Nyxborn Rollicker Discussion

dingusdingo on I'm interested in building draw ...

6 months ago

Alms Collector + wheel of your choice. Wheel of Fortune Winds of Change Reforge the Soul Wheel of Fate Memory Jar . The alms collector is strong against decks that draw cards, and wheels are powerful even without the bonus lockout and draw from the alms collector.

Goblin Welder + Memory Jar . At the cost of an sacrifice an artifact you get to draw 7 cards a turn that you get to abuse better than your opponent due to them leaving EOT. Welder has big potential for abuse with other cards, and can recur pieces of the combos you've already mentioned. Memory Jar is used with Alms collector and has the words "Draw 7 cards on it" outside of combo usage.

Kor Spiritdancer / Mesa Enchantress / Sram, Senior Edificer + Mark of Fury / Flickering Ward . Mark of fury is obviously better and easier to slot, but Flickering Ward serves as reusable protection for creatures you want to survive a round or two, and if it resolves you can stop yourself getting 2-for-1'd by returning it to hand. Similar situation with Kor Spiritdancer and the enchantress, one is obviously better but if you're running this engine your deck is going to be wanting enchantments anyways (maybe some future enchantress damage commander?) to benefit extra value of enchantresses. Either way, enchantress + Mark of fury is a draw every turn for just

Astral Slide or Astral Drift + Seasoned Pyromancer is very bonkers. You obviously put it into a cycling deck. You pay 1 for the cycle to draw 1, then get 2 loots from the pyromancer while getting 2 critters. Digging 3 deep while keeping 1 is better than Burning Inquiry or Faithless Looting , and you get up to 2 tokens. Another deck specific engine, despite being fantastic. There's also the new red Tectonic Reformation to GREATLY improve this build. Honestly you could probably mash this together with the enchantress one for a laugh.

Enduring Renewal + Phyrexian Altar + creature of your choice gets some interesting effects. Mesa Enchantress + Hopeful Eidolon / Nyxborn Rollicker lets you draw through. Seasoned Pyromancer lets you filter a LOT of cards and build a large board of tokens. Insolent Neonate lets you filter through your entire library. Thraben Inspector gives you an infinite amount of clues for draws. Priest of Urabrask gives infinite mana, which isn't draws but relevant to Altar

Enduring Renewal has other combo options outside Altar or draws. Priest of Urabrask + free sac outlet is infinite sacs, great with something like Altar of the Brood or Altar of Dementia . Renewal can also loop with free sac outlets with 0 cost creatures.

If you're looking for an 'interactive' aura, Flamespeaker's Will is cheap and can pop an annoying artifact without slowing down your combat.

For a less efficient, but kinda spicy idea Nyxborn Rollicker can come down early to block or be cast later as a (somewhat overcosted) aura.

Nyxborn Rollicker is surprisingly functional in heroic setups. Satyr Firedancer is pretty close to unplayable, unless you have a Basilisk Collar . Reckless Reveler is pretty much sideboardable, given the other options. Setessan Oathsworn is almost playable, if you desperatly abuse Shimmering Wings and Arcanum Wings with the occasional Eldrazi Conscription .

Cards that you should take out: Infectious Bloodlust (unless you add 2 more) Flamespeaker's Will, Ancient Grudge is waayy better, Great Furnace They are not modern! lol, Whims of the Fates its just not good, Gruul Guildgate, Nyxborn Rollicker a 1/1 for is not good in modern. Cards to Add: Burning-Tree Shaman its good as a 3/4 for 3 and can only get better, Temple of Abandon, Cinder Glade while these are not needed they will be nice. Sorry that this is kinda short, this is my second time writing this and I got a bit impatient.....

madmartigan95 on Uril the Miststomper

Cards I think could easily be cut:

Web- worst of the reach cards

Auramancer- Better options, see below

Heliod's Emissary- not worth the mana

Nyxborn Rollicker- not useful

Restoration Specialist-have to sacrifice only hits single one

Angelic Gift- flying worse than anything else, draw is unnecessary

Brilliant Halo- nice recursion, but not that great

Eternal Warrior- doesn't do enough to include

Forced Adaptation- too slow

Gift of the Woods- too niche, point is to not be blocked

Instill Energy- haste is eh, untap is basically vigilance, not really necessary

Knightly Valor- CMC too high

Mammoth Umbra-

Ordeal of Purphoros- slow for what it does

Regeneration, Savage Silhouette, Serpent Skin, Trollhide- Most wraths get around the regeneration anyway, you can afford to lose anyone to spot removal except your commander... which is already hexproof.

