Emrakul, the Promised End Discussion

Guerric on The Mimeoplasm Combo Mill (Retired)

I'm officially necro'ing this deck as of today. We had a fun last run with it, culminating in me using Emrakul, the Promised End to take my friend's turn. It wasn't enough though and he won anyway. I've enjoyed the versatility, but not the variance in this deck. I could make it more consistent and probably it would be strong. However, to do that I'd have to focus almost exclusively on winning with Walking Ballista every time, and that wouldn't be a deck I enjoy as much. In the meantime I've wanted to build Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer since she was spoiled and have the unopened precon, but never built her because I already had a Sultai deck. I'll continue to use the mana base and some of the relevant tutors and such in the new deck, while selling the splashy cards that have gone up in value a ton over the years to finance new cards for her. Rest in Peace, my T-Rex armed friend, you are great.

Profane Transfusion - Using necro to draw (or just tutor for in general) profane, go to 1 life and swap. Can also use a Leechridden Swamp to finish them off that turn

Have you considered a mind control effect in the form of either Emrakul, the Promised End , Mindslaver or Worst Fears ? Each have won me too many games to count (feels good to use or tutor for their necro and make them die). It's even better with lethal vapors, as if you have it on the field and target an opponent, one of two things will happen....

  1. They dont respond to cast of mind control effect, you take their turn, activate vapors and hold priority skipping all their turns
  2. They respond to cast of mind control effect by activating vapors, mind control effect resolves. They skip their next turn, you take their following turn.

Infernal Darkness - Contamination #2 but doesn't change the amount of mana produced by mass producing lands such as coffers, nykthos, cradle, etc....

Hey! I have a Yuriko list on my tappedout, hope it helps too: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/sneaky-fairinjas/ . About your list, I have some tips that may help you.

First, I think that Draco, despite having a mana value of 16, is pretty bad in this deck. You won't be able to cast it in most situations and, if you cast it, it is very weak. I think that cards that doesn't have that mana value, but you can cast and they may actually be useful, works better than it. Maybe a card with this function is Commit / Memory or, if your budget allows for it, Emrakul, the Promised End .

I don't think that you will take benefit from K'rrik as you want to. This deck deals damage to all opponents and can struggle with life because it attracts a lot of hate from your opponents, so using K'rrik to cast spells paying life won't be good (don't know / think that its lifelink helps that much). Also, K'rrik doesn't have an ETB or evasion to help your ninjutsu.

If Shapesharer doesn't work that well, maybe a card like Unnatural Selection may be stronger.

Maybe cast Wound Reflection is hard and attract a lot of hate to you, so maybe is better to swap it for some cheap creature with evasion, a Ninja with Ninjutsu or something like it.

Other inclusions are (depending on your budget): Zendikar Rising mythic-DFC, split-cards (e.g. Discovery / Dispersal ) and free spells (e.g. Snuff Out , Deadly Rollick ), board wipes (e.g. Devastation Tide ), cards with Delve (e.g. Treasure Cruise ), etc. Cards that have a high mana value but can be cheaper (or even free) works very well in this deck.

Here is some cards that i think are must have: Insidious Dreams , It That Betrays , Emrakul, the Promised End , Void Winnower , Krosan Cloudscraper , Consuming Aberration , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , Frantic Search , Lim-Dul's Vault , Putrefax , Dark Ritual , Bane of Progress , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (great alternative wincon with Lord of Extinction [that is one instainclude too]), Toxic Deluge , Fathom Mage , Cavern of Souls , Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Alchemist's Refuge , Pernicious Deed , Phyrexian Dreadnought , Hermit Druid , Rise of the Dark Realms , Reanimate . Those are of the hat that come to mind first when thinking whats missing here. Eldrazis are mainly for counters, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Putrefax are for swinging and Fathom Mage (another zegana) and Bane of Progress are for utility. Also you are in promised land of green ramp so i would take out heavy mana cost artifact ramps and change them to Mana Crypt and green ramp like Birds of Paradise and other 1 mana dorks. And if you want to dig for lands, Nature's Lore and Three Visits are just better Farseek s. Search for Tomorrow is also great. As enchantment ramp i would suggest Exploration , Burgeoning , Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl . I'm more than glad to answer if you have questions.

How do you survive for four turns when you have Emrakul, the Promised End , It That Betrays , All Is Dust , and Beacon of Tomorrows suspended? I've played Jhoira before, and doing this puts a HUGE target on my back.

Is there a good mono-red deck to use Stolen Strategy in ?

The art is awesome and I do love the idea of stealing my opponents stuff.

I wouldn’t mind something that could also include Mindslaver and Emrakul, the Promised End with Mages' Contest like someone pointed out to me.

Generally speaking, I don't like silver bordered cards in commander, but I suppose that some people out there appreciate this sort of thing. I like the chaos theme, and Grip of Chaos plus Emrakul, the Promised End is hilarious.

I think this deck could use a few more ramp spells and mana rocks just so you can get to playing all the silly silver bordered stuff that you can. Swapping 2 or 3 lands out to do this wouldn't hurt.
