Illusionist's Bracers Discussion

Illusionist's Bracers seams like a must have equipment as it doubles alot of your creatures effectiveness, especially in multiplayer games.

Neko-Te is an interesting card. I think it would work better in a more wheel like deck but it also would work with about half of your creatures.

@Austin_Smith_of_Cards - Thanks for the suggestions. I'll let you know why or why not I play certain cards. I'll start with the ones that I am not going to add in.

Storm Cauldron - One of my friends plays this card, and it is absolutely miserable to play against. One of my least favourite things to do in commander is attack someone's lands, so this card is a card that I choose not to play based solely on that. I understand it's power in the deck, but it's not a card for me.

Omnath, Locus of Mana - I understand that this card is a secondary win-con, and maybe someday it will find it's way in to the deck, but for now I want a hard focus on my commander, which informed a lot of decisions around it.

Krosan Grip - My build has focused on a lot of catch all removal already, and among my playgroup the split second isn't insanely relevant, so I chose to use Chaos Warp and Beast Within in that slot.

Cards that I'm considering:

Seek the Horizon - Currently this isn't in my deck because I have a multitude of wheel effects to fill a similar role, but which can also draw me into spells. I do like your point about it helping to cast my commander though, and might play with it and see if I can fit it in.

Illusionist's Bracers - Again I understand the power level of this card, and honestly I'm not quite sure why I cut it given my goals with building the deck. It falls into the same camp as Gratuitous Violence, and has just fallen out of the list. Likely I will find room for both those cards though.

Cards I want to add:

Harmonize - Because I love drawing cards. I have more powerful effects for similar mana costs, but redundancy never hurts.

Oracle of Mul Daya - I don't have this card on the list solely because of the cost and the fact that I don't own one. I will probably acquire one and slot it in though.

Thanks again for the suggestions, I appreciate the upvote too :)

Storm Cauldron is pretty useful for going off with your commander lategame. Also screws over opponents if you play it right.

Seek the Horizon absolutely refills your hand with lands. Also useful if you want to ensure you'll be casting your commander.

Illusionist's Bracers lets you deal twice the damage with Borborygmos. Especially since the resource you're using is limited, you'll want to get the most mileage out of it.

Oracle of Mul Daya is pretty expensive, but absolutely crucial for helping to curve out an eight-mana commander. Also lets you filter out dead draws.

Harmonize is straight green card draw, always good.

Omnath, Locus of Rage gives you something else to do with all your land drops in case Borborygmos is put out of commission.

Krosan Grip is the best artifact / enchantment removal in green. Essential for interrupting combos that could be infinite otherwise.

darmpark Thank you, great suggestions. Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth are interesting cards. Unfortunately, I don't think I am running any non-mana activated abilities. I thought about Thromok the Insatiable and Ulasht, the Hate Seed when I first brewed this deck. The more I play the more I am understanding how much removal is in my meta so throwing all/most of my eggs in one basket is risky. If I fixed the slowness of my deck and can consistently have a small army on the board, then I will definitely consider them. Chancellor of the Forge and Deploy to the Front are great and I will play around with them a little. This deck seems very fragile when it comes to ratios so I have to see if that is too much token doubling and not enough token generators. Darien, King of Kjeldor is interesting and reminds me of Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, which was in here. I took him out for consistency. Once this deck gets the speed and consistancy I want, I will see what can be cut and replaced with some big beatsticks. Thank you again!!

I have a few ideas of things you might want. I haven't seen anyone mention things like Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth, but maybe those aren't quite worth it just for Rith and Rhys. I'm also not seeing an Anointed Procession, which should be a definite add if you're not on a budget. Thromok the Insatiable has the potential to get HUGE in this deck. Ulasht, the Hate Seed can be huge OR make tokens depending on what you need once you play him. Darien, King of Kjeldor makes tokens while also dissuading people from hitting you. Chancellor of the Forge could also be good once you get your board going as can Deploy to the Front.

You've got a good base going, and I hope these suggestions help.

If I can throw my two cents in, some tokens in green that have always been fun for me are wasp tokens created by Hornet Nest and Hornet Queen. With this deck, there's no doubt could create a giant cloud of 1/1 deathtouch fliers. Also, I know its really pricey mana-wise but Desolation Twin has the potential to be hilarious in this deck if you're up to the challenge. Finally, considering Rhys's second ability, it seems odd to me you didn't include a Illusionist's Bracers or a Rings of Brighthearth.

-Alms Collector

This change was made because most of the combos I was trying to stop didn't care about the collector but do care about the tax.

silversuriv good points. I had honestly forgotten that Ivy Lane Denizen was a card. Illusionist's Bracers I just don't like, it costs more than I want to pay for that effect and doesn't benefit the deck outside a combo.

Oracle of Mul Daya is a strong consideration but I have been decreasing the land count slowly. The Crucible of Worlds plan is more important as I add the rest of my fetches and rely greatly on the mass land destruction plan as you said.

silversuriv on Marath Says No

Hey, so I was wondering how come you aren't running Ivy Lane Denizen or Illusionist's Bracers. I was reading on the common Marath combos here and the different subgroupings let you combo off in many ways.

Also, wouldn't Oracle of Mul Daya be good alongside Azusa? I'm guessing you like Azusa after a MLD effect with Crucible or Excavator out or when Skullclamp is going to town but Oracle helps when Azusa is out of play or when you have infinite/lots of mana with Vizier and hit a land.
