Maralen of the Mornsong Discussion

I've been eyeing this deck for a while, so I guess its about time I commented. I remember you considering Opposition Agent , since it has some pretty absurd words on it. If you do find space for it, what do you think about its interaction with Maralen of the Mornsong ? I haven't had enough of a chance to test out how easy it is to stop her from helping opponents, (what with sac outlets and all), but I feel like the absolute lockdown these two can bring is worth it. Plus, they can both be fetched by Hulk. Also, since you've mentioned how useful Liliana, Defiant Necromancer is for making opponents discard, what are you thoughts on Mindslicer ?

psionictemplar Gotcha! Just making sure. Fun deck idea.
When I've tried playing Maralen of the Mornsong in modern, I've used the Mindlock Orb lock, and always found myself controlling the game relatively well, but ended up dying from my own turn clock before my opponent lol. Maybe Ob Nixilis, Unshackled + Aven Mindcensor is the solution to that instead of just locking out entirely. I'll have to give it a try

Sadly Ashiok, Dream Render does not prevent your opponent from searching their library from Maralen of the Mornsong 's trigger. The ability reads "Spells and abilities your opponents control." You control Maralen of the Mornsong and her ability. This does, however, work with Aven Mindcensor which you're already running, and Mindlock Orb , but that's much harder to build around.
Some interesting things to consider if you go that route though is more cards like Dark Confidant , that "put cards in your hand," instead of drawing. Such as Sleight of Hand , Sword-Point Diplomacy , Narset, Parter of Veils , Karn, Scion of Urza , etc.

If you want to play salty in black, it's hard to argue against Opposition Agent , it's a really, really bad time for many decks. I had to rebuild my cEDH deck to deal with that card, and it's still very much a work in progress. Toss in something like Maralen of the Mornsong and you have some very salty enemies.
Wheel of Torture is probably better than The Rack in a multiplayer game, but I'd expect it to get nuked quickly. Not sure if Necrogen Mists or Bottomless Pit would fit your plan, but they do play nicely if you can get one out. BP can be back breaking.
You have 2 copies of Mire in Misery btw?

Some Commander Legends updates:
uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.
LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.
Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

Rainbowjuice77 - the only one of them that can search multiply libraries (including yours) is Bitter Ordeal, since you can change target for every copy of Bitter Ordeal, but you need to trigger it somehow (I use it in my Syr Konrad, the Grim's For the Void deck with Desecrated Tomb + Phyrexian Altar + Tortured Existence
as a main engine for different stuff).
There is a lot of cards that can be really sweet with Opposition Agent, the most casual use would be to use Op.Agent just on its own, without anything else like Maralen of the Mornsong, etc..
And with Wishclaw Talisman I would definitely run Homeward Path :D
