Inquisitor's Flail Discussion

Briandhoffmann on Mein Unblockable

16 hours ago

If you want to play infect, you need to go all in with +4 Glistener Elf, +3 Ichorclaw Myr, and Distortion Strike and no other creatures at all for infect

else,

Replace blighted agent with Slither Blade

12-13 creatures is about right

get rid of Inquisitor's Flail, Phytoburst, Latch Seeker, and Muddle the Mixture, use only 2 drops or less for ultra fast unblocking action.

Get 1 more Blossoming Defense and 1 or 2 of Become Immense, and 4 of Might of Old Krosa and 4 of Vines of Vastwood for more protection and pump, maybe Rancor for more damage over time

Yavimaya Coast is a very good land for aggro and is cheap to get.

sideboard

Dispel, Negate, Vapor Snag, Apostle's Blessing (For more protection if needed), and Wild Defiance (Helps your pump spells go the distance in the long game playing against a controlling and slow deck)

If you really want to go all out: Misty Rainforest with Breeding Pool and Botanical Sanctum for perfect lands, Noble Hierarch for auto pump and ramp for more pump. Use Inkmoth Nexus for maxed out infect

+1 very nice. Have you looked at using Inquisitor's Flail or Quietus Spike?

WhiteWeasel on Building a budget Voltron

5 days ago

So due to being less than thrilled with my Bant Token deck, I was thinking about rejigging it to be a voltron deck since my commander; Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is pretty good at powering themselves up since I often play multiple opponents in my local magic group, and was considering of changing it to a new theme.

Cards I own

I For control and disruption I have plenty of control cards like Convolute, Counterspell, Simic Charm, Spell Rupture, etc... Disruption includes Divine Reckoning, Pacifism, Diminish, Paralyzing Grasp, Rapid Hybridization, Defang, Cage of Hands As well as stuff that trashes enchantments and Artifacts.

For powering up my commander my Artifact pool is less than ideal, had to work with what I got. They include Trailblazer's Boots, Fireshrieker, Skyblinder Staff, Ring of Evos Isle, Grafted Exoskeleton, and Livewire Lash.

Enchantments and effects for protecting my commander and/or giving them evasion include: Infiltrator's Magemark, Holy Mantle, Guildscorn Ward, Alpha Authority, Ghostform, Sheltering Word, Survive the Night, Haze of Pollen, Shielded Passage, Rogue's Passage etc...

Mana Ramp: Assume all of my mana rocks in the bant deck are going to be cannibalized.

Creatures: I don't have the good stuff to do a true one man voltron, but I can use walls like Angelic Wall, Fog Bank, Wall of Frost for protecting myself and the effects of creatures like Fan Bearer, Mistmeadow Witch, New Prahv Guildmage, to aid my commander so they can swing in for lethal damage.

Cards I'm Scouting to Buy

New commander to pair with Ishai: Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

The cards I'm looking to get for this build would be things like the WUBRG Wards and the dual color protection like Shield of Duty and Reason, and Spectra Ward. Mask of Avacyn, Swiftfoot Boots, Aqueous Form, Steel of the Godhead, Indestructibility, and Battle Mastery

Others: Ring of Thune (and the variants in the other colors),
Sword of Vengeance, Whispersilk Cloak, Inquisitor's Flail, Grappling Hook, Mask of Riddles, Sigil of Distinction,

Think this is something that I can/should pull off? Any Budget recommendations?

AkaAkuma on Gisela's Blazing Legion

Cool! :)

And just because their staple cards in normal Gisela decks. What about Malignus, Heartless Hidetsugu and Inquisitor's Flail (abusing Gisela's first strike)?

WargRave on $50 Zurgo Helmsmasher

xrex479 Thanks for the suggestions, Not of This World would surely lead to some hilarious reactions. That's a card that wasn't on my radar at all, great suggestion. Maybe I should swap it for a board wipe?

Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion is cool too. I just don't know about spending five mana for it since the deck has a lot of equip costs to pay. Rogue's Passage has the exact same issue of course, but its effect is a bit more unique in the deck. Zurgo is somewhat likely to already have double strike.

I made a few changes to get below $50. First, Boros Charm -> Double Cleave. This is a sad one since the indestructible mode of Boros Charm would be great in this deck, but sacrifices must be made.

Second, Bojuka Bog -> Swamp. To try to increase my grave hate in compensation, I switched Nihil Spellbomb for Rakdos Charm since Sunforger & Open the Armory can get it. I also swapped the bad topdeck of Blood-Chin Rager for Diabolic Tutor to get game winners like Tainted Strike or Obliterate. Lastly, I want to try Inquisitor's Flail in place of Fireshrieker since Fireshrieker is redundant with a second double strike source.

Daedalus19876 on God sent Anya and her army to destroy

sigh I wrote you a long, detailed comment, then my computer decided to delete it. Long story short, here was my suggestion:

Make sure all of your equipment and creatures will have an impact. I'd look to the equipment I'm using on my deck for some suggestions, but the most important ones you're missing are O-Naginata, Champion's Helm, and Inquisitor's Flail. Also, of the Swords of X and Y, I'd play exactly the opposite ones from the ones you have, lol.

More tutors are vital in Boros colors. Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Relic Seeker, Enlightened Tutor, Stonehewer Giant, etc would be my first choices.

Double strike and extra combat steps are helpful. Duelist's Heritage, Silverblade Paladin, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine).

Better removal and draw. Swords to Plowshares, Chaos Warp, Oblation, Reforge the Soul, Scroll Tax.

Protection is vital. Mother of Runes is the best, but more hexproof is always good.

Hope this helps! :)

Grind on My commander can beat up your commander

1 month ago

Looks like a fun deck, Rafiq is great and can be very powerful!
Saw your deck on the commander thread, here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them you like and are in your budget. Cheers!
Lands: cut Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree and some of your ETB tapped lands for some etb untapped multicolor lands to help your color production be reliable: Command Tower, Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, City of Brass, Breeding Pool.
ramp: Sol Ring, Simic Signet,Azorius Signet, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach.
control:
Wrath of God > Terminus.
Rout > Martial Coup.
Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift.
recursion:
Eternal Witness, Seasons Past, Mystical Tutor, Archaeomancer.
card draw:
Recurring Insight, Fact or Fiction, Stroke of Genius.
things to help Rafiq of the Many crush your enemies:
Rancor, Inquisitor's Flail, Steel of the Godhead, Shield of the Oversoul, Swiftfoot Boots, maybe Command Beacon, Sword of Vengeance, maybe Sigarda's Aid.
given how many creatures creatures you run, you might want some tricks to protect your board from boardwipes. Bastion Protector, Make a Stand, Dauntless Escort may or may not be useful.
anyway those are just the things i thought of. I built a rafiq deck a while ago, you should be able to find it in my profile if you want any more suggestions, i went a little bit more in on the pillowfort/control/combo side of things but the list was a bit pricier too. anyway have fun and keep crushing!
cheers
