Very good point, DrkNinja! That earns you a +1!

Just throwing this out there, but how long til you think Urza gets banned?

Putting forth my Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck for further review. I'm looking to add Crash of Rhino Beetles as another creature finisher, considering dropping Dryad Greenseeker for it.

Looking for any suggestions and upvotes!

Narset, Parter of Veils seems like a strong include. She would pair nicely with Teferi's Puzzle Box . Magus of the Will would give you another Yawgmoth's Will , should you need a bit more of the effect.

I really don't have anything to offer in the way of advise. Kudos on getting into the cEDH playstyle. I think there will be a lot of Urza showing up there, and the decks will probably all play the same way. At least, that's what it looks like so far; I'm sure some folks will come up with some more fun or janky ways to play him, but for the most part, this deck style is the route Urza will go.

Muldrotha is so much fun to play with, and she provides so many unique builds! I love seeing other Muldrotha lists, as they help me see different play patterns that I hadn't thought of. Like your inclusion of Hesitation . I've had that card for years, and never played it; now it can have a home! Kudos!

Urza, Lord High Artificer looks pretty dang broken. I hope the card doesn't become too expensive to get, or hopefully I can pull him in a pack. He'd be fun to brew around, but honestly, I think he'll end up being banned in Commander. He's just too damn good.

Kudos on putting a build together already. Hopefully, you'll get to play it for some time.

If Willbreaker is a big part of what you want your deck to do, then you'll need to protect her. Diplomatic Immunity , Swiftfoot Boots , Lightning Greaves , and Mask of Avacyn are all good ways to do this. More card draw appears to be a must here. Rhystic Study is a blue staple, and Coastal Piracy will fit your theme of running unblockable creatures.

May 21, 2019 11:55 p.m.

War Cadence is a cheap alternative that can help you get damage through. You should also consider running Spell Swindle - counter a big spell, get a bunch of treasures. And its on flavor.

Lavinia, Azorius Renegade might provide you with some more stax.

May 21, 2019 11:32 p.m.

Or you could Archenemy the Stax player.

Ouch, KyojiTakenouchi, why the hate?

That's a pretty good list, cdkime (I chuckled aloud at your comment about your cat).

Something I would add to, and that cdkime touched on, is to not get too cute with card interactions. Think about what your Commander does, and the cards you use to build around it, to do what you want. Then, try to avoid getting too far off the beaten path. Its easy to get a handful of cards together that do something cool together, but you have to look back to see if that interaction is going to A: be part of what your deck actually wants to do (especially if its built heavily around the Commander), and B: how likely and consistently you'll pull it off, and if its worth it. It gets easy to fall down a rabbit hole of cards that work with each other, but you have to keep a focus on what the deck does, how it wins, etc, and make sure you don't veer too far from that goal.

May 16, 2019 7:15 p.m.

25 lands is not going to be nearly enough. You probably need to run at least 36, along with around 10 forms of ramp. As far as the rest of it goes, it doesn't look like you're trying to do anything really complex; just going aggro. It may work for you, but you may find you run out of gas quick, too. But if that's the way you're going, have at it!

Said on Rakdos's Revelry...


Some other cards good at making opponents lose life are Pestilence and Pyrohemia . Some other red options for causing damage are Warstorm Surge (high CMC, but good return on big creature casts later in the game) and Goblin Bombardment , especially good if you are running some of those persist creatures or an Aristocrats theme. As mentioned earlier, add in some ramp, and add some card draw.

May 16, 2019 2:42 a.m.

Said on Rakdos's Revelry...


I think to really make Rakdos run, you need to get early damage through so you can cast him quick. Cards like Goblin Fireslinger , Spear Spewer , and Thermo-Alchemist come down early, so you can make sure to get the one damage through on turn three or four to cast Rakdos. Cards like Palace Siege (dragons mode), Subversion , and Retreat to Hagra also make sure to deal damage to your opponents, allowing you cast Rakdos and giving you value for more creature casts from the life loss.

Squee, Goblin Nabob should have a home here, too.

Said on Raff's Renewal...


Mj3913, I just put in an order for Hangarback Walker . It just seems too good to not get in this deck. So I'll be adding that, and then looking at subs for my two new sac outlets. Raff is going to be really legit here pretty soon.

May 9, 2019 2:32 p.m.

Said on Raff's Renewal...


Mj3913, good point about Hangarback Walker , and since it would die upon entry as a state-based effect, I wouldn't need the sac outlet to combo off....that's very much worth considering.

I hate to cut Dictate of Kruphix and Jace Beleren , because the synergy they have with Smothering Tithe is so good.

I considered cutting Retrofitter Foundry , but its low CMC has allowed to hang on, and in a pinch, it creates a servo token.

Cutting so hard...

I have had Baird, Steward of Argive on the chopping block for some time. I'm just not sure he offers enough for me to keep him in. He has a nice tax to attackers, but I really haven't gone in on a pillowfort strategy, so he might get cut.

Thanks for the help!

Said on The Big Mean...


The new Evolution Sage should absolutely have a home here. So should Ichor Rats . Triumph of the Hordes seems rather pointless here. Most of your creatures already have infect, and if you are looking for them to gain trample, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa would probably be money better spent as a repeatable effect, or Overrun .

You also need more card draw. Zendikar Resurgent is great, and Beast Whisperer would not be wasted here, either.

Said on Given to Fly...


Its a bit clunky, but Wizard Mentor would allow you to return a bounce creature, or any creature with an ETB you want, to your hand for another cast. But it is clunky...
