Jagg3r5 on Advice Needed! Shaman Tribal

1 day ago

I agree with Firebones675, you've got a good thing going, but right now your still a bit scattered as to what your deck works around. You don't have the strongest token generation, recursion, or entry/exit abilities in general because as he stated, shamans are more of a jack of all trades than a specialist. To make them a truly dangerous you're going to have to think outside the box. Pulling the allies and working in some other options is something I would highly advise.

I would also suggest pulling Dragon's Herald and Hellkite Overlord, as the Herald serve's only one purpose and has a decent chance of being a dead draw; the overlord, while potentially devastating, is still relatively vulnerable and his high cost (regardless of whether he's hard cast or brought out with the Herald) of mana or creatures makes the rare situation where you get him out turn 3 or 4 not worth it. This is just my opinion though, so if he works for you then more power to you.

Dictate of Erebos is definitely a card I would suggest, as it can be a wonderful combo piece to help clear the board or just cause havoc. However, might I also suggest cards like Mimic Vat to be able to hold onto to combo pieces when they die or to keep triggering ETB/LTB abilities; Living Death as a way to pull out any creatures in your grave you need to combo out with or to simply flood the board with deceased Shamans; and Sidisi, Undead Vizier as a search and sac. If mana is a bother Black Market might also be of interest. On Sidisi I understand this might stray from what your is theme a bit, so that's up to you. As for what you have listed on the maybe board, you may wish to try Wolf-Skull Shaman, although he doesn't combo as much he's semi-reliable token spam and may draw out a kill spell due to sheer annoyance.

As a side note to all of this you have a lot of combos with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, but if cards are only in the deck because they combo with him you may wish to reconsider them. Any player worth their salt isn't going to let Kiki stick if they can help it as he's the key to all sorts of infinite combos. Of course this can vary according to the group of people you play with, but that's my experience. Anyways hope something in here is helpful. Best of Luck!

AStorm02 on You killed my stuff!?!? lol

Thanks for commenting ersatz_olorin. I've been thinking of taking skittles out of the deck. I'll probably put Call to the Grave or Black Market into the deck.

I'd take out Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon since it's your only infect creature.

Generally it's a good idea to choose one or the other rather than divide your damage between the two. One Swords to Plowshares and you just paid 5 mana to gain 4 life.

I'd probably replace it with Cryptbreaker, Urza's Incubator, Call to the Grave, or Black Market.

Personally, I would take out Crypt Ghast because you have only 8 Swamps in the deck. I was thinking maybe Butcher of Malakir which I think is good for a sacrifice creature deck. Black Market is also a good card.

I do not know your budget, so if these suggestions are out of it I am sorry. However here are some good cards.

Patriarch's Bidding - good tribal resurrection

Living Death - good resurrection again (black is good in this lol)

Damnation - Solid removal incase things don't go your way.

Decree of Pain - more removal

Crypt Ghast - not a rat but good mana

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers - insane ramp

Black Market - good mana for playing black lol

Contamination - Since you are creature heavy, this will be your #1 hate card for anyone not running black. It may make you lose friends, but it will certainly win games

Grave Pact - if you did find a bunch of sac outlets, this is the card you will want along with it.

Necropotence - A fun way to gain card advantage.

There are many cards out there for mono black support that will have their advantages and disadvantages. The main thing is to just experiment. Ask a couple buddies. Play your deck a lot and really get to know it. Anyways hope you take note of my suggestions and will try them out.

DrukenReaps on Jeleva Budget Help!

3 weeks ago

I mean if you really want we could give you a $20 deck. If you give people a hard number to work around as far as $$$ that would be very helpful.

The first thing I do when I don't want to spend much on a deck is look through my collection for cards that work in the deck. They don't have to be good in the deck they just have to be related to the theme of the deck.

Things I'd say are most important to Jeleva is haste, multiple combat steps, and a lot of mana. I would say Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Aggravated Assault, Mirari, Revel in Riches, and Black Market are all things I would put in most jeleva decks.

She also loves the big dumb spells that don't fit in any other deck. If you have been playing for any length of time you probably have a bunch of those you will never use. In Garruk's Wake is a good example and is less than $1.

obviously Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top would be good but if you are on a budget you will probably have to pass on them and rely on blue spells like Brainstorm instead.

TheGiantOfTheJungle on Sedris EDH??? halp pls

3 weeks ago

Void Maw, Great Whale and Time and Tide are cards I've seen around, as I've never properly played a Sedris deck.

As far as the black mana situation, Black Market seems the immediate thought, but if not then Crypt Ghast is another option. Curse of Opulence works to a lesser degree, and allows you to draw the fire away a little.

Hope these help!
