@Shadow02

Not unlike Najeela, her tribal appeal isn’t worth the opportunity cost of going “real” tribal.

Deck having her at the helm usually want to make her single triggers count, providing cheap evasive creatures (eg Slither Blade ) and possibly a way to bounce her back to the hand so she can be played again for the trigger. She can get rolling with a lucky shot or two for a time warp effect (or not so lucky with Mystical Tutor and the like). And if she can get through, Doomsday or Insidious Dreams for stack of extra turn spells usually can go for the game.

Basically think of her as a somewhat weaker dimir Edric, Spymaster of Trest ; evasive combat dmg for extra turns and value.

Now, IMO she isn’t just another Edric. It would be a stretch to call Edric strictly better, but I think he is significantly better. Green also compliments blue better than black here by getting Edric the needed pieces to combat stax, recur extra turns spells and the ramp necessary to cast 5+cmc spells by t3-4. Black provides tutors and some creature removal, but I don’t imagine it living up to what green offers here. Also, Edeic is less complicated to milk for advantage. Re-playing Yuriko would require constant mana expenses to keep things rolling and hence would slow you down. Also, she digs slower than Edric. I didn’t test optimized competitive Yuriko, but without tutors to go for Doomsday or Dreams, she seems far slower and far less explosive than Edric.

However she clearly can do more than mid-power generals. With a tutor (which black has) and an open opponent, she can end the game without passing the turn (in one turn effectively). She can get rolling as early as t2 consistently, requiring only an attacker and UB mana. Finally, she has a clear wincon and a value engine sitting in the command tone, making the deck run smoothly off of her alone if need be.

High power seems to be the place for decks that can be badass outside cEDH and decks that can pull cEDH strategies similar to those of their more competitive peers, but not with the efficiency it would take for them to be widely considered “competitive”. And Yuriko compared to Edric seems to fit the latter description perfectly.

(Disclaimer; I don’t play cEDH. I keep my ear to the ground and I play as powerful decks as my budget allows. But I don’t have the budget or the people needed to play cEDH regularly. However I did try to build Yuriko and I’ve been playing and studying Edric for about a year. Written up there are my thoughts on the 2 that came up as the result. If my “references” aren’t enough for you, you’re free to ignore everything I wrote. I just wanted to share my 2 cents on something I was asking myself 6 months ago)

@SynergyBuild: Sorry. My nostalgia for an amazing game of yore got the best of me. Please disregard.

Anyways, I wanted to add a new level of restriction for whatever means necessary when having your Doomsday Package exiled. My above post stated three primary ways to lost this; so recursion like Unearth , & Reanimate are all out. I already have the Primer up there, as well as making my own for Superfriends; though I dunno how to hardcode this as well as the one above. As I stated earlier:

: Frantic Search , Gush , Pact of Negation (?), Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . Package Cracker: Basically any Cantrip.

: Dark Ritual , Night's Whisper , Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . Package Cracker: ???

Then again, for laughs, I wanted to also include a only Doomsday Package, but that's for another time.

But as I'm also making a Primer, I'd like to ask someone how to do it in a way the one above does this... I, mean, I'm thinking of a 1-5 Star Rating system as well...

ATTACKU OF THE KILLUH SHIBA INU WOLVES!

I'm still working on a Doomsday Package. Predict seems good (According to a Primer for this, it counts as 1+2, for a Three Point Avg alone. I'm using Laboratory Maniac , Pact of Negation (Unless Foil is good for you as well.), I don't want to use Lion's Eye Diamond , or Yawgmoth's Will , but I do need a mana source... So, we have three cards to use: Predict , Laboratory Maniac , & Pact of Negation / Foil / Force of Will . Any two ideas that would work here?

Here's some hate though: I'm trying to make a combo w/ Shimmer , but I'm wondering which of the Following is better: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , or Blanket of Night . The Former is a land, but I dunno if phasing Urborg is good or not. Blanket of Night isn't a land; & is odd casted as well. Thoughts?

For the Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool combo, can you think of any alts for the latter? I can think of Omen Machine , but are there any others? Just wondering...

Since I'll be running Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt again, should I replace Ashen Rider w/ Angel of Despair again?

Is this combo too much?: Leonin Arbiter + Maralen of the Mornsong + Necropotence + Children of Korlis ? How do you think it works; & is it effective? Should I just keep the latter 2 instead if not?

Also, I'm working on a Superfriends Primer if anyone cares; it's WIP though...

@scotchtapedsleeves: Hmmm... Well, I just need to get my mind out of this for now. Backing this on topic like some rando's Uncle's Ratty Old Pickup (Actually, that sounds stupid in my book, considering my current status as an Uncle myself... :/), I still probably need some advice for several things; I have too many decks to cut until the legal 100 card max.

@SynergyBuild: Well, after finding out there WILL be 36 Walkers in (WAR), There Will Be Blood. (The Movie Name... :P)

Anyways, I'm still asking about what to do about a certain Doomsday combo to use w/ your suggested Predict . I'm obviously focusing on Decking Out, & Winning w/ Laboratory Maniac . I'm also using Pact of Negation as protection. That's 3/5 pieces for the Domsday Device. What would you reccomend after this? Also NO Lion's Eye Diamond or Yawgmoth's Will , please.

