DiverDown on My Right Arm is a Lot Stronger Than My Left One

Don't forget Kiki gives the token copies haste. Meaning he can produce infinite copies of Bell-Ringer, give those tokens haste, and swing right away for infinite damage for a much cheaper cost than Zealous Conscripts . On top of that it's recurrable with Sun Titan and both Kiki and Bell-Ringer are tutorable with Imperial Recruiter . You really only want to use Zealous Conscripts if you're in mono-red though. I would recommend cutting it because it's more mana intensive than it needs to be. If you can afford a Recruiter, that might be a better replacement. Although I don't want you to have to go all-in on this strategy and dilute the deck away from what it already aims to do. Just something to think about though and I hope this helps!

JaceFromStateFarm on Get Over Here So I Can Kill You

Cool! That sounds really effective. In my meta I usually have to deal with a lot of combo decks that don't always rely on creatures or go off in one turn before I can untap, so I was wondering if you had similar issues, but it looks like you've tuned really well for your meta. For another on-theme card, Insurrection is basically a giant version of Mob Rule. Also, if you're looking for a couple more ways to cheese out wins, Hatred can just kill two people with your deck (one with combat and one with a Fling effect). I believe it's on the reserved list, so grab it while you can if you're interested. Additionally, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker seems like it'd be really good in your list. Not only does it give you token copies of other peoples' stuff when you steal them, reuse ETB effects, and give you tokens to sacrifice in a pinch, it also incidentally goes infinite with Zealous Conscripts , making infinite 3/3s with haste (each time you get a token Conscripts, target Kiki-Jiki with its ETB effect, which will untap Kiki-Jiki and let you tap it again to make another copy of Conscripts, rinse and repeat. Even if you're not interested in the combo though, I feel it'd be a powerful addition to your deck.

TheBoraxKid on Directionless with Tyma/Thrasios

2 weeks ago

As titled, I'm looking for what direction to take a Tymna/Thrasios deck. I'm very interested in these commanders as I have never worked with the Partner mechanic and I find the color combination to be desirable.

Unfortunately, cursory searches resulted in very competitive 1v1 Commander lists. This is very different than how my group plays.

Our newly burgeoning playgroup tends to play fairly casually with some competitive combos thrown in as outs to long games or as explosive finishers that beg an answer. If two cards happen to work well in a vacuum as well as with other cards, then all is fair. An example being Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts . Both cards are great as stand alone cards yet can combo off for a quick win if unanswered.

As a fairly seasoned deckbuilder, I find myself in an odd place... I just don't know where to begin with Tymna the Weaver / Thrasios, Triton Hero as partnered Commanders. Both of their abilities beg different strategies, yet I seek to find a strategy that plays on both their strengths well or at very least a strategy focused on one Commander where the second supports the first.

If there is anyone with some fun ideas, some experience, or has some clever mechanic that would be a good focus as a starting point please do feel free to drop a comment!

since you have Zealous Conscripts maybe just throw in Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for infinite creature combo? Hey I really like the deck. Did you just watch the deck tech from the command zone podcast?

SamsWrath on Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - Doomsday

1 month ago

DiverDown, with Grenzo already in play it takes 5 total mana (3 of which must be Black) to cast Doomsday and combo out.

The piles are flexible.

Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask or Overeager Apprentice + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (tap to make a copy of the priest) + Goblin Sledder or Mogg Raider (sac to itself to give Grenzo +1/+1 until the end of turn) + Zealous Conscripts (untap Kiki and make infinite Conscripts)

Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask or Overeager Apprentice + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (tap to make a copy of the priest) + Skirk Prospector + Murderous Redcap (sac Redcap and Kiki to Prospector and with Redcap's Persist trigger on the stack use Grenzo's ability again) + Metallic Mimic (the +1/+1 from Mimic will cancel out -1/-1 from redcap's persist for infinite direct damage when sacrificed to Prospector).

Have you seem what Grenzo can do with Doomsday ? Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts is an excellent infinite that is part of the DD pile but, can also be fired independent of DD. Metallic Mimic + Murderous Redcap + a sac out like Skirk Prospector is another awesome infinite table kill that can be fired with or without DD.

Doomsday is the ultimate tutor for Grenzo. Its synergy with Grenzo's ability allows you to cut straight to your winning combo!

First thing first I hate to be that guy but, your commander would be better off being Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Feldon of the Third Path . Now I kinda hope you ignore that suggestion though.

My best suggestion is Sundial of the Infinite This turns anything temporary into something permanent. Exile at end of turn become "keep forever". Steal until end of turn becomes "Keep Forever". Anything that ruins your turn like cyclonic rift counter it with sundial.

Have fun going through and choosing stuff from the list and worst part of all cuts in your own deck.

Last_Laugh on Animar, Soul of Elements

Nice deck. Very very similar to mine but I don't run Kiki combos. I do have a few suggestions though.

Stratus Dancer and Draining Whelk in place of 2 of your counterspells.

I'd find room for Exploration for another T2 Animar option that's still useful later.

A few more bounce enablers couldn't hurt, consider Equilibrium and/or Tidespout Tyrant.

I'd also replace Pestermite with Zealous Conscripts. Pestermite isn't very good outside of Kiki combos, Conscripts is.

Fierce Empath and Glimpse of Nature are also very good here.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid
