Docent of Perfection Discussion

Zimmers_0 on The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*

Wheeling would be really cool, so would token gen to keep going with the Locus god. Stuff like Docent of Perfection  Flip and Talrand, Sky Summoner with a draw card based spell slinger.

Docent of Perfection  Flip is a backup talrand. I also see no reason to leave out Archaeomancer or Baral, Chief of Compliance. A few creatures might help you a very long way. And if only Talrand Command Beacon might be essential to grabbing him when tax gets too high. I recommend adding some more blockers as if they know Talrand is the only guy he will be killed so you're neutered. But good luck!

CHANGELOG 29.05.17

Major overhaul to account for finalized archetypes.














Note: With Welder and Daretti in the picture, I think its worth reconsidering whether we want Spine of Ish Sah. Its just pure value at that point (still slow to reduce opponents board presence, but you get your artifacts directly to the battlefield)



A few thoughts:

If we want to include Eldrazi Displacer, then I think we have to keep the painlands, and should probably include some other colorless utility lands as well. I would be okay to lose some of the tap for any color lands as well as the artefact lands for this purpose. Its also possible that the Displacer is also just too good, in which case we can add the trilands over the painlands to give Simic Domain a bit more oomph.

Speaking of: Im not familiar with the enablers for Domain, so Im gonna be relying on you a bit to help flesh out the archetype. I look forward to your suggestions!

Anyways, let me know what you think about cuts/additions and I will make the changes. After that, we should probably just switch to cubetutor to get a better idea of where we are with each archetype.

Hey Cragon18, I really like the reworking of your list. Also congratulations on managing to bring it down to 100 cards! (when making a deck in Commander this sometimes is the hardest part)

I have looked at your current list and I like it a lot because by just looking at the cards I understand what you want to do: countering stuff or bouncing stuff, keeping your hand filled thanks to Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Baral, Chief of Compliance, while your wincons complete these because each counterspell will make tokens of Docent of Perfection  Flip or will produce energy with Dynavolt Tower.

I don't know if you play multiplayer or only 1v1, but you should be aware that your strategy of countering everything is more likely to be eneffective in a multiplayer pod than in 1v1, simply because there will be more spells to counter. For this reason (depending of your hand of course) you will have to use politics (maybe the strongest weapon of all in EDH, depending on your playgroup) to become victorious and will have to assess if a card cast is enough of a threat to counter or not.

Now that you've brought your list down to 100 cards, in all honesty I think it's best if you play it so that you can see for yourself what works and what doesn't and if you think it's fun. Moving from that you can make adjustments. I also want to mention that in August a new Commander set will come out (WotC has produced Commander decks for a couple years in a row now), so you might want to pick at least one of these up as they usually contain some EDH staples and other fun cards.

HawkRider on The God of Milling

So, you've got some pretty good cards here for a mill deck. It's rather solid. There are a couple of cards I can recommend though.

First, it may be nice to run a couple of token generators to get you more mill from Phenax, God of Deception's ability. Blue/Black isn't amazing for this, but one card that comes to mind is Docent of Perfection  Flip. There are probably better cards than this, but it's an example.

Another quite frankly hilarious card is Keening Stone. It's fantastic in mill decks. It quickly gets through the opponent's library late game. I don't think I really need to say much about it. Alternatively, (though this wouldn't work with your build, really), Leyline of the Void is fantastic and can cripple some decks. Plus, it partners up fantastically with Helm of Obedience.

If you don't decide to run Leyline of the Void, Diluvian Primordial can also be really good. Use their removal and tutors, and a 5/5 flier isn't a bad body.

If you want to use any Planeswalkers, Liliana Vess, Jace Beleren and Jace, Memory Adept (and maybe Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, but it's really just his emblem...) would work well. Lili fits in pretty much any Black deck, worst case scenario she's a Vampiric Tutor for five mana without costing you life.

Other than that... Altar of the Brood is better for token decks than anything, more kill spells would probably be helpful to you and you don't run much draw at all, really. Throw in a Blue Sun's Zenith instead of Whispering Madness, if nothing else. Although running both can be pretty good, thinking about it, you draw a bunch of cards and have everyone cycle through that many cards. Might be a nice strategy.

Also, you might want to replace Dimir Guildgate with Reliquary Tower and Fellwar Stone with Thought Vessel. Having no maximum hand size is really convenient.

If anything else comes to mind while I'm working on decks today, I'll let you know. I have my own mill deck on here (at least, I think it's still here...), if you want to have a look, though since the commander is different it might not be so useful to you.

Thanks for the input DarshMcDarf. I like the paradox engine idea alot. Will have to find a copy of that. Docent of Perfection  Flip is a little shaky I'll admit, but figured i would already have the required amount of wizards in play before i ever cast an instant or sorcery so that i can flip. Will def fix the mana--time to go diggin through my lands sigh. Lol

viperfang4, I am aware of the problem with Docent of Perfection  Flip and Yahenni's Expertise/Demon of Dark Schemes. It's fine, though, because my goal is to keep their board clear. The wizard tokens are not part of the win condition, just a fun side bar if I happen to get any. I really want the 5/4 (or 6/5, if I do manage to flip it) body that flies.

Spell Shrivel is better! Thank you! I would like to include Disallow but I don't own any, and these control decks are not my main style, so I haven't made much investment in blue.

Negate is quite good, and I like Horribly Awry because it exiles the cards (unlike Essence Scatter). Sure, it doesn't hit some of the larger creatures, but those aren't the creatures that generally give me the most problems. I played a lot of people wanting delirium, so Horribly Awry definitely annoyed them. I had 3x main board but decided that Just the Wind will be better in the main, and the above list will be adjusted accordingly quite soon. I will give Essence Scatter a try, though, and maybe it will be better because it can hit a broader range of creatures.

Thanks for the feedback! This is definitely a work in progress and it needs help...

Deck Update (5/20/17):I found that Daring Sleuth  Flip was very rarely able to flip early enough to make a big impact, it seemed like it wasn't worth it even to just keep him to trigger and flip Docent of Perfection  Flip. Instead I replaced him with Baral, Chief of Compliance, Baral, Chief of Compliance is a Wizard so he synergizes automatically with Docent of Perfection  Flip. Not only this, Baral, Chief of Compliance even allows Docent of Perfection  Flip to flip faster as it allows me to cast my counters for less mana, on top of that adding more draw power.

Next while Bloodbriar often gained many counters, I found it much better to sub him out for Briarbridge Patrol. While there are only 3 in the deck, I feel as though the synergy will be enough to get the combo off quite often.

I also found that while this deck had great board presence, it lacked a finishing card so I added in Confront the Unknown to pump up a creature for potentially lethal damage. I also added in Blossoming Defense for the hexproof effect to stop cards that destroy creatures.

Lastly I cleaned up my counter spells and added Disallow the current best counter spell in standard.