I'm quite surprised enough Tibalt is returning, & Sorin, & Jiang Yanggu + Mowu... & some newbloods that look like badass walkers. To be honest, I want a New, INFINTELY SUPERIOR Tibalt for Superfriends, & I'd LOVE to know how it took SOOOO Long for Sorin Markov to break his stone casing; I mean, he's as strong as Ugin, who's on par w/ Nicol Bolas until recent events (Most Likely...). I, mean... he could just punch a hole in Nahiri's Stone Encasing, & try & follow her from here. Also, still NO Garruk Wildspeaker reappearence? I wonder if he's dead... /endrant

Also, what's better; Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , or Blanket of Night ? I want to use this w/ Shimmer , so... Opinions?

Is there also, any alternatives for Knowledge Pool in the Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir combo, & if so, how good are they as well?

Considering I'm thinking of running Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt , should I bring back Angel of Despair ?

Should I run Leonin Arbiter over Mindlock Orb ? & what about the following for this combo?: Maralen of the Mornsong , Necropotence , & Children of Korlis

Is this too much? I'm already discombobulated by the idea of XXXVI Walkers; & not one, Garruk. He'd be a true hero for killing a, now, Agent of Bolas. Where the crapola is he? He hasn't been seen once since Core Set 2015... X/

@SynergyBuild: Yeah... I'd like it better if it were a Neowalker w/ an Emblem as a one-sided Humility ; sadly, not one exists thus far, & I expect the same to be so in even War of the Spark (WAR). I'll remove the combo from there. As for Doomsday ; I'm trying to piece together such a combo; & I got thus so far...

  1. (Unknown use of mana outside of staples like Gush , Lion's Eye Diamond , & Yawgmoth's Will . Unsure if this is possible.)
  2. Cast Frantic Search . Draw 2, Discard 2, Untap 3 Lands.
  3. Cast Laboratory Maniac
  4. Counter whatever in your way w/ Pact of Negation
  5. Pay 2 w/ Gitaxian Probe for the win.

Though what to replace w/ Predict would be even better still. Still, the combo needs some kind of gas to fill up the tank; & I'm not sure if it even exists.

Though I still have a lot that needs answers though. For now; I'm making the damned Gate Deck...

BMH: Introspected, & Introverted; The UnExperience

Commander / EDH* BMHKain

SCORE: 2 | 20 COMMENTS | 348 VIEWS


Alright. I think I know where this deck should go. However, w/ all such garbage in the fray, I actually have more to ask than show as a result. Here we go... Again.

  1. It seems my creatures seem to have an ETB theme in mind; most notably for the use of Eldrazi Displacer . What exactly do you think would be a good alt in a situation where ol' Displacer: Enemy of Eldrazi, & their Ultra Beast from there? How to protect this?

  2. After watching a recent episode of GAME KNIGHTS, one such combo jumped out of the water. Perplexing Chimera & a Bounce Combo ( Eldrazi Displacer again.) to not only get the permanent you traded for, but also getting the Chimera back. Is this legit?

  3. We seem to have a Flicker/ETB theme for the most part. What would you recommend in Yennett's colors ( BTW.) for alts, or even protection?

  4. Word on the Street states Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , & Shimmer works when you state "Swamp", thus Phsasing out all lands for each players turn. If this is incorrect, is there a way to improve on this? I mean, Urborg does Phase back in on the End Step (Is this true...?~), so, what could go wrong, & what to recommend for supplemental? Actually, is Blanket of Night better than Urborg though? I just wanted to be sure as Tomb of Yawgmoth is a land, but I dunno how well it works for Shimmer ...

  5. I dunno why, but I thought of Putting in a Doomsday package in. After being suggested Predict , I have Laboratory Maniac , & Pact of Negation . I also have Gush after changing my mind. But I still have only 4/5 Pieces. I also want to use this whenever I use DOOMSDAY on the same turn I draw it; while ending games with the package. What would be the last card you'd recommend? Besides Lion's Eye Diamond , & Yawgmoth's Will , of course.

  6. If I would put the following combo in: Maralen of the Mornsong + Necropotence + Children of Korlis in, is it really better to put Leonin Arbiter in in place of Mindlock Orb ? It does cost less, & his ability to bypass one's own ineptitude of searching is great. Plus, I've too much anyway. I think I should cut down. What about you?

  7. With the opinion that Mnemonic Wall will be added, how should I abuse the following effects?: Silence , & Darkness (The latter only fits as my life, Vorthos-wise, is currently in quite a state...)? What? I wanted to use a Fog effect, but there were too many in … 3X

  8. Since this deck is meant for the largest amount of hate possible, how does Leyline of the Void & Tormod's Crypt seem here?

And... That's all my questions worth asking. I'd really like an opinion on all these. That said, I wonder about what to do after this...

...Though 5 Color Gates.dec might seem like a great idea... Thoughts?

FenIsABasicSwamp on Grenzo - He's Just Standing There...Menacingly!

I feel like Past in Flames is an obvious include for the spellslinger/ Doomsday version of Grenzo because you can put it in the yard with him and then play all your stuff straight from there, including Doomsday and all your rituals a second time.
