Gonti, Lord of Luxury

Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue


When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury Discussion

jeemo88 on Anything you can do I can do Better(Ikra +Ludevic

Suns_Champion I spent some time to review the deck, and the ramp package (save one Kodama's Reach) is actually looking pretty decent. Here is my current ramp package featuring nine total cards: Restore, Rampant Growth, Chromatic Lantern, Collective Voyage, Tempt with Discovery, Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, and Zendikar Resurgent.

Unfortunately, Birds of Paradise is a no go with this build. Creatures have to meet one of three criterea to be in this deck. They have to Clone, steal cards (Gonti, Lord of Luxury), or buff (Thunderfoot Baloth). The only exception to this rule is Biovisionary. Remember I can also clone mana dorks and artifacts (or just steal them outright if I want), as my opponents' creatures are my creatures. I also keep a lot of red, as Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist needs to be out by turn three.

As for your other recommendations, Mirage Mirror definitely tops the list. I like the idea of that amount of flexibility on a card (not to mention the ability to hide it in the lands during a board wipe). I would like to add in the flash options, like Vedalken Orrery, but that will take cutting more cards. Mimic Vat feels like a trap card, as I don't want to exile too much from graveyards. I may proxy it and see how it plays before I splurge on it.

Faerie Artisans was in the initial build of the deck, and I HATED IT. I had no control over what I did, and if the player right before me played jank, I missed out on what I actually wanted. Nothing like having an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger replaced by an Elvish Mystic.

I have made a LOT of changes since this build, but if this is the deck that I bring on the show, I'll update the deck-list then. Keep the suggestions coming!!

Ok, thanks for the feedback. I switched out some cards to put in Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Ruin Rat, and I like the way they work in the deck. Im not sure if I want to put in Dire Fleet Poisoner, but I am considering swapping something out for Cataclysmic Gearhulk.

Keep Commit / Memory over that other card.

The Aftermath lets you shut down God-Pharaoh's Gift decks in particular, and can also remove Torrential Gearhulk targets from your Oppoent's Graveyard, as well as making Angrath's ultimate next to useless.

I prefer Gonti, Lord of Luxury to Hostage Taker as they both die to a stiff breeze, but if Gonti dies you still get to cast the card it Exiled.

Also Gonti can rip a Hexproof Creature out of your Opponent's deck, or an Approach of the Second Sun if you grab it when it is in the top four cards.

So for the GP, I want to play blue-black control. here's the thing, I don't want to cheap out on the deck, but I also don't want to spend 100 $ on a creature suite. I instead replaced that with different creatures in my version. The rest of the deck mirrors the shell , though there are somethings that I am caught in a crossroads with. My sideboard seems a bit weak, any suggestions. Should I mainboard Commit / Memory over Consign / Oblivion and should I use one more Hostage Taker over Gonti, Lord of Luxury. I would love to see your opinions thank you for reading and please check out my deck http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/25-01-18-blue-black-control/ and have a nice day!

Great deck, I would also use Ruin Rat b/c it's pretty cheap but awesome just the same. Dire Fleet Poisoner is pretty fun to play, even without pirates. Also, I LOVE Gonti, Lord of Luxury, which seems to have a happy home here.

You can exile cards your opponents own with cards like Gonti, Lord of Luxury. When I cast Oblivion Sower and I have exiled some of their lands face down with gonti, can I put those face down lands into play? Also, can they be targeted by abilities like the processing mechanic from bfz?

Daedalus19876 Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

With regard to your suggestions about mass removal, Extinguish All Hope is much worse than both your suggestions but it's also like 300% cheaper for a similar effect. I also have a fair amount of spot removal to contain people till Thrax can start edicting them.

I'm still hoping for the day my Gonti, Lord of Luxury hits an opponents Rhystic Study and I get to play $10 cards in my budget deck lol.

Do you think Compulsive Research is better than Secrets of the Golden City? I rarely want to discard lands and hitting a land drop every turn is kinda like grixis's version of mana ramp. I'm still going back and forth about taking out Sign in Blood for secrets.

Duplicant I don't think is that much better than Noxious Gearhulk, life gain is relevant most times and if i need to exile something i can usually be tricky about it and get it done.

Right now i have 5 cards in the deck that cost more than $2. Phyrexian Reclamation, Noxious Gearhulk, Sol Ring, Draining Whelk and Rite of Replication. Do you think any of these cards aren't pulling the (dollar) weight?

I really appreciate your thoughts and would be interested in debating some card choices with you!!

Yeah that's fair enough to use Evolving Wilds while you are waiting to get your hands on more Fetid Pools.

With Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin you can learn when to use and not use it to look for noncreature cards.

If Approach of the Second Sun decks are rampant in your local meta, that is even more reason to take out Mastermind's Acquisition for Duress. That is the perfect card for grabbing a copy of Approach before your Opponent has a Counter spell ready to stop you.

With three copies of Duress moved out of the Sideboard you can move three copies of Gonti, Lord of Luxury in. Another excellent card to help you grab a copy of Approach.

Just so you know, if you Counter a second, or further, copy of Approach, then your Opponent does not win.
