Tribute Mage Discussion

Farycane on Emry, Lurker of the Loch [Turn 1 Victory]

9 hours ago

Hey I don't know if you are still updating this List, but I may have some ideas that may be an upgrade

Crystal Vein for an Island

Narset, Parter of Veils not exactly sure what to take out, but not let opponents draw is great

Shimmer Myr Better than Leyline in many cases, recurable with Emry

Search for Azcanta  Flip Flip ability is super interactive

Soul-Guide Lantern Finally able to play artifact based onesided grave hate! Great new card

Sculpting Steel Phyrexian Metamorph depends a little, but there are some really nice artifacts to copy. Best I got was T1 2 Manacrypts but even Thornbite or Boots/Greaves are good to have as backup

Muddle the Mixture Tutor and Interaction, would kick out Tribute Mage for that

Riddlesmith would play rather than Vedalken Archmage. 2 Mana less und you have Grave access

Counterbalance really hard to Play against

Stifle for Disallow, 3 Mana ist much for a counter, Maybe Tale's End fits better than Stifle

Thoughtcast Visions of Beyond Some cantrip/Draw isn't always bad.

Retract Save from Artifact Wipes, basically a Ritual with fast mana, triggering Archmage/Riddlesmith etc again on recast

Freed from the Real not a loop, but really good untapper

Drafna's Restoration at instant this would be way too good, but still very good card

Chromatic Star Conjurer's Bauble take 1 mana more than the Other baubles (chromatic 2 to get startet), but drawing immediatly. Worth a Shot. Drawing a card extra on your turn can be important

Sensei's Divining Top Interactive, nearly unkillable, smooths draws

Tezzeret the Seeker Battlefield Tutor, 5 mana Reshape costs Boardpresence and finds 3 or less cmc (which is enough for combopieces) but Tezzi for 3 let's him stay on the Battlefield. Untapping Sol Ring and Vault e.g. with his +1 makes im nearly free

Corridor Monitor Not a good substitution for Mirran Spy or Chakram, but still usable. You can + on colorless mana as long as you have blue with KCI or Ashnods, as said, not nearly as good, but good enough to get some storm count to finish of opponents

I found this list from your Youtube video. Great work! I love the Budget Substitution at the end of the video. You do a really nice job with your channel! Keep going

jasonkrivera on Alela, Enchantress of the Fae

jconeil1988 good point! I'll probably not run the Foundry/Sword combo in this deck due to this actually. The individual pieces don't warrant inclusion on their own, and I want my commander out as long as possible.

Also, I played my Alela deck for the first time last night!


I forgot I'm also running Pili-Pala + Grand Architect + Urza, Lord High Artificer, and that's how I won that game.

I played Grand Abolisher, Grand Architect, and Swiftfoot Boots and passed the turn with Urza, Lord High Artificer and Tribute Mage in hand. Next turn I played Tribute Mage, searched for and cast Pili-Pala. Equipped Swiftfoot Boots to give Pili-Pala haste, and made Pili-Pala blue with Grand Architect. Then I made infinite mana, cast Urza, and exiled my entire deck except 3 cards. For free, compliments of Urza's ability, I cast Grim Guardian and then Enchanted Evening, and I cast the rest of my permanent cards exiled with Urza's ability, and played a land to kill everyone else off with Constellation triggers.


In remembering the Pili-Pala + Grand Architect, I remembered I run several CMC 2 or less control instants as an Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal package, along with mana rocks.

Lastly, I also have a small CMC 3 or less enchantments package to tutor with Zur the Enchanter, and will be adding Contamination + Dreadhorde Invasion to combo with the mana rocks already included for the Isochron + Dramatic Reversal.

I thought my lack of focus on either artifacts or enchantments would hurt the deck, but it seems the multiple-prong attack is tough to deal with, and the ability to win out of nowhere all of the sudden is pretty good. Tossing out faerie tokens is a potential aggro win-con and a byproduct of the other strong combos I guess?

I can post a list if anyone would like to brew and compare decklists!

Silverdrake on Grixis Affinity - Post Opal Ban

Looks fun! If I were you I'd cut the snaps in favor of Tribute Mage . Since you've only got 11 targets for snap, and tribute mage grabs your platings or ravagers to end the game.

Ovanlight on Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (w/Primer)

Xephon Sure! I had a slot I was trying to replace with Tribute Mage anyway, and that's a great card to put in its place!

mini update: In Life from the Loam Out: Tribute Mage

Tylord2894 on Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (w/Primer)

I think the core of the deck is solid. There are a lot of cards that I really like and didn't even think about. There are some areas that I think can be improved. A lot of these tend to use be what I use, but we have different playstyles.

Cards that I think are missing/should be added:

Things that I'm confused about:

greebles on Yarok, the Triggered - A Competitive Primer

2 weeks ago

Hey L0TTO! I think Cloudstone Curio it's a fine card. I just think it's a bit slow for my tastes. I think there's good value there if you want to play it and your play group is slower, I just went in with the philosophy that I want to play ramp, some value spells, and most permanents I play with I just want to have some sort of ETB effect. So, I dunno. Try it out.

With regards to Tribute Mage , again, a fine card. It tutors for the ramp spells you indicated. Again, it just didn't seem like the most attractive option when you can play something like Spellseeker in its place.

king-saproling on Bruna, Light of Alabaster EDH

2 weeks ago

Bruna is super neat. You might like these: Millikin , Deranged Assistant , Not of This World , Flickerform , Curator's Ward , Auramancer's Guise , Pemmin's Aura , Idyllic Tutor , Cephalid Illusionist (mill yourself out entirely with Lightning Greaves! at worst you can gradually mill yourself while having a perfect blocker), Tribute Mage , Vedalken AEthermage , Coalition Relic (gets Bruna out 2 turns early), Worn Powerstone , Merchant Scroll , Tunnel Vision , Mirror-Mad Phantasm

L0TTO on Yarok, the Triggered - A Competitive Primer

2 weeks ago

Hey, this looks like a great list and is a very comprehensive guide! I just have one question (and although Yarok is my absolute favorite card in standard, I only just built my EDH deck with him within the last couple weeks so take this with a grain of salt), and I guess one comment as well.

Is there a reason why Cloudstone Curio isn't included in either your main or sideboard artifact list? It seems like a fantastic card and I'm leaning heavily towards getting it.

The comment is probably just me being bad at the game but I was personally experimenting with running signets AND talismans, and running Tribute Mage as a tutor for them since they are all targets and she synergizes with Yarok.

Anyway, again, solid list!
