Fluctuator Discussion

orionreyzak on Harry961's Zur the Enchanter [Cycling]

1 week ago

I liked your video, and am glad to see a non-degenerate build of Zur. I think Toothy, Imaginary Friend is a better inclusion than Stoic Champion, and does a better job than Mulldrifter. I think that Steel of the Godhead is a good aura for Zur when everyone has flying murder machines out, or Archetype of Imagination out. Tribute Mage is a great inclusion, I use it to find my signets, Fluctuator, Blackblade Reforged (for those oloro players) , and Fellwar Stone. I'm sure a lot of these cards weren't around when you made this deck. Astral Drift speaks for itself, as does Crystalline Resonance. Escape Protocol is my back up for my backup, and may not need to be included, but I like being able to keep Fluctuator and it's the only Astral like effect that hits artifacts that I know of. I would love to see you update this deck with the new sets out.

Thank you Gristicle for pointing that out. I've been tweaking this deck a lot and there are times where I forget that there is a deck building restriction. Thassa's Oracle, Fluctuator, and Heartstone seemed like such good includes that I didn't even think about it. With that being said though I have really enjoyed the way this deck has played so far even with the restriction. The challenge building this deck has also been a nice change of pace from normal deck construction.

Phostration on Just Follow the Trail... wait wrong cycling

I originally had the two lands you mentioned, but since the addition of Fluctuator and Tectonic Reformation, I switched for the others. The idea is that if I have flucuator out, I can cycle for free, but if need be I would have tectonic for 1 mana cycle on any of my lands.

I like Djeru's Renunciation looks really good! I'd like to pit it in sideboard and switch it in against quick creature decks.

I was on the edge with Astral Drift. I know I can cycle to flicker a blocker and fizzle out the attack. Hmmm I'll have to think more on it.

Thanks so much for the suggestions!

Completely correct, I mixed up words. Protection was what I meant :)
Also it cycles for a perfect with Fluctuator.

Cards like Spellpyre Phoenix, Warden of the Eye, Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Mnemonic Wall, and Salvager of Secrets can go infinite if you have Astral Drift or Astral Slide in play alongside your Fluctuator. With a Glint-Horn Buccaneer, Drannith Stinger, or Impact Tremors in play, this lets you infinitely ping the whole table to lethal. The fact that all of those cards are already good makes them relatively easy inclusions. Maybe include Tribute Mage and Idyllic Tutor to let you fetch some of the pieces.

It's worth noting at this point that the companion rule on a creature only applies if you use it as a chosen companion. Which is to say, you begin with it outside of the deck. If it's a card in your deck, you need not follow the deck construction criteria.

Taeyla, Lavabrink Apprentice

Creature - Human Wizard

Companion - Your starting deck can't contain nonhuman creatures or instant spells

When a sorcery spell you cast deals damage, it deals one additional damage for each Wizard you control

When a sorcery spell causes you to gain one or more life, you gain one additional life for each Wizard you control

, : Draw a card for each Wizard you control


So I've been thinking about how Fluctuator is going to become really popular in commander. Make me something good with cycling.

That moment when you realize that Fluctuator is actually a $20 reprint O_O

The cycling sub-theme seems like a lot more investments than payoffs.

Gempalm Polluter feels like a nice zombie-themed include. Same for Lurching Rotbeast and Moaning Wall. Undead Gladiator also synergizes with your Bone Miser.

Running removal options like Clear/Forsake the Worldly, Expunge,Cast Out and Akroma's Vengeance might be useful. Your deck looks defensive, so maybe Choking Tethers or Djeru's Renunciation?

To bolster your control, maybe Compelling Argument or Countervailing Winds?

Scarab Feast and Rapid Decay answer decks that want you to mill them or use their own graveyards. Unearth gets low-cost zombies or Phantasmal Image back.

Maybe Abandoned Sarcophagus, while you're at it? And if you're cycling so much, throw in Fluctuator.
