Hello friend! I have some suggestions! I had way too much time today, so here you go.

Relatively cheap, potent, and just perfect upgrades.

This bit is, of course, focused on making as many treasures as your board can bear.

Great, now you have all of these treasures, now what are you going to do with them?

  • Frogmite, Lens Flare, Scale of Chiss-Goria, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Mycosynth Golem, Slag Strider, Furnace Dragon, and Myr Enforcer are all notable cards you could add, since they pretty much become free after a while, though mostly pretty useless.

  • Forsworn Paladin is pretty good token generation early game, but really shines with the second ability where it can instantly punish anyone blocking or attacking you recklessly.

  • Marionette Master is going to pack a punch.

  • Dargo, the Shipwrecker is super cheap for a 7/5 with trample.

  • Enraged Giant, Freejam Regent, Battle at the Bridge, Saheeli's Directive, Herald of Anguish, and Organic Extinction are all pretty solid additions, since they don’t make you sacrifice anything in exchange for it.

  • Ruthless Technomancer has a million combos with (like Dockside Extortionist+sac outlet) and is just pretty good on its own.

  • Leonin Elder is just one life, but when you’re playing a treasure deck, that one life will definitely add up.

  • Underhanded Designs is a murder or a poke engine, which is very snazzy.

  • Glaze Fiend is pretty scary, considering that it has trample.

  • Dragonspark Reactor could be a bit of removal in your back pocket or your wincon.

  • Arcbound Crusher’s design team didn’t anticipate just how many artifacts I was planning on throwing onto the field.

  • Professional Face-Breaker is just like Grim Hireling, in that it makes treasure tokens, but more importantly, it gives you something else. You get a load of impulse draw, which is really nice when you have loads of mana.

  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw is just an artifact tutor, really. Though, there are plenty of treasure loving dragons you could also fish for. (:

  • Kalain, Reclusive Painter loves treasures, giving everyone big buffs.

  • Swashbuckler Extraordinaire can give anything that might be sensitive to dying double strike for a big final push. That, or just give one big boy double strike.

  • Their Number is Legion gets you lots of life and lots of tokens.

  • Necron Overlord is just a worse Ghirapur, but it’s still gonna hurt.

  • Street Urchin is the same idea as the above.

  • Armix, Filigree Thrasher could be some annoying removal, especially early game.

  • Hellkite Igniter is a big boy that, if left unblocked, could be a one hit kill.

  • Feedback Bolt is a big, powerful spell. To put it simply: ouch.

  • Fain, the Broker can make treasures, can make +1/+1’s, and can make little spooky boys. The best type of boys. Great utility and variety overall.

  • Rain of Riches is big. One cascading spell a turn, whichever one you want? Imagine dropping Feedback Bolt and cascading into Hellkite Igniter.

  • Captain Lannery Storm is innocent… Until you leave her unblocked like a dummy.

  • Concussive Bolt can be an easy kill, letting you get as much damage as you want through.

  • Dispense Justice is just like saying “Fuck your voltron.”

  • It seems you also like having and sacrificing constructs, so here’s a bit to let you do more of that, if you’d prefer to have a construct deck over a treasure token deck.

    • Shared Animosity will give constructs a boost, but there really isn’t a specific theme across creature types aside from that, and your constructs are better used for chump blocking or just turning them into scrap. Ignore this if you’re going for more of a construct tribal sort of thing.

    • Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is a good card, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s really necessary.

    • Rakdos Charm could be replaced with something better as far as artifact removal or graveyard hate. Nihil Spellbomb would be good graveyard hate and Generous Gift is just a good white staple.

    • Comet Storm is fun, but Crackle with Power is more fun.

    tinyindividual on Gift of pain

    Sadly, the interaction between Phyrexian Soulgorger and Jon Irenicus, Shattered One isn't as impactful as you may think. Due to the comprehensive rules text for Cumulative Upkeep, your opponent may choose not to pay, and nothing will happen. This happens because the choice provided isn't between paying and sacrificing but between paying and not paying. Once a player chooses not to pay a Cumulative Upkeep cost, the game then makes the decision to sacrifice the permanent. After this decision is made, the new line of text that Jon Irenicus places on your gift prevents the sacrifice, and your opponent loses nothing.

    tldr: Due to rule shenanigans, Jon can't force your opponent to pay cumulative upkeep, and they won't lose what you give them.

    griffstick: It's one of these terrible cards that are pretty great once in a while.

    Has anyone suggested Feldon of the Third Path, yet? Making an Impervious Greatwurm token to fling at someone's face seems pretty dope. Heart-Piercer Manticore is another good fling effect.

    I did a quick search and found other fitting cards: Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Daemogoth Titan, Daemogoth Woe-Eater, Deep-Slumber Titan, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Plague Reaver, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

    AstroAA on Selvala CEDH V8.4

    Scytec I'm not the maker of this deck, but I do have a Selvala deck that is very similar. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds wins by essentially playing an undercosted high-power creature such as Phyrexian Dreadnought or Phyrexian Soulgorger to quickly generate a ton of mana, get cards like Quirion Ranger or Wirewood Symbiote into play with Temur Sabertooth to generate infinite mana through blinking the Wirewood Symbiote to use it's ability multiple times, and then tapping and untapping Selvala, and then either with through a Walking Ballista for infinite or infinitely bouncing something like Great Oak Guardian to give all your creatures +infinite/+infinite and swing for game.

    As for this deck, I would highly recommend adding Concordant Crossroads, Craterhoof Behemoth, or even cards like Berserk. Concordant Crossroads is essential in decks like Selvala, where you can repeatedly bounce your own mana dorks to generate infinite mana, or even flood the board with creatures and quickly swing for game that turn. Deserted Temple is also nice for untapping things like Gaea's Cradle or Wirewood Lodge. Sylvan Tutor is also really nice as it adds more consistency.

    Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

    1 year ago

    Hello legendofa,

    I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

    Unlife on My Deck is my Phylactery

    Platinum Emperion keeps your life total stable and Lich's Mirror can help keep you alive even if your life total hits 0. Copy Enchantment could be helpful as it's tutorable by zur.

    In terms of cuts and what you want your deck to do, I would get rid of Ashes of the Abhorrent, Mirrormade, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Kaya's Ghostform, Ethereal Armor, and Preordain

    Skinken on Artifact R/W CMDR

    Be careful with the legality of your deck. Scattered Groves is not legal in a Boros EDH deck because it's color identity is . If you run Zirda as a companion as you have to abide by the restriction as per the oracle text. For Zirda every permanent (Land, Creature, Artifact, Enchantment and Planeswalker) cards in your deck should have an activated ability. An activated ability is anything with with "Cost : effect". ":" is an indication of an activated ability. Cards like Phyrexian Soulgorger and Myrsmith have triggered abilities, not activated abilities, and are not legal in a Zirda companion deck.

    Also beware that a change was made to the Companion mechanic so you have to pay to put it in your hand rather than straight up casting it like a commander .

    It's not entirely clear who your commander is. You can mark your commander with the tag *CMDR* and your companion with *CMPN* tappedout formatting

    Fix these issues and I'll take another look. But it's hard to provide feedback for a deck of 40 illegal cards and no commander ;)
