Kethis, the Hidden Hand Discussion

Kethis, the Hidden Hand although more graveyard based is a really good way to recur planeswalkers. Also, he's a good ramp source!

Tyrant-Thanatos on Junk colors in EDH

3 weeks ago

So I've become a really big fan of EDH over the last few years, but I've never managed to build a junk deck (), despite it being by far my favorite color combination.

I just took a look at the available commanders, and it's no wonder!

Ghave, Guru of Spores doesn't seem to cater to what I'm looking for out of the colors at all, which is large resilient creatures that I can reanimate time and time again.

Teneb, the Harvester seems prohibitively expensive to cast and to use. Six mana for a 6/6 flyer that has to connect with face, just to have to pay a further 3 to reanimate something? sheesh.

Anafenza, the Foremost is in the same boat as Ghave, plus I have a personal dislike for her.

Karador, Ghost Chieftain seems okay, but pretty much directly inferior to Muldrotha, the Gravetide .

Doran, the Siege Tower is possibly even further from what I want than Ghave.

Daghatar the Adamant More +1/+1 counter stuff. and he's horrible to boot.

Kethis, the Hidden Hand might be interesting, but I'm afraid he'd just devolve into superfriends.

So I guess the question is, what do I do? Who should I build if I want a resilient, aggressive deck that can throw down threats that attack, and block, and come back, and never stop? And how to I build them? Teneb and Karador seem like the only real choices, but I need some tips on making them work. Is this sort of playstyle even viable in EDH?

Legendary Creature - Elf Advisor

Lands you control may tap to add any color mana.

Lands your opponents control lose all abilities and gain ": Add one of any color. This land deals 1 damage to you."

"Careful out there; It's quite dangerous."


Oooh that is disgustingly brutal...

Continue the cycle of Elf Advisors!!! ( Kethis, the Hidden Hand and Leovold, Emissary of Trest )

It must be a Shard / Wedge that contains in it. So we have the following left:

Splinterhead452: That meatshield's flavourtext had me burst in laughter. I really want this to become an actual card in the next Innistrad set.

Turthyal, the Hive Queen 3BRG

Legendary Creature - Insect

Flying, Deathtouch

Whenever ~ or another non-token Insect enters the battlefield under your control, create a 1/1 green insect creature token.

Whenever ~ or another non-token insect you control dies, create a 1/1 green insect creature token.

Tap 5 untapped insects you control, sacrifice a land: create a token that's a copy of ~. The token isn't legendary.


She's way too powerful I guess, but she's quite small and insects aren't the best tribe overall.

We recently got the second Fioran Elf Advisor in Kethis, the Hidden Hand (the first being Leovold, Emissary of Trest ). Lets pretend there is one of these for every wedge or shard that contains green. Give us another one of these four.

Kethis, the Hidden Hand seems like a better general fr this theme, with Anafenza in the 99.

A few things...

lifemtg thanks for your comment. So the deck uses self mill with cards like Commune with the Gods Grisly Salvage Fauna Shaman and Satyr Wayfinder to put things in my graveyard. Primevals' Glorious Rebirth lets me get everything out for free. Yes it is a high cmc but i get a lot of vaule out of it. On top of that Kethis, the Hidden Hand makes it even cheaper to cast. So even though the card you pointed out is mana intensive I have a way to get it out for less along with other cards.

Arbor Elf and Llanowar elf both essentially tap for one. The tie breaker is when i have Utopia Sprawl then Arbor Elf taps for two. The second mana can be not green which helps mana filter better. So i most likely will not take your suggestion there. If you have more ideas please let me know.
