Sword of Feast and Famine Discussion

Yeah if everyone tries to win the same way, Opposition Agent gets better. That's why its mere existence invites you to be creative, should shake up the meta, and punishes players for just copying what's good and popular. Punishes people for optimizing their greedy 4/5-color mana bases with all 10 fetches. If you don't run Thoracle Consultation, they can't find your pieces for themselves to use. Your sultai deck can take my Sword of Feast and Famine when my Open the Armory gets Oppo Agented. Good luck with it, I'll smash your face with a Colossus Hammer anyway.

I'm optimistic in my views of thàt being Oppo's intended purpose, shaking up the format and breeding creativity to deal with that card's existence. Instead, we mostly got complaints from players with uniform top-tier lists that got punished for playing what everyone else is playing. Those are the exact players the card is meant to punish, I have a hard time feeling sorry for them '^^

As mentioned, Hullbreacher 's utility is a lot less reliant on your opponent's deck to abuse with silly results, and therefor a lot more pressing as a problem. I do feel a bit sad that I never got to resolve one in real life after purchasing one, due to the practical difficulties of live play in quarantaine times, but I understand the ban.

griffstick on First to suffer: a deck for experimenting cards

I'm so glad that other players have this cmdr and enjoy playing it. The initial idea with this deck was to have creatures that are large enough to dodge the board wipe but then it just turned into a deck with random fun things. Cards that I wanted to test. Hatred is a good suggestion and I own one too. I also wanted to be Demon tribal. The thing is the deck struggles to find an identity and I kinda like that. I really enjoy doing the unexpected. And this deck does that well.

Going creature-less seems like the smart thing to do. But I'm a creature kind of guy. Also check out Strands of Night . That card is so good. But its cards like that I didn't know was good until I tested it out. That's kinda what makes this deck fun and unique. Same thing can be said about Karn, Silver Golem . I put jim in because I wanted to be able to remove artifacts with my cmdr and that's working great. But theres other applications with him like simply turning someone's Sword of Feast and Famine into a creature just to make the equipment fall off.

As some examples:

Why does the sideboard exist, and why exactly eleven cards?

Why do you get a legendary permanent of each type? I see this not as a restriction, but as broadening the gap between ultra cards, strong cards, and decent cards. If one person brings Silent Submersible , Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice , Paradox Engine , and Sword of Feast and Famine , having those cards always available is going to leave almost no chance for whatever was cobbled together from Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Radha, Heir of Keld, Grimoire of the Dead , and Demonmail Hauberk . The consistency is incredibly high, and I'm sure a more extreme example could be easily created.

What's the purpose of the baubles and trinkets?

Since there are loss restrictions, a dedicated Stax or Turbo Fog deck could potentially make the whole game virtually unwinnable for anyone. Is this a viable strategy, or should it be discouraged?

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Nice deck, you have good card sense with a high budget.

Grand Abolisher and Conqueror's Flail are helpful to protect Wyleth on your turn to safely equip and attack. Puresteel Paladin is repeatable draw with equips as well as can be 0 cost equip. If adding Puresteel than adding a few artifact lands: Ancient Den and Great Furnace helps to activate metalcraft. Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard can get Stoneforge or another support creature.

Could replace the Diamonds with Signets: Arcane Signet and Boros Signet since they make either color and ETB untapped. Mox Opal and Mox Amber are more powerful mana rocks for more speed. Aggravated Assault combos with Sword of Feast and Famine for infinite attacks. Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Mask of Memory are good equips especially with double strike.

Spectator Seating is a Boros dual land upgrade. Bloodstained Mire and Windswept Heath are two more Fetch lands. Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver can protect Wyleth for no mana cost. Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast are helpful to counter an opponent's counterspell. Generous Gift and Chaos Warp are removal spell upgrades. Jeska's Will is a powerful ritual.

If interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice of cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Sword of Feast and Famine ? I could understand why you might not include this though because you wont be able to target skullbriar with your own spells.

Thank you, glad you enjoyed this deck! I cut the oracle because I didn't like playing that combo. It just didn't feel like the others... maybe because it's a really abused card or because it didn't quite fit the theme of this list. Technically it's still "winning by flipping coins" because of Frenetic Efreet but it felt more like "winning by playing Thassa's Oracle ". I felt the same about Aggravated Assault and Sword of Feast and Famine and that's why I cut that combo too.

But there's also a less personal and more practical reason: the oracle is totally useless outside of that single combo and I found out that I could win more or less in the same way without even using it. Check the "End game with Zndrsplt" panel for all the details.

I cheated and used the judge promo Crucible of Worlds and Sword of Feast and Famine because they're really good with my deck.