Venomous Fangs- your chump blockers don't need it, Uril's gonna be huge already

Vigilance- not enough in this deck

The Three Vows- Irrelevant as they can still block your guys. Maybe one if you do a lot of multiplayer.

Nyxborn Shieldmate

Entangler- high CMC

Vigilant Martyr- same issues with regeneration, at the very least replace with Dawn Charm

Venom- meh all around

Open the Vaults- replace with Retether/Second Sunrise

Cards that are on the verge:

Auratouched Mage-higher CMC, but it does open up more expensive auras

Conviction- Better than Brilliant Halo, still not that great

Fists of Ironwood- Superfluous

Hammerhand- meh card

Lifelink- Nice art, unless you're getting a lot of direct damage, not that helpful

Lightform- Looks okay, too many non-creatures though

Murder Investigation

Oath of the Ancient Wood- Faster than the ordeal cards, no other benefits though

Shape of the Wiitigo, Shield of the Oversoul, Hyena Umbra, Glaring Aegis- You have to cut something

Indrik Umbra-Keep if you can find something else to go easily.

Cards you should consider adding:

Retether- Bodiless Auramancer but better

Second Sunrise- Get passed their wrath effects, not a first choice though

Lightning Bolt- Spot removal is nice

Dawn Charm- See above

Samuel-Frederick on $10 Boros Weenie

Hey, just a few suggestions for budget boros weenie that I think are worth having a think about.

Doomed Traveler isn't a bit hitter, but is removal and wrath protection, and can teach about card value. Dragon Hunter, one mana 2/1 with a slight upside, can't complain about that really, basically an Elite Vanguard. Goblin Glory Chaser is a one mana 2/2 menace (in theory), a different mechanic to play with, and can hit hard. Another new mechanic for the deck, and another lesson in value are Nyxborn Rollicker, and Nyxborn Shieldmate. Another 2 power for one mana is Rakdos Cackler, not very thematic but fits for power and colour. Then there is the boss of weenie, the awesome top man himself, the Selfless Cathar! So much love for him. He's a great card for new players to play and learn with.

When building a deck that is going wide then Akroan Hoplite can get big. Not all that exciting but Cerodon Yearling is fast at least. Teaching about value and the dangers of going wide, you can have cards that go tall such as Sunhome Guildmage, and Truefire Paladin a bit as well.

If the deck has some boosts then Iroas's Champion is cool, or another fast card with Skyknight Legionnaire

I'm not excited by the enchantments you have, I'd rather individual ones that can boost them over cards that have little effect, or are defensive such as Brave the Sands. Just go aggressive with things such as Ordeal of Purphoros, and Madcap Skills. Swap the three mana Fervor for the awesome Expedite. It does what you need by not slowing you down later on, it allows you to run fewer lands (curving at two or with a few three drops I'd be happy with 20 lands), and it doesn't cost you a card. If you were spending more on it then Legion's Initiative is all sorts of awesome.

Just a few things to think about.

Had a look at other things which may suit this deck. Goblin Glory Chaser isn't exactly awesome but menace is decent enough. Monastery Swiftspear may be useful if you cast a spell or two. Nyxborn Rollicker is decent for a pump and survives if Enchanted creature dies (still costs a huuuge 2 to be bestowed though and not that good on it's own). Reckless Waif  Flip gets bigger but in my experience Werewolves aren't exactly reliable. Skin Invasion  Flip looks interesting but requires a creature's death, which seems bad at first but if you put it onto Vexing Devil...

Well that's the Red cards with a CMC of 1. May look at Green and White laters.
