Null Brooch Discussion
1 week ago
Onlytruereject I like Gaddock Teeg but I rely too heavily on my sorceries and enchantments and he cuts too many of those out. But I really like the idea of Null Brooch because more often than not I end up playing hellbent (I know, Selesnya isn't supposed to play that way, but I love a massive board state. I'm a true Timmy at heart.) Thanks for your help, I'll definitely be making some alterations now.

Haha your response is perfect. I had the pleasure of casting that spell against this same commander while running a Bolas deck. My pod deemed that plays as a Bolas achievement. Aka use someones generals specialty against them. With Sigardra, forcing her to die by using her ability against her was far too funny.
Okay, now that we had some laughs, lets talk about the other fun part of your comment. Ironically, the last deck I built is indeed Sheoldred. However, I refuse to play torment of hailfire in the deck mainly from request of my play group. My deck just happens to have a lot of mana options.
So how do you deal with Torment. Not entirely sure honestly. On a positive side, you are running colors that can restrict the game. Maybe add Gaddock Teeg or get some none blue counter spells. Null Brooch is a personal favorite of mine since you can still discard your hand if you dont have a hand. Just need to think outside the box and find non blue counter stuff... like Mana Tithe

Onlytruereject, never knew Null Brooch even existed. That's pretty cool. Control spells are definitely a weakness I noticed early on in the construction of my deck and looking at yours, you suffer from the same issues, but you do have some countermeasures in the form of Asceticism. My backup plan when Zacama gets countered however, is to have well...other options. The Polyraptor is my backup plan, as it's nigh impossible to get rid of outside of mass removal. Maybe instead of using up precious deck space putting in spells that are useful in only a handful of situations, consider putting in a backup plan instead?

LVL_666 Been thinking of my deck a bit and realize my biggest issue is counterspells. Having someone counter Zacama is harsh. The most I paid for Zacama one time was 17 mana just to have it countered. So, Ill update the deck later, but wanted to let you know what cards Ill be adding. Not sure what I need to remove just yet, but look into getting a Cavern of Souls, Guttural Response, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, and maybe Null Brooch (pretty decent if you have no hand)

Yeah it is scary and easier than it has any right to be to cast it on turn one with this deck. Out of curiosity which method got you there? Paradox Engine, a bunch of rocks, hasty Metalworker, or infinite turn one mana?
Thanks for the compliment some people do not understand how fast it is. (It is more like 25 lands one of those doesnt make mana; luckily it helps you dig for it though which is its job.Bazaar of Baghdad) You are right about early couterspell being a possible issue. The clocks paired with Null Brooch, being faster than an opponent can counter, and having backup rocks you can still afford to cast are its only way through it. Even a blue deck most of the time wants to play something on turn 1 and 2 to set up for better control in the next turns or set up a combo so you basically have to hope you are too fast to stop. I did put in everything else I could think of for protection though like Torpor Orb, Erratic Portal, and Darksteel Forge. If you have any ideas for better protection let me know but instant speed protection is not really a thing colorless does well.

Rekoath-the-Sealed-Ancient I thank you for your interest in my deck. I have never done a video on well anything since I left college. I wouldnt even know were to start. But if you have any questions about why I choose certain cards I am happy to answer.
To answer your question about tron lands; I prefer the utility of the lands I chose. Tron is very hard to pull off in 100 cards using no colors at all. Shrine of the Forsaken Gods is as close as I am willing to go as it does not require specific other lands to function. Each land has its own purpose and I cannot think of any I would cut for tron with how difficult it is to assemble.
I also run what many would consider a low land count but with all the artifact ramp it almost never matters. 1-2 lands especially if they make more than one mana is often all the deck needs to start ramping. When deciding if you should mulligan the only thing you consider with this deck is mana. Getting the commander cast is its only focus so you can start swinging and taking away resources from your opponents as fast as possible. I have started with 1 land hands that only make 1 mana and still cast my commander on turn 2 with haste. I have started with 6 land hands and a Candelabra of Tawnos and cast him on turn 4 without ever playing any other artifacts first.
This deck has a backup controll element in Null Brooch combined with the many untap abilities. I have been able to put a lock on board as early as turn three that shuts down control/combo players and counters literally every non creature spell cast on every turn and I never had to discard a single card as I almost always play every card I draw as soon as I draw it. I never hold back with this deck if its going to win it has to force your opponents to use up all their answers as fast as possible, and you shouldnt care if they do because playing the commander even once can shift things in your favor even if its countered or removed. This all in strategy means that it will win or loose very fast and very spectacularly. So far it is mostly win. I hope that gives some insight into how I play it.
Im always happy to answer questions and accept constructive criticisms.

What is your ETI wincon? Lab man only? I understand Sanguine Blood Combo in this deck as its a staple for Oloro, you need Enlightened Tutor + Vampiric Tutor in the deck. You want to be able to tutor into wincons rather than just Necroing into them or using Demonic to get a single piece.
