Nahiri, the Harbinger Discussion

seebz on Shadows Over Bogles

3 days ago

the grixis control matchup is pretty much unlosable. played against it twice at GP Van, 4-0. also w/r prison is nigh unwinnable, mainboard Chalice of the Void(t1), Blessed Alliance, Blood Moon and Nahiri, the Harbinger is pretty much the ultimate counter to bogles.

DarkEclipse18 on Breya Superfriends

So I love Breya colors for Superfriends, yeah ok I lose Doubling season and a few Walkers [most green ones are jsut ramp so I'll live] Bur in return I get red, which i enjoy more for the extra card draw [and other effects like removal and distruption]

But still need help making sure the Walker line up looks good, I feel I have a bit too many and combined with a basic 36 land deck means half of my deck is already set up, leaving little room for extra cards since most of the deck will be artifacts to support the walkers [whether it is protecting with creatures, or boosting them via proliferate and mana rocks for ramp]

Things to note:~I want it to be a good deck but trying to Avoid infinite combos, also trying to keep my Price spike on walkers low [avoiding Karn and Jace Mind Sculptor basically]~Only one of each walker for now, so i never have to worry about dropping them and losing another copy in play.


Ajani Vengeant -Tap down and burn, plus getting ult off can destroy someone

Chandra, Torch of Defiance -Ramp and Card draw [combine with Sensei's Divining Top to know what i'm gonna exile], plus burn if needed

Dack Fayden - Draw power plus combine with Liquimetal Coating to steal ANYTHING :3

Daretti, Scrap Savant -Draw power, artifact recurrsion and if i combine ultimate with Mycosynth Lattice i can make walkers come back after losing loyalty

Dovin Baan - Draw and partial protection

Elspeth, Knight-Errant -Protection with blockers

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar -CHUMP BLOCKERS!!!! :P

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets -Best Jace for the deck while staying budget. Draw power, and partial protection

Kaya, Ghost Assassin -Nice versatility and can blink my ETB artifact creatures

Liliana of the Veil - Nice Disruption [yes i know she is over budgest compared to the rest of walkers but i own one already]

Nahiri, the Harbinger - Draw power and her minus can be good removal

Narset Transcendent -Mostly draw power, but can combine her minus with something like a tutor effect to get extra value [x2 call the gatewatch? x2 Demonic or Vampiric tutor? yes please]

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker - he is great if i can get him down, all abilities are great and relevant

Ob Nixilis Reignited - Draw power and removal

Saheeli Rai - Ehhhh, in this deck she is debatable, the plus to scry is meh, but the minus could copy a mana rock for one turn to get the small extra mana, or copy an ETB artifact like Solemn Simulacrum for extra value

Sarkhan the Mad - So probably an odd choice, but his zero can be good card draw with Sensei's Divining Top and zero drop artifacts or lands so i don't ping him down, and his minus can trigger my own death triggers and replace the creature

Sorin, Grim Nemesis - Card draw mostly, but his potential removal is not to be ignored

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage - Tap things down mostly, keep plusing on most threatening things on board

Teferi, Temporal Archmage - Card drawn, untap anything, yeah he great

Tezzeret, Master of Metal -SO to stay away from my infinite combo i chose him over Tezzeret the Seeker and i feel his plus is nice way to get artifacts and his minus can potentially hit an opponent really hard.

Okay, let's do this! cracks knuckles I love the snarky tone of the description, btw :)

The stax elements of this deck seem strong, mostly. You're missing Winter Orb though. I would normally suggest Crackdown and Meekstone and Moat, but they interfere with Alesha :( Perhaps Smoke or Mudslide? I don't personally like Chalice of the Void in EDH, though, there's just too much variance in the mana cost of powerful cards. And since you're reanimating things anyway, might as well play Big Daddy Smokestack!

However, the land base seems...a little off. 29 mana-producing lands is REALLY really low, doubly so since you will have to pay some of your own "taxes". I know that the Karoo lands help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust this mana base without SIGNIFICANT testing. You might also find the Filterlands useful to mana fix (Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Graven Cairns). I also never leave home without Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, etc. Basically, look at Lilbrudder's Leovold mana base and color-shift it XD

I'd frequently choose to run Rest in Peace over (or in addition to) Leyline of the Void. Always good to run another combo piece!

