Daedalus19876 Janklord Supreme

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 :)

Overall, I very much like where this deck has gone :) Do you mind if I link this deck under the budget section of my primer?

October 18, 2017 2:30 p.m.

jakethewhale007: Those sound like great changes! I'd definitely keep the Coldsteel Heart and the Dowsing Dagger  Flip, though :) Have fun purifying your opponents' sins!! Glad to help cleanse another playgroup ;)

I'm in class at the moment, but I'll check over your list more closely in a few hours :)

Allomyr: It was in older drafts. I'm trying to find a slot to add it back in but having trouble...

October 18, 2017 11:33 a.m.

rkjunior: Probably too slow, I'm afraid (most things over 4 mana are). He's more suited towards a long-game control deck where he can accrue passive value over time.

October 18, 2017 11:31 a.m.

jakethewhale007: Keep me in the loop! :) I love this deck, and I hope it treats you as well as it has treated me.

October 17, 2017 3:25 p.m.

jakethewhale007: Thank you for your interest in the deck! :)

The MLD package is definitely helpful, although I feel I owe you a warning that it WILL draw a lot of hate from most playgroups.

Of your changes, I'd probably run Armageddon or Alms Collector over Chandra Ablaze: she's somewhat disappointing out of red spellslinger IMO. I'd also consider running Coldsteel Heart over Star Compass (since it lets you mana fix), and Dowsing Dagger  Flip as an additional source of ramp/power. I'd also use Lightning Greaves over Mask of Avacyn - I'm aware of the downsides of shroud, but I suspect the free equip is good enough in your variant of the list to overcome that. The rest of the changes seem very reasonable :)

Given that the loss of fast ramp will slow down the temp somewhat, you could run some more late-game midrange effects like Repercussion and Cloudshift?

I hope that helps :)

WalkingIllusion: Ooh, that's tempting. I could try that, and it would let me get more value from Paradox Engine...on the other hand, if I try to use it during my combo, it lets them bounce The Locust God...

Iquasi: Tagging people is done with double brackets around their name :) I'll definitely consider the Ponder and/or Preordain, yeah. Other than that, I think I am going to keep Brainstorm in the deck. And I too am running the Kindred Discovery combo, but I decided to terminate it with Snapback since I don't need to keep open 3 mana for the Flash cost.

Tosk: I don't think it would be helpful, to be honest. I have very few planeswalkers, the card doesn't help my combo at all, and 4 mana is pretty steep. Thanks for the comment though! :)

I did, once upon a time, but it was before I joined this site. I've never had a Toshiro Umezawa list on here, at least.

October 12, 2017 2:35 a.m.

WalkingIllusion: I'm already running most of those combos, if you look in the "Win Conditions" section of the deck description :) I'm running Murder of Crows already, but I prefer to use Altar of Dementia/Phyrexian Altar in place of Blasting Station. Not to mention Skullclamp+ Altar, or Kindred Discovery haha.

Thanks for your comment! You're welcome to upvote the deck if you think it's solid ;)

Question - is there any way to remove the Casual/Competitive meter from a deck?

October 11, 2017 3:26 p.m.

Taking a look now :)

This is my current pet deck, and my competitive RL build. Any opionions or upvotes are deeply appreciated!

A few quick things :)

First, I hate to tell you this, but Composite Golem isn't legal in a UG deck. It has a color identity of 5-color, because it has all mana symbols in its text :( You can get the same effect with Ashnod's Altar + Symbiotic Elf, though!

Cost reduction works extremely well with morph, by the way. Dream Chisel and Semblance Anvil can make it cheaper to spit out a bunch of creatures. Muraganda Petroglyphs also pumps your face-down creatures.

I hope that helps a bit ;)

Venom_Pistachio: The only spell that REALLY needs to resolve in this deck is The Locust God, and he has to resolve as quickly as possible (hopefully with counterspell backup). Spell Swindle might work well in this deck depending on what you're playing against :)

Personally, I think that Impact Tremors is the best replacement for Purphoros, God of the Forge in this deck ;) But to each their own.

The issue I have with Wheel of Fate is that it allows your opponents time to empty their hand before the wheel happens. One of the strongest things about Wheel of Fortune and friends is that you get to choose the timing, so you can disrupt your opponents if you time it right.

October 11, 2017 11:55 a.m.

Venom_Pistachio: Thanks, haha! I do need to update the section about building on a budget, though...

Combo decks in general have a bit of trouble against control, but Defense Grid and your own counterspells help a lot against it :)

Laboratory Maniac can be super risky, yeah. It's worth mentioning that it's a replacement effect, though, so Stifle can't stop Lab Man's effect. However, in this deck, I generally end up with my whole deck in hand if I am going to win with him, which gives access to a lot of free mana and at least two free counterspells (Force of Will and Pact of Negation). Plus, if an opponent aims a kill spell at him, you can respond by casting Brainstorm to win.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor is super handy in the deck, mostly for consistent Brainstorms, but he's not vital. He's good in my meta, because there aren't many creatures, but if you are in a meta with a lot of early creatures he might not be the best choice for you.

I hope that's helpful :)

If you want to see what I made for Yahenni :)

October 10, 2017 12:44 p.m.

Venom_Pistachio: Glad to help! You're welcome to +1 if you like it of course ;) Is there anything I can add to make the deck or description better? :)

rkjunior: Seems reasonable. The card got a lot less good once I stopped running the infinite combo with Breath of Fury.

October 10, 2017 1:15 a.m.

I'll answer comments in more detail tomorrow, but I've updated the "Combos" part of the description to reflect the current build :)

October 7, 2017 2:24 a.m.

Iquasi: I'm glad you like the deck! If you find it inspiring or helpful, you're welcome to give a +1 ;)

In answer to your questions :) As a general rule, I don't value top-deck manipulation very highly in this deck, since I generally just...draw through that buffer very quickly.

I probably should be running Ponder and Preordain (as well as Chart A Course), if only to search for lands in the early game. However, they don't draw enough cards to be "good" when I'm in the process of comboing off. The same applies more-so to Sensei's Divining Top: I'd probably run it if I had extra slots, but as-is it detracts from the density of card draw effects that I need to make the deck tick.

If you were building the list as more of a long-game control deck with a combo finish, these effects might be more fitting.

Does that answer your question? :)
