Eternal Witness Discussion

smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

4 hours ago

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.


The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

Deepstriker29 on A +1/+1 Counter A Day Keeps The Weenies Away

Following up to this:

Cold-Eyed Selkie, Blue Sun's Zenith and Bident of Thassa all slot well into the deck and provide reliable draw. Archaeomancer and Eternal Witness provide prudent access to the wide variety of noncreature spells you'll be using to turn Kraj on. Ugin's Insight is a card that I will admit I have a bit of bias for, but it still provides excellent filtering for itself in the overwhelming majority of situations. This deck would enjoy scrying away "win more" cards like Crowned Ceratok enough that I believe you could also make use of Lifecrafter's Bestiary and even Aqueous Form, especially if you're copying enemy abilities that want Kraj to attack.

And above all else, Sekki, Seasons' Guide, because memes.

miampizza on Karametra, God of Harvests

The Landfall ability indeed triggers along Kalametra's.

Some cards I would switch out include:

Abzan Kin-Guard 4 mana 3/3 lifelink is quite weak.

Aetherwind Basker Has no synergy with the deck.

Ajani's Comrade In my opinion Scavenging Ooze would be much stronger in terms of utility and reliability

Argothian Elder Land untap is useful if you're using many utility lands, which you are not. Could be replaced by any mana dorks like Elvish Mystic or Avacyn's Pilgrim

Aven Mindcensor This guy should stay if your playgroup is playing combo-heavy decks, otherwise he's useless

Blinding Souleater Little synergy with the deck

Salt Road Patrol Lacks utility

An-Havva Inn and Ancestral Tribute Very defensive cards, but Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or evenPelakka Wurm would benefit the deck more.

Angelic Blessing It looks rather weak compared to Collective Blessing orCathars' Crusade

Aether Vial A pricy card mostly used in tempo decks like Merfolks. Not very useful here since we should have plenty of ramp anyway.

Accorder's Shield Less synergy than say, Sword of the Animist

Chimeric Staff Looks like a weaker Chameleon Colossus to me.

Arboria Kinda goes against Karametra as a whole since you WANT to play creatures to pump out lands.

Absolute Grace+Absolute Law I mean, if you're only facing red and black, this should stay. Otherwise, it's an even deader draw than Great Wall.

Abzan Runemark Weaker than Rancor or many other boosting enchantments.

There might still be a few cards I find odd or out of place, but for now I'm slightly running out of time, so I'll proceed with some general must-have cards:

Sol Ring, Selesnya Signet, Command Tower, Oblivion Ring, Chord of Calling, Solemn Simulacrum, Tireless Tracker, Sun Titan, Eternal Witness.

Also wow Living Plane if you own one it's great, though if not it's quite the pricey card.

I can give you an extensive list of potentially great cards if you want me to, though tonight this is all the time I had, my apologies.

DECKMAGE101 on Don't blink, that's my job

3 days ago

Raediaent This deck may seem non budget because of the lands, but I just put those in so playtesting would be better, so no Kitchen Finks. I don't plan to be putting a lot into the graveyard so I might just side board Eternal Witness. Oath of Nissa would only be useful for ETB effect and nothing else, and I might not even get full potential out of the ETB. I will think about Elvish Visionary

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Archaeomancer's Ruse (<$50 Modern)

6 days ago

I have a bant coloured flicker deck that abuses the combination of Eternal Witness and Displace. Maybe take a look for some inspiration: Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker)

A card that is awesome with the combo is Mulldrifter. You can evoke it, then respond with ghostly flicker on mulldrifter and archaeomancer, which results in you drawing four cards and keeping the drifter. This usually is six mana, but you can reduce this with Battlefield Thaumaturge or Baral, Chief of Compliance.

Enral on Watch How I Mess With You!

1 week ago

These are cards I think might be helpful: Eternal Witness, Temporal Manipulation, Cloudstone Curio, Temur Sabertooth, Peregrine Drake, Palinchron, Cloud of Faeries, clones like Phantasmal Image, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Worldly Tutor, Vizier of the Menagerie, and Sylvan Library for a start.

A lot of your bounce theme could become real broken... you should take a look at my yidris for other cards that might help you.
