ShreddedByCrows on Mathas EDH - A Real Pain in the Neck (Get it?)

1 week ago

SenseiRamen Mathas, Fiend Seeker has the ability to be a fabulous political commander, I love your idea there and would definitely give it a try!

Your curve is generally correct, but I feel there are a few things you can change to optimize your deck (and I'll avoid expensive suggestions, in order to keep it affordable, suiting your budget). First of all, you could consider running two more lands (Mathas surely is a cheap commander but it better suits a more controlish game plan. I would prefer to run 36 lands in this purpose. I recommend you to give a look at the Rocky Tar Pit (it's basically a budget fetchland) and Myriad Landscape. The new Field of Ruin might interest you as it's a great political tool. Forbidden Orchard also is nice and affordable. Smoldering Marshand Canyon Slough are not that expensive and can help you stabilize your mana pool. And, only if it fits your budget issues, both Blood Crypt and Godless Shrine are good investments.

The Planar Bridge, even if it's a great card on its own, doesn't really match with your objectives. It's slow and will take too much time to be effective. If the ''tutor'' effect was what you were searching when you put this one into your deck, I suggest you some cards as Increasing Ambition or (a slow but more versatile card) Ring of Three Wishes.

An idea I find interesting with Mathas will concern the addition of a sacrifice outlet. With cards like a Skullclamp and a Bloodghast (I know, it's not a budget card actually, but you can find it for something like 10 euros now that it has been reprinted - if you're looking for a budget version, you can run the Reassembling Skeleton / Endless Cockroaches), it provides you an excellent card advantage, with cards like Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar it gives you the necessary resources for the late game. Not to say that the red colour also gives you access to tons of cards which allows you to take the control of your opponents' creatures for one turn (Captivating Crew for example)! Alongside the altars, those cards could enable you to kill the creatures you put a bounty counter onto and so you will gain the reward and gets nice value while slowing your opponents. It may require some testing time but it seems pretty decent.In control options, you have Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos and Attrition that could get the job done.

Tetzimoc, Primal Death seems really good here, and I'm glad someone finally decided to give it a try! With a Cloudstone Curio, you can bounce it back to your hand and restart clearing the board as much as you want, but you will have to think about adding other valuable etb effects and recursion's cards like Phyrexian Reclamation.

For more ''prison'' effects, there is the Windborn Muse and the brand new Baird, Steward of Argive.

Sheoldred, Whispering One is not a cheap card, but feels like a staple for your strategy and your deckbuilding.

You may give a try to Revel in Riches, but it's a greedy card. It has proved to be better than Black Market for me. In a tricolourous deck like yours, I will definetly play it.

You need more control tools. Hero's Downfall, Phyrexian Purge, Dreadbore, Orzhov Charm, etc. are great ones.

There is a lot of cards in your actual deck build that don't feel like a good idea since they just don't match with any strategy. Let's start with the Hoarding Dragon. It's a slow tutor and I can understand why you choose to play it, but it doesn't feel like a good idea. Jaya Ballard, Task Mage : the hate cards are bad because they often feel too situational and becomes dead cards. Even if Jaya provides you other options than the hate the blue guy one, she stays bad in comparison with other cards you could play (not saying that about expensive cards - even for a budget deck, she's just bad - cut it). Kulrath Knight doesn't do much in your deck... I mean... it's not such a bad card but come on, you want to pay 5 mana on something else than just a flying lil' body with wither. Kozilek, the Great Distortion is a great card, but it feels too slow here as you don't play anything to ramp, and, more important for your deck, it doesn't match with anything. If you absolutely want some eldrazi there, so add in some ramp cards and play Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, it will be much more efficient and synergize better with what you want to accomplish. Only 10 enchantments is not enough to get value from your Mesa Enchantress. Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is slow and doesn't do much. Shunt feels too situational. Righteous War is far from being interesting here, you will always prefer having Swiftfoot Boots over them... and I don't even know if you need those boots... no, I'm pretty sure you're fine without. Celestial Dawn doesn't do much and you will most of the time pay 3 to do nothing...which is bad.

A few suggestions :

  • Endless Whispers could be funny and fits very well the political theme!

  • Afterlife is a control tool which also left your opponent with a creature, it's nice not to make enemies.

  • Descent of the Dragons another control tool leaving your opponents with creatures. If your prison theme is strong enough, this card could be a staple as it puts 4-4 flying. Your opponents will slowly kill each other.

