Sakashima the Impostor Discussion

holybreep on Draw till you die!

12 hours ago

Sup, here are my initial thoughts:

Lands:Surprised you're not running Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. You can prob come down to 37 lands too.

Creatures:I'd prob cut:

  1. Nin, the Pain Artist
  2. Magus of the Will
  3. Magus of the Wheel
  4. Magus of the Jar
  5. Jace's Archivist

I'd prob bring in:

  1. Clever Impersonator
  2. Sakashima the Impostor
  3. Archfiend of Ifnir - spicy board wipe synergy - breaks through indestructible too :D
  4. Seizan, Perverter of Truth
  5. Consecrated Sphinx
  6. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
  7. Sire Of Insanity

Enchantments:

Keep these:

  1. Bloodchief Ascension
  2. Dictate of Kruphix
  3. Waste Not

I think these would be pretty sick in place of all the other enchantments:

  1. Liliana's Caress
  2. Phyresis
  3. Fevered Visions
  4. Megrim
  5. Underworld Dreams
  6. Breathstealer's Crypt
  7. Helm of the Ghastlord
  8. Leyline of Anticipation
  9. Leyline of the Void
  10. Hive Mind = EPIC!
  11. Well of Ideas

Artifacts:No Temple Bell and Elixir of Immortality!?!

Could prob add more rocks too.

Instants:I think these are the only instants you really need:

  1. Cyclonic Rift
  2. Shadow of the Grave - new tech!
  3. Wheel and Deal
  4. Sunder
  5. Commit / Memory - more new tech!

Sorcery:

These are prob the only ones I'd run:

  1. Reforge the Soul
  2. Whispering Madness
  3. Incendiary Command
  4. Windfall
  5. Wheel of Fortune
  6. Molten Psyche
  7. Dark Deal

:D

A pet card for my derevi deck is Reconnaissance. On the end of combat step, you can use it to untap your creatures, Also, Sakashima the Impostor keeps her name, so you can have 2 derevis... leading to double derevi triggers.

I suggest trading out Nature's Lore for Farseek, if you can cast either spell you've already got green and this lets you nab Watery Grave. Beacon of Unrest is a reusable Rise from the Grave. I wasn't aware you wanted clone effects but here are some good ones in your colors; Altered Ego, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Quicksilver Gargantuan, Sakashima the Impostor, Gigantoplasm, and Stunt Double.

Any Ezuri deck should run Sakashima the Impostor. Why not have two Claws of progress?

If you're willing to fork over the money, Doubling Season is one of Ezuri's most synergistic cards. That, as well as Panharmonicon.

To protect yourself from karona, I would suggest putting in a copy of every vow, (Vow of Duty, Vow of Flight, Vow of Malice, Vow of Lightning, Vow of Wildness) and Assault Suit. and to give buffs, you could run Shared Triumph, Cover of Darkness, Adaptive Automaton, Door of Destinies, Belbe's Portal, Brass Herald, and finally Obelisk of Urd, and my personal favorite card in karona strategies, is Sakashima the Impostor, It keeps its name, allowing you to get and keep a second copy of your commander.

hab noch was vergessen :D

Fierce Empath um die teuren kreaturen zu bekommen, den behemoth uswFires of Yavimaya und Hammer of Purphoros fuer boardhaste Coastal Piracy zsm mit dem Thassa Artefakt fuer den draw

die Savage Ventmaw+Atarka, World Render+Dragonlord Atarka geschichte lohnt sich selbst wenn nur diese drei drachen gespielt werden, vor allem eben mit haste bzw der dragonlord ist auch nice fuer blink, wenn auch teuer. Utvara Hellkite ist dann auch noch ein netter drache, passt ja zum thema von Surrak.

viele Kopien a la Clever Impersonator, Stunt Double, Phyrexian Metamorph, Sakashima the Impostor und Clone spielen sich cool mit den etb triggern oder eben auf nen hellkite oder ventmaw

Manglehorn scheint ne nuetzliche neuere karte zu sein,um den gegner zu behindern, und natuerlich ist ein Teferi, Temporal Archmage mega gut

Shaman of the Forgotten Way und Somberwald Sage sind gute manadorks und ziele fuer Woodland Bellower

also your avg. cmc cost is only 3.5 so i think your land count is a little high i would drop it to like 36 or 37 that will make room for a few cards and not that there is anything wrong with all the counters you have but you could probably take a few of the weaker ones out to make room for some cards also since your copying stuff i noticed you don't have Sakashima the Impostor, or Memnach in there hope i helped some.

