kingtuf on Glissa the Traitor needs some help

5 days ago

Any Glissa, the Traitor deck rude enough to play Mindslaver should be running Forbidden Orchard. These three cards form a perma-lock on a single player so long as you are not disrupted. Also, consider looking into some self mill. With Glissa, your graveyard becomes a toolbox/hand-extension that you really want to see filled. Dakmor Salvage, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are all cheap dredgers that can turn one card draw into 2-5 in the graveyard. Hell, even Golgari Grave-Troll is cheap now that it's banned in modern. If you want to break the bank a bit, Life from the Loam and good utility lands like Strip Mine, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Cabal Coffers are all very happy to live in this deck. If you're looking for cards to drop, I know they can be fun and are a little safer to use with Glissa's ability, but cards like Nemesis Mask and Viridian Longbow are so, so much better off as instant speed removal spells like Putrefy or Windgrace's Judgment. Golgari removal spells hit a wider range of targets and many run at instant speed, making them far more versatile than the cheeky equipment shenanigans Glissa can do. Remember, all she cares about is seeing a creature die, she doesn't need to be the one to do it! Hope something here helps you out. I have a 75% Glissa deck that runs several of the cards I mentioned here and I have to say she is easily my favorite commander. Best of luck!

CommanderTech on Salvaging Boros - A Deep Dive (1.1)

Version 1.1 - Replaced Wear/Tear with Chaos Warp: Better flexibility for more demanding situations.

Replaced Phyrexian Atlar with Eldrazi Displacer: Much more synergy with all my ETB creatures, and the colored mana from Phyrexian Atlar does not work well with Displacer.

Replaced 1x Mountain and 1x Plains with Stranglehold and Strip Mine. More control plus mine works well with displacer.

Replaced 1x Mountain and 1x plains with Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard. More tutors never hurt.

usaDiabetic hey :)

Mono green is a bit out of my comfort zone but I think maybe you could run a few things like Chord of Calling or maybe Finale of Devastation since you’ve got the mana to cast big creatures anyway.

Also, I’d cut Ghost Quarter for Strip Mine I just think it’s better

Also maybe Worldspine Wurm +1’d like the list,

I have been playing this deck for about a week now. The only issue I see is how to deal with Glacial Chasm would you recommend Boomerang because it's another 2cmc target, or just Strip Mine?

Or is the best play to win through JtMS ult?

Make sure you run Strip Mine and/or Wasteland to get rid of a pesky Homeward Path

dingusdingo on Fish Hulk and Najeela

4 weeks ago

First post best post. Which one is better is meta dependent, due to the nature of how they are built

  • Najeela does worse against decks with combat stoppers, TnT does worse against decks with draw stoppers.
  • TnT is a 4 color mana base, Najeela is 5. Even with the additional mana fixing Najeela runs, your mana base is going to be more vulnerable to getting sniped by Wasteland and Strip Mine. Both are roughed up pretty bad by Moon effects and Back to Basics.
  • TnT is grindier, Najeela has ability to threaten wins off of just commander.

Either way you're playing fish hulk, so life isn't going to be very hard for you in general. Both are great options for being the commander. Just be aware you'll have a massive target on your back with either commander, even at competitive tables, for playing the tier 0 builds.

It’s actually one of my favorite removal cards because it hits any permanent. Heck, one time I hit Sorin Markov with it and another dude Strip Mine d him lol

robcastpwnz on Korvold, Fae-Cursed King- lands Matter

1 month ago

Actually I thought about it a little bit and I'll offer up a few other suggestions. I think the deck looks pretty good but maybe adding in a few more cards that destroy lands would work well. I don't know how your meta reacts to land destruction though. I know that my meta is ok with a few land destruction spells but mass land destruction is looked down upon. Adding Strip Mine , Wasteland or Field of Ruin would probably be okay. Playing extra lands on your turn is probably super important to your strategy so I think that Sakura-Tribe Scout or Skyshroud Ranger would be pretty nice. If you could get your hands on Oracle of Mul Daya that would be superb but I know it is pretty expensive these days. Tunneling Geopede could help get some damage output on the board. Sylvan Safekeeper offers some protection and can get lands in your graveyard if you need them there. I've always wanted to make a land matters deck but getting all the pieces together is too expensive for my blood. Good luck!!
