Alhammarret's Archive

Legendary Artifact

If you would gain life, you gain twice that much life instead.

If you would draw a card except the first one you draw in each of your draw steps, draw two cards instead.

Alhammarret's Archive Discussion

Dragonz60 on Bruna's Light of Ressurection

21 hours ago

So here's my opinion. Keep in mind that it is just an opinion. If I were to build a Gisela and Bruna EDH deck, I would go for a voltron style, and use Gisela as my commander. She is stronger in combat and cheaper. Just buff her with some enchantments and equipment and try to burst my opponents down with 21 commander damage. Also run some card draw to get more buffs and hopefully draw Bruna for the meld trigger. Good card draw includes Alhammarret's Archive, Mesa Enchantress, and Sage's Reverie. Also maybe run Tamiyo's Journal to tutor for Bruna

Quietman988 on LOCUSTS??!!

I Love it!Lot more combos than my Locust deck, but im glad to see someone else getting a head start on this badass as well. I may steal a few ideas from you.My suggestions though would be
Training Grounds to make his rummage cheaper. Thought Reflection because duh. Mind Unbound can get big fast. Consecrated Sphinx is a must here. Windreader Sphinx is basically a token doubler in this deck. Alhammarret's Archive and Font of Mythos for double draw.

and the keyrunes and cluestones are great ramp that double as draw outlets when you need them.

Imaris on Breya in the kitchen

I had a big card supply recently, so let's rebuild the deck.

out Saheeli RaiRS

out Felidar GuardianRS

This was wincon "just because I can" and "why not". It even worked sometimes. Separately these cards are not much useful (though I've played the last Saheeli's ability several times and won with another combos), especially considering they are not artifacts and cannot be tutored by Arcum Dagsson or protected by Darksteel Forge and Padeem. So, in order to add many new cards I decided to pick off this combo. I wouldn't want to take it far away though.

out Sanctum Gargoyle

out Chromatic StarRS

out Alhammarret's ArchiveRS

out Junk Diver

out Filigree Sages

out Shimmer Myr

Some of these cards I'll maybe return later.

in Planar BridgeRS

in Paradox EngineRS

in Vedalken Orrery

Finally I got 'em!

The bridge makes a combo with Unwinding Clock (and sometimes with Clock of Omens) while I have a lot of mana artifacts. I can tutor a permanent onto the battlefield every turn - my and each of my opponent's. I can search for a combo, or I can just make fun and search for different interesting artifacts. With Vedalken Orrery I could do almost all other things (except for activating Planeswalkers abilities and attacking) in the end of every opponent's turn (or in response, of course). It comes instead of Shimmer Myr, because he's much more vulnerable and doesn't let me to cast noncreature spells as instants. The ability cost is quite expensive and can hardly be activated as the Bridge comes into play, but I hope the Bridge combo or the Bridge itself will work as I imagine it to myself =)

in Wrath of God

in Damnation

in Supreme Verdict

The second thing I wanted to add to my deck. Just mass removal spells.

The problem is that I can't just clean the table in the turn I need it. And I need it - since I make random-turn-combos, not war. Nevinyrral's Disk and Scourglass are very slow - the Disk enters tapped (though it can be untapped by Clock of Omens, Tezzeret the Seeker , or even using Time Sieve), Scourglass can be used only during my upkeep. I also would like to put Oblivion Stone in the deck as I get this card, but it just too mush mana-expensive to immediately blow up the table. Finally, the Disk and the Stone destroy my own noncreature artifacts, which is unpleasant. So, I decided to add several spells of this sort. Just to destroy all creatures - now.

in Metalworker

Let's see how this strongly-required-in-artifacts-deck card will work.

in Vedalken Archmage

That was the only card I found that allows to draw cards for casting an artifact or for the artifact ETB trigger.

out Nomad Outpost

out Sequestered StashRS (I can hardly remember I played this land's ability)

out Rupture Spire (I just hate this card! Enters tapped and eats one mana...)

out Island

in Misty Rainforest

in Flooded Strand

in Blood CryptRS

in Steam VentsRS

I'm thinking about lands too. I've also got Windswept Heath, but at the moment I have only one white dual land (Prairie Stream), so I should gather more shocklands before.Oh, it's quite hard to think what land I need to tutor with the fetchland, considering I have only several shocks in the deck... I always forget what lands are in the deck now.

HezTheGod on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

sonnet666 seems like that's a fine infinite mana dump in the command zone (although colored) I think she is probably tier 3 though because having that effect is powerful and game ending.

Similarly, what do you think about Arjun, the Shifting Flame + Alhammarret's Archive/ Paradox Engine Isochron Scepter storm? arjun helps with both storm effects for Aetherflux Reservoir and has an infinite combo which will draw your entire deck and win though Laboratory Maniac

I have a budgetless version that I put together. After a few playtests I'm sure you'll agree he's above tier 4 and is probably comfortably tier 2.5.Arjun, Flame on!

sonnet666 on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

I've been very distracted about my newfound responsibilities here I'm just going to go up the list a little:

RivenVII, Fixed Narset link, and I'm not sure what list you're looking at, but Garta's list doesn't mention anything about partial paris in the description. The opposite, actually.

