Sephyrias are you achieving Blightsteel Colossus for 3 mana over the first 2 turns using only 2 nonland cards from your opening hand?

If so - then yeah, it's more oppressive than iona in casual. Iona feels like a preemptive ban to prevent iona-servant locks (seems simpler to assemble than Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice locks and Stasis + stasis parity breaker locks)

gdm1989 Thanks! I went very deep for the feeling this deck is supposed to express.

To your question

Short answer is no

Long answer is we dont really win off of lab man in most of our games, our Stasis lock wins us the game by making sure everyone does nothing to win, rather than having an effect that says "you win the game". It's more fun that way.

Hotcake_Gotsyrup you'll have more success discussing such spice in the cedh discord (there's even a specific cord for kykar! https://discord.gg/ZDnKQp)

I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't have any synergy with kicker, but despite that personal gripe there's a neat build that uses Divergent Transformations into Magus of the Future and Trinket Mage . Seems strange, but the mage fetches Sensei's Divining Top and Kykar makes top cost 0(ish), so you're then able to draw your deck for free.

I like the idea of cracker-thief (spirits love crackers) where the deck abuses Smothering Tithe + wheels like opus-thief in order to "disrupt" opponents and assemble a lock via Stasis + tithe (or any manner of locks you'd like) / any simple a+b combo.

Kykar looks like there's some awesome spice just beneath the surface. If you come up with anything spicy, I'm sure we'd all love to hear your thoughts.

Kiyomei on 京 High Lord Urza (UPS) (CEDH) 京

Hey there Demonio_de_Laplace thanks for the comment!

  • 1: Cavern of Souls ; Good point! at the moment most Mono blue list except for Arcum don't play caverns at all. within a meta where blue is more dominant, this indeed is a very good slot!

  • 2: Stasis is a gameplan you can't really work around with Urza because unlike Teferi, for example, he can Untap artifacts and make it somewhat asymmetrical consistently and abuse it way more than Urza could. if you feel like you need to stall more and want a Stax heavy build you could go for it as it's still better than Trinisphere for this deck and you could prolong its lifetime if you keep drawing into castable artifacts.

  • 3: Candelabra of Tawnos is undeniably a good utility card in storm/tide decks. It is Not essential, but it smooths your storms turns out a lot and makes High Tide lines really really effective. Of course, this is not a number one priority card for the deck and shouldn't be considered first if you're going to spend money, You should be better of getting fetches, duals, ramp artifacts and all that first before i would recommend someone to get one as you'll really commit to the deck by then...

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.


I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

1x Estrid, the Masked 1x Breeding Pool 1x Estrid's Invocation 1x Gift of Paradise 1x Imprisoned in the Moon 1x Mystic Remora 1x Weirding Wood 1x Swan Song 1x Swords to Plowshares 1x Kiora's Follower 1x Bramble Sovereign 2x Stasis 1x Hokori, Dust Drinker 1x Linvala, Keeper of Silence 1x Chain of Vapor 1x Spellseeker AnyX Forge of Heroes

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

And I was also thinking about making a Feather EDH deck, so I would be interested in trading for these cards as well:

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.


You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.

CyborgAeon on Raging River

Hi there,

So my initial thoughts are: You've got WAY too many ways to get extra lands; while each one of these is: "tap: draw a card, gain 1 life" in Tatyova (with something like Simic Growth Chamber ) it doesn't mean that you need nearly that many.

The large number makes this feel like a land-ball style, where you just keep balling lands until you hit a win condition ( Storm Cauldron + Stasis / craterhoof). That's great, but quite cyclical. So my initial suggestions look at the following factors:

1: You'd like this deck to have a lot of replay value and be strong. 2: You don't want this deck to be -too- strong that it gives you a bad rep.

With both of those factors in mind, I'd like to ask: there are many types of Tatyova builds you could go for, what playstyle/archetype suits you and your playgroup best?

For example, Tatyova works with a lot of archetypes.

You've built the 'Land-ball' which is combo-y, but mostly just a fast land-loop 'til you play a win-condition.

Another is control, wherein you use lands and catch-all cards to slow opponents down while you find/grind a win (find/grind meaning - you either find your combo or win con, grind meaning that you go in for the beat-down strat with Tatyova and value creatures).

Traditional lands is another archetype that plays similar to control, using silver-bullet land cards to hinder or stop your opponents, while you find your engine/win condition and end the game from there. Classic win conditions include: Dark depths + thespian stage. Azusa + crucible + strip mine.

Storm is a simple way to play Tatyova - you play a midrange until the turn that you're ready to go off, and at that point you get to really show some explosiveness (this is often dull for opponents if you're not fast/well versed with storming off alone).

Value-town is another major archetype that Tatyova lends herself well to. Plenty of great cards have good synergy with this: Patron of the Moon , Patron of the Orochi , Liege of the Tangle , Multani.

Stax is my personal favourite and what I built before moving to storm, as stax-yova allows you to run cards like Mana Vortex alongside Crucible of Worlds and Life from the Loam in order to create a boardstate where your opponents are suffering beneath tax effects and you are creating a gap of disparity that is insurmountable.

There's others I'm sure, but these are the first few to come to mind.

SideBae on Sen Triplets

This is marked 'Help.' Below is my attempt at doing so:

First off, if you aren't averse to it on flavor grounds, I suggest the off-color fetches like Windswept Heath and Scalding Tarn . These could replace Temple of Silence and other ETB tapped lands, fetching your duals and shocks. These also allow for more shuffle effects off cards like Brainstorm .

If your meta is like mine, Sen Triplets will draw a lot of hate. Wearing down enemy resources can be useful. Pox is one of the most brutal EDH cards, but its younger brother Smallpox is sometimes better. It's good as a compliment to Liliana of the Veil , and fits within the control theme. Adding Waste Not to the mix, along with effects like Words of Waste , may be fun. I realize that this lowers the number of cards you have access to in your opponents' hands, but it is still a very powerful effect.

Preordain is a good cantrip with Brainstorm and Ponder .

You may have more luck with Cataclysm than Scourglass . It also wipes planeswalkers, but for less mana. Additionally, being able to access opponents' hands means you can rebuild faster than your opponents.

Remand seems like a good card in your deck, seeing as you can return a spell you want to cast, then target the opponent you countered and cast the spell yourself. Similarly, bouncing a juicy permanent during the end step before your turn means you can play it on yours. Winds of Rebuke and Snap might merit an include.

If you want to be a REAL douche, you can stick in Stasis in conjunction with Smothering Tithe . That's a BRUTAL combo.

Notion Thief is typically a good idea in a control deck that includes Dimir colors. Using him means Arcane Denial becomes straight busted, and running it with cards like Windfall and Time Spiral can simply shut people out of the game.

Telepathy can give you information on who you want to target with your general's ability.

Have you considered running Karn, the Great Creator in conjunction with the Mycosynth Lattice ?

I'm not sure what your meta is like, but mine includes things like Gaddock Teeg . I suggest running Toxic Deluge to get around this sort of effect. Another meta call is Mental Misstep , which I've also had luck with.

I like your Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study . I suggest things like Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Painful Truths .

I apologize if my suggestions are less than ideal; I've never had much success with this general. But that's what comes to mind. Good luck.
