Baral's Expertise Discussion

Darksch81 on Yidris, Cascade Lord

I've made some changes:

Added Chainer's Edict, Hunting Wilds, Ranger's Path, Sylvan Primordial, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, (soon Fierce Empath), Flametongue Kavu, Bring to Light, Cinder Glade, Eternal Witness


Explosive Vegetation, Artisan of Kozilek, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Rupture Spire, Gamekeeper, Simic Signet, Far Wanderings, Ancient Excavation, Frenzied Fugue

And the deck goes better. Sometimes I don't need to cast Commander because the deck works all alone like a mana ramp deck for big spells who can break game for their own.Leave some comments or suggestions for the deck. I'd like to add a Baral's Expertise or Rishkar's Expertise but I don't know how to remove

Oops forgot rev is limited to 2 power... Alright so we don't want to abuse the grave but we want to get a ton of stuff out and smash. I can work with that.

Fertilid, Zendikar Resurgent, Prismatic Omen, Cryptolith Rite- more mana for the mana hungry!

Rishkar's Expertise, Baral's Expertise- These are really good for getting ahead and staying ahead. The other 3 expertises might be good but have far fewer targets for cheating out. Yahenni's Expertise would probably be the only other one I would play since your stuff mostly lives.

Maelstrom Nexus, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder- more cheaty!

Flickerwisp, Panharmonicon, Conjurer's Closet- you have some solid etb triggers. could be fun to have them more often.

Tyrant of Discord, Tornado Elemental- some decent potential if a bit expensive, works well with etb abuse.

Dread- Why not punish people for hurting you?

Sylvan Reclamation, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End- great removal

Door of Destinies, Call to the Kindred, Mirror Entity, Urza's Incubator, Cryptic Gateway, or even any of the rest of these EDH Tribal Staples. Hopefully that is more helpful. Don't forget to go through the commander 2017 stuff I'm sure there will be some gems in it.

Until rotation Remorseless Punishment is pretty awesome for free. So is Baral's Expertise into another Wildfire Eternal

I played a similar deck at FNM, with similar results, winning 9 out of 15 games in 5 rounds (all 2/1 for, or against me). I did, however, leave out Unsummon (which marginally slows down both you and your opponent) and Baral's Expertise and added a play-set of Take Inventory. I left out Censor and played 3 Turn Aside, 3 Supreme Will and Mirrorpool instead of Insidious Will. I think that I prefer Insidious Will.

Not advice but more of an interaction question. Have you toyed with using like Baral's Expertise and the like to make sure your opponents hand is full with Fevered Visions? I like the list a lot and it looks like it would do pretty well, against like mono red right now the Fevered Visions seems like it would help them more than damage them regardless plus 1

aleister23 on Exodia, Obliterate!

Yeah i see your point. Its just that you need time to set up your alignment and against aggro (mainly zombies) i am not sure if you can hold long enough till you are rdy without more removal. I mean... You are black after all :-) and as much as i like drake heaven i am not sure for it as a viable alternative finisher here... But hey, let us know how it works out!

Btw saffronolive did an against the odds on it, its a little outdated, but maybe you find some ideas

If you want to stay blue and keep the engulfs, maybee use stuff like Just the Wind or Baral's Expertise or even Unsummon
