Damia, Sage of Stone Discussion
2 days ago
Addendum to Madcookie's PS and clarification on both first answers:
Damia, Sage of Stone 's triggered ability contains an "intervening if" clause. This means the ability will have to check twice for each instance of the ability.
First, at the beginning of your upkeep, the ability checks if you have fewer than seven cards in your hand. If you meet that condition, it will trigger and go on the stack. This applies to both the original and the Spark Double copy.
Then, when each copy of the ability goes to resolve, it will check again. If you still have fewer than seven cards in hand, you will draw equal to the difference. This means the first copy of the trigger to resolve will fill your hand up to seven. Then, when the second copy resolves, if you haven't somehow cleared some cards out of your hand, you will draw nothing. You do get priority between the two triggers, however, so you can cast instants, activate abilities that discard, etc.
Compare to cards like Felidar Sovereign which also has an intervening-if. In this case, you need to have 40+ life both at the start of your upkeep (to trigger the ability at all) and when it resolves (in order for the victory condition to actually happen).

I like the deck! I have a Damia, Sage of Stone combo deck in these colors but love it too much to take apart, so I've been looking for decklists with less overlap between the two and found yours! Cracked only two packs of M20 and got THE commander I wanted to build from the set.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that Oblivion Sower is actually a cast trigger, so the only card I see that really synergizes with it is Temur Sabertooth . My suggestion would be just to add a Conjurer's Closet to just blink your mana ramping creatures for extra lands instead of the Oblivion Sower :) Also, Massacre Wurm would also work wonders to add an extra board wipe on a stick that doesn't cause collateral damage and will kill most creatures with double triggers.

If you're wanting to play draw-go, then you want a Commander that either generates value in tandem with other cards easily (Brago with Mulldrifter, Wall of Omens, etc.), or directly produces card advantage ( Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , Damia, Sage of Stone , etc.). You need entirely too many cards to control a board without being able to generate repeatable value. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter can lend toward a nice tempo style deck, Tymna the Weaver , simply put, is one of the best Commanders ever.
I would recommend something like Kraum, Ludevic's Opus partnered with Tymna the Weaver . You don't have to do flashy combo finishers- they should draw you enough cards and are in enough colors that you can run Blasphemous Act , Toxic Deluge , Wrath of God , and Cyclonic Rift at the same time, all while keeping your hand flush with permission.

So I rather like but haven't had a deck in those colors for a bit... And want to remedy that. I'm a bit stuck between the following ideas, compelling arguments for one over the others would be appreciated.
Damia, Sage of Stone - I've always liked her and had a good stuff build of her that was just silly. If I build her again it would likely be as a land deck of sorts.
The Mimeoplasm - I've also already built this guy before as a mill deck. It was maybe a little too strong for my table at the time but they've all gotten better since so maybe I won't feel as bad for tearing their decks to pieces and exiling select cards with Mimeo's ETB?
Muldrotha, the Gravetide - nope you guessed wrong, I have not built her yet. She does, however, embody my favorite style of play. The inevitable tide of 'deal with me now' that comes from being able to bring back whatever you want turn after turn. Though I see her get destroyed by grave exile and is perhaps too reliant on her being in play?
Yarok, the Desecrated - new kid on the block and a lot of room to experiment. I think landfall would end up being a big part of the deck but you never know.

If you want to build a sultai lands matter deck, I would suggest Damia, Sage of Stone instead of muldrotha, damia works better with the archetype and will ensure you don't run out of gas by constantly refilling your hand. Muldrotha is better for a more general graveyard strategy.

This deck looks really similar to my Sidisi list before it went more casual with tribal zombies. I am quickly realizing that in my new group I need to step up my game. War of the Spark's Jace, Wielder of Mysteries adds an alternative to Laboratory Maniac . Taking out the tribe I am thinking of going Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Damia, Sage of Stone for reanimation targets to get tax value and dredge out the library quickly. I like infinite combos but my group manages to play focused decks without them. Anyways, this is a great list and I can't wait to see updates.

Here is my take on Marchesa, the black rose: Queen of Hearts/Grixis midrange with Marchesa
I would like to hear oppinions on possible additions and replacrments.
So far all I've heard were "change the concept" and "spend more money", both of which are not really sound advices. Of course, I am ready to upgrade, but within reason.
This is midrange deck, so I try to avoid counterspells (though they clutched me out against aristocrats a few times) and focus on creatures that will come back once killed (but not sacrificed). Granted, I have thigs like Bitterblossom and Dreadhorde Invasion , and tokens do not come back, however, I find it to be a nice way to populate the board.
My primary win condition is beating opponents to death, secondary - Nicol Bolas ultimate, tertiary - Karn's land destruction. Optionally, I might sideboard Grafted Exoskeleton for him to fetch, but I dont think our meta would allow that.
Speaking of which, here is s list of common decks I am facing in our hobby shop:
- Judith, the Scourge Diva aristocrats
- Teysa Karlov aristocrats
- Vial Smasher the Fierce midrange
- Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs group slug/control
- Damia, Sage of Stone goodstuff/zoo
- Atraxa, Praetors' Voice superfriends
- The Scorpion God mill
I am not planning to make a jack-of-all-trades deck (certain lockpick items are sideboarded for wishes, karn and masterminds acquisition), but something to go toe-to-toe with them.
