Tyrant-Thanatos on Pattern Recognition #60 - Masters

3 days ago

Gleeock: I'm in a similar boat myself. I don't have any Legacy/Vintage powerhouse $100+ cards, but playsets of Liliana of the Veil, Engineered Explosives, Tarmogoyf, Cavern of Souls, Bitterblossom, Crucible of Worlds, the list goes on. If these cards were all printed into the ground and dropped in value to <$2 each, yeah my collection would lose a lot of value, but I'd be having a fucking party.

Edit: Christ, is Veil really up above $100 now? ick.

My apologies as I was half awake when I commented on it. What are your thoughts on the Helm of Obedience, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed, Panharmonicon and Rings of Brighthearth?

Lastly, Boseiju, Who Shelters All seems REALLY interesting. I'm surprised I forgot about that card, I might need 2 add it to my mono black deck! That being said, it doesn't stop your creatures from getting countered, although you could always add a Cavern of Souls if that becomes an issue.

Nevertheless, it's a fun card I love using, just wanted to share that it's saved me more times than I can count (Ex: Target player takes an extra turn to stop Edric from infinite turns).

My favorite bird is Rimefeather Owl. Switch your basics for Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Islands, and you've got yourself one large bird. Although it actually pairs better with Rimescale Dragon and Training Grounds, so...

...and my tribal-bird deck is a pauper deck, so there's no good common to suggest from there; especially since you've already included Augury Owl.

Cavern of Souls! Cavern of Souls is a card that would boost this deck!

Oh yeah... budget.

Looks like you want Cavern of Souls over Unclaimed Territory. Unless this is budget.

Cavern of Souls always has a home in tribal decks, if you can justify spending the money. And I've had good luck pairing Impact Tremors with Krenko, especially in multiplayer.

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide

Rite of Flame is too weak and Mana Seism may be a bit too deep.

Good RocksChrome Mox, Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Everflowing Chalice, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Metalworker

Ok rocks to cut if you need more slots.Worn Powerstone, Jeweled Amulet, Fractured Powerstone

EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.

Draw and tutorsSensei's Divining Top, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Tormenting Voice, Wheel of Fortune, Imperial Recruiter,

I do not like Gamble without reliable graveyard interaction and I generally dont like Winds of Change especially if your opponents have any graveyard interactions.

Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.

Extra turns can be a big surprise win for this strategy. Love them. Final Fortune, Last Chance, Warrior's Oath

Artifact hate seems good but missing Vandalblast. By Force, Shattering Spree, Trash for Treasure.

Moon effects are strong but another meta call. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon

Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash

Equipment assists seem good for faster hands but kind fragile. Brass Squire and Magnetic Theft

Dire Fleet Daredevil is a good card.Goblin Welder, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, and Welding Jar are all good.

Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.

Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

cdkime on Slivers

You do not need any slivers with a converted mana cost over 2. They're a hyper-aggressive tribe, and your goal is to flood the board as quickly as possible.

To that end, you should focus on the best of the best.

I would run four copies of the following:

I would run 3 copies of the following, since their abilities are redundant:

The only 3 mana sliver I would consider is Harmonic Sliver, and only run that if you need artifact or enchantment hate.

For your lands, focus on cards that produce all 5 colours: City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Cavern of Souls (budget permitting/if your group allows proxies), Unclaimed Territory. Don't worry about City of Brass/Mana Confluence's damage--your goal is to flood the board with death long before your opponent can whittle you down.

Also, Aether Vial is obscenely good with slivers--probably a bit too expensive for casual play, unless your group allows proxies.

Edit: And be sure to keep your list to 60 cards!

what do you mean you can't fetch for Temple Garden? if by "fetch" you mean fetchland, you absolutely can. you can use a Windswept Heath (which you should replace the Horizon Canopy with) to grab a Temple Garden. replace the Field of Ruin with Sunpetal Grove. once you do that, the only land you'll have that can't produce colored mana for noncreature spells will be the Cavern of Souls, which means you can bump it up to 4. its not about "needing the color fixing", its about having an answer to counterspells. you also made a typo when you said "you don't want lands that don't produce colorless mana". i think you meant "colored", not "colorless". also, Aether Vial isn't mainly about color fixing (merfolk certainly don't use it for color fixing) or etb's. it helps with those for sure, but thats not the main reason people use it. its biggest advantage is the fact that it helps you start pumping out multiple creatures per turn which is pretty much what every aggro tribal deck wants. furthermore your Noble Hierarch could easily be replaced by a Birds of Paradise to save you a ton of money. Nature's Claim should be replaced with Disenchant or Naturalize. you don't want to just give your opponent 4 life.

and you mean "pseudo", not "sudo".
