Wrexial, the Risen Deep Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Attack of the Clones

Dimir Doppelganger as another unique Clone variant, Phenax, God of Deception as a way to get more opponents' creatures in graveyards and something to do during board stalls, Whispering Madness to destroy control players and transform Lazav, Psychic Strike as an on-theme counterspell, and Wrexial, the Risen Deep to take advantage of milled instants and sorceries.

So I am loving the idea of a pirate deck.. because of you I am now mulling over building one. I am adding Rogue's Passage to my build. Works great with Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Kukemssa Pirates

FaithfulCorpse on Oona, the Queen Fae EDH

For GaryofAshpodel Consuming Aberration feels a little weak given that the main sources of mill, at least repeatable ones are Oona, and with Leyline of the Void down it would do effectively nothing. I had also considered Wrexial, the Risen Deep but decided against it for the same reason.

For JaysomeDecks Perhaps I'm not understanding Training Grounds right. Wouldn't it only apply a 'free' cast of -2 on the announced cost? Like declaring as the cost, and then only having to provide ?

Welcome on T/O.

It's a great place with lots of helpful players and interesting decks. A good place to improve your deck.

After reviewing your decklist I have the following land suggestions to add:

Going to 36 lands, looking at your mana curve, is probably a good thing to do.

I did not play with or against Sen myself, so I find it hard to pick a few cards that I shouldn't be playing. Looking at the curve I would cut:

The rest is up to you.

Have fun and if you like to check out my favorite deck, then feel free to visit it here.

Grafdigger's Cage and Relic of Progenitus are other good options for graveyard hate. I know the Cage doesn't work with all of the recursion you're running, but Leyline of the Void has a higher cmc and can miss cards before it enters the battlefield. Also, Grafdigger's Cage is good insurance against dedicated graveyard based decks.

Maybe not the best card ever, but Wrexial, the Risen Deep seems like it would be fun in the deck.

Wrexial, the Risen Deep does fit the theme however I have tried to avoid creatures that need to deal damage to a player for their ability to work. None of those are terrible and all of them could go in the deck but currently I prefer cards that always get 1 extra cast over cards that get you 0 to infinite. One of the few in the deck right now is Maelstrom Archangel but that only got in because I was looking for cards that work with Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder.

The cards that need to damage a player for free casts are Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Maelstrom Archangel, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, Master of Predicaments, Mindleech Mass, Silent-Blade Oni and cipher cards.

Yo Jimmy John,

YOu don't have to take any of this advise, but heres just some suggestions.

Cut suggestions: Wrexial, the Risen Deep - Could be cool. Doesn't impact the board enough when he comes into play. Even then, he is situational. They may not have anything. A Relic of Progenitus could have went off and then he does nothing. :( I like him a lot though.

Blind Obedience - Not sure whether this should be Frozen AEther. Hmm

Stormscape Familiar - Now, I wouldn't say just take this guy out, but if you want to play all those artifacts and 1 drop colored spells, he really feels like a do nothing. You could easy make him amazing though. He's in the right colors obviously.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury - Too cute. Doesn't do enough.

Omniscience - You know why.

Counterspell - Double blue in the 3 color deck might hurt early game. Should be a Memory Lapse? Could be cool to cast the spell you put on top of their deck. Who knows. Also works way better with Stormscape Familiar.

Body Double - He's just not good when you have black. Also, look at your creatures. What is the best thing you can reanimate. Is it worth setting up and then paying 5 mana?

Diabolic Tutor - Eh, just diabolic tutor. Your call of course.

Academy Rector - No more Omniscience :(

Parallel Thoughts - Doesn't do anything..

Power Artifact - You don't synergize with the infinite colorless mana.

Cards I REALLY like:

Telepathy - Card is bonkers in here.

Head Games - Obviously great for ripping a hand to shreds.

Tezzeret the Seeker - Searches for Fellwar Stone, Chromatic Lantern, Phyrexian Metamorph when you put that in, and Relic of Progenitus when you put that in. Unless you'd rather play Leyline of the Void. You'd need some control in this control deck.

Fellwar Stone, Chromatic Lantern, and Exotic Orchard - Obviously an incredible choice in this deck haha.

Remand - Card is so awesome for triplets.

Time Spiral and Windfall - Great for Triplets again. Love it

Jace, the Mind Sculptor - Excites me to think about popping creatures to hand and then casting them for myself AHAHAHAHA!

Baleful Strix - You know I like that card. And you know why. Because it's good as fluck. And tutorable with Tezzeret.

Turnabout - I definitely think I like this card in here. It locks your opponent down on their turn so you can rip up their hand on yours. Also feels good to untap cabal coffers along with the rest of your lands again.

Cards that should go in:

Liliana of the Veil - After taking what you need, you make them ditch whatever else they have. You obviously shouldn't care about your hand. Just take care of the twins.

Lightning Greaves - Speaking of taking care of the twins. Take care of her.

Forbid - I know it's double blue, but it's too good with Necropotence, works with Stormscape Familiar, and is incredible for keeping the twins alive.

Vendilion Clique - Combat Tricks, Refills their hand just for you. Good attacker of course. But it's double blue. Up to you!

Devastation Tide or Kederekt Leviathan - You NEEEEED a field wipe in a control deck my man. My as well attempt to pop all those artifacts back to their hand and cast them yourself. AHAHAHAHA also, you already have the shitty Animate Dead for the combo. (;

Aura of Silence : is dope as a pope.

Anguished Unmaking: It's good.

Phyrexian Metamorph: Tutorable by Tezzeret the Seeker and is just bonkers.

Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb: Yeah

Toxic Deluge, or Supreme Verdict: Up to you. They're both amazing.

Sakashima the Impostor - Might want to replace Clever Impersonator

Dude this will be so fun!
