Solemn Simulacrum Discussion

ManiacalPotato on Eldrazi

1 day ago

Chief of the Foundry seems kinda weak since you're not playing that many artifact creatures, and Terrarion only really serves as mediocre card draw since you don't need mana filters.

Quicksilver Amulet, Belbe's Portal, Deathrender, Clone Shell, Summoner's Egg, Planar Bridge could help in getting your eldrazi out earlier, albeit at the cost of any "whenever you cast this creature" triggers.

Mystifying Maze, Miren, the Moaning Well, and Thespian's Stage are pretty good colorless lands, as well as land destruction lands like Strip Mine or Field of Ruin would fit nicely.

Sword of the Animist and Solemn Simulacrum could help with ramp, and Mind Stone is a good colorless mana rock. Also if you find that you have a lot of mana sitting around before you get your big dudes out, Everflowing Chalice or Gemstone Array could be pretty good

Darkshadow327 on Devoid of Skill

1 day ago

Colorless deck with no Eldrazi Conscription?!?! This would be just too funny not to play it.

Bane of Bala Ged is a fun eldrazi to play.

Everflowing Chalice, Solemn Simulacrum, and Warden of Geometries are some ramp.

Soul of New Phyrexia and Platinum Angel are some good protection.

Wurmcoil Engine is just a fun card.

crash328 on Aminatou unorthodox tech

2 days ago

So, I've been tinkering with the Aminatou commander deck for a few months and ive got it pretty close to where I want it. One major downside to esper is the lack of non artifact, land based ramping (a la Cultivate or Rampant Growth etc.) I have Solemn Simulacrum and Druidic Satchel but I had an idea for Aminatou to use the cards Political Trickery and Vedalken Plotter in combination with Aminatou's -1 and other flickerers in tandem to have them work as land ramp via theft of opponents. Is this something worth trying or too gimmicky for viability

BMHKain on Stuff that's important for what ...

5 days ago

NOTE: This is a topic regarding cEDH Boros. If you think there is no hope for it, do NOT post on this. (The Bold should be warning enough...)

After trying to cut some stuff to 100 for some things, I realized, there is some others to do regarding one deck:

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


I previously wanted this to be Tier 3, as one joke cEDH deck (Depala, of all things.), did this. But this is a serious attempt by all means. That said, I'll mention some things worth note to get at least just a little bit closer to my goal:

Both of their most recent prints state their abilities differently. Pyroblast has:

Choose one — • Counter target spell if it's blue. • Destroy target permanent if it's blue.

Red Elemental Blast?

Choose one — • Counter target blue spell. • Destroy target blue permanent.

This seems written differently; but I dunno how this is different from the others. Regardless, cEDH usually smiles upon . So I'll leave it to you to decide...

This is a biggie. One person not known for cEDH believes this is a real dud of a wincon. But I'd like some opinions o this. If this really does suck, at least that's 3 cuts so far. Aside from this, Grand Abolisher does wonders here.

This is new as I found that Magistrate's Scepter is just one target for counters; something I know FOR A FACT Boros is NOT good at in the slightest (There, a minus. See? I can agree w/ you too. 0-^) Prototype Portal can imprint any artifact; which can range from an infinite mana via Lotus Petal, or Infinite Turns w/ Ugin's Nexus. Problem? I have little to nothing to destroy the copy is opposed to exiling it. Plus, this is quite expensive; but I don't want to use Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite loops; they can be disrupted; besides, this is the only option left (Gonti's Aether Heart is more expensive anyway.). Bonus points for infinite mana in case Ugin's Nexus is a skip. I'll let you decide.

I'm confused about this; happy, but confused. Usually stuff lower than 3 CMC would be fine; but one cEDH Staples lists actually lists her on the main list. runs Dorks, & so few even reach a 3+ toughness. Should I get rid of her for CMC's sake? or should I keep her as a Gamekiller?

W/ so many doing stuff outside of Lifeloss/lifegain, this should be very important to note as others would either Self-Mill via Laboratory Maniac, Maze's End a game, basically put; Wincons that don't depend on Life Total. So, should I put in stuff like these, Goblin Chainwhirler, or other things that can kill life totals? Otherwise, I at least have Altar of the Brood to mill everyone else... XP

After knowing about creatures outside of that can produce Mana, I decided Neheb, the Eternal is no longer enough (It actually requires Damage dealing to make it work; so, I'm thinking of cutting him; considering nobody really wants to damage anyways.). While I could flicker [Farrelite Priest]] & make her new, w/o previous memory, I want to leave it to you; w/ so much Devotion to , Should I rather increase the amount of Plains & decrease the number of Mountains? (I have Blood Moon Anyway...). If she is crap to you, I want to know why; I cannot run Avacyn's Pilgrim you know.

Yes, I get it. Tamiyo's Journal is the only Target of this inspector. That said, Tamiyo's Journal can search for anything. Problem? One target. Not consistent enough, & nobody is recommending a card like Tamiyo's Journal that can also work on its own... Ideas are welcome.

This combo came to me in the form of an Epiphany. After I blow up all lands, I can flicker Fiend Hunter exiling Sun Titan to bring all my lands back; yes, this is possible. Since Lands are 0CMC Permanents, I can bring them all back to my side. even a combo like this can't be stopped by the next part of this charade...

Some of the best cards in this deck so far. It promotes a Prison-Lock for all Graveyards in play. Since this deck should be able to have effects that bypass both of these; I just want to know what to cut due to these...

This also applies to what I can use for Arcane Laboratory in . This combo has been looked up, but I dunno how it'll work here... It should be useful, but I dunno if it's cEDH competitive or not; much less how it works. If this is good both ways, I'm keeping them. At least tell me how it works, please...

