viperfang4 on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

3 weeks ago

Since we're behind on some edits, I will make a list for tiers 1-2.5:


Prossh, Skyraider of Kher needs moved down to tier 1.5 as discussed.

Kess, Dissident Mage needs the deck changed to represent storm or have both listed like SBT

Tier 1.5:

Animar, Soul of Elements is suspect to be moved to tier 2, as discussed here.

The Gitrog Monster needs moved to tier 1, as discussed here.

Sliver Overlord needs looked at and will likely move here.

Scion of the Ur-Dragon is suspect to be moved to tier 2, as discussed here.

Tier 2:

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice needs to be moved to tier 3 until an archtype and deck is accurately found for her, as discussed here.

Azami, Lady of Scrolls is suspect for tier 1.5, as discussed here.

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician the deck currently listed is wizardball, the previous stasis stax list was not being updated, both are viable options and both need listed like SBT.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord has not been updated in over a year, especially with things like protean hulk unbanning we need to find a new list.

Maelstrom Wanderer is suspect to mvoe to tier 2.5, as discussed here.

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary this list is in the process of being updated, it should be updated to a brostorm paradox/ dramatic sceptor list that can cast it's entire deck off Vizier of the Menagerie. Afterwords it needs reevaluated.

Marath, Will of the Wild I have seen some blood pod versions of this that are better than our current list, it probably needs updated.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter suspect for tier 1.5 based on conversations on the discord, on par with tasigur and GAAIV for control decks.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer can run a grixis storm shell and be a wincon.

Tier 2.5:

Ghost Council of Orzhova While this lsit is good, I think we could find better, seen ones that can run the bomberman infinite with the commander and a mono black like storm deck in the same deck. Likely needs moved to tier 2.

Inalla, Archmage Ritualist needs moved up as soon as the Laboratory Maniacs finish their brew, we missed a lot with her.

Sedris, the Traitor King this list has not been updated in a long time. I wonder if a grixis storm build with unearthed labman would be better or if it just needs updated to stick with kiki reanimator and add nooze.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped has proven himself to be tier 2 and needs moved up.

Xira Arien her storm list by buildingdeck needs moved here or to tier 2.

Look for other outdated lists and decks suggested that could go here.

@thegigibeast I hope this helps.

Well the Burning suns avatar, bishop, etc were on the sheet with that card, so I assume that is confirmation they are all real. Hopefully it was a misreading by us and not an auto-errata like Marath, Will of the Wild.

I get where your coming from, but your logic has a flaw

Yes, you will often pay 5-10 life to activate deluge, and that hurys you a lot in rakdos, you're right about that

However, as far as taking as little damage as possible, the creatures that would hit you during the next combat phase is often FAR more than 5-10 life, and if its not then obviously deluge is worth casting, but 95% of the time the life you pay is much less than the damage you would be taking from say Prossh, Skyraider of Kher,Marath, Will of the Wild and infinite tokens, or a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant token swarm and essentially every aggro edh commander

Point is, if you want to take the least amount of damage possible, deluge helps a lot more with that than you perceive, and if you're too low or cant afford to pay the life, simply dont cast it

snowmaster55555atgmaildotcom on Boonweaver giant combo without a ...

4 weeks ago

So I'm playing a Marath, Will of the Wild combo deck.

1.) I cast Boonweaver Giant with a Goblin Bombardment and a Warstorm Surge on the battlefield.

2.) My opponent destroys the Goblin Bombardment in response with a Slice in Twain.

3.) Boonweaver Giant resolves.

4.) I stack the enter the battlefield triggers so that I get a Pattern of Rebirth on the giant before it zaps itself to death.

5.) I tutor up Karmic Guide with the Pattern of Rebirth, reanimating the Boonweaver Giant.

6.) Repeat step 4.

Question: Do I need to select the target of what Warstorm Surge hits before resolution?

If yes, then I am not able to tutor up a Fiend Hunter to win on the spot.

