Klapp on Budget Mizzix Storm [~$100 Competitive EDH]

4 weeks ago

Hey Tyondai! Thankfully Commander Legends gave me a card that illustrates how reading your comment felt like to me: Mnemonic Deluge. This is how it must feel when you're doing your masters on a subject and suddenly get an email from the guy that wrote the first phd about it.

So here's how your comment impacted my build

Cards that got in:

Pieces of the Puzzle - I hadn't realized the graveyard fueling potential from this card for Underworld Breach and once I looked over at my own build and saw Careful Consideration it felt like a reasonable swap. It can be reiterated infinitely for the win, but maybe it's not worth the double pip.

Brain Freeze + Lotus Petal + Muddle the Mixture - Of course, should have gone in as soon as Underworld Breach got in the deck. I removed Sentinel Tower since Brain Freeze is basically the same win con and i was playing Thousand-Year Storm for the lols, it got out as well for Petal. For Muddle, Long-Term Plans really was slow and got cut, however it's the only other tutor that can fetch Underworld Breach so maybe that's enough justification for it to go back in one day.

Silundi Vision  Flip - I was on 33 lands, cut one for this MDFC.

Cards that didn't go in:

Grapeshot - I'm not running it. Admittedly, my build really only has two cards that can win the game. Brain Freeze and Stroke of Genius, this may be a problem and a point in favor of Grapeshot.

Pirate's Pillage - Oh man, the card that made you create the account. My build is not as red centered as yours, since I don't run Electrodominance or Grapeshot (yet). I definetly understand the value of having a red card that generates blue mana, oftenly the combo path gets to a point of "Ok, i have infinte red, now just need to turn it into infinte blue". But personally in my games because of the ammount of islands in the deck ther's usually at least one U available and there are a ton of cards that can work off of that such as Hidden Strings or the ever powerfull Frantic Search. However, I'll for sure pay attention during my games with the deck to see if I ever get to a combo point that only Pirate's Pillage could continue.

Electrodominance - My initial instinct is that having RR for this is rather difficult since the mana base doesn't generate that much red mana, and on top of that you need Mizzix out for the card to be worth it. Could you elaborate further? This is not a case where I can imagine how it would be like to have the card in the deck.

Cards that are in that I'm considering cutting:

Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time - The double pip on Dig really feels bad sometimes, but aside from that both are still on the list. However you've opened my eyes to the possibility that these cards may not be worth it and I really want to keep an eye out for their performance during my next games with the deck.

Rhystic Study - I agree with you that this card is generally slower than the rest of the deck and it doesn't help out much for comboing off. Probably take it out once I build another blue deck.

Enter the Infinite - Yes, it should go. I'll keep it in for now because it's funny.

Final thoughts: I haven't been able to get that many games in since the last batch of changes and I feel like that's a must to go forward, lots of things to keep an eye on. Adding the combo line with Underworld Breach makes the deck considerably stronger and it exacerbates that really this kind of deck is stronger in Grixis where you can reliably tutor Breach and don't really need Mizzix's discount for the combo lines. Aside from the cards above I really would like to add Jeska's Will and Valakut Awakening  Flip, if you'd like to check out my build and contribute some thoughts here's the link Mizziz of the Storm.

Also, have you ever looked at Recall as a way to possibly recur Underworld Breach if it gets countered?

Goblin_Guide on Better in the Dark

Kind of generic Yuriko tech, she works really well with cards that have alternate costs, like evoke (Mulldrifter) or delve (Dig Through Time, Temporal Trespass, Treasure Cruise, even Murderous Cut might be nice).

saj0219 on What are some under-rated or …

2 months ago

I think my vote for an underrated planeswalker is Narset Transcendent. Sure, she's not game-ending or nearly as powerful as some top tier planeswalkers, but casually getting to give Supreme Verdict rebound is... really fun (though my favorite used to be rebounding a delved Dig Through Time).

kraizor on Omnath, Locus of Creation feat. Landfall!

4 months ago

Update 17th of September:

1. Phylath, World Sculptor: I figured out, that at the time I can cast this guy, I have more than enough basic lands under my control, which means I can get enough tokens.
I replaced this for "Spoiler" Rampaging Baloths as this one gives me ETB tokens which I can pump as I need it.
2. Ancient GreenwardenTwo Landfall triggers in addition to playing lands out of your graveyard? 6 mana is huge, though worth the costs.
3. Tunneling Geopede: I honstely underestimated the power of this guy. One damage for each landfall trigger adds up and can close out games out of nowhere.
4. Moraug, Fury of Akoum. A powerhouse when it gets rolling. We are winning games with this, if unanswered.
5. Felidar Retreat: This card surprised me a lot in playtesting. Not only is it better than Zendikar's Roil but it is also more versatile at is gains us an overrun-esque effect.
6. Rude Awakening: I earlier removed this card from my deck, due to it feeling like a win more card, though I realized that I was too greedy and only wanted to use this card for its entwine costs.
After more testing it feels more like a better Mirari's Wake due to its versatility. More mana? No Problem. Trying to finish? No Problem. Trying to finish, but need just a bit more mana? No Problem.
1. Mirari's Wake: Exchanged for Rude Awakening as it is more versatile and technically give me the same benefits.
2. Coiling Oracle: Too often a swing and a miss. Not necessarily bad, but was not convinced from this one anymore.
3. Ghostly Flicker: Not sure about this one, as it is additional protection and can benefit mana if blinking Gaea's Cradle.
Will see how it pans out and if cutting it was a mistake. 4. Ramunap Excavator: Exchanged for Ancient Greenwarden. Also not sure about this one, as it ensures early land drops. Though, do not have problems with this early on most of the time.
5. Rampaging Baloths: Cutted for Phylath, World Sculptor as it benefits my deckstyle more.
6. Dig Through Time: Were not able to cast this card for its delve costs most of the time, as lands in the graveyard are often more valuable than in other decks.

