Lemky24 on Bant Flicker/Blink

Cards I would remove:

AEtherling Does not combo with much and is not a huge impact for the cost

Deputy of Detention you are not able to pull off anything crazy like Oblivion Ring Oblivion Ring has two seperate abilities. The first ability is an enters the battlefield ability and the second ability is a leaves the battlefield ability. Because of the way to stack works, one can target a permanent with the first ability (EtB trigger) but then force the second ability (LtB trigger) to occur (through sacrificing, bouncing, blinking, or exiling Oblivion Ring) before this first ability resolves. This means that the clause where the target will be returned by Oblivion Ring will occur, but at this point Oblivion Ring has not exiled anything. Then the EtB ability resolves, exiling a permanent under an Oblivion Ring that no longer exists

Fierce Empath I would rather have straight card draw or ramp as this guy only finds 6+ costs

Gigantoplasm I would limit the clones in the deck to only Clever Impersonator as most of the time it is going to be a Win-More card but would not actually swing the game into your favour if drawn alone

Mirror Image See above

Phyrexian Metamorph See above

Nezahal, Primal Tide He is a big bomb but doesnt fit the theme of the deck, most of the time I would rather a token maker or card draw.

Restoration Angel A 1 time use, I would rather a tutor to find Deadeye Navigator

Wall of Omens I would limit the amount of walls as they can not attack

Wall of Blossoms See above

Cards I would add:

Tutors: lets you find any missing piece as most of your best stuff is creature based

Eladamri's Call

Chord of Calling

Finale of Devastation

Green Sun's Zenith

Ramp:

Cultivate Ramp and thin your deck

Kodama's Reach Ramp and thin your deck

Wood Elves can abuse with blink

Farhaven Elf can abuse with blink

Peregrine Drake Infinite mana with most blink enabling cards like Deadeye Navigator

Recursion: a couple more options to return things from your graveyard

Sun Titan

Reveillark

Good value:

Elvish Visionary Card draw that can attack

Avenger of Zendikar Generate a lot of tokens plus with Farhaven Elf you can make them huge

Mulldrifter Card draw, plus you can evoke and save him with a blink effect.

Hornet Queen Generate a lot of flying deathtouch tokens

Prime Speaker Zegana Card draw

Sunblast Angel A reusable semi board wipe

Seedborn Muse Allows you to play out your hand and untap on their turns for counters or blink effects

Leyline of Anticipation Combos great with Seedborn Muse and lets you react to your opponents moves easier

Slithermuse Can lock down the game and force your opponents to draw the same mana rock for the rest of the game

Strangelove on Marchesa, the Black Rose

8 months ago

@your post

Hey! I built a budget Black Rose deck and, you're right, it is hard to win! The throne mechanic can be really restrictive. I think it's important to remember Marchesa wants to be aggro. Flayer of the Hatebound is the closest you can get to combo (with Marchesa, burning people for 9 at each end step). So make an enemy... try to kill someone ASAP. Dethrone other players only if you have a way to nuke your life, on-demand +1/+1 counters, or board that can 1-2-shot someone.

You need more creatures. At least 28.

If you want to win consistently, I'd play more stax pieces like Sadistic Hypnotist , Oona's Blackguard , Noxious Toad , etc. Maybe even Specter tribal with the likes of Sedraxis Specter . You really want to slow your opponents down and secure your board; like how Boros aggro needs Armageddon .

Alternatively, run a suite of 6+ 1-2 cmc counterspells like Negate , Narset's Reversal , etc so you can defend your tempo.

Purphoros, God of the Forge wins games.

I would consider cutting...

Phyrexian Arena ... I'd rather draw more. < Slithermuse , Toothy, Imaginary Friend , etc.

Dark Prophecy ... Good card, but you're not making a lot of tokens. BBB is too restrictive for it to be worth it. < Smothering Abomination .

Black Market ... This belongs in a control deck with Exsanguinate , etc... and there are better ways of paying Marchesa's commander tax. < Revel in Riches .

Ugin, the Ineffable / Meteor Golem ... You want to avoid 5+ cmc single-target-removal. You don't have time to answer threats at the end of your curve. < Nevermaker , Boompile , Nevinyrral's Disk .

By Force ... you don't need this and Vandalblast .

Altar of Dementia ... any other engine on a stick is better.

I might add...

Plaguecrafter ... all-star.

Insurrection / Mob Rule ... wins.

Shifting Shadow ... great engine in Marchesa.

Breath of Fury ... extra combats will win.

Puppeteer Clique ... fun theft.

Grave Titan ... you might just need some pricey 1-card houses.

Curse of Stalked Prey ... ignore the Throne.

Trophy Mage ... tutor Ashnod's Altar , etc

Sidisi, Undead Vizier ... tutor.

Fleshwrither ... maybe?

Whip of Erebos ... to combo with "Pay life:" ...or some other life gain.

Good luck!

