DlCK on Semi-Competitive Jodah, Archmage Eternal

1 week ago

This deck is nearly perfect, but there's just a few areas of weakness that demand immediate attention.

First off, I would remove the following cards: Abrupt Decay, Angel's Grace, Anguished Unmaking, Animate Dead, Arcane Denial, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Badlands, Bayou, Birds of Paradise, Blood Crypt, Bloodstained Mire, Brainstorm, Breeding Pool, Chromatic Lantern, Chrome Mox, City of Brass, Command Tower, Cultivate, Cyclonic Rift, Dance of the Dead, Deathrite Shaman, Decree of Pain, Delay, Demonic Tutor, Enter the Infinite, Exploration, Farseek, Fellwar Stone, Fist of Suns, Flooded Strand, Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, In Garruk's Wake, Intuition, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jodah, Archmage Eternal, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Laboratory Maniac, Lotus Cobra, Maelstrom Wanderer, Mana Confluence, Mana Crypt, Marsh Flats, Merciless Eviction, Misty Rainforest, Mox Diamond, Myojin of Night's Reach, Myojin of Seeing Winds, Mystic Remora, Mystical Tutor, Nature's Claim, Nature's Lore, Negate, Omniscience, Oracle of Mul Daya, Overgrown Tomb, Painful Truths, Polluted Delta, Praetor's Counsel, Progenitus, Rhystic Study, Rise of the Dark Realms, Savannah, Scalding Tarn, Scrubland, Sensei's Divining Top, Show and Tell, Skyshroud Claim, Sol Ring, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, Storm Herd, Survival of the Fittest, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Sylvan Library, Taiga, Tainted Pact, Temple Garden, Terastodon, Three Visits, Time Stretch, Toxic Deluge, Tropical Island, Tundra, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Underground Sea, Vampiric Tutor, Verdant Catacombs, Volcanic Island, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Watery Grave, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills, and Zacama, Primal Calamity.

There's really nothing you could replace these cards with that would make this deck competitive, so I'd recommend just stopping here. Good work.

Hi there, love the pirate theme for this deck and tribal decks always look great.

One major upgrade to this deck that I could think off is to start by upgrading your lands. You can go for the cheaper options Drowned Catacomb or City of Brass or begin investing in fetch/shock lands.

I would also recommend adding some better board clear as it will become essential when you are playing against better decks, Anger of the Gods is a good example of cheapish boardclear but a great investment is Cyclonic Rift, a commander staple.

Really cool deck though and is quite unique compared to others!

On the whole I really like the list. I run a much more casual version of Selvala but it's nice to see more optimised lists.

A few recommendations I would make though:

TearsInRain23 on I Can't Decide On Which ...

Not true. Most of the warriors skewer to red, green, and white. Just some knowledge into what you need color wise and a few cards like Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Forbidden Orchard, and get a Chromatic Lantern and thats all the real expense you need. It worked for my Najeela deck.

4th change:

Thanks for the suggestion MurderForBrunch, I didn't think about Imprisoned in the Moon. I'm going to organize my enchantment pretty soon. For Merciless Eviction, it's a great card, but I want to test a new card from the commander 18 edition first.

Now the new change:

Ajani Steadfast for Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver

City of Brass for Llanowar Wastes

Windgrace's Judgment for Putrefy

Forge of Heroes for Saltcrusted Steppe (that realy a test)

Elspeth, Sun's Champion for Jace, Architect of Thought

Aminatou, the Fateshifter for Garruk Wildspeaker

Sharpeyekilla on Xantcha first draft

no Evolving Wilds, Rocky Tar Pit, or Terramorphic Expanse need xantcha out asap and one turn can make a difference, Tainted Peak, Cabal Coffers, and Cabal Stronghold if you feel swamps are abundant; Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard for multi colored; Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth cuz you're gonna play it; Shadowblood Ridge cuz filter lands are cool

Penthoplayer on 100% cEDH Aminatou shenanigans

So, I see a lot of changes for general power level upgrades. I can't give anything specific to this deck, as I can't tell what the deck is attempting to accomplish at a quick look through the list, but these should be in every cEDH list that can run them.

First of all, remember cEDH is a turn 3 format, so you need all your lands to enter untapped unconditionally. I see several that have more difficult to reach requirements, only 5 fetches when you should run 9 (missing Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest, and Scalding Tarn), no true duals (Tundra, Underground Sea, and Scrubland), which I understand due to price, and no City of Brass or Exotic Orchard. I also don't see an Enlightened Tutor, Timetwister (Once again, I recognize it's expensive, though), Imperial Seal, Chrome Mox, Flusterstorm, Dispel, or any way to get those expensive creatures into the graveyard to Reanimate, or any reanimation spells. That curve is incredibly high. Average CMC without a lot of reanimation should be About 1.8, and your's is at 3.27.

enpc on Bed Hair: cEDH Edition

Permafrost: Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Endless Atlas is ok here, however to make it work I think it would be worth swapping out Mana Confluence, City of Brass and potentially even Clifftop Retreat with more basics. I have done a bit of testing with a much more casual version of Aurelia (which granted runs a lot less fetches) however I found that even with its mana base it still took a fair bit of time before I had of the same basics.

That being said, it does seems like a good jump start card in case you do stall out, however for this build I'm not sure if it's the right fit. The deck is after all designed ot either get an explosive start, or just lose :P I will however add it to the maybeboard as I want to give this one some more thought.
