Codex Shredder Discussion

Daedalus19876 on ♫ Feed Me, Seymour ♫ : Kroxa EDH

ThoAlmighty: Thanks! I've been on the fence regarding Blade of Selves here -- it doesn't help with much beyond my commander, but it's great with him.

Is Azra Oddsmaker that good without any real evasion in the deck? I've never run him personally.

And I've wanted to use Cavalier of Flame here, but it's a little awkward -- lands are usually some of the first things that get exiled to Kroxa's escape, and Neheb does the voluntary looting much better.

I'm not a huge fan of Megrim style effects -- they quickly lose value as you strip opponents' hands.

And I'm running both Codex Shredder and Wand of Vertebrae ! Redundancy, yay :)

Thanks for your thoughts!

I'd say you want to add Blade of Selves , Azra Oddsmaker , and Cavalier of Flame from the maybeboard in exchange for Sewer Nemesis , Final Parting , and Rotting Rats . Maybe find space for Megrim -like effects as well? Also, I like Codex Shredder over Wand of Vertebrae as it can mess with top-of-the-library tutors, get something back in a pinch, and turn a Vampiric Tutor into another Entomb. Sweet deck!

Crushfield on Budget Urza $200

yahelhotam - Once you have infinite mana, there is a number of shenanigans you can do. Most of it revolves around Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal .

Take Codex Shredder For example. You could mill everyone's library.

Is this going to be a deck that aims to use these cards you exile or just mill them out for the win condition?

Without a doubt cards like Codex Shredder and Pyxis of Pandemonium come to mind when its a direct mill to exile effect. However, depending how big your budget can be, you can run something simple like Muddle the Mixture to transmute for Rest in Peace to turn ordinary mill cards such as Glimpse the Unthinkable and Mind Grind and Rest in Peace will then exile them. The more expensive side of things you could play Enlightened Tutor to hit your Rest in Piece as well as Helm of Obedience. Helm of Obedience Rest in Peace is an infinite mill loop for one player at a time...

Starting with a typical U/B mill shell like say, Phenax, God of Deception and using staple cards from there to then encorperate that into an Esper shell.

As far as a Commander goes, something like Sharuum the Hegemon to grab back Altar of the Brood and Mindcrank would not be a terrible option as well. I can see Sydri, Galvanic Genius being a respectable option too! Needless to say, Esper has MANY MANY options to pull from in terms of combo, strategy and cardpool.

Sincerely hope this helped!

You'll want some more top deck manipulating. futuresight with things like Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell can have some nifty interactions. Additionally, Mystical Tutor with cards like Terminus are extremely powerful. Not sure how budget you're going but those are a few recommendations.

Ripperon on Korvold Eggs?

1 month ago

@BolasFucks This deck is a solid OK. The meta this deck is played in allows proxies and plays at between 7-8/10. I was testing to see how an effectively budgetless version would function. The answer is... not great, but not bad either.

Jund Eggs is a terrible idea as running without Second Sunrise , Faith's Reward , or any real stack interaction is kind of rough. I chose Korvold, Fae-Cursed King as a commander because I really like him in concept. I chose eggs as a "win-con" because I like the challenge of eggs in Jund. The deck functions.

Win Conditions require performing some variation of Eggs combo (replacing the aforementioned white cards with Scrap Mastery for a similar effect when possible) with Disciple of the Vault , Reckless Fireweaver , or Korvold, Fae-Cursed King out. If I'm able to go effectively infinite, I either ping the board down with the first two or draw my deck with my commander. With the big Dragon I can Chandra's Ignition for well above lethal. Beating face with him is a last resort, but a valuable one.

I run a variety of interaction:

To beat top-of-deck tutors, Codex Shredder . For meager stack interaction and protection of combo pieces, Guttural Response / Pyroblast / Red Elemental Blast / Veil of Summer .

Pia's Revolution does a surprisingly good job for pseudo recursion against low life targets, especially with how often artifacts go to the graveyard from play with this deck.

Noxious Revival hits key graveyard based combo pieces when we need it, or saves some of our own.

Nature's Claim , Assassin's Trophy , Chaos Warp , Beast Within , and Krosan Grip to deal with problem pieces.

I think that just about covers all the odd parts, the rest are either Eggs, ways to get key parts, or more common pieces of interaction.

Fluid1 yeah exactly; you can also mill them out with Dramatic Scepter and Codex Shredder .
