Tolarian Academy Discussion

zachi on that which has been seelie cannot be unseelie

2 weeks ago

its sad to say, but unless your play group is ok with it, Painter's Servant and Tolarian Academy are banned in commander. Like i said, if you're play group doesnt care, they are solid.

Are you aiming for this to be combo or fairy tribal? There are some good cards for oona to just combo off with, but that comes down to you're preference with decks

Aquamaniac on Sydri - Need Advice

2 weeks ago

I've got a few thoughts. And by a few I mean many. But first, Tolarian Academy is banned.

Comboing in Esper

Mycosynth Lattice gives Sydri the ability to destroy target land for 1 mana of any color. Also combos with Darksteel Forge to make your whole board indestructible.
Salvaging Station + Disciple of the Vault + Seat of the Synod + Sydri, Galvanic Genius = infinite damage. Tap Seat to make Seat a 0/0 creature via Sydri's ability who dies, triggering Disciple's ability and untapping Station. Tap Station to return Seat into play and deal infinite damage.
Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve = infinite turns.
Thopter Foundry + Ashnod's Altar + Sword of the Meek = infinite colorless mana.

Card advantage

You're in blue and black with almost no card draw or tutoring. Demonic Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Diabolic Tutor, Phyrexian Arena, Consecrated Sphinx, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rhystic Study, Sensei's Divining Top, Trinket Mage. All are great in EDH.


Again, you're in the two colors best for removal in a format that relies on either having removal or being faster than removal, and you run no removal in a slow deck. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring, Vindicate, Utter End, Vraska's Contempt, Merciless Eviction, Supreme Verdict.

Mana fixing

It's easy enough to say "just run duals and fetches," but they really do make all the difference in the world for Esper decks. Shocklands and buddy lands cycles are great places to start. You want to minimize "enters tapped" unless the secondary effect is relevant. Chromatic Lantern is the best 3 CMC mana rock in the game and you should run it.


Wurmcoil Engine, Steel Hellkite, Batterskull are all amazing cards. Nevermore and Gideon's Intervention are solid defenses. Venser, the Sojourner is cool. Ajani Goldmane and Telepathy are just bad.

I feel like if you're gonna go full cEDH with this list and add in all the expensive cards like Mishra's Workshop, Power Artifact, Grim Monolith, Mox Diamond, etc. Then you might as well be adding Candelabra of Tawnos, since you're already running the Paradox Engine / Dramatic Reversal Combos? I dunno, maybe that only makes sense if you have lands that generating +1 mana... speaking of which, shouldn't Tolarian Academy be in this list?

sylvannos on Most Consistent Early Turn Win

1 month ago

I have to agree with Murpy: Academy-Belcher (or the People's Cannon) is probably the fastest deck with the most consistent turn 1 kill in any format. Although, I prefer the version which uses Land Grant (find Tropical Island so Goblin Charbelcher always kills) and Living Wish (grab Tolarian Academy out of the sideboard).

@StonedJesus: lmao kid you're not even using Tolarian Academy, Tinker, Voltaic Key, moxen, Black Lotus, or Time Vault. The fuck outta here with that tryhard casual bullshit.

KINGofORESKOS on Knowledge is Power

2 months ago

Nice deck! A funny way to improve the name would be "Knowledge is Power...and Toughness." And, a great school card is Tolarian Academy.
