Amphin Pathmage Discussion

DragonFaceEater on Master of Cascade (Yidris)

1 year ago

I'd recommend some evoke creatures. If you evoke them, it counts as casting the spell and the original CMC, but you pay much less than it. Other cards that have reduced CMC like avatars and Delve creatures are good too. Some of the ones I'd recommend are AEthersnipe, with decent removal with six CMC, Avatar of Might, since with your low amount of creatures the condition will almost always be met, plus an 8/8 trample for GG and an 8 CMC will be able to end games pretty easily and hopefully cascade into an extra turn effect or similar and kill someone right off the bat, Avatar of Woe is a sweet repeatable removal spell, again for just BB considering most of the time by late-ish game you'll have that condition met, and Mulldrifter, a staple even not in yidris decks. Also, cards that give your yidris double strike or hard to block can help get oyur yidris to hit more often, and sometimes more than once, giving your cards double cascade. Cards like Psychotic Fury, Temur Battle Rage, Uncaged Fury, Assault Strobe, Runes of the Deus, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Sangrite Surge and Rage Reflection all grant double strike, and Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde, Relentless Assault, Seize the Day, and World at War all grant an additional combat. Aqueous Form, Shimmering Wings, Slip Through Space, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, and Amphin Pathmage all make your yidris harder to block so you can get triggers more easily.

Faceless_Being on Razaketh and Rakshasa on Kaladesh

Razaketh looks more reptilian-ish in my opinion. His skin texture doesn't look like that of Rakshasa Deathdealer or the art on Rakshasa's Disdain but more smooth and scaly like the texture of Amphin Pathmage's skin.

Belzenlok seems more likely to make a debut in Kaladesh due to his appearance imo



kengiczar on Sygg, River Cutthroat the previously ...

@ hfvalenz - I've tried Indulgent Tormentor many times but he never worked out in other decks. BUT he didn't synergize with those generals and there was a Keranos, God of Storms EDH player running rampant at the time. For a Sygg deck he basically reads "draw an extra card each turn". He is an excellent Lieutenant for Sygg.

The Amphin Pathmage feels a little costly for what it does but as I don't want to invest a ton of money into this right away I'll try him out to. I also like the Hissing Miasma and Angel's Trumpet but feel as though I will only take one. Probably the Miasma I'm not sure yet.

@ Omeros - Thanks for reminding me of these cards. I have a Tezzeret the Seeker who can tutor up either Sword of Light and Shadow or Darksteel Plate so Pestilence is a good call.

im_addicted_to_izzet on Shu yun's slip-slappin budget beatdown

2 years ago

Sorry it's here Tiny Tempest

a) I don't think that you'll find your self playing Strength of Arms for the 1/1 most of the time, you probably already know that

B) I would remove Amphin Pathmage since there are many spells that can make creatures unblockable, for less mana, and trigger prowess.

C) Why do you have so much enchantment hate? Your main focus should be playing lots of spells that will let you get through the with your creatures for a lot of damage

AliceInQuantumland on Budget help for shu yun

Monastery Swiftspear and Akroan Crusader would be good replacements for Bloodmad Vampire and Amphin Pathmage. Revoke Existence is better than Terashi's Grasp unless you aim for lifegain. You don't have enough Equiments for Strength of Arms so try to replace it with another heroic creature of your choice.

Karzalar on Vorel's Hydra Ramp

I don't know if it's because you want to make it budget (if that's the case, well done! 60$ is pretty good budget for a commander) but there's a LOT of cards that could be switched.

Let's start with creatures (and to switch to better alternatives) :

Amphin Pathmage -> Thassa, God of the Sea : Indestructible enchantment for 3 mana, can become an indestructible creature with devotion, and has the same effect as the pathmage. And you can scry!

Battlefront Krushok -> Nylea, God of the Hunt : Yet again an indestructible enchantment that gives trample and buff creatures.

Caller of Gales -> Levitation : I know, that's an enchantment, but that's the effect you want. Coralhelm Guide -> Wingcrafter : Gives good evasion.

Dirgur Nemesis -> Khalni Hydra : Since you want more hydras for your commander.

Gladehart Cavalry -> Mistcutter Hydra : Uncounterable hydra.

Living Totem -> Oran-Rief Hydra : Another hydra.

Noble Quarry -> Gyre Sage : Evolving mana rock!

Siren of the Fanged Coast -> Control Magic : Because people will anyway pay the tribute : it's easier to remove a 4/4 flying that to comeback from having your commander stolen, in most cases.

Now, let's continue with non-creature spells :

I'd remove Culling Mark, Epic Confrontation, Hunt the Weak, Incremental Growth, Predatory Rampage, Wild Instincts, Mutant's Prey, Curse of the Bloody Tome, Sheltered Aerie, Verdant Haven and Slip Through Space.

That makes 11 cards to add some kind of removal effects that are better than ''target creature fights another target crature'' because a Pacifism effect can screw you over.

I'd suggest some of these cards : Beast Within, Krosan Grip, Disperse, Cyclonic Rift, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Kiora's Follower (Untap your commander to double the effect!), Kiora, Master of the Depths, Boomerang, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Capsize, Vapor Snag, Into the Roil, Repeal...

If you want some more suggestions, i'd be glad to help.
