Vexing Scuttler Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on which one of these commanders ...

Looks like a solid Yuriko list. A couple of suggestions for your consideration though. Back when I still had my Yuriko deck I loved using the Eldritch Moon Eldrazi: Emrakul, the Promised End , Vexing Scuttler , Elder Deep-Fiend , etc. They all have huge mana costs, but each cost can be reduced. It's especially fun to sac Yuriko to the emerge eldrazi, then bounce the emerge eldrazi back to hand with Yuriko, and then repeat the process.

Other cards with high CMC that can be reduced that I really liked were Temporal Trespass , Curtains' Call , and Commit / Memory .

Lastly, I can't stress enough the importance of top deck manipulation in Yuriko. If you can budget it I would strongly recommend picking up Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top .

Here is my old list if you want to take a look: Pocket Sand v2

Have you considered cards which have a high cmc, but can be cast for a cheaper rate like Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise or the Emerge eldrazi like Elder Deep-Fiend, Vexing Scuttler, Distended Mindbender?

Also, Bone Harvest is great with Yuriko.

This deck is sophomoric.

Curtains' Call and Coastal Breach are both underwhelming cards. Serum Visions isn't good in this deck. Dowsing Dagger is BAD! Negate and Doom Blade are both limited here. Vexing Scuttler is terrible!

Triton Shorestalker ----> Looter il-Kor

Where are the changelings... Mirror Entity

Lastly, Ornithopter?

Gonna do my usual mistake and not quit while I'm ahead: As Foretold (probably too slow without e.g. proliferate), Release to the Wind, Vexing Scuttler (dunno if you have enough disposable creatures) & Elder Deep-Fiend (kinda helps with the group slug aspect as well), Endless Obedience, Herald of Anguish

Wretched Gryff is just bad, I would take it out, if you want card draw get Rhystic Study

Vexing Scuttler, just bad, find a better eldrazi or recursion method. Snapcaster Mage is significantly better, and other options would be better.

Panharmonicon does nothing in this deck pretty much, Eldrazi say "When they are cast" not when they enter the battlefield. I know it is for your combo but you don't have a consistent way to get it onto the battlefield, so you should be focusing on a combat victory as opposed to a combo based one.

Why do you have a category for steal? If its not your main theme it is not worth it to keep the two non-ninja creatures in the category.

Take out the "Fodder" category, a category with 1 card that is already in another category is useless.

- For as creature heavy as this deck is, you have them for your first line of defense and offense, having Aether Meltdown and Dampening Pulse isnt necessary to staying protected. Cutting them out frees up important room for mana ramp cards to get more creatures out faster.

- Needlebite Trap, really only good if youre going up a lifegain deck, and if thats your reason for running it you might as well just sideboard it and only put it in the deck when you need it.

- Drownyard Behemoth a very steep casting cost for a 5/7 that only has hexproof for one turn, which it probably wont even be targeted on. Even the emerge cost is steep.

- Vexing Scuttler another high casting eldrazi that does little in return. Youre better off hoping to drawing another instant/sorcery than having to spend 3 mana on this creature just to bounce one back to your hand.

- Grizzled Angler  Flip a decent early game blocker, but its transforming mills your own deck and depends on I feel youve lost a creature. For 3 mana why not cast a Dominator Drone? Its giving you more damage than the Anglers fish side because it hits the board a turn earlier. Id cut just one Grizzled Angler  Flip for now, its transformed Ability could be a good way to clear your opponents board of blockers, but you wouldnt need to of him in the field so.

Like I said, the ingest interaction can be a really good source of utility effects for an eldrazi deck, but you either need to focus more on this idea, or cut some of those cards so you have more room for aggro/ramp. Youre too creature heavy right now, and not enough ramp. For the most part your noncreature spells look fine, save the possible cuts I mentioned.
you should take the creatures you have picked out right now, and categorize them based on what they offer you during a game. Go through each stack of these and compare which creatures in their categories beat out each other. For example, Dominator Drone drops down for 3 mana and is dealing 2 dmg of the bat, not to mention its swinging for 3 dmg when you attack. Reaver Drone guarentees no Damage, is only swinging for 2 when you attack, can be chump blocked with a 1/1, and shoots you in the foot if you dont have another creature out.

Thanks for looking at my deck! I thought I'd return the favor :)

I think Anticipate is too small an effect. Sure, with rebound it's nice, but it takes up a card slot where you could something cool.

I chose to not play so much counterspells because you can't rebound them usefully, but I understand why they're in :). I do love Supreme Will, because you can rebound that one.

Dragonlord's Prerogative is nice, but in Ixalan you can draw 7 cards for just one more mana (even though it's a sorcery). Might be worth looking into Overflowing Insight . What a rebound card! :D

I think primal amulet is an awesome Jace's Sanctum replacement and I think you really should try Metallurgic Summonings, that card is great!

Monastery Loremaster seems a bit low powered...I think Vexing Scuttler or Mnemonic Wall are better.

Have fun with Taigam!
