General Tazri does a lot of work and most of your creatures are cheap, you may not need as much acceleration as a regular EDH deck.

Most of the cards that are just big or have non repeatable effects can probably afford to go. Sylvan Advocate, Hada Freeblade, Highland Berserker, Kor Bladewhirl, Oran-Rief Survivalist, and Coordinated Barrage don't do much. Halimar Excavator will do more harm than good without graveyard removal, especially if you play against reanimator.

Cold Storage and Sun Titan will help you get more use out of the allies you do keep and Deadeye Navigator and Brago, King Eternal can lead to some explosive plays.

Acmegamewerks on Kor Equipment: Modern Competitive?

so Kor Skyfisher does two very important things for this deck, the first being that it is a Kor so it gets buffed by Armament Master. And the second is that is can bounce an equipment so you can draw more cards, something that an ago deck really needs.

saturn999 on No cards for you! -- ...

hell yeah! this is awesome! love the control feel and that you're running Torment of Hailfire and Torment of Scarabs. i think these two cards can be backbreaking for our opponents. Bontu's Last Reckoning doesn't grab your eye? good wrath and the lands not untapping can be less troublesome than you may think depending on when played. is Noxious Gearhulk still standard legal? forgive me, i don't know the rotation schedule anymore. if he is, would he fit in your deck even as a one of. granted his CMC is a bit high but he has a decent body with menace and ETB effect which could possibly help in later game. anyhow, sorry to write so much. love the deck though and especially love the fact that you've gone mono-black and control for standard. i hope your opponents have no fun playing this deck and you destroy their dreams! peace!

I really like the deck, love the idea of cloning Zegana a bunch to draw a million cards just one little thing about the list on tappedout here: you got the Temple of Enlightenment listed, but you probably mean the Temple of Mystery ;)

Primal Amulet  Flip makes your spells cheaper and can copy them as well. Revel in Riches gives you mana when creatures die so you can cast from the graveyard. Nirkana Revenant and Magus of the Coffers could be good to ramp more. Harvester of Souls draws you more cards to keep the cycle going, and Demon of Dark Schemes can reanimate some of the creatures you kill.

DatBolas on Narset (Burn)

1 hour ago

Narset was my favorite commander khans-era and I was eager to build a fun jeskai commander deck. Well, people hate narset with a fiery passion. I tried to tone down the stuff that makes Narset so annoying, like tons of extra turns or voltron. Instead I like to try and combo off with burn spells and there are lots of ways to turn off lifegain strategies. There is still some extra attack phases and turns, but not as much as there could be. I like the little story of Narset and Sarkhan getting their own commander deck :)

elgosu1337 on Empyrial Enchantments

Really like the Linvala, Keeper of Silence + Nature's Revolt combo. Have you considered Opalescence as redundancy for Starfield of Nyx? Silent Sentinel and Emeria Shepherd could be good for recursion. Mirror-Sigil Sergeant doesn't seem to add much to your deck. Hokori, Dust Drinker should work well with the tapping and untapping theme too.

Oversized_Shady Thanks for your input, I got the deck today and will do some testing. Then I can see if I have too much of something and see where I can make the cut. I think you are right and I will put some removal in, right from the start. Lightning Bolt is not the cheapest card as well, and all my copys are in my other, more serious decks. I'm thinking about using Galvanic Blast together with Great Furnace and Ancient Den, which will be around the same than 4x Lightning Bolt. Then I can go back to four copys of Toolcraft Exemplar (cutting two other creatures) and maybe also play Dispatch or Shrapnel Blast.

SerraMeya on Those Cheap Paupery Bears

1 hour ago

Balduvian Bears is legal in Paper Pauper. I played several Event in my local area and paper pauper stands for its own these days.

to be pauper legal every card in your deck must have been printed as a common in any Edition (e.g. River Boa is pauper legal cause it was common in Mirage Block, nowadays its printed as uncommon). there is no relation to mtgo anymore...

enpc on Don't Blink Me Bro!

Mentor of the Meek, Council of Advisors, Thraben Inspector for creatures. However you also have Angelic Gift, Cartouche of Knowledge, Spreading Seas and Stupefying Touch.

Alos, Induced Amnesia is good with your commander.

If you don't want to cut Conjurer's Closet, then I would ditch Spine of Ish Sah. White/Blue has enough removal that you really don't need it. And most of the time it's a lot of mana that will just pull a lot of hate.

jyli on Azor

I really like that Teferi does double duty as a flash enabler and a Grand Abolisher stand-in. Having so many permanents, being able to flash them in is really important so I would really want more chances to draw into one. I also made it a point to avoid tutors because I'd prefer it if the deck relied very heavily on drawing cards. Your deck is very different, but I imagine it plays really well. I love that Azor is very open-ended in what cards you can put in.

