Living Wish Discussion

ultima333 on Azusa - Land Rush

Made some minor adjustmants-

Removals: Living Wish , Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , and Mirrorpool

Additions: Finale of Devastation , Blast Zone , and Prismatic Vista

Living Wish was removed to be more compliant with the general EDH rules - even though my playgroup uses "Open Wishes" and lets it grab from our collection, I wanted this deck to be more 'pure' and so I could potentially play it in a LGS without issue. Oran-Rief and Mirrorpool - were replaced with the fifth fetch, and a more useful utility land - neither of which come into play tapped, which will hopefully improve performance slightly.

I cannot stress how good fetchlands are in this deck - if I could, I would run closer to 8. But alas, monocolor only has 5 to work with.

Finale of Devastation is curious - I'm not quite sure whether it will be worse or better than Green Sun's Zenith yet. It's one mana more, but it can grab from graveyard, and if I have enough mana (12 or more) act as a finisher - potentially a 22/22 Kozilek haste-swing plus massive buffs to whatever else I have. Time will tell, but there's no reason to not just run both.

HappyMilkXD on The Actual Weirdest Cards

1 month ago

I was looking for the wierdest Magic cards in Google, and stumbled with this magnificence. But I also think you're missing some good stuff:
- Chaos Orb : demands physical interaction with the game
- Shahrazad : the card that created
- Divine Intervention : 8 mana to just tie
- Floral Spuzzem :
- Goblin Game
- Scrambleverse
- Furnace of Rath
- Shared Fate

And then there are the cards that make you play cards from outside the game:
- Mastermind's Acquisition
- Burning Wish
- Coax from the Blind Eternities
- Cunning Wish
- Death Wish
- Research
- Glittering Wish
- Golden Wish
- Karn, the Great Creator
- Living Wish
- Ring of Ma'ruf
- Spawnsire of Ulamog

Hope any of these cards work for your list!

Oh, now I understand why you have some expansive cards like Three Visits ! You play online! Of all the players that I asked if I could search in my sideboard with Mastermind's Acquisition , all said «yes», but I never actually tutored outside a deck's library. I asked to see what kind of players they were and it was also to do some politics (to make them wonder what I'd tutor and «get in their head») lol. I asked a judge for the «layers» and was told those rules are in the section 613 of the comprehensive rules. I went only for the part intriguing us. From what I understood, you do have to check the order of the cards when their continuous effects contradict each other. They call that the «timestamp order», but if 2 layers enter at the same time, «dependancy» is checked. Usually the last effect «wins».

You could add some wheel effects in your game to make it harder for your opponents to find responses once you have set a winning combo. Many are in the chaos list I posted, like Teferi's Puzzle Box .

Since a couple of your cards change life, I would have suggested to add Platinum Emperion , but you wrote that you are avoiding pillowforting in this deck. It could be something to tutor with Living Wish , Death Wish (and regain the life lost with Tainted Sigil or Children of Korlis ) or Mastermind's Acquisition in your sideboard if you're in deep shit? haha

Due to the interesting new creatures I'm playing with the idea of running some combination of these cards Glittering Wish Living Wish Mastermind's Acquisition to have access to creatures other than Deepglow Skate

Keep in mind that my meta is mostly 70-80% and the fastest deck besides Captain Sissay that I see is Hermit Druid which isn't a fan of my removal. He tends to try to wait for others to bait my exiles before going off

Worst case scenario I take the wishes out because of a lack of good enough creatures to run. Riftsweeper alone is pretty compelling for at least one low cost wish. Though

Thanks for comments Apollo_Paladin , appreciate it.

  1. I'm not big fan of Ambush Commander , as you said he is kinda mana heavy. He might be ok for sideboard to get with Living Wish but i cant think of case when i would want to search him.

  2. Jagged-Scar Archers sure should be in sideboard to deal with flying creatures. About Wirewood Pride , maybe. I personally rather have more elf's and faster ramp.

  3. Totally agree with Throne of the God-Pharaoh , i will add one to my deck.

  4. I think i have card draw handled, you suggested Sylvan Messenger , i have similar effect Lead the Stampede i was considering messengers but chose stampede instead because i have some non-elf creatures. And about Vanquisher's Banner instead i have Beast Whisperer , i think either will work but i prefer elf instead of artifact.

What do you think of Runic Armasaur as a draw engine for the deck? Also I was thinking to include a Living Wish package since may playgroup is fine with it, including some finishers in case I draw it lategame without gas, some hatecards for certain decks, some value cards some cycling cards in case I have humility out. For lategame finishers I was thinking of Tidespout Tyrant, as it easily produces infinite mana with some positive rocks, Muldrotha, the Gravetide, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter or Sun Titan as big value cards. For specific hate cards Faerie Macabre,Notion Thief or Spirit of the Labyrinth, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Dosan the Falling Leaf or Grand Abolisher, Hex Parasite or Vampire Hexmage against teferi, animar or marvyn and Phyrexian Revoker Other options include Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Snapcaster Mage ,Reclamation Sage, Spellseeker, Gilded Drake, Seedborn Muse, ... the list goes on. The thing is that living wish gives you the option to have all those creatures available with the wish, but you don't need to stuff your deck with cards that hurt of adnaus and are horrible with humility. In case of humility beeing tutor target no1. in all your games you could consider adding Street Wraith to avoid the wish beeing dead So please tell me what you think of the with and the dinosaur!

Ok going to bring up the whole sideboard thing since none of you seem to know what you're talking about.

You do not get a sideboard in edh. HOWEVER. If you are playing WISH cards, like Burning Wish or Living Wish in your deck, you need 10 cards that you can wish from. Why? Because you cannot go rummaging through your binders. THAT is the "10 card sideboard" people talk about.

sylvannos on Most Consistent Early Turn Win

1 year ago

I have to agree with Murpy: Academy-Belcher (or the People's Cannon) is probably the fastest deck with the most consistent turn 1 kill in any format. Although, I prefer the version which uses Land Grant (find Tropical Island so Goblin Charbelcher always kills) and Living Wish (grab Tolarian Academy out of the sideboard).

@StonedJesus: lmao kid you're not even using Tolarian Academy, Tinker, Voltaic Key, moxen, Black Lotus, or Time Vault. The fuck outta here with that tryhard casual bullshit.
