Shimmer Myr Discussion

kanokarob on And I'll Pay a Red | Only 5 Red Spells!

Vedalken Orrery wouldn't be bad, but Shimmer Myr covers the same effect, is more searchable, and slightly more recur-able.

There are a lot of effects that need to be redundant, like search or destroy artifacts, but flash isn't one of them. It's not necessary or even useful until you go infinite, at which point it's easy to recur or search.

I also recommend checking out Ichor Wellspring, Mind's Eye, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Dreamstone Hedron, a Sin Prodder for a win-win, an annoying card but not useless Urza's Blueprints, an Illuminated Folio combined with winding clock is good, Im unsure how much colorless mana you have access to but Endbringer, and Mycosynth Wellspring for land and card advantage.

As for other things that could help out Blinkmoth Urn for some sick manas. Arcbound Crusher can help with closing a game out by getting real swole creature. Shimmer Myr useful myr if you wanna move to towards myr tribal. A Workshop Assistant makes a great thing to pitch to your commanders negative. A Contagion Engine gives you your commanders negative ability every turn you pay for it. a Rings of Brighthearth can give you double effects on abilites bit pricy though.

Daquartzinator on I Don't Mean to Brago, But...

I am a competitive brago player too, and I wanted to share the cool combo to win I put in mine: After you get infinite mana and draw your deck with Strionic Resonator and something like Mana Vault and Wall of Omens, flash in Shimmer Myr, then play Mortarpod and continue to blink infinitely, dealing infinite damage with the mortarpod. If someone counters Mortarpod, it's no problem! Just flash in Prismatic Lens, then keep blinking to get some blue and white mana. Flash in Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir to flash in Sun Titan to get Mortarpod back!I was already running Teferi and Sun Titan, so the combo only takes up 2 slots in the deck, so I think it's a good idea to end the game quickly.

Cycada on Sydri is Still Just Meh

3 weeks ago

I know this list hasn't been updated in three months, but I wanted to comment because I've always been fond of Sydri, and I figure you might still run this deck.

Have you had issues with people scooping in response to fishbowl targetting them for lethal (out of spite)? Does your local group prevent instant-speed scooping to get rid of this type of play?

I've wanted to do this with Sydri ever since Aetherflux was previewed, but if some vindictive A-hole just decides to deny a life link proc, you're back to just trying to storm out while sitting at 5 life.

Lastly, a few suggestions:

Shimmer Myr - Allows you to do shenanigans with fishbowl trigger stacking. Cast a bunch of little artifacts after an AN, holding priority between, gives you a full storm count for each resolution.

Liquimetal Coating - Might be a little too janky for your deck, but it basically reads "Tap, U: Destroy target land" with Sydri on the field.

Scrap Trawler - Offers some recursion on eggs and other artifacts. Sac an egg, get a lotus petal back, for example.

Paradox Engine - All the rage these days for storm decks. It makes even more sense in a deck like this, in my opinion.

Firebones675 on Glissa, the Traitor - Pseudo Stax and Removal

1 month 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 month 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

1 month 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.
