Font of Mythos


At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws two additional cards.

Caerwyn on Should I Put Cutthroat Negotiator …

I cannot speak for K&T, but I think this is a bad card for Nekusar, for the same reason I suggested Font of Mythos was on your prior thread.

Yes, it gives you some value in terms of mana and a card, but you are also giving your opponents a lot of value (a single card) with a very low cost (a small bit of damage, if and only if you have other damage enablers fielded). On its own, it does little for you; even with other cards, it only provides incremental gains rather than the more explosive burns you want in order to win.

I am contemplating putting Cutthroat Negotiator into these two decks, since that creature works well with the group hug (or, in the case of Nekusar, group slug) theme that those decks have, but I am not certain what cards to remove for the negotiator.

In my Kynaios and Tiro deck, I imagine that I could replace Crystal Ball with the negotiator, since that deck already has sufficient methods of drawing cards that it should not need to worry about scrying, and I could replace Font of Mythos in my Nekusar deck, as they have the same mana value.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I put Cutthroat Negotiator into those two decks?

Caerwyn on Should I Put Orcish Bowmasters …

I would add Bowmasters to the deck, but neither of those are the cards I would cut. Instead, I would cut one of the following:

  • Crystal Ball - This is just a bad card. You pay 2 mana and get no immediate effect. You have to pay a one mana and tap it down to get any effect. And the effect you get is generally bad - but is really bad in Nekusar where you should be drawing deep enough that you don’t need to worry as much about top deck manipulation.

  • Font of Mythos and Howling Mine - These cards seem like they would be good with Nekusar, but they are too slow. Nekusar has the problem of giving your opponents cards - which means he often is the one empowering your opponents into finding ways of stopping you. You want to go big and explosive, killing opponents as fast as possible - little tiny gains like these cards empower your opponents and increase their chances of drawing into answers before you kill them. Consider, for every 1 card these artifacts net you, you are giving your opponents 3 cards and some small damage amounts.

Journeytodiscoverychannel on Queza Go Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Ad Nauseam would be a good one

Paradox Haze will give you 4 draws when paired with Kami of the Crescent Moon

Fate Unraveler and Font of Mythos let’s you benefit from giving other players additional upkeeps

Rhox Faithmender groups well with Children of Korlis and Ad Nauseam

Crawlspace would be good to slow down incoming attacks on top of Propaganda and Ghostly Prison

Using Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose you could double up damage, paired with Rhox Faithmender and Children of Korlis that could be game.

Just some suggestions! Started building mine today and figured I’d check out what other people were building with Queza.

Necrologia is a combo with Psychosis Crawler. Demonic Consultation is a combo with Laboratory Maniac and Thassa's Oracle. Browbeat is not great in commander. Font of Mythos and Dictate of Kruphix are more Howling Mine type effects.

Caerwyn on Nekusar 2.0

9 months ago

I would cut all the Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, and similar effects. While they seem like they would be good with Nekusar, they end up hurting you more than they help. These cards do very little damage - and only do damage when you have a Nekusar effect on the field - while giving your opponents a major advantage in terms of additional cards. Consider, in a four player game you are drawing one additional card from a Howling Mine, while giving your collective opponents three cards per round. Nekusar already struggles from the reality that it increases the chances your opponents draw the cards they need to stop you - these effects increase that chance drastically, while only minimally furtherance of your own victory.

Just curious, but do you pronounce your Commander's first letter as more of a 'z', or more of an 'sh' sound, or something else entirely?

It's a bit slower than other options, but Font of Mythos is a ton of snakes each cycle. Court of Cunning is a bigger mill effect than Hedron Crab, and it can also create more card draw (and it's really easy for you to get the monarchy back with your wide board). Ohran Frostfang or Toski, Bearer of Secrets are good with lots of tokens out, especially Frostfang because nobody wants to block a 1/1 Deathtouch. There is also Bow of Nylea to give them Deathtouch. Coat of Arms is a big dumb wincon if you've got a bunch of snakes, though you might need Trample. There is also Shared Animosity. Thunderfoot Baloth can make your snakes hit harder, as can Blossoming Bogbeast if you've got some random life gain in the deck. With all the card draw I wonder if Venser's Journal might fit.

Urborg Repossession isn't legal for your deck since the kicker cost includes a green mana. It's outside of the color identity.

You may also want to look at Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Font of Mythos, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, and Temple Bell.
