High Tide Discussion

NoNeedToBragoBoutIt on Old, Hidden Gems in EDH

1 day ago

Aftershock - Oh, so flexible. Puzzles me how this is not a mono- staple.

Rack and Ruin - Same goes for this card. With the amount of Artifacts in the game this will never be a dead card.

Dust to Dust - What can i say? I just love the cycle.

Peace and Quiet - A little more conditional as the artifact iterations, yet still super cheap for its effect.

Ashes to Ashes - Doesn't hit Artifact Creatures, other than that: brutal.

Wicked Pact - Not as great as the above card, but i've seen it do great things as a filler card in new brews.

Repopulate - Instant speed gy hate for decks that don't have access to , don't want to loose the element of surprise by running artifact solutions. Plus, it has cycling. Love it!

Bubbling Muck - Sorcery speed High Tide for mono- decks or decks that can get Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth on the board reliably.

Dauthi Embrace - Unblockable2 plus insane political potential!

Soothsaying - Might not be a hidden gem exactly, still an awesome mana sync.

Erratic Portal - With so many people joking about EDH basically being ETB by now, this is easily abusable and somewhat political at times, too.

Deglamer/Unravel the Aether - Not as old as the above, yet heavily underplayed, as they can deal with the original gods and so many other things like Darksteel Forge. Total pet cards of mine!

Sudden Death - An instant speed creature removal that ignores indestuctible, get's rid of the vast majority or creatures in the format and hoses Breya, Etherium Shaper before activation. Just look at it!

also, Mikoroko, center of the sea is really good draw, and plays the political game. Declaration of naught feels like a tad too many counterspells to me, and its quite a slow one. High Tide would make for crazy turns with extraplanar lens to pump out those krakens.

This looks like a really nice deck to play in multiplayer EDH (FYI, I really like what you've said in your description on the differences between single/multiplayer EDH).

As you tend to use High Tide in your combo's a lot, I was thinking Extraplanar Lens could also be a nice addition (although I get that you're using Tide purely when you want to combo off; still worth considering though).

You don't want to wipe your own dragons, I get that. You could however consider Wash Out or Inundate; they wouldn't bother your side of the battlefield.

You cast High Tide for 1 blue mana then until the end of the turn, all your islands tap for 2 blue mana. Say you have 5 islands out. You tap one for 1 mana then you can tap the other 4 and then you have 8 mana to spend.

High Tide?

Reverie42 on Melek, the Copy Fiend

I wrote a bit comment and it got eaten by TappedOut. So, apologies for the brevity on this rewrite. These are a few suggestions based on a similar deck of mine.

Possible adds:

Potential Cuts:

  • I think the 1-shot token producers are probably not that great. They're reasonably good with Purphoros, but I don't think that's worth 6 slots in the deck. Don't worry about creature count in Melek. A lot of Melek decks actually go creatureless for the Proteus Staff combo.
  • Phyrexian Altar is probably really borderline unless you're running something like Fall of the Titans to just win without having to go an extra turn by saccing out all of your Empty the Warrens tokens.
  • Strionic Resonator is at best a very situational fork in Melek. It's probably better to spend your mana on a cheap cantrip / draw spell like Gitaxian Probe or Treasure Cruise.
  • Echo Mage is really expensive and vulnerable for its effect. You have to pump 7 mana and wait a turn to copy 1 spell. At that point, you're probably better off casting Eye of the Storm.
