Slayroth on Gishath Enrage Dino Tribal

Soooo etwas verspätet aber hier jetzt mein Senf zu deinem Deck:

mir fallen genau 3 Sachen auf zu denen ich gern was sagen würde:

1. Manabase

Ist dir sicher auch klar dass die nicht optimal ist, und du willst sicher auch kein Vermögen in sowas "langweiliges" wie Länder stecken, aber am Ende ist es die manabase die das tempo deines Deck ausmacht, und du hattest ja schon des öfteren Züge wo du einfach Dinge nicht tun konntest weil die X gefehlt hat. Der Punkt ist aber, du kannst eine Solide manabase bauen auch ohne nen vermögen auszugeben (Schok und Fetchländer müssen nicht sein) gerade bei nem 3 farbigen Deck kannst du noch relativ günstig wegkommen und trotzdem effektiv sein. Der entscheidenede Satz ist hier jedoch "enteres the battleflied tapped"! Diesen Satz solltest du unbedingt so gut es geht vermeiden, außer das land hat noch nen extra Effekt den du auf jeden Fall spielen willst.

Blossoming Sands Boros Guildgate Rugged Highlands Stone Quarry Wind-Scarred Crag Vivid Crag Vivid Grove Vivid Meadow

Die würde ich alle rauspacken und nach alternativen schauen. Tapped Länder sind einfach nen viel zu großer Nachteil, selbst Standardländer sind in den meisten Fällen besser als die obigen. Die einzigen die IMO noch klargehen sind Jungle Shrine, weil das dir alle 3 Farben ohne einschränkungen gibt (nicht wie bei den Vivids z.B) und Path of Ancestry weild er Scryeffekt einfach sehr stark ist.

Dual-Länder die du spielen solltest:

Checklands: Rootbound Crag, Sunpetal Grove,Clifftop Retreat (Besitzt du schon alle 3)

Painlands: Karplusan Forest,Brushland,Battlefield Forge

Battlelands: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista

Bondlands: Spire Garden ,Bountiful Promenade

Cycle-Duallands: Sheltered Thicket, Scattered Groves (Die beiden sind die Ausnahme zur tappregel, aber die Option es wegzucaceln ist sehr stark, weil das land dann im Endgame kein toter Draw ist wenn du eigentlich kein mana mehr brauchst)

Wenn du die hast kannst du dann irgendwann man darüber nachdenken dir die Schokländer zu gönnen. Die Kosten jetzt auch kein Vermögen im vergleich zu den Fetches. Ich glaube das teuerste ist das rot/grüne mit 10 Euro

Ansonsten sind das ohne die Schoks 12 Dualländer und mit Schocks 15. Den Rest (übrigens würde ich die raten etwas mehr Länder zu spielen, mind 36, da du durch die Dinos eine allgemein sehr hohe manakurve hast) würde ich dann mit basics und den Utillytyländern (graue) und Goldländern (5-farbige wie Command tower) füllen. Dabei würde ich dir gern noch 3 Stück zeigen die du vielleicht noch nicht kennst und die guty Synergien mit deinem Commander hätten:

Kessig Wolf Run Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion Slayers' Stronghold

Rest je nach Manakosten deines Decks mit unterschiedlicher Anzahl an Plains, Forests und Mountains füllen. Dann hast du ne solide manabase, die kein Vermögen kostet und trotzdem schnell ist. tapped länder sind Gift, vor allem in nem Ramp Deck wie deins eig eins sein soll.... was mich zu Punkt führt.

