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 a year, 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 4 months ago because I had trouble keeping up with Standard set rotations. As of now, Commander is my main format, but I occasionally play casual Casual and Frontier.

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 am currently a running start student attending Bellevue Community College. I play in a death metal band with friends and also a huge metalhead who has a large passion for music.

PG7m sure, I know I'm not allowed to post decklists on this page, and not 100% sure about the comment rules here, but will do: GB Delirium

Emzed Okay, I'll go with 5 for now depending on my meta (it's very diverse, so it's hard to pick the correct cards to counter strategies) and then change it depending on how the meta changes. Thanks for the suggestion!

Emzed I like the suggestions! How many of the blue-hate cards would you advise me to add in the deck? I'll be able to select the specific ones pretty easily, so I'll just need a number. Thanks for the suggestions!

Dredge4life idk how I forgot about Command Tower and Command Beacon lol. Yahenni actually looks pretty great in this deck, since she can be tutored. I may consider Sylvan Safekeeper, but usually I have just the amount of mana to cast and entwined Tooth and Nail, but I'll consider it on the off-chance I draw him before I can cast TaN. I don't know exactly how well Birthing Pod would work, but I bet worst-case it can tutor said safekeeper. Thanks for all the great suggestions and upvote!

Ashnod's Altar + Animation Module + Mazirek is an infinite combo, the problem with it in the deck is that it cannot be fetched with the main card of the deck Tooth and Nail. I do have Altar in here as a sac outlet for comboing off, but usually I will be fetching Viscera Seer with TaN. Thanks for the suggestion, however! If you want to see the Mazirek deck that I own, the link is below:

Trtl those cards are pretty good in this Mazirek list (they're amazing in your usual list for sure). I'll add some of them in, like the Awakening Zone-like cards and maybe Fecundity if it helps me the most in this deck. Thanks for the suggestions!

January 16, 2017 3:36 p.m.

Trtl I am working on the deck right now, so I'm going to add in a more detailed description in a bit, just wanted some input on any cards that I might've missed out on.

Here's a competitive Mazirek decklist for the tier 3 decklists, as I noticed he's needing a list. I'm still working on it, and suggestions are appreciated:

It's basically Tooth and Nail.dec in colors.

Pinkie_Satanas There's usually no artifact hate mainboarded, and honestly I haven't ran into that problem yet. I have considered Stinkweed Imp and such, but I prefer more selective milling in this deck because all the creatures have value only on the field except for being a name for Delirium. Thanks for the suggestions and input!

I've been playing with a GB Delirium deck in pauper, and I've ran into this dilemma: Unearth or Grapple with the Past? I'm currently using the latter, but sometimes I find myself with plenty of mill happening via Commune with the Gods, Vessel of Nascency and Grisly Salvage. Thoughts?

AndWelcomeToTheJam will do, it's probably but been my bad luck of getting mana screwed. I'll consider cutting something for Raven's Crime (it's a great Delirium enabler after analyzing it long enough), probably Duress later on.

Planning on acquiring this deck in paper starting tomorrow, so any suggestions to finalize the deck as-is (meant to be dirt-cheap pauper so cheaper is better):

Snuff Out is free removal in this deck. Fleshbag Marauder, Anowon, the Ruin Sage and Merciless Executioner would suit this deck pretty well, along with Blood Artist and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet if you have the budget. I'm guessing you've already gotten Triskelion as a suggestion for this deck, but you could also include Mephidross Vampire to machine gun down your opponents with Trike.

AndWelcomeToTheJam I'll make the swap, the reasons for Star over Sphere are pretty narrow, as you mentioned and if it does happen, it happens. Innocent Blood is more efficient, and as you mentioned, it is another card type for Delirium. Nausea I will add in the sideboard since it is a good board wipe against said decks.

Recover819 I think Werebear is awesome for this deck, but Moldgraf Scavenger does have some tight competition with it. I'll be able to free up some space for the Dead Weights, probably two in main and side (I'll be working on sideboard after the mainboard in a bit). The Graf Rats + Midnight Scavengers combo is cool, and I may add it in depending on how fast I can achieve the combo. I'll definitely add in the artifact lands, because they really help with Delirium.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

AndWelcomeToTheJam thanks for all the great suggestions! The only card I can see myself having trouble acquiring is Chromatic Star (budget constraints), but otherwise I will incorporate the cards to the best of my ability.

I got inspired to make a casual Delirium deck, and figured I might as well turn it to Pauper (all common cards from any set). The cards I am trying to replace are Gnarlwood Dryad and To the Slaughter for cards that fit similar roles.

Without further ado, here is the list:

Casual Triton

HAMMARE it's all good haha, nice to know it's nostalgic and glad you like the deck. Thanks for the upvote!

I gotta say, love this deck. Been taking a peep at it every now and then to see how it's doing. :) So, as a fellow Breya player, I do have a few questions:

  • What do you think of Impact Tremors in this deck? It substitutes as a Disciple of the Vault and is quite inexpensive. I'm guessing that you already have Purphoros doing the same job, however.

  • Have you considered Grand Architect and/or Pili-Pala? GE can combo with either Pili or Nim Deathmantle for Breya to go infinite. I understand that Pili can be dead at times, however.

  • What is your opinion on the Foundry/Sword combo in this deck? I've been considering cutting a couple cards for it (they're cards I'm considering to cut anyways).

If you do ever feel like checking out my Breya deck (it's similar to yours, but lacks some combos/tutors due to budget), it's on my profile but I'd happily link it to you. Happy brewing! :)

Also, I will continue to advocate for Silumgar, the Drifting Death to move down to tier 4 unless I'm missing something..

Looks solid otherwise, I'll probably look over it in the nigh future and will comment on anything. :)
