Greed Discussion

PlutoniumWedding on Neheb, the Worthy

1 week ago

Just in case you weren't aware, you're not allowed to run Behind the Scenes according to official EDH rules since it has white in its colour identity.

Among recent-ish cards that your local store is reasonably likely to have, I would recommend Neheb, the Eternal for both theme and great ramp. Having playtested against the deck it also feels like it could use more card draw, and I would recommend Erebos, God of the Dead or Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or any other Greed -variant they might have in.

Speaking of, Whip of Erebos could help you gain back that life you paid and works great with your Sanguine Bond and Epicure of Blood .

Hazoret's Monument can ramp early and get rid of excess lands for more gas later. Pseudo-draw from Outpost Siege or Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip would probably also do very well.

Angrath's Marauders are a one-sided damage doubler with a flavour connection to Angrath.

Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic and Obelisk of Urd are tribal staples and can help your minotaurs get big enough to attack through small or medium creatures. Stoneforge Masterwork is also solid. Door of Destinies and Shared Animosity are the big boys of tribal buffs, but since they're a bit older they can be harder to find, and the latter is quite expensive as well.

While a bit more pricey, Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (and the very expensive Gauntlet of Might ) are powerful in both boosting your mana and your creatures. Crypt Ghast only does one of the two, but costs a bit less and is slightly easier to find. (Note that the symbol is in reminder text and does not give the card a white colour identity).

I hope I've given you some ideas!

Your comment about Well of Lost Dreams got me thinking. This was a hold over from when this deck was $100 budget deck and I never really considered a more efficient draw engine. Back then I also ran Greed but it got replaced when Bolas's Citadel came out. I have changed the Well out for Necropotence . Thanks for the questions!

Evolution Sage is another great proliferate outlet for you.

You have some cards in here that I don't think really fit. Radiant Destiny doesn't really seem to be worthy of a slot. Intangible Virtue is better, but I'm not sure how important the vigilance aspect of it is for you. Aether Vial , Thran Temporal Gateway , and Quicksilver Amulet I think could be replaced by other cards that better fit what the deck wants to do. If you really want the effect, Elvish Piper does it better. I think I'd cut Leyline of Sanctity . The new Leyline of Abundance fits what you want to do better. If you still want the Leyline of Sanctity effect, Shalai, Voice of Plenty does it better for your deck, in my opinion.

Phyrexian Vault could be replaced with something better and repeatable, like Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or Greed . I'd also consider running cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to take advantage of sacrificing your creatures.

And here's some fun tech: Plaguemaw Beast + Thornbite Staff .

Hope this helps, and enjoy your Commander experience!

DemonDragonJ on Yawgmoth, Master Eugenicist

Now that WotC has finally printed a card of Yawgmoth himself, I feel that I can do the same; their card depicts him at the beginning of his career, when he was still a human, so my card depicts him later in his life.

Yawgmoth, Master Eugenicist Show

This card depicts Yawgmoth when he was still human, but when he was in a position of power and authority in the Thran empire. At that time, he was the chief physician of the empire, tasked with curing the citizens of a virulent disease that was afflicting the, but, in actuality, he was the one who was infecting them, hoping to cull the weak from the population and breed super-soldiers to conquer Dominaria.

As for the card itself, I felt that he, as with Urza, acquired more colors as time passed, so I made him black and white, since, out of all the two-color combinations in this game, that combination is the most associated with pride, arrogance, and nobility (although black/white and black/blue are close behind). As such, he has protection from the other three colors (a combination that has never been used, before), to represent how he is supremely confident in himself and that only a being who is similar to him (i.e., in the same colors as him) could harm him.

Each of his abilities represents his experiments, whether they are culling the weak or experimenting on subjects. The mono-black ability is a reference to both Greed and Yawgmoth's Bargain , but more expensive than either, since it would be too powerful otherwise. The mono-white ability is there simply because I wanted an equal distribution of colors in his abilities; also notice that two of his abilities involve paying life and two involve sacrificing a creature, another form of symmetry.

What does everyone else think of this card? Does having four activated abilities make him too powerful? If so, should I remove the latter two (as the first two are the essential abilities that I must keep)? Is his mana cost too low?

What about Greed as an additional draw mechanic? I use it in my deck, and can enable me to find an answer if I need it.

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Necropotence .

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on the entire site. There's also over 130 comments worth of feedback and suggestions to sift through for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Sorry, I didn't that you already have Blood tribute in your deck. lol

But I think you could use a few more card draw effects. Perhaps Greed and Harvester of Souls and Damnable Pact ?
