twechsler on Messing with Lore

1 month ago

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you for your suggestions. I am planning on adding Jhoira's Familiar because I think it will run very well in this deck. Thran Dynamo is another great one but I think I have a lot of mana ramp cards right now (about 16). In the future, I could swap that out for Burnished Hart or Excavation Technique as I think these are the worst mana cards right now. Similar story for Myr Retriever but I agree because he is very mana efficient. I have 9 cards for recursion not including osgir but I can definitely swap the myr in for Sun Titan or Refurbish. I know Lightning Greaves has some infinite combo ability because of its 0 mana cost to equip but I'll probably get the cheaper of the two unless you really think that its worth the extra dough. Once again thank you so much for taking the time to help me out.

Refurbish would allow a faster way to get Citadel onto the battefield, but you would need ways to dump it into your library, which are often G/B rather than W/B. I really like the idea though, especially if you’re able to activate the main angels you’d be earning more life per cast than paying. It’s really clever.

Maybe adding some delirium elements? Plus, splashing green could give you Vizier of Remedies + Devoted Druid for mana or even just Noble Hierarch or Birds of Paradise . Sorry, not super helpful.

Birds is a surprisingly well supported tribe, and flying tribal has been getting a fair bit of support recently. So building birds in commander can be both fun and powerful because you can combine old and new cards.

A creature has to be a Legendary creature to be legal as your commander. The classic option for birds would be Kangee, Aerie Keeper . Some other options that are more "Flying tribal" than bird tribal could be Kangee, Sky Warden (a very budget-friendly option), Isperia the Inscrutable , Akim, the Soaring Wind , Derevi, Empyrial Tactician or Alela, Artful Provocateur .

Now you should decide whether you want cards that support having Birds specifically: Aven Brigadier , Celestial Gatekeeper , Crookclaw Elder , Seaside Haven , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Airborne Aid , Migratory Route , Animal Sanctuary etc. Or if you just want cheap flyers that may or may not be birds and just play flying tribal: Battle Screech , Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift , Gust of Wind , Island Sanctuary , Kangee's Lieutenant , Lofty Denial , Pride of the Clouds , Rally of Wings , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Siani, Eye of the Storm , Skycat Sovereign , Soulcatcher , The Raven's Warning , Thunderclap Wyvern , Tide Skimmer , Warden of Evos Isle , Watcher of the Spheres , Waterkin Shaman , Windstorm Drake , Winged Words , Battle Screech .

Your list has a lot of pretty bad cards that don't support your strategy. I would cut Healing Salve , Resupply , Take Up Arms , Call to Mind , Survival Cache , Refurbish (has 4 targets in your deck and no matter what you get you pay more mana than you should), Siegecraft etc. Pure lifegain spells are bad unless you build around them, and this is supposed to be a bird/flying deck right? Cards that make tokens without flying are not great because your lords and synergy don't make them better. So even though Raise the Alarm is a solid magic card, you would prolly rather have like a Mistral Charger because you can build synergy around it.

Removal is always good. You can almost never have too much of it. However, if you are really cool, you can try to play removal and card draw that is flavorful and synergistic as well: Ravenform , Wing Shards , Aerial Assault , Swan Song , Winged Words , Gust of Wind , Lofty Denial . Also, sol ring is great but more ramp is usually a good idea in commander, and Azorius Keyrune is also a bird!

Good luck with the screechy dudes!

abby315 on Breya, Etherium Shaper cEDH combos!

