Chainer, Nightmare Adept Discussion

BMHKain on Chain Severed, but nobody cares ...

2 days ago

Foreword: "There are no miracles in this world. There is only coincidence and necessity, and what people make of it."

  • Yuu Himura; ef: A Tale of Memories

This is an anime I really wished I could actually watch long ago. Never again. Yuu-san is pretty much correct on this whole reality. I would've chose another quote for this, & should've, but I'll save it for Post-Throne of Eldraine release. After all, I'm mediocre compared to so many. What anime quote would you describe me the most? I'm actually intrigued... :D

Hot Seat [ˈhät ˌsēt] NOUN informal (The Hot Seat) Hotseat (noun) 1. The position of a person who carries full responsibility for something, including facing criticism or being answerable for decisions or actions. "It's been a bad week for the men in the hot seat" NORTH AMERICAN The electric chair.

(MTG Slang) 1. A group of MTG Cards placed in a section besides the Mainboard, or Sideboard used for what deserves a place in the Mainboard as a part of the deck in exchange for a cut from said board in question.

無限大虐殺の終焉の哀詩 (The Subname Kuso-Traslation is "The Dirge of the Finale of Infinite Genocide") (Note we use the Subject, Verb, Object rule (SVO), where the Nipponese swap both the Verb & Object to each other's initial position (SOV). This is the name for a Yarok, the Desecrated deck, but I seriously need help on the JP part; if any...)

(I apologize if I'm not being as concise as people want me to recently, but I'm not making multiple threads at one time; just so you can oppose me by not posting at all.)

Outside of some other decks in the works, I figured the best I can do is show what's still in the works; & explain to the best of my abilities what they need...

Naya. There is only one rule. Carry even a Godsire killing weapon, & Naya kills you worse. these colors hate Equipment, even if it's a Wolf Mount. As Tana, the Bloodsower & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder are partners at this idea, they WILL go Anti-Meta against the Naturally Appropriate. Epuipment is the prime part of this deck, though it somehow added the idea of Sap-Swarm in unintentionally. Though I still want this to be a full-fledged Equip-Matters Voltron deck as a whole. Though the Sap-Saccing might actually be useful...

Pick on Mono- Burn as much as you wish. I want this deck to go on one speed; SoL (We got Heat Ray , which is a literal Laser, & Some card in MTG History that is Firearm Based, & isn't Australia and New Zealand based (PORTAL crap.)) This deck has only one option: Genocidal Burn. Using powerful Burn spells as well as powerful Copy Spells; & Mana Doublers among other things, to burn any to a crisp. Each Point of Damage even makes more mana for it's Commander: Neheb, the Eternal . A legitimate beast of a soldier, the more Burn you deal, the more mana you get to use even more. The only restriction I have for this deck is that I want it to break a Status Quo, superior deck archetypes pushed to a limit beyond theirs. Using cards that help w/ Sources, & even try & find some Draw-Go that was forced out of the deck. Any ideas for this is great. But I'd also like some other ideas for other Burn ideas. But just imagine a Minotaur burning you for blood sport. I wish you luck for what this deck needs; if Rummaging won't help, how about Artifact Draw? :)

ONE WORD: Triskaidekaphobia . This deck needs one thing; 13 cards cut to the legitimate 100 card standard. If Caerwyn is correct about the Competitive Meter; stated that even at 100% Competitive is actually very weak, & that this is 79% Casual being a monster to deal with; something seems off with this notion; & it's not that I'm failing But even the senior staff doesn't seem to want to address this issue; but what does More Casual, More Competitive, & Feedback each suppose to do? Nobody answered this question ever since the first time I asked. But I digress. All this deck needs is 13 cards to cut. & an audience for what is still going wrong w/ the Meter. But I'm also going for Chainer, Nightmare Adept if nobody wants to help Ol' Xantcha. But if so, HOW to restrict access from Exile? After that, Triskaidekaphobia will die. Good Luck. ^_^