2. Ramp

Du brauchst unbedingt mehr und vor allem besseren Ramp in meinen Augen. Der ganze Sinn deines Decks ist es möglichst schnell deinen Commander zu spielen und zu eskalieren oder schnell das Board mit Enrage Stuff zu füllen. Aber all das ist verdammt teuer, und deshalb brauchst du unmengen an Ramp. Scheiß auf die ersten paar Züge, da macht eh kaum einer was das in Richtung angreifen geht. Ich denke die richrig guten Ramp Spells kennst du vielleicht noch gar nicht weil überall nur "Kodamas Reach" und "Cultivate" geschriehen wird. Aber schau dir mal folgende an: Skyshroud Claim und Nature's Lore bringen Wälder ungetappt!!! ins Spiel. Insane Ramp, spiele ich auch im Sliver Deck jetzt, Explosive Vegetation und Rampant Growth und Farseek nicht ganz so stark wie die oberen beiden da das mana getapepd kommt, dafür kannst du aber auch Plains und Mountains holen. Der Vorteil gegenüber Kodamas Reach und Cultivate (welche übrigens nicht schlecht sind! Will nicht sagen dass due die kicken sollst, das sind eher ergänzungsmöglichkeiten) ist dass sie entweder 1 billliger sind oder 1 mana mehr direkt aufs Feld bringen. In der hand nützt dir das Land erstmal nichts. Aus dem grund würde ich auch Seek the Horizon raushauen. Das ist kein richtiger Rampspell. Ein weiterer guter Spell ist Traverse the Outlands welcher dir gerne mal 5-8 Länder aus deinem Deck holt wenn du schon nen fetten Dino auf dem Feld hast. das ist dann zu meinen krasser ramp und zum anderen dünnt es dein Deck aus, wodurch die Fähigkeit deines Commanders häufiger auf Dinos trifft.

Ein weiterer Punkt bezüglich Ramp ist noch eine Sache die du dir vor Augen halten solltest: Du spielst Mirari's Wake und Zendikar Resurgent in deinem Deck, welche beide Mana von deinen Ländern verdoppeln. Im gleichen Atemzug spielst du aber Ramp in Form von Artefakten (Darsteel Ingot, Commanders Sphere etc.) welcher davon nicht profitiert. Ich denke es ist eine Überlegung Wert nur aufgrund dieser beiden Karten den Artefaktramp zu cutten und voll auf Landramp durch sorceries zu setzen (außer Sol-Ring....because broken).

3. Artefakt removal

ich finde du bist hier etwas zu stark reingegangen ehrlich gesagt. Du spielst mit Rain of Thorns,Aura Shards, Return to Dust, und Sylvan Reclamation 4 sehr teure und/oder Situationsbedingte Artefaktremovals während du gleichzeitig noch Beast Within mit dieser Option hast. Ich kann mich auch irren aber ich glaube das könnte etwas übertrieben sein. Du hattest bestimmt schon öfter die Situation wo du eine dieser Karten einfach nur gespielt hast weil sie seit Runden auf der hand war und du einfach nichts besseres machen konntest. Falls das der Fall ist solltest du drüber nachdenken hier etwas abzuspecken, entweder in der Anzahl oder den Manakosten. Und Selbst wenn du es bei 4 Stück belassen willst solltest du auf jeden Fall nicht auf Vandalblast verzichten. Die muss einfach in jedes rote Deck, da gibts eigentlich gar keine Diskussion, die Karte ist einfach strikt besser als alle 4 die du im Deck hast. 2 weitere Karten die ich dir als alternativen ans Herz legen würde: Hull Breach (nur 2 mana und zerschießt 2 Sachen, einfach viel effektiver als die 5 mana spells) und Decimate (viel! mehr value als die 3 5-mana spells die du aktuell spielst für nur 4 Mana, und du zerschießt einfach 4 Sachen auf einmal). Ich persänlich würde die beiden zusammen mit Vandalblast spielen und die 3 5er Spells cutten, das senkt dann auch die Durchschnittlichen manakosten deiens Decks. Was Aura Shards angeht, ist debattierbar. Meine rster gedanke ist, dass deine Dinos idr zu teuer sind um die effektiv zu nutzen, allerding triggert die karte auch vonm Effekt deines Commanders. schwierig, aber imo würde sie eh besser in dein katzendeck passen, weil die Kreaturen da allgemein billiger sind ^^

