Tarnished Citadel Discussion

Calyptic on The Alliance of Kjeldor

Updated! I'm loving the suggestions so far. I definitely would agree this deck could use a few more wincons. Mirror Entity will make a lovely addition to the team, as well at Ankh of Mishra, Staff of Nin and Tarnished Citadel so i don't have to rely on the enemy to make my tokens for me.

The only real thing I can see being needed for this deck maybe besides wincons, (which would aid wincons as well) are a few card tutors, I think? The card draws I've added will help with that too.

Tarnished Citadel does wonders.

Also mine back in the day had Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Karma as a soldier making combo.

Solid build +1! I run a Sen Triplets deck too. Would you mind taking a look at it and giving me some feed back? Here is the link Girls Get Everything (Sen Triplets EDH). Also, ever consider using Tarnished Citadel?

While side-brewing this deck with less combos, (Don't fret, I won't post it on this site. the glory is all yours.) I came across Tarnished Citadel to pair up with Grand Coliseum.

I'm about 18 cardboard away from being able to play this against friends and foes.

Again, great deck.

Land suggestions :P

There's a bunch of good lands and serve functions, but a bunch of them come in tapped; I'll focus on lands that come in untapped, and can produce any color. The first ones to come to mind are Tarnished Citadel, Rhystic Cave, and Thran Quarry (which is great in creature-heavy decks, like Forbidden Orchard in your deck).

In lower priority, consider Forsaken City, maybe Transguild Promenade (which is just name of your Rupture Spire, but I'd rather have one of the vivid lands), Pillar of the Paruns, and Grand Coliseum (the shittier Forbidden City). There's also other lands that give an immediate, one color use, but aren't as stable.. like Aether Hub, Archaeological Dig, Tendo Ice Bridge, Crumbling Vestige, Undiscovered Paradise, and Rainbow Vale.

In addition, I would trade your Gemstone Mine with something like Crystal Quarry or Cascading Cataracts. In a five color deck, you won't be searching for a basic land that much. So consider some ramp that tutors for any land your little heart desires.. like Expedition Map, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Tolaria West, and Crop Rotation.

Hope this helps, I'm always here.

I'd cut the forbidden orchard for something like Tarnished Citadel. That's typically more for like an aggressive deck where you don't normally care if you're giving an opponent a token.

As for the creatures I feel like we can make this a good ol' fashioned hatebear deck, especially with Alesha as the Lieutenant. Dudes like Phyrexian Revoker, Aven Mindcensor, Leonin Arbiter, Mentor of the Meek, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Avalanche Riders etc.

We could even get spicy with a Boonweaver Giant and Pattern of Rebirth combo to essentially play out your deck.

Yes, I want some of those - and Citadel would make a great addition - but don't have the resources to get many new cards for my decks at the moment :)

Tarnished Citadel is on my list along with City of Brass, Grand Coliseum and Nomad Stadium for lands, and Jade Monolith, Staff of Nin, Scepter of Empires and Torture Chamber for atifacts (Acorn Catapult already being in the deck). I also had Rod of Ruin in here until recently, but started to attend EDH tournaments and felt it was suboptimal :)

Oh, and there's the odd Witch Hunter, too.

(Ancient Tomb is totally beyond my budget...)

I also consider some cards that force my opponents to attack, such as Arcum's Whistle, Bullwhip or Oracle en-Vec.

If you have any other propositions, please share them :)
