Mirari's Wake Discussion

I really like Oketra's Monument in here. I would probably drop Fiery Emancipation (this may move too far away from your commander's activated ability being a primary strategy) and go with an anthem strategy overall as you acquire cards to slot in. Glorious Anthem, Gaea's Anthem, Dictate of Heliod, and, Beastmaster Ascension would all be solid in here. Other targets for removal for me would be Commander's Insignia and True Conviction. True Conviction can be great, but it seems a bit win more as opposed to just going wide and pumping through anthems. Beyond those, if you do lean into the anthem strategy, consider Mirari's Wake, Force of Virtue (can be a fun free play), Collective Blessing, and Spear of Heliod. You might even consider Intangible Virtue.

Have you considered Strionic Resonator to copy your commander's triggers?

Consider Blasphemous Act to replace Chain Reaction.

Consider Shared Animosity in place of Volatile Claws.

I see Heroic Intervention. I think I would also want Teferi's Protection. As a budget replacement, Eerie Interlude can still save a big junk of your board.

Card draw seems light. Just some various options: Runic Armasaur, Mind's Eye, The Immortal Sun (anthem as well), Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious, and, if you want to play in further on tokens, Ulvenwald Mysteries.

I agree on getting the token doublers in here and I also agree they are pricey :). A more budget option would be Second Harvest.

For win-cons, if you decide to switch to a Timmy approach, Craterhoof Behemoth is an obvious choice, and Thunderfoot Baloth would also fit nicely. With all your anthems (assuming you go that route), Humility would certainly be fun. Doesn't see much play, but a janky win con requiring setup is pairing Touch of the Eternal with enchantment destruction on the last end step before your turn, plus you usually want some protection in there. Like I said, a lot of setup :).

DemMeowsephs on Sanctify Thy Deck

Of course I'd love to help! Sorry for the late comment for some reason my wall didn't give me any notifications! Let's start off with lands. So if you look at your color pie, you have very few red and black cards and more green/white. However, to activate your commanders ability you need all five colors, thus I would have an even amount of lands for each color. Since there are five colors, I would recommend using multicolor lands such as the following.

As for ramp, I also have a few suggestions. From what I've seen, your ramp involves Growth Spiral, Harrow, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Birds of Paradise, Cultivate, a couple of enchant lands, Sol Ring, Chromatic Lantern, and Arcane Signet. I would remove Harrow and Cultivate, and add some of the following. Exploration, Burgeoning, Noble Hierarch, Nature's Lore, Courser of Kruphix, Mirari's Wake, etc. The ones that are enchantments are especially helpful for the enchantress theme.

For the enchantress theme I would check out EDHREC (Click here for enchantments and here for cards that go with Sisay. EDHREC is an amazing commander resource and it helps me quite a lot.

  • So in the end, my main points were focusing on upgrading your ramp and your lands. For the enchantress part I would recommend checking out EDHERC. Again, sorry for the late comment, thank you for reaching out, good luck on your deck, it seems VERY good so far, and have a great day!

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Mayael’s Overwhelming Stampede

1 month ago

Hi there,

Mayael the Anima was my first commander deck. I no longer run her, but there are a few things that I learned while playing her:

1) Protection is key: Because of her ability, Mayael is a lightning rod for removal. I'd think about including cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Dense Foliage (you aren't running much targeted removal anyways), Aspect of Mongoose, or some Umbras.

2) You need a back-up plan: You've already have a few ways besides Mayael to cheat creatures in, but I would highly recommend Hunting Grounds, as well as more ramp/mana doublers like Mirari's Wake

3) Top deck manipulation is the most important thing: In addition to Mirri's Guile, consider adding Sensei's Divining Top, Crystal Ball, Congregation at Dawn, and Scroll Rack (if you have the budget)

Also, some haste enablers like Rhythm of the Wild would be good. And I see that the pair of Avacyn, Angel of Hope/Sigarda, Host of Herons have already been suggested. I would consider the third member of the holy trinity, Archetype of Endurance, for complete protection.

Eternaldark866 on Mayael’s Overwhelming Stampede

Recommended additions and reasoning:

Mirari's Wake, Mana Reflection: These come at cheaper mana costs than your Zendikar Resurgent. Drawing a card on the Resurgent is good, but not good enough, since you have to cast the creature. While you likely will have enough mana to do so, it is going to be less common than cheating out the creatures. Additionally, Mana Reflection will work with all permanents, not just land. So your creature and artifact mana will double as well.

Strionic Resonator, Rings of Brighthearth: This lets you copy Mayael's ability. Digging 15 cards for 3 creatures is better than 5 cards for 1...

