Big creatures with cool ETB effects could be good. How about Bogardan Hellkite and Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip?

Thank you for your list of Commander staple functions! That is awesome.

I'm doing research for a new tutorless hub, and noticed a conversation you started in the past about tutors. Do you have any decks of yours (or others) that you would recommend of a good example of a deck that is successful without relying on tutors. I noticed your Sphinx deck is pretty close to that, but if you have any others you'd like to recommend, please let me know as soon as you can.

Thank you!

It seems totally fair. I'll see if I can't dredge up some of the examples I've seen in the past, and see if the creators are game. Thank you!

Thanks for all your hard work making the site run! TappedOut is awesome, I use it almost daily. Hope that it will be around for a long time! (:

Sorry for the pep, but I've never been one to give up just because others perceive something as difficult. (:

I don't think we can account for all Hubs covering every kind of ill-conceived deck. If someone really makes a deck with 20 tutors and no win condition to tutor for, are they really going to look up the definition of the Hub to double-check if Tutorless technically applies? And is anyone looking for a Tutorless deck going to think that deck is tutorless? The tough part here is finding how close to "Players can't search their libraries" are we talking, or what variation of cards are okay to tutor, or what variation of cards are not okay to tutor for?

A good example of the land thing is a Lord Windgrace deck. Almost any fetch land synergizes with him as a Commander, because it puts lands in your graveyard and pulls them out of the library. In this case, even Basic lands fall under the category of being combo/synergy pieces, because it is a Lands Matter deck.

This is tricky, but I don't think the Hub is overly difficult to define, the current definition just relies more on the individual deck to determine whether the Hub is valid for the deck. A simpler solution or wording likely still exists.

Usually, part of the implication of being tutorless is that the deck is less consistent by making it more difficult to pull off two- or three-card combos. Maybe to help include decks that have the occasional Terramorphic Expanse, but are tutorless 'in spirit' the definition could include searching specifically for combo pieces or answers.

Tutorless: A Commander/EDH deck that does not search its library for combo or synergy pieces.

They certainly do Metroid_Hybrid! I recently built a Naban deck without any of the Mage tutors, and it was really nice to have all the extra card slots that would normally go towards those creatures and the synergy pieces they tutor.

Geez, it was just a joke... I think people are smart and confident enough to realize they can disagree with the statement.

Trust me, I'm open to the fact that people think my ideas are bad. I'm posting on the internet, helloooooooooooo!

Hey there all,

I've seen lots of posts from people who don't run tutors in their pods, or in certain deck builds. Recently, I noticed a couple of my decks didn't have tutors either, and I thought it would be a fitting tag for people who are looking for good decks with no tutors.

What do people think? Good idea, or good idea that needs more refinement?

June 21, 2019 3:07 p.m.

lol, thanks SynergyBuild! I'm glad you like the flavor. That hit me from out of the blue. I'm trying to make the Feature header look as much like an advertisement as possible, lol. Thanks for the love!

And yeah... I know there's much better ways to build the deck. :p I reread his ability last weekend and got bit by the deckbuilding bug. My wife tells me I look like Naban (I don't), and everyone tells me I'm a wizard (I'm not), so I decided to run Naban as a Commander for kitchen table Wizard tribal, to fool them all (the FOOLS!).

It's almost all just cards I had laying around. I got tired of netdecking a bunch of stuff (how I built my last deck), and decided to just build one by just leafing through my blue stacks and compiling the synergistic stuff.

Some good cards for Monoblue Artifacts are Whir of Invention , and Mechanized Production .

You can take advantage of Urza's artifact tap ability with stuff like Static Orb , Storage Matrix , and Winter Orb . I cannot stress how good these are, just use Urza to tap them down on your last opponent's end step, and you don't suffer from their penalties during your untap step. It can totally lock opponents out of the game, while you actually produce mana for other activated abilities at end step by tapping these!!!

Might consider Freed from the Real in order to get some more untaps in. It combos with Master Transmuter (which you have) and Myr Battlesphere while Urza is on the field to give you infinite mana and Myrs. In fact, any artifact that brings in an additional artifact on ETB will allow this to go infinite.

I just made a Naban, Dean of Iteration deck, so I'm tempted to recommend him since he doubles Urza and your Trophy Mage et al triggers, but I don't think you have enough Wizards to really pull it off.

Glad I could make you smile Optimator. (:

I like this deck a lot. Always been a fan of the original Weatherlight crew and story. A D&D campaign I'm running has a lot of similar characters and themes, so it really resonates with me right now.

Let me know when/if you make major tweaks to the deck and I'll use a Feature Token on it.

There's lots of legendary lands you can search for with Sisay. Academy Ruins is one options that gives you retrieval (and synergy with Dagsson). Dark Depths , Inventors' Fair , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , and Yavimaya Hollow are all other useful options too. Of course, lands tend to be $$$ expensive, so yeah...

Hey, how about Gerrard's Technicolor Dream Coat ? Eh? I think that's a pretty neat play... Prismatic Lace does the same thing, but can't be removed. Scuttlemutt is ramp that synergizes great with Sisay and puts a body on the board. I'd say drop Fellwar Stone for it, but the Stone can help get Sisay out Turn 3...
