Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

Madcookie on Jhoira gonna get your ass beat, mang!

2 days ago

Hi, mate. Looks like you need help with the deck and I have some spare time so lets get to it.Firstly I think you have too many creatures, some of which don't have good synergy with the deck idea, mainly Flameblast Dragon, Jhoira's Timebug, Mercurial Chemister, Rift Elemental, Shivan Sand-Mage, Timebender. Some of those remove time counters but are just weak overall.I also don't like the wall cycle, the tempo gain from blocking a big creature is negligible in a multiplayer format and your wall still dies, I'd replace those too for say a Propaganda. Archivist can be replaced with Arcanis the Omnipotent same mana from jhoira, 2 more cards.

As for the spells Clockspinning, Fury Charm, Mana Leak and Timecrafting don't go enough to warrant a place in the deck and i think you should try to replace them with some kind of draw spells or counterspells without unless they play etc. Think Counterspell or Cancel

About the land base: Faerie Conclave, Looming Spires Soaring Seacliff are simply basic taplands that will slow you down immensely. Magosi, the Waterveil Shimmering Grotto Thespian's Stage don't do enough either. If you are solid on keeping Magosi, the Waterveil you need to add something to proliferate in order to get free counters instead of keep skipping turns. maybe Contagion Engine but it won't remove counters from suspended cards so its pretty much only for this 1 card.

For spot removal you can add Chaos Warp or maybe a Pongify for something especially nasty. Otherwise counter spells should be fine if someone targets you, and you should have the mana open anyway since you dont need to cast anything on your turn.

You can also add maybe 1-2 cards to protect jhoira from removal cost wise they go Swiftfoot Boots<Whispersilk Cloak<Lightning Greaves<Darksteel Plate

Lastly I'd put Drift of Phantasms just for the transmute ability to get Paradox Haze. Its one of my favorite cards and in your deck it will work wonders. Hope my advices will be of use to you and if you have any other questions feel free to ask. Cheers :)

My apologies.

I confused this with being a Standard deck.

If you're going for evasion you might also want to include:

superhuman21 on Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

Ok keithallenlaw I'll attempt to justify what I'd do.
Cards to Remove:
-Gray Merchant of Asphodel: This card is expensive and the ETB is the only highlight of it. Without reanimating it or cloning this isn't worth the slow IMO.
-Skirge Familiar: The ability of this card is counterproductive. You have a huge amount of mana stones, so 1 blk mana isn't ideal for the cost of a card which you don't want to discard.
-Thran Turbine: At the surface this looks ok, but there are alot of mana rocks already and you could be doing other things.
-Ajani's Pridemate:It sounds good but you're just not doing a lot of protection or focus on counters. There are better options for the slow.

-Psychosis Crawler: for 5 this is a gamble that you'll have cards in your hand to make it worth while. This is better in a blue deck with a large hand.

Cards to Consider Filling Space:
-Vampire Nighthawk: A staple in lifegain orzhova decks. a flying/deathtouch/lifelink for 3 is a steal.
-Test of Endurance or Felidar Sovereign: Obvious alt win-cons in a lifegain deck.
-Ivory Cup: This works with ANYONE playing a white spell. the 1life you gain for 1 can help you trigger lifegain combos which are important.
-Tablet of the Guilds: An overlooked 2 drop. You can easily start gaining life with this and use it to help activate/chain your lifegain combos.
-Debt to the Deathless: this can be very fatal if someone doesn't counter it.
-Lightning Greaves, Whispersilk Cloak, Swiftfoot Boots are all good to help protect your important creatures like drogskol and oloro, etc.
-Wrath of God, Nevinyrral's Disk, Planar Cleansing:Board wipes care great and can help you out in a pinch if you tutor for them.
-Kambal, Consul of Allocation: If you had to pick another commander for a deck it is this guy.
-Ephara, God of the Polis: This god is a great drop price. He also can allow you to get card draw. On top of this he is indestruct and has a decent strength/tough.
-Trigon of Mending: This isn't a superb card but it'll help you to keep gaining life which can combo with other cards for crazy effect.

Anyways those are some of my recommendations explained. Hope the explanation helps a bit where I'm coming from which what I play in Oloro.

puxing on Vorosh good stuff

1 week ago

Hi, I also play some sort of goodstuff random cards in my Vorosh EDH deck.
How do you finish the game most of the time?

Normally I end up equipping a creature with Whispersilk Cloak and beating them that way.
Or maybe a Sorin Markov but not a lot of other things.

So I am curious how you do it!

