Ruffigan on Pauper Lab Man

3 weeks ago

I just finished putting together my version of Lab Man and it did alright in testing, was able to mill out around turn 10 or 11. Some cool synergies I found were using the wheel cards Flux, Tolarian Winds, and Whirlpool Rider with Jace's Erasure to burn through a bunch of cards at once. I also added the High Tide / Cloud of Faeries combo to try and mill myself out with Chronic Flooding or Sage's Row Denizen.

  39. Tap 3x NS for
  40. Repeat Steps 36-38 with 2 more 1DEs.
  41. Tap your 3 1DEs for

  43. Use a trigger to find Verdant Eidolon, and one to find Slippery Bogle
  44. Play Eidolon
  45. Sac Eidolon for .
  46. Play Bogle.
  47. Trigger returns Eidolon to hand
  48. Activate TS to return Bogle to hand.
  49. Repeat steps 44-48 to make infinite
  50. Use a trigger to find your win condition (e.g. Venser, Shaper Savant, Laboratory Maniac + Beast Whisperer, Sage's Row Denizen etc.)

I tried to keep the number of unnamed 1DEs to a minimum here, but you can always run more and skip the shenanigans with Devoted Druid and Seedsculptor or whatever.

The reason only a couple floating mana makes this a lot easier is that you use 2 1DEs to net a single initially, and then you need the mana to cast a Temur Sabertooth so you can keep going after getting your second Nettle Sentinel. Each extra mana reduces the chain by 2 1DEs and an extra lets you use Phantasmal Image over Metamorph to save even more mana.

passimo on Mists of Oblivion

I thought about Elvish Visionary and I do not really know which one is better, because the elf triggers Jace's Erasure but the oracle triggers Sage's Row Denizen instead. Regarding other changes, as I already said, I don't like to have only one wincon (one simple Naturalize without a counter in my hand and I lose), and I also like to enjoy myself while playing, a thing that I can't do if I play always in the same way (like draw, draw, draw, fog draw, fog etc). Also, I like to make original decks, and removing all creatures replacing them with drawing spells and fogs would be like building the standard, boring turbo-fog deck.Thanks again for your suggestions!

I was thinking about the concept and got to the conclusion that Jace's Phantasm will most likely work in tempo deck, since phantasm costs . I don't see it as much as card for control deck because when is your control online you might play better threats.

Tempo deck is about denying your opponent resources and Soaring Show-Off does the opposite in form of cards (even in the best scenario when you could chose which card your opponent will not have) is not worth it, you just gave him 1 card. But if you want to play the deck as pure control, then it is probably playable since you can control well enough what is in your opponents hand.

Another way how to make discard more viable is Wight of Precinct Six since the more stuff ends up in bin the bigger (likely) this become and you can play it in control.

Previously I used Shriekgeist but now I think that Mind Sculpt might be better because it is more effective even if it is by your words more "boring". I build a mono blue deck for this simply because 1 color works better for tempo: Mono Phantast.

Sage's Row Denizen: I would switch/combine with Ink Dissolver and played it as aggro (a lot of creatures) and build on the wizard/merfolk tribe. Not sure how it will perform since you would not control the game much and mill takes a lot of time to work.

About Vile Rebirth and Beckon Apparition it might work in deck build around Thoughtpicker Witch. The trick is that you control the top of opponent's library. I tried it before and it didn't work but maybe there is a way how to make it work. Also I would include Shamble Back since it does the same as Vile Rebirth but for the loss of instant speed you gain 2 life.

Hope we get to some spicy deck.

Kurush: Thanks for taking the time to comment, and to start: Yes, I agree with you, on both accounts. I didn't have the space left to give this deck the "Jank" label also. =P

Secondly: Yeah, I'd totally be interested in collaborating! Two heads are better than one, as they say. =)

I've done some playing with this deck and Selhoff Occultist was a tragic underperformer. It was a weird idea that I should have known better to try, but, eh. Weird ideas are what I do. I've been considering multiple options as a replacement, such as:

  • Switching over to Shriekgeist in that slot, like you did.
  • Trying Soaring Show-Off (which I mentioned to you on your deck because I think group-hug-draw alleviates the sting of getting milled a bit--people like drawing cards).
  • Something unique-ish, like adding Sage's Row Denizen and either the Show-Off or Merrow Witsniper and using Ghostly Flicker or Peel from Reality instead of normal Unsummon effects to re-trigger the Denizen... but that may be a whole new deck idea entirely.
  • Or, hell, I could just put Mind Sculpt in there and almost guarantee the Phantasm gets activated, but that's so boring.

As far as Vile Rebirth and Beckon Apparition, you're right again. And again, I'll use just "creativity" as an excuse, lol. They are cool cards, and I still think they could be built-around, but this probably isn't the place for supporting that experiment also. =(

Anyway, I've checked out your decks, and I'm definitely going to borrow some of your card choices. I still want to add Soaring Show-Off though. =P =D

Let me know what you think about my ideas for replacements. =) Meanwhile I'll pick something and give it a few plays soon. Let you know how it went.

BS-T on Looking for ETB Mill card

5 months ago

I'm wondering if there's anything I can use which has 'when a creature etb, Mill an/all opponents' or even all players including you wouldn't be the worst.

Sage's Row Denizen is the closest I can get so far, maybe Altar of the Brood ... Any more ideas?

Okay this is going to sound pretty awful but... Sage's Row Denizen?? You could just use Extract if Blessing is a 1-of, which I'm assuming it is. If not then Surgical Extraction in response to it entering the graveyard. Then denizen is just an infinite mill combo with the cloud of faeries.

However, I understand why this has come about. You have created one of the most beautifully diabolical and heinous things I have ever laid eyes on. The underworld of Magic thanks you.
