Blasphemous Act Discussion

MagicalHacker on Rosheen Meanderer Hydra Disco

4 hours ago

In terms of ramp, most of the ramp you have are cards that push you only 1 mana ahead, which I think is too small of an effect unless it comes with another valuable effect. Because of this, I would drop Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Animist's Awakening, and Gruul Signet for Worn Powerstone, Astral Cornucopia, Gyre Sage, Khalni Heart Expedition, and Overgrowth. That kind of upgrade to your ramp will ensure that you get huge creatures out very easily. If you want to see other cards that could also fit this role, check out MagicalHacker - List of All Ramp Cards, but I would say that this deck definitely needs cards that advance your manabase by two or more, so ignore the cards that only ramp you by one.

Secondly, I only see three cards in here for draw, so there's no wonder that this deck doesn't hold it's own! We have all been there at some point, so let me emphasize this point: Draw is the most important thing for 99% of decks. Draw will let you have options, draw will let you build board states quickly, and draw will make it harder for you to get mana screwed or mana flooded. All of these are very important. You have Harmonize, Lifeblood Hydra, and Citanul Flute, but let's try to get 7 more cards for draw in here. If you need to take some out after testing, that's fine, but I don't see that being a problem. Too much draw isn't usually a problem with 10 cards that draw in the deck, so I think you should add any 7 of the following 9 options: Abzan Beastmaster, Elemental Bond, Triumph of Ferocity, Drumhunter, Outpost Siege, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Skullclamp, Wheel of Fortune, and Life's Legacy to your deck to be able to refill your hand quickly and often. Check out MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Steady) and MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Burst) if you want to see options I didn't mention or options that aren't quite so expensive. I do think that those 9 cards are probably the best draw cards for your deck though, so picking 7 will bring your draw up to a reasonable amount. (I'll get into what 7 cards to drop soon.)

Next, let's tackle boardwipes. You've got Savage Twister and Chandra's Ignition, which I think are fantastic, but you do need more. There are only a few board wipes that can kill flying creatures and nonflying creatures in red and green at a reasonable mana investment, and those are Nevinyrral's Disk, Chain Reaction, Heaven / Earth, Blasphemous Act, Rolling Earthquake, and Starstorm. I think you can pick any 3 of those to add to the deck and you will be set on board wipes. (This brings us up to 12 cards that need to be dropped.) If you want even more options, again, feel free to check out MagicalHacker - List of All Board Wipe Cards to see more cards that could work, but I think adding any three of the above options would be fine.

Now, let's move on to item removal. You have Decimate, Hull Breach, Vandalblast, Beast Within, and Steel Hellkite. These are all fantastic, but I'd like to see Chaos Warp as well to be able to deal with any permanent.

Lastly, let's take a look at what cards you have to be able to deal with creatures at instant speed. Most people assume that dealing with creatures at sorcery speed is just as strong as dealing with creatures at instant speed, but here is why that is not correct: your opponents' creatures are good cards for you when they are attacking other opponents, and they only become problems when they attack you. For that reason, it's important to remember to have lots of instant speed removal to be able to kill creatures during combat when they would deal lots of damage to you or to kill creatures that are about to allow an opponent to go infinite. That said, your only options for that are Chaos Warp and Beast Within, making Chaos Warp that much more important for this deck.

Now that we have gotten the enablers down, let's talk about the bulk of the deck. To really abuse Rosheen Meanderer, we want the rest of the deck to be about using that X restriction. That said, we do want to use cards that will use that restriction to do things of value. If we are going to make big creatures (which we do want to do), we want to make sure that those creatures can attack to deal damage to players by giving them evasion.

Lifeblood Hydra and Primordial Hydra are the only ones that have an evasion ability naturally, so then we are forced to include things to give evasion. Flying is a good start, so I think that Akroma's Memorial and Homura, Human Ascendant are a place to start. You were right to add some ways to give everything trample, but I would add Khenra Charioteer, Gruul War Plow, and Primal Rage. Those five in addition to your Nylea, God of the Hunt and Archetype of Aggression should be enough ways to make your big dudes go through.

I realize now though that I've lost track of how many cards to add, so instead I am going to make a decklist to show what I would suggest this deck should become. No worries, I will link it at the end.

I would actually add all the creatures that cost X but enter with X counters (excluding the ones that cost double X, since those are not as powerful). And after that, just some ways to double +1/+1 counters or use Rosheen's ability will round out the deck.

Personally, I believe that 37 lands including Sol Ring would be enough since you now have enough ramp, so I brought down the number of lands too.

Hope I was able to help you!

Phyrexian Obliterator isn't the same as Phyrexian Negator. Obliterator is basically a, "I dare you to cast that Blasphemous Act or swing into me" card, so I don't see how it hurts him at all.

