BMHKain on 4 simple favors & I'll ...

4 days ago

(Why I've yet to upload a vid about my thoughts on Boros, much less stuff outside of Fighting Games I dunno...)

landofMordor, I myself am surprised at how much I've used Scryfall Myself. Xp It's strictly better than Gatherer if I am allowed a one-word review. XD

Anyways, now to get to the biz...

There is one other reason for Concerted Effort, but I might have to search Scryfall again for such things in ... That one other card is Odric, Lunarch Marshal. I'd also throw in Ward of Bones, but this already has many creatures as it is... Plus, Flickering Effects + Solemn Simulacrum = More lands than your opponent, I already have more rocks than most, thus the Strikeout for Ward of Bones. Might be good in a Superfriends deck though; it was made before Shards of Alara by one Core Set (I think?) & one part of a block.

I don't need either one right now; I already have Tutors not many would think exist. ;)

Ironically, Sneak Attack is thrown to promote a decent amount of Fat where nothing else can. Gisela & Bruna #2 for instance. Also, maybe I'll have to get more flicker effects besides Eldrazi Displacer to be safe...

Already knew that. XD. I think the reason why such a WIP deck is 96% Casual is that for Eldrazi, 7 cost is the Golden Number...

Ironic; since I have Aegis of the Gods in. Is it worth cutting as well?

Okay, maybe not (RW Toolbox) was the right term. But I pretty much have the Motivation/Ambition now to prove RW's Competitive nature anyway. This is my last chance, you should know.

I never wanted this to be Aggro. I didn't even want this to be a Schmogepoge of garbage; I just wanted to go as far as I can to a Tier I know I can't reach, but I'm betraying Yoda's most famous quote on this regard, & doing it in some way.

We'll finish this in the actual deck list, which is currently getting cut one by one.

imSandstorm on The coming storm

Sorry, I got busy with a lot of stuff after my vacation ended! Liking the new changes. I actually have been experimenting a bit with Etali, Primal Storm and have found some fun interactions, though I haven't completed my deck because I find it bothersome to keep bouncing some of the cards from decks I play way more often. So one thing that's really fun is Strionic Resonator with any mana rock that taps for two, let's say Sol Ring and Paradox Engine. Since Strionic Resonator's copy of Etali's ability is an exact copy (triggered ability and the ruling says the source of the copy is the same as the original), you can keep tapping the Sol Ring and Strionic Resonator to copy the copy until you can't cast spells off Etali's ability anymore (all players exiling a land).

I've been liking Sensei's Divining Top in the deck for controlling what I exile off the ability and being able to put it on top for a free cast and draw what I want if it's a land or something I want to cast later like a boardwipe.

Finally, I've been putting big fat Eldrazis on the list, along with Blightsteel Colossus with ways to cheat them out other than Etali's ability (Quicksilver Amulet, Planar Bridge, Sneak Attack) along with Warstorm Surge to blast people for tons of damage. Sarkhan's Unsealing is a sick include, I think I'll try it out! Other than that, I've had a lot of success with the haste enablers for all creatures in monored like Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros, Anger, and Urabrask the Hidden. This is all I've thought of in regards to the commander, hope some of the suggestions help!!

TheBoraxKid on Jhoira of the Ghitu

Evacuation to pop off at instant speed right before your creatures come out of suspension might be loony.

Sneak Attack would be good if you do intend to steer away from Eldrazi.

I think more counterspells to assure your threats don't get interrupted is a must especially since this deck requires so much set up to get going. On that note, I'd then bring in Snapcaster Mage and possibly even Torrential Gearhulk since your sorceries have such high value. You might also consider Archaeomancer depending on how highly you value your instants/sorceries.

Counterspells I would recommend would be of course Force of Will, Counterspell, and I think you could even afford a Cryptic Command.

Chancellor of the Spires is a fun blue fatty, so is Diluvian Primordial, Sphinx Ambassador and as vanilla as Inkwell Leviathan might look, it is super hard to deal with. You could also consider the new card Arcane Artisan to cheat out fatties if Jhoira is uncastable. Also, Timebender could be nice here too.

