Semblance Anvil Discussion

Darth_Savage Thanks for giving this so much attention! I'll definitely put some of these in.

Let me go through these here.

Brain Maggot - I like the suggestion to have enchantment creatures and I will definitely add one of the ones you suggested. Not sure if I can completely let go of my Fountain of Renewal though because it's an easy trigger for the infinite combo.

Semblance Anvil - Good catch on enchantment and creature discounts. Combined with Crypt Ghast this stuff is gonna get pretty cheap. Adding it.

Brainspoil - This is certainly better, but not for the reasons you mentioned. I don't think I would ever manage to use it as a kill spell unless Crypt Ghast were out. What makes it better is that fact that Beseech the Queen requires you to get a card with a CMC less than or equal too the amount of lands you have, meaning I could tutor till turn 5 at the earliest. This can be used much earlier. And you're right, I really only meant this to tutor for the game enders.

Noxious Revival - You're a hero for finding this. I can fix my freaking mana finally.

Thanks for all this it really helped my situation. Can't wait to try it all out.

You can actually do this and stay in mono black:

4x Fountain of Renewal > 4x Brain Maggot, it has a useful effect, but more importantly it's type Enchantment Creature which means if you feed it to Semblance Anvil your creature and your enchantments are reduced in price by , note that it won't ever reduce the cost by more than 2, well unless you have multiple Anvils in play.

4x Hissing Miasma > Semblance Anvil, Hissing doesn't do enough and it costs 3 mana, swap it out for Anvil and enjoy the cost reduction.

4x Beseech the Queen > Brainspoil both of these tutors are limited, but the only thing you want to tutor for are the game ending enchantments. In a push Brainspoil is also a removal spell, of my suggestions this is the one I'm least sure of, but I think you should test it.

4x Tragic Poet > Noxious Revival, just pay the 2 life, you would pay the same amount for Godless Shrine so why not stay mono black.

Tragic Poet, is not the solution you want, play Noxious Revival and then you don't need to splash white. Second point Semblance Anvil can make your enchantments cheaper as can Herald of the Pantheon and if you want draw then Eidolon of Blossoms / Commune with the Gods. I guess my point is, if you are splashing anything it should probably be green... Hope this helps, have fun brewing your deck.

SamsWrath on [cEDH] Krenko Combo

Krenko is hard to tune for cEDH because at his best he's probably still a 2.5-tier commander. I play Krenko as my "fair" deck but, I have given some though into making him faster. One thing I'm 100% sure of is that outside of a turn 1 wheel that has tons of ramp and nets another wheel, I see no way to get a turn 1 win with Krenko. Below are some of the cards I've considered that you don't currently have in your list.

Kavle on Bitterheart Splendor

TBH, forgot Semblance Anvil was a thing. That can replace both heartless and Pentad. With heartless gone, might even put Lingering Souls in as well. Will have to shift some things to get the enchantment creatures in, but I'm willing to try it! Thanks for the suggestions.

Quick thoughts, first I'd suggest this deck needs 4 copies of Footsteps of the Goryo, and maybe a couple of Unburial Rites, giving you a reanimator shell, I'd cut Starfield of Nyx, not sure what else. Second Flayer of the Hatebound should replace Ravenous Chupacabra, mostly because it has Undying, turns Accursed Witch into a bolt and if you have the chance to reanimate Greater Gargadon, ouch. Lastly Semblance Anvil might be a better way of reducing your costs, since the type Enchantment Creature exist as does the mechanic Constellation and this is basically an enchantment deck, so maybe Underworld Coinsmith or Grim Guardian? You would need four of both Anvil and whichever dual type card you fancy, but you could cut Heartless Summoning for sure...

As I said, quick thoughts, hope they are helpful, good luck with your brew...

Darth_Savage on Mono B Zombies but its really mono G ramp

2 weeks ago

I love the insanity of this, so have a +1, but I wonder would Semblance Anvil in conjunction with Gnarled Scarhide and Spiteful Returned, both zombies but of type enchantment and creature make it a little faster?

SamsWrath on Bosh EDH

Just a few suggestions.

Daretti, Scrap Savant might actually be a much better commander for this deck.

Also, you may want to consider the following cards:
