Prophet of Kruphix Discussion
1 week ago
Mine was in retaliation to what someone else did to me in a previous game of commander. He Mental Misstepped my turn 1 Sol Ring, which is understandable, and then Strip Mined my only land. I was mana locked for the rest of the game starting on turn 1. And he didn’t even feel bad about it. No apology or anything.
So in a later game, I was playing slivers. It was a pod of 3. Me, the guy I wanted to get back at, and this other person I really enjoyed playing with. This was before Prophet of Kruphix got banned. I had it in play and was playing lots of slivers. The guy I liked played Insurrection and was obviously going to kill me with it. I was a huge problem. But he didn’t have enough firepower to kill both of us. That was until I used Sliver Overlord to tutor and flash out a Bonescythe Sliver. If I was going down, I was gonna get my revenge. I caused the other guy to leave the tournament out of frustration.
Yeah, it was done purely out of spite. I normally don’t do that, but when people get arrogant with me, I don’t handle it well.

I don’t understand the argument “if you let it resolve and get back to the person who cast it” as a valid argument for why it shouldn’t be banned. People likely don’t play enough removal or counter magic, but in edh there is a chance that you don’t have the answer, or if you have an answer it’s not instant speed or you’re tapped out when the time comes. Add a wheel effect instead of getting 1 card (if not your turn) like you would with Narset, Parter of Veils you and the non HB players are left with nothing and the HB player has a non-zero number of cards and a minimum of 3x-1 cards where x was the greatest number of cards in hand (assuming Dark Deal the lowest level of wheels). Now that the HB player has cards and mana to use they likely drew into protection on the off chance that you do top deck an answer in the one card you’re allowed per turn. Notion Thief does have the same issue as HB, but as the RC mentioned the higher mana cost and the extra pip make it a less likely card to show up.
If it wasn’t clear through my wall of text above I’m in favor of this banning. I’ve been on both sides of the HB and it’s definitely not fun to play with/against. All this coming from a recovering Leovold, Emissary of Trest player (rest easy my sweet prince). The HB banning is probably the best ban IMO since Prophet of Kruphix .

Generally games will go really quick if you can set up a Prophet of Kruphix effect. At that point it’s really easy to outvalue and control the board. Usually it takes just one turn cycle of prophet if that to reach a win con.
I do agree that additional card draw makes Kadena run more smoothly. Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project are all stars here. I don’t know that I personally like Soul of the Harvest purely for its mana cost, but it does trigger on entry rather than cast which is a notable difference.

I have gotten to play a few games with the deck at its current build. One I came in second and another I won. There are some interesting interactions. The deck has proven resilient to board wipes and versatile dealing with opponents. MVP cards have been
Seedborn Muse + Havengul Lich + Flash let me pull way ahead after board wipes winning me the game.
Scroll of Fate has proven to be a great way to dodge counter magic for must have creatures like Seedborn Muse . With this deck Scroll of Fate basically reads draw a card and play this card it is uncounterable.
Vesuvan Shapeshifter let me use Chromeshell Crab multiple times to swap 2/2 manifested lands with my opponents beaters.
Makes me wish Prophet of Kruphix was still legal. I think I am going to work on the manabase for now as the next steps.

There’s nothing banned here?? Seedborn Muse for Prophet of Kruphix , Trade Secrets , Flash , Gifts Ungiven , Leovold, Emissary of Trest . Why not run Flash Hulk? Necropotence for Leyline of Anticipation .

This is definitely going to be an opinion-filled thread, but I'll throw my hat in.
I disagree wholeheartedly. In fact I'd go so far as to say Strixhaven is the only set I've been actually excited for in what feels like ages. Eldraine was somewhat exciting but before that... Dominaria? Again this is entirely subjective and I'm not here to tell anyone they're wrong about their opinion on a product. But I'm looking forward to Strixhaven.
Introduction to Annihilation is the worst example I could possibly think of to argue blurring the line between colors. Scour from Existence , Universal Solvent , Meteor Golem , Unstable Obelisk , Spine of Ish Sah , Colorless permanent removal is far from new or color warping. Most of the lessons, like Introduction to Prophecy , will mostly be inconsequential imo because, to be frank, they're bad. 3 for a Serum Visions ? Even mono-white isn't THAT desperate for draw.
WOTC is trying to force us into playing golgari lifegain
I'm stoked to finally get golgari lifegain support. If that's not your style, I get it, but I'm happy for it personally.
Galazeth Prismari feels like a case of catering to EDH. Adding red to your deck options and tapping artifacts for any color instead of blue feels like more of a sidegrade than a downgrade. We'll have to see how it does imo.
As for Beledros Witherbloom , a wise man once said of Prophet of Kruphix : If you think this card costs mana, you've been fooled. As for "This card may not be used in any infinite mana combo", actually it says "Flicker me". It's not in good colors for that, but I could see a BUG deck getting infinite mana out of this if they can find a way to supply the life. Deadeye Navigator says hi.
Release, experience, and hindsight will probably affect everyone's opinions on Strixhaven, as it has every set before it. So I generally try to take a "wait and see" approach, even if MTG doesn't have a great record for what I've waited for and seen recently imo.

I noticed you had Prophet of Kruphix in your future section. Unfortunately, that card is banned in commander. Of course, if you are playing with friends in your own play group, you don't have to mind the ban list lol. If you want another big flashy fish boi, Pearl Lake Ancient is a pretty good one. Also, I feel like a deck like this could use more ramp, such as Explore or Explosive Vegetation or anything you prefer. Finally, some more all around great cards in green are Genesis Wave , Primal Command and Lurking Predators as well as Finale of Devastation , and The Great Henge if you aren't too concerned about a budget.

If, with the enormous card pool of the EDH format, you can't construct a deck of the colors of your liking, without feeling the need to include (or or to a lesser extent), you might be blinded by power and lost track of the philosophy of the format.
Not being able to enjoy a deck without letting the splashy new "must-includes" dictate you how to build it, sounds more like a personal problem than a defect in the format to me.
Suspence89 Green has been the go-to for big splashy silly things WAY before EDH was rising up as the biggest format of them all. You can't rejoice about the old days of Prophet of Kruphix and Primeval Titan and then shake your self-proclaimed boomer head at green in its current role in EDH in the same post. If you don't like to have to include green in your deck, then don't. I'm sure there's over 15000 cards still to choose from. Hell, I've built a mono +1/+1 counter deck just to see if I could, and it turned out crazy fun. The beauty of this great game we all love is in your absolute freedom to express yourself through the cards you put in your deck. I currently have 13 decks built, not even half of them play Sol Ring . I only own 2 Arcane Signet . I have as many decks that are green (2 mono , 1 , 1 and 1 five color) as I have decks within Boros colors (2 mono, 2 mono, 1 ). There's no reason to include green in any deck you don't want to, and if you want to play green in every deck, you appear to be a green mage. Why wouldn't you feel appreciated if your color is today's special?
With the enormous amount of complaining of getting nothing and getting everything, I'm sure the paradigm will shift someday to complaining why instead of green, we need to include [insert color here] not too far in the future. Either that or we'll continue trends shown on Command Zone and EDHREC podcasts that show people already shying back from overloading their decks with green. is the 4th most represented monocolor and a shared 2nd with in two-color decks, according to EDHREC stats.
In the end, the best advice I can give is: try have more fun with the cards than with the trends, the cards will last, the trends will pass.
