Glistening Oil Discussion

Blo on Draw for the Razer

4 days ago

If combos float your boat: Mind Over Matter + Temple Bell and a random eldrazi in your deck wins on the spot, with or without your general out.
I also think both are fine additions to your deck on their own. You should probably also include Azami, Lady of Scrolls for the same combo with your general out.

Anvil of Bogardan is a cool card.
Barbed Shocker helps your gameplan I think, but might not always get through.
I think you should play Blue Sun's Zenith. It can get you back into the game in a pinch and cause an opponent to be bealt the last damage needed.

Not sure what Glistening Oil here does, but it's a pet card of mine so thanks for that :DDeck looks fun to pilot!

goblinguiderevealpls on Nekusar's Wheels of Death

2 weeks ago

i would start by cutting both jace, forced fruition, spiteful visions, howling mine, dictate of kruphix all other draw step/upkeep stacking or self-damaging cards

curiosity is a good card on nekusar, but without him its a dead card, so its not really worth it imo cuz nekusar doesnt play like niv mizzet or locust god, in that he is much more discard than those two, plus, if you want to be mean, Glistening Oil does the job of both curiosity and Gratuitous Violence for 2 mana

temple bell goes infinite with Mind over matter but without MoM bell is just another howling mine feed, and with mom you can easily combo off similar to dream halls by untapping lands or mana rocks then casting a wheel and untapping more with unwanted cards

Kami, niv mizzet, and jace's archivist are too slow, since they dont have haste theyre often killed before you can tap them

nekusar is best in that he can kill a whole table with a Windfall so single target or cards like Blue Sun's Zenith or Terminate arent that great in edh when you could be casting a Memory or Evacuation

also, memory jar is amazing here because you can copy it with stuff like Mizzium Transreliquat, Mirage Mirror Copy Artifact and Sculpting Steel plus metamorph and impersonator to draw 7, discard them all to dream halls or mind over matter, then activate the second "jar" to exile the 7 cards in the original hand, which you also discard to avoid exile, this combined with stuff like Bojuka Bog rakdos charm or Leyline of the Void makes your opponent benefit far less from Memory/Time Spiral type cards while you keep getting your cards back while slowly decking them

hope that helps!

umtebink on Ramos: The Charming

I'd say the weakest cards in the current list are definitely Index, Reason / Believe, Burst of Strength (too narrow, not enough impact), and all the "Bringer" creatures (they don't give 5 counters when cast for the alternative cost, same as Fist of Suns.

Crystallization and Sangrite Backlash are both really good in Charm Ramos due to the 3 colors for 2 mana situation, and Sangrite Backlash on its own gives Ramos +6 attack. For damage wincons Glistening Oil and Grafted Exoskeleton can be quite good, it's very easy to get Ramos to 10+ power and one-shot people.

I think Decimate and Anguished Unmaking are both strong considerations, only 2 colors a piece but their effects are really efficient. And while weak on its own Transguild Courier is the cheapest 5-color creature I believe, it almost acts like a ritual card in the deck rather than a creature.

Eshmasesh on the infect god

Maybe Phyresis and Glistening Oil. You have a ton of infect creatures already so I don't think you need them.

Atmosbear on Ramos the Voltron Spellslinger

I would try and put Glistening Oil in over Phyresis the drawback isn't much to worry about when your main target generates +1+1 counters by playing magic and it is reusable similar to Rancor.

Just like Kalemne, I'm ready to straight murder people with a Voltron commander that's immediately disregarded as boring. Some cards I've thrown into mine so far include

Dega Sanctuary, Glistening Oil , Chandra's Ignition, Illusionist's Bracers, Rings of Brighthearth, Wall of Reverence and Hatred

I like what you've done so far, more Vampire tribal than just voltron but all the lifelink seems like it will make her much easier to cast.

goblinguiderevealpls on Deckusar, the Handrazer

2 months ago

I run half of those in my budgetless list, the other half i used to run back when he first got printed and i was on a budget, just speaking from experience howling mine effects often prove to be unproductive cuz your opponents just kill nekusar and get free draws to counterspell or murder him again, oh and i forgot Mindmoil
