Zada, Hedron Grinder Discussion

Hey Alvatariano. Wow it's been a while since I've seen a 60 card deck haha. I'm assuming the list is cards you already own, in which case it looks like a decent start. You have a lot going on here though and I think the deck would flow better if you focus on one particular strategy.

For example, you could do a dedicated aura strategy: Thran Golem, Brilliant Halo, Tragic Poet, Dawn Evangel, Tethmos High Priest, Squee's Embrace, Mesa Enchantress, Chained to the Rocks, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Hero of Iroas, Akroan Crusader, Phalanx Leader.

Or spellslinger style: Blaze Commando, Rile, Feather, the Redeemed, Reckless Rage, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Launch the Fleet, Guttersnipe, Twinflame, Ephemeral Shields, Fists of Flame, Charmbreaker Devils.

I buy single cards on since they're usually cheapest there. I've found you get more bang for your buck when buying singles rather than booster packs (even though packs are fun to open haha). For example you could get all of the cards mentioned above for about $7.

I've seen a lot of decks built around Feather, the Redeemed and I've been playing Boros in EDH for a long time, so hopefully I can give some helpful advice.

The first thing I noticed- you only have 6 ways to ramp in your deck. Feather decks tend to be very mana-hungry, wanting to always have mana to cast your spells and also have enough open to protect Feather. I find for a Feather deck mana-rocks that cost two mana are ideal. They let you cast a mana-rock turn two, play Feather turn three with one mana held up for a protection spell. You already have some signets, which is good. Other good ones are Talisman of Conviction, Marble Diamond, Star Compass, Coldsteel Heart, etc.

Another thing I noticed is that you're playing both Mirrorwing Dragon and Zada, Hedron Grinder but only have one creature that can generate tokens (that being Monastery Mentor) and no way to tutor said creature. If you're going to be running those bigger creatures that multiply your effects across all your creatures, you're going to want to run more token makers. Some decent ones include Young Pyromancer, Akroan Crusader, and Vanguard of Brimaz.

Finally, I advise upping your land count to 38. Like I said, Feather is a mana-hungry deck, so you want to consistently make your land drop every turn of the game. Having 38 lands as opposed to 36 helps with that.

Also though, how has Underworld Breach been performing in your deck? At first glance it doesn't look like the best card for a Feather deck since you're not exactly filling up your graveyard, but I can definitely be wrong.

I would drop 2 Season of Growth and add 2 Song of Freyalise it could help you get Zada, Hedron Grinder and Mirrorwing Dragon out faster, the problem I’ve had and see with season of growth is you draw out too fast. I would also drop Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin entirely and replace him with Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip

Add Zada, Hedron Grinder! He's an ally you can grab, but then, if you have an army of ally's out, any of your copy spells could target him. You'd have to sac him or the copy of him because of the legendary rule, but all your other creatures would be copied!

I want to make a Tazri deck with Zada as the hidden commander, just to have all 5 colors of target spells :D.

Awesome deck! Have you considered Charmbreaker Devils for punching and reccursion? Zada, Hedron Grinder, Monastery Mentor, and Scroll of the Masters might be maybeboard worthy as well. Keep it up!

(cEDH) #PartnersInCrimeDeclareMultiversalWar

Commander / EDH* BMHKain



It's been decided: Akiri, & Bruse Tarl Collab one last time in the true last attempt at cEDH Boros.

Obviously, suggestions are welcome, & while both have some degree of Stax/Prison in them as an idea, I also wanted a secondary theme in mind. But the following card types ruin these decks:

Torpor Orb Effects

Rest in Peace Effects

Not having asymmetrical effects.

(I could make a whole list in this case, but I have to commit to something...)

One Decklist has Mirrorwing Dragon, Zada, Hedron Grinder, & Feather, the Redeemed all at the same time. Are any truly needed? Well, we can say the Dragon is dead, so that leaves us w/ Zada & Feather. (sigh...) I'd rather put Feather, the Redeemed in the 99 in that case, or I could also keep Zada as well.

But IF I did, I'd have to center the deck on both. So, nope. Not adding either (Too Late; A Goblin Ally, & an Angel already snuck in...).

But if we're going for Tier 3: High Power; which is still a hopeless case for so many running , but what is required for this feat w/ the worst colors? & no, Ol' Feather doesn't count. That said, I'll have to lower my Expectations for now. But what stratagems to use? We've Stax, but what about a secondary decktype? Value Engine? That's what I'm thinking of right now, though I'd rather suggestions than opposition of as a result. If this deck can't truly be made well in such fashion (Tier 3 has some great non-Boros CMDRs in their colors so, who knows?), I'm putting my money where my mouth is, & give up the whole campaign of cEDH Boros for good, but only if we did a good enough effort to warrant this possibility. Though I still will plot to make a Haktos the Unscarred Exalted Deck even if this is successful. As of now, I need 91 DAMN cuts. Any ideas for those 91 cuts?

All right. I said enough. I just hope one wants to help as THE GAUNTLET IS THROWN.

good luck...

triproberts12 on Kess Budget Storm

My honest advice is to either make your Kess deck either value/control, or build a $100 storm list under Zada, Hedron Grinder, which can be made very powerful for not a lot of money. My first EDH deck was Kess Dragonstorm, and any kind of tuning inevitably pointed towards smoothing out draws until every game became draw/tutor, cast rituals, storm off, win or die immediately after being punished by removal. My point is that if you are new to the format, remember that the goal isn't to make your deck run the exact same every time, so going for a narrow strategy like storm isn't going to be fun unless you have 5 other decks to play, so your playgroup isn't seeing exactly the same song and dance every night.
