Eiti3 The Living Oxymoron

Standby for some coding is about to ensue... although, I smell pie... Brb...

Hey Eiti3, thanks for taking a look at my new deckpage. It's still a work in progress, but any input is welcome. As for my opinion on America, Land(less) of the Free [Creatureless Too], i'll divide my criticisms into separate parts.

So the first thing I noticed with the page is it's stark white color palette. The combination of the mostly white background, the white snow flakes, and the white letters was a little hard to look at. I'd try changing the background and letters to something less bright, and easy on the eyes.
So on the note of having less white, I figured i'd throw in some suggestions for alternate backgrounds.

Winter Soldier Shield

Winter Soldier Movie Poster

In addition to the background, i'd change the letters to a less bright white to reduce strain on the eyes -

body { 
color:#d5d5d5; 
}

Overall though, it's definitely one of the most unique deck pages i've ever seen on the site. Very cool in it's use of so many different aspects of CSS. Good work!

So, how have you been? You're one of the ones who's still around. So many of the just kinda stopped around the time I got less active. IDK, our whole little community slumped down those months back.

I don't know whether to hate them for how "eh" they look, or love them for their creativity. I mean, even the Masterpieces kept a bit of the black border at the bottom.

But all the Invocations really reminded me of was Show

Well, first things first, love it. One of my friends had a Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer equipment cat-tribal deck. You could imagine his deck title. But one card I loved seeing in his deck was Bludgeon Brawl. What's your take on it?

I see quite a bit of tutoring, and maybe like 4 cards that draw, what's your thoughts on a Sram, Senior Edificer? Kind of a worse Puresteel Paladin but it does trigger off of Gift of Immortality that one time. Can't ever have too much draw as boros.

Lastly, I don't see any recursion other than Gift of Immortality, maybe I'm a bit blind. A Elixir of Immortality might be useful here, especially with how much you can potentially tutor.

Daedalus19876 - Crazy idea, but that's just me, but why not a control Rashmi, Eternities Crafter with Timesifter and a Ugin's Nexus, bouncing the nexus with spells like Karn, Silver Golem + Vanish into Memory for when you want to take extra turns? I would build the deck about stacking the top of your deck while controlling others. I honestly don't know how reliable that is, but it is definitely a new take on her control theme. I would find it hilarious pulling those combos off - hell, even watching them get pulled off.

Also just noticed Jackal is a new creature type. Is it weird that I'm hoping for some sort of tribal?

Tattered Mummy Show

And I personally think Sixth Sense should've been triggered when attacking, rather than damage. That sort of spidey sense to give insight to what is about to come instead of realization after the fact. Feels weird to me.

March 27, 2017 7:35 p.m.

Daedalus19876, I don't know. All I could think about was the broken stuff I am about to do with Paradox Engine + Oracle's Vault. Just do a quick Mana Severance and then play the rest of your deck.

Said on Riku, the Clone ......

Based off of your four main bulletin points there, could I offer a (sub)theme? Guided Passage?

You get a creature, a land, and a noncreature, nonland card. With Riku, that's 2 of each. The most fun political card I've ever played with, and even when your opponent wants to pick the "worst" things, if you focus the deck around this (sub)theme, anything you get will only be good stuff that you're happy about.

On top of this, you could also run a Selective Memory~esque cards if there are some things you want to run like the Birds of Paradise for the early game and then don't want to pull later with Guided Passage.

If you are displeased by this theme then I would say I need know more of a refined theme that you wish to head towards. Good stuff, or tokens, or a mix of the two, or something completely different? There is such a huge array of different cards and themes you currently have that it is hard to cut from saying "I want all of the board presence, draw, and ramp."

Thank you for the quick response! I completely understand where you're coming from and I decided to implement those changes. Although, I used a different picture than what was suggested, as I saw it on the same website and tried all three, liking this one the best. And now I have this website for future reference! Thank you much and can't wait to see how your Moskstraumen deck turns out.

Hey man! With your new Moskstraumen deck it really got me thinking that I should remodel my decks. Literally just finished my first one and would like to hear your opinion. I think it might be a bit cluttered but I've been staring at it for hours so I might be wrong.

Hiya! Doubt you know me but I found you through a mutual friend. I was wondering you could take a look at my deck after I implemented ideas from your own scripts. I think it's a bit too cluttered, but I've been staring at it for hours and would love to hear another opinion.

Thanks for taking a look over! I find that a bit hilarious you made that connection. Although, once you made that connection, my brain tried making the connection between Samurai Jack and the IRS. My mind went through some pretty weird roads with that one...

Anywho, apologies, but I already have Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward in the deck. Open the Vaults benefits my opponents too much, while Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward I can abuse on my turn.

