Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

1 day ago

Hi weezel,

I was thinking about my Reveillark alternative win-con's,

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Reveillark + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

It's also recursive with Grand Abolisher or Dark Confidant etc, in addition to Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Karmic Guide

The downside is, it's CMC5 (), and needs sac outlet and Enabler Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Karmic Guide .

Hatred is CMC5 () and just needs Kaalia of the Vast but also likes guys like Baneslayer Angel , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Gisela, the Broken Blade , Lyra Dawnbringer , Serra Ascendant or Whip of Erebos .

Was thinking, it's a different win-con (only 1 player too in some cases), but other than being high CMC, would allow me to cheat in an A/D/D and Commander Damage kill a player if left unblocked as well (Instant speed).

Combat Celebrant is enticing because of his CMC3 (), other than his obvious Exert ability which can land 2 A/D/D in 1 turn, do some mass damage with someone like Balefire Dragon or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , but his real power is that he doesn't need the sac outlet.

Combat Celebrant + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker | Infinite Combat Phases

Potentially a win-con with someone like, Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Demonlord Belzenlok , Doom Whisperer , Hellkite Tyrant , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Etc. unless there is something large enough to block the Trample indefinitely. Doesn't matter if Combat Celebrant is blocked, just making the copy, allows for the next attack to occur. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker never gets in harms way.

I'm sure there are more ways to abuse him, Splinter Twin obviously, which doesn't work with Buried Alive but can replace Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in most/all? combos too. could tutor Splinter Twin pretty easily. Idyllic Tutor for example could also pull me an Animate Dead etc, feel there could be some good build out around Combat Celebrant for combos, and just his natural talent when attacking with large A/D/D.

Early on, when I played Adarkar Valkyrie , I also played Aurelia, the Warleader for:

Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Combat Phases

Adarkar Valkyrie also gave me:

Adarkar Valkyrie + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Adarkar Valkyrie + Karmic Guide + Lightning Greaves or Dragon Tempest + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

I just found neither Adarkar Valkyrie or Aurelia, the Warleader properly ETB triggered with Kaalia of the Vast , and I was never tutoring either of them because they aren't that impactful, so ended up removing Adarkar Valkyrie and then later Aurelia, the Warleader to focus more on the primary win-con with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel .

Crucible of Worlds more inline with a classic Kaalia of the Vast , which the Infinite Combat phases + Land Destruction is part of the reason (as well to a degree the amount of hate Kaalia of the Vast receives as a commander), is why she fell to Tier 3, from Tier 2.5 previously. If I have a Grand Abolisher I don't care, but if I don't, sometimes there is surprise when they have 40 life and think they are unkillable by Kaalia of the Vast and leave themselves open and I can swoop in on T4 with the Restoration Angel horde!

It's been a long time since I needed to resort to Reveillark , either I've won, or someone else has combo'd before I really get to a point of attempting a Reveillark win. Combat Celebrant , I feel like I could also use, Entomb / Gamble , example:

Entomb > Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Mausoleum Secrets > Reanimate . With a Combat Celebrant and anything to attack with, I'm good to go. ( Entomb makes Mausoleum Secrets more valuable to me too). He also doesn't get haste from Dragon Tempest either, so that's another negative.

He can't really Turn 1 so that's kinda why I was thinking more along the lines of Hatred even without augmenting the Lifelink. Life also fuels my speed, Draw/Mana/Tutor, so not sure of the impact to my game post Hatred .

Dark Ritual , Simian Spirit Guide , Mox Diamond all increase T1 potential, but I always worry about, outside of T1 do they have much value. Dark Ritual can cast a Necropotence so it has some benefit and with other cards Buried Alive + Reanimate .

My current challenge is Faithless Looting , I think it needs to go back in, have to decide what to remove. In games where I draw my Karmic Guide or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker I'm usually like T9 because I have to actually cast them and at CMC5, it's just not realistic with the other costs ( Buried Alive CMC3 and Reanimate CMC1) thats, CMC9, never going to happen. A Faithless Looting makes it CMC5 only. Faithless Looting also has some nice synergies if I don't have an A/D/D in my hand and Kaalia of the Vast is ready to go.

I agree, when is a deck every truly complete. Ever time I play I learn something new about my deck, or a Razaketh, the Foulblooded comes a long and takes over top dog spot in my decklist, and makes Griselbrand being Griselbanned a little easier to take.

I do realize Entomb is the best tutor, and that Reanimate and Goryo's Vengeance are reanimation effects, but I'm not made of money.

Meeknomore on White/Black Tribal Knights

1 week ago

Ok, a few suggestions. As per the description you state you want graveyard shenanigans, and im assuming that's in reference to Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. I have my own variation of this deck: Knighty-knight that you could take a look at that does just tha.

