Tymna the Weaver Discussion

Daedalus19876 Thank you very much for your feedback. The cards you mentioned from my maybes were pretty much the exact ones I've selected so that's very reassuring.

All the other suggestions are great, thank you. I was already swapping Luminarch Ascension for Bitterblossom so good to get your encouragement on that swap. I don't own Vampiric Tutor atm. My current budget substitute is Diabolic Intent which I could use for the same purpose. Any other card draw you could reccomend in place of Damnable Pact ? I just bought a copy of Tymna the Weaver so I guess I can swap in her for Pact. I think Altar's Reap is possibly weak too, but I do sorta like having a surprise instant speed sac effect.

I should have explained but I don't tend to run Toxic Deluge at the moment because there is one guy in our playgroup who always plays big mana big creature green based decks with commmanders including Arixmethes and xenagos. He also runs lots of cards that double creatures power and double +1+1 counters etc so the creatures often end up extremely big so Elenda, the Dusk Rose is often not the biggest creature and Toxic Deluge frustratingly is just not as good as usual against his decks as the amount of life you have to pay is sometimes huge and sometimes even unpayable. It's possible the card is still good enough tho and I should give it more of a try because maybe I've underestimated how I can gain that life back same turn or get to a life total where I can pay. I run Path to Exile over Swords to Plowshares for a similar reason but again I'm open to trying out Swords to Plowshares especially as this friend is moving this month so the meta is going to change.

This decklist is still in quite an experimental stage and The Elderspell is something I have been just trying, partly as an alt wincon with the new Liliana, Dreadhorde General . I agree that it seems loose and I should cut it for one of the ones you highly recommend like Reaper from the Abyss .

I have a copy of Bolas's Citadel and would never have thought of it for this deck so thanks so much for that idea. I'll def try it. I will add back Swiftfoot Boots too but I cut Lightning Greaves because it stops me targeting Elenda, the Dusk Rose with effects like Hatred and Shizo, Death's Storehouse . Do you def think Lightning Greaves is better given that drawback?

Do you think Cabal Conditioning could be worth trying as a late game finisher to tutor? Or does Sadistic Hypnotist fulfil that function well enough?

One new card I was extremely impressed with was God-Eternal Bontu I ended up 1v1 against my friend on a Ruric Thar deck and I was recurring Bontu and he was recurring Ilharg, the Raze-Boar and the card advantage from Bontu in a token deck won out.

Your deck was such a good staring point thank you. Certain synergies like Elspeth, Sun's Champion + Martyr's Cause are just so good!!

I actually ran an Infect deck in these colors for a while using Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Tymna the Weaver so I can certainly give you some insight based on my own experience.

Tap down effects can help give you an edge to get your Infect creatures in. Blind Obedience , Kismet , and Loxodon Gatekeeper are a few to consider. Behind the Scenes and Mirari's Wake can also be helpful. I would also recommend two of my favorite pump spells Berserk and Hatred to really close out a game. Cards like Guardian Project , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Sylvan Library , and Necropotence are all major card draw engines.

@Quicksilver: In case you go off with Bolas's Citadel , Summer Bloom is quite useful to get additional lands from top of your library, but Glimpse of Nature is a good suggestion. I will test it.

@MrTomDawson: Thanks for your good suggestions! I thought of Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper in the very beginning. The idea behind Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa was to be able to connect with dorks to draw more cards off Tymna the Weaver . Probably I will test both.

Been debating on making a Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa & Tymna the Weaver infect deck. The mana base isn't as rough as a 4 color and it seems like a good shell. You can give this a shot!

Luarviq on The Wild Hunt

I'll agree with Bontu's Last Reckoning on that part, I always use majority of my mana each turn. However, it is a 3cmc boardwipe. Which is huge.

Reins of Power is in my deck because of popularity of Cyclonic Rift and In Garruk's Wake in our meta. Always unexpected, always lots of fun to use.

