Shimmer Myr Discussion

Firebones675 on Glissa, the Traitor - Pseudo Stax and Removal

1 week ago

Thornbite Staff allows you to mow down creatures due to glissa's deathtouch.

Entomb, Buried Alive, Codex Shredder and cards with dredge like Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Life from the Loam & Dakmor Salvage are great for decks that have graveyard shenanigans.

Grinning Totem, Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens, and Shimmer Myr are all cards I also enjoy using in my glissa deck.

Daquartzinator on Brago Lockdown

1 week ago

cobblepott, A friend who is good at commander (I am not, at least deckbuilding) recommended your Brago list to me. It looks AMAZING! I already had a Brago deck and I had a few questions about why and why not you were running certain cards. Btw: I proxy cards (don't hate me), so these questions are about making the deck the best, not staying on-budget.

First off, do I need to run Aven Mindcensor, Augury Owl, Mentor of the Meek, Rings of Brighthearth, Memory Jar, Helm of Obedience, Aether Spellbomb, Chain of Vapor, Mystical Tutor, and Narset Transcendent? Why are these cards in the deck, and are they good candidates to be replaced?

You are currently running Man-o'-War, but i think Reflector Mage is strictly better, apart from cost.

Then there are a lot cards I run that you don't, and I wanted to know why:Jace, the Mind Sculptor (I don't proxy that, I have a real one), Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Dovin Baan - the shield is nice, most of the time he just draws you 2 extra cards/turn, and i you can't find a stax thing you can ultimate. Reality Acid and the Rishidans, Wall of Omens, Mulldrifter, Cloudblazer, Deadeye Navigator, Sunblast Angel - my own discovery!, Sun Titan, Palinchron and Peregrine Drake, Path to Exile, Prismatic Lens and Thought Vessel - 2 more 2 mana mana rocks, aand... Panharmonicon(sorry that was a lot.)

Lastly, I want a wincon - an artifact that deals damage to people that i can blink infinitely with Strionic Resonator after drawing my deck and flash out with Shimmer Myr. My candidates are:Mortarpod - just a cheap card I have, can recur with Sun Titan.Walking Ballista - Great value card, pings, but can't be blinked.Meteorite - this card looks stupid, but it's a mana rock. Can't be recurred by Sun Titan.

Pleeaze tell me what you think!-Daquartzinator

Firebones675 on Glissa, the Traitor Duel Commander

2 weeks ago

Entomb, Buried Alive, Codex Shredder and cards with dredge like Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Life from the Loam& Dakmor Salvage are great for decks that have graveyard shenanigans.

In my glissa deck I run and have have had success with Grinning Totem, Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens, Shimmer Myr, and Vedalken Orrery.

You might not have enough mana rocks to do this but i once had a game where on each opponents turn, i got back a mindslaver, cast it with flash, and activated during each of my opponents turns with a combination of those cards.

cara, eu trocaria o Shimmer Myr pelo Vedalken Orrery ou pela Leyline of Anticipation, porque so bem menos vulnerveis e tb tiraria o Loxodon Warhammer e colocaria algo que contribua mais com a temtica do deck, tipo Time Sieve, que deve entrar de qualquer jeito, mas o restante t jia! Parabns.

Reflecting Pool will add colorless due to colorless being a type of mana. Command Tower on the other hand will not produce any mana. As for the absence mana rocks, I figure this deck is just trying to steer well clear of any well defined lines of play! Rings of Brighthearth is a good one though.

Anyway, some weird suggestions to keep with the experimental theme of the deck:

Pyxis of Pandemonium, Eternal Scourge, Serum Powder, Elsewhere Flask, Perpetual Timepiece, Sculpting Steel, Ward of Bones, Thespian's Stage, Mirrorworks and Shimmer Myr. :D

Camel-Senpai on Thopter Arest

Ancient Tomb and Eye of Ugin are pretty big for colorless decks. Void Winnower provides a safety measure against the majority of board wipes in the game. Smokestack is a pretty fun control method for colorless decks, given that you can find a way to generate tokens. Orochi Hatchery is a surprisingly funny way to do this, but you may want to consider something less mana heavy if you want to go that route. Mycosynth Lattice combos with Unwinding Clock by letting you untap all of your lands on other peoples' turns. With Shimmer Myr this gets more than a bit frustrating for your opponents. I'm actually somewhat surprised by the lack of Steel Hellkite in this deck, seeing as you can perform a targeted board wipe on tokens and smaller creatures for a small mana cost.

Flagellum on Goddess of Etherium (Budget)

1 month ago

AER will be introducing Trophy Mage which for me will be tested. Fetches up Ashnod's Altar, Chromatic Lantern, Sculpting Steel, and Shimmer Myr. Kind of limited (I don't run all the cards mentioned) but it does leave a body and fetches a main combo piece.

Also Spire of Industry will be a thing :p

Bolsheviktory on Zur Ad Nauseam Storm

Sure, the two wincons are Laboratory Maniac and Aetherflux Reservoir, so let's discuss the reservoir.

With a T1 god hand that gets you all the cards into your hand you just play free artifacts into Helm of Awakening and Etherium Sculptor. Now you can cast all 2 and lower CMC artifacts for free. Play Aetherflux Reservoir, all free artifacts, net positive spells such as Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual, and if needed bounce 2 artifacts to replay them with Chain of Vapor saccing your land.

I cover this in the Tendrils vs Aetherflux accordion panel, but the T1 god hand kill requires a total of 23 storm with trigger stacking to win, since you will start at -118 life after the Ad Nauseam.

In a game where you attack with Zur to get Necropotence you have 4+ mana if you didn't cast anything, and you simply tutor for Shimmer Myr on end step and follow the above steps for shenanigans. This requires 15 or fewer spells cast (almost always), nets you rocks/life if you get stopped somehow, happens at instant speed and usually goes mana positive unlike Tendrils. Chain of Vapor is a huge enabler too, you sac all your lands to bounce cheaps rocks for added storm count.
