Tidal Force Discussion

Rzepkanut on Call a Plumber - Your cards are clogging the drain

2 weeks ago

Hey, nice mill deck :) always wanted to build one of these. One of my favorite words to find on a magic card is "whenever". With that in mind I got a few card ideas to share:

Sewer Nemesis, Hedron Crab, Riddlekeeper, Illusionist's Bracers, Paradox Engine, Hollowsage, Arbiter of the Ideal, Tidal Force, Dramatic Reversal, Intellectual Offering, Breaking Wave, Rings of Brighthearth

Happy gathering!

You can go infinite with Stasis if you use Ral Zarek, Tidal Force or a few others I can't remember. I'd suggest Meishin, the Mind Cage to make all creatures useless. Silent Arbiter can control combat pretty well. Wall of Shards can help you raise other players' life totals.

CaptSillva on Babie's first jhoira

11 months ago

Well the thing to keep in mind with Jhoira is that she is actually considered a top tier commander. This is because the commander format tends to be very slow and top heavy. It is not unusual for games to go on for 10+ turns. Which gives you more than enough time to benefit from Jhoira's effect.

With that said, in order for her to be good you need to refocus on the long game. Because in this format burst or short time gain type of effects are considered quite weak unless they completely change the state of the game. Rather than Ritual effects you do indeed want to focus on mana adding artifacts since they stick around and will be more beneficial in the long run.

Alright here is a short list of strong threats you could try. Omniscience, Tidal Force, Inkwell Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Molten Primordial, Tyrant's Familiar, Akroma, Angel of Fury, Magmatic Force, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Scourge of the Throne, Charmbreaker Devils, Consecrated Sphinx, Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, Frost Titan, Inferno Titan, Deadeye Navigator, Stormsurge Kraken, and Arcanis the Omnipotent.

westonawhite on Vorel and the counter doublers

I have a similar deck except it is much more centered around hydras. For protection, you can add Champion's Helm. It gives Vorel protection from opponents but lets you untap him. It's pretty much a Swiftfoot Boots. Also, i agree with others, Tidal Force is just too slow. You can replace it with Fatestitcher if you want. Also a pet card of mine, (probaly a bit too slow though) is Ludevic's Test Subject. Just a thought.

Can anyone think of any other protection that would be good?

Gamerjfire, Hey thanks for the suggestions.

I currently have Leyline of Anticipation in the deck

Will probably add in Shielding Plax later today when I get home and can see what I'll have to cut.

I agree that Tidal Force seems slow but I would like to try him out in the deck before cutting him out.

I like the mana battery's because they are the same as lands, I can tap for one mana or I can charge it up.

Riverdare(almost tryed linking you as a card!), Hey thanks for the suggestions but as of right now I dont know what is lackbuster in this deck to cut for Death's Presence, while Reincarnation looks cool I dont know how well it would be from my deck as some of my creatures have alt cost you have to pay for them to enter and stay alive. Ill look at the deck while playing it and think about adding it in.

Can anyone think of any other protection that would be good? I would like at least 6 diffrent cards to protect himI know I had other things I wanted to say but lunch break is over so I'll finish my comment after work.

Sword of the Paruns, while expensive as well, is another way to untap Vorel.

Shielding Plax is another form of hexproof that provides a card when it comes into play, that way you can protect your Vorel.

I am cautious about the mana batteries, Green Mana Battery and Blue Mana Battery. I see why you have them, but I wonder if it would be better to have either ramp to grab the lands that do the same thing, or tutors to find Gemstone Array.

I agree that Tidal Force seems a bit slow for this deck, I would consider a flash mechanic, that way you can manipulate the game easier on the opponent's turns than you would with Tidal Force.Things like Leyline of Anticipation or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir.
Yes, Teferi only affects creatures but it also causes your opponents to have to slow themselves down to fit your schedule.

Helix Pinnacle Is alternate wincon with all of my mana storage, get 50 mana on a storage then play helix double mana onstorage and win in that turn.

Lightning Greaves I want to avoid shroud due to the fact I can not untap him with any abilitys or spells.

Tidal Force is untap every upkeep so I can untap my mana rock, a blocker, or even vorel.

Scute Mob is a 1 drop that Can get 4 counters a turn, so even without doubling him he will get big in a turn or two, so I can focus on my big guy and let him get huge by himself and become a second threat.

Plaxcaster Frogling I'll probably add back cutting out Thassa, God of the Sea For it.

And also I have some protection in the deck already such as,Pemmin's Aura, Swiftfoot Boots. Looks like I took out a bunch of the survival I had started off with in the deck. Can you name some more cards that would be good? Anything with remove a counter, and target creature gains shroud/hexprof/indistructable?
