TCK_Green on List of EDH Tutor Cards

8 months ago

TIL that emojis aren't parsed properly by TappedOut even though they appear fine in the preview! Let's try again...

I've found this list really helpful whilst drafting decks over the last few years, thanks for putting it together! :) Judging by the 400,000 views that this has had I'm guessing I'm not the only person who feels that way :D

Since this list hasn't been updated since pre-WAR, I thought I'd put together a pretty comprehensive list of all tutors released since then (including all of the tutors mentioned in the comments above). Hopefully putting it in one place will make it easier to update! Note - as per the list you've curated, I've excluded any tutors that fetch specific cards (e.g. Yanling's Harbinger ) or basic lands. I've also left off the card types and colours since there's already enough text in the comment and it can be seen from the preview. Right - on with the list!

CARD: TUTOR FOR - ANY COMMENTS/SUGGESTED CATEGORIES

It wasn't entirely clear to me what categories the below cards should go under since they search for specific card subtypes:

Seeing as the three creators of this list haven't been on TappedOut in at least 8 months I'm guessing that this comment won't go anywhere, but at least it's all in one place for people to search for later. I'm happy to help maintain and update this list if I'm given access. (If I haven't heard back in a couple of months then I might look at creating a copy of this list and linking it here for anyone looking for an up-to-date list of tutors.)

wallisface on The New Most Competitive Modern Deck--Dryads

9 months ago

Omniscience_is_life, some examples of how the 5 modern-playable tribes operate, to give you an idea of what you’re up against:

The above decks can all win their games by turn 4 or 5, most of them giving the opponent constant grief while doing so.

As a further example, Slivers are not a modern-viable tribe, because just throwing creatures down on the board and hoping for the best doesn’t cut it in the modern environment.

I think you need to consider what you’re actually getting out of Dryads, and whether you want this to be a competitive deck, or a casual/meme deck.

Nsuper the common Modern combos that I can think of right now are:

  • Devoted Druid combo, using Devoted Druid, Vizier of Remedies, and then usually Walking Ballista.

  • Storm decks, using Grapeshot, and then a billion spells that gain mana, draw cards, and recast stuff from the grave.

  • Goblins have a combo in Conspicuous Snoop and Boggart Harbinger, by then fiddling with the top of their deck to put Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Sling-Gang Lieutenant on top.

  • more i'm forgetting

  • Outside of combo, I would think most burn, aggro, and mill decks can close out and win the game regularly between turns 2-5 (mill less so if it's doing it with control-elements). When I say "aggro" I'm thinking Hardened Scales, Infect, Prowess, Dredge, "Hammer Time".

  • Tron often also can force the opponent to scoop on turn 3 or 4 if they can get Tron going on T3 and drop some BS like Karn.

What’s the difference between “Tutors for Tribal Cards” and “Tutors by Creature Type”? All the cards from the former are included in the latter, so why not just combine them into one or the other?
Also, I’d add the Harbingers, Boggart Harbinger, Elvish Harbinger, Faerie Harbinger, Flamekin Harbinger, Giant Harbinger, Kithkin Harbinger, Merrow Harbinger, and Treefolk Harbinger.
Also, my search for Harbingers turned up Nahiri, the Harbinger, which goes in “Notable For: Jumping Through Hoops,” and Yanling's Harbinger, which brings up the Planeswalker Deck tutors. Sure, people are unlikely to run them, but some might.
I’d also like to suggest a category: Combo Tutors. These are the ones that are part of a combo AND search for another one of the pieces. Ones that come to mind are Godo, Bandit Warlord and Forerunner of the Empire. Godo tutors for Helm of the Host, which he goes infinite with, and Forerunner tutors for Polyraptor, and from then you simply need to give Forerunner indestructible and then play Polyraptor to go infinite with.
Lastly, I’d suggest changing “Tutors to Graveyard” to “Tutors w/ Graveyard Synergies,” so you can include cards like Mausoleum Secrets, Fiend Artisan and Diabolic Intent, which interact with the grave while not tutoring TO the grave. Dimir House Guard would still go here, since his tutor effect merely discards him, he IS a sac outlet, and many graveyard deck will still desire him for it.

biggestmtgnerd on Goblin over run

Some ideas:

If you have the budget, are willing to splash black, and are fine with combo, you could lean into Conspicuous Snoop and include Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Boggart Harbinger, and Sling-Gang Lieutenant. That way, you won't need to outlast the opponents because you can combo win on one turn.

You could splash blue for Distant Melody or green for Collected Company. If you want to stay in mono-red, Goblin Ringleader and Goblin Matron can give you some nice card advantage.

If you're just playing casually and aren't too picky about modern legality, you can play Muxus, Goblin Grandee, perhaps with Skirk Prospector to help get him out early.

Also, both Mogg War Marshal and Goblin Instigator are better than Krenko's Command because they can be played through snoop or warren.

Hope this helps!

Destroyerbirb on Grenzo Doomsday Snoop - Budget CEDH

1 year ago

I'm still editing the deck, but Queen_Lulu, the combos work like this.

Combo 1) Use Doomsday or Goblin Recruiter to stack these five cards in this order. (There are some things you can change around.)

Dark-Dweller Oracle, Conspicuous Snoop, Torch Courier (Have to put into the deck), Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Sling-Gang Lieutenant/Mogg Fanatic. (If it's Doomsday you can put the top two cards on the bottom and activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and you would get a similar result.)

Find a way to draw a card, then play Dark-Dweller Oracle. Activate it once (for now), and play Conspicuous Snoop. Using the Conspicuous Snoop, play Torch Courier, and sacrifice it targeting Conspicuous Snoop. Now Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is on the top of your library. Conspicuous Snoop has Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker's ability, and has haste thanks to the Torch Courier. Activate the Conspicuous Snoop/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to make a copy of itself. (It's a non-legendary permanent.) The copy will be untapped, and you can make infinite tokens. Finally, use Dark-Dweller Oracle one last time to get rid of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. With Sling-Gang Lieutenant/Mogg Fanatic on the top of the library, you can use any Conspicuous Snoop to gun down your opponents.

Combo 2) Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts. Kiki copies and the Conscripts untaps Kiki.

Combo 3) Play the Snoop and Boggart Harbinger. The Harbinger will put Kiki on top, combo off, then use the last untapped Snoop to copy the Harbinger and put the Lieutenant/Fanatic on the top to win.

A good thing about the last combo it that there is a failsafe in case you somehow get Kiki onto the battlefield. If you have Tel-Jilad Stylus, plus the Snoop and the Harbinger, use Kiki to copy the Harbinger, but with that ability on the stack, use the Stylus to put Kiki on the bottom of your library, and then the Harbinger will tutor Kiki to the top.

Other combo payoffs are Goblin Bombardment, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, Vindictive Vampire and Zulaport Cutthroat.

HughsMarc1 on The Goblin Swarm!

You might want to swap Boggart Harbinger for Goblin Matron Also Warren Instigator + Madcap Skills is pretty insane, it makes instigator hard to block, hurts badly AND drop two gobs from your hand. I do personally run them instead of your Frenzied Goblin. You might want to give it a try ;)
