Oloro_Magic Helper

Hey all, welcome to my page!

I haven't been on tappedout for that long but I have really taking a liking to the site and the community that comes with it, seeing all the different brews is a big part of my day and keeps me distracted from all the Pests, those being the tasks I do every day.



You will usually find me scrolling through the "Help!" tab on the main page looking through the in-progress brews and trying, not always succeeding, to offer some help with decks; especially with side boarding which I find a lot of people both new and old struggle with. You can also find me on the various deck help forums around the site doing the same thing. I love Magic and seeing new and unique decks always makes me very thrilled.

If you ever need help on a deck please shoot me a message and I would be more than happy to help. I primarily play modern and legacy but have dabbled in competitive standard and I play a good deal of EDH casually.

I will never claim to be a great deckbuilder, but I am a pretty good tinkerer and I love taking tiered lists and seeing what can be done with them, usually I just add Genesis Chamber but ehhh.


deck: Abzan Revolt Tokens
G/W Ramunap Death & Taxes

Merfolk (Retired) (Casual List still on site)

U/B Taking Turns (Currently in Testing: Stay Tuned)

Could you give me some suggestions for my Zombie EDH deck?

I would do probably 6ish because that is about $8.50. Would that work?

I'm down for that. I'll go ahead and initiate.

Can I swap out the Opt with the 3 Immerwolfs? I would get more use out of them than 1 Opt (my sister has a werewolf deck proxied up and I want to get the cards for it eventually).

The rest of the trade is fine tho.

TheAnnihilator says... #6

I don't have those things, really. T_T I mean I have a Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. He makes allies! =D Also, a Sylvan Advocate and a Halimar Excavator. I can slice the price a little too, since you'd just be trading to help me out. But if you're not interested, the trade I suggested previously is perfectly fine to me.

Edit: I actually have Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, and Ajani Vengeant too.

TheAnnihilator says... #7

Okay, so how about this: your 1x Fatal Push Promo (FNM, $12.71), 3x Immerwolfs ($0.75ea = $2.25), and 1x Opt (INV?, $2.45), totaling $17.41 for my Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (M15, 15.93) and 1x Hada Freeblade (WWK, $0.89) comes to 16.82.

I would honestly love to get more than 1 Push from you, but I don't have anything on your wants list. Are there other cards you might be interested in?

Let's MORPH OUT is my morph deck that I would like help with. Thank you

September 21, 2017 7:24 p.m.

Infectasaurus says... #9

I have an all morph deck for casual play and I would love some tips to make it better and I also want to make a deck around snapping sailback from ixalan and I know it's not that good of a card but it's a spinosaurus so maybe I should wait for the next set to really brew something for it?

September 21, 2017 12:34 p.m.

Hello, I have just one quick question. What do those dollar signs next to decks mean? Thanks in advance! :)

opticnirv says... #11

Is there a way to enter a specific basic land variation from a certain set onto my decklist? For example, how would I list a swamp variation 2 from Magic Origins? I know Swamp (ORI) shows one card from the set of Magic Origins, but is there a code to show the one I want out of the four that were made?

Thanks!

Do you have any zendikar expeditions? I didn't check for those initially, but I would love to trade for any you may have

Any enchantments that give my creatures counters and maybe even haste? Thanks.

I would definitely up the Fraying Sanity count to at least 3 as 2 is awkward especially considering it is mill's best way of winning.

All these green players, give me U/B and I'll be happy, you can do tons of interesting things in the other colours green is kinda beat face on its own.

Chittering Rats could be an interesting card here, two devotion and disruption is not a bad deal.

As for the sideboard, Harsh Scrutiny comes to mind as a card that could be good.

Have you thought about included Thopter combo in the deck. Using Thopter Foundry and Sword of the Meek to take infinite turns. Or even adding Krark-Clan Ironworks for infinite mana as well making the combo easier.

Ripjaw raptor is a bit too good to not include in my opinion, maybe even a couple Kinjalli's Caller for a tur one play. Also, if you could get your hands on a Carnage Tyrant that would be a great top end in this deck.

Heroic Intervention is also a strictly better Sheltering Light and is less taxing on the mana. A number of Sheltered Thicket could also be useful in the mana base.

I would also make a sideboard, Abrade is an easy include, as is Sweltering Suns the rest is kind of meta dependent.

This list doesn't look so much of a control list than it is a Kiln Fiend agro list, either way the creature count needs to be cut and you need some better counters. Mana Leak is a nice cheap counter that is pretty good, however you really want Cryptic Command or Spell Snare. Negate and Ceremonious Rejection can also go in the side. That would make the deck a bit more controlling, also Supreme Will is unfortunately just not good enough for modern and should be replaced by something like Serum Visions or possibly Nahiri, the Harbinger and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn combo. Basically, you need to decide if this is going to be a Kiln Fiend agro or a more control oriented deck which makes use of the counters I mentioned above.I'd be more than happy to help with either route by the way.

