Torchess on Run Of The Mill

1 week ago

I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)

IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void

Even if you're all into mill, some board wipes like Black Sun's Zenith or Killing Wave can really save you.

Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

if you're into zombies you can use Arcane Adaptation + Undead Alchemist + Waste Not

Cloudius on Odds Are In Your Favor

Let me know how your deck worked out for you. It's always interesting to see different interpretations of a deck.

If mill is your thing, Rise of the Dark Realms is a great include. Body Double's great too since she's odd. You can also consider Beacon of Unrest and Extract from Darkness. In fact Beacon coupled with Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor let's you reanimate an artifact or creature every turn.

Mine has been working great so far and if I manage to drop Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign early, the game is mine for the taking if my opponents are void of answers. I remember one game where I had her out on turn 2 and casted a "free" Expropriate on turn 3 wIth her attack trigger!

Fenix15 on SBT Combo

Hey, I enjoy the list a lot, keep up the good work! Any reason why you are playing Phyrexian Delver over Body Double here?

I am somewhat surprised not to see a Consuming Aberration in there as it seems to fit the idea of milling perfectly and provides a savage beat stick creature to boot and is back breaking when used with Phenax, God of Deception who should probably be added as well. Mind Grind is a on theme win condition by itself and Mind Funeral is an efficient mill source as well. Also Dimir Doppelganger and Body Double could be an amusing addition.

usaDiabetic on Moderate Budget Mimeoplasm EDH

1 month ago

After taking a quick look at the build, I feel like Mimeoplasm wants more creatures in the list. Maybe ones that kind of impersonate what he can do, like Body Double, Mercurial Pretender, Evil Twin, Altered Ego, Clever Impersonator, and/or Progenitor Mimic.

Also maybe some more big targets for the mime. Stuff like Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Oblivion Sower and Void Winnower.

Also utility lands like Rogue's Passage and Detection Tower could work great in here

As for cuts I think you have too many instants and sorcery cards in the deck, so maybe just trim down to your best.

Either way, build looks fun +1!

SynergyBuild on Inalla combos "competitive"

1 month ago

First off, I accidentally linked a player, so Murmaider | Thrasios Combo is what I meant. For a 200-300 dollar upgrade, the first thing I would get are better lands, I know that they are unexiting, but a good untapped lands can push a deck to win a turn or two earlier. The things I would get would be like City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel and Mana Confluence as life rarely matter, and some other cards like Forbidden Orchard or Gemstone Mine as well because they rarely hurt. Demonic Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Worldly Tutor and Summoner's Pact are great tutors for the deck that can help out very well. You can also drop Body Double and Carrion Feeder for a single Deathrite Shaman, which does the trick.

A few cards that are ubiquitous among EDH decks I simply couldn't fit into the tight budget like Preordain and Sol Ring, so slotting them in would help smooth out the deck. Other cards I would suggest would mostly be more tutors, card draw, and lands, but a couple exceptions could be Lotus Petal, Cabal Ritual, Fatestitcher over Dregscape Zombie, and minor things like that.

The full cost of all of these suggestions equals $130 on tcgplayer, and should serve to win you games nearly a turn and a half faster than the estimated turn 5.6 win, to around 4.1 win on average, with faster hands winning turn 3, godly hands winning turn 1 or two, and slower hands winning turn 5. The deck doesn't need to mulligan too often given the abundance of tutors, but it still needs some protections against hate, removal, and countermagic, but the original deck did all of that pretty well.

If you want to spend $70 to $170 additional dollars on upgrading the deck. I would recommend simply upgrading the landbase, or moving the combos over to the ones listed on Murmaider | Thrasios Combo.

Megalomania on Tasigur, Sneaky Politician

The list has 101 cards.

If you're aiming for a faster combo deck, I suggest you try Hermit Druid lines with Necrotic Ooze or Laboratory Maniac as its win con. Another option is to use Flash Hulk combos. For the deck I think Flash Hulk to Viscera Seer, Body Double, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista would work nicely.

SynergyBuild on I’m Flexin my T-Rex

I would personally drop Viscera Seer, Body Double, mikeaus, the unhallowed all for Mogis's Marauder, and two other cards of your choice Bloodghast could be a secondary copy of Fatestitcher, or whatever else you want.

What this will do will make Protean Hulk fetch Hermit Druid, Deathrite Shaman, and Mogis's Marauder, you have 2 black devotion, with Deathrite Shaman and Mogis's Marauder, you give haste to Deathrite Shaman, make a from it, and also give haste to the Hermit Druid, then use the mana to go off with it.
