Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Discussion

It looks like you might be lacking in ramp, even if you do have quite a few early plays. Signets are pretty good since you can recur them.

I think you might not get enough value out of the Courser. Azusa, Lost but Seeking might be helpful to recur your fetches once Muldrotha is down.

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is a really strong enabler and token maker.

Have you considered Triskelion as a wincon with Mikaeus?

Other than that it's looking pretty good!

FrigidOfficial on Inalla's House of Combo (EDH Infinite / Doomsday)

Hey Zidantur. Haven't gotten around to putting my thoughts down on paper for Dominaria yet, as I've been working heavily on a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant list and am still on the fence about throwing Doomsday into this build of Inalla to make it less midrange combo and more pure combo. Right now I'm looking towards the latter.

In any case, the following cards I think have potential are as follows:

  • Blink of an Eye is nothing special, but it is basically another copy of Into the Roil, and that lets us deal with things that Grixis can't; namely, enchantments.

  • Merfolk Trickster looks like a really good way to shut down some problematic combos, especially in my meta. Mike and Trike is popular in my playgroup, and preventing some of the aggro players from smashing me in the face doesn't hurt either. I think I am most excited for this as a toolbox card that has a lot of applications.

  • Naban, Dean of Iteration seems alright. As a legendary, he can't be copied, but he is an effective Panharmonicon for all our creatures at . Might be worth a spot.

  • Naru Meha, Master Wizard seems better in a Marchesa, the Black Rose deck or something similar. She can't combo off with Ghostly Flicker as Dualcaster Mage does, and the lord effect is negligible.

  • Final Parting is a very slow tutor (at sorcery speed and mana wise, being fairly expensive), but it can let us set up for a combo with one card. If your meta is slower, you could try this one out.

  • Helm of the Host seems like it could be broken wide open, but I'm not sure how to do it in this deck. Testing could yield some cool results, but for now it remains better in a deck headed by Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or someone similar.

  • Damping Sphere is a fantastic tech card. My meta has a lot of Timmy decks and some storm builds brewing with the reveal of Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain. Definitely slot this in if you're experiencing the same thing in your playgroup.

Other than the above cards, nothing really catches my eye.

Thank you, I will report my findings. The vessel may work well, I'll have to test it but it seems very good int the deck.


World Shaper -> Kiora, the Crashing Wave

Pathbreaker Ibex -> Deadeye Navigator

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant -> Memory Jar

Journey to Eternity  Flip -> Mystic Remora

Counterspell -> Spiketail Hatchling

Splinterfright -> Forgotten Creation

Voidmage Prodigy -> Burnished Hart

Forest -> Ash Barrens

I took out some of the cards I felt didn't add to much value to the deck, and put in your suggestions and a few other cards I have found in the meantime.

I would love to see Strength of Night in this deck. I had plans to include it in a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant zombie build, but I don't see myself getting there any time soon. I've got foil one if you don't have a copy. I'd love to see it in action. I have a foil Llanowar Dead for tradesies too.

Cards I'd cut:

Aberrant Researcher  Flip - There are better options to throw cards into your own graveyard. Examples include Sultai Ascendancy or Search for azcanta which will later let you Anticipate each turn.

Accursed Witch  Flip - Curses alienate one player and make them hate you. You don't want people to hate you in EDH. Also curses aren't very good to begin with.

Ashling, the Extinguisher - 4 mana with no evasion makes it very unlikely this critter will actually connect with players. I recommend cutting it for a better force-sacrifice effect like Innocent Blood.

Bloodbriar - It's selfish (it only gives itself +1/+1 counters) and it has zero evasion. Not worth it. I recommend Reyhan, Last of the Abzan in its stead; it has the same CMC and lets you move around +1/+1 counters all day.

Briarbridge Patrol - Not very good. Tireless Tracker is so much better. Replace the creature-searching with Evolutionary Leap or if you want to spend $75 Survival of the Fittest is amazing.

Centaur Rootcaster - Same reason as Ashling. Get rid of it. Wood Elves and Sakura-Tribe Elder instead.

Deadeye Plunderers - You only have two artifacts in the deck.

Demon of Wailing Agonies - Slow. Especially when your commander has CMC 6.

Gatekeeper of Malakir - BBB cost is really hard to get sometimes in BUG colors.

Glissa, the Traitor - Slow. She's neat and a good blocker but it doesn't matter because you only have two artifacts.

Greater Harvester - Same reason as the Gatekeeper. Run Smothering Abomination instead.

Labyrinth Guardian - This critter adds nothing to your strategy.

Magus of the Mirror - I've killed people with their own Magus. Also the same problem as the curses; it alienates one person. Also Tree of Perdition exists.

Marrow Chomper - Too slow.

Mortician Beetle - Selfish. Swap with Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper.

Patron of the Nezumi - Not enough rats to make it worth it. Effect is meh.

Phylactery Lich - Same reason as Gatekeeper. Also you only have two artifacts.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari - She does nothing on her own; she needs other things to do her work which isn't good.

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant - Just run Grave Titan instead.

Skullmulcher - Consider Soul of the Harvest instead. Both are good but you might need more gas than Skullmulcher can give you.

Utopia Mycon - Too slow.

I'll add more comments when I get more time to look over the next few categories.

Have you played around with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant or Whip of Erebos yet?

Have fun brewing!

chadsansing on Muldrotha cycle: HEAVY WIP WARNING

1 week ago

Maybe also Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Taigam, hand of Sidisi, and Whip of Erebos? I also like Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Lotleth Troll with this commander, Vessel of Nascency, and maybe even Elder Deep-Fiend, Distended Mindbender, and Decimator of the Provinces.

This is a great list for reference - thank you!

Happy brewing!

QuantumSkies and generalrenard: First of all, thanks a lot for the feedback! Now, to address the Life from the Loam discussion. I have some issues with how the deck might execute with that card in, because the deck already has a lot of ways to put things into the graveyard and even now I find myself putting my entire deck in the graveyard by turns 5-7, so I want to stay away from more cards that mill the deck anymore. Also, I want to keep the creature count high for cards like Splinterfright, Gnaw to the Bone and Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. The Gitrog Monster is a super huge card advantage engine in this deck all by itself, so even though I know how powerful Tireless Tracker can be in this deck, again, I can find myself with a lot of things to do with my mana after getting a Nyx Weaver or a Splinterfright going for a turn or two. Regarding Crucible of Worlds, I will certainly put it in the deck. The only reason it wasn't included in the first place was budget considerations, but I will try to acquire it. As for the Fetid Pools, I just think that I want my manabase as smooth as possible without breaking the bank, so after some testing, I found that I don't want taplands in the deck, other than the tri lands (necessary evil) and the Evolving Wilds for the obvious synergy.