Even the Unknown needs help as well. Focusing on the Morph cards, as well as Morph abilities like Megamorph & Manifest (Are Manifest Morph Abilities?), this deck is made to make discounts as Morph Sides for free, & easily draw-go's like mad. W/ a lot of awesome Morphs in there, & support for the CMDR & the Morphs as well, even stuff like Krosan Grip can be countered for reason I forgot. (Really. I actually forgot. :/) Such H4X are literally at your potential; turning over Morphs for free, discounts to make Morph Cards cast , & is a beast of a deck when your opponents can't look underneath either. Such mercy from your opponents... But what would you keep to cut? What would you cut in general? What would you replace? How would you make this concept of a TRUE Morph CMDR Deck any better?



(Get the sexual jokes out of your head; Brass will kill you if you have a joke that ISN'T of such idea (Booty? No friggen thanks.), & has her, & the Coalition to Systematically kill all MTG Staff for rejecting Firearms in MTG. (Uh, make a Spaghetti Western themed Plane of Existence already?! You have Red Dead Redemption 1 & 2, Clint Eastwood's works, Use a damn .357 Magnum in your stuff already!)

Yep, Pirate Tribal, but I'd like some improvements where Ol' Salty Brass was inept at achieving since the Ixalan Block; Even now. It seems when this is used, Pirates seem to benefit from Sheer Aggro; & can benefit from Explore effects, & Treasures. Revel in Riches is one wincon here, but this deck has several in mind, & has several H4X'd cards that can do stuff like Time Control Timestream Navigator , Pox Effects Dire Fleet Ravager , even the idea of Aggro meets Ramp makes me think; (WHAT THE HELL HAS EVERYONE HAVE AGAINST PIRATES!?) Raid & Explore Effects are great here, but the individual abilities of Pirates are where they shine.

Q&A: Why did you have to do a follow-up to something already existing?

Outside of "ADAM RUINS MTG", Yarok, Pashalik Mons Goblin Tribal, & a CMDR in Jeskai Colors that needs to be as close as Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge , Nobody wanted not to feign interest of this in the slightest; but I dunno why. Was I referencing crap again?

I included all 5 decks in hopes somebody knows MTG Slang, & sees what a Hotseat even is. Then start from there work on the next when able. Goal? To get all these decks reformed so I can get to my next two projects before I work on an "ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING" themed Vorthos/Melvin Deck based on actual problems w/ MTG as a whole. So why not call that deck "ADAM RUINS MTG". The question now is, What colors would fit Ol' Adam Conover? I-I dunno. I use 5 color as a base, & work my way there.

Also, a cEDH Boros Deck is still in the works, & I'd rather I have an actual Boros Player in the subformat help me out on that; Such people I was w/ before I doubt they were actual cEDH Players, but I'll work on the deck later on; eventually of course. I do have a list of stuff I could use though, but I want to try & finish some combos before going to make a list; Some cards though includes:

Eldrazi Displacer (Flickers CMC <=3 creatures for many kinds of Wincons)

Sun Titan (Can be Displaced Lecht & Rink to recur so much.)

Hellkite Tyrant (What? CMDR 2019 gave us a Pirate w/ huge Treasure Support!)

(I'll resume later.)

That said, I'll update this is oppose to making individual threads that overfill the forum topics w/ my name etched on it. If this isn't a good idea, I wish not to be right.

Thanks for the help, even though you didn't. Maybe this time you'll help?

DubbaDub on Garna Reanimation Station

Chainer, Nightmare Adept seems like a great addition to this deck. Discard outlet, haste to some creatures, and let's you play things you didn't get with Garna? Yes please!

Also, Hell's Caretaker seems great, as it's free reanimation at the cost of bouncing something. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is also a free sac-outlet and lets you tutor repeatedly, maybe instead of Rakdos, Lord of Riots ?

dingusdingo on cEDH in C19

1 week ago

Atla Palani, Nest Tender

5 cmc for a polymorph on a stick in naya colors. No haste, cheesy combo requires 3 cards with weak quality outside combo usage. Not for cEDH.

