Madcookie on Jhoira gonna get your ass beat, mang!

1 day ago

Wolfrage76 Well in that case you are left with pretty much one option - to make a huge turn. You can do this by replacing the cards I told you with some form of stalling - say bouncing back, Cyclonic Rift, Boomerang that kind of thing or with good old board wipes. You do run some similar spells as well. This is to be done if they target you and you feel very pressured. As for the huge turn it should go like this - step 1 have jhoira on the field. Step 2 at the same time in any given turn (preferably the guy right before you) you suspend the following cards 1-3 big guys (the dream would be Hellkite Charger+Neheb, the Eternal which means infinite attack phases) and a random board wipe. I'd strongly recommend my personal favourite Obliterate for the flavor and usefullness, but you can go with anything you like Blasphemous Act, Star of Extinction, Evacuation etc. Then all you need to do is survive for 4 turns(2 with Paradox Haze until they come online. For this reason you are playing the bounces and counterspells. Then when the suspended cards begin to resolve you stack the board wipe to act first, clear the board, hopefully the lands too with obliterate, then smash in the big guys, attack fact with haste and simply win from there.

As for other replacements, you should try to add card draw to the deck, as its really limited as of now. However good blue draw can be expensive sometimes like Rhystic Study and the red I can think of is counterproductive in your deck Outpost Siege and Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip :S. Look in https://magiccards.info/search.html I always check there first for certain types of mechanics and such when building a deck.

So all in all if you can get the cards I mentioned it should make the deck much better. Hope this was helpful :)

I have an Expropriate, Rhystic Study (commanders arsenal FOIL and regular) and Mystic Remora. I dont know what the bridge is worth, the hover image shows no price, but i think its more than the value of those cards. Also, I live in sweden so assuming you are in US it would be shipping over seas if you would be interested..

First post so bear with me. I have an Ensnaring Bridge from stronghold that I don't use for my deck, its in quite good condition, and I am looking for cards to add to my ur-dragon deck or my talrand deck. I also have some cards lying around not in use like Ramos, Dragon Engine Birds of Paradise and a foil prerelease Settle the Wreckage that I did open, but all three are in good condition. The following cards are some of the things I am looking for. Scourge of the Throne Patriarch's Bidding Expropriate Gauntlet of Power High Tide Pact of Negation Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Ancient Tomb some combination of these (as well as others) that adds up to roughly the price of the card is what im interested in. I can trade it to my local store for around 30 dollars so I am looking to get closer to the 40 value if possible. other cards may work, just list your request. I am new to the site so I am unsure of what to check outside of my inbox or the comment thread. Thanks!!

Now that I finally have a chance to look at this... :)

Your removal package seems pretty good. I'd still always try to include a Beast Within, and I think Condemn is the weakest link in this deck's removal (since often you want to remove something that's not attacking).

Since all of your birds will have flying, Gravitational Shift and Favorable Winds seem very good.

Your color-fixing looks pretty good overall. Rupture Spire is a second copy of Transguild Promenade, and I'd generally use Reflecting Pool over Meteor Crater (since the latter requires you to already have cast the spell in question to be able to get use out of the land). Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic also help a LOT.

I've built budget landbases like this before, if you want to take a look at this deck's manabase: *RETIRED* An Hour of Wolves: Tazri EDH

Speaking of budgets, I'd cut Cavern of Souls most likely. It's not SUPER relevant in the deck, and it's nearly $50 :(

I saw Karakas in your maybeboard, but I'm afraid to tell you that it's banned in EDH :(

If this turns out to be fully tribal, you could run Cover of Darkness to great effect.

The one big thing you're missing here is draw effects. If the deck turns out to be creature-heavy, you could try cards like Shamanic Revelation or Kindred Discovery or Distant Melody. Otherwise, effects like Abundance, Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study, etc can help a lot :)

Hope that's useful commentary! :) I'll take another look when you've messed with the deck a bit more.

bushido_man96 on Ertai, the Corrupted Reanimator

Ok, first set of substitutions with the cards I had on hand:

Out: Transguild Promenade, Pulse of the Grid, Well of Ideas, Waterfront Bouncer, Probe, Gravedigger, Fallen Angel, Cephalid Broker, Pestilence Demon, Dromar, the Banisher.

In: Dromar's Cavern, Arguel's Blood Fast, Rhystic Study, Propaganda, Archfiend of Depravity, Kismet, Palace Siege, Treachery, Soothsaying, Sol Ring.

More changes to come. I plan to get the rest of the Maybeboard in here over the course of my next few orders. I probably should find some Signets to run in it, too.

Rhystic Study is a god tier card draw spell, it basically says "draw a card every time your opponents cast a spell"

Hybrow on WE'RE GONNA BUILD A WALL (Oloro Wall Tribal)

3 days ago

I love tribal, that's pretty much all I will play. I know its tough to stray from the theme, but I would add a Rhystic Study as card draw will probably be an issue. Or if life is really no problem, Necropotence.

As well, Patriarch's Bidding. You run the risk of someone playing Dragon tribal bringing back all of theirs too, but it would be nice after a board wipe.

Replace Murder with Unmake.. Same mana cost, but exile instead of destroy. My group tends to play a lot of indestructible, so just find it better.

And if you want to stay on Theme, you could also consider Changelings like Cairn Wanderer or Changeling Hero, as they would count as walls without Defender. Or the artifact anthem creatures like Brass Herald, Adaptive Automaton, or even Metallic Mimic if you are made of money :)

Love the idea of a wall deck, good luck with it.

RazortoothMtg on Sneks

Ya Suns_Champion, rites is one of my top priorities to get in the deck. Lotus Cobra is probably one of the best snakes out there, so that's a pretty good one too. Would you say that Beastmaster Ascension is better/worse/same as the 4 overrun effects in the deck right now? I'm thinking it's probably better than Pathbreaker Ibex since I don't have to wait a turn cycle, but worse than the rest due to no trample. Thanks for the insight!

And bushido_man96, while I do agree Biomantic Mastery may be a bit high CMC, I'm not a huge fan of Howling Mine effects giving my opponents cards unless I have a bajillion counterspells or some other way to make sure the extra cards don't win my opponent the game. I'll probably replace mastery with Rhystic Study. That card drew an opponent like 60 cards at FNM this week... But I totally forgot about it. Thanks for bringing it up!
