Ghen, Arcanum Weaver Discussion

KayneMarco on Queen Marchesa the Enchantress

For a mardu enchantress build I’m surprised I don’t see Ghen, Arcanum Weaver in here. Plea for Guidance and Resurgent Belief would also be good additions to the deck. One final card to think about is Mirage Mirror. It can become a copy of any enchantment you would want multiples of. Anointed procession and ghostly prison comes to mind as examples.

DrukenReaps on Using the graveyard as a …

I almost always put some amount of graveyard recursion in my decks. It can certainly stink when someone exiles after I play a Buried Alive or set something else up but I've also shied away from revolving entire decks around it. I don't want Rest in Peace to just be me scooping every time. My Mairsil, the Pretender uses my graveyard and hand equally and my Ghen, Arcanum Weaver is more just cool to use rather than the deck's focus.

DrukenReaps on Favorite color or color combination?

So I apparently have an addiction to lol. I've got Anje Falkenrath and I'm building Kalain, Reclusive Painter . I've even got most of the off shoots of Rakdos with Ghen, Arcanum Weaver as my and Mairsil, the Pretender as my commanders. I've been thinking of what to build for and also thinking about other commanders like Lyzolda, the Blood Witch .

Are there any colors you like playing more than others? Or find merely by coincidence shows up in more of your decks than others?

DrukenReaps on Changing Commanders

2 months ago

So I had this pillow fort group slug deck led by Queen Marchesa for a long time. She had a few good synergies with the deck like Solitary Confinement and Chandra's Ignition but the deck really didn't do well if peeps killed off a few good enchants. It is now led by Ghen, Arcanum Weaver . I made some changes to better take advantage of him but to me it is pretty much the same deck.

I've only done this one other time where I decided to change my colorless deck from Karn, Silver Golem to Kozilek, the Great Distortion . In that case the change was made because I find Karn too oppressive by easily wiping out lands. Though I'd say that deck is significantly different from the original.

What decks of yours were led by one commander and then after some play time you changed to a different one? Do you do this a lot? Do you think of it as the same deck now or did it change too much?

I think I'm going to change the commander to Ghen, Arcanum Weaver . This deck has very little resilience and the Queen just draws cards. Not a bad thing but I don't find her as interesting anymore I guess... Ghen adds resilience and stays on the pillowfort/bleed theme. I'll have to change up some other things. Bring in more enchants.

SynergyBuild I completely deny that I was trying to come up with a new idea and forgot Replenish existed. Nope. Didn't happen.

Sounds like is the way to go for maximum efficiency. Ghen, Arcanum Weaver + Replenish does sound easier. But Thrasios, Triton Hero has its own merits.

I'm going to design and playtest a Ghen version and a Thrasios + Bruse Tarl version and see which I like better.

I would definitely advocate black in the deck. With all the Unmarked Grave - style effects to actually craft a graveyard. Ghen, Arcanum Weaver is the logical choice with that in mind. That said, I think you're stretching a bit much to cascade into the Resurgent Belief, unless your meta will take down an well-defended (enchantment decks tend to be one of the more tank-y deck builds) deck in 2 rounds every time they see the card being suspended.

I think the best partner for this really depends on when your gameplan ends up being.

I can see green as a good option for a 3rd color, for traditional enchantress reasons, and because green has a some decent options for filling the graveyard ( Satyr Wayfinder or Golgari Grave-Troll to name a couple), as well as a few options for tucking cards from your graveyard back into your library.

Blue is also a good option for a 3rd color and can also do everything you need to make your core gameplan work.

Of course, Thrasios, Triton Hero covers both of these colors.

Adding black opens up some good options, but, with the stated plan being mass enchantment recursion, I think I'd rather just run Ghen, Arcanum Weaver unless you wanted to use Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper .

Anyways, I'd pick your wincon first, then pick the partners that work best for it.
