Mirri's Guile Discussion

Bxbx on Prehistoric Justice 2.0 (#1 Gishath EDH)

3 days ago

So here's the case for including Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile nonetheless:

Sylvan Library is the best carddraw engine you can think of in naya decks. You would include it in almost any green deck that does not have access to blue. It does not let you scry to the bottom BUT it lets you manage what to draw and what to keep on top of your library for the Gisharth Trigger, so that no useless dinosaur ends up in your hand and less utility cards are revealed through the trigger.

It's the same with Mirri's Guile except it's no carddraw.

Hi, deck looks pretty solid so far.

here are a few suggestions:

Maybe you should add even more dinosaurs to get more out of the Gishath trigger. You did not add any of the old 'beasts' and 'lizards' that got errata'd. Check them out here: https://www.hipstersofthecoast.com/2017/09/14-mtg-creatures-erratad-dinosaurs/

You could also consider some of the shapeshifters like Mirror Entity.

Duelist's Heritage is a nice card for multiplayer and it lets Gishath trigger twice. Take out True Conviction, Berserkers' Onslaught or Rage Reflection because I think you only need the extra trigger for Gishath and everything else is 'win more'. And their mana cost is too high.

Cryptic Gateway might be cool to get dinosaurs into play that would otherwise be stuck in your hand. Take out Genesis Wave. Yes, it's a commander allstar, but Gishath does already cheat your permanents directly into play and I'm not a big fan of having cards in your deck that have more or less the same effect as your Commander. The same is true for Lurking Predators.

Scroll Rack is great in this deck as a good 'draw' engine for naya and to manipulate the top of your library for Gishath. It's also a nice way to make use of needless dinsoraurs in your hand. You could take out one of the cards mentioned above.

Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread let you finish the game in combination with the Gishath trigger but they let you control the board as well. That's why I prefer them over True Conviction, Berserkers' Onslaught, Rage Reflection, Aggravated Assault or Overwhelming Stampede.

For Ramp I would consider some of the land fetching sorceries like Kodama's Reach and Cultivate because they thin out the library for the Gishath trigger. They also help colourfixing considering that you're in naya. Maybe take out Drover of the Mighty, Keeper of Progenitus or Exploration (yes, it's a good card but you do not generate that much card advantage to make it really really good)

You should also consider Sylvan Library as a green allstar that is perfectly suited for this deck. Another option would be Mirri's Guile. You can leave the big dinosaurs on top of your library for Gishath and only draw the useful stuff. Take out Vanquisher's Banner because it costs too much and the hymn-effect isn't needed when you're already playing the big guys.

That's all for now. I hope that you find some of my comments helpful

LVL_666 on Ixilan Spoilers - Itlimoc, Cradle ...

1 week ago

My assessment of Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun is that it's basically a budget Gaea's Cradle. It has definitely caught my eye though, as it looks like it has a lot of potential in EDH. As an enchantment, it's ability is kinda meh, as it's basically Sensei's Divining Top on an ETB trigger. The Mindcensor'd tutor effect is kinda useful though as it can help get me a creature in hand. I think i'd like to try and test this card out, as ramp is always welcome.

I'm trying to think of a way to add this card to my deck, The Queen's Egg - but what should I take out? It's both a land and and an enchantment. Initially it's kind of a Mirri's Guile/Sensei's Divining Top, but then it becomes Gaea's Cradle. Should I swap it in for a land? Hopefully someone can give me some help or suggestions.

So Sensei's Divining Top and Mirri's Guile sound good but reorganizing the top three cards isn't that great. You really want to either put dinos on top of your library or take non dinos off of the top (put on to bottom).

Mirri's Guile and Sylvan Library might be what you're looking for, but it's a bit pricy. Definitly worth it, tho.

Thanks MonoBlackCoffee! I really like the sound of Sensei's Divining Top and Mirri's Guile. I am somewhat worried about adding more ramp currently because I am not sure if I will be hitting enough land every turn to justify the enchantments quite yet. Once I have had enough time to playtest and get the land base to a better amount I will definitely come back to add those in.
