Wrexial, the Risen Deep Discussion

Wrexial, the Risen Deep would be good here.

@HauntinYou - Thanks for the great comment!

  1. Withered Wretch seems like a great idea and I'll have to find a place for it.

  2. Fatespinner is another great card I'd love to add for pillow fort reasons.

  3. It is a very nice combo but it would require taking away too much of the deck so I probably won't include it. I also like to have cards in graveyards for other cards in the deck.

  4. Wrexial, the Risen Deep is a really good card, but it doesn't actually contribute to milling so I'm on the fence about adding it.

  5. Nemesis of Reason is a card I've always wanted to add but just never really found a spot for so I'll have to see.

  6. Riddlekeeper is another definite card I want to add!

  7. I had Szadek, Lord of Secrets in the deck at one point and I even tried using him as the commander, but he never was able to do enough by the time I finally cast him. Maybe things have changed and I'll have to try him again.

  8. I like the idea of Shred Memory but the combo is just in there because the cards are good on their own and I think I'll stick to the Withered Wretch for targeted graveyard removal.

Thanks again for the extensive comment!

@NV_1980 - Increasing Confusion was in the deck at one point as well as Paranoid Delusions but neither did as much work as I thought they would and they both only target a single player which does not work great in a 6-player game. As for Keening Stone, it is already in the deck and Sword of Body and Mind is definitely a card I want! Thanks!

@scaredcrow4 - Adding Shizo, Death's Storehouse sounds like a great idea!

@jon_hill987 - Thanks for the positive comment and upvote!

@metalheadforlife25 & Fujjji - Thanks for the upvote!

Thanks everyone for everything!

the second wave of eldrazi when they did ingest there were also ones which pulled from exile. could work well with something like Wrexial, the Risen Deep if that was your plan.

Hiya,This deck looks sweet! I have some cards that you maybe can add too:

  1. Withered Wretch (targeted removal against graveyards shenanigans)
  2. Fatespinner (pretty good protection, nobody wants to sacrifice main phases or carddraw)
  3. Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void or Planar Void (Instakill)
  4. Wrexial, the Risen Deep
  5. Nemesis of Reason
  6. Riddlekeeper
  7. Szadek, Lord of Secrets
  8. Shred Memory (exiles stuff from graveyards AND can tutor up important combopieces (e.g. both pieces of the duskmantle combo)

I added the black only after reading over Wrexial, the Risen Deep. He just seemed to click in. After finding him, I decided to look at the biggest, baddest creature, creature I own. Marit Lage. I thought that he would go good with these other big monsters. I also needed something to help remove the counters, thus, I needed Vampire Hexmage

The deck you are describing sounds exactly like what I used to run so I'm just going to post my favorite cards from it here. Memory Plunder, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Diluvian Primordial, Sepulchral Primordial, Silent-Blade Oni, Mindleech Mass, Thada Adel, AcquisitorNightveil Specter, Knowledge Exploitation, Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, and as said earlier Geth, Lord of the Vault. Green doesn't really have much in the thieving department but it does have ramp and non-creature removal which are both very important in commander.

Triton on Wrexial Voltron - Suggestions Appreciated

2 months ago

I've been working on a list for Wrexial, the Risen Deep recently, and decided to focus more on voltron rather than mill.

I'm going to start working on the description today, so it's not just a random idea, but here's some of my thinking with this deck:

  • I decided against single-opponent mill spells, since EDH is usually a multiplayer game. That's why Traumatize and Mind Grind are not in the 99.

  • I also added in wheel effects and some discard, and I think maybe emphasizing on the discard subtheme would help out. I don't know if cards like Duress would be good in this specific mindset, as you would be able to make opponents discard a powerful instant/sorcery spell for your use.

Any suggestions for making the deck run smoothly, and on a budget, would also work, also upvotes are much appreciated if you like the deck!
