DemonDragonJ on Kill them With Kindness

1 month ago

I have replaced Ring of Three Wishes with Wargate, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.57 to 3.53, which is very nice, because the ring simply is too expensive to use outside of certain decks. I had contemplated replacing the ring with Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer, but this deck does not quite have a sufficiently strong focus on creatures to make Rocco an optimal choice.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List] Part 1

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.

New Capenna

Lagrella, the Magpie serves as Fiend Hunter in the command zone, letting you do sacrifice combos with Karmic Guide. She'll probably end up somewhere close to Saffi Eriksdotter.

Cormela, Glamour Thief combos with reanimator spells like Footsteps of the Goryo as long as you have cost reduction cards like Goblin Electromancer or a sac outlet that generates mana. I think she's pretty strong. Anhelo, the Painter is a grixis version of Kalamax, the Stormsire. Probably the best of the new Grixis commanders. Evelyn, the Covetous is weaker than it looks. I don't think there is an infinite blink/flicker/cloning combo piece that's also a vampire. Probably not better than Vela the Night-Clad, even with the extra color. Lord Xander, the Collector has a big impact on casual tables, but is nowhere near as relevant in competitive play. Would put him somewhere close to Evelyn.

Falco Spara, Pactweaver is an okay value engine, but you have to jump through extra hoops to go infinite with it compared to Elsha of the Infinite, so it will be a few tiers lower than Elsha. Rigo, Streetwise Mentor has to compete with Edric, Spymaster of Trest, they want to do more or less the same thing. I'm not sure if Rigo is better or worse.

Ognis, the Dragon's Lash does the same as Grand Warlord Radha. You get an extra color, but have the restriction regarding haste in exchange. Henzie "Toolbox" Torre is just a bad Grim Haruspex that can serve as pseudo-haste-enabler. Not weak, but also not very strong. Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is a Wargate for creatures in the command zone. Might be the strongest Naya legend to date, although Marath, Will of the Wild is no joke either. Jolene, the Plunder Queen enables untap combos with Black Market Tycoon, but it just ends up being a much worse version of the Freed from the Real combos that other commanders can do.

None of the others are worth mentioning imo.

Commander Legends 2

Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward is similar to Lagrella, all about Fiend Hunter-type flicker/sacrifice combos. Candlekeep Sage is probably the best background for it. Alaundo the Seer is a simic version of Jhoira of the Ghitu, except that it's slower, but also draws cards. Bhaal, Lord of Murder is more or less an Odric's Outrider in the command zone, but that it only counts for nontoken creatures means you can't combo with Scurry Oak, so it's probably not that great. I think Duke Ulder Ravengard combos with Port Razer?

Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy sort of gives all your instants & sorceries flashback, which is usually very powerful. Not sure how good it ends up being in practice however. Ganax, Astral Hunter is basically just Galazeth Prismari. Kagha, Shadow Archdruid is yet another Golgari recursion commander, which are usually at least decent. Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter goes infinite with Clock of Omens and Liquimetal Coating.

Baba Lysaga, Night Witch, Bane, Lord of Darkness, Dynaheir, Invoker Adept, Gorion, Wise Mentor and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest have a lot of combo potential, but I'm not sure how to break them yet.

Stardragon on Land Search?

2 months ago

So with Baldur's Gate coming out with 9 new gates I thought of making a gate deck with Maze's End as a win con. i need more non basic land search (preferably to the battlefield but to the hand if need) and some extra play additional land cards, i have a small amount added ATM I have

Explore, Hour of Promise, Pir's Whim, Reap and Sow, Sylvan Scrying, Tempt with Discovery, Wargate, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Ulvenwald Hydra, Wayward Swordtooth, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Expedition Map, Crop Rotation and Exploration. Am I missing any? Should I add some light Landfall as well?

ted1 this is my Reaper King deck, it might have some ideas you could use in your build. Over something like Diabolic Tutor I prefer stuff like Bring to Light and Wargate that put what I need into play, or that will find either Maskwood Nexus or The World Tree, and the deck runs a fair bit of ramp to try to rush to the 11 mana I need to cheat in a game ending army. This deck is built around making very big plays, so it likes The World Tree and Rite of Replication a great deal, because that can turn into 25 Reaper King triggers if you target Reaper King, which is frankly absurd. I am thinking of throwing in some higher budget tutors, but there is a big difference I'd argue between Diabolic Tutor and Demonic Tutor, double the mana is pretty harsh when you could just run Bright to Light, but at least Demonic Tutor can find anything at 1B, even just finding The World Tree for fixing.

king-saproling on Go home Tribal, you're drunk.

Why not include the third changeling champion, Changeling Hero? It allows for infinite damage alongside Changeling Berserker, Changeling Titan, and Purphoros.

You might like these too: Pir's Whim, Reap and Sow, Tempt with Discovery, Ulvenwald Hydra, Tolaria West, Wargate, Nylea's Intervention, Knight of the Reliquary, Elvish Reclaimer, Scapeshift, Reshape the Earth

Mortlocke on The Queen's Egg

jasinatael, thanks for mentioning Bring to Light , definitely a card I was not aware of from original zendikar? My opinion of the card is that it is basically a strictly worse Wargate . For 5 (and that mana potentially being in WUBRG), this spell's range of targets to tutor and cast seem rather limited in scope. If I was running a simic deck this card would definitely be worth considering, but given that i'm in 5 color there are just way too many better options to choose from. However, given that I am building a simic deck i'll keep Bring to Light under consideration. Thanks for sharing!

multimedia on Your Average Sliver Deck (Sliver Overlord EDH)

1 year ago

Hey, nice budget version, but why Maze's End ?

Without having other cards that can get Gates and put them onto the battlefield it's not realistic that you will be able to assemble 10 Gates + Maze. I don't recommend that you add more cards that have Gate synergy because I don't think you need the Gates + Maze strategy since it's hurting the rest of the manabase and making it more difficult to cast Slivers. However, you could expand on Gates:

On a budget playing a Guildgate or Thriving land over a Tri land is not recommended. If you're curious to see another budget five color manabase example without Gates then I'll post one in another comment.


The World Tree + Maskwood Nexus can make all Slivers in your library Gods and if you can activate Tree then you can cheat them all onto the battlefield. Tree can also when you have six lands be a Chromatic Lantern effect. Nexus is also a repeatable source of Changeling which are Sliver tokens. Gemhide or Manaweft help to activate Tree.

Amoeboid Changeling is a Silver and it has excellent interaction with Overlord's ability to gain control of a Sliver because you don't lose control at end of turn. With Aoeboid you can change an opponent's creature into a Sliver and then gain permanent control of it with Overlord. Mirror Entity is a Silver and it's ability can make all Slivers you control huge. Pair Entity with Gemhide + Sentinel to attack and then tap all Slivers to make your Slivers huge in combat.

Good luck with your deck.
