n0bunga on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

2 days ago

Oh I knew full well what you meant with unpredictability used as a way to describe how the deck plays out - that's why I made note of decks using multiple strategies and how they fall victim to being less focused than decks with singular strategies.

As for making the most of a Nekusar deck, he was one of my first generals outside of Precon decks. And I tend to maintain the belief that a general and their deck ought to utilize their ability/strengths, otherwise you'd be just using the colours and have Nekusar as a mere shell.

That being said I've seen people incorporate 5c shells with Nekusar in the 99 as a hidden general. They're neat in their access to all colours. With Nekusar specifically, focus on his strengths. He's built primarily for Wheeling opponents. While wheeling doesn't equate to combat damage, Nekusar Infect is perhaps the most consistent and competitive way to win. gives you access to Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, Winds of Change, Fork and Wheel of Fortune; gives you Windfall, Timetwister Wheel and Deal, Twincast Jace, Memory Adept. gives you Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Waste Not, Chains of Mephistopheles, painful quandry and access to Tainted Strike, Glistening Oil and Phyresis. Hybrid colours in this Shard give you access to Whispering Madness, Notion Thief, Phyrexian Tyranny, etc.

Aggressively abusing what your general does, in my eyes, yields the best results of that general. Nekusar is designed to punish your opponents for drawing. A quick, and relatively cheap combo with Nekusar on board is Fork + Winds of Change + Tainted Strike; for you can kill an entire board with lethal infect.

Spirits on Mizzix, the Storm EDH

3 days ago

Hi xSHAMUSx, Contagion Engine is respectable, the -1/-1 is nice for defense. The proliferate 2 is nice. The main reason I don't play it is the CMC6 and the Activate 4. If I have 10 mana at my disposal, I should already have enough Experience and have pulled a combo. CMC10 is just too slow and too steep a cost for me.

Do you have a base deck build started yet? Didn't see it on your profile. Are you planning on running Mizzix of the Izmagnus as your commander or Arjun, the Shifting Flame?

Izzet has a tough time pulling creatures, ie: Arjun, the Shifting Flame.

Some recommendations might be:

Blue Sun's Zenith, Brain Freeze, Stroke of Genius, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jushi Apprentice, Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac, Show and Tell + Omniscience, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Ambassador Laquatus, Grindclock, Millstone, Mind's Eye, Beacon of Tomorrows, Windfall, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace, Memory Adept, Memory Erosion, Dreamborn Muse, Jace's Archivist, Altar of Dementia + Glen Elendra Archmage + Sage of Fables, Altar of the Brood, Keening Stone, Mesmeric Orb, Mindcrank, Increasing Confusion, Tunnel Vision + Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Using his +2).

Would have to put together a preliminary build. Would need 1) Some way to survive since you'll pull threat from at least one player 2) Some way to go fast, cheap mana rocks etc to push into the big creatures.

Sorry if I duplicated any there, a couple good combos in there.

I should warn you though, in 4 player commander, it may be tough to mill all 3 opponents, you could do it, but may not be consistent. I think has better mill/control because of the .

MRDOOM3 on Nekusar, The Punisher

Chains of Mephistopheles is a not-so-budget card I run in my Nekusar deck.

I also would throw in more wheel effects like Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, Jace's Archivist, Dark Deal, Runehorn Hellkite, Reforge the Soul, Whirlpool Warrior, Chandra Ablaze, Wheel and Deal, Incendiary Command, etc.

Time Spiral and Timetwister are also nice, if you wish to invest more in this deck.

For more damage, you can also try out Gaze of Adamaro, Sudden Impact, and Runeflare Trap

Alongside Spiteful Visions, there's also Phyrexian Tyranny, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Price of Knowledge, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Viseling (in multiplayer, Black Vise for two-way), Iron Maiden, and Fevered Visions.

