Beautiful. Shared Animosity is the unsung hero of this build. Since we’re already running expensive rocks and the like we could upgrade to Snow covered mountainss with Extraplanar Lens and Gauntlet of Might, but I’m sure you already know that. Battle Hymn would do us very well. As for new sh$t, Terror of the Peaks would do you very well and yet be hilariously underutilized (I kno how u <3 #jank). Also, Furnace of Rath (now I’m just spitting your own flavors back at you). final though: I don’t look forward to playing this deck.

Pikobyte on Goodbyris from Xyris

I just wondered why mill in combination with effects that shuffle all players graveyards back into the library like whirlpool warrior or echo of aeons seemed like and odd combination.

I ditched the mill subtheme on my Xyris since it didn’t do enough for my liking. Try to play cards like Battle Hymn or Xenagos, the Reveler, they give you a massive boost

Massacar on Mono Red Tips (Value, Ramp) ...

Basically all red draw requires a discard. Expedite is one exception. Red tends to handle draw through exiling the top of your library and giving you the ability to play those cards for a turn or two like what Etali does.

As for (mana) ramping: Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, Rite of Flame, Seething Song, Simian Spirit Guide, Runaway Steam-Kin, Battle Hymn

Pikobyte on Xyris, Terror of Airships

2 weeks ago

Heya, I got around 110-120 games with my Xyris so far. After a few games I moved away from the grouphug stuff since that doesn’t work too well. I would add Battle Hymn since that one goes infinite with any red discard wheel and underworld breach. Same is true for Phyrexian Altar but that one goes also infinite with your blue discard wheels. You should also add more protection in form of Diplomatic Immunity or Spellskite since Xyris is quite a good target for removal. Instant protection doesn’t work well here really because you can’t save them up in your hand for the moment you need it. Tidal Barracuda stops removals and counters during your turn, Whirlpool Warrior is another nice and cheap wheel to play. Teferi's Ageless Insight is quite helpful for drawing into another wheel. If you reach a critical amount of wheel effects (around 12-14) the deck really starts to take off and wins the turn after Xyris hits the field. My deck plays Xyris frequently turn 3, turn 2 of you’re lucky and wins the turn after if if you got one of the 5 cards that allow you to produce mana for your creatures, or any tutor to get them into your hand. Feel free to take a look at my list, it looked a lot like yours first but has changed a lot during extensive testing

Pikobyte on Wheel With It Evolved Xyris EDH

I recommend Battle Hymn and Xenagos, the Reveler to get mana for your creatures. This allows you to play multiple wheels per turn and really go off. That’s how my deck works. There are more options but they tend to be more pricey like Earthcraft, cradle or Phyrexian Altar. Feel free to take a look at my deck if you want to look for some upgrades

Pikobyte on Xyris Machine Gun

Heya, love your videos. Excited to see you play Xyris since I fell in love with it. I just have a few suggestions to improve the deck. Cards like Battle Hymn, Phyrexian Altar, Xenagos, the Reveler and especially Earthcraft generate insane amounts of mana from your wheels and allow you to chain wheels together and dig for a wincon. They do massiv work for me in my Xyris deck and make the deck play storm-like. Feel free to take a look at my list and description, maybe you find some new toys to play with. Would love to see some of that stuff in future videos :-)

Pikobyte on Xyris, the Writhing Storm

Cards that produce mana for your tokens work extremely well in my Xyris. Battle Hymn or Xenagos, the Reveler are cheap ones, there are more expensive options like Earthcraft or Phyrexian Altar too. Feel free to check my list to get an idea. It runs extremely well and explosive so far

Some really good suggestions - thanks! I like Burn at the Stake, and Impact Tremors. I had a Dogpile laying around and threw it in, but a more concerted effort with direct damage via Convoke is a good way to go. I have a number of X spells, so will think on Battle Hymn.

I like Soulblast as a sneaky counter to a board wipe.

Impact Tremors reminds me of what I built into a Marchesa deck I have. It's F-ing amazing how much damage a card like that can do in a 40 pt game.

So now I just have to figure out what I want to jetison.
