RobsJourney on Evening the Odds - An actual decent coin flip deck

2 years ago

Fantastic deck, really glad to have found it! Will likely make the same list for my after-work EDH group.

Mind me asking, I noticed you updated it only moments ago, do you have a change log?

Also, do you think Goad could be added to this, just to add some more fun/silliness?

I'm thinking cards like Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Coveted Peacock, Besmirch, Dulcet Sirens, Goblin Racketeer, and Disrupt Decorum. What do you think?

And/or, what about fun theft stuff like Etali, Primal Storm, Dominus of Fealty, Stolen Strategy, and Mind's Dilation?

cheers :)

TKDbeast on The Birds (1963)

Nice deck! I like the Storm Crow include there, and I love the movie The Birds.

I was wondering why you didn't include Magus of the Moat or Archetype of Imagination. They're really great for decks built around flying.

I'd also like to recommend trying on Coveted Peacock and Messenger Jays if you're into political play, or your playgroup doesn't have a grouphug deck.

In addition, I'd highly recommend getting some card draw and counterspells in there. Blue and White has a lot of control cards in it, so take advantage of those too. I'm not saying to go full-on Stax, but a little bit of removal and whatnot is always healthy for any deck.

Thanks for posting!

Rhadamanthus on how does Goading work?

3 years ago

Unfortunately there's not enough room in Grenzo's text box to give the reminder text for the Goad ability (and reminder text is often left off of Rare and Mythic Rare cards anyway since a player won't see them as often). Let's look at another one: Coveted Peacock

Notice that the effect from Goad lasts "until your next turn". Yes, Grenzo's ability will be triggering during your combat phase, but the creatures you Goad will still have the effect applied to them after your turn ends and all through your opponents' turns. It doesn't wear off until the game comes back around to your turn again. That's how Goad is able to work properly.

Also note that Goad just says the creature has to attack someone other than you if able. If you're the only player it could legally attack, it can attack you.
