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 :)

Sygg the extortionist

A experimental deck that let me get card advantage without provoking the opponent it might be interesting to you since you like stax. It's more focus on extorting my opponent's resources

greenjenkins Try linking your deck by using the format 00deck:deckname00 (with square brackets instead of 0s )

It'll turn out like this! Call of Rhonas

Rigol: Heck, only ONE card. Synthetic Destiny (or Mass Polymorph) fetches both halves automatically! Haha.

June 28, 2017 2:03 p.m.

wereotter: The goal of Tandem Lookout is to Synthetic Destiny into him and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind - and win on the spot. Do you think the combo isn't worth including?

June 28, 2017 1:44 p.m.

Alas, this deck has finally died.

But cowards die many times before their time. This deck shall only taste of death but once.

June 28, 2017 2:34 a.m.

jonfehl: Probably not; I don't have enough rituals to actually CAST the things after I pay for Past in Flames...Mizzix's Mastery, on the other hand...

Rzepkanut: I prefer Dack Fayden in the "loot 2 per turn" slot, because his -2 is more relevant I suspect, and he's slightly less mana. However, Daretti, Scrap Savant is a good budget replacement for Jace, the Mind Sculptor (oddly enough). Thanks for the idea! :)

flluid: The most jank of secret tech! ;) I even have one lying around...

tophertbone12: I'm on the fence for Distant Melody. I was going to play it (was in the maindeck), but I cut it for draw that could be used even without already having Locusts in play. I want to find a slot for it, but what would you cut? (And if you like the deck, feel free to +1!)

Wasadia123: Ooh, I like this idea! Thank you! :)

wereotter: How did I forget him??? He needs a slot. What should I cut? ;) - and if you like the list, you're always welcome to +1! haha

TwigTech: Hmmmm. I'll consider it, but Murder of Crows already goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar OR Ashnod's Altar, and goes for a simple Comet Storm...Thoughts?

Msg_magic: Seems too high CMC, unless I'm missing something?

Podder: My feelings are that I SHOULD be running them, but I generally hate counterspells so I don't include them. As this deck becomes more tuned they'll probably become necessary (since it IS a relatively dedicated combo deck and reliant on the commander)...

Crivaro: I like the idea, thanks! :) If you like the deck, +1s are always a kind gift ;)

Thank you all, once again, for your invaluable help! This deck wouldn't be half as good without you all.

June 28, 2017 2:28 a.m.

Enral: Thanks! :) Anything I should improve?

June 28, 2017 2:17 a.m.

WiltLeafElves: Thanks for the comment! (Though it turns out you've +1'd my deck in the past - no worries haha.)

I played Gisela, Blade of Goldnight very briefly, but I just found her to be too slow. With no way to cheat her in, she was dead in my hand a LOT.

And while Blood Moon isn't in the maindeck, it hurts my opponents more than myself. I usually have enough basic Plains to survive, while it often shuts down some of my opponents completely.

Mostly looking for upvotes TBH. But suggestions still appreciated!

I'm on mobile, so I'm going to sound somewhat more curt than I intended. You need:

Better tutors - Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor

Better draw - Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence

Better mass removal - Toxic Deluge

Better lands - Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Expedition Map, Lake of the Dead

More self-reanimating creatures: Bloodghast

Happy deckbuilding!

Have you considered Mind's Eye? Your draw seems a bit weak, but that's inevitable in mono-white...

June 26, 2017 11:11 a.m.

gockley: Thanks for that list, it's super helpful!

Rigol: I know that Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind doesn't work with Bident of Thassa (though I wish he did) - but it does work to double your Locust hordes ;)

Dubel: I haven't included Curiosity because it's too narrow of a card outside of the combo, but Tandem Lookout combos with him too, and Synthetic Destiny will fetch both halves ;)

June 25, 2017 3:11 p.m.

Oh, dear god, this deck needs a Paradox Engine :D

June 25, 2017 2:15 p.m.

On a different note! Anyone want to give my The Locust God deck one more look-over before I start actually trying to acquire the cards? :)

Casey4321: Lordie, that sounds like a fun game haha. I got to murder a whole table with Avacyn (and add five new commanders to her kill list!) on Friday so her bloodlust is sated for the moment ;)

(Though the last game did end unpleasantly, with a guy insisting I couldn't Swords to Plowshares his Blightsteel Colossus because I sarcastically asked "Who's dying?" when he cast him with a Lightning Greaves out, and he took that as tacit acceptance of an equip and move to combat. We never finished the game.)

June 25, 2017 1:53 p.m.

wereotter: Ooh, thanks for highlighting Tolarian Winds! I appreciate it :) and I will try and slot in Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

Rigol: There really does need to be a Jace, the Mind Sculptor here. I just don't have the cash for it right now...Tandem Lookout is a fantastic idea and I definitely need a slot for it. And yes, he does go back to command zone.

iwr09a: No, I agree. This deck isn't meant to be one of my tuned decks, really - it's meant to be kinda silly and janky combo. I do need to stick some disruption in, but I just don't enjoy playing control... Plus, I plan to use this deck in the lower-power circles of my meta (also - it's only 4 days old, I haven't gotten to try it more than once).

(And with regards to your specific card comments, Ivory Tower probably should go, but Propaganda's pretty important since I can't get my Locust swarms until later in the game.)

June 25, 2017 2:03 a.m.

VexenX: When I said the #3, I meant the "Current Top Decks" measure, not the #3 of all time haha.

That being said, you're damn close to that as well ;) if/when I break #5 of all time I'll be content. But for now my pet project is to push all of my currently-played decks to +100 or above haha.

June 24, 2017 6:56 p.m.

VexenX: Oh, that's your list? Haha. One of the very few above my Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip build ;)
