Rishadan Cutpurse Discussion

UUUUmage on Need to get Muldrotha more ...

I've wanted to try a stax deck. But there's a muldrotha in my pond so I've put it in the backburner. Maybe the idea will resonate with you!

I wanted to use Pendrell Mists, Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Brigand, Rishadan Footpad and Mystic Remora type stuff to tax and grind people down.

Megalomania Thanks for the feedback. I see what you mean and have to admit i didn't spot that problem early enough. I tend to forget that most blink cards target things I control, not own. I am still keen to keep the steal theme going though likely as a sub-theme to support a main blink theme. My game plan with stealing is to play a game of attrition through the blink theme and incrementally add value to my board by stealing other things. That said, I have only recently gotten the cards for the deck so ill know better how it plays out once i pilot it awhile.

Parallax Wave completely slipped my mind and will definitely add that to the deck. I also saw your Aminatou stax list and am considering putting in Rishadan Cutpurse and Rishadan Footpad (Rishadan Brigand is a little pricier but might consider it) for a bit more control.

For one-sided stax, I use creatures like Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Cutpurse and Rishadan Brigand. They don’t look like much but when you’ve got cards like Winter Orb and Blind Obedience in play, they work quite well in cutting everyone down to size.

Add mass flicker effects like Eerie Interlude and Parallax Wave to achieve an even more devastating effect.

I’m not very good with budget decks but I think the following cards would be great here:

Flicker Effects - Ghostway, Ghostly Flicker, Eerie Interlude, Felidar Guardian

Manifest - Mastery of the Unseen

ETB Effects - Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Brigand, Oath of Jace, and Archaeomancer

Utility - Oath of Teferi and Panharmonicon

I’m also building a similar deck. Maybe you can take a look at it so we can exchange ideas.

In my list, I used cards like Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Cutpurse and Lavinia of the Tenth. You can check my list out if you want. :)

Got the same build. Kept the cmc and power of creatures low so I can start wrecking the board early. Added cards like Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Footpad and Rishadan Brigand plus some stax pieces to give it a more competitive theme.

Leonin Relic-Warder as a substitute is a little more complicated because of the issues you mentioned about separate tiggers.

Combo works as follows:

Have Leonin Relic-Warder exile Oblivion Ring. Use Parallax Wave to remove another creature with an etb triggered effect (let's use Rishadan Cutpurse again). Then remove Leonin Relic-Warder with Parallax Wave. When Oblivion Ring enters the battlefield target Parallax Wave. When Parallax Wave leaves the battlefield the Rishadan Cutpurse and Leonin Relic-Warder will come back. Have Leonin Relic-Warder target Oblivion Ring bringing back Parallax Wave. Then have Parallax Wave target Rishadan Cutpurse followed by Leonin Relic-Warder... Repeat for infinite etb triggers.

I am aware of the other interactions you mentioned, which is why I run such a complicated combo. Each of the pieces are still useful for what the deck wants to do, and have several useful interactions.

Thanks for the suggestions. As far as the Felidar Guardian combo:

Felidar Guardian enters the battlefield, have his ability target Parallax Wave. While the ability is on the stack, use Parallax Wave targeting Felidar Guardian and another creature with an etb effect (Rishadan Cutpurse for example) and allow each ability to resolve. When the original Felidar Guardian ability resolves, the two creatures will be brought back to the battlefield triggering two new etb effects. Let the Rishadan Cutpurse's triggered ability resolve, but before the Felidar Guardian's ability resolves, use Parallax Wave again... Repeat for unlimited etb triggers.
