Wishclaw Talisman Discussion

Snowmen1 on Help finding interesting cards to ...

Here's some stuff that caught my attention over the past few sets. Dreadhorde Arcanist, Wishclaw Talisman (looks like you can activate, hold priority, and sac it. May be something for a new eggs combo deck idk) , Charming Prince (saw brief play, but Im thinking maybe use it in a taxes shell to get an Akroma, Angel of Fury out on turn 3 using vial), theres a cycle of cards like The Cauldron of Eternity (of which this one seems like a great card to get a Metalwork Colossus out with), Fae of Wishes (which saw brief play in places but may be cool in a control shell), theres Elvish Reclaimer (which could go in a variety of shells, especially a Spreading Algae deck that I really want to see made).

I would also suggest trying to take a look at the changes that have been seen by modern such as the mox ban. Maybe something you could look at is making an affinity deck with Arcbound Ravager among other classic cards that no longer have a home.

Some decks that Im working on right now that you may also like to work on are BG Undying (which has been a lot of fun and felt very good), and Stompy (which is not the most compelling, but is very underrated, and got some new toys.)

Other cards I know have interested people I know would be: Brought Back, Resplendent Angel, Goblin Engineer, Astral Drift, and Echo of Eons (pretty much just look at modern horizons).

Hope some of this is of interest for you.

Wishclaw Talisman > Scheming Symmetry you should never be helping someone in cedh with a tutor like Scheming. but wishclaw at least lest you pop off on your turn without someone tutoring a counterspell to stop you.

Gamble > Diabolic Tutor diabolic tutor is just bad, 4 mana to tutor something is really bad unless it's letting cheat mana cost somewhere else, like Natural Order

unless you add more discard synergy, i would cut Sire Of Insanity and Protean Hulk you don't have a consistent way to dump them in the gy to cheat their cost. i would even consider cutting Mikaeus too, as it is one of the more expensive ways to activate your persist combo.

and since you're going for the persist combo it looks like: Putrid Goblin is a decent plan B if murderous redcap is off the table. Grumgully, the Generous is probably the better replacement to mikaeus. and with that said, Goblin Recruiter becomes a great line to get your persist combo if Korvold is out. top to bottom: Dockside Extortionist, Vexing Shusher (if you need the protection), grumgully, Skirk Prospector, and putrid goblin or the redcap.

i highly recommend Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast just for some interactions. it's a good way to shoot rhystic study at the least, but you can protect your fairly fragile persist combo as well. unless you're magically playing in a meta without any blue, which for cEDH standards is absurd.

also some other cheap ways to draw cards is also something i noticed this deck missing, all you really have is library, dark confidant, and Korvold himself. decent add-ons are: Oakhame Adversary, Mindblade Render, Azra Oddsmaker, or Runic Armasaur

if you end up cutting all the top end (cmc 5+) cards out, you can also add in ad nauseum for a very strong draw power.

Cards i really like for the deck are Deadeye Navigator, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Rune-Scarred Demon, Soul Herder, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. A lot of cards i do like but didnt put in top 5 cause i think its like your preference on fav ETB triggers you wanna add.

Cards in the maybeboard i dont think should go in are, Baleful Strix, Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Render Silent, Disinformation Campaign and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Also Wishclaw Talisman will only be really good if you have repeatable ways to flicker it probably at instant speed, and Thassa's Oracle you will only want if youre going for a combo finish with her.

@king-saproling: (I apologize for mentioning you again; you okay there?)

OK. The Amount in question to cut has increased to 12 -> 15. But the stakes for cutting that much to 99 + 1 has never been more complicated. There are also some Key pieces I DON'T wish to call them quits for surprisingly decent Reasons. Here they are w/ Explanation & the like:

Meekstone: Uh, Oko, Thief of Crowns? YA RLY. Oko isn't just a Great Cook, he can turn an opponent's Creatures & Artifice to 3/3 Ability-less Elks. Tap them all, & your opponent's better have an option ready. But if you say Humility needs to be cut, do you think this combo can make for a better alt?

Teferi, Time Raveler: Uh, why? This card has High Synergy Value not just from Bouncing Stuff, but in particular: Wishclaw Talisman. These two are one of the best Combos for Superfriends. Just Tutor with the Claws...

Master Tang: THEY HURT LIKE CRAP, MAN! (No joke; he literally said that.)

...Bounce it before ANY opponent can nab it from you, & you got Synergetic Tutoring. The scariest part is that this Combo was very powerful while Teferi was around in Standard. YES. This was a legitimate Combo in Standard. Which also meant ARENA players had to deal with this Hell Clock. Ol' Master Tang himself wasn't kidding about his comment on Iron Claws.

(Reference of Note: Master Tang from Kung-Pow: Enter the Fist)

Ral Zarek: ... Err... Why no to him? He's got ALOT going here. He can Tap an Opponents Perms or Untap them, & yours too if you choose & Weiß Versa (There's a Bad Pun there). This can be set to Tap Artifacts & Creatures for stuff like Nahiri, the Harbinger to EXILE. These Perms don't even include the "Nonland" Restriction, so if an opponent has a response, you can Tap that land to restrict Mana Pool Levels. This also goes for their Rocks/Boulders to restrict their mana further. But in any way possible, as long as it is Not an Instant or Sorcery, IT'S A TARGET BEGGING TO BE WASTED OR EVEN REUSED. So much versatility, & the Scariest part? This ability increase Ral's Loyalty by +1. Not even 0 or even -1; this Loyalty Ability is not only potent, but it increases Loyalty. Though I will agree that -2 is lackluster in practice, though God help us all if Ral's -7 is altered in a way that the Amount of Heads in such a Game of Chance is blown to more than 5 shots for an Extra Turn each... XP Trust me, he's amazing.

