Tana, the Bloodsower occurrence in decks from the last year

Tana, the Bloodsower Discussion

Massacar on The Copy Ninja, Kakashi Hatake

1 month ago

Just a comment on the theme, I really like it, but have you considered also trying the theme with Sakashima of a Thousand Faces as commander? I know it would restrict you to blue, unless you partnered him with another commander, but I feel like the clone mimic of Sakashima fits Kakashi better (solely in my opinion). If you're attached to your colors you could even partner him with Tana, the Bloodsower .

Once again, I like the theme

king-saproling on Lathril

Sure thing LeWaffles! If you're planning to pick up some upgrades, I'd also suggest swapping out some basic lands for these doods:

With so many mana dorks in the deck, I think you could safely function at 33 lands. The nice thing about having lots of mana dorks/rocks is that they ensure Lathril comes out a turn early. I wouldn't go lower than 32 lands though, since the odds of having drawn 3 lands by turn 3 starts to go down significantly from that point. Anyway I should stop hyper-analyzing your deck now haha. My fave deck involves Tana, the Bloodsower and she's similar to Lathril so I get excited about builds like this

i like the flavor of Akroma, Vision of Ixidor & Tana, the Bloodsower
in the command zone with a creature-less deck
naya gives excellent access to anthem, extra combat, ramp, draw, gy recovery, populate, and destruction mechanics

Coward_Token on (Kaldheim) Mystic Reflection uses

Mystic Reflection

This card seems pretty wild, being kind of a preemptive (and non-Disenchantable) Metamorphic Alteration. If you foretell it on one turn, it only takes one measly mana to use it in response to something on another turn. What kind of tricks can you think of using it for?

  • Grave Peril-esque pseudo-removal, turning an incoming commander (including Lord Windgrace) into a random 1/1 token. (Like being elk'd, you could cure this with flickering.)

  • Force someone to copy an unpleasant creature, like Steel Golem. Sadly, no Phage the Untouchables tho

  • Most obviously, use spells/abilities that bring in a lot of creatures in one go so that they all enter as a copy of something strong. One awkward thing here though is that an opponent could ursurp the reflection by getting in something of their own at instant speed. -inclusive commanders I can think of that qualify are Oona, Queen of the Fae and Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant, plus Tana, the Bloodsower & Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel with an appropriate partner. (Note that e.g. The Locust God is AFAIK underwhelming here since its triggers are separate; you'll only get a copy out of the first token.)

  • Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer could use it as an inexpensive (if somewhat risky) way of getting a token copy of something that his other tokens can then copy in turn.

  • Kind of narrow, but you could get extra value by having creatures with on-cast triggers like Mockery of Nature come in as a copy of something with an ETB trigger, getting you both triggers at the end of the day. (You could also do something like having a creature cast from your hand come into as a copy of a Dread Cacodemon to qualify for its ETB, but you could do the same with any creature card Clone variant.)

Snooktf2 on for darling in the franXX fans

I think purely thematically Jeska, Thrice Reborn HAS to be 002. You can def make a case for Tana, the Bloodsower, but I think Jeska is just a stronger choice.

As for 016...

Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Esior, Wardwing Familiar / Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker because of the whole Jian mythical bird story. Some sort of flying tribal (the Franxx can fly... I think... at least 002's can) or Vehicle Tribal.

Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Kraum, Ludevic's Opus could be the two of them becoming "one" towards the end of the show. Focus on Voltron-ing Kraum.

Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept just because one's a dude, one's a girl, and each share their respective color palettes that the show has.

If you did go with Tana, the Bloodsower you could use Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist to go more of a dinosaur tribal route for those Naya colors and pack it with Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Zacama, Primal Calamity for flavor fun.

abby315 on Picking a Partner for Tevesh …

Of the four, I think Tana, the Bloodsower has the most obvious synergy and Dargo, the Shipwrecker is the most powerful combo.

If you really want to play with Tevesh Szat as the spotlight, I would choose Tana and build a Prossh-style Jund sac deck; there are plenty of combos in those colors, but the focus would be on Tevesh Szat value engine.

If you build the Dargo deck, Dargo is really the important commander and Tevesh is just there to give access to black tutors and chump fodder if you can't find a faster engine. I've also seen that Dargo + a GB or GU partner is likely better if you want to go all-in on Dargo, since you can then also use him to Pod or Eldritch Evo into a wincon. It's definitely the more powerful deck, though. GLHF!

Arcaneful on Picking a Partner for Tevesh …

I'll keep this short and to the point. I just got a Tevesh Szat and am looking to make a partner deck with him but I am stuck between 5 options. I don't want anything overly oppresive, but I want something that is a solid partner pair I can build off of on a fair budget.

My meta is casual/competitive usually in the 75% range. Example decks include: Glissa, the Traitor KCI, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim Consultation, Ramos, Dragon Engine charms/voltron, and Mizzix of the Izmagnus combo/storm.

Currently my ideas:

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix: A proliferate/aristocrats deck. Maybe a back up win con in Thassa's Oracle.

Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa: Only here for the colors, but would win through Blood Artist loops and have a reanimator subtheme. Maybe some sort of Ashnod's Altar infinite mana loop for a Walking Ballista win.

Tana, the Bloodsower: Another aristocrats deck but this time with an overrun to win theme (End-Raze Forerunners and co for budget options)

Dargo, the Shipwrecker: I've seen some combo lines for him and I'd probably just follow those and go all in on comboing off.

Thanks for any responses.

EDIT: Fair budget means around $5-10 per card in my opinion.

pfajardo on Tana/Jeska Triplets

3 months ago

a possible game winning combo i just thought was using Food Chain + Eternal Scourge to add infinite and mana, then cast Tana, the Bloodsower N times, and then try to cast Jeska, Thrice Reborn with N Loyalty.

-X on her 2nd ability for trillions of damage to up to 3 any targets
