Phyrexian Metamorph Discussion

casmiel on (Tips?) WIP: W/B Angels and Demons

I'd say keep out the entire reanimation package if you are not running Gifts Ungiven, Collective Brutality or similar cards to dump your creatures and Unburial Rites into the graveyard (Animate Dead is also not Modern legal). It's also a bit counterintuitive with Heartless Summoning, as that only works if you cast the creatures themselves. Odric, Lunarch Marshal is a win-more card. If you have 2-3 creatures on the battlefield to really take advantage of him, you should pretty much have won the game by that point anyways, since all of them are really powerful. Lone Rider  Flip is a bit unreliable also, it doesn't really align with the rest of your gameplan too much. Angelic Purge has better alternatives and you want to keep your permanents, since all of them are very valuable. Oblivion Ring for example, is already way better. The Sorin planeswalkers are a bit outclassed by Liliana and Gideon walkers outside of token decks, but it should be allright.

Now as to what you should add instead: You need a way to keep the enemy under control until you have enough mana to cast your big creatures. Therefore, you need boardwipes like Wrath of God or Damnation, probably 3 or 4 even. Fatal Push and Path to Exile are also important in keeping you alive early, or you will get run over by aggressive creatures like Death's Shadow. Blessed Alliance is good because it kills something and can gain you an additional turn through Lifegain. What you also want is some copies of Inquisition of Kozilek in the mainboard so you can do something about your opponent's strategy and removal spells. Phyrexian Metamorph is generally a strong card in Heartless Summoning decks, it effectively costs you 1 mana to copy any of your big creatures, which is a great deal. Myr Superion is also often seen in such decks, but can a bit unreliable. If it all comes together you get a really powerful creature on Turn 2 though.

Good luck!

JimmyRustle The deck idea is pretty cool and I am sure it does a lot for it's limited cost. I can see Phyrexian Metamorph do a lot in this deck, it might be worth the investment! Have you refined it in the last few months of playing and still found it worthwhile?

Would Ethersworn Canonist be good in the sideboard + Phyrexian Metamorph is good with Grand Architect as well as Etherium Sculptor

not sure the explore/traverse/bird package is enough to make green worth pushing. especially when you have artifact "ramp" in the form of cards like Etherium Sculptor, Semblance Anvil, Cloud Key and Foundry Inspector to help push things along (and even the urza lands?)

The thopter/sword combo is a nice touch, but Grand Architect allows you to make infinite mana/tokens with the combo and Disciple of the Vault lets you kill an opponent at instant speed. and while Spellskite is solid at protecting the combo but Ethersworn Canonist and counterspells/removal would help solidify the base.

I might have tried to shoehorn in the Sharuum+Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Blasting Station loop/combo that gives the deck more options for winning and integrates Sharuum into the core of the deck rather then just a part of the 60, but thopter/sword isnt worth muddling the mixture for.

I still feel like it's not worth it to build Marchesa as a Twin deck when decks with more colors can play the Twin plan faster and more consistently. The commander really supports an all-in build-around plan. Something like Mindslicer or Apocalypse will usually win you the game as long as you get your value engine online, and cutting slow duds like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed lets your deck be mostly cantrips and value creatures which can quickly find your 1-card wincons.

Anyway, tappedout pinged me, so i'm back again to plead and beg you to at least play Dark Confidant, Trinket Mage, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Metamorph, Mindslicer, and Bribery. They're all, in my humble opinion, far too good to pass up on in any Marchesa deck. Trinket Mage getting Mana Crypt or Sol Ring is a thousand times better than a 2 mana rock (that you're playing instead of curving out with creatures) and Mindslicer is a pretty easy way to beat Bojuka Bog and other reactive nonsense, and before I start ranting again, I'll suggest cutting Olivia, Yahenni, Grimgrin, Treasonous Ogre, Blood Artist, Martyr of Frost, and River Kelpie, which I consider your worst 7 non-combo cards, but also consider dropping all the combos and just going with the "I win" spells.

It's also possible that I place too much emphasis on Marchesa in my playstyle, and I've certainly played games where the table made me their enemy and shut down my value engine, so maybe playing a combo backup plan is worth it. It just feels to me like if you're playing creature combo you should be playing some sort of green deck for Birthing Pod or Survival of the Fittest or Food Chain etc etc

Perhaps Sakashima's Student instead of Phyrexian Metamorph? It fits the ninja subtheme and has an additional surprise factor, not to mention it usually will only cost you two mana.

Bumpinator I really trust play without signets, Lantern and Lotus is crazy, in many situations I had Gilded Lotus + Phyrexian Metamorph, which really ramp us. I prefer to play signets like mana dork for the simple reason that I play in a very control meta and the creatures are too easy to be destroy.However I agree with you on the choise to play Jace, the Mind Sculptor and i will probably run it inside.Now I m trying to finish my Kynaios and Tiro EDH after that I will probably have a serious power up of Maelstrom too.Thanks for the suggest!!
