DrukenReaps on Looking For More Jank

3 days ago

I have a pretty good Mairsil, the Pretender deck, Should I Pretend This Or That?, but I'd like to make it jankier instead of more powerful.

I want to find more cards like Chaos Wand . That is either artifacts or creatures with weird activated abilities. The stranger the better.

Thanks for your thoughts.

DrukenReaps on The Atog Take Over

1 week ago

So I was going to build child of alara as an aristocrat thing but I got distracted by Atogatog instead...

The Flung King is the result of that distraction and I like the general idea of the deck but I think it could use some help before I put it together in paper.

Obviously the land base needs to be changed, I'll be doing that last.

It seemed to me the best way to take advantage of Atogs is to abuse the amount of power/toughness they can get and take advantage of things that die and come back over and over. I would like to keep that as the central idea going forward.

Thanks for your thoughts.

DrukenReaps on Looking at doing 5-color aristocrats

And I think I'm looking at Atogatog , Child of Alara , Horde of Notions , or Reaper King . I know Orzhov or Golgari would be more streamlined but I'm doing all colors so that people can taste the pain-bow :P

Horde of Notions is somewhat limited being so focused on elementals. That is however a creature type that comes out in almost every set. This is an example of how that deck might look Endless Notions. Being able to instantly have some of those ETBs could make for some interesting plays.

Reaper King seems like the most restrictive to build around as I would be trying to abuse his interaction with scarecrows. Sadly most of those creatures are mediocre... It is being considered only because I like how he looks.

Atogatog comes with about 10 atogs that all act as sac outlets allowing the rest of the deck to be aristocrat value stuff. Might be the oddest choice as aristocrats is really creatures that die for value and this would be everything dies for value.

Child of Alara is an interesting thought... She acts as a mass sac outlet and kills my opponents stuff off at the same time. A little hard to abuse in this kind of deck but sac her with Viscera Seer let everything die triggering Zulaport Cutthroat and then bring it all back with Rise of the Dark Realms . Also this is the one that allows the most freedom in design.

Any thoughts or suggestions for 5-color aristocrats from y'all?
