Winterblast on making a Group-Slug Chaos deck

6 days ago

I would say Norin, as we have a Norin deck here that is really good. It relies less on all these spells with high mana costs though. Weak points are Overburden and Torpor Orb...

At first I would like to thank you all for your comments and suggestions. You made me happy guys!

Redace878 I do not want to splash red because I think that you can not play 3 colours budget deck because of its expensive mana base... If I had played naya I would not have played cards which you recommend but as TheDuggernaught said I would play Akoum Battlesinger, Firemantle Mage, and Reckless Bushwhacker.

Argeaux I play Fragmentize mainly because some players have Torpor Orb in their sideboard which can shut down my deck. Fragmentize can get rid of it without problems and it is more mana efficient than Naturalize. On the other hand you are right that it is not limited like Fragmentize. I will think about and I might use it in the future.

TheDuggernaught You are absolutely right. I should cut 2x Talus Paladin. I will definitely buy Metallic Mimic. This card suits my deck much more together with Hardened Scales. I have not done it yet because I do not have much time to play magic these days beacuse I write my bachelors thesis :D I have tried Mirror Entity and Captain's Claws already. They did not prove to be good. Mirror Entity is good only if you have strong board position mainly with Harabaz Druid. Captain's Claws is a slow card in my opinion on the other hand you are right that it could be good in some situations.

I must have made it not clear. You don't want to ever see a Torpor Orb as it kills your deck, it is a card that will be sideboarded against you as it makes your deck useless, if anything put the Negate's or more Leveler's there

Hi Coinman,

you have been on my decklist a few times, which can be found here.

I had two cards on my maybeboard, which I am curious about how they play for you.

Defense Grid and Torpor Orb. Especially Torpor Orb I have doubts.But my meta is full with blue counterspells and lots of spot- and mass-removal.

Any last tips? Cause I wasn;t able to get the full stax potential on my opponents yet :/

Okay so the idea of a sideboard in a combo deck should always concern protecting the combo in difficult matchups. Because you are playing blue, a number (probably 2 of each) of Dispel and/or Negate should be there. Propaganda feels more like a mainboard card that gets sided out against creature light decks, Leyline of Singularity while cool has no place on the sideboard. Tormod's Crypt to deal with reanimate decks (3 copies). Echoing Truth is a good choice on your part. That puts us at 9 cards (not including Propaganda). From there the choices are up to you, options could include something as simple as Unsummon but I wouldn't use it. I would suggest putting 3-4 copies of Delver of Secrets  Flip on the sideboard, its a card that could find a home here and also speed up your clock making you less reliant on the combo. Your opponent is likely going to bring in some hate during the sideboard games, I know I would side in a Torpor Orb if I saw this list beforehand to avoid the instant win Leveler. Other than that the deck is pretty solid.

That's a bit unfortunate about your meta. :0(

If you want to try adding hate to the deck you might consider options like Pithing Needle (for key abilities), Nevermore (for combo commanders), and Torpor Orb.

Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Darksteel Mutation and Oblivion Ring can stop even indestructible threats.

But on a personal level, I do hope you find EDH players looking for the same kind of fun as you and not degenerate combos.