  • Squee Sucks?

Squee, the Immortal + Goblin Bombardment was meant to be used as a combo here. But since this uses Eldrazi Displacer to flicker ETB/CIP Creatures, I'm thinking of cutting the former 2 unless I can find a card that mimics Displacer's effect, so I don't have to have just one of such effect to waste... Felidar Guardian?

  • The Emancipation Proclamation NEVER happened...

Emancipation Angel is something not to be cross with. She can return any permanent you control to your hand. Simple as that. Since it's an ETB ability, Eldrazi Displacer can bounce her, & she can do this again. If you want a list of Creatures in my deck that are ETB/CIP based, SUGOI! LET'S KICK As- Captain Janeway: Asteroids. Seven of Nine: Fun will now commence.

(Yes. I LITERALLY pulled off a Star Trek: Voyager.)

Duergar Hedge-Mage Fiend Hunter Goblin Chainwhirler Goblin Settler Imperial Recruiter Mentor of the Meek Mikaeus, the Lunarch Priest of Urabrask Recruiter of the Guard Solemn Simulacrum Sun Titan Thraben Inspector Village Bell-Ringer Wall of Omens Wily Goblin

(Damn, that's a lot... I need to lessen the lot...)

Paradox Engine is the only thing I have to Isochron Scepter imprinting Dramatic Reversal, so it NEEDS to stay; plus, I could've sworn it was a staple here... While this has quite some ETB/CIP effects, that doesn't have to mean things can't be cast either. Even stuff like Sunforger when casting instants are still considered cast. Even Mistveil Plains can bring them back. I really just wanted to throw in Reito Lantern, though; but cards like Grafdigger's Cage might mess w/ it; so it's now a skip.

Recently, I wanted to take this deck to a differing route; Value Town/Stax/Prison. This in turn meant a lot of stuff; Glowrider, Thorn of Amethyst (How fitting as it's my birthstone; but I still hated how STEVEN UNIVERSE personified her as a character since the beginning... :/), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare, Ethersworn Canonist, Kismet, even Sphere of Resistance is damn good here. While a lot would think stuff like this is crap here, even stuff like Stranglehold, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Grand Abolisher, even Ugin's Nexus & Defense Grid are all great here. Irony? Many wouldn't see all this as competitive enough. So, w/ all that said, one last thing...

  • Any ideas for a new CMDR?

Alright, we're almost done with what might be my longest post here ever... I've been thinking for the longest time; I need a new commander; Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is too much now. Since I took the liberty to change from Stax/Control (Or Value Town/Stax? I dun remember...) to Value Town/Stax/Prison. From there, I decided to make a change of CMDR. But there were bigger flaws w/ most, so I decided to make some regulations:

  1. No Tier 5 CMDRs.
  2. No Tribal Commanders (Stuff like Depala, Pilot Exemplar apply here.)
  3. Partners are only Allowed if not from BBD (Battlebond) (Khorvath Brightflame + Sylvia Brightspear for instance is not allowed.)
  4. Equipment/Aura Based CMDRS are out; I don't have any of that anyway...

I guess this is alright? The reason I left out 5. It must be Aggro Based is, well, the rest of the Tier 4s w/o only counting none of them.

Now I leave all this to you: What should I cut for a legit Tier 3 cEDH deck? I apologize for the Mammoth Sized Text, but it should be worth the effort.

I am open to Constructive Criticism only. I hope this is of good help for what is worth of help to me. I'll let you decide on my fate on this deck now.

Stefouch on Balthor the Graveyard Defiler

5 days ago

Balthor and Chainer have also different strategies.

Balthor wants to kill in a single big reanimation turn, or at least reanimate a big board to be back in the game if behind.

Chainer is more control. Less sensible to graveyard hate (because you can target enemies' graveyards) but more to creature removals (because you lose everything if Chainer dies). Chainer can reanimate good artifact creatures like Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Wurmcoil Engine and Solemn Simulacrum.. which Balthor can't.

BelugaWhale217 on Black/Green Glissa Commander Deck

good artifacts to have regardless of the theme is/are the availible signets. In your case, it would be Golgari Signet. Other nice mana rocks include Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Charcoal Diamond, Commander's Sphere, and Darksteel Ingot. There are spells that allow you to search for lands, such as Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation, and Hour of Promise. The article you mentioned was wrong, as the only card you can have multiple copies of are basic lands. If you wanted to keep with the artifact theme, then run Artifact Creatures such as Darksteel Colossus, Triskelion, Noxious Gearhulk, Verdurous Gearhulk, Duplicant, and Solemn Simulacrum (AKA sad robot). There are many more and if you want check some out you could use this link[%22Artifact%22]+[%22Creature%22]. Just remember that not every one is a winner and you don't have to run all of them. If you wanted to replace your commander, that's entirely your choice, but unfortuatly, golgari isn't known for making creatures unblockable. the Simic commander Kaseto, Orochi Archmage and the Arzorius commander Sygg, River Guide gives creatures unblockable. If I choose a new commander, I would choose Kaseto because it's less restictive, and while you can build it tribal, it can also have some other strategy. The youtube channel "Tolarian Community College" has guides on both of these commanders if you decide to go this route and get stuck. EDHREC ( is also a great tool for building a commander deck.

SP3CTR3_chelts on Athreos, Psuedo Reanimator.

1 week ago


I'm loving seeing another Athreos EDH deck out there. There are not many being posted on this site. My Deck lacks direction so I am tinkering with it quite a bit. I found Solemn Simulacrum to be great value for cards.Desecrated Tomb I found to have an interesting interaction with Athreos, whenever an opponent chooses not to pay Athreos' fee you get a bat:).

Thanks for posting your deck I'm sure it is going to help me try to give mine direction!
