Vedalken Orrery Discussion

DrukenReaps on Eldrazi Steamroll

How much do you rely on animar? It doesn't look like there is enough protection for him in the deck if you rely heavily on him. I would consider Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, or/and Asceticism. Otherwise I'm really at a loss on what to suggest. The deck looks really good.

Domri Rade too perhaps? Oh and Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation could be fun.

Cool deck; though with a budget constraint that's slightly higher, I think it can be improved upon. Cards I'd add, would be some additional steal-creatures like Empress Galina, Memnarch and Roil Elemental. I think cards like Control Magic and Mind Control should also be in here (and Treachery, if you can get one).

Next I'd add some cheaper (in terms of CMC), more effective card draw options like Ponder, Preordain and Rhystic Study.

Also, I'd try make this deck even more reactionary than it already is by adding cards like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Leyline of Anticipation and/or Vedalken Orrery. Make people afraid to attack you by stealing attackers from them (or your allies).

Last, but not least, I think Blade of Selves would look absolutely brutal on Keiga.

Cards I'd remove to make room for all of this: mostly cards that are either less powerful than some of the ones I just mentioned OR cards that do the same thing but have a higher CMC. Some examples: Saheeli's Artistry, Tempt with Reflections, Vesuvan Shapeshifter, Vizier of Many Faces, Curse of Verbosity and Mulldrifter.

Happy gaming!

I would suggest getting utility sweepers like Austere Command or Merciless Eviction in there as semi catch alls.

Also maybe Vedalken Orrery so you can have end of turn shenanigans

Vedalken Orrery Azusa, Lost but Seeking Crucible of Worlds Strip Mine Wasteland These are all cards you need in this deck for it to be a "Competitive" commander. I ran Omnath Locus of Mana for awhile as a competitive commander and it did fairly well with the stuff that I had in there.

I would probably find room for Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation. Maybe even an Akroma's Memorial. Always funny to not only have a butt-load of tokens, but ones with all those abilities. But that's just me, it looks like you run fine without any extra frills.

multimedia, it's always a pleasure being remembered =)

Well, right now i returned to Standard - for those sweet pushes - with the deck i have in the most complete state, IMO: GB Constrictor. Though, with a twist - as i don't have any Walking Ballista, i play three Thought-Knot Seer. Servant of the Conduit into turn three discardrazi is quite powerful, as you might imagine. One push down from one push available for now _

Yeah, Commander is always a fun thing to waste time and money with) Inalla, Archmage Ritualist is my latest aspiration, so i didn't get anything all too cool in particular for her yet - looked at your deck, looked at Labmaniac's take on it, threw all the junk and not-really-junk applicable for her in and had a blast! It's amazing how much a line of double Trinket Mage for Sol Ring and Sensei's Divining Top or Sol Ring and Chrome Mox into: Chrome Mox --> Sol Ring --> Talisman of Dominance makes opponents to eyeroll =)

From the notable cards that stood up for me either in games or the reason for inclusion in my deck:

Sundial of the Infinite - it's an extremely powerful card in Inalla as we get to keep all those tokens and can open up some additional shenengians;

Deadeye Navigator - nothing much to say here. Very good, with Inala in particular.

Panharmonicon - didn't come up in games yet, but the dream of those four Venser, Shaper Savant's triggers lives. Also of note i've got two clones for in deck that can copy it: Phyrexian Metamorph and Clever Impersonator;

Conjurer's Closet - free triggers of Inala, nothing else. Though i wonder whether i should cut it as i already have Deadeye and Ghostly Flicker for essentially same effect;

Whip of Erebos - showed itself as unexpectedly good card! Lifegain does matter and random reanimation also does matter. Also comboes with Sundial of the Infinite;

Sneak Attack - no much to say here: had one, threw one in as it should be amazing here) Also comboes with Sundial of the Infinite and blinks;

Beacon of Unrest - decided to use one for case of reanimating Altar or some other artifact if they got removed;

Warstorm Surge - pretty obvious. Provides some removal and possible finisher, though probably costs too much. Maybe will replace it with that two mana enchantment, but doesn't go to non-players;

Mistbind Clique - known combo. Also finish with previous card;

Herald’s Horn - kinda want to test this out and see whether it'll provide card advantage;

As of note: i don't have quite some staples like Wanderwine Prophets cause... well, cards do spike. And i don't ever buy spiked cards)

Also, as a core Tasigur player, it pains me greatly that there cards in my graveyard that are essentially gone forever, so i've been considering running Vedalken Orrery + Day's Undoing. Do you have any suggestions for this?


Well, Ixalan does seem quite interesting for standard and has some amazing cards for Commander, but overall i'm not too excited for. It does give us some generic tribal support... however expensive in CMC it is =)

And well, considering that after all talk of "no-more-1-mana-ramp-dorks" they gave one to dinos there is some hope for us in Dominaria!

Sinice it's a Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck you could always try out Vedalken Orrery since you might have enough mana to dump a large number of creatures drawn before discarding.
