Merchant Scroll Discussion

triproberts12 on Sun Quan, Lord of Wufect

I think what this deck wants is some ways to make infinite mana. The one that would be best, in my mind is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . You'll want more mana rocks, although I think you want more anyway, but with that combo, you can power out Blightsteel or proliferate out the table with Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , or Viral Drake . You'll want the typical Muddle the Mixture to grab the combo, and artifact tutors such as Whir of Invention , Fabricate , and Tezzeret the Seeker can get your Engine and Clasp, as well.

Another classic mono-blue combo is Pili-Pala + Grand Architect . I like that one here, since you want to power up your blue and artifact infect creatures, anyway.

Next is Palinchron . You're already running High Tide and Caged Sun , so that's one option to go infinite. Deadeye Navigator can also combo with Palinchron.

A cheaper alternative is the old Pauper Peregrine Drake combo. You use Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , or Displace to blink Drake, Great Whale , or Palinchron with Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , or Salvager of Secrets , returning the instant each time.

To tie all of these combos together, Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor can get the Instants or Whir of Invention .

I think you could use a lot more mana rocks, as well. I would start with Sky Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and Thought Vessel .

I'm also surprised not to see Corrupted Conscience in here. Love that card.

As for cuts, I'm not really sure what Helm of the Host is doing here. It's not your commander you want more of, it's infect creatures. For that kind of mana, you could just kick Rite of Replication . Not really sure what Telepathy is for. If anything, you don't want the table to know when the infect player is a danger. Borrowing 100,000 Arrows has always been a pet card of mine, but making the kind of mana you are, you want X spells. Blue Sun's Zenith , Open Into Wonder , and Pull from Tomorrow are you friends.

Since you're limited on infect creatures, you might want normal clone effects. Phantasmal Image is cheap. Gigantoplasm can copy an infect creature and one-shot people, Quicksilver Gargantuan to a lesser extent. Phyrexian Metamorph is flexible. Vizier of Many Faces has recursion. Stunt Double can surprise the table by speeding up the clock just before your turn. Fated Infatuation comes with card selection. Mirror of the Forebears survives board wipes. Cackling Counterpart , Stolen Identity , Quasiduplicate , and Saheeli's Artistry can all copy creatures multiple times.

Also maybe use cards like Propaganda and Monastery Siege selecting dragons so your opponents get taxed on trying to attack or target you. Then just some good blue card draw like Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora and Windfall to try and dig for your important cards. Also note that you have some decent tutor cards available to you like Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor available to you.

Hello again, Femme_Fatale! Hope all is well. Here is a list of the cards missing their 2018 Judge Promo printing:

Commander's Sphere

Food Chain

Lord of Atlantis

Merchant Scroll

Nin, the Pain Artist

Rhystic Study

Teferi's Protection

Vampiric Tutor

Hi-res art is available on Scryfall here: https://scryfall.com/sets/j18

If there's some way I can help get these into the system let me know. I've tried using the add card function to no avail. I know you mentioned previous promotional printings being a pinch point, but I believe Vampiric Tutor is the only card that this might effect (and there is still room to use "Promo Set for Gatherer" instead, I believe.

Thanks again for the support on this so far!

This is a Mizzix deck. Its main win-con is Reality Spasm + Reiterate to get infinite mana with and then cast Fall of the Titans many times. It also wins by storming off. I also have High Tide to help my combo go off or help with storm. I use Firemind's Foresight , Merchant Scroll , Mystical Tutor , and Invert / Invent to tutor for the combo. I also have some storm cards.

I just saw Muddle the Mixture and it looked like it would be good in my deck, but the only thing I could see that I could potentially cut is Spell Burst . So, what do you guys think Spell Burst or Muddle the Mixture ? Or should I cut something else for Muddle the Mixture

I also just cut Thought Vessel for Helm of Awakening , what do you guys think of this cut?

Hey, High Tide is too good in monoblue with all Islands. Many instants allow you to untap lands and these budget cards are great with Tide: Frantic Search , Turnabout , Rewind , Unwind , Snap .

Having cards that can tutor for Tide are helpful: Mystical Tutor , Spellseeker , Merchant Scroll . If you're able to splurge for one card get Mystical because it's so versatile instant for one mana that can be recurred. Blue Sun's Zenith and Pull from Tomorrow are draw spells which you can put a ton of mana into thanks to Tide.

Budget mana rocks to consider: Sol Ring , Mind Stone , Everflowing Chalice , Fellwar Stone , Prismatic Lens , Wayfarer's Bauble , Gilded Lotus . Thought Vessel is another one and it's very good, but not budget even though it's a damn common. Sapphire Medallion and Baral, Chief of Compliance are not mana rocks, but they're two drops who can reduce the mana cost of most of the rest of the spells which is just as good, but they may be too much for the budget here.

Other cards to consider: Ponder , Brainstorm , Preordain , Serum Visions , Mystic Remora , Mystic Confluence .


High Tide Talrand (Budget) is my $160 Talrand deck. Maybe it can give you some ideas, feel free to use it as inspiration.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

One of the best things about playing a monocolored Commander is you don't have to spend a lot of money on a playable manabase because it can be all basic lands. This lets you splurge a little on other cards :) Cards to consider adding:

High Tide is a card that monoblue can take great advantage of. These cards are good with Talrand because they can be engines to make a lot of Drakes:

  • Frantic Search
  • Turnabout
  • Snap : bounce Archaeomancer back to your hand to then replay it and recur Tide.
  • Capsize : six mana bounce spell that can be repeatable with Tide. Repeatedly bounce Archaeomancer and play it to keep recurring and playing Tide.
  • Peregrine Drake : having a creature who can untap five lands is good with bounce spells.

If you like some of these cards suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.


Daddy_Kaos on Augustin and his Persistent Petitioners [Primer]

I also made a Petitioners deck but, took a more combo heavy approach with Arcum Dagsson as the commander. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/arcums-petitioners/?cb=1548877739

One of the big advantages of playing white is the inclusion of Rest in Peace . This is a great way to get around the Eldrazi Problem. Other benefits to white is Faith's Reward type of effects that allow you to recover from a board wipe.

Also, with out a consistent tutor like Arcum in the command zone, you need to max out on artifact tutors. Reshape and Transmute Artifact both help with that. Merchant Scroll can also help you find the instants you need. Since you are playing blue I have to mention the best card in EDH Cyclonic Rift as an auto include.

For Rocks, I would max out the ones you are allowed to play 2 CMC or less. Chrome Mox , Mana Crypt , Mox Diamond , and all of the 2 CMC ones.
