Reliquary Tower Discussion

ticked-off-squirrel on Thopter Arest

you should make an eldarazi the commander. it is allot more effective than the lame thopter. both are colorless so it is allowed. you should also add Reliquary Tower and you should also add in Black Vise and The Rack to control the opponent's hand. I also think Aladdin's Lamp would be helpful in this deck so you can search for the right card. and Whispersilk Cloak will keep the creature holding it safe from harm. Trading Post might or might not be helpful (btw it is legal even though it can spit out White Goat tokens) Foundry Inspector will help you get your artifacts out easier and Caged Sun will benefit all things colorless if chosen. and finally good ol' Colossus of Akros will win hands down when holding Whispersilk Cloak

  • Elemental Bond (Trying this as Rishkar's Expertise. The higher CMC might be too much, and this may come back in.)

  • Predator Ooze (Needed a card to cut, and this one mostly is there for devotion only.)

  • Kalonian Twingrove (A solid big beater, but really nothing more than that. You can find better utility.)

  • Managorger Hydra (Another big beater, but does very little late-game and early game is a ripe target for removal, or just doesn't get big enough.)

cool deck! saw it on the commander thread, here are some quick suggestions.
some of these might just be good stuff suggestions.
Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are good;
Whip of Erebos is great.
if you want a token generator, Myr Turbine is good but im not sure if it is what you want.
you're running Necropotence so you could consider Reliquary Tower and Zombie Infestation to make tokens.
Overseer of the Damned is good. also Phyrexian Reclamation is one of my favorite black cards, really good recursion.
other than those short ideas, really nice deck. you could maybe run a little more ramp like Burnished Hart or Myriad Landscape.
hope this helps have fun!!

Sacred Mesa doesnt do enough and you have to keep investing mana just to keep it around.

Khalni Gem you can find a better rock i think. plus this doesnt ramp you. it leaves you at parity. id only play this if you were playing a landfall deck. besides 4 is a little late to be ramping.

Spiny Starfish? i love the flavor but not sure what its doing here.

Thassa, God of the Sea shes awsome but one scry a turn isnt really worth the slot and you dont have the devotion to make her a creature. plus you dont have anything worth making unblockable.

Mana Breach can be kind of a nonbo with the rest of the deck. if you are staxing their lands down, this lets them always have one to replay untapped.

Lim-Dul's Vault is meh. it lets you stack your deck but at the cost of life and you dont actually draw the card.

Words of Waste you dont really have enough draw to make this worth it.

Ivory Tower same as above.

Venser's Journal i dont know if this is good enough. its 5 mana and by the time you can cast it you are going to need to be casting wraths, maintaining stax or trying to combo off. plus the life gain doesnt happen immediately. and again, ou dont have enough draw

Felidar Sovereign too easy to destroy. you have no ways of flashing it in.

Sunder will bounce all your opponents lands

Frozen AEther dont let stuff be untapped ever

Reliquary Tower

you need more draw. the draw you have is explosive but you need to find it.

Just found your decklist and brotha, I gotta say, this is the flavor deck I've been trying to build with my own Saskia!

I am motivated to help you.



Let me help you add more rebellion in your deck. And draw power later.

Seems like you need cards like Tectonic Instability strategy for aggro is to tap out and swing anyway, so this wont hurt you; tap all lands for mana in response to the trigger, War's Toll, Defense Grid (super good against control decks), AND MAKE THEM SUFFER WITH Curse of Marit Lage AND Price of Glory.


You need these in your deck to draw lots of cards:

Hope this helps! Keep raging against the tyranny of Blue Control, comrade!

I like the Aetherflux Win condition here.

You could use Inventors' Fair from you side board instead ofReliquary Tower.

Eldrazi Displacer or additional Cloudblazer could be replacements for Venser.

I would replace the Servo Exhibition by something with an ETB trigger.

  • Cogworker's Puzzleknot would be an other two drop, stronger with panharmonicon, weaker without, but also brings you a creature after Fulmigate and supports the Inventors' Fair.

  • Thraben Inspector brings card advantage for

Angel of Renewal maybe supports the Aetherflux theme better than Wispweaver Angel

Also you could think about Authority of the Consulate, slow's down your opponent and brings you life (increasing with panharmonicon)

I love the fact that your deck can fly under the radar. But yeah, once folks figure out that Sexxy Shellz Fan Grrrl is actually BA, it may be in for a rough ride. Still, the deck's considerable Draw power and Counterspells will go a long way towards holding folks off. So, how to best survive the early game ... Maybe some pillow-fort cards (i.e., stuff like Propaganda), to help reinforce the idea that your opponents should attack each other instead of you? Or maybe Bounce cards, so their Creatures get bounced any time they attack you?

I think I'd do these for sure:

  • Reducing Commander tax, once people find out how dangerous Jori is: Riptide Laboratory, Command Beacon
  • Cryptic Command (just because it does EVERYTHING ... sure, it's kinda pricey, but it's a great investment, as it'll likely go in every Blue deck you ever build)

And you might want to sprinkle these in as the pressure ramps up (I would not recommend all of them by any means ... maybe just pick-and-choose based on cards that fit on curve?):

And here's a few more that may be worth consideration:

Sorry to give you all of these with no suggestions on what to pull. It's SO hard to say, as I've never played your deck nor against your meta. But I'll take a look at potential pulls later ...

Draw well!

If you want to mention me next time you can. I'm not entirely active here but I use this as a place to catalog decks as I rotate them in and out so I'll be around.

As for stuff from your maybeboard? Dismember, Necromantic Selection and Trailblazer's Boots stand out most to me. Solid Removal, Sorta one-sided (Make Yahenni indes. then return one of your dudes) wipe and solid evasion all seem decent.

Last thing I'd look at is squaring up your mana base. Include some utility cards like Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge and Reliquary Tower to act as silver bullets against stuff like Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and the like.
