TheVectornaut on Human to Eldrazi Conversion

1 month ago

It looks like your breakpoint for Eldritch Evolution is at 3 mana, but the single copy of Gisela is the only creature you can tutor for at that point that costs more than the sacrificed creature. If you want Evolution to be the Birthing Pod for this deck, I'd suggest adding more threats that cost 4-5 mana. Fives are particularly valuable since they can themselves be sacced to find Bruna or Deceiver of Form . Sticking with the Eldrazi type, Emrakul's Hatcher , Kozilek's Channeler , and the popular Reality Smasher seem like they'd be the most effective. The world's your oyster if you don't mind running other creature types. Stormbreath Dragon , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Baneslayer Angel , and Thragtusk are some picks recommended by the internet as the best modern creatures on 5. If you prefer having only the biggest baddest threats in the 7-9 range, I'd cut Evolution entirely for more ramp in Cryptolith Rite / Citanul Hierophants , From Beyond / Awakening Zone , or really whatever other options you prefer. Another card I'd consider cutting is Kozilek's Return since it will wipe out all of your tokens (even after upgrading with Emrakul's Evangel ) unless you're lucky enough to also have Eldrazi Monument out. Maybe Mizzium Mortars could be your sweeper if that's what you're looking for. A final cut I'd make is the odd fifth copy of Game Trail . Unless that's a typo, you don't typically want to run more than 4 copies of nonbasics, even in casual. Plus, your deck looks like it could use more white and colorless mana sources anyway. An interesting option that jumped to my mind was Westvale Abbey  Flip since you already have a human token theme. Some other tribal picks that might fit are Champion of the Parish , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip.

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! (BTW, I'm not a great sideboard builder, but I do know eldrazi make use of Warping Wail and Oblivion Sower in addition to the more traditional hate artifacts.)

Update Profet93

minus Oblivion Sower plus Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder

why: i hate magical Christmas land and don't wanna get stuck in that mind state, Endrek helps the "stax" aspect, feeds Skullclamp , Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools , Smokestack , Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar . and now Sadistic Hypnotist

Minus Sheoldred, the Whispering One plus Sadistic Hypnotist

why: Sheoldred is 7cmc really late game and doesn't truly help the deck along, Profet93 I think I now see what youre getting at, she's not weak in the deck, she's just not efficient. I have Smokestack for this slot. Secondly Phyrexian Reclamation can make up for the recursion half of her. That being said, Sadistic Hypnotist because the mans a fucking baller. Also because i'm gonna love ripping hands enough said.

I'm thinking of just cutting the Glacial Chasm for a Swamp , i hasn't saved me in the one set of three games, and I don't really think that i'll truly be needing it in the future. it was there for assuming the role of archenemy, can be not paid sac'd then replayed with Crucible of Worlds creating a small lock of sorts.

My friend was the one that suggested Oblivion Sower , I like the idea of ripping lands with it, as well as it's awkward 5/8 body. I do think its a little though and reaching into the casual realm which isn't really what im looking to do.

Bitter Ordeal can technically combo with the Lotus Petal loop and exile everyones Libraries(also less color intensive), but again, i'm looking at dream land. but it sounds really nice!

After some deliberation here's what I've come to:

Minus Dreamstealer plus Opposition Agent

Why: better value, answers answers

Minus Glacial Chasm plus Swamp

Why: need access to more colored mana, land count ins fine. Chasm doesn't currently do anything and doesn't tap for mana

Minus Metalworker plus Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire

Why: Metalworker is a good card, the idea pf it still works for the deck, but it requires to much set up, Varragoth i'm hoping "gets us there" also makes the deck "possibly"

I really like the suggestion of " Bitter Ordeal ", I see the "gravestorm" (IM VERY INTRIGUED). I feel more more comfortable with the " Sadistic Sacrament ", I guess what I'm seeing is :

3for3/10for15 of Sadistic Sacrament VS. 3for1...maybe more? Bitter Ordeal

Profet93

I got a game in against a casually optimized Torbran.

L2 W1

What I learned

Land count good, need better access to colored mana (would have resulted in a L1 W2 record)

Memory Jar is as quoted " .....devastating, breaking my back..."

the emotions of response I hoped achieved from foes has been realized.

+ Oblivion Sower - Syr Konrad, the Grim

Why: stealing lands from exile seems great, wrks with Memory Jar (rip lands from hand), works with Soul-Guide Lantern

-TO BE DISCUSSED -

CUT - Dreamstealer ADD - Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire

Why: Dreamstealer felt "cute" not impactful, preforms poorly overall as there are "better things to be doing". Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire on the other hands has a good body, deathtouch, and tutors. seems like a more impactful cards overall. Maybe add Opposition Agent instead?

jamochawoke on Mana fixing in a Boros …

2 months ago

For color fixing you really want lands like: Battlefield Forge , Clifftop Retreat , Temple of Triumph , Sunbaked Canyon , or the shock-land Sacred Foundry

There's also Manamorphose if you want to get fancy and have a way of benefitting from the cantrip or additional spell cast like in storm.

Honestly you can do really well with just 4x Clifftop Retreat checking for plains and mountains.

For mana ramping your choices are pretty limited.

In red you have Braid of Fire , Goldspan Dragon especially with treasure generating cards, Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Vessel of Volatility , one of my favorites is Geosurge into Oblivion Sower , Koth of the Hammer , and Soulbright Flamekin

In white you really only have a few tricks like generating a bunch of tokens before turn 4 and attacking with them but hitting them with Settle the Wreckage or hitting a creature you have that would die anyways with Path to Exile . All the other ramps in white are for putting lands in your hand (which would only be useful if you had a way to get them onto the field after) or using artifact ramp.

The thing to remember is Boros has really incredible hate cards to slow the opponent down, while also having some of the fastest cards in the game for killing them. Try to play to its strengths more and if you really want an angels deck, try using all the new angel-enablers that have been printed in the last few sets. I know I'm building one myself!

MrKillStar on all your deck are belong to us (Gonti EDH)

Really nice deck idea :D I like the idea of copying Gonti's etb ability with Strionic Resonator, so maybe something like Lithoform Engine could also be pretty good here :)

Also something like Scheming Symmetry could be useful, if your opponent forgets what Gonti does :D Maybe even Oblivion Sower to take exiled lands from opponent's exile under your control, ramping you and in case you hit 4 lands with Gonti.

Sadistic Sacrament - not really a steal card, but it could exile up to 3 or up to 15 card from target opponent's library, when you dont get a chance to do much with Gonti.. You wont be able to cast any of them with Gonti, but exiling 15 important cards from a deck can be fatal. Or just exile 15 lands, then cast Oblivion Sower and ramp 15 lands in one turn :D

Badass art card like Bitter Ordeal, just like Sadistic Sacrament, exiling any card in any player's library and goes absolutely crazy with some infinite die triggers (I use it in my Syr Konrad's For the Void with Tortured Existence+Desecrated Tomb+Phyrexian Altar and its great).

0riginal2 on ▷【TURN 2】【Forsaken Monument!】◁

I really liked this deck! For me, Matter Reshaper and the Thought-Knot Seer were real all-stars in games, providing many critical cards and preventing combos. Eldrazi Obligator ended up to be a very good card, and the 1 copy of Oblivion Sower was great in clutch. Turn 2-3 Forsaken Monument was quite common because of the 4 Eldrazi Temples, Birds of Paradise/Blisterpod, and Infernal Plunge. Overall, the deck was very good, it just could not stand up to the meta decks.
