Crow_Umbra on In what color to combo …

1 month ago

What kind of combo are you looking for, or what is most fun for you? Every color combo has a plethora of combos available to them. I'd recommend checking out commanderspellbook.com as a resource to look up combos across different color combos. It explains in a pretty clear step by step manner how each combo is achieved.

Personally, I like to play combos where each of the components can stand on its own, so they don't necessarily feel like "dead" cards without the other pieces.

Some of my favorite combos:

This combo can be achieved with Leonin Relic-Warder and Animate Dead/ or Necromancy/ or Dance of the Dead. On their own, each can function independently & effectively, or be combined with something like Bastion of Remembrance or an Impact Tremors effect to drain out the table.

Again, on their own, each piece is fully functional and can stand on its own. In combination the two pieces can potentially lead to multiple combat steps.

I'd say figure out which colors and archetypes you like playing most, then search around on Spellbook to see if there are any combos that you might like. Just about every color has some kind of combo available to it, but each one might fit your playstyle or budget better than others.

I haven't played reanimator in a while, so my suggestions might be a bit rusty. I see that you have some potential combo pieces like free sac outlets like Carrion Feeder & Phyrexian Altar, Karmic Guide, & various your different aristocrats pingers. Do you currently have any dedicated combo lines? Could be helpful to list them in your primer if you do.

In regards to the pieces you do have, I have a few suggestions:

  • Leonin Relic-Warder - A temp speedbump in terms of removal, but can also combo off with the Animate Dead & Necromancy you already have in the 99. Combo explanation if you're unfamiliar with it. It's fairly useful on its own, so doesn't really feel like a dead draw without the other pieces.

  • Reveillark - Another combo piece that can pop off with Karmic Guide & pretty much all of the free sac outlets and aristocrats pingers you have in your deck already. On its own, it can potentially reanimate about 20 of the 37 creatures you currently have in your deck. Combo explanation again if you're unfamiliar with any of the Reveillark lines. Also suggesting since you have it in your Maybe board already.

Crow_Umbra on Burakos's Crew

Burakos, Party Leader is such a fun commander. I really enjoy the flexibility of having all the party creature types already in the command zone. I have a suggestions if you're interested:

  • If it's in your budget, I'd recommend adding Roaming Throne. It has some incredible flexibility in this deck, and will always work with Burakos.

  • There is an infinite combo option that can fit pretty seamlessly into this deck. It utilizes Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + an aristocrat like Zulaport Cutthroat/Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim. I like this combo because Relic-Warder and the reanimation pieces can all work as separate pieces, and don't really feel like dead draws outside of the combo.

  • Might be more of a meta dependent choice, but Assault Intercessor is one of my favorite Warrior options for the deck. Admittedly, I do encounter aristocrats strats in my meta often enough to play this.

  • Kutzil's Flanker is another newer option with Flash and graveyard hate as some enticing options. Another more meta dependent choice.

  • I'd recommend checking out Emergence Zone and Scout's Warning as means of playing creatures at instant speed. Most of the creatures in Burakos, Party Leader/Folk Hero decks tend to be fairly low to the ground. Helpful to get some additional cantrip-y draw on other players' turns.

I hope these suggestions are helpful. I'm down to chat through any others if you're open to it. Burakos/Folk Hero has a decent suite of creature options to fine-tune to different metas.

Spirits on ArahBo - Mon chat s'appelle Mitaine

MrHawtStuff,

You have lots of cat lords, Feline Sovereign, Kaheera, the Orphanguard, King of the Pride, etc. as well it works with self-modifiers like Loam Lion and Qasali Pridemage the new cat Sovereign Okinec Ahau can permanently +1/+1 counter your cats. Notably missing (in your maybeboard) Regal Caracal would give everyone lifelink too.

Glittering Lynx seems off, the isn't that disruptive for an opponent if it matters. I think you're trying to maximize your MV 1-drop cats, but Arcbound Mouser would give you a second Trained Caracal with upside instead. Lion Sash is also nice, but it is MV 2-drop.

The other new cat would be good: Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar, he could replace something like a vanilla Leonin Skyhunter or a mana sync like Bronzehide Lion or a really high cmc creature with low value like Jareth, Leonine Titan who probably is a win-more at MV6 that won't turn a loss into a win, really he MV7 to activate. Card in that MV slot has to be extremely impactful. Cats like Scrounging Bandar also work well with this new cat. Limiting interaction on your turn especially flashing in +3 spells (Indomitable Might) is really nice.

Leonin Relic-Warder is nice for controlling artifacts/enchantments and providing another MV2 cat.

Everybody Lives! gives another Heroic Intervention type effect.

Farseek is MV2 but I'm betting Harvest Season probably does more work at MV3. 35 lands seems like a lot for a low curve, maybe some low MV ramp like Talisman of Unity. Boseiju, Who Endures is a good forest but it's stupid expensive.

