Triskaidekaphobia occurrence in decks from the last year
Commander / EDH:
All decks: 0.0%
1 week ago
I like cards that effect everyone (relatively) uniformly; like Havoc Festival, Copper Tablet, Thought Prison, and Triskaidekaphobia. The trouble is they generally end up killing me more often than my opponents ;P
Pulling off a Global Ruin in my wubrg natural disaster deck, with five lands remaining? That’s the best.

Hello! I'm absolutely addicted to creating and playing new decks whenever I can, but I feel like they are always run the same line of objectives. I need something different. Right now I have a Syr Konrad, the Grim deck based on mill, a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger focused on a 12-rack strategy, making people go hellbent and want to punch me, a The Scorpion God deck based on -1/-1 counters & controlling the board, a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck on value and destruction/edicts, a Torbran, Thane of Red Fell burn chaos deck and a Neheb, the Worthy Minotaur Tribal. If you're paying attention, they all have one thing in common. Either they are mono red, mono black, or Rakdos. Well, I have a few decks that break this pattern: I own an Ayula, a Feather and a Rafiq deck, but I didn't build and brew them. I still love them very much, but they're adopted.
I am completely in favor of Jank, humor and silliness in general. Back when I started playing Magic, I brewed a modern deck themed around the number 7: seven letter names, seven p/t total, number seven somewhere in its text. Later it evolved to the number 13 because of Triskaidekaphobia, and lastly I merged them into a Baron Von Count deck that got dismantled because people hated dying on turn 5 constantly.
That is another problem I have a lot: getting targeted every game because my decks are frustrating to play against. So possibly a deck that doesn't provoke rage would be nice.
What would you beautiful people recommend me next? I have been looking into a goblin tribal (possibly Wort, Boggart Auntie), Queen Marchesa, and Kresh the Bloodbraided, but that's just Rakdos with extra steps.
I do not want any Superfriends type of deck, or decks that do everything all the time. No control stuff either.

Hello fellow Selenia fan, here's my Selenia Deck if you'd like to swap ideas. I like the inclusion of Bolas's Citadel here. Have you considered Tree of Perdition & Triskaidekaphobia? Great bit of tech considering you can alter your life total at will. Also Crush Contraband is good in place of RtD or in addition (nix Dispell maybe?). Another good bit of tech (budget dependant) is Vedalken Orrery considering alot of spells of ours are sorcery. It also allows you to Flash in Selenia when you have your pieces ready. Hope it helps some, +1 from me.

I know it's minor, but I like two-drop mana rocks over three-drops when I can get them-- Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Signet and Star Compass. Bontu's Monument is kind of like ramp for your black creatures and also gives you incidental life gain/drain.
Bojuka Bog is a nice graveyard-hate piece with little downside and Tainted Field comes in untapped and will usually give you colored mana. Caves of Koilos is also nice coming in untapped and Silent Clearing gives you the option for card draw when you need it.
Working in some on-theme card draw will help you find your threats and answers. Dawn of Hope synergizes nicely with what you're doing. Icon of Ancestry is pseudo-card draw that buffs your creatures. With all the life you're gaining, Underworld Connections is a nice source of card draw that doesn't really hurt. I also like Marchesa's Decree since you're already running enchantments to discourage your opponents from attacking you and the monarch is a fun mechanic.
Triskaidekaphobia could be an interesting alternate win-condition.
Suggested cuts: Arvad is kind of expensive and has payoffs with only 4 cards in your deck (including the commander) Cast Down doesn't let you deal with your opponents' commanders. Life gain that doesn't do anything but gain life like Sanguine Sacrament and Beacon of Immortality. Impale (Murder is cheaper, Mortify is more versatile, exile effects might even be more efficient)

Hey Deadpoo111. I haven't been able to get a Triskaidekaphobia deck under $5, but I think my latest deck - $5 Cursed Enchantments would be a decent shell - lots of control elements, and Underworld Coinsmith allows you to get them down to exactly 13. Maybe toss in a few Profane Command as well.

Black probably has the best cards that punish opponents if you want to at least embrace the theme and have cards along those lines I would suggest a black, red, blue color wheel because you can also do things like Demonic Pact + Harmless Offering or Donate and there is the newer card Captive Audience to slap on opponents then add things like Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia some ideas to add to any deck to fit the theme and you can go grixis staxs to further control the board examples War's Toll , Frozen AEther , Archfiend of Depravity , Crawlspace , if you want to really make them cry Ward of Bones
