Constant Mists Discussion
2 weeks ago
I don't play any eldrazi myself, but their power is undeniable in ramp strategies. If you'd like some finishers that aren't those colourless imbeciles:
Genesis Wave floods the board and fills the bin.
Genesis Hydra is a big smacko that comes with a friend.
Polukranos, World Eater is seldomly cast and deadly all by itself.
Drakuseth, Maw of Flame is slow but offers much efficacy.
Pathbreaker Ibex is the long way to say "Win the game."
6.Woodfall Primus is always a pain for the opponents.
- And Etali, Primal Storm grants card advantage, all whiles being awesome in its own right.
If I have a deck full of big idiots here if you want some spicy choices.
That shall be all from me! Awesome deck and I look forward to the changes. :D

There was a time that I was at 13 life. I had 3 cards in hand, and made myself the target of the table previously, and could win on my following turn. A friend, who I will call Sara just got a Craterhoof Behemoth AND Triumph of the Hordes out, on their turn, with 8ish creatures out, easily able to kill the table. This was the turn before mine, and I had basically no political power. A Korvold deck had the turn after mine, and seemed to be gripping his hand with all of the cards held together.
I'll call the Korvold player James. James told Sara to not swing at him this turn, or else he'd have to deal with her. She was initially like idc, I might give you another turn, because they had teamed up a bit before, and were on good terms. Assumedly he was just asking for an extra turn, however I knew Constant Mists was a popular card in those decks. I had to judge whether to play with the idea of pretending I had an answer and bluffing, or to attempt to force his possibility of having mists.
I decided I was gonna get tricky. Now I stated I can't win, Sara had me pinned, and shook hands. Then I told James I can't win, but because he was going to get another turn, I might as well make sure he wins, and I tap some mana to cast Swords to Plowshares on Sara's Phyrexian Revoker, which had named Squandered Resources. Now I had what I wanted. Just a few turns prior James said that Revoker stopped him from winning, and I knew there was a chance of him having a chance at winning, but this was a wheel and a few turns since, so I assumed he at least needed his turn. Additionally he cast a Splendid Resources since then, so I assumed he used it up.
As this was pre-combat, I had to force Sara to attempt to kill James and have James also have a fog, but this was my only chance.
Sara - I think you need to die now James.
James - No we had a deal!
Sara - No we didn't I said I might spare you a turn. Now you gotta go.
James - Trust me if you swing I will stop you.
Me - Wait you can stop over 100 infect? You have like 8 toughness, how much removal do you have?
Sara - Yeah I'm not scared, nice bluff (the table starts giggling which turns into laughter at James)
James - Screw it! Swing out, watch it.
And then, it happens, Constant Mists.
I got there, that swords to plowshares saved me from 100 trampling damage. I won the game next turn, with a fun little combo that involves Opalescence and Parallax Wave. It was a sweet game, and my favorite play to date.
What are your favorite plays? Any you made? Any deals? Any you've heard about or seen?

With omnath and so many basic lands, you should definitely give Boundless Realms a try. Some people like it, and some don’t. Play it a few times and see what you think :). Other cards on your maybe list imo are dependent on meta (Constant Mists is strong against aggro) or playstyle (for example, in my Mina and Denn primer I talk about why I dislike Nissa, Vital Force because of my playstyle with that deck). So for those cards it’s really up to your own tastes and opponents if you should run them I think.

Syphon Mind and Midnight Clock are far better in multiplayer but not particularly "abusive". Ward of Bones and Land Equilibrium can be crazy harsh in a big game vs a small one and they tend to feel a bit more "abusive". Edric, Spymaster of Trest also really shoots up in power level with multiple opponents. Unwinding Clock is basically a colorless Seedborn Muse, its super busted. Disrupt Decorum is a hell of a party that doesn't even work in 1v1. A known Constant Mists can do wonders in hand, as nobody will want to waste an attack on you. Arachnogenesis and Comeuppance are similar, if they are suspected responses to attacks you may start being left alone in the game until someone has a counterspell for you. Dragon Broodmother, and a few other cards trigger token making on each player's turn, maybe not super abusive but still much better in multi than in a 1v1 game. Mind's Eye can be quite strong as well, especially with Smothering Tithe!!

I have made a large update to my binder found here. Binder.
I'm mostly looking to complete my Chulane EDH deck and prioritizing trades for the following: Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, Exploration, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, Ramunap Excavator, Roil Elemental, Sylvan Safekeeper, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Titania, Protector of Argoth, Zuran Orb, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Strip Mine, Constant Mists
If you have one of these but don't see anything you need. Let me know, If it's a high priority I may pay cash for it.

I've added some cards I'm testing to the maybeboard.
Our sweepers are not doing too much for us as is. We have no need to sweep the board to clear the way since our plan is to deal damage with creatures that can't be blocked, so what we would use sweepers for in this deck is to not be beat up too much - and this we can do much more efficiently with fog effects. The question is what fog effects are good enough to make the cut. Tangle effectively stops two combats from one player, but does nothing else. Constant Mists also does nothing other than fog, but the buyback is very powerful. Obscuring Haze is free but one use. Blinding Fog also gives hexproof to all our stuff, but is more expensive to cast. AEtherize and Arachnogenesis are both fogs that sort of sweep at instant speed. Cyclonic Rift may get a spot in the deck as a better sweeper, since it is instant speed and does work even without overload.
I'm also messing around with some more protection spells. I think we have plenty as is, but casting a wider net with Simic Charm, Heroic Intervention or Blinding Fog may be good (Lazotep Plating may also be an option). Simic Charm also lets us bounce Ukkima cheaply which we want more of, or just pump her power.

So I have few suggestions while staying on your budget theme and the high risk idea.
The most expensive of my three recommendations is a $20 card called Concordant Crossroads. This card is exactly that, high risk high rewards as all of your creatures start doing things right away and will potentially throw that hasty Ghalta boy into the fray much sooner.
If you find things problematic in the form of your creatures always being killed running something like Fecundity might be fun! It gives you another risky form of card draw as it potentially gives your opponents that option too.
I think one of my favorite green cards sitting at $2 dollars might be just right for you! Recycle offers lots of benefits at the cost of going down to two cards every turn. Every card you play, including lands, draws you a card. Suddenly cards like Elvish Piper with a Seedborn Muse quite fun.
I would not cut the Taunting Elf like you previously mentioned. With the amount of damage you commander does that would be crazy!
Since you mentioned your meta is "swarming" with flyers, why don't you try replacing a single flying removal or wipe with Sandwurm Convergence? This will take care of the problem a little longer unless you experience you are with a play group that has a lot of targeted removal and board wipes for enchantments. Another one is Katabatic Winds. Just a couple ideas for more funny flying hate that can be more permanent.
Maybe if you like to swing a lot, Constant Mists is always a good one to throw into the mix. Also your mention of Wood Elves would be a far better replacement in the deck for Sylvan Awakening. I know those two are not comparable, you might consider changing those two.
