Storm Crow Discussion

Quiet_Listener on Budgetish Mono Green Eldrazi Tron

I hear you. However, this deck isn't meant to be competitive so much as it is made to be played in a low power kitchen table format. So, this deck is an attempt to keep tron underpowered while still being somewhat able to play around with a fun mechanic. Completely agree with your points though. I could throw almost any other high cost Eldrazi into this deck to make it better.

And don't knock Endbringer. With one on the board you can easily win in 20 turns without attacking. Way better than Storm Crow because sometimes my opponent has flying creatures and you can't attack around them. Obviously I would be playing Storm Crow as well, but it's hard to fix the mana consistently.

Way too powerful, the only way I can see beating this deck is if wizards reprints Storm Crow.

Decrepit_Angel on Tier 0 Ultra Competitive cEDH Voltron Storm Crow

dsigsbee: I play cEDH primarily. In competitive EDH, most decks are combo decks or stax decks to prevent combo decks from winning. Any strategy that actually takes additional turns to kill off the table is inherently weaker than a strategy that goes infinite and laser beams the table with Aetherflux Reservoir. Especially one that is reliant on a creature surviving and dealing damage to my opponents, which is far more disruptable than an actual storm deck (and quite frankly, more fun to lose to than someone casting 40 cards and taking a 20 minute turn until they eventually say that they found the win). With this information, it is clear that a voltron deck built around killing my opponents with a creature that has a ton of equipment on it is significantly weaker than just racing into an infinite that wins on the spot.

As for the price argument, this is my paper list. I already own a Timetwister and a bunch of the other high end cards so I see no reason to not play them. That said, Timetwister is roughly half the price of the deck and isn't necessary at all because I cannot loop it the way my Thrasios/Vial Smasher deck can to use it as a win condition. The fetch lands (again, I already had them) are literally just there for the rare chance that I cast a Brainstorm and get some extra value or if I am digging with Sensei's Divining Top and want a shuffle effect. They are not necessary for the deck. I also have a bunch of the Kaladesh Masterpiece series cards which because people keep buying them out are reaching astronomical prices. If you run a non foiled version without a few of the high end cards which really aren't necessary the deck is reasonably affordable. But, "playing a weaker strategy with the best possible cards to achieve that goal" means playing the best possible cards to achieve that, hence the inclusion of some of the ridiculously expensive cards.

That said, this deck is a joke that just used some of the cards I had lying around from previous decks and borrows a few cards from my Thrasios/Vial Smasher deck whenever I want to play it. It is not intended to be a primer for others to build as much as it is a demonstration of a joke deck that I use to play against lower power level tables in my meta. With some budget alterations and the consent of the players in your playgroup to use a non-legendary creature as a commander (out of roughly 200 people I have played against, only 1 has ever cared once they saw that it was a Storm Crow), it can easily be made to function in other metas if that is what you were hoping for. Hopefully that cleared it up.

Not sure how this deck embodies the philosophy of "playing a weaker strategy with the best possible cards to achieve that goal" given that your strategy seems to be stax/tron and in a mono-color shell at that. I think the claim must have to rest on the fact that Storm Crow is not considered a good card, let alone commander, but surely commander choice is but only part of the overall strategy -- in this case a larger part of the strategy is to have op stax/tron components available to your commander. What's further, dumping $5.5k into stax/tron components is, arguably, one of the more frustrating embodiments of a "pay-to-play" deck. Maybe I'm missing something here...

chosenone124 on Sakashima the Impostor and Helm ...

Suppose I have a Storm Crow. I cast Sakashima the Impostor copying Storm Crow, leaving me with a 1/2 Flying Legendary creature named Sakashima the Impostor.

I cast Helm of the Host, equip it to Sakashima, and enter combat. I have the token copy Grizzly Bears (if possible). What are its characteristics?

Halphinian on Infinite combo challenge

I have one:

Mycosynth Lattice + (Pentavus + Gilded Lotus + Dross Scorpion) + Cogwork Assembler + Storm Crow = infinite mana, which leads to infinite activations of Cogwork Assembler, which leads to infinite Storm Crows on the spot.

Is is unnecessarily complicated? Yes. Is it worth it? Hell yes.

I choose Selective Memory

Heres a fun little game. Name ANY card in magic's history (Not un-cards) and then the person below will make up an infinite combo using that card as a part of it in some way or another. It just has to be a part of the combo It doesn't have to be an important part of the combo just in it I still have yet to think of a card that is impossible to use in an infinite combo of some sort NOTE: the combo does not have to be game winning just an effect you can repeat as many times as you want. Here I'll start Storm Crow
