Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs Discussion

Chompythebeast on Queen Marchesa

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are must-runs in black, but maybe belong on your "Sideboard" for now. Diabolic Intent is also super good with tokens and might be cheap enough to run outright. Enlightened Tutor has enough targets in your deck also.

Other general bombs: Catastrophe (an incredible wipe in general, often slept upon), Axis of Mortality (wtf why does nobody run this, you should exercise your queenly authority and tell people that their life total now belongs to the crown), Solemn Simulacrum (ramp in non-green, though sadly in the same slot as your gen at 4 mana), Vedalken Orrery (surprise! always good), Exquisite Blood (biiiig time lifegain, can be a ridiculous difference maker)

Nobles: Falkenrath Aristocrat, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. I dunno though. At least the Aristocrat is a hawt mamma.

Tokens: Anger, Filth (combos huge with anyone playing Urborg, or even just any black deck), Archetype of Aggression (Trample combos really well with Deathtouch, since you only need to deal one damage to the creature to be lethal and the rest of the damage tramples over), Archetype of Finality, Street Riot, Berserkers' Onslaught, Rage Reflection, Brave the Sands (Vigilance also combos really well First Strike + Death Touch, as does being able to block multiple creatures—basically a wall effect like Norn's Annex), Eldrazi Monument (very cool with token generation), Goblin War Drums, Intimidation, Mirror Entity, Nahiri, Storm of Stone (cutie Nahiri!), Radiant Destiny, Silverwing Squadron (token time), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Goads, pretty damn good card, seems popular in Marchesa decks), Skullclamp (big time card draw for your 1/1 tokens), Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (another wall/token generator), Anointed Procession (double tokens!)

Other Royal Shit: Dreadhorde Invasion (creates Armies (fun flavor), tokens, Lifelink potential), Mobilized District (makes Citizen land, big flavor), Giant Killer (removal + Peasant + taps), Sengir Autocrat (SERFS!!), Righteous War (wild flavor, pretty solid evasion, gives your general Protection from Black AND White, could actually be a huge sleeper card), Stronghold Assassin (also an Assassin, obviously)

Powerful Women & Bad Bitches: Imposing Sovereign (also a Noble), Linden, the Steadfast Queen (also a noble), Agent of Masks (also an Advisor + "Aristocrats" staple), Diaochan, Artful Beauty (also an Advisor, could be neat with Hexproof lol), Masako the Humorless (also an Advisor, also fucking savage holy shit look at her), Orzhov Advokist (I know you've got it in the Maybelist, but it's so on-theme and it may or may not be better than Norn's Annex), Teysa Karlov (also an Advisor, great for tokens, you already have her other baller version), Etali, Primal Storm (I dunno, Elder, he's good), Zetalpa, Primal Dawn (same as before, also she's probably female so yeah), Massacre Girl (also an Assassin), Avatar of Woe, Silent Assassin (also a sexy Assassin), Thorn of the Black Rose (also an Assassin, themey, weak though, I suppose), Adriana, Captain of the Guard (wild with wide/tokens), angelic field marshall, Dark Impostor (also an Assassin), Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Stoneforge Mystic (big time with equipments, seriously some formats have called for her to be banned she's such a bad girl) Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Twilight Prophet (woah)

Tax/Bones: Kambal, Consul of Allocation (seriously amazing, most Marchesa decks run it, also an Advisor), Sheoldred, Whispering One, Urabrask the Hidden, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Pontiff of Blight (biiig beef, Marchesa controls the church), Wound Reflection (serious finisher, should really consider), Dictate of Erebos, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Fate Unraveler, Ankh of Mishra, Polluted Bonds (Ankh of Mishra on steroids, actually pretty broken card overall, probably should strongly consider it)

Multiplayer Shenanigans: Scandalmonger, Warmonger, and Wishmonger (wild times, probably too wild but they can be game finishers in weird ways); Varchild's War-Riders, Assault Suit, Goblin Assassin (also an Assassin), Embereth Skyblazer

