Rite of Replication Discussion

CrazyChessPlayer on Aminatou blink!!!

2 days ago

Thanks so much for your help 5c0r910n and pillowmint:)

I have made the following cuts:

Boreas Charger, Trinket Mage, Yennet, Cryptic Sovereign, Treasure Hunt, and Lightform

To add:

Mulldrifter, Ashen Rider, Infinite Reflection, Trinket Mage, Lavinia of the Tenth, and Reveillark

These are just preliminary cuts and adds. I see a lot more cards I want to put in the deck from your suggestions, but I am not sure what cards to cut for at least some of the following:

Dire Undercurrents, Cathars' Crusade, Knight-Captain of Eos, Rite of Replication, Jace's Mindseeker, and Pull from the Deep

Day of dragons looks awesome do you think Synthetic Destiny would be a worthy include as well?

I don't have a specific outlet for the Peregrine Drake combo but both cards are super powerful in blink and getting infinte mana is always helpful:) Do you think I should work some outlets in for the possibilty of comboing off or is it not worth it?

Thanks again for all your help:)

so i don't know why your running Trinket Mage, doesn't hit like anything in your deck.

In my opinion Boreas Charger isn't very good, and same goes for Pilgrim's Eye.

i don't think Lightform and Yennet, Cryptic Sovereign are too good considering your lack of big stuff

Eldrazi Displacer can only be activated with like three of your lands, so i don't think its worth running.

Mulldrifter is good here, might as well run it instead of one of your draw cards, definitly better then Treasure Hunt.

Infinite Reflection is a whole lotta fun, powerful, dumb stuff

Day of dragons is insane in this deck. Basically you get a whole bunch of 5/5 flyers, hit you opponents with em, then flicker it to get a bunch of etbs from your minions, and then get the 5/5s back. Also makes you basically immune to board wipes, including your own. Angel of Despair Luminate Primordial and Ashen Rider are good high end to help you beat down your opponents with high value etbs.

cards like Lavinia of the Tenth, Stonehorn Dignitary, Knight-Captain of Eos and Azorius Justiciar do a good job of protecting your face and aminatou, and stalling for the big stuff

if you like gonti then Jace's Mindseeker is for you.

Cathars' Crusade and Dire Undercurrents are really good with stuff like Eerie Interlude

Rite of Replication, Hour of Eternity and Pull from the Deep are crazy in the late game

if you can find one Blade of Selves is really good

Spirits on Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!!

Hi hoardofnotions,

Thanks for the comments on Spirits Wall.

What do you guys use to value your decks? We use Deckstats.net Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!! Deck. $60.82 - Basic Lands $1.10 = $59.72. We always found TCGPlayer.com (Sidebar) was always missing cards (Caution triangle), and was so variable made it unpleasant. Interested to know what you guys settled on.

Rakdos Charm in all honesty is not the best, but it is modular (graveyard protection), and it kills a go-wide token strategy that you indicated to have issues with. Also, or alternatively, you can run board clearing, like Chandra's Ignition or Whipflare.

Ontop of Dualcaster Mage + Ghostly Flicker + Piranha Marsh, Archaeomancer + Peregrine Drake also work.Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon can also, but he is high risk. Maybe some additional Tutors to consistently get the Ghostly Flicker.

Rite of Replication + Dualcaster Mage / Naru Meha, Master Wizard is infinite Wizards (Don't even need to kick it). Rite of Replication is good on it's own too, especially with all the ETB's you run. Add a Gray Merchant of Asphodel and that's a win-con (unless the opponent is playing heavy life gain), does 60 damage to each opponent ( x 6 Gray Merchant of Asphodel + 5 triggers) by itself, and you gain 180 life.

I see the mana fixing in the base, but so many tapped lands can slow you down too much. May overcome this with the ramp?

Dinrova Horror I understand he can be a powerhouse, and recurring him makes him good, but High CMC, and can't target yourself (efficiently anyway).

Dreamscape Artist that is a hell of a price to pay, I wouldn't. If it could pull any land maybe, but not basic.

I'm not sure Duplicant is effective enough, and high CMC, for his $ cost in a budget format. There's lots of ETB's to abuse, for sure, he is one of them, but not sure worth it. Would rather have money for a Rite of Replication.

Withered Wretch and Ingot Chewer are ok, but I would rather have a Rakdos Charm, I realize can't flicker them, but those creatures aren't the greatest anyway, and Withered Wretch doesn't benefit from flicker.

I would play but evaluate Discovery / Dispersal, doesn't provide any card advantage, have to see how often it is Surveil a card into the graveyard that you return as a %. If it inconsistently works, I wouldn't run it. If you find your usually recurring the card it throws, or your aggressive enough to dig for a combo piece, might be ok. Hard to evaluate.

Evil Twin (CMC4) can be great, or not. Situational. Same with Memory Plunder, too random, too situational. Difficult to evaluate it's value, I usually stay away from those.

Animate Dead is very high $, again would rather see something like a Rite of Replication in it's place.

Nightscape Familiar is not a terrible ramp, and he has Regenerate, so can block Non-Flample pretty good.

Devastation Tide scares me to, because you probably rebuild your board the slowest (or close to the slowest). I wouldn't want to reset myself, after doing all the ramping work. Might be situational good on occasion, but rarely on a miracle. There is a blue card (not Cyclonic Rift that does opponents stuff, name escapes me now, but it has a very high CMC)

Commit / Memory at CMC4 seems pretty high too. Seems to much, lose the game with it in hand and unable to cast, or saving CMC4 and don't end up using it. Not Flash or anything (other than the copy spell guys) to really utilize the saved mana, or draw, etc. Some with the artifact returns/recur though.

