Into the Roil Discussion

Thanks for your Feedback guys.

@Faded In one of my next Updates i will defnitly try to replace some cards with Echoing Truth and/or Into the Roil . Also Wash Out might be a good replacement for some of other removement spells. Warstorm Surge is already replaced with Ashnod's Altar - totale forgot about it. Arjun and Niv-Mizzet will leave the deck for cards from the Mayeboard in a future update. Up to now (only played ~25games) they did nothing for winning a game.

@BloGames2603 because of cutting expensive creatures in future Mindwrack Liege isnt an option then. Because of cards like Coat of Arms, Favorable Winds and Obelisk of Urd Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive isn't an viable option at the moment. If one or two of these cards will leave the deck i will defnitly consider about Tetsuko.

About Toothy, Imaginary Friend Im not sure because he is quite expensive to play and i have not much control about the moment when he dies. Therefore im tending to Chasm Skulker which synergize with cards like Impact Tremors and Goblin Bombardment .

Consecrated Sphinx will definetly find its way in to this deck. But op to now i have only a much cheaber version in Form of Windreader Sphinx . Nezahal, Primal Tide could also be a good replacement - i have to try him.

But why do you think Rhystic Study does not wirk with Propaganda?

Fellow Locust God player and I second the bounce cards as a form of removal. If you have a wheel effect ready then bouncing a problematic permanent is a fantastic, otherwise they can remove an obstacle to winning that turn, i.e. an opponents Propaganda . For bounce I run Disperse , Echoing Truth , Into the Roil and Wash Out .

I found that any card 6 cmc or greater was hard to play as I often wanted to cast The Locust God or if he was already on the field I wanted to play my cheap wheels/draw cards, not a single high cmc card. Specifically Windreader Sphinx & Warstorm Surge and to a lesser extent Arjun, the Shifting Flame & Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind .

Solid deck though, we have a lot of the same core elements. Locust God is awesome, he is one of my favorite decks at the moment.

I have made the following Changes

+2 Echoing Truth

-2 Into the Roil

This is due to the meta running slivers, and elves, where they run multiple copies of cards, so I'm hoping it's more effective.

+2 Chain Lightning

-2 Lightning Strike

I'm dropping the instant speed of Lightning Strike, for the reduced cost of Lightning Strike.

+1 Treasure Cruise

-1 Serum Visions

Testing this out for additional card draw by exiling the lands

Unfortunately, this isn't the place to talk about unbanning cards. Though Cyclonic Rift looks like a one-sided board wipe, the card isn't played as much in cEDH - although it is a bounce spell - most decks would rather use other options ie: lower cost ( Chain of Vapor ) or with the option to also draw cards ( Into the Roil / Blink of an Eye ).

Cyclonic Rift is a very powerful card in casual edh. I would likely only run it in baral, but to each their own. Some staxier decks run it. Upheaval on the other hand is quite unbalanced - and if fastbond was also unbanned - I'm sure that we would see tatyova decks & Gitrog decks on the rise. However - Upheaval is quite rightfully banned (as it's stupid).

Sheldon is the overseer of the list, but it's likely that with all of the new members of the committee for edh that we will see some unbannings, new ideas etc.

Dango on Lifegain in Tasigur Control

I updated the list a bit, adding in Damnation as well as Bloom Tender and Freed from the Real for an alternate two-card infinite mana combo. It also works with Arbor Elf to an extent if you also have Utopia Sprawl and can produce blue mana, but that is a little more telegraphed and not as condensed.

With the inclusion of these cards, I had to cut Wild Growth , Chain of Vapor , and Into the Roil . Wild Growth was cut because even though it could be a combo piece with Freed from the Real and Arbor Elf , it can only work on Breeding Pool (or Tropical Island , but I can't afford that at the moment). All of those conditions make that combo incredibly undesirable at the moment. Chain of Vapor and Into the Roil were cut simply because bounce spells just aren't as great as permanent removal that can destroy or exile cards.

I hope these updates help. I think an additional boardwipe is going to do a lot for me, and another infinite mana outlet should make the deck faster and more consistent. I have been doing okay with operating at low life because at that point, someone else's board can start to look scary so all of the people who attacked me early on turn to me and keep me around because they need me to keep someone else at bay haha. However, it just makes me really uncomfortable playing at low life because I can't effectively Ad Nauseam to find a combo piece that I need, and if I stop the threatening player from comboing off, nothing's stopping the next person in the turn order from turning on me again which puts more pressure on me to have answers for them too. Regardless, I think another boardwipe might be good enough to answer a heavy creature presence. I tend to run a lot of cards that hand out 3/3 tokens and a Gilded Drake, so that's why I've favored Yahenni's Expertise as means of crowd control for those primarily, but a wipe that hits everything that isn't indestructible is too good to pass up even though it kills Tasigur.

Thank you guys for your suggestions. I'm gonna try out these updates and see how they perform next time I play. :)

@TheLoneDart -- Wow, I really like this idea! I didn't realize how good Cryptic Serpent and Pteramander could be.

I'd recommend tightening up your list a little bit. Dismember is very much a sideboard card. While it's great against a few decks, it's bad against others (Tron, anything aggro, anything that can reanimate).

Repeal is best for decks with bigger manabases. Try Into the Roil instead.

+1 Cryptic Serpent . 100%.

Cut down on permission. This may be more personal choice, but too much and you run the risk of losing to the stuff they already have in play.

Finally, make sure to have a handful of ways to deal with all kinds of graveyard hate out of the sideboard. People could side in anything from Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus to Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void . Adding Annul to the SB gives you more outs to those cards (besides just Pithing Needle ).

I made a version, based on your list. Snaps added only because I happen to own a playset. These could obviously be swapped out for Mission Briefings, etc.

coltron518 on Remand: Good Counterspell in commander?

2 months ago

BrandonJamesCAC: Remand does not have the same effect as a kicked Into the Roil . Into the Roil does not counter spells, and only affects permanents that are already in play.
