Didgeridooda on Merieke vi Brittania (How to Dominate and Destroy)

My main deck is Merieke. I have much more of a control build. Wub Wub Deck if you want to check it out.

I do think you need some amount of control aside from your commander. Via board wipes, counters, tucks, or a combination of each. Hinder , Spell Crumple , Condemn , Oblation are all great cards.

I also think you would greatly benefit from some more mana rocks, and draw. Mystic Remora , Rhystic Study , Phyrexian Arena are all great draw cards.

Gilded Lotus , Darksteel Ingot , Chromatic Lantern would be the very minimum of what I would add. Land Tax is also great.

Hallowed Fountain , Watery Grave , Godless Shrine in place of some basics would help your mana base. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Cabal Coffers is a great addition.

Howdy there! Wondering if you'd care to trade your Watery Grave for my Sliver Hivelord . Email me at moore.j.james@gmail.com if you're interested!

slovakattack on A Little Lesson In Recursion Theory

GlistenerAgent, no, that sounds pretty accurate. However, I've usually found that the advantage that 4 colors has over 3 is that it's much easier to search up alternate colors by using only a single half of the card color.

Yes, my optimal T1 is a black mana, but that can be fetched with all the fetches listed. (Verdant Catacombs obviously fetches it, as does Polluted Delta , but Windswept Heath is just as capable of snagging an Overgrown Tomb , Godless Shrine and Watery Grave on turn 1, or any other.

Indeed, I've found it quite useful to heavily spec into green, as it is the color needed to cast Sylvan Caryatid and Abrupt Decay (and to a lesser extent, Maelstrom Pulse ) which is important for killing Blood Moon . I do see what you're saying, and I doubt the deck would be any worse off with the way you've set up your mana. However, it'd mean about a couple hundred dollar difference to me at the moment, as I managed to get a set of Windswept Heath for very cheap!)

I will keep testing, obviously, and if it truly makes a massive impact, I can liquidate my set of Heath in order to procure Polluted Delta .

nickiru on 2014-09-20 update of Synergic Efficiency

5 days ago

nbarry223: Yah I have heavily compared Mul Daya Channelers with Courser of Kruphix . I ditermined that it was worth more to have mul daya because mid-late game she is a 5/5 assault force, while at the beginning she is usually 50% of the time beast or mana ramp. the extra 2 mana of any color really helps cast certain cards as well as quantity of cards.

Kruphix gives me direct card advantage and more top deck control; however, she can't really kill someone. a 2/4 is just a defensive unit to me. but that was my reasoning lol, I am still debating with myself with picking which... for now, mul daya.

primalhunted: I have recently began to really like Fiery Justice . I 'may'... replace Electrolyze with justice. It would rid of blue, however justice is not an instant so kiki pod can get by me possibly.... thinkin about it...

I would definitely put in Tectonic Edge if I had room within my greedy mana base. Thus swapping out Electrolyze for Fiery Justice is sounding more appealing because I can swap Watery Grave with Tectonic Edge .

I will keep Sejiri Steppe at 2. I regretted playing only 1 when I was testing and 3 was to many. I have only ever needed 2 so... there it sat at 2. I believe that's fine.

Slayers' Stronghold is an important piece in Knight of the Reliquary 's tool kit. She can instantly get that and slap haste on one of my guys who just came down. or it can buff herself up making her swing vigilance so she can still tap to Sejiri Steppe protect herself. To me I think stronghold is necessary; a helpful offensive tool.

hiroryusaki yah it is EXTREMELY greedy. Like a pirate. But what's not efficient about it? all the cards intertwine in some sweet manner. Each card is on its own threatening, while having synergy with others. Elaborate if you may? :D

SAKANA-CHAN on Legacy of the Fae \(>ω<\)

Hi Kaweiwu!!

lol :) yes but Favorable Winds is legacy legal, not Black Lotus . the expensive cards in this deck are the dual lands. They could be changed out with shock lands, like Watery Grave which would drop the price dramatically. the reason i have the expensive dual lands is that parts of the deck is proxed. I only play with my friends and they are hardcore mtg players and play legacy. They do not care if i use proxed lands, as i only play for fun. :) also the deck is very balanced as it is and Favorable Winds is a really good card for this deck. it packs some real punch when you have a bunch of 1/1 tokens from Bitterblossom . promise! :D if i ever was going to start play competitive i would probably use shock lands to keep the price down. Black Lotus is a really broken card arguably the most broken card in mtg, and it is not legal in legacy. This deck is not broken as it is, and i don't like to play with broken decks. so sorry there will never be a black lotus in this deck.

Good day! :D


Tilwin on Pauper Reanimator

Make room for a Iona, Shield of Emeria . Once she hits the battlefield she is a nightmare to deal with, especially if you have denied their removal color.
You already have 4 Exhumes in mainboard so you cannot add 2 more in sideboard.
Watch out for Force of Will since they can be a nightmare to deal with. If you can afford, get some of your own.
Diversify your mana base. Watery Grave s are probably your best choice, and with the appearance of them in standard and hence their decrease in price, Polluted Delta s can also help a lot. Plus they can combo nicely with Brainstorm .
Watch out for Rest in Peace , Grafdigger's Cage , Cremate , Tormod's Crypt and other reanimator hatred cards. I would make sure to sideboard some cheap counters for them (besides Force of Will I can think of Spell Pierce and Mental Misstep ).
Other than that not sure how much more I could recommend given that I am not really a legacy player... but I love reanimator decks.

If this is post rotation then why is Watery Grave in the deck list. But other than that it seems really good.
