SynergyBuild on After 500 games of testing …

1 month ago

I've still found it's not the most dominant of cards, of which from all of the testing I've found though more limited than 500 games it appears Trade Secrets is by far the most dominant card. When legal it pushed over 11% increase in winrate for decks capable in using it, absolutely astonishing. The issue with the data is the validity of the games and how competitive they were, due to issues of the cEDH format being much smaller at the time and much fewer games of cEDH recorded. Those I could find I averaged out to 11% increase however.

That's a sidenote. I'm surprised by the sheer difference betweent the two, as I personally have found while a wheel and breacher is the most explosive either card can accomplish, oppo agent a Doomsday or chaining oppo agents has lead to more consistent value.

I built an Oloro deck that was mono black discard, though not sure it that fits off-theme enough. Also, Oloro is popular, I just choose a theme not associated with him.

You could go super janky and go ball/sphere tribal. Anything with a ball in the art like Doomsday or Winter Orb.

Commanders like Zendru and Blim could also be good choices. You would be on theme with gift giving but your gifts could be just odd world enchantments like Concordant Crossroads or Price of Glory. They could be good just based on their range since you could gift anything.

Not sure if I hit any nails on the head but those are my first thoughts.

any_response on A Prosper Doomsday pile

1 month ago

Hello swarm intelligence, I am really drawn towards Prosper, Tome-Bound as a commander and would like to incorporate Doomsday as a wincon. I know of some piles that use one of the extra turn spells red has to offer, but i really dislike them, so i am looking for alternatives. My best idea up to know was to wait for a payoff to be on the battlefield and a cheap instant in hand to go for an instant-speed Worldgorger Dragon/Animate Dead-pile, using Tibalt's Trickery as the top card of the pile to exile with Prosper, but that can only be a plan C at best, as a lot of setup is required.

Do you have better ideas to offer? Best case would be of course instant speed and as mana-inexpensive as possible, but feel free to post everything that comes to mind, maybe we can work something out from there :)

If you want to hose 0 mana cards, Void Mirror is more versatile. It stops the likes of Fierce Guardianship or ramping from Sol Ring into a 2 mana rock. You can't play it turn 1 as easily as Chalice, so it's up to your opinion which to run.

As for Doomsday piles, I'd check out the deck The EDH Doomsday Primer. Doomsday is a difficult card to pull off. Gush is often used, but since you're a 3 color deck without many fetches and duals, I'm not sure how useful it would be. One thing to watch out for is a rogue Opposition Agent will literally kill you if you cast doomsday. You exile your whole library and lose all 5 tutored cards.

@Lanzo493 - I made some alterations last night. Vault is in, i picked up Mystical Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Farseek, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Necropotence. I'm not sure how my Doomsday stack will look, i will definitely need Wraith if i add it in. I want to be able to just win when i resolve it, and i don't really see a stack that will let me do that even with an activation of Tasigurs ability. Granted i only spent about a minute on it. Maybe a string of cantrips ending in Thassa's Oracle? Haha. Should have some mana up when i go for it. Mnemonic Betrayal looks interesting. I'll add that to my list of potential acquisitions. Thank you!

I would definitely use Lim-Dul's Vault. It’s great card filtering that also works well with filtering for Tasigur’s ability in a pinch.

I think Doomsday could work well. If you run it, then Street Wraith and Gitaxian Probe would be worth adding as well.

I think this deck could work well and even win at cEDH tables. It might not be the highest win rate, but you’ve got a chance. It’ll improve as you upgrade the deck. cEDH is not as blisteringly fast and impossibly out of reach as people think. Lots of times, it’s not too fast for a budget deck to handle.

Another budget wincon is Mnemonic Betrayal. It gets better the better your opponent’s decks are, too. It gets used in UB quite often.

@Caerwyn - I apologize, I didnt realize there were deck help forums for individual formats.

@Lanzo493 - Do you think Doomsday and Necropotence slot in here? Additional cards I pulled out of my collection with potential include: Pain Seer, Disciple of Deceit, Sphere of the Suns, Reason / Believe, Street Wraith, Raise Dead, Plunge into Darkness, Phantasmal Image, Siren Stormtamer, Commune with Nature, and Reclaim.
