Eternal Witness Discussion

Flagstones/brought back is neat.

I feel like this could be a really powerful engine. Brought back is already very close to being a combo - getting to put Spore Frog and Eternal Witness in the sideboard and sometimes just straight up winning off that alone is nice.

Maybe look at Saffi Eriksdotter combo lists? Roiling Regrowth/Springbloom Druid as extra (bad) harrow copies? Knight of the Reliquary/Elvish Reclaimer for utility lands?

There is definitely something strong here - there are too many good cards without homes that suit this.

DareiJuxis, Avacyn, Angel of Hope is not an option for me. I like the card too much to take it out. I still want to test The First Iroan Games and Nils, Discipline Enforcer has worked well so far in my meta. I ordered the Wild Beastmaster and will test it. Masako the Humorless synergizes well with Saryth, the Viper's Fang so far.

I put Eternal Witness, Reverent Hoplite and Rishkar's Expertise in the deck and will test them over the weekend.

DareiJuxis Thanks you for your recommendations.

A few cards were just for the flavor for me and in the end they won several games like Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Along with counters for Kyler, Nils, Discipline Enforcer is a good defense against a friend's Hamza, Guardian of Arashin. And The First Iroan Games was not pulled at this point since i took the card on the Deck.

I will definitely test Reverent Hoplite instead of Increasing Devotion.

I personally think Wild Beastmaster is too slow. the card puts the archenemy in my face without really doing anything in the turn. maybe with Concordant Crossroads when the secret lair is published.

I just don't like Thalia's Lieutenant. I'm also not a fan of the fact that 95% of Kyler, Sigardian Emissary decks just look and play the same. That's why I don't take some cards in for personal reasons as well as for playful reasons.

I'm also at the point in the deck where it's incredibly difficult for me to part with individual cards because they've either done a good job or I like the flavor so much. If you have any suggestions for Eternal Witness or Hopeful Initiate, I'll be happy to take note of them and think about them.

Seems good, though some things come to mind-

  • Increasing Devotion has never impressed me, I think it would be worth putting in Reverent Hoplite over it since it is a human that makes more humans. It may not always make as much, but can make more than Increasing Devotion, and increases creature count. It's even the same cmc, not including the flashback.
  • Hopeful Initiate is a synergistic way to remove problematic enchantments or artifacts as a 1 mana human that grows as well.
  • I'd like Wild Beastmaster in this since it will naturally be bigger with your commander. Thalia's Lieutenant also comes to mind as a cheap way to boost up the team and add counter synergy.
  • Any deck can run more recursion, i.e. Eternal Witness, to get back something important that was lost. She's human as well.
  • For card draw, this could use a Rishkar's Expertise. Since this deck does not specifically seem to look to make tokens, it may be better to draw off power rather than number like with Shamanic Revelation, but that's not to say Shamanic is bad.

Personally, I am not a fan of Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Nils, Discipline Enforcer, and I think The First Iroan Games is too slow.

DrukenReaps on Teneb, the Harvester

Alright I suppose these are what I'd choose to keep then- Teneb, the Harvester, Pull from Eternity, Harness Infinity, Planar Birth, Eerie Ultimatum, Sun Titan, Minion's Return, Unholy Indenture, Emeria Shepherd, Splendid Reclamation, Animate Dead, Eternal Witness, Timeless Witness, and Noxious Revival. This is if you want to lean fully into those cards that win the game.

Dread Return, Reanimate, and Reclaim are ones that I'd still try to find a spots for above the others.

Megalomania on Kenrith, The God-King

For starters, i’d go with less tapped lands and more ramp spells. The Battlebond and Commander Legends “duals” are good option. Basics will also be fine especially if you have Signets to help with the mana fixing.

If you want this to be more focused on combos, you can lose the big creatures and replace them with tutors, board wipes and more disruption spells. Same goes with the more goodstuff type of cards like Voidwalker and Willbreaker.

Lastly, add recursion like Eternal Witness, Timeless Witness and Memory's Journey. It will make your life a whole lot easier.

Gidgetimer on The "A" Team (Tayam Rube Goldberg Combo)

1 month ago

Hey, thanks for taking the time to comment. First I am going to address the questions and then move onto the suggestions.

Gift of Granite is there to combo with Tayam and Devoted Druid. Making her toughness 4 allows you to tap for mana and untap by placing a -1/-1 counter 3 times completely fueling infinite Tayam activations. There are other card that can enable this line, but I like the aura because I can find it off of Lost Auramancers and flash I feel is the most useful of the +0/+2 for a single mana enchantments.

Oblivion Ring is there as a removal that can be returned with Tayam. Returning Eternal Witness to return an Anguished Unmaking might be a slightly stronger play, but would require more mana and more cards to have been milled if we encounter mid-combo permanent based disruption.

Lotus Bloom is there to make 3 mana incase we are able to establish a "counters only" loop with Tayam. You can repeatedly do the loop returning the Lotus Bloom until you are able to find one of the altars, or one of the Druid lines. It enables more varied versions of the engines. I have not taken the time to list them with all the other ones because I feel the primer is long enough at this point, I should probably put it in the line where I mention counters only engines. I'm not sure of another similar card outside of LED (price prohibitive) that would fill a similar role.

Pull from Eternity is because I am paranoid about things getting exiled and the entire fragile machine falling apart. I have never had it happen. I have actually never had a single integral piece exiled. But it is a security blanket for me. I might be making the deck strictly less powerful by doing this, but power level is quite high enough for my meta.

Sun Titan and Angelic Renewal are both good cards, but I'm not sure what I would cut for them. There is just so much redundancy already and i'm not sure that they would make any of the lines more resilient or more compact.

Soul-Guide Lantern is a great suggestion! There are so many new and varied variations of activated graveyard exile effects that I haven't kept up with all of them. I pulled the Tormod's Crypt from a M21 booster when I was intending to order a Nihil Spellbomb for the deck and just slotted it in and left it. I will definitely have to order a Lantern.

Have you considered Emiel the Blessed + Village Bell-Ringer? with Thousand-Year Elixir, you can also just use Emiel and any dork that can produce 4+ mana. Emiel + Eternal Witness is nice tech too - you can even use it grab basically any instant/sorcery and channel it through Blind Obedience to drain the table given infinite mana.
