goldlion on Kresh - Wrath me bro!

5 days ago

C'mon, Wrath me brew!

Oh man! I was looking at building a token Kresh the Bloodbraided and I think this has provided me with some of the missing win-cons and synergies for interaction. Fantastic!

I agree with Heisenbrain, though many of those will be putting taking it higher than you guys are aiming for with the budget aspect. I'll definitely be including some free sacs like Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder and Bloodflow Connoisseur, maybe Bloodthrone Vampire. These will be especially good for turning Vicious Shadows into a turn 7 game ender. I've Altar of Dementia already in there as well a few other mill tactics.

Thanks for this, commandersbrew, and for the great episode with some helpful insights on removals/wraths!

hkhssweiss on Need Help - Meren Upgrades?

6 days ago


What is your budget? I used to play Meren for a long time so here are a couple staple cards that can be considered :)

You can also add in more mana dorks so you can faster accelerate your game play, cards like Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Deathrite Shaman, Birds of Paradise, Elves of Deep Shadow, Fyndhorn Elves.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask questions!

hkhssweiss on Tenebu's Gravedigging Tendencies (Primer)

SynergyBuild If I try to add in Varolz, what would you suggest I cut that wouldn't hurt the curve, as I have quite a few options of having a sac outlet in terms of Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, Phyrexian Tower, High Market, Birthing Pod, as well as flashbacking Cabal Therapy.

My only other flex spot right now is what it seems to be Angel's Grace, and I really don't want to add in anything higher than one cmc for a three cmc.

Abzkaban on Ghave That Bitch an Infinite Combo [[Primer]]

1 week ago


Using Elenda is a good idea. I can see the potential there, but you're right in that it would disrupt the combo synergy of the deck just a bit. I try to make sure I have multiple paths to combos, and so I hesitate to run something that is niche or doesn't combo with as many other cards. Having a beat stick like her is great, but swinging is usually a last resort for this deck and is usually done through infinite tokens or an infinite/infinite Ghave or Carrion Feeder.

You're actually the first to bring up Pitiless Plunderer. I'm always surprised by the amount of value cards I see coming out of Ixalan. This one is actually a good one to consider for various ways to abuse infinite death triggers. I'm not sure who's spot it would take, but you've put it on my radar.

Okay...that deck idea is awesome! It's so jank, and I've never seen something quite like that before. I'll take a look at it more in depth and give you my thoughts. I tend to put a lot of stock into clever deck names, and I think you've definitely got a winning name there.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my deck. I just hope I've done Ghave justice.

multimedia on Izoni Self-Mill

1 week ago

Hey, consider speeding up self-mill by adding more two drops? A plan should be to be able to consistently self-mill a dredge card turn two/three this sets up the game very well for you. There's a lot of powerful green two drop spells that self-mill, in my opinion even though these spells are not creatures they're too important to set-up dredge in the early game while also potentially getting you a card. These cards also help in the early game to set-up Loam by putting it or lands into your graveyard. Since you're not playing any Fetch lands you want other ways to get lands into your graveyard in the early game.

Cards to consider adding:

The nice thing about Salvage/Commune/Grapple is they can potentially get you a land. When you're self-mill/dredging while also trying to get to six lands to play Izoni this is helpful to make your land drops. Hermit is less good when playing lots of Basic lands, but it is still one of the fastest ways to self-mill the most cards in green. His ability is repeatable each turn, that's great for self-mill and it's good that he can also find a land.

Dredge is important with a self-mill plan, but dredge cards are problematic because they go back to your hand after dredging. You don't want dredge cards in your hand therefore adding some cards that can allow you to discard cards from your hand are helpful. Sometimes you even want to be able to discard Loam because you don't have lands in your graveyard to target, but mostly for the dredge creatures (Grave-Troll, Stinkweed, Thug, Shambling) to get them back into your graveyard. Consider these discard outlets:

Fauna is great with dredge creatures because they can be constant fuel to discard because they can keep coming back to your hand after dredging to then be discarded to tutor for another creature. Getting dredge creatures into your graveyard while also tutoring for another creature is pretty busted. Existence is nice to be able to discard a creature card and then recur a creature, good with value creatures who have ETB/die abilities such as Wayfinder, Sage, Tribe Elder, Visionary, Plaguecrafter, etc.

Being able to sac Izoni is good because she can't sac herself. Spending her back to the Command Zone or into the graveyard is good for you to be able to play her again to make more Insects. No mana cost sac outlets are also helpful with the Cutthroat/Archer plan of making your opponent's lose life and are busted with Skullclamp. Consider these other creature sac outlets:

Creature ramp is wanted with Izoni. Creatures because they can help to ramp or be fuel for Izoni when self-milled/discarded. Deathrite is great, but can sometimes be less consistent as ramp, you want more reliable ramp. Consider these other ramp creatures:

To speed up dredge you want other ways to draw, other than the card you draw at your draw step. Low mana cost creatures who draw are helpful:

Other cards to consider:

If you self-mill/dredge Dread then you can potentially reanimate something for free the turn you play Izoni by sacing Izoni and two other Insects or just three Insects. Dread is powerful with Insects. Intent is one of the best budget tutors in Commander especially when sacing a creature is very beneficial. Sidisi is a creature who's also a tutor and self-sac. Sage is pretty much a green staple for Commander. Plaguecrafter is an updated Fleshbag/Executioner, an effect that makes all opponents sac a creature/Planeswalker can be very helpful in some situations. Shambling is another dredge creature, even though it's the least good of these creatures, it's more dredge.

I realize I have suggested a lot of cards to add; if you would like help with what cards to cut I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

i understand all of the more expensive cards and i think i will buy them sometime, but for the cheaper cards, i don't want Krosan Grip and Nature's Claim because i want all of my removal on creatures, i don't understand why should i use Mindblade Render, but i am going to use Smothering Abomination and Carrion Feeder.
