PadreRasta on Next new deck?

1 month ago

Hello! I'm absolutely addicted to creating and playing new decks whenever I can, but I feel like they are always run the same line of objectives. I need something different. Right now I have a Syr Konrad, the Grim deck based on mill, a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger focused on a 12-rack strategy, making people go hellbent and want to punch me, a The Scorpion God deck based on -1/-1 counters & controlling the board, a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck on value and destruction/edicts, a Torbran, Thane of Red Fell burn chaos deck and a Neheb, the Worthy Minotaur Tribal. If you're paying attention, they all have one thing in common. Either they are mono red, mono black, or Rakdos. Well, I have a few decks that break this pattern: I own an Ayula, a Feather and a Rafiq deck, but I didn't build and brew them. I still love them very much, but they're adopted.

I am completely in favor of Jank, humor and silliness in general. Back when I started playing Magic, I brewed a modern deck themed around the number 7: seven letter names, seven p/t total, number seven somewhere in its text. Later it evolved to the number 13 because of Triskaidekaphobia, and lastly I merged them into a Baron Von Count deck that got dismantled because people hated dying on turn 5 constantly.

That is another problem I have a lot: getting targeted every game because my decks are frustrating to play against. So possibly a deck that doesn't provoke rage would be nice.

What would you beautiful people recommend me next? I have been looking into a goblin tribal (possibly Wort, Boggart Auntie), Queen Marchesa, and Kresh the Bloodbraided, but that's just Rakdos with extra steps.

I do not want any Superfriends type of deck, or decks that do everything all the time. No control stuff either.

ulysses2009 on Thassa's Oracle Doomsday (M25) piles

2 months ago

Hello together, I want to try out to play a little with Doomsday, and Thassa's Oracle came to mind. I already read a little about piles and have some ideas myself on what could be done, but i wanted to ask you, if you see important differences when using Thassa's Oracle instead of Laboratory Maniac. I didn't find everything i was looking for in the primers.

Do you see new way of looking at the piles and new possibilties to build them (except the fact that i don't need as many draws to win)?

For the decks i was thinking of, on the one hand i thaught about playing a Mairsil, the Pretender Version, with Grenzo, Dungeon Warden as a hidden commander. With Grenzo, a pile could have Peregrine Drake and Oracle on the bottom, perhaps Dualcaster Mage or Snapcaster Mage and win from one activation at instant speed, having a little protection. The problem is that i also need piles that work with one activation only, if Grenzo had to be caged, and preferably there is a backup pile if Grenzo gets exiled and i don't have acces to his ability at all.

Another Commander i thought about is Aminatou, the Fateshifter, as she cracks the pile like Sensei's Divining Top does. With those two cards and eventually a Necropotence in play, there already is a lot to work with, also because Thassa's Oracle is good for Aminatou for the top manipulation alone, it isn't a lost card slot, but i lack some inspiration for these piles.

Can you help me with some of my ideas?

Perhaps you see some potential and we can work something out, i am glad for every response :)

Honestly its up to you. Although Grenzo, Dungeon Warden might not want him as much, I can tell you that.

Hey folx,

So I missed the OG Theros. I know, I know...

But I have Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded and I enjoy the sneak attack mechanic built into the card. I'm curious if he works better, mono-style in the driver seat, or as a passenger for a Rakdos commander like Chainer, Nightmare Adept or Grenzo, Dungeon Warden?

Thoughts? And how would you build him?

Shark Typhoon: Let's just acknowledge that not only is this a funny reference, it's also pretty mechanically interesting. (Name's a bit lazy though, couldn't they at least called it something like "Selachian Tempest"?)

Fire Prophecy: +1 Grenzo, Dungeon Warden support

Jubilant Skybonder: Bran Stark reference?

triproberts12 on Jeepers Reapers, exploding Scarecrows!

3 months ago

I've encountered this problem when building with small tribes before, and that's the temptation to just fill the deck with Changelings. I've found it doesn't actually fell that tribal when you have one member standing next to two Changelings. I prefer to use cards like Kindred Summoning that put cards or tokens into play that amplify the presence of actual tribe members.

Since Scarecrows are all artifacts and you're going 5-color, you have more options than most to do that. Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Muzzio, Visionary Architect, Mystic Forge, and Saheeli's Directive can all be gas in this deck.

Scarecrows are also weak. You can take advantage of that with cards like Dusk / Dawn, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Mentor of the Meek, Reveillark, Slaughter the Strong, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion to take advantage of that.
