Obelisk of Urd Discussion

PlutoniumWedding on Neheb, the Worthy

Just in case you weren't aware, you're not allowed to run Behind the Scenes according to official EDH rules since it has white in its colour identity.

Among recent-ish cards that your local store is reasonably likely to have, I would recommend Neheb, the Eternal for both theme and great ramp. Having playtested against the deck it also feels like it could use more card draw, and I would recommend Erebos, God of the Dead or Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or any other Greed -variant they might have in.

Speaking of, Whip of Erebos could help you gain back that life you paid and works great with your Sanguine Bond and Epicure of Blood .

Hazoret's Monument can ramp early and get rid of excess lands for more gas later. Pseudo-draw from Outpost Siege or Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip would probably also do very well.

Angrath's Marauders are a one-sided damage doubler with a flavour connection to Angrath.

Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic and Obelisk of Urd are tribal staples and can help your minotaurs get big enough to attack through small or medium creatures. Stoneforge Masterwork is also solid. Door of Destinies and Shared Animosity are the big boys of tribal buffs, but since they're a bit older they can be harder to find, and the latter is quite expensive as well.

While a bit more pricey, Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (and the very expensive Gauntlet of Might ) are powerful in both boosting your mana and your creatures. Crypt Ghast only does one of the two, but costs a bit less and is slightly easier to find. (Note that the symbol is in reminder text and does not give the card a white colour identity).

I hope I've given you some ideas!

YamishiTheWickedOne on Ride of the Vampiries

I actually really like Selfless spirit and Mentor of the Meek here. Though, your mana curve is kinda steep. I feel 1-2 mana vamps and lots of them is good with Edgar. toss on lords and anthem effects galore for ridicolous damage and skullclamp + shared animosity for maximum impact while refilling your hand constantly. 30+ low cost vamps will have you oneshotting people on turn 3-4 in some cases. Also cards like Enlightened Tutor Stoneforge Mystic will greatly help consistency. Like I don't even run mana rocks and I can kill a player a turn with minimal setup. Mirror Entity and Obelisk of Urd are also favorites. I'll still give you +1 for a few clever tech ideas with your creatures.

BigBoyBeau on Hyper Markov

Thank you for your thoughts noahbaine21 and IceIceJay. I keep Coat of Arms because I've yet to be outnumbered by other tribes when the vampires are on curve. Several new 1 and 2 CMC vampires have just been released to bolster the early game. Keep in mind that Edgar Markov provides you an additional vampire token every time you cast a vampire, which means you could attack with 10 or more vampires and have Coat of Arms out by turn 4 or 5. Other good options are Radiant Destiny , Obelisk of Urd , Eldrazi Monument , and Reconnaisance.

LittleBlueHero on Tribal shapeshifter buffs

I was pondering this the other day, with Morophon, the Boundless coming out I thought why not? They show up in all 5 colors, every tribal buff can be relevant if you are using changelings, plus some of them are just plain cute.

In the same vein as your Dragon Tempest you should look at Sarkhan Unbroken . His ult would be super beneficial... same with the original Nissa Revane ult. And if you like the not dragon but they are dragons theme you could also run the partners Khorvath Brightflame and Sylvia Brightspear

Lords that offer more than +1/+1 like Sliver Hivelord , Knight Exemplar or Aryel, Knight of Windgrace are good choice but obviously you don't want too many clogging up your creature base.

The you have your usual suspects Obelisk of Urd , Herald's Horn , Shared Animosity and the like.

Im not sure how to build it just yet but I feel like it could be a lot of fun.

Additionally, more tribal staples could give your saboteur the "oomph" it neeeds. Stoneforge Masterwork is a thought, as is Obelisk of Urd . Metallic Mimic will give you additional +1's on each merfolk, so very worth running. Look into "tribal anthem"'s
