Dredge4life on Cheapskate Talrand (Competitive, Budget $75)

1 month ago

If the plan is to Polymorph, I would cut the Deadeye/Drake package, and just run Oracle/Leveler. I think the better plan is to always know that Talrand is lethal if Mass Polymorph resolves. Other than that, I would probably try and lower the curve a little. Cut some of the more expensive countermagic and run things like Winds of Change and Chain of Vapor. Dispel and Miscast should also be in here, and maybe even Foil for another free hard counter. It’s bad, but we don’t have access to Force, and losing three cards is better than losing the game.

Let’s cut some of the other expensive win cons like Sphinx-Bone Wand to run a few more mana rocks, like Coldsteel Heart and Sky Diamond. We only have one primary win condition now, but it’s much more effective and resilient, and we can keep our combat damage backup plan. If we really wanted to, we could play Proteus Staff to try and stack our deck in the event we draw both combo pieces/have had them killed, but I think that’s just super greedy and going to be a liability most of the time.

Amass the Components could be See Beyond. That way, we could keep the escape option if we accidentally draw our wincons, but we lower the cost by two. We could also shave Distant Melody and replace it with Chart a Course. It might be less cards total, but it’s half the price, and is always letting us see two cards. Careful Study could be in here too.

That’s all I can think of for now, but I really like this concept. Mostly, we just really need to bring down this curve. Best of luck!

Hey jeah ofc i can i will only suggest "cheap" 2 mana artifacts here you go: Coldsteel Heart Prismatic Lens Fire Diamond Sky Diamond

dont be afraid of the "enter the battlefield tapped" 2cmc rocks they are still good

i can really recommend Gilded Lotus it will generate the RRR you need for Niv

if you play Mystic Retrieval you dont need the eldrazi to shuffle your graveyard in your library:

draw your deck with your combo

get infinite mana with scepter and dramatic reversal(some fast mana really helps with this)

cast Echo of Eons

draw your deck again

cast Mystic Retrieval on your echo

cast Echo of Eons

repeat until everyone is dead

Recommended RAMP!

or higher mana ramp is not that great, but still, you're not going to play competitive EDH!

Rhadamanthus on Does this combo work?

1 month ago

Yes, that works. Here's how it breaks down step by step:

  • You cast Dramatic Reversal
  • In response, you activate 4 Sky Diamonds and use 3 of the mana to activate Meletis Charlatan targeting Dramatic Reversal. You still have in your mana pool
  • Meletis Charlatan's ability resolves, creating a copy of Dramatic Reversal on top of the stack
  • The copy of Dramatic Reversal resolves, untapping Meletis Charlatan and the Sky Diamonds
  • Instead of letting the original Dramatic Reversal resolve, respond by activating 4 Sky Diamonds and using 3 of the mana to activate Meletis Charlatan targeting Dramatic Reversal. You now have in your mana pool
  • Keep it rolling

One more thing: the rules of the game don't allow for "infinity". You have to choose a specific number of times to loop the combo. Just pick your favorite big number.

Meletis Charlatan + Dramatic Reversal + Sky Diamond + Sky Diamond + Sky Diamond + Sky Diamond + Stonecoil Serpent

Copy the Dramatic Reversal with Meletis Charlatan by paying for it with your three Sky Diamonds and tapping the other Sky Diamond to add one extra, then as a result they all untap so you can repeat the process and play Stonecoil Serpent as a infinity/infinity creature. How does this work if it even does work?

Hey, I like the name, nice budget deck.

What are you using infinite mana of Peregrine + Deadeye for? It appears you have removed the mana sinks and other combo pieces. Brago, King Eternal's no mana cost repeatable flicking can do a lot more than Deadeye and Brago is a flying creature. Bident of Thassa for half the price would do a lot more than Deadeye with your flying creatures.

It seems that Deadeye is most expensive price card in your deck and it's not doing much. You could cut Deadeye to clear some price to improve the manabase with some better budget lands such as Command Tower, Prairie Stream, Port Town and Ash Barrens. Consider Bident of Thassa and Mask of Memory? These have excellent budget repeatable draw effects with attacking flying creatures. These cards could replace Failure and Deadeye Navigator.

Consider Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel and Empyrean Eagle? All are good budget flying creatures. These could replace Devious Cover-Up, Sandstone Oracle and Dictate of Heliod.

Could cut Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond and add Azorius Signet/Mind Stone. These are better two drop mana rocks especially with Brago because they ETB untapped. Could cut Mask of Avacyn/Neurok Stealthsuit and add Swiftfoot Boots. The haste and hexproof of Boots especially haste is overall better than Mask/Stealthsuit.

Good luck with your deck.

I'm not great at which big creatures or big spells should be your top-end; I think that's really up to you, and you certainly don't need to make it an all-creatures deck to use Kinnan for great value!

What I would definitely recommend is adding additional non-land mana sources to take advantage of her ability. Here are some good options:

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds
Fyndhorn Elves
Birds of Paradise
Boreal Druid
Sylvan Caryatid
Bloom Tender
Thought Vessel
Commander's Sphere
Moss Diamond
Sky Diamond

Basalt Monolith is an honorable mention, in that it's a 1-card combo with Kinnan for infinite mana - but maybe this is OK for you, since it doesn't produce any colored mana so you can't just put your whole deck on the battlefield?

I hope that helps!

Hi, doddlm. I've looked at your Brudiclad decklist and it look solid overall, but I have a few suggestions on what can make it better. The only major thing that comes to mind is that I think you have too few big payoff cards (6) for Brudiclad to multiply and too many little token set-up cards (23). My opinion is that (little tokens)- to – (big tokens) – to – (copy effects) has to be roughly equivalent with each category having at last 10+ cards. As far as card choices go there are some that don't make enough in EDH and you might consider replacing them with something else.
