Thoughtseize Discussion

Darkshadow327 on Haunt of Hightower: Eating Hands Since Dec 16, '18

This is a really cool deck. The strategy seems thought out and it looks really fun to play. Thoughtseize or Duress could be decent if you wanted to force an opponent to discard their best card. Liliana Vess and Grave Betrayal could be another way to take advantage of the creatures in the grave (not to mention Liliana Vess also helps with the discard).

All in all, pretty neat deck. +1

I've been testing Pendelhaven and it's very good. I'm gonna try 2, but more than that might cause mana issues if more than one come up. Mana can be tight with a bad draw using only 22 lands.

Inquisition is extremely cheap removal. It can be pretty decisive early game, but Abrupt Decay is pretty good here too. Thoughtseize is strong, but a little problematic for burn and aggro matchups. Mutagenic Growth is quite good but it would be replacing Rancor or Might of Old Krosa both of which are also very good. It has a surprise and early game advantage over Might, whereas Might could mean more damage/protection, and Rancor sticks around and is hard to get rid of, and trample is a game winner too.

I might run Vines of Vastwood in place of Blossoming Defense though. It's main use is defensive, and for that purpose they are both 1 green. The +4/+4 might give it better versatility.

There's no room for Tainted Strike for what probably amounts to a gimmick, though it could warrant testing.

Hey, commenting on here with a list of things you might want to try out.

These aren't meant to all be directly added, more of just things to keep an eye on as you test and stuff. You might want to try to make room for Leonin Squire, because it's really good with LED and Razaketh combo, and Mox Diamond because it's just a powerful card .

Removal

Golden Demise

Fragmentize

Massacre

Collective Brutality - bin raz/boon and hurt your opponent

Thoughtseize - bin razaketh/ boonweaver or a proactive counterspell

Cabal Therapy - sac outlet or same as above

Stax

Ethersworn Canonist and Eidolon of Rhetoric - good against storm and foodchain

Linvala, Keeper of Silence - good against green

Sadistic Hypnotist

Iona, Shield of Emeria - reanimated stax

Void Winnower - more reanimated stax

Card Advantage

Scroll Rack - Combos with Land Tax

Ad Nauseam - If you get the cmc low enough this is an option. Just don't go below 8 life

Combo

Ashnod's Altar - Cheap sac that gets around cursed totem

Leonin Squire - Recurs LED when you're going off with razaketh

Ramp

Lotus Petal - Fast mana

Weathered Wayfarer - fetches your urborg / coffers

Mox Diamond - powerful

Mox Opal - good with 15 + artifacts

Looks sweet dude and I hope it plays well

First of all, what's your budget?

Then, since you want to go really fast, making big as soon as possible your creatures and dealing tons of damages immediately, why don't you consider Kiln Fiend or Monastery Swiftspear ?

Then, other "must have in this type of deck", in my opinion are: Mutagenic Growth (who cares if you lose 2, your creature gets bigger) and Apostle's Blessing

Now, cards I personally don't like in this deck:

Some cards I'd consider, but are not budget: shock and fetch lands, Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Blood Moon (in sideboard)

Really not a fan of Resourceful Return when you have this few artifacts.

I also think you should cut a bit down an the sheer volume of your lategame combo. With this many pieces it could easily end up clogging up your game-plan early on, leading to a loss before you get properly set up.

Meybe get those Gifted Aetherborn to a 4-of, and get a few Kalastria Highborn , maybe even get a Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet .

Also, Inquisition of Kozilek and/or Thoughtseize are key to beating combo decks.

IAmTheWraith on Inalla- Wizard Control- 100% Competitive

1 week ago

Just a tip: The Competitive meter doesn't measure the deck's power level as a whole. It measures, card by card, the individual power level. This also does not account for the high power cap of the commander format. With that being said, this deck is way too slow to truly be "100% Competitive". The interaction is sub-par for a high level edh deck, and some of the choices don't suit a multiplayer setting well, if at all. Things like Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and Gitaxian Probe do nothing but give you information, and in the discard spells case, a 1-3 trade, with your other opponents not being affected.

Chasmolinker on So, You Wanna Play Jund Yea? (Budget)

Thanks for the love TheGreatSlob! This deck has a budget of approx. $250. I was noticing the light removal package today. It’s typical of Full blown Jund to have more removal and disruption than creatures. This build however is more aggressive and relies on creature synergies more than the usual variants. I do agree though that there is room for more removal. I would start by cutting a Bloodhall Ooze or 2 for either Thoughtseize, Duress or Abrupt Decay.

Chasmolinker I will definitely add Nihil Spellbomb, smells like some serious card advantage. It would also help minimize lifeloss with Thoughtseize. I would add Batterskull but it would seriously hurt if flipped by Pain Seer, so for now it’ll go in the maybeboard. Also if you have any other ideas for a Dark Confidant replacement I’d love to hear them because Pain Seer is really awkward to use since you essentially have to swing every turn