Condenserhead on DINOQUAKE!!! (Dinosaur/Land Destruction EDH)

1 week ago

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it. I was thinking about using Star of Extinction + Heroic Intervention as a potential combo, as well as putting Boros Charm in there as another way to protect my dinos. In terms of removal, I only have Terminus in there as a complete board wipe, largely because it would bury my dinos rather than send them to the graveyard, at which point Gishath, Sun's Avatar would still be able to retrieve them. After running a couple simulations, I agree, I need some additional card draw; Mind's Eye and Elemental Bond are two that I am absolutely going to work in.

As for Reverberate my main reason for having it in the deck is twofold. First, it gives me a small amount of protection against counter-spells, so I can hold it until I am ready to cast something potentially game-winning to ensure that the spell goes off. Second, if I am not playing against a control deck, I can use it to tutor since I am out of black. Beyond that, it can also serve a utility purpose of being additional ramp or spot removal as a two cost.

Berserkers' Onslaught, Stranglehold, and Elixir of Immortality are all cards that I have been extremely wish-washy over. Ultimately, I think you are right; they are probably cards that would be best served as a sideboard depending on the meta. Chaosphere seems like a great addition over any of those three. I might also include something like a Whispersilk Cloak to make sure my commander gets through to trigger its ability.

Again, I appreciate the input.

Rogue's Passage and Whispersilk Cloak can make sure you connect. Also there are a lot of tribal benefit cards in the recent precons and Ixalan that could be useful to you as well. (Their names escape me atm).

Hope it helps, looks great so far though. +1

cuelix on Teysa deck

1 week ago

I think b/w's targeted removal is the strongest and most versatile in the game so I would include all of these if I could:

maybe include a few more board wipes? resetting the board before you get to 7 mana for your general could be a good idea.

include Temple of the False God and Myriad Landscape in your land base to help you ramp up maybe Wayfarer's Bauble

Coldsteel Heart is another mana rock you could run.

I see you run Whispersilk Cloak the unblockable is a little redundant on teysa because she already has protection from creatures but maybe you like it for some of your other creatures. Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots are always safe includes. Gives you haste instead of unblockable and has cheaper casting and equip costs than the cloak!

solarseraph on Arahbo's Kitted-Out Kitties

Hey sagramore, great looking deck! I'm building a Kitty Equipment deck too. It's a Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist Voltron deck so it plays a bit differently, but a lot of concepts transfer. I'll come back and post a link once I spruce it up if you like.

I have to say, Puresteel Paladin is amazing, and for me worth the price. He's a draw engine, and when you pair him with Leonin Shikari things get nuts - free, instant-speed equipping turns your equipment into answers, especially ones like Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate.

Those two are great fetch targets for Uncage the Menagerie, which is inexpensive both to buy and cast. (I don't rely on Cat Tribal as much, so I usually fetch a Puresteel Paladin and Stoneforge Mystic with Uncage). Also, if you haven't thought about it, Dispatch is one of the lesser-known spot exile spells. A budget card compared to something like Path to Exile, but it works in artifact-heavy decks.

Could I recommend swapping your Hunter's Prowess for Soul's Majesty? Same casting cost, so it doesn't affect your curve. HP is only better draw if your opponent blocks for less than three damage, and is easily interrupted by tapping, bouncing, destroying, or just plain blocking the creature. I ran both in my deck for a time, but I like SM better.

I saw some discussion about Bloodforged Battle-Axe in the other comments - I have to say I like it. As one guy said, it can eat your mana and turns if you focus on equipping all the copies. However, three or four cards mean you don't have to. With Sigarda's Aid or Hammer of Nazahn in play, all of the copies auto-equip when they hit the battlefield! This is especially gratifying when you have a double-striker, because copies of the Axe are made during the first damage step, and auto-equip before second damage is dealt. That quadruples your Axes instead of doubling them. Balan, Wandering Knight can attach copies to himself, so you can do the same trick with him at instant speed for two mana without either of the other support cards. And if you spring for that Puresteel Paladin... then Paladin.

I love that you included Asceticism and Heroic Intervention. I run both myself :) If I can get a hold of Teferi's Protection I will. Gotta love anti-boardwipe.

As far as Trailblazer's Boots in your Maybeboard, I currently run it, but I'm thinking of replacing it with Whispersilk Cloak, which you already included. The boots just don't do a whole lot for the card slot they take up when you could have better equipment in its place. On the other hand, I'm running Mirri as my commander, so I don't usually pump with Arahbo, Roar of the World, and Whispersilk prevents you from doing that. Maybe trample is all we really need? Playtesting will tell!

Oh! One last thing: Descendants' Path is a card I ran when I was sticking closer to the Tribal theme. I since removed it, but it means free Kitties!
