Niblis of Frost Discussion

dingusdingo on Budget Kefnet Turns

2 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 ?

I think you should probably use Hunted Lammasu or Akroan Horse instead of Hunted Phantasm . Giving them one creature would be much easier to manage than having to deal with 5 1/1s.

Right now, Serum Visions is the only card that Teferi, Time Raveler helps out. You could probably cut those Teferis for more finishers, like Icefall Regent or Niblis of Frost .

I think you need some way to permanently deal with creatures. In modern, there are some creatures that you can't just let a stay on the board for extended periods of time, like Dark Confidant .

vasarto77 on The 8th Plague by Vas

Whir of Invention , Whirlpool Warrior , and Fabricate have all been added with Niblis of Frost , Arcane Denial , and Wee Dragonauts have been removed. Almost there. Just need the expensive mana rocks and volcanic island left.

18ths on Taigam, copypasta mastah

11 months ago

I considered him, but I found that most cases when its ability would trigger in this deck would also result in creature dead, exiled or in owner's hand. This makes Path to Exile even better, but nonbos hard with Fractured Identity. There are some three repeatable options - Will Kenrith (the best one actually), Niblis of Frost, Mother of Runes and seven nonrepeatable - Mirrorpool, Artful Dodge, Rite of Replication, Saheeli's Artistry, Slip Through Space, Stolen Identity and Valorous Stance. But I usually use Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Valorous Stance and Mother of Runes to protect Taigam and enable the deck.

It's a very good card and feels like an auto include in this strategy, but in this particular deck it works with only 10 cards, 4 of which I will probably use on different occasion. In case i dont have any of those 10 cards in hand, it will be a 5 mana dead card. I dont think it's worth it right now, but I'll add it to maybeboard. My decks change a lot over time, so maybe it will become better later. :) Thanks for the suggestion, though!