Burnished Hart is really good, I know he doesn't ETB, but if you can recur him, lots of ramping. A little $ expensive too.

Most of your drawing is CMC 3+ which, I understand early turns your playing tapped lands for the most part, so you're slowly moving, then turn 3-5 your trying to draw. You have a couple tutors, but you might get overwhelmed before you can get to it. Luckily in a multi-pod, you'll probably be left alone for a while, but hard to evaluate if your fast enough. Since you restrict to only Tier 4+ commanders, you may have enough time, our league doesn't restrict, just restricts the budget, Animar or Brago, you'd never get ahead of, so you have that going for you!

Cloud of Faeries + Deadeye Navigator + Dimir Aqueduct or Izzet Boilerworks or Rakdos Carnarium does indeed make infinite mana.

Razaketh's Rite is high CMC, but the Cycling makes it playable if drawn in opening rounds.

Sever the Bloodline is great for Horde removal too (or indestructible), or Bile Blight. Not sure how often you see it though, we have 1/1 Snake and 2/2 Wolf and */* Vampire in our league. Tragic Slip too (instant speed).

Murder is a good budget removal too. Can free up some $ with a Dissipate instead of Counterspell.

I like the draw on Illusionist's Stratagem but the CMC4 sucks, it's still good though because it triggers the 2 creatures, which you need.

Custodi Lich is awesome (for the extra draw and the sacrifice), but his $ and his CMC5 make him not budget friendly. Plus he many not even get the target your really want to kill, and sorcery speed. Once the Monarch is on the table, if you don't have a way to take it back, you may actually hurt yourself by giving away card advantage.

Notion Thief is best with Wheel of Fortune type effects, or when you play "all players draw a card" type effects. Not sure if you've found him consistent enough in this flicker type build?

Good deck idea, like the flicker. +1.

i once had 5 Consuming Aberrations on the board worth 200+ each after kicking Rite of Replication bc we did a 4 player game where we each played two decks. I had fun, they did not. this decklist will increase the 'unfun'.

theETG on Cosmic Wolves

This looks like a really good first draft! There are a few suggestions I'd like to make.

First, I'm not sure if Riku is the best commander for this deck. He'll make tokens for all of your creatures, but none of those tokens will get to transform. That having been said, you do have a few cards, like Parallel Evolution and Parallel Lives that play well with him. But I think removing the token theme altogether will give you a more streamlined deck. Although you should always run Rite of Replication, imo. In the spirit of keeping with your Blue/Green/Red colors, I'd recommend Surrak Dragonclaw. It's most likely you'll want to win games by getting in with creature damage, and giving everything Trample is a great way to make sure you'll be able to connect your swings. Protecting your creatures from counterspells is a nice little bonus.

I also think you're running too many lands. You should probably only have between 38-42. If you're worried about mana problems, run a few ramp spells, like Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation.

Werewolves are a small tribe, and don't get as much love as other tribes, but there are a few cards that you could add still. Lambholt Elder  Flip, Afflicted Deserter  Flip, Scorned Villager  Flip, Wolfbitten Captive  Flip, and Kessig Forgemaster  Flip would all make welcome (not to mention inexpensive) additions. Since you're running Blue, you could also justify putting in a few more clone creatures like Altered Ego. Check out Phantasmal Image, Quicksilver Gargantuan, and, of course, Clone. There are a number of these kinds of creatures you could include if you're willing to look into them. The best part? If they enter as a copy of a transformed werewolf, if something would cause them to flip back to human, they remain in wolf form instead! Also, consider Alpha Brawl. It's very on theme, and, more importantly, it's really funny.

I'd also recommend adding some answers to your opponent's threats to your deck. You have a couple of ways of dealing with creatures, but against artifacts, token armies, and decks that rely on fliers, you might have a hard time. Check out Ancient Grudge, Vandalblast, Beast Within, Cyclonic Rift, and Blasphemous Act as potential answers, or consider other options you might have.

Also, this is just a footnote, but I'm not quite sure what Bonus Round does for your deck? It only interacts with seven other cards in your current decklist, and of those, only three are really worth spending the extra mana on. I think it's an easy cut.

My first pseudo competitive deck in Modern was UG Landfall with Amulet of Vigor, Primeval Titan, and Rite of Replication. (Not much landfall there except for Undergrowth Champion now that I think about it.) But it was fun to play. I will have to rebuild it now that I am a more tuned-in modern player with a better understanding of what's good in a deck.

Advisorofdark, thank you for your comment, but I don't think I will be adding those cards.

I don't particularly care for cards that don't have any other gimmick besides it's big/big. All it would take is one creature and opponents can block it. I instead like cards that have an ETB effect. With ETB effects, even if someone blows up the creature with a kill spell or a board wipe, I still benefited from it since it already entered the battlefield. I can also abuse it with either Marchesa's ability or cards like Rite of Replication.

In regards to sac outlets, I am content with what I already have. I sometimes prefer to leave counters on my creatures until I can get a board wipe. It serves as a way to protect my creatures form others that want to kill my stuff. I can get rid of other people's removal spells by having them waste them on my creatures, while simultaneously abusing my ETB effects.

Hello! Nice deck. Some ideas: Jace, Unraveler of Secrets for additional card draw, Entomb and Vampiric Tutor as tutors, Dark Salvation instead of Glimpse the Unthinkable (mill is not your main strategy, am I right?), Damnation and/or Languish (you definitely need board wipes), Scourge of Nel Toth (it's not a problem to sacrifice Gravecrawler and a Zombie token to cast him from your graveyard), Vengeful Pharaoh (nice ability + deathtouch), Grimoire of the Dead and Rite of Replication - just for more fun.
