Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

4 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Two more swift ones I recalled, being Falling Star and Sleeper Agent.

I'd sub Kalastria Healer and Zulaport Cutthroat for Blood Artist and Blood Seeker. They have more interaction with your opponent's board than yours. I'd also add Sleeper Agent, it's a solid 1 drop that deals consistent damage.

Thank you a lot for the appreciation Epicurus :)

These are some useful suggestion that i thought about but i found a little bit of problems adding them to my list (at least without some testing) for some reasons:

Seizan, Perverter of Truth is pretty nice, a lot of card draw but is a "lose life" effect which is not doubled by Obosh/Quest for the pure flame/Angrath Marauders, as you can see Forsaken Wastes is the only "lose life" of the deck included because abolishes life gain and punish the one who removes it. There is the problem of giving a lot of value to the opponent (it's a double Phyrexian Arena). requires some testing to see if the damage pays up what we give to our opponents. Is still a pretty good call, maybe Hypotesizzle can be a nice cut for him if someone wants to test. Goes direct to maybeboard

Sleeper Agent i love that card but there are some downsides, if you drop her turn 1 and the opponent that gains control of her knows the deck you are playing will instantly swing at you a couple of times to have an advantage on the "damage spread clock" you are setting, if you drop her late she can be used as a blocker and dies. If someone have sacrifice outlets is even value for them, it's pretty situational and not so reliable, and that hurts me because i wanted to play this card.

Master of the Feast another card i like A LOT, but has no "built in damage" like Nekusar/Fevered Visions or even Seizan. This means is really valuable when you have effects like Underworld Dreams but having him in hand without these is risky, because is free value for 3 opponents. Best used in Nekusar EHD cause you have this effect staple in the command zone.

Lightning Bolt ...that could be a nice card...but we are not lucky with obosh restriction -> Isochron Scepter. A single lightning bolt doesn't impact the game like a Slagstorm (even if it's basically 3 lightning bolt on a single card if used on opponents). The only way to make Lightning bolt in EDH is to make it an engine.

Thank you for the suggestion ! I'm still open for improvements

+1 for DOT decks. Wish I could +1 again, because this is the first deck I've seen on here with a companion.

I picture it being difficult to build with the companion rule. I keep thinking of suggestions, but most of them are even CMC, lol. You probably already thought about them all and couldn't. However...

Ok, that's all I got.

I like the ideas you have here, though I'm not quite sure where Bazaar Trader fits in as you're not exactly trading anything nor do you have anything that would have them at a disadvantage if they had it, i.e. Sleeper Agent . That being said, have you considered Kari Zev's Expertise ? It feels like a strictly better version of Act of Treason and it allows you to play Thud for free. Also Yahenni, Undying Partisan feels like he would be a solid sacrifice outlet for this deck since it is free and he just gets better as the game goes on. Whip of Erebos and Dictate of Erebos could help with some recursion and double your removal. Hope this helps.

GearsGames on Sleep Agent vs Player Hexproof

2 years ago

If the player has Hexproof via cards like or same effect as Leyline of Sanctity and I play Sleeper Agent Do they still get control of it or does it stay on my side of the field of play?

I feel like it should stay with me but, it's moving to their field of play so just wanted to double check since it's language states that it targets a player. (In this case one that is untargetable via Hexproof).

awesome deck, love me some Xantcha. Have you considered cards like Hunted Horror , Sleeper Agent , or Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor ? Your deck seems to focus more on getting xantchas effect off, I don't know if these will fit, but can be fun polictaically and lend to group slug tactics.
