Great Whale Discussion

GhostChieftain on What are some reliable wincons ...

2 months ago

Im going to go ahead and not assume that you have anything quite yet and go through the common inf mana lines as well as infinite The Chain Veil . Sorry if these are redundant, but I feel like I shouldn't assume.

Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal + at least 3 mana worth of mana rocks= inf mana

Grim Monolith / Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth / Power Artifact = inf colorless mana

Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake / Palinchron / Great Whale = inf land untaps

Grand Architect + Pili-Pala = inf mana

High Tide + Palinchron = inf mana

High Tide + Capsize + Palinchron / Great Whale =inf land untaps

Deadeye Navigator + Deceiver Exarch + Gilded Lotus =inf mana

The Chain Veil + Teferi, Temporal Archmage = infinite pw abilities

The Chain Veil + Teferi, Temporal Archmage + Tezzeret the Seeker = inf pw abilities w/o confusing new players

The Chain Veil + Everflowing Chalice w/at least 4 counters+ Tezzeret the Seeker = inf pw abilities

High Tide + Candelabra of Tawnos + The Chain Veil + Tezzeret the Seeker = $$$inf pw abilities and inf mana

With inf mana, anything that has forced draw x or mill x wins the game.

Another reliable win con is Karn, the Great Creator and Mycosynth Lattice as long as your opponents don't have a board presence.

With inf mana Deadeye Navigator combos, you can add in Deceiver Exarch to any of them and tap down your opponents at upkeep or better yet Riftwing Cloudskate / Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all of their permanents.

You could also Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool / Omen Machine to lock them out of casting spells

Hopefully at least something here helps!

Great Whale would be a nice way to get multiple big fishies out. And since you have hearld of the secret streams you could add Deepglow Skate . Colossal Whale and jin-gitaxias might be worth looking into, and if you want to stray a bit my heart of the card is Lighthouse Chronologist . And to pump things up an extra notch perhaps a Momir Vig, Simic Visionary ??

Not a bad start but your avg cmc needs some work. 24 non-creatures is also pretty high in Animar... I'd shoot for 16 or less and replace spells with etb's.

Spellseeker , Imperial Recruiter , and Fierce Empath will all put in some work here. Spellseeker especially since it looks up Weird Harvest.

I'd drop every last mana rock you have for stuff like Wood Elves , Cloud of Faeries , Dockside Extortionist , Peregrine Drake , Great Whale , and Palinchron .

I'd whittle your high cmc Eldrazi down a little. I.e. 1 Ula, 1 Kozi, and drop the rest that cost 10+. Bounce enablers let you reuse cast triggers and etb's... consider Cloudstone Curio , Equilibrium , Dream Stalker , and Shrieking Drake .

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. I've been playing Animar for about 5 years now and the list is great for fairly competitive metas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Welcoming Feedback! My first Commander Deck. I've tweaked it some from its' first incarnation as it was far too slow. Removed the planeswalkers and some cards that seemed great, but were unlikely to add to progressing towards any win conditions.

The easiest win condition is Deadeye Navigator and any one of Peregrine Drake , Great Whale or Palinchron to play infinite cards from the deck freely with the commander. There's some ability to bring out Eldrazi early. Lots of ETB with the ability to repeat it frequently/endlessly.

discipleofgary73 Great Whale is gas, was perfect back before they printed 'rix and the commander was Taniwha . Played High Tide , Conjurer's Closet , Nim Deathmantle you mentioned and super stupid stuff like Sky Swallower + Soul Foundry + Donate + Mindslaver . Sadly Breaching Leviathan and Slinn Shady don't trigger on flickering... but I'll try fitting the whale back in :)
