Entrancing Melody Discussion

fettywapmtg on Favorable Pirates ($30 Budget Tempo)

2 weeks ago

You ever consider stretching the mana curve out a bit? I find jump-start cards, particularly Chemister's Insight and Quasiduplicate, giving you that option to trade lands for a recast may add a bit of flexibility here. Dream Eater may fit in nicely here, and while it's current value doesn't fit your budget, it's fair to consider it's small body may dissuade people from playing it, and you may be able to pick one up for $1 or $2.

I mostly mention these cards because I've found them very effective in my new Monoblue list, which thus far has punked literally every single match-up I've been put up against including: RU Wizards, GW tokens, Knights, Golgari Midrange, Flame of Keld, Boros, and even Tefrei control. GB Steel Leaf Stompy looks like the deck to watch out for though, so hopefully I get to try that match-up soon. Entrancing Melody looks good against Pelt Collector though, I will say that.

He's that list if you want to check it out:

Stelmeiria on Mono-Blue Tempo

I think you have an excess card draw, would take out a couple of Opts or Chart a Course and add another Curious Obsession, Dive Down and/or Mist-Cloaked Herald.

I also think your Sideboard is not well made, seems like you wanted to strap the cards you wanted inside the deck in there. think about what cards you want in an aggro matchup and a control matchup, you will see then that maybe only the Negates are right and maybe the Spell Pierces, which I would at least change for Syncopates. I would change the creature cards in the sideboard for some combination of Diamond Mare, Sleep, Deep Freeze or Entrancing Melody

This deck is bursting with flavour and I love it. You might also want to consider Vortex Elemental as a 1 drop and good defence. I find that people leave me alone for a while when Charybdis (my nickname for it because it bears resemblance to the mythical whirlpool monster) is on the field. Entrancing Melody refers to Sirens, which are also creatures of the deep in Greek mythology. Plus give a nod to mermaids as well. Serpent of the Endless Sea is not only flavour but is an arguable adaptation of Jormungandr. Thassa's Ire and Thassa's Devourer link to the sea god you are playing already so ... I thought these might fit in too. Deep-Sea Terror and Jokulmorder might also be worthy of consideration. I hope these have helped a little!

driule on MONO BLUE - Fly over!

Murphy77 I've played a lot with this deck, so I completely disagree about Walking Ballista - this is must have in this deck, reasons are:

  • great combo with Warkite Marauder;
  • about 1/4 games are won by finishing opponent lifes with it;
  • great mana sinker.

Nimble Obstructionist is used in sideboard, because it is relatively mana expensive card.

3x Favorable Winds would be way too much (tried in practice), it slows down deck, especially against many removals it is not worth to play it all (and many removals against me is usually the case)

Curious Obsession is vulnerable, I agree with that, but I gamble with it and many times it helped me a lot. I try to defend that creature with Siren Stormtamer and dive down

I consider main deck competetive enough, but sideboard must be improved with Sentinel Totem, Entrancing Melody and Admiral's Order

I like Entrancing Melody rather than Tishana, Voice of Thunder. Tishana usually sits in my hand and doesn't do enough when it hits the board, as my opponent has usually been whittling away at my creatures. Plus, taking control of a dinosaur at the right moment is sweet - especially a Ghalta, Primal Hunger.

ANemoAcids on Wizardy draw with some infinite combos

Let's get you some wincons, and fix that landbase.

First: Landbase. Basic stuff, manarocks, and better land cards, and a touch of fetchlands to get us rocking and rolling. Then, guess what, you're playing green. Congrats, you get the luxury of a vast array of tasty morsels called ramp spells, so we'll take advantage of that.

-3x Island, +Simic Growth Chamber, +Yavimaya Coast, +Bant Panorama

-2 Forest, +Myriad Landscape, +Command Tower

-Beneath the Sands + Traverse the Outlands (great way to filter land out of the deck if you get a big hand size power/toughness creature)

-Zndrsplt's Judgment +Thran Dynamo

-Blink of an Eye + Gilded Lotus

-Evacuation +Simic Signet

-Displace +Cultivate

-Mystic Confluence, + Kodama's Reach

-Time of Ice, + Nissa's Pilgrimage

-Entrancing Melody + Explosive Vegetation

Next, let's look at capitalizing on your commander's strengths: Card draw. We'll add in card draw, and some hand size manipulation to help manage it, along with some ways to make use of all that mana you gain and cards you draw.

