Man-o'-War Discussion

epajula on Looking for a Good Deck ...

2 weeks ago

Eldrazi Displacer, Roon of the Hidden Realm, Mistmeadow Witch, Crystal Shard, Dissipation Field, AEther Adept, Reflector Mage, Man-o'-War, Tradewind Rider, Vedalken Mastermind, AEtherize, AEtherspouts, Evacuation, Cyclonic Rift, Devastation Tide, Deputy of Acquittals, and Brago, King Eternal are just a few suggestions.

Be wary of Eldrazi Displacer because he requires colorless mana to activate. Sounds like a cool idea with a bunch of ETB effects on your creatures so if your opponent is creature lite you will still be effective. Lavinia of the Tenth would be a cool general that would be obnoxious to go against. Especially against a deck that utilizes a bunch of mana dorks. Also good for the mirror match. Deadeye Navigator is a total must. I know someone else mentioned him, but if you do get him on the board he's so broken. Another idea would be to play Mimic Vat having recurring creatures of you or your opponents sounds legit.

abby315 on LF: Aluren EDH pieces H: ...

Building another EDH deck, this time it's Elves PLUS Prossh, put together! (Quiet list plug: do you like FREE STUFF?) Need help with some of the missing cards. The >$1 ones I need are:

Thrasios, Triton Hero
Tymna the Weaver
Enlightened Tutor
Arcane Denial
Vampiric Tutor
Krosan Grip
Silence
Swan Song
Fellwar Stone
Paradox Engine
Noxious Revival
Isochron Scepter

I am especially anxious to get the two partner commanders!

I also need some dinky stuff like: Dream Stalker, Parasitic Strix, Man-o'-War, Prismatic Lens , Xantid Swarm and Veteran Explorer.

Here's my binder. There's only a few things in there I'd be reluctant to trade for the above pieces.

Some notable things for trade: foil MM3 Damnation, Glimpse the Unthinkable, FTV Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Glen Elendra Archmage, etc. All the Masterpieces are correctly marked: Torrential Gearhulk, Combustible Gearhulk, No Mercy, and Attrition. There's value up and down in there, I promise!

Comments below or on my binder please!

TY in advance!

Hey I hope you're still working on this! You commented on my deck and it took me a bit to get back as well. I know I +1'd a long ass time ago lol

Since you are going all creatures: you need to find ones that fulfil roles of noncreature spells.

Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Coiling Oracle, maybe Ondu Giant. You have Solemn Simulacrum and Birds of Paradise which are fantastic. There's really expensive ramp too, like Bloom Tender and Lotus Cobra

Phyrexian Ingester, Duplicant, Flametongue Kavu, Inferno Titan... Reclamation Sage, Ainok Survivalist, Manglehorn, Woodfall Primus... Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk...

I could not agree more with hintseeker's first point about drawing cards and utilizing colorless creatures. That's the meat n potatoes of the deck

I like Shaman of the Great Hunt; but not everybody does! It can chug along and turns all your creatures into pseudo-vampires. What's not to like? Thrasios, Triton Hero has a similar draw ability. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is rad. Prime Speaker Zegana can be huge. Vizier of the Menagerie is a cool new card. Elvish Visionary and Wall of Blossoms just went back into my deck. I don't run Sages of the Anima since I'm running noncreature spells I want to draw, but it would be great in here once you've decided you've played enough lands. Filter them out for multiple creatures per draw. Oracle of Mul Daya is a thing too, and Magus of the Future

To put Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron into perspective; imagine the payoff of untapping all your lands after casting multiple creature spells and just keep going. Now bounce one of them with Shrieking Drake/Dream Stalker/Man-o'-War, cast again, keep going. With enough +1/+1 counters on animar: Temur Sabertooth can bounce them for infinite mana and infinite animar counters (Cloud of Faeries needs lands like Izzet Boilerworks/Gruul Turf/Simic Growth Chamber). Deadeye Navigator can also gain infinite mana via "Flicker" effect. Lastly, Tidespout Tyrant bouncing any two colorless and/or land-untapping creatures you control goes infinite. Whether it's eldrazi or morph doesn't matter. Ancestral Statue alone bounces itself into an infinite animar

Obviously I've given way too many suggestions. Choose what works for you and your budget. Also every playgroup/meta is different.

You have some bangers in here like Maelstrom Wanderer, Craterhoof Behemoth, Phyrexian Metamorph, etc. Anger and Ogre Battledriver are great for an aggro deck like this

Cards I would take out: Ancient Silverback, Enclave Elite, Frontier Guide, Hanweir Lancer, AEther Membrane, Primal Clay, Young Wolf, etc. Instead of running something like Grazing Gladehart; invest in a Purphoros, God of the Forge mwahahaha

Above all, have fun! Cheers!

the.beanpole I think I'm going to use Reflector Mage instead of AEther Adept, not Man-o'-War. Don't know how I forgot about RM. Kor Cartographer is useful. What do you think I should replace?

Zero1911 I agree, Tidal Force is a bit high on the curve, and I would rather it be ETB instead of each upkeep.

Winterblast on Aluren Allure

A deck that uses the effect of alluren best would aim at getting the infinite loop with Parasitic Strix and Cavern Harpy. It can be tutored up from nothing by casting Recruiter of the Guard, who gets Man-o'-War. Of course Aluren should be 4 times in a deck based on the card ;)

Ixidron is fun! Aside from creature types, Man-o'-War is strictly better than AEther Adept. Kor Cartographer is a good bounce target as well.

@SkeletonAssembly Resonator is already in there. I thought about playing Cloud and Lightform, but since I don't run a lot of ways to bounce my own creatures(I run Reflector Mage over Man-o'-War and no Echoing Truth) meaning that Manifestet instants and sorceries would just stay 2/2's. I couldn't use them ever. Thanks for the upvote :) I am still working in it, trying to tune a Stax Free version, and then figure out a stax module to upgrade it for more competetive playgroups.
