Tidespout Tyrant Discussion

rache on Would I ever?

6 days ago

Getting into legacy and plan on running reanimator. My creature selection is pretty standard running 4 Griselbrand 4 Chancellor of the Annex 1 Iona, Shield of Emeria 1 Sire Of Insanity and 1 Tidespout Tyrant. My question, is there ever a scenario where I'm on the play and would be better off reanimating Griselbrand rather than Iona or Sire?

Ancestral Statue targets itself with its etb and goes infinite with Animar due to eventually costing nothing to cast. Primordial Sage type draw and Palinchron type land untap you want as much of as possible. This deck does better the more you're able to juggle mana and card draw and this is the reason people have suggested Tidespout Tyrant, so you can abuse etb/cast triggers over and over.

IAmTheWraith on Which commander to build?

You technically didn't even answer the question asked by the author, so let me pick up the slack:

I think that if you plan on building cheap, both decks have really good options, but Riku is just more flexible. He lets you build spell based or creature based, or a little of both and he isn't tribal dependant. Copying big spells like Time Stretch or a creature that wins you the game like Biovisionary or Tidespout Tyrant feel less infinite combo-y and really more synergistic.

But, if you do want something more linear, Inalla, Archmage Ritualist can be a great commander to build and can be really fun if built correctly.

The decision is ultimately yours, but I hope my feedback helps

Cyberseb you win with value ! With Myojin of Seeing Winds you draw tons of cards, with Myojin of Night's Reach every opponents discard his hand, with Tidespout Tyrant if you draw enough cards, you can clean the board every turn. (look at this stax version of cEDH channel

With Jodah I think you have to choose between the way of "spellsliging" or "creature". Than, you don't need to have a combo to kill all your opponents, just find some stax effects, some way to remove their permanents every turn. In my deck, i run a spellslinging (and less competitive) theme. With sunbirds invocation, Swarm Intelligence, Paradox Engine, Vial Smasher the Fierce, Omniscience. I run 10 wrath, Enter the Infinite with some Time Reversal effects.

@griffstick: Irony; I never truly needed a tribe for this deck anyway; & if I did, I'd once again go through my "Minority Confirmity" (Liking something nobody else usually would.), & not do either Eldrazi, or Ixalan Merfolk. Thanks though.

Anyway, I hope I don't have to cut a Magus just for the original (Candelabra of Tawnos in particular is expensive as crap for me... X/ & to think I can handle most rocks...), that said, I wonder what cards to cut in advance. Genesis Hydra isn't the same as the origin it was based on as it only nets one card. 1card. Fascination is Group Hug; Yuck. 2down. Stream of Life is good for Infinite Life, but useless in competitive play. 3down. Kindred Summons as this isn't Tribal Based. 4down. Fungal Behemoth = Why did I even throw this in? 5down. Altered Ego is to costly, & I could find better Clones anyway. 6down. Several other things include Gilder Bairn + Paradise Mantle + Training Grounds, & Aluren + Dream Stalker + Tidespout Tyrant are really clunky as 3 card combos. One less, & it would've been fine for now. 12down.

I'll keep these as arxhives until I can find 2 card variants for both combos...

I really like your deck and admire your desire to make inexpensive edh decks. That being said I do believe there are some ways you could improve this deck without breaking the budget.

While you do have plenty of board wipe effects I notice that you only have a few single target removal spells. Board wipes are great but the problem is the fact that they are sorcery speed. The ability to react on your opponents turn is invaluable so I would highly recommend adding one or two more instant speed removal spells. Some notable ones would be

I also think there are some counterspell's you would be better off for running that are pretty cheap.

  • Sinister Sabotage is basically a Cancel with upside and still pretty cheap.
  • Rewind is almost free in the late game.
  • Foil is a budget Force of Will that would fit great in your deck given your high island count.
  • Arcane Denial is just a solid counter spell in EDH since it replaces itself and the advantage it gives your opponent is mitigated by the multiplayer format.
  • I would also recommend running Forbid since you seem to draw so many cards but this one is a little more pricey.
Of all your counterspells I do believe that any of these would be better than Cancel,Mana Leak, or Spell Pierce

The only other general improvement I would recommend would be try to add some dual lands. Even if they come into play tapped, dual lands do wonders to help a deck perform at its best. Some really budget ones I'd recommend are.

And since you do have such a robust instant package I would also recommend considering running Tidespout Tyrant as another finisher type card.

I really do like your deck and what you have made so far, but I would like you to at least consider these options to further improve your deck.

I haven't gotten around to buying Oracle of Mul Daya, for the time being Mina and Denn, Wildborn is a filler. I really like Tidespout Tyrant and I will definitely consider finding a spot for it.

Primal Surge is a great card and if I do decide to use a noncreature spell, that will be it. I like the way the deck has been performing so far, so at least for now im gonna leave it out. Thanks for the suggestions!
