Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

2 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Traveler's Cloak, Tangle Wire, Karmic Guide, Wall of Omens, Fblthp, the Lost, Chancellor of the Spires are card that come to mind and that are not too expensive if i remember

Mindshrieker could potentially be a big flyer. Patient Rebuilding? Hedonist's Trove? Chancellor of the Spires? Mind Sculpt? Leyline of the Void so everything milled is exiled instead. Ashen Powder and Extract from Darkness are always fun in my mill deck.

Then there's always the Persistent Petitioners route...

Have you ever considered cards like Body Double , Mind's Dilation , and Chancellor of the Spires ? They're a good way to use your opponents' cards against them. I'd highly recommend giving them a try!

To make the character limit worthwhile, I think we really need to do what MTG R&D should have done a long time ago: institute "mill" as an official keyword. There is a 50 character difference between "put the top X cards of your library into your graveyard" and "mill X"...

Chancellor of the Spires has 341 characters, and could have saved so much space by instituting "mill" as a keyword...

Although, for a format like this, I'm doubting we'll be milling a whole lot... This kind of D&D/MTG hybrid campaign would probably be mostly combat and adventuring focused.

I feel like the Chancellor cycle are amazing for a deck that can offer such awful chances at risk v. reward lmao. Chancellor of the Spires , Chancellor of the Tangle and Chancellor of the Forge for reference. Opening Hand? GREAT! Not opening hand...meh.

Good luck with the deck! +1

You can cut the lockets, they are way too slow in EDH when there are better budget options. Echo Storm isn't that great as well. Mind's Desire is cool but in the current deck build you'll probably copy it only once and that's a waste of mana. Reversal of Fortune is also quite high on the CMC when you already have something similar on the lower side like Spelltwine as well as Memory Plunder . Stolen Identity is also high on the CMC curve and would cut. Treasure Keeper is a one time use and it's dies trigger effect is meh, would cut. Chancellor of the Spires is cool but as again high CMC cost there are better option like Diluvian Primordial which you have, plus triple blue in a three color deck is extensive. Mindleech Mass colors are a bit extensive and there are better options.

Hope that helps!
