Crib Swap Discussion

  1. Spreading Seas is really good in UWx control decks, in the current meta I'd suggest 2 MB and 1-2 SB.

  2. As a hilarious option, what do you think of Crib Swap ? Ups your dragon count by 1 or 2 more for your Silumgar's Scorn and is superior to Path to Exile if a Chalice is in play for 1.

thanks everyone for all the suggestions and +1s I greatly appreciate it.

Primal Vigor is a little to mana costly, I find by turn 5 my opponent is already dead and without any mana ramp I wouldn't be playing it until turn 5 which would be too late to be helpful. Besides Cloudshift and Essence Flux are what really shine at duplicating my tokens.

I definitely like the Street Wraith idea, I was thinking of taking out Hunted Horror since 2 tokens that don't die immediately thanks to Illness in the Ranks or have their first attack negated thanks to the life gain from a few cards wasn't really working out as well as I hoped. I was going to throw in Hunted Troll but I don't really want to add fourth color and the free card draw from Street Wraith would be extremely helpful.

I was originally thinking of adding Authority of the Consuls but I found I never needed to attack with anything other than my Hunted Phantasm which is unblockable anyway. Definitely a good sideboard option for fast agro decks, gives me extra life gain and slows them down a bit. Also I never really thought of how well it goes with Mercy Killing I just had it stuck in my head that all the tokens I give them come into play on my turn anyway but that's not the case with Mercy Killing.

Beast Within is only in the sideboard because I was thinking about adding green I just forgot to remove it. I don't think I would need Crib Swap since I already have Mercy Killing which does basically the same thing but gives them more tokens to be drained by. I love the idea of Genesis Chamber, that will be a great replacement for the Beast Withins in the sideboard for fighting creature heavy decks. Against anything else it is kind of a dead card since it doesn't duplicate the tokens I give them.

Maybe drop Beast Within for Crib Swap. You may also want to run a few Genesis Chambers.

Cool deck +1.

I can see you're on a very limited budget so my suggestions will with very few exceptions be $1 or less. Firstly Sram, Senior Edificer belongs in this deck as draw and double synergy. Once you add him you'll want some mana rocks to ramp you as R/W cannot ramp on their own. Fellwar Stone, Burnished Hart, Inspiring Statuary, etc will really aid you. And you need some answers to problems. For single target some very nice snd cheap ones: Fate Forgotten(Amonkhet has a better one with cycling on it for ssme cost but forget the name. I'd run both), Crib Swap, Vandalblast, Return to Dust, Darksteel Mutation, Day of Judgment + Blasphemous Act + Fumigate(these 3 are more but you need some board wipes in EDH), etc. Look for single target, versatile removal instants that can handle issues you encounter. Lastly some cards that might aid you bringing the house down: Basandra, Battle Seraph, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Indomitable Archangel, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds. That targets a lot for your deck and I hope at least some of it helps you out. If you have any questions or whatnot then feel free to ask! And good luck with the dwarves to victory!

Snacrifice on Sram, Senior Edificer EDH Budget

Ghost Quarter would save you some money if you replaced Strip Mine with it.

Dusk / Dawn is a cheaper Retribution of the Meek.

Hero's Blade is fantastic, since it'll re-equip when Sram inevitably gets removed by something.

Crib Swap and Afterlife cost more in mana than Swords to Plowshares, but they shave money off your budget and are just as viable in EDH.

Trailblazer's Boots are a better cheap equip than say Trusty Machete because even if it costs one more to drop, it'll consistently read as 'unblockable'. Prowler's Helm is a similar budget option but there are walls that get dropped more often:P.

Cultivator's Caravan is just wasteful budget when you can use Darksteel Ingot for an indestructible version, or Manalith for a way cheaper option(or, if you don't care about making white mana, Pristine Talisman will gain you life. Tooth of Ramos also gives you a pocket two mana)

Oreskos Explorer is Knight of the White Orchid except cheaper and better in multiplayer.

Taj-Nar Swordsmith gives you another tutor. Planar Cleansing is a cheap mass-removal that could replace WOG(though it costs some more mana) or just give you another wipe.

Always good to see economical decks :D

I think that this can be a devastating SP and MP deck.

Greatbow Doyen and Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile are all-stars. Throw Trophy Hunter in there and you've got intense synergy. Scattershot Archer deals with flyers. Crossbow Infantry is great, if you pair him with Armadillo Cloak, Felidar Umbra, or Battle Mastery.

However, if you splash black, things get mean. You've got Phyresis, Sultai Runemark, and Aspect of Gorgon.

Archers synergize with any creature that is massive, but creates tokens for opponents, like Hunted Troll.

With some ramp, like Caravan Vigil and Rampant Growth, you can accelerate.

You'll need protection, so Crib Swap is an easy check, because you can easily deal with the 1/1. Same with Afterlife or Beast Within. Selesnya Charm is also good because of the options it provides. If you splash black, there's many more options available.

Pulse of Murasa is also good, but I wouldn't put too many in.