Strangelove on Roon of the Hidden ETB

9 months ago

Thragtusk > Arborback Stomper

Add Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , Springbloom Druid and Risen Reef ... Sol Ring ... Definitely add at least 4 more ramp.

There's also Eidolon of Rhetoric and Arcane Laboratory since you like those. Knowledge Pool if you don't like your friends.

Angel of Serenity , like Fiend Hunter , can be used (with its first ability on the stack) with Roon to permanently exile any creature.

Nevermaker . Slithermuse . Reveillark . Evoke is so good with flicker... have to sacrifice? How about flicker it instead!

Soulherder is a must. There's also Panharmonicon , Deadeye Navigator , Mistmeadow Witch and Conjurer's Closet ... Ephemerate ? Pan and Deadeye are tier-1.

Roon is crying for Lightning Greaves /etc.

Try limiting your good-stuff, avoid stacks, and actually winning the game (quickly). Do you want to control and grind the game out? Are there certain combos you prefer? There are so many ETBs to choose from, the best thing you can do with flickering is try to spike. The value will always be there for you; So how are you going to deal 40-120 damage?

VexenX on elemental/land commander

1 year ago

It is great to see more Omnath, Locus of the Roil decks popping up! It looks like your deck list is mainly focused on the Tribal play-style, will a small splash of Landfall. It seems like the other couple ways I have seen this commander go is abusing ETBs and also doing some classical land recurring stuff. I for one already have an Omnath, Locus of Rage deck and a Lord Windgrace so I decided to leave the landfall stuff in the background and focus more on the ETB effects and Tribal.

Have you looked at Flamekin Harbinger , Mulldrifter , or Slithermuse ? All great Elementals! Please fill free to checkout my deck!

firerif on Vannifar Aristocrats

@F0rtepwns Thragtusk was already in there, Dual Nature seems a bit off plan considering the aristocrats nature of the deck and how that exiles tokens rather than making them die, and Slithermuse looks to fit in well. Thanks for the suggestion.

P.S. I have no idea how @ing someone is supposed to work on this site so... Yeah whatever.

hkhssweiss on Dr. Tishana, Voice(s) of Psychosis

No problem goldlion! You know your meta the best!

Yeah the meta I come from is super high paced and competitive so everything that comes in mind is all about efficiency, disruption, and protection.

In regards to your response, as I said earlier you know your meta the best, I personally don't like one time use effects for long term board state as I like the reuseability of an effect more than burst advantage unless the burst advantage gives an overwhelming board state. I see your reasoning behind most of the cards I selected to consider taking out. If you are worried about indestructible and hexproof creatures, luckily enough we do have answers for them. If they aren't hexproof here are a couple suggestions.

Now for the hexproof creatures, well we only have a couple ways to deal with them. First and foremost is mass bouncing like Evacuation , another way to deal with them is to use cards similar to Reins of Power to steal their creatures and than get rid of them. The alternative way is to run effects like Arcane Lighthouse to make them lose their hexproof so that you can target them with removals. Other than those the only way is countering them, but since you are only able to run three of them that is a low percentage.

For your shuffle effect since you are gaining a lot of mana, it's not really a budget option but the Eldrazi's are an option to prevent yourself from milling out or reusing cards again. I would recommend Kozilek, Butcher of Truth as he provides CA as well as shuffle effect.

Now for the next part... Prophet of Kruphix is broken, since you are able to play with it again. Use her to your heart's content. It is why I said it will be beautiful with Deadeye, you can use more effects that abuse ETB or LTB triggers. Cards like Mystic Snake will gain more value and be able to be reuseable as long you have open mana. Slithermuse also is fun this way in conjunction with your Psychosis Crawler . The worrying part on your curve also wouldn't matter as 6 CMC for a card that does give you advantage shouldn't matter as also you have access to flash from two sources and you also play in a slower meta.

Lastly, Pemmin's Aura is an absolute house imo. Giving it protection as well as pump and tap/untap abilities all on one cards is pretty bonkers. The thing I love about it the most is that it gives your creature shroud on demand, and if your opponents have multiple kill spells you can also in response activate it as many times to protect itself.

Hope that helps buddy!

carlmoores on Aminatou Blink

1 year ago

How is Slithermuse not a more popular card in Aminatou decks? Only discovered it today and Wow...just Wow.

Anyway, I've been playing Amin for months now and the deck is finally to the point of being able to hold it's own against 75% level decks. Some friendly advice

1: You need to be playing Lavinia of the Tenth and Stonehorn Dignitary

2: You need to drop your average CMC by at least .75. Mine was too slow at 3.81, which is significantly lower than your current build. Once I lost some of the vanity cards (side-eyes Yennet) and played lower cost spells it was much easier to control the board using ETB triggers from blinks. When cutting cards ask yourself "is it removal? Is it card draw? Is it ramp? Does blinking it do anything?" if the answer is no, cut it.

3: You need a win condition. Maybe I'm missing something but I don't quite see what yours is other than maybe swinging with flying beaters.
