Akiri, Line-Slinger Discussion

ZendikariWol on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

6 days ago

I actually LOVE playing Zurgo as a political piece. My fav voltron is kinda tough to say, but Tana, the Bloodsower with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa or Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Silas Renn, Seeker Adept , all good partner combos.

But honestly? The slot for my favorite voltron commander, if only it were legendary, is easily Cephalid Constable . This desperately underrated card should, in my opinion, appear in any voltron deck that can run it. I have ended so many games with this card and a good ol' Aether Tunnel . Throw some pump enchantments on that baby and watch 'em all concede.

DiverDown on 4C Yisan

Really like the deck concept and it looks like a blast to pilot. Except I can't help but think Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is an odd commander choice since he doesn't contribute much to the overall strategy aside from just being in the desired colors. Might I suggest Akiri, Line-Slinger? The ability might not be very relevant, but wouldn't it contribute faster mana to ramp and combo off with Bloom Tender?

I assume your strategy is to fetch Bloom Tender with Yisan, then verse 3 into Village Bell-Ringer and untapping to verse 4 with Yisan and grab Felidar Guardian, blink Bell Ringer with the Guardian, and you get to untap again to verse 5 into Kiki-Jiki to copy the Guardian and attack with infinite cats, correct? I honestly think Akiri is considerably a better fit in here to fulfill that role of netting you faster mana with Bloom Tender for this reason alone which outclasses Bruse Tarl in this sort of list, unless he is contributing something else in here that I'm just neglecting to see. Overall though, great list! +1

AdvancedSteelGuard on cEDH!!

Wurmlover it's great to finally see someone paying attention to the topic before anwsering the question.

As for my usual play styles in other format here's the "list" I was able to come up with.

Sealed (pre-release/draft) : I always try to find the early rush in my packs. Jumping to my opponents throat before they can even make a move.

Standard : I use to play a dino deck with Ghalta, Primal Hungers and other big ass dino and be super aggressive.

Edh (sort of casual) : I'm the invisible player, the one that if you forgets and don't pay attention to me I'll slit your throat before you can even blink (yeah i know nasty type of decks). After a few turn in the shadows I'll either mill them to death or pull a 12/12 infect with Blade of Selves out of nowhere and otk everyone(keeping a few counter spells in case). Only one of my decks is a beat face equipment deck with Akiri, Line-Slinger // Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder at the helm.

Hope that helps

Hello, TheErebos. Someone suggested to you about a certain thing; but I'm unsure if you'd agree w/ my cause...

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Yep. cEDH Boros. I was using Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, switched to Aurelia, the Warleader, & now Partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. My deck is based on three archetupes: Value Town, Stax, & Prison (Though that might just be another part of Stax.). I wonder if you are interested in this kind of thing; I believe Boros can win w/o going Aggro at all. I intend to try & bring these (& potentially Aurelia 1) to Tier 3. While there are things lack in some ways, I believe they can improve on such ideas in their own way...

Also, I wonder how one can Break Parity, & what Parity even is. I just wonder if these are the right CMDRs for this... (Both are on at least Tier 4.) What options would you recommend for this; given I have stuff that Combos out (Eldrazi Displacer, Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan, Potentially many others.), & stuff that locks down opponents Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Icy Manipulator, Grafdigger's Cage, Ashes of the Abhorrent, Stranglehold, Kismet, among many others all apply here. What do you think might be a better combo for Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric than Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool? What do you think is best here for reaching CMC 2 or less here? Also, would Village Bell-Ringer + Smoke help here? Finally, this'll sound stupid, but I'm thinking of a Design for a Partner Commander Related Mat; but I dunno how to make it GP/Pro Tour Legal. Ideas, if any?

I'm a cEDH player, you can take a look at the type of decks I build that are competitive and can see whether I match the standard or not. I do know Boros is currently not even at the High Power tier, but I love going against all odds and brainstorming and committing to finding a way to "optimize" a deck towards a High Level.

As for your questions, I didn't mention four themes, but two as to lower the cmc cost to a playable route where stax is viable and you can break parity with it. Infinite combat might be hard to proc as it does require a bit of investment and it is clearly telegraphed. Now that I think about it, a more viable route would be the partners Akiri, Line-Slinger/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. It gives you more flexibility and can apply pressure, while adding in value creatures that doesn't stop you.

I can brainstorm a sample deck list and we can go off from there, I am tad bias with Aurelia as in our meta we have a tuned infinite combat Aurelia, however it is OHKO/equipment based with a Sunforger package.

I can give a sample list of stax cards I would run as well, but the main goal for me is to help other players achieve their ideas and goals. You can also ask TheErebos about this as I love helping to tune other people's decks :P

Hexaflexagon on Looking for a non-Blue Artifact ...

Even though artifacts aren't my playstyle, I suggest Akiri, Line-Slinger as you can partner it with commanders like Ravos, Soultender to create some weird artifact creature engines.

Good Luck!

Additionally, partners are cool - Akiri, Line-Slinger with Tymna the Weaver looks like a cool combo for a Mardu artifact deck.

CaptSillva on Legitimacy: The Treasure of Politics

Here are a few cards you could consider for your Sunforger Package Crackling Doom, Kolaghan's Command, Hide / Seek, Wear / Tear, and Utter End.

Steelshaper's Gift and Relic Seeker are both really cost effective ways to get the equipment you're looking for. You could also run Masterwork of Ingenuity to double up on a good equipment.

Brass Squire is a cheap way to get past equipment costs.

Akiri, Line-Slinger, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, and Swiftblade Vindicator are cheap minions that hold weapons very well.
