Triton LV17 Wizard

"Had some free time and decided to write the primer for Triton" -Triton

Mainly a casual player, haven't been to any tourneys yet. I make up for that by having enthusiasm for the game. Been playing MtG on/off for about two years, but I've managed to learn quite a lot over that time. I started out playing Standard, because of the more smaller cardpool, then moved to Commander about a year ago because I had trouble keeping up with Standard set rotations. As of now, EDH is my main format, but I also play Pauper and Modern.

Also a budget player, so be ready to have a few suggestions turned down because I usually can't afford some cards, and most of the expensive ones I get from friends.

I love brewing decks (understatement), so it allows for me to flex my knowledge of the card pool of MtG to give recommendations, so feel free to ask for advice on a deck (preferably commander), and I will do my best to help out. :)

I'm definitely a Spike as far as playstyles go. I enjoy victories in games, but I can always take a loss in a game, as it's a way for me to gauge how to improve a deck. Most of my decks are based similar to top lists (e.g. the best Breya deck), with some tweaks to them.

Decks I enjoy playing vary depending on the player pool. Playing 1v1's I usually choose an aggro/stompy deck, but for multiplayer, I like decks that are combo/not turning creatures sideways.

Some personal information: I play in a death metal band with friends and also a huge metalhead who has a large passion for music.

soul22 and jpsuchecki, I should mention that most Edric decks have extra turn spells that help string together more combats and the tiny creatures help drawing into them. It's what makes the deck really good, so I must ask: should I splurge on the extra turn spells? Not sure if either of you has faced a deck similar to this one before but if not it's perfectly fine! Would you think that more Overrun-like effects would help the deck?

Thanks for the suggestions!

Left a comment on the deck, was a well-made one so it was somewhat difficult to suggest cards!

Here's the zesty debut of my Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck. There's no extra turn spells since they're cheap. Make sure to ask for Edric, because he took over the list.

Genesis Wave seems like a fun card to add in this deck. Also maybe Heroic Intervention as another way to protect your permanents?

I can't think of any other suggestions, looks like a solid deck!

This is a tad hard since I agree with a lot of your choices, here's what I think:

-Negate

-Remand

-Rhystic Study

-Unsubstantiate

-Sorcerous Spyglass

I'd also recommend Dispel as a potential counterspell in your suite because most of the things your opponents are gonna do is use instants to try and stop you from combing off.

Hope this helps! :)

I love this list! One thing I'd recommend for you to consider is Smokestack, which is an all-star in my Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck. Transmute Artifact and Merchant Scroll are solid options to tutor for combos.

I'm pretty new to the cEDH community, but one other thing I'd recommend (if you haven't checked it out) is this. There are many good people to check with and your deck can possibly be one of the sample deck lists!

Happy brewing!

tendouji I did mean shocks, haha. What would be a cheaper alternative to ABUR duals? I've seen fastlands recommended before.

merrowMania Okay, I'll make those changes. Thanks!

I decided to try my hand at making a competitive Horde of Notions deck, and I believe it could potentially be moved up a half step.

I had recently discovered the Hermit Druid combo is actually pretty good in the deck (there are a few elementals that sac themselves for damage like Magmaw and Blazing Hellhound) and then midway through building the deck, it had the same initial combo as in the Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck featured. I then based it off the shell of that deck and created a deck that I believe is a great way to use Horde of Notions.

Here's the deck, the name is kind of a working title but that doesn't matter too much:

One of the downsides of the deck is that it's a one-trick pony, so once people know what the deck does, they know how to stop the main combo.

Let me know what you all think!

Said on Mina and Denn, ......

Glad to see many people like the twins! Mina and Denn were my first EDH deck, and I still have the list here! I took it apart and rebuilt it into Omnath, Locus of Rage, however.

Some lands that are super fun to play are Glacial Chasm and Gruul Turf, since they provide you with extra lands to play, and Drownyard Temple + Glacial Chasm is a hilarious interaction. Would also recommend Ramunap Excavator and if you have the money, Crucible of Worlds to play alongside Glacial Chasm.

That's the most notable land base,the rest I'd recommend lands that fetch others, such as Evolving Wilds and Blighted Woodland to help with landfall. Also include duals that help with color fixing, of course. :)

That's all I can think of for now, hope this helps!

Hey I was wondering, would shoes be a good alternative to the ABUR lands? I have those for my deck, but can't afford the original duals for my deck. I know that you have to pay for them when they enter the battlefield, which was the equivalent of a kid finding out that Santa isn't real when I found that out.

Suns_Champion I love the idea of Phyrexian Dreadnought for this deck! It's a matter of affording it, but I'll add it, along with any other cards that may be good for the deck to the Maybeboard so I know what to keep an eye out for when trading! Body Double used to be in this deck, but I cut it for more mill and options for Mimeo to copy. Lazav is a tad reliant on the opponent for my liking, but he is a pretty fun card for sure!

I love Consuming Aberration as a large creature (wish I could mill myself), and Taigam as a milling engine, and Fauna Shaman as a tutor! Those I will look out for all of them!

Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

Left some advice on the above deck, hope it was useful!

Here's my submission for the week, this deck deserves some attention:

One thing that really stood out to me was that the average CMC is ~4, and there are only 4 ramp cards. That's higher than my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck and it has plenty of high-CMC bombs!

There aren't too many options for ramp in BW, but you'll find plenty of ramp in black. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers go together amazingly. Basalt Monolith is a nice, quick 3 mana. Orzhov Cluestone, Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone and Hedron Archive all provide ramp early game, and can be cracked for draws late game.

As for cuts, I'd recommend Vizkopa Confessor and Sin Collector since single player discard is low-impact in multiplayer games. Agent of Masks, Yahenni, and Revenant Patriarch are either mediocre or don't really follow the deck's game plan.

Hope this helps!
