Opifex Deckling

Hello my name is Kuy, I use a group hug deck to experiment using clones and counterspell D̷̠͈͕̞̳̥͎̱́͡ream ̞̝̜̮͖̞̝̜̮͖̞̝̜̮͖̞̝̜̮͖H̯orizon (it probably isn't as listed exactly), and I have been working on a Reanimator deck kind of to blindside the meta I play in Ayli 'n' Friends

Three things I have learned that are very helpful for deck building:
1. Mutual exclusivity(types of Mana, types of target, tempo of even odd, etc.)
2. Hypergeometric distribution (likelihood of a card pull per draw per pull)
3. Strata ("in any order", "put on top of your library", or Deck thinning)

The distinction between hypergeometric distribution and strata is the distinction between deck and library.

MegaMatt13 The Solemn Simulacrum and Cauldron of Souls makes sense, haven't needed much ramp because of Reanimation combos which are there in place of ramp.

I have Panharmonicon on the battlefield, an Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and a Fiend Hunter with Ashen Rider, and Karmic Guide on his LTB return from exile. If I sacrifice Fiend Hunter can I sacrifice Ashen Rider in time to return them both with Karmic Guide and rinse repeat?

Lazav = X+1. May the variance of mutual exclusivity be with you.

BU lands and fixers are your friends

February 19, 2017 1:22 a.m.

Lazav counterspell, discard, control magic, mill, clone, and kill.

February 19, 2017 1:20 a.m.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind best control commander hands down.

Does Liliana, Defiant Necromancer  Flip's emblem make a creature that was returned with Diabolic Servitude return at the end of the turn? I know it wouldn't with Whip of Erebos because it replaces the death with exile.

Maybe you will find something that helps you with your Ayli deck in mine, I am going for grave/flicker ETB combos, I also have Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip which are great because Planeswalkers that return from the grave and they both play well with Ayli.

carpecanum reminded me, Magus of the Abyss is great if you have plenty of creatures.

I forgotten that this was commander haha, I was thinking casual format. Arcanis the Omnipotent, Uyo, Silent Prophet, Paradox Haze. Contingency Plan is better if you can retrieve or play cards from the grave (flashback snapcaster), if you go with Uyo Ghirapur Orrery is a must have and the ability to retrieve and copy it.

Oops Dispel

Sideboard counter spells that are conditional e.g. Dispell

Brainstorm and Djinn of Wishes are my favorite blue art. The foil Djinn of Wishes looks amazing. Contingency Plan is a great card. I play blue green in EDH so I can play cards like Eternal Dominion. Unsummon is the blue control cantrip, try to mess up their tempo by countering the next play with Counterspell. Stolen Identity is good if you use flying. Elite Arcanist

Whisperwood Elemental is great for manifests. I use it for flicker GU though.

February 18, 2017 12:44 p.m.

If you are going wide Cryptolith Rite, and Elder of Laurels for green. I used to use Pawn of Ulamog and Blood Pet with Decaying Soil to trigger infinite deaths. Deathgreeterand cards that trigger on death like Extractor Demon are good. If you went that route, milling with Altar of the Brood and cards like Animate Dead that let you take from their grave. Great sacrifice fodder: Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton.

I edited my original reanimator deck, it has more discard, etb effects and ltb effects Fiend Hunter and Faceless Butcher were added and do awesome with Panharmonicon as well as just sacrifice on etb for permanent exile. I prefer low cost cards that I can use to reanimate or high cost with epic ETB potential. Not sure if I should add Exhume and I am always looking for new ways to flicker or animate that works well with the sacrifice mechanic. I also have Odric, Lunarch Marshal so if you know anything with ETB potential that also has lifelink that would be perfect. Victimize could be worth it if I can include more draw.

If I copy Lumbering Falls with Mercurial Pretender will it become a land at the end of turn?

Said on Hell Hath No ......


Beastmaster Ascension is great if you are constantly on the attack.

I built this as an Aikido deck, it does suprisingly well at preventing a player from getting off a destructive combo with their Commander. I like things like Control Magic and I mostly use Kruphix to play the larger Blue spells to get the maximum effect. There are some loose ends that need to be tied though and I have been building a really large maybe-board of cards I don't have that might fit. I could use any sort of powerful scry or repeated powerful scry. Trying to build off of controlling the top deck.

Said on here let me ......


I still think generic mana dumping Aikido is great for controlling agro. Being too restrictive can allow some decks to manipulate your permanents to their advantage, maybe a Mindslaver combo to empower an opponent to have it all fall apart for them in the end.
