Rend Flesh Discussion

I definitely like that people want to make some changes, but I definitely would like to comment on your changes.

Starting with spot removal, I feel this is just my preference because there are often creatures in which I just want out of the way for my big creatures to get through. To be honest, if we're going late game, there is a creature or two that is definitely going to come up that's trouble. Example; Elves with a single large creature, or Affinity/Tron with their big green that gains life for graveyarded artifacts, or Ulamog's Crusher, which might cmoe up during a reanimation of mine or theirs. I just want to note that a long while back I replaced Eyeblight's for Rend Flesh. It's a lot better in the format.

If you were to switch out any card in the sideboard, you do need to remember that it needs to be 3 cmc or more. Anything less than that will obstruct the deck idea/efficiency. We don't want our cascade cards hitting them. So the listed cards; Duress, Feed the Clan, Ancient Grudge, Natural State, and Electrickery would not be supported by the deck. Choking sands is just mainly against Tron, but I definitely will consider Stone Rain as it's a bit easier to cast. I'd been on the fence about it for a while, but it might be time to test Stone Rain.

When going against burn we do use Pulse of Murasa. If we can hit this card, we're usually able to win in the long run. Aggressive mulliganing/cycling through the game is what wins us against burn. As for control, you are right. We do have a couple hiccoughs there.

The only discard like Duress that we would have access to would be Coercion, Dark Inquiry, and Nightsnare, if you think any of these might be useful I would consider them, and test them.

I do want to note that I have often contemplated adding in Tranquility to fight against Bogles, but in most other situations it's been useful to have Appetite at Instant speed. With this deck you usually keep mana up on the opponent's turn, and it's more efficient to use your mana on their turn, most times. Being able to remove an artifact/enchantment on their turn can be huge. Plus the life gain is some nice padding on top of that. It's also useful against burn decks who run enchantments, just as a couple nice side bonuses. I am still on the fence for Tranquility, though.

Bchong on Zur the Enchanter EDH

Take out Teferi's Protection Counterspell Meishin, the Mind Cage Imprisoned in the Moon Steel of the Godhead Go for the Throat Thassa, God of the Sea Sphere of Safety Do or Die Aegis of the Gods Arcane Adaptation Drake Haven Spell Swindle Chill to the Bone Shielded by Faith Bruna, Light of Alabaster Faith of the Devoted Vanishing Ghostly Prison The Scarab God Rend Flesh AEther Barrier Eyeblight's Ending,

put in Mystic Remora Preordain Blind Obedience Arcane Laboratory Rest in Peace Planar Void Oblivion Ring Sol Ring Mana Vault Consulate Crackdown Energy Flux Tunnel Vision (combo with open the vaults) Serum Visions Thought Scour Negate Lightning Greaves

I don't know what kind of theme or way of winning you are trying to go for. you don't really have a way to win with this deck. You need to get some kind of combo. Zur is very powerful because he can tutor an enchantment out of your deck so use that to your advantage and try to put in cards that are 3 or less so that your commander can have a greater effect. Try to go find an infinite combo or you can also build stax. You won't win consistently if you don't have an infinite combo. You might find other versions of zur on this site that are good (probably not). CEDH Reddit can probably help you out... though some of the things might be expensive. The things I suggested are just a couple relatively cheap cards that make a big impact. Try to have a theme in your deck whether it is control/combo or voltron or pillowfort.

MTGplayer00 on Faeries and Death

Wow I'm really stupid. I'm running Unmake in my EDH deck and didn't even realize it was common-level. Still though, it IS triple-B so I might only run one copy...

The current phase I'm in for decktesting is diversifying my portfolio of removal. Murder was kind of a placeholder but it worked surprisingly well so I just left it in so I could deal with other pressing issues this deck had (probably should have put that in the description lol). The issue I have with Eyeblight's Ending is minor and it's just a flavor gripe since it does have the elf subtype. Right now, thanks to your suggestions, here's the list I'm considering:

1x Unmake

3x Eyeblight's Ending or Rend Flesh (haven't decided - I'll have to look at the current meta)

3x Agony Warp

2x Ghastly Demise or Vendetta (haven't decided, maybe 1 of each)?

I might cut Dewdrop Spy for Ninja of the Deep Hours because you're right that it doesn't help me as much. I always kinda thought that Latchkey Faerie was like Ninja of the Deep Hours if it were a faerie. At the time I thought that having to return something to your hand was kind of a bad trade for the NOTDH trigger but now I realize that with all the ETB effects these faeries have it could actually be a good thing.

Thanks for the suggestion, though! I really appreciate anyone who takes some time to help me make this deck better.

I made a spirit tribal deck there's a couple stuff your missing that's a must

  1. Nikko-Onna
  2. Yuki-Onna
  3. Rend Flesh
  4. Wear Away
  5. Infernal Kirin
  6. He Who Hungers
  7. Yosei, the Morning Star
  8. Kokusho, the Evening Star
  9. Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse
  10. Haru-Onna

And of coarse your fatal mistake Kodama's Reach is missing and I'm sure the top ten best ramp cards that synerizes in the deck should be in this.

Nameless Inversion might not be a bad choice for spot removal. Not too sure what you would really swap it out for though. Rend Flesh might also be a good swap out for Go for the Throat. It costs an extra mana but the effect is similar and it costs less(since budget is of the essence).

Snap157 on Rakdos; Burn It Down

8 months ago

Alrighty then let's get you all set!

You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.

While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.

It's also important to keep in mind that the ability only impacts creatures, so super expensive things like Din of the Fireherd, Subterranean Tremors don't belong.

Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:

replace with:

With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!
