Increasing Ambition Discussion

Didgeridooda on Oona, And All The Dreams You Used To Have

You have some very good draw going on here. I think you should add some more though. Phyrexian Arena is awesome, Bloodgift Demon can even get it done sometimes, Rhystic Study is great, Mystic Remora is one of those cards that gets better as the quality of opponent's goes up.

Budget tutoring. If you are on a tight budget there are some tutors that you might make use of if you ramp well. Ramp is so important in Oona as it really gets her ability going. Demonic Collusion, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition are all good budget options.

Also Thousand-Year Elixir is pretty great with some of the abilities you have here.

I hope this all helped, going competitive is not too hard, but takes a little different build. You just have to concentrate on what you do, and work to consistency, and speed. Let me know if you have any questions. I would be happy to help further if you would like.

It's thematic, but I don't know what I'd cut for it. It's also a total of 13CMC to pull off. This deck ramps, but there are other things I'd rather hit for 13CMC, like casting Increasing Ambition then flashbacking it. I bet Descent of the Dragons would go great in a Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck, where you could destroy all of your own kobolds and get dragons in return.

Karns_Pyromancer: I do have the Diabolic Intent, but I'm rather attached to Increasing Ambition just because of its reliability in tying together combos for me. What about Sadistic Sacrament? I don't have that yet and as good as it is, I don't know if it's worth painting a target on my back.

I love that your deck uses the wacky door. I play tested it a couple times and I actually pulled off using the door, so +1 from me. However, your Worldspine Wurm always turned out to be a dead draw for me because I could never ramp to 11 before I died. I would suggest removing two, as they are your secondary win con anyway, and you have Increasing Ambition to search for them. I would recommend two Devoted Druid in place. They work well in my ramp deck and they go with with Elvish Archdruid.

In mono-black Cabal Coffers is your greatest card so you should run more ways to get it out. Expedition Map is good, Demonic Tutor is capable of grabbing it, Beseech the Queen is an excellent tutor, and I personally always run Increasing Ambition but it is a pet card of mine. You can also run Thespian's Stage or Vesuva to make a second one.

I have some other suggestions but I would like to know the budget first.

If you rely more heavily on certain cards (which does happen often in EDH), adding tutors like Diabolic Tutor, Rhystic Tutor and Increasing Ambition can be both cheap (money wise) and useful.

Nice creature! I like the fact that they are almost all . Even though he's (she's ?) mono , Sheoldred, Whispering One can both help you bring back important creatures and hinder your foes.

Hope this helps!

My Merieke Ri Berit deck is my favorite one.

I have a few questions to start. What is your budget going forward?

I try not to rely that much on her ability since she gets removed often. Though, Minamo, School at Water's Edge is great utility, and Expedition Map helps fetch that out.

Your land count is too low, and I think you could use some more ramp, and draw/tutor as well. I would also run as many of the fetches as you can. Wooded Foothills is the only one you can not get use out of.

Consecrated Sphinx, is one that I would love to get my hands on for my deck. Mystic Remora is pretty good too.

Diabolic Revelation, Demonic Collusion, Increasing Ambition are good budget things.

Gilded Lotus, Wayfarer's Bauble, Solemn Simulacrum

Also, I was a little curious as to why you don't run counters.
