Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer Discussion

TriusMalarky on Suggestions for a very political ...

2 months ago

With this kind of deck, you need to first ask yourself what strategy you're actually going for. Are you

  • Trying to use politics to slowly gain advantages before suddenly taking over and dominating?

  • Trying to make yourself such a valuable ally that everyone leaves you alone and then you go one-on-one after two people die?

  • Trying to make games last as long as possible?

I'd likely recommend the second. This is because it is easy for each opponent to justify letting you live. If you win too often, your playgroup will either opt to team up on you and crush you early, or they will(each on their own accord) attempt to take you out at the end of the game by playing their cards right.

For this deck to work, you really need to be able to guarantee that you can incentivise certain actions at your discretion. For instance, with Kenrith you can say "Hey, I'll let you draw a card if you attack player B" do the player with a solid board state but an empty hand. Every card should give you as much choice as possible and with powerful enough effects that you can give people treats for following your orders, and bring down hellfire if they disobey.

Here's my personal list:

Thank you, rdean14. And yes, I meant "undying," not "unearth," but I got my uns crossed.

Creature - Human Rogue

, : Until your next turn, target creature you don't control can't attack or block, and its activated abilities can't be activated. It's controller creates a treasure token.

1/1


There you have a de-legened Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer.

Same challenge again, but something Golgari.

The only reason Walking Atlas isn't on the deck is because I had forgotten it existed, Shammies25.

As for political candy, I recommend Humble Defector, Duelist's Heritage, and if you're feeling particularly generous, Howling Mine effects. But usually you can play the good guy by giving lands to the mana screwed. Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer goes well with this playstyle. Walking Archive is a decent gift too, especially if you can convince the giftee to invest mana into it.

CaptainToll Oh thank you, this deck has pissed off so many opponents that they keep asking if im planning on playing it when ever we start a game.

Love your inclusion of Smothering Tithe and Azor, the Lawbringer, if i ever find smothering tide cheaper i will also include it.

You are right Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer can be slow, but has proven me quite helpful when someone with a massive creature plans on targeting me, also i kinda justify it's slowness to the fact that i try to make the game as slow as possible to begin with so i guess its fine, although if i find something better that i like i have no problem cutting Gwafa out.

Hey I love your Deck and I came to the conclusion to start my own Deck based upon yours. I will however include Smothering Tithe, Azor, the Lawbringer (flickered he locks opponents almost entirely from casting sorcerys), Aven Mindcensor, Hushbringer, Tocatli Honor Guard for some stuff. Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer for example seems to slow for my taste.

TangoWithTojo on Derevi Bant EDH

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

4to16characters - Thanks so much! I might add a section later with 5 or so upgrade cards (probably under $5 each). And we'll see if anyone else votes, but what cards that are less than a dollar would you like to see in a Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer deck?

I've liked both your decklists so far. Awesome work!

I hope someday you'll add an "upgrade" section to some of your previous decks.

Also I definitely am excited to see Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer .
