Distant Melody Discussion

Bork on The Loco Locust

Alright. I went through my deck and found some cards that MAY be helpful. Keep Watch,Distant Melody,Slate of Ancestry will double your bugs (Keep watch can give you some blockers too if need be). Sakashima the Impostor can copy our commander and give us 2 bugs per card drawn. Throne of the God-Pharaoh can help end the game. Meekstone slows everyone but us (unless coat of arms is out, but if that is the case we should be winning shortly). And board wipes like Earthquake Magmaquake Fault Line will restart everyone but us while dealing some damage. I am going to try and post my full deck list later this week but i hope i gave you some ideas for some cards.

They want to be in every pauper elves deck (x4): Birchlore Rangers, Quirion Ranger, Nettle Sentinel

They are nice: Elvish Vanguard, Elvish Visionary

aaaaaand... you need some HUUUUDGE draw, not only 2 cards. Distant Melody is pretty nice here.

Sorry for the late replay KaraZorEl, but most of the cards are either too slow, or in Distant Melody case, wrong colour. Leyline might be an interesting SB tech later on though, so I'll note that. :)

Beacon of Unrest over Rise from the Grave

Do you find this has enough card draw? what about Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, or Distant Melody

I also am a fan of Undead Alchemist which generates a ton of tokens in multiplayer, but my decks point is to Mill

Distant Melody and Urza's Incubator could be useful here. I like it btw :)

i dont think you can afford to not run Patriarch's Bidding and Distant Melody, also Undead Alchemist, with the idea of milling just a bonus (if suspected creatureless just dont cast). off the top of my head

jonfehl: Probably not; I don't have enough rituals to actually CAST the things after I pay for Past in Flames...Mizzix's Mastery, on the other hand...

Rzepkanut: I prefer Dack Fayden in the "loot 2 per turn" slot, because his -2 is more relevant I suspect, and he's slightly less mana. However, Daretti, Scrap Savant is a good budget replacement for Jace, the Mind Sculptor (oddly enough). Thanks for the idea! :)

flluid: The most jank of secret tech! ;) I even have one lying around...

tophertbone12: I'm on the fence for Distant Melody. I was going to play it (was in the maindeck), but I cut it for draw that could be used even without already having Locusts in play. I want to find a slot for it, but what would you cut? (And if you like the deck, feel free to +1!)

Wasadia123: Ooh, I like this idea! Thank you! :)

wereotter: How did I forget him??? He needs a slot. What should I cut? ;) - and if you like the list, you're always welcome to +1! haha

TwigTech: Hmmmm. I'll consider it, but Murder of Crows already goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar OR Ashnod's Altar, and goes for a simple Comet Storm...Thoughts?

Msg_magic: Seems too high CMC, unless I'm missing something?

Podder: My feelings are that I SHOULD be running them, but I generally hate counterspells so I don't include them. As this deck becomes more tuned they'll probably become necessary (since it IS a relatively dedicated combo deck and reliant on the commander)...

Crivaro: I like the idea, thanks! :) If you like the deck, +1s are always a kind gift ;)

Thank you all, once again, for your invaluable help! This deck wouldn't be half as good without you all.
