Idol of Oblivion Discussion

Talonisnthavingit on Leaf's Token Deck

  • I'd replace Karametra's Favor with Cryptolith Rite . Sure, you won't be able to draw a card, but you'll get a lot more use out of it.

  • A land suggestion would be Grove of the Guardian . Late game, it gets you an 8/8.

  • I'd replace Harmonize with Idol of Oblivion . It's kind of a risk-reward thing, but if it lasts till late game you can get a 10/10

  • While Beast Attack is nice due it being an instant, Trumpeting Herd is a lot better. Beast Attack gives you 8 power and toughness for 10 mana, while Trumpeting Herd gives you 6 power and toughness for 4 mana.

  • If you'd like, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is a great Token generator, but it takes 4-5 turns to get the emblem, depending on if you want to keep him or not. His +1 is nice, and his -2 can be alright.

Hey, nice version of Teysa. I don't know if it's great or that competitive, but fine for casual.

Budget is obviously a concern therefore my card suggestions will be within the budget. With only two tutors (Intent, Diabolic) to get Darkest Hour and only two sources of repeatable draw (Mentor, Skullclamp) going to have a difficult time out valuing your opponents or even keeping up with them. My advice is expand on Skullclamp since it's your best source of card advantage with sac outlets and tokens. Include more ways to get Skullclamp and recur Skullclamp?

Repeatable draw to consider adding:

Other cards within the budget to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Scoured Barrens
  • 2x Plains
  • Beckon Apparition
  • Intangible Virtue
  • Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
  • Archetype of Finality
  • Drana's Emissary
  • Anointer Priest
  • Spark Harvest
  • Commander's Sphere

Idol of Oblivion and Endless Atlas both seem like good sources of card draw for your colors.

I'm thinking you'll want to maximize on artifacts that are sacrificed in order to reap great benefit.

If you want access to some great ramp for you deck, Tooth of Ramos and Heart of Ramos will allow you to get 2 mana from them. After they are sacrificed, if Gerrard dies you get them back for free. Now I'm not sure on the technicality / legality of it, but I believe Horn of Ramos , Skull of Ramos and Eye of Ramos can also be used in your deck. Their errata text contains the mana symbols, but the physical cards do not; They list the color by name, not by identification. So I believe they are legal in all decks, regardless of colors.

Probably a few I missed but there you go.

hello mr. durtee i just wanted too say hey cool nice deck but your playing too many creatures like what if you get field swiped dude?? haha wouldnt that be crazy any way you should make it a landless stacks control prison combo storm deck with blue i herd those were good okay thanks you john bye

I'm going to try to order these from my most to least recommended.

Mirror March: I get making token copies, even if it's only nontoken creatures. What I can't get behind is costing 6 and STILL HAVING A 50% CHANCE OF DOING NOTHING.

Spirit Bonds: Ignoring the weak payoff of the spirit token (at least by edh standards), paying five mana and sacrificing a specific creature to protect one guy for one turn is pretty lame. You can't even protect your seance tokens because they're spirits.

Mercy Killing: If you choose an opponent's creature, they get the tokens. If you choose your own guys, you're going wide at the cost of two cards.

Eyes of the Wisent:

COWARD Show

Emrakul's Evangel: I can't see what he does other than act like a one-time sac outlet that you have to wait for. 3/2 is going to be pretty close to what you're usually sacrificing anyway.

Huatli, Warrior Poet: Her token is cool, but her other abilities are really weak for the cost. Also she got a tiny booty.

Caller of the Claw: He'd be like a backup Fresh Meat if he counted the tokens too. 1 less mana for 1 less p/t would have been alright. Too bad.

Summoner's Pact: Kind of a weak creature tutor since you aren't playing toolbox or gunning for combo. Only green too.

Hornet Nest: Deathtouch flyers are good, but you don't have a way to damage it yourself and you probably have bigger threats than getting hit by birds.

Hoofprints of the Stag: Unless you add a lot more draw, these stags take forever to come out.

Godsire: Nice token, but he's got no haste or protection, which means you have to wait for the token while this dumbass sits there waiting to see if anyone around the table wants to remove him. Could be alright if you cheat him out reliably.

Regisaur Alpha: Neat to make a token copy of, but just under the bar on his own.

This is all in no particular order.

Precon artifacts ( Idol of Oblivion , Mimic Vat , Soul Foundry , Lightning Greaves ): Look at them. They do everything your deck wants to do.

Precon creatures:

Precon enchantments ( Song of the Worldsoul , Intangible Virtue ): The best populate and the best token anthem.

Precon Garruks ( Garruk, Primal Hunter ): Garruk.

Precon Sorceries ( Farseek , Hate Mirage ): Cheap ramp. Token copy maker, but for other people's creatures.

Assemble the Legion : So I heard you run doubling season. But really, you know what this does to games.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker : Splinter Twin backup. Makes infinite tapped kikis with helm, in case you needed that.

Huatli, Radiant Champion : Easy to gun for the emblem, with an alright mid ability

Nacatl War-Pride : Forcing blocks means the rest of your creatures get through, or that you can divvy up the copies to other players. Gets really crazy the next turn when you populate one of the tokens. Absolutely insane if you get an additional combat.

Heroic Intervention : Boring, but necessary

Teferi's Protection : Extra boring, but even more necessary since it's the only answer to biff out there that isn't countering it.

Selfless Spirit : Not as boring since you can make a token copy of it for repeat use.

Baloth Cage Trap : Wow, when does anyone play an artifact in edh?!?! stupid card

Sneak Attack : Cheats creatures out with haste at instant speed for one mana and puts them in the grave to seance afterwards.

Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift : Kind of an investment, but a permanent Seance with haste is no joke.

Survival of the Fittest : Puts big boys in grave, and any creature you want in hand.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : :)

ok thanks for coming to my ted talk bye

@Caerwyn: Already found 11 ideas to put in. Each w/ their own purpose of sacking. I suppose the fact I can't find something to Draw a card Via Saccing a Sap means I guess Utopia Mycon should be cut as mana regardless? What would be good here?:

Idol of Oblivion ?

Trading Post ?

Carnage Altar ?

Or is Fungal Plots fine?

Only after this will I feel ready to end this debate of Naya...
