Arvalis89 on Question about Heart-Piercer Manticore

Hello!

It's really a small question. I'm still new to the whole site and commander deck making business, however, I'm slightly confused. When you eternalize Heart-Piercer Manticore and it becomes a white copy. Can Manticore still be used in a Black/Red EDH even though it's eternalize makes it white?

enpci was definitly thinking about getting rid of Fleshbag Marauder or Gatekeeper of Malakir. I wasnt sure weather to keep gatekeeper because he stays on the field or fleshbag cause he hits each player.

i mostly agree on Nevinyrral's Disk because i dont like how slow it is and since ive watched the game knights and how the nevs disk made the wizards player a target ive started liking the card less. But im not sure if i need it for the mass artifact and enchant removal cause im in mono black.

im also not sure on Blade of the Bloodchief yet. Ive only really tested the deck by goldfishing here and mtg forge. I never drew it on forge yet. I mainly threw it in because i had it and it is an all star in my mono black vampire tribal deck for modern. But that deck did have some sacrifice and lots of lifelink.

ChrisKrow: I'll give you the same answer I've been giving most people recently - I'm in the last week of an internship at NASA, so my time is pretty limited. I can look it over in a week once I'm more free, though!

Had a thought about revisiting SBT, regarding Protein Bulk, how would this sequence be:

  1. Flash Hulk
  2. Grab Viscera Seer and Phyrexian Delver, returning hulk.
  3. Sac the hulk to Seer to grab Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista

Granted, it's a lot slower than the Mogis/HD Package.

enpc on drana's eternal night

With how many artifacts you have and given the nubmer of wraths you're already running, I don't personally like Nevinyrral's Disk here. It just puts you too far behind. I'd also say that Fleshbag Marauder feels a bit weak here. Generally I've found that in the games I've played with Drana, I had the least creatures by far. I think that It's great in a Meren deck but here it just feels like sub-par removal.

How good has Blade of the Bloodchief been for you? It seems like it's a bit of a trap equipment, kind of like Black Market. They have the potential to be really good, but ultimately don't perform that well unless you generate a bunch of tokens which you're saccing yourself.

tw0handt0uch on Selvala Brostorm

Basically it's just that Eldrazi are for a slow, grindy, mid-range game. They don't really win the game in a reasonable amount of time and can easily be stolen, bounced, or killed. This version of Selvala is looking to win close things out with a combo, all in one turn.

Thanks Hyperalgialysis! I couldn't resist a Monty Python joke for this "lands" deck.

I have tried using some walkers like Xenagos, the Reveler in the past, but I have never been that impressed by walkers in multi-player commander. I find that most walkers just die right away. Nissa, Sage Animist  Flip I keep because of how well she plays into the deck's theme and the card advantage she provides. That being said, Nissa, Vital Force might be worth a try. I don't run enough swamps or mountains to make Koth or Liliana worthwhile, but if I eventually include Prismatic Omen they might worth revisiting.

Since Shu Yun benefits from a lot of noncreature spells, some counter spells and exile effects would be useful. Enchantment and artifact removal like Forsake the Wordly and Solemn Judgment would be useful. Norn's Annex, Propaganda, and Ghostly Prison can make it harder for opponent's to swing at you. Counter spells like Swan Song, Essence Scatter, Rebuff the Wicked, Mana Tithe, and Countermand provide protection and the necessary control aspect you might be looking for. Other creatures with Prowess and similar effects would benefit from what you have in mind. Monastery Swiftspear, Pristine Skywise, Cunning Breezedancer, and Pyre Hound to name a few. The Ravnica bounce lands you will want to add would be Azorius Chancery, Izzet Boilerworks, Boros Garrison, and the tricolor land Mystic Monastery. You can also add the other dual lands, Tranquil Cove, Wind-Scarred Crag, Prairie Stream, Irrigated Farmland, Inspiring Vantage, and Spirebluff Canal. Some must have artifacts are Elixir of Immortality, Venser's Journal, Chromatic Lantern, Jeskai Banner, and Argentum Armor. Hope this helps!

Okay, it does add to Neheb's effect by one (for some reason I was thinking it went by combat damage for a second?), but I still see Thermo-Alchemist as being superior to Lobber Crew for this deck in every way.

Just about any other type of dual land is better than a Orzhov Guildgate. Shambling Vent or Scoured Barrens might be the best fit.

3 hours ago

What exactly does Lobber Crew do for this deck? It doesn't really seem to play off Neheb at all, and given that it's in mono-red, its untap ability is completely irrelevant. If you really need a 0-power defender that can ping everyone, why not just Thermo-Alchemist?

usaDiabetic on Ramos the Voltron Spellslinger

Sweet looking build so far.

My first thought is Vesuva for the mana base. I know its slow, but maybe Path of Ancestry .

Maybe some utility sweepers like Merciless Eviction or Austere Command.Speaking of command Cryptic Command can be clutch.

With your creatures being so few, and pretty important, I'd suggest putting in Lightning Greaves, maybe Swiftfoot Boots(being able to give haste and hexproof to Yidris and Narset can be huge.)

Maybe sneak in Triumph of the Hordes for surprise kills.

Sorin Markov could be tough at triple black, come to think of it, you might only want to use black as a splash in this deck. Looking at your couple of mono black spells(theres only a few) and they are double and triple black CMCs. I think taking some of those out could make this deck run way smoother.

Also not a huge fan of Aggravated Assault or Chandra's Ignition in your build, you don't seem to get enough value off of it, and the name of decks like these...is value.

Either way, I like where this is going, sweet build!!

ChrisKrow: What LeoSushi said isn't wrong, per se, but it's not the complete story :)

I agree that there is a feedback effect going on - once a deck is popular, it tends to snowball into more popularity. (Consider the case of hamiam's famous 11.7% OF THE TIME, IT WORKS EVERY TIME. list.)

But the real question is how do you make a deck popular enough for that feedback effect to kick in? And to that question, I would answer:

1) Make the deck powerful, but understandable. People need to have a reason to upvote it, but shouldn't get confused in the process (in which case they would just leave). And if it's a bad deck, well, the interest will usually be fleeting.

2) Make the description complete (so that people can understand the deck fully), but more interesting than just a wall of text. This is what Primers are good for! It's not a coincidence that my higher-rated decks start with an introductory hook, or pretty picture or quote.

3) Shamelessly promote. Deckcycling, featuring, posting on the "Advertise" threads, posting in other EDH groups elsewhere on the internet. I honestly do this because I want more people to help me tune the list, but the upvotes don't hurt ;)

4) Become a popular (or at least recognized) creator. Now, I by no means am objectively popular in the wider world, but I'm at least reasonably well-known on this site. (Sidenote: This one took me quite a while, and I started by posting solid builds while giving a lot of helpful and detailed comments to other people.)

5) Get lucky! I've made a lot of lists on this site, and only a few have taken off like this (the other notable one being my Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER* list). Judging and capturing the interest of the internet is hard, and crowds are fickle. Nobody knows what people will like, haha.

I hope that clarifies your question ;)

CaptSillva on Ramos the Voltron Spellslinger

Here is a list of some great cards you could consider for this deck. Corpsejack Menace, Horde of Notions, Sliver Queen, Progenitus, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Saskia the Unyielding, Cruel Ultimatum, Brilliant Ultimatum, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Bound/Determined, Decimate, Urban Evolution, Abzan Charm, Bant Charm, and Sultai Charm.

As far as some cuts go you could cut these Chandra's Ignition, Day's Undoing, Reforge the Soul, Unexpected Results, Mind's Dilation. I don't really thing they do enough in this deck.
