Oona, Queen of the Fae Discussion

I love Avatar of Woe . But I also recommend reanimation effects in any mill deck, especially one that hits itself with stuff like Mesmeric Orb . This is also why I still recommend Oona, Queen of the Fae , although I still like Geth, Lord of the Vault more, but you should absolutely be running Necrotic Ooze is you have killer active abilities like these.

I also tore apart my Phenax deck because I pulled a The Scarab God and now I have a mill/self-mill/zombie token deck that I just absolutely love.

alechodgin23 I think I agree with your comment about Oona, Queen of the Fae and I didn't catch that on the Endbringer . However, I wanted to push back on Avatar of Woe . With what my deck should be able to do, I should be able to play it 99% of the time for only . So, it may be worth the shot. (maybe?) I like the idea of adding more removal. I think I need to look into that some more.. No comments on the The Haunt of Hightower or Knacksaw Clique ? :)

I personally don't like Avatar of Woe , Endbringer , or Oona, Queen of the Fae . Their Mana costs are way too high and so easy to remove. I personally don't they'll do you much good. The main reason why is because I like to keep my average comvererted Mana cost pretty low. If any of these, I'd run Endbringer but he specifically cost a diamond Mana. That's not just any Mana. That will be hard to cast a lot of the time unless you have a solid ring out which is definitely not every game.

I'd never run Avatar of Woe simply because there's so many cheap or 0 cost targeted removal spells. Time after Time, you'll cast her and she'll be removed. That's a turn wasted. I'd rather run more efficient forms of removal: Snuff Out , Sickening Shoal , Vendetta , Reality Shift , and Rapid Hybridization .

Valius & alechodgin23 - How about a The Haunt of Hightower or Knacksaw Clique to replace Sire of Stagnation ? I had also considered Avatar of Woe , Oona, Queen of the Fae and Endbringer , but feel like those first two would synergize a bit better with the rest of the deck.

*I just ordered a few replacements and will update my list once I receive them! You're suggestions are appreciated! Please don't forget to upvote my deck!

Mirko Vosk isn’t all that great unless he can connect with the opponent. You’ll do more mill with your walls than you will with him. Replace him with Avatar of Woe

Sire of Stagnation isn’t really on theme here, and is expensive. You’re better off with Lord of the Void or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger if you’re looking for an impactful creature, but I’d probably choose Geth, Lord of the Vault or Oona, Queen of the Fae since they’re more on flavor and are good mana sinks if needed.

You have very little spot removal, Hero's Downfall , Doomblade etc, so be careful there. Also, Black has access to Plague Wind In Garruk's Wake and even Mutilate , and you definitely should be running Cyclonic Rift over Aether Gale . Board wipes are important, and you’ll have the largest toughness to survive those “all creatures get -x/-x” effects, so make use of them - Toxic Deluge would probably be the absolute best.

There’s good equipment to increase toughness, like Slagwurm Armor and Accorder's Shield , and Illusionist's Bracers on a mortivor or nighthowler is potentially deadly.

Don’t forget about Laboratory Maniac , because you can mill yourself.

All those cards that mill opponents when you draw a card are taking away from other cards you need unless you’re drawing a ton of cards in a turn. Notion Thief and Teferi's Puzzle Box is the absolute best combo for dimir (imho) and pairs well with those cards, but a lack of Howling Mine like effects makes these cards less relevant to the mill from your walls. Memory Erosion will just do you more work.

Tutoring is important if you’re running combo, so don’t forget Diabolic Tutor or other expensive ones if you feel like buying them.

Bojuka Bog .

Dimir-doppleganger and Lazav, Dimir Mastermind are kind of must haves to make use of opponents’ big beefies and eldrazi (if any).

Biggest thing is just remember you’re trying to mill a billion at a time, not little bits here and there. If a card isn’t milling a ton, replace it with something else that’s more impactful. Combo pieces are nice, but without tutoring they’re unreliable.

Card I think are a MUST HAVE, though, are definitely Necrotic Ooze , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Cyclonic Rift , propoganda, Crawlspace , and Bloodchief Ascension . At least find space for those.

Hey Synergy,

First of all thanks for all the help with the deck fory little girl and second I was wondering if you had ever come across and budget list for Oona, Queen of the Fae

I already have her and was hoping to build an EDH deck for her sub 50 but I'm kinda outa my depth on where to go for it. I will continue looking for ideas but figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

First are you going for EDH/Commander or Brawl? I would guess Commander since you are running Chemister's Insight but your about 40 cards short of Commander if so. You have a good start for a commander deck, I would look at adding some additional enchantments and artifacts to your deck to capitalize on your commander's ability to add bodies to the board.

Mana Rocks are excellent ways to do this, Darksteel Ingot , Mana Geode , and Guild Lockets will be a good start, Spinning Wheel is also good for a mana rock, as with most commander decks a Sol Ring is also not a bad idea. As artifacts these all trigger your commander to get you a faerie and can set you up to cast some additional spells later on in addition to fixing your mana in a pinch. Chromatic Lantern is also great for mana fixing and cast trigger on Alela.

From there you can take one of two directions in tuning up the deck, adding some additional enchantments to cause additional cast triggers wouldn't be a bad idea either, Mirrormade can copy an enchantment or artifact you already control and triggers your commander. Rhystic Study also makes sense because it can draw you additional cards and again triggers your commander. Lightning Greaves would also make sense to protect your commander and give her haste. Blind Obedience Slows your opponents down and allows you to exploit them and pad your life total. Rankle, Master of Pranks & Oona, Queen of the Fae can add some additional bodies on board and provide you with some helpful abilities. Dance of the Manse allows you to get some of your artifacts and non-aura enchantments back from the graveyard.

Check your decklist. You have two copies of Intangible Virtue listed in your enchantments.

That being said, in Fairies is something of a trap, as there are literally only 10 Fairies with that colour in them - and Diamond Faerie with Rubinia Soulsinger also have , taking them further out of your colour identity.

I would honestly go straight Oona, Queen of the Fae if you intend to keep to the Fairies theme, and delve into the Tribal mechanic. Coat of Arms is traditional while Door of Destinies is a good alternative. Brass Herald should be a bulk Rare from 8th Edition or an Uncommon from Invasion for the budget alternative to Adaptive Automaton .

Sol Ring is printed in every Commander precon, so getting your hands on one should not be difficult or expensive, and is a good mana accelerant.
