Memnarch Discussion

(Really I should just cut Staff of Nin for Training Grounds but staff is a bit of a pet card of mine as I have an alter done by one of my favorite podcasters and it does work as a combo finisher. Might have to cut it though because TG is just so damn efficient in Memnarch...)

First of all, I really appreciate the feedback! Your insight into Rings of Brighthearth vs Power Artifact is hugely helpful. I hadn't given thought to how much easier it would be to get Rings out. In thinking about swapping those two, including Trophy Mage seems a good move for more tutor.

As to the Memnarch issue, that particular problem of wanting fun cards like Memnarch or Walking Ballista, which take advantage of infinite mana, when you have Urza is something I keep struggling with. Though, I wonder if a card like Intuition or Finale of Revelation might not work out better? Finale is less mana efficient certainly but it also doesn't give opponents the opportunity to draw into answers. The Flashback is very appealing though, but it seems once the deck hits infinite mana thats game over no matter what.

I'm not sure how I skipped over Rhystic Study but that oversight has been corrected!!

tshelt Haha nice! That's a super rad deck! It would probably be really good against mine tbh hahaha

And thanks, glad you like my build! It's gone through a lot of different iterations. There is definitely a big upside to Memnarch in that he is a mana sink for all the ramp I want in a deck like this and that he is an great finisher for an infinite mana combo. That being said, there is also the downside that he is instantly targeted by a lot of players which can make it hard to get off the ground especially as he is very mana hungry. You also have a bit of a toss up between the two commanders in that with Thada Adel, Acquisitor you don't know who has what before you look but with Memnarch you know what you are getting; the downside to that, of course, being that it costs way more and with Mycosynth Lattice Thada can get anything anyway.

I deferentially like both as commanders though, I've even been toying around with the idea of running Thassa, Deep-Dwelling at the helm of the deck to get even more value off of my ETB tutors and creatures with abilities they tap to activate. I haven't pulled the trigger on the idea yet but I might try it the next time I run this deck out and see how it goes, I figure that the very least I'll avoid some of the hate and at best I'll be tutoring for things at minimum twice off of every ETB creature tutor.

McToters Thanks for the comments and the upvote! Rona's definitely not going to be Tier 1 anytime soon, but if you play in a more casual kind of competitive meta this can slug it out with the big boys. I'm not sure if I can really take credit for the Parasite-Scriptures combo (I can't be the first one who thought of it), but I didn't netdeck it, that's for sure. I don't think many people are trying something that obscure.

All of your cards are possible includes! Memnarch is okay as a stand-alone card, but if I were running a more cutthroat infinite combo list I'd probably be more inclined to include it. Blinkmoth Urn could definitely be a good way to get more mana, but I'm always nervous about giving my opponents potential advantage, too. As for Tunnel Vision, an earlier version of this deck focused a lot more on self-mill with cards like that and Mesmeric Orb, but I found I was milling my own lands too often and getting mana-screwed because of it. I'd rather draw more cards than mill myself, actually, so Tunnel Vision might be a little overkill. Good idea though!

This is a an awesome list and very creative! Not familiar with playing with or against Rona but I have some thoughts. Memnarch fits the artifact the and could work well here. Since the deck is graveyard heavy what are your thoughts on using Tunnel Vision as a tutor? Puts a lot of cards in your graveyard and then gets you to a card you need. I would personally include Blinkmoth Urn in a heartbeat for additional mana ramp.

That Parasite-Scriptures board wipe is hawt. I've never heard or seen that before. Kudos to you if you figured that one out on your own.

Cool title reference also +1

You should meet my friend Memnarch . He's expensive but he plays especially nice around a Mycosynth Lattice

If you ran Illusionist's Bracers you could get copies of Memnarch ’s abilities. Also, Aphetto Alchemist and Illusionist's Bracers combo with any mana rock / dork to create infinite mana. Once you have infinite mana, as you know that’s game over as everyone’s boards are now yours.