  • Disrupt Decorum mad flavorful card for a mad Mathas dude.

  • Besmirch not the best card ever, but could be interesting there.

  • Mogg Infestation lul

  • Chaos Warp doesn't kill your target, but it's still a really good and versatile answer.

  • Sarkhan the Mad look at the -2! (you will need a lot more protections if you go for it though, and chose to go for a lower curve (which is not such a bad idea btw))

  • Painful Quandary just a powerful and annoying control card - beware, it often attracts a lot of hate.

  • Solemn Simulacrum helps you to stabilize your mana base and gives you card draw.

I hope it would help you! Good luck with the deckbuilding and keep up the good work. :)

I understand why you would think those cards would be good, but I haven't found any of them to be in practice. Let's go down the list:

  • Animist's Awakening: The big problem with this card is that it's a sorcery. To be more specific to my point, it's not a creature. In a deck consisting of land search effects and creature tutors, this is a big problem, as the cards that can find it (Planar Portal and Ring of Three Wishes) would much rather find Genesis Wave instead. I used to have Collective Voyage in this deck filling a similar role, but cut it for all these reasons and I'm not convinced Animist's Awakening is significantly better.
  • Summer Bloom: As an Amulet Titan player, I have a soft spot for this card, but for the same reasons as Animist's Awakening, it just doesn't belong in the deck. Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Wayward Swordtooth, and Oracle of Mul Daya are creatures (see above), so they get to keep their slot, and Journey of Discovery is versatile enough to keep its slot, and Summer Bloom is just left in this weird in-between where it can't compare to any of these cards despite it's similar effect.
  • Lifecrafter's Bestiary: I could maybe get behind this one if more than fifteen percent of this deck was creatures. As it stands, it barely does anything (Rowen would be better and I'm not yet sure if I want that) and the times that it does do something, that something is middling.

To round it all off, your suggestions would take the maindeck to 102 cards, which of course is more than the Commander/EDH-required 99 plus a Commander/General. Do you have any suggestions for cuts, or are you just sounding off cards that you think might be okay?

Best,

Hey skinken, thanks for taking the time to give some good feedback. Tutors are for sure the way to class up the deck, and I used to have a few more than I do now. I've done a bit of tuning since then to keep them to a minimum and really just add room for fun stuff. The tutors I've got are Wild Research, Ring of Three Wishes, and Expedition Map turns into Inventors' Fair. I'll be sure to add Gamble though probably in place of the Ring of Three Wishes because I think that's hilarious and even kinda sums up the deck.

I do agree that it's not always the best idea to have things in your deck that totally cancel other things. The Akroan Horse is pretty mediocre in general and might even be due for a cut, but the Desolation Giant is more of a circumstantial piece. Like if i throw him under a Summoner's Egg, or enchant him with a False Demise and give that away. Torpor Orb is an awesome card and certainly makes a lot of the deck function but I prefer my Hushwing Gryff to him instead since I can control when I want to block with it to get it off the board and do big stuff. Bruna, the Fading Light is actually a cast trigger instead of an ETB but if it wasn't I would totally agree that it's stupid, so thanks for having my back. I avtually Added her and gisela in because I recently broke down a deck that had them in it and I have a fair enough amount of card draw to hopefully make Brisela, Voice of Nightmares happen on occasion

The farie artisians thing is sick though, I'll add a list of dumb funny things that I've been able to pull off like that. I think you'll get a kick out of it.

While not particularly fast, Ring of Three Wishes and Planar Portal should each help you find Primal Surge, and are not that expensive, so you might want to consider them if you truly want to make this a Primal Surge deck. I actually also use Primal Surge in one of my Yisan deck, but I don't really build around it besides leaving out all other permanent cards. Being able to put an arbitrary amount of your library onto the battlefield is quite fun.

Is Ring of Three Wishes really necessary? I feel like Enlightened Tutor would be much better.

Why not play with Planar Portal instead of Ring of Three Wishes so that you can search for it with your Treasure Mage?

And I really like your approach of including many kinds of tokens into that deck. How much is Mind Unbound doing for you? It sounds very cool, but it's six mana, so I don't run it in my build. If you like the Djinn, I'd recommend Ring of Three Wishes. But that's also kinda expensive (especially in activation cost). Archmage Ascension is a nice card as well that has to be handled or will win you the game.
