rambunctiousOrator on Animar - Power Level 8.5/A

An 8 or a 9 is hard. I think a distinguishing feature of a 7 is that the deck will aggressively win if left unchecked. Aside from a few problems with your deck running out of gas and having to play one spell a turn, I'd say with some lucky draws you are winning by turn 5 or 6 regularly; i.e. a 7. When I think of an 8 or a 9, I think that this deck will guarantee a win unless someone designed their deck to beat yours. This pushes past normal levels of competitiveness into something more. Some decks can never be an 8 or 9 because the strategy isn't inherently unfair enough. You may be able to get to an 8, I doubt this strategy can ever be a 9.

That being said, we can squeeze more out of your current strategy. there are a lot of inefficient creatures, inefficient ramp, and room for other non-creature spells here.


Those are just a few examples of cards, in general you want to smooth out your early game, and both tireless do that with either card draw or treasure. I feel like you could seriously improve your 6+ roster. Get rid of any 6+ cards that you feel like don't lead to winning the game the next turn. Let me know if you want to continue, have any questions, etc.

Unfortunately kookoo cards like Gilded Drake, and Spellseeker are too expensive for myself. I do like Cemetery Illuminator a lot and I’ll be sure to find a place for it. Agent of Treachery is cool, but it’s a bit more expensive than I would like for it’s effect. Thank you for the suggestions

Why do people eat gummies one at a time? THANK YOU.

Ok so actual recommendations:

Cemetery Illuminator works great with flash and can stop reanimation effects.

Agent of Treachery, Armory Automaton and Gilded Drake can steal permanents to disable a combo.

Spellseeker and Sea Gate Stormcaller have great utility, especially at instant speed.

KBK7101 on Getting back

Out of the four, I'd probably go with either Selvala or Brago. I think both of them could be pretty decent, even at a lower starting budget. They've also both gotten some stuff in the past few years that have basically become staples.

Selvala has stuff like Return of the Wildspeaker, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Unnatural Growth and Garruk's Uprising on the lower end and stuff like The Great Henge, Finale of Devastation and Cultivator Colossus on the higher end.

Brago has gotten some great stuff as well. Teleportation Circle, Spirited Companion, Ranar the Ever-Watchful, Charming Prince, Hero of Bretagard and Yorion, Sky Nomad alongside more expensive ones like Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Agent of Treachery (card is pure evil, by the way), Fierce Guardianship and Lithoform Engine.

Lanzo493 on Satoru Umezawa Brainstorming

4 months ago

In case you haven't seen it yet, Satoru Umezawa is a legendary creature costing with a once-per-turn trigger of when you activate a ninjutsu ability, look at the top three cards of your library and put it in your hand, the rest on the bottom. Now here's the part that got me excited for it. "Each creature card in your hand has ninjutsu .

Wow! Swap your Ornithopter for a Blightsteel Colossus to kill anyone at the table. I intend to play this deck with eldrazi, praetors, and awesome ETB creatures like Agent of Treachery.

Satoru Umezawa does more than meets the eye, though. Which is why I want to ask what other people think he is capable of. First of all, you can bounce your creatures with ninjutsu for additional usage out of them. Say, for example, you have Burning-Rune Demon that is unblocked. You can ninjutsu bounce it, and then re-ninjutsu it in to get another ETB effect! It's a bit over-the-top and requires a ton of mana, but it's nice to have a mana sink with nothing better to do. Or, you could bounce Emrakul, the Promised End and hard cast her to abuse the cast effect repeatedly. If you wanted to be really mean and had Palinchron in hand and Peregrine Drake in play and unblocked, you have infinite mana to abuse ninjutsu abilities during combat, which could lead to something like infinite Agent of Treachery stealing.

So what do you think of this commander?

breadandbutterr on Muldrotha Copy/Steal

This looks like so much fun to play and I'm so interested in making it! I do want to ask about Vedalken Orrery as it doesn't work with Muldrotha, the Gravetide's ability so do you just have it because it's a good card? There's not a lot of card draw here so I think I'm going to personally not run it. I'm also going to swap out Intuition for Lim-Dul's Vault or even Fact or Fiction just to cut down on costs.

I also highly recommend running Dauthi Voidwalker, Opposition Agent and Agent of Treachery!

Amazing deck! Thank you for an amazing starter point :)

Scenario: opponent casts Quasiduplicate on his Agent of Treachery with Orvar, the All-Form out. If I Path to Exile the Agent with Quasiduplicate on the stack does he get any copies of Agent? I think if i respond to the Orvar trigger and path Agent then, he doesn't get anything?