Exploration, Oracle of Mul Daya, Bloom Tender: all phenomenal sources of ramp. Highly recommend Oracle for the ability to remove land fromt he top of your deck, allowing you to dig that one card deeper... where you will find...

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth: Even if you aren't casting Kozi, you get a massive beater with Annihilator, and as a huge bonus, he helps recycle your graveyard in the event of a board wipe. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Gaea's Cradle: You run a ton of green permanents, and if you take the Mana Reflections from earlier, you double the number of green you get from it. It is a really cool way to generate a ton of mana super quickly. about the Cradle, creature heavy decks can always benefit from it, and again... Mana Reflections doubles it.

Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance: 2 enchantments that give you free damage that you can use as removal for opponent's creatures or nukes to the face. Additionally, fun interaction with the surge and the Blightsteel Colossus I also recommend, the Surge says the creature deals the damage... unblockable 11 infect shoots someone out of the game.

Panharmonicon: In a deck with a ton of creature based ETB effects, this artifact is a must. With the Surge from earlier out, now you get 2 of those triggers.... Eternal Witness: Phenomenal recursion, and can save you by getting back something you need from the graveyard.

Genesis Wave: Now that we have you pumping mana out like a pro, Genesis Wave for 40, and watch as a large amount of unnecessarily large creatures enter the battlefield and turn them sideways because you have...

Urabrask the Hidden: Yeah that's right, get that haste, and if someone tries to flash in a blocker it's useless.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Privileged Position, Vigor: Because nothing says "fun" like having a boardstate that is hard to remove. Additionally, damage to your creatures makes them bigger. Thank you, Vigor.

Craterhoof Behemoth: You play this with 10+ creatures on the board, and you have an automatic 100 damage added to your total.

Tooth and Nail, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Zealous Conscripts: This is an infinite combo as well as the tutor to get it. Tap Kiki, copy the conscripts, use the new copy's trigger to target Kiki, untap Kiki. Tap Kiki, copy the conscripts... Create infinite Zealous Conscripts to attack everyone for yes damage.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight: Amazing for both extra damage and protection.

Vedalken Orrery: Because playing on your opponent's turn is funny. And your Seedborn Muse really gets to put in work in a 4 player game, on top of the Mayael useage.

Vexing Shusher: Because nobody likes blue. This card is a big middle finger to blue.

Lurking Predators: So your opponent wants to cast things? Maybe you get a free creature for it. Can be quite useful.

Recommended cuts and the reasoning:

Desolation Twin,Krosan Tusker: They don't do enough to better your boardstate in my opinion. Desolation Twin is a 10/10 sure, but other than that, nothing. Chances are, you won't be casting it that much to get the second 10/10 anyways. The Tuskar only benefits you if you cycle it, otherwise it is just a mediocre creature. Additionally, cycling it only gets a basic land, of which you are running very few. This is not a criticism of your land base. I didn't want to touch it too much because my own landbase is significantly more expensive.

Gigantosaurus, Woolly Thoctar: These are just vanilla big creatures, which isn't too bad on it's own, but I like to have creatures that actually DO something more than sit there and look pretty.

Pathbreaker Wurm, Tectonic Hellion, Tyrant of Discord: These guys are all decent, but the Pathbreaker only helps one other creature. The Hellion is cool, but what if you have the most lands? You aren't running Crucible of Worlds, but your opponents might be. the Tyrant is more of a personal preference, I don't like it because of it's random factor.

Rith's Grove: It is a bounce land, without the benefit of tapping for 2 mana like the dual color bounce lands. Not worth running in my opinion.

Pure / Simple: This card is too restrictive. Running the Krosan Grip, Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile are all better options. They don't force you to choose multicolor creature, or equipment or aura. They just remove a target.

Tragic Arrogance: I love boardwipes as much as the next guy, but this hits you just as hard as your opponents, and instead of using Invincibility to get through it, you have to sacrifice. Wrath of God would be a much better option in my opinion.

Emerald Medallion, Ruby Medallion: In my opinion, these guys are less useful since you are trying, for the most part, to cheat everything out.

Firemind Vessel, Firewild Borderpost, Wildfield Borderpost: While mana rocks are good, I feel that these guys are far too slow to be running.

Rith's Charm: To me it doesn't do enough by itself to warrant keeping. You have little to no ways of getting it back or making more uses of it, so it is a 1 shot item. I'm sure by now you have noticed I prefer things that have multiple and recurring uses.

