ArchFline: I appreciate the tech! I’m not huge on Sundial of the Infinite mostly on account of having to end my turn just to save Chainer’s pets from exile. I have enough sac effects to ensure they’ll be okay in the long run.

Which leads me to...

dritchie: digging a lot of the suggestions. I used to run Disciple of Bolas but don’t anymore because if it’s my only critter (say, early game), it’s a dud. Geth, Lord of the Vault would be nice if I was relying on opposing graves (I aim to be a very self-sufficient Chainer deck due to various meta reasons) — same with Sepulchral Primordial and Rise of the Dark Realms, to a lesser degree. I don’t really want to play Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath mostly because, Daretti, Scrap Savant (in my Norin the Wary deck) and Teferi, Temporal Archmage (in my Aminatou, the Fateshifter build) aside, I don’t tend to like playing commander walkers in the 99. Desecration Demon gives opponents a choice to stop the thing which slows the game plan if abided. My opponent’s don’t tend to have a shortage of blockers or things worth sacking (yet not worth reanimating, oddly enough).

HOWEVER: I like It That Betrays as a consideration (and can do it in paper right now!), so I may take that into consideration soon.

Therefore, I am wondering what to cut for the following cards though (in order of priority): It That Betrays (since I own one already), Exsanguinate, and Contamination (these last two are lower priority because I don’t have them yet... truthfully I’d prefer Contamination before Exsanguinate but the latter is cheaper lol). Any ideas?

seems like a fun build. Even though its not wizard tribal Deadeye Navigator could net you SOOOO many etb triggers and token copies of a flickered wizard.

Polymorphist's Jest is a godsend against aggro and token decks, always a welcome card in hand.

Mission Briefing is budget snappy, without the wizard bod. ~4 at time of posting.

I have seen a silly combo variant with Conspiracy and Norin the Wary as well if you are interested in surprise jank interactions

Overall it certainly seems like it runs. Good job, plenty of opportunities for money pieces to be added.

goblinguiderevealpls on Etali EDH: good, bad, terrible?

2 months ago

well first off its kinda good and bad.

as far as serious edh is considered, boros is the worst colors due to lack of tutors and draw spells, however that doesnt make them bad it just makes them WORSE, mono- is only really bad in cedh,

as far as etali is concerned, he is a unique take on a mono red general and can be really fun. the problems i can see in etali is that he costs 6 and lacks haste, a turn 6 that the table has a turn to respond to is kinda bad.

however if you really like the deck you can try and MAKE it as good as possible. the best ways to do this is to have a lot of etali protection like equipment and you DEFINITELY want as much ramp as possible, from Seething Song to Coalition Relic to Thran Dynamo, youd need to get etali out much earlier than turn 6 to ensure you get triggers. its also worth noting that Relentless Assault effects double up his ability

the main problem is it has to compete with the other "good" mono red generals, such as Norin the Wary, Krenko, Mob Boss, Neheb, the Eternal all of which cost less mana and are fully dedicated to chaos and burn strategies, this would lean more towards a norin chaos type of decklist

Strionic Resonator copies his ability also

Seems dece. 3 things though.

I don't like 4x Holy Day in an aggro deck.

I think Norin the Wary just to trigger Champ/Leutenant is a bit too cute.

Having no copies of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben probably make you too weak vs Combo decks.

I've had success with Saltskitters as a critter creation engine.

When Saltskitter enters the battlefield, Genesis Chamber creates a token, and the token entering the battlefield will exile it until the next end of turn. Make another token and exile it again during the opponent's end step.

It's like a nonlegendary Norin the Wary.
