Megalomania on Ramp into Infinite [Damia's Vault of Madness]

1 week ago

The deck looks decent but it still has too many unnecessary pieces specifically the ones in your “Mirror” category.

If you’re aiming for a competetive deck, the first thing you might want to focus on is the mana base. You need fetches and duals that do not come into play tapped since you want to spend the first 2-3 turns casting ramp spells.

Also, you don’t T&N straight for infinite mana combos as this would require you to have a wincon in hand. You usually go for Palinchron and Rune-Scarred Demon which you then use to tutor for Phantasmal Image. This allows you to get infinite mana then tutor (using Phantasmal Image) Deadeye Navigator. You now get to repeatedly tutor for any other cards you might want or directly for your win con.

I think a crucial card you are missing here is Blue Sun's Zenith which, after the setup above, can be used to draw out all your opponents’ decks. This eliminates the need for other win cons. Just add Riftsweeper in case one of the cards needed gets exiled.

Alternatively, you can replace Damia with Tasigur, the Golden Fang as he wins you games instantly with infinite mana.

Sorry for the long post. I used to have a Damia deck myself and sort of missed it. Lol.

BMHKain on Varolz Voltron Help Needed.

2 weeks ago



I'm just going to put it straight for what I want for help:

  1. A cut to 100 (Obviously.)

  2. More stuff to use to fill the yard, & stuff to protect it from threats like Grafdigger's Cage & Ashes of the Abhorrent.

  3. Riftsweeper is in, so I'd like to have stuff to reuse from scavenging from Varolz, the Scar-Striped, & keep it up when needed. It's more than just Worldly Tutor You know...

  4. More rocks & less lands (Possibly...)

  5. If lands are to be yarded, I'd like some options to bring them back to play. A merfolk from Rivals of Ixalan can do this, & it shouldn't be just Crucible of Worlds, or Life from the Loam, you know...

6/finally: stuff to retrieve other things is opposed to mere permanents...

Good luck helping me out! It's rare to find Varolz with a Voltron/GoLion theme, you know... :)

Megalomania on thrasios/tymna competitive

3 weeks ago

I see a lot of guys who mix Flash Hulk with the Isochron, Dramatic Reversal combo. I’m sure it works but in my experience, the latter works best if centered around Paradox Engine. The gameplay just feels more organic as compared to Flash Hulk which, imho, is better except it feels almost too deliberate/mechanical.

I would suggest either focusing on Flash Hulk and possibly adding a Hermit Druid combo as I did, or going the Paradox Engine route which would mean more rocks and dorks.

I don’t see the need to keep cards like Exsanguinate since you already have Labman and Walking Ballista in the deck. These two will suffice or perhaps add something like Aetherflux Reservoir or just Riftsweeper as a backup if one of your wincons get exiled.

I have a couple of thrasios-tymna lists you might want to check out.

Megalomania on World Breaker Hulk

Thankfully that hasn't happened yet. But in such cases, we can still use the Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace combo to draw out the entire deck, play Laboratory Maniac and a draw spell like Gitaxian Probe to win the came.

If the removal happens after we dump everything into the graveyard but prior to infinite mana, we lose unless we have Riftsweeper in hand and enough mana to play it, draw Muldothra and cast it on the same turn . Luckily, the deck is loaded with countermagic that costs 1 cmc or less. We always want to have at least 1 or two of those in hand just in case something unexpected happens.

Surreality on Breakfast Hulk

I was just rethinking the budget subs I use in my version of this list and had been using Krosan Reclamation as a budget sub for Timetwister. At the same time, I had been trying to fit in a card to enable me to return a card such as Hermit Druid from exile if he were to be say hit by a Swords to Plowshares. I then realized that I had 2 options to bring a card back from exile: Pull from Eternity or Riftsweeper. I preferred the latter as it allowed me to return the card directly to my library rather than needing another recursion spell to bring it from my graveyard to my library (as Pull From Eternity would require).

However, removing Krosan Reclamation removes the ability to begin Memory's Journey loops after binning our entire deck and gaining infinite mana with Muldrotha and LED loops. That's when I realized though that we could still accomplish this with Riftsweeper. We could use Flash of Insight, flashbacked with X = 1 exiling Memory's Journey. Our library is empty so we would see no cards. We could then use Muldrotha's ability to cast a creature from our graveyard to cast Riftsweeper which would shuffle our exiled Memory's Journey into our empty deck. We could draw this with Thrasios and then begin our loops.

To answer your question Landonj5566, Sigi has repeatedly suggested using Krosan Reclamation as a substitution for Timetwister to enable these loops in the past so that would probably be your best bet.

At the same time, I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to how it is better than Riftsweeper which just seems to have more utility to me while still enabling the same loops.

(I probably missed something and will look like an idiot but oh well haha.)

Thanks guys!

There are some pretty major philosophical differences in design and purpose, but if you'd like to take a look at my version, head over to Grow strong. Embrace power. Seek vengeance.

It looks like your main engine is Cauldron of Souls + Dross Scorpion + Melira, Sylvok Outcast . A Riftsweeper wouldn't be amiss for disaster proofing and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed will probably net you more value than Panharmonicon

Bloodghast and Stone-Seeder Hierophant add a lot of value to Perilous Forays and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen turns those into a win con against at least one player.

You might also need some more raw card draw and graveyard hate.

The seems good. You might want Spore Frog, it can prevent a lot of damage. You could also play the Seals (Seal of Primordium, Seal of Doom and Seal of Removal). I play Bitter Ordeal, Disciple of Bolas, Mindslicer and Grim Haruspex in my Karador, Ghost Chieftain deck. Also Riftsweeper is really good since it can get cards your opponents exiled back into your deck. Anyway these are just my random suggestions hope they help. :)

BolasFucks on Tasigur Seasons Past / Season Pastigur

Ifeno I actually asked the same question a while back and the answer is basically either Riftsweeper to get Scepter back or Tidespout Tyrant as a backup engine to go infinite with your rocks. Tyrant however is clunkier than Dramatic Scepter and unfortunately can't be hit by an Eldritch Evolution off Tas.