DatBolas on Thraxibolas (UBr Control)

This is my grixis deck and my original EDH deck was grixis. However the original deck was vampire tribal with a heavy reanimator theme so this is more of a spiritual successor than an evolution. I'm really happy with it and want to make it more Bolas-themed.

elgosu1337 on Merieke, Goddess of Theft

1 hour ago

Really like the use of untap effects to activate Merieke multiple times. Have you considered Opalescence to allow you to steal/destroy enchantments as well? Avacyn, Angel of Hope makes the things you steal indestructible so you continue to control them even after Merieke is untapped. These cards could really add a new dimension to the deck.

Juanturnkill: becuase budget is such a sliding scale, having a budget version of each list is tricky. For some, a budget deck might be $600 whereas for others it might be $75.

If you want specific deck help, you're better off going to the non-budget version of the deck listed here and then asking about budget options that way.

enpc on Don't Blink Me Bro!

I would play it over a Conjurer's Closet. But I think Selfless Spirit is worth keeping.

I still don't like Azorius Chancery. Extra mana off Peregrine Drake feels underwhelming at best (you're either comboing off or you're not really doing anything, there's no middle ground here), bouncing and ETB tapped land like Halimar Depths feels really bad and the other two examples feel niche. With Key, you pitch anything, connect and win and with owl, just get a better cantrip creature.

He_Who_Hungers on There can be no victory ...

Thanks for the love and suggestions. The thing with Corpsejack for me is that it's really fragile and doesn't really do anything more than Hardened Scales or Winding Constrictor (might consider running that last one), considering Mazirek only puts his counters one at a time.

Bloodspore and Pathbreaker do seem like good ones, but I feel they are too dependent on my board state being safe (which it usually isn't, some of the people in my group have worked up a strong hate for the deck already). It feels like they might be really easily picked off without having contributed anything. From the games I've played with it recently, I do feel I should have some trample enablers, but I'd rather look at something more sturdy than a creature, e.g. Primal Rage, Nylea, God of the Hunt or Rancor).

When you finish your Mazirek list, do put it up, I'd love to take a look at it.

Combat Celebrant might add some spice here. Gideon's Intervention in the sideboard for decks that like to use Settle. Not to mention it stops many other cards. +1 from me for sure.

Point is if you just have that Godless Shrine in the main, it will not affect your mana much at all, and you get another sideboard slot.

xyr0s on No Vial Death and Taxes

3 hours ago

Les'see... needs a lot more land. You only have 18, which is very little to begin with, and 4 of them are intended to be sac'ed. Probably you should add at least 4 lands.

Some cards in the mainboard seem like sideboard material - Nyx-Fleece Ram (for burn and other match-ups where every single point of life matters - but that is not the same as every match-up), Grand Abolisher (bringing in against counterspells - which is not every match-up), and maybe Spirit of the Labyrinth (because card-drawing isn't a feature in every game). But if you keep Spirit of the Labyrinth mainboard, there are a couple of lands that could be quite useful - Geier Reach Sanitarium and/or Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. You just activate them with spirit on the table, and start gaining card advantage.

Doomed Traveler feels underpowered here, unlike in aristocrats. It could be exchanged for Knight of the White Orchid (remember that thing with too few lands?), Flickerwisp, Restoration Angel, Blade Splicer, or something else.

asarov on Kaalia's Fliers (Heavenly Inferno Upgrade)

Hey! Thanks for the suggestions! I chose not to include Iona, Shield of Emeria because I think it would not fit well into my semi-casual meta.

As for Razaketh, the Foulblooded, I intended to trade for him from a friend but never got around to it! He will definitely be joining this list at a later date.

I have considered Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Master of Cruelties, but am not sure if they would make the deck a little too strong for my playgroup's meta, as well as Avacyn being a pricier card for my current budget. They are very good in the deck though.

tkk on Calling all angels

There is an approach to deck building called The Rule of 9. You begin by selecting nine cards. Each of these cards becomes a full play set (4 cards) yielding 36 cards in your deck. After that, place 24 basic lands and you have a deck that will consistently use your ideas to win or lose. If you like the results then you refine the deck with ideas such a mana curve, utility, and synergy.

Let's play 24 lands to ensure we have good opening hands and draw plenty of mana. Sure, we may flood out from time to time. Yeah, we may brick some draws. But nothing feels worse than seeing everything you could do if you just had some lands. Here is a succinct statistical look at why you play 24 lands.

Angelic Destiny: A great way to win the game. can take an 0/1 and turn it into a decent attacker and blocker. Does better work on things with lifelink or vigilance or double strike. Or all three.

Aerial Responder: On his own, Aerial Responder is a strong contender. He attacks and blocks well, he gains life, he's evasive...a renaissance man. When we look at curving into Angelic Destiny on four we begin to feel a slight tingle in our pants.

Ajani's Pridemate: A bear that gets bigger each time you gain life. With the right support, he can be an excellent attacker or blocker. Also, he is not the worst target for Angelic Destiny.

Pacifism: Most decent decks pack some form of removal. Pacifism is a far cry from primo, but since you're mono-white weenies you'll take what you can get and be happy with it.

