Entreat the Dead Discussion

Entreat the Dead could be considered for a sideboard? With all the card draw, this could be some cool support

CrazyChessPlayer on Aminatou blink!!!

Sorry for responding so slowly, I have been busy as of late. Thanks so much for getting back to me:) I have removed Pilgrim's Eye, Eldrazi Displacer, and Oath of Gideon for mass worm, Hedron Archive, and Thran Dynamo. What can I cut for Dire Undercurrents, Synthetic Destiny, Entreat the Dead, and Rite of Replication I see a lot of power in them but I am not sure what to cut for them do you have any ideas? Thanks so much and happy tapping:)

Torchess on Run Of The Mill

I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)

IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void

Even if you're all into mill, some board wipes like Black Sun's Zenith or Killing Wave can really save you.

Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

if you're into zombies you can use Arcane Adaptation + Undead Alchemist + Waste Not

CRKFIEND on Rising from the dead.....for help

3 months ago

I would start by cutting some of the cards that do incremental scrying on creatures. In my testing, they have not shown their worth in the deck. Omenspeaker, Augury Owl, Suture Priest, Kor Skyfisher, Solemn Recruit all look like creatures you could do without. You should try using cards which grant draws like Cloudblazer, Mulldrifter, Oath of Jace and Demonlord Belzenlok. I'd take out both Oblivion Ring and Detention Sphere and in their places run Act of Authority, Oath of Liliana or maybe Reality Acid. I would drop Chromatic Lantern and Crucible of Worlds entirely. You have enough mana rocks without the lantern, and quite frankly your commander can act as ramp with it's -1. I would cut the Entreat the Dead as you have other reanimate outlets. I'd probably also cut a couple of cancels and pseudo-draws. a Sensei's Divining Top would be pro right here. Sorin, Grim Nemesis is an over-performer in this deck if you can net one of those as well. Ob Nixilis Reignited also works great. Both planeswalkers allow for multiple removals if Animatou is out. Good luck with your Aminatou deck. It shows a lot of promise!

FiveEightFiveBC on Aminatou's Flickering Flare

Venser, Shaper Savant could be good if you can blink it at instant speed, but I don't see any way for you to do that within reason. I'd cut it.

You aren't running any life-gain synergy, so Elixir of Immortality looks like one of your least essential cards as well.

Every planeswalker except for Venser, the Sojourner looks peripheral to your main theme of blink and ETB value. I'd cut them.

Also, I don't think you're running enough graveyard filling effects to warrant as much recursion as you have. I'd keep Unburial Rites and Entreat the Dead, and scrap everything else that specifically targets a single permanent and puts it onto the battlefield, as well as Crucible of Worlds.

Because your blinking is going to be occurring at, at best, 2 creatures per turn (I think!), Suture Priest doesn't seem likely to be doing much beyond pinging opponents for a few life each turn. It does specifically hate on token strategies, but is that really necessary? That's why you have your board wipes.

I'd add Eerie Interlude.

I hope this is at least a helpful start! If I recommended any bad cuts, make sure you can justify why I'm wrong!

gonz0pl on The Fateshifter | **PRIMER**

More testing done tonight.

New favourite unfair interaction: Aminatou, the Fateshifter on 1 loyalty using -1 ability to flicker a (basic or not) Plains with Emeria Shepherd on the field only to let Aminatou go to the yard and bring her back on 3. I loved every single spiteful gaze my opponents gave me, lol!

Swapped a few things around: Mana Vault in, Mana Crypt out. Really happy with the result of this swap. Helps me progress the board much faster, especially after flickering it for extra 3 mana. The 1 life loss is much more manageable than 3, in my opinion. No Thran Dynamo as of yet, but I'm considering it or Basalt Monolith though.

Can't express how good both Draining Whelk and Mystical Teachings are. The first one is simply unexpected and helped me get around an Akroma's Vengeance and was quickly followed by a tutor for Eldrazi Displacer to deflect further disruption. The spell has proven its worth vs. Cat Tribal Voltron getting Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce a well-equipped Nazahn to hand. Having it as the only card in my hand, at the end of my opponent's turn and chaining it into Entreat the Dead via Mystical Tutor to rebuild my board in my upkeep was sweet, too.

Unlike you, I have less colourless land sources and it wasn't enough to succesfully chain Peregrine Drake and another creature for flicker shenanigans with Eldrazi Displacer, so I removed the Halimar Depths I was playing, and added Adarkar Wastes.

Currently tinkering with Personal Tutor and Rune-Scarred Demon as even with Sorin, Grim Nemesis who keeps proving himself fantastic, I don't think I have enough draw/tutor power.

Suns_Champion on Omnipotence Comes With An Iron Grip

Hey! Thanks for the mention. I'll do my best.

An interesting mix of casual, competitive, and vorthos. Not sure how it's gonna work for ya but seem fun!

I'll start with 15 cuts for you:

  • Dack Fayden - Yeah he's got some draw and some steal, but your deck isn't really equipped to take advantage of his ultimate, meaning he'll always be sub-optimal.
  • Liliana Vess - Not a huge fan of single target discard. It'd probably be better just to run a tutor(as that's what I'd end up using her for)
  • Disrupt Decorum - as much as I love this card, it seems like this deck wants to discard/counter/kill/steal your opponents creatures, so this won't do much I'd imagine
  • Entreat the Dead - I think you have enough recursion so cut the weakest IMO
  • Last One Standing - Vorthos decision. The randomness doesn't sound like Bolas ;)
  • Thoughtseize - Again, not a fan. Who do you know who to target? What if one of the other 4 players has a god-hand and you choose wrong?
  • Oppression - Doesn't this kinda hurt you a lot? Meta call. Who casts the most spells every game? Who are yuo trying to hurt the most with this card?
  • Mind's Dilation - At 7 mana, this card is a 'value engine' when i like my 7 mana stuff to be 'game winners'
  • Painful Quandary - Your opponent will choose what is best for them and thus this card will have little effect for the 5 cmc cost.
  • Stranglehold - Meta call. How big are tutors in your meta? Extra turns? How much will this really hurt your opponents?
  • The Eldest Reborn - Also not a huge fan of the sagas. Inflexible. Uncontrollable. Some one could easily hate out the graveyards in response to chapter III.
  • Worldgorger Dragon - Maybe there is a combo I'm missing here...
  • Gem of Becoming - Very vorthos but not very good.
  • Library of Leng getting rid of the discard that hurts you also leaves this obsolete.
  • Arcane Denial - I really dislike this card personally.

Those are my thoughts on cuts, sorry if I've stepped on some toes-been out of the game for too long!

I'll be back with more help if you need it! In the mean time, if you want to return the favor and check out my newest brew, I Will Survive | Varchild EDH, I'd appreciate it!
