Kaya, Ghost Assassin Discussion

Hej hej,

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.

My Decks at the Moment:

EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)

Oathbreaker: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (Artifacts) Jace, Memory Adept (Milling) Liliana, Death's Majesty (Zombies) Liliana of the Dark Realms (Ramp/Shades) Kaya, Ghost Assassin (Flicker/Token)

Former Decks (I hope I remember all):

EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)

Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.

I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

Love and happyness Corbeau

If you still want planeswalker tutoring, I'd replace Deploy the Gatewatch with Ignite the Beacon . 2 less mana, you still net two planeswalkers, and instant speed. Ajani Unyielding has an incredibly useful ultimate.

I'm really not sure what Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai is doing in your deck tbh. I don't think Kaya's Ghostform does enough to be played over other cards, same with Oath of Kaya . I personally would cut Kaya, Orzhov Usurper too. I promise I don't hate Kaya as a character! but Kaya, Ghost Assassin is the better of the two imo

Also, TheBloopKing suggested Time of Need . It's a great card for fetching legendary creatures, but that's all it will get. So I wouldn't run it

Ravenrose on Teysa, the Rightful Matriarch

With the amount of creatures that you play, it may be prudent for you to invest in a Living Death . I think that Krav and Regna may also be very fitting for this deck. Cruel Entertainment is definitely a flavour win - I think that many spirits are nothing but a cruel entertainment for the Orzhov loansharks. Since Tomik was her closest advisor, you might want to put him in as well. I am missing an Obzedat, Ghost Council in this deck, as well as a Karlov of the Ghost Council . Karlov was Teysa's grandfather so I think he is very fitting. Another consideration is the new Kaya, or Kaya, Ghost Assassin .

Hope this helps! If you have some time, please check out my Feather or Nightmares deck.

Kaya, Ghost Assassin is great in an aminatou deck, i have to say i have the most fun running my aminatou deck out of all my decks. Aminatou Blink this is mine, check it out and lets exchange ideas?

Joe_Ken_ on Marchesa, Queen At Arms

multimedia I need to update the deck since I do have a few of the cards you are suggesting and I need to remove and swap some stuff out.

I would like to keep Sorin, Grim Nemesis in the deck since it has just won me a game before.

Archetype of Courage gives my creatures first strike which is more to combo with Queen Marchesa for deathtouch.

I keep Protector of the Crown in in case I need to get the monarchy back and because it combos really well with Hammer of Nazahn

I like Torment of Hailfire but I could see removing it since I’m not playing mono black and don’t have a crazy amount of mana ramp.

I’ve been meaning to put in my Luminarch Ascension , Windborn Muse , No Mercy , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and Enlightened Tutor . I also have a Containment Priest so I should probably put that in since it also goes good with Kaya, Ghost Assassin

I would like to hear your reasons for making some of the cuts you suggest.

Debt to the Deathless and Gray Merchant of Asphodel are also really good drain effects. Consume Spirit can only have black mana spent on it but its also decent. Kaya, Ghost Assassin is also a solid pick. Crypt Ghast is great ramp and has extort as well making him a great option. Would recommend Blind Obedience and Ghostly Prison to give yourself some pillow fort defense to keep you protected while you drain everyone out.

That apprentice can cheat in Kaya, Ghost Assassin permanently... but it’ll cost 2RR for it total so that’s not much of an upgrade over 2BW... guess any shenanigans he does will be pretty fair.
