Rhystic Tutor Discussion

Phostration on Zombie

1 month ago

Call to the Grave to cause opponents to remove creatures continually (plus it gets rid of hexproof and indestructible creatures). Open the Graves would let you gain zombies if any of your own(non token) zombies happen to die. You could also add some normal removal such as Hero's Downfall. Liliana, Dreadhorde General could provide creature gen as well as card draw. Instead of having 4 Rooftop Storm, you could go down to 1 or 2 and add some tutor spells, since if you draw more than one it becomes a redundant card. Rhystic Tutor is cheaper, but Diabolic Intent and Beseech the Queen are slightly better but cost more. God-Eternal Bontu is nice to have especially if you have tokens to sacrifice for card draw.

Sorry I only suggested black cards!

Nice, one thing I might suggest is some more tutors to tutor up some of the combo pieces. The ones not in here already in black are: Booster Tutor to open a pack of Core Set 2019 for Reassembling Skeleton or a pack of Invasion or Fifth Edition for Initiates of the Ebon Hand or Bog Initiate, or Amonkhet for Embalmer's Tools, or the respective pack for any of the combo pieces, if you want to play casual and your playgroup allows silver-bordered cards. Also: Cruel Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Grim Tutor, or Rhystic Tutor. Also some possibilities for some card draw to get pieces of the combo are: Aladdin's Lamp, Book of Rass, and Conch Horn. This link has some more card draw. Ignore the multicolored cards as I forgot to exclude colors on the gatherer.

To Remove:

Extricator of Sin  Flip - easily one of the least impactful cards you have and you have 9 to cut.

Abstruse Interference - a 3 mana Force Spike/Mana Tithe seems bad, even if the upside of getting a creature token is there.

Otherworldly Outburst - Like Extricator, a 3/2 is unlikely to make a very big difference.

Isochron Scepter - with 109 cards in deck right now, there are only 4 cards that could even meet the criteria to use this. Fall of the Titans won't work because this won't let you pay alternative costs.

Planar Gate - quite expensive, and while awesome, you would get more mileage out of something like Ugin, the Ineffable, since your Devoid spells are technically colorless. It would benefit your artifacts as well as your Eldrazi. His activated abilities are nothing to sneeze at either.

Rhystic Tutor - someone is going to pay the 2... if you could pick the opponent, different story. As is, it's unlikely to ever resolve. you would be better off with something like Vampiric Tutor if you were going for another tutor effect, but that one is rather pricey as well.

Shard Convergence - Have this be something like Cultivate or Kodama's Reach to make sure that you can cast your spells sooner.

From Beyond - very slow for what it does, not sure it's worth it in the long run.

Endless One - a big mana sink with no keywords or activated abilities is underwhelming.

Desolation Twin - the 10/10 token is only on cast, so if there are any effects that would reanimate it, put it into play, etc that happen to go off, it's just a vanilla 10/10. For 10cmc, you would be better off running either version of Kozilek or Ulamog.

Emrakul's Evangel - I didn't realize that the condition to get the 3/2's required "non-eldrazi" to be sacrificed. It's a non-bo with the deck.

Cards to consider:

Void Attendant - Mana sink to potentially get more scion tokens.

World Breaker - a recurrable threat that exiles permanents.

Essence Depleter - Mana sink to lifegain/drain someone.

Grip of Desolation - 2 for 1 removal spell.

Ruination Guide - Colorless, front-end creature pump.

Sire of Stagnation - Jerk card for jerks. Slows opponents down or exiles their fuel. slows them down either way to give you more time to amass your army.

Spell Shrivel - This is a counterspell that's better than the one you have in the list currently (Abstruse Interference).

Call the Scions - Similar to Awakening Zone and From Beyond it gives you 2x 1/1's for 3cmc all at once.

Cards to Add:

Herald of Kozilek - cost reduction for your deck.

Swarm Surge - Colorless creature pump and First Strike.

Smothering Abomination - Card draw for sac'ing a token on upkeep.

Brood Butcher - turns your tokens into removal for BG to -2/-2 something.

Deepfathom Skulker - lets you draw for each attacking creature you control that connects with a player.

Nice brew! I contemplated building this when this was spoiled. I have some suggestions. Not sure if you have a budget but I'll try not to list anything expensive. BTW, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact you are running Rhystic Tutor! Definitely not a highly used card, but could be just as good as the expenisve tutors if you run a high-level political game.

As for tutors, I like the using some of the fringe stuff like Scheming Symmetry and Tunnel Vision. Now the latter doesn't appear to be a tutor and typically most want to use it for milling but you can totally use it on yourself to mill down to the card you are looking for. It's sometimes double the advantage if you are using graveyard shenanigans and want more cards in your graveyard anyway. This isn't necessarily a graveyard deck but it can probably still be proven as a useful tutor.

Windfall, Flash of Insight, Prosperity or even Teferi's Puzzle Box might be useful to you to wheel and deal through the deck in the event you do not have nay tutors in hand. Not something you have to include but another angle of how to get your commander in your hand. Tutoring is probably most effective and efficient.

Maybe a Sculpting Steel to copy Strionic Resonator? Could be sweet having two of those on the field and triggering both. Fabricate is a great artifact tutor.

My only other advice is maybe take out some of the creatures for anything new you put in since this deck solely cares about your commander's wincon.

Hope this helps! Good Luck! +1

Demarge I see now what you were going for and yes im tutor heavy and I may add more tutors such as Cruel Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Grim Tutor and maybe Rhystic Tutor , but i'm not sure yet. And while you didn't mean Spellbook exactly it still a 0 drop that gives unlimited hand size granted it doesn't give mana like Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel does and as such there would be my first choose Reliquary over vessel due to lands being slightly harder to get rid of. But I'm not sure on Doomsday as its powerful but it leaves only 5 turns before I lose the game due to my library being exiled, Unless i misunderstood the ruling on D-Day.

sonnet666 on List of EDH Tutor Cards

Up to date: 4/11/2019

Added a few new categories and a breakdown of how the list is structured in the description.

Keep commenting if there are any cards you think have been missed. (Although, please don't suggest Planeswalkers that search as their ULt. The odds of getting a PW ult off in EDH are slim at best.)

TheCardPool, Technically Rhystic Tutor is a tutor too, but neither of them belong here :)