Looking over your deck list, I see some tweaks that should be made if this is a direction you want to go. First off, you only have one outlet to easily get Haakon into the graveyard that I can see in Buried Alive. I'd recommend a few more to facilitate some consistency. Entomb & Final Parting both work like Buried alive and Peace of Mind , Call the Bloodline , and Markov Dreadknight are discard outlets for if you draw Haakon.

You should be getting some value from this recursion other than knights that wont go away. Door of Destinies is a great anthem effect that gets bigger with each spell. On top of this, there are spells like Nameless Inversion , Crib Swap , and Shields of Velis Vel that have changeling. Which means that they are Knights while in your graveyard. Haakon will allow you to play these spells over and over again.

Last suggestion is relating to your equipment package. I'm not against running equipment, but i'm certainly not a fan. However, there is one equipment that I am surprised is not being run more often and thats Kusari-Gama . Such a great effect that can punish an opponent when forced to block.

I hope this helped a bit.

Ripwater on Scarab God Zombie Tribal

Hey SirHerpaderp

Training Grounds is an auto include. You should not doubt about it.

Some cards I would add are:

These are just some suggestion (I know they can be a problem budgetwise).

Things i would cut:

  • Corpse Harvester In my opinion a bit too slow and a bit too expensive
  • Geth, Lord of the Vault Your commander does it better
  • Midnight Reaper Think there is better draw then this guy
  • Stitcher Geralf A bit underwhelming and he exiles the targets you want to exile with your god
  • Josu Vess, Lich Knight Way to expensive and you have Army of the Damned.
  • Dark Salvation Way to expensive
  • Dread Summons For the mana you pump into it, it's not a guarenteed hit. For that amount of mana you can cast other stuff or activate your God for more value :)
  • Vanquisher's Banner I would run a Consecrated Sphinx for this
  • Coat of Arms Would get another mana rock for more activations on your god/or another counterspell to protect him. Don't think you need the coat and often it can work against you.
  • Hopefully these tips will help you a bit and don't underestimate the power of your commander, really play him in a bit of a aggro/control version. But always keep mana open to activate him!

    multimedia on Athreos, River of Sacrifice

    2 weeks ago

    Hey, River of Sacrifice is a great deck name, nice one. Do you have the cards in the maybeboard? There's several very good cards there (Demonic, Reanimate, Will, Vindicate, Koilos, Confluence, Heath, Godless, Dreams) if you have them put them into the main deck :)

    I agree with bradtheimpaler13, Razaketh, the Foulblooded is the upgrade to consider, he's good enough to build around. Ways to get him into your graveyard and reanimate him help to get him onto the battlefield faster.

    Other cards to consider adding, most are to strengthen the aristocrat theme:


    Cards to consider cutting:

    • Forsaken Sanctuary
    • Orzhov Guildgate
    • Vivid Marsh
    • Orzhov Basilica
    • Barrier of Bones
    • Bloodmist Infiltrator
    • Carrier Thrall
    • Dread Shade
    • Gutterbones
    • Knight of the Last Breath
    • Martyred Rusalka
    • Priest of Forgotten Gods
    • Pitiless Pontiff
    • Scholar of Athreos
    • Resolute Watchdog
    • Twilight Panther
    • Necromantic Selection
    • Murder
    • Disenchant
    • Tragic Slip
    • Revival / Revenge
    • Macabre Waltz
    • Bankrupt in Blood
    • Sorin, Grim Nemesis

    Good luck with your deck.


    How_Unfortunate on Muldrotha, Dump Truck

    2 weeks ago

    Are you sure you're running enough lands/ramp? 28 lands seems pretty low for your deck (for reference, the lowest land count I've seen to date is a Food Chain Tazri build with 30 lands and their average CMC was hovering around 2). I'd recommand playing at least 36 lands and cutting them if you find yourself flooding too often after playtesting.

    You could also consider playing some of the elves (mana dorks are almost never bad) and beefing up your basic land count a bit. Since your budget is pretty high, why not run fetchlands as well? Polluted Delta , Misty Rainforest , and Verdant Catacombs are all tri-lands in your deck since you run all the shocklands.

    Since you have a reanimator package in your deck, you could also consider running Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion if you're ok with infinite combos. Entomb also goes a long way towards improving the consistency of your reanimator strategy and also just has good synergy in general with your game plan.

    *Note: You also accidentally added 2 copies of World Shaper , so I assume that was meant to be something else.

    I'd like to see lilana's spellbook with cards like Reanimate and Entomb . A bolas spellbook would be interesting as well.
