Man-o'-War Discussion

Last_Laugh on Animar Commander (Big Eldrazi)

1 month ago

Trying to keep your budget in mind I have several suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category. My main advice is if an effect is available on a creature, use it over other versions (i.e. Stratus Dancer over Negate).

Turn 2 Animar: Birds of Paradise , Wild Cantor , and Utopia Sprawl are all options.

Ramp: Lose your artifacts and look into several options like Rattleclaw Mystic (doubles as a combo piece with bounce enablers), Cloud of Faeries , and Peregrine Drake .

Bounce Enablers: Equilibrium and Temur Sabertooth for repeatable bounce. Shrieking Drake , Dream Stalker , and Man-o'-War for single target (including self).

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not cheap overall but Animar has several good options for reasonable prices. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

multimedia on Yarok, the Desecrated

2 months ago

Hey, well done on a budget, but what's with the manabase?

I understand this is budget, but you can't possibly think that 36 basic lands for a three color deck is any where near competitive; deck is in the competitive hub. Where's Command Tower ? The majority of rest of the deck other than Disentomb and Raise Dead is built with a competitive mindset therefore I know you have good card sense with the budget that you have. Even on a low budget you can include playable dual lands:

My advice is if budget is a concern cut some expensive price cards to add some playable dual lands. Grim Tutor and Heroic Intervention are two cuts to consider since these cards can be replaced by lower price options Lazotep Plating and Profane Tutor . On a budget Fauna Shaman is not worth it since it could be replaced with a less expensive price tutor Shared Summons .

Consider a backup win condition that doesn't require that you draw your entire deck and hope that Oracle or Maniac live/resolve? Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Venser, Shaper Savant and Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be infinitely blinked or cast for three different win conditions. Peregrine Drake + Venser, Shaper Savant + Yarok, the Desecrated is another infinite mana combo.

Consider budget backups to all your main combo creatures? Backups are helpful because without them the combo is very fragile, easy for an opponent to disrupt.

Good luck with your deck.

Duplicant is a great removal tool - exiling creatures in mono-blue is strong

Meteor Golem offers another removal tool as needed

Glen Elendra Archmage is a good counter tool, that is good with flicker effects but isn't dependent on them

Merfolk Trickster and Jeering Homunculus are good creature cleanup tools

Man-o'-War and Nevermaker are good all around for bounce

Orvar, the All-Form lets you clone flicker targets from instants

Nephalia Smuggler acts a backup flicker effect

Voracious Greatshark is a decent countermagic effect

Tempest Caller can lock out a dangerous opponent without needing to target specific creatures

Shipwreck Dowser is another return instant effect

Slithermuse is great for card draw, and Watcher for Tomorrow digs 4 cards deep

and finally, Overtaker becomes downright abusive if you stack the EoT triggers - you take creature's permanently

A cool thing about this partner pair is that if Sakashima copies Kodama, you can replay a creature like AEthersnipe endlessly by bouncing itself to hand and alternating between the general's triggers to replay it (bypassing the "if it wasn't put onto the battlefield with this ability" restriction since it was the other general's ability that replayed it). In this example, you would also put all permanents costing 6 or less from your hand into play using the other kodama trigger. Toss in something like Garruk's Packleader and you'll be drawing and playing your entire deck.

You might like these too: Elemental Bond, Garruk's Uprising, Soul of the Harvest, Angler Drake, AEther Adept, Man-o'-War, Mist Raven, Separatist Voidmage, Aven Surveyor, Kiri-Onna, Voidwielder, Hoverguard Sweepers, Altar of the Brood, Galecaster Colossus (in the above-mentioned combo, tap a bounce wizard before returning itself. this way the colossus can bounce all your opps' nonland permanents)

If have some suggestions:

HELLcaster19 on Bra-let's-go

I like the decks theme of tokens and the life gain sub-theme. In terms of protection and removal, I would point you to my own Brago deck.

Controlled Flickers

He is more of a control deck (or at least, tries to be) until I can get my little engines online to go for the combo win.

Venser, Shaper Savant, Man-o'-War and Exclusion Mage and some neat creatures that work like the Reflector Mage that you already run. Venser can also be used to bounce any other permanent, which includes lands, if you want to be that guy!

Venser is also a beautiful addition, as it can also put spells back into players hands when it enters. This allows you to stop the uncounterable spells, along with Narset's Reversal.

I hope there are some cards in my list that you may consider adding to your own for more protection. You have a couple in your list that I will be considering for mine. +1 for another fellow Brago player!!

Whirl on List of Bugs and Feature …

This is a minor inconvenience, but Man-o'-War can't be searched through Quick Add in the Deck Builder. I guess it's a matter of short words and the hyphens?

channelfireball12345 on EDH-29: Maelstrom Wanderer

1 year ago

Wild Wanderer seems somewhat weak. If you're really intent on having a creature with that effect in addition to the Farhaven Elf already present in your list, I'd recommend Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. Yes, they can both be cascaded into by Maelstrom Wanderer, if that's the manner in which you're aiming to utilize them, though that wouldn't appear to be the case, and yes, Nissa only grabs basic Forests as opposed to any manner of basic, yet that seems to be the basic land you're running the most of in the first place. In my opinion, Nissa's a pretty significant upgrade compared to Wild Wanderer. Another suggestion for a card with which one could potentially replace Wild Wanderer, though it doesn't ramp you (though who still wants to be ramping one pip with an otherwise low-impact four drop anyway?) would be Man-o'-War.
