Silas Renn, Seeker Adept Discussion
1 week ago
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!

@TearsInRain23 thanks for the advice. It's been a while, but I finally took up the deck. I played the Partner commanders Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and it worked quite well. But Red wasn't really in there, so I ditched the color and went to Merieke. It is not your general Merieke deck and should do well without her. Mind Over Matter is a great idea, thanks! The card is a bit expensive, but who knows in the future.

Awesome deck! Silas Renn, Seeker Adept might work well in the deck with all the artifact hate out there. Also, he allows you to reuse artifacts that have sacrifice effects. Expedition Map gets almost broken with him, allowing you to tutor for a specific land every turn.

Hey, so I recently brewed a stax deck with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Tymna the Weaver at commander. With basicly no decks online to start with I based it off a ton of more popular stax decks like blood pod and various Glissa, Augustin, Zur and Oloro stax/control builds. I think I have it in a pretty good place though time has been short for me lately so testing it has been difficult. I have been told artifact decks aren't in the best place at the moment but I believe the deck is actually pretty strong and would like to submit it for your opinions as to how viable it is and what tier it would belong in. Thanks!

Thank you chadsansing!
I have tried out Ravos, Soultender together with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and I kinda like your suggestion better as I don't have many artifacts for Silas to bring back. The counter that Ertai offers is very nice though as I often have many tokens to sacrifice. Being able to block multiple creatures does sound good with the tokens, so I might run Brave the Sands instead as I have a few copies of that one already, but Reconnaissance does seem like a good addition to let some tokens get through and not sacrificing a bunch to big blockers.
I do like those sorceries too. they would really allow me to ignore board wipes more.
My mana base does feel quite off considering how few white spells I do have, and how many double black symbols there are. I'll try to speed it up a bit and go for more basics, optionally running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth =)
Thanks again for the Feedback!

If you want to try something kind of unique I think you could try Tymna the Weaver and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. I could see it being good in a artifact storm type deck running Ad Nauseam. It probably won't be as good as zur but in the right meta it might work.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, thanks for taking a look!
I did consider partner commanders early on, and Ravos, Soultender did jump out at me, but the other partner options just didn't seem to fit the theme I wanted to run. As you noticed, I'm not running heavy artifact, so Silas Renn, Seeker Adept doesn't fit so well, and I don't want to switch a bunch of my creatures to artifact creatures at this point in time. Perhaps later I'll find some way to run some value with him in mind. Ravos would be worth a look in the main deck though. Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker would run ok, but he doesn't fit the theme, although having a scaling creature should always fit, right? I considered him, but then thought instead of having two commanders with rather high casting costs, I'd just go with the one in Oloro. I don't get to play in a lot of metas, so I don't see the hate others talk about.
The group hugs cards, like the card draw cards, aren't for a group-hug focus really, they are just there to get more card draw, and I couldn't afford a card like Consecrated Sphinx. Entomb might be an option I can consider now, since its coming down in price. I think the Sphinx is, too. I am running the pillowfort cards for a reason, just to give myself time to set up.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and help, and the upvote! I'm hoping I can make this guy go.