Some more forced draw you can put in include, but is not limited to: Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Forced Fruition (especially fun in Nekusar EDH), Kami of the Crescent Moon, Master of the Feast, Nin, the Pain Artist, Jace Beleren, Dack Fayden, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Well of Ideas, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc.

Well, I hope that this wall of text I just typed helped to some extent, and good luck with the deck.

Daedalus19876 on God sent Anya and her army to destroy

1 week ago

sigh I wrote you a long, detailed comment, then my computer decided to delete it. Long story short, here was my suggestion:

Make sure all of your equipment and creatures will have an impact. I'd look to the equipment I'm using on my deck for some suggestions, but the most important ones you're missing are O-Naginata, Champion's Helm, and Inquisitor's Flail. Also, of the Swords of X and Y, I'd play exactly the opposite ones from the ones you have, lol.

More tutors are vital in Boros colors. Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Relic Seeker, Enlightened Tutor, Stonehewer Giant, etc would be my first choices.

Double strike and extra combat steps are helpful. Duelist's Heritage, Silverblade Paladin, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine).

Better removal and draw. Swords to Plowshares, Chaos Warp, Oblation, Reforge the Soul, Scroll Tax.

Protection is vital. Mother of Runes is the best, but more hexproof is always good.

Hope this helps! :)

Daedalus19876 on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

DarkEclipse18: No need to apologize! :)

The deck should run fine without Arid Mesa and Plateau, I'd just put two Plains in instead (or whatever utility lands you find helpful).

There is no budget replacement for Mana Crypt (there's simply no other mana rock that comes down as fast), but Inspiring Statuary can give you as much or more ramp in the late game. Chrome Mox could also do work but personally I don't like it much.

The two swords really are important here...I'd say that Sword of Feast and Famine is a must, but you could replace Sword of Fire and Ice with either Rogue's Gloves or Mask of Memory to replicate the draw. Nothing else can give the handy protection as easily, though.

Scroll Rack and Land Tax are both relatively unique cards - you could include Tithe over Land Tax and maybe Reforge the Soul over Scroll Rack?

If you include Tithe, you'll want to include Mistveil Plains to abuse Tithe with Sunforger ;)

I hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions you may have, and let me know how the deck plays for you! :)

GS10 on Akiri/Kydele, The Chosen Kruphix Line-Slinger

1 week ago

Probably needs to be more streamlined, in my experience Partner Commanders tend to not be very fast unless they are enabling some sort of fast combo, and you don't seem to have a lot of pieces needed to combo off fast.

Paradox Engine is insane with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, and it combos perfectly with Isochron Scepter (and a respectable package of instants), easy inclusions that also strenghten Akiri, Line-Slinger incidentally.

I'd run a lot more wheel effects, and there are some not too expensive in the likes of Windfall, Winds of Change, Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, also ways to make use of the cards you pitch, like Past in Flames or even Snapcaster Mage, Torrential Gearhulk, Jace, Telepath Unbound and such.

Even if you go infinite on mana, which you can with the cards you already run, I don't see exactly how you'd turn that into a win right away, so you might actually go infinite without being able to win the game on the spot. Also, you can make infinite colorless mana, but not convert it to any color, so even if you draw into your whole deck with Staff of Domination, you wouldn't be able to cast more than a few cards, Gemstone Array is a good addition that helps with that as well, and if you want to win by drawing your whole deck, maybe Laboratory Maniac as well, even though I'd prefer some kind of Fireball which is my weapon of choice.

Check out my deck for any additional insight if you want to. Kydele and Akiri are not the most competitive pair, but they are very underrated nontheless. Really fun duo to play, I just think you need to fine tune your list a bit more to be able to make the most of it consistently ;)

Hi!

As for cuts, I agree with all the above, and I would cut - Titania's Song, Relic of Progenitus

I don't mind a summon when it's from a respected and devoted player at all ;)

So a more aggresive approach:

These would be my first few ideas that spring to mind.
