Jar of Eyeballs Discussion

firstorb on The Little Engine That Probably Will

2 weeks ago

Hey thanks ElementalEd! I was hoping I'd have enough tap effects to stave off getting killed before I can pull of some of the 3+ card combos (Like 7 mana, Spine of Ish Sah, Priest of Yawgmoth, Mirran Spy, with a Disciple of the Vault and/or Altar of the Brood in play, being the most mana intensive combo) but yea, Reconnaissance was one I was not aware of, thanks! Also, spitting out annoying blockers with Nuisance Engine and Myr Propagator, killing with Kiku, Night's Flower, "sort-of-tutoring" with Jar of Eyeballs, Citanul Flute & Merchant's Dockhand are other reasons I have all those tap effects. As for straight up tutors.. I haven't decided yet if they're really needed, but will if they are. I do have a Trophy Mage in there though for digging up some useful artifacts.Arcum Dagsson and Master Transmuter are on my wish list atm, and I will eventually be trading out for more Inspired effects as this deck develops. Muzzio, Visionary Architect looks really groovy, too. Might have to get one. Lol, Caltrops. It's a great card, but is there a Sydri deck without it? I'll put it in when I get one. Probably, lol. With Sydri, Galvanic Genius effects, Kusari-Gama & Thornbite Staff & almost any other card in here will take care of early aggro..along with her effects & Liquimetal Coating to stave off early land drops in case I need to get rude..

There really is a ton going on with this deck, it kind of almost HAS to be played to see it all. Thinking of pulling the 7-8 mill effects though. It does play fairly defensively, but it's answers are usually to kill, exile, remove, or plain just give things Defender to just about anything..if I can get it moving fast enough.

AND, I just realized I should've put all this in the description, lol.

Thanks for checking out my deck though, feedback is always groovy. :)

XiphiasX on Shirei: good to have you back ($52)

Hey mahbucket, great suggestion of the Jar of Eyeballs, I'll put it into this deck the first chance I get. In your deck - albeit not budget - I like the addition of the teasing Chimney Imp: not too powerful or annoying, just a little bastard in this deck :-)

mahbucket on Shirei: good to have you back ($52)

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...

Illusificate on Destroy All Goblins

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.

philktoken8998 on Artifacts that use counters? (Atraxa ...

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

3 months ago

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

6 months ago

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?

6 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.
