Seer's Vision Discussion
3 months ago
@mortifolkmurphcaster: Hi, thanks for commenting and first of all: sorry for me taking so long to answer you. I'm not that active on tappedout anymore and only saw your comment today.
I'm glad you liked my deck and found some inspiration for your own. The deck evolved quite a bit over time and the deck description isn't up to date anymore (the decklist is almost up to date though). So before answering your questions I might make a few remarks about my deck in its current state:
I discarded a lot of the cooler but clunkier cards, that initially gave rise to the deck, like Head Games , Jester's Mask , Ghastlord of Fugue , Seer's Vision and Mindleech Mass , because they just weren't doing anything useful in most games, especially when I was already behind.
Two of the cards that stayed in and that are crucial for where the deck is now are Silent-Blade Oni and Doomsday Specter . Because both of those cards work well with small creatures that have etb effects I decided to create this really creature heavy build. But maybe there are better ways of building the deck and especially Doomsday Specter can be quite disappointing sometimes.
I can also say that I seldomly find myself casting Sen Triplets but I don't know if this is because of my play mistakes or because of the triplets drawing too much hate. I recently added Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage to help Sen Triplets get down (one can also use Shimmer Myr ). When I win games, I most often do so because of a Bribery after a long and exhausting attrition war or something like that. Unfortunately I wasn't able to pull off an infinite combo win that used the cards of my opponents yet.
I didn't know about Thrull Surgeon and Pilfering Imp . Thanks for the suggestions! I will not include them in the current build because it does not play enough from the graveyard to recur them regularly. I focus on creatures that have an etb effect, and then I bounce them back to my hand.
Windfall effects in combination with cards like Narset, Parter of Veils are brutal and, although I do not shy at treating my playgroup like that, I would not include them because I see a nombo between effects that give everyone 7 fresh cards and my strategy of casting/discarding the opponents cards. My deck does not play out cards that fast which is reinforced by the fact that I sometimes play the opponents cards instead of mine with Sen Triplets . So Windfall would likely help the opponents more than it helps me. While it is good as a combo with Narset, Parter of Veils and Notion Thief , on its own it doesn't fit into the overall deck strategy that well. But maybe one could trim down the mana curve a bit more and then all the small creatures in combination with windfall effects and Notion Thief could be strong, but I'm not quite sure.
Ok, I think that's all for now. Again, thanks for your comment!

Hi Yylon I want to say that if you are going Stax, your commander should be, Grand Augustin. If you are playing Oloro like this I suggest a more control deck not Stax. You can still use Oloro for card draw, if u want to keep the commander as Oloro, but I don't suggest that. A final word(or 2) of you still go this route, put in Seer's Vision to see what they have and etc. Also you are still going to gain life, and if the game stretches long enough, especially if it becomes a 1v1 in a match,i suggest adding just one or two cards that utilize your life, like Aetherflux Reservoir .

Hi Jayd0nlink thx for the suggestions. I think I am going to try to get lands under 1 dollar. I think I am going to add Seat of the Synod . Cascading Cataracts is a nice choice I am going to add. Since this deck is trying to get other peoples cards, I need the opponent to have cards I want. I want to take out Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , also Colossus of Akros . I know Blightsteel Colossus is an amazing add, but its not really a necessary card. Wurmcoil Engine is also usually a automatic add in most EDH decks but, ehhh, I think its going in my Daretti deck. Coastal Breach technically is not necessary. I would rather use target removal, or bounce.
Cards going in------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cards going out----------------------------------------------------------------------- - Blightsteel Colossus - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - Colossus of Akros - Wurmcoil Engine - Coastal Breach - Inkwell Leviathan - Scoured Barrens - Persuasion
THX for all the suggestions. IF you could tell me how its looking, that would be great. Again, just in case, this deck utilizes other peoples cards, and hands,bouncing stuff they already casted. Letting them draw cards for our use. Helm of the Host can do wonky stuff with our commander, letting us control other peoples hands, more than one.

Seer's Vision is a new one for me, good find! Looks like a fun, solid deck.

I reckon you're overlooking quite a powerful piece of your commander. You can exile creatures from ANYONE'S graveyard!
I suggest looking into some sweet black discard for opponents. Something like Lay Bare the Heart so you can pick out something powerful to throw into the graveyard and use it without relying on your own graveyard so much. Use something like Seer's Vision so you know who to target

If you're looking for a card that has hands revealed might I suggest Seer's Vision, it's a Telepathy with the option to force a discard if you have to. If you like Windfall's effect you'll probably get a lot of value out of Whispering Madness with all your specters.
I could probably keep suggesting different discard/mill/reanimate like cards, but a thunderstorm might cut me out so I'll stop at suggesting you look at the deck I linked above, there's some pretty sweet effects in there you could consider trying out.

I'm gonna start from scratch with this deck. The cards i've already gotten are Bribery, Mystic Remora, Clone, Seer's Vision, and some other things. I'm hoping to purchase Memnarch, Sen Triplets, , and Aethersnatch . I went to FNM at another game store and mostly everyone there was playing commander but the few who played standard had $200 or more decks. There was a commander deck that had a turn three win which was insane. Everyone played in pods and they played for the chance to win the new commander decks. All the people who go to the game store I went to are kids or people who can spend $10,000 on a deck, mainly commander. So i'm going back to the other game store I went to. My standard deck has too many high cost cards and almost everyone there was playing burn or aggro so I failed miserably. If I add menarche to the deck I plan to add Sydri, Galvanic Genius . It's going to take me forever to finish this deck because of how much the cards cost that I want to put in. For example Demonic Tutor is $44 and I don't have that kind of money so it's going to take at least 5 or 6 months before I have the final product.
