rizzenkampf on Little Teysa's Value Town

17 hours ago

Hey antismart, thanks. It's my favourite EDH deck and I've seen quite a bit of success with it.

Regarding the Requiem Angel, it's probably not a good idea IMO if your meta is super competitive. The effect is nothing short of amazing - it synergises with Teysa so well - but 6 mana hurts if games seldom go past turn 7-8. Otherwise it's good - and the fact that's it's a 5/5 flier helps close the game sometimes.

As for other cards, if you're looking for slots, maybe:

  • Gravecrawler (because it's hard to recur and you already have other 4 recurring creatures),

  • Haunted Dead (worse Zombie Infestation I think),

  • Mortify (you already have a lot of targeted permanent removal and Teysa herself acts as repeatable creature removal - the reason I only run Anguished Unmaking and Return to Dust),

  • Trading Post (I've run it myself for a long time and it very seldom worked for me - it just does very little not quite often compared to what, say, Recruiter or Stoneforge offer)

I am probably way out of line here though - your list is very sweet and I am sure there are very good reasons for the above inclusions. I haven't tested the Recruiter thoroughly enough yet but Flitter and Stoneforge are amazing and the Ophiomancer is Bitterblossom No.2 most of the time.

slashoom on Hope of Ghirapur, Despair for All (Send Nukes)

CynicalDog Probably not a bad idea to replace three wastes with the Urza's trio, even though I've never seen all three on the board at the same time.

MagesOfTheBeach The only real problem is exile. There isn't much we can do about people exiling all of our combo pieces. Null Brooch is the best protection we have as well as Conqueror's Flail (which I may add to the deck). But, every deck has that problem.

As far as things getting destroyed, that is not a problem. We have tons of recursion: Buried Ruin, Trading Post, Junk Diver, Myr Retriever, Scrap Trawler, Workshop Assistant, & Sequestered Stash.

At Profet93, I just checked out your deck and it definitely looks really nice!!! I almost went the creature-less route on this one but it would screw with my playgroup's meta a bit too much and would draw a lot more hate. I'll leave some comments on your page.

I have been considering Vesuva and Thespian's Stage and will pick them up eventually.

Diabolic Tutor and Beseech the Queen feel too inefficient for me. I'd rather pick up an Imperial Seal or Grim Tutor if I could fit additional tutors.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is not needed here because Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed already has horsemanship making him virtually unblockable. I have not come across another horsemanship user and the card would not be useful enough with my other creatures to merit a slot.

One of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or Karn Liberated will be added once I get my hands on a nice foil. I will probably choose Karn Liberated because of his (-) ability.

I like Overwhelming Forces more than Decree of Pain because of flavor and it being a much more political card. Sometimes you only want to knock down one unruly opponent. Also, it has no effect on your board-state (aside from drawing you extra cards).

Syphon Mind will probably make it's way back in the deck. Phyrexian Arena bounces in and out of the deck a lot because it only nets you one card a round and is a dead draw late game.

Trading Post is a possibility. I'll need to test this out.

Vampire Hexmage and Dark Depths is a fun little combo. I like it.

My grief with Corpse Dance is that I need to keep track of the order of my graveyard. Once people start seeing cards in my graveyard, everyone wants a look and which creature is the "top" creature becomes a blur. I love the card, but the added logistics make it frustrating to use. It might make a return soon and, if so, I'll cut out Necromancy. I'll probably also cut Reanimate in favor of Chainer, Dementia Master.

Snuff Out is there for flavor. I have the version with the Liliana art as well as the Liliana version of Demonic Tutor and SDCC versions of the usable Liliana planeswalkers. I could probably cut it for a foil Karn Liberated, but it has scored me some sweet kills.

Thanks for the advice!! It is definitely greatly appreciated. Always glad to run into another Xiahou Dun user!

Robobro72 on Kurkesh and the Mechanical Masses

Greetings fellow Kurkesh player, and welcome to the dark arts of artifice! He is certainly an amazing general, and my take on his deck is more combo-centric. You would only have to add a Gilded Lotus to enable both infinite red mana and artifact untaps with it, Kurkesh, and Voltaic Key. This makes several utility artifacts such as Trading Post or Codex Shredder turn into win conditions. I love that about the deck since virtually all cards are useful both in and out of combo useless outside of the combo. Your take seems more budget-friendly and grindy, so a package with Clock of Omens and Myr Turbine can be really fun with Strionic Resonator abuse. Definitely will try some of your token ideas.

Also Dreamstone Hedron. It gets out of hand quickly.

projectneptune on Ayli Tribal Clerics

2 weeks ago

I'm in the process of revamping my Ayli deck into a tribal deck and your decklist gives me some great ideas so thank you for that. Welcome back to magic :) Some feedback for you:

  • I think instead of categories named "ramp" and "mana rocks", they should be "ramp" and "draw". This will give you a better idea of how many draw spells you actually have, which (in my opinion) you don't have enough for such a low mana curve. And on the ramp side of things, I'd stick in 2-3 more.

  • More commander protection.

Considerations for adds

Considerations for removal

  • Exorcist - I'm not a fan because it's only black, that's too restrictive
  • Orzhov Signet - *my issue with the signet is that it's CMC is 2 which conflicts with Ayli. I'd rather get slightly more value out of a 3 CMC the turn after
  • Orzhov Pontiff - Ability seems minimal at best but maybe i have tunnel vision
  • Hidden Stockpile - Maybe switch to Bitterblossom if price isn't a concern. Or, if you add some of the other token generators maybe this one won't be needed anyway
  • Martyr of Sands - Not nearly enough card draw to get a huge benefit out of this

HarroHunter

Urborg can usually help offset the colorless mana and you have a lot of tutors for it. Another tutor worth considering is Diabolic Tutor. Moreover, since 1/5th of your deck is artifacts, Buried Ruin and Trading Post are forms of recursion that might spark your interest.

Reassembling Skeleton (and trading post) can work with Contamination.

bushido_man96 Smokestack is a great card! It's really good with tokens, and i hadn't even though of using Rancor with it. Very clever!

Grave Pact is a little out of price range. though i did try to add all the effects i could run with it, maybe i could also run Custodi Lich as another of that effect. Any thoughts?

TheDoctor_Y2K More goats more better right? I'm not sure i run enough artifacts to fully utilize Trading Post. Although the post does do have a lot of options, which is good. This is my first time running Springjack Pasture, do you run it? If so how often are you sac'ing goats to get mana? I was mostly considering it a colorless Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree.
