Collector Ouphe Discussion
1 week ago
But what i have been going back and forth on asking is, how is Trinisphere treating you? Does it feel like too much with the low mana curve or that it non-bo's with Plumb the Forbidden. It seems crazy good here and a great extra piece of stax with Collector Ouphe and Culling Ritual to slow down greedy opponents

It is worth pointing out that Deathrite Shaman is also banned in Legacy, where, for a while, it was called "the best Planeswalker in the format."
It is also the single most played creature in the Vintage by a large margin. 22.1% of Vintage decks run a full set of four copies of Deathrite Shaman. The next highest creature is Collector Ouphe, sitting at a mere 15.9% of decks, with an average of only 2.3 copies run. The only other creature in the top ten creatures in Vintage that gets a full set of four is Hollow One, which is not indicative of Hollow One's general applicability, just its usefulness in Hollow One decks.
Saying DRS would be fine in Modern ignores that it was enough of a problem to be banned in Legacy and is powerful enough to reign unquestionably supreme amongst creatures in Vintage.
It is not a problem in Pauper because I’m Pauper it will mostly be a 1/2 for 1 because there are no fetches. Fetches mean DRS is useful every single turn--it is a bird that can also burn your opponent repeatedly as long as you have ammunition.

Monomanamaniac: That's some Classic OG Yeva Draw-Grow stuff. It used to be in the list, but it's no longer needed and quite frankly it's terrible here. Sorcery speed, needs the mana dork to produce 5 mana, gets hit by Root Maze, Collector Ouphe, Null Rod, and now Thorn of Amethyst. We also have no way to tutor it.

Hello KyleWynne22! Thank you for the comment!
I know this is kind of a shitty answer, but I would say the cards you ask for are very situational and meta-dependent.
- Burgeoning - I will be completely honest, I do not really like this card because we only run 28 lands in the deck. The only reason I'd ever really consider it would be because it's a 1cmc enchantment. It would be a different story if we were running say, 36 lands in the deck as you're more likely to be able to make use of it.
- Karmic Justice - Another card I'm rather iffy on. The main reason I don't particularly care for it is because most of the removal in my meta is creature based, such as Swords to Plowshares, Deadly Rollick, Unsummon, or Rapid Hybridization. You might could get away with cutting Manglehorn for it, as all it does is really add redundancy to the artifact hate we already run, such as Stony Silence and Collector Ouphe.
- Smothering Tithe - The main reason I don't run this is we run a bunch of things that shut down the activated abilities of artifacts, such as Collector Ouphe, Stony Silence, Root Maze, and I'm even considering adding a Null Rod for even more redundancy. All of these do not allow the treasure tokens to be used. If you absolutely wanted to use Smothering Tithe, I'd say probably _maybe_ replace one of the aforementioned anti-artifact cards, but we generate enough mana with things like Sanctum Weaver or even Cryptolith Rite I feel as if Smothering Tithe is completely unnecessary.
- Sylvan Library - This is probably the easiest of the bunch you asked about for me to justify including. I'd cut Ground Seal, as really the only reason I run it is due to the fact it draws a card itself upon ETB. The graveyard hate is negligible, as we run Rest in Peace for that. Really only reason I don't run it is due to the fact I don't have one and can't be bothered to go track one down.
Hopefully this answered your questions! If you have any more, or need help building your list, feel free to ask!

With this sheer volume of creature spells, it might be worthwhile to use Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to tax your opponent's noncreature spells (and yours, but you run so few, it shouldn't matter much). You have a few artifacts, but Collector Ouphe is one of the most valuable hate bears you can run, and would give you a huge advantage over Esper decks. Losing out on your artifact mana isn't that big of a deal in comparison to slowing down an Esper or Grixis deck.

Thank you for the compliment. I have had a lot of fun altering the cards. Right now things are busy for me. I hope I can get back to altering more of them soon.
Yes if you were to make this list more competitive switch Counterspell for Mana Drain and Voidslime (although being able to counter an activated ability did win me a game one time) for Force of Will and cut a land to add Mana Crypt . Also if your meta is artifact heavy Collector Ouphe and Null Rod should find a place in this deck.
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is run because he is repeatable card draw, life gain, and landfall. Which fits everything the deck is trying to do. He replaced Coiling Oracle which I think is a strict upgrade. As newer cards get printed he is something I would consider cutting if the newer cards synergize with the deck more then he does.

Games went down hill hard to 2 turn 3 Blood Moon plays in consecutive games.

Only around half of your pieces benefit from the cost reduction of Umori; that being the case, it might be better to include the cat oven package, and/or Asmo and Cookbook. Endurance in the mainboard seems pretty medium at best, and Cat would give you more black cards to pitch to Grief . You might also consider Fury if you want to stick with Umori. There's also Bone Shards .
