Skullwinder Discussion

Riverain on This Deck Is Oozing Potential...

1 week ago

checkforloot While crafning Budget Damia Experiment I thought exactly in the same vain - it's cool to play with your opponents' decks! So I think you'll like my suggestions :)

  1. Abundance. Since you're using Green you really should use it's adavantages too :D Abundance is one of those cards that can provide with the whole ramp thing PLUS it prevents you from milling (which sometimes happens).

  2. Not sure about Lay of the Land. It seems to me that classical Cultivate, Urban Evolution, Farseek or Search for Tomorrow would be much more effective.

  3. Skullwinder is cheaper and more efficient on the battlefield than Eternal Witness plus it doesn't require double G in mana cost

  4. Extract from Darkness would be a great card to boost your Commander and get some cloning material

  5. I got the idea behind your deck but IMO it lacks removal a little bit. Simple Sultai Charm or Putrefy are great for this colors.

  6. Also think on Diluvian Primordial (and/or other Primordials), Palace Siege and Puppeteer Clique (this one is one of my favourite cards in the game)

Duelist's Heritage is great in this deck. You can pump your own creatures, while also choosing to give your opponents' creatures double strike if they aren't attacking you!

Crawlspace provides nice redundancy alongside Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist in limiting how many creatures can attack you each turn.

Skullwinder provides redundancy with Eternal Witness, and can be used as a bargaining chip with an opponent. Deathtouch makes it a nice chump blocker, too.

Berserk can be used to pump your opponents' creatures as they are attacking each other, AND remove it afterwards so the creature is no longer a threat to you.

Also, don't bother with fogs and damage negation. Redirect the damage! Use cards like Deflecting Palm away some burn, or use Comeuppance for a massive blowout.

If your opponents aren't attacking each other enough, you can safely give them some toys to do so. Crown of Doom and Assault Suit fill this niche very nicely.

Bane of Progress is a godsend for my deck. Skullwinder is nice too.

It's eternal witness with a budget!

A deck after my own heart! Five color theme jank is my favorite commander archetype.

Skullwinder could be worthwhile, as it duplicates the Eternal Witness Regrowth effect while also giving you a bit more social manipulation ability. I'd expect that this deck plays nearly as much in discussion and silver tongued deal making as it does in actually casting spells, so I would even consider replacing Eternal Witness with Skullwinder if you can't find another cut. It's even lighter on the color requirement.

To shamelessly self promote: Give my collection of single CMC jank decks a glance, especially Two Is Company. Seems like something you might enjoy.

Take out----------Replace

Zulaport Cutthroat---Blood Artist (zulaport is good but only works for you, Blood artist works for everyone)

Wood Elves---Dawntreader Elk Wood elves cant sac on its own

Viridian Emissary---Devoted Druid Viridian cant sac on its own

Rot Shambler---Merciless Executioner too slow, why not sac now and make everyone sac

Skullwinder---Fauna Shaman Skullwinder is more a political card used to make friends, no one wants to be Meren's friend so why not find all the cards in your deck you want and stock your graveyard

this is just a start but what I would keep in mind with this deck is can it benefit from sac or can it sac on its own? if not it probably should not be in this deck.

Kitnz on Chaos/Hug

I'm not sure running Yidris is worthwhile since you'd get most of what you're looking for with Maelstrom Wanderer. While Black may add some chaos things, it only adds group slug/pain, which you may consider a "group hug", but I can assure you that your opponents will not agree. Maelstrom works nicely since his high CMC is offset by all the extra mana/lands you should be giving out via the group hug elements.

Some suggestions: Humble Defector, Skullwinder, Chaos Warp, Rite of the Raging Storm, Rites of Flourishing.
