DarkHero on Mairsil, The Pretender Things That ...

5 days ago

Doing a little Brewing with Mairsil, the Pretender because I love commanders that let you use cards that don't see a lot of play. I've definitely come across some interesting stuff.

I'd like to share some of the interactions and also inquire about what others are thinking as far as efficiency and fun, or any other combos/interactions not mentioned.

  1. There are ways to get around the "only once per turn" wording. This is probably the most confusing piece of decks based on this Commander. The most obvious choice is Quicksilver Elemental , allowing you to pay to essential get a new instance of an ability. I am lead to believe that flickering Mairsil will also reset this rule. But if this is wrong or there is a way to make it more clear (OR OTHER WAYS TO DO IT) please share.

  2. AEtherling , Torchling , and Morphling are just about mandatory for protection and evasion.

  3. Untap effects are powerful, making Pili-Pala combos a thing, but I'm not sure what makes the most sense here. And finding a home for Horseshoe Crab .

  4. Skill Borrower can basically be a Mairsil Lite

  5. Loot Effects are excellent because Mairsil doesn't care if the target are in hand or in graveyard.

6. Pack Rat can be used to create copies of Mairsil, which one will die, but it can be used to evade and get additional uses of abilities.

7. Vector Asp ...

8. Anthroplasm + Sage of Hours in cages makes for extra turn shenanigans

9. Soul of New Phyrexia + Nevinyrral's Disk in cages creates one sided boardwipes on a stick.

10. The Chain Veil ? Could Grixis Superfriends be a thing with a combo here? If anything you get the ability without the drawback.

11.And this is the big one. Mirror-Mad Phantasm . So the wording here is different, "a card named..." means we won't replace the name with Mairsil, so we will rummage through our deck looking for another Phantasm, that isn't there. So we are able to put our entire library into the graveyard. From here we can use a combo based around Narcomoeba , Bloodghast Fatestitcher , Dread Return , Laboratory Maniac , and flashback Deep Analysis for the win. It's a little janky, but it is essentially a 2 card combo with a little support.

12.Aside from that, Necrotic Ooze would love all these activated abilities in the graveyard.

Again I'm looking to provide some clarity, for others and myself, on good ways to take this commander. If anything I've shared is wrong or there are better ways to do it, please let everyone know!

You might consider giving these cards a try: Isochron Scepter , Necrotic Ooze , Havengul Lich , Cephalid Illusionist (you can mill your whole library with this and Lightning Greaves)

So as the other thread stated the meter is garbage but i do notice this is a very casual deck, first off this is only a two color deck fetch land are just going to slow you down scrap em, second, YOUR IN BLACK run necropotence, pairs with blue very well for card advantage amd its also just kinda broken, then lasly choose from a plethora of wincons either related to milling or not for end game support in case straight mill does not work, one of my favorites is mikeaus, the unhallowed+ Triskelion then you throw in a Phyrexian Devourer and a Necrotic Ooze . Buried Alive never hurts and throw in a Victimize for good measure and bam your pretty deadly. Some other cards to consider, Spark Double , Ashiok, Dream Render , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Sinister Sabotage , Soothsaying , and as you said mill is not super strong so wy not lock the board down with cards like Winter Orb , Static Orb , Stasis , or even a creature like Sheoldred, the Whispering One, can hold your opponents down while you mill them out, well thats about all i got for now let me know if you have any questions on what i said and good luck!this comander looks fun!

Triskelion is useful. Also Phyrexian Devourer will win the game for you if you get it out. Using above cards and putting in Necrotic Ooze also makes a good combo.

I get that. Years ago, my playgroup would have been more casual. While I still have a couple friends leaning on the more casual side [they excel in the political game], most of my group has gotten to the point where the decks are more of a competitive casual nature. Still Janky fun, but more optimized within budget.

My deck started as a combo with the Necrotic Ooze , and self mill, but my playstyle doesn't really suit for Combo. So, I went with the control build and utilizing specific creatures I knew Lazav wanted to be. In doing so, the cards required for control made me stray from the self mill game.

I'll keep popping in, looking forward to see where your deck goes.

Also, Necrotic Ooze , Pili-Pala and Grand Architect can give you that Mana to be able to make him whatever you want whenever you need
