TangoWithTojo on Derevi Bant EDH

1 year ago

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

Oh, duh. I found an older edition of Drain Power when I Googled it, and didn't really check any deeper.

Hope you're doing well! The changes seem to be doing good so far, with a few notes:

  1. I do miss the advantage of The Immortal Sun, considering slotting it back in and just risking playing it around my 3 'walkers.

  2. I feel like I'm not getting the maximum value out of Nezahal, but I'll continue to give him a shot.

What do you mean by expensive in regards to Drain Power ? Isn't it only $1?

Drain Power is both too expensive and too competitive for me. I hope you're enjoying the changes you've made Wicker.

...Although you could run Price of Glory with Drain Power or Fade Away although I'm not sure if you'd want to do that in multiplayer.

I agree that Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is a more eloquent design. This is probably why WOTC hasn't touched upon Drain Power since Pygmy Hippo .

If I go with the Damping Sphere ability, would you suggest any changes to cost or anything else?
