Uyo, Silent Prophet EDH

Commander / EDH

MrQuestionMark Score: 2


Description

Deck has no real win condition of its own (other than maybe swinging with uyo a bunch of times lol) so I mostly rely on taking my opponents stuff for the win (using Bribery , Dominate , Rite of Replication , or my personal favorite Eternal Dominion ). Basically I just take enough extra turns to draw into the cards or tutor I need to find them and proceed to then copy a kicked Rite of Replication 3-4 times on your biggest dude (Primeval Titan is my personal favorite so far). There are artifacts for mana ramp and protecting Uyo. And a few awesome enchantments and creatures. Also Patron of the Moon , Terrain Generator and Walking Atlas to help with the whole bouncing lands thing...

Still needs some work. I am currently filling the maybe board with every single thing I can find that may even possibly be good in the deck. Any ideas on what cards in there would be more useful than cards already in the main list would be appreciated!

Also this deck is just a little pricey to buy in paper with one of the cards weighing in at $200 and another at $50 but on MTGO its only around $75 total (thank God for Masters Editions...). And to get it irl for under $150 just replace Capture of Jingzhou , Temporal Manipulation and Personal Tutor with cheaper options (see maybeboard for ideas).

All ideas and advice are appreciated!

well.. the take additional turns and rite is usually game winning but..

Knowledge ExploitationMTG Card: Knowledge Exploitation will let you search up two cards from your opponents' deck(s) and when you play those you can copy each of those as well so one spell suddenly turned into 6.. Spin into MythMTG Card: Spin into Myth for general tucking, Ancestral VisionMTG Card: Ancestral Vision finishes suspending and is technically 'cast' you get to copy that, Fact or FictionMTG Card: Fact or Fiction really digs out cards you might want so two of them can only be better?

The real power of this general is your spells are almost guaranteed to not be countered because 'In response, copy it' so they might not even be bothered to try to out run your copying ability.

Leyline of Anticipation > War Tax . High Tide would be freaking hilarious to copy; I would suggest removing Propaganda for it. And if creatures are really that much of an issue for you, check out Portcullis .

The irl version of this deck has changed soooooo much from the version that is on here... I do have Leyline of Anticipation and Portcullis in there. High Tide is interesting but the problem is I have to pay mana AND bounce lands to copy things. By the time it would be copied enough to have a substantial effect the majority of my lands would be in my hand. Could be powerful though as a way to combo out earlier and probably still has a home here, but not as a copying target. The irl version of this deck combos out into infinite turns and mana using Uyo, Patron of the Moon and Amulet of Vigor with any one of the mana doublers in the deck and an extra turn spell.

Nice deck, I'm building an Uyo, Silent Prophet EDH myself, and we both use the same theme of "copy for extra turns", however, in my version I run a lot less instances of 'Return all x to their owners hands' and a lot more 'Gain control of target permanent'. You seem to be doing both as well, but you run enough bounce permanent spells that I wonder if it's not counter-intuitive to have so many of these anti-interactions; e.g Bribery + Evacuation , Blatant Thievery + Wash Out ;to where it looks like you're just 'Bribing' creatures from your opponents library to put them back in their hands. I instead ran a lot of mana-locking things like Power Drain and Mana Short . I wonder though, how does your hand play out? I haven't build mine yet, but I just wonder if its not better to run power-counters like Mana Drain and Rewind . Thanks for any advice/conversation. I also had 2 suggestions. One, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . and 2: maybe drop Eternal Dominion . it kinda stinks.