Elsha of the Infinite

5 cmc for bad Future Sight . Too expensive for a card advantage engine when Tymna is available, another pass for cEDH.

Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero

"Egg" commander that suffers due to singleton nature of the format and color restrictions. Not enough card density to run an actual egg build, maybe potential with future egg prints.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth

Possible Doomsday builds, but the lack of good pile crackers means your best bet is a Chromatic Star on turn 1. If you want to DD just play Grenzo.

Anje Falkenrath

Serious potential here. As stated above, reanimator to win with B/R tutors and using free cycles on madness cards to run an effectively 70 card deck.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept

Potential combo lines are shot in the foot by having to pay the hard cost for the creatures. Doesn't generate tutor or card advantage from the command zone. Pass

Dockside Extortionist

This card is money. It will have a similar effect to Smothering Tithe in cEDH, strong card value on its own for decks that can slot it, a nightmare with effects that can milk it for value. Coming to a Godo deck near you!

SynergyBuild on cEDH in C19

Atla seems very weak. The ability to combo with the Stalactite and Altar is like any 3-card combo with one piece being a commander. Unless the combo pieces tutor for each other, are able to all be tutored by a separate card, or the commander can tutor for at least one of the pieces, or the combo is 1-3 mana entirely, the combo isn't reasonably viable on a general basis.

Elsha seems... kind of bad? It is a combo enabler with Top, and Flash, no reveal, only noncreature Future Sight seems okay, but a 5 mana creature variant that any Swords to Plowshares or counterspell can deal with seems weak. Maybe with enough protection, such as Silence type effects, the deck can just be a combo deck with Elsha as a piece, but as a Storm Engine, I doubt it will be able to reliably go off without too little protection. Maybe a midrange combo deck in the realms of tier 2-3.

Other commanders:

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is some high-tier mono-black Doomsday / Aetherflux Reservoir storm, you can look it up, it is really good, too good to explain here.

Anje Falkenrath can cycle through all madness cards for free really fast. I am sure there are some ways to abuse this. I don't know any off of the top of my head, but a Razaketh, the Foulblooded reanimator plan seems reasonable. Just run normal b/r tutors, a few reanimation spells, rakazeth, the combo you plan to use him with, and then lands and fill the rest with madness enablers and fast mana, I'd imagine you could do well with it, not entirely sure. Maybe there is a doomsday line as well, like another Grenzo.

Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero is apparently a good eggs commander, but I haven't seem any list. Ichor Wellspring , Krark-Clan Ironworks , etc do seem to have the proper synergies for a sweet list though.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept seems possibly decent. Buried Alive for Zealous Conscripts , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Phyrexian Delver might be a thing, but I am not sure how much I am a fan of that. It may just be a decent value engine like Elsha.

Sevinne, the Chronoclasm could be reasonable with cards like Snapcaster Mage or Mission Briefing , Deep Analysis , and stuff like that, but is probably bad. Pariah's Shield is worth a mention here.

Pramikon, Sky Rampart is a reasonable include into some decks to fight Tymna the Weaver , kind of a Silent Arbiter effect, able to deal well with some blood pod decks in the meta, but isn't really a commander for cEDH, unless if Spark Double , Sakashima the Impostor , or Helm of the Host for no attacks at all seems useful.

Grismold, the Dreadsower , Volrath, the Shapestealer , Rayami. First of the Fallen , Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , and Ghired, Conclave Exile just seem bad as commanders go.

I may go over the other cards more indepth, like the legendaries, but for now:

Cliffside Rescuer , Backdraft Hellkite , Mandate of Peace , Road of Return , Sudden Substitution , Sanctum of Eternity , Leadership Vacuum , Sevinne's Reclamation , Selesnya Eulogist , Mire in Misery, Selesnya Eulogist , and Bone Miser seem posssible, but Dockside Extortionist is the best of them by far.

No data for this card yet.
