Chainer's Edict Discussion

abby315 on H: Modern & Standard staples ...

1 day ago

Looking to keep the trades flowin!

I have some modern/EDH things I'd like to get rid of, like:

2 Devoted Druid
1 Glimpse the Unthinkable (RAV)
1 Glen Elendra Archmage (EVE)
3 Street Wraith 2 (FUT) (The cool ones ;D) 1 (MMA)
1 Dryad Arbor (FUT)
1 Sword of the Meek (FUT)
1 Chainer's Edict (V13)
1 Master of Cruelties
1 Nourishing Shoal

...etc etc. I have a ton of shtuff in the binder.

I also have some Standard cards I don't want, like:

3 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
1 Nissa, Vital Force
1 Vizier of the Menagerie
4 Saheeli Rai
3 Aetherworks Marvel (I know, I play banned decks)
4 Thing in the Ice  Flip
1 Dread Wanderer

...etc etc.

Check out my wants. Biggest standard stuff I'm looking for is Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Liliana, Death's Majesty. I will usually trade for the Kaladesh fast lands, too. But if you want one of the above cards, just let me know and I'll check out your binder. :)

This deck is beautiful! You could include Necrotic Ooze combo. Expensive additions: Sneak Attack, Yawgmoth's Will and Crucible of Worlds. Weathered Wayfarer can be cut in my eyes. Anguished Unmaking instead of Vindicate. Chainer's Edict, Past in Flames or maybe even Living Death... Get rid of See Beyond and Crippling Fatigue. Coalition Relic is better than Darksteel Ingot.

After some extensive testing I have had mixed results. Either I got a turn 2 or 3 beater and won, or they just used something like Chainer's Edict to kill my creature. I love the Horror of the Broken Lands, but really disliked the Grazing Kelpie. The kelpie came out too late and I never really wanted to see it in my hand. I will continue to test and refine the build :D

I'm curious exactly what you like with black here. Gets you a mediocre exalted effect and a mediocre unblockable dude, but I think blue is just a much better fit, as it gets you more and better unblockable guys, as well as better exalted, and can let you dig for more creatures.

Now on to replacements for Mind Rot and Doom Blade. And I forgot to mention, Duress is good, but you probably don't want to be running more than one or two in the mainboard, as it can be a completely dead card in certain matchups. Snuff Out is a potential option that can be cheated out for a big life swing. I also like Chainer's Edict because it's very good against Bogles decks, but it does struggle against stuff like aristocrats or stompy, really anything that has Young Wolf. Hideous End, Grasp of Darkness, or Victim of Night are all options here as well.

Past removal, there are some utility cards that could be good here. Unearth is great cause everything's low CMC. Night's Whisper or Read the Bones can stop you from running out of steam lategame. Maybe you could just run some solid creatures as well, Chittering Rats provides some sweet disruption and has a fine body. I'd look to cut your Guardians of Akrasa as well, as the card is pretty bad. I think you'd be better off with another solid creature rather than running one just because it says exalted on it.

Hi there! What do you think about Mizzium Skin? If your concern is preserving Nettle Drone or Mirran Spy it works just fine and for a single mana. You can also side something against Chainer's Edict.

Glad i could help.
For spot removal things like Silence the Believers, Cruel Edict, Chainer's Edict are very good. For board wipes i suggest Crux of Fate, Toxic Deluge and Languish.
You can also run some counterspells to help avoid something bad.

illumfolly Awesome brosef, glad you enjoy the build! Made a few adjustments. I just wanted Chainer's Edict for the absolute flavor.