Auras/Equipment: Kusari-Gama (super savage with Deathtouch), Helm of the Host (big theme on the flavor text, also a great card in general), Tenza, Godo's Maul, Angelic Destiny, Argentum Armor, Battle Mastery, Blackblade Reforged (a gen-equiping classic), Blessing of Leeches (Instant-speed free regeneration? This is another sleeper card, and it even has an amazing feminie art), Shadowspear, Colossus Hammer (kinda amazing with your gen), Embercleave, Whispersilk Cloak (you know Marches owns one of these), Fireshrieker (beefer)

Joe_Ken_ on Gideon holds the Front Line

Some cards you should really want are stuff that will make it harder to deal with your planeswalker and walkers that will make more tokens.

Sphere of Safety is great for a high enchantment deck like this one. Ghostly Prison and Propaganda are also good, but won’t protect your walkers.

Dovin, Grand Arbiter makes some flying tokens and can get close to his ultimate range real easy.

Dovin Baan has a little defensive utility and card draw, but I am recommending him since if he gets his ultimate off then there is now way you shouldn’t win.

Narset, Parter of Veils will turn off opponents card draw.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs can make attacks harder or produce a nice chump blocker.

Anointed Procession is probably one of the best cards you can have with your token producers in the deck.

It wouldn't be too hard, it's just a matter of the die-hard Kamigawa fans out there that know O-Kagachi is probably the best they're going to get for their theme deck in the foreseeable future.

Once you decide to build a forced combat deck, King Kami has to compete with Gahiji, Honored One, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, Thantis, the Warweaver, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Fumiko the Lowblood, and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs. You'd have to have a real reason to be 5-color to not play one of those, instead.

Hey, nice to see Luminarch Ascension with a pillowfort strategy :)

Consider expanding the pillowfort?

These cards slow down the game which you can benefit from since Boros is not as fast as other color combinations. Turn one Deafening with as many creatures as you have can give you an advantage. Many enchantments here are high CMC cards which means most likely you will not be casting more than one a turn. Boros can have a difficult time stopping opponents combos which these cards can help with because many combos involve casting cards.

Other cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Boros Guildgate
  • Scabland
  • Stone Quarry
  • Rampaging Ferocidon: not good with the Aureila + Helm combo or Ascension, etc.
  • Seraph of the Sword
  • Everdawn Champion
  • Serra's Blessing
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Damping Sphere
  • Leyline of Sanctity
  • Warmonger Hellkite

Good luck with your deck.

DemonDragonJ on Ideas for a Kynaios and ...

5 months ago

I am planning to build an EDH deck with Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis as the general, so I would be very interested to hear any ideas for such a deck that anyone here can offer to me.

The purpose of the deck will be to ostensibly assist the other players and influence them into attacking each other while avoiding attacking me, until I have sufficient resources to defeat everyone, or, more ideally, for the other players to eliminate each other until I have only one opponent, whom I can then defeat.

Cards such as Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Gahiji, Honored One, or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight shall encourage my opponents to attack each other and discourage them from attacking me. Cards such as Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, and Windborn Muse will make it unprofitable to attack me. Cards such as Collective Voyage, Minds Aglow, or Tempt with Discovery will make other players wish to keep me alive for as possible, so that they can continue to benefit from my presence.

What does everyone else say about this? What are some ideas or suggestions for an EDH deck with Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis as its general?

Fumiko the Lowblood and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs are the first cards I thought of when I read your description, so I'm surprised not to see them. I'd definitely get Gahiji, Honored one in the main board, as well. Duelist's Heritage is also a fun one, since it activates on EACH player's turn, allowing you to politic big swings at others. This isn't really my style of deck, though, so I'd check out the EDHREC page for forced combat decks.

I'm going through scryfall right now for triggers that mileva could double, and looking at cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , doubling damage triggers actually seems worse. I'll try to upload a hypothetical EDH list for Mileva. Wann get linked there?
