Ebony Owl Netsuke Discussion

Fevered Visions does the work of both Howling Mine and Ebony Owl Netsuke efficiently, so that could be copies 5-8 of Ebony Owl. You could pair it with tap cards in blue like Exhaustion and burn effects in red like Fateful Showdown, Gaze of Adamaro, and Runeflare Trap.

There's also good ol' Black Vise.

So, my current deck in standard is a mill control deck.

For that one:

Teferi's Dismissal

Instant

Return target creature you don't control to its owner's hand.

Draw a card.


For my modern deck, which recurs elementals:

Death's Whisper

Creature - Elemental

When Death's Whisper enters the battlefield, destroy target creature with converted mana cost 2 or less.

Menace, Haste

At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Death's Whisper

4/1


For my favorite commander deck, mt Kambal deck, I've talked about ad nauseum...

Kaya's home plane of Tolvada has a maddening sky, so here's my riff on that

Observatory of Tolvada

Land

Observatory of Tolvada enter the battlefield tapped.

: Add .

, : Each player puts the cards in their hand on the bottom of their library in any order, then draws cards equal to the then draws cards equal to the greatest number of cards a player put on the bottom of their library this way. ________-

I think Teferi's Puzzle Box represents going mad, also Whispering Madness. Viseling, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Misers' Cage, Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted, Underworld Dreams, Iron Maiden, etc. would love this effect. ______--

Super fun, repeat the challenge!

I really like the design, although I think it's a tad weak, although Shadowborn Apostle is lowkey broken. Not sure, maybe it'd be fair. Difficult to gauge these effects.

Here's the Red one:

Flamekin

Creature - Elemental

A deck can have any number of cards named Flamekin.

Haste

At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Flamekin, then exile any number of cards named Flamekin in your graveyard. Each card exiled this way deals 1 damage to any target.

2/1


Probably very broken especially with Burning Inquiry, The Flame of Keld, etc.


I'm reissuing my challenge, as actually that's not what I meant, but very cool nonetheless.

So the Ascend/City's Blessing mechanic cares about the number of permanents

Undergrowth, Delirium, Threshold Crackling Drake all care about the graveyard, and the latter also care about Exile.

The Rack, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Iron Maiden, Venser's Journal, Sword of War and Peace, etc. Care about cards in hand.

I meant total number cards in library, or exile, or types in these zones etc. Is important to your common.

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 .
