Debt to the Deathless Discussion

Mcat1999 on MTGO when did casual edh …

What I really dislike is when someone fervently insults you and your build when they might have zero idea as to why it's designed that way.

  • "Oh God, you're playing 16 sources of ramp?? Dude Golgari Locket is absolute shit! It's garbage you fucking moron! If you wanna get good you need to cut all this crap out!"

Okay, first of all, go fuck yourself. Secondly, I'm in 3 colors with high-cost cards. I want my mana to be well beyond efficient. That means plenty of 1-2-3 drop ramps. And yeah maybe Hour of Promise is shit in most decks but when I can tutor out a Gaea's Cradle and a Serra's Sanctum and generate tons of mana, or a Field of the Dead and a Prismatic Vista and land two 2/2 Zombois, crack Vista and fetch a basic and land a third 2/2 and have all doubled to 6x 2/2s thanks to my Anointed Procession followed by the Second Harvest I've got in hand, well now I have 18x 2/2s in play. (3 doubled to 6. Then 6 more doubled to 12. 6 + 12 is 18). Oh. And now that I have tons of mana thanks to that Turn 3 Cryptolith Rite , I'mma go and dump a haymaker on your dumb ass with an X=23 Debt to the Deathless next turn that I drew by cracking that Golgari Locket you complained so much about.


Just because a deck isn't designed the way YOU would build it, doesn't mean it's shit.

And I can not stand people being negative assholes over it. Like. Just shut up and draw so I can win next turn.

Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless are classic life drain cards.

Just a few card suggestions to look into:

Debt to the Deathless - Pretty solid finisher when you have the mana.

Kambal, Consul of Allocation - Huge deterrent against spellcasting decks. As you saw from last night, cards like Rule of Law and Deafening Silence can be pretty brutal.

Blind Obedience - I like it for the stax effect, but extort just gets better the more players you're up against.

Pristine Talisman - Life gain and ramp!

Witch of the Moors - This is definitely more of a me card, but I hate people and their creatures. This card supports that.

In case you needed more cards like Soul Warden - Soul's Attendant , Auriok Champion , Suture Priest .

Do you also hit any draw issues? If you do, there might be some cards that draw for life like Phyrexian Arena .

A few off the top of my head: Rain of Gore, Debt to the Deathless, Blowfly Infestation, and last BUT NOT LEAST Diabolic Machine.

It's your boy Jason.

Here's a bunch of cards that should be less than $1 that I think could be possible additions. Feel free to ignore me. Also this is Zach: Zjadler and this is Stephen: icefrigi if you want to check out their decks.

Lifegain Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Sanguine Sacrament

Lifegain Pay Off Ajani's Pridemate, Griffin Aerie

TheGiftedBard on Picking the right precon

4 months ago

Hi?!

I’m fairly new to the game and new to edh, my apologizes if I’m not in the right section.

I’m currently looking at the precons and there’s a few I’d like to try but right now I think that getting just one is probably smarter in case I end up not liking the format.

In all the precon I looked at, these are the one that my lgs still have. I’m gonna list them one by one with a quick reason why I’m interested by them.

Commander - Devour for Power - The Mimeoplasm: I do like the idea of dumping stuff in my graveyard to basically make my commander into whatever I need for a particular situation, I recently bought a small collection with a Sheoldred, Whispering One, Mortivore, Golgari Grave-Troll, Lhurgoyf and Hermit Druid.

Commander - Political Puppet - Zedruu the Greathearted: The idea of casting curses on my opponents and giving them creatures to screw them over seems terribly funny and diabolical. Switching my Steel Golem for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre would be a win for me even if I end up losing the game.

Commander 2015 - Call the Spirits - Daxos the Returned: Building an enchantment deck seemed fun and I also have cards like Sorin Markov with his -3 and cards line Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate in my collection for alternative way of winning the game.

Commander 2015 - Seize Control - Mizzix of the Izmagnus: It’s probably not the main goal of the deck but casting instant and sorcery with Talrand, Sky Summoner or Murmuring Mystic and having Crackling Drake on the board to swoop in with a bunch of flying drakes and birds on the board made me laugh.

Commander 2015 - Swell the Host - Ezuri, Claw of Progress: Ezuri just looked so badass and flooding the bord with a bunch of 2 and 1 power creatures and adding stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension or using Triumph of the Hordes or even buffing them up with Ezuri + some proliferate triggers looked like sometimes that could be very scary for the table.

Sorry for the long post but There’s so many choices that I got lost and confused on what could be better a first deck.

Thanks for the help.

I don't know if Ashnod's Altar is your best bet for additional ramp. I don't know if you are creating token at enough of a pace to make it worth it and I don't see much of another benefit to sacking your stuff. I still think Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers would be the best answer, but they sure aren't budget includes. On a budget, Cabal Stronghold can do nice work in 2 color or under decks in black. Another sometimes overlooked option is Black Market. Perhaps Ashnod's Altar was from a desire to sac what you have onboard to dump into your Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless. Knowing the liklihood you have a useful enough board state in any given game, I think you can probably find more utility out there as Ashnod's Altar will be dead in your hand or on board too often.

StopShot on What is the best card …

I like coming up with infinite combos and sometimes I wind up with an infinite combo that makes endless colorless mana. I want to know what card is best for sinking all that mana into? While I'm aware that I can use a card like Gemstone Array to make infinite colored mana or I could use a card like Staff of Domination to draw multiple cards, I instead want one card along with my infinite colorless mana and limited color mana to close out the game by doing any of the following:

-

-Dealing infinite damage to all opponents.

-Causing infinite life loss to all opponents.

-Creating infinite creature tokens with haste.

-Forcing all opponents to draw out their decks.

-Exiling all opponents' libraries.

-Forcing all opponents into a "lose the game" condition.

-Meeting a "win the game" condition.

-

I don't consider traditional mill to be a viable way to consistently win the game. Creating infinite tokens without haste I also view as not consistent enough as it gives each opponent the chance to react. Furthermore, infinite life gain isn't viable as commander damage exists.

Of course, without a doubt, Walking Ballista is the clear favorite solution to win the game being able to fit in any deck given its colorless color identity. That being said, I made this thread wanting to know what secondary back-ups would be an apt replacement for Walking Ballista if by some chance it is countered or exiled.

Here are some cards I came up with that work, but I'd like to know from others if I missed any that could do better than these: Aurelia's Fury,, Bloodrite Invoker,, Cogwork Assembler,, Comet Storm,, Conflagrate,, Cut / Ribbons,, Debt to the Deathless,, Dimensional Infiltrator,, Essence Depleter,, Exsanguinate,, Fanning the Flames,, Fireball,, Firecat Blitz,, Goblin Cannon,, Goblin Festival,, Helix Pinnacle,, Oona, Queen of the Fae,, Rolling Thunder,, Tempt with Vengeance,, Torment of Hailfire and Valakut Invoker.

I didn't include any cards that could possibly turn the game into a draw, but I'm still looking for more cards that suit the criteria I've put out.