-Watertrap Weaver, + Minds Aglow

-Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter + Mind Spring

-Academy Journeymage + Braingeyser

-Academy Elite + Pull from Tomorrow

-True-Name Nemesis + Venser's Journal

-Genesis Hydra + Thought Vessel

- Storm Sculptor + Tishana, Voice of Thunder

-Riddleform +Spellbook

-Divination +Harmonize

-Fleet Swallower +Awakening

Now for some wincons:

-Devastation Tide +Goblin Cannon (with your upcoming infinite mana/card draw combos, draw into this, then ping everyone for infinite damage and win, the ability stacks as many times as you pay the mana for it, before sacrificing itself).

-Saheeli's Artistry +Empyrial Plate (slap that on your commander, give it flying with caller of gales, free commander damage kill)

-Grunn, the Lonely King, + Laboratory Maniac

-Index + Time Warp

-Broken Bond, + Beacon of Tomorrows

-Opt +Psychosis Crawler

-Jace's Ingenuity +Sturmgeist

-Spelltwine. - River's Rebuke

+Isochron Scepter, +Dramatic Reversal (infinite mana combo with some mana rocks)

-Fumble +Illusionist's Bracers

-Ghostly Flicker +Aphetto Alchemist (equip bracers to alphetto, tap to untap it and target manarock or kydele for aother infinite mana combo, once you have infinite combos going, you can take multiple turns, draw out your whole deck with psychosis or lab maniac or tishana, or empyrial plate, etc)

Other infinite combos you can look for are Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle equipped to kydele if she's drawn enough cards. The possibilities are vast, just a matter of finding yourself a bit of room for those cards, which shouldn't be too hard. However I'm also aware of budgets, I know I've suggested a LOT of changes, many that you might need to purchase, and while the individual cards aren't too pricey, collectively it's a lot once you look at all the changes. But if you're personally looking to take your deck to the next level, I'll add some more blingy suggestions at the end of this comment.

Last couple of swaps to make:

-Overwhelming Denial +Counterspell (cheaper, better counterspell)

-AEtherspouts +Swan Song

The bling: Staff of Domination (more kydele comboing)

Patron Wizard

Seedborn Muse

Minamo, School at Water's Edge

Boseiju, Who Shelters All

Cyclonic Rift

Palinchron

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger

Tooth and Nail

other cards to consider would be a touch more cantrips and counterspells? Depends on local meta, how often you need to stop people from preventing your comboing off: Pact of Negation Muddle the Mixtures Brainstorm Mystical Tutor

LittleBlueHero on Another Mono-Green Stompy Deck

This is exactly what I was thinking when I saw Traxos, Scourge of Kroog as well.

I have been running a mono green stompy since ixalan dropped and one of my biggest problems seemed to come from control magic. A lot of folks in my meta were running Entrancing Melody and such and losing my Ripjaw Raptor and Crocodile of the Crossing was usually too much for me to deal with since they would then trade with my creatures and become a huge 2 for 1 for my opponents (3 for 1 in the case of ripjaw).

Putting in traxos instead might give them a huge body, but at least my deck is built to activate it... theirs might not be :)

PlaneswalkerDelia on Wizardy Woo? Times Two? I Choose You!

Hey! Cool deck you got here! First thing I notice is you need just a little bit more consistency. Opt is very good to help you with this, so you've got that covered. Personally, I'd drop Firefist Adept for more Opts. Although Naban will make the Adept more useful, you're not running many creatures, and coupled with that, you only have two of them, so the odds you'll get to draw him are particularly low. Additionally, Divination isn't too helpful in my opinion. Yes, you draw cards off of it, but it doesn't do much to advance your board state, for this reason Chart A Course is much better as it's less prohibitive, and leaves more mana open for your opponent's turn. Entrancing Melody is better off as a sideboard card IMO, in decks with smaller (or no) creatures it won't be very impactful. By removing these cards you can free up space for some more playsets of non-legendary creatures, which will make you a lot more consistent with your draws. I'd also see about adding in some Sulfur Falls to make your land base more diverse.Academy Journeymage is worth considering, as you'll often be able to cast if for cheap, and Naban will let you bounce two creatures. That's some value. One last thing I'd consider is Magma Spray for dealing with The Scarab God and Rekindling Phoenix which are two very big threats in standard right now. All in all, cool deck, I love seeing Wizards!
