Storm Herd Discussion
1 week ago
Several suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down by category. Definitely work on getting more extra combat/turns effects in here though.
Ramp: First, drop all your mana rocks that cost 3 or more. You want your mana rocks to cost 2 or less (3 is ok if it adds more than 1 mana). Drop Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Locket, Jeskai Banner, and Manalith.
Aura/Equipment: With enough ramp you need very little here. Spirit Mantle, Steel of the Godhead , and Aqueous Form should be your main 3. I also ran Indestructibility and Shielded by Faith to help negate most boardwipes. About 6 of these effects tops should be enough and try to keep the cost/equip cost low.
Haste Enablers: Narset not needing to live a turn is huge. Consider Need for Speed , Ashling's Prerogative , and/or Mass Hysteria . Don't lay those last 2 down until the turn before you're ready to attack (at the earliest) though.
Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. The deck is pretty optimized(no enter the infinite/omniscience though). Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Narset, American Beauty - Retired

Well hello there Weiss ;P
It's always nice to see another Teysa Karlov deck, and the token route is definitely a fun one.
If you want any other ideas I also have my own deck: May We Never Part | Teysa Karlov EDH | PRIMER
I hope that this helps!

Storm Herd might come back in, but only if there is a spot for it. I'm proud of what this deck has become, it seems close in power level to the Arcades, the Strategist deck I've made. That deck is the one that I consider the best I've ever made.
I doubt I'll get this in paper anytime within the next few years. I don't make money and my playgroup doesn't like commander (They should be ashamed). If I have time I'll definitely play it in Untap though.

No problem Darkshadow327!
For the case on Knight of the Last Breath , he is just way too expensive and the Afterlife 3 is cool but the stats and investment on him is just way too high to consider. If he was a 5 cmc slot I would consider it but 7 is asking for too much. If he was Afterlife 6 as well than yes there are ways you can use him. But as of now just no, Twilight Drover is just better and can lead to more shenanigans.
You can add in Storm Herd as I said previously, this is your deck. It is a bomb that has to be answered and if you have only one high cost spell for funzies, that is A-OK! Evryone has to have that part in them where they want to play fun spells no matter how non-sensical it is.
Once you get the deck in paper you can fine-tune it and see how it will play out. Nothing beats actually playing with your own deck and seeing the results!

Hmm, some good points here hkhssweiss
I usually like In Garruk's Wake because it's asymmetrical, but you pointing it out made me go "wait, I want my creatures to die!"
Cleansing Nova was in here mainly for artifacts and enchantments since has trouble dealing with them, but I suppose I have a few ways to deal with them. If worse comes to worse odds are good that someone else will deal with the threat.
I guess I do already have cards like Krav, the Unredeemed that are better.
Thran Dynamo was a card that I was thinking about, but I agree that I could do without it.
Seraph of the Scales was in here mainly for the afterlife and possibility for deathtouch, but I agree that it's lackluster.
I guess Thrilling Encore is a bit expensive
Maybe one day you will be in a deck Storm Herd . One day . . .
I suppose there are better ways than Nomads' Assembly
I do like the death trigger on Ancient Stone Idol and that fact that its cost can be reduced. A card to consider taking out though
I'm definitely on the edge about Knight of the Last Breath . On one hand it has afterlife and can be a sac outlet, but on the other it's stats are kind of bad.
I feel like Helm of the Host can do good by cloning creatures with death triggers. (My goal is to make a ton of Elenda, the Dusk Rose 's. But I live in Magical Christmas Land most of the time, so who knows if that will happen).
I really appreciate this. Both you and DrkNinja have brought up good points that have really sped this process along!

Here are 20 cards you can consider cutting:
- Ancient Stone Idol - Too high CMC and just a beater.
- Crested Sunmare - I like it but one of your slower weaker cards.
- Falkenrath Noble - You have cheaper same redundant effects.
- Knight of the Last Breath - Way too high CMC, doesn't impact board.
- Meadowboon - Doesn't trigger Teysa.
- Night Incarnate - Not good enough.
- Krav, the Unredeemed - We don't generate that much tokens to be efficient.
- Seraph of the Scales - Good in limited, in EDH she is subpar.
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts - Too high cost, and you don't want people to swing at you.
- Vindictive Vampire - Same reason as noble.
- In Garruk's Wake - Too high cost.
- Storm Herd - Just needs to be cut, as no way to free cast or reduce.
- Helm of the Host - Fun card but doesn't synergize efficiently.
- Ashes of the Abhorrent - This might actually one day be bad for your game plan.
- Exquisite Blood - not that great by itself and hard to combo off.
- Sanguine Bond - Same as above.
- Nomads' Assembly - There are better ways to make tokens.
- Thrilling Encore - I like this card as well, but most of the time holding up 5 mana is quite hard.
- Cleansing Nova - You already have Merciless Eviction , you don't need two types.
- Thran Dynamo - This might seem weird, but I would rather have a 2 CMC mana rock over this one at times.
Hope that helps cutting!

Ya, I see where you are both coming from here. In all honesty Storm Herd has a good chance of being cut, I still have to cut ~20 cards.

I've found that Ashen Rider is a good political tool since people don't really like their stuff exiled. It is a card to consider taking out though.
I've definitely been on the edge about Butcher of Malakir , I agree with you here
I've been on the edge about Extractor Demon too.
I like the "may" clause on Harvester of Souls , but it is definitely a card to consider replacing.
In a vacuum Knight of the Last Breath is definitely horrible. However, in this deck it can really work. Sacrificing something to just get a token out of it (along with any death triggers) is useful, and the low 4/4 stats are more than compensated for by the fact that it has Afterlife 4.
I do like Krav, the Unredeemed since it can help with many different areas of the deck.
Most of my tokens are white, which is why I have Light of the Legion . It is a card that have really been leaning towards cutting though.
Regna, the Redeemer is definitely expensive, but I do like token production and the fact that she can tutor for Krav. Definitely one that might not make the cut though.
Nomads' Assembly and Storm Herd synergize very well with the token theme, and the fact that all those tokens will gain me tons of life is worth it to me. To be honest since this won't be cEDH they aren't extremely expensive by commander terms, though Storm Herd is definitely pretty high on the curve.
Again, while it might be higher on the curve Rise of the Dark Realms won't be extremely hard to get to. Although, target recursion might be better in this deck.
With all the tokens I'm gonna get attacking will still be relevant, especially since the tokens dying can still trigger effects. Cathars' Crusade can help, it might not make it in though.
Divine Visitation is another card I've been on the fence about, it would probably be better in another deck.
Sword of Light and Shadow just gives that extra lifegain and recursion, just have it in the "protection" category because I didn't know where to put it.
Lifeline is cool, I've never seen that before
Totally forgot about Razaketh and Sheoldred. I feel stupid now.
Bontu's will definitely do work
Teferi's Protection has been in and then cut more times then I can count, it is definitely staying this time though.
I've been considering Smothering Abomination , it would be good.
Oversold Cemetery is a really cool card.
Toxic Deluge is a good one, forgot about it too.
I really appreciate this! I'm sorry if it seems like I'm not accepting suggestions/criticism, I just like to provide explanations.
