Soul of New Phyrexia Discussion

Some things that deter/resist boardwipes might be good to include, since boardwipes can set you back pretty badly. These come to mind: Selfless Spirit , Requiem Angel , Soul of New Phyrexia , Deathless Angel , Fanatical Devotion

You really don't need both Krenkos. You also probably don't need Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar because your other token generators are mostly strictly better. Doubling Season ... good card but $50 so you may want to take it out for now. You could probably take out Primal Vigor for the same reason. Eldrazi Monument is kind of overkill if you want to give your commander or your creatures indestructible, there are more specific cards like Soul of New Phyrexia for that purpose.

Again most of these are for budget purposes gl

DarkHero on Mairsil, The Pretender Things That ...

2 months ago

Doing a little Brewing with Mairsil, the Pretender because I love commanders that let you use cards that don't see a lot of play. I've definitely come across some interesting stuff.

I'd like to share some of the interactions and also inquire about what others are thinking as far as efficiency and fun, or any other combos/interactions not mentioned.

  1. There are ways to get around the "only once per turn" wording. This is probably the most confusing piece of decks based on this Commander. The most obvious choice is Quicksilver Elemental , allowing you to pay to essential get a new instance of an ability. I am lead to believe that flickering Mairsil will also reset this rule. But if this is wrong or there is a way to make it more clear (OR OTHER WAYS TO DO IT) please share.

  2. AEtherling , Torchling , and Morphling are just about mandatory for protection and evasion.

  3. Untap effects are powerful, making Pili-Pala combos a thing, but I'm not sure what makes the most sense here. And finding a home for Horseshoe Crab .

  4. Skill Borrower can basically be a Mairsil Lite

  5. Loot Effects are excellent because Mairsil doesn't care if the target are in hand or in graveyard.

6. Pack Rat can be used to create copies of Mairsil, which one will die, but it can be used to evade and get additional uses of abilities.

7. Vector Asp ...

8. Anthroplasm + Sage of Hours in cages makes for extra turn shenanigans

9. Soul of New Phyrexia + Nevinyrral's Disk in cages creates one sided boardwipes on a stick.

10. The Chain Veil ? Could Grixis Superfriends be a thing with a combo here? If anything you get the ability without the drawback.

11.And this is the big one. Mirror-Mad Phantasm . So the wording here is different, "a card named..." means we won't replace the name with Mairsil, so we will rummage through our deck looking for another Phantasm, that isn't there. So we are able to put our entire library into the graveyard. From here we can use a combo based around Narcomoeba , Bloodghast Fatestitcher , Dread Return , Laboratory Maniac , and flashback Deep Analysis for the win. It's a little janky, but it is essentially a 2 card combo with a little support.

12.Aside from that, Necrotic Ooze would love all these activated abilities in the graveyard.

Again I'm looking to provide some clarity, for others and myself, on good ways to take this commander. If anything I've shared is wrong or there are better ways to do it, please let everyone know!

Tyranus68 on Kozilek, The Inevitable

RileyJP300 Thanks! I see what you mean with Temple of the False God as it would only help during turn 5 at the earliest which is when you should have Kozilek, the Great Distortion out, and thus hinder you if you have it as one of your openings hands. My land base has remained relatively unchanged to how it was when it was first made and so there are definitely lands that I didn't know about, that I'm egar to put in but I've just been lazy about as they're lands. At the moment I'm thinking of trying out Warping Wail and Winter Orb and a bunch of different utility lands. As unless I have Soul of New Phyrexia or Darksteel Forge out I can be set back by quite a bit, and Winter Orb will slow my opponents to a crawl. Whilst my rocks keep me going, especially with how it'll interact with things such as Clock of Omens and create interesting politic's situations. However, I don't think Not of This World will make a cut as I can easily cast Kozilek, the Great Distortion several times with amazing hand refills. Whilst I won't go for as many basics as you have, I'll probably add a couple more to ensure my library is never empty of them.

Syun_Wukong on My first Vampire deck - still needs help

The only card I can think of to go indestructible at the moment is Soul of New Phyrexia which at this point would be further convoluting the deck. I'm already having a hard time figuring out what to take out for the new stuff.

