Marisi, Breaker of the Coil

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil

Legendary Creature — Cat Warrior

Your opponents can’t cast spells during combat.

Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, goad each creature that player controls (Until your next turn, those creatures attack each combat if able and attack a player other than you if able.)

Rosheen Meanderer, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, Jagged-Scar Archers, Soltari Visionary, Drumhunter, Xenagos, God of Revels could all fit here.

Drop the infect or go all in on it. If people see one it will be an Infect deck to them forever.

Something with Wither might be a good add

I would have suggested Rienne, because of the reasons you gave. Considering you really want your creatures to attack and get through, I'd like to put your attention to Marisi, Breaker of the Coil. His abilities don't interact with your secret commanders, but it's nice to have a way to tap down opponents.

Rienne, Angel of Rebirth is a really solid option, especially if you want the potential of winning on commander damage, but there is plenty of recursion in G, what with Regrowth effects.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Tana, the Bloodsower would be a pretty sweet combo. Ghired, Conclave Exile would work great with Delina, Wild Mage and all those other Flamerush Rider effects- imagine having several Wulfgars out! Marisi, Breaker of the Coil prevents opponents from messing with your combats and makes your opponents tap out their creatures.

Hey all, its been a day. Havent posted in probs a year or two, but Im all into the new Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant right now and wanted to discuss some potential routes to take him, and just how great he really is. e I dont mean 'Great' as in super competitive, I mean it just that he does alotta sweet stuff and is a pretty unique and cool commander.

At anyrate...

Karazikar is like the illegitimate lovechild of Edric, Spymaster of Trest and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser or maybe Marisi, Breaker of the Coil. Comparisons can be made either way.

What makes him great? Card advantage and heat loss(if you want to call it that), and board control(indirectly pushing aggro).

The card draw is a bit of a double edged sword obviously, but anyone who has played or played against Edric knows that this is a pretty minor drawback if your deck can take more advantage of it. The lifeloss that comes along with it is for the most part negligible to your opponents, but can add up for us as we are getting far more triggers than other players.

Karazikar really shines in his goad ability however. Tapping down a potential blocker on swing helps to ensure your critter will connect, and also leaves the opponent more open to attacks from other players. The tapping ability itself is great and makes minor evasive abilities such as flying, menace, skulk, etc, that much more likely to work.

The goad itself is pretty self explanatory, but I will point out that I do quite enjoy the interactive board control that it and the tapping ability combine to create. We can in a large way force our opponents to play how we want, controlling the table, but in a way that still allows players to "do stuff" and interact with each other. By tapping down some creatures, force goading others, etc, we can really direct the flow of the game, and I dig that.

And I mean, he has square girth at 5/5 for 5. Nice.

Now Ive always loved goad. I have both Grenzo and Marisi goad decks. Both had different routes to gettin that goad on, Grenzo relying on going wide with the addition of some evasion like menace on a bunch of gobbos. Marisi was more reliant on getting that guaranteed connection with a bunch of cheap shadow and flying. Marisi was far superior. But Karazikar offers all sorts of new potential avenues to accomplish his goals.

Karazikar can go wide very easily due to the tapping ability, he can swing evasively and safely with abilities like flying and shadow, or he can just be sorta 'Goodstuffs with evasion' build with value creatures and cards that add evasion.

Id love to hear your thoughts on Karazikar, how youd build him, and any nifty tech or cards youd add. :)

I want to partner Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant with Marisi, Breaker of the Coil for the king of all goad and forced combat decks.

Thanks d_iros! I'd say that Karazikar and Disrupt Decorum are both meta-call inclusions, kinda similarly to how Author of Shadows was. My playgroup spans the Casual Spectrum lol, so board states can get creature heavy at times. There is a Marisi, Breaker of the Coil deck in our meta that does fairly well for that reason. I've run Disrupt Decorum in another deck to decent enough effect. In the times its been played, Disrupt Decorum had a pseudo board-wipe effect, thinned out boards, and usually bought the caster some time to assemble a combo or re-establish their board.

I think if I had to pick between the two, I'd likely cut Karazikar first. I figured the mutual draw would be incentivizing enough to keep some heat off me, and its ability to tap & Goad could help open up some lanes for my smaller attackers.

Cutting Karazikar could give Chandra, Fire Artisan a spot to land back, or even Blasphemous Act, which usually comes down for 1 mana in our games lol.

Dread is No Mercy on a body.

Stormtide Leviathan and Blazing Archon simply say "you may not"

Archangel of Tithes and Windborn Muse both have similar effects that make easier to attack someone else, while Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker and Phyrexian Obliterator drive that point home even further.

But if you want the carrot rather than the stick, there's Edric, Spymaster of Trest and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant to offer up cards for attacking your opponents instead. And related to Karazikar's goading ability Grenzo, Havoc Raiser can help you keep your opponent open if you're going wide, and Marisi, Breaker of the Coil is that same ability but even stronger as you only need to connect with one creatre.

Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion make attacking you pointless unless you can also deal with them.

Sevinne, the Chronoclasm make an excellent blocker, and both Angus Mackenzie and Lady Evangela offer fog and fog-light effects on your commmander.

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails works similarly to Mother of Runes if you have the mana to pour into it, and Giver of Runes will protect something else in a way similar to mom.

Pairing together first strike with deathtouch is always a good method too, Glissa, the Traitor has this on her own, but it doesn't take much work for Kathril, Aspect Warper to do the same.
