THE SHOW BUTTON DOESN'T WORK OMG HERE IT IS TYPED OUT LIKE A LOSER.

Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but wait...how 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers

ThisIsMyAccount on Making Chasm Skulker Viable

11 months ago

I actually made my own budget deck with Chasm Skulker not too long ago. My Teferi, Time Quickener - Budget deck focused more on drawing extra cards to beef up Chasm Skulker and less on adding +1/+1 counters. I think what could be a good idea for this deck is to maybe use like a Hardened Scales deck shell and try to incorporate Chasm Skulker into that theme. I would say whatever direction you try to go with the deck to add a couple Scavenging Ooze. It is just such a good card.

I like the idea you have going on with Zameck Guildmage and Fuel for the Cause.

@TriusMalarky

Thanks for looking at the mana. I'm not sure about it since I haven't played yet (and next get together is probably in a month or so), but I think you make a valid case with the tapped lands. I want to try out the new MDFCs and I found out i have the U/R and U/B duals lying around. I've swapped them and Interplanar Beacon for Temple of Deceit, Vivid Crag and Creeping Tar Pit. What others would you recommend cutting for more basics?

Perhaps you're right on the 3cmc artifacts too, even though I'd say commander's sphere is decent because it cycles for free when you don't need it anymore. I might add Rakdos Signet and cut Chromatic Lantern.

Crux of Fate is already in the list, Vandalblast or By Force might be nice instead of the 5th boardwipe though

@RNR_Gaming

True that's a combo. I don't think I'll run it beause I don't have the cards currently interesting loop for sure though!

I cut Fuel for the Cause for Daretti, Scrap Savant

@Daveslab2022

That play pattern appeals, so maybe I'll find room for it later. A bit of randomness like that can make games more fun

@Nightblad3

Beacon is in now :)

In Bolas's Clutches is more of a flavorcard, so are The Eldest Reborn and Cruel Ultimatum. Some or all will probably go after the first couple games, but I like the idea for now.

My idea about Pentad Prism is that it's a nice 2 mana ramp spell that can be proliferated onto for ramp. Throne of Geth is another way to proliferate because i do make some artifacts here and there

The idea with most artifacts is that they either ramp, proliferate or benefit from proliferation (see the section Card by Card). Which other cards do you feel are part of the subtheme but don't contribute?

If you're talking about Saheeli, Tezzeret and (now x2) Daretti: I think the Business Artifacts in the list (the chain veil, contagion clasp/engine and lithoform engine) are worth fetching / copying even just on their own, but maybe your idea is they don't do enough?

Let me know because I'm curious what you think on the topic, if you have suggestions to spice up the artifact theme I'd gladly hear them!

Savage1988 on Bolas superfriends list needs some …

11 months ago

Hey all,

Bolas's Pro-Life Superfriends is my first attempt at:

  • grixis

  • proliferation

  • and planeswalkers in edh

Initially i thought of going Bolas Tribal (hence the commander) because i got a japanese prerelease promo of Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God while on holiday in Tokyo, which i obviously really wanted to build something with. Piece by piece i adjusted the list to be a little more synergistic instead of a theme-deck until it looked like the list below. Very little Bolas left, but probably something that can sometimes hold its own. Still very casual, but I think fun for a while. I think it should work but i haven't played a game yet.

Any feedback and tales from experience from my fellow T/Oers is much appreciated on any of the deck's pieces.

Some questions i have are:

Neat deck, like the idea. I think Treachery is an underrated card for the theme.

Also, you have a ton of boardwipe, so maybe go with counters rather than targeted removal? Mana Leak is a good one for multicolor, and Spell Pierce is also handy, but then there's always Force of Negation, Force of Will and Mana Drain, if you have the money for them.

Next, with all the planeswalkers in here, some proliferate might be helpful. Fuel for the Cause, to continue the counter trend, but also Grim Affliction, Volt Charge and Flux Channeler are good options.

And as a personal preference, I'd say to also look at Mindslaver. Not an incredibly popular card, but one I enjoy.

Finally, I will suggest increasing the lands by a couple, but only really because everyone else always tells me to do that. I've been running 35 lands in all of my EDH decks and find that to be a good ratio, but a lot of the competitive decks I see posted on here run around 36 or 37. I only say it because you have a high mana curve, even given all the rocks. A couple fetch lands like Polluted Delta and Bloodstained Mire would probably do the trick, especially if you could get ahold of Blood Crypt, Watery Grave and Steam Vents.

Woah, sorry this comment is so long, haha...

Cheers!
