Elixir of Immortality Discussion

Hikarumei on Faeries Tribal

2 days ago

so the way I see it you're actually quite close (33 basic lands means 25 basic lands brings you up to 82)

Sooooo creatures

  • Zephyr Sprite (basic 1 drop flyer, but a 1 drop flyer is good on its own)
  • Wydwen, the Biting Gale (3/3 flyer with an ability that gives you bounce to save itself or add faerie casts)
  • Wasp Lancer (3 mana faerie flyer, that's it)
  • Vendilion Clique (ok, pricey but a good way to say no to an incoming problem)
  • Thieving Sprite (another way to say no to an incoming threat)
  • Silkbind Faerie (untap effects are very exploitable, although often rare)
  • Silkbind Faerie (easy to be a 3/3 flying vigilance for 3)
  • Ringskipper (this one is kinda mostly filler but could be obnoxious to get rid of)
  • Quickling (ok I think this is a diamond in the rough, 2 mana, get a body AND save a faerie from impending doom)
  • Oona's Gatewarden (i know defender BUT WITHER IS SUCH A GOOD MECHANIC)
  • Nightveil Sprite (2 mana 1/2 flyer that lets you look at the top card of your library, with the option to toss)
  • Mistbind Clique (forcing your opponent into an all out play can create quite the opening, timing it before the end of a phase limits their options on what they can do with all that mana)
  • Metropolis Sprite (With anthems that ability could be nasty, especially since early game flyers are often going unblocked)
  • Knacksaw Clique (I hate myself for suggesting this monster of a card but even if you aren't stealing their cards, your permanently removing them and that's just nasty)
  • Faerie Vandal (drawing 2 cards in a turn isnt hard in blue, so in many cases it will get +1/+1 every turn)
  • Faerie Mechanist (counts as an artifact AND sifts for more)
  • Fae of Wishes (that adventure lets you pull solutions out of thin air)
  • Eye Collector (1/1 with a decent ability)
  • Brazen Borrower (again not budget but another great adventure)
  • Faerie Guidemother (1 drop white with an ok adventure option)
  • Phyrexian Metamorph (clone that can hit artifacts always good, especially in EDH)

Other Stuff

My sanity is lasping soooooo…. Also might want to think of artifact / enchantment recovery cards and good ol’ Elixir of Immortality

Profet93 on Baral Your Eyes Out

2 days ago


Into the Story - Can suck early game and grave hate or shuffling wheels exacerbate this. My version of baral plays lots of time spiral effects. But this does intrigue me

Mindbreak Trap / Summary Dismissal - Is this to counter the uncounterable?

Vex - We can do better

Estrid's Invocation - Why?

Marit Lage's Slumber - Too slow and unimpactful

Bond of Insight - Better recursion, fuels graveyard decks, but is interesting

Mass Manipulation - Too expensive

Plea for Power - I have a love hate relationship with this card. But it's always hurt me more than it's helped.

Murmuring Mystic - Worse talrand is not needed

Elixir of Immortality - No purpose?


Let me know if you want some ideas for stuff to add

CrimsonChaos on Korvold, the hangry kang

3 days ago

Another fantastic combo to take advantage of Korvold's abilities is by adding in Animation Module in conjunction with Korvold and Ashnod's Altar . Just have an extra thing to sac, and as soon as you slap that +1/+1 counter on Korvold you can pay one generic mana to get a servo, which you can then sac with the altar and repeat the process. Boom, you can now get a ton of mana, card draw, and buff counters on your commander as long as you're careful not to draw yourself out. You can even add in an Elixir of Immortality to help perpetuate things, if you'd like.

Gilbobaggins on Mill deck

I would put something to exile opponents graveyard.. I play a deck that runs 4 Elixir of Immortality and Day's Undoing . Leyline of the Void and Bojuka Bog will help. I play Bojuka Bog as free exile graveyard spell. Definitely get either Extirpate or Surgical Extraction

Darth_Savage on Floop the Pig

I like the addition of Torch Courier, in the Ilharg shell. I'm not so sure about Leyline of Sanctity in your sideboard. Discard effects can hurt the deck and there is no denying that, the Leyline also has some value against Prowess or Ensoul decks, personally though I've never been a fan of putting in a dead card. Rather than Leyline I have two copies of Elixir of Immortality this gains life, but also shuffles your graveyard back into your deck.

Other common sideboard inclusions are Ruric Thar, the Unbowed Hornet Queen and Carnage Tyrant (or Plated Crusher in a push) alongside Anger of the Gods and Pithing Needle these cards are likely a good place to start. I was tempted by Archetype of Endurance partly because it's a boar and partly for it's hexproof based abilities.

Hope this is of some help, good luck brewing your deck.

enpc on Mindcrank in EDH

DemonDragonJ: Elixir of Immortality isn't such an issue. It's more that there a a slew of cards (like Mission Briefing or Yawgmoth's Will ) which let you treat your graveyard like cards in your hand, which is where the power comes from. Elixir just shuffles your GY, but cards which let you target something specifically in your GY get more powerful the more options there are.

DemonDragonJ on Mindcrank in EDH

SP3CTR3_chelts, yes, I agree, since every one of my own EDH decks contains Elixir of Immortality ; therefore, I have removed Mindcrank from any of my EDh decks that do not specifically focus on using graveyards as resources.

Peisistratos on 52 mill pickup

I have some perplexities.. why Twincast over Mesmeric Orb ? Why Elixir of Immortality over Fatal Push ? What does Scheming Symmetry accomplishes here? I understand your other budget options though..
