Curse of Verbosity Discussion

YouGotFranked on Karona Multicolor Pillowfort

6 days ago

Glad to see more Karona around. She's such a fun commander to play. If i may allow myself a few suggestions:

Rafiq of the Many Karona + any one of the vows + Rafiq lets you OHKO an opponent with commander damage.

There's also a few very interesting curses you could play with. Curses synergize well with propaganda effect. Propaganda punish opponents who attacks you, Curses rewards them for attacking someone else. If i were you, i'd take a look at them and especially those that give you the same benefits than your opponents when they triggers them, such as Curse of Verbosity, Curse of Opulence, Curse of Disturbance and Curse of Vitality.

There's obviously other curses that could be helpful, but these ones fit very well in your pillowfort gameplan.

Good luck in turning your opponents against each others :)

Okay. This is gonna be a brief one because I'm not really great at control but something I do specialize in is voltron.

Drogskol Reaver doesn't do enough. You have like 3 lifelinking cards in the entire deck. Swift Silence is also lack-luster.

Try some Stubborn Denial or Disdainful Stroke. Good, cheap conterspells. Settle the Wreckage is a legend against aggro. The vows (like Vow of Duty) are a really good choice for dealing with threats. Maybe you could do with a few of the curses (like Curse of Verbosity) to displace attackers.

What about Propaganda as a "you can't attack me"?

Or maybe some extra incentives by way of Curses? Curse of Bounty is nice, and Curse of Verbosity is too. I'd stay away from Curse of Inertia, though; the other players too often turned to me with the ability.

Ah, but I remember sneaking over a Curse of Echoes on a control player; locked him out on casting counter spells! That's more of a chaos card; I was just reliving old memories.

It's difficult to overstate how happy this makes me. Now. Kindred Discovery could be sweet, though I'm sure you've already considered it. You might also benefit from some curses? Curse of Verbosity is some extra draw, Curse of Bounty can be really good, and Curse of Predation can make some small bears quite scary. Thought Vessel and Spellbook are nice. Horn of Greed is super underrated, as well.

The card you might like most of all, however:

Call to the Kindred. More bears every turn? Yes please!

Shigure77 on Niv Mizzet, the Firemind EDH

Why is Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in this? I mean he's a strong card but I don't see the synergy. Also besides Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and The Locust God, I'm not seeing much of a win-con in case you cant get those cards. I think that you might want to invest in a strong combo. Here are some cards that I think would do you good: Curse of Verbosity, Ophidian Eye Rhystic Study (Personally I think that this is a must), Talrand, Sky Summoner, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius (him comboing with himslef I think can be nasty) Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Staff of Nin. I think that as far spells go you have them down but you are definitely missing some good creature synergy.

Cyclonic Rift is a better/different version of River's Rebuke

Asceticism is fantastic protection

Wild Defiance will give you an extra pump to your creatures

Angelic Destiny, Eldrazi Conscription, Rancor are all great buffs

Curse of Bounty and Curse of Verbosity are good if you are doing multiplayer games. It puts a target on someone else, and gives you a bonus if you or someone else attacks them.

Bident of Thassa and Bow of Nylea are both great permanent buffs for your creatures.

Praetor's Counsel is a great recovery card

Primal Command is just good in any situation. It's recovery, it's life gain, it's removal, and it's a tutor. You get to do two and it's never a dead card.

Primordial Hydra is a fast clock, cast it big and protect it and it will kill anyone.

Thassa, God of the Sea and Nylea, God of the Hunt are both great targets for your voltron plan. Thassa gives evasion, Nylea gives trample. plus as a creature they are great beaters.

Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra could be fun, get all 3 and you get a creature with recursion.

Just some ideas.

I like the theme a lot - cool & unusual commander, as well.

Have you ever tested with Traveler's Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, or Trailblazer's Boots to get your voltron critter through?

I wonder if Rhystic Study might also complement Remora here. Maybe Crush of Tentacles and Cyclonic Rift as back-up conditional wipes. Bribery and Vedalken Shackles also seem strong here.

You might also play a Paradox Engine and more rocks to get more value off of your Isochron Scepter.

Aeon Chronicler might be fun, as well as Baral, Chief of Compliance, Chasm Skulker, Thassa, God of the Sea, Curse of Verbosity, Consecrated Sphinx, Customs Depot, Jace's Erasure, and Zephyr Scribe.

Happy playing!

Cloudchaser.Kestrel on Courting attack, Isperia Supreme Judge

When I first made her I put in Curse of the Forsaken and didn't find it did enough. I really like Curse of Verbosity as a double up on Isperia's ability though. What did you cut for it?
