SynergyBuild on What is your favorite combo ...

1 week ago

This is a post for people to describe their favorite combos for EDH! There are many of them, so please don't list ones other players have listed.

Also, while many combos win the game, like Demonic Consultation and Thassa's Oracle, but a cool user on another question I asked (FormOverFunction) showed me a card I didn't remember or know existed, Artificer's Hex, which I figured pretty fast would combo with Bloodthirsty Blade, to kill a creature each turn. Sure, it doesn't win the game, but it still is a fun and cool combo!

What are your favorites?

Wow, I hadn't heard of a couple of those cards, that was an incredible list, thank you so much!

Artificer's Hex is perfect with Bloodthirsty Blade since you keep the equipment you are able to kill a creature every turn!

Iceberg is also amazing, with a Zirda, the Dawnmaker and a Doubling Season it makes infinite mana!

The most interesting choice for this is almost certainly Assault Suit - your opponent will be forced to pass his creature around on everyone else's turn, and since you control the equipment, the creature can't attack you but it can attack its owner.

Grafted Wargear and Vulshok Gauntlets are older versions of Grafted Exoskeleton and Heavy Arbalest. As someone else mentioned, however, you cannot sacrifice an opponent's creature even if you yank a Grafted Wargear out of it.

Stitcher's Graft also slows creatures down, Peregrine Mask stops them from attacking, and Bloodthirsty Blade is maybe better than Assault Suit in a multiplayer game but is useless one-on-one and doesn't even need Magnetic Theft's help to get stuck to a guy.

If I may make a suggestion - since you're already running a number of equipment, it might be worth it to add white so you can pilot Sunforger. It can play a Magnetic Theft right from your library, making it easier to ensure you can do your little trick. Don't forget that adding white means you also have access to Open the Armory and the like!

I had a deck similar to this with Gahiji, Honored One. Some pieces from that deck that will help with your strategy include Bloodthirsty Blade, Assault Suit, Avatar of Slaughter, and Warmonger Hellkite.

I would throw in some more attack taxes like Norn's Annex and Sphere of Safety

Ok so looking at the list it seems like its heavy with ways to protect your commander but maybe a little light on splashy triggers from your commander. Think of it this way, you get Yennett out turn 4/5 and swing next turn. Right now you are much more likely to hit something that won't impact the board much. If (when) I was building it I prioritized cards with awesome Enters the Battlefield abilities. That way if I flipped one with yennett something happened immediately. Thats why sorceries and instants are good with her since it becomes a free spell. Any creature you flip can't do anything until the following turn. I will offer some little suggestions here but you should really consider what your win condition in first. Is it commander damage? Is it swarming with creatures? Do you have a combo you are digging for?

Blessed Wind is funny but I would swap it for Plague Wind.

That Which Was Taken is too expensive of protection. Swap for Champion's Helm or General's Kabuto Or possibly just cut it for something that will impact the board like the three new instants from the commander decks in your color Deadly Rollick, Fierce Guardianship and Flawless Maneuver. If you can afford/get those cards they would definitely kick up to compete level here.

You need Lightning Greaves. Getting yennet protected and with haste will always be good. Maybe take out Bloodthirsty Blade since it doesn't do anything for your commander and there are better ways to deal with opponents creatures.

As much as I love Spirit of the Night lets be honest you will never feel good about casting it for 9. If you don't cast it for free it will most always be a bad card in hand. I would replace with the new card Verge Rangers which is perfect for this deck. It will ramp you on occasion AND lets you look at the top of your deck whenever you want.

Mixing in a little Bloodthirsty Blade, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Vow of Malice, Vow of Lightning along with your Disrupt Decorum would be icing on the cake.

Second wind thoughts because I can't stop:

You should see how many of the samurai in your next iteration are human and if it is large enough maybe work some human payoffs to help bolster your deck like Riders of Gavony, Thalia's Lieutenant and Cavalry Pegasus (there are several more). Note that you shouldn't add so many to dilute your Samurai core and if you have a good number of fox and other samurai this may not be something worth pursuing.

This is going to be a combat centric deck, so you may find adding combat related cards and some goad cards like Bloodthirsty Blade and Martial Impetus to help do damage and remove blockers for your turn

If you want to start to lift the budget cap: Flawless Maneuver and Heirloom Blade will be cool in this deck
