Just won a game with my Lathliss, Dragon Queen deck on Turn 6 against Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Runo Stromkirk  Flip and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

I had opened with a Spinerock Knoll exiling Dragon Tempest and a Mox Tantalite. Next turn I played a Vesuva, exiling an Utvara Hellkite. On my 3rd turn I topdecked an Ancient Tomb and was fortunate enough to have opened with a Purphoros, God of the Forge so I immediately dropped him into play.

Then we all got wheeled via Wheel of Fortune. Great. Actually, yes quite splendid because I didn't have much else going on.

It sort of became a slugfest of counterspells and the Rakdos player slinging out damage to try and neutralize some of the Planeswalkers Atraxa was dropping. I was just casting Hammer of Purphoros and had literally nothing else going on.

Rakdos' T6, he drops a freaking Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. WOOOOOW...

Gets to my T6 and Atraxa slams down Teferi, Master of Time's -3 to exile my poor Lathliss, Dragon Queen that I had played T5. T_T but but but whyyyy she didn't do anything T_T T_T T_T

I tell her that while she can suspend my poor Lathy, this leaves Kozzy online and a big 6/6 Rakdos, Lord of Riots. I tell her that if she could be so kind as to suspend Rakdos, I can handle Kozzy since that's clearly the biggest threat. I explain to her that while Purphoros, God of the Forge can't deal damage to Kozzy, I can churn out enough 5/5 tokens and pump them with Lathliss, Dragon Queen to kill the Rakdos player - thus removing Kozzy via player removal. All I need is for Rakdos, Lord of Riots offline so my Dragons can get through.

And to my surprise, she bought that lie and agrees. Rakdos fizzles out.

  • hehehehe

So, I drop a Scourge of Valkas that I was fortunate enough to wheel into thanks to that Wheel of Fortune from earlier.

Purphoros, God of the Forge sees a Scourge of Valkas and a 5/5 token via Lathliss, Dragon Queen land. Oopsies. 4 damage to everyone's face. But wait, it gets so much worse.

Scourge of Valkas sees itself ETB for 3 Dragons, thus 3 damage. But he ALSO sees a 5/5 token ETB for 3 Dragons, thus 3 MOAR damage.

I direct all 6 of this to the Rakdos, Lord of Riots player who was firmly sitting at around 34 life. Hmm... not quite enough to live up to my end of the deal. EXCEPT...

A player was dealt 7 or more damage this turn. Que my Vesuva that ETB copying Spinerock Knoll. I tap that mfer and drop Utvara Hellkite.

Purphoros sees Utty and a 5/5 token ETB. 4 more global damage to face.

This time, Scourge of Valkas sees an Utty for 5 and a token for 5. 10 damage as I please. All directly toward Rakdos, Lord of Riots who has now sustained 4 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 5 = 24 damage of their 34 life total. Ouchies.

Move to combat, since I have Hammer of Purphoros online. Tap everybody sideways.

Lathliss, Scourge, Utvara and 2x 5/5s each create a 6/6 for FIVE 6/6s.

Purphoros dishes out 10 global damage and Scourge sees FIVE ETB triggers of 10 damage each.

And we haven't even moved to combat damage, much less blockers ;)

Oopsie doodles, looks like my Lathliss, Dragon Queen deck won on Turn 6. Lololol gg frens


And this is precisely why this deck is my number 1 favorite deck of all time. Does literally every stupid thing I love about Magic: The Gathering in a horrifically efficient manner.

Drops: possibly 9-11 total

Hellkite Tyrant: it is fun, though it may be a bit too slow

Wheel of Fortune, Windfall, Faithless Looting: is there a reason to run these over other draw spells like Brainstorm?

