MortisAngelus on Persist combos

2 weeks ago

This looks nice, but also overly complex and expensive. You dont need this many persist creatures, especially not a biggie like Restless Apparition and Sifter of Skulls . At the moment when you hit your combo, they dont matter. You want persist with an effect (like murderous redcap). So my suggestion are the following:

Take out all Sifter of Skulls and Restless Apparition , then add 4x Altar of the Brood and 4x Carrion Feeder for an additional sac-outlet.

Also, get rid of all the tap-lands and add Caves of Koilos , Llanowar Wastes and Brushland . Not that I think you need them with all the shocklands you have.

Anyways, looks great and thanks for showing me Vizier of Remedies . That could replace Solemnity or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit in my own deck.

Have you thought about Altar of the Brood as a mill wincon with so many blinks?

MortisAngelus maybe keep the white mana and add in Geralf's Messenger and Solemnity - that combo with Viscera Seer and Altar of the Brood is disgusting. Also, Hall of Heliod's Generosity and Mastermind's Acquisition . You can actually drop green/Melira in favor of Solemnity.

Have you considered any combination of Maddening Cacophony , Ruin Crab and Jace's Archivist ? Both MC and RC can get around permanents that give your opponents hexproof and JA has an activated ability that works like windfall.

Also, I'd suggest considering Teferi's Ageless Insight . This enchantment combined with JA essentially increases the number of cards in your hand each time you activate the ability, increasing the size of your hand each turn if you have no maximum hand size.

With Drake Haven's activated ability and Gavi's static ability, may I suggest Altar of the Brood to add some extra mill for the deck?

Tibalt's Trickery and Book Burning do permit some red mill.

With all the cards in your deck offering damage, I'd recommend adding Mindcrank .

Happy Hunting!

The Jace, Wielder of Mysteries/Demonic Consultation combo is really imaginative, and as far as I've seen, original.

However, I think you can gain some more mill for your mana by switching out some of your cards. If counter spells aren't that important, you can replace Psychic Strike with Didn't Say Please . Mind Sculpt may mill an opponent for seven cards, but Maddening Cacophony can mill each of your opponents for eight or more depending on if you kick it. Increasing Confusion costs more to cast from your hand than you are milling your opponent. Considering you have Leyline of the Void in your deck it may be a good idea to reconsider cards that offer multiple instances of mill to replace IC such as Altar of the Brood or Ruin Crab , in which case you may want to add in lands that allow you to search your library for lands.

Also, if the Jace, Wielder of Mysteries/Demonic Consultation combo is your primary objective, you may want to consider more tutor cards including, but not limited to Diabolic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition . You may also want to consider Fraying Sanity to back up your Traumatize if your opponent finds a way to exile your copy of DC.

Happy Hunting!

Lanzo493 on Any Complicated Commanders?

There's the old KCI combo with Krark-Clan Ironworks , Scrap Trawler , Myr Retriever and any 0 mana rock or mana positive rock. There's also Ashnod's Altar , Nim Deathmantle , and Eldrazi Displacer combos involving your commander Breya that go infinite. You've got Time Sieve and Thopter Assembly as well as Sword of the Meek and Thopter Foundry . Skullclamp is great in general. You've got Pili-Pala and Grand Architect combos to use. Painter's Servant and Grindstone . Rings of Brighthearth , Zirda, the Dawnwaker , or Power Artifact get infinite mana with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith . For infinite sacrifice outlets, you can use Grinding Station , Blasting Station , or Disciple of the Vault . Since you're running black and red, you have access to combos with Worldgorger Dragon and Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , or Necromancy (goes great with a sacrifice outlet out, too). Altar of the Brood may work well in a list you make. You can even do Dualcaster Mage with Ghostly Flicker and get infinite thopters with your commander and infinite mana to sacrifice them all to kill your opponents. Those are just some combos I came up with on the top of my head.
