BMHKain on Double Deck Help: Mono-Red Burn ...

18 hours ago





Yep, two more things needing help. First, I wanted to make a Mono- Burn/Red Deck Wins deck. Note that cards like Arcane Lighthouse , & Detection Tower stay at default to keep targets w/o any protection. As a Burn Deck, I ponder what else to include for Burn, & cut. I also wonder if the Oversaturation of Walkers are really necessary. Should Gauntlet of Might stay? Should the Snow-Covered Mountain s even Stay? I could just ask questions Recht & Link, But I've another thing to talk about:

As for Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , I wanted to make a deck centering on one of two things I suck the most of: Politics on a Multiplayer Game Since I just started development, & the Political Part seems to look more Hatebear than Politics. I actually want some suggestions for the latter deck to ensure Political Ability; is Politics, or is Hatebears just that? Well, I'd like some suggestions anyway. What cards can help Xantcha, Sleeper Agent be more Political on a Multiplayer Board than Hatebearing away?

As for future Plans:

  1. Yarok, the Desecrated Trigger Like Mad. (Must Complete Jenara, Asura of War & Estrid, the Masked Enchantress Deck w/ cards supporting both choices for CMDRs, Omnath, Locus of Mana Anti-Meta deck, & Kruphix, God of Horizons Card Advantage/ Manipulation.)

  2. Some Grixis Deck about "The BMH Experience: Definitive Edition" (Must Finish Kykar, Wind's Fury The Red Pill Vorthos Deck.)

  3. Some Five Color deck that's 4 CMC w/ cards like Gaddock Teeg , & Lavinia, Azorius Renegade w/ a strict Max of 4 CMC, no spells, etc.

  4. (Possible CMDR 2019 Project in regards to a True Morph CMDR.)

  5. Post Throne of Eldraine Mayael the Anima Tutor-Aggro.

Thank you for your time. I hope you can help for either...

& sorry for the name of my Xantcha deck; I really do blow at making Selesnyan decks...

Have you considered Estrid, the Masked in this deck? It seems like she fits the theme really well with her ult milling you six cards and recurring all enchantments from the yard, seems like estrid would fit right in to the deck

Happycamper3611 on Kestia, Primal Surge (G/W/U Enchantress EDH)

I love the deck and I often play flavor cards over "best in slot cards".

I run my Kestia, the Cultivator deck as a Slippery Bogle deck like the ones run in modern, so it's chock full of umbras and pro creature cards like Bear Umbra and Spirit Mantle

I also run Estrid, the Masked because putting totem armour on Privileged Position just kinda completes the "don't touch me while I beat your face" theme I'm going for.

great deck and cool combo with Primal Surge !

PIayswithFlRE on Oathbreakers for the missing shards ...

1 month ago

Just kind of spitballing at this point.

I really like the idea of the Oathbreaker format, but I also like a lot of the three color combinations, and realized some (actually half) of them had no current possible oathbreakers.

Shards Wedges
  • Abzan
    • {needs one}
    • Kaya / Yanggu / Vraska / Garruk ?
  • Jeskai
    • {needs one}
    • Ral / Terferi / Narset ?
  • Sultai
    • {needs one}
    • Kiora / Ashiok / Vraska / Tezzeret ?
  • Mardu
    • {needs one}
    • Angrath / Nahiri / Sorin?
  • Temur

I started out thinking that I wanted Naya to be Huatli to lead a three-color dinosaur deck with Savage Stomp as the signature spell. But then I thought that the most interesting Mardu option would be a Sorin / Nahiri flipwalker, which got me thinking about doing it as a set with ties to the aftermath of the War of the Spark, which would probably be something like

  • Samut, Vindicated with Heroic Reinforcements
    • who returns to Amonkhet having defeated the god-pharaoh she'd previously dissented against
  • Three planeswalkers who broke from Bolas and are now hunting down those that didn't
    • Kaya with Assassin's trophy?
    • Vraska with Connive//Concoct?
    • Ral with Justice Strike or Deafening Clarion?
  • Sorin / Nahiri with Bedeck//Bedazzle?
    • since they each feel betrayed by the other and resume their conflict

No real justification for the color shifts for Kaya and Ral, though.

