general would be great.

Love the deck, +1 from me as I'm also particularly fond of kicking regular commander decks' asses with a deck full of nothing but commons. One question though, is the goal of the deck to get enough cards in the graveyard to kill an opponent in one swing or what? Am I missing key synergies?

That sounds exactly right. It's particularly effective against commanders but keep in mind that +1/+1 counters, auras, etc. remain on the creatures. And token creatures are unaffected.

BenGarrison I unfortunately didn't have to test much in the last week, but I'll get back to it pretty soon and also update the description. That said, no I don't think it will change much, we didn't have cards especially dedicated VS the Cat deck since our match-up VS it was pretty decent already with all the removal with naturally run.

There are already other copies of 'dont lose the game' that I dont play, and they are all more easily tutorable than a planeswalker.

The deck does not need more than 1 copy of the effect, and angels grace is the best one.

Whiskerbro on A Token of My Appreciation

Right, but you want your removal to be always effective, not just if you happen to have a singular card in your deck. Cause most of the time you cast onslaught, you realistically will not have any Hanweir Militia Captain  Flips and it will be an almost dead card.

I enjoy Marchesa, the Black Rose in my own Sliver deck - easy recursion.

Mana Echoes goes infinite with the Queen, and is a great enabler without her.

Cryptic Gateway can push slivers into play quickly as well.
