wallisface on Help improve my deck pls

Two things that might help people better evaluate this:

1) what format is this for? I assume Modern??

2) make this as a deck on the site and put the link to it here. It’s a bit hard reading the list as a wall-of-text.

Just from looking at what’s there at the moment, a bunch of cards don’t seem very good/helpful - namely Nylea's Disciple (doesn’t advance your boardstate therefore doesn’t do anything), Nissa, Genesis Mage (and excessively high mana cost and basically only provides even more mana), Gelatinous Genesis (there’s just better things to be doing than this).

I’m worried you’re investing a lot of energy to maybe be cheating out some kindof-ok (but a bit meh) creatures, when you could instead just be Tooth and Nailing out an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Xenagos, God of Revels to win the game on the spot.

Some thoughts:


4 months ago

Contrary to IXALAN_Crazys thoughts, having 12 pieces of interaction seems good to me, as your deck needs to assemble a lot of pieces, and as part of that you need to buy yourself a lot of time.

I also don’t think Collected Company is ideal here, your creature density is too low even if you add in a few more, and it’s more important to get the right creature to complete the combo, rather than a random smattering.

I think Eladamri's Call could be good here for finding you the pieces you need to get the combo rolling. Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip could also be very strong for both finding the combo pieces and also digging for a wincon once you have infinite mana (it can only grab creatures, so you’d want to swap out Gelatinous Genesis in place if auto-win creatures like Walking Ballista or Emrakul, the Aeons Torn).

The rules on card identification are in the Tournament Rules and as such outside of Competitive and Pro REL events the standards can be different, though the tournament rules are pretty lenient on this matter. You simply have to make clear which card you are talking about and the process of "naming" doesn't have to include the full or even partial name. As long as all participants understand what card is being referenced. For instance you could call Emrakul, the Aeons Torn "Flying Spaghetti Monster 1.0" or call Dark Confidant "Bob" and the cards will count as "named".

3.6 Card Identification and Interpretation

A card is considered named in game when a player has provided a description (which may include the name or partial name) that could only apply to one card. Any player or judge realizing a description is still ambiguous must seek further clarification.

Players have the right to request access to the official wording of a card they can describe. That request will be honored if logistically possible. The official text of any card is the Oracle text corresponding to the name of the card. Players may not use errors or omissions in Oracle to abuse the rules. The Head Judge is the final authority for card interpretations, and they may overrule Oracle if an error is discovered.

Some cards with a Universes Beyond treatment have different names for the Universes Beyond and Universes Within versions. These cards are considered to be the same card. Other special treatments of cards may alter the name in ways that are clear references to the original card (e.g. Swords2Plowshares); these are also considered to be the same card.

Some nontraditional cards (i.e., attractions) may share a name across multiple versions of the card. The name is considered to refer to all versions and does not need further disambiguation, including during deck registration.

Back when Scars of Mirrodin was in Standard, I had very similar deck: UG Proliferate . I will explain how my deck worked:

