Blatant Thievery Discussion

Profet93 on Talrand, Summoner of No Fun

3 days ago


I always love to see another Talrand user. Let's make sure we kill everyone's fun, leaving only for ourselves, shall we?

Future Sight, while it may seem slow, generates a great amount of card advantage over time (seriously, it gets ridiculous). Works well with Mystical Tutor

Overburden is always fun (doesn't apply to your tokens, only nontoken creatures)

Land Equilibrium if you have the $ (currently waiting for funds to free up for myself)

I know you run Back to Basics but I still must recommend the following for you to consider...

Academy Ruins - Recur important artifacts (Ex: Isochron Scepter)

Riptide Laboratory - Saves talrand, baral and most importantly reuse for Snapcaster Mage

Caged Sun > Gauntlet of power

Sphinx of the Final Word seems weak (unless there is another person in your meta who plays counterspells). Even then, it's still not that good for how much it costs.

You can't counter everything, that's where Vedalken Shackles comes in :)

Blatant Thievery has won me a couple games

Feel free to check out my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for some other ideas. +1 from me. Let me know if you have any questions/comments about my suggestions :)

Phoenix-2063 on phasing - change of control

1 week ago

If i gain control of a permanent an opponent owns off say Blatant Thievery, how does phasing effect the control of the permanent? Will it go back to it's owner?

Hey and welcome to edh. Thats a pretty nice deck! Seems like its a lot of fun to play, but you might get some issues with the mana base. If you want to go the route with lots of basic lands, then go heavily in favour of Forest, and play more basic fetching cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation and my favorite in green decks Blighted Woodland. These will fix your mana better then say Nature's Lore, which is better if you have non-basic forests. If you want some more cheap duals then try Yavimaya Coast, Temple of Mystery and Lumbering Falls. Other fun cards to play with are Unexpected Results, Bounty of the Luxa, Diluvian Primordial, Coiling Oracle and Blatant Thievery. These are just some of the cards I play with these colours. They are not the best, but they are fun. I hope you have a lot of success with your deck.

Blatant Thievery is nice if people are going to be playing their best stuff. If its in your budget, Expropriate is always a knockout play.

Illusory Gains isn't permanent but is a nice effect. In a way, its similar to Faerie Artisans.

I don't really care for Back to Basics here. With an active Braid its just not that powerful. Or am I wrong? I haven't played against it much.

5: Spine of Ish Sah (Adam), Chaos Warp (Shannon), Sylvan Reclamation (Ryan)

4: Nevinyrral's Disk (Adam), Bane of Progress (Shannon), Vindicate (Ryan)

3: Aura Shards (Adam), Massacre Wurm (Shannon), Toxic Deluge (Ryan)

2: Capsize (Adam), Cryptic Command (Shannon), Swords to Plowshares (Ryan)

1: Grave Pact (Adam), Blatant Thievery (Shannon), Cyclonic Rift (Ryan)

As an amusing anecdote, my Noyan Dar list can very easily create boardstates that are unaffected by Cyclonic Rift, but that deck is hot garbage.

No Anguished Unmaking? Personally, I like instant speed more than I like the ability to target lands and not lose 3 life.

....Bribery, Blatant Thievery, Cruel Entertainment, Spelltwine, Overburden, Pendrell Mists, Dissipation Field, Metallurgic Summonings, Hero's Downfall, Jace, the Mind Sculptor is always great but especially so here I think. He does everything from stacking your deck with cards from your hand to resetting Jeleva by bouncing her to hand to fatesealing opponents to know what they have to steal, Time Warp and all its variations are awesome for free, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Thran Dynamo, Rhystic Study, Cyclonic Rift, and i agree with Scroll Rack.

Lots of changes to consider! Good luck and have fun with all that :)

The deck you are describing sounds exactly like what I used to run so I'm just going to post my favorite cards from it here. Memory Plunder, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Diluvian Primordial, Sepulchral Primordial, Silent-Blade Oni, Mindleech Mass, Thada Adel, AcquisitorNightveil Specter, Knowledge Exploitation, Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, and as said earlier Geth, Lord of the Vault. Green doesn't really have much in the thieving department but it does have ramp and non-creature removal which are both very important in commander.
