Bezter Archmage

Hi, I'm Bezter (Previously Lord.of.Innistrad)!

I am a relatively new player, and I like Mardu and Selesnya color combos the most. For some reason I have almost never played blue. I prefer aggro/affinity over control. I am a budget player, and I try to save money where I can. :)

I've been playing since mid 2016, and my first starter deck was the Oath of the Gatewatch deck Concerted Effort, with Gladehart Cavalry.

Since then I've moved on to Commander/EDH. Commander is by far my favorite format(along with pre-release). Once I got into it, I haven't spend a dime on any modern or standard decks. I have a playgroup (some of whom are on TappedOut!) and we all play 6, 7, even 8 player commander games. So much fun!

Mardu being my favorite 3 color combination, I have a budget Zurgo Helmsmasher deck, "Helmsmasher? I barely know her!", that I've been working on for a while. Proud to say it's the #1 Zurgo EDH deck on TappedOut!

After Zurgo, I tried out Kaalia of the Vast. I love Kaalia, and I made another budget-y deck, Frankly, my dear, I don't give a demon..

Most recently, I've put together a / mill EDH deck, with Oona, Queen of the Fae. I'll be uploading it soon once I've nailed the build. It's all about combos and milling people out. As I mentioned above, I don't really like control, but I see mill as different from control. This is the first deck with blue in it I've spent money on!

Feel free to check out my decks and leave a suggestion or an upvote :-) Also check out my binder, there isn't much there but I'm always down for a good trade!

Thanks!

Haha thanks, DrkNinja! I'll take it. Upvotes for the name are just as good as upvotes for the deck, in my opinion. Lol.

Greater Auramancy is perfect for keeping your enchantments protected. Copy Enchantment could also be a nice fit, as there are many good candidates to copy.

Any reason why you have no artifacts? Chromatic Lantern can greatly help with mana fixing.

The Vows do a good job of protecting you from your own commander, but you could possibly also use an Assault Suit. Same kind of deal, but it prevents Karona from being sacrificed to your opponents things such as Brion Stoutarm, Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, etc.

Hope these suggestions help!

NCN946 I have considered picking up a Phenax. A little high on the budget for this deck. Nighthowler looks great.

Thanks for the suggestions!

-2 - Target creature gains all creature types until end of turn. You may create a token that is a copy of that creature.

-6 - Choose a creature type. Search your library for any number of creature cards with the chosen type, reveal them, and put them into your hand.

I like the idea of "no Ultimate"

Quicksilver Amulet is on my want list. The price tag is a little steep so I've been trying to trade for one. Might get around to picking one up soon.

Whispersilk Cloak and Rogue's Passage are great, I'll put them in. The copies I have are in my Zurgo deck right now.

I agree there are better board wipes than Torment of Hailfire, but I think it's super fun, especially in multiplayer.

Thanks for the comment!

Nice budget deck!

I think Celestial Mantle could be great here. Eldrazi Conscription is a little high on the budget, but it could be a good finisher.

Daybreak Coronet. Easy to enable, low CMC, lots of upsides. Vigilance is very helpful. Along with the +3/+3 (Which is really +5/+5 with Uril's ability), first strike, AND lifelink, I think this card is a great include.

Some more budget suggestions I have include:

Vow of Duty. Again, vigilance is good because you'll have a massive attacker and blocker should you need him. Additionally, you don't want your opponents stealing your big Uril with Mob Rule or Insurrection or something. Keeping you protected from your own guy can be important.

Possibly Flickerform to help save Uril from board wipes. You don't want to get 2-for-1 or 10-for-1ed with a simple Wrath of God.

An equipment, but Assault Suit can be good too. Sacrifice is one of the only ways to kill Uril since he has built-in hexproof. Giving Uril an Assault Suit can prevent him from being sacrificed by many things, including Celestial Flare, Wing Shards, Crackling Doom, and many others.

Hope these suggestions help! I like the low budget! Feel free to check out my budget Zurgo EDH deck: "Helmsmasher? I barely know her!"

Liliana's Caress could be good, get the most value from the discards. Shrieking Affliction is a bit hard to get off but possibly worth it.

Strionic Resonator would definitely be worth it. Copy the discard trigger from Nath, make someone discard two cards or have two people discard a card. You get 2 Elf tokens either way!

If you play Mind Control or Control Magic on a creature, then Ghostly Flicker it, the enchantment falls off, but Ghostly Flicker says return it to the battlefield under your control.

Would this grant permanent control of the creature you had enchanted(despite the enchantment being destroyed)?

Thanks!

Do cards like Turn to Frog or Polymorphist's Jest, when played on a legendary creature such as Nekusar, the Mindrazer, negate the Legendary Creature super-type?

Or would the card then read "Legendary Creature - Frog"?

Asking for cards like Djinn of Infinite Deceits.

Thanks!
