Aven Mindcensor Discussion

DespairFaction on Aurelia Weapon of Angels

1 week ago

The deck is in very good shape. Just a few personal preference changes from me. Im not a big fan of Chrome Mox outside of cedh because the card advantage is really bad. A few other things I would cut are Sigarda's aid since it has weird timing issues, and combat celebrant since it is fragile in combat and I find that Aurelia Waves and Godo take care of all of my extra combat needs. I would add an Ardenn because its ridiculous with equipment, I would also add a dowsing dagger because beside being good on its own its also good with winter orb. I would look to add a little bit more interaction, either a Blasphemous Act or a Volcanic Offering. I also run with 2 fogs in the form of Comeuppance and Teferi's Protection to keep myself from incoming attacks. Lastly, if you are playing in a setting where you feel that winter orb is necessary you may want to look at some hate bears like Hushbringer, Archon of Emeria, and Drannith Magistrate and Aven Mindcensor they are very good for keeping your opponents off balance, and if they have to shoot a hate bear that means they arent shooting something more important. Oh I would also add Tome of Legends since you already have manifold key.

TriusMalarky on First ever EDH deck... help?

1 week ago

When it comes to EDH, I like to use a 5-point building strategy. This includes

  • Lands(largely fixing)

  • Ramp(the higher power stuff)

  • Card draw

  • Win Condition

  • Interaction

Every card in your deck should be in one of those 5 slots. Additionally, I consider cards like Fellwar Stone, Signets, Talismans and Arcane Signet to fit largely in the 'land' slot. They're there for ramp, yes, but they're also largely there for color fixing.

Also, your win condition should be fairly compact. You can take a combo route, or you can have a couple specific cards that can win the game on their own or with a little support.

In discard themes . . . you don't get all that much. All the discard payoffs that help in other formats are too slow in EDH.

So I'd take the Pox plan -- use Smallpox, Pox, Hymn to Tourach, Wrench Mind and Vicious Rumors to throttle your opponent's hands. Use spells like Deafening Silence, Rule of Law, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Leonin Arbiter and Aven Mindcensor to prevent your opponents from getting back on their feet. Then, hit them with some win con of your choice. Make it quick, though, because they will eventually get out of your lock and come for your throat.

I believe the white version of those two cards is Aven Mindcensor.

I'll do a green one instead!


Elven Environmentalist

Creature - Elf Rebel

Flash

If an opponent would put a land into play, if it's not the first land put into play this turn, then you create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token instead.

3/2


Create a were-dinosaur.

You're welcome :) I appreciate your interests in my deck!

Exploration is great for getting extra mana with Golos activations or, as you already said, with wheels. I really love this card, but feel free to cut it, if it doesn't work out for you.

Jeweled Lotus is sadly not too good for this deck. It's kind of good in the first two turns, but I would highly recommend Mana Vault over it, because you can use it to cast Golos, Tireless Pilgrim or activate him, or cast a "Feel the Wheel" combo. It's a dead card in the mid to late game.

I can definitely include Silence. I just didn't do it, because I think that Grand Abolisher and Vexing Shusher are better for the deck. But if you need more, include it.

I considered Flusterstorm and Pact of Negation aswell, but they're not too good with Jeskai Ascendancy, but more important they're not too good with Golos, Tireless Pilgrim in general.

I will probably make the Alms Collector cut, but I have to think about Aven Mindcensor. I think that having another 3 cmc flash creature, to interrupt opponents tutoring and fetching is just too good.

Thank you very much for your interest again. I really enjoy the discussion!

boristormodor, thanks so much for getting back to me. You answered my question about how do you win with Cyclonic Rift or Finale of Devastation off of Golos, Tireless Pilgrim activations.

I cut Alms Collector and Aven Mindcensor for Hullbreacher and Opposition Agent.

Here is the link for the copied deck.

https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/3534586#paper

I found it by searching Golos decks on Edhrec.com and using Jeskai Ascendancy and Living Plane as inclusions.

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker cEDH

1 month ago

Some Commander Legends updates:

weezel, Maralen of the Mornsong going back in supported by Opposition Agent, still not going as far as Stranglehold but Aven Mindcensor also not bad with it.

uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.

LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.

Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

I keep waffling on Plunge into Darkness, I think it helps more than hurts. I'm about 90% sure i'm going to take Angel of Despair or Corpse Dance to permanently add the tutor in.

Meh cards: Retreat to Coralhelm

Cards to consider adding: Aven Mindcensor, Jace's Erasure, Propaganda , Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Solemn Simulacrum, Frantic Search, Ponder, The Magic Mirror, Psychic Corrosion, Jace Beleren, Reliquary Tower

Remember than milling people out is likely how you will win.

Definitely make sure to add more than just basic lands, otherwise, it'll be hard to cast things. Go to https://www.managathering.com/duallands/Azorius.html for other of the choices. Clicking the lands will take you to the TCG player page for the land

Great list! I assume you also posted this list on Mtggoldfish.com under the name of thealt.

Doesn't Opposition Agent take the place of Aven Mindcensor?

Doesn't Hullbreacher take the place of Alms Collector?
