Silas Renn, Seeker Adept Discussion

Devix on Planeswalker rule "Cold-Eyed Selkie"

1 day ago

I have a partner commander deck with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. It uses a lot of 2/2 creatures that give me cards when they deal player damage. Last night i played Cold-Eyed Selkie and attacked/damaged a planeswalker. We can't figure out if i still get to draw cards with the new planeswalker rules.

So, i want to draw the cards, can i attack planeswalkers?

I mean really I would cut Storm Crow but obviously if you're running that you don't care how good it is.

This doesn't really seem like a Future Sight deck, Triple blue and low to the ground with few real pure card advantage engines means I don't think you need it.

Skyshroud Claim seems like an odd choice. I understand the mana dorks but then you have this expensive ramp spell when your average cmc is low. If you feel you need more ramp, Farseek or Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Etherium Sculptor is odd. I don't think you have enough cards that care. You might get like 2 mana off this over the course of the game. I don't think that does enough.

Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow seems decent in this deck even with no other ninjas. Spawnwrithe seems too cute.

I feel you have a bigger issue though. Silas Renn, Seeker Adept doesn't really fit in this deck. If you just want the colors, you should cut the spellbombs and such and keep the bare best like the swords and the Strix. If you want the effect, you should run more payoffs, and artifacts you wanna sacrifice and stuff like Glissa, the Traitor to reward you. And as a contrast, you should slow your deck down a smidge to accommodate the grindy game plan.

The way it is now, sometimes you're gonna draw the wrong half of your deck and the artifacts are just going to be cards that do almost nothing when you could be playing cards that jell with your game plan of go wide tempo hate bears.

Finally Gavony Township. That is all.

BS-T on Orzhov into Esper?

For sure is a fun sounding route, you certainly don't need Oloro, just wondering if you'd gone there.

You can go quite Artifact-y with Triplets if it takes your fancy since they incidentally are - Mindslaver with Academy Ruins / (Buried Ruin+Crucible of Worlds) / Silas Renn, Seeker Adept is on-theme, Filigree Angel if you end up artifact heavy.

Don't forget the Liquimetal Coating for Memnarch too!

Akiri, Line-Slinger + almost anyone is a really strong combo. Having a vigilant, first striking creature which is rather easily a 5/3 (at least) by turn 3 makes for some very good beats. I personally enjoy combining her with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept to give the deck more of a long game plan and access to some of the best tutors in the format, although Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder can give the deck more speed in a 1v1 commander setting.
Edgar Markov is another extremely powerful aggro commander, and so is General Tazri, though in tazri's case you are confined strictly to playing allies, and she has a lightly more midrange aspect to her than any true aggro.
Purphoros, God of the Forge is another potent aggro commander, though purphoros can TECHNICALLY be called a combo commander by the same arguments that have always plagued burn decks; they don't attack to get your life down to 0, but instead employ spell shenanigans.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom seems like a decent commander for aggro, but she also is arguably more of a combo commander, going infinite with any number of cards, the most simple of them being Sword of Feast and Famine. (Works because sword untaps your lands when damage is dealt, and you activate najeela's ability in the clean-up step of combat.)

I've also always liked Omnath, Locus of Rage as an aggro commander, since all you need in that deck is omnath himself and a bunch of ramp cards; the deck is the epitome of consistency and simplicity in an aggro commander deck, though he is often far too slow off the ground to be competitively viable. You just have to take too many turns to set up a kill.

Island, Mountain, Swamp, and Plains seem like potentially reasonable additions.

Honor-Worn Shaku is pretty neat with your legend focus. Also Thalia's Lancers. Even Yomiji, Who Bars the Way might be worth consideration. Legendary artifact creatures are also potentially pretty high value, like Memnarch, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept,Bosh, Iron Golem, and Sharuum the Hegemon; you get to meet your artifact synergies and legend synergies all in one go.

I like how you're using the weenies from Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa alongside Silas Renn, Seeker Adept's ability!

A couple creatures that I could recommend are Arcbound Overseer for an extra fatty that buffs, Big Game Hunter for removal, Gonti, Lord of Luxury for stealing things, Ravos, Soultender for some recursion (though he might not be such a good idea because of the buff), and Alloy Myr for some fixing.

Keep in mind that artifact creatures count for Silas Renn, Seeker Adept's ability, so you could bring back some really powerful cards!

I'd recommend taking out these cards because their power is slightly too high Vendilion Clique (you can get better effects with sorceries), Thalia, Heretic Cathar (the other enchantments that do the same thing are much harder to remove), and Notion Thief (he seems good but I'd still drop him, you'd use his ability but you can get more draw off of other sources.)

Thats all for now! Good luck building!

If I have Tezzeret the Schemer's emblem, and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept on the battlefield, then choose Silas to become a 5/5 Artifact Creature, does Silas Renn still keep his abilities?