So das war erstmal alles, vieleicht änderst du ja das ein oder andere, bin gespannt :D Was den Rest deiens Deck angeht will ich nix zu sagen, die Auswahl der Dinos/Verzauberungen/Artefakte/Synergien etc. machen dein Deck aus und geben ihm die pesönliche Note, da will ich dir nicht reinpfuschen. :D

I guess Blighted Woodland can be replaced easily. Ash Barrens seems to be useful for basic land tutoring. My biggest concern now is about lands like Rakdos Carnarium and Vivid Meadow.They seem to have less potebtial than it looked like, however it might be just my first thought after playing it just twice. Both types are woeking good in other decks, so maybe it isn't bad idea to keep them until I'll get better lands. I should also be ablw to get the Commander's Sphere out of my different deck, where it is less useful :)

Spirits on Kaalia - Cheat A/D/D

4 months ago

Hi Elywood, Good start! Kaalia of the Vast is a really fun, albeit tier 3, commander that is the best!

Not sure of your budget, but here are some suggestion.

Alternative to Combo Win-Cons

The standard win-con in a Kaalia of the Vast which is not a combo is... Land Destruction! The idea being to use card's like Boros Charm, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Teferi's Protection to protect yourself; OR have an A/D/D in hand that you can free cast that demands a response, but is hard to deal with no lands, like Hellkite Tyrant or Iona, Shield of Emeria. The key cards to this strategy are: Crucible of Worlds, Armageddon, Ravages of War, Cataclysm, Strip Mine, Waste land, Command Beacon. This is a HIGHLY viable strategy, people may not like facing your Kaalia of the Vast deck, but it definitely isn't a combo strategy.

Master of Cruelties has to be in there, attack with Kaalia of the Vast, drop in Master of Cruelties, during the declare blockers step their life becomes 1 (assuming he is unblocked), and Kaalia of the Vast hits for 2 finishing the player. Not a combo, a necessary Demon.

Another common strategy is multiple attack phases, non-combo, but with big A/D/D beaters, having multiple swings (especially with Vigilance is amazing way to deal damage). The key cards are: Hellkite Charger, Aggravated Assault, Sword of Feast and Famine, Aurelia, the Warleader, Seize the Day. There is a combo with Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + sac outlet out of interest. Adarkar Valkyrie although not working properly with the Kaalia of the Vast mechanics, is still a great recursion angel. Reconnaissance is nice for this strategy too, as you can pull back your Kaalia of the Vast against block heavy decks, as well POST-damage, you can pull back EVERYONE, basically it gives all your creatures Vigilance.

Free A/D/D strategy, you have it with Sneak Attack, Quicksilver Amulet, Mimic Vat so your already there, try a Whip of Erebos gives all your creatures Lifelink, which increases your sustainability in drawn out games (non-combo strategy the only way to win is in a drawn-out game), plus give you another recursion engine. Could use a Sundial of the Infinite to keep them on the board permanently!!

Mana Sources

Lands: Blood Crypt, Godless Shrine, Sacred Foundry, Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, Marsh Flats would be some nice improvements.

Rocks: Mana Crypt, Chromatic Lantern would be good.

$$$: Plateau, Scrubland, Badlands

Control

Angel of Despair is great at removal, Anguished Unmaking is necessary, Terminate at CMC2 is good as well.

Stranglehold is another good control mechanism, you have a few, can look at pairing it with Maralen of the Mornsong to lock down opponents draw. She has synergy with some other guys like Aven Mindcensor/Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. Eidolon of Rhetoric might stop a Sunforger cast depending on what you did earlier that turn, like a Haste Kaalia of the Vast for example, to consider, or in an Armageddon build will be very bad.

