Xenaphix02 on Need some cuts from the …

1 month ago

Awakening Zone isn't really doing anything here. I think you can safely cut Grave Titan, Dragonlair Spider, Solemn Simulacrum, Mazirek, and probably Mayhem Devil as well. You are only going to be sacrificing one thing at a time, so running sac synergies is pretty meh. also, Treacherous Blessing will always lose you the game if you resolve a Primal Surge. The triggers caused by Primal Surge only resolve after the spell resolves, so it will always force you to draw 3 after you've already emptied your library.

For additions, I think Urabrask the Hidden will help you stay ahead on your aggro since he'll force your opponents creatures to come in tapped, that way you don't give them free block with Vaevictis. You might also want Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots since your whole strategy relies on your commander.

GoldenDiggle on Warweaver's Chant

How's it going man? I like Thanatis and believe the spider is an interesting way to promote table interaction, in more ways than one.

Timeless Witness is a self recurring Eternal Witness, which is useful as recursion, and may be psudeo 'unblockable' as killing it means it gets both beefier and extra value.

Kamahl, Heart of Krosa, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and Grand Warlord Radha all fit in nicely here. Kamahl literally beats face with your team, notwithstanding his land pump ability. Ruric Thar is good hate on noncreatures, directly making the casting player an easier target (great with lifelink). Radha is just a creature Druids' Repository. Sure, she may be 1 cmc more, but she pays for herself the turn she is played by attacking.

Archetype of Endurance can help you protect your field, as both an anthem and form of protection, it has great usage. The other two Archetypes, Archetype of Aggression and Archetype of Finality are slightly redundant, as you have other options, but could be useful. Urabrask the Hidden is an honorable mention as well, but messes with Thanatis a bit.

Ring of Thune seems underwhelming, aside from giving cheap vigilance, I'd suggest Avarice Amulet, as it shifts focus off of your better creatures and provides a value engine for your opponents to squabble over. There's always Glaive of the Guildpact if you're set on equipment, but I prefer a creature with a pushing effect such as God-Eternal Rhonas or Sigardian Zealot

My main point is, in an aggressive deck, having creature value engines is best as they can attack, though I'm sure you already know that. Either way, deck looks sweet, keep at it my man!

JabberJ3T on Magda, Brazen Outlaw combo cEDH

This is a cool deck idea! I like the idea of getting infinite treasures and being able to get out every artifact you have! I feel like the problem with this deck is that once you have all your artifacts out it doesn't seem like you have a way to win from there, sure you can make a lot of mana but you just seem to be waiting for a Vandalblast to come along and ruin your day. For a way to win I suggest Maskwood Nexus and Utvara Hellkite. with these two (which you obviously combo'ed off and used Magda's ability to get them onto the battlefield) you can search for all of your creatures, via Maskwood Nexus and then next time you attack Utvara Hellkite will trigger getting you a gazillion 6/6 dragons. It is a little slow because you have to attack with all your dudes first, (probably killing them) then you get the dragon's so yeah its slow. BUT if you want to win as fast as possible you could throw in a Combat Celebrant for an extra attack step and you could also have a Urabrask the Hidden to attack ASAP. If that doesn't do it for you then I don't know what will, besides Avatar of Slaughter.

DreadKhan on House of Pain (Partner CMDR's / Obosh Companion)

Have you thought about adding Citadel of Pain as a vorthos card? Urabrask the Hidden may go down in price with the Secret Lair thing, I suspect it was purchased in great numbers and will lowkey tank the price of the OG Praetors. Citadel helps mess with enemy interaction, I don't know if that's an issue in your meta, while Urabrask speeds up your creatures and slows down everyone else's creatures.

Very cool deck!

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

6 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

I always find that monored EDH decks tend to have an issue getting enough cards in hand. I could see that being an issue here, especially with the "free" play abilities you have in! Some things that could help are cards like Fire Prophecy , Stolen Strategy , Faithless Looting , Jeska's Will , Cavalier of Flame , Mask of Memory , Neheb, Dreadhoard Champion, and Valakut Exploration .
Some non-creature cards that might have good synergy for the deck are Commander's Plate , Skullclamp , Whispersilk Cloak , Worldslayer , Embercleave , Mirage Mirror , Aggravated Assault , Gratuitous Violence , Chaosphere , and Sorrow's Path .
Some other creatures that could help are Breaker of Armies , Void Winnower , Marton Stromgald , Urabrask the Hidden , Legion Loyalist , Hellkite Charger , Flamerush Rider , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Soulbright Flamekin , and Siege Dragon . Also, any eldrazi if you wanna be that mean, especially the original set with annihilator.
The sacrifice clause on Purphoros can also have some fun opportunity, especially with cards like Blood Aspirant , Mycosynth Wellspring , and Ancient Stone Idol .
Oh! And if you do end up with that many mountains, Jaws of Stone , Landslide , Spawn of Thraxes , and Spire Barrage , could all be ridiculously powerful late-game!
Happy building!!!

TheVectornaut on Insane ramp idea - please help

8 months ago

Yeah, if you are running Fierce Empath , you do want most of your bombs to be at or above that 6 CMC threshold. For instance, that's why I run Greenwarden of Murasa over the usually far superior Eternal Witness and Cyclops of Eternal Fury over say Urabrask the Hidden or Fires of Yavimaya . Running both the Empath and Time of Need will require careful balancing so you don't end up in situations where you need to find one thing and the tutor you draw isn't the one that can search for it. Hypothetically, you can get around that by just running creatures that satisfy both conditions. It is true though that such creatures will often be quite pricey like the Eldrazi titans and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger . If you do go the Eldrazi route, Artisan of Kozilek and It That Betrays would be some other guys to keep an eye out for, with one being obviously more budget than the other. As for the appropriate numbers of land untappers and land enchantments, you'll just have to goldfish and hopefully also get some real games in to test what ratio works for you. If there is a lot of enchantment destruction being played early, for example, I think running 12 Overgrowth effects would be more worthwhile. Or if creature removal is more of an issue, working in Hope Tender or Sculptor of Winter could be an option.
