The Wanderer Discussion

Gonbarru on Aminatou. Working on it.

It could also combo with The Wanderer (another -subpar- blinking target), but probably that would be dedicating too much resources to a secondary combo. Afterall, Altar of the Brood + Felidar Guardian is sooo much easier to pull off. But hey, we are here to have fun, not to win any tournaments!!! And who doesnt love a crazy combo ^^

Davihelio on Marchesa, Political Queen of Pillows

4 weeks ago

Im going to copy this coment in both precociousapprentice and MegaMatt13 since both their primers for Queen Marchesa were the inspiration to make my own list and I want as much people as I can who is discussing the archetype to discuss this idea. Also excuse my poor grammar please, Im not really good at english.

First of all, thanks you both for making those primers. This is easily my favourite EDH deck and I always have a lot of fun playing it, and most people enjoy playing against it too. The only thing that bothers me about this deck (the strategy in general, not this specific list) is that I sometimes have a lot of trouble closing out games where I am in a clear leading position, or that my aikido cards, even if they do a ton of damage, sometimes fall short of winning the game and its difficult to trick the same opponent into making the same mistake twice.

But I have seen a few cards in WAR that may be really powerfull in this strategy, and I think they have some synergy with common stuff we are already running.

The first card that sparked my interest is The Wanderer . I firmly believe that this card have some serious potential in Mardu colors because it adds consistency to effects that prevent/halves non-combat damage (or damage in general) like Delaying Shield or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . But clearly, we are not short on pillowfort effects right? So whats the big deal? I'll be there in a moment.

I think that the card that gave me more wins was good ol Insurrection . And I think that Command the Dreadhorde has the potential to be a virtual second, cheaper and slighly worse copy. Be aware that this can resurrect creatures and planeswalkers from ANY graveyard. The most important drawback is that it can do a lot of damage to you, but with Gisela, Delaying Shield, The Wanderer and similar effects we can negate or minimizate most of the damage.

This also opens to run cards like Personal Sanctuary and being able to use mass burn cards like Price of Progress or Molten Disaster or Rolling Earthquake , this last two also double as board wipes.

And it may also open up for fun sheanigans with cards like Arcbond or Repercussion without risking killing ourselves.

I think I will try to adapt my deck to this burn subtheme while trying to keep the political/aikido main theme, but I would love to hear what everyone thinks on this. Thank you for reading!

Also Command the Dreadhorde and The Wanderer combo would be hilarious to pull off here.

Rhadamanthus on Wanderer and paying life

No, it won't work that way. Though taking damage usually results in losing life, damage and life loss aren't the same thing. The Wanderer will only protect you from effects that specifically say they deal damage, like Command the Dreadhorde .

Does The Wanderer stop you from taking damage when you pay life to an Athreos, God of Passage or Bolas's Citadel ?

What about Solar Blaze or Deafening Clarion for alternative board sweepers? You'd still get to draw cards off of Liliana if you have any creature tokens on board. The Wanderer isn't a bad idea either, since she prevents non-combat damage on you and other permanents.