Out of the 99 Considerations

I'm not a huge fan of Reverberate/Shunt, you have Sunforger so I get it, but it will often just sit in your hand. And Kaalia of the Vast is usually splash , so not that valuable. Would rather have a Steel Hellkite or a Gisela, the Broken Blade, or heck, even a Wild Ricochet

Solemn Simulacrum really unnecessary land searching. Use mana-enablers instead.

Toxic Deluge is an all-star removal, but he removes Indestructible, so unless your facing that frequently in your play-groups, it will hurt you more than a Damnation, Wrath of God, or Rout will.

Boros Garrison/Orzhov Basilica I find it too slow without infinite combo, although it ramps, but you have lots of mana enablers. Field of Ruin colorless mana isn't great, don't need the search. Flamekin Village cost is too high, tapped+, try a Hall of the Bandit Lord. Shadowblood Ridge is also not great (I know it seems like it should be, but it's not!), Slayers' Stronghold is too expensive , use Hanweir Battlements instead, but even then it's borderline (but better), Smoldering Marsh isn't going to come in untapped when you need it, Temple of Malice/Temple of Silence I also don't like, but borderline for me would be my last cuts, Vivid Meadow is no.

Earnest Fellowship I wouldn't do this, might make it hard for you to block (which you have the big creatures that are hard to block already). A little too dangerous for my liking, let opponents pump their creatures, no need to do it for them, and block with your big guys.

Don't need Land Tax either, not enough basic lands. Wear could easily be an Anguished Unmaking and have better removal or a Vandalblast to get away from 1 for 1 play.

Devoted Caretaker I wish she provided protection period so could go unblockable. I think Mother of Runes is enough, but maybe theres someone that gives just protection and doesn't cost a and ? But it does permanents, so I get it.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder will not be your friend some days during board wipe, but with so little drawing in Mardu, he's a fun one! I would run him in this type of build!

Coalition Relic I don't know it's worth it, give me a Chromatic Lantern any day.

Sun Titan is questionable, what are you bringing back? Lightning Greaves, Sunforger, Animate Dead, Necromancy only stuff. He's discretionary. High Mana cost but utility, he can combo with Fiend Hunter but again combos a different strategy (so can Karmic Guide btw).

Gilded Lotus seems highly unnecessary. Love the artwork on the Kokusho, the Evening Star always wanted him in.

Mana Distrubition

Right now, your 46%, 33%, 21% but your mana is 28%, 37%, 35%. In addition, Turn 1: 80%, 10%, 10%! / lands will be your best friends, but balancing / and / lands too. Avoid / that don't provide value, like Mountain, Shadowblood Ridge (awful), Smoldering Marsh, Temple of Malice.

Windswept Heath/Polluted Delta/Etc, the Off-Color fetches, can really help mana fix, pull a Sacred Foundry with Windswept Heath or a Godless Shrine with Polluted Delta / Etc.

Other Notables

Demonic Tutor doesn't get much better than that! Mortify can be a good utility removal the CMC3 makes it less attractive, Vampiric Tutor although inefficient to pull a Lightning Greaves or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is still good enough. It's instant so at EOT pull what you need. Rakdos the Defiler can be fun in a Armageddon model. Fetid Heath/Rugged Prairie are not too shabby. Sensei's Divining Top can help look and top-deck the A/D/D you need, IF you have none in hand it can swap places so you don't miss Kaalia of the Vast drops. Cavern of Souls against Grixis/Izzet, Phyrexian Reclamation can keep you rolling once you run out of cards-in-hand, an alternate quasi-draw.

Very good Kaalia of the Vast non-combo deck, looks like a blast to play. Hopefully you found some of these ramblings useful.

hfvalenz on Kaalia of the Vast Prototype

5 months ago

Hey, I've never piloted a Kaalia deck, I have only played against her and from my experience, she gets the attention on the table most of the times and for good reason. People really know Kaalia. So I think that playing her has some key elements that could be improved.

Get her out fast fast fast.

In order to do that I'd replace these with basics and boost your speed since you're playing all those fetchlands.

