Maralen of the Mornsong Discussion

OK, lemme move this over here.

So, you make some valid points, and you're actually quite right, but let me explain.

T1, Swamp, Dark Ritual, Maralen of the Mornsong.

T2, tutor up Lake of the Dead, sac Swamp.

T3, tutor up Boseiju, Who Shelters All, play it.

T4, tutor up Reliquary Tower, play it.

T5, tutor up Ad Nauseam, Swamp, tap Swamp, sac Swamp, tap Boseiju and Tower (7 mana), Ad Nauseam, revealing things like Ornithopter, Memnite, and so on (which could be played at any time during this whole sequence), but you have to get Sickening Dreams and Dark Sphere; play Dark Sphere, play Sickening Dreams, sac Dark Sphere.

There it is - your T5 win in EDH, using Boseiju and Tower. It's possible to do it on T3 by fetching Ad Nauseam and also getting Culling the Weak and Lotus Petal, but this makes it easier, just in case of a Control matchup. You can also get Tormod's Crypt, Feldon's Cane, or Elixir of Immortality to recycle your stuff.

I think Maralen of the Mornsong might see a price jump once people realize how good she is as a commander. I can't think of any other possible sleeper cards, but there will definitely be some price spikes for 3 cmc or smaller legends.

Tiny Leaders will definitely rise is popularity, with some probable WotC special products, but I don't think it'll ever get to EDH or modern level play wise.

I like where you're going with this. I would focus more on global type effects instead of enchantments that target just a single land, creature, etc, but that's just me. I usually play EDH in multiplayer pods so global effects are my route.

Stranglehold, Maralen of the Mornsong with Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is pretty annoying, Price of Glory, stuff like that would annoy the hell outta me lol.

You gotta focus on getting that draw engine going for the entire table via artifacts, spells, or whatever route you decide to go to take full advantage of Nekusar. Lot of suggestions have been made on that already and I've seen games end very quickly with him as a General.

Yeah, I wouldn't run a tri-colored deck for competitive 1v1 not only because it may be slower due to mana fixing but the fact that lands are so expensive. Nekusaur was my first EDH deck and hasn't felt much love since my other adventures and wanted to see how it would fair. Nekusar seemed to be the bane of everyone's existence (with the exception of my group's Maralen of the Mornsong gimmick deck...ugh) in my meta but I can see now that speed is more important than pillowfort especially after playing against non-aggro decks where suddenly 15 cards or so become useless.

Would you lump cards like Anvil of Bogardan in with the same group as Howling Mine? I was on the fence about this one anyhow but it at least forces a discard.

Found some other 2 drop counters that you probably already knew about:

Negate: for noncreature spells

Memory Lapse: which is a weaker Hinder

Confound: to counter Nekusar removal and draws a card

Perplex: while a 3 drop, it is also a tutor for something like Megrim or Chromatic Lantern. It could cause an opponent to discard their hand, though unlikely.

@garrettlstewart Sidisi is a she, but yeah. She's probably the best Mono- commander at the moment if you're not just going for straight combo with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Maralen of the Mornsong (who's a one-trick pony anyway). Good luck with your build and thanks for the +1!

Hello again 6tennis! I tested Maralen of the Mornsong, and I decided not to add it. First of all it costs 2 , which is high for my curve. Secondly, my opponent is the first to benefit of the tutor, because of this they can search their library for a kill spell and prevent me from attacking with my pumped creatures. It is a good card, but not in my deck.

For Earthquake, as I said before, I never have enough mana to feed it, so during playtests, it was always like 2-4 damage, and it was my only play, meaning I can no longer cast spells to boost my Kiln Fiend, for example.

Thanks for the suggestions though, if you have any other ides don't be afraid to drop a little comment!
