DemonDragonJ on Which Card(s) Should Replace the …

2 months ago

I used to have copies of The Immortal Sun in most of my EDH decks, but I have been replacing those copies with cards that better suit the themes of those decks, so I wish to ask for advice for specific decks.

First, I am wondering about my Sen Triplets EDH deck; that deck is a very controlling deck, so one card that I am considering is Myrel, Shield of Argive, since she is a more powerful version of Grand Abolisher, although I certainly would be willing to hear other suggestions, as well. I was also considering replacing the sun with Esper Sentinel, but I am not certain if I actually need that card in that deck, with all the other sources of card advantage that that deck has.

Second, I am seeking a replacement for the sun in my Teneb, the Harvester EDH deck, but this shall be a more challenging replacement, as there are numerous cards that would work well with that deck. My first choice was Karador, Ghost Chieftain, as this is the only deck in which he would fit, and, with his inherent cost-reducing ability, he would usually cost less then 8 mana to summon, but, as good as he is, he is merely a 3/4 that allows me to cast a creature spell from my graveyard once per turn. I then considered Sepulchral Primordial, but I do not wish to raise the mana curve of this deck, and that creature is only a 5/4 for seven mana. I also am considering either Sun Titan or Angel of Indemnity, as they clearly work with the theme of this deck, but the restrictions on their abilities may limit their utility in this deck, although the encore ability of the angel is nice, as I can sacrifice the tokens that it generates before they sacrifice themselves. Then, I am considering Grave Titan, since it can easily send creatures to my opponents' graveyards, for me to steal, as well as generating tokens for me to sacrifice, so I have numerous options for that deck.

What does everyone else say about this? What cards should I use to replace The Immortal Sun in my decks?

DemonDragonJ on Should I Replace Visara the …

3 months ago

I have a copy of Visara the Dreadful in these two EDH decks, because she can destroy creatures for the generals of those decks to steal, but I wonder if she is the best possible way to do that, since I cannot both attack with her and then user her ability; each of those decks also does contain a copy of Seedborn Muse, but there is no guarantee that I shall draw both of those creatures in the same game, so Visara is rather a risky choice.

For my Teneb, the Harvester deck, I am considering Archfiend of Depravity, Archpriest of Shadows, or Indulgent Tormentor, and, for The Mimeoplasm deck, I am considering either Acidic Slime or Nemesis of Reason, because all of those creatures synergize with the themes of those decks.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I keep Visara the Dreadful in those decks, or replace her with other creatures, and, if I do, with what creatures should I replace her?

DemonDragonJ on Vulturous Zombie or Ghave, Guru …

6 months ago

I am contemplating putting Ghave, Guru of Spores into my Teneb, the Harvester EDH deck, since that deck has a strong focus on sacrificing creatures, and I believe that I can remove Vulturous Zombie to make room for Ghave, since the zombie is nice, but I feel that Ghave is a better match for the deck's theme.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Vulturous Zombie with Ghave, Guru of Spores?

DemonDragonJ on Which Sacrifice Outlet(s) Should I …

6 months ago

I have copies of Gift of the Deity and Shield of the Oversoul in my Teneb, the Harvester EDH deck, and they are excellent cards, but I am planning to replace them with cards that have stronger synergy with the theme of the deck (i.e., reanimating creatures for either combat or sacrificing), and one of those cards definitely shall be Feast of the Victorious Dead, but I am not certain what the other card should be.

I am contemplating several permanents that are sacrifice outlets, such as Martyr's Cause, Commissar Severina Raine, Denethor, Ruling Steward, and Bartolome del Presidio, although I currently am most favoring Denethor, since he provides both a sacrifice outlet and a benefit for creatures dying, which ideally should happen very frequently when I play this deck; or should I choose something completely different, such as Vito, Fanatic of Aclazotz, for his unusual effect?

What does everyone else say about this subject? Which card should I put in my Teneb deck?

DemonDragonJ on Treasury Thrull or Carmen, Cruel …

7 months ago

I have a copy of Treasury Thrull in both my Tariel, Reckoner of Souls and Teneb, the Harvester EDH decks, as sacrificing and reanimating creatures is one of the central themes in each of those decks, but I am considering replacing that card with Carmen, cruel skymarcher, since she has a lower mana cost and also is overall more versatile; it is true that the cards that she can return are limited by her power, but I am confident that I shall be able to make her sufficiently power to return any cards in my deck, and she also returns them directly to the battlefield, rather than my hand, which is very nice.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Treasury Thrull with Carmen, cruel skymarcher?

MTGBurgeoning on Scion of the Ur-Dragon: Every. Dragon. Ever.

1 year ago

Hello! Thank you for the comment. There was a time, early in this deck's inception, where Teneb, the Harvester and a couple of Dragons with similarly-costed activated abilities were in the build. Over time, it became apparent that Teneb was never a target for Scion of the Ur-Dragon's activated ability. The deck continues to evolve, as more and more powerful Dragons are created constantly. The Dragon-pecking order is reassessed after each new set that releases, and it has become more strict and more difficult to earn a spot. We want Dragons that can deliver hay-makers to our opponents. Unfortunately, Teneb does not do this. Swinging for six points of damage and recurring a Dragon for a total of five mana (two for activating Scion and three for activating Teneb) is just not enough these days (frown).

Why not Teneb, the Harvester? Seems really good since you put the tutored card from Scion in your grave.

legendofa on Card creation challenge

1 year ago

My interpretation of this challenge is my in-depth introduction to the game trying to decide between two precons, Unraveling Mind or Rituals of Rebirth, from Planar Chaos.

I had explored a Portal to other worlds, and knew a little about a great Tempest and some other bits and pieces, but I consider that decision between the precons to be the moment my spark ignited. Pulling some inspiration from that event and the deck themes, here's this bit of weirdness that might fit into the Planar Chaos set.



: Each player discards a card. Activate this ability as a sorcery.

: Return target creature from your graveyard to the battlefield. Activate this ability only as a sorcery.

I eventually went with Unraveling Mind, the Madness one. I still don't own a Teneb, the Harvester.

This one sat for a while, and weekends tend to be slower, so the challenge is wild card.
