Whirlpool Warrior Discussion
6 days ago
First of all, sorry for the loooooooooooooooooong time without posting here, guys. I was really busy with college.
dbpunk Both pacts would be better as a finisher instead of the blue one, but I use Pact of Negation because it is a good counter. Being able to combo with Hive Mind is just an "extra". I use HV mostly to have 4 wheels in the stack. Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt and seems to be evil and fun. I'll try them, thanks!
goblinguiderevealpls I couldn't agree more with you. I'm starting to change this type of cards. Thanks!
TheRedGoat I'm thinking about replacing Kami of the Crescent Moon for Duskmantle Guildmage. I need to test a little bit more. I didn't want to make a competitive deck. I love how casual and fun a EDH game can be. However, every wednesday there is a small multplayer tournament in a store near home. I've been successful with this list so far and I do not intend to run it has an 1v1 deck.
niels_bom You are right! Thanks for the heads up!!

a friend of mine plays this deck. I saw him using these cards, which you might find interesting to review:
- Phyrexian Altar
- Jace's Archivist
- Magus of the Wheel
- Whirlpool Warrior
- Mystic Remora
- Faithless Looting
- Recurring Insight
- Time Reversal
It's a deck that plays well and doens't have to be very powerful to have lots of great times.I hope the suggestions give you some new ideas.

I'm surprised you're not running Thought Reflection, Otherworld Atlas, or Mind Over Matter. Same with Winds of Change and Whirlpool Warrior, all are very strong in decks that seek to draw many things.

Okay, all the following can go as they are either too expensive or not instants or sorceries. You need to focus on Niv's strengths if you are going to win even casual games ;)

Pretty great decklist! The Locust God is a super great commander and it relatively simple to build, just include a bunch of card draw and wheels and you can just overwhelm opponents! There are four pillars of card types that need to be addressed when building EDH; mana ramp, card draw, spot removal, and boardwipes, in an approximate 10-10-5-5 split. Since your commander focuses on card draw so much, we can probably increase that number a little bit.
You're a little under for ramp at the time of this post. Your commander is a little on the high end for cmc so we want to hit six mana reliably. Primal Amulet Flip, Ashnod's Altar, Izzet Signet, and Thought Vessel are all highly advised.
You have a nice healthy number of card draw effects, but there's a couple notable ones that would probably be worth including. Skullclamp is absolutely gross in that for one mana, you can clamp a Locust to draw two cards and make two more. With Ashnod's Altar, this becomes an infinite loop allowing you to draw your whole deck. Bident of Thassa is great in that your evasive hasty tokens will now make more evasive hasty tokens just for doing their thing. Arjun, the Shifting Flame is a great repeatable wheel on an evasive beater. Whirlpool Warrior allows you to redraw your hand twice for a low cost. Windfall is a strong classic. Jace's Archivist is another repeatable wheel. Mindmoil is an enchantment, which means it's more difficult to remove, but it also has Arjun's ability on it.
Removal looks good; counterspells count.
Boardwipes are where your problem is; you're running 0 as of now. Even in a token-focused build, having a panic button is always important in case someone else is faster than you. Good news is your commander is resistant to commander tax due to its returns-to-hand clause and you can rebuild fairly quickly.
Cyclonic Rift is such a versatile removal spell/boardclear that it's included in almost every blue deck ever. Blasphemous Act will almost always cost R in this list. Vandalblast allows you to blow up all your opponent's mana rocks and other troublesome artifacts. Incendiary Command does double duty as a Pyroclasm and a Wheel effect. This way, Locust God survives and remakes your board after you burn the little dudes.
Last thing to consider is upgrading your vanilla and french vanilla creatures to things that always play into your game plan. That's just a part of searching your collection for cool cards you've always wanted to try out and then trying them out!
Good luck brewing!

Library of Leng is great in Nekusar for avoiding your own discards. Also no max hand size is nice. Perplex is nice as a counterspell if you need it, but its real value is in tutoring for 3 cmc cards. I think Eye of the Storm is really funny in Nekusar if you can get multiple wheel effects on it. Whirlpool Warrior is a wheel effect on a stick. Ebony Owl Netsuke is a good pain card.
