Keiga, the Tide Star Discussion

jon.lamm.88 on Dear Lord what is going on?!

3 weeks ago


Yeah Goblin Bomb was pretty much instant hate, so I'm leaning towards swapping it out. My meta plays a Keiga, the Tide Star Control deck, a super mana ramp The Ur-Dragon, and a super cheerio artifact that uses ONE win-con or loses due to lack of size. Having all 3 of those hit at the same time with no good way to stop it is a bit rough, but Phyrexian Tyranny is a phenomenal equalizer for most things. I know this won't be competitive, but I'm not even making it to turn 4 by and large.

I am going to have to borrow a few cards from your In the Lab of the Mad Scientists, there are a few cards that I really look forward to plow through the field state with! Also, I'm building a Grixis control built around Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh that runs like a hatredcopter using Kess, Dissident Mage as a commander, so that might be my next major switch for this build. It is definitely still in test phase, but it's getting better.

Thank you much for the suggestions, and let the chaos ride!

Kamigawa dragons Keiga, the Tide Star and Yosei, the Morning Star are great on their own in this deck. However, along with them, run Rite of Replication because of how you can combo it with these dragons by targeting one or the other with kicker. For Keiga, this means stealing 5 creatures. For Yosei, this means tapping 25 permanents and skipping up to 5 untap steps spread amongst your opponents, and this effect can stack too; say you only have one opponent and you get this combo off, that opponent can't untap for 5 turns in a row while 25 (basically all) their stuff is tapped, effectively giving you 5 extra turns in a row. And you get to keep your original Yosei or Keiga. And with those dragons on the field, using Rite of Replication to copy, say, Sunscorch Regent 5 times is still pure value given Ojutai's effect. Also, I'd run Cyclonic Rift over those blue "wipes" any day. Sleep is better than Icy Blast. Blind Obedience over Kismet which helps snag all players and is more political. As for counterspells, you have a lot of cheap options with this commander. Counterspell should be a staple for control decks, as leaving up 2 islands is not at all an investment. Silumgar's Scorn to get a second one. Stubborn Denial and Swan Song are great for what they do, and Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command for great utility. Wouldn't run the Gideon because he doesn't offer much for the deck really. Nevinyrral's Disk should probs get replaced by Hour of Revelation for it will only ever cost 3 white mana in a multiplayer game, and Nevinyrral's gives your opponents too much time to prepare for it while also painting a target on your back. I think those are the main points for now. +1 from me. I'm a sucker for anything Ojutai; I used to run a voltron control deck with Dragonlord Ojutai, and now I run a voltron/control/spell-sling with Taigam, Ojutai Master at Ojutai's Mystification.

Thanks for your feedback guys! Eidolon of Rhetoric sounds like a great idea for my deck, the only problem with that is the fact that I can't play more than one spell each turn either, which limits me late game when I have a lot of mana and many cards in my hand because of Bygone Bishop.

Essentially my plan is to use Call to the Kindred to spam spirits out on the field, and also draw cards using Bygone Bishop to further the amount of creatures on the field.

I think getting the 1-of cards out is a great idea for this deck. I might replace Wall of Reverence with another Wall of Denial. It's gonna be hard to get rid of Keiga, the Tide Star though because I love it to much.

I also definitely have the problem of having a 3+ drop heavy deck, which makes it fall prey to aggro quick. Those suggestions will definitely make it more fast paced.

I think Ghostway, Eidolon of Rhetoric, and Not Forgotten are great cards for this particular playstyle.

I'd recommend adding some more (blue) steal-creatures like Empress Galina, Willbreaker, Keiga, the Tide Star, Memnarch and Roil Elemental. Arcane Lighthouse and Bonds of Mortality would also fit well in here.

Happy gaming!

I know it is not one on one but I would personally love to see the Spirit dragons (Jugan, the Rising Star, Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Ryusei, the Falling Star, & Yosei, the Morning Star) versus the Titans (Primeval Titan, Inferno Titan, Grave Titan, Sun Titan, & Frost Titan).
