Aftertherevolution on Database of card image descriptions?

2 weeks ago

There are many, many ways to search for cards. ie.

But I wish there was one that had a field with a description of the images. I get that it would be very subjective and difficult to boot, but has anyone attempted this? Particularly useful when building thematic/tribal decks.

I'm imagining a crowd sourced type DB that might have a field for image descriptor tags. For example, Genesis might have: centaur, dragonfly, insect, forest, rebirth, green goo, calm

Wishful thinking maybe?

No love for Harmonize, Sylvan Library, Life's Legacy or Shamanic Revelation yet so I'll throw those out there. Also Craterhoof Behemoth fits right in, he's being reprinted soon so wait to buy him though. Genesis and Basking Rootwalla could work well here too possibly. Anyways good luck and never sell allllll your cards!

Here's some idea's you may not have considered. Obviously your meta-game is different than mine, but in my multi-player commander games, we get a lot of board wipes. As a result, I tend to ignore 'number of creatures you control' effects because they don't help much when you don't have any. Mana Echoes is cute but I think there are better uses of that card slot.

Genesis, and Loaming Shaman can help with graveyard recursion.

Bower Passage and Spidersilk Armor can help deal with flying creatures.

AEther Sting, Berserkers' Onslaught, Fervor, Gruul War Chant are all helpful combat spells.

Hand to Hand and Heat of Battle fit your theme and can work in your favor.

What about replacing the Alpha Brawl with Arena? The Alpha Brawl is a one-shot but you can use the Arena repeatedly.

I hope you like these suggestions. Good luck.

Looks pretty good! Here are a couple suggestions.

ramp/color fixing:

Sol Ring in particular is insanely powerful as being able to cast 4mana spells turn 2 puts you pretty far ahead. Ramp in general also halps cast your top end. Chromatic Lantern makes sure you have al three colors.

Board wipes: Sometimes the game gets out of hand and you just need a reset button to take care of the scary things your opponents are doing. If damnation is out of your budget, Crux of Fate is a fine substitute but i'd add in atleast a few of those effects. Living Death is also good in graveyard decks.

Removal: I can guarantee that most opponents are going to be playing creatures you don't want to stick around. I'd put in a few more spells to pick off a specific creature. On the same note, i'd run a few more cards that can deal with non creature spells. Beast Within is good as it hits almost anything you need it to.

Reanimate effects: Right now reanimate is your only reanimate spell that happens immediately. Here are a few others: Victimize, Phyrexian Delver, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Dread Return

Infinite loops:

Not sure how you feel about infinite combos but personally i like to have a couple. The Gitrog Monster already in the deck goes infinite with Dakmor Salvage (discard salvage to having above 7 cards in hand, gitrog trigggers, you choose to dredge instead of drawing, now you have 8 cards in hand so you discard due to hand size again..... works even better if you have Laboratory Maniac but it still allows you to put as much of your library into your graveyard as you want.

Deadeye Navigator is a good card by itself (really gross if you pair it with Acidic Slime). If you pair it with Peregrine Drake you get infinite mana. Infinite mana+Tasigur, the Golden Fang means you get every single nonland card in your library in your hand by activating an infinite amount of times. if one of those cards is Blue Sun's Zenith....

Oh i'd also try to get a copy of Genesis

Sorry, this ended up being longer than i expected but I hope it helps!

That might be a good idea, Emzed. In addition to the two ways you mentioned, I could also sac it to High Market or Miren, the Moaning Well. Not the reason any of those cards are in the deck, but yeah...

Something to think about, but I'll have to order a Genesis, I don't currently have one.

With Hermit Druid in the deck, including a card like Genesis that gives you value from a full graveyard becomes more attractive. It's yet another slow card advantage engine, so not really a completely new dimension for your deck, but it might be quite good at grinding through a long game with lots of removal flying around. You can also discard Genesis to Survival of the Fittest or Greater Good, so there is a little redundancy of enablers.

Sensei's Divining Top can set up your mills.Curse of the Bloody Tome gives you mills. Nephalia Drownyard. Psychic Spiral could become a wincon. I have 50 cards in my graveyard. You just drew a bunch and now your library is gone. Dreamborn Muse mainly the self mill at your upkeep. Genesis hand recusrion.
