Sygg, River Cutthroat Discussion

Both my Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Sygg, River Cutthroat decks are salivating at the idea of including Kheru Mind-Eater.

Sygg, River Cutthroat might work well as card draw in the 99 since you have lots of unblockable cards.

Ok, it took awhile, but I found the Sygg, River Cutthroat list that was brought up back in february and needs bumped to tier 3: The Progress Engine. There was quite a bit of work done on the deck in chat if you want to go back and look, but it seems good. I also need to dig and find the Tana and Tymna stax list for the partner discussion, cause it was considered one of the best stax decks in the format when it was posted and then no one added it cause it was posted here instead of on the other list.

Pieguy396 on Upheaval

1 month ago

Hello! Recently, I was thinking about the card Upheaval , and its place in Commander. I have two decks that it might fit in, Maelstrom Wanderer and Sygg, River Cutthroat , and I would like some advice on which deck, if either, Upheaval belongs in.

In Maelstrom Wanderer , Upheaval makes for an excellent card to cascade into, leaving me with a 7/5 general with haste as the only permanent (even lands) on the board, which should allow me to clean up the game pretty quickly.

In Sygg, though, I run both Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower, both of which give me no maximum hand size, and thus negate Upheaval 's drawback that most of the other players will likely feel - having to discard down to hand size at the end of the turn.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Pieguy396 on How do control decks win?

1 month ago

Most commander decks just win with the "out-value" plan. The idea is that if you can do everything more efficiently than everyone else, you will win. I have a Queen Marchesa deck that tries to keep everything other than my own stuff off the board so that I can chip away my opponents' life totals with a large threat turn after turn. My Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck slowly drains eveybody with Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat effects so I eventually win. My Sygg, River Cutthroat deck establishes an early board presence with an evasive threat or three, gives it something broken to hold like a Quietus Spike, then controls the long game with countermagic and removal. There are tons of options. Also, remember that your commander can be your win condition if you build it right.

Pieguy396 on Help with UB Sygg EDH

Hello! I recently built a Sygg, River Cutthroat EDH deck that revolves around establishing an early board presence with some saboteur effects and unblockable creatures, then using countermagic, removal, hand attack, and Ninjutsu cards to control the long game.

I'm looking for any feedback you can offer (except about my land base; I know it needs work and I'm working on getting better lands), but specifically any suggestions for cheap removal or counterspells that I can add would be particularly helpful, as I don't have nearly as many as I would like. Thank you!
