Thorbogl on The Ur-Tribal - Ur-Dragon Shenanigans

Actually i considered the merfolk ones but due to I left them out.Aswell because I prefer lords with static abilitys that are always good, indestructible and vigilance and so on. If you're facing a more blue oriented playgroup and have some fetches and shocks to upgrade the mana base these can definitly replace some other lords.

Sliver Overlord may find it's way, as hes a repeatable tutor for mana and basically all my changelings. Problem might be I'm struggling to find room for Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Reaper King and maybe some more lands, but I have to playtest first to decide.

Thanks for the suggestions, it's greatly appreciated

Personally I do like 'walkers'. If you only have one, chances of drawing them are pretty low (unless you tutor) and due to their strength they can spice up a game very suddenly.However, I think one is enough. When I draw a planeswalker while already being in a better sport than my enemy, I don't play it, or at least I don't overuse it. It is cool, however, to draw one, when you're really in a bad spot and the Walker is just the support you needed. My Changeling-Destroy is probably not a good deck compared to what others might have, but I still love to play it, and Reaper King + any scarecrow/changeling + Venser, the Sojourner ist just a nice combo.

NoPlanB513 on Scarecrow -1/-1 counters edh deck ...

3 weeks ago

Hello community

I have a Reaper King scarecrow tribal edh deck that I am turning into a -1/-1 counters scarecrows edh deck. I am going to be running The Scorpion God, Flourishing Defenses, Nest of Scarabs, Parallel Lives, Grim Poppet, Conspiracy and Xenograft, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Fevered Convulsions , Blowfly Infestation Everlasting Torment and other things like Wither and Persist mechanics to reap the benefits of getting -1/-1 counters. However, I need a strong finisher for this deck. Some cards I am considering are Deity of Scars , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, or maybe just sticking with The Scorpion God.

Are there any other creatures out there that might work well with this deck? Any suggestions are appreciated

I agree with sonnet666 here. We are considering the power of every commander ever printed, and demoting them just like that would be an error I think.

I think a good example is Karador. Yes, sure Thrasios + Tymna murdered him, I agree on that. But, the deck running Karador is still playable, I mean it is nowhere complete jank, and still on par with something such as The Mimeoplasm, also outclassed by Thrasios + Tymna.

I think we should calm down on demoting everything and changing everything. Let's colleclt some datas. Let's gather some decklists. Let's optimize things a little before moving that many cards around. And I won't even join the Kess discussion...

That being said, I also wanted to comment about two commanders that have been talked about recently, Dralnu, Lich Lord and Reaper King.

Even if some people are not considering it really good, I like Dralnu quite a lot. He offers some potential of a cheap, easy to build UB storm deck which might be a good entry point for cEDH, a good way to learn how to play storm and Doomsdayon a somewhat budget (like I am forced on now because of school). However, like it have been said before me, it has a pretty huge drawback. If ever damage was to be dealt to him, we are pretty dead. Sacrificing our board to a damage spell would be pretty bad. Sure, I have not saw a lot of damage spells in cEDH (except for the ones mentionned by sonnet666, even those I have not really seen...). Definitely does not belongs to tier 4. I would agree on moving this commander up to tier 2.5. He is not the most powerful cEDH deck ever built. However, the deck can win without the commander, and if the commander survives to untap, it is pretty much a guaranteed win, since we could go double High Tideand double Bubbling Muckin a single turn, Paradox Engine...

Now, onto Reaper King. There definitely is some sleeping potential over there. Food Chain generating so much mana from our commander... We have seen what 5c Chain decks are available (just take a look at General Tazri if you don't know what I mean). Sure, the deck will be nowhere as strong, but I definitely think there are a lot of things that could be done with it. I am not sure going for a BloodPod deck is the best idea, even if it seems attracting. I will have to look more in depths to it before moving it though, it is too early to say. But it has a lot of potential.

Your manabase seems fine to me. Although I am a little surprised to see both Blood Moons in a 5C deck. Do you have trouble bringing Reaper King out with those in play?

I'm on board with moving Reaper King to T2.

n0bunga, I just think we should give reversemermaid the opportunity to update his deck for Kess first if he wants to. Especially since the new example deck for Jeleva would be best as something other than Grixis Storm, since continuing to use her as a placeholder now would be a misrepresentation of her as a commander.

MillionLittleE, You deck is more optimized that the one we have up for sure, although I do have some suggestions and might hit up your comment section later.

I'll switch your's in. However, would you mind writing a bit more in your description? The reason I went with the deck we have up is it has a really good stax primer in the description, and it would be sad to lose that without replacing it with anything. You don't have to write an essay or anything, but a closer look at how the deck runs would be helpful.

Well that Reaper King list came out of nowhere! Nice job! I support moving him up, though jumping to Tier 1.5 seems fast. Tier 2 would be safer, then we can move him up further as we get news of how he performs.

Ok so viperfang4, your decklist is really cool. I have been brewing a 5c artifacts combo deck with Reaper King as my commander for so long and never thought about Food Chain (I don't know why but...)

I like your decklist a lot. Except for the manabase, it is a pretty easy to build cEDH deck, which is even more cool.

Reaper King for sure will move around if more people join us, but I am sure it could at least be moved to tier 2. I really like your list, and can't wait for a primer.

Oh and sorry if my comment seems strange, my gf forced me to drink while I was preparing sushis, that's why. Sushis where good BTW.
