Rite of Replication Discussion

Harogi on Simic is Cool

Firstly, thanks for the comment Kjartan, I really appreciate the feedback, after a little play testing, i think swapping out Gyre Engineer for some Llanowar Elves would be a great idea, sadly Birds of Paradise is a little out of my price range. Our play group is a little more casual than most so I tend to avoid running removal but I love the idea of Ulvenwald Tracker 's synergy with Prophet of Kruphix , so I might give him a shot too. I do like the idea of a huge bomb spell, my first thought was Rite of Replication but that was a little too costly so maybe Increasing Savagery could be a nice substitute. I'm picturing a game with a 15/16 Gyre Sage sinking the mana into my Biogenic Ooze . Thanks for the help, I've got lots to consider

BLOODGUILT on mono blue mill

Lonelyyoshi1 The reason Mill decks work is because you strip your opponent's resources away from them before they can ever draw them. Basically, making someone mill is control. You want to be milling cards from your opponent every turn and right now you have two strategies in your deck. Creature and draw. the two strategies cross over with Psychic Corrosion , Hedron Crab , because both of those say "do something you're gonna do every turn and mill your opponent" Now the Creature strategy would be a focus on Sage's Row Denizen . Fewer spells and add value creatures. Merfolk Trickster , Cloudkin Seer , Frost Lynx , Fblthp, the Lost . I'm sure the great minds of this forum can list much better versions then i can but those are the few i know right now without google. The whole goal of this version would be to get Sage's Row Denizen out and play a "draw go" style unless you need to play a value creature. I would even run creature copying effects to really abuse the sage like Quasiduplicate , Mirror Image , Spark Double , Rite of Replication . you would have to drop most of your planeswalkers and maybe only keep Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor and run other effects like Blink of an Eye , Callous Dismissal to out value your opponent until you can go nuclear with your sages. at least thats how i would do a creature version. The draw version focuses more on Psychic Corrosion and control. You would run instant speed draw spells like Opt , Radical Idea , Chemister's Insight so you can keep mana open to counter your opponent with Negate , Cancel , Wizard's Retort , Counterspell . You would be 100% draw go. Your turns would more or less be draw, play a land, trigger Hedron Crab , pass. then you counter your opponents spells. if they don't play anything scary you use all your mana at the end of their turn to use your draw spells and make them mill with Psychic Corrosion . you would want to play a bounce spell, recommend Unsummon and your Jace package to get free draws for the mill. Again, I've already shown i don't know the meta for modern so listen to the other guys commenting. The reason i don't like Jace, Arcane Strategist is because he's 6 cmc and doesn't really move you towards your game plan as fast as the other Jaces do. That is also giving your opponent a free turn with 6-7 mana where they don't have to worry about a counter spell. You could run Force of Negation but you are really taking a risk relying on 1 card to protect you so you can play a Jace that has 30% synergy with your deck. I'd rather play my second Psychic Corrosion and have mana up for Thought Collapse or Opt and Radical Idea . Ultimately it is your deck so have fun with it but these are my thoughts. If you would like i could probably use your card list to build two version of your deck and you can try both out.

Nemesis on Riku Copy Deck

So when I build an edh deck, one of the first things I try to figure out is how I'm going to wrap up the game. General Value can work as a strategy, where you're just trying to outvalue everyone around you, but it's really hard when you don't focus on something specific. For Riku, there are a few paths you can take:

Out - Value everyone: This is kind of the path I was talking about, with tons of valuable ETB and LTB triggers, or big things that you can play early since you're so far ahead from the earlier value plays.

Combo: This is the Rite of Replication Inferno Titan path, along with many many more reasonable and cheaper combos

Alt Wincon: Biovisionary is a good example of this - some decks pick a specific wincon that they want, it can be just one card, and build the deck trying to win around that card. (btw, Rite of Replication is amazing with biovisionary too :P) Often, these decks fall into Combo.

Now, don't get me wrong, your deck is perfectly fine as is. You have tons of value with Riku, protection for him, and a way to win through biovisionary. Could you make it more efficient? definitely. Here are some cards that I'd cut, almost no matter what direction you take the deck:

Phantasmal Terrain : I don't see what this does in your deck

Staff of Nin : Generally too slow and isn't really compatible with your cmdr

Some form of protection: While protection for your guys is great, you may have one too many

One of Abrade , Naturalize , or Shatter with - Vandalblast , Reclamation Sage , or Hull Breach

Deflection , Narset's Reversal , Wild Ricochet : what is your reasoning behind these?

Nemesis on Riku Copy Deck

1 month ago

okay, what would you consider your wincon?

Regardless, here are a few suggestions that can probably fit into any build:

Farhaven Elf : etb ramp, good with Riku

Deadeye Navigator : Etb enabler, suuuuuper broken if you have tons of etb effects

Solemn Simulacrum : etb ramp, ltb draw, excellent target for copying

Rite of Replication : I personally use this with Inferno Titan or Magmatic Force as a wincon in my deck. Super expensive, but it's always a blast to play with Riku

Panharmonicon : if you decide to go the etb route, it's a great enabler.

Urban Evolution : kind of expensive, but does two things really valuable to the deck.

These are all just generic suggestions. I personally have a blast with the deck when it's tuned towards enter the battlefield effects since I get the value immediately with Riku out. Honestly though, these suggestions may be too casual for what you want with the deck.

Have you considered switching from Atraxa to Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as your commanders?

Reyhan is fantastic at abusing +1/+1 counters in combo with Blade of Selves , Rite of Replication and Doubling Season .

If this appeals to you here are links to the Top 3 Reyhan and Ishai +1/+1 counter decks.
