I would definitely play discard such as Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize. Maybe cut the Void Shatters for Remands. A copy of Dismember for removal could be good. I would take out the Elixir of Immortality and Whispersilk Cloak. Gaining 5 life for isn't worth it and Whispersilk Cloak can stop some of your creatures from being ninjutsued. Even though it gives unblock able their are just better cards to play. You could include fairies by putting in Brazen Borrower and Spellstutter Sprite. Umezawa's Charm is kinda weak. Maybe play some Spectral Sailors instead. For land take out the Dismal Backwaters and Sunken Hollow and replace them with Darkslick Shoress and Watery Graves.

Good Luck!

TristanCVena, thanks! That's a good point actually, I guess it is a little redundant to use Void Shatter just for the exile. I'll swap them out for Mana Leak and do some more playtesting. Thanks for the suggestion! :D

I get that you're using the Void Shatter to avoid putting cards in your opponent's graveyard for when you give them the immortal coil, but since you likely will have to Tormod's Crypt their graveyard either way in order to kill them, wouldn't a more efficient counterspell like Mana Leak be a slightly better fit? either way, really cool deck!

HELLcaster19 on Morophon Eldrazi

Edgardxcore Hey! Cool deck!

This is also a plan of mine to get going, once I have assembled my Abzan deck.

As king-saproling stated, Pitiless Plunderer would be a wonderful fit in here. Id consider cutting some of the following though:

Fist of Suns

Jodah, Archmage Eternal

Chromatic Lantern

Reason being; with Morophon's ability to reduce the colored pips in casting cost of your Eldrazi creatures, you will most likely want him on board as often as possible, as such, color fixing and alternate casting costs are not as vital to your strategy. Mycosynth Lattice is much higher in terms of cmc, but will also you to use your colorless mana in any way that you see fit!

You already have Lightning Greaves, so perhaps look into adding Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak as well, to offer more sources of protection. Neurok Stealthsuit is another good option, and gives you an instant speed equip option, should you need to move it around.

Another option to consider cutting would be Trophy Mage. As it is, you have 4 artifacts that it can fetch up out of your 13. Countering a creature is easy and will prevent your tutor for one of those pieces. A good option to substitute in would be Perplex. It offers you a tutor for a 3 drop, but is harder to prevent, as it is an activated ability, rather than an etb and can also be used as a counter should you need it.

I would also recommend substituting Dust Stalker and Nest Invader for some additional Devoid creatures that can bring in tokens upon entry to further your colorless ramp.

I run a mostly colorless deck, and find that Mystic Forge is a key piece in the deck. Some other good options for counters and removal are:

Void Shatter

Spell Shrivel

Complete Disregard

Serpentine Spike

Oblivion Strike

Smothering Abomination

That last one is just a personal favorite of mine, as its a great source of card draw when you sack your tokens for mana :) I hope some of this helps.

Mana Echoes can also be a great source of colorless ramp if you are willing to shell out the caps for said card.

NV_1980 on Lu Xun, Scholar General - Budget Voltron

2 months ago

Hi,

This has got to be the most unconventional voltron deck we have ever laid our eyes on. And it's budget too! Kudos for building this, we applaud you! Some recommendations we would have:

  • Sigil of Sleep: attaches an Unsummon/Boomerang to Lu that's triggered whenever he damages someone. We thought this would be a good replacement for Clockspinning.
  • Void Shatter: does almost the same as No Escape but works against any spell.
  • Vanishing: this is extremely useful when someone casts untargeted removal like a wipe. Lu will just phase out until just before your next untap phase and thus remain unaffected. Only drawback is that he cannot be used as a blocker until then. Still awesome though, right?

Keep up the nice brews and let us know how this deck plays.

All the best and regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

There is a lot of things in this deck that I see can be upgraded or removed.

First, I'll suggest some cards you could put in.

I'll start out with suggesting some boardwipes. Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Planar Cleansing , and Flood of Tears are some things you should look into.

More ways to stop the opponent's creatures would help. Lawmage's Binding , Frogify , and Kasmina's Transmutation stop creatures from using their abilities. Immolating Glare , Conclave Tribunal and Path to Exile are also things you should consider.

More counterspells would help too. Counterspell , Disallow , Devious Cover-Up , Void Shatter , and Absorb will stop your opponents from playing the spells they want to play.

I have a couple creature suggestions as well. God-Eternal Kefnet can cast your instants and sorceries twice, and Angel of Grace can save you from the brink.

A few miscellaneous cards that you should consider are Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Control Magic , Lightning Greaves , and Sphinx's Insight .

Some cards to cut would be:

Flux Channeler , Cancel , No Escape , Dissolve , Blind Obedience (since it has in the card and therefore cannot be used since your commander is ), and Psychic Corrosion .

Hope this helps!

Too many 1/2-ofs.

I think you want 6 discard spells, mixing Thoughtseize and Thought Erasure . You also definitely want 3-4 Fatal Push .

Drown in the Loch , Utter End , Render Silent and Murderous Cut seems like cards that are often pretty bad; I think you should either go all in on Absorb , or consider Sinister Sabotage or Void Shatter for easier color requirements.

Also - badly wants Narset, Parter of Veils , and some number of wraths.

Cheers!
