Mesmeric Orb


Whenever a permanent becomes untapped, that permanent's controller mills a card (They put the top card of their library into their graveyard.)

OK here we go lol

Creature cuts: Archon of Sun's Grace, Composer of Spring, Courser of Kruphix, Doomwake Giant, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Nessian Wanderer, Nyx Weaver

Artifact cuts: Mesmeric Orb, Whip of Erebos

Enchantment cuts: Battle for Bretagard, Boon of the Spirit Realm, Cast Out, Exploration, Familiar Ground

Sorcery cuts: Extinguish All Hope, Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim

Instant cuts: None! Add things like Veil of Summer & Silence, though

I'd recommend that you replace all of those lands ramp spells that cost more than 2 with more mana rocks instead! Your guild signets (Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet & Golgari Signet) & talismans (Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Resilience & Talisman of Unity) are all better options since this isn't a Landfall deck.

Great suggestions Mr_Tobiah, thank you! All 3 of those cards have me spinning my wheels and I'm thinking on adding all 3...

  • Mesmeric Orb - I like that this card pulls double duty in getting Mimeo targets in my graveyard + seriously milling everyone else as they untap their lands etc. This will really punish the go wide token strats in my playgroup, heh.
  • Syr Konrad, the Grim - I was kind of iffy on this guy, but the 1 dmg to each opponent factor is pretty spicy, especially when paired with some of the splashier group mill cards (e.g. Maddening Cacophony or Mind Grind). Not a bad mana sink either.
  • Sepulchral Primordial - I think you're right! The ETB factor pairs well with my mill strat & the instant boon vs Sheoldred's slower grind makes a lot of sense here, good call.

    PSA is generally considered the best in the business. That said, there are plenty of other options - you can find a bunch of articles with a quick Google search comparing and reviewing each. That is probably a better way to decide which to use than just asking folks on a forum.

    Just doing a quick look, it appears a serialised Mesmeric Orb is only about $300.00. Pricey, yes, but hardly the most expensive card in the world. You’ll want to decide if the price for having it graded is really worth it to you - that could actually reduce your number of potential buyers, since they might not want to pay a premium for a graded card at this price point. If you intend to play the long game and wait a few years before selling, perhaps then having it graded (and put in a protective case) might be worth it to you.

    I just pulled a serlized Mesmeric Orb and I have no idea where to send for grading

    I was looking at a deck to put Nazgul in, and I'm currently deciding between Ratadrabik of Urborg and Araumi of the Dead Tide; the former directly comboing with them, and the latter being a combo deck that is happy to play them, as encoring a Nazgul is a powerful play that can drastically swing life totals. The main decision factor between the two is a conundrum I've ran into before; Ratadrabik is overall a more consistent combo: besides the commander, you just need a creature that ring tempts on ETB or LTB, and a payoff. The problem with this deck is it is vulnerable to being run over by the infect and aggro decks at my LGS. The combos with Araumi are more complicated and limited in pieces (ex. Mesmeric Orb, an untapper to encore, and a bucket of mana), but can fight more easily on a value front with plays like Gray Merchant of Asphodel, as well as access to blue to fight other combos on the stack.

    I can grasp deckbuilding for a combo deck in cEDH, but what should I keep in mind building a deck that has a combo win as plan A in a diverse, non-cEDH meta?

    Abaques and Caerwyn - thank you for expanding on your critiques. I agree with a lot of what you have said though some of your critiques of the set don't bother me that much personally. Still, you both make good points.

    Palantir of Orthanc might be the card I am most excited for right now. That is a snap add to my Balthor the Defiled/Sheoldred  Flip commander deck. It's either Mesmeric Orb #2 without the downside of annoying the entire table or straight card draw.

    Hi, nice deck! I'm currently brewing one as well,thanks for all the good ideas!

    Have you considered these cards? Mesmeric Orb Think about how much you untap during a game! Syr Konrad, the Grim This really depends and may not be worth it. Sepulchral Primordial I think this one is better than Sheoldred because it gives instant value and has evasion. She is cool but i prefer the primordial.

    I feel like the maximum handsize is actually a downside with Gitrog. In my opinion, you should always want to dump all your lands to the graveyard for a later crazy land dump with cards like splendid reclamation. Which leads me to question why dakmor salvage isn't in this. I can understand if you want the deck to be more original, but I feel it's almost blasphemous to not play it in a Gitrog deck. But the card would be a nonbo with the max handsize. I also recommend World Shaper. You'd only get one card trigger, but it's death trigger is just too good not to abuse. I also advise Mesmeric Orb as it mills individually allowing multiple draws