TogbusPrime on All Levels Except Physical

Werewolves have always been a favorite horror monster of mine, so I've tinkered with the tribe in EDH and a wolf enthusiast friend of mine actually made a deck for them. As such I've got a few suggestions, but take it with a grain of salt since our meta has an unusually high power level from what I've seen.

Given the description, I'm guessing the following are in to fill out the curve with early drops, but you may want to consider ditching Gatstaf Shepherd, Hanweir Watchkeep, Hinterland Logger, Lambholt Pacifist, Reckless Waif, Village Messenger, and Villagers of Estwald for later value cards or to free up room for some of my suggestions below. Similarly, I'd consider dropping Mass Hysteria as it seems dangerous, though with it's low mana cost I imagine you only cast it the turn you're going to win or as prep the one before that, and Fervor since you have access to better haste bestowers like Fires of Yavimaya , Rhythm of the Wild , Flamekin Village and/or other effects like Dolmen Gate , Angel's Trumpet , Sight of the Scalelords , and Steely Resolve .

As for what to put in, I think running both Radhas would make sense. Grand Warlord Radha allows you to aggress and progress in one fell swoop. In your present case that'd likely mean setting up so you have blockers for the possible crack back, though you could certainly add flash creatures to make the most of that mana during combat. As for the more on theme things there's stuff like Cult of the Waxing Moon , Spirit of the Hunt , Vildin-Pack Outcast  Flip, Howlpack Resurgence , Silverfur Partisan , and Hinterland Hermit  Flip to force blocking and potentially free up other shenanigans. There's also the {insert tribe here} supports like Adaptive Automaton , Brass Herald , and Metallic Mimic . Lastly I'd think about protection like Heroic Intervention and Soul of New Phyrexia since the board is key for decks like this and wipes are something any EDH deck worth its salt has at least a few of.

Ripwater on Primer: Kozilek Great Distortion of the Boardstate

Hey QuietMyth

Thanks for the quick response, it really helps with you explaining the choices so I can understand why you made them and will help piloting the deck and making my own choices allong the way. But since you already play it for so long I like to rely a bit on your experience :-)

I kinda overlooked the Soul of New Phyrexia , fills exactly the same role but does more! You really think Darksteel Forge aged badly? It seems like such a powerful card and as I experienced yesterday 9 mana is really not that much.... My playgroup loves to run boardwipes thats why I'm thinking of running it..

I ran Sorcerous Spyglass for quite some time in my Archidekt: Queen Marchesa Deck but I always found it a bit underwhelming and too niche to run it. So I took it out.

So we put The Immortal sun in the not great enough corner, to be fair if I had to choose between immortal sun and Paradox Engine I think the engine would win.

Well the fact that your decission of not running it comes down to the fact of not owning it is enough reason for me to order it hahah. I like your idea about torpor orb as well, shuts down a lot of stuff so I put it on my list as well. Any idea what you would cut for those 2 cards?

Thanks again for the response, I really think brainstorming about cards and decks is one of the fun parts about magic, so I hope this doesnt ask too much of your time and energy :)

Ripwater great to hear!

I rely on Soul of New Phyrexia for my indestructibility. Darksteel like many other cards has aged pretty badly as commander evolves and wizards prints things specifically for commander. Definitely prefer each card to do a variety of things.

Recently with the printing of such strong cards as Yawgmoth, i am looking at adding Sorcerous Spyglass as a versatile answer to many strategies, the deck needs all the cheap interaction it can get without dipping into bad cards like Titan's Presence

The immortal sun is great, its just a matter of fact that now, thankfully, there are enough great colorless cards that we cant play all of them.

Paradox engine ought to be here but i havent picked up a new one. I believe Torpor Orb will be coming back once i can find one too, it is way too good to exclude. Even if its shutting down our powerful Duplicant / Meteor Golem + Mimic Vat it hoses so many lethal effects for this deck like Bane of Progress or Aura Shards . And if we need to turn ETB back on we can sacrifice the orb to our many outlets
