Platinum Angel Discussion

Yeah I would cut those cards, as the main point of the deck by what you are doing so far is to play cards from your opponent. Having an artifact sub theme is good, but in the way in having mana and accelerating your boardstate. You can also add in a Master Transmuter to protect or cheat out your artifacts as well.

With paradox engine out on the field you can gain an incredible amount of mana, so I would focus on tutors as well as card advantage. Engines like Mystic Remora as well as Necropotence will be great, the latter being said though would require a good mana base to get the triple black efficiently. Cantrips are also good for filtering and card draw, some staples include Ponder , Preordain , Brainstorm for the basic one drop spells. If you don't like one shot cards than run more effects like Windfall to refill your hand.

Some additional cards that would be great for Sen are also cards like Delay , Remand , Unsubstantiate , Evacuation , Hurkyl's Recall , Snap . All of these types of cards allow you to remove threats and play them again when you take control of their hands.

For recursion based cards you also have cards like Argivian Find , Argivian Archaeologist , Hannah, Ship's Navigator, Faith's Reward in the case of people popping everything or preventative measures. You can also consider a subtheme of adding in planeswalker, as they are generally hard to deal with, and especially with the next set coming out, there are plenty of great choices to choose from.

Here are a list of cards you can consider cutting in my opinion:

Hope that helps!

Platinum Angel can work to lock some combos out. Rune-Scarred Demon or for answers can be good. World Breaker sees play in green tron for a reason- a universal exile is pretty decent.

The best in my opinion? Protean Hulk - The combos are all out there and your spells have its sacrifice as a casting cost.

I'd give some thought to Distended Mindbender sideboard- its not perfect but it works wonders against control.

Its also worth looking at Extractor Demon - the ability to cast it from the yard then sac it is pretty decent.

Definitely the two copies of Oblivion Sower and also either Platinum Angel s or one of your walkers. You have plenty of other, larger threats and by the time you get to 6-8 mana you're already at 10 for Ulamog.

So, trying to put together a soft lock together for Lich's Mastery .

Here's what I have so far:

Platinum Angel with Lightning Greaves + Darksteel Plate , Lich's Mastery , Enduring Renewal , Spore Frog , Phyrexian Metamorph (copying Spore Frog ), Clone (copying Spore Frog , or if you wanted to be cheeky, copying Phyrexian Metamorph copying Spore Frog ), and Lich's Mirror & in play, with ways to gain life in hand.

Am I missing something? In a 4-man pod I can't die here right?

DrukenReaps on Need help with this lost ...

I dunno if Rayenous will make it viewable or even has the list still so I would start by looking over the following stolen from that forum and build from there.

KrazyCaley said "Rayenous has it.

There are multiple ways to do it, but they all involve variations on the same basic pattern.

Step 1 - Mindslaver + Academy Ruins lock.

Step 2 - Prevent your opponent and preferably also yourself from losing (since this procedure will take a long time) through the use of Platinum Angel or Abyssal Persecutor .

Step 3 - Donate a mechanism to your opponent whereby they can put cards they own into their deck. Rayenous used Research on an Isochron Scepter . My version of this deck used Death Wish (which works since our opponent can't lose the game while we have the Angel/Persecutor out), but Research is faster. Repeatedly have them add in cards until their entire collection is in the deck. Note that you will probably also need to Donate something that generates any color mana to your opponent as well.

Step 4 - Use Amulet of Quoz to convert their entire deck, which is now their entire collection, into their ante (true, we'd have to be playing with ante rules, which are now gone, but hey, that's the fun).

Step 5 - Blow up whatever thing you set up to prevent your opponent from losing.

Step 6 - Enjoy all your friend's Magic cards."

Now I don't foresee anyone agreeing to ante so you might leave that part out... Also a lot of people even in casual games will say that only a side board can be added in with wish cards and commander doesn't use a side board. So most people play with the idea that if you use wish cards you need to let them know ahead of time.

At this point I would be looking at a commander. Maybe? Could add in another color if you want... Parhaps use Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and mill their crazy sized library to the grave? Actually a better option might be The Mimeoplasm for the commander. Cards like Villainous Wealth would be great.

What do you think of including Sunforger to the deck? What would you replace from the deck? It works well with most of the instant cards and also you can rotate them with Mistveil Plains . I was thinking maybe replaceing Platinum Angel since it seems like you don't need that extra protection. But then again I haven't played test the deck yet.

Garmads on Narset Token Fun

2 weeks ago

FenrisBurgess, that is very valid criticism. My playgroup is not consistent in power level, so even though this list is not optimized with tutors to grab all the answers, Narset still becomes Archenemy (turn 3 Anointed Procession + Storm Herd off the top one time will do that haha). I have tried to keep the density of tutors that directly find me win conditions down. I like digging through my deck to find the River's Rebuke answer to my opponent's copies of Platinum Angel under Daretti.

Recently though I have moved and have not played as much, so maybe it is time to get to an LGS and consider Enlightened Tutor and similar depending on the meta. They could make the deck significantly more focused, though I'd have to stare at this for awhile to figure out what to cut. Thanks for the feedback and upvote!

Motys on Yennett All Odds, No Evens

3 weeks ago

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.

Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .

Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .

Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.

To protect myself and yenett i'm running packet of : Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety , Shielded by Faith , Karmic Justice , Bastion Protector

Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.

Counterspell package: Stubborn Denial , Disallow , Overwhelming Denial .

Fun's over pack : Time Warp , Temporal Mastery

Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter

If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.

Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D
