Talisman of Hierarchy Discussion

What's your budget, and what sort of ultimate power level are you looking for?

In b/w, you'll definitely want to rock all your mana rocks. Orzhov Signet, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Hierarchy, and some number of colorless, depending on your build/preference, like Mind Stone, Everflowing Chalice, definitely Sol Ring, possibly Wayfarer's Bauble, etc.

I would strongly recommend getting a "backup" commander, in case the playgroup won't allow a walker - I personally loathe walkers as commanders, so it'd be a bad night to show up and be told they don't want to play. On that note, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a great Cleric commander.

The things to focus your budget on, overall, will be card draw, ramp, and removal; most of the non-cEDH "engine" cards won't cost that much, but things like sweepers, good targeted removal, and good card draw definitely will. And, of course, the good tutors are very expensive. You can also make a reasonably-budget reanimator list that'll work well, which will let you abuse something like Vilis, Broker of Blood.

The best all-encompassing resource will be looking at existing lists on here, edhrec, or similar.

Cheers!

The easiest way to make a deck more competitive is with more card draw, ramp (mana), and interaction (removal). Getting close to 10 for each of those categories is a good place to be. For this deck I'd suggest Vanishing Verse, Path to Exile, and Heliod's Intervention for removal; Arcane Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, Millikin, Springleaf Drum, and Priest of Forgotten Gods for ramp; Mentor of the Meek, Idol of Oblivion, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, Mangara, the Diplomat, and Esper Sentinel for draw.

Good luck with the deck! :3

Hey, well done so far on a budget.

Consider the Emeria Shepherd + Pyre of Heroes interaction with basic Plains? Shepherd is an Angel to reanimate because then she along with Plains can reanimate any nonland permanent. The interaction of these two cards comes from being able to sac an Angel to tutor for to cheat another one onto the battlefield and then reanimate the Angel you just saced with Shepherd. Just by playing a land Shepherd can get a nonland permanent into your hand such as Mind Stone to cast to help to trigger Firja.

Angel of the Ruins has a powerful ETB effect and is another nice Angel with Shepherd because any land can return Ruins to your hand to then plainscycle to search for a Plains. Another interaction with Pyre is repeatedly sacing the same Angel such as Angel of Despair and reanimating it with Shepherd as long as you have Plains.

Firja as a five drop starts the chain nicely with Pyre when saced to get a six drop Angel such as Valkyrie Harbinger and then Harbringer the next turn gets Shepherd. From there get back Harbringer with Shepherd and then sac it later on to get Sephara, Sky's Blade.


Profane Tutor is a budget low CMC tutor that you cast from suspend. Open the Armory is a low CMC tutor to get Mask of Memory or Animate Dead. Dawn of Hope can do a lot when your Commander has lifelink as well as has evasion.

Court of Grace can be repeatable Angels as well as draw from the monarch. Flying Angels especially ones with vigilance can help to defend for you to keep the monarch, not letting your opponents do combat damage to you. Cleric Class is another one mana card that can help to gain life to trigger various effects and the other levels are good too.

Apprentice Necromancer has interaction with Sun Titan to repeatedly reanimate any 3 CMC or less permanent for one black mana. With Titan in your graveyard reanimate him with Necromancer. Titan ETB reanimates Necromancer and Titan has haste thus he attacks reanimates any other 3 CMC or less permanent. At your end step Titan is saced putting him in your graveyard to reanimate again with Necromancer on your next turn and repeat.

Titan can reanimate Evolving Wilds which is fuel for Emeria Shepherd. Because of Titan For one black mana you could repeatedly trigger Shepherd two times until you run out of Plains or nonland permanents to reanimate/recur. Patriarch's Bidding and Victimize are upgrades for some reanimate spells and Bidding is now a budget card.

Dark Ritual is one mana to help to cast a second spell to trigger Firja or use it to help to cast Firja since she's double black mana cost. Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, Mind Stone are some budget mana rock additions/upgrades. Caves of Koilos, Shineshadow Snarl, Snowfield Sinkhole, Path of Ancestry, Esper Panorama, Ash Barrens are some budget lands to consider adding.

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

This looks fun!

Have you considered Zombie Apocalypse for a mass reanimation/pseudo-wrath combination?

Also, with the reprints in the new Commander decks, the talismans might be a good option to replace the diamonds you have. Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy? The Talisman of Progress might still be a bit pricey, but it's not as necessary with a deck so heavily .

Hey, nice personal version. I respect you're willing to post for critique your personal deck that you're currently playing.

An area to consider improving is ramp. Consider cutting some basic lands especially Swamps for more low CMC mana rocks?

You can get ramp other ways than mana rocks such as Rakdos, Lord of Riots who's underrated with Kaalia. Can also be a backup to more easily cast high CMC creatures if you can't cheat them onto the battlefield with Kaalia. Rakdos could replace Iona, Shield of Emeria because she's banned in multiplayer EDH/Commander.


40 lands with 27 basic lands isn't a good ratio for color fixing when you need all three colors equally. You can't count on having Chromatic Lantern every game for color fixing, but you should consistently be able to count on your lands. Bloodstained Mire is great, nice Expedition, but currently it can't fetch a white source because there's no Swamp/Plains or Mountain/Plains land. Savai Triome , Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry are Plains lands that Mire can search for.

Less lands, more color fixing and more ramp will help gameplay. You want at least 20 sources of each color from lands in the manabase which is completely doable with the already high budget. My advice is cut basic lands for more dual lands. I'll suggest two different tiers of land improvements to consider based on your current budget.

Tier 1 (more expensive lands, better color fixing): more Rainbow lands, more Fetch lands, Shock lands, Bond lands.

Tier 2 (less expensive lands, less color fixing): lesser Rainbow lands, Bond lands, Pathways and Filter lands.

I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Alesha, No Idea

5 months ago

Hey, you're welcome.

Some changes to consider:

Both Goblin Bombardment and Viscera Seer are sac outlets that add to the infinite combo here of Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + Murderous Redcap . Anointed Procession is a good card, but it's an expensive price card that's not doing much here because there's not a strong token sub theme. By sub theme I mean 10 or more cards that care about tokens. You could add more creatures who create tokens when they ETB such as Siege-Gang Commander , but I don't think you need them.

Ankle Shanker is an attack trigger which you will not get when you reanimate him with Alesha. Creatures who have a tap activated ability are less good with Alesha since when you reanimate them with her they ETB tapped not letting them tap to activate.

MaltOMeal on Goblin Politics

Hey lobsternips! Thought I'd jump in and give you my take on what you've got going on. Your noncreature spells look fantastic, not much I would take out, but if you can find a way to fit in some creature recursion in Rise of the Dark Realms or Thrilling Encore with your mass creature destruction in dictate or Killing Wave . Also bounce-type effects like Conjurer's Closet could make use of your etb effects, you'd definitely see some usefulness there. The only problem I see with this deck is its SUPER heavy into red, there are some non-red Goblins out there, but you'd basically be playing a Red deck splashing white and black for support. However, Goblins are funny and mean just like Negan.

As for creatures, I love what you're doing. Lots of synergy, and I love the Goblin tribal theme. Also, love the Kiki-Jiki inclusion, plus with snoop you sorta just win.

Hope I helped some, I probably didn't seeing as I gave more inclusion suggestions rather than cuts. If you decide on doing one thing like "Go Wide" or "Go Tall", adjust your cards to reflect that. Aside from that good luck on your deckbuilding!
