Triskaidekaphobia Discussion

BMHKain on Xantcha: America Incarnate; of another Timeline...

Seriously, man! Do you even have Triskaidekaphobia trying to cut anything? 13 is just a number, just like 4 is the Number of the Dead in Nippon/Japan/Kamigawa even though you can just replace Shii with Yoh!

Basically put; it's only 13 cuts, better than the other things I'm trifling w/ right now. Any suggestions? You may even reduce the Fear of the number 13 by just cutting only some at a time; or do you want to know why I chose Xantcha, Sleeper Agent anyways? The answer is actually to have a Political Rakdos CMDR with the use of cards that question an opponents decisions, or even make more than one opponent at a time be forced through unconventional situations. Politics, but still having the highest amount of control. Either you make adds in Colors that exemplify this, or kill some of the demons of the night resembling Cards. I'll leave you to decide what you wish to do...

If you're already running Bloodchief Ascension , why not add in Mindcrank to make another infinite combo?

I would cut the cards that capitalize on discard such as Waste Not and Liliana's Caress , I don't see enough ways to consistently make people discard to capitalize on them. I do believe I saw 3 discard engines total, Liliana of the Veil , painful quandry and Words of Waste . Just doesn't seem worth it imo. I would also cut Triskaidekaphobia just beca use it seems too situational to actually benefit from and could accidentally kill you instead if things don't go your way.

I'm kinda surprised that with all of this black mana generation and burn being the theme, there aren't more x spells such as Torment of Hailfire or Consume Spirit . They seem like good fits here. Corrupt is sort of like an x spell, but with the added benefit of not eating all your mana. Hope some of these help.

have you tought of Triskaidekaphobia for the effect with Tree of Perdition , it seems ok for a modern combo but idk what you would throw out

Another idea:

Make a BRWG coloured deck that focuses on manipulating players life totals to win.

Include the cards Near-Death Experience , Tree of Perdition , Tree of Redemption , Vhati il-Dal , Triskaidekaphobia , Heartless Hidetsugu , and Hidetsugu's Second Rite .

Burn can be utilized as a secondary win condition.

How tight of a budget are we talking about here? Cards that are under $3 or cards that are ranging from a couple cents to $1?

There are some fun Orzhov shenanigans you can do for super cheap like Reverse the Sands , Repay in Kind , Soul Conduit , Triskaidekaphobia just to name a few.

Lemme know if you would like some more suggestions!

Suggested card replacements!

maybe cut 2 mana rocks in addition to the earlier notes I provided.

Thought Vessel --> Loxodon Warhammer

Worn Powerstone --> Gut Shot

The warhammer gives lifelink, super! Gut shot is nice cause you can fix your life total before switching 1, point for casting or 2, or 3 points if you target yourself for free.

Suture Priest --> Wall of Shards

Same drop slot and you stop opponents being able to manipulate their own life total by playing creatures.

Fireball --> Electrodominance

One more mana, and you get to cheat out Triskaidekaphobia or Axis of Mortality at instant speed.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance --> Necrologia

Too slow, and necrologia lets you draw a bunch of cards.

Marchesa's Decree --> Blood Celebrant

Again, you don't want them to fix their own life total themselves. Blood celebrant lets you fix your own and fixes mana, so good.

Syphon Mind --> Vexing Devil

I know you like the multiplayer discard, but I think vexing devil is better in this slot.

Swords to Plowshares --> Snuff Out

This is really up to you, I like the idea of trading life for creature removal but your mileage may vary.

Akroma's Vengeance --> Return to Dust

You run way too many tech enchantments that you want to be able to get back.

Chainer's Torment --> Restoration Specialist

not worth the life you put into it. Rootborn Defenses --> Unbreakable Formation

Just a strict upgrade IMO.


Tainted Field Tainted Peak Spinerock Knoll Battlefield Forge Caves of Koilos Sulfurous Springs Mistveil Plains

cut basics? I like them because you can bring your life down, fix mana, cheat things out, and get instants back into your deck...

I see what you are trying to do, and this deck should be reinforced with Whipflare , Mizzium Mortars , Electrickery and Pyroclasm in order to super buff your CMDR and have him deal lethal commander damage.

I think Devastating Dreams in here can ensure that no one will have any lands to respond to your giant CMDR. I highly recommend that you include more shroud/hexproof: Whispersilk Cloak , Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots and Glaring Spotlight .

Maybe Akroan Horse has a place here?

One last thing, mana rocks will be your best friend in this deck: Thran Dynamo , Rakdos Signet , Commander's Sphere and Talisman of Indulgence (there are many more you could choose from].

I know when first starting EDH, it is tempting to include every rare in your deck that you have. That shoudn't be the case here, things like Vanquisher's Banner Triskaidekaphobia , and Extractor Demon have little to no place here.

Good luck on this deck manifestation!
