Akiri, Line-Slinger Discussion

plakjekaas on Pattern of deck Pool?

1 month ago

My decks tend to have a pattern of meiosis. I started out building a few two-color decks, but in time, I ended up splitting the colors, each half of the deck growing out to their individual outspoken parts.

What started as a Mina and Denn, Wildborn landfall deck, became on one hand a mono green landfall deck with Rhonas the Indomitable in charge, which very recently changed into Omnath, Locus of Mana big green ramp. On the other hand, the red half melded into Etali, Primal Storm big red, big burn deck, that's now helmed by Kumano, Master Yamabushi .

My Athreos, God of Passage aristocrats deck split into Rankle, Master of Pranks and Heliod, God of the Sun the same way, and my The Locust God deck split into Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and a mono blue deck, now led by Naru Meha, Master Wizard .

Out of the 13 decks I currently have, 8 of them are monocolored and one of them is colorless. The multicolored decks that remain, are held together by synergies that demand more than one, like Boros equipments ( Akiri, Line-Slinger + Arden, Intrepid Archaeologist ) , Jund Sacrifice ( Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire ), Temur Landfall Omnath, Locus of the Roil and 5C Shrines (Golos, by lack of inspiration). But now that I have two different Omnath decks, I have an itch to build the other two Omnaths as well. That's pretty much how my patterns keep changing, a new line connecting current decks usually leads to inspiration to build the next.

I do notice my developed preference for monocolored decks, but I don't feel hindered by this way of thinking. I like leaning into it, finding cool ways within the limits of the color, to make the decks suprising anyway, to make them as interesting as can be for me to play.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

Why exactly is Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder in tier 1? Just for Partner colors? If so, why is Akiri, Line-Slinger much lower?

Seeing Roon of the Hidden Realm above Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Amareth, the Lustrous, and in the same tier as Tuvasa the Sunlit strikes me as odd. Is there some secret tech that pulls Roon out of tier 4(casual)?

I'm surprised that Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is "only" tier 3, considering the 2 card combo with Shielded by Faith. I suppose it is because GW doesn't offer a lot of consistency for it?

Liesa, Shroud of Dusk still needs to be added. Probably goes right next to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Almost exactly the same 99. Her tax effect also hits creatures, but she costs more mana in exchange and isn't one-sided, so it evens out.

I have a partner voltron. I use Akiri, Line-Slinger and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker.

Jeskai works a lot better than boros. I have the godo/helm combo and feast/famine sword with Aggravated Assault combo in case I get stuck. Blue counter magic and draw is a life saver.

Having partners in voltron is invaluable. Akiri is the go to and when she gets too expensive to recast or I want flying, I switch to ishai. They can also both be out and kill two people at once, but I prefer to be more conservative.

Lightning Greaves is a really good card, if your commander only needs to be either hasty or protected to execute your game plan.

In an equipment strategy though, Shroud prevents other equipment being attached to the greaves-equipped creature. It's really awkward to have to shift the greaves away from your one big creature to equip it with other pieces, opening it up to removal while doing so.

I'd cut that.

I'm a fan of Brass Squire in these decks, cheating on equip costs is pretty powerful if a quarter of your deck is equipment.

Relic Seeker is solid.

Buried Ruin can grab an equipment from the graveyard back to hand, great utility on a land.

Inventors' Fair seems like a must-run.

Mistveil Plains is pretty cute to put your Sunforger targets back into your library, but make sure you have enough white permanents to enable it if you're going to use that.

Some untapped boros dual lands seem great: Sacred Foundry, Battlefield Forge, Spectator Seating, Needleverge Pathway  Flip, Rugged Prairie

Is there a reason you took the kobold as second partner other than novelty? Akiri, Line-Slinger is very powerful as a beatstick in the command zone

Reznorboy on Lurrus With Red

Lurrus of the Dream-Den

I have virtually no experience playing with Lurrus, and so I'm asking people here who would know their opinions:

If you could trade having Lurrus in the Command Zone to have him as a your Companion instead, in exchange for having access to Red, would you?

Because now you can.

Miara, Thorn of the Glade and Akiri, Line-Slinger accomplish this. Unfortunately, I am quite certain that (as of now) this is the only way to play Lurrus with more than 2 colors.

(I'm not so much interested in how exactly the deck would be built so much as just would it be worth it).

Have you thought of Akiri, Line-Slinger partner with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept artifact creatures buff Akiri so does sials. Plus using things things like Aether Spellbomb buff akiri until you need to use it and you can pull things back from the graveyard with things like Myr Retriever and Skeleton Shard these are all commons an uncommons plus a alot of draw and fetch lands from common and uncommon artifacts

It said this was part 1 of 2. I think this is an interjecting story to link the trailer into the main story. Also, it's pretty neat that Akiri, Line-Slinger gets to make an appearance in this set. I was astonished when Nahiri said her name in the trailer.
