MagicalHacker on Good pillowfort cards for superfriends ...

2 weeks ago

You'll find stuff like Sphere of Safety and Peacekeeper in MagicalHacker - List of All Pillow Fort Cards, but when I played superfriends, my favorite pillow fort was Mystic Barrier.

If you want to get cheeky, my buddy runs a casual 60 card deck with the "Give people tokens" theme, then uses Repercussion and Blasphemous Act to deal tons of damage to players and kill them.

I had run a Selvala, Explorer Returned deck. One way to win was to get enough mana and then Hurricane the board, killing everyone at the same time.

Another way you could win is with cards like Darksteel Reactor, Azor's Elocutors, Celestial Convergence, Epic Struggle, Helix Pinnacle, ect like effects are a way to win without really needing to do anything or very little. If you go this route, you'll want to go into a pillowfort style deck and "smother them in kindness". So cards like Forced Fruition on your side will make it hard to cast spells, playing Mystic Barrier and making sure big guys cant get to you and can only attack one direction makes it harder to do things. I played a group hug deck and it was more fun for my opponents than it was for me to play. Never the less it is possible. You just have to figure out how you want to win, and how to achieve this.

You mentioned you were running into draw issues. blue should have plenty to do that. One thing I learned with four color decks is consistency. Fetches, shocks and double colored or mana that can get you colors you need are necessary when playing decks like these. I recommend looking at Tolarian Academy for a guide on 4 color mana bases. They team up with The Command Zone and mention lots of things. They also believe in 10 mana ramp cards and 10 draw spells. I have began to run this philosophy and have found it to work...most times. After playing the deck I realize like "I didn't have enough card draw" or "I was sooo mana flooded" and then adjust accordingly. A deck is never 'complete', it is forever changing and evolving with you. However, remember that it is an extension of yourself so if it isn't working, don't feel bad changing it up. Don't feel bad abandoning it, only to return back to it

Crown of Doom and Mystic Barrier are some of my favorite political cards.

Love-in-Theory on This Fortress of Tears (Zedruu Pillowfort/Control)

4 months ago

dan98mg- Thanks for commenting!

Even though our playstyle for Zedruu decks might be a bit different, I still really like some of your suggestions!

Aurification- I'm in love with this, and will be adding this to the deck ASAP!

Copy Enchantment- This could be very useful, so I'll probably pick a copy of this up too!

Island Sanctuary- I would love to use this, as this would be really good in those big EDH games. However my meta/LPG runs lots Flyers (Damn you Talrand, Sky Summoner!)

Smoke- Nice board control

Mystic Barrier- Perfect for those 3+ EDH games!

Hi there, I my self am building a Zedruu deck. I have a couple things to suggest. Crown of Doom & Jinxed Idol for people attacking them, and they pass it around. Akroan Horse, Psychosis Crawler, Vedalken Plotter some more creatures to help. Some enchantments Aurification, Copy Enchantment, Embargo, Island Sanctuary, Mana Flair, Mystic Barrier, Smoke, & Words of War. There are some that aren't exactly your play style but i should say that my Zedruu deck is more slightly group hug/chaos with only one or two win cons, also I almost always play with 3+ people for edh games.

It is truly depressing you can't put Boldwyr Heavyweights in this deck.

If your opponents are putting out their best creatures maybe a few "Clone" effects would be good? Stunt Double or Followed Footsteps would be hilarious rignt after a Tempting Wurm.

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip would be good for mana and shorter games.

Mystic Barrier for protection and LoL's.

My Sen Triplets deck uses the heck out of the Spurnmage Advocate but i see now, i also need me a Wishmonger.
