Autumn's Veil Discussion
6 days ago
Sideboarding dilutes the combo. It is actually not good to sideboard in this deck. Thanks for the suggestions though. Autumn's Veil or Guttural Response are better than Reverberate for countering the counters in these colors and now you know they exist.

In retrospect, I also can't imagine what I was thinking with Null Profusion - really only hits in artifact egg shells and Quirion Elves escapes me entirely. Might have been brewing 75% Rashmi at that point. Replace both ideas with Autumn's Veil and Imp's Mischief. Mishief has been doing so well since my meta is getting annoyingly competitive and I take so little damage and Veil is an all star in testing. I'd like to give another bump to Tireless Tracker, It and Prophet do so well at different stages that I can't justify one over the other. Would love to know your thoughts on a potential cut from somewhere else.

- Dosan the Falling Leaf - prevents casting on other player's turns
- Gaea's Herald - creatures can't be countered
- Leyline of Lifeforce - creature's can't be countered
- Price of Glory - destroy all lands tapped on other player's turns
- War's Toll - inhibits control strategies
- Choke - islands don't untap
- Autumn's Veil - practically protection from blue and black for one turn for all creatures
- Hammer Mage - artifact boardwipe every turn
- Viashino Heretic - targeted artifact removal every turn
- Molder Slug - hurts them more than it hurts you
- Vandalblast - a staple and for good reason
- Wave of Vitriol - kills all artifacts, and enchantments for good measure. Also ramps mana
- Arbor Colossus - large body with reach that can kill a flier

Autumn's Veil would go perfectly in here as a way to stick Sisay or Paradox Engine through counter spells (5 or 6 mana isn't so tough when you already needed 5, at minimum, to go off). I'd recommend adding it by dropping either:
Seton or Rishkar. You don't actually need both, as they're largely just for the third nonland mana source after the Moxen.
Mangara of Corondor. He just seems lackluster. Considering this deck is sorcery speed to go off, as well, he's not even abusable as a win condition, and I'd rather tutor up Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, etc., instead of one-time targeted removal, but this may be a meta call.
Aegis of the Gods. I'm... not actually sure what this is for. Most win combos in Commander don't target, so unless you're encountering a lot of targeted discard, I wouldn't think he is more valuable than, say, Containment Priest who stops Protean Hulk combos outright rather than letting them pull their entire library while you sit behind Aegis and then get killed via lethal damage or lose to Lab Man (assuming Breakfast Hulk).
Any one of those three could go to add Autumn's Veil in. Similarly, I do like attacking player's mana bases- Static Orb, Winter Orb, and the like, are very helpful because they don't really hurt you while you combo off while they can stop a Doomsday deck from building up enough mana to count to 6 pretty easily.
If you can't tell, I play versus a lot of decks where Sisay isn't the fastest deck at the table, as I play vs a lot of Flash Hulk, Food Chain, Ad Nauseam, etc., decks. So I tend to focus on slowing people down. If, however, that isn't something you have to worry about, feel free to ignore this.
Have fun, man, hope this helped.

I would drop a Stain the Mind for a Duress or Inquisition of Kozilek, if you don't want the seize. I'd also drop up a single Lead the Stampede main and sideboard, and move the last Nettle Sentinel mainboard, leaving you two spots in the side board. Autumn's Veil and Dismember, or just two Dismembers can be put in their place!

Well, Krosan Reclamation and Riftsweeper add a ton of protection for it, the worst thing is to counter the Dread Return, removal rarely matters, as the combo is fully instant speed. The hardest thing is if the remove Necrotic Ooze in response to the Blighted Bat trigger, in which you have to just activate it again for an extra mana to keep comboing out, if they do it in response to a Devoted Druid untap (the only other time), you need to just untap it in response, you can only do this one extra time though, or else it will die, so if they have two removal spells, it can hurt, but with Walking Ballista in the yard, you can respond with a +1/+1 counter if you have 4 mana open, and at that point you will have to at least netted one mana, so you only need 3 extra.
This means removal blanks against the combo almost every time. If they counter the Dread Return, Krosan Reclamation back Riftsweeper and Sensei's Divining Top. Remember, on endstep with Meren, you can toolbox your deck to go off again if you have at least 4 experience counters, or wait until your turn, if you draw Sensei's Divining Top, draw the Riftsweeper, to return Dread Return or Krosan Reclamation, and either go off when possible, use Meren to grind out a win, or bing back a Viscera Seer, so you can sacrifice Riftsweeper, after first shuffling in the Krosan Reclamation, and repeatedly shuffle in 4 cards from your graveyard into your library, and rebuild. This loop is extremely consistent.
Honestly, Hermit Druid is super consistent at protecting itself from most kinds of hate, that Riftsweeper loop even gets around most forms of graveyard hate! If you are still scared Autumn's Veil and Xantid Swarm can help out!

Personally I think Vines should be a 4 of and you should run Mutagenic Growth over Giant Growth in the main. I've played a little Infect myself and that extra 2 power when you're tapped out can be killer. I also think Choke is a much better sideboard option than Autumn's Veil, and Dismember should find its way into the mainboard somewhere, maybe cut a couple Plague Myr as I don't really see where the colorless mana helps you other than maybe to cast Become Immense. Dryad Arbor could be an option here too in place of a Forest.
