Search your library for a card, put that card into your graveyard, then shuffle your library.

Azoth2099 on So basically dimir Talrand

Hey man! You're gonna need a higher density of card draw, ramp and tutors if you want this bad boy to he more consistent, there's no way around it. Fortunately you're in , so that's no big deal. I'd recommend the following options:

Tutors: Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Grim Tutor, Beseech the Mirror, Mystical Tutor, Personal Tutor, Solve the Equation, Fabricate Spellseeker, Merchant Scroll & Lim-Dul's Vault.

Draw: Talion, the Kindly Lord, Necropotence, Black Market Connections, Dark Confidant, Dark Tutelage, Night's Whisper & Ad Nauseam (if you can lower your mana curve).

Ramp: Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet, Fellwar Stone, Springleaf Drum, Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Culling the Weak, Bubbling Muck & High Tide. Maybe Rain of Filth.

Other synergistic value: Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Acquire, Entomb, Reanimate & Mnemonic Betrayal.

Other than that I'd probably say add more cheap counterspells and instant speed removal so you can control the board and bolster your own. Let me know if you need help with cuts, I'm seeing a lot of them.

Yep, it's a good deck for sure lol.

I guess my only real questions/statements are as follows:

Is there any reason you're not running Entomb? I can understand not running things like Displacer Kitten or Storm-Kiln Artist, but Entomb is a 2nd 1-card wincon alongside Demonic Consultation with this Commander since you're running Intuition. I'd ask the same for Deflecting Swat, especially since it was also reprinted recently.

Consider Tolarian Winds over Thrill of Possibility! It usually draws more cards, is better for Underworld Breach & can be pitched to Force of Will & Force of Negation. Value! Merchant Scroll - being able to Tutor up the almighty Intuition - should probably be tested as well of you haven't already done so.

Gidgetimer on "Meta-less" format?

4 months ago

To Illustrate the point system thing maybe give each of the common targets 1 point, Animate Dead, Entomb, and Reanimate 2 points and something format defining like Force of Will 1 point, not based on any particular deck and a point budget of 20. None of the three decks would make that point budget as they have (in the order I mentioned them in my most recent post) 29, 38, and 29 points respectively. They would have to drop at least 1 target and 4 of the "central cards" in order to make the point budget. Points on the main list could be assigned and lowered/raised by some sort of committee on a quarterly basis based on what meta decks look like and how well the list is doing keeping "metaless" decks from looking like meta decks.

Gidgetimer on "Meta-less" format?

Definitely not something I'd be interested in as brewing decks is not something I enjoy. I do however have a couple of opinions on the rules.

For the sake of fairness; I'd be more a proponent of a percentage of non-land cards being the same, than just a percentage of cards. Does this give an advantage to Dark Depths decks in formats that contain it? Yes, but I don't think that it will be as much of a problem as just starting control decks off with a 33% similarity and only allowing 26:25 ratio of "meta cards" compared to the 20-27% of aggro decks and them getting a 30-35:25 ratio.

Meta decks aren't actually a monolith in some older formats. Looking at Legacy Reanimator on MTGtop8 there are only about 10-12 non-land cards and 8 or so lands guaranteed to be in every reanimator deck. Every deck runs 4 of Entomb and 6-8 total between Reanimate and Animate Dead. Other than that the 3% of decks is split between Rakdos, Grixis, and Dimir. With Dimir being the least represented, so I could make an argument for the Legacy Reanimator deck that I borrow from my friend and I have run in tournaments not being a "meta deck" despite having the early, consistent, wins that are a hallmark of what people seem to dislike about "meta decks".

Brett says Unmarked Grave is a modern legal Entomb/Buried Alive.

Quickspell on ‘Tis But A Scratch

Maybe Crashing Drawbridge to give your creatures haste, and Entomb and Buried Alive to Reanimate your most powerful Knights. You could Secret Salvage a Nazgûl to search your library for the other eight.

Fireshrieker for your Commander, and definitely Silverblade Paladin. But you could also consider just going for Sakashima the Impostor and similar copycats to double down on your commander’s abilities.

legendofa on Supernatural-inspired gy creature

6 months ago

What's the intent of the first ability? I don't know Supernatural at all, so it might be a flavor thing I'm missing. It also feeds the token creation ability a bit too well, especially with the second ability.

The second ability should be worded as a replacement effect: "If Strong-Souled Loxodon would deal combat damage, you may have it fight target creature (you don't control?) instead."

The token creation ability is too much. Turn 1, target yourself with Funeral Charm or Cry of Contrition or Putrid Imp or Entomb or Tome Scour or Careful Study or Faithless Looting or Burning Inquiry... A turn 1 13/13 with no card disadvantage and minimal setup, available in multiple colors, would break the game. The last clause helps a little bit, but it's still overpowered--Death's Shadow with zero risk and reduced color requirement.

Overall, this card might be accurate to what Supernatural has, but in M:tG, it's just overpowered.

Azoth2099 on Kaalia Kicks Vast Ass

6 months ago

The best way I've found to help Kaalia of the Vast cheat all of those big ole chonkers creatures into play is by running a solid Reanimator package so that your deck doesn't rely solely on it's Commander to function. Entomb, Reanimate, Buried Alive, Victimize, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Phyrexian Reclamation & Final Parting do a lot of work.

I'd also recommend looking through the recent Dominaria Remastered & Commander Masters sets for spicy, cheap reprints like Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sneak Attack & Gamble. Oh, don't forget to get Vilis, Broker of Blood in there at some point as well.

Here's my own Kaalia list if you wanna check it out: ANCIENT DRAGON TEMPEST (KAALIA)
