Kusari-Gama Discussion

TLC55 on soldier army

I would replace the paladin with Precinct Captain(soldier creature type and token generator). Maybe sideboard Archetype of Courage in case you run into another soldier deck. Frontline Medic (indestructible swarm) and Benalish Commander (token generator) wouldn't be bad adds either. Chariot of Victory seems a little redundant if you're running Field Marshal. I'm not an expert when it comes to equipment, but I'd say you want your equipment to focus mainly on p/t buffs and combat abilities. Neko-Te, Fireshrieker, and Kusari-Gama are some of my personal favorites. Cranial Plating and Leonin Bola could be nice as well. Spear of Heliod is some nice handy removal.

Hope this helps!

Commander / EDH xrex479


I recently did a huge overhaul on my commander deck so I wanted to post it up here again. I've recently been playing against a lot of control decks, so I have thrown in cards like Defense Grid and Price of Glory to stop players from having fun on my turn. I put in Repercussion and Kusari-Gama to deal lots of damage to creatures and opponents at the same time as well as the combo with Blasphemous Act. I also added lots more search to the deck to find key items for whatever kind of deck i'm playing against

Hey! I found your deck because you're one of the few Kemba EDH Decks that runs Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I've also been working on a Kemba deck for a few months now and it's really interesting seeing the similarities and differences. If you're interested, take a look: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/puss-in-boots-kittens-in-mittens-cat-tribal-edh/

Maybe we could help each other out?I notice you run Kusari-Gama. How does it work for you? I was reluctant to run it because I was worried it might be slow. My boyfriend runs a Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Voltron deck, which I think has influenced the speed of my deck a great deal. I'm always trying to tune it to be faster, perhaps to the detriment of my deck's performance. I don't see you running Fireshrieker which I think is a HUGE mistake. Did you know double strike will trigger equipment abilities like Sword of Fire and Ice twice? If Kemba has Fireshrieker and Umezawa's Jitte equipped, you can get four counters from a single attack instead of just two.It's cool how you're running tron lands like Urza's Tower ect. Does it work? If so, you may want to add Vesuva. One of the ways I'm getting extra mana is to run Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains so that I get double mana from each "plains" but nobody else does. Does Hour of Reckoning pay off for you? How come you don't run Cathars' Crusade? Aren't you worried about Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite killing your 2/2 cats? Does Serra Ascendant pay off? Does Stonehewer Giant ever feel like a waste for you? Doesn't he get removed before you get to use him? Maybe look into Strionic Resonator it doubles the number of cats Kemba gives you! Have you considered Land Tax?

Post a response in the comments of my decklist! I'd love to "compare notes."

Unfortunately Kusari-Gama does not work the way you want it to. Kusari-Gama is the one dealing damage so the deathtouch from Queen Marchesa is not brought with.

firstorb on The Little Engine That Probably Will

Hey thanks ElementalEd! I was hoping I'd have enough tap effects to stave off getting killed before I can pull of some of the 3+ card combos (Like 7 mana, Spine of Ish Sah, Priest of Yawgmoth, Mirran Spy, with a Disciple of the Vault and/or Altar of the Brood in play, being the most mana intensive combo) but yea, Reconnaissance was one I was not aware of, thanks! Also, spitting out annoying blockers with Nuisance Engine and Myr Propagator, killing with Kiku, Night's Flower, "sort-of-tutoring" with Jar of Eyeballs, Citanul Flute & Merchant's Dockhand are other reasons I have all those tap effects. As for straight up tutors.. I haven't decided yet if they're really needed, but will if they are. I do have a Trophy Mage in there though for digging up some useful artifacts.Arcum Dagsson and Master Transmuter are on my wish list atm, and I will eventually be trading out for more Inspired effects as this deck develops. Muzzio, Visionary Architect looks really groovy, too. Might have to get one. Lol, Caltrops. It's a great card, but is there a Sydri deck without it? I'll put it in when I get one. Probably, lol. With Sydri, Galvanic Genius effects, Kusari-Gama & Thornbite Staff & almost any other card in here will take care of early aggro..along with her effects & Liquimetal Coating to stave off early land drops in case I need to get rude..

There really is a ton going on with this deck, it kind of almost HAS to be played to see it all. Thinking of pulling the 7-8 mill effects though. It does play fairly defensively, but it's answers are usually to kill, exile, remove, or plain just give things Defender to just about anything..if I can get it moving fast enough.

AND, I just realized I should've put all this in the description, lol.

Thanks for checking out my deck though, feedback is always groovy. :)

I was recently working on a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon deck (because I can't be bothered counting all the way to 21 lol) and have thus got a list of budget artifacts that you may want to consider: Sword of the Chosen, Kusari-Gama, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Ring of Xathrid, Lashwrithe, Argentum Armor, Grappling Hook, Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, and the good old Masterwork of Ingenuity.

Your commander has semi-unblockable, so some aren't as useful as they are for Skittles; and alot of them have huge CMC + equip costs (Argentum Armor lol) but they're at least worth a try.

You have a formidable mana base, but with a commander with 6 CMC, you may want to through in a few more mana rocks: Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are expensive but bloody amazing, especially with stuff like Blanket of Night.

Another thing you may want to consider is recursion. Your commander is very expensive, so cheating him out for cheap would be beneficial to your deck. There are some amazing recursion spells, such as Animate Dead. Thirdly, card advantage is king in EDH (shortly after land removal and infect BWAHAHAHAHA ahem) so just through in some Sign in Blood or something.

Lastly (sorry for the immensely long post, I can get carried away): Eldrazi processors. When you cast a spell with Wrexy, I gets exiled and you can't do it again, even if it's amazing. But with the addition of a Blight Herder (which is effectively a 2 mana 4/5) or something and you can cast your enemy's Time Stretch over and over again! Might i suggest Ulamog's Reclaimer and Mind Raker?

warrior_boots on Part-ners: Silas Renn

Thanks for the comments on this and Part-ners: Ravos, SoulCycler. I hadn't considered Kusari-Gama yet. Between Whispersilk Cloak, Whirler Rogue, and Key to the City, I think I am happy with the number of evasion pieces for now. I also have a few other forms of recursion in the deck between Trading Post, Skeleton Shard and Beacon of Unrest, in case Silas doesn't have a clear path to through the battlefield.

Burnished Hart is a tempting target, but I am trying to spread the love between various partners. I may give the Hart to a deck without as many mana rocks (maybe Ravos, Soultender -- recursion in the command zone and the Hart's even from Theros!).

Nevinyrral's Disk seems like a serious consideration as a synergistic boardwipe. What to cut for it, though? Maybe Thada Adel, Acquisitor?
