ShreddedByCrows on Offenza is the Best Defenza

1 month ago

Lots of subthemes you got there, that's some interesting challenge. All in all, you're running way too many high-costed cards for a Commander that generally revolves around more of an aggressive strategy. I'll further provide you a personalized list of adjustments, trying my best to keep it at the lowest budget as possible.

Very first thing, 37 lands is too much for an Anafenza deck imo. You can easily go down to 35/34 in order to feel more proactive. That being said, the mana base of your decklist is pretty unstable, and you'll need better mana rocks, around 5/6 good rocks should do it helping you stabilizing.

The second thing to bring up is that you play loads and loads of creatures with actually specific abilities that don't always combine altogether well. Like, for example, in which way would Slimefoot, the Stowaway help Anafenza, the Foremost being consistent? My answer, without another kind of appreciation than logic: not any single one. If you need cheap legendary to keep it up with your theme, there are better options, but remind that this was only a little example.

Finally, you lack reactivity because of very few instant/flash spells. It's not as necessary as some think, but still have a way to protect dutifully your creatures is a key for aggro/midrange decks in EDH. Being able to answer what your opponents bring up to the tape is moreover essential, and I don't see enough removals/tricks in there.

So, let's take a closer look from now on. I'll make some different categories starting with the cuts to make it easier to read.

1.) Back to 100 cards:

2.) Cheap Improvements:

2.1.) Mana Rocks:

2.2.) More removals:

Those are the classical ones you surely know. They are easily affordable and would give your deck a small lift at controlling the board state.

2.3.) Better Legendaries:

  • Mikaeus, the Lunarch > not the cheapest already, but really effective, almost a staple for your deck style

  • Hope of Ghirapur > underrated card, does a lot, insane with recursion to lock down a combo player at low cost

  • Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit > certainly a staple / and somewhat a reason to get rid of the token subtheme which is maybe a bit too much

  • Syr Faren, the Hengehammer > also certainly a staple / aggressive, good interactions with Anafenza, better than lords already in your deck

  • Kethis, the Hidden Hand > Yawgmoth's Will for legendaries? I'll take that. It could also be a nice alternative commander when you face more control-ish decks you're stuck against, enabling you to have an efficient late game on its own once made your commander.

  • Mangara of Corondor > Legendary creature which works as a nonsituational removal. Really good. Even if you can't always activate it when it hits the table, your opponents have to get rid of it using their hand resources and you make 1 for 1.

  • Masako the Humorless > Underplayed card / can be a game-changer / and it's a legendary creature.

2.4.) Voltron Outlet:

2.5.) Other cool cards to look at:

3.) Medium Budget Improvements:

3.1.) Mana Rocks:

3.2.) Even more removals:

3.3.) Legendaries' Staples:

3.4.) Neverending Voltron Outlet:

  • Konda's Banner > Yeh, it's a little bit expensive money speaking, but it does everything you're searching for, like a bridge between your Cats, your legends and your Voltron strategy.

  • Skullclamp > staple

3.5.) Cool cards:

4.) Expensive Improvements:

5.) Some other cards you could try (which I mostly haven't, or for which I have a doubt about their efficiency):

Funkydiscogod on Tap my own Stuff: Pioneer

1 month ago

My first thought was Masako the Humorless, but that card isn't in pioneer. Then, I thought about all kinds of fun modern cards that would be fun, but aren't in pioneer.

I would probably cut Oak Street Innkeeper, since their ability doesn't stack, and only protects from targeted sorcery-speed removal, which I think is generally uncommon.

Something like Rallying Roar would let you use all your abilities twice in a turn, so I think you need more untap effects. Maybe instead of Sky Skiff, use Mobile Garrison?

If you could make some room for Blessed Alliance or Collective Effort, you could get some much-needed interaction with the opponent.

Since you have 12 Springleaf Drum-like effects on your creatures and lands, you could run offcolor cards like Jace, Colossal Mind-Mage. I'm not sure that Jace would be the best offcolor card to run, but it's worth realizing that you can. At worst, you can throw it away with your Reckless Racer.

I don't know, I'm just brainstorming.

SakuraStorm on THE WAR IS ON! [EDH] BASANDRA

@king-saprolingThx for you suggestions!

I already ran Angel's Trumpet , Assault Suit , Sunblast Angel , Crown of Doom , Baird, Steward of Argive and Pariah

, but these were replaced, by imo better options or because they tend to draw aggro, or kill my opponents creatures.

- Master Warcraft i think maybe i should give it another chance, though it's a oneshot.

- Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Repercussion tend to make me too much of a threat.

- Masako the Humorless is somewhat antisynegetic, as the deck is more about getting the opponents to beat each other up, rather than doing this myself.

- Godsend as tempting as this card seems in terms of rattlesnake, i think this might be more seen as an offensive tool. Also i'm not really equipmentheavy.

- Righteous Fury same as Sunblast Angel , board whiping is mostly a bad idea.

- Lapse of Certainty not really a fan of this one, personel preferance.

- Null Chamber AWESOME! It's another Nevermore and can be used to gang up on people! I'll definetly figure out a spot for this and it's a "World Enchantment" :D

- Bloodthirsty Blade is already ordered, still no clue what to cut for it.

Funkydiscogod on Masako the Outlaster

I love the idea of this deck. I think Collected Company would be a good fit in this creature-heavy deck.

If only there was a good way to give all your creatures vigilance, you could attack with them, then post-combat tap them to get a counter, and still block with them with Masako the Humorless .

Hej hej,

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.

My Decks at the Moment:

EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)

Oathbreaker: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (Artifacts) Jace, Memory Adept (Milling) Liliana, Death's Majesty (Zombies) Liliana of the Dark Realms (Ramp/Shades) Kaya, Ghost Assassin (Flicker/Token)

Former Decks (I hope I remember all):

EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)

Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.

I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

Love and happyness Corbeau
