Kheru Spellsnatcher Discussion

ruskifaker on Kadena, the Control Mage

I did not even think about the Vesuvan Brine combo, thank you for mentioning it.

Although I could see the benefits of Voidmage Apprentice, however I never really thought that a counter for 4 mana is any good, unless it adds some good things, like Kheru Spellsnatcher. Although I might reconsider about Voidmage, depending on where I go with the deck.

Write into Being does feel underwhelming to me too, yet I think with Kadena it adds some value (a 2/2 creature and a card draw) as well as using Primordial Mist you can always play the manifest if it isn't a creature.

But thank you for the feedback DankMagicianD

Mudlark This deck isn’t meant to be slippery or Elesh-Norn style. I said in the tags and description it’s a mill deck and lets me play my opponents cards. I’d consider the only “slippery” cards to be Spelljack, Kheru Spellsnatcher, and Gather Specimens which to be honest are often used more as anti-combo spells with the benefit of me gaining control of part or the entire combo.

Kheru Spellsnatcher was way too expensive for morph cost, Words of Wind is going in for a trial

Ooh thanks for all the suggestions Andrew30001! Since this deck is so new, a lot of cards are just ones I already owned. In terms of the counterspell suggestions, I really like the Stormtamer and Spellsnatcher. Siren Stormtamer looks perfect for all the Bojuka Bogs going around in my playgroup, and Kheru Spellsnatcher is another counter that lets me steal the spell for later use.

Speaking of the land searches too, I actually picked up a cheap Expedition Map the other day, I can use that and Sakura-Tribe Elder. However, while I was eyeing up the Saga, The Mending of Dominaria will shuffle my graveyard back into my library which is what I don’t want. I’ll have to look for an Eternal Witness and Mind Funeral for sure.

Devious Cover-Up and Bond of Insight are both for recursion of instants/sorceries but possibly replaceable once I test and see how new cards are interacting. Peregrine Drake alone is admittibly only good if I have the bounce lands out, but Deadeye with any of the etb creatures is great (Gravebreaker Lamia/Gray Merchant of Asphodel/Ravenous Chupacabra etc). Mesmeric Orb is awesome but too pricy if I want to keep this deck budget. Mindslaver is certainly interesting and I’ve seen the constant replaying to keep controlling someone, I don’t particularly want to be playing it. It’s simply not a fun card for whoever I’d be controlling and I don’t participate in any sort of tournaments.

Nice unique take on Muldrotha! For starters, I would try to cut as many nonpermanents as possible because the less of those, the more cards you can cast with Muldrotha. I would take out Counterspell, Devious Cover-Up, and Price of Fame and replace them with cards like Lunar Force and Decree of Silence or even Siren Stormtamer and Kheru Spellsnatcher. You could also replace them with plain removal like Pernicious Deed, Oblivion Stone, Hostage Taker, etc. However, I very much like Spelljack because it is so on theme with the deck, keep it in! In terms of ramp, Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation are great choices, but you can get by with using Sakura-Tribe Elder, Wayfarer's Bauble, Khalni Heart Expedition, The Mending of Dominaria for your ramp package. These are useful because, once again, they are repeatable. I would also cut the Llanowar Elves if you add enough other ramp cards. Archaeomancer can be upgraded for Eternal Witness. Bond of Insight, Merfolk Secretkeeper, and Mire Triton feel a little out of place because they only mill a few cards. If you want big mill spells I would put in Mind Funeral and Traumatize and for permanents that mill, Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Stitcher's Supplier, and Dreamborn Muse from your sideboard are all great cards and to top it all off Mesmeric Orb is a terrific card. If you want more instant and sorcery recurral The Mirari Conjecture is great for that. I'm not sure what Deadeye Navigator and Peregrine Drake are doing for you when they are on their own. Evil Twin, and any cards that copy other creatures are flavorful additions. Lastly, why not just steal their permanents when you can also steal their turns with Mindslaver. I hope my ideas have helped, and I hope you keep improving this deck!

With the 2019 Commander decks coming out, one of which is morph themed, watch out for Voidmage Apprentice Stratus Dancer and worst of all Kheru Spellsnatcher in response to your K. Grip! Also love all the updates to the deck, it looks great!

If I use Kheru Spellsnatcher to counter a creature card, then I cast that creature, and then that creature dies, does the creature go to my opponent's graveyard or mine?

It is a fun theme, for sure. Since you've put Ramos as the commander, an on-theme card you might want is Dragon's Hoard . Fixing and a cantrip as soon as you cast Ramos? Yes, please. Bonehoard and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder are both good and on-theme, too.

Aethersnatch and Kheru Spellsnatcher could be good, and you should have the mana sitting around to play them when the opportunity arises.

Thief of Sanity , Notion Thief , and Fortune Thief are all in Grixis.

Trash for Treasure and Treasure Nabber could be good if you incorporate an artifact theme, and if you want to go deeper on the graveyard, Treasure Cruise goes well with Trash For Treasure and Bonehoard if you want to fill the graveyard.

Faithless Looting is always good, and Looter il-Kor is a pet card of mine. Merfolk Looter is okay, as well. Smuggler's Copter might be stretching the theme, but Thada Adel, Acquisitor is both flavorful and fits the theme and an artifact subtheme.

It's not a great mana rock, but Gold Myr helps you splash white, and the flavor is spot-on, same for Silver Myr . Secrets of the Golden City is an underrated commander card, and you shouldn't have much trouble turning on the city's blessing. Again, if you put in some graveyard shennanigans and looting, Tasigur, the Golden Fang is as greedy as they come. Debtors' Knell goes well with graveyards and control, too.

Villainous Wealth just oozes flavor.

Price of Fame is flavorful, and it takes out commanders like a champ. Price of Glory can wreck certain decks, and you'll be mostly unaffected from your current list.

Increasing Ambition is pretty good, especially if you're going for a combo finish.
