Nephalia Smuggler could be fun. Like Conjurer's Closet, it lets you keep what you take. Synod Sanctum works this way as well. Perplexing Chimera is neat in conjunction with these cards and your general

Combos I Saw In This Deck: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Deceiver Exarch / Palinchron / Pestermite

This is definitely a casual deck. I think the creator is using cards he actually has. Because there's a lot of combos missing.

Missing Compliments Kiki:

Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake / Palinchron Nephalia Smuggler + Peregrine Drake / Palinchron Palinchron + Phantasmal Image Sakashima the Impostor + Peregrine Drake / Palinchron

Ghostly Flicker + Gilded Lotus + Dualcaster Mage / Narset's Reversal

Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal

All the mages like Trinket Mage for the 1, 2, and 3 drop artifacts.

Mind Over Matter is busted in this kind of deck

I'm a little confused, but maybe I'm misunderstanding. Since Acrobatic Maneuver Momentary Blink and Oblivion Ring say that the creature returns under its owners control and not your control, wouldn't blinking them in that way just put them back onto the opponents battlefield?

I don't see anything like Cloudshift , Ghostly Flicker , Nephalia Smuggler , Synod Sanctum , etc, that would steal them permanently

TheMillKid on Sedris The Unearther | Please Help

7 months ago

Hi! I'd glad to see that you've discovered the interaction between Unearth and flicker effects (pretty great, isn't it?)

In terms of discard effects (and the wheels that make Megrim cards great), you might want to consider Nekusar, the Mindrazer . You could build an entirely separate deck dedicated to the effect, or combine the themes and switch between the two generals depending on how you feel.

As for cards to support blinking and Sedris. Nephalia Smuggler is another repeatable blink effect, with the added bonus of being a creature that can be unearthed (although the ability is a bit expensive). Nezahal, Primal Tide provides strong card advantage and also can circumvent the Unearth exile.

Lands like Safe Haven and Endless Sands are good lands to save an Unearthed creature for another turn.

Happy brewing!

Mortarpod on UW Petitioner Self Mill...Reanimator Combo?

8 months ago

In no particular order, I've got some suggestions you might have a look at. Some cards are just to round out the deck and give you a little more defensive capability, and others are to fully lean-into the self-mill theme you've got going. In particular, you might want to put in more blink effects so you can tap your Petitioners more than once per turn/round.

Still a super freaking cool concept! It turns what the card was MEANT to do on its head, and makes it that much more potent (it's easier to mill just one person-- yourself-- than it is to try and handle all your opponents at once instead).

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Pir & Toothy, Wheel & deal

There's a couple more flicker effects that I don't see in your main or sideboard like Nephalia Smuggler / Displace / Illusionist's Stratagem / Deadeye Navigator and weird ones like Baral's Expertise and Supplant Form . And creatures that counter spells work well with blink like Frilled Mystic / Mystic Snake / Draining Whelk .

There's also Everflowing Chalice / Astral Cornucopia that work with Pir, and Thrummingbird / Skyship Plunderer that are basically magpies (with Toothy) and help the counter themes. Tel-Jilad Stylus / Crystal Shard / Lord of the Unreal helps with protecting Toothy. What do you think about Whirlpool Drake / Whirlpool Rider / Forgotten Creation / Teferi's Puzzle Box as an additional Alhammarret's Archive? Turbulent Dreams is a nice additional Cyclonic Rift. And why do you run no planeswalkers like Kiora, the Crashing Wave / Nissa, Vital Force / Garruk, Primal Hunter (they enter the battlefield and activate with an additional counter with Pir.

What do you think of Empyrial Plate / Thassa, God of the Sea / Words of Wilding / Sphinx's Tutelage / Psychic Corrosion / Key to the City as an extra wincon? I have my own deck (here)[http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-07-18-pirtoothy/?cat=type&sort=cost] and I'm considering if these are suboptimal.

PartyJ on Nicol Bolas, Lord of Specters

Hi, I never encountered or played with this commander yet.

But looking at what you are trying to do, I thought of these cards to consider:

  • Baral's Expertise : return stuff to your opponents hands and send Nicol Bolas back to yours as well, then casting him for free and getting an ETB trigger again. Sweetness!
  • Nephalia Smuggler : repeatable blink to use on your commander each turn.
  • Conjurer's Closet : free blink for your commander at the end of your turn.
  • Deadeye Navigator : repeatable ETB discard triggers from Nicol Bolas.
  • Panharmonicon : double the discard trigger of your commander.
  • Training Grounds : Good value for this deck!

Hope I gave you something interesting to think about...

Good luck! Check out my favorite EDH deck here.

Thanks!