7 months ago

I'm definitely not up to date with the cEDH meta, but I have a few suggestions that I think are just better cards:

If it's just there to tutor a combo piece like Ironworks, I would think you'd want Tinker over Arcum Dagsson , especially because it can grab creature artifacts as well;

Whir of Invention should definitely be in here, maybe over Storm the Vault  Flip which is slow;

You definitely should be running more interaction, especially in these colors. I'd recommend trying to fit in at least some of the following: Swan Song , Force of Negation , Flusterstorm , Mental Misstep , Opposition Agent , Pyroblast , Red Elemental Blast . If I had to make cuts, I'd start with the Mycosynth Lattice / Nevinyrral's Disk combo, which is slow; Open the Vaults and Refurbish since you don't have much self-mill to make these a speedier option for getting a combo out; and either the Time Sieve / Thopter Assembly combo because it's slow or the Felidar Guardian / Saheeli Rai combo because you don't have many ways to find it and neither piece is especially useful on its own.

I hope this helps! In general I think paring down the list to support 1-2 combo lines using Breya, then shoring up the protection for that combo, will serve you well.

Refurbish always seems hella busted to me, could be even better here!

Omniscience_is_life on What are your favorite underused, …

I love Mausoleum Secrets as a hella cheap instant speed tutor, and I think Aid from the Cowl provides nice extra-extra fancy scrying with a super easy-to-meet requirement, and Captured by the Consulate is fun to force an opponent to waste a removal spell or something of the sort. Seeker of the Way is a great creature to drop all your buffs on, and Center Soul is an interesting protection spell that you can use the next turn to get some damage in. Congregation at Dawn is awesome for cheating things off your deck, and Dispel is I feel the most underused actually-good counterspell ever. Destiny Spinner can make some massive creatures and keep your unresolved spells of all sorts safe, and Refurbish is super cracked at getting massive artifacts back onto the battlefield cheeaap (think Cataclysmic Gearhulk-type cards) and finally, Looming Altisaur is the best voltron commander I’ve ever seen.

Return to Dust
Revoke Existence
Forsake the Worldly
^ The above 3 are all pretty much better than disenchant because they exile. Choose one or maybe all 3.

For removal, there are a lot of good Oblivion Ring style effects. You might want Gideon's Intervention to stop problematic commanders and the like as well.

Inventors' Fair is anothe good land you could use. Also grab an Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel as well to maximize artifact synergies. Refurbish , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , and Open the Vaults can also let you get things out of your graveyard.

Don't forget key tutors like Enlightened Tutor and Open the Armory

Reya is probably too expensive. Sun Titan is better.
Cut Heavenly Blademaster, you don't have enough creatures to take advantage of her.
Kemba, Kha Regent would be a more appropriate one because she generates tokens as blockers and swarmers if neede.
I'm not huge on Nahiri, the Lithomancer . 5 mana to not really get a lot done but make a 1/1 and equip it once. Similarly, Ajani Goldmane doesn't seem to do a lot in your deck. I think walkers like Ugin, the Ineffable and Elspeth, Sun's Champion might just straight up be better fits. You want to capitalize on that artifact synergy.
If you absolutely need something expensive and threatening, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn or Heliod, God of the Sun are good options with baked-in indestructible.

as for artifacts and equipment, I don't think you're gonna get a lot out of Voltaic Servant or Voltaic Key . It might be better to put in other cards here. Etched Champion comes to mind.

Land Tax and Smothering Tithe may also be very big includes. The second generates artifacts for anything that needs them as well as makes lots of mana or slows your opponents down considerably. Both are good for you.

Finally, you have some fun infinite mana generation in there but... what does it do? You've got no real payoff for abusing Basalt Monolith. There's no way to chain or bounce things, no aetherflux resrvoir, etc. Maybe instead of Doubling Cube , you run more linear ramp like Sword of the Animist , Explorer's Scope , or Land Tax

Salty_Sauce on Artifact Assassination

I just looked up the ruling while writing this comment Marionette Master 's ability checks on resolution so you would deal 8 and the second trigger would deal 0. With having to use Refurbish to reanimate God-Pharoah's Gift it is doubtful that you will draw another. Especially considering that you are on the self mill plan. Some sac outlets that I think are much better are Cartel Aristocrat Blood Bairn Butcher of the Horde
