No Mercy Discussion

Lunnarius on Thantis Tokens

Some other ideas: Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , No Mercy , Marchesa's Decree , Dread , Vigor , Grenzo, Havoc Raiser , Royal Assassin , Pir, Imaginative Rascal , Awakening Zone , From Beyond , Dictate of Erebos , Dolmen Gate , AEther Membrane , Tree of Perdition , Whip of Erebos

Seem So-so: koskun falls - depends on number of players but not a lot of tax otherwise. Meren - doesn't work with tokens and not as a commander might not be worth it. Mogis - not much token syn. Dual nature - doesn't work with tokens. Greater good - the deck doesn't have a ton of big creatures to sac. Primal vigor - great syn but can be very dangerous. Yawgmoth's vile offering - not bad, but not a ton of legendary creatures in the deck.

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

NoOneOfConsequence I actually did playtest your deck once (I know, it isn't a great sample size by any means), yet many cards are an issue. I apologize, I really want to like a deck you post, just to not make this a dramafest, but I can't say a bad deck is good. Damnation and Wrath don't need to be put into the deck at all.

Here is a full list of cards that are particularly overpriced, and where each card I think is bad or could be better fits, if you truely believe that I can't evaluate it fairly:


Call to the Grave A slow, grindy, 5 mana variant of Porphyry Nodes .

Erebos, God of the Dead - A card that is indestructible, yet a worse Greed , a card that is too slow for even grindy stax lists in cEDH most of the time. Tutor for Greed is better than this.

Doomwake Giant - Interesting repeatable board wipe, a meta-dependent inclusion though, not good for the average cEDH meta, but does have a place in some lists. I'd drop, but could imagine many arguments for it's inclusion.

Ghostly Prison - anti-attacks, which just rarely comes into play outside of kiki-lines and the sort, a strange meta-dependent inclusion, but I coudl much less justify this one.

Karmic Justice - Cool card, but often enchantment removal comes in the form of bounce or exile, and so this effect feels very off.

Kismet - again kiki-hate, so I wonder if you go against that often. It is a relatively bad card in Stasis lists, which this is not, easy drop

Vindicate - 3 mana remove 1 thing is a lot of wasted mana, easy drop.

No Mercy - Really a lot of attack-hate, strange for a stax list with a commander that generates blockers. Easy drop at a 4 mana do nothing enchantment.

Knowledge Pool - I get the Eidolon of Rhetoric / Rule of Law combo with it, but many decks have better value engines than Daxos, or can respond by killing one of the pieces, or can kill Daxos. These make this combo rarely an easy way to finish the game, requiring a ton of setup/backup that survives the lock. I think better options exist.

Sigil of the Empty Throne - A slow, 5 mana do nothing enchantment, it takes forever to get this going, easy drop.

Sphere of Safety - This much creature-attack hate? How much do you need? 1 card is often too much with Daxos in the CZ, but you run... including sweepers... like 11? Wow. Your meta must be all Edric and Blood Pod, maybe 1 Kess Twin, nah, just all Edric decks.

Damnation / Wrath of God - Too expensive for a Sweeper, honestly Toxic was all you needed with Humility as well.

Pestilence - 5 mana to get a worse Electrickery , 6 mana to get a worse Pyroclasm , Sweltering Suns without cycling for 7 mana. Just really slow and weak, easy drop.

Black Market - maybe in a meta with 50 Edric decks. Outside of that, easy drop.

Coalition Relic / Worn Powerstone - just slow ramp spells, not bad cards, but Fellwar Stone / Everflowing Chalice comes first.

Infernal Tribute - Cool jank, not useful next to cards like Dark Confidant that is excluded.

Academy Rector - Just no great targets like Pattern of Rebirth in color, great card, just not here.

Grim Tutor / Idyllic Tutor - Just a bit too slow at 3 mana for a tutor. Love them, just gotta leave them. Hard drop.

Land Tax - should run the Geddon/Ravages package or leave this out.

Replenish / Open the Vaults - This deck doesn't run enough ways to sacrifice/ Entomb enchantments to make me want to include the cards.

Mesa Enchantress - Slow card draw on a weak creature is just removal bait, this deck has better cards for the slot. Harder drop.

Phyrexian Arena - A lot of math goes into why this card is generally pretty bad. Inefficient and weak in most circumstances, and needs almost 5 unimpeded turns to get enough value to be okay. Better cards for the slot.

Cabal Coffers - big mana, not worth it outside of ANS.

Vesuva - copying a land to enter tapped leaves you in a lack of mana. Weak card.

Command Beacon - easy drop, weak card.

Deserted Temple - Easy drop, weak card.

Strip Mine - Good card, not here.

Wasteland - Same as Strip Mine but worse.

Temple of Silence - scry is weak when you lose due to not having mana, easy drop

Kor Haven - Easy Drop, never gonna use that ability

Plains x4 - Not great at Fixing

Swamp x6 - Same as Plains


New inclusions (Total drops are at 42)

Base inclusions: Fellwar Stone , Prismatic Lens , Thought Vessel , Everflowing Chalice , Caves of Koilos , Command Tower , City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Exotic Orchard , Cavern of Souls , Gemstone Caverns , Gemstone Mine , and Tarnished Citadel

Total real cards left to put in: 29

Thorn of Amethyst , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Trinisphere , Tangle Wire , Sphere of Safety , Damping Sphere , Fragmentize , Aura of Silence , Dismember , Lotus Petal , Dark Ritual , Kataki, War's Wage , Crucible of Worlds , Bottomless Pit , Oppression , Liliana of the Veil , Static Orb , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Ethersworn Canonist , Aven Mindcensor , Torpor Orb , Planar Void , Grafdigger's Cage , Ensnaring Bridge (just for your meta), Dark Confidant , Containment Priest , Chalice of the Void , Sanctum Prelate , Alms Collector

That would be the deck.

