K1ngMars on Talrand, the Anti-Social Lord of Loneliness - EDH

I know you went budget, but I'd consider:

I know probably 17,5/4 of the cards of this list are not already in for a reason, but i didn't have un cazzo da fare for 20 minutes, so there you have it, I guess.

Made extensive changes to this deck since my previous post a few weeks ago, and it's even more fun now with lots of different ways to win. Polymorph puts all creatures from your library into play to trigger Ally ETBs. Fiery Gambit lets you flip coins to burn opponents out or draw lots of cards and untap your lands. Polymorphous Rush adds a new dimension to the deck, comboing with Silverfur Partisan for an explosive number of Wolves, and creating unexpected synergies with cards already in the deck like Harabaz Druid and Reef Worm. Zulaport Cutthroat works great with and without Polymorphous Rush since the deck kills its own creatures.

Looking to include a few of the cards in the last section of the description like Graceful Reprieve, Reincarnation, Accelerate, Twinflame, Nivmagus Elemental, Jwari Shapeshifter, Chasm Skulker, Mitotic Slime, and Xenagos, the Reveler, so any suggestions for cuts would be great.

Hey, all! I have a bunch of cards sitting in my binder not doing anybody much good, and I'd love to try and work out a few trades! My public TappedOut binder is sometimes a couple days behind when I update it, so here are some of the more exciting cards I have for trade:

And here are some of the cards I'm looking for:

And of course any fetchlands or shocklands you may have (I can give you a good deal on them if you do). I'm also totally open to offers or looking at other people's binders if you'd like. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Oh and this isn’t a deck that wants to smash, but there are a few good defensive blue creatures that synergize with card draw, like Chasm Skulker and Psychosis Crawler. And Reef Worm, because.

xyr0s on UR Horror Control

3 weeks ago

Some pretty obvious cards in any UR spell-heavy deck:

  • Opt/Serum Visions. Doesn't matter which one, but at least 4 of these are really helpful. And since they say "draw a card", they even trigger Chasm Skulker. With enough of these cantrips, you can go with a lower land count, since you can dig out land when you want to.

  • Remand. Tempo play of the week. Also draws a card.

  • Isochron Scepter. Because you have a pile of instants at 2 or less mana, and you'd like to play them a lot. Just a single copy should do, or you might like 2 of them.

  • Wandering Fumarole. When you have enough lands, and are running out of cards, this gives you a way to win, and somewhere to get something out of all that mana.

. Sygg, River Cutthroat could be funny, in a deck with evasive attackers and Lightning Bolts. Isn't a horror, though.

DrukenReaps on Group hug of death???

3 weeks ago

That is a silly question, it is like asking if there is a way to win with any deck :P

The answer is of course. Many of them use a combo like making everyone draw 1000 cards which usually works rather well since they already make you draw extra.

I've also seen a 5-color Nekusar, the Mindrazer which depending on what you draw and how you play comes off as a hug deck until you drop the nasty things you usually see with him.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest is technically a group hugger since he allows everyone to get lots of extra cards but most people run a lot of unblockable guys with him and I see people get chewed apart by Slither Blades.

Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis may be the most common group hugger. If you go to his EDHRec page you will see things like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Progenitor Mimic, Chasm Skulker, Selfless Squire, Omnath, Locus of Rage, and Psychosis Crawler. All of those can bring you closer to a win.

Often group hug is about giving everyone stuff until you are set to either combo or clean up the left overs with something big and nasty.

A_Magikarp on I Draw, You Mill. That Simple.

Hey justhereforthemagic, thanks for your interest in the list! You can definitely do what you want with the list and make any changes you think may make it better. I haven't been working on my lists for awhile now because things have gotten pretty busy.

One thing I can say for sure is that the list is not close to done; ideally I would trim it down to 60 cards and be able to add in much better additions. If you are trying for the budget build, then something along these lines can work in the casual format. I love to play this deck against my friends, but the focus is all over the place. If you want to focus on the mill, then I would take the Psychosis Crawlers out. If you want to try the creature // damage build, I would try to fit Chasm Skulkers in.

If you have them lying around, Brainstorm would definitely be the draw spell of choice over See Beyond. The miser Jace was just a filler card and can be easily replaced with more efficiency as well. Anyway, I would definitely be interested to see your version of the deck if you end up making one. Have fun with the list! :)

Farycane on Ezuri, claw of progress

1 month ago

Edit: Switched out the ones in the maybeboard and put in:

Brainstorm - Better synergy with Chasm Skulker

Mulldrifter - Synergy with Commander, 2 cards for 3 Mana Evoke or for 5 with a 2/2 Flying body

Forgotten Ancient - I Mostly play 3 or 4 Player Games, speaks for itself, triggers Ezuri, can put counters on Ezuri, Claw of Progress because he can't target himself

Krosan Grip - Need for Removal, split second is awesome

Commander's Sphere - Ramp and Draw in one card

Thassa, God of the Sea - Still scry 1 in upkeep, Indestructible, unblockable just a better Lifecrafter's Bestiary in this deck

Eternal Witness - get cards back from graveyard, Ezuri trigger, 2/1 Body

Riptide Mangler - as mentioned, it can end games with unblockable/trample in a +1/+1 counter deck
