SaberTech on Cliffhaven Vampire - Pauper Extortion EDH

2 days ago

I think that your deck could do without some of your lifegain sorceries. Cards like Alms of the Vein, Last Caress, and Vampiric Touch don't have a big enough impact to be worth including, particularly if you are playing a group game.

If you are looking to make the most of your extort cards, you could try to find engines that will give you increasing value over the course of the game. Whitemane Lion, Kor Skyfisher, Conviction, and Sun Clasp can all return themselves to your hand, giving you multiple opportunities to get extort triggers.

Unfortunately, Inquisitor Exarch and Orzhov Guildmage have never been printed as commons so you can't use them as part of your 99 (assuming this deck is meant for paper play, since I don't know about the alternate rarities in online formats).

JuQ on Just an Old Fashioned Enchantment Deck

1 week ago

Looks like you are missing Femeref Enchantress, maybe even Sram, Senior Edificer because you are aura heavy (I guess Kor Spiritdancer goes out of budget). Perhaps Sigarda's Aid?

You could Swap Cultivate and your mana rocks (keeping Sol Ring) for enchantress friendly Overgrowth-like land auras.

You can get some recursion with Emeria Shepherd, Silent Sentinel, Dowsing Shaman, Nomad Mythmaker and Sun Titan.

You can capitalize on karametra's trigger with Whitemane Lion and Kor Skyfisher like creatures.

Horn of Greed won't trigger from the lands you get from ramping effects like karametra or cultuivate because you don't play them.

Hey ripka82, fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

You have 20 artifacts, could benefit from Puresteel Paladin for Draw/Equip . Add Ancient Den and Tree of Tales to up your artifacts even more.

Sigarda's Aid would be a nice addition too, especially with Bloodforged Battle-Axe.

Adorned Pouncer is awesome, doubles the equipment power bonuses, can output some massive damage, double triggers like Bloodforged Battle-Axe, and he has build in recursion as a 4/4 double strike! Skyhunter Skirmisher to a lesser degree is good too.

Swords to Plowshares can be good control, or a nice lifegain if you need it (especially with a pumped up cat), cool with Felidar Sovereign. Path to Exile can be a good control, or a land fetch if your struggling with mana issues. Condemn is good, but it only gets attackers, often, the most dangerous creatures you want to remove don't attack.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos is nice for making tokens (on attack and block), but not a necessity.

Ajani, Caller of the Pride is a great double strike enabler, Lost Leonin seems like an auto-include with all that equipment for him to equip.

Lot's of ETB-Tapped lands in this build, can work on upgrading them ($$$ SUCKS), you can look at my deck for land ideas, but in general it's the most expensive component in building these decks.

Sacred Cat is a nice CMC1 () 4/4 (eminence) Lifelink, with recursive 4/4 (eminence) Lifeline

You could look at abusing Healer of the Pride with an Aluren, Whitemane Lion or a Fleetfoot Panther any of those guys can go infinite life with her.

Temur Sabertooth has some infinite ETB interactions, but none that are that great.

You could Heroic Intervention into a Divine Reckoning or Rout, gives you protection from board wipe (including your equipment from a Vandalblast or similar others).

Rupture Spire needs to be gone into the shredder, never use that land. Like ever. Explosive Vegetation could be Kodama's Reach to bring your CMC down a bit.

You could pair down your artifacts/equipments and add more tutoring to consistently get the same "excellent" rated artifacts game after game, like Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Etc. Instead of Behemoth Sledge tutor a Loxodon Warhammer instead kind of deal.

These lands are just too slow Arctic Flats. If your having a mana issue, maybe try Birds of Paradise or putting some conditional check dual lands, or cheap pain lands like City of Brass / Mana Confluence for the time being.

Could use the same strategy on creatures, instead of a High CMC Nacatl War-Pride, Eladamri's Call a Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith and get a free Hammer of Nazahn and have all your equipments auto-equip for the same CMC.

It's a good deck, I think your on track, I would include Triumph of the Hordes as an alternate to damage win-con (against other infinite life decks anyway, or when you need to fast kill a Grixis or something fast).

Cheers +1

Blo on Zacama, primal calamity and panharmonicon

3 weeks ago

The fact that mana abilities don't use the stack doesn't matter though. After resolving a spell or ability, the active player (you) receives priority.
So when you resolve Zacama and the two Panharmonicon triggers go on the stack, you let the first one resolve, tap your mana and activate any ability if you wish before the second can resolve.
You could for example tap all your mana; cast a Whitemane Lion, choose to target to bounce the Lion AND zacama with the triggers, since they are doubled as well, and resolve all that before you untap the lands for the second time.

Other than that addition Sonel666 is fully correct :).

K34 on Karlov of the Life Succ

Whitemane Lion goes great with that Aetherflux reservoir you're running. Just keep playing it as often as you can and enjoy the counters Karlov gets.

t3hdarkness on Did Someone Say... HOLY FIRE??

If you want to reinforce the flicker theme you could use a few cards.Flickerwisp, Eldrazi Displacer, Restoration Angel, and Whitemane Lion, Mimic Vat, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Flickerform, and Conjurer's Closet.

Cards that deal damage when you play a creature are fit both a flicker theme and play well in R/W.Pandemonium, Warstorm Surge, Electropotence, Impact Tremors

Uou could also use a few more strong ETB Effects like Sun Titan, Emrakul's Hatcher (Which Goes Infinite with Displacer), Karmic Guide