Anyway, I'm keeping his list because I like his primer and how Approach of the Second Sun streamlines the deck's win condition and his explanation of how it's used.

merrowMania, Ohthenoises, Lilbrudder, & chaosumbreon87: Moved Circu, Dimir Lobotomist to T3 and added chaosumbreon87's deck in the description. His synergy with Dramatic Scepter is pretty clear cut, and chaosumbreon87's list looks good enough to have up for now. (Although, I recommend shifting the mana base more toward blue, my playtests were giving me too many swamps I didn't need with the even split you have right now. Also Time Spiral?)

BestKeptSecret, If you think your Sram list is competitive you could link it here if you want. Our current list doesn't run Alhammarret's Archive, and personally I think that's an oversight.

Ohthenoises, I don't think Ramunap is going to effect Titania that much since Crucible was never really a plan A for the deck, but it's definitely going to be a good addition.

Also, I'm pretty sure that I'm the only one who's posted a Titania list here, so I'll probably figure out where Ramuna goes and put that up soon. (I've also discovered some interesting combo potential with her and Drownyard Temple recently, which could be cool.)

Scyxx, The Commander 2017 legends have not been added to the site yet because they were leaks. When they're added they'll go on here. EVERYBODY ELSE: Remind me what placement was agreed on for them. I was thinking:

  • Wasitora - T3
  • O-Kagachi - T3
  • Ur-Dragon - T4
  • Ramos - T2.5 (? - There was a lot of discussion on him, did anyone come up with anything solid?)
  • Taigam - T2.5 (We need to come up with something here too.)

Ohthenoises: Phenax has actually been a pet project of mine for a while now. I'm convinced that he could make an excellent combo deck that uses self-mill & the yard to see pieces more consistently. Haven't really got it off the ground though. As to your question, most Phenax decks run Undead Alchemist and Altar of the Brood already since they combo with other cards.

Hi Brewstorm! I really like your Arcanis list. It's seems straightforward and powerful. I've added it to the description since TheDevicer seems to have taken his list private or deleted it. (No offense meant TheDevicer! Unfortunately, I never got a chance to view your Arcanis deck, so right now I don't have anything to compare to. If you feel your deck still deserves a shot, then you can feel free to resubmit.)

HezTheGod, Though I think your deck looks just like every other Izzet storm deck ever, it's easy to see how Mindmoil in the command zone is helpful in the archetype. Moved Arjun to T3, added your deck to the description.

ajacobik, There's been a lot of talk about Erebos in cEDH lately. I know there's a good deck up on Reddit. I gotta say, having played against a friend's Erebos deck extensively, I'm little skeptical, but I'm aware he's gaining popularity and he might move up.

SIDBJJ, That list looks very good. I'll throw it up on List of Partner Pairs by Tier. I do think you have room to keep improving though, n0bunga was giving good advice about colored mana combos, Grand Architect and Pili-Pala are a creature and an artifact creature, which gives you much better reception to blue/green's tutor profile. Also, I'm not too sold on Tooth and Nail into Deadeye even with Kydele's ramp, that combo tends to be outmoded nowadays in cEDH. You're definitely off to a great start though, so keep at it. I don't think too many other people are brewing Thrasios/Kydele right now.

chaosumbreon87, Added your Kefnet list. The others didn't really stand out to me (or are too soon to call like Ramos and Taigam). Left you some comments on the other ones.


Other changes:

So long as there are no objections I'm going to make some changes that I've been harping on since forever:

I'd also like peoples opinions on whether the following commanders that were demoted to T3 before the advent of .5 tiers should be given the opportunity to move to T2.5:

Another thing I'd like people's opinions on: promoting Savra, Queen of the Golgari to T3. After playtesting this deck: Hapatra Vizier of Apostles, by HarroHunter I was pleasantly surprised to see how fast and efficient Thrumming Stone+Shadowborn Apostle could be in EDH, especially with one or two other G/B combos to back it up. As I told HarroHunter, I didn't think the deck had enough to do with Hapetra to be representative of her, but I do think the list itself has merit, and it seemed to me like the most logical G/B commander to run it would be Savra, as she'd give you scaleable creature sweep with the Apostles. What does everybody think? With this list in mind, could Savra move up?

Last thing that's been brought up is the possibility of a name change to make the title of this list more coherent. Would anyone be bothered if I changed this list's name from "[List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier" to "List of All Commanders in Multiplayer by Tier" ?


This is only about half of what I planned on addressing, but Imma take a break now since this comment is really long and I'm losing my mind.

LTmiller on The Legendary Storm

Okay so this deck works around the mana dorks, my commander and Paradox Engine. Using my commander to fetch out my legendary creatures that are also coincidentally hate bears. Cards like Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Gaddock Teeg, etc. serve a particular purpose in the deck to shutdown or slow down other particular kinds of decks. Using a couple mana dorks and cards like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds allow me to make a bunch of mana and sisay allows me to fetch up cards like Reki, History of Kamigawa and Alhammarret's Archive to ensure that I can continue my combo. It's super fun, as I can win via the stax route or through a convoluted combo that leaves my opponents only able to cast creature cards with cmc greater than 4 and making sure that they are taxed hard.
