Thraben Doomsayer Discussion

Suns_Champion on Discussion about tutors/transmute for combo ...

6 days ago

Hello all! I'm trying to find good tutors for my combo deck without having to spend $40 or $60 on a Vampiric Tutor or Demonic Tutor.

The deck in question is IntruZur Alarm | Zur EDH.

Zur the Enchanter helps a ton in the tutor department, but he can't grab everything.

The combo pieces I need to grab are: Intruder Alarm, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Steward of Solidarity, Thraben Doomsayer, and to a lesser extent: Stonybrook Schoolmaster, and Necrotic Ooze.

The tutors I have so far are: Diabolic Tutor, Razaketh's Rite, Recruiter of the Guard, Open the Armory, Demonic Collusion, Enlightened Tutor. Please note that I'm only running the handful of $10 tutors because I already had them.

Now, this seems like a decent tutor package to me. But I wanted to know if there are any other budget tutors that might be slightly better. Also I suppose a good question would be: How many tutors should I run? Is 6 enough? Too many? Hopefully looking at the decklist and my beginnings of a primer will help you determine that.

Additionally, I've come across the Transmute ability and wanted to know what you all thought of it. Sub-optimal of course, but budget. Clutch of the Undercity, Dimir House Guard, Dimir Infiltrator, Dimir Machinations, Drift of Phantasms, Muddle the Mixture, Perplex, and Shred Memory all get one or two of my pieces, and have the added flexibility of being normal spells. Are any of these worth running over, say, Demonic Collusion or Razaketh's Rite?

Would love to hear any thoughts/opinions! Thanks in advance!

Hey, you asked for my advice on your Zur deck. You've put a lot of time and effort into it and the deck description is easy to read and understand very nice work. I've never seen Zur used with Alarm as a win condition combo. Very creative idea, well done, upvoted. For a first deck with combo you've gone combo crazy!

The idea is great the problem is the combos need to be streamlined, too many combo cards not enough synergy between all cards in the deck and not enough universal good Commander cards. You don't need to jam all the possible combos into a deck it's overkill. Consider trimming Combo #1, Combo #2 and cutting Combo #3? A lot of combo cards you're playing are only good with other combo pieces as part of a combo. These cards are not good by themselves or have synergy with the rest of the cards in the deck other than the combo they go with. Because of all the combo cards I see problems with playing a normal game of Commander.

Your deck is very creative as a first deck with combo, you have a good grasp on the archetype. But you're going combo crazy which in my opinion will hinter gameplay much more than help it. It's more practical to pick a few combos that include cards that have overall good synergy with the entire deck not to use so many cards just because they're part of a combo.

Good luck with your deck.

Thraben Doomsayer OUT, Craterhoof Behemoth IN - Doomsayer is a win-more card - it does not work on an empty board.

Suns_Champion on More combo help!

Hello again!

I'm making a Intruder Alarm combo deck in Esper colors, and I need some consistency/more combos to think about. I have a secondary part of the combo which is Stonybrook Schoolmaster. I need some free tap outlets for him.

1) most importantly, I need free token producers. Bloodline Keeper, Steward of Solidarity, and Thraben Doomsayer are the ones I've seen so far. Hopefully there are more!

2) free tap outlets for Stonybrook Schoolmaster. Examples: Hermetic Study, Psionic Gift, Drowner of Secrets or Azami, Lady of Scrolls. I'd prefer damage like the first two, but mana, card draw, mill, more creatures, etc, all work too!

I'm also trying to find a Impact Tremors in Esper but am having trouble.

Thanks in advance!

Also just the classic Steward of Solidarity, plus Thraben Doomsayer.

Intruder alarm combos with almost anything. Find as the combination that has the most cards that siglehandedly combo with alarm. I personally think esper is the combination to go for, since you have access to Zur the Enchanter to tutor IA with.

Thraben Doomsayer and Bloodline Keeper and anything that puts creatures into play for free is awesome.

If you're doing anything with tokens, you need Anointed Procession. You also need more generators, like Captain's Call, Gather the Townsfolk, Increasing Devotion, Nomads' Assembly, Secure the Wastes, or Thraben Doomsayer.

IF you redesign your deck to produce lots of tokens, you'll need Cathars' Crusade, super handy and can build up really quickly.
