Bxbx on Advice for Sen Triplets EDH?

Hi, fellow sen triplets player!

Here are some suggestions for your deck:

  • Sen Triplets draw so much hate that I'd advise you to put Winding Canyons in. This way you can flash the triplets in at the end of your opponents turn, so they don't have to survive one whole turn cause they almost never do

  • I do not play Mycosynth Lattice and Celestial Dawn because they take up two card slots. Instead I built my landbase in a way that it can produce two or three mana of any color more or less reliably in the lategame (with City of Brass, Rupture Spire, etc.)

  • Baleful Strix and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV are good creatures for esper. The arbiter reduces Sen Triplets cost by 2

  • I made the experience that Telepathy draws a lot of hate, too. People hate it to play with their hands revealed for the whole time. It creates an unpleasant game experience and often makes you a target. Instead I'd recommend Glasses of Urza. It does not make all of your opponents angry at you and additionaly it can be searched with Trinket Mage which makes your deck more consistent. And it can be searched with Tezzeret the Seeker whom you should add as well

  • my own deck is more creature focused and without combos. I really like cards like Silent-Blade Oni or Doomsday Specter there, but you probably do not run enough creatures to warrant their inclusion

  • if you're willing to go the more expensive route you should add Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor. Enlightened Tutor and Diabolic Tutor could leave for them

That's all for now. Let me know what you think!

Cool idea. I like it.

Glasses of Urza would be a good addition.

Greetings! Like the deck you have and the advice you gave me for mine. Only things I'd change are the following:

1). Psychic Strike --> Propaganda

2). Darkwater Egg --> Prophetic Prism or some other draw-mana-fixing-rock.

3). Glasses of Urza --> something else, but if you need it for the flavor win, that's all good in my book :)

Thanks again for the advice GmT! Any questions on my reasoning, let me know. Take care.

Don't stop now. I believe in you!

Telepathy could work as glasses #2

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind might be an idea. Run cards like Thoughtseize, Ostracize, Mind Twist, etc to capitalize on Lazav's ability with the knowledge you've gained from Glasses of Urza

Isperia the Inscrutable or Nebuchadnezzar seem like the most logical commanders for Glasses of Urza.

But, those commanders not withstanding, I would say anything that says "name a card", like Pithing Needle or that Phyrexian can't think of what it's called, but "the named card can't be played".

Or, any deck that you want to make sure the blue player doesn't have counter magic in hand to squash your plays.

Don't know if you even need to bother with something like this, but the first thing that popped into my head is Glasses of Urza.

Sphinx of Jwar Isle is always a nice body for a deck like this. It may not seem synergistic, but I like to run Telepathy and/or Glasses of Urza in situations like this. When you're looking into/setting up your future cards, you can't put a price on knowing what's coming from the other side of the board.

Along the lines of Imprisoned in the Moon is Song of the Dryads in green.

Throwing my support behing Scroll Rack and Sylvan Library. Rack is really good in its own right, though not as generally powerful as Library, but in your deck Scroll Rack would become a signature card.
