Tinybones, Trinket Thief Discussion

Sultai_Sir on How's Kaldheim Looking to You? …

2 days ago

In my humble opinion, Kaldheim is looking like an amazing set. We haven't gotten any broken things, but they all look fun. Let's go over some of the future commanders of our hearts! I'm skipping over commanders that use fortell, as we don't have many cards for them. Oh, and the cards that don't interest me. My post, my rules!

  • Halvar, God of Battle  Flip: While pretty good in Voltron decks, he makes for the first artifact commander we've ever had, and I know my Inner Johnny is tickled at that fact. The Equipment side is also super cool, with being able to pay 4 mana to resuscitate one of your creatures. With some Phyrexian Altar + Ashnod's Altar janks, we can make a fun mono-white combo deck! Oh, and Batterskull says hi.
  • Lathril, Blade of the Elves: I'm really psyched for this general. She looks like a way to make Golgari Elfball more viable, has a crazy, but not broken, activated ability, and is one of the only generals to make a usually too-competitive strategy fit for more casual tables. She has synergy up the wazoo with cards like Immaculate Magistrate and Timberwatch Elf. Oh, and one card that should be in every one of her decks, but is in zero so far, is Elder of Laurels. This card = broken in this deck, often turning your Lathril, Blade of the Elves into a four-digit power commander. Run it!
  • Sarulf, Realm Eater: Golgari Control is a thing, I guess? Stack your deck like card:Skullbrair, the Walking Grave does, but instead of going for the voltron combos, instead, you wipe your opponent's board every turn. Evolutionary Escalation is a must. Who cares about an 8/8 on your opponent's side when it's dead?
  • Vega, the Watcher: I'll say it: This is probably the most powerful uncommon commander ever printed. This triggers off of so many things: Elsha of the Infinite, Flahsback, Cascade, Retrace, Future Sight, Suspend, Adventure, Foretell, Impulse Draw, etc. Need I say more?
  • Jorn, God of Winter  Flip: ... Sigh. I know this is a fun card, but why is it sultai? Oh wait, it's generic value. EVen from a sultai-loving man as myself, this seems like overkill. Oh, you want me to talk about the commander? Stuff your deck full of snow lands. Attack. Repeat. Etc. So uninspiring.

As others have said, this is a really nice gesture, Azdranax!

2020 has been a low year for me (and I'm sure many others) in Magic. I started playing back in '98, then kinda fell off as I got older. I picked it up really again in college, when I learned about EDH. I had been playing weekly until this year put a stop to that (for obvious reasons).

I was really hoping the "Year of Commander" would give me enough brewing ideas to see me through until our local LGS opened up again. Unfortunately nothing really peaked my interest all year, save two exceptions: Tinybones, Trinket Thief and Belbe, Corrupted Observer.

I've tried building discard EDH in the past, and the commander was always the weakest part. I tried The Haunt of Hightower, but it was just too vulnerable and expensive. Enter Tinybones, Trinket Thief, and I was like "Yeah, that's what I am talking about!" Then, the supply issue and apparent high demand for the card pushed it to a point where I was more like, "It's good, but not $60+ good!" I'm glad to see the price has come down, still seems a bit pricey for what I consider a pretty janky concept for EDH.

Belbe, Corrupted Observer peaked my interest once she was spoiled. Her ability seems so breakable, but I was never able to come up with any list that really satisfied me. It's kind of a weird ability for Golgari (it feels really red IMO), and I wouldn't mind seeing how you would approach that!

Well this is getting a bit long, and I'm breaking my own rule of keeping it short and sweet. I look forward to seeing what you build!

PartyJ, I love your primer and use your deck as a template for my own. It’s a pity, that Chains of Mephistopheles, The Abyss, Nether Void and Gaea's Cradle are such expensive pieces of cardboard.

What are your thoughts on Tinybones, Trinket Thief?

Some removal on theme would be Bone Splinters. Any room for Tenacious Dead?

A secondary theme for the deck could also revolve around Tinybones, Trinket Thief and a few discard spells. +1 though. Cheers!

Although it’s very tough to narrow it down, my favorite art includes Phyrexian Obliterator, Death's Shadow, Damnation, Tinybones, Trinket Thief, and the newest full art version of Kaalia of the Vast.

Hey everyone, I’ll chime in as well. I first became interested in commander when I picked up the Kaalia of the Vast precon a few years ago. Ever since then I’ve been working on making my Kaalia deck as effective as possible. Recently I dove into cEDH and I changed my deck from a traditional aggro build to a hybrid aggro-stax build and I’m very happy with it. Kaalia can be slower than other super fast competitive decks, but with the stax elements I can slow down other players enough to beat them down. An interesting combo is Rule of Law or Eidolon of Rhetoric with Possibility Storm. If your opponents don’t stop you from pulling off the combo, they can no longer play any spells, and you can proceed to beat their faces in.

Here’s the deck if anyone is interested: KAALIA'S CATACLYSM (Mardu Aggro Stax)

Besides Kaalia, recently I discovered Tinybones, Trinket Thief (who I call the Tiny Punisher because he can kill every other player single-handedly and reminds me of a tiny Frank Castle lol) and I had to design a deck around it. I focus on discard and stax effects with the goal of dealing damage with Tinybones or assembling a lethal combo. If Leyline of the Void is in play, and you spend at least 1 on Helm of Obedience’s triggered ability, you exile a player’s entire library instantly! My playgroup has seen me pull this off and it strikes fear into their hearts lol. Another insta-kill combo is Bolas's Citadel plus Aetherflux Reservoir and Sensei's Divining Top. You use the Top to draw a card and place it on the top of your deck, then cast the Top from the top of your deck with the Citadel for 1 life, then use the Top again to draw a card and place it on the top of your deck, etc. Eventually you draw your entire deck and the Resevoir will allow you to gain more life than you lose with the Citadel. Then you can easily kill each opponent with the Resevoir.
