merrowMania on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

New Cards (now that I won't be banned for posting them this time):
enter image description here - It's nice to have another option to stop YawgWin. It is an alternative to Graf Cage if you want GSZ, Chord, and Pod to work in your deck.

enter image description here - Can go into Tana-Tymna Blood Pod or Derevi for creature heavy metas. It competes with the new Thalia though, so meh.

enter image description here - T5 with T4 potential if mono-w stax works. None of the Vampire synergy is available in mono-w, though it is nice in Edgar stax. It sucks that you only get one vamp no matter how many you attack with.

enter image description here - Torpor Dwarf is an alternative to Hushwing Gryff, though the lack of flash may put it in the same position as Leonin Arbiter vs. Aven Mindcensor.

enter image description here - At three mana, it may have the combo potential and color that Conspiracy did not.

enter image description here - Dominate #2 for Mizzix.

enter image description here - Tier 1, since that's where legendary Merfolk go now. But more seriously, Tier 4, since the tax is not irrelevant, but may slide down to Tier 5 if a decent strategy cannot be thought of (I keep comparing it to Geist, where you can at least have a Polymorph plan).

enter image description here - Seemed notable enough to mention. Does not ramp, but it's decent gravehate.

enter image description here - We were correct: it costs 5. A LOT less powerful when it does not cost two. Too slow/unreliable (based on matchup) to see play, especially since it does not count commanders.

enter image description here - Latest incarnation of Bob, nothing too notable since most decks would just prefer Bob

enter image description here - Tier 4 at LEAST, maybe Tier 3, since it is red ramp. It could have a stax build that sacs the tokens like with the mono-w vamp.

enter image description here - I REALLY want this to be a thing. I don't care if it's too much mana, SOMEONE SOMEWHERE NEEDS TO CAST THIS!!!

enter image description here - If it was a 4-drop, it would likely see play, but since it only digs based on mana cost, storm will not run it (though it is funny with FoW).

enter image description here - Budget Selvala card?

enter image description here - ShaperSavant's Sanctuary is okay. Has the Leovold (technically Rayne) protection for LabMan combos, but beyond that, highly meta-dependent.

enter image description here - Tier 3. There seem to be enough decent Pirates being printed and otherwise (Gravehate Pirate, Pirate Bob, Cloud Pirates) that the running of a bunch of Pirates will not destroy the deck.

enter image description here - It's not a 6-drop, so Tier 4 at best. It itself is too clunky, as well as the dinos so far.

enter image description here - As was discussed, it's getting an errata that kills the combo potential. I still like that it steals Crypt and Sol Ring pretty well. It's at least going into the Grixis Pirates deck.

enter image description here - T2.5 at least. I certainly wasn't expecting it to cost more than Zegana, but it seems strictly better nonetheless, since you can more easily play it for value instead of JUST as a Food Chain outlet.

enter image description here - I have seen and played Pithing Needle, so I am not averse to another option.

enter image description here - Another fucking least it has applications in decks that play Edric...

A few things. First up, when would you ever want to fetch up Bonesplitter?

Secondly, given the fact it is 4 mana to steal a cmc 1 creature, and you have no Ancient Tombs or similar, would not Control Magic be better than Dominate.

Thirdly, stuff like Inspector seems a bit meh? What is its pay off.

Neotrup on Multiplayer games, losing players permanents.

1 month ago

An important reason the rule is like it is is so that if you lose (or concede) you can pick up all your cards and leave the table. If you get an emergency phone call you don't want to leave your Oketra the True with a group of strangers because you had a pickup game in a card store.

As for permanents you control when you leave, if they entered under someone else's control and you took them (with Dominate, Act of Aggression, or the like), they get returned to their previous controller. If they entered under your control (with Bribery, Beacon of Unrest, or the like), they get exiled. Either way they stay at the table so their owner can collect them when they leave the game.

ClockworkSwordfish on Multiplayer games, losing players permanents.

Section 8 of the comprehensive rules covers multiplayer games, and rule 800.4a explains what happens when a player leaves the game.

Rule 800.4a Show

So if a player loses, all of his permanents immediately leave with him. The Compulsory Rest would disappear, leaving the creature free once again. Likewise, if the losing player had taken a creature without the use of a permanent (say via Bribery or Dominate) then the creature would return to its owner.

Neotrup on Casting opponents cards using Sen ...

2 months ago

When a permanent spell resolves it is put onto the battlefield under it's controller's control. Because your opponent cast the spell they will control the spell (and subsequent creature) until another effect dictates otherwise (such as Aethersnatch while on the stack or Dominate while on the battlefield).

  • Fixed broken links.

I'm trying to make the following changes, but I'm getting ornithopers whenever try to make an edit that adds a decklist. Not sure what's causing that.

For now I'm just going to pretend like this isn't happening and carry on down here.

ajacobik, Ok, I checked out the Erebos list here you said you were talking out (T/O link here: [Primer] [Competitive] Erebos, God of Mana), and for fuck sake, that list is not optimized at all. The curve is WAY too high, there's not nearly enough ramp, and it's using bloated and unnecessary win conditions. I can see Erebos moving up to T3, but you got to provide a better example of a cEDH decklist, because that is not it.

HarroHunter, You're welcome.

I think Paradox Engine is probably the way to go with Samut, like the deck chaosumbreon87 posted here: Samut Ad Nauseum.

On another note, would you like to make the example list for Savra that I was talking about? I can make it based on your Hapetra list if you don't want to, but I thought I should give you first chance on making the list.

Lilbrudder, Now that you've updated your Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck to include Protean Hulk and have a primer, do you still think Voidia's list should be the one in the description? Your's seems like the better deck to me at this point, and I can put it back if you want.

I'm also going to put your Thrasios / Vial Smasher list up on List of Partner Pairs by Tier.

Paradox Scepter Storm: cEDH Primer is the more advanced version than Yawgmoth's Engine, correct?

The Ixlan spoilers keep coming:

  • Gishark, Sun's Avatar is hugely overcosted Naya dinosaur tribal. T5. (If that actually is a 3 in it's mana cost it might be better.)
  • Admiral Beckett Brass, Grixis pirate tribal. The stealing effect could actually be pretty neat control if satisfying the 3 pirate requirement isn't too much trouble. I'll reserve judgement.
  • Kopala, Warden of Waves, Blue merfolk tribal. A mild tax that only effects your opponents' removal isn't really that great. T4.
  • Mynea Frian, Dark Apostle... Mono-White vampires. That's cool I guess. Unfortunately it takes the tribe 100% out of it's preexisting card pool. T5.

Some other things I think are useful:

All in all I'm picking up a really strong tribal vibe from these leaks. Commander 2017 is also going to be tribal, so we might get some nice synergies between the 2 sets.

Some more Suggestions to the ones of dudualdo42:

Abduction, Confiscate, Control Magic, Dominate, Mind Control, Treachery, etc.)

Beguiler of Wills and Willbreaker are worth a look at too, if you ask me.

Maybe you can include Shrewd Negotiation for some shenanigans? Maybe to give the opponent a tapped Mana Vault, Steel Golem or something disruptive?

Found even more:

Chromeshell Crab, Dream Leash, Persuasion