I'd love to mention more, but these are my top contenders for what should stay (Unless Lethal Vapors can be used w/o something like Pithing Needle or even A creature like this...)

That said, What would your Final 15 cuts be in your case? I'd keep what I said (& Lethal Vapors if I had a noncreature Perm that is a Multi-Targeting Pithing Needle) for the reasons just said, & they sound like fine points to me. I'll try all I can otherwise, but for now, What would be your 15 cards to cut here?

(Can't believe I cut Tezzeret, Artifice Master; maybe something can be cut for him back in... Still owe you big time.)

There isn't a good replacement for Timetwister, combo wise Memory's Journey does the same; refill wise you can use Windfall/Wheel of Fortune/Day's Undoing for budget.

Any tutor can replace Imperial Seal: Sterling Grove, Diabolic Intent, Wishclaw Talisman, Scheming Symmetry.

@king-saproling: Okay. Here's the situation thus far. I only need 7 Cards to be cut for the Magic Numeric that is 99 + 1. However, the Cards Below are some important pieces that can do a lot more than you think:

Fellwar Stone

Grafdigger's Cage

Humility

Karmic Justice

Lethal Vapors

Meekstone

Privileged Position

Sorin Markov

Tainted AEther

Teferi, Time Raveler

Thran Temporal Gateway

Wishclaw Talisman

Ral Zarek

Before going over the list of Insane Mentality, I've some Questions needing Answers:

  1. While it goes w/o Question that Oko, Thief of Crowns is busted as hell, does his being in this deck really make Humility obsolete? If not, why cut the latter?

  2. After some thought, I wanted to put back in the Stax/Pillowfort cards in question. Which ones?

  3. Here are some Combos that might question several Status Quos, but are awesome IMO:

Teferi, Time Raveler + Wishclaw Talisman : Infinite Tutors w/o ever giving your opponent the Claws is very good in the Synergy Field.

Lethal Vapors + Tainted AEther : Instant Lock; but I ponder about if it is worth putting in; looks epic though...

Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Doubling Season + Ral Zarek (& other Ral Zarek Combos.): There is a good reason ol' Ral is a key player here; he can Tap, & Untap any Permanent in the same Loyalty Ability; which really helps Nahiri, the Harbinger when needing to Exile whatever in a pinch. Also, His Ultimate will not only Flip for some Heads, but also increase Aminatou's -1 Stock in some way or another. Even w/o Cloudstone Curio to bounce either Walker, you might have a good chance of winning w/o Expropriate level Game Enders.

Any of them good? There are others, but I just wanted some thought from you. Would you want to put any of this back in? I understand some are either Meh, Mana Cost Hungry, or just too expensive to cast, but w/ 7 cards left to chop, & the above including some great ideas to add upon:

Fellwar Stone

Grafdigger's Cage

Humility

Karmic Justice

Lethal Vapors

Meekstone

Privileged Position (?)

Sorin Markov (?)

Tainted AEther

Teferi, Time Raveler

Thran Temporal Gateway

Wishclaw Talisman

Ral Zarek

I'm fully aware you gave these cards the "VETO", but even here, I believe they have a good place in this deck. I think I already said enough. That said, if you want all of them in; that's a 13 card cut in some way; 12 as ol Ral #1 will be in anyway for high versatility.

So, 12 Max to cut, but 8 at least reaches 99 + 1. I'll try & find a deck of yours I could help with a Suggestion or 2, but I'd rather wait until IKORIA Spoilers Shape Up.

...i seriously owe you at least that...

Hi Koka and Bacon-wrapped_Magic,

Sorry for the delay again, University started back up again recently.

Spicy testing list:


Underworld Breach

Angel's Grace

Grand Abolisher

Hushbringer

Torpor Orb

Wishclaw Talisman


Breach will get in somehow lol, just need to find a slot for it like many of the other cards listed. And with breach I also want to add Angel's Grace so the wheel combo does work. I also want to test without Leonin Relic-Warder so I can include cards like Hushbringer or Torpor Orb which would deal better with the increase in Dockside Extortionist or fish consult decks within the meta.

Using either invention or By Force might be a good solution to the godo Issue. Usually we try not to add too much interaction since it dilutes the main combo line of the deck.

mccabej140: Bottomless Pit can be a little dangerous, yeah. I wouldn't necessarily cast it if I have an absolutely critical combo piece in hand. But it also massively screws with our opponents (they all have the same problem, where it can decimate their combos or hit their lands), and for that reason I prefer it over Necrogen Mists. I'd go with personal preference on this one -- but I think Rakdos is best when it's built in a risky way ;)

Regarding Wishclaw Talisman -- hard pass. We want to actively avoid our opponents getting unconditional tutors, especially since they'll always tutor for a draw source and undo all our hard work.
