SynergyBuild on Fixing White in EDH

6 days ago

enpc And with newer colorless card draw becoming much better, modern playable Mazemind Tome, EDH specific Endless Atlas, and older Sensei's Divining Top/Scroll Rack always being powerful options!

Things that synergize with white's effects like counters with Mindless Automaton, lifegain with Well of Lost Dreams, and tokens or small dudes with Skullclamp, that or Sword of Fire and Ice for equipment strategies, Smuggler's Copter and Bonders' Enclave for other strategies.

And in white, after looking it up for Omniscience_is_life, here is my new, semi-educated package:

Land Tax, Mangara, the Diplomat, Alms Collector, Weathered Wayfarer, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Sram, Senior Edificer, Stonehewer Giant, Dawn of Hope, Puresteel Paladin, Mentor of the Meek, Bygone Bishop, Luminarch Ascension, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Sun Titan, Sevinne's Reclamation, Ranger of Eos, and Castle Ardenvale

Not to mention tutors being Weathered Wayfarer/Ranger of Eos being tutors, alongside Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Recruiter of the Guard, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Academy Rector, Arena Rector, Call the Gatewatch, Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Heliod's Pilgrim, Quest for the Holy Relic, Three Dreams, Boonweaver Giant, Auratouched Mage, Djeru, With Eyes Open, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Thalia's Lancers, Totem-Guide Hartebeest, Relic Seeker, Priest of the Wakening Sun, Forerunner of the Legion, Ignite the Beacon, Plea for Guidance, Kithkin Harbinger, etc.

Oh, and there is more, just look!

enpc on Fixing White in EDH

mccabej140: White has pure card draw in the forms of Mentor of the Meek, Wall of Omens, Bygone Bishop, Alms Collector, Dawn of Hope, Mangara, the Diplomat, Thraben Inspector, Scout's Warning and To Arms! (from a quick gatherer search).

In addition, it has artifact and enchantment based draw/tutor in the form of Enlightened Tutor, Sram, Senior Edificer, Puresteel Paladin, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress to name a few.

That seems like plenty of options for card draw/tutors in white. And while seom of these are limitied to artifacts/equipment, you can't just write these off becuase your specific deck isn't heavy in that area. It's like saying that green's tutoring is crap becuase you can't tutor instants despite thefact that green has some of the best creature tutors.

"Fun" is also not an argument here. Just becuase you haven't played with or against stax decks and just becuase you don't find them fun does not mean that that you can just write the entire acrhitype off. There are plenty of people who really enjoy playing those decks and now you're effectively telling those people how to play Magic.

Some players don't like counterspells - does that mean that we shouldn't play them? Now blue has a big void until late game. Blue needs more ramp! it has to rely on artifacts, that's not fair to blue!

But the above logic is flawed. Counterspells exist and giving blue ramp would make it more powerful. Just like giving white a crapload of unrestriced draw. Stax exists and you can't just pretend it doesn't becuase you don't like playing it/against it. White exists on a balance between having draw and having stax and that balance is important.

channelfireball12345: see above.

I would ask the question to everyone here - if white has such bad card draw, then what's stopping you from splashing a second colour to fix the deficit? Why is there such a push to build mono-white decks?

multimedia on Elsha's Infinite Voltron

Hey, nice version of Elsha. I saw your forum topic asking for help with cuts.

Six cards to cut to make 100 cards:

  • Remember the Fallen: lackluster recursion.
  • Danitha Capashen, Paragon: doesn't reduce all artifact casting costs only equipment which makes her not as good as other cost reducers since she doesn't work with the Top combo.
  • Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin: creature who's not good enough to disrupt Elsha.
  • Ghostly Prison: I don't think you need both Prison and Propaganda, one could be cut.
  • Blackblade Reforged: only good if you have a lot of lands, but you don't want a lot of lands with Elsha.
  • Basilisk Collar: not a fan unless you're playing ways to take advantage of deathtouch and you can get lifelink from better equipment.

When you want more cuts look to reducing some redundancy:

All the Swords in the cycle can be good for different budgets, but when you have the three better expensive price ones then you don't need to play the others. Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of War and Peace, Sword of Truth and Justice are not as good as the others and could be cut.


Some cards to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

zapyourtumor on Kefnet The Equiped

3 weeks ago

The deck does seem a bit all over the place though. I'm not really seeing the synergy between Kefnet the Mindful and equipment? Why is stacking equipments on kefnet good besides the fact that it has indestructible? Plus, what do you do if your hand has less than seven cards? (which will happen a lot) This makes all ur stuff on kefnet useless if it cant attack or block.

Porphyry Nodes is one of my favorite cards, but here it'll just kill off ur PP (haha funny yes) which we sort of want to keep on the battlefield as a draw engine. Not sure why there's 4x Fact or Fiction either.

You should probably include some spot removal like Path to Exile. Budget option is Condemn. Some sweepers better than fumigate are Wrath of God and Day of Judgment.

Problem with equipment on a budget is that most of the only decent equipments (Batterskull, enemy-colored mirrodin swords like Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice etc) are all expensive and basically only work well with stuff like Stoneforge Mystic. If you're leaning into the Puresteel Paladin 0 equip cost, you can run stuff like Colossus Hammer. Dunno

You could say Hammer of Nazahn, Sigarda's Aid, and Puresteel Paladin are also staples. But that's because boros decks often include equipment.

Actually performed pretty decently in playtesting

Have you considered Puresteel Paladin for extra copies of Sram, Senior Edificer? (although it doesn't trigger off of Ensoul Artifact)

Also maybe a single Grapeshot for the storm kill to finish off an opponent?

StopShot on Maro teases about upcoming Zendikar …

1 month ago

His teaser thread here: Blogatog

Not sure if this marks the start of spoiler season and if this makes this thread the official Zendikar Rising spoilers thread, but I really wanted to discuss about the contents of his teaser here.


"The return of four mana symbols that have each only ever been used on two cards before"

has only been printed on two cards before. Blightsteel Colossus, It That Betrays. (Are they low-key printing some 4th Eldrazi titan that we're only now just finding out about?)


"Lands that come with a choice you’ve never had before"

I suppose they're not going to be completing any of the unfinished Future Sight lands. (Horizon Canopy, Grove of the Burnwillows, Nimbus Maze, Wizards when?) I'm predicting we're going to get a land cycle that behaves just like a shockland, but instead of paying life you can choose to give your opponent 3 life for it to come in untapped. Zendikar is known for being an aggro-heavy plane, so I don't see extra life gain dragging games out too long. It matches flavorfully too as the lands on Zendikar must now be healing after the eldrazi menace.


"Targeted enchantment removal in black"

I guessing it's going to be a common instant at that reads "Destroy target enchantment." and this card is going to be thrown into reprint hell similarly to red's Shatter.


"A red/white creature with a line of rules text that starts with “Whenever” and ends with “draw a card”"

Best case scenario we're getting an upgraded Mentor of the Meek, likely case scenario another Puresteel Paladin-esque creature, and worst case scenario an Academy Raider with vigilance instead of intimidate. Place your bets on which one it will be.


There's plenty more I didn't cover, but those are the ones that got the most of my attention. What do you guys think?
