Deceiver Exarch Discussion

Oloro_Magic on Tooth and nail

2 days ago

I like the idea of using Tooth and Nail to cheat big things in which likely end the game, but in addition to those I think, as you have in your maybeboard, it would be more interesting if you also included Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Deceiver Exarch at least as one-ofs as an instant way to win.

Additionally, I would run a few more utility lands such as Sanctum of Ugin and most importantly Field of Ruin simply cutting a couple Forests. 4 All Is Dust also seems very high, this deck does considerably less than other tron lists seeing how there is no Karn but I still believe 3 would be better (perhaps making room for the Kiki combo).

The sideboard also appears to need serious work in my opinion and I would be more than happy to help with it if you can provide me with what your meta looks like, or alternatively an indication of whether you want a general sideboard that is good fro starting out that simply targets some commonly played decks and strategies.

I'm not arguing tiers, wherever it ends up is fine with me. I had a turn 4 win last weekend and it was hilarious but that's beside the point.

I just want to see an updated list from the most competitive deck that's out there. One of my issues with this current one is that it doesn't have a 4 mana untap creature. You've got Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch at 3 CMC, Zealous Conscripts at 5 CMC, and Great Oak Guardian at 6 CMC. That means you don't have a 4CMC target when you sac and tutor with Birthing Pod. Instead of the two 3 CMC cards, I added a Breaching Hippocamp so i can hit that 4 CMC target if I have to sac a 3 cmc creature to combo off.

Bloom Tender, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Somberwald Sage, and Rishkar, Peema Renegade are all great mana dorks here and consider extra land drop cards like Oracle of Mul Daya. Also, if you can afford it... Earthcraft is bonkers.

A few bigger draw options never hurt, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, Sylvan Library, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Glimpse of Nature are the best of what you're missing.

I prefer bodies over most counterspells and you want cards to be good outside of comboing. I'd probably drop both Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch as both are just bad outside of combining. I'd also thin out your non-creature spells and probably drop all 4 'blast' spells like hydroblast for example. Consider Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for protecting your combo.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not dedicated combo but it's still very competitive. Feedback, upvotes, and/or ideas are appreciated. Animar, Angry Hemorrhoid

Hi, I need some help to improve this deck a bit. I've been hearing some advice regarding the exclusion of some cards and the inclusion of more artifacts.

So far, I think I need more mana rocks and draw, but I don't want to sacrifice my beaters for it.

I also want to know if the inclusion of Precognition Field, Howling Golem and Voltaic Servant would be good.

What a about using a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker with cards like Pestermite and/or Deceiver Exarch?

Ok, well take a look at my Kess Splinter Twin deck. I've been playing dedicated Splinter Twin combo with Sedris, the Traitor King for years. Basically myself and some other user came up with the same concept a few years back and that guy helped popularize the deck. Now Kess has drastically improved the deck.

This deck can be fast to combo out, but it's real strength lies in being able to push for the win through many different paths. You can end-step flash in Deceiver Exarch and combo out on your turn, you can reanimate your combo pieces, you can out value people with Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, or you can strip people's hands with a Wheel of Fortune effect with Notion Thief. In the end, this deck has to be respected.

Contrast that deck with my Mimeoplasm deck. This creation was limited by what I had on me while the other two have been in progress for years. The deck has an awful land base just because I had no really good picks left. The deck has a decent ramp package, efficient mill that doubles as draw, some amount of interaction, and some fatties as payoffs. It's not all that sophisticated but it has some nuance to it. The primary gameplan is to just cast ridiculously high-value cards until you're the last one standing. With Demonic Tutor, you could also combo with Seasons Past and Time Warp.

Have you considered dropping Horde as your Commander and black and instead running Thrasios, Triton Hero and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder? Youre not running anything black that I can tell so it would help out your mana base a little bit. Both are good in different situations (one if youve got free mana and the other if youre trying to get ahead in combat) and Bruse-y can be used to pod into Kiki Jiki. If you find a spot for Deceiver Exarch Thrasios can do the same for that as well

If you want some more infinite combos, Pestermite, Deceiver Exarch, and Bounding Krasis make unlimited creatures with Kiki, and Eternal Witness or Archaeomancer and either Deadeye Navigator or Progenitor Mimic make infinite turns with Time Warp or Walk the Aeons.
