I had a question about Tamiyo, Field Researchers first ability, it doesn't say target so can I choose an opponents creature that has hexproof or shroud? I'm pretty sure I can but my playgroup is divided on the ruling.

First I would like to welcome you on T/O!

Perhaps you have seen it already; this place is a great community where great decks and ideas come to life. If you ever need help with any deck, then there are usually several people willing to help you. Just ask :)

While I am here, let me give you a few suggestions for your deck:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O!


DrLitebur on Atraxa Deck Help!!

With my own personal Atraxa build, I have a Superfriends build, with a few support creatures mixed in, and some of the Oaths. The deck is probably the most fun I have ever had playing an EDH deck even if I have to keep up with a crap-ton of loyalty counters. Ultimating Tamiyo, Field Researcher, or Ajani Steadfast the second turn they are on the field really messes with people's heads. I have done that, and watched people's head spin as they just...knew the game was over, but they had to try.

@gabrjaws I am thinking about playing more Sylvan Advocate. The price of the card is the only issue (and that I don't own any more then 2).

I also don't want to play many more creatures since Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper is the main focus of this deck. I have tried playing with Earthen Arms but the awaken cost is very high is my biggest issue. I never have a problem with finishing my opponent so the extra 2 counters don't matter too much.

Tamiyo, Field Researcher is certainly a great addition I love to play with her and she fits very nice in the deck.

After a few matches I love the deck. I make a lot of mistakes, it is really not easy to pilot the deck. My thoughts so far:

  • 4 Heart of Kiran is probably too much, going down to 3 for now

  • 4 Longtusk Cub is a must. This is our synergy payoff (Attune, Miner, Refiner), we always want it, and almost everyone is running 4 Fatal Push, so we need pressure after the first is killed

  • I am not sure about Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

  • I am also not sure about Blossoming Defense. I never had it when I needed it (thought it would have been a blowout), and it is quite bad in topdeck mode.

I made more changes in the sideboard:

  • added 4th Tamiyo, Field Researcher for the BG matchups -> BG is the most popular deck, and they cannot beat this card

  • added 3 Negate and 2 Disallow --> these together with the Quellers are excellent against control and Saheeli Combo decks, also great against Metalwork Colossus decks

  • added 2 Natural Obsolescence --> this is great agains everything (Mardu, artifact heavy BG lists, Aetherflux combo, Marvel decks, and Metalwork Colossus

  • added Confiscation Coup - great against any creature based decks and is always a 3 for 1 (they lose something, you get something and they need to remove that something somehow)

I have not played against the Saheeli combo yet (which will probably be banned in a few weeks anyways, so not a big deal), I assume that is not an easy one. We have to put pressure on the board early to prevent them from casting a T3 Saheeli. If we can do this, I ghink we are good. After sideboard we can more rely on counterspells, so we should be fine.

In general I would like to have access to main deck Negate and Disallow but I simply do not want to cut anything.

  • for Tamiyo, Field Researcher in my experience the +1 ability is good if you have to block creatures attacking your walkers and will get a draw this way. and yes, unremovable omniscience will really win games
