Whelming Wave Discussion

TheSurgeon on The Mind That Frayed Away (Mill)

2 weeks ago

Take out: Jace, Memory Adept, and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, and Jace's Phantasm walkers don't win you games in modern mill, they waste mana, and are too slow. Phantasm is ok at best, usually too little too late. Get yerself some Hedron Crabs to replace these.

Whelming Wave is.. Meh. You could do better with Damnation, or a few cheap guaranteed turn buyers like Darkness.

4x Fraying Sanity is too much. 3 at most. Same with Mind Funeral. 4x Breaking will do more faster.

Mesmeric Orb and Crypt Incursion should be in your MB. NEVER put more mill in your SB. You need protection from your rival decks, not more gas. Your game 1 should be full throttle, if you can't win with speed or hit a block in your strategy, games 2&3 is where you account for opposing problems. That's what your SB is for.

If you're worried about draw, try some Remand to run a bit of disruption, trigger Mesmeric Orb, and it replaces itself.

Mod it, and I'll take a look and see if I can help u further.

I'll be the one and outright say that I don't like the Mindcrank/Duskmantle Guildmage combo. I think it's too fragile, especially when there is so much removal in the format that can take care of it.

I will make a coupe of suggestions in cards you can/should look at for this style of mill. Sphinx's Tutelage is extremely surprising. You will be impressed with how well this card performs in mill. Also look at Crypt Incursion for life gain VS creature decks as you buy time for the mill.

Another weird card that may help that NO-ONE will see coming is Whelming Wave. Will 99.9% hurt your opponent having to recast their stuff than it will you and it will DESTROY token decks.

Maybe even playtest with one or two Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip in it. When he flips you can re-cast all your crap from your graveyard.

If you want to take a look at my mill deck, it's The Mind That Slipped Away. You might see some other ideas.

Cheers.

I just want to note that a couple turns of mana rock ramp followed by Sunder, followed by Whelming Wave, followed by Windfall is basically good game.

Mike94 on NEED HELP with Tromokratis

2 months ago

Maybe it's a daring idea but why not try to build a Tromokratis voltron deck? He is bulky and could easily deal 21 commander damage if you equip him with the right gear.

Play a lot of mana-rocks to get him out as early as possible like Lotus Bloom, Thran Dynamo, Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens. Even Sapphire Medallion and High Tide help this strategy. Tromokratis wants to be blocked but that would be a set back for your gameplan so evasion is your friend. Archetype of Imagination could help your commander hit face for example.

If you go the voltron route I would definitely play these equipments:

Each Mirrodin sword would be an auto include but could maybe be to expensive to buy but I would at least try to fit in Sword of Feast and Famine.

Since you're in blue there are a lot of ways to search for artifacts.

I would also play some mono-blue staples like Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora to draw as much of you deck as possible.

And last of I would play some disruptive spells to ensure you're not overwhelmed by other tempo decks that tend to go wide like:

I love mono colored decks in EDH since they play the toughest game but excel at one main goal. It's hard to make them work against those fancy multi colored decks and it could become a big investment but from one mono-colored EDH player to another, it's worth it! +1

Welcome to the Magic community and congrats on building your first deck! You can certainly build around your commander but if you would rather double down on the Lovecraft-style monster theme, consider adding some more ramp to the deck and some cards that will let you do silly things because your sea-monsters. Of course, you can't forget to add some more tentacled monsters as well. With that in mind, here are a some of my suggestions for the deck. Hope this helps and that the building goes well for you!

Cthulu's Friends: Lorthos, the Tidemaker, Fleet Swallower, Stormtide Leviathan, Sire of Stagnation, Scourge of Fleets, Stormsurge Kraken, Elder Deep-Fiend, Kederekt Leviathan, Trench Gorger, Inkwell Leviathan, Deep-Sea Kraken, Grozoth

Ramp: Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Hedron Archive, Thought Vessel, Thran Dynamo, Talisman of Dominance, Mind Stone, Dreamstone Hedron, Commander's Sphere, Dreamscape Artist, Walking Atlas

Cheat-y Stuff: Quest for Ula's Temple, Quicksilver Amulet, Whelming Wave, Omen Machine, Braids, Conjurer Adept, Gate to the AEther, Gate to the AEther, Timesifter, Paradox Haze

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Jalira budget (30$ deck)

3 months ago

Looks pretty great; I built a Jalira list myself recently, and she's an absolute blast to play. I'd swap out Tromokratis and Lorthos, the Tidemaker since you actually can't flip them with Jalira (she specifies nonlegendary). I suggest including Inkwell Leviathan as a replacement beater and Talrand, Sky Summoner as an additional token generator. If you want other big creature budget ideas Pathrazer of Ulamog, Frost Titan, Stormsurge Kraken, Artisan of Kozilek, and Deep-Sea Kraken are all pretty cheap.

Definitely recommend some board clears to help stabilize yourself into the lategame so you can actually get the big dudes out. Whelming Wave, Engulf the Shore, and Crush of Tentacles are all pretty good in this respect.

There's also some cheap lands that can make tokens for you to sacrifice lategame to make sure you don't run out of gas; Foundry of the Consuls, Spawning Bed, and Cradle of the Accursed.

I'm gonna link my build here in case you ever want to go above $30 as your budget; don't worry, there's nothing crazy expensive in here except for the Blightsteel Colossus I opened in a booster pack back in the day: Jalira Big Dumb Beaters EDH

JoeMoMo499 on Did you want to play?

Engulf the Shore or Whelming Wave since it has pretty much the same condition, but isn't reliant on lands that this deck often overlooks?
