Chainer's Edict Discussion

Drakorya on Specifically Anti-Narset List

Is this for 1v1 or multiplayer?

Stranglehold is a good card against them. Other than that, I've found sweepers and blockers can do the trick. It depends how much protection/evasion your Narset player uses in their deck.

Cheap sweepers would be ideal: Bontu's Last Reckoning, Toxic Deluge, Chain Reaction, etc

Edict effects would work well too, since Narset is usually their only creature. Diabolic Edict, Chainer's Edict, Fleshbag Marauder, Innocent Blood, Liliana of the Veil, Merciless Executioner, Slum Reaper, Smallpox, Syphon Flesh, Tyrant's Choice.

So Black-Red looks like a good choice. Maybe use Mogis, God of Slaughter as your commander?

Thanks dude! All credit to you for the idea, Death Spark is my new favorite deck.

I'm trying to figure out what the best spot removal is for this deck... Obviously, we'd prefer a creature or at worst, an enchantment, since Commune with the Gods can grab it. But, at least for Chainer's Edict, we can flash it back if it's milled...

I couldn't find much in the way of reasonable creature-based removal outside of Faceless Butcher, which seems pretty bad, to me. I'll have to go check out enchantments... Spire Golem and Thermo-Alchemist have been issues in my playtesting.

I'll be playing it this Thursday and Saturday IRL, and will offer results in an update after each tournament

I wasn't actually planning on commenting, but then I saw the final part of your description and I figured if you're asking :P, here goes:

Grixis should be capitalised, as should If, the exclamation mark after comment should go after the brackets, typos doesn't need an apostrophe, and the full stop doesn't need to be there, so overall the sentence should read 'A deck inspired by another deck I found on the website as well as my love for Grixis. If you have any advice please leave a comment (that does include typos anywhere)!' (sentences in brackets aren't classified as seperate sentences). Also, since I'm leaving the comment, I may as well give some suggestions as well :)

I'd reccomend cutting a few extra turn cards and slower cards (Chainer's Edict doesn't seem to be adding too much to the deck) for an Inexorable Tide, some removal and definitely more lands - I'd say the minimum amount of lands for an edh deck would have to be 35, even with a lot of rocks. Also, Sorin Markov is definitely a must include in any EDH deck running black, Exsanguinate, Magister Sphinx and Worst Fears all in one 6-Drop! If you were looking for any inspiration (and considering I like to promote my own decks like a filthy upvote whore), you could always have a look at my deck here. It's a Grixis spellslinger deck but there's some just fairly decent Grixis cards in here, like a Phyrexian Arena or even just a Cruel Ultimatum, just for all around good cards :). Hope all this helped dude, gl with the deck!

I think it needs a little removal like Unmake or Chainer's Edict. Other than that looks cool!

Sweet brew, looks like fun!

I'd probably run 2 or 4 Ash Barrens instead of Evolving Wilds since it's a slower, higher-land deck.

Another good idea would be to cut one Bojuka Bog for a Swamp so you have double-black fetchable. Alternatively, it might be smarter to get rid of Murder altogether for Chainer's Edict, more Doom Blades, Diabolic Edict, etc

You could also sub out Grasp of Darkness for Journey to Nowhere (since it's easier to cast), and Cower in Fear for Shrivel, Nausea, or Echoing Decay. When you side them in, you could simply side your Soul Wardens out, to avoid the nonbo.

Not sure what to cut, but the feel of the deck also seems like it might want one Radiant Fountain, even if it's just in the SB for longer matchups.

Sweet brew -- cheers!

I usually like to run a Shred Memory. It's probably bad, but having at least a maindeck answer to graveyards, as well as a way to fetch some of your other silver bullets could be great.

Gets Terminate for creatures, Echoing Decay for tokens, Evolution Charm for even more modes, Putrid Leech for beats, Chainer's Edict against bogles, and more!

Gattison on Power 9 Equivalent in Pauper?

2 weeks ago

My friend, eyes2sky, and I came up with an interesting idea the other day, and I wanted to share it with everybody and see what others think.

Since Pauper is sometimes called "Legacy-lite," we were thinking that it would be cool to figure out a Power 9 equivalent for Pauper. A Pauper IX, if you will.

(And as far as aesthetics go, I think it would be cool to stylize it as "pauper ix," with (less advanced) Roman numerals. Cuz it feels right, lol.)

Anyway, we tossed this idea about for a bit, then realized that we would first need to define the Power 9, and then define what a Pauper IX would be.

So now I'd like to open this up to discussion. I'll go first, to get things rolling.

I feel that the Power 9 are not only some of the most powerful, broken cards ever, but that they are also a toolbox of stuff that can basically be slapped into any deck and make it better. Even if you're playing Mono- in Legacy, you can put a Mox Pearl in your deck and use it for a FREE somewhere.

I think that this is the aspect the Pauper IX should focus on. Not exactly staples, or the most expensive cards, but cards that every pauper player should know about, and will most likely want in their deck. Keep in mind since this is pauper, and commons-only, these cards would probably make 75% of all pauper deck better, whereas the Power 9 probably makes 95% of all Legacy decks better. So my choices below could all be debatable.

I also propose the Pauper IX contain only cards that BOTH MTGO AND paper players can use, so no Chainer's Edict or Goblin Grenade, imho.

  17. Nettle Sentinel - 1
  18. Prophetic Prism - 1
  19. Augur of Bolas - 1

...And this conversation would only benefit from having more participants, so I'm always open to new suggestions. What do other people have to say?

I hope nobody minds, but I'm going to tag bunch of known pauper players here, some of you I've spoken to before, others I've just seen around recently and am hoping would be interested: Modern_Brews, eyes2sky, LunaCelt, Boza, malfeischylde, Dalektable, UrbanGirlScout, Captain_Howel, thattallguy, Dark Magician , IlGuale, Wurmlover, TheHelvault.

Please share your thoughts. =)
