Helm of Obedience Discussion

HauntinYou on Sorry, but they have to go, YES ALL OF THEM!

Hiya,This deck looks sweet! I have some cards that you maybe can add too:

  1. Withered Wretch (targeted removal against graveyards shenanigans)
  2. Fatespinner (pretty good protection, nobody wants to sacrifice main phases or carddraw)
  3. Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void or Planar Void (Instakill)
  4. Wrexial, the Risen Deep
  5. Nemesis of Reason
  6. Riddlekeeper
  7. Szadek, Lord of Secrets
  8. Shred Memory (exiles stuff from graveyards AND can tutor up important combopieces (e.g. both pieces of the duskmantle combo)

JaysonSunshine I have a competitive brago deck in the making and i love Helm of Obedience. Not only it does combo with Rest in Peace but it also combo's with Strionic Resonator allowing for some infinite mill and bribing all your opponents creatures.

DanteBeleren on Deck? What Deck?

If in budget Power Artifact with either Grim Monolith or Basalt is infinite colorless. More combos are Helm of Obedience and anything that exiles graves such as Leyline of the Void or Planar Void. To speed your deck up to outrace other players (aggro is your worst enemy) you need more mana rocks (Talisman of Dominance/Mind Stone/etc) and tutors to get your pieces (Transmute is very useful). Everything else is really up to preference on how you wanna pilot the deck.

I'm guessing you're looking to focus on Oona, but there's a lot of similarities between our focus (or really any mill deck lol) and so if you wanna look through go for it. Life's Greatest Illusion

Helm of Obedience is great when you have the leyline already in the deck. That's a must play!

benw mirko vosk is a 2/4. He doesnt have hexproof, indes, or shroud. Dreadbore, Terminate, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Decimate, Wing Snare, Pongify, all of these kill him. Most before he could deal damage. the only evasion he has is flying, in which green snipes him down all day too.

Most cedh decks run at least 31 lands. 31/4 is roughly 8. Thats 5-8 times you need to hit a SINGLE player to mill them out. And many players run some sort of graveyard shuffle, like blue with Timetwister. And this is multiplayer cEDH. Which means you have 2 other opponents besides the one you just hit. And getting in even 5 hits with him? well hes a 5 drop. Say you get him out turn 3. By then, zur and teferi have usually set up most of the lock if not all. then youre talking another 5 turns to kill 1 person off milling. Thats turn 8, and by then someone else probably won. Even if you want to add in all those other fun things like Glimpse the Unthinkable and Archive Trap, they wont bring you much further. Maybe speed up everything by 2-3 turns for 1 player. But mirko still wont be able to win quickly without Helm of Obedience and Leyline of the Void. By the time you get them out if you had to hardcast leyline? turn 3 activation, which someone can stop pretty simply too. Its hard to explain all the fine details but this is the best i can do on lack of sleep lol

I would use Leyline of the Void to prevent shuffle effects like the one of kozilek and ulamog. You can also play the Helm of Obedience combo in the deck then, which is a very reliable way to kill imo.

Hello Sir,

I also play a legacy enchantress deck which you might want to take a look at (Legacy Enchantress (No Emrakul)). It is quite similar to your build but is a little bit different though.

You might want to consider playing basic lands instead of the Temple Garden. This improves your matchup against any burn decks (like burn or UR Delver) and furthermore it helps you to get a better boardposition against decks running Wasteland or Blood Moon.

I also used to play three Rest in Peace and two Helm of Obedience. At the moment I only play two and one. This opens a bit of space in the deck for other winoptions and is not a problem at all for me since I find the pieces I need sooner or later by picking up two Enlightened Tutor. It is no big issue swapping those out for the tutors, since it only adds more flexibility to your deck. :-)

Best regards,
