Bone Miser Discussion

SideBae on Scarab God Reanimator/Control

The deck is in the 'help' section so I'll leave some ideas... I hope I'm not being presumptuous:

  1. You may want to consider running all the relevant Zendikar fetches; I see you're missing Marsh Flats, for example. They're expensive, but you're running Underground Sea so I'm assuming budget isn't really a problem. The reason I say you should run them is that a. they'll make your Jace, the Mind Sculptor's Brainstorm ability that much better, and b. they'll let you run ACTUAL Brainstorm effectively. I've found cantrips to be really effective in EDH, and I think in addition to Brainstorm you should run Ponder and Preordain in pretty much any blue deck.

  2. I think Murderous Rider is likely better than Hero's Downfall. It does tuck itself when it dies, which means reanimating it could be a little tricky, but having the extra value of being able to cast it as a creature seems a strict upgrade from just an instant.

  3. I'm surprised you aren't running Windfall -- it's a discard outlet and a draw spell all-in-one. I think you should run it; same goes for Fact or Fiction and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip.

  4. If you do end up running Jace's Archivist from the 'Maybeboard,' consider running Geth's Grimoire, Waste Not and/or Bone Miser. I've always been a fan of the discard subtheme in EDH, and it goes pretty well with reanimation strategies. If you do consider running those cards, it's worth noting Windfall, Liliana of the Veil, Raven's Crime and Words of Waste are also really synergistic with them.

  5. I'm surprised you're not running Talisman of Dominance or Mana Vault. They both seem like good ramp for this deck.

  6. I don't know if you have a problem with her staxiness, but I think Narset, Parter of Veils is the Cat's PJs. Especially with Windfall.

  7. Lastly, I think Graveborn Muse has a spot in this deck. I know you said you aren't looking for zombie tribal, but she's at worst a Phyrexian Arena and you're tangentially making more zombies anyway. I feel like most of the time she'll draw you somewhere between 2 and 4 cards, which seems like it makes her worth it.

Right. That's all I got. Good luck!

IMMG54 on The Korvold Monster

Hi, I'm here from your post. If you want to add in Ad Nauseam I would suggest cutting out Bone Miser, as Ad Nauseam is literally one of the best draw spells in the format, and you already have a 5-mana draw card in either The Gitrog Monster or Korvold. I don't know what Bone miser does for you, but personally I would suggest taking him out if you're in a competitive meta.

FaiberJC Thank you, I really appreciate your comment. I would definitely go into the Wizard-tribal. In the section "Strategies" are already some ideas on how to play with wizards. Think of Naban, Dean of Iteration as a trigger for a additional effects.

The thing I'd work on is more on the Notion Thief + Whispering Madness -combo, working also with many other cards (Windfall, Day's Undoing, Teferi's Puzzle Box,...). Therefor think of Waste Not, Bone Miser or Words of Waste. Winning is possible with the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank -combo.

Hello, thanks for your interest in my deckbuilding of Circu Circu's Field of Dreams (Lantern) [Primer]. To your question: Basically yes, the combo Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter , but I'm unsatisfied with this win condition. While playing the deck one of the problems is the board presence and also some hate coming from other players for taxing their stuff. Nevertheless I'd keep the Isochron Scepter-combo in as addition. With this artifact you can also imprint other important spells like Mystical Tutor, Reality Shift and also Cabal Ritual so this card is doing well. I don't like to depend so much on one win condition, so I'm going on for some rebuild.

Unfortunately I have not found yet time to give the deck an update. I'm going to cut for sure Archfiend of Depravity (to less interactions, no protection at all), Wizened Snitches (4 CMC is too much), Meekstone (No cards to tap other creatures). I also question the amount of Counterspells in the deck, guess those cards are not so important. Surprisingly well performed so far has Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver.

The thing I'd work on is more on the Notion Thief + Whispering Madness -combo, working also with many other cards (Windfall, Day's Undoing, Teferi's Puzzle Box,...). Therefor think of Waste Not, Bone Miser or Words of Waste. Winning is possible with the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank -combo. Another card could be Twilight Prophet for some life gain..

From the actual new cards from Theros Beyond Death I'd think of Wavebreak Hippocamp for card draw, Nadir Kraken for additonal board presence.

SueMe on Hogaak: My Favorite (Infinite) Combo Deck

Wow! Well done!

Yeah, you're right. I never realized that you can replace Phyrexian Altar with a different card. It was always just "the card that does the infinite combo," for me. I'll definitely mention the Pitiless Plunderer in the Description and give you props for that.

I know right? Most people don't realize what Bone Miser can do, but really, it's probably this deck's MVP along with Greater Good .

Heck, I might just put Hermit Druid in. I know what I said about Traverse the Outlands , but hey, getting five lands off it is probably good enough. I can take out a couple of basics here and there.

In terms of budget, I must confess that the only fetch I own is the selesnya one. I proxy the rest.... Yeah. Shameful, I know. I'll get the rest eventually.

I hope you continue having fun playing Hogaak. I know I will.
