Howling Mine


At the beginning of each player's draw step, if this is untapped, that player draws an additional card.

The oracle text reads as "If you would draw a card during your draw step, instead you may skip that draw. If you do, until your next turn, you can't be attacked except by creatures with flying and/or islandwalk."

So 1) it is an activated ability and as such you may or may not choose to do it and 2) it only replaces one draw so if you have multiple draws during your draw step you only need to replace one of them (like if you have Howling Mine out or something).

It is a good way to stop most creatures from attacking you as well as a way to prevent you from over drawing out your deck/late game lock down if you don't need cards. The downside is, of course, white isn't draw heavy so if you're in need of cards early you won't be using it as much as you would be it it was late game otherwise you need to find a way to draw additional cards. You also don't have islands so you can only be attached by flyers at that point.

Very silly deck. Weird to see Howling Mine without Ebony Owl Netsuke but it works here.

Hello! After checking this out, might you consider:

I really appreciate your inclusion of Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. It's one of my favorite lands.

Please continue to adapt and change and grow! This deck has so much potential. I did want to comment that a lot of what CoarselyRefined holds weight and Massacar also made great points.

One of the greatest bits about this site is how many different perspectives and playstyles are available through the community of users.

Good luck in your building!

You could always give Wall of Denial a try over Hover Barrier?

I think I would experiment with some ratio of Narset, Parter of Veils and Howling Mine... can really help dig through your own deck/toolbox while shutting down your opponents draw power.

Hey, TheOfficialCreator, thanks for the feedback!

Coveted Jewel was in a previous iteration of the deck, but honestly it feels a bit too slow at CMC 6. The mana being all one color also kind of hurts in tricolor.

Forced Fruition could work if it was a bit cheaper CMC-wise, but I like to keep the draw a little more in my favor - mill isn't particularly part of the game plan (although it can certainly happen, and has).

Added the others to the maybe board : ) Nine Lives is too funny to not use.

You're right there isn't a lot of direct synergy with my commander, but a lot of my cards don't care about controller - e.g. Howling Mine, Oblivion Ring, etc, so I can freely donate them. More cards that donate themselves is always better, though.

fuzzyhorns so Bloodchief Ascension and mincrank are alright but actually dilute from the main theme of the deck. Put in Tainted Strike, the newly reprinted Imperial Seal, Howling Mine, and Glistening Oil before the combo above. Nekusar really doesn't need technical combos. He just straight up wins. Give him infect and play a wheel and it's game especially if you can use Doublecast or Fork and duplicate the spell. Not that hard to tutor up and do with Grixis control. Here's one of my Nekusar decks:

I'm going to add Imperial Seal This one is nasty. My playgroup hates it.

Welcome to EDH. : )

Leaning into "everybody draws" cards can help Nekusar really pop off: Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Teferi's Puzzle Box are a few.