As for Winter Orb, I agree it would be epic to lock down my opponents. Sadly, that isn't what I'm aiming for in this deck. I was trying to make a deck that offered as little taxing as possible outside of Kataki himself. Literally one of the gimmicks I do when I play this deck with my playgroup is apologize each turn for them having to pay their upkeep. Makes the game's air more lighthearted than competitive despite being semi-competitive.

I am currently working my way through rewriting all my deck's descriptions so I apologize again if you misread something in there, or more likely that I failed to implement the right context. Thanks again!

What's this? What's this?
There's colors everywhere
What's this?
There's deck lists in the air

What's this?
I can't believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, me, this isn't fair
What's this?

Apologies if I'm crashing the party but this is one of the coolest ideas I've seen. And after inspecting the description and archive, I'm led to believe that I may not be as skilled a deck creator as I hyped myself to be, or perhaps portrayed an undesirable personality to be included. Either way, found this little gem, here's a for the coolness that this is and I'll be on my way. Happy building.

I really love the idea of that. I will make the attempt in a private theorycraft. If it works, I'll share it with the world.

As for Ovinize + Isochron Scepter, it works well with the theme, but overall, removing the creatures back to hand or back into their libraries would be a more efficient way to remove creatures than deal with it for a single turn, despite reusability. Honestly, if you were to run that, why not go all out crazy and drop a Ink-Treader Nephilim and target it on your opponent's turns so they can't attack or do anything.

Glad to help. I tried making an Azami, Lady of Scrolls EDH deck with Ovinomancer and Metathran Aerostat deck with some Training Grounds and Heartstones. It worked well in theory, but getting the combo either had to be "go-all-for-it" or it would rarely be seen.

Best of luck and tag me when you finish the decklist.

Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff works. If this is a legacy or casual deck, you can easily run multiple of these to keep it consistent. EDH, I recommend some sort of tutoring like Fabricate or Dizzy Spell's transmute ability to keep the jank combo at least somewhat consistent.

buildingadeck glad to know you looked at the deck to know that those cards are already in there. Don't know why you posted them (example maybe?), when I asked for mana rocks I don't already have.

buildingadeck, then I implore of you inform me of better mana rocks under 3CMC for this specific deck.

Greetings and salutations. I'm here to ask your opinions on whether or not the following cards should be inserted into my Landless and Creatureless Narset deck.

Currently I am trying to make the deck more stable/reliable as the deck is currently "all theory" and only works if you shape your hand to a large degree. Of course, nothing I add or remove will ever make the deck 100% stable or reliable until Wizards prints more 0-CMC mana rocks. Until then, I am here with a list of a few 1-3 CMC drops that may benefit the deck until Wizards helps a bro out.

For now, the deck is sitting at 32 mana rocks, 4 instant/sorcery burst mana, and an Omniscience under the 'Mana' category. I want to bring that 32/36 (excluding Omniscience) up to a solid 40. I feel like 40% of the deck being mana producers would help stabilize it until new cards are printed.

Group 1 doesn't help well with ramp really, however it gives the deck a bit of draw. I would like to similarize these to my 3-drops where the few amount of 3-drop mana rocks they either produce 2 mana on a single turn or draw a card. I like the idea of being able to draw cards when the Narset engine isn't enough. However, I don't know if that is enough to warrent running them and cutting other valuable cards.

Group 2 are the Diamonds, or how I refer to them as "ETB Tapped". I sincerely dislike rocks like this because I can't use their abilities right away, which may be needed to drop another rock or two before the turn ends, but it instead sits there... I also dislike them for when Narset plops them down and I can't use them immediately for cards like Mirari or simply any cards in my hand. Tell me if I'm ignorant and wrong, but I will need examples for my Tunnel Vision brain.

So... OPINIONS! I would appreciate anything blatant and honest, but I would absolutely love examples. My brain is a bit stubborn and is unable to see other perspectives unless shown. Additionally, if you have any other 0-2 CMC rocks, spells, etc (not lands or creatures -boo, bad) that help the deck be more stable and reliable in Turns 1-4, I would be willing to do pretty much anything. My only gripe is nothing 3CMC or above. (Unless they cost less for some reason like Affinity.)

Thanks, Eiti3

First thought is build a group hug deck until your playgroup joins your level of competitiveness or until you relearn the joys of just derping around (not accusing you of losing that). Group Hug easily allows your opponents to feel what a competitive deck would be like with their OWN decks, essentially looking at what cards they would want to take out and put in better cards (the cards that sit in their hand the whole game when you force feed them 3 draw per turn).

This would also give you your fix on competitiveness as you are force feeding your opponents a win, but may still have the option to make a comeback in the end. And lastly, relearning the joy of derping around and seeing what crazy stuff can just be done in EDH is something many players need to do from time to time otherwise can suffer from burning out. Once that happens, you may be inclined to build some casual decks that have once in a blue moon combos that are hilarious when you stumble upon them.
