Ebony Owl Netsuke Discussion

My first thought was Magmatic Force and Havoc Festival to draw a card every turn. but neither work because your commander identifies as blue and black.

I did a gatherer search for black and blue cards that deal damage during each upkeep, and the results are interesting: Most of them dealt with hand size.

There are only 2 unconditional damage artifacts:

And there were two other outliers:

Did you ever test Fevered Visions and or Ebony Owl Netsuke when you were making this deck out of curiosity?

Hey, a fellow Nekusar player! I also play this deck fairly casually, so I'll be making some pretty budget addition suggestions:

Ebony Owl Netsuke

Phyresis

Guildgates and other tap lands if you're having trouble with mana.

Lastly, I don't see too much in the way of defense, I think you may be able to take advantage of pillow fort cards ( Collective Restraint ) or board wipes.

Maybe add in Day's Undoing for another wheel effect. Howling Mine and Dictate of Kruphix are a great way to get cards in your opponent's hands. Ebony Owl Netsuke also helps take chunks out of your opponent's life.

I am in the process of building a new mono-blue Commander deck (Given to Fly). The goal of the deck is to bounce creatures (primarily my opponents' creatures, but I can also bounce my own if it's beneficial), draw a bunch of cards, and win by a combination of slowly draining opponents with cards like Ebony Owl Netsuke and swinging against defenseless opponents with cards like Sturmgeist . I had initially intended for Heidar, Rimewind Master to be in the deck because of the cheap activated cost to bounce creatures, but as it turns out, snow-covered basic lands are expensive as hell and I don't have any. What would you recommend to replace him? I was thinking maybe something like Dominating Licid or Serendib Sorcerer , but maybe you all have better ideas. Thank you!!

I think Temple Bell / Howling Mine always sound like a good idea but ultimately become your undoing; especially in a multiplayer game... someone is gonna end up drawing/playing something you cant deal with and or combo off (thats my opinion)... in a 1V1 game it could work with blowing up lands with Sinkhole / Strip Mine and all that kinda fun stuff; and id say go the opposite rout of The Rack / Shrieking Affliction and go with Black Vise / Ebony Owl Netsuke .

I suggest Necrogen Mists to keep hands empty and Dakmor Salvage for its synergy with Smallpox / Raven's Crime ... for some protection Ensnaring Bridge can help keep creatures from plowing you over and Pack Rat / Zombie Infestation can be good for getting value from "dead" discard spells.... there is also the queen of 8-Rack herself Liliana of the Veil .

Kederekt Parasite, only works if you have a red permanent (Artifact, Enchantment, Creature or Planeswalker), you don't have any. Your playing in a similar space to Owling Mine (Ebony Owl Netsuke) decks, but wanting to leverage discard, so Gnat Miser might make more sense as a 1 drop creature. There are a couple of 3 drop creatures which are worth considering too Master of the Feast and Adamaro, First to Desire. Lastly here are a couple of spells that cause hand discard and draw; Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate and one that plays well with Burning Inquiry if you keep it Runeflare Trap. Hope this helps, good luck with your brew.

Geralf_Cecani, already made the case for adding blue or green, I'm going to make a case for black or staying in mono white.

First off black actually has a straight up fog Darkness, splashing black also lets you use Batwing Brume to its full extent and the obvious Lingering Souls. Plansewalker wise you would have access to Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, both are pretty reasonable and more budget friendly than most. Note too that a new BE planeswalker is due for release with the next set.

This idea isn't really mine, I got it from foxinsox's deck Competitive Solemnity in Selesnya. This deck uses Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife to create a board state where you can't die. This is likely to work simply because enchantments are much harder to remove than other permanents. This is again a great way to stall out the board and frustrate your opponent. In the same vein so might Gideon of the Trials and white is the colour of tax cards like Rule of Law and Ghostly Prison...

Lastly, your card draw choices remind me of Owl-ing Mine, this deck uses Ebony Owl Netsuke to deal it's damage and cards like Boomerang and Remand to stall your opponents board. Again this isn't strictly my idea, as I got it from DaFerra's deck Owl-ing Mine.

Hope this was of help and give you some ideas...
