eliakimras on Arcane wizardry upgrade

4 days ago

Your deck has some requirements, so you should only run nonbasic lands and mana rocks that can add somehow. Some cheap suggestions are: Reliquary Tower , Unclaimed Territory (I see you have a lot of wizards), Exotic Orchard (usually tap for all your colors), Darkwater Catacombs , Sunken Hollow , Shivan Reef , Underground River , Fetid Pools , Temple of Epiphany , Temple of Deceit instead of Crypt of the Eternals , Rupture Spire , Vivid Crag , Vivid Marsh , Temple of the False God and some basic lands. // Unstable Obelisk is really expensive for what it does - Reality Shift do the job cheaply. Archaeomancer is great for recursion.

Last_Laugh on Marchesa's Vampire

Fun take on Marchesa.

I do however think you need more ways to lose life like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Shivan Reef, and other painlands. Watery Grave and Steam Vents as well. I'd also make room for both Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence. Fellwar Stone is another good 2 cmc rock.

Run a few more boardwipes like Last One Standing, Cyclonic Rift, and Jokulhaups instead of so much targeted removal.

Also, get Chaos Warp in here. It's one of your only ways to interact with enchantments and by far the best. 100% needed.

Legion Loyalist isn't a vampire but I think first strike + trample for your team relatively out of nowhere seems good. That and he has haste and gets a +1+1 counter when he attacks so he sticks around. I'd also run Shared Animosity.

For cuts, I'd drop most of your targeted removal like Murder, Terminate, and Go for the Throat. I'd drop all your 3 cmc mana rocks for 2 drops as this helps with a T3 Marchesa. I'd also drop your 1 time draw spells like Sign in Blood and Tormenting Voice.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not tribal but it should still help. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Marchizzle my Nizzle

Hey, nice budget deck. You and your friend have good card sense. Here's a some budget upgrades to consider:

Have you heard of the Magic term wheel? A wheel is an effect that makes all players discard their hands and draw new cards. Wheels are very good with The Locust God because a single card can let you draw a lot cards which means you create a lot 1/1 Insects with one card. Skullclamp, Labman, Crawler and Tremors are win conditions with Insects and draw.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Cerebral Vortex
  • Cunning Strike
  • Hypothesizzle
  • Runeboggle
  • Turn / Burn
  • Refuse / Cooperate
  • Radical Idea
  • Spectral Searchlight
  • Traveler's Amulet
  • Beacon Bolt
  • Direct Current
  • Divination
  • Stitch in Time
  • Gelectrode
  • Fog Bank

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, to expand on what others have commented on about the manabase here's some budget playable lands to consider adding. All my suggestions will be $4 or less (most are $2 or less).

Other cards for the discard theme to consider adding:

Budget staples in Grixis colors to consider adding:

I offer more help. If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.


recell08 on Izzet a PyroMidrangeThing?

3 weeks ago

Bedlam Reveler is always in my mind for this list. I think I will add them instead of the Young Pyromancer and give them a try finally. You are right,Shivan Reef is just bad. This card is just in my list because I already owned two copies when creating this deck. They will be replaced by one more copy of Steam Vents and a Field of Ruin in the next few weeks.

But I don't get it with the Thing in the Ice  Flip and the Torpor Orb. I think Thing in the Ice  Flip entering the battlefield doesn't trigger an ability, so it comes with the counters on it. Am I wrong here?

I'm always happy about your help Savage, thank you!

Blasphemous Act, Austere Command, Cleansing Nova and Boros Charm for boardwipe and protection? Arcane Denial and Disdainful Stroke are really versatile. Sunforger is great in a deck with a lot of instants. Also, your land count is really low if you want to face 6 opponents. You should up your land count at least to 33. Temple of the False God is a trap in this deck, since you have a low land count. Battlefield Forge, Shivan Reef, Prairie Stream, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse are some lands you might include.

Hey, looks good, but in my opinion you're not taking enough advantage of low mana cost card draw with blue in Commander. Wheels are great, but you also want spells that can help to draw into or find wheels. There's a limit on the amount of high CMC creatures/spells you want to play because Locust God is your six drop you already have your high end card to play and it's in the Command Zone. Consider cutting a large amount of high CMC cards for low CMC draw/tutors?

Good luck with your deck.

There is a simple (and cheap money-wise) infinite combo: Niv-Mizzet, Parun/Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity/Ophidian Eye/Tandem Lookout + any draw. Draw, then deal 1 damage with Niv-Mizzet, then draw, then deal 1 damage, then draw, then... to kill all your opponents. // Maybe you should run more ways to guarantee you can cast your commander: Swiftwater Cliffs, Izzet Boilerworks, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Command Tower, Shivan Reef, Wandering Fumarole, Temple of Epiphany, Myriad Landscape, Lonely Sandbar, Forgotten Cave (they can uncounterably start the infinite combo with the cycling abitily), Izzet Signet, Gilded Lotus, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Cluestone, Commander's Sphere (they can also start the infinite combo right away).