Prismari Command: It isn't that good

Dark Confidant: maybe not the best? you could hit something big and it would hurt, there are better cards to run in EDH, Confidant is good in modern where the CMC is low

Trinket Mage: I can see the pros and cons, but it is a possible drop as it gets useful cards but you have enough search for cards that are more relevant to the deck's goals

Norn's Annex: Another card I am iffy on, it helps, but sometimes 2 life isn't enough, I guess it helps in the aggro matchups but it is worth considering. Annex works best in decks where the "mental calculus" is already rough considering your board state (i.e. good creature presence) and Annex adds to it. However, it isn't as good as Ghostly Prison and Propaganda Though it does at least protect planeswalkers

If you decide to drop Blightsteel Colossus, Metalworker may possibly not be needed?

Bloodforged Battle-Axe: another that I see the utility, but there are better cards

I'll be brewing her soon too but essentially, it's a reverse Kaalia of the Vast.

Play good looting spells like Faithless Looting and Burning Inquiry

Wheels are your friend too Wheel of Fortune and Wheel of Misfortune are all stars Dark Deal is decent and if you're on more of a budget Wheel of Fate

Creatures should be a mesh of good etb creatures, fat things you wouldn't normally be able to cast, things that trigger upon combat damage being delt and a good mesh of usful legendary vampires

Phoenometroid on Licia, First Sword of the Mardu {Primer}

2 months ago

I've been working to push Licia, Sanguine Tribune for quite a while, especially more into that Mardu Philosophy I came to love. I found out VERY quickly I get a mass amount of hate from my Edgar Markov with my playgroup for how aggressive he is for sure. I do very much love playing themed or tribal based decks. I discovered that I play too many Mardu decks which thins out my card availability for keeping all the decks solid until I amass extra copies of stables. Seeing this framework and the stratagems you provide for Licia is just WOW!

Sadly I don't have many of those expensive cards to piece in now, Wheel of Fortune, Necropotence, Scrubland, Dark Confidant, Enlightened Tutor, Sensei's Divining Top or Tithe but I'm sure I can found some counterparts to use instead.

What do you think of replacing Glory-Bound Initiate with Lone Rider  Flip? Also if you have any deck builds or ideas for Kelsien, the Plague I'd love to know your feedback on that, he's another Mardu favorite of mine.

Pakku on Melek, Izzet Paragon [PRIMER] (EDH)

You can go ahead and replace some of the more expensive cards like taking out Personal Tutor and Time Spiral. There are some changes as well that I might reccomend such as the Wheel of Fortune could be switched out to Valakut Awakening  Flip so that other players don't get resources or just Windfall. Gamble could be a Solve the Equation. Imo these don't change the power dynamics pretty much at all while hugely reducing the deck's cost. Cut off Mana Crypt and it should be very affordable

On what cards to cut, a few come to mind immediately. Portent is pretty bad, Mana Flare should be taken out immediately. Ruby Medallion, Mystic Speculation, Long-Term Plans (this should honestly be Solve the Equation in my list as well), Muddle the Mixture is played only for the potential transmutes so it can be cut out, Twincast has little to no use in comparison to Reverberate. Dream Cache works well with Melek out as a potential value engine but it can be cut out as well.

I'd probably slot in AEtherize, Blasphemous Act, Disrupt Decorum, Reins of Power and maybe even test out some other 2-in-1 wipes that gets you cards back like Volcanic Vision, there are other fun cards like Blustersquall which enables you to tap an opponent's board in their upkeep but I'll leave thinking those to you.

RhythmBeast on Rielle - Izzet Discard

3 months ago

I love Rielle deck builds. I always feel like Rielle was one of the overlooked bombs from Ikoria. I've been piloting a similar build for a while now, and I've found the deck does some real fun stuff pretty quick. I think the hardest decision with putting Rielle as the commander is deciding which direction to go with Izzet possibilities. I think it's obvious that you've gone the route of using Rielle's ability to simply dig to combos. Here are a few cards I think could suit the deck: Gamble, Jace's Archivist, Illuminate History, Fervent Mastery, Lier, Disciple of the Drowned, Prismari Command, The Locust God, Spark Double, and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces. Then there are cards that may or may not be stupid expensive, but helpful: Kozilek, the Great Distortion (and/or any of the "owner shuffles their graveyard into their library" Eldrazi), and Wheel of Fortune.
