Tezzeret's Gambit Discussion

lagotripha on ral zarek no more turns need help

3 days ago

Aight, the big question- are you an aggro deck that combos out ral zarek? Are you U/R midrange? Are you a control deck that just repeat ults ral and hits with an Invisible Stalker?

At the moment you've got the kind of low cost instants and sorceries that speak to a Stormchaser Mage tribal deck, but the components can be swapped around in that to do a lot of cool things.

You can put together a proleferate list with Thrummingbird/Tezzeret's Gambit/Skyship Plunderer with Cloudfin Raptor,Astral Cornucopia,Braid of Fire and other shenanigans. Ulting planeswalkers every turn is a good way to win.

You could even build a true Fiery Gambit deck where you just pray and flip coins.

Ther big thing is to look at the restof the deck that isn't Ral and decide what the plan to support him is. Is it all counterspells? Multiple mana generating artifacts that abuse his +1? Burn that threatens his -2?

+1 for walkers!

Love the list, could Tezzeret's Gambit see play here?

I love the deck! Maybe add in some proliferate, like Thrummingbird or Tezzeret's Gambit, just for that extra energy. You could add in Aether Theorist or Glimmer of Genius for some card advantage.

Hey, looking at your list, it is clearly higher budget than my list. SO keep that in mind if you compare it to mine, because cards like Asceticism and Demonic Tutor and stuff are definitely great inclusions.

Just looking at your list however, it does seem like you are fairly light on card draw. I have found that card draw is probably the single most important thing in a game of EDH, and I think most players would agree with me. Since you are going tall with your creatures by using +1/+1 counters, consider cards like Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise which draw you cards based on the strength of your greatest creature. Tezzeret's Gambit is also really good, and I personally run Ob Nixilis Reignited for repeated card draw and removal (which you also seem to be a little lacking on).

Another thing is that your mana base seems a little stretched by running all four of the depletion lands (Peat Bog, Saprazzan Skerry, etc) as well as all four of the filter lands (Mystic Gate, Fetid Heath, etc). If this mana base has been working for you no problem, then stick with it. However, if it is has been playing a little slow, consider getting rid of a few of the depletion lands for some faster lands like shocks or fetch lands (Verdant Catacombs, Overgrown Tomb, etc. These cards are out of my price range personally). You can also probably cut two lands since 35-37 is the normal amount, and slot in both a Cultivate and a Kodama's Reach which are both phenomenal ramp spells in green.

There also seems to be some confusion over the theme of your deck, I would try to focus it more in the +1/+1 counter aspect of the deck. Cards like Sterling Grove, Suppression Field, and Muldrotha, the Gravetide don't really help your strategy that well and I think you would find your deck is able to interact more if you slotted in removal spells like Cyclonic Rift, Anguished Unmaking, Return to Dust, Swords to Plowshares, and Path of Exile to name a few. I would also consider cutting Argivian Find and Flash for some of the cards in your maybeboard like Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Kalonian Hydra. Some other cuts that I think would be good is getting rid of Verdant Force and Predator Ooze since three green devotion is a lot in 4 colors and they have low impact for their relative costs and speeds. Lastly, if you are going to include Pir, Imaginative Rascal, you really need to include Toothy, Imaginary Friend since drawing either of them tutors the other and Toothy, Imaginary Friend also fixes some of your card draw problem.

I hope this helps you at least a little bit, and I hope you continue enjoying the game and format! Feel free to message me if you want additional advice or have questions; or to ignore me if you don't care. Best of luck!

Vapor snag is decent, since you can bounce your own Venerated Teacher. The problem with level up are that the creatures are bad and venerated teacher does not help a lot, since it is the only enabler. Random proliferate things like Tezzeret's Gambit will help, but for example Knight of Cliffhaven is a Serra Angel for 14 mana. Even with venerated teacher, it still is a Serra Angel for 8 mana.

The only decent level up creature is Halimar Wavewatch that synergizes well with Convincing Mirage-type cards.

I would recommend limiting the level up theme to halimar wavewatch, but if you do get more than those, be aware that the payoff is not substantial.

Dumgoldfish124 on Bird Token/Tribal

47552 Love the idea, really creative! I have some recommendations for you though. Onto the birds!

First, if your play group doesn't mind un-cards, then Crow Storm is quite good. Other then that, Storm Crow itself, despite the memes, is not a bad card and is great in bird tribal. Murder of Crows is a really good finisher as it will deter board wipes and swing for 4 a turn. Mindshrieker is another good finsher. Swan Song and Essence Scatter are both great bird themed counterspells and Wing Shards is a great bird themed spell. Crookclaw Elder is a good draw engine and Impaler Shrike and/or Thieving Magpie add a good bit of draw. Keeper of the Nine Gales adds some great board control and helps disrupt the tempo of your opponent. Augury Owl gives some nice foresight to what is coming up and allows you to change the order or throw away the cards that are not needed. Finally, while not a 'bird bird', Soulcatcher is awesome at killing the opponent after some sacrifice shenanigans.

I also have some general recommendations for the deck. Firstly, Culling Dais is awesome. It can tap and sacrifice a bird if that bird is destroyed, turning it into another card for later on. It gets even more ridiculous with Thrummingbird increasing counters. Deluge gives all of your birds pseudo-unblockable and Gravitational Shift beefs up your birds while your opponent's ground troops get weaker. Kangee, Aerie Keeper pumps the power and toughness of all your birds while Aven Mimeomancer makes your tokens bigger. Door of Destinies does similar things to Kangee. Tezzeret's Gambit is a nice draw spell that also adds counters. Glory stops damage cold. In this deck Grafted Wargear is better then Barbed Battlegear, despite the synergy with Soulcatchers' Aerie. Cataclysm is an awesome board wipe, especially with Soulcatchers' Aerie. Masako the Humorless is nasty surprise for your opponent, especially with Glory chilling in the graveyard. Finally, with land I recommend using Nimbus Maze and Sejiri Refuge. I also recommend having 20 lands, but if 18 works, by all means, keep using 18.

I hope this helps! If you would like any help with cuts, just ask, I'll be happy to help!
