Silent-Blade Oni Discussion

JonMH on Lazav v2.0

I have a very similar Lazav commander deck, and its one of my absolute favorites. There are very few things I enjoy more in magic than turning people's down decks against them.

Some other cards that you might have fun with:

Raiders' Wake - Make all those discard cards deal damage

Fleet Swallower - Traumatize on a creature

Memory Plunder - Steal spells from graveyards

Mindleech Mass and Silent-Blade Oni - Steal cards from hands

Here's something you can try out: ninjas :)

The best fairies have etb abilities (IE Mistbind Clique, Spellstutter Sprite, Sower of Temptation etc), and pretty much all of them have flying, so you can attack opponents with no flyers, and the ones that get through can be bounced to get ninjas through.

Best one is Silent-Blade Oni, but Ninja of the Deep Hours, Throat Slitter and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are pretty cool.

Bxbx on Advice for Sen Triplets EDH?

Hi, fellow sen triplets player!

Here are some suggestions for your deck:

  • Sen Triplets draw so much hate that I'd advise you to put Winding Canyons in. This way you can flash the triplets in at the end of your opponents turn, so they don't have to survive one whole turn cause they almost never do

  • I do not play Mycosynth Lattice and Celestial Dawn because they take up two card slots. Instead I built my landbase in a way that it can produce two or three mana of any color more or less reliably in the lategame (with City of Brass, Rupture Spire, etc.)

  • Baleful Strix and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV are good creatures for esper. The arbiter reduces Sen Triplets cost by 2

  • I made the experience that Telepathy draws a lot of hate, too. People hate it to play with their hands revealed for the whole time. It creates an unpleasant game experience and often makes you a target. Instead I'd recommend Glasses of Urza. It does not make all of your opponents angry at you and additionaly it can be searched with Trinket Mage which makes your deck more consistent. And it can be searched with Tezzeret the Seeker whom you should add as well

  • my own deck is more creature focused and without combos. I really like cards like Silent-Blade Oni or Doomsday Specter there, but you probably do not run enough creatures to warrant their inclusion

  • if you're willing to go the more expensive route you should add Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor. Enlightened Tutor and Diabolic Tutor could leave for them

That's all for now. Let me know what you think!

MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Free Value Cards

Epidilius, I can see the confusion about Oath of Druids, but because of its wording, it doesn't "let all of your opponents get value too", so it's okay.

Oracle's Vault is on the list for its second ability, which classifies as being able to get free value without additional mana input.

The point behind containing only permanents is that these cards are powerful because you can continue to play your deck after playing these cards and they accrue value for you without requiring you to invest card resources or mana resources. You can continue with your gameplan as normal, but these cards just give you free value while you are. Non-permanents always do something and then go away, so while they can give you value, they don't give you free value, which is incredibly powerful.

Silent-Blade Oni is a fantastic card for this! I should also look at cards that can cast spells from opponent's hands, since in a multiplayer game, it's incredibly rare for all your opponents to be hellbent.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor requires you to then pay the mana cost of the card you get, which means that you have to choose between the value or continuing to pay the mana for the main gameplan.

Eternal Dominion does fit quite nicely with the list! I should take a look at the epic spells and see how many of them fit in the list!

What about Silent-Blade Oni? I'm pretty sure there's a creature that casts Acquire when it deals combat damage to a player.

Finally, Eternal Dominion? Not a permanent, but once cast it happens every turn until the end of the game.

I think these are the demons I will pull out Bloodgift Demon, Eater of Hope, Overseer of the Damned, Silent-Blade Oni, Malfegor, Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked. All of these demons are either low impact or highly situational.

Neat stuff. Have you considered Myriad? Broodbirth Viper, Banshee of the Dread Choir, Blade of Selves?

Also maybe look into some cards with on-hit effects other than draw and discard. Throat Slitter, Ashling, the Extinguisher, Silent-Blade Oni and more. I'm currently brainstorming a Vela the Night-Clad edh based on similar concepts. Who btw may fit here.

One last bit: the Shadow, Ninjutsu and Cipher mechanics may have something to offer.