I think I'd personally be most interested/have more ideas for a Naya Huatli, Abzan Yanggu or Vraska, Sultai Kiora, and Jeskai Narset than what I had above; like the Sorin / Nahiri transformer, though I'm unsure of the signature spell I'd want to gear them towards.

Any good candidates I'm forgetting?

Thanks for the feedback guys. I have attempted a revised version that cuts a bit back on the complexity and potential but keeps the concept more original than most of the recent Ajani iterations.

'

cdkime I really want to avoid the "traditional Ajani pump" if I can on the plus ability. That design is lazy and not very interesting, and as you say has become a tradition for Ajani. This idea was meant as a concept that goes differently than the template that WotC have been using for Ajani ever since Ajani Vengeant .

The -1 has been cut back to its roots. It was the least original idea and just a good removal option with a fair requirement.

While I get your idea of Manifest top X library as a way of summoning aid, I find it weird that Ajani summons spirits that occasionally turns out to be something completely different. In short, I don't think Manifest fits the theme I'm going for here.

'

PhotogenicParasympathetic I find it interesting to utilize Champion as the effect. Especially since it's a Keyword mechanic from Lorwyn block where we first see Ajani.

However I feel like the interactions that the Avatar token with Soulbind sets up for makes it a lot more interesting. Although Champion does protect against removal in two fold, both against board wipes and you need 2 pieces of removal to effectively get rid of a creature. Although I can't help but feel like it's basically Estrid, the Masked 's -1 ability coupled with an Untap effect but only for creatures.

I'm conflicted on the subject and really enjoy the idea of Champion but I think I want to keep the Avatar with Soulbind. The Soulbound creature that can't attack or block, can still use abilities, which have better applications.

Anyways, I posted a revised version last in the OP. Please take a look and give feedback if you want.

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.


I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

1x Estrid, the Masked 1x Breeding Pool 1x Estrid's Invocation 1x Gift of Paradise 1x Imprisoned in the Moon 1x Mystic Remora 1x Weirding Wood 1x Swan Song 1x Swords to Plowshares 1x Kiora's Follower 1x Bramble Sovereign 2x Stasis 1x Hokori, Dust Drinker 1x Linvala, Keeper of Silence 1x Chain of Vapor 1x Spellseeker AnyX Forge of Heroes

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.


You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.

Leave a comment or message me if you're interested :)

cdkime on Ajani, Soulforger

I think you already addressed the largest problem--you are trying to do too much with the card. '

Here are my suggestions for each ability:


+2

Replace the +2 ability--which is far, far too powerful as it currently stands due to the combo potential it creates--with a traditional Ajani pump + vigilance ability. I think that will help with your wordiness some.


-1

To start, your -1 ability will not fizzle if the creature is removed, as no part of that ability is targeted (choosing a creature is not targeting it; auras only target if they are a spell, and this causes the aura to be created without being cast).

The aura will still be created, will not be able to be attached, and then will go away when state based actions are checked. I know this seems a bit pedantic, but the distinction is important--because the ability does not fizzle, you will still have an aura enter the battlefield, albeit briefly, which could implicate cards like Eidolon of Blossoms .

You'd probably want to word this like Estrid, the Masked 's -1 ability, which does target:

Create a red Aura enchantment token named Soulflame attached to target creature. The token has enchant creature and “Sacrifice Soulflame: Soulflame deals damage equal to enchanted creature’s power to any target.

I changed the name of the aura to get it down to one word, but that's still 31 words long--10 more than Estrid's. I do not think you could cut it down any further without modifying the effect.


The last ability is a bit of a mess, both requiring you to choose a creature and add up the total power of all your creatures. Rather than make this too complex, how about something like:

-6: Manifest the top X cards of your library, where X is the number of creatures you control.

I think that fits the flavour of what you are trying to do fairly well, but in a fairly concise manner.
