Triton Deckling

"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 huge budget player, so be ready to have suggestions turned down because I usually can't afford 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.

Feel free to ask for advice on a deck (preferably commander), and I will do my best to help out. :)

As for my playstyle, I'm definitely a Spike. 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 upgrade a deck. Most of my decks are based similar to top lists (e.g. the best Breya deck), with some tweaks to them.

As for decks I like to play, it depends on the player pod. 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.

SaifurCommander Now that Tempt with Discovery's price has dropped, I think it's a perfect addition to the deck! Do you have any suggestions as for what to cut for it, potentially? The Tron Lands are good, but I don't think I'd need the colorless mana they produce. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey so no one left a comment on my deck, a comment would be appreciated. Thanks!

Looking for cards to upgrade my good 'ol Omnath deck, nothing crazy expensive, just looking to make it run more smoothly:

Said on Mill or Not ......

Since you're running mill EDH, people will target you naturally (since they're sore losers). I'd recommend some group hug cards such as Dictate of Kruphix, Howling Mine, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and Font of Mythos. While also making opponents deck out faster, you can also get more mill from Sphinx's Tutelage and Jace's Erasure.

If you don't like giving opponents cards, some pillowfort cards would help, such as Propaganda and Ghostly Prison to prevent opponents from attacking you. Honestly a combination of pillowfort and group hug effects would work.

Also Undead Alchemist is nice grave hate and mill.

Hope these suggestions help!

I built a wall tribal/ramp deck, and it's been functioning quite well. So I was wondering if there was anything that I should swap in/out in order to make the deck more consistent.

Keep in mind, it's a rather budget deck ($30), so please keep suggestions budget for the time being. Thanks!

JaceTheSwagSculptor fancy meeting you again! hahaha

I intended this deck to be more on the casual side, and I do know how to optimize it via adding stax pieces/Strionic Resonator to the deck. When I asked for optimization, I meant mainly for cards that were more optimal in place of cards that might be lacking in this deck. Hopefully this clears up any confusion!

Peanut3181 I was considering Basalt Monolith in place of a mana rock, because you're able to untap it via Brago. I can most definitely add it in. I'll also add the Trial and Oath of Jace back in, since at worst they're basically sorcery spells that stay on the field lol.

I'll consider Frost Titan and Luminate Primordial. I used to have Luminate Primordial in the deck, but took it out because it had too high of a CMC.

I think the potential to go infinite is there for Peregrine Drake, which I'm a bit hesitant about. However, I will consider them!

Some of the cards are really good, but they're kinda expensive for me. I'll add them to the maybeboard if I can trade for them, or get my hands on them in general, I will add them in.

@both (or anyone reading this): So as I mentioned to Jace, I intended this for more casual games. But! As you both may know, Brago is quite the hate magnet on the table. I think if he is too much of one, I may just say fuck it and go for the more cutthroat build, because I enjoy my decks functioning consistently and winning. I have done this before, with my Breya deck, so this isn't new haha. Anyways, I want to hear opinions on the deck.

I'm also happy to test it out the way it is, and then see if I should go the more cutthroat route, since it wouldn't take much investment lol.

I don't think so because melding is different from flipping. Similar to the flip walkers, Neglected Heirloom  Flip won't flip. Then again they're planeswalkers, so they're an illegal target. Anyways, hope this helps! (And is correct)

Made a Brago, King Eternal decklist a while back, and wanted any input on cards that I either might have missed that provide value in some shape or form.

Also, I know the Rishadan pirates are good in him, I don't know how I feel about them in a list that isn't supposed to combo out.

Here's the deck:

LVL_666 I agree Cast Out is definitely superior to Oblivion Ring because of Flash and Cycling, I'll try getting my hands on one for this deck for sure!

Decree of Silence is a great card! I'm only concerned about its mana cost, but I can cheat it in via manifesting it and then blinking it.. idk I'll have to test it haha.

Thanks for the suggestions!

LVL_666 I think Astral Slide is an awesome idea for this deck! My only issue is not having cards with similar effects, for redundancy. I'd definitely use it if I had more tutors in general, but a I think it's a great card! Thanks for the suggestion and upvote!

Suggestions before I start dedicating myself to acquiring the rest of the deck? I think it's pretty solid, let me know if I missed anything:

Also, Strionic Resonator is a no-no suggestion haha. Basically any infinite combos.

#12

Epic Experiment, but I think your x-spells will fizzle with it. Also, I think Rosheen Meanderer deserves a spot here. Oona, Queen of the Fae is another very good win condition pseudo x-spell. Also Doubling Cube, Kruphix, God of Horizons, and Mana Reflection would be good for generating a metric ton of mana.

I know I have more ideas, but I'll have to look them up. I like the deck!

I personally think Fatal Push over Go for the Throat, and Leyline of Sanctity over Aegis of the Gods. Kor Firewalker is a neat card against burn too, for the sideboard. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are also good sideboard/mainboard cards for control matchups too.

Love the deck!

May 15, 2017 3:17 p.m.

A more optimized list than this one, I meant haha. My bad. :p

May 11, 2017 2:55 p.m.

BlueGuildKnight Thanks for the kind words! I actually have a more optimized Ayli list that I put together, I'll happily check out your list for when I upgrade this initial list!

#16

I think Bonds of Mortality would be a good switch for Archetype of Endurance (I love the latter to death tho haha), Boon Satyr can probably be Rancor. Also Hero's Blade probably deserves a spot too. Otherwise the deck looks good!

KeelHaul10 appreciate the intention for hugging and upvote! Hahaha.

I've actually never looked at Faith's Reward in this deck as a recovery card, I think it's a very good and very unique addition! I think Ghostly Flicker could get cut, as I have plenty of Felidar Guardian-like creatures that do similar things and can be reused with Brago.

Thanks for the suggestion and upvote!

Ah, okay! If so, I'd recommend Rhystic Study, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Lodestone Golem, and Leonin Arbiter for more taxing effects. Hope this helps!

theSLiKbandit Didn't read the description carefully- my bad! I don't follow Duel Commander rules that much, but if any of the other cards are Duel Commander legal, they're very good with Brago!

May 9, 2017 4:44 p.m.

Here's another Brago deck haha, less cutthroat but looking for any suggestions outside of infinite combos (no Strionic Resonator pls):
