Daedalus19876 on Senehem, The Locust God

1 day ago

I appreciate the addition of a name, and I might steal it ;)

This is my list: The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*. Hopefully it can give you some good ideas, and I'd love to hear your opinion :)

Have you considered Coalition Relic to let you cast Senehem on T4, Recurring Insight to draw massive numbers of cards, Murder of Crows for an additional combo, or Mystical Tutor/Gamble/Long-Term Plans as tutors?

I'm also totally stealing Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Commit / Memory from your list ;)

ticked-off-squirrel Second that, its difficult to find these cards and finding one that only hits opponents is nearly impossible ha

Daedalus19876 This like any red deck has a card advantage problem and loses steam. So Ghirapur Orrery and Avaricious Dragon were added to let me dump my hand each turn. I have not considered Gemstone Array but I am now! Storing that extra mana sounds great.

HezTheGod Homeward Path and Gamble were added. Good ideas!

D1beast I cant add the Braid. That only works on upkeep and drains right away. Dont have enough instants or creatures that would be able to use it. mastermew Does that make sense? Only works during the upkeep?

Skulloelegy Thanks! Ashling the Pilgrim was in the 99 but got switched out... Might add her back since she is a bad ass.

Thanks everyone!

Homeward Path is a must add because you run blightsteel and eldrazi titans.

Gamble is the best tutor in red. you should run it.

Expedition Map is a good tutor cantrip that can search for Homeward Path

nice deck +1

Aethos on The Locusts are Coming... (cEDH)

4 days ago

I just try to throw in some stuff, maybe you can use some of it.

Well known combos which might be nice here:
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact = infinite colourless mana.
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + Sol Ring/Mana Vault/Mana Crypt = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Candelabra of Tawnos/Palinchron = infinite coloured mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Izzet Signet/Mox Opal/Fellwar Stone/Gilded Lotus = infinite coloured mana.
Palinchron + Phantasmal Image = infinite coloured mana.Candelabra of Tawnos + High Tide or similar = good mana rock.
Future Sight + Helm of Awakening + Sensei's Divining Top = draw.
Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter = a lot of infinite stuff possible.

I'd probably play Preordain, Gitaxian Probe, Impulse and Fact or Fiction. Maybe also Gush and certainly Frantic Search. These help you go through your pile quicker, which is quite important, since you don't have access to a lot of the good black tutors. Gamble and Intuition might be good, tutors are important for in cEDH. Turnabout seems good. I think most red cEDH decks play Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast. Chain of Vapor probably belongs here and also Hurkyl's Recall. I think Dack Fayden belongs in every commander deck. Past in Flames. Baral, Chief of Compliance.

I'd streamline the deck towards fast combo (similar to a storm deck) and remove the stax elements. Usually if you try to be between fast combo and stax you don't do either right. I like Mind Stone, but for cEDH it's probably too slow. Library of Leng doesn't do enough in this deck I think.

JaceTheSwagSculptor on Uril's Revenge

4 days ago

I just included all the possible relevant tutors for the deck aside from Heliod's Pilgrim because there are no ETB's in my list and Summoner's Pact because it's cmc is too high. The only tutor you should be missing is Gamble, but I wouldn't recommend including it.

I didn't really use hypergeometric distribution for anything other than ramp. A lot of my inclusions are just based upon testing alone. For example, at one point I had both Sram and Spiritdancer but later realized that I only had 19 aura's. I came to the conclusion that I didn't want two of an effect that only triggers ~20% of the time and as you can tell Sram's removal has worked out well for me.

Even with all of our hard work optimizing your list, we are just brainstorming concepts and you will still probably realize some things you don't like once you start playing the deck more.

As a side note, if you actually want to link my profile in the update put double square brackets around my name.

Yeah sorry I dont have a wants list my wants are mostly just foils and not many people have foils lol. But here are some things I am looking for, foils for this deck , fnm foil Lingering Souls, foil Path to Exile, not ema Gamble, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, unglued basics (particularly forest plains and swamp). I am also interested in your dissension Ghost Quarter and Sheltered Thicket to start.

Bruxo on Initial D(epala): Aether Stage

+1 for the name + music.
Cards with Metalcraft might be a good addition in your deck, since you have plenty of artifacts. I would also suggest the Artifact Lands from Mirrodin + some tutors like Gamble or Enlightened Tutor.
I also expect that in each of your turns you play a different eurobeat song ;)

PookandPie on If you could run one ...

I'd basically want the same cards in each deck if color options opened.

In green, it'd be Beast Within or a creature tutor, depending upon deck. Chainer would want a Beast Within for artifact/enchantment removal at instant speed, while Kemba would really like to get Stoneforge Mystic more consistently (doesn't matter if it would be Birthing Pod, Eldritch Evolution, etc., just a tutor that doesn't just grab a green creature).

For blue, it'd be Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, etc.. Or Mystical Tutor/Cyclonic Rift, depending upon the deck (Kemba wouldn't have much use for Mystical Tutor, but it'd certainly love a Rhystic Study, for example).

For black, Demonic Tutor. Necropotence would be nice, but DTutor is easier to cast in a splash.

For white, it's Swords to Plowshares or Enlightened Tutor, depending upon deck. Arcum would love Enlightened Tutor, for example, while most others would enjoy a Swords.

For red, it'd be Gamble, Vandalblast or Winds of Change, depending upon deck. Chainer would prefer Vandalblast, Ghave would enjoy Gamble, and my wife's Elves would probably love Winds of Change.
