Ryknow on Putting the "No" in "Mono-blue"

2 months ago

What do you think about these changes?

-1Sphinx of the Final Word +1Stormsurge Kraken/Sphinx of Magosi: the first Sphinx isn't that good, as its ability isn't really needed if I can only get it down on 7th/6th turn (most of my instants are 2CMC or lower); plus, my commander already makes everything I own uncounterable if it's on the field; on the other side, I could add one of those two big finisher, the former being untargettable and the latter being a huge mana sink flyer. In both cases, I'd lower my curve.

-1Trinket Mage +1Willbender: as we already said, the mage doesn't have enough targets in this deck to be good, while with the Willbender I'd lower my curve of a bit and get a nice utility creature (Can I flash a morphed creature in?).

+1Astral Cornucopia/Unstable Obelisk/Seer's Lantern -1 ???(Need a suggestion): I think that having at least another cheap mana rock could really help me with all the LD I regularly face.

I'm thinking about replacing Trinket Mage, as it doesn't have enough targets here to be efficient.

Should I put a mana rock in its place or maybe another creature that I could flash in with Teferi's ability?

I've got a couple sphinxes (Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Arbiter of the Ideal, Master of Predicaments), and some other big creature (Phyrexian Ingester, Stormsurge Kraken, Ixidron, Tromokratis, Lorthos, the Tidemaker; even some Eldrazi like Bane of Bala Ged, Artisan of Kozilek, It That Betrays) around; what do you think about this?

After playing several games with this deck, I have to say that I think it actually does very little. However, as far as I can remember, I think I have now played like 10-12 games with it and have only lost 2 or 3 of those games. It comes out of nowhere with guys like Stormsurge Kraken, Brine Elemental and Lorthos, the Tidemaker to get the quick victory. I have had so many games where people look over and its like, "Hey! What's he doing over there? Nothing important" and all of a sudden I hit them with the big guys and its, "How did this happen??"

Kederekt Leviathan, Summoner's Egg (doesn't work with Jalira's power but gets a big mana cost card onto the field if you draw it instead of digging), Stormsurge Kraken & maybe Myojin of Seeing Winds. Assuming you don't want to go for Eldrazi.

Homarid Spawning Bed would let you get a handfull of token creatures in return for something that was going to die anyway.

With all those weenies you have to sac, maybe Switcheroo.

The new set has creatures with "Fabricate" which would fit right in.

JimmyInferno on Jalira Knows What She Wants

DarkRequiem still hunting for either whale or palinchron, but I am playtesting some rather big changes, and a silly card, which with Jalira, can be so one sided.

To start, lands are now at 35, with now only 23 islands. I had more in originally in case there was more to add. You're right about the Myrs, so I am not using mana dorks. Land editions include Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Lonely Sandbar and Remote Isle. This is so I can thin my deck out and fetch land, albeit tapped, and get some shuffling happening.

Thopter Spy Network is in (finally found one) along with Myr Battlesphere for polymorph targets which will yield nothing but good stuff, also testing Clone Legion as my group has a very consistent and strong The Mimeoplasm reanimator deck.

Sky Diamond is in as another mana rock, I am looking for a spare Thran Dynamo and Training Grounds to add/mitigate mana costs.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is a powerhouse all game and I finally got one, and nothing but huge success with her so far for some control and potential ramp. Also for control, adding the new card Imprisoned in the Moon because it is such a strong card.

The last card I added which is hilarious and also rather strong with Jalira, is Shared Fate. Now everyone plays someone else' deck, but when I polymorph a creature with Jalira, it comes from my deck. This probably won't stick around but I am pumped to try it out.

To make room for these I had to make some serious cuts: Spelljack, Keiga, the Tide Star, Fool's Demise, Chasm Skulker, Stormsurge Kraken, Colossal Whale, Pentavus and 3x Islands

Arby_Q on What is your favorite commander?

Prime Speaker Zegana: One of the few commanders that does its thing on cast. Always included Stormsurge Kraken and Gigapede.
Karametra, God of Harvests: It's just lands and creatures. Don't worry about it.
Progenitus: 5 color draw-go. 30 instants and very consistent, without mana from nonland sources of course. Permananents are for scrubs.

I've found that big creatures with hexproof (or shroud) and/or indestructible work really well with Phenax. It helps guarantee that they live long enough to do their mill stuff.

Things like Tromokratis and Stormsurge Kraken would be a solid fit.

Ik zie dat je best wel wat weg milt aan beide kanten. Misschien is een beetje extra reanimation leuk. Mijn voorkuer gaat uit naar Palace Siege.

Omnibian maakt alleen een creature 3/3. Hij behoud zijn abilities.

Evolve is leuk alleen heb jij naar mijn mening niet genoeg creatures om je guy te evolven. Als je meer reanimate erin doet dan kan het wat worden. Dan kan je ook meerdere evolve guys in doen.

Ik zou Vraska the Unseen vervangen door Teferi, Temporal Archmage omdat hij card draw geeft en je kan helpen met mana door zijn -1 abilitie.

Zelf vind ik de Lieutenant abilities altijd leuk in commander decks. Demon of Wailing Agonies en Stormsurge Kraken lijken me hier wel leuk.

Als je wilt counter gebruik dan Kira, Great Glass-Spinner om je creatures te beschermen.

Als ik dit deck zie mis ik Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Je kan hem wel begrijpen neem ik aan.
