Confusion in the Ranks Discussion

Hi Milliam_Shakespeare !

That's cool to see other players deck build zedruu deck, our favorite goat. Keep on this way ! I'm not a big fan of Bad Gift Zedruu but it's a kind of game plan that work. For this build, I would advice you to run Confusion in the Ranks in your deck, which is a good exchange card that will avoid you to spend mana or cards like Donate or Harmless Offering and put some spice in the game.

I don't think Thought Lash is a good card. For scale, it take 13 turns to mill 90 cards, and 10 turns to mill 60 cards. Quite long to kill your opponent.

Also, if you have 15$ to spend, Cyclonic Rift is an awesome card to get. It's not a very big synergy with the spirit of your deck, but it can definitely turn the situation around

Best of luck to you, and spread your gifts with love

TheSlowestBro on I got a bad feeling about this..

Hello! Sorry for the late reply, had some issue with my service provider.

So let's see, I think I've considered most of these already, they are all really cool ideas, the main issue is making deckspace for them. Do you see anything that sticks out to you as potential cuts? Aftershock has generally been really good, people don't see it coming and being able to hit a broken land if needed is really powerful.

  1. Sensei's Divining Top : the main issue here is $$, I actually bought a copy not too long ago, but I put into my Titania, Protector of Argoth deck as it's just way too good there to go anywhere else. Feel free to check it out, The Entmoot if you have any interest. When I feel I can justify buying another copy, of course I will highly consider it for this deck.

  2. Ignite the Future : THIS is interesting and I had not considered it. Nice little synergy you pointed out there with Top as well. Great tip! I'll definitely give it a try when I get the chance.

  3. Light Up the Stage : I like it, don't get me wrong, but do I like it more than a recurrent value generator like Treasure Map  Flip or Mimic Vat ? I don't think so.. Has it performed for you?

  4. Jeska's Will : You're right, this should probably have a slot. Again, what to cut, if I shave anymore from the goblin package I don't think it's worth running them anymore.

  5. Zealous Conscripts : Precisely not in here because it combos with Kiki a bit too easily! I'm just not a huge fan of infinite combos in EDH that are too easy to pull off, and I have so many ways to search for Kiki.

  6. Dockside Extortionist : You're right, this guy would be totally nuts, but it comes down to $$ and I'm kiiinda hoping on a reprint before I splurge, we'll see how long my patience lasts heheh.

  7. Homeward Path : Absolutely if I find a slot for the Humble Defector this would be so cool. Again, slots. But perhaps I should prioritize the defector more than I currently am, haven't really tried it out, should try to proxy it up, but you know, not much going on where I live unfortunately on the gaming side because of covid :/

  8. Outpost Siege : it's cool and I definitely considered it, but I think there are other value/ping options that are far better, though the utility of being able to choose is nice ofc. I think if I do find I need another ping-style card this will be the go-to.

Thanks for your thoughts and such a in-depth comment on my deck. Really useful and appreciated!

Edit: I was gonna edit my own comment but deleted your original one by mistake! Ooops! Also I did not realize that Confusion in the Ranks triggers in that matter and neither has anyone in my group ever noticed hahah! But I think this just makes the card even more interesting, so thank you for pointing it out.
