Kenrith, the Returned King Discussion

enpc on Nivix Guildmage as a second …

2 weeks ago

Most people are familiar with the classic Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal infinite mana combo, however I have been wondering about running Nivix Guildmage as a backup to this in my Kenrith, the Returned King deck (King me! King me!). The main reason for this is that the deck has a very heavy reliance on Kenrith once it has assembled infinite mana to either draw to a win condition or pump creatures and turn sideways. In fact, every combo based win condition has to go through Kenrith.

This is fine for the most part, as having him as my commander means that I should have access to him most of the time (especially with infinite mana available). however, the thought of including Nivix Guildmage was two fold - the first was that he acts as an infinite mana combo piece with Dramatic Reversal, but also becomes an infinite mana sink to either copy any other spells in hand as well as loot the entire deck (which with infinite mana and Elixir of Immortality can form other win conditions).

The question is, is it worth making a slot for Nivix Guildmage, or are the odds of not having access to Kenrith low enough that it's not needed?

Hey asukadies, that's a good point. Personally I am fine with Golos and it seems my play group is as well... Kenrith, the Returned King is a great suggestion though. I will definitely add to my maybe board. Thanks for the suggestion!

So, just found out Golos was banned in EDH. Not good news for any one.

Kenrith, the Returned King is a good substitute. No land fetch, per-say, but still viable.

Scytec as of right now I would say Kenrith, the Returned King but not sure. This was just a little brain excersize before bed.

I understand your point, Reflections of Littjara doesn't really help much in your deck. On the other hand, I'm happy that you considered to add Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer, as it could serve as a good game ender.

I am however confused as to why you don't like activated ability cost redutors, given that your commander has 4 activated abilities which could really benefit from it. Those activated abilities come in handy to do anything, especially drawing cards and recurring creatures from the graveyard, being also a very consistent form of draw engine, given that it is in the command zone for you to cast whenver you need. With 2 cost reductors in play you can draw 1 card for at instant speed, not something to snuff about. If you plan on changing Kenrith, the Returned King for another commander, I agree that those cards would instead be of much less use.

Happy brewing!

K1ngMars txs for ideas Still not sure if im going to take out Skullport Merchant or not yet with all the treasure I'm hoping on making he'll be a nice source of draw power with only other one being Rhystic Study and the couple clue token makers, as for the ability reduction cards it's just not worth putting them into my deck there are only 4 creatures that would be able to use there effects, 2 if you take out merchant like you suggested and if you replace Kenrith, the Returned King (I choose Kenrith because Golos is banned) with another 5-color commander, so yeah not really worth adding them. As for Reflections I'm not running tribal and there are only 5 humans, 4 pirates, 3 dragons and 2 elves other than that no one shares a type I just don't see it pulling it weight. I did add Brudiclad it a nice addition to the deck. But i I'll feel more comfortable with 33-34 lands a minimum so need to find so weaker cards to cut so i add more lands

With the banning and reasoning regarding Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, I wonder whether other goodstuff commanders like Kenrith, the Returned King and Chulane, Teller of Tales will suffer the same fate.

The reasons for banning Golos just feel ...weak. Like where did they get the data to support this? I see 1 Golos deck in my meta. Sure it is strong without much effort but so is Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Kenrith, the Returned King, and Sisay, Weatherlight Captain.

I guess I'll take the opportunity to play worldfire but I'm not going to tell people they can't play Golos.
