Collective Restraint Discussion

Valius on Phenax: You Don't Need Those

1 week ago

I had a Phenax deck and it was super fun to play. Mine was a bit more turtle-y than yours, so I ran a suite of walls like Glacial Wall , Wall of Junk , and Guardians of Meletis . Equip those bad boys with Slagwurm Armor and you got yourself a milling machine and defense. There’s a ton of blue and colorless walls out there with ridiculous toughness that pair well with Phenax and give you pretty awesome blockers that let you just mill someone for 20+ at their end step if they dare attack you.

You also open up protection such as Crawlspace , Propaganda , Collective Restraint , and Koskun Falls . If you go that route. Phenax wants your creatures to tap to mill, which is why I liked walls, but swarm decks prove to be a problem, which is why I like these cards in my deck.

Otherwise, good combos in a deck like this that I enjoy was Notion Thief + Teferi's Puzzle Box so that opponents can never have cards, And Bloodchief Ascension since you’re running Mindcrank for infinite mill and damage. And Fraying Sanity could mean instant death to one person.

I really like the interaction Necrotic Ooze has with mill decks, and same with Grimoire of the Dead . Psychic Strike is a good milling counterspell with the added benefit of not needing double blue to cast.

And don’t forget, Laboratory Maniac is fantastic since you can also be a mill target, not just your opponents! Scry and Tunnel Vision yourself and you’ve won.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

Tata on Yarok combo landfall

1 month ago

Some cards you can consider: Farhaven Elf , Spellseeker , Prime Speaker Zegana , Terastodon , Scholar of the Ages , Tribute Mage , Palinchron

I think Villainous Wealth could be replaced by a number of much stronger cards. Tooth and Nail or Green Sun's Zenith both would be better, in my opinion, since your deck is almost entirely composed of creatures.

Painful Quandary seems like a very odd choice. It doesn't synergize with Yarok at all.

To be more consistent, I would play another ramp spell like Into the North , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , or Skyshroud Claim . I'd also consider playing a piece of catch-all interaction like Assassin's Trophy or Beast Within .

Collective Restraint is a good card, but I don't think you need to worry about being overrun. I'd replace it with something that protects you from something you actually are vulnerable to - boardclears. Something like Heroic Intervention or Asceticism would fit the bill.

Sorin_Markov_1947,

On behalf of the EDH (Or commander for you new comers) community i'd like to welcome you to the format - and i'd like to pay respects to your wallet - may it rest in peace. The first bit of advice I always give is to always write a well thought out deck description. You don't necessarily have to write a primer, but here is a good guide to go by: Epochalyptik's So You Want to Write a Primer? it's what got me started on writing well thought out points for people to follow when they visit my deck page. Quick tangent - the benefits to writing a primer are thus: 1. It forces you to think out all card interactions - making you better understand how the deck works. Additionally, if there is a flaw in your logic someone can point it out. 2. It gives people an idea of how your deck works, and what cards they should be suggesting. -end tangent.

Onward to actual card suggestions - interesting that you are leaning so heavily on Enchantments for Pillowfort construction. Since you are 5 color, have you considered using Collective Restraint , Koskun Falls , Ghostly Prison , or War Tax ? Each of the previously mentioned has excellent synergy with the already included Propaganda and builds nicely off of it. Additionally, a great resource for looking up cards that have a similar functionality to another card is MtGAssist.com. It's a great option outside of EHDREC

Oh, and before I forget - +1 for a new deck. I hope you enjoy your first foray into EDH/Commander. :)

How do you like Starfield of Nyx? In my experience it only makes your enchantments more vulnerable to sweepers which goes against one of enchantment's main strengths. If they don't get swept up, the majority of them are only 1/1s and 3/3s. You could consider Collective Restraint for more pillow forting or Flickering Ward for a repeatable way to trigger your enchantresses.

My list is Abzan, but here it is for reference. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/doom-plane-enchantress/

Have fun with your deck!
