Daedalus19876 Deckspert

Hello and welcome to my userpage! :)

I am an old hand at Magic (playing for about fifteen years, about 3/4 of my life), but I just joined this site a few years ago.

Formats of choice: I played in Standard for a long time, but I got sick of not having the money to play the best decks (cough Jace, the Mind Sculptor cough) and having to continuously buy new cards as old ones rotated out, and quit playing competitively for a while. I found EDH about three years ago, and I have been hooked ever since.

Play style: I am a Johnny, fond of complex and clever decks, and quite averse to counter-magic on principle. Favorite colors: black, green, white, and purple (Izzet).

Favorite set(s): Time Spiral Block, Original Mirrodin, Original Ravnica, Original Innistrad

Least favorite set: Urza's Block, Return to Ravnica, Kamigawa Block, all core sets that start with "M"

Personal information: I am a university student living in St. Louis. I've been playing MtG for about three quarters of my life, and never regretted it, haha!

If you have any kind of deck you want me to look over, message me or post it on my wall! I have lots of time, and I like analyzing and deconstructing decks, EDH in particular :)

Good luck once again! Whenever you're free I could really use a pair of eyes on that Alara build. :3

Hello Daedalus!So, I've been looking at what decks you make, and allow me to say that I am very impressed! I'm not as much of one for EDH, I'd rather play modern and be creative with it rather than competitive. I've only been playing Magic for a month now, online, and I was wondering if, seeing as you described yourself as a fellow Johnny, would assist me in the creation of a deck of my dreams, a creative, weird, janky, and MASSIVELY dangerous Eldrazi-based deck. If this request is simply too consuming of your time, I understand. However, if you would like to help me, I do, in fact, have a place to start. You know all those weird Eldrazi that have devoid because their cost includes a color? I have been awed by these strange cards, but could never figure out how to make something with them work. Your help would be greatly appreciated.If you'd please, reply on my page, if able, or if you replying on this page sends me a notification, that's fine too.Thank you,

XanderMarron

Your creative descriptions have no bounds. I love everything you make.

Your sideboard seems a little odd, though. As much as I like transforming sideboards, is a 1-of Anguished Unmaking likely enough to show up in your hand to make a difference? Etc.

Mostly looking for +1s at this point - still trying to beat PartyJ's Sisay list, heh!

What are your thoughts on Protean Hulk here? You could add a fetchable combo of some kind to close off the game if your big beaters aren't going through for whatever reason.

Generally I prefer Tidings over Jace's Ingenuity. But here, Blue Sun's Zenith might be better than either of them.

You really, really, really need Seedborn Muse and possibly Awakening here.

Your removal seems light. Beast Within is always amazing.

I know that's shorter than my normal comments, but I hope it's helpful!

The website seems to have decided that many cards originating from Commander products (Thought Vessel, Song of the Dryads, etc) are illegal in commander. Also, Recruiter of the Guard and Mana Crypt.

Just thought I might as well mention it to you.

May 23, 2017 6:48 p.m.

Spoosky: I'm not running it because I have too many combos already, heh. Walking Ballista is a dead card outside the combo (and doesn't work with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed unless you have a free sac outlet).

Said on Red Scare: Zada ......

#7

TheatreJay: Because I can cast Indomitable Creativity on Zada, causing all of my tokens to spit out artifacts and creatures from my deck haha.

I did have Release the Gremlins in here for a while but that XX cost was just too vicious.

I'm so happy you like the list! Haha :)

Good god that is beautiful.

Casey4321: To be clear, Lilbrudder's list is 10,000% better than mine, but I do find mine more fun and whimsical (and still totally capable of winning).

Do you want it? It's for auction in a group I'm in.

May 22, 2017 9:04 p.m.

I know this was possible in the past, but I think there was a recent rules update that I missed.

(I know I can't cast the Aftermath half with Sunforger obviously.)

May 22, 2017 3:40 p.m.

Spoosky: I actually tried Insult / Injury here recently and it just...didn't work well :( I prefer Overblaze, which is a surprise and can be tutored with Sunforger...

May 22, 2017 3:36 p.m.

Well I'm glad to hear you're all alive. I've been less involved with Magic lately just because I have a lot going on, but hopefully Hour of Devastation will get me back into the game.

Here's a freaky idea for a jank combo in EDH: Clone copying Linessa, Zephyr Mage, and using Tamiyo, the Moon Sage's ult to discard the original Linessa an infinite number of times, bouncing everything your opponents control. Then win with Storm Crow damage.

May 21, 2017 6:46 p.m.

Neotrup: Would the case change if Yixlid Jailer was in play? I don't think it would?

May 21, 2017 4:55 p.m.

I just wanted to check a rule.

If I sacrifice a Tarmogoyf to my Dracoplasm, will the Dracoplasm's power and toughness change as my graveyard fills?

I know that the similarly-worded Sutured Ghoul DOES change, but it seems to remain linked to the card in exile, which would allow this to occur.

Casey4321: In the hospital? What happened??

And I've been having Writer's Block when it comes to decks recently, which is why I haven't been super present.

May 21, 2017 2:03 p.m.

This page seems dead and this saddens me. Is it just me, or is T/O very quiet these last few weeks?

May 21, 2017 1:49 p.m.

guard5: Ah. Well Stax can mean any one of several things, but it's always tied to resource limiting or denial. So Smokestack, Mind Slash, Sadistic Hypnotist, etc could be considered Stax pieces. I think they elevate the deck to a high degree, but it depends what your playgroup considered to be "fun" and "fair" :) Let me know what I can do to help!

May 19, 2017 12:50 a.m.

LeonGraves123: I'm glad you like the deck! :) Of the cards you highlighted, Cauldron of Souls and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed definitely could find slots. Cryptolith Rite is also something that might work, though the mana curve is low-ish in the deck and it's better to avoid tapping your snakes. I usually don't like Concordant Crossroads much, because it gives your opponents so much advantage... I'm not sure. But the issue really is that the slots are tight. If you wanted to reduce the stax aspect of the deck you could remove some of them for these additions...or maybe Dusk Urchins? If you like the deck, upvotes are always appreciated :)

gdm1989: I wish I had an extra crypt for this deck :'( And I'll try finding a place for Kamahl, Fist of Krosa! And as I said above, if you like the deck, upvotes are nice ;)

guard5: If you wanted to remove the Stax from the deck, I'd add more combo cards (particularly Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and tutors). Fair warning that any deck that plays with -1 counters is going to be relatively staxy by its nature...

#20

I'm not sure if it counts as "emerge" if you only have four cards with the keyword lol.
