Myr Battlesphere Discussion

McToters on Barrin, Master Wizard

1 week ago

Hey thanks! Much appreciated.

In a nutshell, the deck plays with a combination of two types of cards: the ones used to activate Barrin’s ability and the one’s we generally want to return back to our hand. In a dire situation we can target our opponent’s creatures but that is not the primary focus.

Cards like: Hatching Plans, Ichor Wellspring, Mycosynth Wellspring are budget cards thatbwork perfectly as sac fodder and give some sort of reward for sending them to the graveyard. Metallurgic Summonings and Genesis Chamber are great examples of ways to generate sac fodder at minimal cost as well. Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Matter Reshaper among others give a little more of a reward when sent to the graveyard.

Then there are the cards we want to target with Barrin’s ability. Basically just a bunch of stuff with delicious ETBs. Master of Waves, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Sower of Temptation, Myr Battlesphere and Torrential Gearhulk are prime examples of this. Large payoff if we can get them to bounce multiple times.

All the instants and sorceries are a basic round-up of counterspells and spells that will help syphon through the deck. When building this, the other person who helped me mainly used cards from Guilds of Ravnica and later. So mostly newer cards.

I’ve only played a few games with this and it’s definitely fun. Biggest problem i’ve noticed is I need more firepower. I’m thinking of adding in Kozilek and Jin-Gataxius just as some potential finishers. I’m not a blue player either but Barrin appealed to me for his obscurity and the fact his ability is really solid.

Thanks for commenting and I’ll check out your Naban deck to see if I can help you out!

Braingamer: Thanks for those suggestions! Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is pretty sweet, and I really need to get my hands on one. I do agree that Sheoldred, Whispering One and Myr Battlesphere are not needed in the deck (Sheoldred is really only in there for extra graveyard recursion; the Battlesphere, when bounced, produces a crap ton of tokens and decent direct damage); however, I must respectfully disagree with cutting Razaketh, the Foulblooded. While his cmc is high, I have a few ways to cheat him into play, plus my ramp seems to be mostly consistent enough to allow me to hard cast him if need be, and he has almost single-handedly won me multiple games by allowing me to dig for whatever answer I need when I need it, while also giving me graveyard fodder to recur for more etb triggers. He's also an 8/8 flying beater with trample, which is a nice added touch for offence or defense. I may be completely wrong, but I really -really- enjoy Razaketh in this deck.

wozislightning: Awesome suggestions as well. I would -REALLY- like to get my hands on a Cloudstone Curio for this deck, but it's out of my price range, at the moment. Your ideas are definitely more affordable, and will require more investigating. Thanks much!

I'd build the EDH deck, by the way, using spells like Daretti, Scrap Savant and Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer alongside things such as Myr Battlesphere and Wurmcoil Engine to constantly make more and more bombs while also producing tons of ground troops. I can use Daretti to bring them back and loop a cycle. I can also use legendary artifacts and effectively put 6 charge counters on him just from two sacrifices: The first sac and recur it with Daretti for another sac.

Each turn, I'd be able to make a Bomb with at least 7 charge counters on it. 3 from the first sac, 3 from the second sac, and 1 for the upkeep trigger.

That means after the 2nd bomb, I am dealing 7 damage to 7 targets each turn. Absolutely disgusting.

usaDiabetic on Dimir Artifacts w/ Rona

Emry, Lurker of the Loch seems perfect in here. Same with Ashiok, Dream Render. Both around $2 is on the very edge of budget but I like them both in here. Myr Battlesphere could also be a fun add. Sticking with Myr I really like Myr Retriever. Metalwork Colossus could be a big dummy for you that just keeps coming back. Maybe Dimir Signet instead of locket? Finally Burnished Hart could give you some much needed ramp.

Either way deck looks rad, Cheers friend!

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling is really good. I would cut Razaketh, the Foulblooded for it because he's just so expensive. Also maybe cut your really expensive cards like Myr Battlesphere and Sheoldred, Whispering One for cards like Ice-Fang Coatl and Wall of Blossoms

Boza A friend of mine jams a budget Tron deck, and it’s plenty strong. The cool thing about Tron is that the white-bordered lands are relatively cheap, and there are a lot of budget alternatives for the payoffs, where most of the cost of the deck is. Myr Battlesphere may not be as powerful as Karn Liberated , but it’s just as scary on turn three. The deck is really sweet.

The card I asked for only had to be an enchantment creature because that's what I asked for. Except for gods, we haven't been creating those in this thread, and it lends itself toward certain synergies, which I was hoping would be accounted for.

also... clearly I don't understand what Linger does. Maybe next time we want to use it, its creator can put in the rules text as part of the card, if we want to bring it back.


Legendary Artifact Creature - Construct

Sacrifice a creature: you may cast Chucky from your graveyard until end of turn.

"You can't kill him. He'll just keep coming back until we're all dead."

2 / 2

Rumors are flying that Shadowspear comes from Phyrexia or has Phyrexian blood on it. For the next challenge, let's take an artifact from phyrexia or mirrodin and import it to another plane/set. For example, what would a Myr Battlesphere look like if it were utilized during War of the Spark, or if it was entered into the Kaladesh invention fair? What would a Moltensteel Dragon look like on Tarkir? Etc. etc.
