Raven Guild Master Discussion

PhotogenicParasympathetic on Who is your favourite "Uncommander?"

lifemtg: Lol, my bad - I read that as "commanders that aren't commonly played" not "commanders that are uncommons."

'S not for normal commander, but Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor is a sweet oathbreaker/commander in a playgroup that will allow it. Lots of proliferate to keep her going, she smooths out your draws while dropping tokens for protection, and her passive helps protect important creatures like Laboratory Maniac etc.

And of course, there's Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , and all the 1 power/toughness creatures, like Rootwater Thief , Scalpelexis , Raven Guild Master , Mindshrieker , etc.

My nekusar deck The Old Grixis Mill has worked well as a mill deck. Raven Guild Master, Rogue's Passage and Whispersilk Cloak are good affordable cards. There are a few higher end mill cards in that deck and in my Sidisi's Milkshake which is a self mill themed muldrotha deck.

Whispersilk Cloak and Raven Guild Master are great cards in momo blue mill.

Yeesh, I've gotten behind on answering comments here!

Regoober and Doctorlobo89: Aww, I'm flattered :D You should try building this - it's pretty darn fun and strong!

jakethewhale007: Honestly, Raven Guild Master is there to mess with combo decks. I keep hitting people and exiling Food Chains :3 It is one of the weaker cards here, but people's reactions are too amusing for me to stop playing it.

ohmless: Sigil of Sleep is honestly amazing here, and Ovalchase Dragster is an unblockable 6 damage per turn. They've both proved to be pretty astonishing in this list. Imprisoned in the Moon does seem like a good addition, however.

alucardvanguard: I'm not confident in my ability to connect with Dowsing Dagger  Flip (given that it boosts their power AND toughness). Citanul Flute is actually pretty good, since I can sink mana into it in the late game if it turns out I didn't need to use a counterspell, and it always gets me the creature I need.

gdm1989: I'm afraid it can't be used :( its color identity is black.

I was thinking of another card in place of Raven Guild Master could be Balshan Beguiler, which would give you the ability to control the draws of an opponent to a small extent.

I was just wondering what purpose Raven Guild Master serves. Is it a mill strategy? Because when I compare this card to something like Phyrexian Digester, it seems like digester puts an opponent on a 5 turn clock to infect. To mill someone out, guild master would almost certainly take a couple turns longer. What purpose does he serve? It's a cool card that I'd like to run, it's just hard for me to justify the slot over a different card. Really liking the deck so far!

coolish card for tetsuko Raven Guild Master this card seems like a good way to counter several decks that are combo oriented around a single/couple cards the issue with tets is that she wants you to run on hit utility creatures, but she has no way to tutor for them easily. without the edric effect built in you have to rely on tutoring Bident of Thassa to get similar card advantage. i think that she could have a goodish gameplan against top decks, but wouldnt have the tools to actually close out a game. gameplan = run the couple cheap dudes with ingest Rootwater Thief and raven or other ways of deleting cards in deck to try to hit peoples combo pieces. like against if you can hit him twice you can exile riftsweeper and dakmoor or kozilek and gaeas. exiling food chains and such. i think low 3 high 4 is ideal placement.

Why not Raven Guild Master with Blade of Selves , Shadow Rift on Isochron Scepter , Paradox Engine, Sol Ring and Teferi's Veil

This makes for a very mean combo that can make for a great endgame with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir which you already have.
