Karn Liberated Discussion

golgariizzet on Super Friends Commander/EDH

Doubling SeasonPrimal Vigor and Strionic Resonator are all going to make thing get out of control quickly in the game. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine would be good. i def. agree that Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice is a must and with green you need to take advantage of your mana ramp. how about the vivid lands they come with counters and would help fix your mana. Teferi, Temporal Archmage for card draw and for certain on his final ability, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Steadfast, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated. should be in there. i do agree with multimedia on what to take out except for kiora thats a solid planeswalker some more card draw would be good also. and some protection for atraxa like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. here is how i built mine it's not super friends but it should give you some ideas.

I have a few suggestions, I also have an eldrazi deck of my own, The Terrifically Terrifying Titian Trio. Instead of having many one ofs, u would make a few four ofs, also, the Eldrazi Conscription is not necessary, you dont need the Emrakul, the Promised End or two of each titan, take the worse one out, you also dont thee the Not of This World. somecards you should add, Eldrazi Temple for extra land base, Expedition Map, to search for your urza combo, and Karn Liberated if it is in your budget. there are you tip, i would appreciate it if you would check out my deck and upvote it if you like it. (to find it just click on my name and it should pop up at the top of the list).

colton815 on MDN Dragons

sorry but this is not modern viable. you have barely any removal, and its too slow. too many high cost cards. modern is a turn 4 format, meaning games are usually won or basically locked down by that point. infect can win on turn 3, burn can win on turn 3 or 4, a player could cast Through the Breach into Emrakul, the Aeons Torn on turn 4, and Tron decks can cast Karn Liberated turn 3 followed by Ugin, the Spirit Dragon turn 4.

Oloro_Magic on Boros Aggro - Competitive Humans & Tokens

1 week ago

Okay so I just finished my first round of matches (there are a couple matchups I have yet to test against for various reasons but I'll try to get to those as well) and so far this is how the deck has performed.

  • vs. U/B Turns 0-2

(Preface: this is a personal deck of mine and one I have been fine-tuning for quite some time for competitive play, so experience was likely a factor) First game turns had a nut draw where it was able to combo off and take 7 consecutive turns starting turn 5, well timed Gigadrowse and Cryptic Command before that ensured your deck couldn't do much. Game 2 was equally not close, turns was able to flip a Thing in the Ice  Flip and combo off the next turn. (Also I have been really testing my turns deck against shadow so you know, and you ran into the hate I have in place for that deck.)

  • vs. G/W Death & Taxes 0-2

(Another one of my personal decks and a deck I have tons of experience with) Game one D&T had two operating Aether Vial, simply got out ran. Game two was long and grinding going 20 turns. Eventually lost to Ramunap Excavator and Ghost Quarter lock and simply didn't have enough blockers to withstand a full swing.

  • vs. Titan Shift 2-1

This result surprised me. I expected that Titan Shift would set up its combo quick enough to beat the agro but I was wrong. Game one a Scapeshift with three active Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle killed your deck easily. Sided in some removal and Aurelia, the Warleader and was able to kill quickly both times before Titan Shift had a chance to combo.

  • vs. Grixis Shadow 0-2

(Preface: Though I hate the Death's Shadow deck I have play tested it a lot and I am pretty experienced with it due to its place in the meta and me having to know my matchups) Not much to say here, simply wasn't able to out agro the best agro deck in the format. Shadow held onto its counters for burn spells and won with Snapcaster Mage and Death's Shadow beats.

  • vs. Oath of Nissa Bant Superfriends 2-0

This is another one of my personal decks but from the moment the match started it felt a turn behind. Game one Superfriends started out mana screwed but just as the Superfriends deck was setting up its lock and stabilizing a well timed Always Watching was able to pump some tokens and get in for exact damage (if this didn't happen the deck would have lost so you know). Game two Superfriends was mana flooded, won without difficulty.

  • vs. 4-color Aikido 0-2

Another personal deck of mine. Aikido is a lifegain deck that punishes you for having creatures, both games simply couldn't keep up with the lifegain.

  • vs. Mono-White Flicker 2-1

Mono-white flicker is a comb deck that aims to go infinite in a number of ways using Felidar Guardian and Panharmonicon. Game one was quick enough and won before Flicker was able to set up its combo. Game two lost to infinite life combo, conceded on the spot as the flicker deck would have created infinite tokens next turn. Game three well timed removal on combo pieces was able to outpace the flicker deck.

  • vs. Infect 2-1

Not much to say here, game one got caught without removal in hand Path to Exile, that didn't happen again.

  • vs. Eldrazi Tron 1-2

Won game one by the virtue of bad topdecks from the Tron deck, it had assembled tron but had no threats to play with its mana. Game two lost to turn two Thought-Knot Seer, followed on curve by Reality Smasher and Endbringer. Game three lost to a Karn Liberated in combination with Reality Smasher, All Is Dust, and Walking Ballista.

  • vs. U/B Faeries 2-1

A personal favorite deck of mine but a deck that has gone years without a serious upgrade. Game one a very large Champion of the Parish was able to beat down. Game two lost to double Bitterblossom followed with a Scion of Oona, and Cryptic Command's aimed at tapping down attackers. Game three was able to land a Hanweir Garrison on the play (if I hadn't been on the play Spellstutter Sprite would have countered it). The tokens generated this way were able to win the game with Always Watching , even when faeries had Bitterblossom (this match was close the final game final life total was 5).

  • vs. Merfolk Aggro 0-2

Arguably the third or even second best agro deck in the format (Shadow and Affinity are genrally considered the best), the islandwalk and Merrow Reejerey really hurt both games as did a flashed in Harbinger of the Tides returning a large Student of Warfare to my hand before swinging for game. This matchup felt winnable just got unlucky with Merfolk's draws.

  • Conlusion

So that is what I have tested so far, I still want to test the deck against Knightfall, Burn, Affinity, and Control, hopefully Friday some of the players I know who play those decks will be there and I can test for you. Overall though the deck did well, the mana base was honestly a little painful, I really think you want Inspiring Vantage in the deck, it is just a great land and Mikokoro, Center of the Sea was completely a dead card; it was never needed. I would replace it with something like Needle Spires as creatures are always nice, or Ghost Quarter (sometimes I just wished I had it in the deck but that is just me).

Hyperalgialysis on Butcher of the Infinite End

1 week ago

I think maybe some early play cards would be a big help. Stuff like Pilgrim's Eye Akroan Horse Spatial Contortion Warping Wail and other colorless fodder. I know you need to get a lot of mana up to get going, but not having any early game options may be a problem. If your group is very laid back you might be ok, but even then someone gets a good aggro start and your board is empty makes for a short game. I also think that maybe increasing the number of cards of each typ might be handy. I know your options are limited but having the extra types in your grave will make your commander cheaper to cast. Aside from the instantz I suggested Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are 2 other cards to help in this regard. Good luck to you

Yesterday on Looking for the name of ...

1 week ago

I was humouring the idea of a Commander deck with a sub-theme of restarting the game and playing sub-games, with an alternative win condition of opponents getting frustrated and then conceding and then conceding.

I know of the cards Shahrazad and Enter the Dungeon and Karn Liberated. I also know that there's a very limited green card that I can't find, I think it goes like so:

Both players shuffle their libraries together and restart the game using the same deck and with a third player.

IIRC, it was made in commemoration of of somebody at Wizards having a child.

Any help would be appreciated.
