Imprisoned in the Moon Discussion

ohmless on Thousand Cuts: Tetsuko EDH | *PRIMER*

sweet deck. would love to build this. +1'ed. I don't get how this is a good deck to have thing in the ice included? I would prefer Imprisoned in the Moon over sigil of sleep. Not really feeling ovalchase dragster either so probably cut the dragster over the sigil of sleep? good brew!

Deck worked great against the Brago deck tonight. I locked down Brago with Imprisoned in the Moon. But it is too non creature permanent heavy without enough 1/1 unblockable creatures so I don't have much power to fight or block with. I either buy a bunch of creatures from Edric's Weenie Horde and drop a lot of those spells or I only play the deck against that Brago deck....

I would recommend you run some more wheel effects, including Teferi's Puzzle Box. Wheels are what make Nekusar terrifying, particularly once he's been given infect.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and The Scarab God are both incredibly powerful creatures that fit well with Nekusar's general strategy. Niv-Mizzet also goes near-infinite with Curiosity.

Library of Leng reduces some of the downsides of playing wheel effects, as you can use it to engineer a better hand.

Helm of the Ghastlord combos well with wheel effects--they discard their hand, and then are forced to discard all their replacement cards.

Imprisoned in the Moon and Deep Freeze take out enemy commanders without your opponents having the option to return the creatures to the command zone.

Sigil of Sleep turns wheel effects into massive bounce spells, helping clear enemy threats.

Couple suggestions:

  • You are going to want Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. Nekusar can be pretty lethal, but you're also guaranteeing your opponents draw their answers. Protecting him is a necessity.

  • I would recommend running more wheel effects. Cards like Whispering Madness, Windfall, Reforge the Soul, Dark Deal, and Winds of Change can produce incredible damage while also disrupting your opponents' strategies.

  • Alongside the above, Library of Leng is quite useful--you can use a wheel effect to discard the cards you do not need, but ensure you retain the cards you will want to use post-wheel.

  • Helm of the Ghastlord combos well with wheel effects--opponents discards their card and are forced to discard every replacement they draw. This can easily win a game by locking your opponents out of having cards in-hand. Like Curiosity, it goes pseudo-infinite with Niv-Mizzet.

  • Sigil of Sleep is a great card in Nekusar, turning every wheel into a mass bounce spell.

  • I would recommend cutting Font of Mythos. Cards like this seem like they should be good with Nekusar, but I've found their lack of built-in punishment quite counterproductive.

  • Imprisoned in the Moon and Deep Freeze are strong removal cards in EDH. Unlike more traditional kill spells, these enchantments do not cause an opposing commander to change zones. As such, your opponent does not have the option of returning their commander to the command zone, so the removal spell is permanent.

  • I second kamelyan's suggestion to use infect. A single wheel effect and they're dead on the next draw step.

  • Nekusar should be focused on winning as quickly as possible once you've got him on the field. Your assorted Persuasion cards cost far too much mana and do not contribute to your primary victory conditions. As such, you should cut them from the deck.

Finally, Unmake's colour identity is Black and White--as such, it is illegal with Nekusar.

Thanks, I forgot about Beast Within, I was thinking i could also use Imprisoned in the Moon as basically the blue version of Oblivion Ring or Banishing Light to get a little more flexibility in removal. Also as an enchantment if it gets wiped I could pull it back out of the graveyard with Muldrotha.

Reclamation Sage looks like it could slot in for Sultai Charm and again with Muldrotha graveyard recursion and transmute tutors for 3 - i'd lose the draw from Sultai Charm but i haven't seen that I need it so much in any of my play tests.

To be fair, cards like Song of the Dryads and Imprisoned in the Moon actually turn the creature into a land, making it so Brago can no longer target it with his triggered ability since he specifies "nonland permanents".

You have included a lot of fun things I see! I have also included cards like Imprisoned in the Moon and Narcolepsy to deal with pesky commanders, including Declaration of Naught (that one is more for my playgroup). If they do not have a sac engine those kind of enchantments completely screw their game plan.

Also Unexpected Results, because well, unexpected results...

All very budget and effective!

Bizagon on Does Sower of Temptation return ...

1 week ago

I wanted to confirm if I use Sower of Temptation or a Banisher Priest on my opponent's creature and they use Song of the Dryads or Imprisoned in the Moon on my creature they will not get their creature back as both of the creatures' I mentioned effects are until those creatures leave the battlefield and they are not leaving just becoming lands?