Karn, the Great Creator is an oddball to me here, too, however, I didnt draw him in my last plays, so can't say how efficient his presence is (unlike Narset, Parter of Veils on turn 4, bringing collective frown from everyone who played their Sylvan Library ). Might switch him to Ashiok, Dream Render . And no, oir playgroup doesnt mind sideboard tutoring, as long as it is not duplicate or bs-lock (Lavinia and knowledge pool, shimmer and urborg, lettuce for karn).

I was going to put Duplicant , however, I feel like I have plenty of exile effects already. Will keep him ready for playtest, though.

I like Rekindling Phoenix for his pseudo-undying, making me chump-blockers and sac fodder, since if he comes back with counter, his token cannot trigger without phoenix in graveyard. Surprisingly, with amount of idestructibles my opponents are running, only exile effect they tend to run is Merciless Eviction .

I had Warstorm Surge for some time, but pulled it out. It is only a side effect, and is very inconsistent here. I rely on creatures revival from combat, not on aristocrat tactics. One of the opponents is running Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and Tymna the Weaver lifelink deck, and dealing 15-20 to the face against him is more important than random damage from surge.

Will definetely consider Steal Enchantment , however, so far the only enchantment I had problem with was Omniscience , though,it is always acting as a singleuse, dumping all big threats all together, finishing the game.

JinShootingStar on In response, I’ll tap 7

I've tested Tolaria West A LOT. Islands are better because we run Back to Basics and High Tide , in the end was just a slow and mana intensive for me, very bad outside infinite mana situations.

My list uses Nimble Obstructionist to or counter a game-winning ability while replacing itself, to kill remove the Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and Tymna the Weaver from my meta AND provides a body to Illusionist's Stratagem infinite loops. It's the same reason why I run Venser, Shaper Savant , because with Ghostly Flicker I can just bounce everything from my opponent's battlefield.

Ragnar0k on Purphoros, God of the Tokens [cEDH PRIMER]

1 month ago

AJe11y, basing the mana curves off of TappedOut top 5 cEDH decks is unfortunately not the best way to gather data. If you check r/CompetetiveEDH, you'll find a phenomenal and widely agreed upon cEDH repository. 1.7 isn't very far-fetched. Here's a very popular and powerful list that does so: Breakfast Hulk. My personal project runs just under 1.8 (here it is -> Sydri, Aetherflux Genius [[Primer]]). Even higher average CMC control lists such as Tasigur Seasons Past / Season Pastigur sit closer to 2.

I understand your point about infinite mana, and can agree to it to enough of an extent to accept it. You haven't missed any tutors in red, as Gamble is about all you've got, but because of this is why i recommended the stax pieces ( Grafdigger's Cage and the like) to give you options to slow down the game in hopes to draw/tutor what you need. Graveyards are huge in the current meta (i.e. Hulk, Storm, and Pod), so any ways in which you may be able to stop them are beneficial. If you don't have a problem with ramp, Trinisphere and Thorn of Amethyst may work for you as well.

Ensnaring Bridge may be a nice card to cut because of the fact that most midrange cEDH swing with Tymna the Weaver , Najeela, the Blade-Blossom , and friends. Along with that Lightning Bolt can be a relevant sideboard card for you. Also, a sideboarded Boil over Nevinyrral's Disk can crumble mono-blue decks. Other cards that could help you filter through your deck more are Memory Jar and Forgotten Cave . Otherwise, the deck is solid and is very similar to how I would build it. The lines of play are also well explained and this is overall a very nice primer.

Omnisurge on Najeela and the war bound

Card draw is low and your vulnerability to board wipes is insane. I'd run at least a few counterspells to help protect your board as well as the basic protection you already have, they also have flexibility to stop your opponent from a game winning play. Mindblade Render and Tymna the Weaver are great card draw engines that work well with the deck style. Also Shared Animosity is a great finisher that is on a low cmc.
