DemMeowsephs on Plague Archer Kelsien

3 weeks ago

Sorry I never responded to the other comment I read it then completely forgot- that's my memory for you :/.

But wow! This looks great!!! I bet anything it performs so much better now, and I have to say it looks like a super fun deck to play! Great job! I have a few last comments but nothing too much, because this really does look great!

I'm not too sure why you have Luminous Broodmoth since you don't run too many creatures anyway and it's only for creatures you control? So am I missing something or what.

Literally other than that my only comments are suggestions :). Again, Teferi's Protection is amazing for any deck that has white, so if you can find a cut for that I definitely recommend it. Same goes for Call of the Death-Dweller since it'll do the same thing as the other graveyard return cards except it can give Kelsien the deathtouch counter. Could be worth it? Umbral Mantle might be nice too allowing you to untap kelsien for three mana a bunch of times and reactivate him, while buffing him too. Plus it's an artifact which fits with your theme. If you like the Divine Reckoning sort of effects Cataclysm might be nice too. And finallyyyy Rise of the Dark Realms. Hella expensive in mana but this could be a complete game turn around and could be super helpful with all your opponents stuff in their graveyard. Could be fun! Anyways great upgrades, I hope I've helped, and may this deck bring you many wins!

I came here just to see if you had the FTV version of Cataclysm. Probably my favorite art in MTG. Cataclysm

SideBae on Angels, Demons, and Dragons, oh my.

I agree with multimedia: Two-mana mana-rocks are really important in EDH, as long as you're not in green. My first instinct here is to add more of them, and upgrade the three-drop rocks to two-drops. Three-drops like Commander's Sphere and Chromatic Lantern aren't as good, since they don't allow you to cast your general turn three. Consider some adding some of the following: Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Indulgence, Arcane Signet, Everflowing Chalice, Mind Stone...

I like Crackling Doom, since to be good 2+-for-ones are necessary in EDH (since you have 3 opponents). Fire Covenant and Kolaghan's Command are also fairly powerful, the former more than the latter. Wear / Tear is also a RW staple.

There're some lands I think you missed. Savai Triome is almost strictly better than Nomad Outpost and could probably replace one of your basics. Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, Forbidden Orchard and Exotic Orchard are also funny, though the first few are kinda expensive. If you have $10 and want to get spicy, Shizo, Death's Storehouse can replace a basic Swamp and will give your general more evasion. I also think you can cut one to three lands if you put in more artifact-based ramp, since this'll make your deck faster. Slow-fetches like Rocky Tar Pit, Mountain Valley and friends are also on the table, since they can get Smoldering Marsh and Savai Triome (if you run it).

Alternatively, you could consider the "moon" plan. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon can be back-breaking against a lot of decks, and if you design your deck right you can still run them in a three-color deck. Running snow-covered lands and Arcum's Astrolabe can help, and your signets/potential talismans are all good ways to smooth out your colors. Ruination is similar. If you want to go hard (I like pushing my decks to be as good as possible), consider Armageddon and Ravages of War: those can end a game if your general is out, since you can prevent a response.

Depending on your meta, you may want to consider cards like Cursed Totem. If you're playing against a green player (who is playing dorks, which they 2,000% should), this will shut down Elvish Mystic etc. and slow them down like crazy. It also shuts down Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip shenanigans and other abilities.

Maze of Ith is similar to Reconnaissance; you can use it on your own dudes, too.

Depending on your deck budget, you may want to consider Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor and/or Gamble. They're all better than Diabolic Tutor.

Depending on your meta, consider running Boil, Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast. My meta is very blue-heavy and I suspect most are, so at least Red Elemental Blast is generally a safe bet.

Some other demons/dragons/angels to consider: Sire Of Insanity, Archfiend of Despair, Razaketh, the Foulblooded...

Deflecting Swat seems like a good way to protect your general from spot-removal.

Last card I can suggest is Cataclysm. It's good for wiping the board once you've landed your general, and making people lose their lands serves as protection for her. Also note that it totally wipes planeswalkers.

Good luck!

multimedia on Ghired - token Smash face

7 months ago

Hey, nice work in progress at upgrading the precon :)

I don't know what the meta you play in is like, but what I can give you is overall advice on how to upgrade the precon. What the precon needs is early game ramp, tutors, haste enablers for Ghired and repeatable protection for Ghired in combat so he can safely attack and populate. Rhinos are really the only threat you need as long as you can keep attacking with Ghired.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

A problem with the precon is the high avg. CMC which is 3.9. This number means that consistently four drops or higher CMC cards will be in your hand which is very slow. Early game you don't want lots of four or higher CMC cards in your hand because you will not be able to cast them. Adding low mana cost ramp by cutting high mana cost cards can help to reduce this number.

There's a lot of high CMC cards here, in fact there's 36 four or higher CMC cards which is too much. There's a lot of high CMC threats and I don't think you need all of them. Instead of playing so many high CMC threats replace some of them with tutors which can get you the better cards/threats into your hand.


To be more competitive I would expand on combos and use most of the high CMC card spots for more combo cards rather than big creature threats. You have done this some what already by adding Purphoros, Helm for Aurelia and Godo, but consider expanding further. Cards for combos to consider adding:

Combos that go with these cards:

  • Kiki + Helm + Purphoros or Tremors for infinite damage.
  • Kiki + Conscripts infinite hasty token Conscripts to attack. Add Purphoros or Tremors for infinite damage.

Outside of combos Kiki is good with populate because he can make a token copy of a nonlegendary creature and if you populate the token then that token doesn't go away at end of the turn. Kiki combos with Helm for infinite Kikis since the token copy of Kiki that's created by Helm is not legendary which allows Kiki to copy it.

  • Assault + Umbra + five lands for infinite combats.
  • Assault + Ventmaw for infinite combats and infinite green or red mana.

More infinite combat combos is good with Ghired because his power comes from him attacking. Outside of the combos Assault is a good card with Ghired because it can give you more attacks which is more populate.

A problem with Helm in all the combos, even Godo, is it's slow because you have to pay the five mana cost to equip it. Aid is a one drop which is worth including for Helm and Selves.

Good luck with your deck.

triproberts12 on I Need a Hero! (Gerrard budget combo)

Nice. I'm building a Gerrard artifact combo deck, too, but recurring the 7 versions of Spitemare with mass burn. I think you could make good use of a few of the tricks I've discovered.

What really drew me to Gerrard was his potential to completely flip the narrative on Boros' issues with ramp and draw. Memory Jar is basically a repeatable draw 7. If it's too pricey, be on the lookout for it in Commander Legends. Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble are repeatable cantrips.

As for mana, Lotus Bloom is a repeatable Black Lotus, since once it's out, Gerrard brings it back with no time counters.

Some added spice: Scourglass is a repeatable Wrath. Scroll of Fate lets you return whatever you manifest face-up. Razia's Purification is just the most absurd Plague Wind, especially with artifact lands out. Same for Cataclysm. Follow it all up with a Geode Golem to keep wiping the board and replaying Gerrard every turn, and get Ichor Wellspring in there for some more card draw!
