Dack Fayden Discussion

dongerlord on Sevinne, the Chronoclasm Acid Flashback

It seems like you're running burn as your wincon.

Here are some cards that might help.

Static burn: Harsh Mentor, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ankh of Mishra, Manabarbs

Finishers: Acidic Soil, Price of Progress. Molten Disaster is a decent finisher you can consider with split-second and also acts as a board clear (you might try replacing Devil's Play with this)

Since these are symmetrical burn, you could also run Glacial Chasm and stall it out. This is also the most important land card to run with these mono red sorcery finishers. Your Pariah is also a god level card with this setup. You might also consider Heartless Hidetsugu as a combo with these 2 cards.

For more drastic changes, you can fix around your landbase to cut a lot of nonbasics and add basics with a load of fetchlands, such as Fabled Passage, Prismatic Vista, , Ash Barrens, Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, Myriad Landscape, Warped Landscape, some Panorama fetches, and keeping Flooded Strand + Scalding Tarn + Arid Mesa. I have this landbase in another of my burn decks and its fully sufficient for tri-colour commanders. In white, you get access to Land Tax as well so it helps further fix your mana - although in my experience with this landbase I would say its not even necessary.

With a basic land landbase, it opens you up to more burn, such as Price of Progress, Burning Earth. It also opens you up to hard stax cards if you have a vendetta against someone: Magus of the Moon, Blood Moon, Back to Basics.


An alternative package you can consider with your wheels is Narset, Parter of Veils and Alms Collector to discard their entire hand. You already have Smothering Tithe as well. Psychic Possession is also insane with wheels as it lets you draw 14 off a single wheel.

I would also just add Underworld Breach because its straight up insane.

You can also try Mana Geyser for a super explosive turn by recasting it from the graveyard again.

Dack Fayden is both a ramp card and a way to dump cards into your graveyard.

Good old Blasphemous Act and Chain Reaction are 2 of the best board clears you can pair with Sevinne.

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip Baby Jace is a VERY good card with Sevinne. Helps cycle into lands/ramp early and lets you cast spells from your graveyard once it transforms into Jace, Telepath Unbound.


Some cards I see that you could also try cutting/changing are:

Land Tax - you can run ramp artifacts instead, such as Surveyor's Scope. Surveyor's Scope is an excellent card with many fetchlands as you can tap them to sac as a cost, then activate Surveyor's Scope for up to 3 basics untapped since your fetchland is no longer on the field. Or basically any other 2 mana rock will do.

Mirage Mirror and Scroll Rack - these cards are a bit clunky to use and you can do more with mana rocks instead.

I would consider Ral, Izzet Viceroy a bit too slow.

You should swap Jeskai Ascendancy for the new Whirlwind of Thought

You have a lot of single target protection - Momentary Blink, Lightning Greaves, Diplomatic Immunity. I would suggest cutting one or two because you can still tutor for it.

Narset of the Ancient Way SEEMS a bit slow (but I have't seen this card in action yet), so you could replace it with Narset, Parter of Veils

Ray of Distortion is pretty omega slow. You might want to try Aura of Silence or a simple Disenchant

Personally I'm trying to build a cEDH Sevinne burn deck haha! Thinking of also trying Thought Lash with Thassa's Oracle

Long live our Overlord Sevinne

hey, i like the list. Food for thought, why not Dack Fayden instead of The Royal Scions?

crazedspeed on Kenrith best of all worlds

2 weeks ago

Ok, so after last games, I decided to make some more changes. I want to make the deck leaner in creatures.

ADDED

Mana/ramp 1. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds 2. Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy 3. Bloom Tender 4. Exploration

Others: 1. Yisan, the Wanderer Bard untapping him every turn and activating him for less 2. Faithless Looting , Frantic Search , Windfall getting the more expensive creatures in the graveyard for reanimation with Kenrith.

