Keening Stone Discussion

I actually pulled an Ulamog. To make the deck even cheaper I substituted Keening Stone

I appreciate the props. The current build is pretty sweet and it's a lot of fun.

Hushwing Gryff is one of those cards that I saw in a lot of really competitive lists, because while it's shuts down lots of my stuff, it also shuts down lots of other people's stuff. Typically I have enough Sac outlets and recursion to bin him and bring him back as suits me. That being said I am not playing to be extremely competitive and often times he does just sit in my hand, because I have other, more fun stuff I can do. I have thought of taking him out.

Vizier of the Menagerie is a sweet card that I just saw in a friend's deck the other day. Thanks for the rad suggestion, I'll certainly look into that.

As for Keening Stone, I'd rather lose to infect than mill. I once had over 2000 life in a standard deck and lost to mill. That was back when I started playing. Since then the taste has hardly gotten less bitter. For me, the Altar of Dementia is more than dirty enough.

Hey man I really like what you have going here! I would recommend maybe taking some cards out if you can like Hushwing Gryff I think that card can hurt you more than help. Also Vizier of the Menagerie is a GREAT card. Check out my Karador deck sometime, maybe you can get some fresh ideas.

PS: nothing feels better than beating your opponent with a Keening Stone.

SirSchwaenzelot on Damia Discard

Really like the deck! +1

I cards that would be really useful to include would be :

Viridian Longbow - for perfect creature removal with Damia (or some more creature removal in general f.e. Vraska's Contempt)

Also I think you should use more mass discard so that your opponents start running out of options, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip or Painful Quandary

Drake Haven for more nice discard value

Laboratory Maniac to defend yourself against getting milled

Reanimate or similar cards for more Reanimation

Splendid Reclamation works really well as a late game super-ramp (in general, you do need more ramp because damia is so damn expensive, but this depends on your local meta)

Keening Stone as an nice win-con after all that discarding

I also think you need at least 3-4 more artifact and enchantment removal cards else your opponents will go wild a very spicy option would be the Vraska, Relic Seeker and Vraska the Unseen

Also some board wipes like In Garruk's Wake or Necromantic Selection could be useful despite of beeing mana-heavy, else Damnation would be an option

Also you can include more protection for Damia, because she is so vital for the strategy EDH staples would be Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots or even Darksteel Plate.

In case you're wondering what to cut for all this, I'd recommend stuff like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, because works agaibst the discard value or Masticore, because it's just not good, but I think you can find it yourself.

I hope I was able to help you and my recommendations are useful. :)

DracoDarkstorm, unfortunately, AEther Flash and Polyraptor can not be ended without a third piece, so they actually are just part of a 3-card infinite combo rather than form a 2-card combo by themselves. Thanks though!

Jeyce, with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed on the battlefield, Triskelion will enter as a 5/5. If you remove a counter to hit an opponent, it will be a 4/4. Remove two more to hit itself, and it will die from being a 2/2 that was dealt two damage, then undying will trigger to return to the battlefield.

As for Goblin Sharpshooter and Splinter Twin, the catalyst for the combo is either a creature dying while the enchanted Sharpshooter is untapped or any creature with 1 toughness (or 1 damage away from dying). In both of those cases, the enchanted Sharpshooter can be tapped to create a token copy with haste, and then (if necessary) the token tapped to kill that creature. One the untap trigger(s) resolve, you will have an enchanted Sharpshooter and a token copy. From that point, you can tap the enchanted Sharpshooter for a token copy, tap one of the copies to damage an opponent, then tap the other copy to kill one of the token copies in order to untap the two Sharpshooters in order to repeat until death rains upon all opponents. This is very unintuitive when looking at the pieces, so I've added it to the description of that combo.

Funkydiscogod, fantastic catch on the combos with The Locust God and effects that trigger a draw when an insect enters! Thanks, they've been added.

I've added Keening Stone to the Fraying Sanity combos, thank you so much!

That Chandra combo though... that's definitely a 9-card combo lol

VraskaTheCursed, Sage of Hours cannot keep any counters on it if it activates.

Jeyce, I've added Benthicore to the Splinter Twin combos and Bounding Krasis, Breaching Hippocamp, Great Oak Guardian, and Sparring Mummy to the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker/Splinter Twin combos. Thank you so much!

I do have those combos for unhasty creatures already, but thanks anyways!

Dorotheus, yes, I am glad however that Minion is unique in its ability to combo with the Bracers though!

The Locust God + Beck = infinite hasty 1/1's

Traumatize + Keening Stone = complete mill

Chandra Ablaze + Mind Bend + 7 "extra turns" in the graveyard = infinite turns
