Last_Laugh on Animar, Soul of Combo's

3 weeks ago

Spellseeker and Neoform are both good on their own but they also enable the most efficient combo line in Animar. It only requires , 4 life, Imperial Recruiter in hand, and Animar only needs 2 counters. Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph. Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter and looks up Spellseeker. Spellseeker looks up Neoform. Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue. Self bounce the Statue until Animar is double all of your opponents life totals and use the Statue's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Weird Harvest is another effect to look up Statue/Ballista for the win.

Oof_Magic I think the reason for karn staying isn't which piece is more powerful, it's which piece is more breakable. Fact is any deck trying to play lattice isn't doing it for color fixing in modern, they are doing it for broken reasons. Sure back when legacy lists were thinking Aluren/Imperial Recruiter is the only possible deck people weren't claiming the tutor was the issue, it was the card the engine broken. We have other one-sided hate that works with lattice.

In the end aluren was stopped when delver lists started with full anti-combo and dominated, which I would hope for modern too, but we simply don't have the force of will to interact.

3 mana cascade spell into trickery, counter the 3 mana spell, hit emrakul or ulamog or kozilek or cascade spell, if cascade spell, repeat, if eldrazi titan, win. Only failcase is hitting trickery.

At the time the list ran 8 cascade spells and 8 ways of ramping. The ramp was simian spirit guide, another failcase at the time, and gemstone caverns, which only worked occasionally. List was extremely fast and consistent at casting 1-3 eldrazi in the first few turns of the game. Omniscience was run to cast them from the hand if you drew into eldrazi.

The deck now has sharpness agent, so 4 less ramp, 4 more cascade. Less speed more consistency

I've just got it - Imperial Recruiter has been printed into modern, searches out kiki while being a massive value engine with flicker/clone. Swap a single Felidar Guardian in and you have your 3 drop to pin the thing together.

unstable_anomaly on Full Metal Alchemy (Osgir, the Reconstructor)

Hey Gsanna, thanks for stopping by. Really appreciate the comment/ upvote and all the nice words. Happy to hear you enjoy playing the deck. It's definitely one of my personal favorites at the moment.

To answer your question, I do not play Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a companion. Reason being it would be way too difficult to meet the requirement in order to play it as a companion. It's mainly in the deck for the infinite mana combo with Basalt Monolith, but also to help reduce the activation cost on Osgir, the Reconstructor's second ability.

I do really like the idea of using Metalworker in place of Dockside Extortionist. I honestly didn't even noticed either of those combos, so thank you for bringing that to my attention. I avoided using Metalworker and Phyrexian Dreadnought in my original draft of the deck because of their high price tag, but now the more I think about it, the more I think they may be worth it.

I am currently playtesting Recruiter of the Guard and Imperial Recruiter in place of Swiftfoot Boots and Platinum Angel based off another suggestion, and have been quite happy with the results. I may look into playtesting Metalworker and Phyrexian Dreadnought in place of Dockside Extortionist and either Recruiter of the Guard or Imperial Recruiter.

Thanks again for the contributions, much appreciated. Cheers.

TerraBlaze on Feather Redeems Boros in EDH [Primer]

Heya! Just wanted to try Feather out as a Commander and your deck seems like a ton of fun to play! Love the thought process and work you've done with this primer! I got some questions if you wouldnt mind (which ARE'NT about either Sunforger or Aurelia's Fury xD)? I do have a Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard which I feel kinda interested to add into the deck for tutoring key creatures like Storm-Kiln Artist, Monastery Mentor and other juicy stuff. Would it be a bad idea slotting in either of those two instead for Captain Ripley Vance and/or Velomachus Lorehold? Still I haven't tried the deck out at all yet, how do you feel those two cards play-out for you atm?

looks fun to play. I am also too poor for Wheel of Fortune lol. You might consider the Conspicuous Snoop line? Although it might not be very consistent without green's creature tutor. Red does have Imperial Recruiter and Goblin Matron to find Goblin Recruiter. The line works as follows:

1 Goblin Recruiter fetches the pile (top) Conspicuous Snoop Torch Courier Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (bottom).

2 Draw a card.

3 Play Conspicuous Snoop.

4 use Conspicuous Snoop to cast Torch Courier and sac Torch Courier to give Conspicuous Snoop haste.

5 Create an arbitrary large number of Conspicuous Snoop using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker activated ability.

6 Use the last untapped Conspicuous Snoop to copy Goblin Recruiter.

7 Goblin Recruiter's ETB puts Mogg Fanatic on top .

8 Sac Conspicuous Snoops for an arbitrary large amount of damage.

Scytec on Izzet worth it?

Imperial Recruiter and Pyre of Heroes could potentially be options, recruiter much more so than Pyre.

Platinum Angel - You're the second or third person to tell me to cut Platinum Angel . It's somewhat of a pet card of mine, but I think everyone might be right. It's probably time I cut it.

Doubling Cube - I would agree Doubling Cube can be slow sometimes, but I've really enjoyed using it. This deck can ramp pretty hard and being able to double up on that mana has proven more than useful quite a few times. The last game I played I was able to make 20 copies of Lotus Bloom , sac them all for 60 mana, and then use Doubling Cube to make over 100 mana. Which then allowed me to make 20 Platinum Angel 's and 20 Lightning Greaves , winning me the game through combat damage. It can also be used as a janky combo piece to create infinite mana. It may not be well suited for a deck that tries to win by turn 5/6, but for a deck that aims to win turns 8/9/10 it's worth the slot in my opinion.

Swiftfoot Boots and/or Whispersilk Cloak - Much like you I would probably cut the Swiftfoot Boots , but keep the Whispersilk Cloak .

Stoneforge Mystic - I'm not entirely sold on this one, but I'll add it to the maybeboard and keep it in mind moving forward.

All in all I'll probably keep the cube but cut Platinum Angel / Swiftfoot Boots for Recruiter of the Guard / Imperial Recruiter . Or maybe keep Swiftfoot Boots and cut Pyroblast , but I'm curious to hear your thoughts on that?
