Rafiq of the Many Discussion

darmpark Looks like fun! Though one of the cards is now banned Prophet of Kruphix but if your playgroup is fine with it then power to ya! I was also going to mention that Questing Phelddagrif isn't Legendary but then I saw the reason in the comments lol.

Also just to touch on your earlier comment, I actually like Phelddagrif more then Rafiq of the Many Mostly because I can bounce him to my hand for one blue which is super strong in my opinion in commander. But I also.... Flying purple hippo too awesome not to. LOL

It kinda makes me sad that Rafiq of the Many can't fit in this deck.

Flagellum on Final Deck Input

1 week ago

Trying to determine my final deck as my meta seems to have disbanded. Problem is I have several projects going that aren't finished which will end up being melted for this last one. Trying to do something different from my other decks for a little variety but if they rely on the same strategy then that's okay. Budget should be kept around $15 per card max since this is my last hooray so to speak. However, I do own most of the staples so any suggestion will be considered. Here are the decks I currently run:

Decks I Currently Run

Purphoros, God of the Forge: my main man. Token spam and by far my favorite deck.

Karametra, God of Harvests: big stompies and land ramp.

Rafiq of the Many: enchantress voltron. Though even an enchantress can be suited up and work just as well should Rafiq keep eating removal.

Karlov of the Ghost Council: extort/lifegain with a touch of voltron and combo.

The Gitrog Monster: dredge/Dakmor Salvage combo deck. Very dependable and its a frog.

Breya, Etherium Shaper: my most competitive (aside from Gitrog and Purph) combo artifact deck

Edric, Spymaster of Trest: 1 drop evasive goodness

Brago, King Eternal: I've ran him very hardcore stax. While effective no one wanted to play against him so I've since lessened the stax effects.

Decks I'm Considering/Have Partly Built

Doran, the Siege Tower: big butts matter. Lots of Meekstone effects or power based wraths. What I have built seems inconsistent probably in part to vanilla critters with high toughness. That's great if Doran is out but otherwise not so great. I Don't want to go voltron bc I have Rafiq and Karlov nor do I want a good stuff build as that gets rather pricey.

Seton, Krosan Protector: ramp with big stomp finishers. What I have built seems consistent but you may have to dig to find a win con. Stax effects through Hall of Gemstone/Ritual of Subdual. Only concern is it is similar to Karametra aside from using creature ramp as opposed to land ramp. However, the synergy is pretty impressive and can lead to explosive plays.

Talrand, Sky Summoner: lots of bounce but entirely commander dependent. Could go Polymorph tucking a drake with use of Proteus Staff to whip out bombs. No real fast win con though. I've built this before and it was hilarious but it ended up getting pieced apart for other decks.

Or any other ideas anyone else has. The above 3 decks are mostly built already just needs finishing.

Not sure if you're going for a Voltron-ish deck here with slamming constant counters on her or just your creatures in general. I assumed because her cheap ability it was to boost her, in which case, having much more creatures with Exalted would boost her. Best example is Rafiq of the Many, whom I myself have an exalted focused deck and it's very fun to play.

Of course that would mean you would only attack with one creature per turn to get the exalted counters, but you would also get double strike thanks to Rafiq.

other than that, I would say your best bet is to put a few more proliferate and +1/+1 counter spells rather than that many creatures or lands, but I could be wrong on that, so take from that what you will.

Look to Green and Blue for counters and proliferating, maybe to even out your colors a bit more, but that's up to you. I really like the idea this deck is presenting.

I have been considering building a Rafiq of the Many, my main hesitation has been the tremendous overlap with my Tactical Beauty deck with is my pride and joy.

I am curious what does this deck struggle most with and what do you usually play against?

I have 4 Aether Vials (darksteel) I am selling. I would prefer money, but I can make a trade with some cards I need for my Glittering Wish deck. Some cards inside that deck I would consider trading for are: Glittering Wish, Meddling Mage, Rafiq of the Many, Pillar of the Paruns, Bring to Light, Ajani Vengeant, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Dryad Militant, Serum Visions, Path to Exile, Saffi Eriksdotter, Collected Company, Gemstone Caverns, and Supreme Verdict.

Abundance can be swapped out for AEtherize pretty easily to hose aggro decks a little better.

Blue Sun's Zenith is pretty solid, though if you are going for recursion options Pull from Tomorrow fills the role better and can be hit with Muddle the Mixture

Constant Mists, Spore Frog, Fog Bank can help you against aggro decks. 1v1 the only fast decks that gave me huge issue were Rafiq of the Many and Zurgo Helmsmasher if my starting hand was bad. If they hit their rocks and acceleration they swing for lethal turn 4, but one wrench throws that tempo off balance.

Overall I don't see many true to form aggro decks often, most swingy decks tend to peak at around turn 6 (xenagod, kaarthas, samut). If you feel that sort of thing coming, the best i can recommemd is to hold off playing kruphix until after hosing their tempo or killing/countering their commander.