By my count, we are at four of nine. This leaves us with five cards to choose. From here we can choose different ways to continue to build upon what we've done so far. Sometimes we will be playing a full four of and other times we might play less. It depends on the curve and how many slots we have available.

I've grouped these into cards that play well together. This first set is about making an army with your Angelic Accord.

Angels and Solitude

Angelic Accord gives us an engine to work with. All this card asks is that we gain life in increments of at least four. As a reward we get 4/4 angel tokens. Fulfilling these requirements can build a formidable army.

Lone Rider  Flip: If you are doing Angelic Accord things, then you'll hopefully be gaining 3 or more life a turn and the flip on him will be easier. A 4/4 first strike, trample, lifelink on (possibly) turn three is a good set up into a turn four Angelic Accord. Also makes an 8/8 lifelink, first strike, trample, flier with Angelic Destiny.

Lone Missionary: Two mana, gain four life and get a 2/1 body. Flip your Lone Rider  Flip, make an angel off of Angelic Accord, put a counter on Ajani's Pridemate. This card can enable a lot of the things you are trying to do, both in the early and late game. Play it for a reason and with a plan, running it out simply because #YOLO is a waste and will lose you game.

Solemn Offering: Interaction with decks that strongly utilize artifacts or enchantments while gaining four (wow, much amaze) life. For some silly times, you can blow up your own Pacifism to give your opponent back a creature worse than a 4/4 angel token (Angelic Accord is necessary for this to work). Not every deck plays relevant artifacts and/or enchantments so it is likely you only play one as a failsafe.

"Look to my coming on the first light of the fifth day, at dawn look to the east."

Make a big, wide army of tokens and overwhelm your opponent.

Raise the Alarm: Classic token generator. Play this end of opponent's turn to be able to attack next turn. Flash block 2/2 for value. There are just so many uses for this card.

Honor of the Pure: Anthem effect that gets better in multiples and hits all of your creatures (duh). You gain more power the wider your army is.

Spectral Procession: Make three 1/1 fliers. Pair this with Honor of the Pure and you now have six power in the sky.


Loxodon Warhammer: Probably just a one of. But what if any creature in your deck could make an angel token with Angelic Accord and this? Or flip a Lone Rider  Flip or put a counter on Ajani's Pridemate?

Crested Sunmare : Paired up with two or three Pristine Talisman and you can build an army of indestructible horses. For maximum efficiency, tap the talismans on your opponent's turn and attack with the 5/5s on your turn.

Heliod's Pilgrim: Two and a white to find your Angelic Destiny. Or Pacifism. Or Shielded by Faith. Or Pentarch Ward. Or Soul Tithe. Or Prison Term. This type of tutoring effect allows you to become a toolbox of answers and threats. Play two to help with consistently finding your finisher or answer.

Path of Bravery: Gaining life for attack with creatures and buffing said creatures when you've gained enough life. Seems sweet. If you have neither life nor an army, however, this card doesn't actual nothing. Play with no more than two.

"Let me explain...no, there is too much. Let me sum up."

Pick a core group of seven (28 total) cards. With your remaining slots pick some combinations of the other listed cards and then playtest. With any luck and through many games, you will find what works and doesn't and will make adjustments as you see fit. The cards I've listed are by no means the end all be all of what is out there, but I feel they are a nice jumping off point and a good discussion on deck building principles and techniques. This site also lets you playtest your deck so you can see how your draws look and play out a couple hands to see what you are capable of doing with the cards you've chosen.

JAPuckett85 on WonderCats

Hybrow I put in Prowler's Helm & cut Whispersilk Cloak for the same reason I cut Lightning Greaves: because of the shroud. Makes it too difficult to equip with other equipment & renders Eminence useless. I cut Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow for the same reason (protection from white/green). Thanks for the suggestions though! I have thought about Nacatl War-Pride before, but he just seems too costly mana-wise.. of he was 3G, instead of 3GGG, then I would play him, but I cut all the really high CMC cats & it plays better with the lower curve; the only creatures I kept over 6-CMC are Felidar Sovereign, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Raksha Golden Cub, and Sun Titan. Qasali Ambusher just doesn't have enough of an impact to make a slot in EDH- I'd rather pay some mana for some good keywords or abilities. I hadn't considered Nylea's Emissary or Chariot of Victory before.. I think Nylea's Emissary is ALMOST worth it if I consider it a 6/6 Trampler for 3G (because the Eminence), but the fact that it gets taken out by enchantment-hate means everyone probably has an answer for it when it becomes their problem. Prowler's Helm is still my favorite way to get damage through, but I also have Rancor, Rogue's Passage, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Vengeance, and Ahrabo's 2nd ability. Chariot of Victory might be better the Sword of Vengeance in some decks because of the Equip1, but I have at least 4 ways to cheat on equip costs (Stonehewer Giant, Sigarda's Aid, Hammer of Nazahn, Puresteel Paladin, etc), and things to tutor for those ways, so I think I'll stick with the additional +2/0 and vigilance. Thanks for the feedback, though!
