Collector Ouphe Discussion
13 hours ago
Viscera Seer because it is such amazing utility. I would play it even if it didn't say scry 1 because it allows infinite sacs and counterplay to some of my opponents spells for the low low price of .
Collector Ouphe because when this bad boy is on my side of the field I can just sac him and go off when I need, while still dunking on the storm player with a single 2/2 green boi.
I look to be highly interactive despite my distaste for blue in general, and plan to force my opponents into positions where they need to interact or lose and even then I recur what I lost and just go for it again. I play things that are my own brew so my fast wins fly under the radar while there are fish hulk, opus theif, and najeela decks that people are rightfully more worried about. Cheap and efficient is my mantra.

Hey all! I've recently decided to let go of my Druid combo stuff, since I prefer a more Pod-like approach as opposed to all-in combo, so I have the following available:
Devoted Druid (Ultimate Masters)
Vizier of Remedies
Giver of Runes
Finale of Devastation
3 Duskwatch Recruiter Flip
Knight of Autumn
Birds of Paradise (2 M12, M11, Battlebond)
1 Silent Clearing
2 Walking Ballista
1 Ranger-Captain of Eos
3 Postmortem Lunge
1 Chord of Calling (M15, Russian)
1 Collector Ouphe
3 Veil of Summer
1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Dark Ascension)
4 Restoration Angel (Avacyn Restored)
3 Wall of Omens
So yeah, I'm keeping the lands, Hierarchs, Eldritch Evolutions, and Pod stuff (you can't pry Voice of Resurgence or Kitchen Finks from my cold dead hands), but most everything else I have is fair game. If there's anything else I may not have listed, feel free to ask about it. I probably have it. :)
I'm looking for:
Sword of Feast and Famine
4 Ice-Fang Coatl
1 Spell Queller
2 Monastery Mentor (I have 1 Korean if anyone wants to swap their English one)
1x Cavern of Souls (preferable Innistrad, either printing is fine tho)
2x Selesnya Sanctuary
1x Hornet Queen
I will also binder dive, but my binder seems to show only the foil/promos?

Not at this time. I'm not huge on it entering the battlefield tapped. And I also try to stay from mana rocks in this deck as they don't gel well with Collector Ouphe and can't be turned into hard hitting beat sticks like my mana dorks. It's on my radar though if I ever do some major overhauls to the deck.

grievances, I'm starting to accept the deck as it is at the moment. It's definitely not bad in in a casual to high power meta. Definitely not on par with competitive though. cEDH was not my intention for this deck, but it's still what I have to deal with at my local game store. This is why I keep the hate pieces like Collector Ouphe and Red Elemental Blast in.
That being said, I'm a firm believer that this aristocrats strategy can be built competitively. Throw in Food Chain, Squee, the Immortal, some other combo pieces, and all the best tutors you can find. Korvold is great a digging through your deck to get all the combo pieces you need.
If anything, I need to iron out the win con for the deck. Easiest seems to be commander damage, but it seems like a weak strategy given the limited amount of protection for Korvold I have in the deck. I am still investigating this.

Hey, I'm by no means a very competitive player (in terms of cEDH) but it looks like you don't have many artifacts. Maybe Collector Ouphe could help slow down your opponents? Also I guess it comes down to preference, but I feel like Pernicious Deed is usually better than Gaze of Granite. Even though it doesn't hit planeswalkers, separating the cost often makes it easier to use with a higher X value. Honestly though, this already looks like a pretty solid list if you don't want pure combo.

Spidersilk Armor ended up being awesome so far. Very happy with the addition.
I am really not a fan of Song of the Dryads. I don't like how slow it is. I'm also not convinced there's too many commanders that get hit hard by it in our meta (apart from my own, obviously).
Krosan Grip is too much mana. I'm not TOO worried about my removal getting countered currently, or at least not worried enough to slide in K Grip.
I've considered Static Orb and friends before. I've just never really wanted to make this into a primarily-stax deck.

Favorite Formats: Commander, Two-Headed Giant draft
Favorite Deck: Bloodstone Circle This is the first deck I have made with any cEDH viability, and Karador will always hold a special place in my heart.
Favorite Guild: I enjoy orzhov because I like tax effects and the colors can make for some crazy fun graveyard strategies.
Favorite Shard: Jund A good aristocrats strategy is one of my favorite things. We have removal for days. I mostly see jund as golgari++
Favorite Wedge: Abzan I get to use all of the best parts of my favorite 3 colors, but they are all improved by the addition of both the other colors.
Card that best represents you: Collector Ouphe
Hobbies Outside of Magic: I enjoy a lot of hobbies, but instead of a laundry list of hobbies I will just say binge watching T.V. series with my wife and playing with our pup.
Tell us about your life outside of TappedOut: I'm a 27 year old man living with my wife of almost 2 years now in the big city of Lincoln, NE. I work for a telecommunications company as a locator (damage prevention). We have a 1 year old australian shepherd/border collie mix named Kaya. In roughly a month our little family is getting 1 bigger.
How did you come up with your username? Karador, Ghost Chieftain is the first single card I bought with the purpose of making a commander deck. I have played some version of that deck off and on since 2012ish.
What first appealed to you about Magic? Not sure, I just saw a deck at a local board game event and decided to get it. It was an infect deck and I pulled a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon in the pack that came with it.
Why is Magic important to you now? It is a way for me to flex my mental game and keep myself practicing problem solving.
What are your thoughts on the current metagame (any format)? The current competitive EDH format has a boogeyman in the form of sushi hulk. I think that a 2 card 0 boardstate instant speed win is something that needs to be removed from the format.
Are there any cards or strategies you feel overcentralize the metagame? Sushi hulk strats are very very strong right now. Apart from that, consultation decks are in an amazing spot with the new Thassa's Oracle slotting in instead of labman. Funny enough, sushi hulk is a consultation deck. I truly believe that Flash and either Demonic Consultation or Tainted Pact should get a ban and we should get a couple unbans to even it out.
How do you deal with a dominant new deck, card, and/or player in your pod? Learn how to best affect their strategy. Full stop.
What is your approach to deckbuilding? Come up with a strat that I want to win with and only put in things that work with it or that prevent me from losing.
Share with us some of your favorite decks by others on TappedOut you feel are underappreciated/underrated.
- Are there any future releases you’re looking forward to? Why or why not? I just look forward to more magic.

I know it has been a while since you got a reply.. so i'll give it a shot.
You have some good ideas about Dosan the Falling Leaf, City of Solitude and Defense Grid. But those cards can work in a way that lets opponents win. On top of that this deck does not need those kind of protection. Example: Someone tries to disrupt your dredge combo, then just toss another land (or sacrifice a land through Safekeeper or Squandered Resources) and get a draw trigger on the stack. Bottom line is that this deck has no need of such protection and can play other, more useful cards, instead.
Grafdigger's Cage Does not really stop Thassa's Oracle ETB ability. Players will hard cast Oracle in response to Cage being on the board instead of getting Oracle from Hulk. Although Torpor Orb does a better job than Grafdigger's Cage in stopping ETB triggers.
