I'm not a frequent user, but I do have an account there. When could I find you there?

P.S.

My name there, and on reddit, is different: DrAlistariGrout

Hi!

I've been working on an Edric deck of mine based on your list, Simon's list and the primer you two did, I'm a big fan of your work. I'm nearly finished with a version I'd be happy with and I'd like to hear your opinion about it; Edric's weenie death squad. "Maybe out" cards are cards that are probably going out, "Maybe in" cards in the maybeboard are about to replace them. The deck isn't really cEDH, I can hardly find enough people for a pod like that here, but I like Edric and the people I like to play with are on the optimized/competitive level, so anything goes (meaning that, for instance, Mental Misstep is dead, but cards like Force of Will and Mana Drain are used a lot).

Also, a few specific questions:

  • What do you think about Merchant Scroll? You guys included it in your budget list, but I don't see some extraordinary utility here (preparing an answer sorcery speed, getting a grave recursion spell and, as of recently, getting Nexus of Fate). I suppose there is no room for it any more, but I'm checking to be "sure".

  • Swan Song gives an opponent a relevant blocker and that's a pain. However nothing I can think of compares to the extraordinary deal of a 1 mana counter. Is it worth the risk in non-cEDH or should I risk and play Spell Pierce (a conditional counter that won't work always, but will work fine more often than not)? Is there a 3rd option you'd recommend?

  • Would Beast Within be a good addition? Since ground blocker isn't relevant to me and there are quite a few decks with problematic permanents around (and a few particularly skilled/problematic players piloting such decks), especially since this is not cEDH and threats can stick. Thoughts?

  • I can't find a Chrome Mox atm. What would you suggest instead? A land or a dork?

  • Eventually I'll get Eladamri, Lord of Leaves, it's just a matter of finding a good offer. But for the time being, and we might be talking months here, I need a replacement. Should I prioritize protection and play Lightning Greaves instead or is there another temporary alternative you'd suggest?

  • What's the purpose of Phantasmal Image in here besides providing a decent attacker? I'm struggling to find one, and when I do I have 2 other decks that want/need it far more (because 2 mana Palinchron is a thing). So I'd like to know more about its function in here to either motivate myself to find it or to find a decent replacement.

Thank you in advance!
