Demonic Tutor Discussion

Grubbernaut on New Format: Supplemental?

2 weeks ago

I can safely say we're going to need a banlist.

UB Necro - Supplemental Format

Twin - Supplemental Format

Turns - Supplemental

Other archetypes that jumped out at me: Najeela/Derevi, stax, MLD, lands (dark depths/vesua/thespian's stage/crop rot), burn, delver, grixis control. Likely bans off the top of my head: Lotus Petal, Rite of Flame, Ancient Tomb, Tinker, Necropotence, Mystical Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, Demonic Tutor, Mox Diamond, Dark Ritual, Sol Ring, Mana Drain, probably more.

I'd be down for some of this degeneracy on spelltable if someone wants to play this week.

With Jodah, Demonic Tutor or Solve the Equation or Conflux + Seasons Past. Equation and Conflux are budget tutor options. The tutor keeps tutoring for Past, Past then recurs the tutor and Fraying as well as other cards you discarded because of Fraying.

I use this combo in my Jodah Dragons deck not with Fraying, but for Dragonstorm to assemble Dragon combos and Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient makes the mana.

@wallisface:You are correct in the sense that It requires Thoughtscour and Scheming Symmetry together to make Demonic Tutor. Or a mill engine such as Codex Shredder or Ashiok to prevent your opponent from gaining access to something important. But it also gives you a chance to play mind games. Should I put that card on top or am I going to get thoughtscoured again? I suspect that once the mill engine starts, the opponent will just start tutoring things they don’t need in order to filter the deck. I’m going to have to actually try it out before I swap Symmetry for Profane Tutor

K1ngMars on Help optimizing my Wilhelt Precon

I would definitely suggest you to include the recently printed Poppet Factory, as it allows Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver to generate a zombie every time you sacrifice a zombie, due to the fact that the Decayed ability gets overwritten. Besides, Gravecrawler too allows for infinite loops with Phyrexian Altar and a permanent dealing damage triggered by creature deaths, like Bastion of Remembrance.

To support the combo route, which could definitely help in keeping up your game, I would also suggest to add some tutors, to help you smooth out your hand and always find the right cards at the right time. Such cards could range from Lim-Dul's Vault to Scheming Symmetry or Demonic Tutor, mainly depending on your budget. Remember, tutors don't necessarily need to be 60 bucks to be good. They are always good.

Apart from that though, another proactive way to stop you opponents into their tracks is to simply use counterspells. Dimir offers some of the best control magic available, amongst which I'll recall: Counterspell, Countersquall, Arcane Denial, Wash Away, Disdainful Stroke... The choices are endless and should be suited to what are the main threats you wish to answer in your playgroup. Overall, 5 counterspells should be enough to step up your game a bit in terms of interaction, without making your deck a control-focused spellslinger deck.

As a last note, I'll link you the deck of one of my friends, which I've helped with in upgrading. It's a comboless Wilhelt with quite a strong presnece in games, hopefully it may be of some inspiration to you.

For EDH specifically, 2 mana for artifact ramp is strong for following reasons:
can be cast off turn 1 mana positive mana rocks (Sol Ring etc.)
0 mana rocks (Mana Crypt)
multi mana lands (Gemstone Caverns and Ancient Tomb)
and other general fast mana spells (Dark Ritual / Simian Spirit Guide).

Also inclusionary is their preferred synergy with slower turn 1 ramp (Birds of Paradise/Deathrite Shaman) - both Arcane Signet and Gruul Signet result in (potential for) 2 extra mana to spend, whereas 3 mana only results in 1 extra mana to spend. This assumes turn 1 land/mana and turn 2 mana/spell. This can easily result in a Night's Whisper, Demonic Tutor, or Diabolic Intent (and any other 2 cmc non-black card I cannot recall), 2 lands, and 2 mana spells, all by turn 2.

multimedia on Olivia, Crimson Bride Commander

Hey, you're welcome. Some more advice is streamline the creatures, reduce down to the best creatures you want to reanimate with Olivia and the best support to make that happen. Consider a toolbox concept with tutors and more looting? Streamlining will help to cut the redundancy that you don't need from creatures. By cutting many high CMC creatures for lower CMC reanimation enablers this also reduces the mana curve which is very high right now at 4.5.

The idea is the enablers help to find the better high CMC creatures you want to reanimate with Olivia/get them into your graveyard. Since the enablers are less mana then you can realistically cast them, hopefully before you cast Olivia. By reducing the mana curve then you could cut some lands: 1x Swamp and 1x Mountain.


Example of streamline current creature base (cuts number of creatures in half):

  • Master of Cruelties
  • Port Razer
  • Rune-Scarred Demon
  • Burning-Rune Demon
  • Rakdos the Defiler
  • Dragon Mage
  • Archon of Cruelty
  • Balefire Dragon
  • Sepulchral Primordial
  • Meteor Golem
  • Noxious Gearhulk
  • Flayer of the Hatebound

The other creature spots would be for support.

  • Yahenni, Undying Partisan
  • Chainer, Nightmare Adept
  • Solemn Simulacrum
  • Falkenrath Aristocrat
  • Gravebreaker Lamia

Rakdos the Defiler and Archon of Cruelty are better than the other high CMC creatures here who can make opponents sac permanents/creature. Dragon Mage is better than the other high CMC creatures here who draw cards. Sepulchral Primordial makes all the other creatures who reanimate and gain control of opponent creatures redundant. Meteor Golem and Noxious Gearhulk are better than the other creatures who can destroy a creature and Noxious gains life. Balefire Dragon is better than other creatures who do damage to opponent creatures.


With a higher budget these are some changes to consider for more help to setup Olivia:

These changes are cutting some high CMC creatures to add tutors and/or more looting. I offer more advice in another comment if you're interested. Would you like me to continue?
