Reaper King Discussion

thenewlollipopjam on Jeepers Reapers, exploding Scarecrows!

Molten Echoes is a better flameshadow conjuring. Urza can tap all your scarecrows for blue Mana. I actually play a changeling tribal Scarecrow deck. Has Reaper King as commander, has Scuttlemutt and maybe Wild-Field Scarecrow. I revel in the jank.

Klothys, God of Destiny turns destroyed lands into mana.

Could also use Reaper King w/changelings and just trim unwanted colors maybe for Jund/Gruul.

Seems to be more 'self land destruction' around than MLD. Guess it's just that taboo.

That’s a good question DeinoStinkus, apparently wizards weren’t being mindful when they printed the wedges.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Niv-Mizzet Reborn Reaper King The First Sliver General Tazri Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Even cards older than those like Sliver Overlord follow the “color wheel” that’s found on the back of every MTG card. Idk why the wekdge cards are different.

However I just seen Jodah, Archmage Eternal and his activated ability followed WUBRG color wheel but his personal CMC does not.

@DeinoStinkus, as far as I can tell they all were printed on two unique cards being Reaper King and their own special cycle in Shadowmoor. None of them would ever be used again, not even in Modern Horizons or any of the Un-sets. So it's not like any given one of them has had three unique printings. Since he said four mana symbols were returning this would mean they'd have an incomplete cycle if they ran those mana symbols unless some card has escaped me that has already used that symbol once more than the others.

At first glance I thought this was lovely jank, but this is actually kinda crazy with all the lords and anthems. It's like slivers without the slivers (and it's actually the Gemhide Sliver you have that made me realize that lol). It would definitely be fun to pilot, and it's pretty fair to boot so no complaining when you win. ;^)

One thing I would recommend is adding in a lot more ramp through rocks. Your lands are good, but you really need to be able accelerate your mana in order to be able to consistently put your lads out on the field. Perhaps you could take out some of your more innocuous changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride, Universal Automaton, and Woodland Changeling in favor of more mana rocks, because realistically you probably don't want to be drawing a basic changeling that doesn't do much on its own. You'd probably much rather draw something like a Sol Ring, or even a Fellwar Stone since you're running 5 colors anyway (you would still need more than just these 2). You'll also probably want more stack interaction through counterspells or cards like Veil of Summer just to make sure your important spells and your commander actually make it onto the field. You might get one game where people underestimate the value you can get out of your commander, but after that people probably aren't going to let you play him without some resistance.

Also, allow me to introduce something potentially degenerate yet fair into this deck that might make it pretty fun if you can build around it. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, if you were to somehow work out a way of consistently finding him, discarding him, and then protecting him, could make this deck very silly lol. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Nameless Inversion itself is a pretty good combo, but imagine recurring everything in your deck constantly with a bunch of ETB lol triggers going off every time you do it. If you could streamline that and protect your important combo pieces people wouldn't know if they should hate you because of the unfair value you're getting, or love you because of the nonsense you've managed to pull off. JUST an idea.

I really do love this deck. I had never considered changelings with Reaper King, I don't know why. You've inspired me. :^)

This is actually a really interesting take on mono g tron since Chromatic Star and such can help reduce Reaper King's cost a lot. Since all the scarecrows are colorless though, you should definitely add a playset of Ancient Stirrings. To improve consistency, I think you should drop some of the signets and maybe a forest for Sylvan Scrying and the fourth Expedition Map.

I love this deck. It's a great change of pace from the five color Reaper King deck I've been playing around with. I'm curious what you would use instead of those few really expensive cards? I'm not sure how my group feels about proxies. Honestly I'm kind of on the fence about them myself. What I'm not on the fence about is ever in any scenario paying triple digits for a single card.

You may want to consider Rite of Replication And Panharmonicon. If you cast the rite on Reaper King it triggers his ability for each copy, plus each sees every other copy entering at the same time. If you have the panharmonicon out it’ll double each trigger.
