driule on MONO BLUE - Fly over! Low mana cost

3 days ago

Murphy77 I've played a lot with this deck, so I completely disagree about Walking Ballista - this is must have in this deck, reasons are:

  • great combo with Warkite Marauder;
  • about 1/4 games are won by finishing opponent lifes with it;
  • great mana sinker.

Nimble Obstructionist is used in sideboard, because it is relatively mana expensive card.

3x Favorable Winds would be way too much (tried in practice), it slows down deck, especially against many removals it is not worth to play it all (and many removals against me is usually the case)

Curious Obsession is vulnerable, I agree with that, but I gamble with it and many times it helped me a lot. I try to defend that creature with Siren Stormtamer and dive down

I consider main deck competetive enough, but sideboard must be improved with Sentinel Totem, Entrancing Melody and Admiral's Order

@cdkime thank you so much for your insight and suggestions! I agree with your points and have been feeling the same regarding some cards such as Patient Rebuilding and Startled Awake  Flip, as well as removing the Planeswalkers altogether.

Jace's Archivist was also admittedly slow and was added as a fun gimmick to see how much I could mill with the original Fraying Sanity + Psychic Corrosion combo.

Syncopate... Let's forget I even made that choice, no idea why I had that in a deck like this.

For my meta regarding the people I play on a the regular, Jace's Phantasm has indeed helped me out in utilizing them as a blocker while I prep in the early game, but it does take away one mana I could be using on a Hedron Crab, Visions of Beyond or a milling spell. For now they will serve as a placeholder until I find a more suitable replacement, as well as easy sideboard option for other cards like Sentinel Totem, Mind Funeral, or Surgical Extraction.

I agree with swapping out Opt for Visions of Beyond. No arguments here the card is amazing.

I'd love to hear your feedback on the changes I made accordingly to your advice and more or less if I also adjusted my lands to compensate for adding Glimpse the Unthinkable to the main and both Surgical Extraction and Mind Funeral to the sideboard.

@PhoenixNest I did test out Fleet Swallower in a very early build when I first started to play, but for the same reason you both stated before the cost is too high to resolve its effect consistently. Thank you though for all your suggestions! :)

Hi smiffdemon, Ground Seal doesn't actually stop Bojuka Bog and Leyline of the Void because those cards don't target the graveyard. Cards like Witchbane Orb and Orbs of Warding would stop Bojuka but not Leyline, Scavenger Grounds, Sentinel Totem, Relic of Progenitus, Rest in Peace, or Morningtide. The best way to play against graveyard hate is to just treat the graveyard as bonus card draw that you fill incrementally as needed rather than dump half your library into.

Why are you using Overflowing Insight when you could be using Commit it acts as a removal spell for when you trigger Psychic Corrosion and provides a bunch of triggers on Psychic Corrosion from the Memory part. As long as you are running an exile effect to help with graveyards like Crook of Condemnation or Sentinel Totem you can usually win the game. Plus with graveyard decks in the format like UB or Grixis Scarab God builds it generally lends a helpful hand.

Oh Hell Yeah! I love me some ninja tech. I don't quite know what you have planned but don't forget Sakashima's Student although it might hurt the budget. Another card worth looking at, if you can squeeze it in your 50$ budget, is Duplicant because colorless exile on a stick? Yes, please. It's cc allows for some nice burn when ripping it off the top with our commander.

Now for some sweet budget tech. Sandstone Oracle is a flying threat that refills our hand and hits the table for 7 damage off the top of our library. I know Steel Hellkite is a popular budget option to deal with enchantments and artifacts in Grixis but I would give Meteor Golem a try. I find the dragon often eats removal on sight or gets chumped which prevents you from dealing with the problematic permanent you absolutely need to destroy. The golem circumvents all that with it's ETB ability. It's clean and recurrable.

Lim-Dul's Vault, Shadows of the Past, Read the Bones and Cryptic Annelid have a home here. Other interesting options include Mystic Speculation, Darksteel Pendant and Sentinel Totem which doubles as GY hate. Finally I would also consider Prognostic Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx and Arbiter of the Ideal.

Anyway man. I'm looking forward to the build and video!

Bring in Scavenger Grounds, if you can, or some other way to exile graveyards like Silent Gravestone or Sentinel Totem. This will go in combo with Commit // Memory. Then put in Pull from Tomorrow instead of Opt, granting you the ability to draw a bunch, milling your opponent.

Force_of_Willb on Lazav, take up thy graveyard and walk

You have many Eldrazi that care about cards being exiled but you only have 7 effects in the deck that exile cards? Do you have issues having enough exiled targets?

If you need more effects maybe consider some cards with annihilator: Artisan of Kozilek / Bane of Bala Ged,

Dimensional Infiltrator seems to be in flavor with the deck if you think you have enough colorless mana support (8)

Or removal Ashes to Ashes, Curse of the Swine, Reality Shift, Phyrexian Scriptures, All Is Dust

or add more of the usual graveyard removal artifacts: Tormod's Crypt, Nihil Spellbomb, Sentinel Totem, Relic of Progenitus

Lastly a personal favorite in my mill EDH decks Undead Alchemist which I think you can still copy with Lazav and exile if you stack the triggers correctly.

Svedanya on Jhoira Brawl

Hey man, here to give a couple directions you could take with this baby. I've highly anticipated the release of the new jhoira, and here are some of the cards I would add in as some great all around includes.

Some cards here will be explanatory, but others I will defend here.

Icy Manipulator is a great way to tap down tricky flip lands, and other hard to deal with threats. If your aim is multiplayer control, I would add this in.

Renegade Map and other similar one drops act as a great way to cycle our library as well as build towards ascend if we go that route. 1 mana draw is powerful.

Squee, the Immortal 3 mana draw! Essentially an extra card in our hand.

Wildfire Eternal multiplayer brawl version of the dwayne the rock johnson. Get in there kid.

As Foretold Lets make our draws free? As close as we are going to get to consecrated sphinx in brawl.

Whir of Invention fabricate.

Jaya Ballard get those lands out of here. Probably just going to +0 her, but hey, it gets there.

Hazoret's Undying Fury Now this is a hot piece of tail. Resolve this, drop your hand, draw 4? It's the tabasco our "mid-range good stuff- not trying to combo kill you" deck needs.