In summary, I think the deck is very strong but could use some more support in the counterspell department, with a little spell recursion (Snapcaster, Torrential, etc). I would also consider throwing in a bit more mana rock ramp to assure you have enough mana if Jhoira is uncastable. Consider Mind Stone, Thought Vessel andCoalition Relic as the three more important ones, and possibly even Hedron Archive or Commander's Sphere.

I would also say think hard on Obliterate, Jokulhaups, and Decree of Annihilation. I personally think they are great win conditions, but can lead to a lot of the same lines of play which can make games repetitive. I definitely wouldn't say cut them all together because they're a valid strategy to pretty much every Jhoira deck, but play around with the numbers, maybe try out 2 or maybe just one so you're not relying too heavily on them. Just find what feels right.

Advisorofdark on The Undying Black Rose

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Bloodflow Connoisseur are great sac outlets and Grimgrin can even destroy a creature when it attacks.

With all the high cost creatures in your deck, Sneak Attack will really help in cheating them out into play and even though you must sac the creature at the end of the turn, Marchesa can bring them back anyway.

Profet93 on Xenagos all out to kill

Bocajtioneb I love your deck, here are some suggestions.

Rishkar's Expertise/Garruk, Primal Hunter. Super useful card draw, especially rishkar.

Traverse the Outlands - RAMP

Malignus - DEATH TO ONE PERSON

Pathbreaker Ibex/Rancor - Provides trample

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - MANA (and some card draw)

Siege Behemoth - Fav card in my xenagos deck

Sneak Attack - 1 red for vorinclex, double ur mana, cast shit, sneak in more dudes, swing

I'd like to hear your thoughts on my deck Xenabro if you could spare a moment.

Sneak Attack reasonable cost and pretty cheap to cheat dragons from hand, i never tried because i don't like so much the idea of losing them, but it is something that caught my attention.

God-Pharaoh's Gift Don't like the cost, but the ability is interesting, i didn't even knew this card, thanks for showing, but i think the problem is losing it for the discard hand mechanics or not having the mana for casting it once it is exiled.

Etali, Primal Storm Pretty good, but not a dragon lol, i'm going to get all the non dragons out as soon as they get better dragons.

Warp World Know the effect well, avoiding this kind of cost.

Archwing Dragon For many times i get him in and out, because i hate when i loose him to the discard mechanics.

Cathartic Reunion, Sunbird's Invocation and many options for "draw" in red i already used, the thing is i made the deck low costa dragons exactly for Grafted Skullcap, Avaricious Dragon and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

going to see your deck right now, thanks for the tips.

TL;DR:

I need help building an efficient Reanimator package for a general who doesn't reanimate creatures. If I get that figured out, I can build the rest of the deck from there.

Introduction

Hey guys.

I'm trying to make my Inalla, Archmage Ritualist precon into a good/fun deck.

I want to abuse the ETB strategy for Inalla, so I'm putting in cards like:

Cards That I Own

I own cards for a Tribal deck, so I'd like to put in my cards like:

I also own just a few cards I've seen in common reanimator builds:

The Big Problem:

Considering that I plan to replace the majority of my Instants and Sorceries with ETB Wizards, I realized if I wanted to use them more than once, I'd have to build some kind of Reanimator package for the deck.

If there's any strategy in EDH that I suck at the most, it's definitely reanimator!

Do any of you have a simple decklist or skeleton of Reanimator staples that I need to put in the deck? I would greatly appreciate any help.

Did you tried Sneak Attack? Or God-Pharaoh's Gift? I think they are good way to cheat or recur your dragons. Or another Incredible red card to cheat your creatures is Etali, Primal Storm.

Since you have a lot of strong creatures I would recommend using Guild Feud. You can always choose the control player without any creatures to allow to only you to put a creature into play. Or your creature should win the fight.

Another similar card I use in my zirilan list is Warp World. This way you can sometimes cheat a lot of your dragons into play.

I would recommend using Archwing Dragon to trigger your cmd every turn.

And I rather use Cathartic Reunion or Sunbird's Invocation than using Grafted Skullcap.
