Kindred Boon Discussion

DrukenReaps on Edgar Markov's +1/+1 Counter Madness

2 days ago

XD I didn't even notice the entire deck wasn't up. Ok lets see with the full list.

Looks much better than the half a list I looked at lol.

I still think Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Skullclamp are among the best things you could add. I would also take a look at why you are even bothering with white. Edgar Markov is cool and so are the other white things you have but such a small amount of white almost hurts the deck's consistency. I'm also not a fan of splash colors so maybe I'm not the best person to get this opinion from...

If you are set on edgar I might find a place for Anointed Procession, Cathars' Crusade, Kindred Boon and keep a close eye on ixalan with it's white vampires.

Saharez on Vampire Deck - (First EDH deck) advice sought

6 days ago

I've got a couple of suggestions!

Diabolic Intent would be a cost effective tutor for you, considering your reliable access to tokens.

Falkenrath Noble can be a boardwipe deterrent, just like your Blood Artist

bloodline necromancer can be efficicent, for two bodies.

Herald’s Horn can be a solid help, both on the mana front, but more importantly on the card draw front.Topping up on mana reducers with Urza's Incubator and suddenly your bombs become far more affordable.

depending on meta Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast are both excellent choices, a great answer to Cyclonic Rift, any number of counterspells, tutors, draw spells and a sometimes just a 1 mana removal on a threat.

Patriarch's Bidding can keep you in the game after a boardwipe.

A couple of suggestions on things to cut, if you decide to add any of the above to your list:Dark Impostor the 6 mana activation costs alot of tempo, in your color identity you will probably be pressed on mana in most games.

Vampire Nighthawk Simply because it doesn't do quite enough to altar the boardstate in a significant way.

Heirloom BladeBlade of the Bloodchief These two equipments, you are having a token centric build with a few combo pieces, these equipments are gonna cost you tempo.

I would cut Kindred Boon aswell, you are in black and white, you don't need to be afraid of things going in the grave, there is plenty of options for getting them back out again! :)

Mana Echoes

Patriarch's Bidding

Path of Ancestry

Murmuring Bosk

Also i would consider Ramos, Dragon Engine as a 5c commander because he can ramp you into a ton of walls suprisingly fast

I like this idea! Kind of a 5 color doran, which opens up great red and blue stuff

Also the new kindred spells are pretty boss here

Kindred Dominance

Kindred Discovery

Kindred Boon

Kindred Charge

Kindred Summons

Mana Confluence

Grand Coliseum

Cavern of Souls is an absolute powerhouse here if you can afford it

Do you want GY recurrence Bloodline Necromancer, Unburial Rites or Beacon of Unrest Kindred Boon is great for tribalalso Jet Medallion since you are majorily black - it is better than Bontu's Monument since you have more black than only creatures - though I would advice you to take up both.Also this guy is a beast Blood Baron of Vizkopa

Instead of Abzan Battle Priest I suggest Whip of Erebos

SaifurCommander I don't usually cast my commander tbh, so I don't really have much to protect him when I do cast him. I used to have Dictate of Erebos in the deck, but removed it because of space issues. However, I want to add it in place of Butcher of Malakir due to efficiency. Doomsday isn't a boardwipe, but a tutorabd even so it's not that good in this deck because I don't have any efficient, game-winning combos.

timothysavage1 I removed Kindred Boon when I got the deck because while it's pretty good, I think I'd rather spend the mana on more spells burn I'll reconsider it.

Last_Laugh I'll add in Boros Charm, but I do need some assistance in making cuts since space feels a tad tight.

stewa238 Urza's Incubator is a tad expensive for me at the moment so I'll hold off on it. I dunno if I have plenty of ramp but so far I'm just struggling on card draw. I'll take those suggestions into consideration. ;)

Thanks for all the advice!

MagicalHacker on Official MagicalHacker Commander List Update ...

3 weeks ago

Welcome, fellow planeswalkers, to the Official MagicalHacker Commander List Update (OMCLU) for Commander 2017!

If you are not aware, I have had lists for commander staple effects for a very long time now, and I have been updating them as new sets are released. Unlike other staple lists that showcase individual cards that are commonly used (which does better anyways), I instead use these lists to show all cards in categories that have proven to be advantageous to have in Commander. More specifically, these categories of staples are ones that answer certain problems a deck could be experiencing, such as having a hard time against control, not being able to play cards in hand quickly enough, or dealing with problematic commanders. (The full list can be found on my profile.)

The purpose of this thread is three-fold:

  1. To raise public awareness for these lists (which I know to be extremely useful since I use them more than literally any other resource online when building decks), especially for the newest additions to them.

  2. To receive feedback about C17 cards that should be added/removed from lists, as I am only human and make mistakes too.

  3. To receive feedback about older cards that should be added/removed from lists. I'm surprised how many times I miss cards when they should be included.

Commander 2017 is up on Gatherer, so its now time to go through the process of updating my decks! (Sorry for the delay, I was working through some technical difficulties.)

Thanks for the suggestion

I do not see the appeal to ' Olivia Voldaren or Drana, Liberator of Malakir.

Furthermore I would suggest Utter End or Vindicate unless you feel that Anguished Unmaking is enough.

Consider a Bojuka Bog for some GY removal

Also consider a Vindictive Lich or Havengul Lich for some recurrence

I would remove Heirloom Blade and put in Kindred Boon - it is so nice against board wipes

This is really cool, but you can't play Kindred Boon in a U/B EDH deck. Maybe you were thinking of Kindred Discovery?
