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.

I think the primary two are Altar of Dementia and Hedron Crab. The latter is better with fetches but 2 cards milled a turn isn't too shabby. :) I was also thinking maybe nyxweaver since it can recover cards from grace and does a similar thing.

I want a Mesmeric Orb so bad, it's super good at milling!

Thanks for the suggestions!

DrkNinja Appreciate the suggestion, I'd love Sorin Markov for the deck, he's just a tad too pricey at the moment with all mt EDH projects going on. However, I'll add him in as soon as I have the funding for him!

I agree with Blood Baron tbh, he's in a similar boat as with Vampire Nighthawk and other vamps that were suggested for this deck. He's situational, as you said. The only problem is I don't know exactly what to add except some cards from Ixalan that aren't out just yet (The bishop one). As soon as we get more vamps in Ixalan, there's gonna be some major facelifts for this deck!

Thanks for the advice!

PG7m thanks! I'll consider going to 20 lands, helps with room in the main.

I'm thinking there will mainly be Affinity but my LGS hasn't started Pauper yet. I have a couple friends who play it (Affinity and Eldrazi), so I think basing it off of the top Pauper decks will be a good start.

Raptorlisk true (pun intended), I'll make the change, and actually gonna pick up the rest of the deck today so I appreciate any last-minute swap-ins. :)

Shirkhan92 I definitely agree! I have a friend who has one for trade so it's a matter of when I'm gonna see him next time.

Darkshadow327 will check it out, and I'll make some suggestions to help make it as good as mine. ;)

Thanks for the suggestions!

TheSpiritombEnthusiast I'll consider adding in Gatekeeper of Malakir, the only hesitation I have is it's just target player, and usually I gear my EDH decks more towards multiplayer games so he wouldn't have much impact, sadly. :(

Darkshadow327 there's always room for Edgar Markov decks. ;) I really like some of the Sorins, will pick some up once I'm done with another EDH project haha.

Thanks for all the advice and upvotes! I believe this is the 3rd highest-ranking Edgar Markov deck and now the 14h highest-ranking deck on T/O! I can't thank you all enough!

A couple days ago i started a new EDH deck with The Mimeoplasm. I decided against infinite combos for the time being because they are unfun, and I want to try a less-mean route with Mimeo. It's more of a voltron build and functions very well once you get the ball rolling.

What I mainly need is suggestions to get my graveyard filled quickly because the deck has trouble early-game at setting up the graveyard.

Ahh, okay! Dunno if I upvoted it but I'll do it again just in case lol

August 21, 2017 1:11 p.m.

Budget decks and Gruul decks are always my favorite, and this is two birds with one stone haha.

I know it's a budget build, but doubling your opponents' mana can get pretty ugly pretty fast. I'd recommend cutting Dictate of Karametra for Whispersilk Cloak if it fits your budget Trailblazer's Boots practically give some Borbor unblockable. Gratuitous Violence is another card that is relatively cheap that I'd recommend adding to the deck.

I like Unravel the Aether since the artifacts have to be tutored for again which is far harder than using Eternal Witness or something like that to add it from grave to hand. Cheaper $$-wise, mana-wise and the Split-Second on Krosan Grip isn't always relevant.

Hope this helps!

Alright, pardon me if I came off as too direct, just had lots of time reading storm lists so I know the mechanisms and means of winning.

Hope the deck goes well, and will be making suggestions for it in the future! :)

With Commander 2017 being released in about 4 days, any last touches I should add to the deck? Outside of lands since I'm working on no EtB tapped lands at the moment. Also feel free to support the cause and leave an upvote if you liked the deck. ;) Thanks!

August 21, 2017 3:55 a.m.

Living Death and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born are both good cards to add in the deck.

Also I'm surprised no Grave Titan is in the deck, he's an all-star zombie.

Also hate to be that guy, but what do you think of Ravos, Soultender and a blue partner Commander at helm? Ravos allows you to recur creatures you want in the hand and is also a lord. The second partner would be up to you but I'd recommend Silas Renn, Seeker Adept in tandem with him.

Hope this helps and this is an awesome deck!

I did the math and Autochthon Wurm is around 44.02 miles/71 kilometers long. (Read the flavor text ;))

Aetherflux Reservoir says:

"Whenever you cast a spell, you gain 1 life for each spell you've cast this turn."

Why worry about life when the card itself has you gain the life?

Plus you have Tendrils of Agony, which takes out one opponent and gives you even more times to fire off Reservoir.

August 19, 2017 6:13 p.m.

I'd recommend Aetherflux Reservoir as another win condition.

My LGS is gonna start doing pauper tournaments, and I'm looking to finalize this deck mentioned in the comments here deck, and making it the best it can be.

Additionally, a generic idea of a sideboard would help. I'll be of assistance in outlining a basic one, but any suggestions I might've missed out on would be great!

There aren't too many budget constraints as most of the pauper decks are under $50. :)

August 19, 2017 4:44 a.m.

I second/third/fourth black for all the hate enchantments you can use. I'd also recommend Anafenza, the Foremost at helm because of her nice hate effect. Anyways, I think choosing the commander at helm is a whole different can of worms, best of luck!

dlamars the only thing is, I'd rather have my vampires cast to get the maximum value off of Edgar. Appreciate the suggestion, however! Feel free to post your take on the deck since I'm always curious as to what other people are using.

LegalizeRanch I've looked at a few of the Edgar Markov decks, and quite a few of the suggestions were Cathars' Crusade. I'll add it in since the reason is very justified: 2 +1/+1 counters a vampire being cast? I'll take it! Kalastria Highborn is a card I'm gonna have to get later on, but she's super good! I do agree Blood Seeker is a tad subpar since he relies on your opponents.

Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

Cabal Ritual, Ponder, Preordain, or Second Sunrise? I also think Herald of Kozilek is an often overlooked card in this deck imo. Also maybe the red rituals would help.

As for cuts, I think Whir of Invention seems a tad greedy for mana, but reconsider it after testing.Sphinx's Revelation falls under the same reason as well. Whispering Madness and Reforge the Soul can probably be cut because you already have Windfall and Wheel of Fortune. I've also personally never liked Fact or Fiction, as giving your opponent choices isn't usually a good idea.

Also the land base could be improved by taking out the tapped lands. Outside of the ABUR lands, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Spire of Industry are all amazing in this deck and deserve a spot.

Hope this helps!
