legendofa on Should Color Pie Breaks Be …

1 month ago

I don't think blue land destruction + mass damage or green flying on demand is going to be reprinted any time soon.

Mass banning shouldn't be the way to go. The distinction between almost off-color and actually off-color is very thin and fuzzy. Ambush Viper is a classic example. Every individual part of the card is solidly available in green, but together they become very similar to a mono-black card. Is this a ban-worthy break? Dawn Charm is a hard counterspell in white, but it's a natural extension of the self-protection that white excels at. Is this ban-worthy? Thinking about that, about half of Planar Chaos and Future Sight would be under consideration for banning. Is it worth it to ban big chunks of entire blocks in all formats?

Reprints are okay, in my opinion. Chaos Warp is a good but not great card in a vacuum. The only thing notable about it is that it can temporarily remove a single enchantment. I think the idea that new players will think these are standard and typical effects won't happen as much as these people are claiming. Either a more experienced player can say "Yeah, that's a weird effect and not something that normally happens," or the new player simply collects more cards and notices that, for example, black is much better at forcing discards than white.

If you can pull together a full red-green counterspell deck from reprints, I say go for it. It's going to be less efficient than other red-green decks and other counterspell decks, but if style points are more important than winning, that should be a valid option.

Of course, I don't encourage printing new breaks. But for cards that already exist, I don't see any realistic long-term harm in keeping them in circulation.

Cool deck i love the commander! Overall looks like it can hold down the board but has trouble finishing games. So I would suggest looking into more wincons.

Perhaps the instant sorcery make a token permanents like Monastery Mentor Docent of Perfection  Flip Talrand, Sky Summoner

Candlekeep Inspiration blue over run effect. With all of the instant/sorcerys

Unique not from hand cast cards maybe worth considering some are better then others.

I should have been clear, for #1 and #3, I knew they were in the deck, I was was unsure if you were aware of them given it wasn't listed in your description. For #2, yeah it works as you described.

For #4, while it may seem like not as many compared to other highly focused artifact decks, over 1/3rd of your deck are artifacts (given you have some artifact creatures). Alternatively, the combo can be done with Future Sight as well for more flexibility at a higher and more difficult casting cost.

Mystic Remora - It almost always replaces itself and then some. Lots of people run it without abusing it simply because of the amount of value it provides, even more so against storm decks.

Misdirection - Understood and agreed, just wanted your consideration.

Snapcaster - Potential cuts from best to cut to worst for snapcaster include....

  1. Shimmer Dragon - Part of a weak combo. Costs 6 and has other activation costs. Hexproof isn't too important given he's not that impactful and isn't even an artifact. You have little combo potential with him. Removing him would allow you to more effectively use the combos you have rather than stretching yourself more thin to incorporate other combos.

  2. Darksteel Forge - Protects combos but seems a bit winmore. Paying 9 mana should win you the game.

  3. Liquimetal Torque - Its okay ramp. I understand it's true purpose is to bypass your commander's first ability (excluding permanents) so perhaps I'm wrong, but it doesn't seem super impactful. My limited understanding is that you play your expensive commander once you have achieved either a lot of preferably infinite mana.

  4. Filigree Sages - Requires training grounds for most combos and other cards. He seems great in theory but without all the other pieces, doesn't provide you with great impact.

  5. Grand Architect - You mentioned above that your own myconsith lattice shuts this down. It's anthem is negligible. I get the ramping with blue creatures is great but you only have 13 blue creatures, some of which has tapping activated abilities.

How does Karn, the Great Creator get used against you, do they have planeswalker recursion/theft? Note: His static ability only applies to opponents. His +1 can be somewhat helpful for removal while his -2 allows you to get your important combo pieces back from exile. If you do decide to keep darksteel forge, the best way to remove artifact is mass exile so this can be a potential recursion piece for you.

Isochron Scepter with a counterspell or silence.

More suggestions: Dovin's Veto, SwanSong, An Offer You Can't Refuse, Counterspell, Rhystic Study, Remand, Reprieve, Unwind.

The deck currently lacks card advantage, and especially engines that stay on board. Malcolm, Alluring Scoundrel isn't card advantage, but is selection, and can end up casting some of your top end for free. The Reality Chip is very impressive as a Future Sight that you can pay for across multiple turns and hold up mana/spend it on other things. Dragonlord Ojutai and Iymrith, Desert Doom have been impressive to me as card advantage/beaters to close games.

I too have a Narset voltron list. Yours is awesome! My only suggestion to you would be to sub out a few more creatures. You really want Narset to hit big every time. Simple shifts like Consecrated Sphinx becoming Thought Reflection or Elsha of the Infinite becoming Future Sight.

I feel like getting things rolling before too many turns pass is still the weak point. More ramp and/or early game plays would probably help. In terms of budget, I’m not looking to spend a whole lot on making more changes. The high-dollar cards that happen to be in here are mostly just luck from the things I’ve been able to collect while playing for almost 30 years.

Right now the draw is limited to the “impulse draw” effects like Outpost Siege, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Oracle's Vault and Experimental Frenzy. I agree a wheel or two in here would help. I know I have a couple Wheel of Fortune in a casual goblin deck that doesn’t get much play. For some reason I thought it was banned in Commander. Do you think Elkin Bottle is any good or is it too clunky?

I agree with your suggestions for Mind Stone and Ancient Tomb. I’ll dig around and see if I already have any extras. I think a Fire Diamond might be good as well.

I think I’ll keep Experimental Frenzy. It’s great as a mid to late game Future Sight when I start running out of things to do.

Cromat is the best! This deck is a really cool concept.

Isu the Abominable would add Future Sight value to this list.

Winter's Night doubling your mana exclusively might be useful.

Swebb87 on future sight and swindler's scheme

1 year ago

Assume I have both Future Sight and Swindler's Scheme in play. Future sight means I play with the top card of my library revealed and swindler's scheme says I may reveal the top card of my library in response to my opponent casting a spell. Can I actually do this, or not because the future sight means the card is already revealed?
