Wolfrage76 on Help changing Wincons for Sen ...

3 weeks ago

Currently I am getting massive rage hate from my local group as the whole Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve infinite turn thing is pretty cheap (all you need is 6 mana to drop the Assembly and an extra turn) and has let me pull of some stupid wins when I was way behind until that point. Problem is, the deck is pretty much setup with mostly wipes and bounces for control but also a lot of "let me get the artifacts I need out" searches and stuff. I'd like to get rid of Time Sieve (and probably some of the other cheap combos), which would let me also get rid of the cards added for that Sword of the Meek, some of the thopter generators, bunch of tutor stuff, etc, to free up room for something else. I really am looking for a new Wincon to shift the deck towards instead of the cheap combos I have. I also don't use my commander much, though Sen Triplets are awesome. Was thinking of switching for Zur the Enchanter or Sharuum the Hegemon as commander instead (unless I can fig out how to swift the deck to a new color combo instead of esper)


They're triplets but I just see the twins

Dezibell first of all thank you for your inputs!

You wouldn't believe how good Unflinching Courage is, mainly in first matches where it gets opponents by surprise! It turns off chump blockers, deals additional damage and most importantly get my life total back up by 5 to 7! That's a big deal against some matchups and had me turning some games online. Steel of the Godhead would indeed garantee the unblockable part for Zur the Enchanter, but he already has evasion and the option to put into other creatures seems better to me. I found myself putting it into Treefolk Harbinger sometimes to get additional value in case Zur gets removed.

As for some of your other ideas:

Athreos, God of Passage was on the deck, I recently removed it since it wasn't being as effective as I'd hoped. Most of the time the wipe effect just kill my main pieces and let little guys back to my hand. I added Gaddock Teeg to the sideboard to protect myself against effects like theese and some others, and also more Brain Maggots on the sideboard.

Ghostly Prison and Nevermore are already on the sideboard lol being so good.Ashes of the Abhorrent seems undervalued when I already have Rest in Peace on the sideboard.

Bow of Nylea and Threads of Disloyalty are cards I do consider fitting in but I wouldn't know what to take out for them since my sideboard is already carefully selected for my current meta.

Do you play on Xmage? If so we could maybe play some time!

More Suggestions continued:

  1. Cut Contagion Engine for Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and the Oracle of Mul Daya for Zur the Enchanter
  2. Cut Privileged Position for Greater Auramancy
  3. Maelstrom Nexxus is a "shits & giggles" card, so chuck it out for Exploration; you can add it back in when you cut your land count down (you've got roughly 6-8 more than you need)
  4. Cut Grand Coliseum for Tarnished Citadel
  5. Find a place for Maze of Ith, Cabal Coffers, Thawing Glaciers, Amulet of Vigor, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, Commander's Sphere, and Thespian's Stage
  6. If you can fit in Dark Depths after all that, that's awesome

When I say unique I mean things off the beaten path, things that use a commander in a way most people wouldn't expect. I have several control players in my meta, and would like to either (A) give them a taste of their own medicine. For example, I am currently considering the cruelest of control decks, Zur the Enchanter with Counterbalance, or (B) design a deck that can fight through counterspells. I like combo and prison-style decks.

You should add more enchantments to take advantage of Zur the Enchanter and maybe Starfield of Nyx to capitalize on that

  • Indeed I would have to change the name of the deck if I swapped out the commander. Another reason to leave Isamaru, Hound of Konda in charge. Plus, he is such a good boy. Yes he is!

@DoctorScarf

  • Thanks for the compliment! I have thought about some cards with Exalted, but they never seem to make the cut. Cathedral of War would be included if it did not enter the battlefield tapped. I had not considered Angelic Benediction but it has a similar function to Citadel Siege. I rarely choose "Dragons" except in special cases such as when I face Zur the Enchanter or similar.

@DarkSepho

  • Thanks for the approval. This deck does well against stax decks, in my opinion. We run some stax cards of our own so we are generally prepared for similar style cards. Also, having a cheap Commander without special abilities allows us navigate common stax elements.

You can start him off with Zur the Enchanter as a option. Most of the enchantments and cards are not only powerful but a good budget
