Glissa Sunseeker Discussion

sonnet666 on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

n0bunga, No offense to Gigi, but I have a hard time wanting to promote anything that tries to use Serra Sphinx.

I did a few playtests. The deck can go off, but it's also really limited in the first few turns by the high number of 4 and 5 mana sphinxes. It's also really luck based from the limited tutor power. (The time I went off I had Paradox in my opener.)

griffstick, CyborgAeon: One card does not a meta make. There are plenty of black stax decks in the upper tiers. There's also plenty of decks packing answers for those decks in the top tiers. Nearly every color has access to similar effect anyway (Blood Moon, Back to Basics, Choke, Winter Orb.) No card is powerful enough that we're going to demote commanders left and right because of it.

Hissp, Yeah, I think I'm probably going to put that one up. It's too polished not to have.

apavel, Started a Xiahou brew for you: Xiahou Brew. Not finished, but Him + Paradox Engine + Reanimation Spell seems like a neat way to get infinite mana. Plus you can dump your finisher in the yard. It's probably still going to be T3 though.

Razulghul, Partner commanders are weird because we're not ranking them off of every possible combination here. Can you post over on List of Partner Pairs by Tier with a short description of how your deck plays?

M8yena, That's an interesting deck, but I think it might be too many hoops to jump though for Tolsimir to move up. For comparison, I can make an elfball version of Glissa Sunseeker that blows up all artifacts as it goes off, and it would be about as good as other elfball decks, but that's not enough of an edge to promote her either. It also doesn't help that your main combo is a default 12 mana to play.

Looks like you got most of the major players minus these-

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker


Hua Tuo, Honored Physician

Yavimaya Hollow

Ive seen some list run Gisela, the Broken Blade+Bruna, the Fading Light if that's something that interest you.

Glissa Sunseeker or Kataki, War's Wage can help with artifact hate if you're worried about that.

Other good stuff

Loyal Retainers

Return to Dust or Sylvan Reclamation

Mirari's Wake

You can also search up planeswalkers now as well since they are legendary. That opens up a whole other aspect of deck building depending on what you want to do. Hope this gives you some more ideas to brew with!

Karzalar on Enter the Infinite my Dear Elves!

3 removals, like you said, is definitely way too low. Of course, doesn't have a LOT of removal, but you can consider those :

Scour from Existence, Bramblecrush, Desert Twister, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Reclaiming Vines. Land destruction is good for those who use Glacial Chasm, which is bad for your strategy. All Is Dust ONLY if you're in a pinch.

To a certain extent, you can go the route of making everything on the board an artifact with Mycosynth Lattice and all the green artifact/enchantment removal becomes effective against anything - even lands.

Also, an elf deck without Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury? BLASPHEMY! (I'm joking.)

Notable elves to consider : Glissa Sunseeker, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

Non-elf too good to pass : Eternal Witness.

Notable utility : Mirri's Guile is a free pseudo scry 3, every turn. Abundance if you do not need any other land drop OR if your absolutely need a land, you can choose... AND! If you got Sylvan Library out with it, it transforms it into a free Draw 3 every turn due to its replacement effect!

Hope this helps a bit!

Hey you're welcome glad I could help. The changes you've made look good, you've done very well to keep the deck under $60. Thanks also for the upvote at Fury.

Here's three cut options to consider to try to make room for Harbinger. Option one: cut Rishkar, Peema Renegade($1.81), Predation($.47) and Offering($.47). Option two: cut Glissa Sunseeker, Predation and Offering which is lacking $.50 of $2.50. Option three: cut both Rishkar and Glissa.

Your deck is currently at 102 cards so you need to make two cuts to make 100. Rishkar is close to $2.00 making him the best most cost effective cut to add Harbinger. I make these suggestions to add Harbinger because she has much more impact in the deck because she can tutor for any Elf. Rishkar has synergy with a few Elves, but not enough to matter and compare with what Harbinger does for the deck. Ramp is also not really a concern, you have plenty of ramp with lots of other Elves, but creature tutors are lacking which I understand is because of the low budget. Glissa is okay, but she can't compare with what Harbinger does.

Glissa Sunseeker, Glissa's Scorn, Tel-Jilad Justice. Even Nature's Claim might be good here. Oh yeah, also Myr Landshaper to turn lands into artifacts to then subsequently destroy them.

first wave of cuts: Unbridled Growth does literally nothing in mono-green, Prophetic Prism same reason, Karametra's Favor don't need. also anything that is giving you energy you dont need it. unless you have some pay off for energy there is no point in running those

things to add (this is a long list so obviously just pick things up as you can. also not all of this will fit in but this is all good stuff):Arbor Elf, Allosaurus Rider, Birchlore Rangers, Bow of Nylea, Cultivate, Devoted Druid, Drove of Elves, Druid of the Cowl, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, Elvish Archdruid, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Promenade, Elvish Vanguard, Everglove Courier, Explosive Vegetation, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Fyndhorn Elder, Gaea's Herald, Gladehart Cavalry, Glissa Sunseeker, Greatbow Doyen, Green Sun's Zenith, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heritage Druid, Harmonize, Hunting Triad, Immaculate Magistrate, Imperious Perfect, Joraga Treespeaker, Joraga Warcaller, Llanowar Elves, Llanowar Mentor, Lys Alana Bowmaster, Lys Alana Huntmaster, Masked Admirers, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Norwood Priestess, Nullmage Shepherd, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Priest of Titania, Realm Seekers, Reclamation Sage, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Tajuru Preserver, Talara's Battalion, terrastodon, Thornweald Archer, Titania's Chosen, Viridian Shaman, Wellwisher, Wildslayer Elves, Winnower Patrol, Wirewood Elf, Wren's Run Packmaster, Yeva, Nature's Herald

(takes giant breath)

yeah.. its a lot of stuff. I got a little carried away.. also this is not a budgeted list of suggestions. you will need some of the $3-10 cards to make elves a serious threat.
