Ethereal Usher Discussion

I just came up with a pretty janky Tooth and Nail combo that works with Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle untapped, 6 other lands - or even fewer if you have mana doublers, and one additional mana (so 9 altogether). However, it requires at least 3 blue mana sources in your lands (including arixmethes) and at least 3 green ones (also including him). So no additional mana but T&N's casting cost is required (in contrast to the Palinchron/Eternal Witness combo).

Altogether, you will need to "build around" this combo a bit, but I'll try it myself when I switch from Vorel of the Hull Clade to Arixmethes.

JKRice The issue I see with Idyllic Tutor is the same one I saw with Ethereal Usher ; just too slow and clunky to warrant a spot. The main way you find Hive Mind game 1 is to mulligan till you have it utilizing the London Mulligan + Serum Powder .

I can see putting big mana creatures in the main, I am unsure as to what I would want to take out for them though. I have the ones I thought would be the best in the sideboard for matchups like UW Control or Jund where the combo can be countered or taken apart with a timely discard spell.

Also, I forgot to mention this, but Ethereal Usher is especially important since it fetches either half of the Guile / Dovescape combo.

No trouble. I never considered that interaction! I've never been big on WU, but maybe I should look into a Taigam deck. Ethereal Usher , Enlightened Tutor , and Idyllic Tutor would probably be the next upgrades I would go for, then. Seaside Haven , Soulcatchers' Aerie , and Airborne Aid could also be good, depending on how reliably you get out Dovescape.

Also, I see Helm and Trike combo at a glance. Since both of those have pieces costing the same, you can use Clutch of the Undercity , Dimir House Guard , Ethereal Usher , and Netherborn Phalanx for additional tutors. Also, Walking Ballista is a second copy of Trike.

Have you considered Kaho, Minamo Historian. Brago, King Eternal + Kaho, Minamo Historian(fetching Nexus of Fate) + 7 mana each turn = infinite turns if you can dodge interaction. Not to mention it is fine utility card that isn't that bad on it's own and you can reset her with brago if you need to.

FYI Walk the Aeons is another extra turn spell that doesn't exile and is reasonably cheap. I'm also running Ethereal Usher as a kind of 9CMC Walk the Aeons that can also get other important cards if need be.

Also correct me if I'm wrong but I'm not sure the combos using Felidar Guardian and Leonin Relic-Warder actually work. That is unless you're just saying they're combos in the sense that they are strong interactions that don't actually go infinite.

I like deck even as is. However I'm a fan of transmute so if Diabolic Tutor is solely for finding Hive Mind I'd suggest replacing it with Ethereal Usher to reduce the cost of the tutoring to and get rid of black as a color altogether.

+1 :)
