Reality Shift


Exile target creature. Its controller manifests the top card of his or her library. (That player puts the top card of his or her library onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. If it's a creature card, it can be turned face up at any time for its mana cost.)

Reality Shift Discussion

Artatras- hey, thanks for the quick responses. I'm definately taking some cards you've mentioned into consideration. I just made a huge (for my budget) upgrade purchase from Card Kingdom last night to effectively remove the selfmill strategy I had going on. Unfortunately, the Wall of Blood was out of stock, so next upgrade purchase will probably have to be from TCG Player if it's not back in stock during the next round of upgrades.

Reality Shift and Tale's End where both cards I just missed in my purchase, so, well, they got kicked to the next round of upgrades :/

Along with Reality Shift and Tale's End , the next round of upgrades will include Entomb , Swan Song and my Land package.

I really, really hate that price tag on Phyrexian Dreadnought and Intuition . Because of that tag, if I can't work a trade out, I'll have to wait until tax season for that sweet sweet refund for either of them, or both.

As for the cantrip package, thanks! I figured that without those evil tutors, they would at least add some consistency to the deck. Now, I just cut Telling Time from the deck, but having second thoughts and kinda want it back, but still not sure.

Lightning Greaves , I have one, it's in my Angel tribal deck. That deck has sentimental value to me, so I don't really want to pluck good cards out of it, and I don't really like to use proxies. I may have to bite the bullet and get a new one, especially that sick new art in C19, if I can't persuade my one friend to part with his copy.

Hi jconeil1988!

I really like you inclusion of cantrips like Brainstorm , Ponder and Preordain , as I think they give your deck more consistency.

I'm not a huge fan of Murder . It think you can safely go with Reality Shift , as the exile effect is much more useful.

I recommend you try Wall of Blood . It costs less than a dollar but it's incredibly efficient, especially in conjunction with Banehound . I guess you can remove either Nyxathid or Rotting Regisaur . They present a three-turn clock, while the Wall is an OTK.

The rest of the deck feels very smooth and is a very good starting point that doesn't need too many upgrades. If you enjoy the deck, the very first upgrades I would make are undoubtedly Phyrexian Dreadnought , Intuition , Lightning Greaves and Entomb . While all the other cards can be replaced with decent alternatives, these four are crucial to the strategy. The Dreadnought in particular will completely change the way you play the deck, as it will shorten your route to victory by a lot.

I'm seeing 2 copies of Omniscience in your list right now. This is skewing your CMC avg and curve so a little harder to figure out where you actually are on the scale as it will depend on what you replace it with.

I don't think having some targeted removal is a bad idea. Sometimes you just need one oppressive thing gone and then you can implement your strategy. However, as things don't stay dead in this format, that targeted removal is better off being an exile effect if possible. A card like Reality Shift will make sure that creature stays gone. I agree that By Force is a pretty good include. An overloaded Vandalblast does work too. Tyrant's Scorn and Enter the God-Eternals are a little underwhelming for EDH, they really don't do enough for their CMC in this format.

Arcane Signet will be amazing for the deck...once it's available for sale. Have to wait for Throne to come out for that.

As for In Bolas's Clutches ? I know it's a more expensive Control Magic where you don't really care that much about making the target legendary but the flavor is there and the versatility of being able to steal any permanent could be relevant if the target is spice enough.

Megagrayus on Yuriko Ninja EDH

Hi! A friend in my playgroup runs a Yuriko deck, and coming from an opponent of his, here are some interesting things you might be able to do to be more impactful!

Most of your damage is likely to come from flipping high CMC cards off the top of your deck, so you’ll want to be able to hit high if you can. You can get away with running generally higher CMC effects for things because of the extra damage they do, like running In Garruk's Wake instead of Damnation . Not only are cards like that more damaging over all, but they often come with better effects for the cost, and tend to be lighter on your wallet too. It also lets you run some big splashy cards that can be run as alternate win conditions too, like Enter the Infinite and Omniscience . Ways to manipulate the top of your library are great too, like the Brainstorm you’re already running. Doubling up on effects like that through cards like Soothsaying can make sure you can make the biggest splash you can when it’s time to flip some stuff off the top.

Because you’re incentivized to run high CMC cards to deal more damage with Yuriko, you’ll probably want to keep your creatures with a lower casting cost. You’re already running cards like Invisible Stalker which are awesome for ninjitsu tricks, but they also synergize well with mass-bounce effects, letting you rebuild quickly and letting you re-use ninjitsu abilities. Mass-bounce board wipe effects like Evacuation and Drawn from Dreams can be really strong helping you slow down your enemies while jamming ninjas down newly open lanes before your opponents can rebuild. Haste isn’t common in these colors, but Banehound and Nether Traitor might be worth considering thanks to how cheap they are, especially right after an evacuation cast. Leyline of Anticipation is a great pickup for this deck too, since casting a creature on the opponent before you’s End Step is a great way to get basically-sorta-haste, and it’s pretty cheap since it’s recent reprint!

The last thing I’d like to recommend is that you consider running more targeted removal! Your list looks like you definitely have a good grasp on what yuriko wants to do and how she wants to do it, so you might want to dedicate more space to trying to stop your opponent’s plans. You’ve got some nice tools available to you like Reality Shift , Go for the Throat , or even things like Ob Nixilis Reignited to grant more flexibility on a high CMC card. Instant speed is great where you can get it to be extra tricky while setting up attacks with ninjas, but don’t be afraid to include something weird with an overcosted CMC! There’s nothing more satisfying than flipping a card like Plague Wind with yuriko, and then immediately casting it! Good luck with your build, and I hope this helped!

I think that you have enough ramp and CA that you can cut two or even three lands. Unwind is also objectively not great, and I think a bit more removal should be added. Swords to Plowshares , Reality Shift , and Path to Exile are all great options.

Nice deck! I noticed all your removal is temporary. Maybe cards like Reality Shift , Rapid Hybridization , Pongify , and Curse of the Swine will help you take care of problem permanents better?

Another Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal line involves copying Isochron Scepter with Copy Artifact and imprinting Reality Shift . You then exile your opponents creatures with Reality Shift , and then you hit their decks by exiling all of the manifested creatures. I don't know if you would consider the combo for your deck but if so it's there.

Dig deeper into the Sultai Morph precon decklist and you can find lot of reason to buy it. The manabase alone may be one of the better manabases for a three color Commander precon. Eleven nonbasic lands ETB untapped which is by precon standards an improvement from past precon manabases.

Why are the Signet lands ( Darkwater Catacombs ) being printed as rare lands? These lands don't actually make mana without having another land/one mana first, this is not an ability that's rare. These should be uncommon since they're much worse than Filter lands ( Sunken Ruins ) which are also rare lands.

Land value in the precon (in order):

I'm happy to see Ash Barrens reprinted because it's land that should be in every Commander precon. There's 17 two drops which is an improvement for precon deck building. Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer look like good cards for morph. Silencer will however not hold at $10 of value it will decrease a lot. I don't know enough about the 13 other new cards to evaluate their value in the precon.

Valuable reprints in the Sultai deck (in order):

Some notable exclusions for a morph theme:
