Jar of Eyeballs Discussion

mahbucket on Shirei: good to have you back ($41)

1 week ago

Dig the budget Shirei, have you considered Jar of Eyeballs? It works quite well in the more artifact centered shirei deck i'm making: The recursion life, with a tweest, it can get ridiculous at times having near 30 eyeball counters on it, it's basically a tutor! Slate of Ancestry is an interesting add, its giving me some ideas...

This is amazing! Love the idea! Jar of Eyeballs would be a fun addition to this deck. Lightning Coils would be pretty crazy too, if you also had lots of creatures. Remembrance and Proper Burial offer you a huge advantage as well after you clear the board. I figured cards that give you bonuses when your things die would be good in this deck. Love the deck, and, like you, I love broken casual decks.

Cards I'm using in my commander deck that haven't been used already are:

Jar of Eyeballs

Culling Dais

Orochi Hatchery

I have a token/steal theme to the deck though, so obviously you might have something totally different for your deck.

Also of note is the new amonkhet card coming out called Oracle's Vault. There is always Umezawa's Jitte too.

Good luck!

projectneptune on Ayli Tribal Clerics

I'm in the process of revamping my Ayli deck into a tribal deck and your decklist gives me some great ideas so thank you for that. Welcome back to magic :) Some feedback for you:

  • I think instead of categories named "ramp" and "mana rocks", they should be "ramp" and "draw". This will give you a better idea of how many draw spells you actually have, which (in my opinion) you don't have enough for such a low mana curve. And on the ramp side of things, I'd stick in 2-3 more.

  • More commander protection.

Considerations for adds

Considerations for removal

  • Exorcist - I'm not a fan because it's only black, that's too restrictive
  • Orzhov Signet - *my issue with the signet is that it's CMC is 2 which conflicts with Ayli. I'd rather get slightly more value out of a 3 CMC the turn after
  • Orzhov Pontiff - Ability seems minimal at best but maybe i have tunnel vision
  • Hidden Stockpile - Maybe switch to Bitterblossom if price isn't a concern. Or, if you add some of the other token generators maybe this one won't be needed anyway
  • Martyr of Sands - Not nearly enough card draw to get a huge benefit out of this

BalorOneEye on Help with Ghave combo

There are a lot of key pieces that you are missing. I can give a few suggestions from the top of my head that might get you started in the right direction.

There are a million ways to go infinite with Ghave. It's harder to not go infinite.

Some cards that are probably underperforming and you might want to cut for these:

Welp, this turned out a lot longer than I expected. Hope it helps!

forgetremembering on Slow Deck... Any help?

4 months ago

I'd take out Abu Ja'far, Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Ajani's Chosen, Ball Lightning, Dream Pillager, Hanweir Watchkeep  Flip, Magma Giant, Platinum Angel, Tormented Pariah  Flip, Humble, Fall of the Hammer, Where Ancients Tread, Jar of Eyeballs.

I'm going to suggest a few budget options without the reason stated right now. Keep in mind Magic is a huge game. Some of us have been playing for a long time and so we have seen a lot of cards, but by no means do i know all the cards. I just know what has worked for me and my Gisela deck.

Manabarbs, Burning Earth, Grab the Reins, Crib Swap, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Revoke Existence, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Pilgrim's Eye, Staff of Nin, Sunblast Angel, Vandalblast, Seal of Cleansing, Auramancer, Armillary Sphere, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Burnished Hart.

I like the Divine Reckoning in the maybeboard. I've used that card well in the past and its really worked for me.

I have Banefire, though anther x spell would be nice... Aftershock can help in most situations. Jar of Eyeballs is great because you sac a ton of goblins then go and grab the combo piece you need if that be a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or a Basilisk Collar. also if you saced enough goblins you can search through your entire deck then put all the cards back how you want (if you searched your entire deck, when you put the cards back in any order on the bottom you can now pretty much stack your deck) anyway thanks for the comment and feedback geekmp3.

Did you include Aftershock because of how versatile it is or for another reason?
Can you do a quick write up on the inclusion of Jar of Eyeballs? Looks interesting.
No X burn spells? Not even a Comet Storm? My goblin deck has a lot of sacrifice for mana into X spells.
+1 for Goblins! Nice deck!
