Agriyon on Kaervek - Slowly Whittling Away

1 month ago

Nice deck list. I've been looking at making a Kaervek punish deck since I've turned my old Rakdos suicide deck into a tribal demon deck. Some of my favorite cards form that deck were Manabarbs, Citadel of Pain, Havoc Festival, Sulfuric Vortex, Spellshock, Planar Chaos, Storm Cauldron, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ankh of Mishra, Angel's Trumpet, Mass Hysteria, Grand Melee, Avatar of Slaughter, Avarice Amulet, Spiteful Visions, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Temple Bell, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Geier Reach Sanitarium. I love Toxic Deluge in my suicide deck as a board wipe. If you're looking for more pay life to kill creatures there's also Phyrexian Purge, Fire Covenant, Slaughter, Hellfire, and Ashes to Ashes as well as Repay in Kind which helps brings opponent down to your level after hurting yourself. Possibility Storm could be a nice inclusion as well if it works the way I think it does with Kaervek. Opponent casts a spell and both Kaervek and Possibility Storm trigger, the spell gets exiled and if your opponent plays the other card with Possibility Storm then Kaervek will trigger again.

I love Thieves' Auction. It is one of my wincons in Zo-Zu the Punisher. Him and Ankh of Mishra are great as well since you don't have to be the one to control them after the auction like other cards like Roil Elemental or Omnath, Locus of Rage might.

Calyptic on Darien, King of Kjeldor

2 months ago

I like this deck! A mono-white Darien was actually the first good EDH deck I ever built, and on tapped out. Unfortunately i retired it due to my preference for a Mono-Red Goblin swarm as opposed to a Mono-White Soldier Swarm, though the latter definitely has goblins beat in the Lifegain department. So my deck on TappedOut is outdated but here

I would recommend Anointer Priest if you have interest in another ETB lifegainer, the more you have, the more threatening it is when your commander is out, and don't be afraid once your Commander is out to deal damage to yourself through certain affects such as Ankh of Mishra or, and I can't believe you didn't slide this in here but Blasting Station. With your commander and two 1-Life ETB cards, or your Healer of the Pride, you can give yourself Infinite Life.

With all your available tokens you should have Collective Effort might be a good sorcery to slide in there. Also a must-have in a Soldier deck is Conqueror's Pledge and Launch the Fleet if your focus is token production.

Finally, for lands, Kabira Crossroads is a rarity and will gain you 2 life instead of the usual 1 that those kind of lands offer. Mistveil Plains is also nice if your opponent is dishing out alot of removal.

Have fun!

The IB deck is a lot of fun to play. I added Kusari-Gama thinking that it could work but I then found out through play testing that as soon as I sacrifice the creature, the equipment falls off and then damage is delt but I can still trigger it as long as Shared Animosity is pumping my creatures enough to board wipe.

But in my meta there are a lot of Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Rafiq of the Many, Captain Sisay. Just heavy counter/bounce magic, board wipes, and wheels. IB does kill at least one person in a 4 man pod but I die almost immediately afterwards. My board state (when I kill that one person) usually has Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin King/Goblin Warchief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Blood Moon, Mana Web, Price of Glory, and Shared Animosity. I am very much still pleased with the deck. Just giving feed back as to what types of meta it has a hard time with (if you don't already know).

I did have a huge favor to ask of you. I love death and taxes style decks. If you swing at me we both lose stuff but you will lose more. I run Shattergang Brothers and it can be mean. I just want a new deck that mimics death and taxes. I have my eyes set on Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, and Darien, King of Kjeldor. But a Daretti, Scrap Savant deck would be awesome! I know those decks are mono colored but I am not only wanting mono colors, it just happened like that.

I was also thinking that I want to do a artifact heavy, deals damage based off cards target player has in hand over or under a certain amount like...The Rack, Ankh of Mishra, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Jinxed Idol, Jinxed Ring, Mask of Intolerance, Thumbscrews, Scalding Tongs, Iron Maiden, Misers' Cage just to name a few hahaha, massive card draw. No real intent to win through combat damage but maybe taking an extra turn or mass artifact over run. I would like my commander to be someone who can consistantly put out artifacts and so I have picked Muzzio, Visionary Architect or Padeem, Consul of Innovation (unless you know of one better). I am sorry this comment is this long. Thank you for all the help...

You can't have Knight of the Reliquary in here. Have you considered Ankh of Mishra? It punishes decks with heavy land ramp while giving you soldiers.

Fiftyshotzlater on Nicolopolis

I'm not a mjor fan of a lot of the choices you have made with this deck. I even went and watched the youtube video and some of your logic for cards in this deck are just sorta meh. A full discard theme with Nicol Bolas isn't a bad way to go don't get me wrong but again some choices here just don't feel justified. You have a ton of wheel effects but any graveyard recursion decks will be able to take full advantage of this. So I feel you should be running Leyline of the Void. And I feel you should drop the scarb god (yes there is def flavor there which I know you were also going with but with so many wheel effects his cost along with the price of his ability will be putting you behind.

Ankh of Mishra just flat out needs to be dropped. You will reap these effects almost as much as anyone else since you have so many wheel effects. You are better off running either Obelisk of Grixis or Darksteel Ingot instead. The latter is probably the better choice as it is indestructible. Disciple of Bolas should also be dropped as you have no effects to gain control of your opponents creatures and will then be sacing one of you own to get that life and card draw. If you wanted to keep him then you should be running more effects like Slave of Bolas. Should also see about running some form of recursion yourself with cards like Psychic Spiral or commit//memory.

As I have seen others mention, for bolas to get the discard effect it just has to be damage not combat damage. So things like Dragon Tempest or Warstorm Surge give bolas a whole lot more deadlier options for an opponents hand. Consider running Chandra's Ignition to help with something like that, pseudo board wipe and mas hand discard!

If interested on a variation of Nicol Bolas which is by far my favorite deck to play check mine out at http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/nicol-bolas-god-pharaoh-3/

There have been some changes since and haven't updated but that is the basic run of the deck (also a lot of flavor) in which a lot of people have said I play this deck as if Nicol Bolas himself were playing!

What was good

  • Ankh of Mishra is just amazing as an early drop against bounce and fetch lands, which most multicolor decks run.
  • Zo-Zu the Punisher was a pleasent surprise, even as a 3-drop - same reasoning as text above and if you can clear the way he is delivers some damage as well
  • Creature to instant/sorcery ratio and the curve seems perfectly fine, with only a few games with a "bad hand", but still winnable.
