Sharuum the Hegemon Discussion

BMHKain on BMH: Introspected, & Introverted; The UnExperience

Alright. Here's the situation. I seriously doubt Chromium, the Mutable would work good as an ESPER CMDR here. I've a lot of things to add at some point, but I'm unsure what CMDR to replace Chromium 2.0 though:

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic : We're playing powerful cards that best fit my Vorthos Deck based on "BMH: The UnExperience", if you want to poke fun at that name, not do something Orzhov () can do better w/o .

Zur the Enchanter : Don't get me wrong, he's awesome, but... just look at the number Enchantments I have already; not even enough to warrant this.

Sen Triplets : I seriously dunno how the Powerpuff Girls as Esperites would work as it just simply counts as only one opponent as a target each turn. Skip.

Sharuum the Hegemon : Remember when Breya, Etherium Shaper outclasses this creature after Commander 2016? This Sphinx is worse here as this is not an artifact manipulation deck.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius : If she were a Legendary Artifact Creature, she would be WAY better than the aforementioned Sphinx that's more incorrect than The Riddler. Even so, this is a skip for the same reasons as the Hegemon herself.

Merieke Ri Berit : Err... Why would I use this, when I plan to update this deck with one Perplexing Chimera that, when one casts something good, I trade control over such a much needed creature anyway, while Eldrazi Displacer can easily give me back my Chimera. Now I just want to protect my Displacer though....

Aminatou, the Fateshifter : Awesome Walker, unsure if she'll do any good here; though this is part Value Town, so how should I know? Opinions?

Ertai, the Corrupted : The original Ertai, Wizard Adept is far & away, the better creature, & the latter is better off as a part of the 99 (98 is Partners based...) anyway.

Varina, Lich Queen : If I wanted to make a Zombie Tribal Deck, I'd use either her, or even Thraximundar ; & exclude anything involving "Gisa the Mad"; she's a (A kitten died as I said the B word, & is censored by #CATMEGEDDON), & clearly wants to kill both Stitcher Geralf , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , & everything they both worked on as "Impurities" to the undead. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , & Teyo Verada both say hi, you Mad, Necromancing, Excuse for a MTG Character. I hope you get executed by the Inquisitors of Innistrad; by Guillotine! & if anyone tries to use Ghoulcaller Gisa, even Gisa & Geralf (See? No Links because Gisa the Mad doesn't deserve this crap! :D) for Zombie Tribal decks in the future, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born & Rooftop Storm both say the exact thing Anne Robinson will say to everyone as a former game show host: (Tips head) "You suck!" (Smirks like an asshole).

/endrant, & all further use of Gisa abusing Geralf in all errata, & decks with said errata; Geralf is wiser, & more reserved anyway. I can relate to Geralf more than that Kaya-Hating Brother Killer not deserving of life anyway. :D


Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign : Finally... something. While I do have some even costs here & there, at least this seems decent as I have more odd costs. I wonder...

Dakkon Blackblade : Are you an idiot!? Blackblade Reforged is basically the same effect, just a Legendary Artifact - Equipment. Skip for damn sure! &, Gideon Jura is using it now, after he was dubbed a crap leader of the Gatewatch by Nicol Bolas, & lost his Sural & Self-Determination! I bet he now has in his blood!

Dromar, the Banisher : Why the bloody hell would anyone run Monocolors still?!

Chromium : What the hell is Rampage? How does this work, & why am I taxed to keep this MechaGodzilla wannabe incarnation of one from Core 19 that's far better?!

Halfdane & Lady Evangela : Legends sucked as a whole when it came to their Legendary Creatures. These two are no exception.

(Any Partner CMDR Duos that have a combined Identity of ): (Rips one of them to show they suck.)

Yep, that's my thoughts of all the other Esper Legends. If you have something to say that could be used in this situation in place of Chromium, the Mutable , your opinions for a better substitute is very much welcome. It's just I'm running a COMPLETELY differing deck than what Esper normally runs.

