Marisi, Breaker of the Coil

Crow-Umbra on Isshin for a Fight

2 days ago

My personal playgroup implemented a house rule that introduces Monarch to each game, only if there isn't a Monarch deck at the table. Basically, the last person in turn order becomes the Monarch at the end of their 3rd turn. It's made our games a lot more fun and dynamic, but it's also removed my personal need for any Monarch cards in my decks.

I've tried pillow fort effects in my deck and eventually moved on to just lean as much into aggro and group slug as possible. Personal preference thing for sure. Pillow Fort effects can put in work in the right metas.

You could potentially swap Read the Bones for Gruesome Realization. Not getting the Scry 2 is a bit of a bummer, but the trade off for the modal option isn't too bad.

One of my friends in my meta has decks for Kardur, Doomscourge and Marisi, Breaker of the Coil respectively. Kardur can get nasty with just a bit of upgrading, especially with a Conjurer's Closet or reanimation effects. That friend is moving away, so I might not see those commanders as often, LGS variety aside.

Last_Laugh on Your Cheap Obscure Overperformers?

3 weeks ago

What are some cheap (let's say $2 and under) cards you've added (and to whom) to your decks that've way outperformed their price tag? Cards you won't find under your commander on edhrec sorta thing.

Scepter of Celebration in and on Prossh, Skyraider of Kher. You just sac all your Kobolds so Prossh hits like a truck and spits out more tokens. This is NUTS with Aristocrats/Impact Tremors effects.

Aerial Extortionist in Marisi, Breaker of the Coil. When you have a Goad chain going... this guy consistently connects and removes anything problematic.

Speaking of Goad... but better. Kardur, Doomscourge in Marchesa, the Black Rose is a hilarious etb to abuse and addresses a weakness to 1 shot kills like Xenagos.

Seize the Spotlight in Marchesa, the Black Rose will always draw 3 essentially free. I also started running it in Prossh (basically any red deck with consistent sac outlets).

Scapegoat in Edgar Markov. It doubles as an anti-wrath card that keeps you out of topdeck mode and pseudo dodges -X-X, exile, tuck, sac, etc. AND if you run Purphoros, God of the Forge it doubles as a finisher.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin, Two Heavens as One [Politic]

3 weeks ago

Lol totally understandable EvolutionBaby. A friend in my playgroup has decks for Marisi, Breaker of the Coil and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant(formerly Kardur, Doomscourge). Once those decks can effectively lock everyone into a Goad cycle, it can be a challenge to overcome.

I think the Initiative and Monarch cards will definitely help with encouraging politics. Since our playgroup introduced Monarch to all of our games, I've heard some variation of, "Can I hit you with my 1/1 to get Monarch? I need to draw answers to deal with So&So" at least once per game.

I haven't tried Initiative yet, but it seems like an interesting mix of Monarch and Dungeoneering.

Gleeock on Alternative themes/gimmick EDH deck ideas

4 weeks ago

I have some functional decks, where the theme runs outside of the usual lines of play for the given commander or color combo.

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil but enchantress can utilize some unusually aggressive enchantments compared to what you usually think with enchantress... Think things like Earnest Fellowship

Breena, the Demagogue lifelink, vigilance weenies with a planeswalker & proliferate subtheme. This is such a hodgepodge, but it ends up being so badass. It is definitely not Atraxa-walkers. Really nice combo of aggression, card draw, & Orzhov-walkers are kindof a unique gimmick to this commander.

Gleeock on How Many EDH Decks Do …

1 month ago

12 - My Home Depot tool box fits that many :)

In my regular group there are a couple of dads, a new dad, & college students. There is a variety of high quality proxies (easy to make) & a variety of budgets. Pretty much no rhyme or reason on which decks have the most expensive cards. My more competitive deck has some proxied duals even though I have the actual duals in a few power tiers below that deck :) I don't think I have that much time to organize decks very often anymore.

Of the 12 I only get time enough to play maybe 5 of them regularly though. The 5 that I come back to are:

Kardur, Doomscourge

Breena, the Demagogue

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil

Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip

Atla Palani, Nest Tender - Direct damage "tribal" - near cEDH

Now that I know what I like, I am starting to sell off my overstock, mostly at lower price to friends & coworkers because I don't really need to lose out to the middle-man LGS & I don't need store credit for the occasional single that I pick up

Gleeock on Beatng a wild +1/+1 Player?

2 months ago

+1/+1 counters means nothing to goad. Just go Kardur, Doomscourge or Marisi, Breaker of the Coil on him & let his creatures go ham on everyone else... just groupslug enough to clean up.

Then you don't have to worry about controlling growing creatures.. Unless he has a lot of lifegain subtheme.

Gleeock on J.N.R. Token - The Fellowship of the King

3 months ago

Yeah, that makes sense. You use him in the way I envisioned him then. I use Marisi, Breaker of the Coil similarly, whereas alot of decks seem to force the idea of having that commander out front-&-center for multiple turns, I view that as a less controllable scenerio than just casting the commander as more of a time-is-right sorcery. The big difference would be timing since your guy is actually a finisher, but the idea is still similar.

Well, I will recommend Ohran Frostfang instead then :)

Gleeock on Favorites and Bests

Haha! legendofa I had this feeling that you were at heart!

Well, I tend to rock the . I like to make the whole table bleed, put a clock on it, & also throw a party while I'm at it. Make the sitback & controllsters realize too late that their life totals can be important. All, the while I am rocking expendable threats that leave my opponents feeling empty inside when they try to control me too much :) .

I feel "strongest", while being subjective, is probably .

As for It can go suck a lemon. Blue with its' thinks I'm clever... but I just have catch-all overpowering gimmicks. Nothing clever about extra turns or nixing out any spell in the game with few exceptions - lazy Jace personifies his dud color well... I'm supposed to sly-guy, lets outwi....nah, guess it'll just be unstoppable mind-control FTW. If I would wave a wand I would remove all but the most expensive extra-turns spells with self-exiling. I would burn the counterspells. Lord knows doesn't need pre-emptive removal with WoTC deciding to give it efficient & recurrent exile options. My opinion on this always stands though: make better punishment options so that catch-alls are no longer catch-alls.

Not really sure on aura's, never use 'em much.

I'm not much of a tribe guy either, but I would say I like Warriors the best. Though Najeela, the Blade-Blossom ruins this for me a bit, since she feels like a WUBRG strictly-better warrior commander. But I do love some of the static abilities on warriors Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil are beauties. Warlocks are quickly becoming a favorite for me too Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip is just too wacky to get a handle on.

I sit at 38-40 lands.. I tend to run alot of spells that destroy all rocks & dorks so it makes sense for me that I hit curve more with lands or use-it-or-lose it options.
