Niko9 on Advice For Olivia CMDR

I think RiotRunner789 is correct in saying that Olivia is probably not cEDH, but she can probably be very good.

Self mill seems like it would work well here. Necropotence can not only give you amazing draw and selection, but also allow you to discard good stuff to hand size that Olivia will come in and reanimate.

I play Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld which is similar, but in black and red you can get better mill. There are artifact mill that might be useful here though. Mesmeric Orb is great but will draw almost instant removal. Things like Shriekhorn Grindclock Codex Shredder Altar of Dementia Grindstoneare good and especially so if you can recur artifacts or use them extra times with something like Unwinding Clock. The clock also plays really nice with artifact lands. Oh, and always remember that milling your opponents can kill top deck tutors. Keeping your mill artifacts open until it's coming back to your turn can kill a lot of these effects.

The Underworld Cookbook can also be really nice to get biggies in the graveyard if you draw them, and also bring back creatures late game. Trading Post is just lovely, and 4cmc seems like a lot, but it always does something great for you.

Artifact strategy with Inventors' Fair can be great here. Also, black reanimation like Unearth are always going to work wonders. In my experience, it's not too useful to focus on expensive reanimation because that's what your commander wants to do, but smaller reanimation for value can be good.

The one thing to remember if you do any mill strategy is that you are going to mill your bombs away. It's often better to have ways to get things back than it is to play things that are great but you have no way to get back.

I don't have a ton of experience with B/R in edh, so take it all with a grain of salt for sure. I just wonder if Olivia would be better for cEDH in the 99. Having access to more colors is always a plus, and I'd think that Olivia would be very nice in something like Kess, Dissident Mage. Kess can recur reanimation spells that can bring out a nice hasty Olivia who can swing in and bring back another creature. Plus you get access to blue and all the sweet blue instants.

One big issue with Olivia in competitive groups is that your bomb is always there in the command zone. Most blue decks will try to save a counter spell just for her if they can. You could play discard and hand disruption to target blue players to help with this.

Hope it helps :) Olivia is looking cooler than ever, and it's such a great card. I just don't know if she can keep up with the speed of TandT, Malcolm, food chain, or really fast ad naus decks in cEDH.

jacobpmesser Thanks for all the great suggestions! Unearth, Shriekhorn, and Fiend Artisan are immediate adds. I'll do some play testing with the other cards and see if they fit in this deck. Would really prefer it stay Golgari, but I do know that there is a ton of great blue mill cards out there.

You know what's better than exiling your own stuff? Bringing it back. Not budget but add a few fetches, Renegade Rallier and Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Maybe some Unearth. Then, Archfiend's Vessel because a 5/5 flier on t2 is awesome. You could Persist Vessel and still get the 5/5. I play blue w/ Satyr Wayfinder (prob your best self-mill after Stitcher w/o going into blue for Hedron Crab) There's also Shriekhorn. No Fiend Artisan? And then, if you self-mill, Laboratory Maniac and (I play blue) Lazav, the Multifarious in case it gets milled. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Splinterfright, Nighthowler. Collector Ouphe for art gy hate. I think Desecrated Tomb is kind of useless without a good recur-engine.

Thanks rb701 for youre comment!

Yeah im still struggeling with the Sideboard, i never used the most Cards except for Golem's Heart and Pitiless Plunderer. So there is a lot to do here.

I never heard of Sands of Delirium but that seems to fit perfect in here combined with Blinkmoth Urn. I will definitly try it out!

But im not sure if i just should remove Blinkmoth Urn since i never really needed it and the deck is running pretty well at the moment.

Maybe i should put somthing like Grave Pact against creature heavy decks and something like Tormod's Crypt in?

Any other ideas what to Change?

