Omen Machine


Players can't draw cards.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player exiles the top card of his or her library. If it's a land card, the player puts it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, the player casts it without paying its mana cost if able.

This deck is incredibly brilliant. However... Your main way to win is easily countered by cards such as Underrealm Lich , Omen Machine , Dredge comboed off with Lotleth Troll , and those darn players who run Jace, Wielder of Mysteries / Laboratory Maniac . All of which, I do.

But I guess that's the rule of thumb in EDH. Whatever you do, someone else can counter.

Bchong This list has been altered many times to fit the power level of my play group and my local LGS.

Mystic Remora Rest in Peace Imprisoned in the Moon Luminarch Ascension Omen Machine along with others have cycled through my deck.

The heavy reliance on Rise of the Second Sun is a designed weakness, if I constantly show up with a heavy stax deck that dominates my meta, I will suddenly find less games to play. This Deck is a puzzle to solve. I really like playing it. I like trying to figure out how to not die, how much game control is too much. Only after I solve that puzzle can I think about closing a game....

or just ramp, tutor, sun, tutor, sun.

Omen Machine locks your opponents out of doing anything.

I'm digging the invincible and destroy all mashed together. Creates strong board control and allows you to swing uncontested.

Fist, I've noticed you're running 46 lands, which is quite a few. I think you could cut down to 38 very easily, especially if you cut a few of the larger CMC spells in favor of cheaper alternatives.

So what would I spend those 8 land slots on? Tutors and ramp.

Enlightened Tutor Open the Armory will both help you find Darksteel Plate or Worldslayer

Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map tutor you to your special lands. Tithe can help you with card advantage.

Serenity could be a hot include too for more control. Porphyry Nodes works in a similar vein for creatures and probably combos better with your deck. Planar Collapse is another cheap wiper that can clear the board for you.

Knight of the Holy Nimbus works surprisingly well here too.

I don't think you actually want All Is Dust for this deck! Your commander flipped is a white permanent, and sacrifice goes through indestructible! One of the lower cost mass destruction ( Porphyry Nodes / Planar Collapse ) could easily fit this slot if you didn't use it to replace some plains. Fiend Hunter is also an excellent choice, as it lets you reuse ETB effects by wiping the board, or gives you spot removal on an opponents problem creature.

Not a fan of Omen Machine here either. Pretty expensive for a stax type piece, would much rather see Aven Mindcensor for flash blowouts + beats or more wipes or Spirit of the Labyrinth to keep draw-hate in your list.

Emeria Shepherd Adarkar Valkyrie and Palisade Giant could all be lower CMC creatures to smooth over your early game. Soltari Visionary could give some extra control elements, while Samurai of the Pale Curtain could help against graveyard strategies. Dust Elemental lets you reset your ETB creatures or can be flashed in at EOT before yours to prepare for a board wipe. Even Serene Master could be good for early game to help you get more to mid game!

My old roommate used to run a obnoxious deck containing Eye of the Storm , Grip of Chaos , Hive Mind . Something like that could be fun to disrupt your opponents. Perhaps Knowledge Pool could serve a similar function, along with the aforementioned Omen Machine .

Chhris on Direction / Opinions for Thantis

5 months ago

Hi folks!! I'm seeking direction + opinions + maybe even "good jobs" about my Thantis, the Warweaver deck.

Chapter 2: Xenoblade Chronicles Thantis

Commander / EDH Chhris


I'll try and surmise as succinctly as possible what I'm after: My goal with the deck is to create an atmospheric deck that seeks to install panic and confusion in my foes. I wanna do this 1. Via Thantis herself, and causing my foes to attack each round, 2. via effects like Possessed Portal and Omen Machine to stall their plans and force them to adapt. 3. To be the only one thriving in this atmosphere by controlling the combat step. This is my goal. I would appreciate any tips or tricks for doing this better :)
