Rhystic Study Discussion

ChupaNahBrah on Inalla's School of Wizardry

  • I would put in a couple more wizards to take advantage of Inalla's ability (24 creatures seems a little low in this deck)
  • swap out remand for a hard counter
  • replace curiosity with either something that will continually draw you cards regardless like Phyrexian Arena or Rhystic Study
  • replace manalith and darksteel ingot with two signets of your choice
  • add Herald's Horn
  • go here for a list of all wizards you can play: https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&page=2&q=legal%3Acommander+t%3Acreature+t%3Awizard+id%3C%3Dgrixis&unique=cards

Bigant1 on Oona: Badass Faeries and Cruel Control

Dimir House Guard and Fleshwrither are creatures that can both tutor for cards you need or be sacrificed for your benefit. Pitiless Plunderer is a nice creature that benefits from your creatures dying. Krav, the Unredeemed is another card that helps you sacrifice faeries from Bitterblossom . Rhystic Study is also a good card draw engine.

You have Breeding Pool listed 2 separate times [with different art for each]

Mystic Remora is probably better than Rhystic Study for this commander as you can pretty much ignore the cumulative upkeep and keep replaying it from your graveyard.

Expedition Map will let you color correct, ramp, or get your Cradle from your deck, turn after turn. Cabal Coffers / Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Dark Depths / Thespian's Stage are land combos that will come together pretty well with Map/Mul. Wayfarer's Bauble and Burnished Hart are repeatable land fetches though only for basics. You may want to run one but with minimal basics, probably not both.

Being able to play fetches repeatedly out of your graveyard makes Titania, Protector of Argoth an army maker. Since you have both Strip Mine and Wasteland why not make a ton of 5/5's while you play LD?

Mostly a Pauper all-star, Crypt Rats might work pretty well here if you add the Coffers/Tomb land combo.

Fauna Shaman can load your graveyard with creatures to recur.

You'll probably want some sac outlets to help recur your stuff: Viscera Seer , Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar are great free activations for creatures, Zuran Orb for lands [you may want to load up on more lands that have ETB's like Halimar Depths or Mosswort Bridge to be able to get more value from them]

Snapcaster Mage 's value will probably go down once you embrace how many permanents you really want in this deck and remove instants and sorceries to make space.

hkhssweiss on Enchantress Tuvasa

Yo meatman87, for a competitive Tuvasa Enchantress deck, I would definitely do some reworks and go a bit more into the taxing route. Some cards I would add in already that comes to mind is:

I would also reconsider adding in Mystic Remora , it is a great card that slows down other competitive players or force you to gain card draw which is important. You should also consider other avenues to winning with Tuvasa as your 3rd line to winning if all else fails. You can do something akin to Enchanted Evening / Aura Thief or Cleansing Meditation . Three part combo with that as well as Calming Verse / Faith's Reward / Teferi's Protection . Enchanted Evening also goes well to make infinite tokesn with Ajani's Chosen .

Another line you can also go for in the Blind Obedience + Bloom Tender / Pemmin's Aura / Freed from the Real infinite extortion win. There are also cards that don't make sense with the current build so these would be the cards I would recommend cutting.

The cards I mentioned above either doesn't have a place in the deck your going for or isn't further accelerating your game plan. What you want to do assuming is to accumulate resources and value ahead of your opponent while preventing them to do anything. I would also say that you wouldn't actually need JTMS, Mother of Runes or Noble Hierarch as they won't trigger your draw. You also might want to consider adding in a High Market to have a kill switch for your Academy Rector . You have a couple avenues of fetching for it in the forms of Crop Rotation as well as Wargate when you add the latter in. Sylvan Scrying might also not be a bad add in as it can fetch you your Reliquary Tower / Serra's Sanctum and if you want to consider adding in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , those are all valuable targets.

Lemme know if you have any questions on the card reasoning or if somehting doesn't make sense to ya!~

NoOneOfConsequence on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I mean, look, it's not like the EDH ban list is specifically constructed with cEDH in mind--a lot of is just dedicated to banning really expensive cards that wouldn't break the format but would give no one any reason to play anything else ( Ancestral Recall ), or annoying pubstomp cards people wouldn't stop playing in casual that aren't actually that great ( Sylvan Primordial , Primeval Titan ). Cards like Yawgmoth's Will and Hermit Druid are way better in the format, obviously, but no one seems to care.

That being said, following that logic, why not ban cards like Rhystic Study and Cyclonic Rift ? Rhystic is the format's real Ancestral Recall (if Recall had the added effect of recurring itself on your upkeep unless any player paid 1), and it's not like it's ever been even remotely fun to play against in casual. It's not like the game could really function without staples--just because every white deck (in casual) plays Wrath of God doesn't mean that card is overpowered, but, come on, if you can ban Upheaval , you can ban Cyclonic Rift (it's honestly harder to win with upheaval than with cyclonic rift, and, besides, Obliterate isn't banned, is it)?

Wurmlover on Sun Quan, Lord of Wufect

Force of Will , Mana Drain , Delay , Dispel , Flusterstorm , Mental Misstep , Muddle the Mixture , Mystical Tutor , Negate , Pact of Negation , and Spell Pierce are all really good counterspell options to add. I would also recommend some more artifact mana, which others have recommended above. Also consider Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study to help rebuild after a wipe.

If they make the life totals 30, I riot. This format has enough problems without being MTGO 1v1 Commander. As for commander damage being cumulative, I'd be fine with that, honestly--it'd make keeping track of it simpler, if nothing else.

Ban Rhystic Study . Oh, and Teferi's Protection . Even Cyclonic Rift --I'm tired of putting it in all my blue decks just because it's good. Isn't that the logic behind the Sylvan Primordial ban? That's card not even good, honestly. It's just that no one played anything else.
