Haunted Crossroads Discussion

Demarge on Aghave, tequila token party

2 months ago

Abzkaban this is essentially a revised version of my old ghave deck Tokens and Counters Everywhere, now outside of the obvious answer to some of your suggestions of "I don't have it and follow a build the deck you can play with brewing idea" (mainly the ballista, it came out when I was away from the game and I'm stuck hoping hangarback can do a close impression) I admit I love defending card choices (often it can drive me to want to change it up when I actually type it out) so here we go.

Though I will pause and say I honestly am not currently in any meta, it's usually a long drive to find anyone who's into commander and quite often the games I am in I have to carry many decks of varying strengths, my tasigur is aimed to be the high power deck while this one I'm more looking for something that is strong, but I can play it against non cedh people.

now Butcher of Malakir , Citanul Hierophants and some other odd creatures are chosen because they are creatures that I can Birthing Pod into or reanimate.

as for why Martyr's Bond over pact or dictate it's partially because I've made my mana base purposefully heavy in plains for the Emeria Shepherd Sakura-Tribe Elder combo and bond procs off itself, another reason it because quite often if I'm going to get a game of commander in I'll have to let people borrow from my decks, one of which is Sigarda, Host of Herons and yeah in the past someone borrowing a ghave deck would just clear the board of everything but the tron angel just making voltron strat stronger seeming than it really is. and now that I think about it there's a few Rest in Peace or leylines in some of the decks I have sleeved atm...

Now the undying creatures and persist ones are definitely interesting, but that level of tuning the deck likely will go for the higher power level and less the janky Doubling Season power level. I might look into it if I ever get to play paper mtg as much as I really want to.

the macabre was picked mostly just to be the surprise uncounterable gy hate that I can Haunted Crossroads back. though maybe I should put back the Knight of the Reliquary back in and add the bog over the archdruid, question is if I have a spare bog lying around.

Yes i want to stay Mardu as everyone eles is either doing Neheb commander (at least in area) or angrath oathbreaker. And i fully admit that red and black are needed but even if you don add the white minotaurs having the boros combat tricks and support does alot of work and while not need having reusable grave recursion with Athreos, God of Passage , Sword of Light and Shadow , Debtors' Knell , and Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (though she only hits 7 of my creatures). and maybe Haunted Crossroads means you can attack without worrying about removal other than exile. and i guess this deck is less aggro and more mid to late game combat and kill

Lordofthesith on Yennett tax

The first phase of this deck had me playing cards like Mortuary or Haunted Crossroads but I eventually found out that I didn’t have enough creatures to warrant slots for that

I’m looking for more combos or lockdown effects to limit my opponents moves

exec-MTG on Yennett of the Odd Fate

Mostly, i tryed to sinergise my creatures, like Doom Whisperer & Approach of the Second Sun

What i do it's manipulate the top with Approach of the Second Sun , with Doom Whisperer and Sensei's Divining Top in the field, then Pay 6 Life (even with 1 life total this will works since you gain 7 lifes) and use the top to take Approach of the Second Sun and hard cast it in the same turn in second main fase to win the game very oddly.

Also, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign works very well with Artisan of Kozilek and Sepulchral Primordial / Diluvian Primordial giving me a TON of Value with at least 2 huge creatures, and probably 5 creatures or 3 other good spells (and also get rid of those spells), get the most valuable from others graveyards.

If there's something to improve it's probably use some fetch lands, and i'm considering Penance and Haunted Crossroads

What about Conspiracy, Xenograft, or Unnatural Selection (tutorable with Muddle the Mixture and Dimir Infiltrator) for redundancy?

Haunted Crossroads is probably the best reanimate spell for Yuriko.

Wound Reflection and Archfiend of Despair are good to throw more damage around.
