DarkStarStorm on Tetsuko Extra Turns

2 weeks ago

I guess that my quandry is that most of the 1/1s you have already have built-in evasion. These are the only ones that you have that don't (discounting Timestream Navigator because it's not there to attack).

  • Eternal of Harsh Truths
  • Master of Waves
  • Raven Guild Master
  • Salvage Drone
  • Scroll Thief
  • Shorecrasher Elemental

A quick gander at EDHREC shows some cards that are crazy when paired with Tetsuko.

Some card Suggestions for you

hope this helps you out I have a similar deck that I went a different direction with if you're interested it's here https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/this-is-the-turn-that-never-ends-1/. Enjoy your Games

P.S. I saw this deck off commander replay.

I would take a look at my boy Sram, Senior Artificer. He will draw you a truckload of cards while you suit up your pupper. He also has a neat interaction with flickering ward to continually draw cards.

Renounce the Guilds is a fun "Gotha" card and is excellent at killing commanders.

If you are into infect, Grafted Exoskeleton will get you there.

Hero's Blade is like a permanent buff to your commander and the auto equip is great.

Quietus Spike will instantly kill an opponent above 40 life and is a huge threat by itself.

I'm finding Quietus Spike a bit too slow for all the hate it draws and I'm thinking Spellbinder can replace it along with some heavy hitting instants like Supplant Form or Scour from Existence and Nexus of Fate as a win condition. Anyone have any experience with Spellbinder and how'd it work out for you?

SynergyBuild on Tishana's Token Madness

1 month ago

This deck is split two ways that don't really compliment each other. You have the value-oriented Blue-Green goodstuff, a great place for Tishana, and also have some merfolk tribal cards tossed in, despite only having 20 merfolk, you have 15 cards that want you to have merfolk. I'd suggest switching your commander for Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca and add more merfolk instead of the equipment and non-merfolk creatures, and drop the +1/+1 counter theme with cards like Bioshift, or move into the Blue-Green Value list, drop the merfolk tribal, and all of the less-than-great merfolk, and run more mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf, Boreal Druid, Elvish Mystic, etc. to quickly cast Tishana and refill your hand.

You could also just go +1/+1 counters, but that doesn't synergize heavily with your list, considering only two cards of your even can have +1/+1 counters, your commander and Prime Speaker Zegana.

Cards to drop no matter what really would be Bioshift, Mu Yanling, Quietus Spike, Levitation, Pause for Reflection, Cancel, Exclude, Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip, Might of the Masses, Treasure Hunt, and Crashing Tide

For more countermagic, Arcane Denial is really good, as is Swan Song, more removal would be like Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, and Imprisoned in the Moon the last two of which can turn off commanders, because you are just enchanting them, but they aren't leaving anywhere. They also lose all other types and abilities as they turn into lands, so they are effectively useless.

Rhadamanthus on Neheb + Quietus Spike

1 month ago

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to create a pop-up for it. It's the easiest way to help make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: Neheb, the Eternal, Quietus Spike

Yes, you will get mana for the life loss caused by Quietus Spike. Neheb's ability doesn't say the life had to be lost for any specific reason, so that means it will count life lost for any reason.

@Kederekt: o_0|||

Um... I really need to rename my deck completely if Tetsu-chan is actually Tetsu-kun... Is Tetsuko Umezawa really a Dude? I'll see to it to rename my deck as if my perception of the commander is false. I just want other proof first...

The rest of the comment? Quietus Spike looks like it won't just be for Gorm or Virtus anymore... I wonder what Twisted Image does... I'll edit the comment to find out...

Okay, it seems to be another target for Isochron Scepter. So I can reuse this w/o fail while I have Paradox Engine in play... Thanks. :)
