Zealous Conscripts Discussion

Neotrup on Argentum Armor Owned by me ...

2 days ago

As long as an opponent doesn't somehow gain control of the Argentum Armor (such as with a Zealous Conscripts) you will get to choose the target of the triggered ability if they attack with Karona, False God. Note that you can only equip the Argentum Armor to a creature you control, which as it's limited to sorcery speed anyways you should control Karona, False God any time you would be able to activate the equip ability anyways, but your question was phrased a bit like you'd be equipping while you didn't control it.

Raphiezar on Ramos ETB

5 days ago

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

Pheardemons on Missing You...*Current*

Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and Staff of Domination because you want to be able to use the commander's ability as much as possible. Also, those are going to be huge targets once people realize what is happening. You'll want as much redundancy as possible.

For extra ramp, you could play Extraplanar Lens. To be a cuckhold and not give the benefit to anyone else you could play Snow covered mountains instead of regular ones.

Also, I think you could play some different big red stuff. Avatar of Slaughter could be hugely beneficial for you. Since you have to sacrifice him, you are the only one that gets the double strike benefit. Excruciator just to bypass any Fogs in your meta. Utvara Hellkite seems extremely beneficial because it will give you a dragon just for attacking. Plus, you already play multiple dragons. Spitebellows just seems funny here. It will always deal 6 damage to something! Furyborn Hellkite I feel like you could use if you made the deck a little different. Anything to deal one damage, to get a 12/12 flying for three mana. Hellkite Igniter seems good here, since you play an artifact subtheme. Hellkite Charger for the win. Scourge of the Throne for the same reason as Hellkite Igniter. Ryusei, the Falling Star for board wipes. Thundermaw Hellkite to tap all flying creatures so your attacks can get through. Akroma, Angel of Fury because she can just be a powerhouse. Combustible Gearhulk actually seems like a win-win for your deck. Neheb, the Eternal seems like he could benefit you with extra mana mainphase two. Conquering Manticore and Zealous Conscripts for similar reasons. Dragon Mage if you need a new hand. Combat Celebrant seems good here. Goblin Dark-Dwellers could be a possibility. Heartless Hidetsugu, dude yes!

I mainly searched for power, so I'm sure there are other creatures to look up with good ETB effects. After doing that search for you I realized that I like Feldon as a commander. Hope you don't mind if I make him based on your deck XD.

firecast92 on Wort, the combo mother

Cathartic Reunion is an allstar in my deck, and dude where is your Tooth and Nail, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Zealous Conscripts and Craterhoof Behemoth i thought this was combo, nice decklist

Funkydiscogod on False Banishment

Here's a random amusing idea: Zealous Conscripts. Take control of their creatures in the middle of combat, and make them block eachother. Or, better yet: if you have any blinker on an Isochron Scepter with two Panharmonicon, and a land that taps for 2, you can take control of every permanent on the battlefield.

Anyway...Renegade Rallier could be worth considering.

Spirits on Kaalia's Flying Circus

Hi Venom_Pistachio, thanks for the comments on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Here are some potential cuts:

Grim Discovery | Return to the battlefield is better, skips the Kaalia of the Vast requirement

Ruthless Ripper | He's too small, and not going to do much for you

Skyblinder Staff | Not necessary

Vessel of Endless Rest | Planning to infinite combo this?

Congregate | Rarely going to be too valuable / too situational

Boros Guildmage | Use a Dragon Tempest or something, creatures too easy to remove, and mana sponges

One or a couple of these should get you Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in there.

Some other suggestions:

Angel of Despair destroys a permanent for about $3, good with Panharmonicon as well.

Swiftfoot Boots better way to get haste (and hexproof) for equip 1, better than Boros Guildmage

Anguished Unmaking is a great permanent exile, think Purphoros, God of the Forge or along that lines

Bloodgift Demon gives you an extra draw each turn for under $1

Zealous Conscripts can go infinite with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (same as Restoration Angel), for about 50 cents

Hope that helps!

Rishkar's Expertise is really good in this kind of deck. lots of draw and play something for free. i would say you need more mana rocks, dorks, or lands. i would also take out Zealous Conscripts cause there are better things to run. also why do you have barely any black. a deck aint T H I C C if it dont got blac

StolenVHS on Jhoira's Doomsday Clock

Enter the Infinite with enough fast mana and counterspells in your deck just wins. Draw the deck, get Laboratory Maniac in hand, cast him, Frantic Search or Gitaxian Probe or whatever draw spell you can cast to win off Lab Man. Misdirection is a pretty fun pseudo-Force of Will for cheap. Zealous Conscripts goes great with Kiki, and it also can be just fun to late game steal a fatty and swing out. Keep in mind, you can steal anything with Zealous, and that shit is super relevant. As Foretold is a fun flavor addition. Quicksilver Amulet and Sneak Attack are awesome for getting critters out even faster. Glacial Chasm and other pillow fort cards can be decent for when the whole table is staring at your wincon inching closer and closer to resolving, hahaha. I can't think of anything else off the top of my head, but when I do I'll let ya know.
