Daedalus19876 on To Drown the World in Death: Araumi EDH [PRIMER]

3 weeks ago

Omniscience_is_life: It's certainly not BAD -- it returns my commander, and can also hit Glasspool Mimic  Flip/Phantasmal Image to fulfill one of my combos -- but it is definitely a potential cut. Toxic does seem like a pretty important inclusion here...

Daedalus19876 cool, i thought so. I am in the opposite boat as I have a Phantasmal Image just not the mimic, thank you great list again!

MFBOOM: Yeah, they're pretty interchangeable. But I liked the fact that Glasspool Mimic  Flip (sort of) takes up a land slot... And also, I already owned a copy XD Phantasmal Image is something I want to test but I don't own a copy yet.

Love this list, simply incredible, you are one of my favorite deck builders, great job. Question, could Glasspool Mimic  Flip be replaced with Phantasmal Image as they are the same?

A while ago I read your first win condition (dump graveyard + renimate Muldrotha, the Gravetide + LED + Phantasmal Image), and I thought it was interesting that you said "This is a loop that can be used to net every time we execute it. Once we have an arbitrarily high amount of mana, we can start filtering it into Mana of any colour. Now that we have infinite Mana of every color."

I thought of correcting you and wrongly commenting "Hey! That's not infinite mana of EVERY color because you need to spend to generate , one infinity will always be smaller than the other infinities." But after some thinking I had a revelation and knew you were right. That was the first time I encountered this fact, and now I'm studying this fact in my higher mathematics course at my university. In the 1600s, Galileo Galilei observed that it is possible for two infinite sets to be the same size even though one is an infinite subset of the other. For example, the set of the natural numbers (1,2,3,4,5,...) has a 1-1 correspondence with the set of integers (0,1,-1,2,-2,...), even though the set of natural numbers is contained in the set of integers. They're the same size of infinity! It's beautiful that so much mathematics is implicit in this game.

Wall of Stolen Identity doesn't seem good enough. It's too expensive at 4, and it plays badly around Meekstone, Fell the Mighty and Wave of Reckoning.

If a clone effect is needed I'd consider Phantasmal Image or just steal it with Gilded Drake instead. Neither give you a draw with the commander, but they cost half as much and have just as/more powerful effects.

Thanks for the tip and another deck to take a look at! I'll have to put some consideration into it!


Robe of Mirrors was going to be almost exlusively used for Lord of the Unreal to protect him if I'm unable to get a Phantasmal Image to extend hexproof to him. I'm not beholden to the card by any means though.

I'm not sure which of the two yet look more interesting to me as a replacement for Disperse. I like the flavor of Repeal more, but it could be a lot more mana intensive to take out a big threat. Echoing Truth seems potentially powerful...Would an effective combo be to go with it and add in some Polymorphist's Jest? Turn them all to frogs, then force them all back into the player's hand?
