Emrakul, the Promised End Discussion

LVL_666 on The Gathering Storm: Animar EDH

This is a rather high-priced suggestion, so take it worth a grain of salt BUT wouldn't Gaea's Cradle be a good addition to such a creature heavy deck? Then you have Maelstrom Wanderer who has cascade, cascade, which can only help your storm count. It's rather high on the CMC though, so i'd suggest that you swap it out for another high CMC creature in your deck that doesn't directly contribute to the storm theme - Emrakul, the Promised End. While a great card in and of itself, it kind of doesn't contribute to the theme and strategies of the deck. But want to know what does? Shrieking Drake. Using it's "return a creature you control" clause targeting itself a few times you can get additional +1/+1 counters and a storm count going.

I'm thinking about adding back a single Shrine of the Forsaken Gods and adding a single Emrakul, the Promised End.

It might be counter-intuitive to the deck's "casual" premise (although can Eldrazi every truly be casual?), but mind control probably fits in the aliens' invasion plan somewhere? Maybe a 1-of of Emrakul, the Promised End?

Casey4321, Love-in-Theory, Raging_Squiggle, or anyone else who's interested:

I was planning something on the more competitive side of the spectrum, albeit not quite the normal deck. Cloudstone Curio and Ancestral Statue shenanigans will be a major point of the deck.

I was thinking something pseudo-stormy. Mostly creatures with entirely colorless costs, and I could chain them for free if I stack the mana costs correctly. As in, I cast a 1-cost creature then 2-cost creature then a 3-cost creature, etc, and pay zero mana total (off of an Animar with only 1 counter). I.e. heavy value abuse to generate huge board states very fast. This is also really "cute" with Paradoxical Outcome.

There are also five viable infinite storm combos in those colors that I'm aware of: Cloudstone Curio+two creatures that are free with Animar; Cloudstone Curio+Aluren; Aluren+self bounce creature; Palinchron with Animar at 4 counters; or Ancestral Statue if Animar has 4 counters.

All of these also have the side effect of making Animar into a LARGE/LARGE, so I could win by giving Animar trample, or just playing Grapeshot or Aetherflux Reservoir or something. And of course if the combo doesn't go off, there's always a Blightsteel Colossus or Emrakul, the Promised End to close out the game :)

Are there any cards that you could think of that could help with this strategy? Primarily in giving Animar counters faster, cheap and strong creatures that happen to be colorless in cost, or giving me the draw that's required for a storm deck...

I've never tried building proper storm in EDH - several of you have far more experience in that arena than me. What's worked for you?

Delta-117 on Ormendahl Golgari Delirium

I like your addition of Westvale Abbey  Flip, I don't know why I never thought of trying that myself. Currently I was trying out a foil Decimator of the Provinces over my former foil Emrakul, the Promised End.

You can certainly have a +1 from me as I really like Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip and now I regret trading my two copies away, I'm certainly going to need to get another one now.

Here is my deck anyways if you want to give it a look.

B/G Delirium - AER

Wolfninja on Selling some stuff

1 week ago

Lately I just haven't been playing magic very much, so I've decided that I'm gonna try and sell some of the more valuable cards I have, but don't really use/need. So, here's a list of them (with what I'd like to sell them for):

Foil Ravnica Doubling Season $85

2x Liliana, the Last Hope $30 each, $55 for both

2x Torrential Gearhulk $18 each, $30 for both

Foil Khans Flooded Strand $35

Foil Modern Masters Eternal Witness $12

Grim Flayer $18

Craterhoof Behemoth $20

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar $10

4x Khans Flooded Strand $11 each, $36 for all

Chinese (?) Future Sight Summoner's Pact $12

I will also offer a $2 discount for each buying the above cards in bulk, unless it's already priced as a set. For example you're interested in the 4x Flooded Strand, it will not count for each of those because I'm already discounting the price if you get all 4. If you wanted them and Nissa for example, I would discount $2 on the Nissa.

Here are some more lower value ones, I will discount $1 each for buying cards in bulk, again not if it's already being discounted for the set:

2x Foil Modern Master 2015 Remand

2x Birds of Paradise, one is 8th edition the other is M12, $7 and $4 respectively, $8 for both.

Phyrexian Metamorph $6

Hangarback Walker $5

Foil Worldwake Dispel $7

Relentless Dead $4

2x Foil Den Protector, one is prerelease foil, $8 for both

Normal Foil Cinder Glade$5

Foil Temple of Epiphany $5

4x Game Trail $4 each, $12 for all

3x Atarka's Command $6 each, $15 for all

2x M15 Chord of Calling $6 each, $10 for both

2x Mirrodin Duplicant $4 each, $6 for both

4x Abrupt Decay $7 each, $22 for all

Spirebluff Canal $7

Sulfur Falls $6

2x Collected Company $9 each, $15 for both

Emrakul, the Promised End $8

2x Kolaghan's Command $7 each, $12 for both

Free shipping on all orders, I will ship in a padded envelope with tracking if the value is high enough (probably over $40?). Also, I would prefer to sell them bulked together, so I won't do orders less than $10 and would prefer they be over $20. PayPal preferred, and will be the only thing I accept on high value orders. I believe all of them are good condition, a couple might be lightly played but no worse than that, I can provide pictures of any of them if wanted. I can answer any questions and might be open to negotiating price as well.

Maximinn on Great Moments for a Heel Turn

AceGambitDragonfly: Thanks for your feedback. I only play Magic with a handful of friends at the kitchen table and we don't ever use sideboards. Infinite Obliteration is there because one guy keeps wrecking us with Reflector Mage and Emrakul, the Promised End so I'm hoping to snuff those out early if I get the chance. If I played in real tournaments, Infinite Obliteration would definitely be a sideboard card or not included at all.

Mark of Mutiny does look like a strictly better choice than Act of Treason for this deck since I'd be unlikely to take control of a creature if I didn't have an way to destroy it before the end of the turn. If the deck runs well I'll probably make the switch. As it is, it's built entirely of cards I already owned which is why there's a lot of 1 ofs.

Delta-117 on My first Game Day

1 week ago

Only had 10 players at the first gameday and 8 later that day at my lgs for the second. I came I think it was 5th the first time and then the second time I in fact placed first with my B/G delirium deck. Now I chose not to do anything like Winding Constrictor and all of that as I wasn't going to stop playing my Liliana, the Last Hopes, Grim Flayers and Ishkanah, Grafwidows mainboard. The only changes I made were the addition of 1 Verdurous Gearhulk over a Noxious Gearhulk, added in a couple of Fatal Push's too, and instead of my foil Emrakul, the Promised End I went with a foil Decimator of the Provinces which I usually emerge cast off of an Ishkanah, Grafwidow.
