Eligeth, Crossroads Augur

Legendary Creature — Sphinx


If you would scry a number of cards, draw that many cards instead.

Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

Sweet deck!!!
Any thoughts about Eligeth, Crossroads Augur? Kinda tough to fit in a six drop but its a nice effect for the deck...

With all the scrying available, Eligeth, Crossroads Augur seems like it would be a solid inclusion. Turn all the scry into draw.

Also, per the forum rules, you need to leave a comment on Massacar's last posted list.

Holy balls that's a lot of previewed cards, none of which I've ever seen before.

Mono-colored character commanders + Backgrounds is a good way of creating a new set of Partners without having to worry about synergy around the original ones. In the 99, the backgrounds seem to make pretty good pseudo-Auras for Voltron too.

I liked The Monarch so I expect to like The Initiative as well. The Undercity isn't super exciting (why single target burn and a glass cannon token for an EDH-specific set?) but the final room gives creature beatdown some love at least. I'm hoping that mono-white will receive some strong initiative cards, seeing as it's a color with both good evasive creatures and defense which places it in a good position to both take and keep the intitiative. I also hope there's some better dungeon reward cards this time around.

Bane's Invoker: I get that they wanted to make a mono-colored cycle that included all of the Dead Three, and that Bane is Lawful Evil, but mono-white still feels weird, especially when the flavor text uses the epiteth "The Lord of Darkness".

Abdel: Meh. Flash would have been cool here, especially at that cost.

Lulu: Seeing as wholesome and cute as she's supposed to be, it feels weird that she fits well at the helm of an Aristocrats deck. That smile ain't right either.

Commander Liara Portyr: Mmmm yes, I like this, even if she's slightly expensive. Beatdown support and boros card advantage? And it's impulsive draw where the risk of whiffing is greatly mitigated by built-in ramp, greatly ressembling Prosper, Tome-Bound while still doing it's own thing? Sorry, but allow me to indulge in a "Yasssss queen".

Fang Dragon: While it's at a humble common rarity, I could see this fitting in otherwise high-MV Dragon tribal decks for the decent Adventure part

Elminister: No surprise there. The -3 doesn't seem super appropriate for EDH but w/e, spellslinger scrying tribal sounds neat. Obviously, inspiration can be found in azorius Eligeth, Crossroads Augur decks

Raphael: Still waiting for a proper Demon tribal commander, a simple anthem with an evergreen keyword isn't going to cut it. Less personality than Zurzoth, Chaos Rider too

Myrkul: Hahah persist One with the Stars? That's so weird, I love it. You can tap out your dorks to cast a wrath, then tap their enchantment-copies to keep going!

Mazzy: Sigh, feels like the same mistake as Tiana, Ship's Caretaker; if Mazzy gets hit by a wrath, she's not going to be able to see the Auras fall off. Even if she could, Aura card's reliance on creatures is problematic, since you'll probably find yourself in situations where you first have to spend some mana on casting/creating a creature, then using whatever's left to save just some of the exiled Auras.

Battle Angels: Would it have been too good if it just said "more than you"?

Nautiloid Ship: neat that Vehicles are getting more EDH support, though reliance on mill feels a bit awkward

Tasha: Just one spell per "ultimate" activation! Cheecky synergy with her Laughter. Demon tokens kinda feels like flavor filler and I feel like she could cost one less seeing as she's quite slow and vulnerable, but w/e, still neat

Firkraag: I appreciate a good goader, but the Dragon tribal feels pretty incidental. Works with non-goad forced attacking for both your opponents' creatures (Goblin Spymaster) and your own (Hellraiser Goblin). (No Angel's Trumpet synergy tho.)

Cap' Ng...N'gh...whatever...: Feels like it'll be much more consistent than the often scarily big Umbris, Fear Manifest for Horror tribal

Nalia: Doesn't feel super white-black and go-wide beatdown isn't the best for EDH, but it's nice that party is getting some flavor-approprate love

Yes, you will draw two cards when activating the ability granted by Oracle's Insight. The Scry 1 will be replaced by Eligeth, Crossroads Augur's ability with Draw a card, in addition to the card you draw normally as part of the aura's ability.

I have Eligeth, Crossroads Augur as my Commander. I enchant a creature with Oracle's Insight. When I tap the creature, do I first draw a card because of Eligeth, Crossroads Augur and then draw another card because of Oracle's Insight?

Necrosis24 on DePietro and Channel?

10 months ago

This has made me realize I’ve been reading Ghost of Ramirez DePietro wrong this entire time. I thought his trigger was tied to the player that was dealt damage.

Well anyways my top pick for a partner would be Tormod, the Desecrator for all the graveyard shenanigans (i.e Living Death) and discard value.

Some high synergy cards would be:

Looking at channel tho there seems to be a higher density in temur so you would have access to better ramp and can do wheel/card draw affects. So perhaps Tana, the Bloodsower with:

  • Rielle, the Everwise

  • Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip
  • The Locust God + Wheels
  • Conspiracy Theorist
  • Mizzix's Mastery + Lier, Disciple of the Drowned
  • Glint-Horn Buccaneer
  • Surly Badgersaur
  • Otherwise you can go for purate tribal in izzet with Breeches, Brazen Plunderer or monoblue with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator

    MillerBrewing on Ardenn-Esior Caw Blade [Pauper EDH] "Contest Deck"

    1 year ago

    I'm new to PDH, and I'm working on my first deck, so I don't know if I have much to contribute at the moment. Also, I'm not really tweaking this deck, but instead creating a new deck with a different partner for Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist.

    I actually came to Ardenn by mistake. I read somewhere that scry was one of the most powerful things that can be done in pauper, and I suspect that is true. I found Siani, Eye of the Storm and Eligeth, Crossroads Augur from another site, not realizing that Eligeth has always been printed as a rare, and so illegal for PDH. But before I dumped the brew, I looked around for a new partner for Siani, and came up with Ardenn.

    Siani and Ardenn have never been combined before, as far as I can tell. But they seem to have some synergies. Both contribute enchantments. For instance, I'm thinking about using Ardenn to move a blue enchanment from a creature to a commander. Both colors contribute flyers that Siani can use. White looks to contribute some blue combos. So I didn't set out to build an Azorius deck, but that's where I am.