Phyrexian Arena over Underworld Connections, 1000%. The former doesn't lock down a land, which is even more important in this deck.

I'm actually not really a fan of Nahiri, the Harbinger in EDH. Is she just there for utility, or are you planning to use her ult? If the former is true, there are better ways to get card filtering. If the latter is true, what's your finisher?

That being said, planeswalkers can generally be really good in stax decks. You might get away with including some other walkers that play more into your gameplan, possibly Sorin Markov to reset lifetotals? :)

Night's Whisper over Wild Guess: less color commitment, more card advantage.

No Necropotence? :( I guess maybe the card is too much color commitment in tri-color.

If you're going to run Mox Opal with only 18 artifacts, I'd try and include the three on-color artifact lands as well.

False Prophet seems odd here, since you have the ability to reanimate creatures with relative ease.

Personally, I'd substitute Austere Command over Merciless Eviction, though it does depend on how you plan to use the board wipe.

Land Tax does wonders to fix your mana, and recover after an Armageddon...

If you have oodles of money, Imperial Recruiter pairs well with Recruiter of the Guard.

Yes or no on Mox Diamond? Your land count is already low, but it's so good...

Swords to Plowshares over Path to Exile: you don't want to give your opponents land ramp in a stax deck, lol.

I hope that helps a bit! :) I'll leave more comments if I think of them, and happy deckbuilding!

Blood Moon belongs to sideboards

Maybe your opponent can't play his wincon, but you don't have one.

Blightsteel Colossus X1 is not enough, not only that but you will 100% die before you have enough lands to cast it.

Nahiri, the Harbinger -8 ... ok, what if you draw Blightsteel Colossus, or worst, draw it with Dark Confidant

Too many spells that costs life, Cut the 2 or all thoughtseize.

Nevermore Belongs to sideboard, you don't even know what your opponent wil play before you first play a game.

Deck seems fun to play, but you need a reliable wincon. :)

RoyLancaster on "When you cast" does not ...

I'm just asking this for clarification. Say I have Nahiri, the Harbinger on the battlefield, and I use her ult to bring in Bruna, the Fading Light. Bruna's ability does not activate because I did not cast her. Correct?

@Lame_Duck: Yeah I think once I get Liliana, the Last Hope, Horizon Canopy, and Nahiri, the Harbinger in here, I'll have to consider Chromatic Lantern or Prismatic Omen. It would also allow me to play something like Blood Moon for even more obnoxiousness.

I'm really considering Prismatic Omen for the same reasons you recommended Chromatic Lantern, in addition to being able to board in a Scapeshift package out of the sideboard as an alternate win condition.

Die4Dethklok on modern mill updated

2 weeks ago

I had a mill deck for a while, but stopped playing it as much when the Nahiri, the Harbinger + Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and dredge decks became so popular. The reshuffle is impossible to deal with, and dredge can kill you ridiculously quickly, especially if you're doing their job for them.

I feel like you may want Leyline of the Void in the sideboard, or even in the main deck, to deal with those shenanigans. A dredge deck can get all their creatures on the battlefield before you are able to cast Crypt Incursion. It also shuts down delve decks, Snapcaster Mage, Past in Flames decks etc...

Also, most mill stuff is targeted, and Leyline of Sanctity is a pretty popular sideboard card, so you'd need a way to deal with that. Speaking of Leyline, you have no real way to deal with creature light burn decks, or opposing mill decks. Since you have no way to make white mana for your own Leyline of Sanctity, and minimal counterspells, Witchbane Orb could be an ok sideboard card, if you aren't Lightning Bolted to death by the time you draw / play it.

I may suggest something like this.

Crypt Incursion and Darkness to sideboard, drop Profane Memento entirely

Add in 4 Leyline of the Void main, add 4th Glimpse the Unthinkable, and a 2nd Twincast, Twincast + Glimpse the Unthinkable seems pretty awesome.

Anyway, the deck looks pretty fun. +1 from me.
