Ob Nixilis, Unshackled Discussion

WrathofCod on shirei in refining

Oops, meant Ob Nixilis, Unshackled not the deck Ob nixilis, the unshackled! Also, you earned yourself a +1 from me for this awesome deck

And I don't know why but for some reason I thought of a combo using Maralen of the Mornsong and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. Basically force your opponent to search their library and lose exactly 13 life. You could use Maralen early game to pull out your deck's key components too and then drop an Ob Nixilis on a turn that you get your opponent to 13 life and pass the turn to them so they die. You'd need a decent amount of ramp to assemble this combo and it's a little out there I know, but it would be really cool if you could pull it off.

griffstick on "My" Top 10 mono black ...

5 days ago

Ok so Josh and Jimmy from the command zone made an episode of top 10 black and top 10 green very recently. Here's the link to the episode, click here. I want to make a similar list with a twist, using only cards with cmc 6 or greater to make this list. (Excluding cards with X in it's cost, "X" doesn't count here). If this is successful I will do every mono color for cards 6 cmc or greater. Btw I'm not bashing the command zone at all I'm a huge fan. (This list will be budget as well) no cards over 20$ US dollars... maybe

So here goes "my" top 10 mono black edh cards with total cmc 6 or greater. With 1 being the best.

All the rest after the are honorable mentions

Every card mentioned above in the top ten are based off my gameplay exp in my kitchen table metta.

I want everyone's feed back on the order, and what cards you think should make the list, and cards I missed.

Squirrel_of_War on Mogis just wants to watch the World BURN!!!

2 weeks ago

I would put some pillow fort cards in here. If you don't have a reason for a player not to attack you then you'll be target #1. Most players don't like playing against stax so they will all gang up on you. Cards like No Mercy, Vengeful Pharaoh, Dread, Crawlspace, Silent Arbiter will all detour people from targeting you. Additionally, any card that works directly with Mogis is awesome since he usually sticks around. So Blood Artist, Bloodchief Ascension, Harvester of Souls, Hissing Iguanar, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Swarm of Bloodflies, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, etc. are all a lot better when paired with Mogis. Also damage doublers will speed it up too. Wound Reflection is one you missed. If you really want to ruin people's day Stranglehold + Maralen of the Mornsong OR Ob Nixilis, Unshackled + Maralen of the Mornsong are super oppressive and awesome combos.

MagicalHacker on Help me punish mean players!

2 weeks ago

How many cards can you think of that are mean to "mean" players? I want to build a deck that forces opponents to win in "fair ways", and I'd love help finding cards for a deck like this!

Using MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Tutor Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Gold-Hate Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Infinite Cards, and MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards, I found these cards (organized by color):

White (5):
Humility
Hushwing Gryff
Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Aven Mindcensor
Spirit of the Labyrinth

Blue (2):
Mindlock Orb
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

Black (2):
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Chains of Mephistopheles

Red (10):
Harsh Mentor
Stranglehold
Blood Moon
Burning Earth
From the Ashes
Ruination
Possibility Storm
Price of Glory
Stoneshaker Shaman
War's Toll

Green (7):
Titania's Song
Wave of Vitriol
City of Solitude
Dosan the Falling Leaf
Hall of Gemstone
Heartwood Storyteller
Seedtime

Colorless (7):
Cursed Totem
Damping Matrix
Knowledge Pool
Null Rod
Torpor Orb
Omen Machine
Uba Mask

Multicolored (5):
Gaddock Teeg
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Burning-Tree Shaman
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
Vexing Shusher


Based on those cards, I think I'm going to build a gruul deck using Ruric Thar, the Unbowed as the commander or a cheap commander that can help ramp me into my cards (Radha, Heir to Keld). Some questions:

  1. Are there any other cards for gruul that you think would fit this theme?
  2. Are there any reasons to choose something other than gruul?
  3. If gruul is the best for this, what gruul commander should I use, and why?

Thanks!

griffstick on Kaervek the Merciless, BITCH!

I want to stay away from infect for now. I think it's a way to make bad blood. So I am considering about making a few changes but I don't know what to cut. I have a few cards o want to add. Ever After, Master of the Feast, Talisman of Indulgence, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, and Zo-Zu the Punisher... So @NewHorizons and anyone else who wants to add their input what do you think about the cards I want to add and what to take out for them?

TwoIdiots on Baby's First Multiplayer Cube (cards to include?)

3 weeks ago

Lots of text coming up, so get ready!

Regarding your additions:

Blood Rites and Goblin Bombardment: great in 1v1, but I think it might be a bit too all-in in multiplayer. let's discuss!

Bonfire: I don't like that it affects only one player. Very mean. Let's find a niceer alternative.

Grim Haruspex: This is a great inclusion I think. Very glad to have it in the cube :)

CHANGELOG 03/05/17

Fetchlands:

Shocklands:

Fetches means some new additions:

And just some fun stuff:

  • Pyromancer's Goggles (cool in Izzet, but maybe too narrow)
  • Lingering Souls (just value, good in many archetypes)
  • Fork (worth it? Well have to see what the spells end up looking like)
  • Reverberate (see above)
  • Commandeer (this is probably better than fork/reverberate, but who knows)
  • Misdirection (see above)
  • Combat Celebrant (Im more curious about this card than anything else)
  • Insult to Injury (great in token swarm and gruul beats)
  • Never//Return (one-for-one removal isnt great, but the additional value could be good)
  • Cut to Ribbons (kinda just want to try this)
  • Garruk Relentless  Flip (very good in Golgari sacrifice)

General notes:

I think Im pretty high on these split/modal cards. I want to use them just because theyre new, but I also I think that multi-use cards like these could be interesting because of minimized card disadvantage. What do you think?

Regarding lands: we should figure out which we want to cut. Obviously the guildgates are bad maybe we give scrylands instead? I think the tri-lands should go to reduce the amount of 4-c decks in each pod. It looks like the format will be durdly enough as it is. Speaking of durdling

I know youre not going to like this, but I think we might have to add more ways to speed up the game. I dont really want to see a format where defensive posture is the standard. Right now we have goad and rakdos to force action, but if we end up needing more I do recommend adding monarch (or something else if you have a better idea). Basically, I dont want non-red pods to play the game without pressure, so whatever we do to mitigate that risk is good for me

TwoIdiots on Baby's First Multiplayer Cube (cards to include?)

I agree with you in principle, but I am worried that "artifacts matter" cards might dilute the pool too much. I think a better approach is to find colored (and colorless) artifacts that are good regardless of whether they fit into the artifact deck, with a few payoff cards that push the archetype (like Tez, and we could also include stuff like Glissa, the Traitor if we want to open up the archetype a bit). This way you aren't locked into the archetype after your first few picks and you can draft a little less linearly. Also, if we include Glissa, then there is a stronger case for Trading Post I think, since it could also work with the Golgari Sac archetype :)

Also, I think we should include better mana alternatives to match the power level we seem to be moving towards. Shocks plus fetches? If we include fetches, then we have a great opportunity for Blood Moon, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled and Aven Mindcensor. Thoughts?