PurePazaak on Current Ezuri Build

4 weeks ago

So I have an Ezuri, Claw of Progress build, myself. You should check it out! I'm gonna give you some ideas, as I may have a few more experience counters than you xD

The suggestions I make are from my list, but I won't mention any cards outside of your budget. Let's get started!

This is alphabetical, not in order of relevance:

  • Avenger of Zendikar is a bomb! He usually produces 7 tokens (sometimes more, rarely less). That's 7 Ezuri triggers! A great way to spend some mana.
  • Birthing Pod is good; in my opinion, it is secondary to Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (more on him later)
  • Breeding Pool is in your sideboard, but is a little out of your budget. If you're willing to buy it, there is absolutely no reason to leave it out of your deck
  • Cyclonic Rift is an auto-include, as you are playing a blue EDH deck
  • As brian.olson542 mentioned, Fathom Mage is amazing with Ezuri. It's the best card draw you'll get
  • Green Sun's Zenith is amazing if you have enough green creatures to make it relevant. Tutoring is important in Commander, especially with a toolbox build (Ezuri can easily be a very effective toolbox). If you have too many blue/artifact creatures, I would go for other tutors
  • Hinterland Harbor is from my favorite cycle of lands. In a 2-color deck, it will usually enter the battlefield _UN_tapped, without having to Shock yourself. Wonderful!
  • You would be amazed at just how useful Kiora's Follower is. Got a tapped Simic Growth Chamber, Sol Ring, or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood? No problem :) Of course, it can also untap any creatures you have, as well as tapping an opponent's artifacts/creatures. So much utility in one little creature!
  • I am familiar with Lifecrafter's Bestiary (or the Pokedex, as I call it). However, I have not tried it in my Ezuri Claw build. I'd be interested in seeing how it plays out!
  • Murkfiend Liege is definitely not as good as Seedborn Muse, but it is also 90% cheaper, so that's okay
  • Mycoloth is one of the best ways to get more counters! You needn't devour anything as it enters, though you certainly may. Just dump XP into it, and you get some tokens, which gives you more XP, which gives you more tokens, which gives...
  • Panharmonicon - yesyesYES!!! This card is bonkers! Creatures that create tokens when they enter the battlefield (i.e.: Avenger of Zendikar) will create twice that amount! But wait - There's more! Those tokens will trigger Ezuri TWICE! For those of you following along at home, that's FOUR TIMES the Ezuri triggers for those tokens. You can't afford to pass that up!
  • Rashmi, Eternities Crafter really doesn't play with Ezuri, but it is an A+ Simic card.
  • PUT IN Sage of Hours!!! He is an infinite combo, and a win condition. If you have 4 XP, play Sage, get another XP, enter combat, place 5 counters on Sage and remove them instantly, take an extra turn. Then do the same thing next turn. Then the next. Then the next. You see where i'm going here? It's infinite turns, my friend. There's no cooler way to win (well... except for Now I Know My ABC's... but that's a different deck)
  • I don't usually like taplands, but I make an excuse for Temple of Mystery. The artwork alone keeps it in, and the scrying is noice
  • Yavimaya Coast is another solid and inexpensive option for mana

This is kinda alphabetical... but not really. _()_/

Whew! Well I gave you a lot to think about, there. feel free to ask questions about anything I've suggested; I'd be happy to give you examples from games I've played, etc. Good luck, and happy deck-teching!
