Vela the Night-Clad Discussion

libraryjoy on Nose to the Grindstone, Boi! Budget Mill EDH

3 days ago

Nemesis of Reason got dropped because of its price and how it targets a single person. But it could definitely go in the upgrades board if you wanted it. It just looked like the kind of thing that would put a big fat target on your head. I kept Soaring Thought-Thief because it triggers the mill by itself. If IT attacks, then the mill to everyone. But it could definitely be dropped for any other card. I would say Sphinx's Tutelage is definitely a highly efficient card. Mind Grind could be insane in Commander, and I would choose that over Traumatize. My other top picks would be Vela the Night-Clad , Sphinx Mindbreaker , Startled Awake  Flip, and Ashiok, Sculptor of Fears .

Could Vela the Night-Clad have "Tier 3: High Power" potential? She wins the game pretty easily with the Naru Meha, Master Wizard + Cackling Counterpart combo.

That Vela costs 6 definitely keeps her out of "Tier 2: Fringe Competetive", but that she is a win-con in the command zone for multiple combo types seems decent.

For the Stompy version I would start by cutting Ruination Guide, Pitiless Plunderer, Sifter of Skulls, Blight Herder, Brood Butcher, Emrakrul’s Hatcher, Catacomb Sifter, Drowner of Hope, Awakening Zone, Etchings of the Chosen, Eyeless Watcher.

If you put in Rings of Brighthearth it combos with Basalt Monolith to make infinite mna. Both Monolith and Rings are 3 CmC and artifacts so they are tutorable with the same tutors you have in here for Fist of Suns. With infinite colourless mana Dimensional Infiltrator will be able to exile your opponents libraries, Essence Depleter can drain out the table, and Prophet of Distortion will let you draw your library. Rings doesn't have a lot of synergy with other cards in your list BUT if Golos was your commander it has a seriously powerful ability that would be awesome to copy.

Eternal Scourge + Food Chain is another combo you can consider which will make infinite COLOURED mana for creature spells and have infinite EtB and LtB triggers so this will end a game with Flayer Drone or Vela the Night-Clad in play. If you wanted to abuse the mana you would need Cloudstone Curio or a non-eldrazi bouncing creature as all the eldrazi bouncers are processors and it is unlikely your opponents will have an infinite pile of exiled cards.

I suggest adding in Pathrazer of Ulamog , Barrage Tyrant , World Breaker , Dread Defiler , Endless One , Not of This World , Rapacious One , Reality Smasher , Thought-Knot Seer , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Ulamog's Crusher , & Vile Redeemer as suitable eldrazi stompy options. Barrage Tyrant and Dread Defiler get a special mention because Fling is an amazing effect that can give you the reach you need to close out a game or off a player hiding behind a pillowfort.

Here is a list of support cards off the top of my head: Sarkhan's Unsealing , Temur Ascendancy , Commander's Plate , Mana Maze , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Everflowing Chalice , Thran Dynamo , Rishkar's Expertise , Return of the Wildspeaker , Garruk's Uprising , Hunting Grounds , Sneak Attack , Animar, Soul of Elements , Mana Geyser , Mirari's Wake , Ugin, the Ineffable , Show and Tell , Terror of the Peaks , Warstorm Surge , Alena, Kessig Trapper , Ilysian Caryatid , Momentous Fall , Greater Good , Sacellum Godspeaker , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , The Great Henge , Eldritch Evolution , Energy Tap .

Hey casual_competitive! Thanks for the suggestion! Mycosynth Golem sounds like it would be great in this build and may even overtake Broodstar's spot for greater synergy with Vela the Night-Clad. I will have to see if I can track down a copy. Thanks again!

You already have sultai, grixis, and esper built. I'd say try a new color scheme like temur for eldrazi. Animar, Soul of Elements is my boi and goes well with colorless creatures. I'd also suggest Omnath, Locus of the Roil since you can benefit from land drops, and he's also from Zendikar

King_marchesa had a good idea with Vela the Night-Clad too. Unblockable eldrazi sounds awesome! Deepfathom Skulker, Coastal Piracy, Reconnaissance Mission and Bident of Thassa could be good in there

Have fun!

Personally is would build eldrazi, there was this really cool edhrec article that used Vela the Night-Clad as it's commander to give all the eldrazi intimidate so that the eldrazi could only be blocked by artifact creatures or eldrazi. Here's the article (

Sorry it's the whole address whenever I enter the link description in the brackets it doesn't show up.
