High Tide


Until end of turn, whenever a player taps an Island for mana, that player adds to his or her mana pool (in addition to the mana the land produces).

here are some cards you could add to your deck

There are many other cards you should add to your deck but they are not for every budget. Cards like :

What do you think?

Sanguinolency on Lazav EDH: The Faceless

So, reading through your primer, it looks pretty good! It would help to add accordions that include more in depth strategies, what you use your tutors for, best targets, describe your mana base a bit and the difference between a keepable starting hand and a mulligan.

You're countermagic/removal is kinda high. I hope you don't encounter that much disruption from your pod, but if you do, godspeed my friend. You could cut a few most likely. A good amount of countermagic/removal is somewhere between 8-12 cards depending on your meta, unless your a reactive deck. You could cut a few to add cards that help you find win quicker.

I think Diabolic Intent would be a good add here, just in case you had to cast one of your creatures and need it in the grave, also its a great tutor.

If you want some quick card advantage, I recommend Necropotence and Mystic Remora for a more Rhystic Study-ish card.

Your deck relies a good bit on what's in your graveyard, I think some protection would do some good. Maybe add Necromancy to save a combo piece at instant speed. I'm not sure of your budget, but Time Spiral or its cheaper version Echo of Eons could help save your combo pieces in a pinch and allows you to put your value cards back in to your deck.

I think Devastation Tide is a bit wonky in the deck, yeah it can miracle, but it resets everyone, including you, given it's sorcery, cyclonic rift is just better. I wouldn't run it. Dev tide was essentially the "fixed" (worse) version of cyc rift.

Key to the City is slow on all accords, I would cut it for an aforementioned card.

Here are some other ramp/can trip suggestions:

High Tide

Cabal Coffers




Dark Ritual

These cards allow the deck to ramp out more consistently and find cards you need more efficiently.

Hope this helped.

Hey, nice first blue Commander deck.

With Syr I think you want to draw cards, more than usual because this fuels the amount of power she has to attack with.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

With Narset only you benefit from the draw of cards from Mine, Dictate, Kami and Folio. This is a powerful effect especially with Folio.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Aether Gale
  • Distortion Strike
  • Slip Through Space
  • Burnished Hart
  • Guard Gomazoa
  • Hover Barrier
  • Worn Powerstone
  • Cancel
  • Illusionist's Gambit
  • Drake Umbra
  • Open Into Wonder
  • Flight of Fancy
  • Kumena's Awakening
  • Thaumatic Compass
  • Chemister's Insight

Because you have Thassa, God of the Sea who's a repeatable source of making Syr unblockable then I don't think you need a lot of these cards that are a single effect (only making Syr unblockable for one turn). Good luck with your deck.

discipleofgary73 Great Whale is gas, was perfect back before they printed 'rix and the commander was Taniwha . Played High Tide , Conjurer's Closet , Nim Deathmantle you mentioned and super stupid stuff like Sky Swallower + Soul Foundry + Donate + Mindslaver . Sadly Breaching Leviathan and Slinn Shady don't trigger on flickering... but I'll try fitting the whale back in :)

With citadel, all you need is 1 draw then you cast off the top of library.

You could also use some sort of Palinchron High Tide / Bubbling Muck (depending on your landbase) combo to get infinite mana and burn people out with grapeshot or Comet Storm

I also just thought of a worldgorger finisher. Bitter Ordeal . Exile every card in your opponent's decks and pass turn.

I actually have a deck I built that I designed to be my Signature Spellbook, but I'll show off some of my highlights:

- Bubbling Muck - Somehow, no one ever expects the black High Tide . Nearly all of my most destructive plays of all times started with this.

- Defile - Mutilate lite. I was torn between this and Tragic Slip , but settled on this due to the "more black is more powerful" feeling it has.

- Exsanguinate - Ah the classic. I've finished more games with this card than... something that happens a lot.

- Liliana of the Dark Realms - It was either going to be this or Sorin Markov , but I feel that black, big mana is more indicative of my favored strategy than, "Welp, you're at ten life now."

- Phyrexian Obliterator - This creature is everything that black should be: big, high devotion, and just plain unfortunate to face.

- Syphon Mind - Probably my favorite black draw spell. Being two cards up on each of your opponents feels pretty solid.

- Temporal Extortion - Damned if you do, damned if you don't. I never play this card hoping for one mode or the other. I do my best to drop it where either mode is horrible for my opponents.

- Torment of Hailfire - Truth be told, I prefer this to Exsanguinate . I've put up some pretty ridiculous numbers with this bad boy. Even if it doesn't drop all of my opponents, whoever remains is usually so weakened they might as well be dead.

Ethereal_Reaper on Urza, Budget as I Can Get

I know it's probably outside the realm of "budget as I can get" but you can pick up a Sensei's Divining Top for about $30, and it would enable a ton of shenanigans in this deck. Also slotting in a Future Sight alongside it would open up a few more infinite lines, since you already run Etherium Sculptor and Sai, Master Thopterist

Also, at 32 Islands, you really should consider running High Tide or even a Caged Sun depending on how casual your meta is.
