Confiscation Coup Discussion

multimedia on Growing Pains (feat. Tishana)

Hey, consider Confiscation Coup? Currently other than Longtusk Cub in the sideboard you don't have an energy sink, card to use extra energy that Attune and Refiner makes. Coup goes with your game plan of having creatures for Rites and Tishana by permanently stealing one of your opponent's creatures. Rather than killing your opponent's creatures take them and benefit from them.

Nissa's Bounty

Hello fellow brewers,

I have been playing this deck for sometime now and it has been a total blast to play. I have slowly added a removed pieces the more I have played it and it is at a fairly good spot right now. It does decently well against the MTGO Standard meta, outside of Abzan Tokens, which I have tried to rectify by adding Rampaging Ferocidon to the sideboard. I have yet to play the matchup with that card though so no telling if it will be enough to overcome the token deck's lifegain.

So far I am happy with all of the cards except Ripjaw Raptor. It AT MOST draws me one card, but more often than not it will get Fatal Pushed and that feels really bad. I am also on the fence about Weaver of Currents. It was put in the deck as a way to quickly cast a big Nissa or Aetherwind Basker (more on this card in a bit), but unless I see it on turn 3 I am normally not happy to see it. I would love some input on replacements for these cards.

Cards I have been happy with are all of the "Energy Package" cards. They are all great. Aehterwind Basker has actually been surprisingly good. If the opponent doesn't have a answer it will almost always win the game the next turn. Bounty of the Luxa has also been great as a source of card advantage and the mana can make for some explosive turns. Nissa, Steward of Elements has been great on many levels. An early Nissa can fix your draws for a turn or 2 and a late Big Nissa can unexpectedly close out a game.

Sideboard is pretty straightforward but I would welcome some input on that as well.

This deck does really well against many mid-range strategies and control(particular post board). It is a 50/50 matchup against mono-red. Tokens, as I mentioned is this deck's worst matchup. Short of Confiscation Coup a resolved The Scarab God can spell trouble for this deck, so I am trying to find better answers for that. I appreciate any an all feedback and Happy Brewing!

Temur Sideboard Plan: One of the best decks in the format, but not aggressively overpowered. What is OP is bristling hydra. I also expect they'll bring in counter magic and confiscation coup to take out my Scarab Boi.

~Side Out~

  • Out: 4x Kitesail Freebooter - Card Doesn't seem to do much work against their deck.

  • Out: 1x Essence Extraction - Good against their servants and their refiners, but ultimately not the best option here.

  • Out: 1x Commit / Memory - This is slow and only really answers chandra once they are down, we have Vraska's for that, so it's not a big issue

~Side In~

  • In: 2x Doomfall - Get rid of those nasty Hydras and Chandra's before and after they hit.

  • In: 1x Gonti, Lord of Luxury - Blocks well and snags maybe a glory boi or something else

  • In: 1x Search for Azcanta  Flip - When this flips it nets the mana and gets you card advantage. Really good to help stabilize or just see more cards.

  • In: 1x Bontu's Last Reckoning - If they go wide with thopters or have a hydra this is a quick and easy answer. Not great that I can't untap, but if we play it right, we'll have more mana to do stuff with later.

  • In: 1x Negate - They likely bring in negate so the extra can help protect our guys or just snag a Chandra, Torch of Defiance if that's their plan. It can also just stop Confiscation Coup

It looks pretty fun but I think it would be better if you went more aggro for example removing Confiscation Coup, Swarm Intelligence, Kefnet's Last Word and other control spells. To put in more things like Rigging Runner and more Dire Fleet Captain.

I would recommend Alchemist's Refuge, Aethersnatch, Gather Specimens, Insidious Will, Kefnet's Last Word, Confiscation Coup, and Dack Fayden. I played a deck similarly with Mizzix (It is now time to put on your 3-D glasses). You may also want to consider Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar to say opponents creatures after you steal them, or sac your own so they can't be manipulated.

Hi lords2001, thanks for the advices!
I made this deck with cards i already own, if i can find a The Scarab God i'll put in.. i know that card wins on its own..
I want to try to use Kefnet and activate him with it's ability if necessary, maybe it's a little bit slow but i think it's better than Ripjaw because the dinosaur stays under "pumped" fatal push or removal and costs 1 more than the blue god. Also it isn't evasive and i wanted to stay at a very low cmc (except for Confiscation Coup post-side) this allows to play with only 21 lands.
I do like Hostage Taker but it costs 4 then i should to increment land count.. Gifted Aetherborn is too easy to remove (red spells) not mention that i've twelve 2-drops and i don't want to remove anything of them because of the counters synergy :)
Anyway i'll try this on thursday we'll see how it goes.. at least it seems fun :)

Ok guys so since I'm running Glimmer of Genius I've had the idea of running Confiscation Coup

Getting off one glimmer then a coup could be interesting to steal some big bodies in the top end.