Toxic Deluge is a card I don't think you should run without, as far as suggestions go. The life cost just has to be tailored to the highest power you want to kill, and it costs far less than many of your other options.

Beseech the Queen is a nice, cheap tutor that you may be able to take advantage of. Cruel Tutor is another if you don't care about price so much.

sparkblazewarriors on Wait, whose card was this again?

I play this commander as well, great fun. More redundancy with the threaten effect is quite nice with Conquering Manticore and Molten Primordial for when Yasova has been killed too much and also leaves you another big body. Cyclonic Rift is just too good not to include in most any commander deck with blue. On that line of thinking, more boardwipes is always a welcome addition for when you fall behind, stuff like Blasphemous Act and Chain Reaction which are more reliable than Bonfire of the Damned for killing a large amount of creatures. More card draw is also a must in this deck to keep your hand fueled, things like Prime Speaker Zegana and Rishkar's Expertise have been all stars in my build, Zegana also can get nuts with Conjurer's Closet or Deadeye Navigator.

I do caution against Hydras as wincons, they mostly just durdle about and get chumped while stuff like Molten and Diluvian Primordial can have a big impact when they hit the field. Also, I've found Yasova to be very mana hungry when using her effect so it's hard to justify saving mana for just a big hydra that doesn't have immediate impact on the game. Scourge of Scola Vale is ok because it gives you a sac outlet and Genesis Hydra can potentially dig for a good card, but the other two don't offer much. Hydra Broodmaster does nothing when it hits the field and requires a lot of mana to be effective and in the same vain Hooded Hydra is mostly just a big beater that can be chumped. Big beaters in commander really need to do something else besides attack as otherwise an opponent with a Path to Exile just removes your hydra before you get anything out of it, on the other-hand Primordials will give you their effect when they hit the field still. If the deck can easily generate infinite mana, then it may be a different story since Hydra Broodmaster with infinite mana is ridiculous, but I don't see how you do that very easily.

Hope this helps, feel free to disregard my wall of text.

DasTree on Omnath's Raging Sub35$ Budget

1 week ago

An Omrath deck needs tand fall triggers. And lots of them. And there are quite a few cheap ways to get those triggers. Sure cards that could double your tokens would be great, but they are well over the $.75 per card budget. To start you need as close to 40 lands as possible. I currently run 41 in my build. Lands that are needed... Blighted Woodland, Evolving Wilds, Ghost Town, Jund Panorama, Naya Panorama, Terramorphic Expanse, Warped Landscape. These will get the multiple land drops on a budget. Another great card is Where Ancients Tread. Need some game enders and some board cleaners... Blasphemous Act can end the game if you have enough elementals out. Remember they deal 3 damage when they die based on the Commanders ability. Some light removal in Hull Breach and Decimate could also help. These are some additions, but the lad additions are probably a necessity. Hope this helps

VexenX on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

Didn't see the comments, I was never tagged. I just went back and read them and thought they were kind of funny to be honest. I am guessing none of them played against a good Omnath deck. This is honestly the first time my decks power had been put into question.

Just so there is no confusion for p0megranates, I own the deck exactly as posted. I have even scanned copies of my altered art card to the list. I pride myself very much in this deck, I even got my hands on a foil Gaea's Cradle before the price spiked. If you want to play against it in person, I'll be at the GP Vegas this year.

I don't play artifact ramp because the deck profits from land ramp during every stage of the game. Sure Mana Crypt would be good, but I didn't realize every deck required one to be good.. Lol. Playing mana dorks in Omnath, Locus of Rage is a joke. I don't know why that list is even viable.

I didn't realize a curve of 3.8 was greedy in commander. I am about to remove World Breaker for Nature's Lore here soon. Also, Blasphemous Act kinda messes with my curve avg a bit (it is cmc 1 pretty much all the time). Akroma's Memorial, Stalking Vengeance, and Avenger of Zendikar might be worth removing if you care about cmc avg.

Gates88 Omnath interacts a ton. Just read the card itself. Also, I win way more from cards like Warstorm Surge/Purphoros, God of the Forge and sack outlets then I do with Craterhoof Behemoth and swinging in. I am sure your take on Omnath would work just fine, but it does not mean mine is not viable. This deck is honestly the most consistent edh deck I have seen. Play Land = win... Seems good.

I don't know who anyone is Neotrup, but Rhadamanthus's answer seems like the answer to mark based on the stated the credentials. The card is much less interesting to me now, but I suppose that'd explain why it's less than a buck. I'd have to cast it after a Blasphemous Act or something to really behold its power.

Thanks all ;)
