Bazaar of Baghdad Discussion

Yeah it is scary and easier than it has any right to be to cast it on turn one with this deck. Out of curiosity which method got you there? Paradox Engine, a bunch of rocks, hasty Metalworker, or infinite turn one mana?

Thanks for the compliment some people do not understand how fast it is. (It is more like 25 lands one of those doesnt make mana; luckily it helps you dig for it though which is its job.Bazaar of Baghdad) You are right about early couterspell being a possible issue. The clocks paired with Null Brooch, being faster than an opponent can counter, and having backup rocks you can still afford to cast are its only way through it. Even a blue deck most of the time wants to play something on turn 1 and 2 to set up for better control in the next turns or set up a combo so you basically have to hope you are too fast to stop. I did put in everything else I could think of for protection though like Torpor Orb, Erratic Portal, and Darksteel Forge. If you have any ideas for better protection let me know but instant speed protection is not really a thing colorless does well.

Thanks for the quick response!

Can you tell me if there are any combos I am overlooking for Mimeo himself or if he is just there to represent Sultai colors? Any information about notable excludes would be great too. I picked up this deck with the exception of a few things like Bazaar of Baghdad, Underground Sea, and Tropical Island and I am just wondering if there are a few notable excludes that I could play over somethings outside of my price point. For example I own a copy of Diabolic Intent and I don't currently have a copy of Grim Tutor. One last thing I am curious about is how the FlashHulk string works without the inclusion of Phyrexian Delver.

Thank you for your time and the deck list!

If you really want him to have no fun, consider adding a stax subtheme, with cards like Static Orb, Winter Orb, or Overburden soon he'll be having no fun at all.

And if you really want to make it obnoxiously clear you're playing with proxies, consider highly priced cards like Gaea's Cradle, Bazaar of Baghdad, or Liliana of the Veil

Have fun!

hello ShaperSavant,

i was searching for reanimator decks to seek input and other ideas so i found this and its a very synergistic deck you have. especially the animate loops in white i wasnt aware of. maybe you have some critique or input about my deck: Minus Ten - Dragon Hulk as i have kinda come to an deckbuilding end. i dont know how to improve or what to change for the better but think i have some nice synergies and overlapping combopieces too.

about your deck: have you tested Bazaar of Baghdad? my expirience with it so far has been amazing in reanimator decks that are on the faster type of builds.

What's the replacement for Bazaar of Baghdad? I'm inclined to say Homeward Path. I support pretty much all your recent changes, by the way.

Additionally, no-one has a problem with the list, only a few cards on it (couldn't finish this point earlier); besides duals and power 9, there are few cards that are needed in more copies and are more than 100 dollars:

RL by price

  1. Transmute Artifact - more tutors in commander.
  2. Wheel of Fortune - more wheels in commander. (really, more than 100?)
  3. City of Traitors - bought out after eldrazi realese, needed in legacy.
  4. Lion's Eye Diamond - key piece of any Eternal storm deck.
  5. Mox Diamond - not a bad mox, but few applications in Legacy. 150+ range:
  6. Gaea's Cradle - elves in Legacy and commander applications.
  7. Natural Selection - really? some commander stuff I guess.

300+ range (aka more expensive than blue duals):

  1. Eureka - bad Hypergenesis is still a thing in a single Legacy deck. Could be good for Commander.
  2. Copy Artifact - Commander stuff and fringe Vintage applications.

Holy sheet range:

  1. Mishra's Workshop - 1 vintage deck.
  2. Candelabra of Tawnos - 1 legacy deck.
  3. The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale - a couple of legacy decks.
  4. Bazaar of Baghdad - 1 vintage deck.

So, including power 9 and duals there are a total of 32 cards (and Eureka is quite suspect it should be on the list) I could identify that could have any applications. Most of them are limited to 1-2 decks in any format they are currently legal in.

The reserved list has 500+ cards. If more widely available, these cards would likely be banned or restricted even further.

Tl;DR Less than 30 out of 550 cards on the RL are actually prohibitively expensive, and of those most are playable now in any format in 1 or less copies.

  1. came here because i was browsing land-destruction decks and boros is always a challenging and hard to master edh i klicked without hope to see a tight or optimized list but was still curious.

  2. the awesome alters are the first things to get me focused on. wow thats my style especially as i dont like akiri's and bruse's astetics. now i think yeah thats where your intuition send you... but i still wanted to look at the deck.

  3. i turn on the music for more enjoyment while looking at the list.

  4. finally - a tight boros list. i'm so surprised to see all this together. MLD, sweet art and a tight manacurve.

  5. do i have anything to add? dont think so. i liked Bazaar of Baghdad in my mono-white deck to turn the landfetchers into digging-machines but i see you have red filtering here and moons turn it off anyway.
