Gakros on Karador Hulkweaver Chieftain

2 days ago

SwiftDeath thanks for checking out my karador deck. This is my main deck for about 2 years now.And yeah Apprentice Necromancer and Wake the Dead where mind-blowing the first time i discovered them and tried them. they are realllyyyyy good with Entomb.
Sun Titan is on my swap radar but not for the immediate list.I use him as way to bring precious artifacts/enchantments back or as a bad way to ramp.
Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat awlways felt non needed for me. Once i have a loop in place i can:
A.Acidic Slime to remove all lands
B.Knight of Autumn gain infinite life
C.Saffi Eriksdotter + Protean Hulk put all my creatures from my library into play.
D.Sun Titan /Renegade Rallier bring back a milled Altar of Dementia and mill everyone out.
and it doesn't matter what my opponents do.I have a loop if they play a land i will destroy it again,so my playgtoup knows. Once i declare i have an infinite loop we call it "GG" and go for the next game. So lifegain effects seems like wasted slots for me. I will look to your deck also. Keep in mind i play in near-competitive meta (no Mana Vault or other extremely expensive stuff) so besides having a really bad hand my deck does fairly well :)

This is probably a stupid question but how do you win with the Loyal Retainers if you don't have Saffi Eriksdotter.

Rhadamanthus on Body Snatcher death trigger and ...

I had a big long response typed out and then realized I didn't understand your question correctly the first time.

Yes, that works. When Body Snatcher dies in your example, both its own ability and the effect created by Saffi Eriksdotter trigger at the same time. Since you control both, you get to decide what order to put them onto the stack.

Body Snatcher won't get exiled from the battlefield when its trigger finally resolves because when it changes zones, it's considered a different object. The trigger that's looking for the Body Snatcher that's supposed to be in the graveyard won't be able to find it on the battlefield.

SwiftDeath on Boonweaver giant combo without a ...

You should still be able to combo off using the same cards but with one added search from Boonweaver Giant. If you shoot Karmic Guide to itself then you can use the new Boonweaver to get Reveillark. That in turn shoots itself to trigger LTB effect and get back Karmic Guide, this time shoot opponent for 2 damage. Get back Boonweaver. shoot itself, get Saffi Eriksdotter Use saffi to shoot karmic guide, in response before damage is dealt sac Saffi targeting Karmic Guide. Karmic dies to saffi damage and Rarmic returns to delayed Saffi trigger. target Karmic Guide for damage to itself and target Reveillark with Karmic ETB trigger. Let karmic die first, this is important. Reveillark enter shoots itself. LTB target Karmic Guide and Saffi. Use Karmic Guide to target opponent and Saffi to target Karmic Guide for damage. In response sac Saffi targeting Karmic Guide. Start loop from Karmic returns to delayed Saffi trigger.

This will cause a loop that deals 2 damage to any target every time the loop resolves. Hope this helps albeit very late. I found this Q&A while asking my own question. I'm also a very proficient combo player of the Karmic / Reveillark lines.

SwiftDeath on Body Snatcher death trigger and ...

6 days ago

I have Saffi Eriksdotter in play with another sac outlet. I play Body Snatcher discarding Reveillark from my hand. I sac Saffi targeting Body Snatcher. Then I sac Body Snatcher targeting Reveillark. Body Snatcher returns from Saffi trigger, Sac Body snatcher in response this time targeting Saffi. When stack clears Saffi and Reveillark should be in play and Body Snatcher exiled to the second return trigger.

Can I stack the death triggers so Body Snatcher returns to the battlefield before it is exiled and if I do so does it get exiled after leaving zones. Does it matter if it is in the graveyard after the effects resolution? Does this interaction not work the way I think it does?

I want to end the boardstate with Reveillark and Saffi in play so I can continue my combo with any creature power 2 or less in my graveyard. I know there are better ways to do this but with my board and hand this was the only way I could accomplish this.

ShreddedByCrows on Offenza is the Best Defenza

Lots of subthemes you got there, that's some interesting challenge. All in all, you're running way too many high-costed cards for a Commander that generally revolves around more of an aggressive strategy. I'll further provide you a personalized list of adjustments, trying my best to keep it at the lowest budget as possible.

Very first thing, 37 lands is too much for an Anafenza deck imo. You can easily go down to 35/34 in order to feel more proactive. That being said, the mana base of your decklist is pretty unstable, and you'll need better mana rocks, around 5/6 good rocks should do it helping you stabilizing.

The second thing to bring up is that you play loads and loads of creatures with actually specific abilities that don't always combine altogether well. Like, for example, in which way would Slimefoot, the Stowaway help Anafenza, the Foremost being consistent? My answer, without another kind of appreciation than logic: not any single one. If you need cheap legendary to keep it up with your theme, there are better options, but remind that this was only a little example.

Finally, you lack reactivity because of very few instant/flash spells. It's not as necessary as some think, but still have a way to protect dutifully your creatures is a key for aggro/midrange decks in EDH. Being able to answer what your opponents bring up to the tape is moreover essential, and I don't see enough removals/tricks in there.

So, let's take a closer look from now on. I'll make some different categories starting with the cuts to make it easier to read.

1.) Back to 100 cards:

2.) Cheap Improvements:

2.1.) Mana Rocks:

2.2.) More removals:

Those are the classical ones you surely know. They are easily affordable and would give your deck a small lift at controlling the board state.

2.3.) Better Legendaries:

  • Mikaeus, the Lunarch > not the cheapest already, but really effective, almost a staple for your deck style

  • Hope of Ghirapur > underrated card, does a lot, insane with recursion to lock down a combo player at low cost

  • Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit > certainly a staple / and somewhat a reason to get rid of the token subtheme which is maybe a bit too much

  • Syr Faren, the Hengehammer > also certainly a staple / aggressive, good interactions with Anafenza, better than lords already in your deck

  • Kethis, the Hidden Hand > Yawgmoth's Will for legendaries? I'll take that. It could also be a nice alternative commander when you face more control-ish decks you're stuck against, enabling you to have an efficient late game on its own once made your commander.

  • Mangara of Corondor > Legendary creature which works as a nonsituational removal. Really good. Even if you can't always activate it when it hits the table, your opponents have to get rid of it using their hand resources and you make 1 for 1.

  • Masako the Humorless > Underplayed card / can be a game-changer / and it's a legendary creature.

2.4.) Voltron Outlet:

2.5.) Other cool cards to look at:

3.) Medium Budget Improvements:

3.1.) Mana Rocks:

3.2.) Even more removals:

3.3.) Legendaries' Staples:

3.4.) Neverending Voltron Outlet:

  • Konda's Banner > Yeh, it's a little bit expensive money speaking, but it does everything you're searching for, like a bridge between your Cats, your legends and your Voltron strategy.

  • Skullclamp > staple

3.5.) Cool cards:

4.) Expensive Improvements:

5.) Some other cards you could try (which I mostly haven't, or for which I have a doubt about their efficiency):

Kynewt on Kethis, this deck is legendary

bantrules12 Saffi Eriksdotter is an awesome card! Thanks for suggesting it. Absolutely adding it.

Jgalls13 Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is a great card for this deck but i’m not sure if it is good enough to boot anything else. The CMC is a little high for my taste. Powerful card though!
