Blazing Archon Discussion

Descole on Oh it's just b/w tokens, WAIT! THAT'S AN EMRAKUL!!

6 days ago

Thanks for the sugestions Wurmlover. Cloudform lack the nesasary power on its own to justify it inclusion. Blinkmoth Nexus is a good thought, but I am alredy having problems with the painfull manabase, I don't think the dack can handel another colorless land. Fourthermore thanks to our 15 token producers creatures are rarly a problem. Finaly, Blazing Archon is good but I am not convinced it's better at its jobb than Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite especially with our tokens.

D1beast: I pretty much just went to my binders for your request for a budget version. I haven't looked for much card interaction, mostly just trying to help this deck capitalize on Mayael's ability to cheat cards while keeping the price tag low.

Unfoil Blazing Archon.
Sideboard Omnath, Locus of Rage, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Dragonlord Atarka, Dromoka, the Eternal and Dragonlord Dromoka - put these in as you please.
Remove Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Scourge of the Throne, Vigor, Sword of Feast and Famine, Thran Dynamo, Rings of Brighthearth, Defense of the Heart, and all non-basic lands except for Command Tower and Reflecting Pool.
Adjust basic lands to 15 Forest, 11 Mountain, 10 Plains.
Add Aegis Angel, Bane of Bala Ged, Elderscale Wurm, Essence of the Wild, Krond the Dawn-Clad, Scaled Behemoth, Stoneshock Giant, Tyrant of Discord, Green Sun's Zenith, Primeval Bounty.
Total Cost of Mainboard as of 5/15 (TCG): ~$169. Sideboard adjustments above total ~$16-$17.

Again, this probably isn't optimal and needs tweaking to make all the removals and additions work together, but these are some ideas to take the deck if you wanted a unified theme.

Wurmlover on HELP!

I broke my page while tinkering with some base coding for a primer given by Epochalyptic, and I don't know how. I deleted a section that, if HTML hasn't changed, should have been good to delete, and it broke my page. If anyone could help, that would be great!

<div id="div2.side" style="display: none">
<h3 style=text-align:center;>Sideboard</h3>
<button onclick="document.getElementById('div2.side').style.display='none'; document.getElementById('div1.side').style.display='';" style=float:right;>Hide</button>
<p style="font-size:medium;">My sideboard is made to be very general, since i haven't played at my LGS in a while.</p>
<p style="font-size:medium;">
1. [[Blazing archon]]: this is to shut down ago decks. if i can survive off of counterspells until i combo off, I find this, and suddenly, it all gets much easier for me.</p>
<p style="font-size:medium;">2. [[Jase, architect of thought]]: This is a card that can help me when i want to pull a more control game. also really helpful against thopter tokens.</p>
<p style="font-size:medium;">3. [[runechanter's pike]]: There are 3 of these in the sideboard, so i can switch to entirely aggro as my win condition.</p>
<p style="font-size:medium;">4. [[Tormod's crypt]]: I use this as a budget alternative to [[relic of progenitus]]. it hoses delver and dredge tactics extremely well.</p>
<p style="font-size:medium;">5. [[unsubstantiate]]: This is an amazing counterspell that can be utilized during matches with many wrath effects. It can counter [[supreme verdict]], without countering it. it can also bounce a creature if I need it to.</p>
<p style="font-size:medium;">6. [[witchbane orb]]: this is a card that I love. Since I am not playing white, I use this instead of leyline. this mitigates burn, 8-rack, and mill. all very powerful decks, but they are stopped by this.</p>

it was right between the end of the 1st section and the HR tag.

Molesto-the-Egregious Thanks! Honestly unsure How Crawlspace slipped through the cracks. I use it in like every EDH deck. xD

I have tossed the idea of Windborn Muse around, but she does't really add much else to the deck, and I'm already having some issues with Mana Flare/Heartbeat of Spring, if I can't get Blazing Archon onto the board.

First off, suggestion on the name, I feel like Comedy comes in Threes would be a better name for it.

In terms of how to actually improve the deck I would say that you have a lot of win more cards where if you happen to generate early advantage you can very clearly abuse that with cards like Blazing Archon. For implementing a win condition you ironically have three options. Your first option is tailoring it to your local group and finding ways to specifically abuse card theft within that meta. Your second option is going towards a combo oriented deck and using Sen Triplets to lock down any blue players you might be up against. Another option I wouldn't suggest just because it's a cruel thing to do but... add Mycosynth Lattice. Mycosynth Lattice + Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk = No one else can have permanents.

In terms of my own experience, one of my first commander decks was the list generated by Tolarian Community College . I have since switched to a toolbox Sharuum deck and have had a lot more fun with that. I did at one point have the combo that I previously mentioned but really, you will lose friends if you use that combo.
