Tamiyo, Collector of Tales Discussion

Enral on Simic Turbo Fog

Where's Tamiyo, Collector of Tales ? Protection against player target as well as getting your fogs back when you run out of it.

  • Keep in mind according to oathbreaker rules, Fae of Wishes adventure does not function unless you ask your playgroup if it is okay.
  • Give Oko's ability to steal, giving creatures temporary power reduction might be in your best interest.
  • Look into cards like Befuddle and Dwindle .
  • Not sure if the mill effects are the best fit for Oko. Tamiyo, Collector of Tales synergizes with your signature spell better as well.

I'd worry less about going infinite with aeons- its nice, but most of the time getting an extra turn or two with walkers on the battlefield should win. Deprive looks good.

Green offers a lot here. A Life from the Loam package would allow you to lean hard into a crucible gameplan and create a lot of value reccuring lands, but I can't say that would be better, but it is worth thinking about- a single Breeding Pool and your LGS will start having to guess which version of the list you brought this week. Tamiyo, Collector of Tales is also an interesting option to loop with while protecting against strategies that hate out control.

Alternately, Fall of the Thran allows you to value out with planeswalkers in the same cost slot as walk- it is worth considering if another graveyard meta rears its head.

I really like the addition of Tamiyo, Collector of Tales and have been wrestling with where to slide it in since playing the deck as I believe it needs a way to bounce back from single target removal. The fact it digs for combo pieces is just a bonus. How do you feel about dropping 3 Once Upon a Time s for 2 tamiyos and a land? With the addition of even more walkers the likely it will whiff on meaningful cards late game.

Obviously this is your deck, so go the route that you wish, but in my opinion I feel that focusing on the easier to protect combo is going to be more reliable than possibly hitting it on turn 4 in a few games. One kill spell or board wipe will completely set you back. Have you considered Tamiyo, Collector of Tales to help dig for / recur your combo pieces?

You said you want to make room for Teferi, Temporal Archmage ? I'd say cut Tamiyo, Collector of Tales . She doesn't appear to have much value in your deck as it currently stands. In order for you to achieve maximum value from her, you'd need to both have her out and be able to reliably manipulate the top of your deck each turn. Then, even if you can do this, because this is EDH you will only ever at most get a single card in your hand, and put three into your graveyard. Considering your deck is not built for graveyard synergy, I'd say she's easily the weakest link here. As for her static ability, not many cards out there force opponents to sacrifice permanents they own. They do exist, but by far it is one of the less relevant options of removal. Even those who do exist, it usually then befalls upon the opponent's choice, which means they will likely sacrifice their weakest permanents first. For example, obviously a player will keep their strongest two creatures when Archfiend of Depravity goes off, or they will sacrifice a token creature if able to Mogis, God of Slaughter . Likewise, Crackling Doom gives them the option to choose if they have two or more creatures that meet the condition, and even if they don't this only removes a single threat from their board.

So I think I can pretty confidently say you can forgo Tamiyo and run just fine :)
