TheDevicer on Keranos, EDH

6 days ago

First off, you're one card over the limit because you added Keranos, God of Storms into the decklist itself. Secondly, I feel like I'm obligated to tell you that U/R is hardly one of the most competitive color combinations in EDH. In general, red is pretty weak in EDH because burning away 40 health is unrealistic and red has a very narrow access to the color wheel. That means tutors, enchantment removal, unconditional spot removal, and so on is pretty rare. If you're willing to accept that, U/R can be a fun color combo to play.

Let's talk average converted mana cost for a bit. For a deck with VERY limited ramp options, your average converted mana cost is criminally high. This deck cannot be above 3.0 and my recommendation is to aim for 2.5. EDH revolves primarily around resource management. That means casting spells, generating mana, and drawing cards puts you ahead.

Things I think you need to work on in no particular order:

  • Land Base
  • Combos
  • General Control Suite
  • Card Draw
  • Eliminating Good Stuff
  • Tutors
  • Ramp Options

For now, I recommend you list these cards in your deck:

  • 35 lands


Combo: Pestermite, Deceiver Exarch, Splinter Twin, Kiki, Zealous Conscripts since you seem to like it.

Spot Removal


For now, I'm leaving it at that so I don't overwhelm you. The cards I suggest you cut are:

AEtherling, Frost Titan, Goblin Electromancer, Guttersnipe, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Mogg Fanatic, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Purphoros, God of the Forge, True-Name Nemesis, Thoughts of Ruin, Curiosity, Intruder Alarm, Mind Over Matter, Ophidian Eye, Ral Zarek, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Counterflux, Cryptic Command, Dissolve, Electrolyze, Prophetic Bolt, Reverberate, Rewind, Twincast, Coalition Relic, Gilded Lotus, and Illusionist's Bracers.

I can justify why I'd cut those cards if you you need me to.

Bog Witch isn't modern legal either.

As far as mono-black ramp goes, you're more or less restricted to artifacts.

They're not great options, but that's the price you have to pay if you want to do something your colour isn't good at.

I recommend Hedron Archive and Mind Stone for incidental card draw. Also that Commander's Sphere

TheDevicer on Darkness Eternal

Drana functions best as a low-to-the-ground aggro general that takes advantage of black's general resiliency. An average converted mana cost of 3.84 is criminally low. That thing needs to be a max of something like 2.5 to 3.2. Stuff like Defiant Bloodlord aren't efficient enough. You also lack basic artifact ramp options here. Find roughly 4 cheap rocks based on your curve. I get that you have mana doublers, but at 4 and 6 mana, those things aren't exactly fast. You generally want accelerants to be accessible and relevant. Think Mind Stone, Jet Medallion, etc. For a deck centered primarily on creatures, your boardwipe count is abnormally high. Things like Gatekeeper of Malakir, Phyrexian Obliterator, Bitterblossom, Liliana's Reaver, Hypnotic Specter, etc. could serve as strong aggro options.

TheDevicer on GW for life

An average converted mana cost 3.98?

enter image description here

Let's talk about shaving that down a bit, eh? Chromatic Lantern isn't needed here. You've got solid mana. Commander's Sphere is also expensive. Really no reason for you to need Selesnya Keyrune. Replacements? Mind Stone, Selesnya Signet, and Talisman of Unity.

Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart are a little bit inefficient considering you're playing Green. Maybe go with Skyshroud Claim and Cultivate. Maybe run Karametra, God of Harvests overTwilight Shepherd.

I'm not going to start telling you which creatures to remove since many of them are here because you obviously like them. Still, I urge you to drop some of the costly ones. You would really benefit from stuff like Qasali Pridemage, Saffi Eriksdotter, Survival of the Fittest, etc.

Also, I know it's pretty janky, but if your meta is heavy on craterhoof-fuled alpha-strikes, consider Fog. Oh, and Ghostly Prison is great.