At the Moment im thinking of something like this:

1 x Tormod's Crypt Graveyard hate

1 x Grave Pact Creatures

2 x Altar of the Brood more mill

2 x Shriekhorn after the three uses, can be sacrificed to Grinding Station an with Scrap Trawler it can bring back some "0" cost Cards. Also its another target after sacrificing Ichor Wellspring

1 x Locket of Yesterdays So we only need to pay the first Myr Servitor and against mill decks

1 x Profane Memento lifegain against aggro

4 x Feed the Swarm

1 x Summoning Station

1 x Genesis Chamber

1 x Pitiless Plunderer

I did a bit more research into PD reanimator decks to find cheap cards, copies of Life / Death are $3 and it basically a 2 mana Reanimate .

Shriekhorn is 17 cents and mills for 6, 2 per turn.

Divest can let you see if re-animating is safe from removal/countermagic and you can target yourself to get fatties in the yard. Raven's Crime also works, and these are probably better than 2 cmc discard outlets.

Sire Of Insanity dodges any sorcery speed removal.

Lastly, Nihil Spellbomb only hits enemy yards and draws you a card. Worth considering for the sideboard.

I really like Flickerform, Gift of Immortality, Ephemerate, and Conjurer's Closet with Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves. Great ways of protecting him and getting reuse out of his enter the battlefield (ETB) ability!

I also really like Sword of the Paruns. Tolsimir usually wants you to play lots of wolves so that you can use his ability. You can use Sword of the Paruns to boost your wolves on defense when they ETB and fight!

Suggestions:

I would recommend maybe replacing Gods Willing, Blessed Breath, Realms Uncharted, Unexpectedly Absent, Inspire Awe, & Stand Firm with Make a Stand, Unbreakable Formation, Rootborn Defenses, Brave the Elements, Swords to Plowshares, & Path to Exile

Seek the Horizon could be upgraded to Explosive Vegetation

Heraldic Banner fits the deck really well! Some other good cards in that vein would be Marshal's Anthem, Leonin Sun Standard, Adaptive Automaton, Spear of Heliod, or Vanquisher's Banner. You could replace Shriekhorn, Mindcrank, Conjurer's Bauble, Ghoulcaller's Bell, & Grindclock with the recommendations.

Thank you very much for your detailed answers. I did a couple of test games with your deck and your Teshar-deck has won all my respect. Congratulations on this fantastic deck building! I quickly realized how strong Shimmer Myr, Emergence Zone, Shriekhorn, etc. are, which I was initially skeptical about. And indeed: Verge Rangers would be too slow on the deck. Too bad that Fiend Hunter has toughness 3. Creatures exiling permanently would be chic. One question remains: I saw the Claws of Gix card in other deck lists. What do you think of the card? I think, any-permanent-sacoutlet sounds pretty cool.

Beautiful deck. I have my own Teshar deck. A lot is similar, but I saw some interesting differences with you. I have the following questions about your deck building:

  1. Why do you play Path to Exile instead of Swords to Plowshares? Do you want to keep the option open to ramp yourself or shuffle your library?

  2. What is your experience with the Shimmer Myr and Emergence Zone cards? Do you really often use the flash effect?

  3. I play Verge Rangers in my Teshardeck. I am fascinated by how this card synergizes with "eggs", Sensei's Divining Top, Millcards, Fetchlands, tutors, etc. The key effect of the card is "You may look at the top card of your library any time". What do you think of the card? Have you already tested the card?

  4. Furthermore I play Heliod, Sun-Crowned in my Teshardeck. The card is a historic spell and Heliod, Sun-Crowned goes infinite with Walking Ballista. Otherwise, the card does little. I'm not sure if Heliod, Sun-Crowned is good enough. What do you think?

  5. What is your experience with the Shriekhorn, Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell? Sure, the effects are good. But are the effects really worth filling three card slots? I will try out the three cards myself and am curious to see how they will works.

  6. I have seen the Banisher Priest card in several deck lists, but I have never tried it myself. Is the card that good? And if so why?

I would be happy if you would give me answers to my questions.
