Traumatize Discussion

Vorinclex is such a lad! Have a +1!

My suggestions: Burnished Hart and Explosive Vegetation win games. Definitely want more acceleration, when the day comes for 1v1 even 5 drop commander's can be a bit slow. Glimpse the Unthinkable dropped after the reprint, Hedron Crab , Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Traumatize , Reign of the Pit . May want board-wipes if you find yourself falling behind Cyclonic Rift , In Garruk's Wake , Hex . Demons may help with random flying damage, anyway good luck seems fun!!!!

carlmoores I'm always happy to see another Mairsil player join the ranks :) He does play wildly different then most other things. Takes a little while to wrap your head around. Hopefully I have some good answers for you.

Some amount of board wipes are always needed. Your own meta will determine how many you should have but I run 4, Jaya Ballard, Task Mage , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Perilous Vault . I do not run and have not messed around with pillow forts in Mairsil. The amount of removal I run enables me to remove most threats. I have another deck, Divine Decree, that is a pillowfort/group slug deck and it still runs 3-4 board wipes along side 20-ish pillows. If your asking specifically about on board vs not on board, well I have never found a reason to run Damnation in this deck. I do run a lot more removal in this deck than I do in any other deck because of how small my board state usually is. The pillows you run should allow you to run less removal than me but remember pillows can be removed and are usually removed when it is least convenient...

I usually find myself flickering Mairsil rather than untapping him. I have some untap because it isn't useless but unless you have a lot in the cage or have one of the 'abuse' cards like Quicksilver Elemental in play each ability can only be used once per turn. I just find flicker effects more useful than untap effects. Which is why I also put such an emphasis on haste.

I wouldn't run a lot of hard hitting self mill like Traumatize but running 1-3 things like it or Mirror-Mad Phantasm can take you from doing poorly/ok to winning the game. I had that happen the other day actually. I was doing ok and then got mirror-mad to dump more than half my deck, followed up with Deadeye Navigator and went infinite. Definitely worth a few spots but can backfire.

Usually when I use Buried Alive I grab a flicker or haste effect and Spikeshot Elder + Tree of Perdition and win or come close to winning that turn. So I don't think Archaeomancer is needed to recur buried alive if you use it that way. If you are looking for more long term value and are using Entomb and Final Parting it is definitely worth testing. That would also give you another wizard for Galecaster Colossus which I have found to be really useful in and out of the cage.

Think I covered all your questions pretty well? Let me know if I can be of more help.

Hey there. Working on my own Mairsil build and have been using your build as inspiration and a reference point since Mair is a completely different type of build than any other Commander. I have some questions about your build and statements about my own that I hope you can provide some insights on as I haven't piloted Mairsil yet.

How does Mairsil's ability to run on board removal like Avater of Woe and the Disk effect your need to run wipes and removal in the deck? I'm running 5 Crawlspace like effects including Silent Arbiter and Caverns of Despair and was thinking along with the disk maybe I wouldn't have to run board wipes because of it. Or is the fact that often your board state will just be Mairsil and some mana rocks offset this and create a need for the same or more wipes as most decks?

It seems to me that you would want to be untapping Mairsil as often as possible. Would you suggest running Horseshoe Crab on top of School and Morphling?

I was thinking of running Traumatize to play on myself thus giving me instant access to have my deck to cage. Thoughts?

Also considering Archeomancer to recur Buried Alive and Entomb (also, let me recommend Final Parting ) or is this unneccessary over kill?

Essentially mana acceleration is best in green for what you said about the early-game-wait.

Sakura-Tribe Elder, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Devoted Druid is cheap because of ultimate masters, Burnished Hart won my favor a long time ago, Explosive Vegetation, Dark Ritual, Courser of Kruphix

Mill: Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Traumatize

but mainly boost flying damage: Archfiend of Ifnir, Indulgent Tormentor, Demon of Wailing Agonies

Hi Zakkaery. Fraying Sanity would work very well with the deck, and I might replace Traumatize for it. Visions of Beyond probably will become a must because this deck has problems drawing, and Search for Azcanta  Flip would help a lot too, even though it is expensive.

All this recomendations are very nice, but maybe the creature aggro side of the deck should be reworked to a full mill deck to make the recommended cards efficient.

Flying-Turtle The first card I would suggest would be Waste Not it only 2 CMC and if you move Jace's Archivist into the main deck along with some other wheel effects like Dark Deal, Windfall, Whispering Madness, and other cards of the sort it can really add tremendous amounts of value to what you already want to be doing in the deck. And once again I would move both Keening Stone and Traumatize into the main list because they work together as 1 turn mill combo on a single person (if you have the mana). As for some other low cost cards I am surprised you don't have Animate Dead anywhere on the list because it can steal a creature from any graveyard. I would even count Avatar of Woe because the discount is easy to get and removal is always nice to have.

You said you wanted to make it more competitive, so I would first suggest Thrasios, Triton Hero as the paired commander with Kydele (so many combos), but he is pricy and that would require huge modifications to the deck so I'll just make different suggestions. Brainstorm and Treasure Cruise work very well with your commanders as well as easy self mill cards like Buried Alive and Traumatize that give you plenty of things to draw. Here's a cute interaction with both commanders: Mulldrifter. Draw helps Kydele, and Ravos loves evoke (you might want to consider looking at other evoke cards to see if you want more).