Maybe Tempt with Vengeance? Grenzo, Havoc Raiser for some goad redundancy.

Chaos Warp for some spot removal and fits the theme. I would try and find space for a Blasphemous Act or other boardwipe as well as the No Mercy in the sideboard

Phyrexian Infiltrator has in its activation cost thus is Dimir color identity.

And maybe if your playgroup tries to hate you out of the game Stunning Reversal might help leave you in it to keep the fun rolling.

Snap157 on Any ideas for Xantcha Politics?

1 week ago

if you do Xantcha, know that she DOES NOT work with Mogis, God of Slaughter, because the person controlling her can just sacrifice her. I would go for political strategy, using things like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor, Disrupt Decorum, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, No Mercy/Dread, Maddening Imp/Nettling Imp, Victory Chimes, Rite of the Raging Storm

Add in wipes like Blasphemous Act, Damnation, Fire Covenant, Last One Standing, and Decree of Pain

With Xantcha is you get infinite mana you can kill someone with her ability, so I would add in Basalt Monolith with Rings of Brighthearth, and she also comboes well with Neheb, the Eternal and Heartstone.

Hope this helps!

Doctorlobo89 on Gyrus Waker of Corpses Commander 2018

2 weeks ago

I've been wanting to build my first Jund deck for awhile now and at first it was going to be a Jund Spider war deck but now Gyrus, Waker of Corpses has my attention. Having a dredge exile deck sounds like fun and would be a fun way to shake up the current pod's at my local comic shop. Personally I want to try and keep the tokens but at the same time sacrifice them to deal more damage.

I would add for my enjoyment No Mercy for defensive purposes along with Phyrexian Tower, Altar of Dementia and Ashnod's Altar for utility purpose's.

Also don't be afraid to put in some small discard sorcery cards. For example Hymn to Tourach is pretty solid. For two mana you make somebody discard 2 cards at RANDOM. Random discards are very powerful because they can really mess up a player's tempo. That is another reason why Bottomless Pit and Mind Twist are very powerful. Smallpox is another powerful card to play. It fits in the discard theme but it also does a bunch of other stuff that messes with a lot of people's tempo early game.

Also think about putting maybe one or two, one mana discard cards. I run it in Nebuchadnezzar because it supports his ability very well but having the power of seeing an opponents hand early game can help you figure out which opponent is the biggest threat and who you should be making discard faster. Thoughtseize is the best one mana drop discard. Close seconds would be Duress and Inquisition of Kozilek. I only recommend though using one or two just because having too many one drop discard cards can end up back firing for you. Its just nice value, you get to pick what gets discarded and you get to see how strong there hand is, if its really powerful you bully that guy and if its not amazing you can pick on another player.

Last little tip: When playing a discard deck, you will either be ignored because people underestimate your strength and consider your deck as a nuisance but not a threat or you will be considered the villain of the table and be targeted cause nobody wants to throw away there cards. Because of that, I recommend No Mercy. Its a nice defensive card that tells people to back off and to let you be.

I hope this all helps out.

Thanks for your advice! It helps me a lot to see new ideas and after all this allows my deck to grow.

KayneMarco: Luminarch Ascension and Cleansing Meditation are going in, they have a low CMC and fits in the strategy. Sigil of the Empty Throne is with total costs of 3WW too expensive, same is for the other cards. There are so many good enchantments, but some of them just slow the deck down - sometimes it's not easy to choose the right ones.

Nickals-Tresarry: Thank you, I really appreciate it! Very nice idea, I'll try it, if the Mindcrank-tactic works.

Lettorbwallclimb: The discard tactic is not the best control theme, I chose it because of my playgroup. It is so easy for them to destroy certain creatures, but they cannot handle the discard effects. I'm going to consider to skip Waste Not if this card does not work. Dying Wail just works with fear, because no one wants to throw cards to the graveyard.

NV_1980: I am really thankful for those suggestions. I have one No Mercy but currently in my Sabotage Stax (Lazav) EDH-Deck. Maybe it is better placed in this one. Your Deck is pretty nice and I love it to scroll through the deck list, great work!

NV_1980 on Daxos Redemption EDH

Hi,

We really like your deck. We're not sure if you're on a budget, so please forgive us if some of our suggestions lay outside the range you're willing to spend:

  • Underworld Dreams; we've included this in our Daxos deck, because we're facing lots of blue- and black decks in our playgroups that rely on drawing lots of cards in order to filter for wincons. This card really hurts such strategies.
  • No Mercy; makes attacking you a very daunting proposition.
  • Rule of Law; stops combo decks right in their tracks.
  • Extinguish All Hope; not cheap to cast, but no one-sided boardwipe is.
  • Idyllic Tutor; wonderful tutor in a deck like this.
  • Aegis of the Gods; nice, cheap way to give yourself hexproof.
  • Celestial Ancient; great way to spice up the tokens you get from Daxos.

Hope any of this helps. Please check out our Daxos deck for any other ideas. Have fun brewing and playing.

Wkr,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980
