Chainer, Nightmare Adept Discussion

griffstick on Why does rarity matter?

I totally get what you're saying legendofa because I also use to wonder the same. Until I saw them put commander only cards in other sets. Rarity should mean, that commons are easy to find and Mythic rares are hardest to find. That's not the case always because Loyal Unicorn is harder to find than Chainer, Nightmare Adept. So I think the rarity has to do with reprints and power levels. Also Chainer, Nightmare Adept was a Mythic rare and got reprinted as a rare so maybe I'm wrong about power level too

Stardragon on Phoenix Deck color and commander

1 month ago

I making a tribal Phoenix deck and i don't know what color/s i should nor the commander. While ik the majority will say mono-red since that what all but one phoenix is while another small group will say go 5 color so i can use Worldheart Phoenix, i'm going to no say to five color just for that one card. As for mono-red it's on the table and i'm thinking if go that route it's either Torbran, Thane of Red Fell or Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip. However Rakdos seems pretty enticing for it outright better spot removal and board wipes, but also access to many great recursion cards, ik phoenixes do come back it's there thing but they rarely if ever come back to the battlefield instead going to your hand and they're expensive to cast because they can revive they more expensive mana wise than other creature of simikar power but a ridiculous amount. Most of the recursion is conditional or having you go through hoops to bring them back so extra mana is kinda unwarranted at least the amount of extra mana they tack on, or if it is reasonably costed the mana to bring it back or the hoops you have to jump that much more harder to do, but by adding black i can send them back to the battlefield with any hoops, though many will be exiled by these effects if they die again, the commander would most likely be Chainer, Nightmare Adept. Or should i go Jeskai as blue and white gives great flying support, haven't really thought a commander if this route yet.

EDIT: After talking with people i figured out that Boros, Jeskai or Mardu is the way to go because that gives access to Zirda, the Dawnwaker and she helps immensely with bring back my phoenixes as her second ability hit even creatures in the graveyard. Now I got to figure out what route im going to take if Boros Zirda is the commander done and done, but still having problems with thinking of a jeskai commander, as for mardu there is only only one I can think and that's Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, though at best she hits only 9 phoenixes out the 29 and i only choose 5 out those 9 to be in my deck She still does return some of creatures. Idk yet but red/white will be the new base with red still being the main color obviously

Your guy's thoughts?

Here a link to the start of my deck haven't finished till i figure out my commander/color scheme yet while mono red atm that can change Reborn from the Ashes

All these Rakdos commanders...I'm still pondering if I should rebuild Chainer, Nightmare Adept, but recently build a version of Prosper. And now there's Florian. Hm...

Rakdos, Lord of Riots might be pretty good here. You're planning on dealing damage anyway, so casting him is easy. And after that, the ramp he can do i onsane.

For Chainer, Nightmare Adept, looting is your friend its sorta like having a limited second hand. Of course you can use his ability only once a turn so I think having a good amount of recursion like Apprentice Necromancer is good. Pair it with cards like Grim Haruspex you can refill your hand to discard more cards. So I would build it as a looting deck focused on recuring good stuff.

  1. Discard and cast Apprentice Necromancer using Chainer, Nightmare Adept’s ability.
  2. Sacrifice Apprentice Necromancer bring back a creature from your graveyard such as Archfiend of Despair swing and sacrifice it at your end step.
  3. With Grim Haruspex in play you will draw a card which you can discard to Chainer, Nightmare Adept to recast Apprentice Necromancer next turn.

Using madness cards can help you retain some more value as well.

Another fun thing you could do is target Phyrexian Delver with Apprentice Necromancer and you can recur another target creature permanently. Keep in mind you can do this on other people’s turns as well so with enough mana you could recur 3-4 creatures a round but keep in mind Phyrexian Delver does drain your life.

You can also utilize sac outlets if you do use nonpermanent recursion. So Viscera Seer, Altar of Dementia, Goblin Bombardment, etc.

Encore could also fit in Rakshasa Debaser.

Just try not to include too many different things or the deck becomes too janky. Tho we all love our jank.

Out of the two I would go with Chainer, Nightmare Adept if you want a deck that is somewhat reliable and can utilize the cmdr while also not having to focus on the cmdr.

On the other hand using the lunch lady as a cmdr really requires you build around her or she is pretty useless as you wont have food tokens to activate her ability. But with limited food token cards I think only The Underworld Cookbook actually cares about discard. I do think she can be a fun janky cmdr and have a Stuffy Doll deck planned for her.

Looking at Lord of the Forsaken, I can say that Chainer, Nightmare Adept can cast Eldrazi for free now. This seems perfectly fine ;)

Also, is it just me or would Lier, Disciple of the Drowned have caused a massive outrage just like a year or two ago? And now everyone ist just like "yeah, whatever".

KayneMarco on Chainer, Discard Master

BradtheImpaler: A while back you asked if I had to choose another commander who would it be? Well I actually did wind up changing my commander to Chainer, Nightmare Adept to add a mostly consistent recursion engine to the deck. Doesn’t really matter if he’s not on theme with the deck because it ran great without relying on Kroxa so I figured why not. Also I acquired a Dauthi Voidwalker during a draft and found out how well it synergizes with the voidwalker. That and the voidwalker shuts down graveyard decks which this deck had a weakness towards.

Vallaris on What Commanders From MH2 Are …

If I had to pick one, it would be Piru, the Volatile . Love the callback to the original Elder Dragons, and he's in my favourite three-colour combination no less. Honestly though, he's probably going to go into my Kaalia, Zenith Seeker deck which already has a lot of Legendary creatures.

Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar is a close second but already have plans for her to go into my Chainer, Nightmare Adept deck.

I really love what MH2 is putting out but honestly kind of relieved that none of the Legendaries are really making me feel the itch to build a new deck. Most of the cards I'm excited for are things I'd like to add to decks I already have or have been working on.
