Daedalus19876 Thanks for the upvote and suggestions. You were viewing the deck using PC? If yes you can mouse over the deck list portion and the background will automatically turn to black for ease of viewing.

You're right about Arcane Denial, will replace it with Swan Song once I managed to get an extra copy of it.

Eldritch Evolution is a good redundancy and I'm trying to get a copy of it as well. What would you cut to make space for this?

edengstrom1 on Kadena, Master of Morphpets

I have found that Kadena is better than I expected her to be and have won quite a few games with her, not cEDH but still pretty good.

I have found that Guardian Project and Soul of the Harvest work really well since drawing two cards off of your free morphs is better than one. I also lean heavy into control with Arcane Denial, Counterspell and Assassin's Trophy since many of her morphs are already pretty controlling and you want to buy some time while you develop your board.

Maybe think about adding in the Talismans and Birds of Paradise to make sure that you can cast Kadena on turn 3.

Of course, Craterhoof Behemoth and Demonic Tutor are great, but also pretty expensive.

Overall, your deck looks pretty good as is!

The deck looks awesome, and the background is COOL, but damn did it give me a headache XD

I'm surprised not to see Deadeye Navigator in here, as a supplement to Emiel. You might look into Heartless Summoning to accelerate some of your lines, it makes a lot of the Peregrine options mana-positive :) I'd also highly recommend Swan Song over Arcane Denial (I never like granting two cards to my opponent), and Eldritch Evolution in addition to Neoform. Finally, you seem a little light on card draw.

More edits, some sad cuts had to be made due to a super tight budget. I am a bit unsure about the amount of interaction currently ran, and about the effectiveness of a card like sun titan, as I haven't been able to test vs other decks and only really play solitaire.

out:

Swords to Plowshares, Blue Sun's Zenith, Wrath of God, Detention Sphere, Gilded Lotus, Thespian's Stage, Ethersworn Canonist, Counterspell, Meteorite, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Ephemerate, Ghostly Flicker.

in:

Fumigate, Azorius Cluestone, Hedron Archive, Island, Fblthp, the Lost, Arcane Denial, Rishadan Cutpurse, Tithe Taker.

Have you considered Arcane Denial? Circular Logic/Negate seems decent too. Frantic Search is the best common 0-drop.

Arcane Signet is great ramp, as are Mind Stone and Commander's Sphere. Did you know that Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora were common, once? XD

Hybrow on Xyris but You are the Snake

I love my Xyris, the Writhing Storm.. One of my favorite decks right now.

I put Altar of the Brood in for fun, and its surprisingly good.. I managed to mill the entire table.

Standstill is also very nice if played at the end of your turn, you get to draw three along with any other opponents.

I also went heavy counter spells in my version, Arcane Denial and Dream Fracture are both good options.

TheChaosVault on PDH(UB) - Araumi demands additional performances

1 month ago

Have you considered Keep Safe to protect Araumi? Since you're running Turn Aside and Arcane Denial it seems like a desirable card.

Mainboard Cuts: Worn Powerstone kinda sucks. I'd rather pay one more for Hedron Archive or even Sisay's Ring.

Cathartic Reunion is just better Tormenting Voice in your deck. Run Chandra hugging mom instead of Tormenting.

Cuts from the Sideboard listed cards:

Prismatic Geoscope: Running 18 basics means you might not always get 3 mana from it, more like 2. Eitherway I feel it's bad as a rock and lackluster as a cage target.

25 cards I'll suggest for <15$ (EDHREC TCGPLAYER listed prices, may be higher or lower):

  1. Final Parting: Double tutor, one to the yard one to hand. Good investment for 5 mana. It's no Buried Alive but we can't expect many cards to be. (Price: .90)

  2. Cephalid Inkshrouder: Discard which doesn't matter to make shrouded Mairsil? Hell yeah. (Price: 0.29)

  3. Soliton: Another U: untap is solid. (Price: 0.10)

  4. Forbidden Alchemy: Basically a draw 4 most of the time for 3 mana and can be flashed back if you discard it or mill it another way. (Price: 0.11)

  5. Pestilent Souleater: Can be a backup win con with a card or two that can also pump. (Price: 0.10)

  6. Blighted Bat 1 for haste is worth it when not having Anger in GY or Hammer of Purphoros on board. (Price: 0.05)

  7. Twisted Abomination: Get a land with it then give Mairsil regenerate for a black when his commander tax is too high. Can never have too much protection when the commander is the whole gameplan. (Price: 0.03)

  8. Magus of the Bazaar: Draw 5 for tap on Mairsil. What's not to like? (Price: .46)

  9. Etherium-Horn Sorcerer: 3 To replay Mairsil isn't bad. Also can just be a cascade card if need be. (Price: 0.15)

  10. Cinderhaze Wretch: Untap affect + can be used to disrupt enemies. Also can be used on yourself if you really want for some weird reason? (Price 0.26)

  11. Dreamscape Artist: Discard isn't a downside, and it ramps. Can be put on Mairsil as well if need be. (Price: 0.26)

  12. Vector Asp: B: infect is very strong. Especially with following card. (Price: 0.20)

  13. Spikeshot Elder: This plus infect is a gross combo. Even without R to deal 4 to any target is strong, better than lightning bolt! (Price: 0.21)

  14. Grinning Ignus: A way to bounce Mairsil that's ALSO ramp. Pays for a commander tax! (Price: 0.16)

  15. Frantic Search: Free loot isn't ever bad. Instant speed too. (Price 0.47)

  16. Sinister Sabotage: You don't have much interaction. These next 3 are just interactive pieces to stop your opponents from racing you. Sinister is a good counter that also can basically draw a card with Surveil. (Price: 0.12)

  17. Terminate: No regen for them! Instant speed kill. Nice. (Price: 0.44)

  18. Arcane Denial: Great counterspell that's not mana intensive. (Price: 0.46)

  19. Perplex: Either a counter, makes an opponent lose their hand, or you can transmute to tutor for a 3 drop such as Rings or Commander's Sphere. Very versatile. (Price: 1.24)

  20. AEtherize: Bounce all attackers is a good way to protect yourself, since you already have many ways to protect Mairsil. (Price: 0.23)

21/22. Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal: With enough mana rocks infinite mana and with that you can win for sure. (Price for both: 5.30). I think it's a worth it investment.

  1. Whispering Madness: Wheel that can be repeated. With GY synergies it's amazing. 10/10 (Price 0.57)

  2. Chain Reaction: Boardwhipe most of the time. You need some mass removal. (Price: 0.67)

  3. Pyroclasm: Clears tokens easily. (Price: 0.16)

Total Price: $12.94

Some pump activated abilities may be a good other add.