Opinions are open for debate now. Oh, & about Geralf, here's his best quote as a warning to priests (Including Gisa the Mad as a Ghoulcaller.) as he zaps hell on Innistrad:

"Let those idiot priests tremble! A new era in unlife begins here and now. Oglor, raise the lightning vane!"

You have to admit, this is Geralf at his most badass. I don't even give a crud about "Olgor" anyway. PX

Glad to have been of some sort of help! I can assure you, Goblin Welder , Feldon of the Third Path and Daretti, Scrap Savant are beyond awesome! Your graveyard becomes even more a toolbox, to abuse especially with ETBs.

Speaking of ETBs, Combustible Gearhulk is really solid: card draw in red and a 6/6 first strike for 6. Nice.

Skullclamp is an all star, especially if you have a lot of things that produce thopters or myrs, (even the ones from Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer go well with it).

Mass recursion like Scrap Mastery is fun, that's why I run it along Open the Vaults and Roar of Reclamation ... But even more fun if it also makes your opponents sacrifice their artifacts to put nothing on the field. Not to mention,it also gets rid of things like Darksteel Colossus or Colossus of Akros .

I'd also point out Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain , and Vedalken Archmage for endless value.

Next things to buy for me, when I'll have money to spare, will be Glimmervoid , Academy Ruins and those foil Goblin Welder and Sharuum the Hegemon !

Thank you, K1ngMars! I'm glad to hear you liked my deck.

In the back of my head, I've been thinking about trying to adapt this deck to put Breya, Etherium Shaper in command for quite some time. The need to rebuild the mana base is the primary roadblock right now, but I can't deny that Breya holds quite a bit of appeal, both as a combo toolbox and as an extension to the color identity. I'm itching to test out cards like Pyrite Spellbomb and Goblin Welder and see how well they perform.

I also checked out your deck (it's very nice!) and it reminded me of a few other power cards I could play using Breya, such as Combustible Gearhulk , Scrap Mastery , and Skullclamp . Thank you!

As for that particular art for Sharuum the Hegemon , I love it. It's gorgeous and I want one.

This seems to be a super fun deck! I've always wanted to build a deck like this, with artifact synergies and combos, but maybe without tutors. Nonetheless, the first commander deck I've ever bought and started deck building with was Breya, Etherium Shaper 's Invent Superiority precon.

The only thing that stopped me from going artifact combo without tutors has been my playgroup. They're friends, before opponents, and I didn't want to build a solitaire deck that made them bored. I really admire your deck, and I must say, if you want to spice things up and continue on the artifact combo route, the best thing you can do is try to build with Breya, Etherium Shaper at the helm. You'll be able to keep all the Sharuum the Hegemon combos, while adding some more interesting ones.

By the way, if you wanna see my combo-free, artifact goodstuff deck, feel free.

Also... I have a thing for first edition foil cards and more than that, alternative art cards. What do you think of the From the Vault: Legends printing of Sharuum the Hegemon ?

Sharuum the Hegemon gains lifelink to support a more midrange/battlecruiser build of sharuum (like what I enjoy running). I don't really think it's worth trying to make sharuum a "better" combo commander. Breya already has that throne and trying to 1-up competitive commanders will just make for a degenerate meta.

Out of curiosity, why Sen Triplets and not something that interacts with artifacts like Sydri, Galvanic Genius or Sharuum the Hegemon ?

Here's how it works:

Start with Disciple of the Vault and Sharuum the Hegemon out. Cast either Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph , and have it enter as a copy of Sharuum. Legendary rule kicks in, you have to put one in the graveyard. Then, after it's in the graveyard, fake-Sharuum's etb triggered ability goes on the stack, allowing you to return an artifact from your graveyard to the battlefield. Choose the fake-Sharuum that just hit the yard, and it re-enters, allowing the loop. The Disciple of the Vault is there to convert the constant leaves-the-battlefield into life loss. There are a couple of variations and substitutions possible, but this is the basic version.

I'd like to try Halls of Mist and Silent Arbiter in a Turbofog-ish control deck and annoy the token spammers.

If you're on board with infinite combos, Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph cause total life loss with Disciple of the Vault and Sharuum the Hegemon . Nice trick with the Lich's Mastery and Immortal Coil !
