Spirits on Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH

3 days ago

Hey bushido_man96,

Thanks for the suggestion. Sword of the Animist is dominant in this format,

As of just checking now, I'm 0.08 under budget. Sword of the Animist is $2.81, so would need to cut (if I do 1 for 1 instead of downgrading a bunch of other cards), $2.81 - $0.08 = $2.73. Graveborn Muse, Noxious Gearhulk, or Mindslaver are the only possible cuts.

I would probably cut the Scrap Trawler $1.62 or Go for the Throat $1.55 = $3.17 - $2.73 = $0.44 to replace 2 cards. Price of Fame is $0.25, leaving $0.19, which could be Costly Plunder $0.15 or Acidic Slime $0.24 (puts me a bit over).

I was also hoping to get a Hex Parasite in here, but he's $1.76 a little pricey, might need to get both these in. Also have Wanderer's Twig, Traveler's Amulet, or Golgari Keyrune could look at for cheaper ramp, but not as dominant as the Sword of the Animist.

Hey there! Sen Triplets used to be one of my favorite decks to play, for a 2HG tournament here might be some cards that can be of use. I would definitely recommend Paradox Haze for one of them as you would then be able to take control of both players hands. Cascading Cataracts is also a good untility land that can be used to filter all your colorless mana to use your opponents spells. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study can help you get some mass card draw so you can support your buddy. Memnarch although quite high on the cmc cost can also allow you to help protect your buddy from threatening stuff. Hostage Taker is also quite great as well as Notion Thief to prevent your opponents from doing stuff. Spell Queller also has some hidden strategy as you can flash it in to stop your opponent kill it on your turn and the card will be able to cast for free for you.


Since you are also in the protection route, running all the cheap interaction spells are optimal. Delay, Swan Song, Remand, Render Silent, Silence, Mission Briefing, Spell Pierce, Mana Leak, Snap are all great cards that can be abused with Sen.

You can also run a Academy Ruins + Mindslaver to lock out one person. As Foretold can also go pretty crazy if you use it in conjunction with Paradox Haze. You can also copy it with Copy Enchantment, Estrid's Invocation, or Clever Impersonator to tic up the counters a lot to start free casting a lot of things.


Lastly for Sen mana is important, you have plenty of the decent ones, so here might be some others you can consider. Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, Thought Vessel, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Worn Powerstone, Coldsteel Heart.

I hope that gives some insight and helps!

goldlion I would be honored to partake in play testing the deck, I actually been brainstorming the deck even when I am working LOL! It's such an interesting build that is unique, jank, and no one had ever followed through making it before.

Hmm, imo SynergyBuild I would still consider keeping it an Abzan build, while yes Meren is great (I love her to death, I rebuilt her 5 times LOL), having access to white is a great boon and there are other "tempts" in this color. The reason I would still include white is mainly for the anti cards like Teferi's Protection, Silence, Faith's Reward, and Second Sunrise. These cards really help in a "lands matter" build.

Going off on tangent, an alternative commander that does well with the unique "play style" would be Muldrotha. In this variant, a "forced search" build abusing Mindslaver, as you can keep on doing this over and over with Muldrotha seems pretty viable in my mind.

Hope that gives some insight, what do you think Abzkaban, NeverCloud, Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, Heliogabale, Nrdman?

Thank you notorius-B.D.A.W.G,

Siren Stormtamer counters a spell or ability that targets you or a creature you control. Since Bojuka Bog and most other grave removals like Tormod's Crypt are targeted abilities, you can counter those and then replay Siren Stormtamer next turn. In addition it can counter stuff like Mindslaver an opponents Treachery or any kind of x-cost burn spells, pretty useful card.

I appreciate the kind words goldlion! I was also thinking that if you want to be really evil, you could run Mindslaver and/or Emrakul, the Promised End and then use an instant speed 'may search' ability (like Path to Exile) or their own search abilities against them. Though that avenue of attack might be a bit too janky....

darkone8 on Muldrotha

2 weeks ago

I sorta see what you're doing with the deck, but a little bit more of a description of the deck's strategy would be nice. My suggestion would be to run more mana rocks like Sol Ring and Fellwar Stone to help make your mana base consistent. Also, I'm curious as to why you're playing Akroma's Memorial. It doesn't seem to do much for the majority of the creature base in your deck, seeing that they're elves. Also, some funny things that you can do with Muldrotha, if you are looking for combos are Mindslaver lock, especially with the number of mana dorks you're running, and some form of Entomb + Exhume/Reanimate/Animate Dead to cheat out your Dark or Blightsteel Colossuses.

Looking at the price tag I am assuming that for this deck your not really on a budget. Since your plan by what it seems is to abuse Daretti's ability I would recommend a sub theme of stax into your deck list. The reason being is to prevent your opponents from being allowed to do anything while you protect yourself.

Here might be some cards that can be considered:

Ward of Bones, Mana Vault, Metalworker, Goblin Welder, Scrap Mastery, Memory Jar, Scrap Mastery, Alhammarret's Archive, Crucible of Worlds, smokestacks, Nevinyrral's Disk, Scrap Trawler, Winter Orb, Mindslaver, Mana Web, Static Orb, Tangle Wire, Torpor Orb

There are quite a bit, if ya need help refining let me know! Hope this helps!

Decrepit_Angel on [Primer] Colored Mana is for the Weak

Wurwilf: I forgot to mention that even with the drop in presence of Ad Nauseam decks due to all the meta changes in the semi-recent past, storm/solitaire combo decks are one of the harder decks for this list to deal with and in those matchups if Mindslavering them is not an option; hitting them with Annihilator 4, and almost always 12 damage as the only creatures that most storm decks play are mana dorks is usually enough to solve the issue of them just casting Ad Nauseam on your end step and winning on their turn so this is another reason for haste outlets such as Haunted Cloak. I have found that 3 of an effect is usually ideal for something like that and Haunted Cloak costs a relatively low amount to cast and equip, as well as giving other decent abilities (who cares if the storm player blocks with a Deathrite Shaman or Birds of Paradise if Kozilek has trample?).