  • The central card of my deck was the Everflowing Chalice. Without it I simply don't have enough mana to play the cards and abilities. As such, I played 4 Trinket Mage, 4 Ancient Stirrings to find them (literally the reason why I played those two cards) and 3 Voltaic Key to untap them for more mana. For me, it was absolutely imperative to find the Chalice, so I believe you should be playing more Trinket Mage.
  • In my original build, I tried Semblance Anvil and Throne of Geth, but removed them as they cause card disadvantage. I had lot of mana, so I preferred expensive artifacts such as Contagion Engine that stay on board rather than cheap one-shot effects such as Ichor Wellspring.
  • Tezzeret's Gambit was phenomenal - it both provides another Proliferate I was missing, and it draws cards, so you won't run out of steam later in the game. The phyrexian mana worked great - at the start of the game, I am willing to pay life, because I need speed. At the end of the game, you have little life but extra mana is good. It's million times better than the Trigon of Thought you are playing.
  • I also played Prototype Portal, but it's actually a weak card. I started with 4, then went down until I played 1. It's slow - basically any game where you have mana and time to activate it three times to get to +1 card out of it was won anyway... However, there's a reason I play one - it enables you to go to stars should the game be locked. Imprinting Voltaic Key enables you to make a copy of Key, which will then untap the Portal. Withing five turns, you have thousands of mana and Keys, which enable repeated activation of all your artifacts.
  • Sphere of the Suns is not best, but a reasonable play. I may have made a mistake to play 0. You don't want to draw multiple, but 1-2 may be a good call. It speeds you up and we both know the deck is slow. Mox Opal would be better if it weren't expensive.
  • Voltaic Key is another really powerful card - it doubles your Everflowing Chalice mana, enables multiple activations of Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Lux Cannon and Tumble Magnet. You can use the Key to untap Elixir of Immortality in response to it's activation to activate it multiple times and gain more life.
  • Tumble Magnet was the "removal" in my deck. Not very good, but made the opponent's equipment useless.
  • Golem Foundry was the win-condition of my deck, but it was simply horrible. I didn't want to play Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and the like, because it I get to 15 mana, I win anyway. If I don't get to that mana, Emrakul is a dead card.
  • Finally I played Necropede, with 2-3 probably a better choice than 1. They provide early blocking against aggro decks, capable of destroying two creatures for just 2 mana. Just proliferate. However, unlike other removal spells, this won't be dead if opponent has nothing on board. If you ever score a hit, you can proliferate your opponent to death.

I had a lot of fun with the deck. It was cheap (Contagion Engine cost 50 cents back then), unique, and you had permanently things to do - placing counters was 50% of the game time. It had problems if the opponent played Planeswalkers such as Elspeth Tirel, burn spells or +1/+1 counters (since they cancel the -1/-1 counters and then you can't proliferate to kill enemy creatures).

I haven't played with this deck much and it's honestly built with cards I already had, but I have Chart a Course so I have someway to get rid of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn if I end up drawing into it. I will definitely be adding more lands though, since I think you are right, 20 is probably a little low.

Gidgetimer on Pattern Recognition #296 - Enchanté

9 months ago

I feel like you skipped over a whole slew of the development of Enchantress as an archetype and therefore presented it as being a deck in search of a win con before Theros. It has always been tier 2 jank in legacy, but it was powerful enough to take occasional large tournament wins.

You mentioned Urza's block and mention the two cards with "Enchantress" in their name but not Serra's Sanctum or Replenish. The latter two actually make it into competitive eternal decks and Yavimaya Enchantress does not.

The Sanctum in particular is extremely important to the way the deck developed. The plan in many eternal enchantress decks is legitimately to hardcast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. This still takes until turn 5 or 6 and is durdly as hell for the format, but all that mana from the Sanctum makes it a legitimate plan. Alternatively the win condition in many others is to plop down a Sigil of the Empty Throne and go wide with 4/4 angels. I even have a friend who ran Words of War as a wincon, again greatly aided by the Sanctum.

The "dig to the combo" you mention that is actually played is Helm/RIP and is the third commonly played wincon. And I'm not sure I agree with the assessment that it defies expectations, or should be abandoned in favor of playing blue. At its heart Enchantress as an archetype is GWx control and the wincon can be almost anything.

Wincons from Theros were never even added to eternal Enchantress, they kept the old wincons and added at most a few Eidolon of Blossoms and a few Doomwake Giant. The return to Theros did give us Destiny Spinner who is a wincon that is run. MH2 also had a large impact on eternal Enchantress by adding Sythis, Harvest's Hand and Sanctum Weaver.

This isn't to say that there haven't been strong enchantments coming out recently. Or that it isn't nice that they are supporting the archetype to an extent that a standard deck can be made out of it. It is just that if one wants to talk about the evolution of the archetype it should be done primarily in the context of competitive eternal formats where it will remain unchanged until a card changes the archetype. With mentions of rotating and casual formats to show the archetype across the whole of Magic.

Wow I really misunderstood how state-based actions work when I wrote that previous comment.

Leyline of the Void actually doesn't synergize with a lot of stuff I have in the "plan to get" section. While useful against Eldrazi titans, specifically Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, their shuffle effect can be countered with Nihil Spellbomb or Tormod's Crypt. Also idk how common any of those cards are in commander.
