Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest Discussion

Nethereon on Rats and their Patron: 1st Budget Build

4 days ago

Concise list of considerations:

-/+ Dump Mind Twist and add Torment of Hailfire HOLY CRAP, do I love this card. It gets around so many things plus it hits every opponent.

Let's talk about your mana base for a second...

Thirty two lands? Even for a very cavalier spell slinger deck, that is a very low amount to play. I play a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck on 36 and struggle some times to reach a critical mass of mana/spells. Don't fall into the trap of "I'll cut a land for this cheap spell; it'll be fine." Again, math and probability will not be on your side in the late game, not unless you're willing to invest in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers. An alternative might be to run Crypt of Agadeem but it's really no substitute for those lands.

Lastly, jam a Bojuka Bog or a Scavenger Grounds or both in there for graveyard hate, along with your choice of Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, and/or Field of Ruin because if you can't have your Crypt or Coffers, why should they?

Hope this helps, good luck!

Maybe even Soulfire Grand Master? Or possibly Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest?
Overall, though, a great twist on burn and jeskai and Lightning Angel is really original.

Ziembski on Saitama, ONE PUNCH!

You may take a look at my list Kumano Master Burnbushi for some inspiration, however it wasn't updated for sometime.

Or You may go for Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, which is called One Punch Man due to his prowess and doublestrike.

colton815 on Taigam, Ojutai Master trigger help

make sure you link all cards in your question. i have no idea what you mean by "voltron" him, or why you brought up Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, but you can cast an instant or sorcery at any point after Taigam, Ojutai Master has been declared as an attacker to have it gain rebound. that much should have been self explanatory by reading the card.

+1 Looks like a super fun take on Jeskai in commander! I wish I had the budget to build! Have you thought about Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and more Swords with Trinket Mage?

MoonTurtle7 on First deck help please

Phyrexian... Idk I guess infect may be something worth looking into. But honestly certain voltron commanders are really awesome for kitchen table.Uril, the Miststalker is fun and some fantastic colors for aura-based voltron. he can even get an enchantress draw engine that really gets things going, with vigilance trample and haste being very available to him.

Bruna, Light of Alabaster is pretty sweet, you can self-mill or group mill to your advantage. she has access to unblockable and/or Corrupted Conscience which is makes her a very sudden threat.

Sigarda, Host of Herons is by-far one of the better Voltron options due to the innate issue with most voltron decks is that group sacrifice and targeted sacrifice are the bane of your existence

Sram, Senior Edificer is a great one. White has some of the best auras and equipment support. He's cheap to play (and bring back) and is an engine on his own, drawing cards just for trying to do what you're gonna do anyway. Not to mention, your mana base is SUPER easy on your budget.

Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is one of the most explosive decks out there. having a pump and control base is extremely strong as long as you grab card draw to keep him going, he's quite the powerhouse. Just Distortion Strike + Titan's Strength and you have 18 unblockable damage launching at someone. That was 2 cards you played and 4 mana used. (if he's already on the field) There is a reason some people call him "One Punch Man"

Now if you want the obvious ones, here they are...

Rafiq of the Many is the grand daddy of Voltron as a strategy. Using his own ability to buff himself then having some really solid aura and artifact support. Though, he's got a reputation as a huge powerhouse making you the target almost always.

Narset, Enlightened Master You want to do all the things all the time once your commander hits the field? Narset is pretty much just swing to do what ever the fuck you want. The downside is that you will either use no other creatures, or almost none. She's downright broken, but has so many options open to her. So you could make her a "take so many turns until your opponents die of old age" or "lets make a weird artifact canon cause I can" to "lets play a storm deck" her power and threat level is entirely based on what you intend to do and how you build/imagine the deck.

Finally Zur the Enchanter more like "Zur who gives cancer". this guy most of the time is an enchantment based control deck. where your opponents do nothing while you tutor for any and everything you might need. This guy is super powerful and is banned in 1v1 for a lot of reasons. Just imagine a tutor on a stick to some of the most powerful enchantments. Ethereal Armor, Imprisoned in the Moon, Darksteel Mutation, Karmic Justice, Authority of the Consuls, Phyresis, Stasis, Land Tax Nevermore, Rest in Peace, Propaganda, Solemnity, even Necropotence. Any of these can just be grabbed if needed to answer any threat. while you either kill with commander dmg or stall into a combo. The deck is very rarely not gonna do what it intends to do.

These are some of the better voltron commanders. Personally if you want to use a commander from the Phyrexian blocks.

Urabrask the Hidden can do it.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is expensive but a for a reason.

Thrun, the Last Troll is from new phyrexia I'm pretty sure. very safe and regenerate saves auras from falling off of him, makes him a solid pick.

vbfabled on Interplanar Grudge Match?

Okay, less controversial post this week. This time just geeking out.

So the question here is: If you could have any 2 characters from throughout Magic's lore to enter into a 1 on 1 fight to the death, who would you choose? Why them? Who would win? How might the fight play out?

Personally, I'd like to see Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest fight Niv-Mizzet. Without the guild backing him up, it'd be a heck of a fight. We know Shu Yun can kill dragons instantly via pressure points, but he'd have to outsmart Mizzet to get close enough which would be a real challenge.

Fair enough, but wouldn't a commander like Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest make more sense then?
