Shifting Shadow Discussion

EPICSpider23 on Randomized Mayael, Spinning the Lottery Wheel!!!

2 months ago

I think this is one of my new favourite decks, beautiful concept. Could spice things up even more with the likes of Wheel of Misfortune, Shifting Shadow, Sunbird's Invocation, Territorial Hellkite, Dreamshaper Shaman and Possibility Storm just so everyone else can experience your lottery wheel. Even Whims of the Fates makes for an interesting game of commander. Keep brewing awesome decks like this!

king-saproling on The Curse of Ardenn and Ludevic

Captivating Glance seems like it'd be very good here, as the control effect continues to apply even after the glance moves to something else. Custody Battle works similarly. And Fractured Loyalty, which is particularly strong because you can target the enchanted creature with Ardenn's ability to get the creature, then later move fractured loyalty to something else with Ardenn's ability and repeat the process to gain multiple creatures over time.

These might interest you too: Captain's Hook (attach to opp's creature using Ardenn, then pass it along to keep destroying dudes), Assault Suit, Infectious Rage, Steam Vines, Shifting Shadow, Spirit Link, Aurelia, the Warleader, Spark Double, Copy Enchantment, Clever Impersonator

Cmi1103 on Marchesa, Karate Chop Surprise!

8 months ago

Marchesa is amazing! She makes your board state so hard to deal with it's great! This is my version of her:Life After Death, and Death After Life Perhaps slightly more focused on the recursion and ETB effects. But love some straight up aggro! You might consider Shifting Shadow, which can help cheat out more creatures as long as you are able to get counters on them to bring them back with Marchesa. Also Treasonous Ogre can be a good way to manage your life total to keep off the throne for the dethrone ability while adding mana to help get out more creatures for you!

Crow-Umbra on Aleshé

Hi there, I saw your deck on /r/EDH, and thought I'd offer some pieces of feedback, as I've been brewing and playing Alesha a lot these past few months.

Personally, I'd suggest removing both Grenzo and Chainer, as they aren't super consistent, and their abilities can compete with Alesha's activated ability. If you want repeatable discard, I'd suggest Perpetual Timepiece and/or Sands of Delirium. Perpetual Timepiece can also be an insurance piece against graveyard hate. Also, you may want to replace Ashnod's Altar with Altar of Dementia, since you can either self-mill or ping opponents.

In a similar vein as the suggestions for Grenzo and Chainer, check out Twilight Prophet as a potential replacement for Mentor of the Meek. Mentor's activation may compete with Alesha in early turns.

Also, I'd suggest Smothering Tithe over Greed, since opponents usually don't pay the Tithe cost in earlier turns. Similarly, Curse of Opulence can help you ramp and shift a target to someone else's back.

Shifting Shadow can help filter through your deck and also fill up your graveyard

If you want other creatures like Master of Cruelties, check out Virtus the Veiled, Graveblade Marauder, Stigma Lasher, Raving Dead

You may want to consider replacing Elenda with something like Noosegraf Mob or Chittering Witch. Elenda may get hated out before she gets big enough for a decent pay off. Noosegraf Mob will "punish" opponents for just playing as they normally would, and can be recurred, and Chittering Witch will always ETB with at most 3 tokens (or however big your games usually are). Chittering Witch also has a sac outlet that can be used for removal, but does compete with Alesha.

If you'd like, check out my Alesha deck Awkward Eye Contact with Death. My build is a bit more of combo/go wide with evasive creatures if combo fails or isn't online yet. I run stuff like Impact Tremors and Syr Konrad, the Grim, to get group-slug damage off of ETBs and LTBs. In my description, I also have some links to other Alesha decks I used as primers, and there is some good feedback in my archived comments.

RambIe on Best way to cast Ulamog, …

9 months ago

almost forgot

Shifting Shadow works just as good and sticks because Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is indestructible

not as good but Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Sneak Attack other good ways to temp out fatty's

king-saproling on Awkward Eye Contact with Death

Looks good! You might like these: Herald of Leshrac, Rotting Rats, Palace Jailer (this one is neat because you can sack and reanimate him to exile multiple creatures. opps won't get their creatures back unless they become monarch. he also replaces himself with the monarch draw which is nice), Dark-Dweller Oracle, Mangara of Corondor (activate the ability, then sack Mangara while the ability is on the stack. it will resolve but Mangara will not be exiled), Skullclamp, Pitiless Plunderer, Grim Haruspex, Shifting Shadow, Fanatical Devotion, Bishop of Rebirth, Custodi Soulcaller, Stingscourger, Crackling Doom, Siege-Gang Commander, Bounty Agent
