Dack Fayden Discussion

triproberts12 on niv-mizzet first EDH deck

2 days ago

My first thought was that you clearly know how to build a deck, and my second was that some of the choices are a bit subpar, which is to be expected when filling 99-slots, rather than the 10ish cards you'd select for a 60-card deck. I would lose low-impact cards like Spellbook, The Royal Scions, and Sentinel Tower. Thought Vessel , Dack Fayden , and a 36th land are the first 3 swaps I would make. If you're building on a budget versus friends who have the budget for better manabases, take advantage of that with Blood Moon , Ruination , and Back to Basics . If not, then I would use Niv-Mizzet, Parun as the commander and shore up the manabase. Also, no Ophidian Eye and Curiosity ? Finally, take a look at the EDHREC page for Niv. It's really the best tool for building EDH decks. I'd also check out Saffron Olive's 3 Biggest Commmander Deck Building Mistakes.

Do you think that Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer could be replaced with Dack Fayden it still in the 3-CMC planeswalker slot? I feel that Dack seems a little better in this style of deck because it filters the cards in your hand as well as fuels Gurmag Angler , Tasigur, the Golden Fang , Tombstalker , Dig Through Time .

Most certainly a solid deck. I would cut Zendikar's Roil as you don't seem to be too heavy on landfall, and take out Bloom Hulk . Bloom Hulk is just bad with the deck you're playing and there are many better cards to replace that, such as Chandra, Flamecaller She cycles the dirt from your hand and can pump out meaty beaters turnly and is a great all around planeswalker. For no good reason, I would run a copy of Dack Fayden because he's Dack Fayden .

I feel like Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is something this deck could make great use of. His second +1 ability seems super relevant. Every one of Dack Fayden 's abilities is relevant in any game of commander. Every one of Kaya, Orzhov Usurper 's abilities is relevant in any game of commander. Narset, Parter of Veils is a literal nightmare. Nahiri, the Harbinger is surprisingly flexible removal (and looting). Sarkhan Unbroken is just a really good, relevant card whose +1 and -2 are just super nice to have at your disposal. Same goes for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , but he has a -3, not a -2.

There are a lot of instances where Shalai, Voice of Plenty could be useful, Oath of Kaya , while perhaps more oriented toward formats where life starts at 20, is still a solid card, and life gain is very rarely irrelevant.

Wilderness Reclamation is bat-shit crazy with Sisay. Related- your ramp is lacking in a serious way. Yeah, I get that you have a bunch of creature that ramp you but the problem with that is 1- half of them only produce one color of mana, and 2- more importantly, every single color has access to creature removal. Maybe your meta runs a ton of artifact hate and 0% board wipe, that's the only reason I can think of that you wouldn't just use signets and Rampant Growth effects.

Dack Fayden let's you, but you need his ultimate and spells that target. Spells such as Rolling Thunder work great as you can hit each creature you want for just 1 damage.

SideBae I really appreciate your advice. I’m thinking: Tendrils of Agony comes out for Dack Fayden , Grapeshot comes out for Arcane Signet , and maybe Recall for Paradoxical Outcome ??? Para Outcome I completely overlooked and agree with you, Dack is fantastic and also works with Notion Thief , and while I DO agree with Spell Snare, I personally want to call it good on my counterspell count. I recently made the change: Time Spiral for Mind Over Matter , honestly, that change has won me MANY games. Again, thanks for the advice, I’ll be looking at these cards and testing with them.

So I'm not sure, but I don't think Tendrils of Agony is very good in EDH. In general, you need a storm count of around 40+ to kill everyone with it (assuming they've taken significant damage beforehand), so I think your Aetherflux Reservoir is probably just a better storm win condition. Also, if you cut Tendrils of Agony for a cheaper card, it won't ding you so hard off Ad Nauseam . I have a similar problem with Grapeshot .

I've never been a fan of Helm of Awakening . Your experience with it may (obviously) differ from mine, but I tend to find it a dead-ish card in my hand. Running it out and passing is obviously problematic (since the effect is symmetrical), so generally you only want to run it if you can slam it and win on the same turn. With that in mind, you may just be better off running a mana rock (something like Arcane Signet ), since you can land that early-game and benefit until the end, rather than just at the end.

If you're planning to win off of Doomsday , I think you should keep Gush in the list. Yes, it is 5 damage of Ad Nauseam , but being able to dig two-deep and potentially snag a land-drop for free after a Doomsday is REALLY powerful.

In my Kess list, I run Dack Fayden . I really like him, and you should at least consider running him. The loot effect is significant, but being able to steal a Sol Ring or Mana Crypt from an opponent is even better.

You have a good number of mana-positive rocks... have you considered running Paradoxical Outcome ? It seems like kinda a funky choice, but I run it in my Kess storm list and I've had pretty good results with it. Obviously it'll be better once you get a Mox Diamond , but even with just the Chrome Mox , Mana Vault and friends it'll be pretty good.

My last suggestion is that you consider running Spell Snare . A lot of the hate that turns off decks like this is two mana (see Collector Ouphe , Gaddock Teeg , Rest in Peace , Stony Silence , Null Rod , Sphere of Resistance , Thorn of Amethyst , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Chains of Mephistopheles ), as are mana counterspells and even a few always-plays like Cyclonic Rift . I think Spell Snare is a highly underrated card, provided you're playing at a competitive table, so... yeah. I think you should consider it.
