DemonDragonJ on Don't Blink, or You'll Miss It!

2 months ago

I have replaced Drogskol Reaver , Horizon Chimera , and Laboratory Maniac with Elvish Visionary , Mulldrifter , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth , which reduced this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.62 to 3.57, which is great. While those three cards did provide an alternate win condition, that combo was too mana-intensive to execute reliably. I actually am contemplating replacing Yasharn with teleportation circle from the upcoming Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set, but I shall need to wait and see how well the deck performs after this most recent modification.

DemonDragonJ on Should I Keep these Cards …

2 months ago

In my Chulane, Teller of Tales EDH deck, I have Laboratory Maniac , Horizon Chimera , and Drogskol Reaver , which form an infinite combo that will allow me to win the game if it is successful. The majority of creatures in that deck have abilities that trigger when they enter the battlefield, but I have those three creatures in it, in the case that an opponent has a Torpor Orb , Hushbringer , or Hushwing Gryff , but I am wondering if I should replace them with further creatures that have EtB abilities.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I keep those cards in my Chulane EDH deck?

Vallaris on Lich's Mastery Bat Tribal!

seshiro_of_the_orochi a few years ago I'd made a Lich deck on Arena, around the time Core 2020 was released, though I forget it if was for Standard or Brawl. If I still have the deck list I'll post it, but I remember it included every card that had Lich in the name that was available. Yarok, the Desecrated was one of the more important cards I think (would have been the commander if it was Brawl), don't have him in paper though.

And lol wow, looks like Horizon Chimera would go infinite with Lich! That looks fun. If I were to build a Sultai deck, it would likely be around Cazur, Ruthless Stalker  Flip and Ukkima, Stalking Shadow partially because I already have them and have been itching to build something janky around them, partially because my partner already has a Muldrotha deck. He used to (might still have) a Saproling Lich deck centered around Slimefoot, the Stowaway that was rather beastly lol, I almost dread to think of that being combined with Muldrotha haha.

I like the idea of having Laboratory Maniac in a Lich deck as well. Your suggestions are great!

I just read this on your profile, fun coincedence. In case you want more Mastery decks: A Laboratory Maniac version with Horizon Chimera could be fun.

Main Notes

I think you should replace Plasm Capture with Rapid Hybridization or Pongify because holding up 4 mana for a counter is rough but holding (or using) 1 mana to get rid of a boi is a lot easier

I think you should take out Dictate of Kruphix and Rites of Flourishing and slot in something else, like board wipe protection or another wheel.

I feel like unless you are confident that you are going to maintain a hand of more than 7 then maybe consider swapping out Spellbook might be a good idea

Not sure how useful Patron of the Orochi will be especially being at such a high cmc

Reforge the Soul only triggers the miracle cost if it is the card you draw for turn so you would have to pay the full CMC if you drew into it from a wheel. Thus, could save a few bucks by swapping it out for a different wheel card.

Nadir Kraken might not pull that much weight since you're theoretically going to be creating a ton of snakes and drawing a bunch of cards. Plus I'm not sure if you'll end up wanting to spend the mana to add the +1 counter and make a tentacle

Fun synergy

Bag of Holding $0.35 instead of losing all of your cards to wheels, you can actually get them back later lol

Second Harvest $1.29 2GG to double all your creature tokens... could be useful? could also just do with another wheel lol

Soul of New Phyrexia $4 Might be a lot of mana to run but if you have ashnod's alter out then you should have no issue sacking three tokens to give everything indestructible. Just one more board wipe protection

Haste Givers

Rhythm of the Wild $3 can either give them haste or make them a lil bit bigger

Ogre Battledriver $0.6 buffs snakes upon ETB and gives them haste; if this is already out and you wheel...OOF

Horizon Chimera $0.25 padding your life total isn't a bad idea; granted you are likely going to be aggressive affff

More Wheels

Molten Psyche $4

Whirlpool Warrior $4

Geier Reach Sanitarium $2.5 Might not be worth it but having a little something-something on a land is hard to deal with and could help in a pinch

Dragon Mage $0.25

Prosperity $1.5

Minds Aglow $2.5

Khorvath's Fury $3

Burning Inquiry $1 One red mana to get 9 snake bois and might get some good stuff out of someone else's hand

Game Plan $0.39 Heftier side of things at 6 CMC but everyone draws 7 instead of perhaps the same amount they discarded. Plus everyone refills their library so any graveyard shenanigans gets shut down and you don't risk milling yourself for a little bit longer

Simerix on Big Butt Big Mana

8 months ago

Cards to remove: Altered Ego, Horizon Chimera, Vastwood Hydra, Elixir of Immortality, Otherworld Atlas, Fog, Haze of Pollen, Respite, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, Prosperity, Wildest Dreams, Thryx, the Sudden Storm

Meh cards: Folio of Fancies, Beanstalk Giant, Hydra Broodmaster

Be carful with cards like Prosperity because you give your opponents a lot of cards. You pay a lot of mana for them to draw a lot of cards.

Your lands suck. I can help you find better lands to use if you would like. You will be fine if you don't change them, but better lands go a long way.

Thryx, the Sudden Storm is a decent card, but look at your mana curve. You don't have many cards over 5 cmc. In other words, he doesn't reduce the cost of many spells.

Cards like Fog don't work well in commander. When life totals are so high, you don't care about one individual combat, but gaining large long term value. This is a single use card. It will also likely sit in your hand as a dead card most of the game. Compare Fog to a card like Propaganda

Week of 7/27/2020 Combo

Drogskol Reaver + Horizon Chimera = the next time you draw a card, you draw your entire deck and gain life equal to the number of cards in your deck. To avoid losing immediately, Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

I built a deck around this combo, which is Legacy legal: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/cards-life-chocolate-things-are-better-infinite/
