Dictate of Kruphix Discussion

ToeJam on The Locust God - Izzet Insects

1 week ago

OUT -- Dictate of Kruphix - While this is a good card, it wasn't an essential part of my draw engine and would often get stuck in my hand especially in late game where I don't want my opponents drawing as well.

IN -- Throne of the God-Pharaoh - This looks amazing in my setup. I often attack with many insects and this artifact can really make the difference when trying to get in that final damage. Potential to wipe out the whole table in certain situations.

RedMulligan on Starting in Commander?

So here's a list of the cards that I got for the deck:

However, there's plenty of things I know I need, and some things I might consider (thanks to edhrec.com).Holy crap, that's a lot of cards. What I want to do right now is have Kess play the support role while I tutor up Nekusar to play. As soon as I can start nabbing the wheels for Nekusar's pain, Kess's ability will allow me to cast them back for more wheel-y fun times (for me, at least). That way, people won't realize that this is actually a Nekusar deck: he's hiding, ready to strike! But my biggest problem is discerning which of these 150+ cards I need to whittle down to about 65, and also figure out how many lands I need to play. I've got a little money to spend, and this list is about as far as I'll go cost-wise.

I love this commander! I update my The Locust God list over at Revenge of the Nibblers.

Neurok Stealthsuit might be a good addition to test, too, since you can equip at instant speed for UU. It seems like you might also want to test with a better mana balance by swapping out some R sources for U ones. I would try swapping out Highland Lake, Izzet Guildgate, Swiftwater Cliffs, Temple of the False God, Vivid Crag, and Vivid Creek for some number of Island and maybe a Cascade Bluffs.

Perhaps also shed the cluestone and keyrune for a signet and a flex spot.

Mana Echoes is bonkers in this deck if you can get one.

It seems like your plan is to go wide with tokens or burn out opponents with Purphoros and Impact Tremors and a combo like Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp. Is that correct?

I play a few more burn/draw spells for flexibility - sometimes it's fun to use Kindred Discovery (with Laboratory Maniac as a back-up) instead of the altar and clamp; sometimes it's fun to use the altar and clamp to fuel an Altar of the Brood or a giant Blue Sun's Zenith, Comet Storm, or Firemind's Insight; sometimes it's fun to go wide with Shared Animosity super early in the game.

I might test with some more win cons and hard counter magic here if your playgroup is competitive and cool with combos. I would add more group hug pieces if your playgroup is more casual or hates on combos. I'm thinking of cards like Anvil of Bogardan, Dictate of Kruphix, Howling Mine, Jace Beleren, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and/or Temple Bell.

Have fun brewing!

In a Zur deck, I always find that a good Nevermore or a Runed Halo can screw your opponent's commander, or general game if their deck is, like yours, based on their commander!

Also, Winds of Rath can become the end of many foes, but not your sweet sweet Zur. Need more protection on him? Diplomatic Immunity is for you! You plan to win with only zur attacking? Cathedral of War !

Now, here's what I think you should cut out ; Curse of the Bloody Tome, you don't play in graveyard and you have no milling win-con, so it's pretty meh. Since you just tuor anything anyway, I don't think you need a Dictate of Kruphix which can just help your opponent get back up. Playing both both Curse of Inertia and Ghostly Touch while you have a Aqueous Form is a waste of card slot, In my huble opinion.

Well, thats all, have a nice day and good luck mate!

You know what's a really nice way to lose friends? Equipping a Grafted Exoskeleton onto or enchanting Nekusar with Phyresis. Wound Reflection is also really nice.

More wheels are always nice. Windfall, Time Reversal, Winds of Change, Wheel and Deal, Magus of the Wheel, Teferi's Puzzle Box, etc.

More forced draw/damage you can run are Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Fevered Visions, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Well of Ideas, Otherworld Atlas, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Iron Maiden, etc.

Since you're running Price of Knowledge, you also can consider cards like Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and Devastation Tide for the purposes of filling up your opponents' hands for maximum damage.

I personally do not see how Notion Thief synergizes at all with Nekusar, he may just be control, or I may just be completely stupid.

Have you thought about some more consistent card drawing options, like Dictate of Kruphix, Kami of the Crescent Moon, or even a Howling Mine? Yes, they help other players, but, they will help you more, and make you considerably more tokens, I think.

Instead of some of your Bolt spells, which probably won't do much to a lot of creatures in Commander, maybe run some artifacts like Memory Jar and Teferi's Puzzle Box. They will add up the tokens fast. Then, with all those tokens, something like Goblin Bombardment could be a good way to finish off multiple opponents. Spells like Stroke of Genius would also be solid for you.