REMOVED

  1. Fertilid not enough basics to make this a good option
  2. Dack Fayden dies quickly (little flying blockers), and mostly used for his first ability
  3. Knight of the Reliquary
  4. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
  5. Sakura-Tribe Elder
  6. Hurkyl's Recall

It's too expensive for cEDH, and it doesn't have any immediate effect. No ETB effects, so usually you have to wait a full turn to actually do anything with it. It's also a massive target, as nobody want their stuff stolen. Compare that to something like Dack Fayden. It's much less mana, but even besides that, it immediately impacts the game. If Dack required you to wait a full turn cycle for his effect, he would see much less play as well.

Awesome article Suns! I really liked the part about how to know when it's time to retire your deck (I too, am a lover of bullet-point lists).

Also, yes, too soon. R.I.P Dack Fayden

@Annexus:

dude you just try to win with 1-2 attacks. why should I infect my deck with Narset of the Ancient Way? I would rather play Narset, Parter of Veils, Dack Fayden, Narset Transcendent or a card which I completely overlooked Strionic Resonator.

+1 from me. Looks fun and bonkers and evil. The Counterspell suite is 100. Avg cmc 1.8

Ghostly Wings is interesting; saves a commander from wraths? Rolling Earthquake etc. Also Burning Inquiry is aggressive haha

Not into too many creatures? Consecrated Sphinx is massive with wheels. Cavalier of Flame is fiery. I really want the new Rielle, the Everwise. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is just massive but may save you from decking out.

Heartwarming Redemption I think seems worth it. Dack Fayden is solid. Idyllic Tutor maybe

Anywho I hope you'll check my deck and tell me what you think! Have fun!

@Annexus: Yes I totally agree with your thoughts about Timetwister but not with those to Wheel of Fortune. Budget options for those 2 cards are for sure / Time Spiral and Echo of Eons but you definitely need some wheels in your deck and Wheel of Fortune is the really strong, but the deck wouldn't lose much strength if you play Windfall and Echo of Eons/Time Spiral instead of Timetwister/Wheel of Fortune.

The two other Narset are cool flavourwhise but I personally thought that there were simply better alternatives:

I think the deck has only like two slots at maximum for "win more" cards.

At the moment I play Thousand-Year Storm and Aggravated Assault. TStorm cannot be cut because I won almost every game with him as soon as he touched the field. But maybe Narset Transcendent could be a replacement for Aggravated Assault. Narset is a bit more versatile but sometimes you don't hit any extraturn/combat and then narset is a lil bit worse than the Assault, because with the assault you gain another try with Narset, Enlightened Master and if you hit Time Spiral you get ANOTHER attack and with the assault you always have atleast 2 attempts per turn to hit a another turn/combat spell.

Narset, Parter of Veils is a good card but for me atleast I found a lot cards I liked more but can be a budget option JTMS. If you pla atleast 3+ wheel cards in this deck, she could be worth, but with only 2 wheels, there's lacking synergy.

JTMS is just insane and has fallen out of favor or forgiveness just like Narset, Enlightened Master, JTMS is a walkin Brainstorm and toolbox. It's a great feeling when Time Stretch is stuck in your hand and you can put it back on your deck.

Dack Fayden is also pretty good to steal your opponent's ramp pieces but I think he's the one who could maybe replaced by Winter Orb or like you mentioned Teferi, Time Raveler. I loved Teferi, but some dudes from the Narset Discord have somehow talked me out of Teferi...

Man I would really enjoy to play some 1vs1 games of different lists/cuts, to scientifically prove which list is the fastest and after that to test it in a real environment against legit decks to check which card/list is good in the current meta. (Do you have Xmage?)

I see your point on Gamble, sure this card has the opportunity to fail, but narset is just a "if you have luck you win deck" and with this cards I'm also gambling high, but yeah cards to replace gamble are: Idyllic Tutor/Merchant Scroll or like you mentioned Ponder/Preordain.

I tested Jace, Wielder of Mysteries a lot and in 99% of the time he was a dead card or not needed... when you draw your entire library you just win with Nexus of Fate/Beacon of Tomorrows but most of the time you opponents surrender before that ever happens after like your 5 extra turn... And if you really want another wincon then I would always prefer Bribery because this card is savage and in almost every cedh match somebody is playing Thassa's Oracle or another winon which you could possibly steal. Or just play the good old Approach of the Second Sun.