As for lands, for now try to get your hands on any duals (preferably ones that can come in untapped) as you can, the ideal mana base would have Celestial Colonnade, Desolate Lighthouse, Scalding Tarn, Steam Vents, Hallowed Fountain, Glacial Fortress, etc.

I really think you want more Blinkmoth Nexus it represents a lot of power and can be free value if you make it blue with Grand Architect. For that same reason I would also play Inkmoth Nexus.

TennisPro612 Feel free to take a look at my binder and see if there are any cards that will retain value you may want, in terms of dinos I have Ranging Raptors, Goring Ceratops, and Burning Sun's Avatar as dino's of note, maybe able to get a Ripjaw raptor .

Dr_Jay first off thanks for the upvote!

As for Primal Amulet it does seem to have more of a home in bant with the ramp you have access to but here I don't think it can work simply because turn 4 ideally I can tap down my opponent or cryptic setting up a turn 5 kill. The effect on the card is cool and I'll likely add a section on it in under consideration but as for practical use, it is likely too slow though worth testing probably.

The effect also is kind of what I get from Thing in the Ice  Flip, nice extra value that goes far in winning the game but thing is only 2 Mana and a relevant blocker. Thanks for the suggestion and it's nice to see another turns player. How are you liking bant turns? I personally never was sold on it but I would love to hear your experiences with it.

Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip can also not be a commander. Commanders have the subtype legendary meaning only really Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip can be your commander. If you are new to commander feel free to ask me any questions likewise if you mean you are new to magic as a whole.

I would still cut those Impeccable Timing for either Regal Caracal or 2 more Anointed Procession. The deck now needs to be tested I'll be sure to do some in my spare time for you and tell you how it goes.

September 24, 2017 9:42 p.m.

8 creatures isn't enough for the deck, you want more token generators, Sacred Cat, Anointer Priest are solid options. Also Countless Gears Renegade and Regal Caracal would be very good here. I would drop Malfunction and Revoke Privileges they are expensive and natural card disadvantage.

Also your removal setup should be more like 4x Fatal Push, 1-2x Vraska's Contempt with Walk the Plank in the side m maybe you have too much right now. For that reason Impeccable Timing can also go in favor of the above mentioned creatures or for more Opt as 1 Opt is a bit useless.

The mana base also needs an update I would run something like this.

4x Evolving Wilds (triggers revolt which is important)

4x Concealed Courtyard

2x Drowned Catacomb

3x Glacial Fortress

5x Plains

3x Swamp

2x Island

Of course you could just drop blue altogether as the deck can work in B/W, however blue gives you a better sideboard.

As for your question, neither is really needed and I would drop either for Anointed Procession however Animation Module would be fun to try and make work.

Yeah it is worth testing, it loses the instant speed but the effect is very powerful.

September 24, 2017 8:54 p.m.

I'm not sure how Blood Moon is relevant here as lands don't provide devotion but Kruphix, God of Horizons would not be subject to Humility until it becomes a creature, in the event it achieves becoming a creature then yes it would be a 1/1.

Quote from a mtgsalvation rules forum:

I feel it's important to note here that Heliod will not "lose devotion". Devotion is not an ability, it is simply a count of your permanents mana symbols. Devotion is simply a fact that is true. The rules text on Heliod referring to your devotion is not an ability, but just rules text.

"700.5. A players devotion to [color] is equal to the number of mana symbols of that color among the mana costs of permanents that player controls." - Comp Rules

"Devotion

A numerical value a player has, equal to the number of mana symbols of a certain color among the mana costs of permanents that player controls. See rule 700.5." - Comp Rules Glossary

You don't need to apologize it just makes my life easier. So Ninth Bridge Patrol tokens sounds interesting but you need a reliable way to have creatures leave the battlefield.

My suggestion would be to dip into esper U/W/B for a couple reasons. First off it gives you access to Hidden Stockpile probably the best way to have tokens leave the battlefield whilst still creating value, black also gives you better removal such as Fatal Push, Walk the Plank, and Vraska's Contempt.

Of the creatures you currently have I would only keep Ninth and make Aviary Mechanic a 4 of. Then you want Sram's Expertise and Servo Exhibition for sure. I'll do some more tinkering and get back to you.

September 24, 2017 6:33 p.m.

I'm more than happy to help out but first what is it you want the deck to do exactly, you want to build around Ninth Bridge Patrol with a token shell or more energy based?

Also, if it's not too much of a bother could you possibly switch the default layout back to type it makes it easier for me to make suggestions.
