Font of Mythos Discussion

BlackyMTG on Nekusar, Oprah’s Apprentice!

16 hours ago

@SynergyBuild I do have Font of Mythos, Temple Bell, Fevered Visions, Spiteful Visions, Dictate of Kruphix, Master of the Feast, Teferi's Puzzle Box, and of course Nekusar. I really like Ghirapur and I do have a copy, but I’m already letting people play with a ludicrous amount of cards and I think letting them play another land per turn would let them spit those cards out faster than I could deal with them, so unfortunately I think that’s a no. Though, I do believe I could use more ramp if you have suggestions on what to cut and which ramp spells to actually add. I appreciate the feedback and the +1!

I would recommend cutting Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, and Dictate of Kruphix. In my experience, these cards are more of a detriment to a boon. The additional damage they provide is negligible, and you are giving each opponent an opportunity to draw their answer to Nekusar, increasing the odds one of them will be able to foil your plan.

In their place, consider some of the following:

  • Lightning Greaves - easy protection for Nekusar.

  • Sigil of Sleep - turns each wheel effect into a mini-Cyclonic Rift.

  • Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind - solid card in Nekusar.

  • Curiosity - goes near-infinite with Niv-Mizzet and is a solid option on Nekusar.

  • Likewise, Helm of the Ghastlord goes near-infinite with Niv-Mizzet, and forces your opponents to discard the cards they gain when enchanted on Nekusar.

  • Phyresis ends games with Neksuar, but you might draw the ire of your playgroup for using infect. I'd be weary of using this lest no one wants to play against you.

Dictate of Kruphix and Howling Mine are both pretty cheap additions that will help add consistent damage. Font of Mythos is also great, but maybe out of price range (I feel like I shouldn't suggest anything over $5, which is my idea of a budget).

Fascination and Minds Aglow are effectively extra copies of Prosperity, with Fas being a bit worse and Minds being potentially much better.

Spiteful Visions could be fun, too, if you don't mind taking some damage yourself.

Not sure if you care, but Rat Colony and Relentless Rats overrule the singleton restriction in commander, you can indeed have any number of copies you want. Phyrexian Arena is recurring draw, as is Underworld Connections, I recommend both here as rats are generally fast and hand dumping. You may even pick up some things like Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, and Temple Bell. Yes, your opponents draw as well, however I've always found a moderately strong discard theme pairs well with rats. I like the inclusion of Gary here...excellent choice. If you could stick Eldrazi Monument that would be hilarious. Haha. Good luck, always happy to see someone else pursuing fringe tribal decks. :p My rat EDH and modern decks are on my profile if you care, super casual though, wasn't trying to be remotely competitive. Nice list. If you had a few mana dumps, the classic Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers combo is excellent. Cabal Stronghold works well with this many basics as well, as a cheaper version.

MEWLIO on Free Big Bigs With Jhoira of the Ghitu

Maybe add in Mind's Eye, Mystic Remora, Overflowing Insight (to be cast for free from Jhoira), Thought Reflection, Mind Unbound, Staff of Nin and Honden of Seeing Winds for budget card draw.

Maybe if you feel like a bit of grouphug that benefits you as well and draws cards look into: Kami of the Crescent Moon, Temple Bell, Howling Mine and Font of Mythos.

You'll also want some protection from creatures and creature attacks, maybe stuff like: Crawlspace, Silent Arbiter and Propaganda.

But every deck needs some SPICE. And you have access to allsorts of spice in Red-Blue. Dominus of Fealty, Steel Hellkite, Wild Evocation, Sunbird's Invocation, Disrupt Decorum and Swarm Intelligence.

Some good removal: Arcane Denial, Chaos Warp.

Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer

Hi kopil999, thaks for the comment.

The Locust God synergizes really well with this deck, you could run it if you want. The only problem is that it's a 6 CMC that will not win the game in the spot or bring me close to it. I think it would be better to run a "wheel" based deck with the God as it commander than trying to fit him in a Nekusar's build. We don't have cards to support creatures in this build (like a Coat of Arms i.e.)

I used to run both Seizan, Perverter of Truth and Master of the Feast alongside with cards like Font of Mythos, Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon. When nobody knows your game strategy they are nice, but with time they will turn you in a target for the rest of the table. I reckon it's better to forcefeed your opponents with extra draws only when you're going to finish them

I've never thought about trying Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, but it is an excellent card to protect our commander. The only inssue is that we really aren't THIS dependent of having Nekusar in play. Sure, it is the general and we'll always be able cast it from the CZ, but creatures are much easier to remove than enchantments like Underworld Dreams and Liliana's Caress.

Haha, I actually meant to mention Oloro to you as he seemed like something I thought you would like, I just forgot to. This will be a super slow, grindy deck. Many people will not enjoy playing against it. I'd love it, but it will be difficult to make friends as a newer player. :p

Cards like Caress and Megrim really require you to have ways to refill your opponents hand. Cards like, but not limited to Font of Mythos and Dictate of Kruphix will be your friend here. Also, look for as many recurring discard effects as you can. Look for creatures, enchantments, artifacts, and planeswalkers if at all possible. I recommend some of these:

Nezumi Shortfang

Hypnotic Specter

Siren of the Silent Song

Words of Waste

Creeping Dread

Cunning Advisor

Raiders' Wake

Cao Cao, Lord of Wei

painful quandry

Myojin of Night's Reach

Ramp is also important look for mana rocks such as Mana Vault or Thran Dynamo. Ramp on creatures can also be awesome. Talking about Nirkana Revenant and Crypt Ghast. Both of which combo exceedingly well with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

The Rack and Shrieking Affliction will be good tools to help you ping your opponents to death.

The concept seems fine, so I'm just going to ramble off a list of cards for you to consider:
