TriusMalarky on ETG Graveyard shuffling?

1 week ago

Gaea's Blessing is the best alternative to Eldrazi. Eldrazi are good due to the fact that they basically just win if you can play them.

Also, why get rid of Annihilator? It might be hated by some people due to the 'feel bad' of the effect.... but when are you really going to be casting Kozzy? And also, if your playgroup hates on annihiliator... then they don't know how to deal with it. And if a simple ability taped to massive creatures with huge casting costs is too much for them to deal with, they sorta suck. They could probably run a few more Doom Blade effects.... but that's my opinion.

Neat idea. I’d recommend including some countermagic and/or removal; stuff like Remand, Miscast or Doom Blade/Cast Down. You’re going to want to protect your threats, and they will help flip Thing in the Ice  Flip as a bonus.

When it comes to EDH removal, you're looking at Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile for the absolute best. A 3/3 doesn't often matter much. Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push are both reasonable in faster metas i.e. cEDH as a lot of the things you care about are cheaper anyways, but for black you're going to be using Doom Blade effects for the most part. Those are fine, you just don't want as many.

TriusMalarky on Underrated EDH Cards

1 month ago

I feel like people discount countermagic sometimes. Literally every blue deck should run Negate, Disdainful Stroke and probably Counterspell. But that might just be my low data count.

Efficient removal is also really underrun. Terminate, Doom Blade and more should find a lot of homes, but really don't.

However, if you're looking for real power, Scheming Symmetry is SO good. In any mill deck it's the best tutor in the game. With some way to draw a card immediately, it makes it really easy to combo off. Also, there's often somebody who's behind... give them the tutor.

Simic Charm is anti-removal and can stop someone from winning. Great 2-use utility.

Very nice. I’d put more removal in the sideboard though. Maybe some Dismember or Doom Blade, Cast Down, Fatal Push etc.

First of all: thanks for your input! To be honest.. I don't like Duress in the mainboard (at least not in my meta), but Harsh Scrutiny performed quite well in my Lantern Control-deck. Maybe I could cut Duress and replace it with 2 more copies of Harsh Scrutiny or even Doom Blade.

With the Reprint, Cast Down is now available for pauper and could replace Doom Blade. The non-legendary clause doesnt matter in Pauper, so you can easily hit black targets, too.

How about Opt, Brainstorm, Ponder or Preordain for the filter? You need more 1 one drops, to get into game fast.

GoblinElectromancer on Clerics WIP

Cool idea playing cleric tribal!

First off: It's probably best not to be playing a bunch of 1 ofs or 2 ofs. If a card is good play 4 of it and the deck consistency will improve significantly.

There are a lot of new cleric cards spoiled in Zendikar rising you might like: Orah, Skyclave Hierophant, Cleric of Life's Bond, Drana, the Last Bloodchief, and Angel of Destiny.

I would cut cards like Pacifism and Forced Worship and replace them with removal like Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Doom Blade, Heartless Act, etc.

Wraths also seem good such as Damnation and Wrath of God

Good Luck!
