Cosi's Trickster Discussion

Also Lifecrafter's Bestiary solid in creature heavy build, and Cosi's Trickster a cute addition. I also like Asceticism to prevent spot removal, Heroic Intervention for sweepers, and Chord of Calling for tutor.

@ponchossweater Great suggestion, I love Mist-Cloaked Herald. Maybe not enough to replace Cosi's Trickster though, it can trigger on fetch lands, ramp spells, etc that's so common in commander. Still a great merfolk, I might cut a higher costing spell to even out the tempo a bit.

Hadana's Climb is... OK. My bro likes it much more. This deck has like 3 cards that get counters on creatures besides the commander, and even then it's the most expensive ability on Kumena. For now at least, I'll probs stick to my Gaea's Skyfolk, what I consider it to be the best 2 drop in the deck besides the A cards. Thanks poncho!

I don't think that the deck really needs more creatures, especially since Cosi's Trickster is one of three shuffling payoffs in this deck. However, those creatures could be part of a transformational sideboard plan, in order to counter a sideboarding plan from the opponent to deal with the key spells in the deck.

Surgical Extraction is a good modern card by itself but it buffs your Cosi's Trickster too. Lord of Atlantis or other merfolk lords would be a good edition. Spreading Seas is good with Lord of Atlantis too.

Cosi's Trickster may not be the best option, as it is situational, and only works with some cards in your deck, so the +1/+1 counters won't be all that abundant. You'd be lucky to get 3 of them in a game. Scrib Nibblers is a GREAT card, but for 3 mana, considering how many 3 mana cards you already have, is not worth a spot. Deadeye Tracker would be the best option of those 3, because your opponents should have at least some cards in their graveyard for you to exile, but you'll mainly be using it as a way to exile combo pieces from the graveyard, not for the +1/+1s. I still think Dakra Mystic is more useful in this deck, but depending on how you want to play, Deadeye Tracker can be VERY good as well. Whatever you choose, I'd recommend running a full playset of it.

Ghosty Thoughtseize would be a great replacement for Duress, just trying not to break the bank TOO much haha. And I would almost rather go Shimian Specter over Hypnotic, although 3CMC is nice for sure... Maybe, maybe...

Illusificate Well, sure, I see your point. But the goal of this deck is to ruin their combo on turn 1 or 2, then proceed to strip them of options for the rest of the game. Its more of a weird take on a mill deck than a pure combo breaker. But I do like the Dakra Mystic suggestion, I think that that may have a place in here. Other creatures I'm considering are: Scrib Nibblers, Deadeye Tracker, Cosi's Trickster, etc.

Thanks a lot mostlyghost! The idea for the deck was actually based around Ghost Quarter, Path to Exile, Surgical Extraction, and Cosi's Trickster, but somehow I forgot to add Ghost Quarter. I was running a playset of Opt instead of Serum Visions because I like the instant speed value more, but I have now worked it around to be a 3/3 split. Settle the Wreckage would definitely be the center piece of the deck if the opponent shuffled his library for each creature, but I'm worried it just isn't quite effective enough. I'll have to test it out. Finally, I love Maralen of the Mornsong, but unfortunately, I really don't think modern is the right format for her especially in a not super combo oriented deck.

Thanks a lot Wel5, I appreciate it!
