Deal Broker Discussion

Azeworai on Alesha 2.0

Ah, a beloved commander of most. I myself toiled with a list for quite some time, so I have some recommendations, as well as menial ones.

For the ones unrelated to the deck, you have a typo of "probably" in the deck description, as "probaly." I merely point this out. My other note on formatting is that you may add a space to category titles. A athwart to "SacOutlet," try "Sac_Outlet." You also have two Karmic Guides, and Magus of the Wheels. And Ravenous Chupacabra. And Yawgmoth, Thran Physician... How did you do that?

As for the decklist, there are some cards in profuse I would at least try.

Protector of the Crown allows for many politics and defense, warding off much attacking due to the high toughness. Paired with cards such as Darksteel Plate, it can be difficult for some decks to interact with.

For looting/rummaging, Anje Falkenrath, Deal Broker, and Smuggler's Copter are all fantastic. True delectation to meticulously sculpt a perfect hand.

False Prophet is awesome. It comes back, with your profusion of sacrifice outlets is easily controllable, and leaves your board-state in the graveyard to inevitably return.

I don't much enjoy spells such as Thrill of Possibility or Cathartic Reunion, for they require cards in hand to do anything. If you don't have any, they are a horrible top-deck. I'd recommend Ransack the Lab in their lieu.

Selfless Spirit. I shall say no more.

Having additional reanimation outside of your commander is a cruciality above most. When Alesha starts costing, five, even seven mana, it's difficult for this deck to get back on its feet. Dread Return and Unburial Rites are great, even if they are to be milled over. Animate Dead is just powerful, Restoration Specialist pulls her weight, and Phyrexian Reclamation often keeps the deck going by itself. Lastly, Sun Titan is ridiculous. It recurs what is a necessity, does so immediately, can be cheated out with a reanimation spell. It is the best backup commander one could ask for. Best off, it does go infinite with Gift of Immortality and effects such as Goblin Bombardment. Bye-bye table.

Now, gaining life is important, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel is splendid.

With rummaging effects, self-mill becomes easy with Dredge cards. Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are both lovely. One self-mill effect I've enjoyed is Shard of Broken Glass. A 4/2 first strike is difficult to block prosperously.

Categories and cards to consider ablating:

You have seven sacrifice outlets, most of which are easily brought back, but they don't stack well, whereat multiple in one given game are typically useless. Of these, Blood Bairn seems the most lacking. If you aren't to fain to cut one, you should know that Bloodthrone Vampire exists.

Black Market is a VERY slow card. It's five mana, doesn't do anything immediately, and requires additional stuff to happen to make it function. I don't enjoy it too much, but your choice.

Ravenous Bloodseeker has you discard a card without replacing it. Games of commander require cards in hand to proceed, and, as such, I don't believe this to be very powerful.

You have a lot of removal. A Lot. Whilst they are all great, I have a gripe with but one. Utter End is four mana to kill one thing. Sure it's an instant and sure it's exile, but it's a lot of mana. If you want to keep all of the removal, I'd at least try other options. Despark is fine, Chaos Warp hits all permanents with a cheaper cast, and Generous Gift is arguably more prominent than Vindicate.

If you would pardon the long comment, that is all of my input. Have a lovely day and happy reanimating!

StopShot on cEDH in C19

I'm running a serious Mardu infinite-combo deck. I'm deciding not to run Dockside Extortionist with Cloudstone Curio and Reckless Fireweaver as a win condition. My reasoning is that I sometimes end up in 1-vs-1 games whether by lack of opponents or by swingy decks whittling it down to just me and another player. In this scenario the probability that my only opponent will have 4 or more artifacts and/or enchantments out just seems too inconsistent in order to pull this combo off reliably. I'm also running 5 other infinite combos, so I don't feel like I need another and my least favorite of the 5 still feels like a better option compared to this one.

I'm going to try out Pendant of Prosperity however. is absolutely horrible when it comes to getting effective card draw, but it does have access to good tutor spells. I'm going to run Pendant of Prosperity with Brand to make an effective card draw engine. Draw is important since I'm running a low tier combo deck. My combos aren't as fast as other combo decks, so I need to play a more reactive than proactive game which calls for sacrificing speed for inevitability. I'd still like to hear other people's opinions on this specific card synergy as I was on the fence for the longest time before deciding to give it a shot. Worst case scenario I give the Pendant to the player who is under-performing, or I cycle Brand if it becomes a dead card in hand.

Anje Falkenrath doesn't seem as impressive when in the 99 so long as Deal Broker exists, and I don't even run the Broker. I think Anje should have costed less mana to be worth considering for card filtering.

So far no other spoiled cards have tickled my fancy.

There are some cards that are strictly better than the ones you are already running.

Run Spark Harvest over Bone Splinters

Run Costly Plunder over Altar's Reap

Run Deal Broker over Rummaging Goblin

Run Goblin Cratermaker over Reckless Reveler

Run Commander's Sphere over Rakdos Cluestone

QuietMyth on Primer: Kozilek Great Distortion of the Boardstate

Quick shave of cards that weren't pulling their weight today. Geode Golem isn't necessary when I can have more ramp to contribute to other big spells too.

Dreamstone Hedron I believe has been pushed out in much the same way Darksteel Forge has, the aging of commander has made it possible for this deck to interact more, so I want to add more of that.

Whispersilk Cloak isnt as high impact as either boots, so better stick to those 2 copies of hexproof abilities.

Going to try out Sorcerous Spyglass based on the fact that it sees a -TON- of play in competitive commander, especially mono blue.

Deal Broker is a good boi

Koth of the Hammer could easily be another threat or a more efficient ramp card. Might I suggest Thran Dynamo ?

I'd replace your Mindless Automaton with Deal Broker . I know, the Conspiracy text might throw you off, but it is indeed another looter for the deck at only 3 mana!

You're also missing key pieces of removal - Duplicant , Chaos Warp , Meteor Golem , and Spine of Ish Sah . These four cards are your essential removal cards in Mono-Red! I would take out Seething Song , Warstorm Surge , Greater Gargadon , and Lightning Bolt for removal. Duplicant and Meteor Golem in particular work well with Feldon because you can create token copies of them!

Newest project, going for a GB lands-ish strategy with artifacts to support it, using the Loam engine to hold everything together. I know I’m missing The Gitrog Monster , I’m just not sure what to cut for it. Also Deal Broker is just my budget placeholder for Bazaar of Baghdad until I can track one down.

Chain of Vapor seems dangerous. You don't want people bouncing Scepter, a multi-countered As Foretold , B2B, or Kefnet. Maybe Blink of an Eye is another good bounce spell instead?

In my experience, Primal Amulet  Flip always feels a little to slow and expensive.

I see High Tide and Dramatic Scepter combo but not much to do with a ton of/infinite mana. Blue Sun's Zenith and Capsize seem like good outlets. BSZ lets you draw your and kill everyone with infinite mana.

Seeker of Insight could be Deal Broker or Cephalid Looter . Neither of them have limitations on when it can be used.

Karn, the Great Creator feels a bit out of place.

Wow thanks for the suggestions I'll start looking into what cuts I can make, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient is clearly a must for this deck. I've looked into Deal Broker and the gatherer list is as legal for edh so that's why I left it there.
