Eternal Witness Discussion

multimedia on Tatyova v1

2 hours ago

Hey, very good first Commander deck :)

Because of all the great Fetch lands you have consider a Breeding Pool ? Flooded Grove is another good ETB untapped Simic dual land. Hinterland Harbor works well with lot of basic Forests and Islands. Can cut Simic Guildgate, Thornwood Falls and Woodland Stream for these three better dual lands.

Other card upgrades to consider:

More expensive cards to consider:

If you would like I offer more help. Good luck with your deck.


multimedia on Advice for dealing with settle ...

1 day ago

Genesis Wave , Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and Riftsweeper are more synergistic budget cards to play in an Elf deck when against Settle. They won't stop Settle, but they will help to recover from it. Wave and Recruiter are ways to use the extra mana you will get from lands that you get after a Settle to get more Elves/creatures/permanents. Riftsweeper is an Elf and she can remove a creature who was exiled by Settle from the exile zone and put it back into your library.

Eternal Witness and Regrowth are good cards that can recur Overwhelming Stampede so you can cast it again when you have recovered from Settle. Evolutionary Leap and Greater Good are ways to sac your creatures so they will not be exiled. Leap costs one mana per creature to sac and Greater is a free sac, but requires discarding cards after drawing. It's easier to recur Elves when they go to the graveyard rather than being exiled.

Saiyan-Iskandar on Emmara, Soul of Salvation!

2 days ago

andriygoblin I perhaps haven't explained the "combo" well enough, you must forgive me I am not very good at this sort of thing. :/
I mean't to say that by using Eternal Witness and Eerie Interlude you can perpetually return Eerie Interlude which will protect your board from whips providing you have at least 3 mana open of course XD Sorry for the shoddy explanation. But thank you for the advice and I am always open for more ideas! I like being able to re-use all my cards and bring them back from the graveyard as well if you have any advice?

If you are worried about board wipes, you should definitely include Teferi's Protection . Also if you can explain to me how Eerie Interlude + Eternal Witness combo works to be unlimited if at the end step it resolves and you will need to pay mana again to cast Eerie Interlude . Unless you have unlimited mana you won't have unlimited ETB effect, and you would also have to wait till the next end step for effect to take place again, since the card states at the beginning of the next end step, whereas when the Eternal Witness comes in as the result of effect it's no longer beginning of the end step.

semsandberg on Muldrotha: Needs help

2 days ago

Hey bobobo77,

Muldrotha is an awesome commander and as I see you have a great base here. I have some suggestions for you. First I would add some mana-dorks like: Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Boreal Druid , Elves of Deep Shadow or Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves . With Muldrotha often it works like Meren of Clan Nel Toth , you need a Grave Pact , Dictate of Erebos and a Butcher of Malakir . Than you can use all the AristocraticStuff like Spore Frog , Fauna Shaman , Mulldrifter , Shriekmaw , Fleshbag Marauder , Plaguecrafter , Eternal Witness and I highly recommend you The Gitrog Monster .

That's some thoughts. If you like, check out my Sidisi the Land reanimator-deck.

hkhssweiss on Magic Roons, Laddie (Optimized)

3 days ago

Yo Chandra585, first thing that I kind of noticed is that your running 32 lands. For a avg. CMC curve of 3.53, that is fairly low. In inclusion of it as well, you aren't running much ramp effects to match the curve as well. Since you want a mix of both flicker effects, ETB value, as well as good stuff value, I would consider adding in Brago, King Eternal . Single use burst plays aren't formidable enough in EDH unless it's a mass one, so I would cut out all the single target flicker cards with mass one like Ghostway . In addition, ramp creature or card advantage creatures should be considered like:

This would help you get more mana, as Roon can be quite an mana intensive deck. With that being said, Peregrine Drake is a great enabler to allow you have open mana at all times. Cloud of Faeries as well, but that's only if you have access to broken type of lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Gaea's Cradle .

I would also consider including Wargate (bias on this amazing card!) as well as Chord of Calling , as it has awesome interaction with Eternal Witness or Archaeomancer in allowing you pull any creatures from your deck, provided you have the mana for it! Wargate does double duty in pulling any permanents to the battlefield!

For protection package as well there are cards like Heroic Intervention and Faith's Reward as your oh shit button in the event where you need to protect everything. That goes along for Teferi's Protection as well. Being in Bant colors gives you a plethora of options and there are much things you can actually do. I would also consider more consistent blinking effects like Conjurer's Closet since you are in a semi-competitive meta as it is a threat but only a threat depending on what you have on the field. Same reasoning for Venser, the Sojourner , he also acts as triple duty in making additional ETB/LTB effects, if you add in Brago, making him unblockable, as well as win condition if he ults!

Along side that, Heartstone should become Training Grounds as reducing to is strictly better, and it makes Eldrazi Displacer cost only one colorless mana to blink which can get ridiculous value! Cards like Panharmonicon , Strionic Resonator , Illusionist's Bracers are a bit too finicky and are win-more type of cards. You can cut them out for efficiency, same with other creatures you run like Sigarda unless you are running her due to meta calls.

TL:DR - Add in some more lands, cut the big clunky win-more cards, use efficient spells to streamline deck. Wargate is a beast of a card and should definitely be included. Bant has so many choices so it depends on the level you want to build.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any more help, I like helping people deck tune their decks!

AkrosTheClear on Enchantment Recursion

4 days ago

One of my favorite things to do in EDH is slam big powerful enchantments onto the battlefield, some of my favorites being Grave Pact , Smothering Tithe , Eye of the Storm , and Phyrexian Arena . The problem is that enchantment removal is cheap and plentiful while enchantment recursion is, well... not. Am I wrong when I say that there is a woeful lack of enchantment recursion in MTG in general? Other than general recursion like Eternal Witness and Regrowth there are only 3 cards I know of that relate specifically to enchantments: Tragic Poet , Replenish , and Open the Vaults (which affects everyone, so screw that).

So my question is are there any enchantment recursion cards I missed? Or does Wizards just need to make a new archetype of card?

Thank you for any and all input.

GrinningGrebe on Sek'Kuar's Shaman Shenanigans

4 days ago

Cool idea! Shaman is a tribe with a lot of interesting cards. You got some here, but I think there are some easy includes as Rage Forger , Sakura-Tribe Elder and Eternal Witness .
There is room to choices, so I would focus more on the whole Shaman thing and leave out the more generic "sacrifice themed" stuff.

By the way, keep it on!
