Niblis of Frost Discussion

Yeah, that could work. I would replace Monastery Swiftspear with Niblis of Frost However, I think Guttersnipe should stay in the deck.

If you're going to devote a deck to your favorite card (Nice choice, mine's Soulcatchers' Aerie), I would go all in. For example, in Dimir, Mana Skimmer is the Timeshifted version of Somnophore.

Time of Ice, Quiet Contemplation, Back to Basics, Dream Tides, Wrath of Marit Lage, Temporal Distortion, Neko-Te Thalakos Dreamsower, Wall of Stolen Identity, Frost Titan, Queen of Ice, Wall of Ice, Niblis of Frost, Guardian of Tazeem, Icefall Regent, Dungeon Geists, Mesmerizing Benthid, House Guildmage, Tidebinder Mage, Watertrap Weaver, Frost Lynx, Stitched Mangler, Fogwalker, and Vertigo Spawn would probably be my picks for "freeze" tribal.

Alternately, if you're not invested in Dimir, so much as in the creature itself, you could build a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, or Empress Galina deck, since those commanders probably best represent what the card is doing.

babybrazz88 on Budget Mono Blue Tempo Looking for Suggestions

Love the deck so far! Mono blue has always had a soft spot in my heart. I'm going to do some testing with this tomorrow and swap out quench for Spell Pierce . Sure it's only noncreature, but its a single blue which allows you to play most of your deck on tempo and still have a counter up. Mana can be tight turn 2,3,4,5. I'm also going to swap out the 2x Niblis of Frost (By the time this card can go off, you should be closing the game out) and 1x Harbinger of the Tides for 3x Master of Waves . I know the card isn't super cheap but man this thing will close out games almost instantly. Also I'd go ahead and try and get some Essence Capture and Disdainful Stroke in your sideboard.

I will get back to you tomorrow after I test.

Best!

dingusdingo on Budget Kefnet Turns

10 months ago

I enjoy the Kefnet Turns build, haven't seen it before for this commander and I think its rather neat. You should focus exclusively on assembling your win and remove the extra side cards, like your mill sub-theme. I also think you should replace expensive removal and interaction with cheaper pieces, as you're less likely to cast them off the top with Kefnet. I also think you should add in more ways to discard and also tutor to top of deck. Your combo requires a handful of specific cards and also to be in a specific spot in your library, so topdeck manipulation and tutors help immensely.

My complete list of changes would be

Dismiss -> Counterspell

Everdream -> Ponder

Exclude -> Arcane Denial

Precognitive Perception -> Concentrate (You're never copying the addendum with Kefnet)

Supreme Will -> Mana Leak

Thought Collapse -> Mental Misstep (Every deck runs 1 cmc spells so Misstep is unbelievable value for EDH)

River's Rebuke -> Wipe Away

Zndrsplt's Judgement -> Vapor Snag (That card is hard to link to :O )

Mistfire Adept -> Long-Term Plans

Riverwise Augur -> Sleight of Hand

Niblis of Frost -> Mystical Tutor

Drowned Secrets -> Serum Visions

Fraying Sanity -> Preordain

Precognition Field -> Careful Study

Psychic Corrosion -> Fabricate

I think its worth noting

That to combo off, you need Library + Aminatou's Aug + Dino + Turn card + Commander. That requires 4 cards outside your commander, 3 of which are exactly specific. Finding another enabler or outlet to reuse your turn spells or another way to put cards on top would help the consistency of this deck a lot. Running more draw and tutors to topdeck also lets you value copy a turn spell to start chaining turns, and even if you don't hit an infinite loop getting 3 or 4 extra turns will get you much closer to establishing the lock. You should shave off alternate wincons and focus on getting infinite turns, because once you have them you've won.

Cipher001 on A Lullmage's Dream

I like Hunted Lammasu best of those options. Akroan Horse is good, but takes time to really earn itself, and there's a lot of artifact hate, from Kolaghan's Command to Abrade .1 horror is a lot easier to deal with than 5 goblins, though, yeah. I I should have looked through the hunted cycle again. I went down from 3 to 2 phantasms for that reason, 5 creatures being hard to keep under control.

I'll take out the time ravelers, but I'm not sure what I'll replace it with. If I end up needing more reliable creature presence on the opposite side of the board, I could add more Hunted Lammasu , but Niblis of Frost is also good, and I like the ability to make an Opt a free activated ability from Quiet Contemplation . Against aggro, lifelink would be helpful, so maybe Ojutai Exemplars instead of the niblis of frost?

As for having a way to permanently shut creatures down, that kind of goes against the aesthetic. The hope is that I'll be able to net more value out of it than my oppinent will with Verity Circle . Not all games will have verity circle out though, I know.

Gideon is a way to deal with tapped creatures, but he's a 1-of. Should I bump that number up, or go with a card like Swift Reckoning ?