If no, then I tutor up Fiend Hunter. Then, if I stacked it correctly, with Karmic Guide's Warstorm Surge trigger, combined with Fiend Hunter's, I could exile the Karmic Guide, then shoot the Fiend Hunter, bringing back Karmic Guide and Boonweaver Giant to ultimately tutor up Reveillark to keep going.

If the answer is yes, how (if it even is possible) do I complete the combo to kill my opponent?

It's a weird one but have you heard of the deck-in-a-deck idea? In this case you could shell it into Ramos, Dragon Engine . This would give access to green and white (two of the best colors for +1/+1 counters). You would have access to stuff like Ghave, Guru of Spores, Animar, Soul of Elements, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, or Marath, Will of the Wild. The outlast cards like Abzan Battle Priest gives some combat edge and or evasion.

another adevantege here is you could activate abilities of stolen creatures more easily (chromatic lantern does this too though)

codach on Trostani's Growth Hormones

1 month ago

Excellent choice in commander. I love my Trostani deck located here:

Trostani is surprisingly quite hard to build correctly reason being it does not remove any elements from your deck. For example Marath, Will of the Wild removes token production so all you need to do is ramp, draw cards and make those tokens better. But even failing that you will still have basic tokens to stall with. With Trostani who is still an awesome commander you have to build all elements into your deck.

I recommend taking all small token generators out of the deck and replacing them with quality token generators such as Crested Sunmare or Giant Adephage. Trostani loves big tokens because of her populate. If you were looking to go small tokens, I'd recommend Rhys the Redeemed as your commander. Things like Geist-Honored Monk, Trostani's Summoner, and Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage would be the ones I'd cut first. finally, Cryptolith Rite becomes bad without little creatures so I'd recommend cutting that too if you end up following my advice.

The second thing that trostani struggles with a lot is getting on the board early because big token generators tend to cost a lot of mana - e.g., Desolation Twin. If you're at a table with aggressive decks, you will likely die quickly if you don't drop something early or ramp into your late game quickly. Ramping on trostani is very important. You have a good start, but I would recommend even more. Kodama's Reach is just another Cultivate which is one of the best ramp cards in commander. Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim both put lands in untapped which is huge. Farseek is a nice early ramp that can grab you either a plains or a forest.

luckily, we're in selesnya and selesnya has some of the best land based ramp in the game. Lands like Myriad Landscape, Krosan Verge, and Blighted Woodland are great for ramping. While i'm on the topic of lands, i'd recommend cutting your generic tap-lands such as Tranquil Expanse, Terramorphic Expanse, Selesnya Guildgate, Blossoming Sands, Evolving Wilds, and Graypelt Refuge for just more basic lands. We're not that desperate for color fixing and it's really important to have your lands coming in untapped.

I'll finish up by making a few recommendations from my deck and some cuts i recommend as well. First, Emmara Tandris is a pretty weak card for how expensive she is. Think about what else could go in the 7cmc slot - e.g., Giant Adephage. Intangible Virtue probably isn't good enough for its minimal +1/+1. I'm not sure what your budget is, but Archangel of Thune is an absolute monster in this deck. Darien, King of Kjeldor is sweet too because if you ever take damage, you immediately get all your life back from the tokens coming out if trostani is in play. I recommend swapping out your Green Sun's Zenith for a Chord of Calling because you can instant speed in a Felidar Sovereign right before your turn to just win the game if no one has removal or is tapped out. If you don't have $60 to fork over for a Doubling Season, Primal Vigor can be a nice budget option. The downside to vigor is that it helps everyone at the table but %99 of the time it will be the most useful to you. It's also even better if you know no one in your play group plays a token/counters deck.

You mentioned in your description that this deck is weak to board wipes. I have also had problems with board clear, and I like how you've tried to combat them with cards like Heroic Intervention, Loxodon Hierarch, and Dauntless Escort. I'll have to play test some of these to see how they work.

I am by no means an expert of Trostani. I have been brewing her for a while now, but I bought my trostani deck only about a month ago. So, please take everything I say with a grain of salt. Good luck and feel free to message me with any questions you have.
