Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Discussion

DiverDown on Win con for UR mana ...

2 days ago

Keranos Blue Moon is an extremely viable deck and fulfills a weird niche in the cEDH metagame. It can be a combo player's worst nightmare, especially if they're in multiple colors and run Hermit Druid without any basic lands in the deck such as Sidisi, Brood Tyrant for example. However, mono-color decks like Teferi, Temporal Archmage and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard will be largely unaffected.

If you're interested, here is a deck you might find useful, and alternatively here is a video of the deck in action.

My advice is to keep your meta in mind, and try to get a feel for if it will perform well in your playgroup. I was going to make a deck built around this concept as well, but backed out because I realized that a lot of decks in my meta are resilient to the type of hate Keranos packs. Best of luck to you though! Hope this helps!

JMSaint5296, Great to hear from one who's had some time using Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. I'm still pretty early in the process so I'm still figuring out cards and abilities that could work well, hence the large maybeboard.

I found Embalmer's Tools recently and that is one I wasn't sure about, but using it on the end step is a good idea. I just thought of using a combo like playing Gravepurge on an endstep and then tapping Zombies to put all of those back into your graveyard to get more tokens. And Rot Farm Skeleton is on the side right now and I'm considering putting it in.

Are there some common issues with playing this style that I should look out for? I haven't gotten to playtest it much yet so I'm just not sure.

Mythos242 on Muldrotha - Ain't nobody got time for permanents

so i was able to try the deck out one night... it was great and fun to play. a lot of different triggers, a lot of synergies and (what I did not expect) pretty heavy with tokens... every matche I played it my board was full of different tokens. even if they got destroyed, i was able to recover pretty fast. Cardadvantage was wonderful. I did not need a single tutor, cause I was able to fill my graveyard very fast.

After the first try out I was looking for some cards that could maybe fit into the deck (see Maybeboard).

Cards I think that did not bring that big of an impact: Birthing Pod - As mentioned, tutoring wasnt needed and I had a lot of tokens but not the curve to get the most of it via Pod ||| Corpse Connoisseur - same reason as Pod ||| Sidisi, Undead Vizier - the impact was not as big as expected. I realized it would be more important to put cards from my library into the graveyard, rather than to tutor a card into my hand ||| Eternal Witness - I need more cards to put cards from the graveyard directly onto the battlefield ||| Venser, Shaper Savant - much to situational...also to be mentioned that muldrotha is not able to abuse him that much, cause on the one hand the ability doesnt work on your opponents turn and on the other hand you want to cast impactful creatures from your yard on your turn

Cards that were the MVPs: Greater Good - esp. with tokens even a mass removal is not that bad cause you were able to put alot of cards into your graveyard. Huge Value engine ||| Turntimber Sower + Avenger of Zendikar - I made a lot of tokens... and very strong ones as well. Just add The Mending of Dominaria and/or Sylvan Safekeeper and/or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant for even more value... it was insane.

Fila_Mindbender Ok, I'll sort through my lands again. I started doing a bit of tuning blue down but was a little worried about not drawing any. I guess that's what fetch lands are for, and the Solemn Simulacrum. That's one of the cards I'd like to get eventually.

Phenax, God of Deception is a cool one that I hadn't seen and could be pretty helpful. I dropped it to the maybe slot if I can find it sometime for a good price. The main reason I avoid cards that discard from your hand is that Sidisi, Brood Tyrant only gives you the effect for when a creature moves directly from the library. I've found that it's a bit more challenging mechanic to pull off and there don't seem to be many creatures that take advantage of it. Narcomoeba is one of the few that does but other than that it didn't seem like it would do much once it's on the battlefield.

Thanks for the suggestions.

So incase you want a more casual deck; I just posted this on somneone else deck post that was after feed back and thought it might help'

It's highly tuned with a write up but just under that cedh level. have a look at the winning play section on either deck.

Card Options

Some options you could consider if youre keeping it a little more casual are;

Composite Golem + Nim Deathmantle and old classic = Infinite coloured mana

or

Palinchron + a mana doublers = Infinite mana. Casting Palinchron for WUBRG, and bouncing for 4cmc means we need 5 lands + 1 Doubler to be on an infinite coloured mana loop.

if we use Zendikar Resurgent as our doubler you have a way to draw the entire deck and win.

Tooth and Nail can be used to find Palinchron + Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and get both into play which will create infinite mana.

One thing to consider are using more mana doublers, as they work like Jodah for the most part..if youre saving 5 or 6 even 7cmc by using Jodah then having 7 lands into play + a mana doubler is very similar.

You can also run a deadly play tooth and nail into Arena Rector + Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. Use sidisi to exploit rector, put Omniscience into play and then find Enter the Infinite.

There some really strong plays you can make Jodah really fire...If you want more feed back or critique let me know, or ask away. Jodah has become my favourite commander..just so many options

@Maizena it's the instant speed vs sorcery speed that makes vindicate worse, if both were instants then vindicate would be one of the best options available.

@DrkNinja what is your goal with this deck? is this for a more casual group? or are you after a stronger deck?

I added a primer with the deck, If you're after a stronger deck have a look at the common mistakes section. Essentially it's the idea that we want to making strong impactfful plays if we have Jodah active, not use to Jodah to set up for future value.

Sunbird's Invocation I mention as an example, Also if your wanting a more casual deck then have a look at

if you want zombie tribal i would suggest Thraximundar, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Varina, Lich Queen or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, as nekusar is honestly the worst possible zombie commander creature wise. even Sedris, the Traitor King and Lord of Tresserhorn are far better zombie generals.. and the former of the 2 is much more suited to a reanimation creature base anyways..

Hey man! Long time no talk to. I was hitting you up because I had a question. I remember you mentioning the fact for one of your Sidisi, Brood Tyrant decks, you were looking for a way to win through a Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void early on. If I remember correctly, you wanted to use Tooth and Nail to do so, I just don't remember the creatures you would tutor for. If I'm mistaken, then what was the combo you would try to use to win through early graveyard hate? I'm trying to improve my own deck.
