Inquisitor's Flail Discussion

chapman.luke27 on Flickering Draws

I used to run a Ephara deck, recently changed it to a Brago deck for a change of pace. Faerie Artisans can get you more Ephara triggers and the copy ability can be fun. Mistmeadow Witch is a great way to get more flickers. Nevermaker is a great source of removal that basically steals a draw from your opponent. Stonehorn Dignitary is also great for stalling.

You could upgrade Clone to Vizier of Many Faces.

If you're looking for win cons, in my old Ephara deck, I often found it was easy to win with an indestructible 6/5 Commander with commander damage. Just slip in a Rogue's Passage. I also threw in an Inquisitor's Flail and Whirler Rogue, but the Rogue's Passage could easily replace one of your basic lands, Darksteel Citadel, or Faerie Conclave.

It's not budget, but Venser, the Sojourner is one of the best planeswalkers for EDH around and is perfect for a flicker deck. He's also another source for making Ephara unblockable.

Hope this helps.

Inquisitor's Flail is a good idea. I think I'd run Fireshrieker first but it's possible that both should be in here. I've thought about Conqueror's Flail to keep people from messing with me when I'm equipping and swinging, but it feels so lame with only colorless permanents.

Not sure what the best cuts are. Loxodon Warhammer is expensive to equip, but trample is good and life gain is important when I don't have much to defend myself from the backswing (which is almost always). Sword of Light and Shadow often doesn't have targets in my graveyard. Shield of the Avatar probably doesn't do much, but I mainly put it in because I wanted to be able to equip my thopter with shields, so it probably stays until I pick up an Accorder's Shield or maybe a Shield of Kaldra.

Talk about throwing stones. XD in all seriousness, this is a fantastic deck. However, it doesn't seem quite as fast. Have you considered all the damage doublers like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Dictate of the Twin Gods? Even Gratuitous Violence and Inquisitor's Flail feel like they should be included in here since it's mainly a Boros beat-'em-up theme deck. XD

Either way, it's gotta be fantastic to play with. Hope you have fun.

Chariot of Victory + Inquisitor's Flail = free double damage And maybe Darksteel Plate + Echo Circlet + Dead-Iron Sledge = punishing for attacks

@Mal_Mutation: The Coalhauler Swine was one of the cards that started this combo deck, so it's really more of a pet card of mine. Might not be in there for ever if I have to make this deck more resilient.

@AlmightyTentacle: Glarecaster does seem like a great fit, but as you said he is very mana heavy. If WotC ever prints something cheaper I'll take it.

@squirlfood: Thank you! Shaman en-Kor is a fantastic card I'll definitely include! To redirect any damage dealt to a creature gives you the chance to save other peoples creatures and play the political game that makes EDH so fun! Inquisitor's Flail is combat damage only though and I don't see a lot of that. Damage doublers like Furnace of Rath a quite the double edged sword. If I have proper protection it's all good, but if not they make you a target in order to remove the card.

@PurePazaak: Hell yeah, that would be amazing. If they ever print an suitable general in RWG Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is the first card to go into the deck! Too bad we just got a Naya general that doesn't help this deck...

@LeoSushi: I see your point very nice combo, but I really try to avoid combat as much as possible with this deck and so far it has been a good strategy! Scroll Rack will find a place in there, just not sure yet where.

Thank you all for the suggestions!
