Corridor Monitor Discussion

Your average converted mana cost is low enough to go to 33 or 34 if you had mana dorks.


    Rashmi, Eternities Crafter: Rashmi is incremental advantage. You and both know that you are going to play cards on other people’s turns, so why not get free stuff for doing so? Wavebreak Hippocamp does the same thing if you want more of this effect.
    Spellseeker: Spellseeker grabs most of the instants and sorceries in your deck and more food for Prime Speaker
    Thing in the Ice  Flip: I noticed that you don’t have ways to protect yourself. If played earlier, you can flip Thing in the Ice and reset that battlefield. It was dumb in other formats, it’s dumb in EDH as well.

Instants and Sorceries

    Swan Song: Another good counter spell, but you have that covered pretty well. Once again, no one cares about one 2/2 bird….no one…
    Nature's Lore: This is only and grabs any forest onto the battlefield. Most of the time, you are going to tutor for Forest, so why not grab Breeding Pool instead?



    Raging Ravine: Ok, it has your colors. Are you ever going to activate this man-land? Also, it comes in tapped. Gross….
    Arch of Orazca: I think Arch is better in decks that lack access to card draw. You’re in . Drawing cards, most of the time, is not going to be a problem for you.
    Frilled Mystic and Mystic Snake: I’ve fallen for this trap too. I don’t want to pay for a counterspell on a weak 2/2 body. Compare these two cards to other mana spells like Cryptic Command. This cards counters, protects, and draws cards. I prefer utility creatures with more flexibility.

I'm sure most people have already seen this combo but Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders can combo with Corridor Monitor. Hope you like the deck.

The Guide is looking sweet, and super helpful, hope you update it with the new cards as I have yet to update mine cause I just got back into commander recently and your article just makes it sooo much easier.

As far as new cards go, just to name a few:

=== Theros Beyond Death (TBD) ===

· Thassa, Deep-Dwelling: Blink themed, but I don't like it that much in the 99 cards.

· Thassa's Oracle: could scry lots of cards and even win the game, she's pretty much a staple in a lot of blue decks.

· Kiora Bests the Sea God: token themed, 8/8 hexproof kraken looks good.

· Elspeth Conquers Death: exile effect with a bit of stax in the 2nd counter.

=== Throne of Eldraine (TOE) ===

· Charming Prince: 3 options to choose from, could be okay.

· Corridor Monitor: could be useful.

· Mirrormade: worse copy artifact, but useful.

Again, kudos for the guide, I will be waiting for the next update!

Farycane on Emry, Lurker of the Loch [Turn 1 Victory]

Hey I don't know if you are still updating this List, but I may have some ideas that may be an upgrade

Crystal Vein for an Island

Narset, Parter of Veils not exactly sure what to take out, but not let opponents draw is great

Shimmer Myr Better than Leyline in many cases, recurable with Emry

Search for Azcanta  Flip Flip ability is super interactive

Soul-Guide Lantern Finally able to play artifact based onesided grave hate! Great new card

Sculpting Steel Phyrexian Metamorph depends a little, but there are some really nice artifacts to copy. Best I got was T1 2 Manacrypts but even Thornbite or Boots/Greaves are good to have as backup

Muddle the Mixture Tutor and Interaction, would kick out Tribute Mage for that

Riddlesmith would play rather than Vedalken Archmage. 2 Mana less und you have Grave access

Counterbalance really hard to Play against

Stifle for Disallow, 3 Mana ist much for a counter, Maybe Tale's End fits better than Stifle

Thoughtcast Visions of Beyond Some cantrip/Draw isn't always bad.

Retract Save from Artifact Wipes, basically a Ritual with fast mana, triggering Archmage/Riddlesmith etc again on recast

Freed from the Real not a loop, but really good untapper

Drafna's Restoration at instant this would be way too good, but still very good card

Chromatic Star Conjurer's Bauble take 1 mana more than the Other baubles (chromatic 2 to get startet), but drawing immediatly. Worth a Shot. Drawing a card extra on your turn can be important

Sensei's Divining Top Interactive, nearly unkillable, smooths draws

Tezzeret the Seeker Battlefield Tutor, 5 mana Reshape costs Boardpresence and finds 3 or less cmc (which is enough for combopieces) but Tezzi for 3 let's him stay on the Battlefield. Untapping Sol Ring and Vault e.g. with his +1 makes im nearly free

Corridor Monitor Not a good substitution for Mirran Spy or Chakram, but still usable. You can + on colorless mana as long as you have blue with KCI or Ashnods, as said, not nearly as good, but good enough to get some storm count to finish of opponents

I found this list from your Youtube video. Great work! I love the Budget Substitution at the end of the video. You do a really nice job with your channel! Keep going

VampiricJace I'm excited to see what you come up with!

Like I said, I think the real power from mono blue in the upcoming set with be the ridiculous late game threats that Cavalier of Gales , Vantress Gargoyle , and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling provide. I like the inclusion of Leyline of Anticipation as a free way to play at instant speed and devotion, which would end up being awesome against any flash/control deck.

Another option I didn't mention that I might see working out well is a big-mana strategy, using Agent of Treachery or Mass Manipulation . Not sure if that deck runs Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and chooses to go Simic ramp style instead, but blue devotion with Nyx Lotus paired with Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner and Corridor Monitor could be nasty.

I like the build, however I have a few comments regarding the overall play pattern of the deck.

So to summarize, I would make sure to include the following:

I would consider adding the following:

Hey, Emry, Lurker of the Loch combos with Corridor Monitor and Witch's Oven . Monitor can untap Emry or Oven, Oven can sac Monitor and Emry lets you cast Monitor from your graveyard. This combo lets you keep casting Monitor from your graveyard getting it's untap trigger when it ETB. Food tokens are artifacts and each time you sac Monitor with Oven you create two artifacts because Monitor has 4 toughness.

Sai, Master Thopterist is a powerful card with artifacts especially with the Emry/Monitor/Oven combo which can each turn make a lot of 1/1 Thopters since you cast Monitor from your graveyard with Emry. Sai is also another way to sac Monitor to draw. Aetherflux Reservoir can be a win condition with the Emry/Monitor/Oven combo because you're casing Monitor from your graveyard with Emry.
