Chancellor of the Forge Discussion

dbpunk on Let's talk myriad again

I need a copy of Blade for my BR deck, because Blade of Selves+Chancellor of the Forge+Purphoros, God of the Forge would be a great flavor win.

While the cards I'm going to list are not necessarily bad cards that can never be good in the deck, I still don't think they work as well as other cards do in your current build. I'll keep my reasoning brief.

You don't have enough draw condition in the current version of your deck to justify running mana doublers. Cut: Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, and Gauntlet of Power.

For similar reasons, later game mana rocks are also fairly pointless, they just slow you down for little benefit. Cut: Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo.

Also Temple of the False God doesn't really do anything either here.

I know I didn't give you quite as many suggestions for creature additions as I'm going to give you for creature cuts. If you want some more suggestions for creatures, just ask, I don't wanna flood you with suggestions.

You can afford to lose some tokens, so Dolmen Gate is unnecessary here.

Hall of Triumph and Goblin Caves are pretty bad as anthems go.

Rage Reflection is a sub-optimal card, many other cards are simply better.

Magistrate's Veto is interesting but unnecessary

This is not the right kind of deck for Mana Web.

Roar of the Crowd and Dogpile are both worse versions of (many) other cards.

Even though Boggart Shenanigans is literally a "Goblin Tribal Enchantment", it is still the worst way to generate free damage.

Smash to Smithereens is one of the most mediocre artifact removal card in the game.

That's all for now, if you want any other advice, just ask.

RobinMagic on Tana & Sidar /Expensive Deck Powerfull 3-5 player

1 month ago

@ djewell , Sidar is just there , to make sure that tana and some other creatures can create tokens, even if the enemy has some blockers. But Yeah, 60% of the time i dont need to play him cause in 5 player matchup one person cant block, he Still provides the white color and i dont saw a better option for a partner commander, i dont want to build a 4 color deck cause its alittle bit hard to create the manabase to make sure you always get the 4color mana available.

Shaman of Forgotten Ways is a fun card but i dont think he will ever stay in game for his winning abylity. Someone has removal in hand. And besides of that there are better managenerater available.

Second Harvest is a greate card but i decided to Play Rhys the Redeemed , just for the reason i have alot of creaturetutor in this deck so i think this card is better, but iam still testing it.

Most of the time i win with this deck cause of my creature tutors and play Craterhoof Behemoth + Chancellor of the Forge and just oneshott everyone on the table if i draw in Tooth and Nail or Defense of the Heart or some other cards to get my fettis on the board

You also win just with the card Cathars' Crusade

You will run into alot of bordwipes , so i put in more creatures that have alot of value and getting stronger just by themselves, so you can recover bordremoval, iam dont wanna play cards like Purphoros, God of the Forge that are slowly killing the enemy and at least had to be 1 or 2 turns on the borad to win the game, cause such cards are so powerfull you will play 1v4 or 1v5 during that time and most likely not win the game.

The strategy is, to generate alot of tokens possible with playing alot valueble token generators and then use your Heavy Stuff to just oneshott everyone or atleast 2 people at once.You maybe think some cards making no sense like Bear Umbra, its just a verry verry strong card, and has alot of value for only 4 mana. thats why i play them they just strong cards

I play alot 4player or 5 player edh casual games, we just dont wanna play turn 3 or 4 combodecks cuase thats not fun. But still we play alot of strong and expensive cards.

And sry for my english

Thank you for the tips, now that I'm looking at it, I probably will replace Dragon Appeasement, just not for Fecundity, a lot of the time I'll have my opponents creatures die with Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos, so I'd rather not give my opponents cards. I also really like the idea of Cryptolith Rite, so thanks for that. Typically I'll use Conjurer's Closet for Avenger of Zendikar or Chancellor of the Forge, I dont on if I'll get rid of it yet, I'll think on it.

I've been playing Prossh for a while and some of the cards i liked a lot with him are Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Smothering Abomination, Chancellor of the Forge and Shamanic Revelation.
Also, since Berserk is on your list of potential additions, take a look at Tainted Strike and Temur Battle Rage.
