SilentPlague on Moonlit Nocturne

Any draw card spell will help quicken the pace and blue is full of it. Ponder is my favorite, but is not Modern or Standard legal. There is also Sleight of Hand, Prosperity, Brainstorm, Impulse, Ancestral Recall,... The list goes on for blue. Just double check what legality you are looking for.

multimedia on Kalamax Storm

Hey, nice budget version of Kalamax.

If you want to win with burn then I suggest Chandra's Ignition or the less expensive price Gravitic Punch. Either one of these cards can combo with Kalamax + a Fork to infinite burn all your opponents. Muddle the Mixture is a helpful budget card because can transmute for a 2 CMC Fork or it can be a pseudo Negate. Ignition or Punch could replace Genesis Ultimatum since there's many more nonpermanent cards here than permanents. Muddle could replace Ionize.

Narset's Reversal is excellent with Kalamax since you can use the copy that Kalamax makes of Reversal to target and bounce original Reversal back to your hand. This makes Reversal with Kalamax repeatable two mana to copy any instant or sorcery that's cast. Reversal could replace Fury Storm. Insidious Will is another budget Fork that can also be a counterspell or a Swat. Will could replace Sleight of Hand.

Kessig Wolf Run and Crop Rotation to tutor for it is a repeatable way to give Kalamax trample making him much more of a threat to do Commander damage. Run could replace x1 Mountain and Crop could replace Gut Shot. Shivan Reef is budget land to consider adding replacing 1x Mountain.

Good luck with your deck.

MtG-Crash on [PDH] Tatyova Combo

2 months ago

Big Update 21.5.2020: I included the Tidal Bore Combo together with Whispers of the Muse. That makes the 4 landdroppers combo pieces and takes away a lot of pressure from Ghostly Flicker. Plus it balances the power of the Transmute tutors, because searching for cmc2 now gives you Tidal Bore which comboes with a landdropper (plus Sanctuary).

Next I finally made the decision to cut Trinket Mage and Relic. I have cut Relic before but didnt update it here. It felt good and then I asked myself why I am still running Trinket Mage. It really took me some time of testing until I was sure this decision is correct.

Next thing is that I wanna make a list of cards that I have tried out and that got cut somehow. There is 2 lists: First a list of cards that are very interchangeable with cards in the deck. Its just a matter of what you expect from your playgroup. Both powerlevel wise as well as archetype wise. Second there is a list of cards Im definitely sure that do not belong in the deck even it might surprise some people :)


Tutors: Shoreline Ranger, Vedalken AEthermage, Trinket Mage + Relic of Progenitus

Protection: Broken Fall, Fortitude, Vines of Vastwood, Ranger's Guile, Condescend, Rethink, Miscalculation

General: Temporal Fissure, Lignify, Frantic Search, Sleight of Hand, Sakura-Tribe Elder

LIST OF CARDS THAT DO NOT BELONG IN THE DECK: Mulldrifter, Wormfang Newt, Tilling Treefolk, Groundskeeper

mahdik on Adeliz: Winds of Cinder

I playtested it, and to be quite honest there's not enough sorcery/instant. I had Magus of the Future on the table turn 5 and it took 4 turns of filling up my board of lands before spells that triggered my wizards appeared.

If you want my opinion, I strongly suggest getting your wizard count to about 12-15 instead of 20, and fill your deck with cheap cantrips like Thought Scour, Gitaxian Probe, Brainstorm, Sleight of Hand, Disrupt, Mental Note, Obsessive Search or even Peek. I think you catch my drift; cost 1, draw a card. That way you easily find your wizards and the stuff you need to trigger them.

Also, 40 lands for a otherwise pretty aggressive deck is WAY too much, I'd target 36, maybe even 35.

Searing Wind is just bad. Get that out of your deck XD

Otherwise, there's a long road ahead of you, but you're on the good way.

smilodex on Niv-Mizzet Parun Control cEDH

3 months ago

I mean i's your choice, but I dont know any 2or mroe-colored cEDH deck which is/should running as much basic lands as Niv does... It's really difficult to cast Niv Mizzest fast and because of that, I choosed to slow all my enemys down with: Blood Moon, Magus of the Moon, Back to Basics, Cursed Totem and Trinisphere, because those cards are fitting in no better deck...

New Cards I can recommend:

AlwaysSleepy on Zur Doomsday

I don't run that many non-blue stuff. Generally you don't want more than the Scrubland and I've not been in a game situation where Scrubland + Godless Shrine was specifically needed. Non- lands are weaker in this list because of High Tide.

Cursed Totem is great. Depending on your meta and what you want out of your list, you could cut Spell Pierce, Sleight of Hand, Snap, or Copy Artifact. I'd start there.

Recommendations:Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Thassa's Oracle, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Sleight of Hand, Drannith Magistrate, Force of Negation, and Demonic Consultation. These are a lot of slots though, so you don't have to put in all of them.
