Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist Discussion

SirupyTuna on Cats & Rats

1 month ago

After several test games and a round of kitchen table magic with my buddies, this neck has been updated to Version 2.0.

I got rid of Ogre Slumlord (not enough value and the synergy was too weak) but added another copy of Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist because that cat alone has won me a couple of games - wow!

I also took out Genesis Wave is favor of Phyrexian Arena because the boost was needed earlier in the game rather than later.

Lastly I added Golgari Charm because Crypt Rats is wasted if you're only going to fire it for X=1 in the early game. Plus, Golgari Charm's other options may just save your game.

All in all I'm really happy with the deck even though it still needs more polishing. The concept is by no means unbeatable, but there are a lot of fun interactions and I have a few times managed to completely turn a game on its head by getting Nacatl War-Pride into play with Lightning Greaves and thus killing off what looked like certain death just one turn away.

I'll be testing out a version of the deck featuring Black Cat over Adaptive Automaton, but am as of yet undecided.

Spirits on Arahbo, Budget... for Cats EDH

Hi TzickyT,

Hopefully you find some of this useful.

The reason why Lost Leonin and Archangel of Thune/Spike Feeder work consistently is the tutoring. Under budget constraints you must include Eladamri's Call it's the best tutor, and it's only a few $'s. Also you must include Congregation at Dawn.

Wild Nacatl has no place in this deck, hes a 2/2 (at best) for with no Lifelink, he doesn't provide us anything, and is a dead draw late game.

Did you start with the Arahbo, Roar of the World C17 Deckbox "Feline Ferocity"? If so play the Mirari's Wake, it works excellent with White Sun's Zenith. Also include the Bloodforged Battle-Axe.

Key to the City makes no sense, you have little/no recursion, just use Expedition Map to tutor Rogue's Passage and perhaps include a Crop Rotation. Instead use Trample, by including Behemoth Sledge also gives additional Lifelink.

Taj-Nar Swordsmith is a great budget equipment tutor for Skullclamp, Swiftfoot Boots, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, late in the game he can tutor the Grafted Exoskeleton as well. If Bloodforged Battle-Axe is in, certainly Kemba, Kha Regent can make her way in.

Pride Sovereign is decent as well, I've been testing him out at the moment because of his speed (slow).

Since you'll be slower, can use reset cards like Divine Reckoning.

Canopy Vista would be good with the number of basic lands available. Fortified Village too.

Condemn is a good budget removal too (situational).

Oreskos Explorer can replace Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip if you don't have her already.

I'm not sure Recycle is right, feels wrong. If anywhere you are going to splurge some cash would be on a Sylvan Library, but Recycle isn't right.

I would include a Sunbond doubles your chance of drawing / tutor into Spike Feeder Infinite Life combo anyway. It's good with the other lifelink Loxodon Warhammer the Lifelink cats, Archangel of Thune etc. Since you tutor less, have more probability of drawing into it. If you do draw it, just tutor the Spike Feeder.

Green Sun's Zenith without a Dryad Arbor isn't as good, because it loses its Modularity as a Mana Ramp & Tutor. There are still some targets though like Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist or Spike Feeder or Prowling Serpopard, etc. Still ok, just not as good.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a little high mana cost, but it's a decent draw engine.

Rampant Growth is a good cheap tutor.

The primary win-con is tutor Lost Leonin + Double strike (Berserk, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Duelist's Heritage) etc. Secondary to that try and Lifelink and Felidar Sovereign.

I wouldn't use 1 for 1 like Broken Bond, maybe just put Return to Dust it can exile annoying Indestructible Planeswalkers too, and if you Sorcery cast its 2 for 1.

Eldritch Evolution is another cheap tutor I've been toying around with.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip feels too slow for me.

Some ideas to consider anyway. +1.

Possibly add Glory-Bound Initiate and Champion of Rhonas to abuse exert

701.37b A permanent can be exerted even if it's not tapped or has already been exerted in a turn. If you exert a permanent more than once before your next untap step, each effect causing it not to untap expires during the same untap step.

Few others to consider

Den Protector really good recursion warrior

Hidden Dragonslayer removal warrior

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist control opponent attack and blocks

Samut, Voice of Dissent really good overall warrior and gives haste

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed burns casters like crazy

Gilt-Leaf Winnower removal one a warrior

You want an aggressive commander and a non-aggressive commander? That's a bit... broad, but I'll try. I'll stick with Selesnya since that's the only restriction.

Good aggressive commanders are Rhys the Redeemed for tokens (and can be mono-W or mono-G if you want), Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith for voltron, and Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist for a flexible commander that can be anywhere in between. Ezuri, Renegade Leader heads a powerful elfball strategy, and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is good for stompy or Eldrazi. Sram, Senior Edificer is another good voltron commander, and either of the Odrics (Odric, Lunarch Marshal or Odric, Master Tactician) work for mono-white.

For non-aggressive commanders, Gaddock Teeg is a powerful stax piece. Selvala, Explorer Returned and Karametra, God of Harvests are both really good and open ended, anywhere from group hug to enchantress to turbo-ramp. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is good for control, and either of the Thalias (Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben) or Hokori, Dust Drinker work for prison/stax. Druids is sneaky good with Seton, Krosan Protector, and mono-green has some good lands decks with Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Titania, Protector of Argoth.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Hi SynergyBuild,

I definitely use that strategy. I have many, many creature tutors, which I use to pull Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist. Because enchantments are harder to tutor for me, and I always tutor Sylvan Library or Duelist's Heritage or Greater Good (unless situation calls for Aura Shards or Rancor), Dueling Grounds wouldn't get tutored. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist does the same thing (and better, doesn't restrict my attack), so if I have a Rhonas the Indomitable or an enabler like Silverblade Paladin I'm still free to attack with everyone.

I really need Sterling Grove back in for an additional Sylvan Library tutor. I only played 3 cat games this past FNM/Weekend, and didn't find I needed the Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist in any of those. So I think it can be situational. For example, vs. Kess, Dissident Mage or Mizzix of the Izmagus it's actually going to hurt me. There was a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight but was able to take that down with infect/doublestrike before it would get aggressive. If I do (rarely) get some cat tokens going, they wouldn't be effective either.

I'm adding to my maybeboard for now, have to think about it more. Initially I don't need the duplication of Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist ability, whose killing a 6/5 first strike attacking cat. At CMC3 it is quite viable though. Hmm. Great suggestion, under consideration. Still feel more creature tutors is still better as it gives Modularity to pull different solutions/offense (like an Eldritch Evolution or something)

[[card:Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist]] --> Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist

[[Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist]] --> Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist

The "card:" prefix seems to produce a bad link. I'm not sure a prefix was ever intended for cards, so it may simply be pointing to something other than the card when it sees a prefix. Were there any other specific cards you were having problems linking too?
