Edric, Spymaster of Trest Discussion

luther on Any cards like the c17 ...

Gahiji, Honored One and Edric, Spymaster of Trest are the only things I can really think of outside of curses and vows, and they don't fit your mardu needs.

I do like the idea of Command Beacon, and I've been considering going up to 36 lands for a while. Probably in the next update I'll cut something for that, since it seems like a great effect to have, especially on a land.


Currently I'm running Hornet Queen over Avenger of Zendikar because I don't have all that many fliers, so getting 5 flying blockers could be very relevant. However, I haven't been seeing as many dragon decks in my meta lately, so I could see making the swap.

I'm not a huge fan of Wild Beastmaster, since it doesn't give trample, and honestly I don't actually have that many creatures out most of the time. I could see running Pathbreaker Ibex because it gives trample, but for now I'm sticking with Dragon Throne of Tarkir because it can pump your team the turn you play it (although it takes a ton of mana).

I like the idea of Sekki, Seasons' Guide in theory, but I feel like in practice it would just leave too many decisions up to my opponents, and after they durdle around not letting it make that many tokens, just die to a board wipe. If anything, I think I would run Pentavus as another expensive token generator.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest was in a previous version of the deck, and didn't do enough in my opinion. Since then, I have cut even more token generators, so I think it isn't quite good enough.

Unfortunately, Sakashima the Impostor is a bit out of my price range, and even if it was, I feel like developing an extra Ezuri would just be a huge overextension. If anything, I might consider running Vizier of Many Faces as my clone effect, simply because I have it on hand.

I really like your suggestions on things to cut. Praetor's Counsel feels like it just costs too much mana for what it does, and Magus of the Library definitely is clunky a lot of the time. Maybe if the magus had a slightly easier cost I would consider keeping it in. Those two will definitely be coming out of the deck in a future update. I do, however, think that Tezzeret's Gambit is worth it. The card draw is helpful, and I feel that proliferating is very powerful. Until I find another decent piece of card draw or two, I think it will stay in to help with that aspect of the deck.

Pathbreaker Ibex and Wild Beastmaster should help pump the whole team and push damage through. Avenger of Zendikar should give more tokens than Hornet Queen. Sekki, Seasons' Guide could even be worth it as an unkillable spirit generator in this deck. Edric, Spymaster of Trest could help with card draw. Maybe Sakashima the Impostor as a second copy of Ezuri or Rashmi or something? I feel like Praetor's Counsel and Tezzeret's Gambit are droppable. Magus of the Library seems a bit clunky.

Have you considered adding Edric, Spymaster of Trest? Could provide you with a great chunk of draw each turn, which synergizes well with Kydele.

Yep Dissipation Field, also people don't think of it this way... but Axis of Mortality , Edric, Spymaster of Trest all have some sort of - "don't attack me" element

Also a couple of cards in here I'm liking the look of for Selenia in the new version of Lich and Evra, Halcyon Witness.

Other than that, Tetsuko Umezawa interests me, but I'm not sure how I'd make him work as a Commander really, as he is highly unconventional for mono-blue (but would probably slot nicely in Edric, Spymaster of Trest lists).
