Tamiyo, the Moon Sage Discussion

Flarhoon13 on Aminatou's Adventures in babysitting the Gatewatch

1 day ago

Yesterday, I got Tamiyo, the Moon Sage to ultimate with Deepglow Skate . By the end of the game, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage had 2054 loyalty and Aminatou had over 500. I was able to abuse that Bubbling Season combo, flickering Deepglow Skate with Aminatou, the Fateshifter and ultimating planeswalkers Ob Nixilis Reignited twice and Ajani Steadfast once as well. Deepglow Skate also proved to be insane with Parallax Wave . Last week, I used Deepglow Skate to ultimate the often otherwise underwhelming Jace, the Living Guildpact . This deck has loads of win conditions and is fast and powerful while also able to control the board. I lost 1 vs. 1 against Najeela but probably could've won if I would've made a better decision on a Liliana Vess search... should've gotten Parallax Wave or Terminus .

If you're going to be tapping a lot of your opponent's creatures, then a fun card to add would be Gideon's Avenger , which can get big fast!

I did want to point out an issue with the plan of the deck: Although I love the concept of an equipped Royal Assassin allowing you to steal a creature, Scythe of the Wretched specifically requires damage to be dealt to the creature, whereas the Assassin doesn't actually deal damage — he just outright destroys. So I'd honestly take out the Scythe, and therefore Open the Armory (since its only target is Scythe).

In their place, aside from Gideon's Avenger, you could consider Siren's Call as a way to mass-kill their side of the board. Gideon Jura costs a couple bucks, but he pairs well with Siren's Call, because you can +2 him to avoid taking any damage in the event that you aren't able to tap down all their creatures. If that's not a concern, then his -2 is another Royal Assassin.

If you truly don't mind spending a bit of money, then 1x Tamiyo, the Moon Sage would be an amazing addition. She can really help refill your hand in the late game.

I am working on a build like this and I dug into a blue super friends theme with some pillow fort. I want to pull off a Jace, Memory Adept and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage combo.

I would really look into Tamiyo, the Moon Sage or Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Doubling Season . Your deck would really benefit from all of these.

For removals, other than what I mentioned in my first comment, I'd suggest taking out:

SynergyBuild on An...Uncoventional commander

Deck sounds sweet, Stasis makes a great lock with is, as does Static Orb, Winter Orb, and some tutorage for those cards in the form of Muddle the Mixture, Enlightened Tutor, etc.

From that base, you could go more into turbo-stasis with Blind Obedience, Tangle Wire, Kismet, and Frozen AEther type cards, stax with Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or permission control with Counterspells, Swords to Plowshares, Terminus, Supreme Verdict, and other control cards.

This could also be backed up be a strong walker plan, think Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Jace, Architect of Thought.

Additionally, Teferi works well without creatures, you could run Humility as one of the harshest anti-creature cards, Cursed Totem to shut off more commanders, etc.

In a playgroup filled with walker commanders, Pithing Needle and Sorcerous Spyglass are great removal, as is anything else that can do similar effects. Suppression Field forces the issue that Stasis asks:

Can you pay for that?

Also, with a stax plan, or a control one in general, Rhystic Study is more powerful than usual, and never forget Mystic Remora! These cards should be pretty good.

Other than that, more cards that fit here are:

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Brago, King Eternal (flickers walkers to reset counters&activations for the turn), Azorius Signet, Cyclonic Rift, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Chrome Mox, Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Swan Song, Path to Exile, Damping Sphere, Rings of Brighthearth (doubles walker activations!), Inspiring Statuary, Sphinx's Revelation, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Return to Dust, Fact or Fiction, Mystical Tutor, Arcane Denial, Teferi's Protection, Rewind, Reality Shift, Tragic Arrogance, Cleansing Nova, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Mind Stone, Sensei's Divining Top, etc.

Recommended adds: Tamiyo, the Moon Sage one of the best walkers in edh... she just does nuts things

Deadeye Navigator flicker djeru, deepglow skate or thalias lancers. Win?

Bitterblossom protect those walkers bro.

Tezzeret the Seeker able to tutor chain veil to the battlefield, and goes infinite with the chain veil. Almost a 1 card win the game combo.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon another all around great card. One of the best ults in the game, and really easy to ult. Even if you don't ult him, he's a selective board wipe or removal/burn.

I'll leave what you cut for these up to you, because alot of the chooves will be largely meta dependent. The rest of the swaps I'm going to recommend are for direct upgrades to cards that are currently in your deck, meaning swap card a for card b. Not saying to cut these to make room for the above cards, unless you feel that's the best choice.

Recommended swaps Cut Day of Judgment Add Supreme Verdict or Wrath of God. Probably Verdict since regeneration isn't super common, but either one is strictly better than day of judgment.

Cut Call the Gatewatch or Mystical Tutor or Enlightened Tutor Add Vampiric Tutor

What really bothers me:

Kruphix, God of Horizons - "No maximum hand size" (hard to get rid of in compare to Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel - I feel like I will draw a lot here) and good way to store crazy amounts of mana made by Gyre Sage when I don't need it.

Prime Speaker Zegana - MASSIVE draw engine, but I'm afraid of her cost. Quite expensive, but also good to reanimate (I can kill her with Retribution of the Ancients just to draw cards again.

Vedalken Orrery - As Foretold lets me cast stuff in my opponents turns, but only instants which is sad :c

Cathars' Crusade - the only downside of it (which is holding me back from putting it right away) is high cost.

Privileged Position - protection for my guys from removal and more importantly - for mana rocks, lands and important stuff like As Foretold, Inexorable Tide etc.

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage - pure value. Each abillity is very good.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor - well...Mind Sculptor. 'Nuff said.