Overall, I love it. I love Mayael, and she has been my strongest and favorite deck for a very long time (2012). My current version relies very little on her ability, because I played with a bunch of rather rude people that played Pithing Needle and named her all the time. It was not fun, but building my deck to use her ability as an option, instead of a strategy, changed the way I used her, meaning that the needle no longer leaves my deck dead in the water.

Please keep in mind that my recommendations are just that. if that Gigantosaurus doesn't do anything, but you like it because it's a dinosaur, and you don't want to cut it, you do not have to. I unfortunately gave up all my dreams of having cards I like for flavor, aesthetics, etc, because I decided to build my deck to compete and even stomp on combo and control decks. I have no room for cards that don't serve to better my boardstate as a whole.

Final Note: I will be more than happy to provide further insight and feedback if you have any other questions.

plakjekaas on What is your favorite card ...

Authority of the Consuls is a very innocuous-looking 1drop that ends up gaining me at least 20 life and ruins all surprise blocking my opponents would be trying.

Aven Mindcensor is always the most Gotcha!-card in a game. People search their libraries so much in this format, it's never just a flying ambush viper.

Zendikar Resurgent, Mirari's Wake, Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun and Nyxbloom Ancient really give me the feeling that I'm playing commander. spending 20 mana each turn is the epitome of edh, at least in my experience. Combined with Beast Whisperer and The Great Henge, I just keep spewing my hand in play, and next turn I get to do it again, because my playgroup doesn't like players attacking with creatures, there's so many boardwipes all the time. Therefore, free token generators like Thopter Spy Network, Shark Typhoon and Sandwurm Convergence are also favourites.

Narrash on Storming Legends - The Ur-Dragon

1 month ago

BLK-Swordsman ok, as far as I understand, PMs are an upgraded feature, so I'll try to reply here in the most efficient way. I'm going to assume you've bought the 2017 Dragon precon like I did, which is a good start. Scion decks play combo. You put dragons in the graveyard to one-shot your opponent. The Ur-Dragon is spawning dragons, as a result it's a casual deck. First things first would be upgrading the mana base. If your budget allows you to, grab 5 fetches (10 really isn't necessary). I guess the enemy fetches are better but I run the allied for budget reasons. Play the 5 triomes. Even without fetches I'm sure they're good enough but since I run the triomes with fetches I find them spectacular. I used to run 10 shock lands but someone did the math for me and if you play the triomes, 5 allied check lands + 5 enemy shocks are just as good. The only dragon which is also budget that is mandatory is Atarka. Scourge of the Throne is incredible too. You can do pretty much what you want when it comes to the rest. I recommend Lathliss, Utvara Hellkite, Silumgar. Terror of the Peaks is the new M21 dragon and it's huge. Ones I do run for personal affiliation but don't recommend playing are Dromoka, Kolaghan and Ojutai. I think the dragon package is where your personality shines so do what you want with it! I'd recommend having around 25 dragons, not 30+. Ramping is a priority, consider that with The Ur-Dragon ability, dragons start coming at 4CMC, potentially turn 3 with some ramp. Instead of mana rock, prioritize spells between 2 and 4CMC that lets you fetch a specific land type (to grab triomes or shocks). Mirari's Wake is incredible. I'm not a fan of ramp on bodies except for some exceptions like Faeburrow Elder (2 mana at worst),Goreclaw and obviously Morophon which makes our commander 4 mana. For a first version of the deck, Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman are good alternatives. Fill the slots with cheap mana rocks, around 2-3CMC, no more (except for Prismatic Geoscope which is incredible with the right mana base). All star artifacts are Herald's Horn, Chromatic Lantern, Dragon's Hoard for obvious reason and The Great Henge, the latter which can enter on turn 4 at the earliest thanks to our beefy dragons. Since they're heavy on CMC, haste-enablers are great. Check out the ones I run, they're all cheap I'm pretty sure, like the two boots (Dragon Tempest is the best card). You mustn't run out of gas so drawing cards is good, especially attached on ramp spells like Kiora. Again, most of my draw spells are cheap and either ramp or grant haste so take those too (like Temur Ascendancy). Rhystic Study is going to be reprinted, better that than Painful Truths for example. Depending on your meta you can choose the number of removals to run. Since we play big spells and rarely have open mana I'd recommend using pseudo-removals with synergy instead of hard removal like Utter End. As in removal on bodies, like Glorybringer, Sarkhan's Unsealing, Silumgar, Atarka. I run very few board wipes but they're one-sided and cheap (Crux of Fate and Earthquake). That should be it. In short, choose your dragon package. Play A LOT of ramp. Fill the rest with haste-enablers and card draws, even better when a card fulfill two roles.
