Oppression Discussion

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

MightyDarknut The deck you describe would never need Shirei and would be better as a Sidisi shell. Trying to involve Shirei means that one of 3 main stategies come into play:

1 - Go for a reanimator style list, with minor control elements. Abuse Apprentice Necromancer to the maximum, and have Shirei as a minor value pieces with some combo lines with Razaketh, the Foulblooded sacrificing creatures that trigger Shirei, so if the combo is disrupted, you have some board state to go off on your next turn. It could be a good mono-black combo list, as good as mono-black combo lists are in general, and can even have some very limited use for Shirei.

2 - Go for a stax list, abusing Shirei about as much as competitively viable as possible, trying to get good cards (think Bone Shredder ) that have innate value without Shirei and also a lot with, maybe 10-15 of these good useful creatures exist that work with Shirei and also aren't dead without like Heap Doll . Then run cards like Contamination , Smokestack , etc. and maybe even some hate pieces like Lethal Vapors if you are feeling... 'Out there.' Finish the deck off with a various amount of non-shirei based stax pieces like Sphere of Resistance , Thorn of Amethyst , Damping Matrix , Oppression , Bottomless Pit , Leyline of the Void , Chalice of the Void etc. and a large amount of instant speed interaction to hopefully survive the early game like Fatal Push , Dismember , Warping Wail , etc.

3 - Go with a Midrange combo list. Try to find some value-oriented creatures and a mix of interaction, maybe a few minor stax pieces that don't affect you, and then a bunch of tutors to find some hyper-card-efficient combo that may or may not interact with Shirei. Try some Ad Nauseam storm maybe, maybe a Buried Alive combo, who knows. Make it survive the early game a get their turns 4-5 for the midgame win, with a decent controlling backbone to lie on when you can't combo out as early as you would want, due to a stax piece you need removed or whatever.

@Osbert You're right I do need to add more graveyard hate for sure. I really wish Leyline of the Void would get reprinted so I could justify buying one.

As for the ramp I am trying to be cautious since I am already at a point where my curve is pushing the high end.

The Goblin Assault was added as filler since someone made a suggestion that I needed to have something to help with my early game but cards like Tainted AEther would help with that problem.

I love the Oppression suggestion and maybe Painful Quandary (concerned about my avg cmc costs). If I did add enough discard, then I could add Archfiend of Ifnir but im not sure I want to really go full discard.

Your suggestions were useful though thanks for the help!

Low creature count allows you to punish value recursion and go wide decks. Play AEther Flash, Tainted AEther, Pyrohemia, etc.

Neheb, the Eternal and Cabal Coffers are notably missing for mana ramp.

If MLD is acceptable in your playgroup you could run a few and play them when you stick a strong enchantment like Revel in Riches or Black Market to pull ahead. In that case play ones that destroy everything but enchantments like Obliterate and Decree of Annihilation.

No grave hate which is a bit dangerous. Run at least a Nihil Spellbomb, Rakdos Charm, and Bojuka Bog.

Fervor and Goblin Assault aren't doing much for you in a control shell. I could see the need for a token producer if you were playing Smokestack and friends but on your current build it only creates a suicide grunt.

If you want to pursue the discard route I suggest Oppression, Painful Quandary, and Words of Waste, Waste Not, and Myojin of Night's Reach. If you're going for reanimator I'd suggest Anvil of Bogardan as well to get the plays going faster.

DangoDaikazoku: I've tested out Oppression in my initial list but it kinda is a nonbo with the constant Ghostly Flicker lock I'm trying to get. Bottomless Pit is the same deal, randomly discarding into one of my key bounce spells is more detrimental than disruption. I do like the idea of either Necrogen Mists or Liliana of the Veil...need to start finding spaces for them. Chains is unfortunately too expensive for me but will definitely be a strong consideration once I've saved enough to get one. Thanks! :)

Have you considered effects like Necrogen Mists, Oppression, Bottomless Pit, Words of Waste, Liliana of the Veil, and Chains of Mephistopheles for more recurring discard?

Also congrats on getting the number one position on the top decks list on the homepage! :)

The talisman was most definitely meant to be Talisman of Indulgence. Oppression and Eidolon of the Great Revel would be excellent! I had forgotten about them.

Was Talisman of Dominance supposed to be Talisman of Indulgence?

Would Eidolon of the Great Revel have a place? Its another punisher for that cheaper, targeted removal. And if you're willing to play Sire Of Insanity then maybe Oppression finds a home. Everlasting Torment so the punishing damage sticks? And Glacial Chasm and Koskun Falls I think would both play well with the sit back and watch the world burn plan you envision.

Aphoticate Jeleva is probably the best pure storm deck, but I am not a fan in tier 1, it is relatively consistent, yes, but I doubt that alone is what is cared about. I just think after playtesting the deck a lot, it falls to a lot of stax really hard, moreso than other combo decks, almost any stax hits it, from Null Rod, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Stony Silence, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Arcane Laboratory, Vryn Wingmare, Lodestone Golem, Armageddon, Static Orb, Stasis, Winter Orb, Rule of Law, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Notion Thief, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Ethersworn Canonist, Glowrider, Chains of Mephistopheles, Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage, Leyline of the Void, Chalice of the Void, Trinisphere, Oppression, Bottomless Pit, Liliana of the Veil, etc.

Tons of hate hurts storm waay more than other decks, as they try to abuse the game the most, the game's anti-abusers hurt it the most in response.