Rancor is a really nice trample/evasion enabler. Or like a Shadowspear or something which also helps out with Indestructibles blocking your cats. Pridemalkin is on a cat body, but don't like the MV3.

Mirri's Guile is okay, but a bit of a trap, way more value at MV2 with Sylvan Library

Song of the Dryads I get for locking out a commander but some instant interaction like Stroke of Midnight are usually more utility in more situations, might be a meta card though.

Eladamri's Call will bring up consistency to draw the finisher cats.

Cheers

I think for the most part your deck categories look fairly balanced. Something I noticed is that some of your token generation is a little slow or conditional. I think you could probably swap out Luminarch Ascension. It's incredibly telegraphed, and if you play in a more aggro meta, your playgroup may do what they can to prevent your Ascension from getting the counters it needs.

I think you could probably swap out Phyrexian Arena for Plumb the Forbidden, especially since you already have Black Market Connections. I love Plumb the Forbidden in my Isshin deck, which also has a creature token creation theme. Excellent response to removal, especially boardwipes, and refill your grip more than anyone else.

I think you could probably swap out Court of Grace for Kaya, Geist Hunter. She has some cool utility as another token doubler, and as a Deathtouch anthem. Additionally, I think you could swap out a basic land for Vault of the Archangel as another means to anthem up your token swarms.

If you are looking for more token producers: Hero of Bladehold, Adeline, Resplendent Cathar, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and Leonin Warleader are all excellent options that can also give your deck a bit more of an aggro edge.

If you're open to infinite combos, I'd recommend adding Leonin Relic-Warder and any combination of the following: Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and/or Necromancy. All 3 Auras can go infinite with Relic-Warder, and create an infinite loop of death triggers & ETB triggers. Here is an explanation of the combo. I think all 4 pieces could fit seamlessly into your deck.

Lastly, I think you could cut Vraan, Executioner Thane and Relic Vial, as they are the weakest of your Aristocrats effects, and you already have a decent volume of them; especially with consistent access to one in the command zone. Both are conditional/limited as to how they can trigger.

Babbacchio on Interaction between Leonin Relic-warder + …

1 year ago

I have on the battlefield Leonin Relic-Warder and I sac It (for example with Altar of Dementia ). Then, I cast Minion's Return with Flash ability. The creature returns on the battlefield and this triggers its ETB effect: I choose to exile the Aura, then I sac again the creature. So the Aura returns on the battlefield, and this makes the creature returns again, in an infinite loop. Is this working ? Thanks in advance for the answers.

Crow_Umbra on Alesha Aristocrats

1 year ago

Awesome! Alesha is a commander I loved & had a lot of fun playing. I retooled her about 2-3 times & tried out different sub themes.

Another suggestion I have is to maybe remove Murderous Redcap. On its own, it doesn't do much outside of the combo loop. If you like the combo loop it's a part of, then absolutely keep it. Your enjoyment matters most.

I would recommend checking out the Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead combo loop. In case you're unfamiliar with it, Commander Spellbook has a straightforward explanation. What's cool about this combo is that Dance of the Dead & Necromancy can be used in place of Animate Dead to the same effect.

Whats even cooler is that all 4 of those cards are independently good outside of the combo, & don't feel like dead draws. The coolest part is that those 3 reanimation spells take pressure off Alesha as being the reanimator that the deck flows thru, & now she's just part of a bigger reanimation package.

Lots of fun potential with Alesha builds. Hope you have fun with her

Sleepysherlock on Spell-Slinging Mardu Copies

Lot of my suggestions are leaning into tokens because Blood Avatar clearly wants that, and if i can find a spell that makes tokens than Extus will be happy too. Thats my idea.

Big Score, Unexpected Windfall, Blood for Bones, Rakdos Charm, Fiery Confluence, Crackle with Power, Storm King's Thunder, Bonus Round, Sram's Expertise, Electrodominance, Jaya Ballard, Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Assemble the Legion, Secure the Wastes, Call the Coppercoats, Fury Storm, Ashnod's Altar, Prosperous Partnership, Divine Visitation

Let's take a short break here, because you need better creatures. Creatures that have VALUE as you recast them over and over, maybe even discard outlets. I hate to say it (and i'm not going to list them) but Aristocrat creatures are ideal here because they are cheap, and gain life which can then be used to cast wild stuff like Bolas's Citadel.

Dragonmaster Outcast, Viscera Seer, Cathar Commando, Leonin Relic-Warder, Mondrak, Glory Dominus, Lagomos, Hand of Hatred, Pitiless Plunderer, Mahadi, Emporium Master, Woe Strider, Ophiomancer, Mayhem Devil, Children of Korlis, Insolent Neonate, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sengir Autocrat, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Sun Titan

Also if this just ins't the direction you wanna go thats ight