Protecting her.

Kaalia has been around long time so people know how dangerous she can be.

  • Darksteel Plate could be useful, specially against wraths but it doesn't do much against bouncing or exiling, which is why Whispersilk Cloak could be a better alternative, and can help you avoid combat damage as well.
  • Mother of Runes will give her protection in response to whatever spot removal targetting her.
  • Grand Abolisher helps you avoid getting Kaalia countered.

If Kaalia has died several times, what now.

As you probably know, she will get focused and sometimes you just can't protect her enough. You need alternatives when this happens.

Other things I noticed

  • You lack card drawing. It's essential to have angels / demons / dragons on your hand on each of your attack phases. Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence. Watch out for Emrakuls on your meta with the latter. Some wheels could prove useful refilling your hand, though Wheel of Fortune is expensive, Winds of Change, Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fate and Dragon Mage are good alternatives.
  • On the same issue as above, Sire Of Insanity and Malfegor aren't helping you with that.
  • You have access to the best colors for removal. Ditch Soul Snare and Angelic Edict for the more versatile ones Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking or Utter End. Even Chaos Warp is a better alternative than the two I mentioned. Instant speed removal is crucial.
  • Same as above with sweepers. Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation are much better than Armageddon, because as it let's you a great advantage and all it also puts a huge target on your head, because you basically stop them from having fun at all. And in my experience, people tend to remember those who broke their lands, it's just the way it is. You don't need more hate, Kaalia will draw enough herself. On the borderline of this are Cataclysm and Rakdos the Defiler. The other Rakdos, Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a way better alternative. Imagine swinging with Kaalia, on her trigger putting RTR Rakdos, then on your second main you'll be able to cast a creature with it's cost reduced.
  • You have 4 instants now (more coming in the future I hope) and 3 creatures with activated abilities requiring mana. Price of Glory punish your for using those. I know it will punish counterspells as well, but there are some alternatives for that that won't draw the hate on your head, as stated above.
  • Lastly, I know I insisted a lot on avoid drawin unnecesary hate on you, but Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is another one to give some thought. People really love their ramping and tutoring. Though in this case I'm not saying you should remove him, just re-evaluate his inclusion.

I hope some of this suggestions help in any way.

MRDOOM3 on Shitty Sliver Deck

I learned the hard way how much Paradox Engine can be abused with Sliver Overlord at the helm. All you need is a Manaweft Sliver along with about 3-5 others on the field, and you can basically play all the slivers in your deck.

Also, you can only have one of each nonbasic land in an EDH deck (You have two Vivid Meadows), just a reminder.

Prismatic Omen, I think, is always nice if you're running a rainbow-colored deck.

Speaking of abusing Paradox Engine, maybe you can also consider Door of Destinies to go with it. Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automaton, Metallic Mimic, Shared Animosity, Obelisk of Urd, etc. are also all really, really nice staples for any tribal deck.

patrickd117 on Rith, the Awakener Jan 2018

The lands definitely jump out at me as being not ideal. I'd Vivid Crag, Vivid Grove, and Vivid Meadow are almost always better than evolving wilds and terramorphic expanse. Rith's Grove is bad. I'd try out Krosan Verge. That's a must-play for me in white-green.

Seed Spark impresses me less than Return to Dust or Sylvan Reclamation, even considering that it's more synergistic with your deck.

I'd probably run Secure the Wastes over White Sun's Zenith. I've never been impressed with Dictate of Heliod. True Conviction also seems like a card that's not quite as good as it was when we started playing. It's also not as good with 1/1's; you need a pump for it not to be +1/+1.

Emeria Angel seems pretty low-impact, as does Requiem Angel. Farhaven Elf isn't the best option either. I think you really only want to run it if you're gonna be blinking it.

Random stuff that could be worth trying: Champion of Lambholt, Pathbreaker Ibex, Hornet Queen

Definitely add Cryptolith Rite and Rishkar's Expertise
