Medomai the Ageless Discussion
1 week ago
Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming
Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

It can work well, but it's definitely not undefeated. Having versed this plenty, the comp rating is about right.

I basically consider infinite turns a wincon. Every place I've been to play EDH will scoop when someone takes infinite turns or bounces all their lands to hand provided they can explain how they intend to win afterwards. Thanks to Nevermaker often I can't mill out either so if I had lock I'm guaranteed to win. Not to mention if I go infinite/have Cathars' Crusade with a token producer out, e.g. Knight-Captain of Eos, that's a more traditional wincon right there.
I will admit Medomai the Ageless is a little off theme. He's in the deck because of his combo potential with Identity Thief. Identity Thief can also reuse etbs of Cloudblazer and suchlike and as for medomai the deck is designed to get a creature out, protect it then make sure it gets in for combat damage. Still I'll probably play them until I get the combo off one time and them swap them out straight after tbh.

i wrote out a big thing about Wormfang Manta before i relized that you dont stack multiple turns after each other, you just do one at a time. I will say something like Flickerwisp, Restoration Angel, Felidar Guardian, might be a better toolbox include instead of Medomai the Ageless because of how many cards in your deck do create extra turns. What is your main win condition? just beating face long enough with extra turns? i use Altar of the Brood as my main wincon, and it doesnt seem like you have a non-combat way to win if they can prevent you from attacking.

Baral, Chief of Compliance and Boseiju, Who Shelters All might be good. Consider switching out your commander for Medomai the Ageless and building on top of her (Blade of Selves, double strike, extra combat steps, Identity Thief, etc).

Wait, so do none of you realize it goes infinite with Godo, Bandit Warlord, and he even tutors it? Also goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker since the tokens aren't legendary. Also goes infinite with Medomai the Ageless I believe, since the text that he cant attack on extra turns only applies to the one that attacks, and doesnt include the new copies.
I think you guys are fixated too much on the speed of the combo. The problem isn't how FAST it is, it's how accessible it is. Having a 1-card combo with your commander isn't healthy, no matter how you slice it. Not even saying I think it needs to be banned, I just think you guys are thinking about it wrong. Of course there are faster combos, but they typically require significantly more investment or luck.
Also, consider that you get the token whether you attack or not, and the token doesn't get exiled. This means you could just use it to make copies of your commander every turn, and essentially double all of its text, then triple it, etc. Like imagine having this thing on GAAIV, or Elesh Norn, or Meren, or anything really.
I also don't like the reasoning that "because this one thing isn't banned, this won't be banned". I want Deadeye Navigator banned just as much as the next guy, but it has nothing to do with this card. You shouldn't use that as an excuse to not evaluate it.
Point is, I think the design of this card is really horrible. I wish it wasn't being printed, or at the very least would be designed better. Time will tell whether it actually needs a ban or not, but I don't like it regardless.