1. Eternal Witness As is tradition, have to mention, that I want to play her.

Peoni on Bruvac Mill Brew

4 months ago

This is good stuff. You've pretty much got all the good mill you'd want in a deck like this. Here's a list of things I'd take out and put in and I'll explain after:

Take out - 1 Arcane Denial, 2 Nyx Lotus, 3 Sky Diamond, 4 Soul-Guide Lantern, 5 Tribute Mage, 6 Solemn Simulacrum, 7 Fraying Sanity, 8 Fleet Swallower or 9 Sphinx Mindbreaker, 10 Reality Shift, 11 Dig Through Time.

Add in - Extraplanar Lens, Muddle the Mixture, Crawlspace, Propaganda, Stroke of Genius, Blue Sun's Zenith, Sapphire Medallion, Thassa's Oracle, and Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter .

I'll try to be brief with all of this. For 1 I think Muddle is better for your deck, especially if you decide to add in Grindstone + Painter's Servant . 2 I don't think is a great source of ramp (It costs 4 mana to cast AND comes in tapped AND you aren't even guaranteed to get value out of it. It all depends on whether or not you're having a good game. You could play this turn 4, not get to use it til turn 5 since it's tapped, AND still maybe only get 1 or 2 mana out of it. Oh, and because of its high cost it's going to be a juicy target for removal. If it gets blown up you basically just skipped a turn. So much for being brief huh lol). 3 same as 2. Extraplanar Lens (not at all a budget buy I know) is killer in mono decks with snow lands, and you've already got the snows. Sapphire Medallion would just be better than 3. 4 you have enough graveyard hate. 5 you don't have impactful enough 2 cost artifacts to warrant this. Also Muddle. 6 you have enough ramp and don't need to mana fix. 7 I just feel is too targeted and might turn you into the table's bad guy if you weren't already. I'd just focus on the effects that apply to everyone or don't necessarily only apply to one player. 8 and 9 I don't feel like these are particularly necessary for winning but they're big and fun so I'd keep one and lose the other. 10 I just don't think you need. 11 some of your mills synergize with drawing and this doesn't draw. Good card, but I think for you Stroke of Genius and Blue Sun's Zenith will do you better. Additionally they can be combined with invite mana i.e. Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter to mill out your opponents or mill out yourself. Crawlspace and Propaganda I feel do too much for you to pass up. I know you already have one of them in your maybeboard, but I think you need more defensive cards in your 99 so you don't get tag teamed as soon as you drop some of your more threatening toys. You know as soon as you play something like Mindcrank or Mesmeric Orb or hell even your commander, the table probably isn't going to be cool with you doing that lol. You just want to make attacking you a pain and use counters to handle the rest. Finally, Thassa's Oracle is good for self mill.

Sorry if I'm a bit all over the place, but I wrote this little by little throughout the day in between doing different things so I'd have to keep coming back and remember where I was and yeah lol. Hope I helped though. It's a cool deck and I'd hope to at least give you some ideas to work with. :^)

0rc on Infinite combos with Emry (cEDH)

4 months ago

Since you’ll be filling the graveyard you may want to consider Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise for card draw. Both equate to powerful cantrips in the correct build.

It would be nice to have a backup plan in case someone disrupts your Mirran Spy + Walking Ballista combo ( Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Praetor's Grasp will ruin your day). Laboratory Maniac will work for backup upkeep win con, and is easily tutorable via Drift of Phantasms (but avoid Thassa's Oracle for this build).

Some bounce aside from Cyclonic Rift will stop you from losing to Pithing Needle-type effects or Linvala, Keeper of Silence as well as graveyard hate such as Rest in Peace or Grafdigger's Cage. Collector Ouphe and Kataki, War's Wage will be big problems without adequate removal.

I hope this helps.

SpammyV on Deathrite Shaman

Also, depending on what other cards are in the pool, cards that are major build-arounds or have to be banned or restricted in one format can be just okay in another.

Underworld Breach is legal in Standard, but hasn't really shown up in anything.

Without fetchlands, Pioneer hasn't had to ban Deathrite Shaman, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise.

Auriok Salvagers is legal in Modern but hasn't really made an impact (at least not recently) because it doesn't have the support cards it does in Legacy.

Karn, the Great Creator is pretty much just a wishboard card in every format but Vintage because of what else is in the Vintage card pool.
