Baral's Expertise Discussion

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Pir and Toothy spell slinger

1 week ago

There's a couple more flicker effects that I don't see in your main or sideboard like Nephalia Smuggler / Displace / Illusionist's Stratagem / Deadeye Navigator and weird ones like Baral's Expertise and Supplant Form . And creatures that counter spells work well with blink like Frilled Mystic / Mystic Snake / Draining Whelk .

There's also Everflowing Chalice / Astral Cornucopia that work with Pir, and Thrummingbird / Skyship Plunderer that are basically magpies (with Toothy) and help the counter themes. Tel-Jilad Stylus / Crystal Shard / Lord of the Unreal helps with protecting Toothy. What do you think about Whirlpool Drake / Whirlpool Rider / Forgotten Creation / Teferi's Puzzle Box as an additional Alhammarret's Archive? Turbulent Dreams is a nice additional Cyclonic Rift. And why do you run no planeswalkers like Kiora, the Crashing Wave / Nissa, Vital Force / Garruk, Primal Hunter (they enter the battlefield and activate with an additional counter with Pir.

What do you think of Empyrial Plate / Thassa, God of the Sea / Words of Wilding / Sphinx's Tutelage / Psychic Corrosion / Key to the City as an extra wincon? I have my own deck (here)[http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-07-18-pirtoothy/?cat=type&sort=cost] and I'm considering if these are suboptimal.

Aaerys on Jhoira, Conqueror of Storms

Interesting concept, you have the draw sorted so I would possibly include Glint-Nest Crane to dig through the deck. Baral's Expertise also works a treat with aetherflux reservoir.

Definitely include Unwinding Clock and flash effects to make use of stuff like signets and artifact lands :) oooh and Mirrorworks damn that's awesome once you get it working right.

I would suggest looking at the decklist of Daretti the precon, it has good mono red artifact interaction. I'm building Sen Triplets with artifact interactions so if you like you can check my decklist here Masters of your Mind but it's in Esper haha

Good luck!

Title goes here Show

saj0219 great! That sounds good to me. I took another look, and I'd also love to trade a Baral's Expertise/Geist-Honored Monk if you have them. Again, no pressure! You have a sweet collection.

Otherwise, I'm good to go on RiP/SP/Q for ShuYun/Aurelia/Xathrid/(GHM)/(BE). Initiate trade whenever you're ready and I should be able to ship it off this weekend. Cheers!

Lazav is a super cool commander to build around and I like where you're going with the deck. However, you've got a really high average cmc with VERY little ramp. You've also got very little card draw in the two best colors for it.

Ramp:

Card Draw:

Removal:

Cards I'd take out:

  • Coercion - that's a lot of mana for EDH single target discard
  • Take Possession - 7 mana...

A good counterspell for this type of deck is Perplex.

If you're interested, I've got a Dimir Mill deck Oona, Queen of the Mill and an Esper 'steal your stuff' deck Sphinx-Demon-Wizard Tribal - Yennett that might be able to give you some more ideas. Also I think you have two copies of your commander in there?

PartyJ on Nicol Bolas, Lord of Specters

Hi, I never encountered or played with this commander yet.

But looking at what you are trying to do, I thought of these cards to consider:

  • Baral's Expertise : return stuff to your opponents hands and send Nicol Bolas back to yours as well, then casting him for free and getting an ETB trigger again. Sweetness!
  • Nephalia Smuggler : repeatable blink to use on your commander each turn.
  • Conjurer's Closet : free blink for your commander at the end of your turn.
  • Deadeye Navigator : repeatable ETB discard triggers from Nicol Bolas.
  • Panharmonicon : double the discard trigger of your commander.
  • Training Grounds : Good value for this deck!

Hope I gave you something interesting to think about...

Good luck! Check out my favorite EDH deck here.

Thanks!
