theindigoeffect on Looking for Creatures that Cheat ...

1 month ago

I've been tuning my Animar, Soul of Elements deck for a while, and while I'm usually quite good at protecting him with cards like Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Voidmage Prodigy, and Venser, Shaper Savant, I think that I still need more low cmc creatures that can cheat out my fatties, just in case Animar, Soul of Elements gets nuked.

A little information about my deck: I don't run anything but creatures, which gives me a lot of synergy and allows me to make uninhibited use of cards Nullstone Gargoyle and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, so I'm not interested in non-creature cards like Quicksilver Amulet.

I run a few Eldrazi, but the deck is mostly focused on playing creatures with stax/disruption effects like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser.

I don't know of many cards like Elvish Piper, other than Djinn of Wishes and Mindwrack Liege, but while they are decent, they aren't quite as efficient as Elvish Piper is, and I could still use more options.

Please help!

Thanks for the upvote/comment/suggestions seshiro_of_the_orochi! Totally on board with Sensei's Divining Top as a non-budget power up to this build very neat card. Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign at a glance seems tempting however for this particular build seems like a trap. if i had different sphinxes in here that less to cast would be too good to pass up... but the fact that it messes up the top 4 card of the library and puts two of them in the Graveyard doesnt seem good here... at least not without having recursion effects like Pull from the Deep/Snapcaster Mage and such. Neat card though... just dont think its good enough to replace Sphinx of Jwar Isle... i do think its worth play testing as a substitute for Djinn of Wishes at very least. Thanks again!

Definitely take out Failed Inspection Traumatic Visions Marang River Prowler Aether Meltdown Rod of Ruin Millstone Slayer's Cleaver Soul Separator Lens of Clarity Pacification Array Tome Scour Winged Sliver Windrider Patrol Sliver Construct Skyline Predator Shifting Sliver Hinterland Drake Monastery Flock Kheru Spellsnatcher Deep-Sea Terror Diffusion Sliver Mystical Teachings

I know thats a lot but most of those cards are just straight bad for commander, and the slivers only benefit each other and theres just not enough of them, replace those and I have a few more suggestions

Serum Visions Cephalid Constable Chasm Skulker (def get Skulker) Deadeye Navigator Delver of Secrets  Flip Disciple of the Ring Djinn of Wishes Contingency Plan and Niblis of Frost are just a few more that are pretty good

Opifex on Blue in commander ?

Brainstorm and Djinn of Wishes are my favorite blue art. The foil Djinn of Wishes looks amazing. Contingency Plan is a great card. I play blue green in EDH so I can play cards like Eternal Dominion. Unsummon is the blue control cantrip, try to mess up their tempo by countering the next play with Counterspell. Stolen Identity is good if you use flying. Elite Arcanist

Contingency Plan along with Clone, Djinn of Wishes, and Polymorph could let you play larger spells earlier on. Archaeomancer and Mnemonic Wall having flash with that many instants is great. Add Peregrine Drake and Ghostly Flicker then you can shapeshift your clones and go infinite. Evolving Wilds???
