Soratami Mirror-Mage Discussion
1 year ago
A few Moonfolk critters are amazing in a Tatyova deck. These are the ones I’ld use but any of them would work:
- Meloku the Clouded Mirror
- Soratami Mindsweeper
- Soratami Mirror-Mage
- Soratami Rainshaper
- Soratami Savant
- Uyo, Silent Prophet
Any and or all of these would give you lots of lands to play every turn. Roil Elemental and Hedron Crab to take advantage of all the lands being played and maybe Patron of the Moonfolk to help you play all these lands. And with the infinite mana combos you have in here you could get infinite landfall triggers by using any of the Moonfolk and the Patron.

I'll add Wayward Swordtooth, Rites of Flourishing, Ramunap Excavator and Sylvan Safekeeper to the Maybeboard for now - I am having some problems with what to take out, though. And this is true for my other cards in the Maybeboard aswell (Life from the Loam, Perilous Forays, Amulet of Vigor).
As for another moonfolk.. I'm considering Oboro Breezecaller, Soratami Cloudskater, Soratami Mirror-Mage, Soratami Savant or Uyo, Silent Prophet. Which one do you like the most? I like the abilities of Uyo, Silent Prophet and Soratami Savant the most, but their abilities are quite expensive, why I might be in favor of Oboro Breezecaller which might add some flexibility. Any thoughts?
And thanks again!

Any of the Moonfolk that have mana costs equal to the amount of lands they bounce work well with your combos (and the cards are cheap budget-wise). Meloku the Clouded Mirror allows for infinite tokens and Soratami Mirror-Mage provides an infinite Capsize-like effect.

At Tio_Infernape Thanks for your suggestion. It is tempting to run Nissa, Vital Force in the deck but I think I am going to pass. When I run planeswalkers in EDH I don't expect them to live very long. To me her +1 ability is somewhat underwhelming and with a kill spell puts you out a land. The -3 is a bit better but Eternal Witness does the same thing better but for less. Also I can abuse Eternal Witness with Soratami Mirror-Mage and Rite of Replication. Furthermore Eternal Witness is a lot more consistent with all the creature fetch I run. I will say that the -6 ability is rather nice. However I know they are easier to remove then an emblem but Horn of Greed and Tireless Tracker do almost the same thing. Thanks for your help if you have anymore suggestions I am all ears.

I agree with several statements that fragarach97 has touched upon. Undergrowth Champion is a phenomenal creature, as is Lotus Cobra (free mana for Moonfolk abilities, seriously, think about its inclusion despite its price). I would agree to cut out the Stalkers for cards with more synergy. Another suggestion I would give is Courser of Kruphix, which gives life in addition to land, and greatly assists in prolonging matches.
Sakura-Tribe Scout is a brilliant inclusion, but I am not a fan of Skyshroud Ranger. Instead, consider:
- Explore (landfall cantrip), as mentioned before.
- Swell of Growth (wimpy Giant Growth/landfall hybrid).
- Budoka Gardener (2 CMC Sakura-Tribe Scout that can eventually become an alternate wincon).
- Exploration (pricey, but the best 1 CMC card you could add).
- Azusa, Lost but Seeking (again, this girl isn't cheap either).
- Oracle of Mul Daya (another expensive gem).
Moonfolk aren't necessarily bad, they just need the support from cards like those listed above. Some do pull more weight than others, however. I would lose Oboro Breezecaller if nothing else. Its ability is not worth its cost, and Floodbringer is much better for the slot (it's usually more beneficial to deprive an opponent a land than to untap one of your own for the same cost). Also, Uyo isn't as effective in this deck as it could be unless some of your own instants and sorceries are included as well. Other things to consider:

Hi, all. I'm relatively new here, but not new to Magic. However, I was on a long hiatus, and just recently got back into Magic since my kids dug up some of my cards and got interested. Since then, Commander became a thing, and I am hooked on the format. I don't play competitively, mostly casual, and in as big a group I can find (right now its usually 3-4).
To give an idea of when I dropped off the map, it was during the Kamigawa rotation. At that time, I built a casual deck built around getting the hand size up and winging with creatures like Multani, Maro-Sorcerer, Descendant of Masumaro, Masumaro, First to Live, Maro, Sylvan Yeti, and Soramaro, First to Dream.
The idea was to use cards from the Kamigawa block to return lands to my hand, try to draw cards, and hit with the biggies. I ran cards like Oboro Envoy, Oboro Breezecaller, Floodbringer, Elder Pine of Jukai, Soratami Mirror-Mage, Inner Calm, Outer Strength, Graceful Adept, and Soratami Rainshaper. They all had some decent utility in bouncing the land cards. I didn't play EDH at the time, and the deck really never took off for me. I loved the concept behind it, but couldn't really make it work well in a 60-card casual format.
But now, with the possibilities of Commander at hand, I figured there's got to be some way to make this theme work, if not to win, at least to be able to play out for a while. I also had a casual deck I tried to build around Squirrel Wrangler and Groundskeeper, which would fit into a blue/green Commander deck, as well.
So, with all that said, I was hoping I could get some suggestions from the community here as for making this theme EDH-worthy. I'm looking at blue/green primarily, but not exclusively. To start, I need a Commander. I thought maybe Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, but maybe Edric, Spymaster of Trest would be better? Perhaps Tamiyo, Field Researcher?
Another problem I have is after being out for so long, I'm playing catch-up as to what's available. I figured the posters here probably have a good working knowledge of what would fit into a deck themed this way.
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I run fairly budget, but I've got some decent stuff in my collection, and will splurge at times if I think its worth it, so suggest anything.
Thanks for taking the time to help me out!

Moonfolk I'll like to use:
(Since the deck might be three colors we might need this one)
Soratami Mirror-Mage (maybe)
there so many more
