Volrath's Stronghold Discussion

Rzepkanut on Dr. General Tazri Jumblemorph?!?

Hello everyone! Got some responses...

  • MagicalHacker: Thanks for the great lists! I've been a fan for quite a while. I agree lots of graveyard recursion seems important here. Not going to be able to include Volrath's Stronghold for budget reasons but its a great idea.

  • Pieguy396: Thanks for the suggestion, seems like a good one. I especially like that it's a land and won't really take up a slot in the deck (just like the Volrath's Stronghold...except not as good lol).

  • enpc: Yeah I thought of the Sliver Overlord too, but it's quite a bit more money and more mana too. This being an un-deck I'm even less excited to get pricey cards for it. Also I was thinking that the pump effect on General Tazri should be cool with Arcane Adaptation or Conspiracy...something which the Sliver doesn't really do either.

Thanks again for all the ideas everyone!! I've been busy brewing version 1.0 on my phone since I posted about this. When it's ready for outside input I'll post a link to it here.

A personal favorite in these kind of decks is Teferi's Puzzle Box its synergy with your commander is fantastic.

I feel with your commander Forced Fruition could be used effectively.

Frozen AEther another slow them down enchantment.

Volrath's Stronghold creature recur.

maybe Maze of Ith to help remove a commander or some big attacker that you need not hit you that you cant block?

very nice deck. I like the synergies. hopefully you don't run into someone who runs Stranglehold

I would recomend Volrath's Stronghold as another way to reanimate constantly.

I think this is the best direction to go with him if you want 5C. Be sure to run plenty of ways to recur him from the graveyard should he die if he will be necessary to the deck to function (MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards). I'd aim for 14 cards off of that list, some of which can do other stuff too, like Volrath's Stronghold being a part of the manabase.

First I would address that I run both Umezawa's Jitte and Skullclamp equipments, not just one.

  • Guul Draz Assassin - I feel that the level up mechanic is slow and clumsy, and that it gets an activated ability that taps it, just kills its usefullness.

  • Patron of the Vein - I played Patron for a while, but found that the mana cost was just too high.

  • Drana's Emissary - doesn't do enough to justify the poor stats (2/2 for 3)

  • Yahenni, Undying Partisan - I could run it, but I am weary when it comes to adding more 3 drops

  • Kalastria Highborn - a solid 2/2 for 2, that I have no excuse for not running, thank you.

Phyrexian Reclamation I have Volrath's Stronghold to get creatures back, but it is only really when I'm completely out of gas, or if I want to keep a Contamination going, that I use it.

Unclaimed Territory and Cavern of Souls, where I agree that I would like to play Cavern of Souls, I dont have it, and with the price tag on it I think it could be better spent elsewhere. as for Unclaimed Territory most of the time I don't have a problem casting my creatures, my main concern is the spells.

Hey there, so I added Volrath's Stronghold to my binder to see if I could get a Serra's Sanctum out of a trade. So it's not available but I do have a Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Soul's Attendant I could trade from your want list. Would Magus of the Moon and Dovin Baan be a workable trade?

Prying Blade help get that treasure count up.

Academy Ruins, Volrath's Stronghold and Cavern of Souls would be great in this list.

Rishadan Brigand and/or Rishadan Cutpurse.

Academy Ruins and Volrath's Stronghold would be very useful in this list.

Expedition Map! For the flavor and because it's an EDH staple.
