Skirge Familiar Discussion

Surrak_and_Roll on The GitGud Frog

2 weeks ago

TheRedMage: Jarad is basically a last chance panic button. When building this deck I tried to stay away from a wincon like Exsanguinate because I personally don't enjoy winning off a single cast. My playgroup is pretty laid-back but filled with lots of power house decks so my goal here was to create a deck with lethal power but wouldn't be oppressive or unfun to play against. For a cEDH setting however I would definitely consider a more linear route like that.

yahelhotam: Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is part of my Necrotic Ooze combo(which will be explained in depth in my description, when/if I have time to finish it up). Really all is does is give me a way to get haste on my / Ooze and protects it with regeneration so long as I have the mana or something like Skirge Familiar on board or in grave and Dakmor Salvage in hand with the Frog on board.

Putrid Imp can combo with Dakmor Salvage which is just a great card with gitrog anyway

maybe swap Gruul Signet for Golgari Signet lol

Vinelasher Kudzu could be cut? just a big beater with no evasion

City of Solitude is another dosan

if you add putrid imp, maybe add a eldrazi titan so you can't mill out, maybe swap with the feldon's cane

Skirge Familiar is great! back up bloom and draws you card with the frog

Dunadain on Kokusho, all the life

1 month ago

What do you guys think of Sickening Dreams? I find somewhere along the storm road I have higher life than my opponents (frequently I ad-Naus down to ~4, then Kokusho twice, putting me at ~34 and my opponents at ~30, I also generally have WAY more life than my opponents after recasting Ad-Naus and laying Exsanginuate or tendrills, so if they don't win this could be a finisher but generally, if I recast Ad-Naus I have no difficulty winning) I could event throw in the janky Dark Sphere combo that would actually not be useless outside of the combo since it's a free card for storm, no life off of ad-Naus and my 2 buddies, Krark-Clan Ironworks and Skirge Familiar love it.

Great idea on Necrotic Ooze! I don't want to use him as a new win con but he's awesome as a second Sylvan Safekeeper,Skirge Familiar or any discard outlet to help the main win con work.

I had Skirge Familiar and Dakmor Salvage for a combo, but I just don't have as much fun with infinite combos. Also, this deck already pisses off my playgroup enough. Vigor, however, looks delightful. Thanks for the feedback!

Is there a reason you dont have the infinite of Skirge Familiar and Dakmor Salvage and any shuffle effects ( I use Dread, Vigor ) It gives infinite black mana and with Syphon Life you can kill everyone

Arnaud on Sidisi Ad Nauseum Combo

2 months ago


if i understand, the plan would be playing Sidisi exploiting herself and find Ad Nauseam. I would say turn 3-5 depending of what you have in hand.

Next turn, you need 5 mana to play Ad Nauseum and draw your deck : that means paying 27 life if you draw all...

Isn't it optimistic to think you still have 27 life by turn 4-6 without any defense ?

You could remove some cards to lower the cost of your combo :

  • you could keep only one of the two enchantments : Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond

  • but anyway, Exsanguinate and Skirge Familiar are enough to kill everybody : why do you want to add anything else ? Sidisi + Ad Nauseum + Lotus petal + Dark Ritual + these two cards and you win the game by paying only 7 life for Ad Nauseum.

It's quite classic, and vulnerable to counterspells, but it could work (but maybe not as fun as it would be expected from casual EDH)

The most important addition to this deck would be Necrotic Ooze. Acts as a Skirge Familiar if it's in the GY. If Devoted Druid, Quillspike, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord happen to be in the GY as well it's gg (all three can be placed in the GY by Buried Alive).
